'Oath Keepers' spotted carrying guns, walking along Ferguson

First they defended businesses during the second wave of unrest, now they walk the streets with guns. Okay, it’s their right to secure the free state, civil order and property. But these guys can become real superstars if they would start some firefight being white civvies against black rioters. Risky they act, reminds me of the beginning of civil war. What do you think?

Its probably just a matter of time before some urban areas go under martial law.

I think the black guy getting shot by the cops took the wind out of a few sails. Even the uppity are pragmatic at times.

Why did Ferguson pick a street thug to put on a pedestal in the first place?

I was referring to the new black guy that got shot. He was armed and I think still survives in critical condition IIRC.

Uh, they didn't pick him. He's the one who got shot by the cops.

One thing no one talks about anymore is that the police inexplicably left his body lying in the streets for hours. I know you have to preserve the scene for a time, but considering what had happened and that the cops were already there, they should have gotten him out of the streets rather quickly. Even though it quickly got overshadowed by other parts of the story, I think that was a big catalyst in the Brown shooting becoming such a huge deal.

I'm not saying I agree with these guys, but I'm pretty sure they are there to protect the reporter from the cops (or are intending to use force if the police harass the reporter). They are anti-government, not anti-black. They are just inserting themselves into a situation where they are on the right-side of the law, but are likely to come into conflict with police.

Insensitive to the point of stupidity I'd say. They'd be better off joining the peaceful protests and lending a more heavily armed hand down the line. The police do need to be put in their place. They need to know that they have no real power, only transient granted authority that can be taken away. Probably not, however, in Ferguson, where people are trying like mad to keep a peaceful protest.

I think the idea that they were there patrolling the streets to stop cops is f**k laughable. They were there to intimidate blacks Medius.
