Videos: Missouri protesters burn U.S. flag, assault cops

flagburningIt’s looking more and more as if protesters in and around Ferguson, Missouri, really want armed conflict.

Videos released over the last couple days show protesters burning flags and assaulting police with bricks and knives.  The protests over Michael Brown seemed to have died down a bit, but started back up when police shot and killed a teenager they say was armed.  Family members, however, claim he only had a sandwich…

Here’s a vine video of the flag burning, complete with a “Don’t Shoot” sign:

Here’s another video:

Apparently nothing says “justice for (fill in the blank)” like burning a flag.

Fox News reported:

Fox Now added:

Vonderrit Deondre Myers, 18, was fatally shot Wednesday by an off-duty St. Louis police officer, Myers’ attorney, Peter Cohen, said Thursday.

Dotson says while working security, the officers` attention was drawn to three African-American males near Shaw and Klemm. When the officer turned around in his car to approach the group, the young men started to run. The officer decided to follow the group in his car. After exiting his vehicle, he ran after a suspect through a gangway. That`s when the three suspects came together again.

According to the chief, one suspect approached the officer in an aggressive manner. The officer told him to stop and surrender but the suspect kept coming at the officer. The two began to fight. The suspect`s hooded sweatshirt came off and he started running up a hill. At that point, the officer noticed the 18-year-old with a 9 millimeter handgun. Dotson says the suspect turned around and fired three shots at the officer.  The officer fired back, shooting and killing the suspect.

The suspect’s 9mm handgun was recovered at the scene. The weapon was reported stolen on September 26th.

“This case seems much less suspect that the Michael Brown shooting, but at this point, protesters will yell and scream over any excuse,” The Right Scoop said.  And as usual, facts don’t matter…

Meanwhile, former New Black Panther boss Malik Zulu Shabazz has called for rebellion if Officer Darren Wilson isn’t indicted for murder.
