    What are you trying to say? Do you agree that it was a combined problem of the police force, a few civilians, and potentially other forces as well?

    Exactly the same? Of course not. But the media didn't make people shoot at police, the media didn't set buildings and cars on fire, the media didn't loot buildings, the media didn't throw things at police. Those people who did do that aren't somehow bereft of any kind of blame or shouldn't have finger pointed at them simply because the media enflamed things. The media, sadly, is also a give and take type of thing...they can help enflame things, but people have to buy in and help exacerbate it for it to actually have any impact, and the cycle just continues agin and again.

    I'm not saying that only one side is worthy of having fingers pointed at them...that's you. I'm saying that the news coverage on this absolutely deserves criticism, but it doesn't excuse those that are making their own conscious decisions to do wrongful actions.
    And that right there is the George W. Bush defense. "I didn't pull the trigger, or throw the molotov (or whatever they were that started tonight's literal fires), so I am completely innocent in this matter." Bullcrap the media is innocent. They. Agitated. Ferguson. Period.

    I've seen two of the largest riots in America, the Watts Riot in 1965 and the riots in L.A. in 1992. Why do they always burn down their own neighborhoods and then complain why nobody wants to open a business in their neighborhoods after the looting and arson ?

    If people riot, people riot. It shouldn't be made into a matter of "black people riot and white people don't," because I have seen mostly white rioters many times. The fact is, rioters riot. It's shouldn't be a racial issue of stereotyping.

    Speaking of which. The complacency from the libertarians on this case is astounding. I thought they supported limited government? Is their idea of "limited government" shooting unarmed civilians, letting their officers off the hook, and then suppressing dissenting voices? Hell, even Alex Jones, the fanatical libertarian conspiracy theorist, doesn't support what the Ferguson cops are doing!
    See, this is the problem with people who don't know what Libertarians are for. They assume that when we say "limited government" we mean "no government". When the police are being shot at, which they were, then the Police need to step up to not only protect themselves but others in the crowd.

    You don't get it. *How* the media chooses to report makes a difference. They should have a social obligation to report in an intelligent, fair, and non-inciting manner. But because of ratings, ratings, ratings, if it bleeds, it leads.

    I'm curious, what percentage of the responsibility do you put on the media? 10%? 20%?

    What in the world are you even reading?

    Where did I say the media is innocent?

    I FLAT OUT STATED that the media deserves criticism and is guilty of enflaming things. I'm simply saying the don't deserve singular criticism. And their wrong doing doesn't excuse other peoples wrong doing like you're suggesting.

    I don't know in what better way you could demonstrate that the system used for civilians and that used for police officers is not the same.

    Too bad police helicopters aren't able to be used.
    But that's what happens when an idiotic prosecutor decides to announce this GJ decision late at night.
    With no slight on the way he has handled this all along.

    Giving riotous thugs an opportunity to loot and destroy under the cover of darkness is one of the dumbest things I've ever seen .
