Could have been anything. I could easily see a case where a cop goes to drive off, the kids either yell an expletive or flip the cop off, and then the cop goes back to teach them a lesson. Easily. Cops don't like taking shit. You don't afford the wrong cop the "proper respect" and you're being combative, or resisting arrest, and cuffed or pressed down against the pavement.

Nothing about this part surprises me. Happened every time they brought in outside riot police officers at UMass too. You have an us vs. them and a mob mentality on both sides, and the police find one or two dumb people and use it to crack down on everyone, including the 98% that is just standing around and posing no threat.

I've stayed out of the rest because we have no real idea what happened during the confrontation, but I completely believe the cop started it. Good cops can handle that situation easily - either ignore it or use a calm reasonable tone when telling the person to move to the sidewalk. Arrogant dicks who feel the need to assert their power will gun the engine back there and escalate the situation. Even if the kid did start a physical altercation then the whole situation was caused by a cop who felt he had to assert dominance.

Par for the course. I've seen plenty of cell phones/cameras "confiscated" and people threatened with arrest for recording police (and when the person actually knew their rights and refused they'd switch to the ubiquitous "Failure to Disperse")

Fact is, the police basically do have carte blanche to do what they want in the moment. Everything gets thrown out in court, but there's no punishment on the police side. Maybe some " extra training" or a paid suspension until the hearing clears them.

Jeopardizes the operation if they're tipping it ahead of time. (Sounds as they this occurred at the staging area, based on the McDonald's bit).

You are - occasionally I peek in on ignore-listed folks.

It's not even about me taking offense - I don't care what you think of me. It's just your whole shtick is so tired man. You never fail to take ANY current event, political or otherwise, and bend it to your standard "I'M A LIBERTARIAN...I'VE BEEN SAYING THIS FOR YEARS...HAR HAR STUPID (R)'s AND (D)'s WHO ARE JUST SAYING IT NOW."

We all get it alright - you can stop, and maybe...idk - contribute something actually topical and useful instead of the same old cliched post by you.

Too bad I'm on ignore because I posted what the police statement is going to be a couple of pages ago and it got lost in the back and forth over some Internet article. Seems to happen to everyone I guess? Your problem is you take it so personal. I'd report you telling me to shut the fuck up but I don't care that much though you are the one way out of line in this thread.

I think that's probably what it boils down to. For some cops, these aren't citizens. They're subjects. And if those subjects don't bow to their feudal masters, their betters, they get pissed.

I already told you - I don't take it personally. I don't take anything on the internet personally at all. I just roll my eyes because you never miss an opportunity to toss in your cliched "Libertarian superiority" post. And every so often I think it's important that somebody calls you out on that - just as every so often I think it's important that somebody call out JIMGA for his stuff.

Go ahead and report it - If I get boxed for saying STFU that would be...unprecedented.

No it didn't occur there. And it didn't "jeopardize" anything; it was just illegal.

You responded in anger to something I wrote to another board member and not to you. Seems to be the definition of taking something personally.

I got no further on this (non) story than the Twitter stream posted here.

I was strictly making a stab at it based on a) how often I've seen/known of operations being staged from places such as McDonald's and b) the phrasing that made it sound like the encounter was pre-operation.

STL County Police Chief Belmar: "We've done everything we can to demonstrate a remarkable amount of restraint."

Right - aside from shooting the unarmed teenager. And the full-scale military response. But yeah - everything SINCE then...

People confused about the right wing's lack of solidarity with #ferguson, you may not have taken racism into account.

It probably took a ton of restraint to only use one canister of tear gas on these reporters.

Given the typical media bias (and I've been on both sides of that don't forget), it's an enormous amount of restraint.

Anonymous is on the case.

If these are legit, this also demonstrates the futility and counter-productiveness (at least from a PR perspective) of the police attempts to impede communication flow. The ability of hackers to obtain these files along with the ability of the press and the general public to easily document and disseminate information to the outside world really should make the police leadership think carefully about the implications of their decision-making. Regardless of police intent, attempting to discourage press coverage and arresting reporters are going to have consequences--at the very least, giving the leadership yet another headache to deal with that could have easily been avoided.

Speaking of anonymous...

Anonymous launches cyber attack on Ferguson after teen shooting | WTVR.com

It looks like they have been successful in their threats to compromise the City government's communications infrastructure and the security of its employee's personal information.

Anonymous have leaked the shooter's identity, too.

I'm not a liberal (though I've certainly become less conservative the past few years), but I'm pretty sure I voiced reservations concerning the lockdown of Boston last year.

Nope - not at all. I just think it's important that people call you out on your tired constant refrain from time to time, and since nobody else was, I decided to.

There was no anger. You haven't seen my anger if you think that was "anger." I don't get "angry" at internet stuff.
