Missouri crowd after shooting: ‘Kill the police’

From page A9 | August 10, 2014 |

FERGUSON, Mo. — A large crowd of angry residents confronted police officers Saturday afternoon, yelling such things as “kill the police” after an officer fatally shot a male in a St. Louis-area neighborhood.

Officer Brian Schellman, spokesman for the St. Louis County Police Department, said “a couple hundred” people came out of area apartment buildings after an officer with the Ferguson Police Department shot and killed the male. Schellman did not identify the person who was shot or say what prompted the shooting.

Schellman said some people yelled threats toward the police, and officers said they thought they heard gunshots from the crowd. There were no reports of additional injuries, he said.

After the crowd gathered, police at the scene called for about 60 other police units to respond to the area in Ferguson, which is a city of about 21,000 residents located a few miles north of downtown St. Louis. He said the crowd was under control by about 5 p.m. and several of the additional officers had left the area.

St. Louis County police were called in to investigate the cause of the shooting, Schellman said.

    Proof these people are not "anti-violent" they are only anti-violent when it comes to their ilk, but very violent when it comes to anyone else. Shame to Hell on them.

    There's no justification for "kill the police," but there are troubling facts about this case that need to be investigated. Fortunately, the local police immediately asked for an independent investigation from the county and FBI. There will be no cover-up here, and we can expect cooler heads to prevail. If not, St. Louis has bigger problems.

    The St. Louis County Police are in charge of the investigation. On Saturday, John Gaskin, a member of the St. Louis County NAACP, said the FBI should get involved "to protect the integrity of the investigation." And State Sen. Jamilah Nasheed, D-St. Louis, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch she would ask the U.S. Justice Department on Monday for a formal investigation.
