BREAKING: Anonymous Releases Police Recordings From Day of Ferguson Shooting

The city of Ferguson, Missouri is in chaos following the police shooting of an unarmed African-American teenager. Ferguson, a predominantly African-American area, is run by a government and police force in which black people are grossly underrepresented–and the mostly white have proven themselves to be exactly the opposite of the most enlightened individuals regarding race relations. The African-American community’s anger has spilled over into the streets, which has unfortunately resulted in rioting and looting.

Anonymous has vowed to get involved, and that simple justice for Michael Brown is not enough. The collective of hacktivists wants change–real change–from the top down. The hackers promised that if the protesters were harassed by police, they would begin releasing info–but since that warning police have continued a campaign of chemical warfare against protesters, and one more life has been lost at the hands of law enforcement.

The hacktivists posted audio of St Louis police dispatch on the day that Brown was murdered.

We are Anonymous.

These files compiled in this video contains audio of St. Louis police dispatch from the date of August 9th 2014, the day Mike Brown was murdered by a Ferguson PD officer. We have released these tapes to the public so as they are able to get a sense of the atmosphere the moments before and the hours after Mike Brown was shot.

ST. LOUIS COUNTY POLICE DISPATCH AUDIO TAPES, AUGUST 9TH 2014 11:05 AM – 6:05 PM, INCIDENT IS REPORTED AS “CROWD CONTROL PROBLEM” AT 12:05PM, NO SHOOTING MENTIONED UNTIL IT IS CALLED IN TO DISPATCH BY WITNESS. FERGUSON PD DENIES IT KNEW ANYTHING AT THAT TIME. NO EMS WAS CALLED.

The dispatcher begins to talk about Brown at the 10-minute mark.

They are getting information from the news? Before it is even called in by it's own?

I have seen it.  It's like a 30 sec video. With no idea of when the shooting had happened before the video was started and no idea on when the med team arrived. And if you look at the officer's next to the car~ it has been reported on that at least 1 of those officers are black. The video is too grainy to truly tell, IMO.

Ferguson only has 53 officers.  and around 3 are black.  The city has tried to recruit black officers and have failed for almost 5 years.

I don't neccessarily think the officers are senselessly shooting blacks.  AND I don't think this happened "by the books".  There is a gray area where the truth lies...  

But when the community has decades of racial tension (even beyond the police)~ what is a community to do? What would happen if all of the white officers just quit?  What if they said, it's not worth it.  Why work in a community where no matter what you do~ the community will turn their back on you.  Even if the cops have legit reasons for detaning, questioning, arresting blacks, anyone? 

Ferguson has high crime rate.  IMO, not until the police walk away~ will the community realize just how much good the Ferguson police DID do for the community.  But now it is tainted because of this incident

Riots and Anonymous posters~ They aren't helping.  They are only feeding the mob mentality.  

The police force has recieved death threats.  Now, if this officers name is released~ do you think he will be safe? If his act was an accident, malicious, etc then let the investigation determine this.  Releasing the officers name will not help anyone.

Breaking! US Militarized Police Provoking War Zones: Ferguson Blood, Tear Gas, Chaos. LA Protest Next.

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 19:37
 

 

In Ferguson tonight, militarized police have assaulted and arrested reporters where helicopters, armed vehicles, rubber bullet and tear gas canister assaults are pounding peaceful protesters in attempt to take over the streets. Protesters refused to move, resisting what appears to be all white American thugs in uniforms inciting race riots with military grade weapons deployed by the Pentagon.

 

Government Inciting Riots

 

Huge bangs and gas everywhere is how eyewitnesses have described the scene in Ferguson tonight, five nights after police shot to death a black youth, Michael Brown, multiple times while he had his hands in the air on Saturday.

 

People are choking and running in the streets where chaos marks the fifth night after the police killed Brown. The rioting did not start until Sunday night, after police publicly blamed the young man with his hands in the air where, according to his friend and witness, police "shot him like an animal."

 

Police are firing canisters of tear gas in a peaceful and quiet neighborhoods where hardly anyone is on the streets. Police even fired tear gas at black youth holding a sign that reads, "Don't Shoot!"

 

Police have blocked access to the cars there, according to Livestream reporters. People are locked into the area under siege.

 

"People are in shock" over being treated this way with tear gas when they have been peacefully protesting, according to the reporters.

