'The media abandoned us': the post-TV protest in Ferguson

Source: http://www.channel4.com
We have had social media revolutions. Now it's the turn of the so-called "post-TV" protest, with clashes in Ferguson being live-streamed by demonstrators - and racking up millions of views.

In the 11 days since unarmed black teenager Michael Brown was shot dead by police, protests have been staged in Ferguson, Missouri every night.

Many have been characterised by aggressive arrests and according to police, pockets of violence from protesters. Overnight on Tuesday 19 August, another black man was shot dead after wielding a knife and reportedly threatening police officers. Since Sunday, 78 people have been arrested, according to local media, the vast majority for refusing to disperse.

With racial tension between the predominantly black community and majority white police force running high, it is no surprise that protesters are armed with smartphones, tweeting pictures and trying to hold authorities to account.

Antonio French, a local politician who has been one of the main documenters of the protest movement on social media, said: "Social media is directly responsible for why you see so many people out here, why you see people talking about Michael Brown in different cities across America and across the world. It gets it out instantly."

This graph from Topsy (above), the Twitter analytics company, shows how the number of tweets worldwide mentioning "Ferguson" rose to over 500,000 at its peak on 14 August: in the last month, there have been 3,243,434 tweets mentioning "Ferguson".

But advances in livestreaming have also allowed people across the world to witness what is happening, thanks to people like Mustafa Hussein, a student and volunteer at KARG Argus Radio, whose livestream from the streets of Ferguson in the early hours of 14 August has racked up over 1.3m views since it was first broadcast (see below).

He has filmed some of the most contentious clashes between police and protesters and streamed them on the live channel "I am Mike Brown Live from Ferguson, MO", and his footage was used by mainstream TV stations in the US.

"There is a longstanding history in this county of the officers themselves being uneducated on what the constitutional rights of civilians are," he told The Huffington Post.

Search "Ferguson" on the livestreaming site and phone app ustream.tv and dozens of videos appear for every day of protest, including speeches by community leaders, street-level footage of demonstrations and confrontations with police. This has all led the protests to be deemed one of the first "post-television" news stories by various websites.

The mainstream media abandoned us years ago when most were brought by the major propaganda organisations. The MSM can't be trusted as a reliable news sources so surely we are better off accessing news from independent source. I wonder is the mainstream media companies broadcasting material uploaded by members of the public requested permission? They always want to prevent people from reusing their content and use copyright protection methods to prevent legitimate reuse. If they paid the original author producer then maybe it's not so bad but really we should be preventing MSM from using sources outside their controlled wire systems. Do the MSM have a place on the public network when they have already established their own closed and controlled distribution networks? Why do they think they have a right to access our public network with their BS?

No the peoples voice was a racket and a lame attempt at centralisation. The last thing you ever what is centralisation...that's what creates these uncontrollable rough organisations. There is power in diversity which provides natural protection mechanisms, so that no one part controls the whole and failure of one part doesn't lead to total collapse.

Our strength is our diversity and unique individual thoughts etc.

If the EU didn't exist the current crisis wouldn't exist, because if one country failed the others would remain unaffected or the effect would be minimal. The other countries would then be in a position to help the failed country recover. What we have now is a system that can't adapt freely and we all get dragged down because we have been consolidated and force into codependency rather than being independent self sustaining units.

That's why the mainstream media is screwed - it has been consolidated and totally corrupted. The negative response to one provider is applied to the whole. In a free system only part of the system would fail and the remainder would adapt and survive. In the case of the media they would need to start reporting real and honest news. They can't do that because they are all controlled by people that need to present propaganda to hold up a totally corrupt system of finance, law and government.

That's not what I meant. Since we now all possess the technology and ability to attend and document and upload/broadcast events such as a Bilderberg meeting or Ferguson... we have become the peoples voice.

TPV Ltd was unnecessary.

We are TPV.

Sorry I didn't get where you were coming from. :)

The term TPV seems dirty and tainted now - we need an alternative phrase. :ponda:

The New York Times reports Department of Homeland Security grant money paid for the $360,000 BearCat armored truck on patrol in Ferguson. Most of the body armor worn by officers responding to the Ferguson protests was also paid for with federal money. We speak to Radley Balko, author of the book, "Rise of the Warrior Cop: The Militarization of America’s Police Forces." "When we take domestic police officers and we train them like soldiers and we give them military gear and we dress them up like soldiers and we tell them they’re fighting a war — a war on crime or a war on terror — they’re going to start to see themselves as soldiers," Balko says.

