Ferguson cop aims automatic rifle at unarmed protesters: ‘I will fu*king kill you!’
As protests continued on Tuesday night in Ferguson, Missouri following the shooting death of Michael Brown, a Ferguson police officer was caught pointing an automatic rifle at unarmed protesters and journalists and threatening them: “I will fucking kill you!”
The protesters were all unarmed, which they asserted repeatedly, and were clearly exasperated by the cop’s overreach. The incident took place at 11:55pm CT:
Protesters followed Officer Go Fuck Yourself, demanding that his sergeant take his gun away and requesting his name. Neither the officer nor his supervisor would supply it. But Caleb-Michael Files, journalist with The Youngist, who shot one of the videos, has learned that the officer’s name is Ray Albers.