 

"My right side is bleeding," the Livestream reporter sais. "I got hit with a bullet."

 

He later said, "I just don't wanta get shot again, man! That thing hurts. Oh, my God, I'm sore."

 

Police have been firing at other reporters Wednesday night, including a crew from Al Jazeera.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Earlier Wednesday, police assaulted and arrested two reporters: one from the Washington Times and another from Huffington Post.

 

Huffington Post reporter Ryan Reilly spoke to MSNBC's Chris Hayes on the phone tonight minutes after he and Washington Post reporter Wesley Lowery were released after arrested by Ferguson police. Reilly told Hayes he was never informed why he was being arrested.

 

Reilly said he was sitting in McDonald's when a SWAT team decided to close it and ordered everyone to leave. Apparently he wasn't leaving quickly enough, he said, because one officer "decided that he was going to help me pack and grabbed my things."

 

Reilly was then arrested. He said the officer "used his finger to put a pressure point on my neck."

 

Reilly did not discover: 1) what he was under arrest for, and 2) the identity of the officer who arrested him, despite repeated requests.

 

Reilly said the officer even "slammed my head against the glass purposefully... and then sarcastically apologized for it."

 

 

In a separate incident in the small Pennsylvania town of Muhlenberg, when a house guest threatened suicide with a kitchen knife two weeks ago, he was not met by compassionate and skilled mental health professionals. He was instead met with a highly militarized police response.

 

Journalist Ben Sawn says that response "was more akin to that of a battlefield in Afghanistan than a mental health crisis in small town America. Sadly, this type of police response is becoming more and more frequent as the police state grows."

 

Central MO Sheriff Vehicle

 

In a similar incident in the small town of Fort Bend, Texas earlier this year, Michael Blair was threatening suicide with a knife and police response was to shoot and kill him.

 

Over the past two weeks, police responses to the Muhlenberg crisis, to their killing a Ferguson youth with his hands in the air, and LAPD shooting to death a mentally unstable man facedown this week have highlighted America's increasing police militarization. The latter two incidences also highlight how the militarized police force is provoking urban warfare.

 

In the case of the small PA town, the police entered and cornered the man into a bedroom where he then barricaded himself. At that point, the Berks County Emergency Response Team was called in to take over.

 

"Rather than de-escalate the situation using mental health professionals, the police doubled down on their high-pressure tactics and militarized response," wrote Benn Swan at the Free Thought Porject.

 

In Ferguson, rather than call a town meeting where police could apologize and professionals skilled in could de-escalting violence, instead, their top officer blamed Michael Brown for being shot multiple times with his hands in the air.

 

Naturally, that accusation sparked the outrage and violence ripping the small mainly black community apart today.

 

Being young and black in LA is as much of a crime as it is in Ferguson, according to many LAPD officers, and to Facebook user Naemi Gil who wrote about the police shooting of Ezell Ford on Monday.

 

 

In the case of the LAPD shooting to death a black, mentally ill man, Ezell Ford, 25, in his back while he was facedown on the ground in front of an officer Monday night, it was as though those cops had read from the same warped training manual that the Ferguson police department had. The LAPD blamed the mentally ill man shot facedown on the ground for his death. It is remarkable that with the already Ferguson besieged for four days, LAPD made that statement.

 

Again, naturally, that reponse sparked more outrage and set the stage for violence there starting Saturday night when a massive protest is planned.

Will the militia arrive on the protest scene in LA as it is said they are doing in Ferguson? The militia's frst words on its website are: "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. - 2nd Amendment."

 

Are police officers just that stupid or are they just that itchy to use their military weapons and training? Or, are they deliberately provoking civil unrest, inciting riots, as the US military excels at doing in other countries?

 

Whichever, their heavy-handed tactics are working in some circles, according to David Carson's coverage of the Ferguson riots.

 

If the militarized police tactics work as well in Los Angeles this Saturday night as they've succeeded in Ferguson for five days, one might brace for an even uglier and more shameful scene in LA this weekend.

When "Anonymous" releases the name of the cop it will be game over for that cop.  His life will never be the same. It will never be the same anyway, he killed a man.  The fact is this cop shot an unarmed man multiple times,  and the dept. handled it poorly the whole way.  What response do we expect?  If the people of Ferguson sat around & waited for something to happen, nothing would happen.
