    As the old saying goes - "if you don't participate, you have no right to bitch about the outcome". Those who hold positions of authority and elective office is entirely irrelevant to the incident at issue here and is only relevant as a false justification for perceived inequality of access and outcome.

    You really should read your own link before posting it...From your Wiki article:

    "Brown was allegedly involved in a felony strong arm robbery of a box of Swisher Sweets cigars at a convenience store prior to his death."

    So please don't try to paint this as some kind of young man that was just minding his own business and the cop just decided to harass him....That is simply not the case.

    Poll them yourself and ask them.

    I apparently did something wrong in the summer of 1980 before I went to college. I forgot to rob anyone.

    That deserves its own thread.

    The only answer is family and REAL education, not the political rubbish they consume at school.
    Saying it is unfixable is unhelpful.

    I suspect the community feels marginalized and therefore acts accordingly.
    It's also quite possible the white mayor was seen as doing a good job. There was a young lady, black, interviewed on CNN this morning who indicated that she was newly moved into the neighbourhood and found it was safe. She also noted that she'd been told by neighbours that there had been a number of burglaries, etc. and the community was happy because the police were doing more patrols in the area trying to discourage crime.

    That's anecdotal, but that doesn't sound like a community in fear of authority and in fear of the police or a community that feels marginalized and unsupported by the powers in control.

    I mean it's unfixable from anyone outside of their own communities. They have to take it from here.
