    One of these cops needs to bring suit.


    Bring it on.

    Do you seriously think that he can beat the DOJ?

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.
    Discipline, or fire them on what grounds. So far, these officers haven't broken any rules.

    Get rid of the whole lot. Get rid of the cancer.
    You think the resident will act any differently with other officers inthe area?

    Somehow I doubt it.

    Sure they can. Much to your disappointment, people still have rights in this country.

    Should everybody that supported Brown be arrested and jailed?

    Why punish one side without the other.

    No verdict has been rendered in this case.

    Is it only acceptable to support a black person but not a white person?

    Certainly, the can. When did they US Justice Department gain the authority to do so?

    And as an aside, as I've noted above, this is in my view a union display of solidarity with a fellow officer. The police union here in Toronto frequently uses tweaks to their assigned uniform as a means of "job action" when upset about some initiative, or negotiations, or treatment of an officer. Sometimes they wear union baseball caps instead of their mandated hats, etc.

    Surely, you're not against union activism, are you?

    Why would they listen to what they have to say?


    To avoid serious problems.

    Oh bull****, they aren't fighting racism there but encouraging it. The DOJ under Holder and Obama is more obstructive than constructive. It's okay to break the law if you are a certain color, after all, you are owed. It's okay to loot and riot, that's all the fault of those mean old racist police. And it not okay for the police to support each other. That's this DOJ. Man I so regret voting for Obama the first time.
