Ferguson: Curfew

February 12, 1942:

A special curfew for Jews was proclaimed yesterday by the German military authorities throughout occupied France, it is reported here today by the Deutsche Nachrichten Bureau, official Nazi news agency. No Jew is permitted to leave his home after eight o’clock in the evening.

August 16, 2014: 

A special curfew for residents of Ferguson, Missouri, was proclaimed by the state authorities throughout the city of Ferguson. No resident is allowed to protest or be out in the streets after 12:00 midnight. 

To equate this curfew to Nazi Military Authorities may be a bit of a stretch, but not so much that it's entirely unreasonable. The people of Ferguson are calling for justice, calling for answers to the death of Mike Brown. This curfew has been called for because of a relatively small amount of rioting and looting in the city, that was greatly opposed by the citizens in a major rally to show solidarity and that they are not unlawful, which was quickly put down.

Governor Dixon deflected questions and stepped away from the microphone during a press conference when asked directly about what is being done to find justice.

Where this leads, only time will tell, but the sad truth is that this behavior has been seen in the past and it is very disturbing and alarming to see it starting to play out in the United States of America.

We must have this nipped quickly, before these state governments decide that they can impose unconstitutional laws on it's people.

Stay Informed.
