Man arrested in connection to shooting of two officers in Ferguson, police say

Police have made an arrest in connection with the shooting last week of two police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, the St. Louis County Police Department said in a tweet Sunday.

Details of the arrest were sparse, but a jail spokesman confirmed Sunday a man was there on a 24-hour hold for assault against a police officer and firing at or from a vehicle.

On Friday, police said they were still chasing leads in the case and insisted the trail had not gone cold.

      Maybe Jesse Jackass will honor us with his presence. He can pass the hat to fill his wallet then lead us all in a rousing rendition of We Shall Come Undone. White’s in the back please or on the ground unconscious.

    • I bet Jeffrey ain’t sayin much either.

    Let’s hope he’s a senior citizen by the time he is released from prison.

        Probably because it shows him making gang signs and posing with wads of cash and guns…

        Bad for the “Poor black man being framed by the po-leece” narrative.
        delete it before it reaches the public.

          I get a “you don’t have permission” comment and no access.

            You need to log in to Facebook.

            And yes there are lots and lots of photo’s of him making gang signs with cash.

            Saggy pants, neck tattoos….. check and check

            I tried a third browser and it worked. Try logging into Facebook first before trying to access his page.

    • Thanks.

      e too. Except the perp has been arrested for only “assault” and NOT “attempted murder”. SO one can see that the DA is going easy on this shooter. He won’t be in jail for long.

    His claim from the press conference information seems to be that he’s just a gangbanger who got into a fight with some of the protesters and was shooting at them, only accidentally hitting the two cops. We’ll have to see how that holds.

  • Uncle_Waspy

    Gangbangers couldn’t hit the broadside of a barn if their lives depended on it. Here’s a little YT hint, don’t hold your piece sideways; stop trying to be cool all the time and just get the job done.

  • Well I must say congrats idiot …with da god teefers shooter, thanks to you even more people will distrust folks who have a similar skin color like yourself, you have done your country proud, ya dumb@#$.Let’s hope he spends all the rest of his birthdays behind bars!

        Here’s a comment I left on a youtube video about the yahoos at the Police station.

        It jogged my memory about the other ” Man Of Peace ” from back in 1922 . Note how I insert Holder and Obama along with Sharpton which seems fit for this story from Ferguson .


        ** Remember how Obama told these thugs that it’s their right to a non-violence protest?**

        Well, read this about Gandhi being a man of Peace that fired up crowds for his version of Justice and ended up attracting the crazy killers that torched a Police while cops were inside.

        *Gandhi ( insert Obama/Sharpton) planned a massive non-violent campaign in Bardoli ( Insert Ferguson) , a county of 87,000; but news of how an Indian mob had murdered 23 constables by burning their police station reached him on February 8, 1922, the day it was to begin. Although this incident occurred 800 miles from Bardoli, he once again cancelled the campaign, this time before it had started; instead, he fasted for five days in penance.
        Yet the British Viceroy ordered Gandhi’s ( make it Holder/ Obama) arrest, and on March 10, 1922 Gandhi was given his only judicial trial by the British ( US Supreme Court) . He ( Holder/Obama) made no apology for his non-cooperation, which he admitted was legally seditious. To Justice Robert Broomfield he said*******************

        *The whole story behind the attack on the Police station was that the 22 Cops inside had burned to death from this mob of rabid savages that followed Gandhi because they stopped anyone from getting out , even when 2 more Cops arrived to see what happened, the mob tossed them into the fire for a total of 24 Officers burned to death.
        All of that madness was paved with good intentions by a Man Of Peace ( Obama) that wanted Justice on earth and peace with Muslims .

    if eric holder had a son this is what he would look like

    125 yard shot with a handgun.
    thats some fine shootin’ Babalooey

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      I had a similar thought.
      That’s some world-class pistol shooting.
      What I find even less believable was that he was shooting at the demonstrators or someone else.

      • mauser 98

        or Holder found a crackhead patsy……. naaaa…conspiracy stuff

  • Ho Hum

    And as always the double standard in reporting. If this had been a case of white cops shooting a black guy race would be in the headline and throughout the reporting. “White cops shot black man”. But because the race’s are reversed race suddenly doesn’t matter to the media. The story becomes “man arrested for shooting two cops”
