TUESDAY 8/19: Ferguson PD presented a table full of fabricated evidence at this morning’s press conference - allegedly seized from protestors and stopped cars. The Colt 45 Molotov with a white bandana was the crowning glory, turns out you can’t even buy glass 40’s in Missouri. Stay classy, FPD

I seriously think white supremacist are coming in the area to frame the protesters, but it could just be the cops

Colt 45 Molotov cocktail? What’s next, a watermelon incendiary bomb? A fried chicken pipe bomb? These jokers can’t even frame folks without their racism showing.

Here’s an article talking about the ban on glass 40s in St Louis and the surrounding areas, btw.

The people coming into Ferguson provoking violence against local protesters, be they opportunist wannabe radicals treating it like a revolutionary fantasy camp or police-planted provocateurs, are horrid and very real.

Never ever ever ever ever forget that the violence being directed at this community is being unilaterally instigated by police in an effort to enforce systematic white supremacy. Do not be distracted by the excuses authorities try to make for themselves.

@primitivemane have revealed a brand new track courtesy of @trvebrewing and Flatline Audio. “Loathe” is every bit as crushing and filled with hatred and despair as you’d expect. The track will appear on a new EP that we’ll be putting out next year. Until then, blast this one at flatline.trvebrewing.com. #primitiveman #loathe #doom #doommetal #metal #trvebrewing #flatlineaudio

[TW: GRAPHIC] Video from the day of Mike Brown’s shooting to the first night of protest

This video starts at 2:14 because I have read requests by the Brown family to take down photos of their son laying face-down, shot in the street. That said, the video shows Brown’s body being removed and loaded into a police SUV, not an ambulance. 

Where the video starts is important though. It shows the Ferguson community out in protest WITHOUT police presence. The picture we get is peaceful, however full of the heavy grit of a boy’s death. This changes IMMEDIATELY as droves of city and county police arrive, literally hopping out of squad cars and SUVs with assault rifles.

Chants of “Ku Klux Klan, here come the Klan!” start, after which a standoff ensues. It is important to note traffic was flowing before cops arrived, but after their arrival it completely stops. This shows us from the very start where the violence/obstruction was and has consistently been initiated and continued — with and by the police.
