St. Louis County authorities declared a state of emergency Monday and more than 100 people were arrested on the second day of protests marking a year since a police officer killed Ferguson, Missouri, teen Michael Brown.

The move was announced by County Executive Steve Stenger, who cited the violence that marred protests Sunday night in Ferguson.

“The recent acts of violence will not be tolerated in a community that has worked so tirelessly over the last year to rebuild and become stronger,” Stenger said in a statement.

    another large mistake…they let the punk “demonstrators” demonstrate more than two hours…they need to knock them down, process them, load them up and send them back to their own home…with the exception of the 12 people that actually live in Ferguson, they can tend the tubs “the clown” brown’s memorial and then go home, or to jail…their choice…the rioting needs to be confined to Havana when the Coobans get all excited and demand reparations from America for all the years of pain and misery…kenyan boyo will have to go on another golfing vacation in order to evaluate the situation before returning to the oral office and going on TB to tell Real Americans that he is signing another alien proclamation authorizing the theft of more billions from Real American taxpayers to send to those poor people in cooba, you know them, the ones that we stole everything from…oh and authorize some factory approved replacement parts for their 57 Chebies…

    Where are all the jobs Obama promised them, in fact there are fewer jobs available. But blacks should stop blaming others and take more responsibility. There are a lot of very wealthy blacks, why are they not creating jobs. Obama want everyone to be dependent on Government handouts, that’s how he plans to destroy America.
