As of 12:30 am CST the situation in Ferguson and surrounding areas remains lawless. Looters are running wild throughout the city. Men are walking down the streets with gas cans, doing what arsonists do. There are reports that the nearby Delwood police station is being looted. “Protestors” torched a car in the parking lot. Meanwhile ktvi.com reports that “St. Louis County police have confirmed that a University City police officer was shot around 11:45 pm near Canton Avenue and Lamb Avenue. The officer has been transported to the hospital. No word on the condition of the officer. Police are looking for a suspect.” Good luck with that. Cops are retreating all over the city – and beyond. Where the hell is the National Guard?
