Standing for what’s right, racial politics be damned.

On Tuesday night, as police and soldiers took up positions in the parking lots of virtually every strip mall and big box store around it, the forecourt of the brightly lit gas station was busy with customers.

One, a six feet, eight-inch tall man named Derrick Jordan – “Stretch,” as friends call him – whisked an AR-15 assault rifle out from a pickup truck parked near the entrance.

Jordan, 37, was one of four black Ferguson residents who spent Tuesday night planted in front of the store, pistols tucked into their waistbands, waiting to ward off looters or catch shoplifters.

  1. NOT ONE WORD!
    Not one word about this on the local STL news about this, not one!
    And, that is what we’re up against. This and Natalie, the cake shop lady, might be the only two good stories about Ferguson. Thank God that people are doing a great job helping Ms Natalie, now how about some recognition and thank you’s for Strecth, RJ, and friends?!
    Thank you for sharing this, Miguel! I live here, watch, listen, and follow constantly the events here, and this is the first I’ve heard of it.

    1. The story of Ms Natalie broke my heart and I am so happy she is back to making her cakes because there are more good people out there than idiots bent on destroying communities.
