    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.
    And, to date, none of these protestatards have said what changes they want.

    It would be interesting if someone researched the protesters to see how much they really know about the case. I would speculate that most have not read the GJ reports.
    They know only what some talking head told them.

    Don't know what country you live in but last I knew in the US a person is considered an adult at the age of 18. Doesn't matter if the person is black, white, Arab or any other race out there. I do think that its cute that so many that protest his shooting loves to imply that he was just a kid and find all kinds of ways to imply that. Such as your rhetoric here in questioning when a person is considered an adult.

    If you're referring to that kid that was shot by the cop because the kid had a toy gun and when told to raise his hands and instead went for the gun...kid was an idiot. A Darwin Award type idiot. When a cop has a gun on trained in your direction the last thing you do is go for something that looks like a gun. And if I recall correctly that toy gun had had the orange tip taken off of it and as such looked real.

    So? That's his opinion and he's entitled to it. I have no problem with people voicing their opinions. I do have a problem with mobs that burn stores, cars, interfere with private property businesses all because a punk decided that it'd be a fine idea to rob a store and hit a cop and go for that same cops gun. The people that support that idiot are imo idiots themselves for supporting that thug.

    What's REALLY stupid about all this is that they are doing all this crap to people that not only do not have a say in how cops conduct their business and how the courts are but have also done absolutely freaking NOTHING to them in any way shape or form. If you're mad at someone you don't go after the 2 year old sitting next to the person that you're mad at. You go after the person that you're mad at.

    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.
    You missed the point and probably due to lack of knowledge in who these groups behind the protesting are. They are social justice and left-wing activists which include Occupy members are using the Ferguson's grand jury's decision to not indict officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown to condemn capitalism.

    Like Obama's buddy Rahm Emanuel, current mayor of Chicago once stated "never let a good crisis go to waste", these activist groups are squeezing it for all they can get.

    First you had the activists like the Black Panthers, ambulance chasers like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, and Nation of Islam ratcheting up the violence in the name of "social justice" attacking our institution of law enforcement using race baiting. Now you have leftist groups doing the same only this time the institution they are trying to bring down is Capitalism.

    These people were protesting on private property in mob mentality laying down on store floors keeping people from doing their shopping. They all deserved to be hauled away.

    Freedom to assemble doesn't mean being able to break the law, at least to rational people. Closing malls, stopping the flow of traffic, no big deal. Just like attacking a police officer I guess.

    Peaceful demonstrations?

    Protests continued in Ferguson during the night leading to the arrests of 15 people for disturbing the peace and impeding flow of traffic. Two others were arrested with resisting arrest and the other with assault.
    "We want to really let the world know that it is no longer business as usual," Chenjerai Kumanyika, an assistant professor at Clemson University in South Carolina, said at a rally at a Wal-Mart in Manchester, another St. Louis suburb.
    The assistant professor should have probably waited until becoming a full professor to do something like this; you know, the tenure thing.

    Guess you didn't know that malls are private property and you have no right to assemblage there without permission from the owners. The mall is no place to protest. Not to mention they forced their way into private property.

    Physical evidence doesn't lie and can't be accused of bias, like racism. In this case the physical evidence lines up with Wilson's story.

    No it doesn't. It paints him as a violent, aggressive thug. No more superhuman or demonic than any other.

    Nimby isn't a fan of objective data, apparently. Perhaps he prefers narratives.
