TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY ACTIVIST CALEB THREATENED AT GUNPOINT BY POLICE!!! FERGUSON, MISSOURI UNREST RAGES ON!!!
This is kind of a "where are they now?" post that also serves a fact check to obedient Kansas City media attempting to squash the Ferguson, Missouri uprising.
To wit . . .
KANSAS CITY ACTIVIST CALEB WAS THREATENED AT GUNPOINT LAST NIGHT BY THE POLICE DURING A NON-VIOLENT FERGUSON, MISSOURI PROTEST!!!
You guys remember Caleb Michael-Files . . . He has been on our TKC TOP 20 UNDER 30 Kansas City list a few times, he's a friend of this blog, a prominent Democratic Party activist and he recently worked on the pro-street car campaign. He's a progressive, yes . . . But not a fire bomb throwing anarchist at all. I believe Caleb ventured to Ferguson, MO from his new NYC residence in order to report the crisis for a website.
Anyhoo . . .
LAST NIGHT CALEB HAD A POLICE OFFICER POINT WHAT LOOKS LIKE A SEMI-AUTOMATIC RIFLE AT HIM AND MEMBERS OF A PEACEFUL DEMONSTRATION!!!
We talked to Caleb about the incident and he described the Ferguson, Missouri scene in an EXCLUSIVE TKC Interview . . . Here's the money quote:
Caleb Seyz: "Second night in a row was knocked down by a police officer. Held down with gun in my face last night."
Check the video footage . . .

There are a lot of things that are messed up about this incident but what's really frightening is that this law enforcement dude CLEARLY looks scared. You can see the fear in his eyes and even his police officer pal is trying to get him to put down his weapon.
More than anything, for TKC . . . This clip is a sign that Ferguson is now completely out of control after dark.
Moreover . . .
THE FERGUSON, MISSOURI UPRISING RAGES ON!!! MSM ATTEMPTING TO TALK DOWN THE DRAMA SEEMS LIKE NOTHING MORE THAN PROPAGANDA!!! GOV. JAY IS NOW UNDER SIEGE AMID A CRISIS THAT HAS CAPTURED THE ATTENTION OF THE ENTIRE NATION AND THE WORLD!!!
Here are more links on the situation that some believe isn't anywhere close to finished . . .
