CNN Puts Out APB for #Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson

Last week, CNN was in the lead of the media pack in drawing a virtual map to the home of Officer Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, Missouri policeman who shot unarmed robber Michael Brown in a case that has roiled the small town with riots and drawn the involvement of President Barack Obama.
CNN broadcast video of Officer Wilson’s house, street number and neighborhood while other media outlets named the town and other descriptors where he lives. One local TV station apologized for showing Officer Wilson’s house.
After a week without being able to flush out the media-led lynch mobs’ prey, an apparently frustrated CNN put out the call to its viewers Friday afternoon: “Ferguson shooting: Where’s Officer Darren Wilson?”
Thursday the Washington Post, which published the name of the street Officer Wilson lives on, lamented that, “Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson is nowhere to be found”
CNN acknowledges Officer Wilson is in hiding from death threats–which has become the norm in Obama’s America. If the liberal lynch mob believes you are guilty even before an investigation is completed to decide whether you should be charged with a crime they will hound you with death threats with the tacit approval of the Obama administration.
When Attorney General Eric Holder toured Ferguson this week he made no mention of protecting Wilson from the lynch mob nor did he reprove the New Black Panther Party for leading a rally that called for the death of Officer Wilson.
Likewise with the investigation in to the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, Holder allowed death threats against George Zimmerman and his family made by the New Black Panther Party and others to go unprosecuted.
That’s right, ladies and gentlemen – the understudy to The Stupidest Man On The Internet has just referred to the reporters covering the shooting of an unarmed black kid as a “lynch mob”.
How dare they ask such questions in a public forum? People who do that should be…Oops.
Ferguson shooting: Where’s Officer Darren Wilson?
Can someone find the CNN reporters in St. Louis and draw maps to THEIR homes?
white liberals go overboard on PCcops shoot unarmed kids to death and leave them in the street for four hours while they try to get their story straight, then put the cop on paid leave and hush up the incident report, this kind of crap happens.
TEXAS BORDER CRISIS TO BE COMPLICATED BY MILITIA [FR linked] Breitbart ^ | June 20, 2014 | By Bob Price Posted on 6/20/2014 1:26:10 PM by Jim Robinson
HOUSTON, Texas—Militia groups in Texas and across the nation are responding to the Texas Border Surge announced Wednesday night by the offices of the Governor, Lt. Governor and Texas House Speaker. An announcement was made on several new media outlets including Facebook.
The alert to the civilian militia groups, which includes many groups who showed up at the Clive Bundy ranch in Nevada, calls on all able bodied militia members to converge on the Laredo sector of the Texas/Mexico border. A man who identified himself on a national conference call as “Ruthless” said their objective it to “put up a man-fence” to prevent the illegal aliens from crossing the border in their area of control.
Following is the text of the actual alert which was published on FreeRepublic.com and several other locations:
“***ACTION ALERT*** All Texas & National Militia Available Please Converge Immediately Status GO: Mission close down Laredo Crossing for starters ((All need to be closed)) Operation complete when border fence is in place and secure Name: Love’s #298 Love’s Travel Stop 28527 Interstate 35, Encinal…
Jesus fuck, Jim Rob – are you still hanging around on the side of the road down there? Enjoying the 115 degree heat?
An “action alert”? What happened, Jimbo? Need a fourth for bridge?
So – what’s the endgame, Freepers? Even if you’re going to the border (you aren’t), what in your fever dream delusions do you think you would do there?

Goldman Sachs Trader sues over skimpy $8.25 million bonus CBS News ^ | June 20, 2014 Posted on 6/21/2014 6:51:04 PM by Wolfie
Goldman Sachs Trader sues over skimpy $8.25 million bonus
A former Goldman Sachs (GS) trader, still furious at getting only an $8.25 million bonus in 2010, has taken the giant investment bank to court to get paid millions more.
Deeb Salem says he helped Goldman earn more than $7 billion and that a little more money in his pocket would only be fair considering all his contributions. He wants about $5 million in additional pay from Goldman.
In his petition filed last week in New York’s State Supreme Court, Salem said things at Goldman started to unravel when he got a written warning about his 2007 job self-evaluation, Bloomberg reports. In that self-evaluation, Salem reportedly discussed a short squeeze involving derivatives linked to subprime home loans in 2007.
His own words were later used by U.S. Senators investigating whether Goldman bet against the mortgage market in 2006 and 2007 in such a way that helped it reap massive rewards as the housing sector tanked.
You just don’t talk about such things in your job evaluations at Goldman, and Salem said his pay was docked as punishment for those comments.
Salem watched his annual bonus go from $15 million in 2009 to $8.25 million the next year and $3 million in 2011. He left the firm in 2012 but soon filed a complaint about his 2010 pay with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Wall Street’s self-funded regulator. He tried to get more than $16 million from Goldman in arbitration, including nearly $7 million in deferred stock he felt he was owed. But the authority sided with Goldman Sachs.
Now, Salem wants New York’s state court to overturn that regulatory decision. Goldman has argued that it has the final say on all bonus amounts and that Salem was aware of the policy.
Goldman’s lawyer, Andrew Frackman, said during a hearing on the case that Salem received more than $35 million in pay over six years and was better paid than his peers, Bloomberg reports. “He made a ton of money,” Frackman said at the hearing, according to Bloomberg. “He’s not entitled to more simply because he would like to have been paid more. If that were the case, you’d have traders and bankers in here every day of the week.”
OK – as you might imagine, the Freepers break down into three groups:
The ones who know they’ll always be poor and that the game is rigged:
All that for playing the lottery?!
I hope he wins. Looks like he got screwed here.
You are ignorant. You are not a trader. You do not understand that matter of which you speak. This is not sarcasm. If you call trading the “lottery” then you are in bed with the socialists.
How much money did wall street accept from the federal government to bail their failed asses out? Talk about socialism.
