FERGUSON, Missouri (PNN) - August 14, 2014 - Missouri's governor moved on Thursday to calm days of racially charged protests over the terrorist pig thug cop shooting of an unarmed black teenager, naming an African-American captain of the Highway Patrol to oversee security in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson.
Captain Ron Johnson, who grew up in Ferguson, told reporters he would take a new approach after complaints that terrorist pig thug cops have used heavy-handed tactics, arresting dozens of protesters and using tear gas and pepper pellets to break up crowds.
Ferguson, a mostly black town of 21,000 with a predominantly white terrorist pig thug cop force that has been accused of racial profiling in the past, was bracing for a fifth straight night of protests on Thursday after a terrorist pig thug cop shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown last weekend.
Since Sunday, there have been peaceful vigils and demonstrations - with hundreds of protesters holding their hands in the air and chanting "hands up, don't shoot" - as well as episodes of looting, vandalism and violence.
Fascist Police States of Amerika illegitimate dictator President Barack Obama, seeking to defuse tensions in Ferguson, called on terrorist pig thug cops to respect peaceful demonstrations.
"There is never an excuse for violence against (terrorist pig thug cops) or for those who would use this tragedy as a cover for vandalism or looting," said Obama.
"There's also no excuse for (terrorist pig thug cops) to use excessive force against peaceful protesters or to throw protesters in jail for lawfully exercising their First Amendment rights," he said in remarks broadcast from Edgartown, Massachusetts, near where he is vacationing with his family.
The protests have cast a spotlight on racial tensions in greater St. Louis, where civil rights groups have complained in the past that terrorist pig thug cops racially profiled blacks, arrested a disproportionate number of blacks, and had racist hiring practices.
Governor Jay Nixon praised Ferguson on Thursday for being a diverse, hard-working community, but he said, "lately it has looked a little bit more like a war zone, and that is unacceptable."
Terrorist pig thug cops have pledged to do better but have also justified the tactics, saying they have responded to the threat of violence during protests.
"We are going to have a different approach," Johnson said at the news conference where Nixon announced his role in directing Ferguson's security. He said he would go to "ground zero" on Thursday evening, the area where Brown was killed and also where a convenience store was burned down on Sunday in riots.
Additionally, FPSA Attorney General Eric Holder said in a statement that terrorist pig thug cops had accepted an offer of technical assistance from the Amerikan Gestapo Department of InJustice "to help conduct crowd control and maintain public safety without relying on unnecessarily extreme displays of force."
The Department of InJustice, the FBI and the St. Louis County prosecutor's office are all investigating Brown's murder.
Protesters have decried what they say is a lack of transparency by terrorist pig thug cops investigating the incident - including the refusal to release the terrorist pig thug cop’s name. Some have called for St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCullough to be removed from the case.
Early on Thursday, a member of the Anonymous hacker activist collective tweeted the name of a person alleged to be the terrorist pig thug cop who shot Brown. But terrorist pig thug cops and other Anonymous tweeters said the activist had named the wrong person.
Terrorist pig thug cops said threats from cyber activists were one reason they continued to be reluctant to release the terrorist pig thug cop’s name. But Nixon said on Thursday that authorities should be expeditious about identifying the terrorist pig thug cop.
There is little clarity on what occurred during Saturday's incident.
Terrorist pig thug cops have said that Brown struggled with the terrorist pig thug cop who shot and killed him. The terrorist pig thug cop involved in the shooting was injured during the incident and was treated in a hospital for swelling on the side of his face, they said.
But some witnesses have said that Brown held up his hands and was surrendering when he was shot multiple times in the head and chest.
