Other officers forced to intervene during shock incident
Shocking footage out of Ferguson, Missouri shows a police officer pointing his gun directly at protesters and press while remarking, “I’m going to f***ing kill you!”
The scene was witnessed by Infowars reporter Joe Biggs who was also filming the incident. The clip shows a Ferguson officer with his gun raised pointing it directly at a citizen journalist who was live streaming at the time.
“Oh my God, gun raised, gun raised,” states the journalist, before Biggs remarks, “gun pointed.”
“My hands are up bro, my hands are up,” states the journalist before the cop responds, “I’m going to f***ing kill you, get back, get back!”
“You’re going to kill him?” asks another individual before the journalist asks, “did he just threaten to kill me?”
When the cop is asked for his name he responds, “go fuck yourself.”
Another clip shows the officer pointing his gun as protesters demand he lower the weapon.
A second cop intervenes to make the officer lower his weapon as more irate demonstrators demand to know the officer’s name.
The officer’s response to people asking for his name almost immediately prompted the launch of the Twitter hashtag #officergofuckyourself.
Biggs live tweeted the incident, while Infowars reporter Mikael Thalen also had guns pointed at him during a separate incident.

Biggs took this photograph of the cop at close range.
The incident is certain to stoke huge controversy given that authorities in Ferguson have repeatedly broken promises to de-escalate tensions amidst continued unrest.

Suspended St. Louis Police Officer: “I’m Into Diversity, I Kill Everybody”
A St. Louis County police officer, who was seen pushing a CNN anchor during protests in Ferguson, Mo., this week, was suspended from duty after a controversial video surfaced, in which he fashions himself as a merciless killer.
“I personally believe in Jesus Christ as my lord and savior, but I’m also a killer,” said officer Dan Page, a 35-year veteran, in the video. “I’ve killed a lot. And if I need to, I’ll kill a whole bunch more. If you don’t want to get killed, don’t show up in front of me. I have no problems with it. God did not raise me to be a coward.” Page added, “I’m into diversity — I kill everybody. I don’t care.”
St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said Page has been suspended, pending a review by the internal affairs unit, which will begin Monday. The video was brought to Belmar’s attention by CNN’s Don Lemon.
“With the comments on killing, that was obviously something that deeply disturbed me immediately,”Belmar told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
The comments, which were made before members of the Christian organization, the Oath Keepers, also included his story of going to Kenya in search of “undocumented president,” Barack Obama. “I flew to Africa, right there, and I went to our undocumented president’s home,” Page said, holding a picture of him in Kenya. “He was born in Kenya.”
Page has been ordered to take a psychiatric exam, according to Belmar, who issued a public apology for Page’s remarks. “He does not represent the rank-and-file of [the] St. Louis County Police Department,” Belmar told CNN in a Friday on-air interview.
