    Good, this is the next level to raise awareness of how cops have become lawless and brutal themselves.

    Then, a handful of around 15 protesters were arrested, so much for freedom to assemble, now they're trampling on constitutional rights, trying to tamp down peaceful demonstrations, how despicable.
    What a load of crap. From your own article...

    Monday night's announcement that Wilson, who is white, wouldn't be indicted for fatally shooting Brown, who was black, prompted violent protests that resulted in about a dozen buildings and some cars being burned. Dozens of people were arrested
    A dozen buildings and some cars being burned is peaceful?

    Or perhaps you're talking about the protesters that laid down on the floor of the stores? The Galleria Malls in Richmond Heights? Or the West County Mall in Des Peres? Sorry, according to your article none of those people were arrested. Although at least some of them probably should have been considering they were on private property, not public.

    Or are you talking about the people that chained themselves to trains for the train service from Oakland to San Francisco? You know, the train service that many people depend on in order to get home from work or to go to work? Which by the by is also private property. Not to mention all the safety issues of chaining yourself to a TRAIN.

    Or do you really call chaining doors to the Pacific Place Shopping Center in Seattle peaceful? God knows what the people inside of that building would have done had one of them protestors set the place on fire like they did the buildings in Ferguson.

    But hey! Its all justified right? After all, a white cop shot a black adult. All manners of vandalism and rioting and trespassing and other illegal actions are quite acceptable just because of that one simple fact. All other facts are not relevant and should just be ignored by all those righteous "peaceful protesters"....Right?

    Its interesting how so many of the lefts statements come with a threat of violence.
    But, had the cop used his head and not escalated the situation, there might have been a different outcome. Wilson should have been employed as a security guard, and not a duly sworn police officer.

    But, getting back to the topic here, when the cops and justice system begin trampling on first amendment rights, that's going a bit too far, and I'm sure right wing people who adamantly support their second amendment rights can appreciate that.

    No BUT here, he acted appropriately. People dont get to sucker punch cops, pull the cops gun and try to shoot them, and then blame the outcome on the cop.

    Just like all the violence in ferguson by the rioters isn't justified.

    Your sense of right and wrong is so warped you can't seem to understand this.

    Hey, read the story, this is about peaceful protesters shutting down malls and demonstrating at the Ferguson PD, this happened on black Friday, yesterday, you know. No cars or buildings were torched, get with it here, you're reliving what happened after the immediate grand jury decision! Have another cup of coffee, come back and read the linked article. Then post something about that topic, you of all people should know your rant is way off.

    Civil rights were largely pushed by republicans, the left lost the vietnam war for its own politics (fighting fellow commies), and even if you were correct, its not a green light for this. If you call this an accomplishment, you should review your own belief system.

    And you dont TAKE or DEMAND, you convince. I realize as a lefty you probably have no idea what this means.

    Are you not in favor of a person's constitutional rights? I think your sense of right v wrong is severely flawed, now, say something about the protesters shutting down the malls, you know, the topic of the thread?

    Hate to break it to you but no cop is not going to use deadly force when faced with potentially deadly force. Such as a criminal going for the cops gun. Anyone that thinks otherwise don't know jack from jill.

    I'm all for the 1st Amendment. However that 1st Amendment does not apply to anyone that causes harm to a person or their property or violates another persons rights. Your right to protest does not supersede my right to not get my car/business burned down or my right to tell you to get the heck off my property.

    You don't get it, which is typical of a righty. People demand change, they don't sit around and wait for it. You evidently know nothing about past history, otherwise, you would know citizens just don't sit around wishing and hoping, citizens demand change. I suppose if you want to convince a lawmaker of something, you would carry to them a box of chocolates, a bouquet of flowers, and a handful of cash to lobby with? isn't that what right wing people do?

    Nothing was burnt last night. Evidently, some people think it's okay to trample on first amendment constitutional rights. I'll repeat, there are no daily reports today of anything being torched yesterday.

    You just can't help yourself can you, you need to keep bringing cop/gun/punch and other stuff into this topic.
