National Guard Sent To Ferguson After Night Of “Molotov Cocktails, Shootings, Looting And Vandalism “ (ZeroHedge, Aug 18, 2014):

After three consecutive days of rioting and looting in Ferguson, MO, despite a second night of curfews which was honored by few if any, Missouri’s governor said on Monday he would send the National Guard into the violent suburb to “restore calm” after authorities forcibly dispersed yet another crowd overnight.  Gov. Jay Nixon signed an executive order deploying the U.S. state militia, saying demonstrators had thrown Molotov cocktails and shot at police as well as a civilian, a description of the night’s events diverging widely from some eyewitness accounts. State Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson told a late night news briefing: “Molotov cocktails were thrown, there were shootings, looting, vandalism and other acts of violence that clearly appear not to have been spontaneous.

    Do you recall the so called People’s Park “riots” in the late 1960s in Berkeley, CA? TV was showing all sorts of rioting, bombing, etc…..total mayhem on University Avenue and around……
    A friend of mine was one of the special military people called in. He said nothing happened, it was a non event. For days, the TV and radio played nothing else, just as they are doing with Ferguson. Propaganda is nothing new.
