    That's important to note because there is no data regarding the racial make-up of those involved in the non-indictment of Police officers. It looks like Police officers are simply less likely to be indicted than regular people.

    that being said, it would be interesting to see if there is a racial connection with Police indictments/non-indictments.
    Yeah, they talked about that on CNN earlier.

    Essentially, while grand juries (specifically at the federal level) often do indict, it's actually quite the opposite in regards to cases against police officers. That's because people generally give SIGNIFICANTLY more leeway to police officers than normal civilians in these situations (and often the LAW gives more leeway to them) because of the realities of having to make split second decisions regarding potential threats to their life, and so often people are far less likely to indict in such cases.

    Sounds like a witch hunt to me.

    Someone shouted the question just as Obama was walking out. I think if he was going to say it, he might as well of said it in the press conference in an effort to try and turn down the volume. Not that I think it would of helped, but if it is a witch hunt, then say it there.

    It's blocked and so is the I-10 in Los Angeles.

    Damned reasonable statement, really sticking to the center of things as much as possible, it seemed like. What I heard of his statement that is.

    Also, you can say that the media has been saying this is gonna happened, but that doesn't mean the idiots should do it. If I say your going to jump of the bridge, I doubt you are dumb enough to go do it. Besides, we knew what they would do because this is what they did before. Didn't take a genius to figure this was going to end badly. Hell even Obama said that some people would do this.
    See above.

    Things are obviously very hectic right now. When things settle in a few days, we have got to have a national conversation about civilian-police interactions. There are some serious issues on both sides that need to be addressed, although I'd rather not comment right now on who's more at fault.

    Once again, I think they should collect all of the statements from this afternoon with persons saying, "I don't know why we are assuming it will be violent!" for public shaming.
