    So... anyone have an over/under bet on how quickly there will be riots in Ferguson (and elsewhere?)

    Either way isn't the situation so ****ed that somebody will blow?

    If he skates, there's going to be bad feelings in one camp, and if he's charged, well.....?

    Why is nothing ever resolved when it come to race and crime,. I mean even OJ is still and issue divided almost exclusively along racial lines, the Florida stand your ground shooting the same...

    Is it because the judicial system seems to be ****ed or because simply no one trusts anyone anymore?

    Oh great, an announcement on a decision being made, another announcement on what that decision is later....Hey, maybe we can break the record for the amount of incremental threads posted on one day.....

    On issue I mean seriously, don't these people know that doing it like this is just building the anticipation, and will make the reaction worse?

    delaying the announcement means he's probably not indicted.

    Seems that Is the intention.

    Oh, why is it we make such a big deal about the ambiguous cases when there are enough cut and dry cases of police abuse of power?

    Yup..

    If anyone here lives in Houston, steer clear of 288 right around the Dome area.

    When Zimmerman was let off " protesters " blocked it off and assaulted people in their vehicles.

    I dunno.. I recall that the activists were asking (and the authorities originally agreed) for 2 days notice.. That they are getting less may indicate otherwise. Folly to try to guess either way, I guess.
