    Perhaps it was a Freudian slip.

    The continuing civil protest of "Hands up, Don't Shoot" has nothing to do with the GJ action or Ferguson in particular.

    Anyone that has a problem with the protests can go kick rocks.
    LOL !!

    Nonsense.

    Yes, " hands up dont shoot " has nothing to do with Ferguson. ...

    Wow

    It is. I'm enjoying reading this thread. The apologists are falling all over themselves. Just wait until January - this ain't nothing. We're going to need a "Wail-O-Meter".

    So what is it protesting then? If it's not suggesting that police officers are shooting people who have their hands raised surrendering, then what is it referring to?

    Ferguson protest: Hakeen Jeffries, Yvette Clarke, Al Green go 'Hands up, don't shoot' on House floor - Washington Times

    Saw this on Morning Joe's show (complete with pictures of the idiots doing it). He's about to boil over. This is day 2 of his rants about the idiots who are perpetuating the lie that the PD shoots people whose hands are raised in surrender.

    Nice. Now our lawmakers are doing this? And this is supposed to help the current situation in Ferguson....how?

    You want to object to the GJ's decision....fine. I get that and while I disagree, I support it. But to see lawmakers intentionally carrying on a lie and implying that the police officers shot Brown while he was in surrender is disgusting. But except for Joe Scarborough and a few right wingers, nobody will call them to task for this.
    The pictures should be used by their opponents in their next election to show them as anti-law enforcement.

    If a law maker can't tell a lie from the truth, then they should not be in office.
