FERGUSON, Missouri (PNN) - August 14, 2014 - In the aftermath of the fatal terrorist pig thug cop murder on Saturday of 18-year-old Michael Brown, a black man who was unarmed, massive protests erupted in the town of Ferguson, Missouri.
The protests were often tense, as heavily armed terrorist pig thug cops with rifles, body armor, and gas masks squared off against a large crowd of demonstrators chanting and marching. Some threw rocks, bottles, and Molotov cocktails.
On Wednesday, terrorist pig thug cops attempted to break up the protests by firing rubber bullets and tear gas into the crowd. At one point, they arrested two journalists for no apparent reason. By all accounts, the situation looked like it would only get worse.
Then the management changed, and boy what a difference a day makes.
On Thursday, Missouri Governor Jay Nixon relieved the local terrorist pig thug cop force and brought in the state’s Highway Patrol, led by Captain Ron Johnson, a native of Ferguson, to take over the situation. Their presence has not stopped the demonstrations, but a level of calm has begun to take hold in a city that had been on edge for nearly a week.
“With Highway Patrol, hugs and kisses replace tear gas in Ferguson,” reads the headline from The Washington Post's Wesley Lowery, who has been covering the protests for days.
“When I see a young lady cry because of fear of this uniform, that’s a problem.” Capt. Johnson told Lowery as he marched with the protesters. “We’ve got to solve that.”
