#Ferguson: This Is What Theocracy Looks Like(?)

A strange story from the Associated Press

 

About 100 protesters, including many clergy members, are protesting in the streets of the St. Louis suburb where it was announced that a grand jury had decided not to indict a Ferguson police officer in the death of Michael Brown.

The demonstrators began blocking intersections in downtown Clayton, Missouri, shortly after sunrise Tuesday. They have been walking in circles, singing spirituals and chanting, “This is what theocracy looks like.” They also observed a 4½-minute moment of silence to mark the 4½ hours that Brown’s body remained on the Ferguson street before it was removed.

So,  why? There seems to be a conspicuous lack of context. Is it because the decision is what a Theocracy does, which would be strange coming from men of the cloth. Is it because they are men of the cloth telling it like it is? Not sure. Any ideas?

Lest you think it is Fox News cutting the AP article, Think Progress carries it to the word.

One thing I do know is that these clergy aren’t helping. They’re engaged in blocking intersections in Ferguson in defense of a man who robbed a store, assaulted the store owner, and assaulted a police officer, all leading to his death. Why would the clergy support that lawlessness?

    Perhaps they consider the supposed “lawfulness” of shooting an unarmed young man some 10 times, worse than the lawlessness of swiping a few cigars.

    The officer overreacted to the situation and killed a young man, but all perfectly legal in my home state!

    BS, J. He had already tried to take the officers gun and hit him in the face. Then he charged at the officer. The only one over-reacting was the mental midget doing such things and expecting to live. One less thug on the streets. Good

    Perhaps the young unarmed man shouldn’t have assaulted an officer of the law, attempted to take the officers weapons, run away, then charge the officer.

    Perhaps you should ask some officers what they think about a situation that happens in a heartbeat. Ever been in a situation where you had to make a huge snap decision, Jeff? I’m sure you have, since you say you are a bigshot businessman. Have any of those situations involved being in a potentially life threatening situation?

    I actually have. I was getting mugged in NYC and, thinking that the gun in the dudes pocket was a finger, shoved him down the subway entrance stairs. What if I was wrong? Should I have just let him mug me? Did I “overreact”?

    Jeff,

    I like you to ask this policeman talk about getting sucker punched and shot but unfortunately he is dead.
