    Please Xy--yer one of my favorite people on this board when yer not like this.
    A great moderate DEM governor has been tarred-and-feathered by the Black community unfairly.

    And where are the GOPs walking their "moderate" line defending him?
    Why has Sen. Blunt-R Missouri been so silent?

    Yer astute enough to see this election slipping away from GOPs on their month off as they keep talking.
    Meanwhile, GOPs have turned up the volume as to how they're going to wipe out the Dems, a sure sign of weakness .

    No I'm not, I'm just the only one who bothered to respond. Everybody else probably just rolled their eyes in disgust.

    Am I just missing all the positive comments?
    My comment wasn't meant to be positive or negative. There is no telling what will happen to you in a situation where the police are under attack. The police or the criminal could turn on you, so it's best to not get involved or stay around and watch.

    Both decisions were good decisions. Police officers do not own the community. They work FOR the community, and the community is the boss, not them. I know that tensions have been running high in Ferguson, but if you threaten to kill people, then you do not deserve to wear a badge under ANY circumstances. End of discussion....... Or is it?

    Article is here.
    It's interesting that neither of these officers was involved in the actual incident. I still think there's some kind of systemic problem in the department.

    We all love good cops. The op is about BAD cops, and the fact that they should be purged from ALL departments!!

    Moderator's Warning:
    Police officer resigns, another is fired after Ferguson incidents[W:76]The topic of the thread is not each other. Stick to addressing the OP and leaving the baiting, snarking, personal and zero-content comments out of it.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Re: Police officer resigns, another is fired after Ferguson incidents

    `
    Anecdotal - Flatout, I personally know of two city policemen who worked in communities with a sizable black population. Both got so burned out they quit as they saw themselves turning prejudicial. They explained it to me in depth. Two things struck me; a) a police administration that was unsympathetic and unresponsive to their malaise. b) What is scary is that there are many police that don't see (or refuse to recognize) how their behavior has changed towards certain people and don't seek help or just quit.

    None of this excuses the aggressive, inhuman actions of police but the way I see, police administrations are behind much of this.

    Rioting and destroying your own community is not the answer but I can't say I'm shocked - free for all - steal as much as you want!

    There is an appropriate way to deal with situations like this and ripping people off and acting like monkeys is not the correct way...

    I absolutely understand the anger but ripping businesses off is not the RIGHT thing to do... That is just terrible - they did nothing wrong.

    This is why guns are good!

    Wow....advocating a police walk out in the wake of two cops losing their jobs!

    Unbelievable! Not one suggestion that these cops, one of whom pointed a ****ing machine gun at people and threatened to kill them, might have, maybe erred, or even crossed a line.

    Meanwhile, while dribbling the usual bull**** about cops dying and no one cares that pops up every time a cop kills someone, which is a lot for you guys, you actually condone what would be criminal behavior in any advanced society. You know what?, even in The People's Republic of China the police can't do that.....but the American right insists this is all about "freedom" and the cops should be allowed to beat heads because their in a bad mood over weeks of demonstrating and riots that the police caused......now that's "security"

    If the threat to produce deliberate chaos is not an indication of the military/bully attitude these good people are protesting I have no idea what it might be. You did not get your way, cops have been rightfully disciplined for what would be criminal behavior anywhere else and your reaction is to threaten to leave the post of "serve and protect" and trigger the greatest civil war/race riot in the history of mankind.

    Yeah, that's a fine example of American police attitudes

    I think there was a tremendous outpouring of support when those two cops were gunned down at the WalMart in Las Vegas by those extremist loons. Wouldn't you agree?
