    Has there ever been a case where a riot (violence/destruction/theft/chaos/etc.) has not done more harm than good?

To me he is already the suspicious one from the word GO, and will continue to think that unless new facts prove otherwise.
    So if a black cop pulls over a white man in a white community, then all of the witnesses are liars also?

    Education is paramount and emphasized on a daily basis by parents who most likely possess College degrees.

    Kids are directed towards positive goals and activities when they're young and introduced to the prospects of higher education years before they head off to College.

    I know, its how I was raised.

    that's not a good comparison. I'd say that if a black cop was involved in an incident in a heavily Italian area and the victim was Italian....yeah, I'd take the eyewitness accounts as perhaps being biased for the Italian victim. absolutely.

    how does it help your point?

    And you've never progressed beyond the emotional maturity of a 4rth grader.

    You can't even distinguish the difference between a typo and mistake in grammar.

    What made your ignorant statement even more rich was it was at the beginning of your tirade about how important education is to the upper class. You closed mentioning it was that way with you. Next time you equate yourself as being superior, at least reread your posting.

    did you see the video. did you see what he did to that old man just trying to protect his own property?! and you feel good defend that person? and what does that say about you?
    In the interest of fairness, has it been confirmed that that's Brown in the video?

    I don't have the answers, but it seems that the first time the police confronted the two young men, they told them to get off the street and walk on the sidewalk. When the police car pulled away, the young men kept walking in the street so the police car stopped and the Brown came up to the passenger side of the police car and was conferring with the officer in that seat. The officer either pulled his gun out for some reason or the gun was visible to Brown and it seems there was a struggle for the gun and the gun went off in the car. After the gun went off, Brown started to run away at which point the officer shot at him, wounding him, and supposedly Brown turned around to surrender and the officer kept shooting at him until he was on the ground.

    There are no "facts" established at this point, but that appears to be the police "story". We'll know more when the autopsy results are disclosed, stating where Brown was hit and from what direction. If the story as presented above, or something similar, ends up being true, Brown is hardly an innocent murdered by a police officer but potentially a person who attempted to disarm and potentially murder a police officer. If the reports of the alleged "strong arm" robbery are correct, perhaps that information came over the police radio at the time Brown was at the police car talking with the officer. If so, Brown may have been trying to escape arrest.

    It's all speculation, but that's one possible scenario that makes sense to me. An officer simply murdering Brown in the middle of the day in the middle of a populated street makes little sense to me.
