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
Obama is about to give a statement.
Moderator's Warning: 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.
Stop it or take it to another thread
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
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 .

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

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.

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.
