With black protests/rioting/looting/violence a foregone conclusion at this point, the group put together a 19-point "Rules of Engagement" they demanded law enforcement in the city must abide by, and the white mayor of St. Louis happily consented to them.
In effect, he ceded the city of St. Louis and the future of the metropolitan area, over to the black mob (fueled by an unrelenting hatred of the civilization white people built, passed down to their progeny - white privilege - and dared to protect by passing laws that have a disparate impact by individual blacks incapable of collectively following them).
A region whose violence is already scaring away conventions, concerts, football games, and other economically-need events (because unlike the majority of the black residents of St. Louis and St. Louis County, these events have a positive economic impact on the region). [Ferguson echoes through St. Louis convention business, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 11-18-14]
About the only economic activity this black mob, who basically just received the keys to the kingdom with Mayor Slay's decision to negotiate with the black terrorists masquerading as "Justice for Mike Brown" militants, creates is in convincing unarmed white people to buy weapons (perhaps white people will be able to live out their "John Wayne shootout" fantasy...).
The so-called 'oppressed' now are in control of the city. [Mayor Slay: ‘Disruption’ Will be Allowed in St. Louis, CBS St. Louis, 11-19-14]:
St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay has requested 400 members of the National Guard to help in the city after the grand jury’s decision is announced in the Michael Brown case.
He has also agreed to some of the Don’t Shoot Coalition’s proposed rules of engagement.
In a letter to the St. Louis Board of Aldermen and the Public Safety Committee, the mayor said he considers “rules of engagement” a military term, and would prefer to call them “rules of conduct.”
He has agreed to let protesters occupy public spaces and even be “disruptive but not violent.”
“Like blocking the street or blocking a sidewalk for a specific period of time,” Slay told KMOX.
He also agreed not to shut down safe houses – where protesters meet to strategize.
The mayor wrote that the city will use the Guard troops to patrol with officers who are not at organized protests, and will assist individual officers to patrol and watch for random acts of violence or property damage.
Concerning the use of protective gear, the mayor said officers will be in normal uniform and only switch to protective gear if public safety becomes a concern.
“We have met many dozens of times with each other, with federal, state and other local officials, with protest leaders and protesters themselves. … I am absolutely convinced that the leaders of the demonstrations and the vast majority of demonstrators themselves are committed to non-violence,” the mayor said in the letter. “Change is necessary, inevitable and irreversible.”You can read the full letter from Mayor Slay, ridiculously addressing the demands of the Don't Shoot Coalition as if they represented an opposing general (instead of fighting for the same team/ the same system), here.
The list of 19 "Rules of Engagement" demands should have been greeted with thunderous laughter from those elected officials tasked with protecting the civilization whites created in St. Louis, for they must answer to those owning property (be it commercial or private) and trying to operate revenue - and tax - producing businesses in both the city of St. Louis and St. Louis County or else they've effectively dissolved their governmental duties.
But they, as this Washington Post article notes, negotiated on many of the 19 points crafted by the Don't Shoot Coalition.
Not only this, but the Dean of the St. Louis University School of Law wrote a letter, titled "Ferguson Support," where he stressed the schools commitment to educating another generation of lawyers on to 'social justice'... [Ferguson Support: A Message From the Dean, SLU.edu]:
The events of Aug. 9, 2014 in Ferguson, Missouri brought a national spotlight to the St. Louis region and many members of the SLU LAW community have stepped up, participating in the frontlines of this crisis and taking a role as advocates to help educate and bring our city together.
In the month since the death of Michael Brown, I have seen our Jesuit mission in action at the School of Law and have been heartened to see our community come together to help work toward solutions in Ferguson, but I am not surprised. The pursuit of justice for those unable to seek it on their own is woven into our fiber. We teach the basics of legal process and critical analysis essential to effective lawyering.
We feel it is within the mission of our law school and Saint Louis University to educate another generation of lawyers committed to social justice, to being men and women in service to others. As our region begins the process of healing and reform in the wake of Ferguson, I am confident the public at large will come to better know our mission. Below are examples of it in action.
