Associated Press: Two Police Officers Shot in Ferguson, MO


FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports two police officers have been shot outside the Ferguson Police Department.

The shots were fired early Thursday as police and protesters gathered outside the station after the resignation of police Chief Thomas Jackson on Wednesday.

Ferguson Lt. Col. Al Eickhoff tells the newspaper that he didn’t think either officer was from his department. Eickhoff says he doesn’t know the extent of the officers’ injuries.

    • Obama, Holder and the media are responsible for this.

      And PC wonks will scratch their asses and blame whitey.

      Thanks liberals. You wanted change. You got it. The loonies are in charge.

    This is the presidents fault. The police should walk and let the National guard deal with it.

    • David Murrell

      Betcha Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder are happy about now. Lot’s of rejoicing at the media on the Obama payroll (CBS News, MSNBC, NBC, ABC . the New York Times. The Canadian media cartel are happy about now.

      What are the talking points for Obama and his media pals? “The Ferguson police had it coming!”. Expect to hear a lot of that in the next couple of days, provided of course that the media bother to cover this story.

      The police and national guard should say were done your on your own.

    The real tragedy is that Ferguson is not an all-black town; it’s almost half-white.

    It’s obscene that the National Guard wasn’t given orders to shut this thing down back when it started.

    The weather must be getting better.. Its just about riot season in the cities..

      I want to see Obama get upset over the near 1000 Homicides combined for Detroit and Chicago that are mostly to Blacks and by guns.

      Meanwhile , a Black male beats-up a Brown immigrant store operator is OK but when that same Black male is shot by a cop for their aggression we see anger.

  • Hard Little Machine

    The cops and all local government there should resign and go home. Put Ferg under Federal control or no control. Either way.

  • Xavier

    Holder and Obama should be charged as accessories and inciting violence.

    Let’s all pitch in and get Ferguson a MOAB.

    I would say it showed considerable restraint by the cops not to fire back at the crowd. Given the in-your-face nature of the crowd, the fact they all seemed to enjoy the first cop getting shot and the general hostility of the situation it would have been easy for the cops to just blaze away.

    The fact that they didn’t says that they are not racists and that they understand that you don’t shoot random teens on the streets; you shoot criminals.

    Let it burn, stop responding to 911 calls.

  • Gaian

    Good picture of what a black looting, rioting mob looks like. The only failure of the Ferguson PD is that they did not spray the mob with automatic gunfire when they were shot at.
