I’m not sure exactly on the “whys” here. Were the protesters afraid of breaking the law with other non-rioting citizens watching them? Were they scared of the guys legally walking around with guns?
From the video it appears that when the armed citizens showed up the police did too.
Perhaps that could have something to do with it.
After all, it’s not a concern if people are rioting and burning buildings down… but citizens legally carrying their own weapons in self defense… now THAT has to be watched carefully!
The link here is Infowars, I’ll give you that. However, it is reminiscent of many other circumstances where similar things have happened between armed citizens and Federal agents. Generally the citizens were volunteering and obeying the law. The Feds tried to BREAK the law to get them to leave.
Some are from news stories. Some I knew friends who were there in person to confirm the events. I don’t have a source in Ferguson, but it is plausible…even likely that this story is legitimate.
One part is entirely true… there IS a desire by the Feds to present a false choice between “Anarchy or Security State.” There is NO place in their rule book for citizens to take their own neighborhoods back and deal with their own problems.
I don’t know if it’s by design, or simple ignorance and incompetence. Perhaps it is a twisted world view by very uneducated people who don’t know history or how our legal system works.
However, the end result is the same. We are being constantly told to “stand down” and “shut up.” Don’t get involved. “Let us handle it.”
Well, that’s NOT how our country was founded. In fact, “letting someone else handle it” is EXACTLY how we GOT here. Neighbors used to know neighbors. You solved problems between people, not by involving the cops and legal system.
It’s not GUNS that made a difference in Dallas. It’s CITIZENS. Neighbors holding others accountable for their actions and reminding them that they are being watched and held to a higher standard.
