    Your theory hasn't played out in the riots that have struck Southern California on numerous occasions. I can see how the "us versus them" issue could be dialed back a bit if the stereotypes pushed by the race baiters didn't have a visual connection.

    if you were a white cop, looking at a large group of angry black people, wouldnt you want more than a tan shirt between you and them?

    please try to look at it from their perspective as well as what the crowd may see

    A.G. Holder "deeply concerned" about use of military gear in Ferguson!

    U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder emphasized Thursday that the events unfolding in Ferguson, Mo., "cannot continue" and condemned both acts of violence by the public and heavy-handedness by law enforcement.

    53 cops, of which 50 are white and 3 are black. Policing a population that is 70% African American. Cops generally aren't the most understanding people in the world, and their normal reaction is to shoot first and ask questions later. When the cop is white and the victim black, you get a reaction from people who are convinced the system is rigged against them. That you can't see that makes your lean of 'slightly conservative' to be an understatement.

    Just pull the police out altogether and let them figure it out themselves.

    We aren't talking about riots in LA 20 years ago. We're talking about today and a bunch of white cops that dress up like combat soldiers and behave like they're in enemy country, regardless of who they're dealing with.

    Works for me. Of course at some point somebody is going to have to answer the question of why an unarmed black kid walking away from the cops was shot multiple times. For some reason these kinds of issues never bother conservatives.

    WASHINGTON — A Democratic congressman plans to introduce a bill to restrict a Defense Department program that provides machine guns and other surplus military equipment for free to local law enforcement agencies across the country.

    Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Ga., said the legislation is in response to the death of an unarmed teenager who was shot by a police officer in a St. Louis suburb. The bill comes as members of Congress have called for the Justice Department to investigate the shooting of a black teen by a white police officer in Ferguson, Mo.

    I'm confused. I hadn't heard that the young man killed in Ferguson was the victim of improperly used surplus military equipment.

    This sounds to me like another knee jerk reaction by a politician who feels every action requires an ignorant reaction from a politician.
