The Ferguson Police Department is an "outside armed force," Rep. William Lacy Clay. D-St. Louis says.
The congressman made that observation in a speech on the House of Representatives floor earlier this week about the Aug. 9 shooting death of Michael Brown, 18, by Ferguson officer Darren Wilson. Local authorities are investigating the shooting, and the Justice Department is conducting separate investigations into the shooting, and into the patterns and practices of the Ferguson Police Department.
"The pain that has enveloped that community since the tragic police shooting of Michael Brown on Aug. 9 has stirred the conscience of our nation, and has forced us to confront some very difficult truths," Clay said.
"The hard reality that I observed with my own eyes is a deep sense of outrage and anger that is present, not just in Ferguson, but in many communities across this country," Clay said. "And that pain is most deeply felt by millions of Americans of color, both young and old who know from decades of sad experience, that far too often, local law enforcement agencies and the justice system do not view them, or treat them, as equal citizens, who deserve due process and equal protection under the law."
Clay went on to say he has "little confidence in" the local investigation into the shooting."There are many hard lessons to be learned from Ferguson, and I fear that there may be more to come," Clay said, adding that "we have too many unarmed black men who interact with police and wind up dead."
An e-mail conversation, shared with FOX 2, reveals inflammatory comments between respected African American leaders. One leader responded by e-mail, saying `right on` to apparent words of violence.
The conversation is contained in a 38 page email sent to all St. Louis Media. It’s titled ‘Civil Disobedience Shutdown of Interstate 70,’ then this comment ‘Anything short of arresting that White cop for murder is an insult to Black people and Ferguson city Hall and Police department needs to burn to the ground!!!’
Tony Thompson, founder of Kwame Construction and member of the Regional Crime Commission wrote those words. Activist Eric Vickers responded, ‘Right On!’
What’s truly hilarious in this scenario is blacks have already threatened further violence in Ferguson (a town that is 68 percent black today, though it was less than .1 percent black in 1970) if the consequences of their actions aren’t… un-consequenced.

CBS interviewed three young men in Ferguson, Missouri this week.
One protester Gunny warned officials:
That’s not why you can’t you jobs; vocationally speaking, black labor is only valuable in corporate America as a buffer against EEOC lawsuits or via public jobs in local, state, and federal government.
“To be honest, if they don’t come and restore these neighborhoods for these people, like when you gotta go travel miles to Walmart and to get gas and stuff like that, it should be right here. If they don’t restore this community for people who stay here it’s gonna be hell to pay…A second protester chimed in:
Yeah, that’s why people looting, because they can’t get no jobs.
Don’t worry though: the soon-to-be food desert called Ferguson will be the beneficiary of millions of federal dollars in aid to help the city recover from the August 2014 black insurrection.
Or, if we are to believe the hundreds of blacks who packed the first city council meeting since Michael Brown attacked Officer Darren Wilson – earning his justice in the process – the insurrection might not be over. [Hundreds attend Ferguson’s first city council meeting since Michael Brown shooting, Fox2Now.com, 9-9-14]:
“How are you getting Ferguson residents involved with trying to be unified?” asked one speaker.
One speaker promised more demonstrations if he didn’t see officer Darren Wilson face charges for the shooting death of Michael Brown.
“You all might as well bring back the army because there’s going to be chaos in the street again,” said the young man.Chaos in the streets again?
The truth doesn’t matter to those who support the idea Michael Brown was executed without provocation.
All that matters is a black man was killed by a white police officer, reinforcing their belief an uninterrupted line of white supremacy connects the 2014 Ferguson Police Department to Jim Crow, lynching, the Confederacy, and the German Nazi Party.
Never mind the horrendous casualty list racked up by black on black homicide/crime in metropolitan St. Louis, the real crime is the impermanent natures of the economic conditions whites create in suburbs (such as Ferguson) that immediately depart with them once white flight from black crime begins.
Without a tax-base to pay for basic civilizational needs (police, fire department, road maintenance, parks, and basic civic improvements required in a budget each fiscal year), you’ll see massive property depreciating and an eroding business footprint: exactly what is happening in Ferguson since blacks became a clear demographic majority.
If police are an “occupying army” and an “outside armed force” depriving black people of basic liberties, then it’s time for police to stop patrolling majority black areas.
