GUTHRIE: “I know you were there in the crowd and this was just after the news came out. What do you have to say about that?”

MCSPADDEN: “That he was just emotional. I don’t feel that he stirred the crowd. The crowd was already stirred. It’s been stirring since August 9th. I hold — I wouldn’t hold him accountable for that. That comes from a higher power, elected official and it’s called the governor.”

GUTHRIE: “Can you explain what you mean by that?”

MCSPADDEN: “They stirred the pot. They had everyone on edge. They had everyone in an uproar and had the city on edge, basically, since August 9th.”

GUTHRIE: “You don’t feel that that made a bad situation even more volatile?”

BROWN SR.: “That was just raw emotion and nobody is condoning violence.”

Ferguson Protesters Attempt To Storm St. Louis City Hall, 3 Arrested…

Does storming city hall classify as “mostly peaceful?”

ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – Three people were arrested when protesters attempted to gain entry to City Hall in downtown St. Louis Wednesday.

Jeff Rainford, Chief of Staff for the St. Louis Mayor’s Office, told News 4 a small number of protesters attempted to charge into City Hall after the group marched through downtown, causing a small scuffle at the doorway.

Rainford said the mayor’s office usually will work with protesters so they can safely protest inside, and outside, the building but a small number of “unruly” protesters caused a disturbance on Wednesday.

Rainford said the police worked with the protesters so they could march safely downtown but pepper spray was used when things became “unruly” at City Hall.

Lib Cesspool Gawker Praises Ferguson Riots…

Don’t ever change, Gawker.

Via Gawker:

[T]he media reaction to the rioting has thus far been uniformly ridiculous. As much as we all love AutoZone and Doritos, hysterically sobbing at the sight of the former being burned and the latter being looted is a tad over the top. A clip of bullets was unloaded into an unarmed black boy and then his killer was ushered through some sort of cop-loving kangaroo court, after all. Some charred car refreshers are hardly something to get worked up about in moments like these.

But is this really so? There is, of course, the historical case to be made for rioting: the past is replete with examples where rioting gets the goods. But there is also, I’d submit, an even more straightforward case for rioting: at the right levels, rioting is economically efficient.

One need look no further than famous economist and Nobel laureate Gary Becker to see how this is true. According to Becker, punishing bad behavior increases the costs of engaging in such behavior and thereby reduces the amount of it. This is the underlying theory of most criminal justice schemes. Rioting that occurs in response to gross police misconduct and criminal system abuses imposes costs on doing those things. It signals to police authorities that they risk this sort of destructive mayhem if they continue on like this. All else equal, this should reduce the amount of police misconduct as criminal justice authorities take precautions to prevent the next Ferguson.

Another Side Effect of Climate Change and El Niño Events? Shorter Kids – MoJo

The weather pattern known as El Niño could be stunting kids’ growth—even years after the extreme storms abate, a new study finds. Researchers at Johns Hopkins’ Bloomberg School of Public Health, led by assistant professor of medicine and international health William Checkley, say they have conducted the first study on the long-term health consequences of El Niño weather systems. According to the paper published today in BioMed Central, children born around the time of the severe 1997-’98 El Niño living in coastal Peru, one of the regions hardest hit by the weather pattern, are significantly shorter for their age than children born before El Niño hit. […]

The team measured the height, weight, and fat, and muscle of a random sample of 2,095 children born between 1991 and 2001 in Tumbes, Peru—a city on the northwestern coast. A decade after the extreme ’97 El Niño, in November and December of 2008 and 2009, they found that, on average, the children born during and shortly after El Niño were shorter and had less lean mass, or body weight minus fat, than children born before the event.

Pentagon Changes Term For Captured Jihadists To “Unprivileged Enemy Belligerents”…

GITMO

Mind-numbing nuance.

Via FAS:

When it comes to Department of Defense doctrine on military treatment of detained persons, “unlawful enemy combatants” are a thing of the past. That term has been retired and replaced by “unprivileged enemy belligerents” in a new revision of Joint Publication 3-13 on Detainee Operations, dated November 13, 2014.

Among other changes, the revised Publication adopts Article 75 of the First Additional Protocol to the Geneva Conventions which provide minimum standards for humane treatment of detained persons. It also presents expanded discussion of biometric capabilities that are applicable to detainees.

The previous edition of Joint Publication 3-13, published in 2008, is available here for comparison.

Four Freelance Reporters Robbed At Gunpoint In Ferguson…

Update to this story.

Via Riverfront Times:

The site of Michael Brown’s killing has become particularly dangerous for media members in the last 24 hours. A crew of four freelance journalists was robbed at gunpoint this evening around 8 p.m. as they tried to film a segment at the Canfield Drive memorial.

