Mass protests continue to flood streets in the wake of Ferguson decision

NEW YORK – Protesters flooded the streets of 170 US cities across 37 states in solidarity with the demonstrators in Ferguson, Missouri. They are denouncing the grand jury’s decision Monday not to prosecute Officer Darren Wilson, who shot and killed unarmed teen Michael Brown.

In Manhattan, a massive protest shuts down some streets from Times Square to Union Square, bringing cars and buses to a standstill.

Members of progressive Filipino organizations marched with anti-police brutality protesters in New York City Tuesday night.

“The biggest issue that we want to highlight, is the issue of racism and systematic racism,” said Bernadette Ellorin, of BAYAN USA. “If it can happen to a young person of color like Mike Brown, it can happen to any young person of color including Filipino youth.”

“Ito’y isyu ng lahat ng mga immigrants at people of color,” said Bary Labao, another Filipino protester, “dahil tayo ay biktima at mabibiktima din ng systemang ito.”

Meanwhile, on its second day of protest in Ferguson, demonstrators gathered outside the police department, flipping a police cruiser and then setting it ablaze. Forty-four demonstrators were arrested Tuesday night.

“Once again, there are those that are stuck on violence, that embed themselves with the peaceful protesters,” said Capt. Ron Johnson, Missouri State Police.

Unlike the violent protests in Ferguson, Tuesday night’s protests were mostly peaceful.

Protesters say this is just the beginning. More anti-police brutality protests are expected in the coming days.

    Obama and Holder have been orchestrating the Ferguson white-hate-fest from the start.
    I didn’t know whether to cry or scream. NEVER NEVER have I ever heard any political figure deliberately inserting himself in such a way only to fan the flames of civil disobedience.This man is NOT for America and certainly not for justice.

    He Obama the only thing hes good and best at is stir up trouble in America. National leaders lead nations. They set fine examples when they’re great. Street agitators agitate. It’s just what they do because it’s all they can do, throw tantrums and incite others to do act out their violent, genocidal fantasies. That sourpuss look spoke volumes . For a self-proclaimed lawyer, you sure doesn’t seem to have much regard for the law, or even know much about it.

    these filipinos certainly are in solidarity with street thugs, misleading their own dispositions of law enforcement officers are into brutalizing people simply bc of being minorities. the reasonings of filipinos getting killed by the police as a minority are total hogwash. this is the same reasonings of the thugs in protest. anybody whether minority or not, who are stopped with probable cause by the police, then refused to follow police commands/instructions, engaged on police attack mode, the police will apply restraint of handcuff, that may knocked the resistive person to the ground. this restraint procedure is what the police were trained at the police academy, applied to uncooperative arrestee. the action of the ferguson dead thug was criminal, by hitting the officer, and grabbing the service gun of the officer, only thugs will do such violent scuffle with the police, in order to kill the police, instead the thug loss in the scuffle, and dead.

    We know the WH was involved on this. One week prior to the riot, Obama met the protestor leaders at the WH.And said “STAY THE COURSE”, what does he mean stay the course, what course? Instead of telling them if you destroy,loot and burn business establishment,all of you will be charges under civil right law. He waited for the riots,burnings, lootings on Ferguson, then in his speeches he is trying to show he is a peacemaker,that is your President..

      What a legacy for the Muslim Traitor. Two of Obamas big demographics , Muslims that will kill you if you say anything bad about them and their religion and black radicals who will steal and burn when you don’t agree with them and they don’t get their way. Don’t forget he encouraged those radicals he recently saw in the White House, “Stay the course”

      @Mario, have you notice Obama is not meeting with the people who’s homes or businesses were looted and burned to the ground, and their lives all but destroyed. Only with those who he can incite to further destruction.

    Delia, Noz and Mario, you are some ignorant and prejudice people. Now we know where you all are coming from. You all have showed your true colors. Stay the course means you can protest and speak your mind, but do it in a peaceful manner. President Obama has stated on numerous occasions that he was appalled by the violence and that he doesn’t condone it. Obviously you all have selective hearing and eye sight. If you had your eyes wide open you would of noticed that people from all walks of life and all hues were protesting nation wide. No, you all would of noticed because you all are a bunch of prejudice ignorant people.

