Missouri’s lieutenant governor demanded answers Tuesday morning after violence exploded overnight in Ferguson, Mo. following a grand jury decision not to indict a police officer who shot and killed an unarmed black teenager in August.
Appearing on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder took aim at Missouri’s chief executive: “If you are going to have the National Guard deployed and a state of emergency declared and then hold them back, I say the governor owes the people of Missouri a lot of explanations.”
Hours before the grand jury decision was announced, Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon appealed for calm and pledged authorities were “focused on making sure the necessary resources are at hand to protect lives, protect property and protect free speech.”
“It is not enough to stand at a press conference and mouth some lines that were prepared,” Kinder said. “You have to actually act.”
On Monday, November 17, Nixon signed an executive order activating the Missouri National Guard to “support law enforcement during any period of unrest that might occur following the grand jury’s decision concerning the investigation into the death of Michael Brown.” But those guardsmen were noticeable absent as rioters burned and looted as many as 25 buildings and vandalized police cars in Ferguson.
Feckless. Completely feckless.

Nixon is a democratic suck up. He got word from the pres last week not to interfere with any demonstrations. His conduct and actions represent stupidity on a galactic scale; but than, what can you expect from an illiterate democrat.
Where is al baby and the racist turd Jackson?
But most of all, where is Hillary?
Oh! did you all see the latest tee-shirt; the fool, brown and martin reads “the two sons I never had.”
The good citizens of Missouri need The Governor to explain why the National Guard was not used to protect people and property of Ferguson and adjacent areas. The dilemma for Nixon is cowardice and/ or orders from The Executive branch. “Feckless. Completely Feckless.” This sums up this very small man. Moreover, all those business owners who saw their dreams destroyed by looters need an answer a.s.a.p..
Gov Nixon needs to answer these questions.
Has he thrown himself under Obama’s bus for the sake of the Occupiers and New Black Panthers and Muslims and Bloods doing as Obama asked: stay the course
Looks like it.
Only Occupiers would have torched so many black-owned businesses.
Local people were trying hard to stop them.
But the vast majority of the businesses destroyed were black-owned.
Occupiers hate free enterprise whether it is black-owned or white-owned or brown-owned.
