Things seem to be progressing swimmingly in Ferguson, Mo., and environs. Last night, Gov. Jay Nixon imposed a midnight curfew on the town, which greatly inconvenienced the looters, who were forced to do their looting one town over.

Fortunately, they were did not come away empty-handed.

But wait, there's more. Those who choose to remain in Ferguson to keep the home fires burning (along with cars, houses, and whatever else they are able to torch) held a friendly sing-along. It wasn't "Kumbaya" that they chanted, however.

Here are the "lyrics":

AGITATOR WITH MEGAPHONE: What is his name?

CROWD: Darren Wilson!

AGITATOR WITH MEGAPHONE: Who do we want?

CROWD: Darren Wilson!

AGITATOR WITH MEGAPHONE: How do we want him?

CROWD: Dead!

Elsewhere in the news, Yahoo and other mainstream media sources have made the apprehension and identification of Williams easy. From Liberty Unyielding:

Whether your goal is simply to draw a bullseye over his face or to know who to gun down when you see him, Yahoo News aims to oblige by publishing photos of officer Darren Wilson, the man who shot and killed Michael Brown. (As a courtesy to Wilson and his family, and in the interests of serving justice, no link to the page will be provided.)

Yahoo’s excuse for this abomination and breach of journalistic ethics is reputedly to share the advice that Wilson earned a commendation for his “extraordinary effort in the line of duty.”

CNN followed suit with a report showing Wilson's house, including the street number. The officer has received death threats and has been in hiding since the shooting last Saturday. The Washington Post also named the street where Wilson lives.
