MO Sen. Roy Blunt: Police Vehicles Suffered $100,000 in Damages During #Ferguson Riots – Six People Shot

Exclusive to The Gateway Pundit—
Missouri Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) told The Gateway Pundit on Thursday that police vehicles suffered $100,000 in damages during the Ferguson rioting. Much of the damage was from gunfire.

And, here we were told these were peaceful protests?

In August, Senator Blunt urged the Department of Justice to identify available resources to help the local law enforcement agencies pay for their security work in Ferguson.

“Law enforcement agencies from across Missouri have contributed officers and support to help provide security for the residents and businesses in the Ferguson community,” Blunt wrote. “Many of these state and local law enforcement agencies struggle to meet their immediate needs and do not have the resources to respond to the levels of civil unrest that has taken place in Ferguson in recent weeks.

“State and local law enforcement agencies that have responded to the security needs in Ferguson relied on their own budgets,” Blunt continued. “It has come to my attention that Missouri state and local law enforcement agencies may be in need of additional resources due to the unanticipated costs of responding to the unrest in Ferguson.”

According to Senator Roy Blunt at least half a dozen protesters were shot by fellow protesters in Ferguson.

Ferguson Missouri Police Chief Thomas Jackson told Sean Hannity that the Ferguson police had been shot at every night during the rioting. He also said he had been shot at.

For some reason the mainstream media ignored this information during the riots.
