    Since when is the defense of a fellow union member an act of racism?

    Reason has no place in conversations about race for a lot of people, unfortunately.
    Can you point out where in your OP it indicates that only white police officers are wearing these bands? Are you claiming that black officers on the Ferguson PD aren't wearing the bands? If that's the case, it would have a tinge of race to it - if not, if all officers are wearing them, your comments about race and others comments about race are a crock.

    Sorry, I don't think in terms of race - never have, never will - you made the claim so I expect you'd be able to back it up, presuming you're not too embarrassed to try.

    You don't live in Ferguson, Missouri so you have no idea what the black people who live there have put up with for many years.

    Why would you ban them?

    To keep tensions down, and preset a professional image. You can wear whatever you want off duty, on department time officers should not be presenting personal opinions in a way likely to indicate dept support of said opinions

    So, the only way to keep tensions down, is for the officers to admit thst Wilson is guilty of a crime? Give in to the rioters?
