What could go wrong? – Heavily-armed white men patrol #Ferguson, ‘ready to confront authorities to defend US Constitution’ — RT USA

Armed to teeth with semi-automatic assault rifles and handguns, members of the Oath Keepers militia, formed of former and current law enforcement and military officers, have blended into the crowd of Ferguson protesters, saying “We’re on your side.”At least four members of the ‘Oath Keepers’ arrived in Ferguson on early Tuesday and began patrolling the West Florissant Avenue, walking through the crowds of protesters gathered there for a ‘day of civil disobedience’ following the anniversary of the killing of 18-year-old African-American Michael Brown, shot dead by white Police Officer Darren Wilson. Heavily-armed white men patrol Ferguson, ‘ready to confront authorities to defend US Constitution’ — RT USA.

    • I’m certain they don’t want to shoot anyone. But I can absolutely understand why the residents of the neighborhood and the cops would consider their presence and show of weaponry unnecessarily provocative. Does Ferguson really need a street-level arms race?

      • The last time this happened, they were there protecting businesses. I agree that it may be provocative , but no more so than the cops or the Guards showing force. Most of them are local to the area and were really PO’d when the Governor dropped the ball.
