Protests postpone St. Louis Thanksgiving parade

November 26, 2014 AP No Comments

The annual Thanksgiving Day parade in St. Louis has been postponed because of the continued protests over Michael Brown’s death and other fatal police shootings.  Parade organizers cite community unrest that erupted after the Monday night announcement of a St. Louis County grand jury’s decision to not indict Ferguson officer Darren Wilson in Brown’s death.  They hope to reschedule the event before Christmas.  Ferguson has been the site of the most intense protests, with another 45 people arrested Tuesday night. In St. Louis, hundreds of demonstrators disrupted downtown traffic Tuesday for several hours by blocking major intersections, an interstate highway and a Mississippi River bridge connecting the city to Illinois. St. Louis police made 13 protest-related arrests Tuesday.

Three Rivers Holds Mass Casualty Training 

November 26, 2014 Local No Comments

Three Rivers College students are a little more prepared for jobs they will go onto after graduation following the third annual fall mass casualty training event Tuesday.  Coordinator, Michael Willis tells KZIM KSIM nursing students, EMT and Paramedic students, fire science students, and members of the Missouri Sheriff’s Association Training Academy responded to a scenario.

That’s when students had to evacuate 58 injured people from the collapsed building.  He says students managed to complete the training in 90 minutes, which was the goal.   The training is held twice a year to make sure students are ready in a real situation.  Willis says it would not be possible without an amazing partnership with local emergency personnel.  The training had extensive participation from local first responders—like Poplar Bluff Police Department, the Butler County Fire Protection District, the Poplar Bluff Regional Medical Center, and Air Evac Lifeteam.

November 26, 2014 Genius Award No Comments

TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .

Christopher Banegas, a New Mexico man whose Facebook photos of stolen guns helped police solve a burglary and landed him in jail.
Police say they lacked any leads until the victim recently saw pictures of his stolen guns on Banegas’ Facebook page.
Banegas is now facing charges of aggravated burglary, larceny of a firearm, and tampering with evidence.

AND THEN THERE’S …..

Kean University, which recently purchased a $219,000 conference table, and has a legislator calling for a frivolous spending investigation.
The table was bought from a company in China, without any competitive bidding.
Coincidentally, the school recently established a branch campus in China and wants to strengthen ties with the Chinese government.
The price tag is 10 times as much as what has been spent by other schools for similar tables.
It costs more than $44,000 in tuition to attend Kean University for four years, and many of the school’s students struggle to pay the bill.

OR HOW ABOUT …..

Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Commissioner Mignon Clyburn, who is rethinking doing a Reddit session after being blasted by followers.
Clyburn did the “Ask Me Anything” session so she could answer questions about her job.
She soon found herself on the defensive against Reddit users angry about how the FCC has handled net neutrality rule making.
Many Redditors didn’t agree with Clyburn’s answers and their substance and began trashing her.
Clyburn’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Ferguson officer: ‘I know I did my job right’

November 26, 2014 AP No Comments

Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson says he couldn’t have done anything differently in his confrontation with Michael Brown to have prevented the 18-year-old’s shooting death.

 

Wilson made his first public statements Tuesday during an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos. He offered details of the Aug. 9 shooting like those contained in his grand jury testimony, released a day earlier after it was decided he wouldn’t be indicted in the death.

 

Wilson says he felt like it was his duty to chase Brown after a confrontation at his police vehicle. When asked about witness accounts that Brown at one point turned toward Wilson and put his hands up, he responded “that would be incorrect.”

 

He told Stephanopoulos he has a clean conscience because “I know I did my job right.”

Protesters block highways, bridge in St. Louis

November 26, 2014 AP No Comments

Hundreds of protesters angry about the Ferguson grand jury decision have disrupted traffic for several hours in downtown St. Louis by blocking major intersections, an interstate highway and a Mississippi River bridge connecting the city to Illinois.

 

Riot police arrested several demonstrators Tuesday afternoon who sat down in the middle of Interstate 44 near the Edward Jones Dome. They used pepper spray to disperse the crowd.

 

Protesters briefly blocked traffic on the Martin Luther King Bridge, remaining silent for four-and-a-half minutes to symbolize the length of time Michael Brown’s body remained in the street after he was killed by Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson.

 

Demonstrators also swarmed the steps of the federal courthouse in downtown St. Louis, overturning barricades while chanting, “You didn’t indict. We shall fight.”
