Gotnews.com will continue to publish material from the citizens of Ferguson who are under siege by an unruly mob.
Thank you for considering my story. Here it goes…
I own a business here but it is ran [sic] out of my home. My business name is on the I Love Ferguson email list which has been infiltrated by protesters. Today I woke up to being placed on a list created by arrestwilson. Then I saw this gal (who I believe I blocked out of fear) posting info she was finding on these people that are on this list arrestwilson created. I am still trying to find her name and will forward it once I do. I’ve seen many protesters making remarks on twitter that they are going after the I love Ferguson supporters as well. So I fear that my speaking up is going to somehow come back to my business or worse my family. Threats to shut down any business speaking out against or not in support of the protesters by those on twitter or in the I love Ferg group. They’ve taken to walking into the neighborhoods to protest and I’m only a few blocks from the FPD station.
You may be aware of my fellow business owner of Faraci’s Pizza who was heavily harassed just last week. False claims of him pulling a gun and of course he must be racist.
My dear friend and customer who owns a auto body shop here in town has had his own experiences but I would like to forward your email to him so he may tell you himself.
Many of the business owners and residents have stories of being harassed or intimidated. When I’ve taken my stories to the Mayor or my council members I’m just told to lay low and let it blow over. They are scared shitless, too!
Then there is my batshit crazy state senator Maria Chappelle Nadal who is in full support of anything the protesters do and will not respond to my calls for showing support to her other constituents. Basically her support is not telling the protesters to attack us in full view on twitter.
The DOJ told us if things start to go bad just board up and head for safety. Seriously?!?!
This is my home for better or for worse. I don’t have the financial option to move. I have a weekly meeting this Thursday with other like minded residents and business owners. I can collect their stories as well or have them email them to you.
Thank you for listening. I’m not sure if it’s news worthy and I know you get a lot of hate, I know what it feels like so I wouldn’t wish more on you.
