    This is what I wanted to discuss.

    I didn't think the Grand Jury would indite; neither the circumstances surrounding the shooting nor the evidence apparently was enough to call for a murder trial. The decisions made by authorities leading up to reporting of the Grand Jury's decision is what I found troubling.

    I can understand closing calling out the National Guard, closing schools and businesses ahead potential violence considering all the rioting and looting that had happened weeks ago in Ferguson, MO, but reading the verdict at night? When you have far less of an opportunity to identify the trouble makers!?! IMO, this was a set-up, the conditions staged to get a specific outcome: RIOTING!

    It's true that people are responsible for their own actions. So, regardless of what the authorities did it was up to the people to maintain calm and respect for the law and other people's property, but knowing that this Grand Jury decision was not going to be accepted by either side no matter what the decision turned out to be, why read the verdict at night? Authorities are saying it was to protect businesses and business owner's interests, but I don't think that had anything to do with it. It's the psychology of it all - under the ripe conditions people will fall to their lowest animal instinct - chaos and disorder, self-serving interest. No one can deny that the conditions weren't ripe for rioting to ensue once that verdict was read.

While the blacks see injustice the non-blacks see lawlessness so it is a perpetual, self-feeding disgust.

    And as it seems the "eye witness accounts" were also pure fiction. It wasn't "conservative media" (btw just say fox) eating it up. You know the left was eating up the narrative too. Remember the pictures of that sweet innocent Michael brown?

    Please don't pretend like this is a "conservative v democrat" issue. It isn't. The media has been a joke handling this entire thing.

    I have to agree. Every time I saw that picture of a young Michael Brown wearing the headphones I kept asking myself, "Why don't they show a picture of Michael Brown as he really appears today? Older, bigger, not so innocent looking...

    The answer was obvious...then they wouldn't get the sympathy of the viewers believing a child was killed instead of a young adult Black male.

    I hate what has happened here with this police shooting. It turns my stomach not just because someone has lost a life or that someone's life has forever been altered, but because the people have been played on both ends.

    In the older pic, he was white? And why did you capitalize 'black'; is that very important?

    Irrelevant on all points. Still, I capitalize the race or ethnicity of people; it's my writing style. I'd capitalize White just as easily as I would Asian, Chinese or even White when referring to a people. What's your point?

    Well, my first point is that you appear to claim that in the early pics of Brown he was a white person. Otherwise, your "Black" is superfluous yet, strangely, emphasized.

    My second point is that while Chinese should be capitalized, black should not and nor should white. Don't you think that demonstrates an unhealthy level of obsession about race?

    Remember how white folks rioted when OJ was acquitted? Neither do I.