And some of the stuff used to militarize the US police force was tested by the IDF in palestine according to an ex IDF who says US police and IDF have a close working relationship... the video/thread is on this forum somewhere... and i remember the ex IDF guy saying the common people in their home countries would be next to be on the receiving end of the technology in domestic situations.
I remember the good old days, when 90+ year olds in nursing homes lived forever. Darn this pesky virus.

www.standard.co.uk/news/world/police-shoot-knife-wielding-man-close-to-riothit-ferguson-9679614.html

US police officers are reported to have fatally shot a 23-year-old man who they said was ‘wielding a knife’.

The incident took place close to Ferguson, where 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by a police officer.

Police Chief Sam Dotson said officers responded to an alert at shop where a man was reported to have stolen energy drinks and a pastry.

He said the man was behaving erratically and said “shoot me now, kill me now”.

Officers were reported to open fire when the man began to approach them with a knife.

ADMIN INSERT: WATCH THIS, THE LOCALS KNOW THE RIOTERS ARE PAID

He uses hood talk, but HAS THE MESSAGE, RED ALERT! if anyone can rip this off of facebook, it needs to be preserved.

The attorney for the store clerk that was shoved in the surveillance video is Jay Kanzler! The fox2now video shows his name incorrectly, but in the video near the end he says JAY not Jake. Before CNN cuts the feed in the youtube video, we see his name as "Jay Kanzler."
He's a FILM-MAKER. He made a film called, "Close but no cigar!"

Close... but NO CIGAR!!!!

This is interesting because the store clerk says the cops showed up, didn't take statements, just asked if they had a surveillance system. When they said yes, they said they had a warrant & then grabbed the hard-drive & kicked everyone out the deli.

This store would be then become VANDALIZED that night???

Also, Dorian Johnson had a criminal record before the incident here.

theconservativetreehouse.com/2014/08/16/wanted-ferguson-shooting-cohort-and-robbery-accomplice-dorian-johnson-has-outstanding-arrest-warrant-for-previous-theft/

Yet he's not being arrested for the video taped robbery??

After 3 hours with the Police & FBI, Dorian copped a deal to lie on Mike Brown about the cigar theft. It's not until Wednesday that Dorian begins telling a story involving cigars. Close... but NO CIGAR!!!!

THE STORE VIDEO IS FAKED! A similar male model was used & video-shopped. There are way to many inconsistencies. There was a House of Cards episode about this.

Interestingly also is the fact that there was NO TIME STAMP in the upper left corner of the video, so God only knows when the video was created. Perhaps during the 6 days that the police had complete control of the store?



I know there have many instances of police being forced to do 10 stop & frisks a day, or otherwise their pay would get docked. This appears to be a routine stop & frisk that escalated quickly. Sadly there is no police dash-cam video or audio???

Thanks Jim. Keep up the good work.

My comment:

Too many coincidences, especially the cigar box story, the movie, the out of towners who got violent, and let me go on a rant here:WHO SET THE BUSES UP AND SHIPPED THE OUT OF TOWNERS IN? OBVIOUSLY SOMEONE WHO KNEW THIS WOULD HAPPEN. And who has money to pay for transport of so many rioters, all of which the police have said are from out of town? WHO ORGANIZED THIS?
Whoever organized this wanted to create a reason for a DHS crack down, martial law, and out of control government aggression. Someone wanted a precedent set, so something phony was staged that got a man killed and once that was a verified success that provided a "reason" the buses rolled into town and released the rioters. That is what is going on here, this is no doubt a psy op launched by very powerful and evil people, and NOT JUST A STORY ABOUT A STORE ROBBERY GONE AWRY. Another "Sandy Hook" Boston bombing Batman event, BET ON IT and that makes the above mail all the more plausible.

These protests are being organized, staged and planned by the radical leftist marxists in the WH and the Justice Dept. The bankers are of course behind the scenes allowing all of this. The goals are simple:

1. Racial division and class warfare
2. Acclimation of police state
3. Massive unrest, chaos and violence
4. TRIGGER Martial Law nationwide
5. Distract we the people away from Obama destroying the US
6. Distract away from the scandals
7. Rally the leftist base before the midterms
8. Start a race war FROM Jim Stone web site. Amazing the number of silly WII boy's ignoring these topic today. Really a 8x10 glossy of AH and they lose their train of thought.

