Oath Keepers Are Patrolling Ferguson, Say They’re Prepared To Use Lethal Force
First it was the Ku Klux Klan trying to fan the flames in Ferguson, Missouri and now members of the Oath Keepers are patrolling the streets of the embattled town on the heels of the Grand Jury opting to not indict the police officer who gunned down an unarmed black teenager.
[su_center_ad]For right wingers who insist that it’s the protesters who are violent, there are forces at play who are trying to provoke the town consisting of a largely black population.
So far, there are 10 members of the militia-type group in Ferguson and the group is seeking more volunteers and they say they are prepared to use “lethal force.”
On the group’s website, it states, “Calling all skilled veterans and patriots!”
Sky News reports:
The group’s leader, who gave his name only as Sam, wore military fatigues while carrying a pistol and a custom-made, semi-automatic rifle fitted with a silencer.
He said his group was ready to use lethal force to protect premises from arsonists.
Sam said: “The people of Ferguson have learned a sad and difficult lesson, that there aren’t enough police and National Guard to help police all the homes and businesses.
“When you see a militarised police force and angry citizens who choose to be violent it becomes a very volatile and dangerous situation.”
The Raw Story reports:
An Oath Keeper and St. Louis County police officer assigned to Ferguson was suspended in late August, less than two weeks after Brown’s slaying, after video surfaced of him describing himself as a Christian and killer.
“If you don’t want to get killed, don’t show up in front of me — it’s that simple,” said Officer Dan Page in the 2012 video recorded at an Oath Keepers event. “I’m into diversity — I kill everybody. I don’t care.”
Promising to use lethal force did not work too well for the KKK. Hello Anonymous, can you hear me?[su_csky_ad]
