    They have an excellent history of making up crap as they go along....maybe that is the reason they are in constant trouble.
    What rule are they breaking by supporting a fellow officer?

    Oh, is that what the DOJ is for? The thought police?

    How is supporting a fellow officer, "racism"

    Between now and an official trial and verdict - everything's in the air.
    If people would step back, be reasonable, and stop taking sides injudiciously this entire fiasco wouldn't even be happening.


    When you talk about people being reasonable you're asking for something that's not going to happen.

    Reason has no place in conversations about race for a lot of people, unfortunately.

    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.


    Anyone who doesn't see that is blind to reality.

    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?
    This is nothing more than union solidarity, from what I can see. Out of curiosity, under what authority would the US Justice Department presume to order a local police department's conduct?

    It is not the police, it is the DOJ telling them what to do.

    Why would they listen to what they have to say?

    I agree with the first part, but the second part could get messy.
