    I don't know what you think but it looks to me like it will be a long time before there's ever any peace in Ferguson, Missouri.

    Basically what those cops are telling people is that they're going to do whatever they want to do.

    I don't believe that's going to bring people together.

    What do you think?
    Easy solution ... tell the Justice Department to f**k off.

    Don't have to ... I'm sure the NSA has already let them know.

    You might listen to some of the protesters, and learn something. The shooting was just the spark, but of course to learn that you'd have to pay attention to coverage not on Fox or Rush Limbaugh.

    If a cop shot and killed me tomorrow would any of you progressives even care? hell no you wouldn't.... You would probably call that "social justice"...

    Even easier, be a professional and don't wear bracelets to work that have the potential to make the situation you're trying to defuse worse.

    Why did he shoot him?

    What about all the GIANT wholes in his story?
    "Holes", and why don't you let the justice system do its job?

Beyond that, what the behavior by many of the white officers in Ferguson shows is that their (at the very least) "racial insensitivity" is very real.
    And of course you have no evidence that the cop shooting the robber had anything to do with robber's race.

    Your total lack of logical reasoning skills is noted.

    First, unless the local police chef orders his officers to stop wearing the bracelets,
    I do not think they have a legal obligation to do so.
    Second Perhaps just perhaps, the police officers are showing support for their fellow
    officer, because it could have been them instead.
    There is also a chance, the other officers in Ferguson know just a slight amount more
    about what went down than the people on this forum.
    Like it or not officer Darren Wilson is innocent until proven guilty by a court of law.
    While I think it might be unwise for them to ware bracelets in his support, it should be legal
    speech, unless their chef orders them to stop.

    Or, obey the law and don't riot, loot and burn? Don't form a lynch mob?
