    We don't know if Wilson was attacked. We know that he said he was attacked.

    A red light light isn't a form of violence unless it was intentionally programmed to harass people. Intentionally shutting down the subways and preventing people from going home for two hours (which has happened in my town) is violence that harms innocent people. Note that I said "Residual, unintended effects from a large protest (such as traffic backups) are not immoral.."

    Much like the riots of the 1960's, people are making a statement now, they're fed up with the biased legal system, the establishment.
    Yes, because nothing says you are concerned about a "broken" justice system, like destroying personal property and stealing from the very people you claim to care about. Especially concerning a case where the justice system appears to have worked.

    Just so we're clear. You believe destroying the personal property of an innocent bystander is the best way to be heard? Yes, or no.

    People have a "constitutional right" to sucker punch a cop and go for his gun? What in the actual ****?

    Forensic evidence, and eyewitness testimony corroborates officer Wilson's story. Why do you have a problem with that?

    And the witnesses, the actual witnesses, not the liars who were later found to be lying, all of them said he was attacked by Brown.

    MLK wanted people judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin. The ferguson protesters are doing anything but that. Its particularly ironic that the anti-wilson group INSTANTLY knew he was guilty because he was white. If this cop was black we would have never heard of the case. Hard to take people seriously when they themselves are being racist like that. Spare me your lefty diatribe.

    You don't favor the dismantling of anti-black power structures. OK.
    Don't work out, work in.

    I reject the notion that they largely exist in govt. And none of that makes prejudging a cop based on his skin color ok.
