Sen. McCaskill: Move Ferguson Protests to 'Green Space' and Screen for Guns

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) says she'd like to move the ongoing and frequently violent protests in Ferguson to public space that is away from the business district:

"Maybe we can move it to some green space and do some kind of just minimal screening to make sure guns are not going in," McCaskill told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Tuesday.

"But right now, there is surveillance going on, and there is a real effort to try to find the people who are actually wanting the confrontation and causing the violence and seeing if we can't begin to be more aggressive about making arrests of those people with the guns, with the weapons, and therefore make it safe for everyone.

"We over-policed for a few days, and then we completely under-policed," she continued. "I think what they're doing now is what they feel they have to do to keep it safe under these dangerous circumstances with these instigators in town."

McCaskill said the media is giving a one-sided view of what's happening in Ferguson.

The confrontations are well-covered, but "nobody's interested in covering any of the efforts that's going on with healing," and that is having a dire impact on small businesses, she said:

"One of my projects now is to figure out how we can pull people back n to shop in Ferguson -- it is perfectly safe in Ferguson during the day. There are many stores and businesses that need our commerce. I hate to see all these great small businesses in Ferguson suffering so terribly because their community is being portrayed in a way that frankly just isn't true."

What the hell she is talking about?  The genius lost me.

I can'tcomment I can't stop laughing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Where do they find these people....., what pea brained IDIOT.....!! 

The voters.

I am ashamed to say that Claire McCaskill is one of my U.S. Senators.  I opposed her re-election last time around.  She is a dedicated Demonrat/Marxist and total supporter of Barack Obama's MARXIST/COMMUNIST agenda..  That means she has and still is betraying the people of Missouri and the people of the United States.  I hope she can be defeated in her next election cycle.....we wiil be working on this important task.

Exactly... but she only won with the RNC/GOP's support...

You will recall that Todd Akin a former U.S. Representative for Missouri's 2nd congressional district, serving from 2001 to 2013, was running against Sen. Claire McCaskill as the GOP's dully elected candidate...  However, he was summarily thrown under the bus by the RINO's after he misspoke regarding abortion. 

He was 10 points ahead of Sen. McCaskill and a sure winner, but the RINO's did not want him to run for the US Senate, from the beginning, and had tried to defeat him in the primaries and lost.  The RNC/GOP Missouri chose to keep him out of the Senate, because he was a very, very strong moral Tea Party Candidate and with a history of being his own man. 

 The GOP decided they would rather see Sen. McCaskill elected than Rep. Todd Akin. So they sabotaged his campaign siding with Sen. McCaskill and the MSM's misrepresentation of Todd Akin's statement regarding abortion.   This speaks volumes about who is running the GOP today. The Grand Old Party is not the Party of Reagan... not at all.

Col  Nelson,

    You are exactly right......that is what happened.  It does prove that the GOP does not represent the interests of the American People or America itself.

I also agree.  Thank you Mo GOP for re-electing Claire.

Until Missouri can get rid of McCaskill & your Governor, I personally will not spend one dime in or knowingly buy anything from Missouri.  I am sure there are many good & decent people in Missouri but maybe if your Democrats/Marxists start losing revenue they will rethink their positions.    

We already are losing money. Businesses are fleeing the state. All we have left is the UAW in wait for it ! St. Louis, where it employs mostly blacks. You've seen the video of what they do on breaks with the heavy drinking and drug use. That explains all the recalls and highway deaths cause by p*ss poor cars build in the USA now !

Yea, the voters, the democrats, mostly from KC and St. Louis, keep voting this kitwit back in. 

when is the last time mc caskel was ever in Missouri ?

it would be difficult to shop in burned out liquor stores or any burned out stores in furgerson mo. will alternate side of the street parking rules be suspended during riot time ?

don't forget a majority of Missouri voters voted for her.

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