      Hey Wil ,Your constant state of denial is a dead give away that your head is so far up your azz even you can’t pull it out lizard tongue.

      However, the worst racism I have ever witnessed in my life is from Obama. So explain how a POTUS should micro manage his own overt racism that precipitated rioting in a justified shooting by a police officer. You think that is how government works?

      Until Obama addresses the REAL issues of Ferguson such as certain blacks who have nothing but disdain for authority, black criminality, lack of education among the black community and unemployment/underemployment in the black community.

      Obama has to interject himself into way too many things that are not in his jurisdiction. Obama need to sit down and just shut up. We, the American people don’t care what he have to say anymore.If Obama had any honor he would want to discuss why there is so much unlawful behavior in black communities.

        Have you ever lived or been in a Black community? I doubt it. You’re so ignorant you can’t even spell ass. Only corporations can do anything about the unemployment rate. Once again your pea brain has been taken over by Fox News. He is the President of the United States, he is supposed to interject. Was President Johnson wrong for push for the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964? Was FDR wrong for desegregating the United States military? Was President Abraham Lincoln wrong for signing the Emancipation Proclamation? hmmmm … It looks like Presidents through out the history of the United States has interjected. Once again you know not what you speak of.

          I dont need to live in the black community to know and see the pattern of crimes. These riots are the result of a program initiated by the liberal cult that goes by this name, Organized Betrayal Achieves Massive Anarchy (OBAMA).

          Black lives only matter if they are killed by whites. Black on black murder is not worth the efforts of the liberal elites. The sorry a$$ Obama is the one that poisoned the wells and your part of the problem too.

          I know you’re an unhinged hoplophobe and double a$$ a spokesman for Charmin.As A supporter of OBAMA, You’d be better off Hanging your head in Obamas butthole Instead of spewing more lies like Obama .

          Pity Poor ” Wil ,” you have a problem , Suffering from a Classic Case of OXYGEN DEPRIVATION, Caused by Having your Head Wedged up their Master’s Butt ObamaObola.

          America’s Black Leaders Are Race-Baiting, Guilt-Mongering, Lying Liberals.
          It’s NOT about color.It’s about behavior! And this is how they speak .
          Why you ain’t,Where you is,Who you be.Sighhhhhhhhhh.

          Argumentum ad Hominem, one of the Liberal / Progressives shills tools of the trade.

          Wil your an Ass, Azz, and A$$.

            You still never address the questions you were asked. Did You know that 47% of the drug consumed in the US are consumed in the inner cities. I bet you can’t guess where the other 53% are consumed? Why is it for 5 lbs of cocaine one will get 5 years or less and for 5 lbs of crack one would get 5-10 years? I’ll tell you why. Cocaine is a drug of choice for most affluent whites (suburbs) and crack the inner city. So, let me get this straight if a Black or Brown person sticks up for the wrong done to them then they are race baiters? So maybe they should be good little Negros and Hispanics and not say anything just take it.

            Delia you are a lackey, a worm, a slave to who ever bids the highest or who ever has the most money.

            Don’t forget to read the Bill of Rights, if you know what they are and the 13th Amendment.

            What a load of crap you are Wil the Shill .So explain how a POTUS should micro manage his own overt racism that precipitated rioting in a justified shooting by a police officer ? You think that is how government works ?

            The flames just took on other forms and the covertness of racial hate has been stewed to an absulute perfection, No one does it better than Obama.

            (Wil say’s … Delia you are a lackey, a worm, a slave to who ever bids the highest or who ever has the most money.)

            Oh! ho ho Wil, I suggest you check your genealogy to confirm whether your father married your mother, because you certainly sound like a stupid b@$tard.
            Now go peddle your Liberal BS somewhere else .
