Voices will be heard in the air. Men will beat their heads against walls, call for their death, and on another side death will be their torment. Blood will flow on all sides. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
“The true faith to the Lord having been forgotten, each individual will want to be on his own and be superior to people of same identity, they will abolish civil rights as well as ecclesiastical, all order and all justice would be trampled underfoot and only homicides, hate, jealousy, lies and dissension would be seen without love for country or family.Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
A West Point man was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries after he and a friend were attacked by a group of around 20 people in a Huddle House parking lot, police said, potentially as retaliation for Michael Brown's killing.
Ralph Weems IV, who is white, was injured early Saturday but is now in fair condition at North Mississippi Medical Center, hospital spokeswoman Genie Causey said.
A relative, Bradley Barnes of Madison, told The Associated Press by telephone on Sunday that his brother-in-law was in a medically induced coma following brain surgery.
'They're going to try and wake him up tomorrow and see what damage was done,' Barnes said, describing Weems as a 32-year-old former Marine who had served in Iraq.Police Chief Tim Brinkley told the Clarion-Ledger that 22-year-old Courtez McMillian of Okolona was arrested on Monday evening.
He is being held in the Clay County Detention Center and will be charged with aggravated assault.
Brinkley said other arrests are also pending, and that most, if not all of the assailants appear to come from Monroe County. Detectives are reviewing video footage of the incident.
David Knighten of West Point told AP earlier by phone that he and Weems had gone to a Waffle House early Saturday.
He said a black man waved him over outside the restaurant and told him politely that people were upset by the killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and it wasn't a safe place for whites.
When he went in, he said, Weems was inside and was arguing with a round seven black men.
They left after an argument that brought police, Knighten said.
Brinkley said a Waffle House employee told officers who answered a 1 a.m. disturbance call that a patron was creating a disturbance and upsetting other patrons.
After he was asked to leave, employees also asked the other patrons to leave, Brinkley said. Knighten said he showed those officers his .45-caliber handgun and his concealed carry permit.
On the way to Weems' house, Knighten said, they went into a Huddle House restaurant with a nearly vacant parking lot.
However, he said, they apparently had been followed by a group of more than 20 black men.
Knighten, who said he had served with the Air Force in Afghanistan, said he came out of the restroom to find Weems surrounded.
'I was trying to defuse the situation,' he said.
After some shoving, he said, the security guard told everyone to leave.
Knighten said some people blocked him from leaving with Weems.
When he got out, he said, Weems was down and people were kicking him. Daily Mail Read More>>>

"I protest highly against a different text, which people may dare publish after my death. I protest once more against the very false statements of all those who dare say and write First that I embroidered the Secret; second, against those who state that the Queen Mother did not say to transmit the Secret to all her people."
