Multiple police agencies descend on reported Ferguson, Missouri shooting



Original report:
News 4 St. Louis is reporting "at least 100 cop cars and numerous officers armed with M-16's in the area" after an incident on Saturday.

Police have confirmed that one person is dead after a officer-involved shooting at the Canfield Green apartment complex, according to Fox 2 Now.

St. Louis County Police spokesman Brian Schellman revealed that police were confronted at the scene by "a couple hundred" people.

Though very few details have been confirmed at this point, Twitter is exploding with reports of a 17-year-old boy being shot dead by police -- with this picture making the rounds of an unidentified male holding a sign that reads: "Ferguson police just executed my unarmed son!!!"

Chances are the dear departed either pulled a weapon or something that appeared to be a weapon on the officers and rec'd a toxic level of lead poisoning.

Why was this even reported? No information other than there had been a police shooting.

Great. Let's all speculate and get our opinions on what happened and who did what cast in concrete BEFORE we get any semi-accurate information (this is a news organization which wants people to read their articles...semi-accurate is the best we can hope for).

Here we go again. One black kid killed by cop ( no doubt doing criminal activities) and the race circus begins. Probably at least one black kid killed by another black every night in St Louis but you only hear national news when one black kid is shot by cops.
The absurdity of this irresponsible reporting is taken from Liberal Manisesto.
Aol, you should be ashamed. You're starting to mimic Huff_Post which is a commie Pinko propaganda machine.

Pay more taxes: Get more Police Protection.

Pay less taxes: You might need Protection from the Police.

Amend means to change. Do you mean to change what is true?

If your son was killed, would you have time to make a sign. I would be prostrate with grief.

I am content to let the police investigate first before rendering my own judgement.

We have seen all too often in the past where the media decides what the truth is before they have any facts and proceed to continue with their initial story even when the evidence shows that they had facts completely wrong.

1. You don't know what happened.
2. If you comment on this story as if you have any facts or if you speculate on the facts, here's your sign. STUPID
3. Unless you have had a child killed by any manner, you have no authority to comment on any behavior by a parent who has. I pray you never find out what that behavior might be.

In what manner?

You don't know the facts either. You just have the accusations being made by those who have reason to hide the truth.
