    No we weren't. We were discussing the rioting and looting in Ferguson. The color of the people looting and rioting, the education level of the people looting and rioting, the gender of the people looting and rioting, and the careers of the people looting and rioting was never mentioned by me until you brought it up. I used the words "decent" and "normal" and never once mentioned any of those things you just said.

    Congressman wants to curb military surplus program

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Images of police outfitted in paramilitary gear clashing with protesters in suburban St. Louis after the weekend shooting death of unarmed black teenager is giving new impetus to efforts to rein in a Pentagon program that provides free machine guns and other surplus military equipment to local law enforcement agencies.

    Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Ga., says he plans to introduce legislation when Congress returns in September to curb what he describes as an increasing militarization of police agencies across the country.

    "Our Main Streets should be a place for business, families and relaxation, not tanks and M16s," Johnson said Thursday. "Militarizing America's Main Streets won't make us any safer, just more fearful and more reticent."

    Attorney General Eric Holder said he's concerned that use of military equipment by police in Ferguson, Missouri, is sending a "conflicting message." Holder said authorities there have accepted the Justice Department's offer of crowd-control help as it continues to investigate the Saturday shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
    I'm also concerned about police department outfitting themselves for military-like action in the field. This is total overkill, and what do they think their mission really is?
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Holy crap. THREE crimes? OMG. What a crazy p!ace. Nowhere has three crimes happened in one week. Especially after cops kill a kid. I mean killing people tends to calm everyone down right?

    as far as the people taking part in the other CRIMES that is just plain stupid, its counterproductive and illogical and a huge case of plain old stupid.
    The cops are definitely acting suspect. A shooting happened and they have yet to question a single witness... And there were witnesses. Doesn't make any sense.

    The lootings not justified ? How can you say that ? You and the looters share an opinion.

    That opinion based on witness accounts DOES justify rioting apparently but the problem is those accounts are NOT complete.

    I haven't heard one of the witnesses explain how the Police officer recieved his injuries.

    What happened INSIDE the Police cruiser ? I bet you there was allot more than " arm wrestling " going on and I dont believe for one second that the door was kicked shut accidentally.

    If this kid went for the officers gun the SHOOTING is justified, but there is not one witness account that mentions it.

    Once the officer had control of his firearm and Mr. Brown was running away the officer had no reasonable reason to keep shooting him.

    This source says the police officer approached them because they were walking in the middle of the street. Things went down hill from there.

    Next time pick better, credible sources for your posts. Good job maligning an innocent man by repeating false information.

    Can anyone confirm if the officer Darren Wilson is white or Black?
    If he is Black, it would likely remove the large racial component there.

    Why exactly would that make a difference?
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.
