In Effort to Stifle Dissent, St. Louis County Charges At Least 100 Protesters One Year Later

National Lawyers Guild (NLG)

FERGUSON, Mo. - In a surprise move, just before the statute of limitations was about to expire, St. Louis County Counselor Peter Krane filed charges last week against at least 100 people who were arrested a year ago peacefully protesting the murder of Michael Brown outside of the Ferguson Police Department.

The City Counselor wishes to gild the lily with new, last minute charges, so he should also be ready to resign should these charges not result in guilty judgements.

The authoritarian authorities need convictions quick, before the lawsuits for false arrest bankrupt their county.

:::FASCISM::: is exactly what it is. They arrest people, infiltrate and turn it into violence, assault peaceful protesters, and just do as much as they think they can get away with to stop people from exorcising their rights peacefully. The government is out to destroy our democracy.
