• Michael Brown Activists Arrested At Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, Walmart, And Target

    Thugsgiving continues....

    After violent protesters burned down a dozen businesses and several car dealership lots following the grand jury decision in Ferguson, Michael Brown activists began protesting Walmart, Target, and other retail stores across America.

    The protesters are tweeting under the Twitter hashtag #BoycottBlackFriday in a lousy attempt to draw attention to the grand jury decision not to indict officer Darren Wilson in the August 9th shooting of Michael Brown.

    That grand jury decision spawned the hashtag #BlackoutBlackFriday on Twitter and caused the creation of a Facebook page. There are only 3,554 “likes” on the Boycott Black Friday Facebook page that claims its aim is to “galvanize economically and influence change in the politics of American Justice pertaining to Law Enforcement vs Citizens.”

    The Michael Brown protests began late Thanksgiving night and have continued early Friday.

    Nearly 75 protesters organized at a St. Louis Target store Thursday night, holding their hands up and chanting “Shut it down.” Local police and National Guard troops were called in and posted outside of an area Walmart.

    There are also reports that the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade was briefly thwarted by about 50 Ferguson protesters dissatisfied with the Darren Wilson grand jury decision. New York police officers arrested seven protesters after they disrupted the official parade route screaming and carrying signs.

    “The protesters, affiliated with #stoptheparade, were decrying the killings of Akai Gurley, Eric Garner and others. The campaign comes days after the grand jury decision not to charge Ferguson cop Darren Wilson in the August shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown,” TIME noted.

    We now have grand jury testimony from an eyewitness that said she saw Michael Brown “charging toward” officer Wilson like a “football” player.

    Any protest (at this point) in Michael Brown’s name, as if he is some sort of civil rights martyr, is absolutely embarrassing and pointless.
