Captain Ron Johnson of the Missouri Highway Patrol was appointed by Missouri Democrat Governor Jay Nixon to bring a “kinder, gentler” policing to Ferguson on Thursday.
On Thursday, Johnson ordered all SWAT teams disbanded and riot gear stowed away. He marched with protesters and hugged thugs. In short, it was the liberal utopia of “hug-a-thug” soft-on-crime philosophy.
They brought in free water for protesters and porta-potties for the protesters to pee in peace. They agreed to allow the protesters to protest all night long if they wished on the sidewalks.
Things were semi-calm Thursday, but last night, it was complete anarchy after the local protesters went home. Black thugs and hoodlums from out of town proceeded to loot scores of businesses. In a half-dozen cases, they burned down businesses.
Some of the businesses were looted for a second time since the outbreak of the violence!
Most troubling are multiple reports of police being ordered to stand down and not intervene or make arrests.
Business owners called the police and were given the run-around. One business owner said Capt. Johnson called him and said there were officers in front of his store and “everything was under control” while the owner was watching people carry cases of liquor out of the front.
Early this morning, after the worst of things died down, he went to his store and he brought his guns and his friends with guns. “There ain’t no police,” the man said while holding a rifle.
This morning, good Samaritans were out helping business owners clean up from the overnight mayhem.
If the legitimate authorities are going to turn a blind eye to rampant criminal predatory violence, it’s up to local residents to take up arms to defend their homes, business and property from violence and looting.
Three words will solve this crisis that has gone on for almost a week:
Looters will be Shot on sight
Whether it will be up to local business owners to protect their livelihoods or a more unified approach from police, it’s time to quit playing nice and letting these savage hoodlums trash the entire community of Ferguson, ruining it for the locals.
It’s time to restore order.
It’s time to shoot looters on sight.
For more coverage of the ugliness from last night – easily the worst mass-looting and rioting our nation has seen since the LA riots after the Rodney King verdict, if not longer, go to The Gateway Pundit. Also Fox2 has a series of good clips.
