    Of course Wilson was responsible for the death of Michael Brown Wilson never denied that, would you please post the live footage of the act of the shooting if you have it? All accounts I read make it look justified

    By the way we don't have to say alleged Michael Brown is dead so he won't suffer from us defaming his character that video clearly shows Michael Brown stealing the cigarillos okay it's not alleged he did do it

    Moderator's Warning:
    Ferguson LIVE announcement video feed links here [W:60, 267]I'm giving you three the benefit of the doubt here that you didn't see my last warning. Now you're quoted so you damn well should.

    This topic is not about Fox News.

    I'm very pleased that a DM and a mod posted in this thread on the actual topic, what with all the petty nonsense they have to deal with across the board.
    And I don't exclude myself from that either.
    All posters should always read what these people say and how they say it, especially on these contentious issues .

    I don't know, to be honest, don't really care to defend FoxNews, or MSNBC or CNN. Pretty much think they're all snakeoil salesmen. Just don't think we'd get an accurate picture of race in America from any of them no matter how much they rainbowed the panel.

    And dang it, I didn't see talk of news critters was off the table. I'll stop immediately.

    Yeah you would think that out of the 20 or 30 minority Republicans out there, that they could have brought in one of them.

    I never did understand why this became such a big thing. There are so, so many worse examples of police acting in a manner that I think is likely criminal or deeply wrong. Why this was escalated I can only guess was because of the possibly erroneous witness testimony and the media using it as a ratings tool.

    After I found out that Brown had robbed a store and jumped in a cop car and went for the gun... I really didn't care after that.
    The case was murky and disconcerting on the surface. Whether the grand jury's set-up and decision-making rationale was "correct" is another matter entirely. Yet another issue is how groups of people did not separate their pre-conceived notions from the specifics of the case.

    Whites and conservatives tended to too readily embrace Wilson's story that Brown was out to harm him and many minorities and liberals likewise too readily jumped to the conclusion that Brown was unjustly killed. Each did it because they analyze these things from a socio-racial perspective, irrespective of access to information from the case or the specifics of the case.

    Then on top of all of that, it's not as if the community management by this police department has been positive. They are largely seen as an alien presence by the community; absent in the communities that distrust them and lacking in racial polarity with community demographics. Many aspects surrounding the handling of the legal case are indeed worthy of critique.

    Tonight, the biggest problem I had with this press conference was the complaints toward the traditional media and social media tools. It was unnecessarily distracting from the particulars of the case and will only enflame how millions of people perceive what happened during these proceedings. A reality is you don't trash the media, because they will fight back and it will filter down to the public in an unintentioned manner.

    Re: Ferguson LIVE announcement video feed links here [W:60]

    The fact of the matter is that Missouri law allows police officers tremendous leeway in using deadly force. There was no need under the law that Wilson to be in fear for his life...He could have shot Micheal in the back while Micheal was fleeing.

    Missouri law allows a police officer to use deadly force to stop a person from fleeing apprehension even it the officer only suspects the person may have committed a crime. That basically is anybody.

    That the person is running away, turning to surrender, or running towards, or standing with his hands up does not matter.

    After the altercation at the police vehicle...once Micheal ran away...under Missouri law...he was a dead man.
