(Reuters) – Protesters in Ferguson, Missouri began targeting Black Friday sales at major retailers overnight in a new tactic to vent their anger at a grand jury decision not to indict a white police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black teen.

Kicking off their latest strategy inside a Walmart in another nearby suburb of St. Louis, about 75 demonstrators protested peacefully, chanting “Hands up, don’t shoot!”, bemusing bargain-hunters pushing their brimming shopping carts.

They dispersed peacefully when ordered by a small group of police, moving on to a Target store where they staged a similar demonstration. More protests were planned for Friday.

  1. Gordon, the tragedy is bad enough. But the propaganda of this orchestrated chaos is continuing to promote/fuel turmoil, anarchy, discord, discomfort, and disorder. It’s shameful of how the media and the public has reacted to this tragedy of this thief. Sadly this is what this individual was and the owner of the store reported it. The officer responded to the call and at one point felt threaten. Unfortunately it did not end well, the struggle between both ended a life. Would it had made the same impact if it was the officer who died? Probably not, the thief would have been caught and sentence to life in prison. But just the same a life was taken.
    Is this the hope and change we were promised from our elected officials? The unity of brotherly love. As tragic as this is, and my prayers go out to all involve; Is this an excuse to continue to flaunt God’s commandments..?.. In retrospect the commandments of God are there to avoid hateful, hurtful situations. If only we heed them. We need to get on our hands and knees and repent from evil. God is our judge. Let Him into your life and allow Him to change you from within. We must obey Him. True peace and love comes from Him. Jesus is the gate to heaven. Our hope. Evil is flourishing WE must counter-act it.
    Come quickly Lord. God bless.

  2. Gordon, nothing pertaining to this article, but having very definite senses regarding the world economies and rapid recession heading towards collapse, in particular due to falling oil prices. Also, and I’m sure that you are aware of the reservoir in Brazil that supplies water to Sao Paulo and about 10 m people is all but dried up, they are falling into desperation.
    Keep up the good work brother just wanted to communicate my thoughts to you on these two items. maranatha

  3. It’s a big setup! These people are out of their minds. No thought, no reasoning, just the blind leading the blind. Evil leading the lost into destruction.
    God Bless!

  4. You’re right SweetJava. The world is absolutely a mess! This sort of event is fueled by demonically led individuals. Increasing chaos, anarchy, confusion, hatred, and violence. Sad to say that this is only the beginning of such sorrows. It is about to get much, much worse my friend.
    God Bless!

  5. The world is a mess Ethin. However, with that being said, things are falling into place just as the bible predicted! I have not heard about Brazil, very interesting, sort of sounds like California and the West coast of the United States!
    Thanks bro, God bless my friend!

  6. Exactly right on Gordon, California is in a very dark place and hasn’t got a clue about it. The drought is worsening every minute yet the government and citizens keep their heads stuck in the sand. God help us all, maybe this will bring the church and people to turn to God and revival.

  7. Oh yea.. Gordon. The books of prophecies are open in front of us, for those who choose to see. We must prepare ourselves to hang-in there through it all. Sadly people are not even aware of how bad its yet, to get. This “New” world order is being orchestrated to transition the entire globe from the love of God and neighbor to secular and amass “whatever”, is in full steam ahead mode (as predicted). Call me crazy but it seem it’s gaining momentum. Time is speeding ahead my friend, so fast with what’s happening around the globe on a daily bases. We must be very careful and with the grace of God within us to not be pulled in to this world’s chaotic and downward spiral. The prince of this world is working hard to snarl in as many as he can. Christ took the penalty for our sins, belief in Him, a desire to repent and do right in/by one’s life is in our grasp, when we allow Him into our hearts. We must chose for ourselves who we serve. He keeps His word and will always be there for us. Amen! The gate He holds open is still and now available to anyone who desires to know Him and trust Him, to walk through. He alone is the way, the truth and life. This gate will not be open long. God wants the good in us to shine in times of great distress, showing the world who we stand with.. Having Jesus as our example. Let’s imitate Him. Our Redeemer comes. God bless. Maranatha!!

  8. Bible prophecy is being fulfilled before our eyes! The madness, the chaos, the confusion, the civil unrest, all part of Satan’s grand scheme. Just a forerunner of what’s coming.

    Stand tall, keep the faith and remember that God is with us! Amen
