    How do you know the cops didn't film the whole thing themselves using 2-3 Black actors?

    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.

    Actually, I think from what I've seen and heard in interviews that there are a lot of good people, people of faith, people with principle and decency to guide them, in this little place called Ferguson, Missouri. Some of the people who've come out and spoken against the violence, burning and looting, and some who've said let the investigation play out. I don't think they need to be taught a lesson but the media needs to spend less time focused on the bad actors or this isn't going to move forward.
    Oh boy.
    My bad.
    My quote was edited before you posted, but the edit should have read.

    I would say inappropriate for the forum, but I see no disrespect in posting it.

    My understanding is that when he initially made contact with the thugs he wasn't responding to the robbery. He just told them to get on the sidewalk because they were walking down the middle of the street like a couple of complete idiots. Then after he started driving away a description of the robbers came over the radio and he threw it in reverse.

    If your going to make claims like this, you should at least back it up with some evidence.

They convince themselves that this could be the only thing that happened, and that the story of the blacks at the scene would be wholesome testimonies to the integrity of the loving son that got shot down in the street. It boggles my mind how incredibly gullible people are. It's like they've never been to the hood or seen ghetto culture up close, and to think that wearing your pants down to your knees, dreads and Tat's up the neck, and unable to form a coherent sentence in English would remind us all that it's really nothing to be concerned or evaluated, no, we only need to condemn the cop that undergoes periodic psychological testing, intense training, and situational awareness because he's the evil PIGS..

    Jesus Christ almighty.. Granted, no rush to condemn the kid, but hell, utilizing a modicum of common sense one cannot possibly rush to condemn the cop either, if anything, this would be the last person to blame.


    Tim-
    What kind of message does that send? That cops can shoot and kill people without good reason and get away with it? Giving cops the benefit of the doubt is very dangerous. We must hold them to a higher standard or they lose their credibility as "protectors" and become predators instead.
    This story from 2000 is burned into my mind as an example of police as predators. What do you think of the police behavior here?

    Los Angeles Halloween party ended in tragedy Sunday morning when actor Anthony Dwain Lee was shot and killed by police

    Lee, 39, who appeared in the 1997 movie Liar, Liar and on several television shows, including NYPD Blue, was shot several times by Officer Tarriel Hopper, the Los Angeles Police Department said in a statement. Hopper said Lee pointed what turned out to be a fake gun at him from inside the Benedict Canyon mansion known as "The Castle."

    The police officer and his partner were responding to a noise complaint about the party. They arrived at approximately 1 a.m. and went around back to search for the owner, police said. The police spotted Lee and two other partygoers in a small room. According to the police, Lee then pointed what appeared to be a gun at the officers, and Hopper responded by firing several times, fatally wounding the actor.

    Friends of Lee told television station KTLA-5 that some guests at the party were costumed as police, and that the real police never identified themselves as such before opening fire. According to radio station KROQ, Lee was in costume as a devil.

    "[Police Officer Hopper] had no way of knowing [the gun] was fake, even though people were in costume. If you feel your life is threatened, you react in the way you were trained," said Officer Charlotte Broughton, a police spokeswoman.

    Do you not know the evidence in this case? Brown attacked the Officer, tried to get his gun. The Officer received injury to his face from Brown.




    And then there is this.
    An eye witness basically saying the same thing that has been reported.
