Authorities are expecting the worst in the Ferguson, Missouri, area and are preparing for the moment the grand jury’s decision is made public. According to Vocative, one person on a St. Louis “cop talk” forum, going by the screen name “A Concerned Cop,” issued a dire warning to residents in the area.
“If you do not have a gun, get one and get one soon. We will not be able to protect you or your family. It will be your responsibility to protect them. Our gutless commanders and politicians have neutered us. I’m serious, get a gun, get more than one, and keep one with you at all times.”
Other posts on the forum echo that sentiment, going so far as to label the protesters and activists in Ferguson as “terrorists,” and calling out local businesses that have identified themselves as supporters of the protests there.
Some users discussed using water hoses to “protect” the cops against the protesters. One, under the name “Retiree,” wrote, “I say if the protesters want to use shields and like equipment then the officers should incorporate using the fire dept and there (sic) hoses… With the wind and temps what a great way to put a sudden stop to marches and protests.” An anonymous user who said he was a cop replied, “We can’t even hit our sticks on the ground.”
As The Blaze noted, the identity of the alleged cop could not be independently verified.
Making matters worse, the forum has since been taken off-line.
Nevertheless, we know there are hundreds of DHS vehicles in the area. Whatever you do, though, don’t take pictures of them, or you’ll be labeled a terrorist and threatened with jail…
