    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.
    A persons testimony, well there you have it, settled. It should have just been another Pleasant Valley Sunday.

    See why they feel marginalized?
    What else can outsiders do for them? They have to take the reins and responsibility sometime.

    One isn't so credible, because he omitted the part where he may have been involved in a crime.

In my view, these are the people who should be getting the publicity and community support and not the lawless animals who simply want an excuse to cause havoc.
    You have seen and heard them, as have we, they are being publicised. Who exactly is supporting the "lawless animals" criminal behaviour again? And not all those protesting, are committing acts of violence, and they have a constitutional right to be heard and acknowledged.

    Unless the cop's story turns out to be true; then, it doesn't look quite as bad for the cop.

    Professional racist - people who earn a living by shouting racism. Louis Farrikhan comes to mind. I can't find much about the school district, but do remember that the suit was about at large election of board members, that there were no Hispanics on the board, and that a lawsuit was filed in which the people suing walked away with a substantial sum of money.

    This is the only reference I could find online:

    Although the Cutler-Orosi case remains unresolved, the two Dinuba districts announced in August that they would adopt election systems with five single-member trustee districts. Two of the trustee wards in each school district would have a majority of Spanish-surnamed voters.
    Even before the Dinuba case was settled, officials in the nearby community of Sanger were moving to abandon their at-large election procedures to avoid being sued.
    The claim was that Hispanics were discriminated against by electing the board members at large.

    In addition, I suppose you believe that justifying, rationalizing and excusing such actions isn't a form of support.
    More dishonesty, who are these people justifying and excusing the unfortunate criminal behaviour of "some" of the protesters?

    Yes, allegedly.

    In a civil society the way things are supposed to work is that if someone is suspected of illegal activity the incident is investigated by an authority tasked with that responsibility. If that authority approaches the suspect and seeks to inquire about their side of the story and that suspect then assaults the authority it kind of throws things out of whack.

    We don't know all the facts and circumstances surrounding the incident in question but, at this point, all semblance of an investigation has been thrown out the window and people are seeking summary judgement against the authority.

    I saw people on my television insist they were abducted by aliens and others insist they saw George Bush personally launch missiles into the WTC towers before they fell. I of course believed them.
