    Dog gone shame we can't do like we did in the military. Anyone found being a racist was discharged, kick out regardless of race, color, creed or whatever. So how do you discharge a racist from the civilian world?
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Do you think this is still a major factor in American society or is this mostly the media? Are the majority of Americans moved by these events or indifferent?

    I always admired Trayvon's parents. Soon after the trial, they went to the media and said they forgave Zimmerman.

    That's incredible IMO. That takes a lot of strength, and I admired it.

    I may relate a little more to the stepfather. I am not saying I would publicly say the words he did, because I would have serious moral issues with feeling I incited violence. I just know that I don't easily forgive people when I am deeply hurt. It usually takes a lot of time for me to forgive. I relate to his anger. Also, I can't imagine what it would be like to loose a child and feel your child didn't get justice (I say that because that's exactly how the parent's view the situation).

    This man said his words out of suffering, and I hope he gets help. If not, this amount of anger and grief can take a serious toll on him.

    I am not sure I agree that he should be punished. The man can't be in his right mind... The rioters were probably going to riot regardless of his statement.

    Interesting. You admire something they never did?
    The reports certainly indicated that it was a possibility they might be able to eventually forgive as they clearly indicated that "healing takes time".
    So are you making things up to admire, or do you have a link to them actually saying they actually forgave him?

    'Burn this bitch down'.

    Not a man of peace I am guessing.

    We the people... We should gather in Ferguson and demand justice. If Mike Brown's father isn't indicted for inciting a riot and conspiracy to commit arson, we will riot and burn the place down... oh wait...
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    If we're talking about legalities then maybe shooting a thief could be justified in the legal system, but ethically? Something is wrong in the U.S. when petty crime is dealt with by homicide.

    But... the sanctity of life in our country no longer applies, especially in poorer areas.
    MB wasn't shot because he strong arm robbed the store dude...He was shot because he assaulted an officer, tried to take his gun, then when directed to stop and give up, he turned and charged the officer he just assaulted...By saying that he was shot for anything less than that is a lie.

    "Michael Brown's stepfather at rally: 'Burn this bitch down!'"

    I think we can assume he has destroyed any opportunity to go to work for a public relations firm.

    LOL... if I had a link of his mother telling the media she forgave Zimmerman, you'd argue, THAT'S NOT WHAT SHE SAID.

    But he can reflect for the rest of his life on his particular contribution here. What a model of maturity and self-restraint.