Emily Molli, a freelancer filing for Chinese network Xinhua News Agency, said she was standing behind the camera while her colleague Marcus DiPaola was filming. She said she saw a large group of young men wearing masks and carrying guns walk towards them.

“They got closer and then I heard them say, ‘Turn the camera off, turn the camera off,” Molli told Daily RFT. “They came sort of at us and tried to grab the camera.”

The crew packed up and began walking to their car, but Molli and DiPaola said the men followed them, yelling. The reporters managed to make it inside their Prius before the group caught up and began smashing the windows.

“One guy pulled [the car door] back open, got a gun out of his backpack and pointed it at my head. He tells me to get out of the car and give me the keys,” said Molli. “That’s what I did.”

“Fifteen to twenty males followed us with guns and hammers out,” confirmed DiPaola. “Every single one of them had masks on.” […]

DiPaola and Molli said a large video camera, their car keys and their wallets were taken.

Obama: Americans Have No Right To Favor Americans…

Barack Obama

We don’t?

Via Daily Caller:

The only Americans who can legitimately object to immigration are native Indian-Americans, President Barack Obama told his Chicago audience Nov. 24, as he made an impassioned ideological plea for endless immigration, cultural diversity and a big government to manage the resulting multicultural society.

“There have been periods where the folks who were already here suddenly say, ‘Well, I don’t want those folks,’ even though the only people who have the right to say that are some Native Americans,” Obama said, rhetorically dismissing the right of 300 million actual Americans to decide who can live in their homeland.

Americans should not favor other Americans over foreigners, Obama demanded. “Sometimes we get attached to our particular tribe, our particular race, our particular religion, and then we start treating other folks differently… that, sometimes, has been a bottleneck to how we think about immigration,” he said in the face of many polls showing rising opposition to his immigration agenda.

Self-parody from race-baiter Bennie Thompson.

A Democratic congressman says opposition to President Obama’s extending temporary legal status to millions of undocumented immigrants is a result of the president’s race.

“The president, by executive order, which everybody agrees — who has a real brain — that presidents since George Washington have had executive authority privilege to do certain things,” said Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi on On Joe Madison’s radio program The Joe Madison Show last Friday.

“He’s not doing anything that the Bushes, the Reagans, the Clintons, and other presidents all the way back to Eisenhower, as it addressed immigration. So but again, this is just a reaction in Bennie Thompson’s words to a person of color being in the White House.”

TIME Defends Blacks Looting In Ferguson…

Alternate headline: Rich liberal elitist defends poor blacks looting and burning down their neighborhood.

Ferguson: In Defense of Rioting – TIME

When a police officer shoots a young, unarmed black man in the streets, then does not face indictment, anger in the community is inevitable. It’s what we do with that anger that counts. In such a case, is rioting so wrong?

Riots are a necessary part of the evolution of society. Unfortunately, we do not live in a universal utopia where people have the basic human rights they deserve simply for existing, and until we get there, the legitimate frustration, sorrow and pain of the marginalized voices will boil over, spilling out into our streets. As “normal” citizens watch the events of Ferguson unfurl on their television screens and Twitter feeds, there is a lot of head shaking, finger pointing, and privileged explanation going on. We wish to seclude the incident and the people involved. To separate it from our history as a nation, to dehumanize the change agents because of their bad and sometimes violent decisions—because if we can separate the underlying racial tensions that clearly exist in our country from the looting and rioting of select individuals, we can continue to ignore the problem. […]

Instead of tearing down other human beings who are acting upon decades of pent-up anger at a system decidedly against them, a system that has told them they are less than human for years, we ought to be reaching out to help them regain the humanity they lost, not when a few set fire to the buildings in Ferguson, but when they were born the wrong color in the post-racial America.

Islamic State Stones Two Men To Death For Being Gay…

In America the slightest criticism of gays is met with a flood of condemnation yet they say nothing went ISIS kill two men for being gay.

Via Al Arabiya:

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) group stoned two men to death in Syria Tuesday after claiming they were gay, a monitor said, in the militant organization’s first executions for alleged homosexuality.

“The ISIS today stoned to death a man that it said was gay,” the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said, adding that the victim was around 20 years old.

He was killed in Mayadeen in the eastern province of Deir Ezzor, near the border with Iraq.

The Britain-based Observatory said ISIS claimed it found videos on his mobile phone showing him “practicing indecent acts with males.”

In a separate incident on Tuesday, an 18-year-old was also stoned to death in Deir Ezzor city after the group said he was gay, the Observatory said.