Michael A. WolffDean and Professor of LawSocial Justice, or, a movement that serves to continuously erode the very fabric of civilization white people dared quilt centuries ago, until the moment arises when all evidence of its glory every existing are gone.
Those "Justice for Mike Brown" protesters, who hilariously are now in control of St. Louis' fate, wrote a letter to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch declaring their intentions, with facts, logic, and reason completely absence from their manifesto.
The collective hatred of the type of civilization white people create in their absence, where life, liberty, and social capital flourishes. [Opinion: Bringing attention to persistent injustice, 11-18-14]:
WHY WE ARE HERE
And make no mistake: Our cause is a call for basic human decency. All children deserve to live their lives in a way that allows them to fully achieve their potential. So we protest, we march and we stand because that opportunity was violently taken from Mike.
We are here to demand that human life has profound value, no matter its trappings, skin color, ZIP code or gender. We are here to focus the spotlight on the unnecessary loss of human life. Stories about assumed chaos after the return of the grand jury’s decision ignore the primary and central fact: an unarmed child was killed far, far too young.
We implore those that scorn and dismiss our protest to walk in our shoes. In too many communities, unarmed black youth, particularly males, are stripped of life and liberty by police officers. Many, far too many, of those unarmed children. And in our peaceful grief, we were met with weaponry meant only for times of war, and invective accusing Mike and our movement of thuggery that justified the violence.
The disruption we have therefore intentionally created reflects the disruption of life we will no longer tolerate. So, if we disrupt the status quo now, know that is an intentional choice. We seek to nonviolently mirror this violent, intolerable disruption of life in our communities. If this were your constant reality, we believe you would make the same choice.These are the people, courtesy of Mayor Slay and the numerous police departments who decided to work with the Don't Shoot Coalition, caving to their demands, that now control the city of St. Louis, Ferguson, and the fate of yet another major metropolitan region of America.
The only comparison one can make is the monologue from Bane in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises movie. Though most critics didn't understand the villain was engaging in a bit of satire - since his true goals where the complete annihilation of Gotham City - and was instead unleashing a socialist, French Revolutionary-style of misery upon the city, in actuality Bane simply unleashed agents of destruction using the rhetoric of those who babble for "social justice" and write illogical manifestos for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Allow us to quote Bane:
"Behind you stands a symbol of oppression, Blackgate Prison... We take Gotham from the corrupt, the rich, the oppressors of generations who kept you down with myths of opportunity, and we give it back to you, the people. Gotham is yours. None shall interfere, do as you please. Start by storming Blackgate and free the oppressed. Step forward, those who would serve, for an army will be raised. The powerful will be ripped from their decadent nests and cast out into the cold world that we know and endure. Courts will be convened, spoils will be enjoyed. Blood will be shed. The police will survive as they learn to survive true justice. This great city… it will endure. Gotham will survive."Your average black person believes Darren Wilson executed Michael Brown as he ran home to continue his crusade of curing cancer; your below average black person believes every black person locked in a jail cell is there because of corrupt, racist judicial system; your exceptionally below average black person believes Barack Obama is a God, descended from the black people who built the pyramids during some great Nubian epoch.
Your above average black person works to incite all of these types of blacks as their army to one day convene courts to erase all vestiges of 'white privilege' and enjoy the spoils of their conquest.
It's just too bad so few black people, who steadfastly believe Egyptians of antiquity were black and erected the pyramids, will ever consider how these ancient Nubian engineering prowess doesn't translate into blacks today being able to maintain the existing infrastructure of cities they inherit via white flight.
Oh well. As long as we all learn to survive the "true justice" of the perpetual revolution in America: the quest to lower quality of life and all standards governing merit until those pesky racial inequalities dissolve away.
St. Louis' political establishment, by negotiating with the Don't Shoot Coalition on any of their demands, has ceded the city and county to the black insurrectionists.
