    Letrs start with the only factual thing you just offered...

    "I GUESS...."

    At the end of the day no one knows what the **** they are protesting, protecting, or defending.

    Oh...but lets not let that slow anyone down.

    Yes, it's perfectly reasonable in such rare cases for such matters to be fully addressed and where necessary correction to procedures made and in the very rarest of cases, charges laid and prosecuted.

    Imagine if instances where a police officer is assaulted and wounded and/or killed were given the same media spotlight - you'd likely never see anything else on television, ever.

    Yeah, that story sounds perfectly realistic!
    Um, damn. Like, damn damn. Talk about trying to fit the square peg into the round hole, huh?

    I'd like to see a forklift try to push a 6'4" 300 pound guy through a car window.

    I didn't read the post you quoted, just your post, but please tell me that the post you quoted was satire or...something.

    And this should be investigated, as well; but not by a lynch mob.

    Maybe everybody should be up in arms and wreak havoc on the neighborhood it happened in just to bring attention to it.
    And to teach those in the neighborhood a lesson not to act that way.
    But alas, I am sure reasonable folks know that would work.

    I just watched the interview. The Chief said that the "initial" contact had nothing to do with the theft. That pretty much jives with witness accounts and the cops version (as told through a third party).

    It appears that the initial contact was simply because Brown and his buddy were walking in the middle of the street blocking traffic. Shortly after that initial contact it seems that a suspect description was broadcast so the cop backed up and attempted to detain Brown.

    I could be wrong but I think the post I quoted was very serious.
