    Well, we honestly don't know the story, but from what I have heard and seen on the news they were attacking the cop and trying to take his gun. Escalating the situation from something barely minor to a life and death struggle.

    Sounds like a good idea to me. It would keep those who obeyed the law safe.

    The black officers left for safer pastures. It seems like such a safe place to be.

    That's not crazy, that's just SOP for America's Militarized Police.

    The mentality is due to the militarization of the Police. The donation of surplus armored cars and weapons by the US military has just made this shoot first and get away with it attitude even worse.

    It's 2014 and these cops don't have dash cams? They rough up reporters who are recording them at a McDonalds. It gives me the appearance that they are used to hiding behind the blue shield.

    Once Mr. Brown broke away and was running away from the officer, it wasn't a life and death struggle for the officer. It was an execution.

    The police couldn't be handling this any worse. Where is the elected leadership? We don't hear from them either. The Governor is finally going down there today. This is a complete debacle all the way around.
