When Gordon declared that, despite McSpadden’s objection, she would continue to sell items, her stands were torn apart by McSpadden’s cohorts (which included McSpadden’s husband and her mother). During the melee, Gordon said, she was punched by McSpadden and knocked to the ground. Additionally, Gordon told cops, McSpadden directed another individual to attack her.
I can hear the crazy hate from the Left already: Darren Wilson is about to become a father for the first time, he revealed during an exclusive interview aired on Wednesday.
Do Republicans have the balls to go after this? Under the president’s new amnesty, businesses will have a $3,000-per-employee incentive to hire illegal immigrants over native-born workers because of a quirk of Obamacare.
How can you not laugh at this nonsense? It’s not just a small business, it’s a “Gay-owned, Immigrant-owned” small business. Nah, identity politics hasn’t gone too far, has it?

aka blah blah blah, let’s appoint some friends to chat this up and spend tax dollars doing it: Just a few days ago, the Commission’s Advisory Committee in Missouri voted to investigate the issue of interactions in Missouri between law enforcement and communities of color, particularly those interactions that involve the use of force. The Committee will take testimony from police, government officials, community members and experts on community and police interactions.
I wonder if Schumer knew this was coming when he complained about the Obamacare focus as a distraction?

McCulloch was part of Obama’s infamous “Truth Squad,” which Milbank fails to mention. Looks like Dana’s panties are in a wad over him calling out the media.
Dana Milbank Spits, Sputters and Spews at Ferguson Prosecutor Bob McCulloch … and all but calls him racist, not to mention Milbank’s lack of compassion at the fact McCulloch’s dad was apparently a cop killed in the line of duty. Wow:
Ferguson reminds us that we still have a race problem in America. But the face of this problem is not Darren Wilson’s. It’s Bob McCulloch’s.
…Asked Monday night whether he had any regrets about the way he handled the case, McCulloch replied, “No, not at all.” This shouldn’t be a surprise, given McCulloch’s history. That his father, a police officer, was killed by a black suspect doesn’t by itself disqualify him, but his record should have….
Ironic given that they were early in publishing his address – not that this wouldn’t be the case anyway. If nothing else, it’s good to see some acknowledgement of the cost of all this to the cop. “… normality for Wilson, who Monday night was relieved at the news he wasn’t being charged in the killing of unarmed teen Michael Brown, may be elusive.
I’ve been quiet watching Paul make his early moves for a possible run in 2016. Too much of what I’m seeing looks like he’s not ready for prime time. This logic – and I hesitate to call it that – is stilted at best. It’s just too much of a reach. If he wanted to weigh in on Ferguson, fine. But twisting it this way to fit his own agenda is somewhere between silly and incompetent on the Dude, are you high? scale.
In the search for culpability for the tragedy in Ferguson, I mostly blame politicians. Michael Brown’s death and the suffocation of Eric Garner in New York for selling untaxed cigarettes indicate something is wrong with criminal justice in America. The War on Drugs has created a culture of violence and put police in a nearly impossible situation.
How bad is it? The New Yorker “raises questions about Obama’s judgment in a number of respects: in hiring Hagel in the first place; in his Administration’s failure to foresee the series of challenges the Pentagon is now facing; and in the execution of its efforts to roll back the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham.”
This guy doesn’t even bother giving lip service to the Constitution. The hecklers btw were mostly from the Left wanting more from him on immigration.
President Barack Obama told three people who repeatedly interrupted his latest speech on immigration to stop their yelling because he “just took an action to change the law.”

Two FBI officers were shot and wounded at a house in north St. Louis County early on Wednesday, though it was not immediately clear if the incident was linked to racially-charged unrest in and around nearby Ferguson, media reported.
The agents were responding to a situation involving a person barricaded inside a house and suffered non-life threatening injuries, local broadcaster KSDK said on its website. The FBI did not immediately respond to requests for comment. More via Two FBI agents shot at house near Ferguson unrest
I get this absolutely, but … “NOTHING SHADY ABOUT THAT: New York Times Publishes Darren Wilson’s Address – via Instapundit » Blog Archive » NOTHING SHADY ABOUT THAT….”
A quick Google gets you this below and I’m thinking to the extent your average Ferguson protester cares, they or someone they know is more likely to Google for Wilson’s address, than read the New York Times.
I watched this last night for the first time and was wondering how many people have actually viewed it. Certainly people can and will see what they want in it. But I would encourage you to watch it if you haven’t and really want to try and understand what happened that day and how it subsequently played out. Scroll a bit for the 20 minute video, much of it raw amateur video from the scene that day.
I’ve produced this video from clips taken from residents on the day Michael Brown was shot and killed. A number of the clips from across the street where Ace Johnson taped had to be spliced together from shorter clips, so you’ll notice a bit of editing.
Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson’s lawyers have issued a public statement following a grand jury’s decision not to indict him in Michael Brown’s shooting case, saying he acted ‘lawfully’.
Well, at least she’s not beating down a street vendor this time.
A grand jury has decided that police officer Darren Wilson will not face charges for shooting dead unarmed teenager Michael Brown.
