As I’ve been saying from the outset, the residents of Ferguson have been held hostage by transients with an agenda. Over and over again the Ferguson rioters have proven they don’t know anything about this case, and continually answer questions about what happened incorrectly. They are just nomads with no job, no home, no purpose.
One, a 6-foot-8-inches man named Derrick Jordan — “Stretch,” as friends call him — whisked an AR-15 assault rifle out from a pickup truck parked near the entrance.
Jordan, 37, was one of four black Ferguson residents who spent Tuesday night planted in front of the store, pistols tucked into their waistbands, waiting to ward off looters or catch shoplifters.
