I really wanted to be done writing about Ferguson. But look at the news. It’s saturated with it. Why is it national news? Unarmed people get shot and killed by police frequently, and those all remain local stories. What makes this situation any different? Why have the local police been ordered to stand down? Why have journalists been threatened by the police and instructed to leave? Why did the Ferguson Police Chief hand the reigns over to DHS?
Remember when the Ferguson mayor stated that many of these looters and rioters came in from out of town? Maybe he was on to something. Now, there are suspicions that there are undercover agents working with DHS to incite violence and to keep the rioting going to instigate martial law. Writing for Freedom Outpost, Dave Hodges (no relation to me) reported the following:
In the past five days I have been contacted, via one of my most trusted sources, a member of DHS, who is opposed to the events and DHS involvement in Ferguson, Missouri. This source stated that DHS is running the Ferguson Police Department and that their actions are designed to antagonize and to provoke the locals to violence. He further stated that he believed that the ultimate goal is to inflame the local citizens to such a point martial law will be declared.
In an even more shocking revelation, this DHS source stated that the rioting and looting which followed the shooting death of 18 year old, Michael Brown, was encouraged and exacerbated by undercover DHS agents posing as members of the Black Panthers.
Lending support to this latest accusation of DHS complicity in the rioting was the behavior of the Ferguson Police Department during the looting. During the civil unrest, the behavior of the Ferguson Police was simply to create a perimeter around the looting and allow it to continue. This violates every tenet of law enforcement. It more resembles quarantine procedures practiced by DHS, Northcom and the National Guard. The police should have moved to intervene to stop the looting and prevent the spread of violence. If the situation were beyond the control of the police, then the National Guard should have been brought in. Given the revelation of the DHS source, it seems plausible that his story of wanting the violence to escalate appears to be the case.
A video from two years ago shows military vehicles patrolling the streets of St. Louis as part of a “training exercise.” Were they training for the Ferguson riots that they had planned? What do you think?
