    Yeah, OK, another unbiased look at the situation. Thanks. Very persuasive.

    I guess when the next cop gets killed in the line of duty, then we should also demand that the black bands over the badges not be worn as well in deference to the family of the shooters presumption of innocence.

    I don't know. Since their police chief has ordered them not to wear them, I assume they now do! I'm guessing the 'dress code' is what the boss says it is for the most part.

    But this discussion is just us just giving our useless opinions here. I guess we disagree....

    It's an argument no one has made. Blacks, and even whites and browns!!, have no right to shoot police officers or otherwise be "felonious assholes."

    Actually you're right...The local chief caved, or hell I don't know thought better of what was allowed given the volatility of the street right now, it just must be awfully frustrating for the others that know damned well that what is a totally trumped up scene right now for headlines.

    I'm not sure why that would follow. In this case the unarmed person is dead, shot repeatedly by the police officer whose case is being presented before a grand jury. Entirely different facts often lead to entirely different conclusions.

    yep, they sure do...Only so far the evidence we know of, shows that the "unarmed'' person was assaulting an in uniform police officer.

    You are welcome. I keep my eyes open. The cop is innocent. The thug is both guilty and dead. All is right in the world.

    If the cop was guilty by now the dozens of Justice Department jack booted thugs would have been crowing and spiking the football. Have they?

    OK, I guess I just KNOW if it was my unarmed son killed or my unarmed best friend killed and the cops were wearing bracelets declaring their support for the killer, and patrolling protests of the killing of my son or friend or neighbor, it wouldn't give me confidence that the police who SERVE ME AND MY NEIGHBORS could be trusted. I'd look at it as a giant FU to my community by people we pay to serve US. If you can put yourself in their shoes and honestly believe otherwise, I guess that's fine. We just disagree.

    But as a matter of policy, that many would feel as I do is enough reason to ban the officers from wearing them. They can show their support on their own time, off duty, out of uniform. Not while they're getting paid to serve that community that disagrees with them. I'd think this decision by the Police Chief (or whatever his title is) probably took about 5 seconds to reach, or as long as it took the question to be asked. The answer, "Are you kidding me? Hell no you can't wear that stuff on duty! Are you high? We're trying to defuse this situation, not make it worse!"
    You start off ok then you swerve right into bigotry. Sure...if it was your kid I'm sure you might have your feelers hurt. But then you jump to 'your community' and immediately you have made it a racial incident. Does your 'community' then have to personally own all the violent crime and **** perpetrated by certain members of your community? Is your community condemned and subject to prejudgement?

    For people that dont know Tony Stewart, he is a NASCAR driver that killed a kid on a race car track. Some people suggested he did it intentionally, while others...drivers that know him, fans, track owners, and many others associated with NASCAR and sprint track racing...believe he would never have done anything to intentionally harm the kid and fully supported him. Does that mean all those that support Tony Stewart are pro murdering stupid 20 year old kids? (the fact the 20 year old is found to have been under the influence of marijuana AND got out of his car and ran towards the driver on a dark slick dirt track notwithstanding)


    Maybe that's what some of those cops were thinking.

    But what effect did it have in Ferguson where most of the residents are Black and almost all of the cops are White? Those guys are tone deaf.

    People doing things like that will never bring peace to Ferguson.
