BREAKING: ‘Peaceful’ Ferguson protesters have stormed police headquarters

It is doubtful this will be enough to take the president away from his golf game and to a news podium, where he can express his horror and outrage. Be that as it may, protesters at “Protest Central” (aka Ferguson, Mo.) have acted on their antipathy toward men in blue by storming police headquarters in St. Louis.

Thirty-one minutes ago, Twitter user Breaking911 tweeted:

A more recent tweet carries a photo of a list of demands that anti-police types have taped to the building’s windows:

One of the more striking demands calls for the “creation of a diverse citizen review board with subpoena power,” to be “appointed by the community, not politicians,” and “will be a reflection of victims most subject to police violence.”

Hard to see where that could go wrong.
