Here’s the shotguns used tonight. Lots of restraint shown:

Summary of the night (August 18th, 2014):

There were many arrests throughout the night. Water bottles and other objects were thrown at police, and after gunshots rang out near the QuikTrip, police began firing smoke and gas indiscriminately. There have been reports of white anarchist agitators from out of town, provoking police.

Many protesters ran, terrified, coughing. Journalists were caught in the gas: one canister rolled right under a photographer, who collapsed from it. Fires and bricks were used by residents to try and keep back police.

Police began clearing out the street, ordering anyone who wasn’t credentialed media to leave or be faced with arrest. When one reporter (who is livestreaming the events and has a camera on him) explained he lost his credentials while being fired at and showed his PRESS patch instead, officer told him “this doesn’t mean shit” while ripping the journalist’s PRESS patch off of his vest and throwing it to the ground.

Police formed two lines and began moving forward. A handful of protesters got caught between the lines, trapped but repeatedly told to get out. Among them, WaPo reporter Wesley Lowery reports that the entire neighbourhood has barriers and many people are unable to get home.

SWAT teams have begun doing tactical sweeps and media were ordered away.

Amnesty International was also on the ground tonight and were kicked out by police. Currently, AI is highly critical of the US.

There are still a few people trapped, it appears, including a few reporters, who are tweeting that they’re being mercilessly gassed:

And here’s an image of what it looks like when they fire gas:

Currently waiting for a presser from Captain Johnson, who was seen tonight attempting to keep peace with no helmet/mask/gear.

White out of towners seem to be coming to Ferguson in troves hoping to get their revolution fix while ruining shit for the rest.

In related news, a week or two ago when I was mixing their curry, the girl informed me that I was killing god.

They have a strict, four day eating schedule that goes: chicken, beef, dal, turkey, then it repeats.

So I just kind of looked at her because, yeah, I’m mixing the beef curry into your rice kid—but yOU’RE THE ONE EATING IT.

She was not unaware of this. Or distressed by it. Just stating a fact. I was killing god and then she was going to eat god because she can’t have milk but she needs protein.

I’m absolutely positive there’s more to the it than that, but good luck figuring that out through an eight-year-old.

Real glad I decided to take a shower before going to work tonight.

Turns out it’s Krishna Janmashtami. Or it was this weekend/yesterday anyway.

Apparently part of this is that no one was allowed in the kitchen unless they’d bathed today.

I mix the kids’ food and prep their vitamins, so needless to say this would’ve posed a problem had I not decided my hair was just a little too greasy to get away with earlier in the evening.

Stuff like this always stirs my soul.
