A petition at the White House site:

We petition the Obama Administration to:

Let police do their job in Ferguson MO!

We the people are sick and tired of the protestors, rioters, and looters! These people are criminals and need to be arrested and prosecuted! Police cannot work to their full potential and are getting harassed and assaulted! Trespassing and vandalizing are against the law! There have been threats to even kill cops and white people up there! There is a difference in peaceful protesting and the stuff that is happening there.

Created: Oct 13, 2014

Issues: Criminal Justice and Law Enforcement, Economy, Family

Signatures needed by November 12, 2014 to reach goal of 100,000 99,093

Total signatures on this petition 907

[emphasis added]

The creator of the petition is from Cape Girardeau, Missouri.

“We the people are sick and tired of the protestors…”

Well, there is that pesky First Amendment, which by they way, the petitioner exercised with this petition. We suppose the lesser known “until other people are sick and tired” clause could be invoked for petitions to the White House, too.

“…There is a difference in peaceful protesting…”

Wait, didn’t the petitioner write that they were sick and tired of protesters?

We give up.
