So this guy takes these pictures….

“It was very odd that there was a bunch of Homeland Security cars there and I was shocked and took a picture and a short video and posted them to Facebook with the status update, ‘What are these vehicles doing here? I wonder if it has anything to do with Ferguson?'”

The next day his boss called him in and told him to take down the pictures. He removed them from his page and worked the rest of the day.

It was the day after that Paffrath says he was called into the office again. This time, he says the hotel chain’s director of security was there to fire him — and some of the things he said were hard to swallow for this man who served three years in the navy.

“He called me a terrorist and said I dishonorably served my country for posting those pictures and the short video,” he said. Then, “He gave me a threat that if I were to repost the pictures that I would be locked up and have DHS knocking on my door and all that other stuff.”

There has been no knock from federal authorities.

The Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Protective Service confirms that the vehicles belong to them. They refused comment on why so many are in town, and would not answer the specific question as to whether they are in place in anticipation of the St. Louis County Grand Jury’s decision in the case of Officer Darren Wilson. The Federal Protective Service handles security for all federal buildings and courthouses.


But St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson denies that there are federal agents in the area.

“This is a local law enforcement issue. So, you will not see any federal authorities, you will not see anybody on the ground,” Dotson says.

A representative from the Homeland Security office in Jefferson City, Missouri, sent KMOX an email saying, “the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has no role in the Ferguson Security Plan.”
