    something doesn't appear right in this police unit

    The cops in both this and the Gardner case instigated and escalated the situation. Imo, there should be convictions because it sure as hell wasn't self defense.
    Rioting and looting are protected by The Constitution, now? Seriously, what planet do you live on?

    I think the riots were about a lot of lower socio-economic and uneducated black youth that went wild and much of the community followed, unfortunately.

    Sounds like blacks aren't interested in LE in Ferguson.

    AT those level of odds? Doubt it. More like friends hiring friends I'd bet.

    Nah, sounds more like a lack of interest. And seemingly supported by a segment of the population's willingness to engage in riotous behavior.
    Either that or a lack of interest in the local, coupled with seeking opportunities elsewhere.

The fact that the community seems to be minority in the majority but are not being hired... doesn't seem right in the hiring practices.
    Part of that isn't the fault though of police practices though. Through a combination of general distrust in police forces in general (which I think is overplayed but I'm not going to deny it exists) to the fact there are a lot of blacks out there (disproportionately speaking) with rap sheets, I doubt you're going to find a lot of black cops anywhere though.

    Give me a break. You act like those who are attracted to the field of police are all benevolent do gooders and never the napolean complex folks.
