    Thug is the new "n" word? No, Rob. The word thug is a few hundred years old and has been used for generations to describe criminals, robbers, petty thieves, tough guys, etc. There is no racism in that word, unless you're looking for and desperately trying to bring race into a word.

    This is all liberals have today in the face of their bold lies, and deception. In this they kneejerk jumped from day one to the side of misinformation, and Law Enforcement bashing. Now that the facts are dribbling out and looking more and more like the officer was totally justified in using the force he used, they jump straight to the racist slur. Not only are they unimaginative, but they are lazy in their debate skills as well.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    It frosts me to see posts like that. I know Rob was repeating what someone else said, but that kind of **** doesn't help anyone or anything.

    I've used the word "thug" since I was little. I described lily white bullies as "thugs". I detest these "code word" accusations and **** like that. It's irresponsible, too.

    There's no proof of that. The video of it is sketchy.

    And that's the trouble w/conservatives--whenever they say the "facts are dribbling out", and we ask them to cite them from credible sources, they just run around the mulberry bush.

    Because the media already has the story they want: white cop executes black baby.

    They can't refute that story now. It blows their narrative. Didn't you watch the Trayvon case at all? MsNBC edited footage to make it an issue of race.

    Actually, no, it's not the "most likely". In fact, it's probably one of the least likely I've seen to date.

    Ok, bear with me. I'm using multiple sources to get them together....This one seems to have them all in order to be addressed.

    1) Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson shot and killed teenager Michael Brown on Saturday, August 9
    2) Ferguson is a majority-black city with an overwhelmingly white police force and city government
    3) Police and eyewitnesses gave contradictory accounts of the shooting
    4) Several different law enforcement agencies are involved in the response to the shooting and the protests
    5) The police have refused to release the autopsy report or any information about their investigation of what happened during the shooting
    6) Protests began immediately after Brown's death, and continued throughout the week
    7) The protests were met with an aggressive police response
    8) The police released information suggesting Brown had stolen from a convenience store, but that wasn't the reason Wilson stopped him
    9) The federal government is also investigating Brown's death

    9 essential facts about Ferguson and the shooting of Michael Brown

    Now let me address them one by one.

    1.) No disputing this one...What surrounds the "Why" is what people are speculating on, and wildly going off on tangents that do little but whip up bitterness.

    2.) While the racial make up of the police force is predominately white, it is used here to suggest that the force is a racist one, with no substantiating information to show that this is intentional. It is dishonest in its implication.

    3.) Yes, and police rightfully have kept most details close to the vest. Investigations rarely release ALL facts instantaneously, if they did, NO ONE would get a fair trial.

    4.) One of the first criticisms in the Trayvon Martin case was that the Sanford police tried to cover things up. This Police chief did the right thing in shifting the investigative responsibilities to the county rather than try to keep it in house specifically to avoid this appearance.

    5.) This is and should remain pretty standard. The "lynch mob" mentality surrounding this case, and the already shown propensity of those agitators out there to twist what is released would so taint any jury pool that a fair trial would be out of the question.

    6.) "Protests" - Although I am sure that there were genuine protests that began, the media chose to go to the sensational and show only the damage, and looting. So, Now that we can see that there are two distinct groups, a. the resident protesters, and b. the outside agitators, and anarchists at night that are only there to clash with police, it is proper to separate the two.

    7.) The looting, and damage to the community were met with aggressive response as they should be. Businesses burned, looted, and damaged are not ways to entice business into these under served communities. If anything, it will drive them out leaving them with less services.

    8.) It wasn't just suggesting, it was verified by not only Brown's family, but Brown's friend who was with him during the robbery.

    9.) Yep, real Kabuki theater here. This is a state of MO. problem, and totally the states call right now. That the call for Obama to make statements, and get the federal government involved shows people totally do not understand our government, or their responsibilities, or separations.

    There, No dancing, just straight facts, and my opinion of them....Care to discuss?
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
