Politics / State Of Emergency And Curfew Declared In US Town Of Ferguson by ProudUSA: 2:03am On Aug 17
Oh, boy.

Mo. gov. declares state of emergency, curfew in Ferguson

FERGUSON, Mo. — Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency and curfew in Ferguson, Mo., on Saturday, following nights of protests after 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by a police officer.

"If we're going to have justice, we must first have and maintain peace," Nixon said at a Saturday afternoon press conference. "The eyes of the world are watching."

Captain Ron Johnson of the Missouri State Highway Patrol says the curfew will run from midnight to 5 a.m. local time Sunday and will be enforced through conversations, not tear gas and tanks.
"We will survive this and will make a change," Johnson says.
Malik Shabazz, a member of Black Lawyers for Justice, said he has been working with a coalition of groups to help disperse crowds and keep the peace in Ferguson for the past several days.

Now, he is worried the curfew will make it harder for him to help authorities. He thinks the curfew asks people to go home too early. The past few nights, Shabazz said, people went home around 1:30 a.m.
He asked Johnson to extend the curfew during the news conference, where it was announced. Johnson however said it would stand.
"I don't want our people to get hurt," he said. "It's Saturday night. Twelve midnight is an early time. ... I can't be responsible for his timeline so it is what it is."

Margaret Huang, deputy executive director of Amnesty International USA, disagrees with the curfew.
"It's clear that the community doesn't feel heard," Huang says. "It's hard to build trust when the governor won't meet with community members and restricts their movements with a curfew. The people of Ferguson should not have their rights further restricted."

Daniel Moore, 42, of Ferguson said he thought a curfew would only make things more tense among protesters and the police. Moore said he fears police will use the curfew as an excuse to harass people on foot and in cars.
"It's silly," Moore said as he stood among fellow protesters at QuikTrip. "They just want to control everything. ... I guess they what us to obey — I can't tell if I will."
Derrick Brown, 25, said he was optimistic that people would abide by the curfew but wasn't sure whether he supported it.
"It'll be interesting to see the crowd move at midnight," Brown said. "I'm curious to see how that process will unfold."

It's really a sad shame. The race issue remains a major unresolved problem in America.

All's fine, thanks. Hahaha, it's not macro setting on the camera par say but careful close-ups and zooms.

Thanks, VillageBoi smiley

I came across an article online on the AfriNolly competition earlier this year but I didn't bother reading it since the word 'Nolly' had me assuming it was just for 'Nollywood film' producers. Never mind, next time.

Was that a scorpion @2.44? It was bloody HUGE!! And the red in the trees @3.40 - simply beautiful.

I love those trees as well - red flowers seem to outnumber and dominate their green leaves.

Yep, some guy with keen eyesight spotted that scorpion in the grass right from up on the second floor on a building in the UNILORIN campus. He ran downstairs to take it out before it stung someone.

Dude I don't even have to talk - you know exactly what I say about every video you post.

This one is the same... I love, love, love, love, love your videos. Nature just kills. Dayum, I wish I were there.

Ooh, you've bought a new camera right? Wikid!

I'll tell you something funny that just happened. I was on the phone to my sister then started watching this video and after 3 mins I was like "Why did he post a video with no sound, he never does that." Bushman wey I be, I had the wrong headphones on lolol.

Watching it all over again now... yeehaa!!


cheesy
Hahaha, that part with the headphones was funny!

Thanks for the kind encouraging words, man. No, no new camera just yet.

Nigeria is lovely, people are just always too busy to notice or take things for granted. Just stop, stay quiet, observe with a camera in hand and you'll see what I mean.