This article is based on the same vid as what dots posted above...


Video of deadly St Louis police shooting raises questions (GRAPHIC)

The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department has released mobile phone footage that seems to be at odds with parts of its story surrounding the officer-involved shooting of Kajieme Powell in the weeks after Michael Brown’s death.

According to St. Louis Public Radio, the police released the video Wednesday evening as part of an effort to be more transparent when it comes to violent incidents involving law enforcement. In addition to the cell phone footage, the department also released security camera footage of the alleged robbery, as well as the two 911 calls made to police.

Police were first called to the scene – less than four miles away from the spot Brown, an unarmed 18-year-old, was killed – when a local store owner reported the 25-year-old Powell for stealing drinks and snacks. A separate woman, meanwhile, also reported Powell for allegedly having a knife in his pocket and acting strangely.

As RT noted previously, St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson said Powell was brandishing a knife and ignored commands to drop it. Dotson said Powell approached the officers carrying the knife “in an aggressive manner,” with an overhand grip, and was shot when he came within three or four feet of police. The video is embedded below, please note that it includes graphic scenes.



In the newly released video, Powell can be seen walking in the direction of and yelling at the two responding officers, telling them to shoot him. However, his hands look to be at his side while this is happening, and he also appears to be further than three or four feet from police when they decide to shoot him.

Powell had a well-known history of mental illness, though it’s unclear how, if at all, that played into police decision-making. He was shot about 15-20 seconds after police arrived, about nine times total.

Speaking to CNN, Dotson acknowledged that Powell’s hands were down when he was shot, but said the man was brandishing a knife and walking towards officers at a close enough range that the knife was considered a lethal weapon.

"The officers did what I think you or I would do, they protected their life in that situation," Dotson said, as quoted by the Huffington Post. He mentioned that tasers aren’t “100 percent” successful, concluding, "In a lethal situation, they used lethal force.”

Previously, Dotson also pointed to the safety of his officers as the most important concern.

“I think officer safety is the number one issue,” he said on Tuesday. “I think you have the right to protect yourself and defend yourself” if someone approaches you with a knife and gets too close.

Watch this space....

Rumor in St. Louis, these 'protests' are staged to cause riots... they're going to branch out across St. Louis over the next few days.

Full military lockdown by next week or sooner.

Agent provocateurs dressed like regular people, causing major violence to bring in full military lockdown

These paid rioting agents are going to hit Clayton and West County, Chesterfield, and Hazelwood (more affluent areas of St. Louis).

Then comes full midwest military lockdown in response. Talk of shooting down crowds going to be done.

St. Louis chosen symbolically as ground zero for martial law.

Again, this is the "rumor". So far, most of the rumors have been proved incorrect.

Although, rumor of the National Guard came just a day before the actual guard was called. Lets hope that was just a fluke.

It all depends on IF WE CITIZENS ALLOW THESE RIOTERS TO CONTINUE.

We need to stand guard at this point, the citizens of st. louis cannot let these late night fake 'protesters' (paid rioters) bring in the nwo.

Breaking: Michael Brown Allegedly Involved in Second Degree Murder Case
Charles C. Johnson, the Editor-in-Chief of Got News and the investigator who debunked the Everytown shootings map, is suing the St. Louis County Court to release Ferguson shooting victim Michael Brown’s juvenile arrest records.
As relayed by the website YoungCons.com, Johnson claims that he has “confirmed” Michael Brown was arrested in a case involving second-degree murder:

'The media abandoned us' ?


Do you think this happened lately?

Do you think they differentiate between the skin colour of the cattle ?


I was born after 1945,
so I can't testify the exact moment
but I am quite sure it was in May ...
when the last bastion of truth fell in earth.



"One small country in Earth still holds out against the XXXXXX invaders."


No more .... gone ...conquered ... destroyed, looted, raped and enslaved.



This was the moment when the infernal empire started to rise to starry heights.








From this moment on they were the unfettered rulers in earth.

Their ruthless "World Domination Tour" started in May 1945 - without any doubt.


.
"The truth must be repeated over and over again,
because error is repeatedly preached among us, not
only by individuals, but by the masses. In periodicals
and cyclopaedias, in schools and universities; every-
where, in fact, error prevails, and is quite easy in the
feeling that it has a decided majority on its side."

~ J. W. v. Goethe
