Demonstrators took over what was a planned news conference by the Ferguson police chief Tom Jackson. There was very intense rhetoric from some speakers in the crowd. The chief was supposed to hold a news conference at noon. Chief Jackson left the area. A member of the New Black Panther Party, Hashim Nzinga was inside the fire department as well as dozens of protesters. “This is a shame that as we speak the president of United States is talking to Russia, he’s talking to China, he’s talking to North Korea, he’s talking to Iraq and the Middle East about treating their people better,” he said. “But as he look out the window at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, he’s watching the black man, who built the White House, shot down like dogs.” Nzinga also claimed Obama is from Kenya, calling him a “Mau Mau.” “He need to go back to his roots and stop people from killing Africans in the streets,” he added.
