“On Sept. 30, 2011, Capt. David Glidden and Sheriff Darren White, both of the Nodaway County Sheriff’s Department, forcefully entered the home of Jason and Laura Hagan, without consent or court order,” the lawsuit detailed. “The officers peppered-sprayed Jason, Laura and their dog, and Glidden shot Jason with this Taser.”
A struggle allegedly ensued as Mr. White arrived on the scene. Court documents stated that Mr. Glidden used a Taser on Mr. Hagan multiple times, despite his wife’s claims that he suffered from chest pains and was treated at the emergency room earlier in the week.
As the nation waits to hear whether a Missouri police officer will face charges for killing unarmed teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., the FBI is warning law enforcement agencies across the country that the decision “will likely” lead some extremist protesters to threaten and even attack police officers or federal agents.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency Monday and activated the National Guard in advance of a grand jury decision about whether a white police officer will be charged in the fatal shooting of a black 18-year-old in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson.
Nixon said the National Guard would assist state and local police in case the grand jury's decision leads to a resurgence of the civil unrest that occurred in the days immediately after the Aug. 9 shooting of Michael Brown by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson.

Newly surfaced surveillance videos and dispatch calls from the day a Ferguson, Mo., police officer shot an unarmed 18-year-old contradict the police officer's version of events, attorneys representing Michael Brown's family said today.
The videos show Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson leaving for the hospital hours after he fatally shot Brown. The fatal shooting sparked weeks of protest in the Missouri city.
St. Louis-area resident Carolyn Colburn opened her front door two nights ago and had a bulletin from the City of Berkeley fall at her feet.
“The grand jury decision regarding the Ferguson police officer shooting of Michael Brown is expected this month — rumored as the middle of November, possibly this week,” warned the “News Alert” from town officials.
“It is important that we all plan ahead in the event that conditions warrant each of us to stay at or very close to our homes for several days,” stated the flier, which Berkeley distributed to 3,000 homes this week.
"I think confusion is of the devil. I think the public image that came across was confusion," said Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia. (Speaking of the Pope)
Heard a theory that this is in revelations as the Vatican is a part of the EU and the Pope could technically be elected to rule under EU laws. Of course I'm not saying the Pope is the antichrist: the archbishop is.

I guess I should start it now, because within the next 7 days we probably should keep all of the posts in one thread as the riots break out. So as this thing escalates, dump all of the video, and comments here in one place so we can all keep up on what you are seeing. Sound ok? I personally would like to come to one thread and see everything that has posted. Here is tonight's stuff.
FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Missouri police have been brushing up on constitutional rights and stocking up on riot gear to prepare for a grand jury's decision about whether to charge a white police officer who fatally shot a black 18-year-old in suburban St. Louis.
The preparations are aimed at avoiding a renewed outbreak of violence during the potentially large demonstrations that could follow an announcement of whether Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson will face a criminal trial for the Aug. 9 death of Michael Brown.
