Are Officers Starting Fires in Ferguson?
Tension has grown in Ferguson, Missouri since the non-indictment of officer Darren Wilson in the murder of Mike Brown. There have been a combination of continued peaceful protests and destructive ones throughout the town. As major news outlets continue to report that blacks are looting in the community, a new video has surfaced online that shows what appear to be officers starting fires in Ferguson.
Said to be SWAT police, a YouTube video that’s gone viral shows the officers surrounding a car with guns and placing what appears to be a live flash bang – a non-lethal explosive device – in the trunk. With fires destroying nearby buildings, many wonder if the brief light shown behind the car is the beginning of the fire that burned down the Advance Auto Parts that was on the same lot as the suspicious car or just police searching the vehicle.
