    If they are killing people before justice is even served, then the police have become judge, jury and executioner. It's very wrong, and the system needs reform.

    Problem is, the system almost always takes the side of police officers. It's the blue line that they all tow. Sick.
    You had better arm up.

    The Grand Jury reviewed all of the evidence and determined there was insufficient evidence of a crime to charge anyone.

    But seriously, this was the decision of a group of people who were the Grand Jurors. Had nothing to do with the Mayor or the President or the Justice Department.

    I'm shocked by the no-bill, too, but let's not try to blame people who had nothing to do with it.
    Exorbitant taxes on tobacco is the fault of the grand jury? Selective enforcement of various laws which gives people the impression that "acceptable" crimes won't be punished is the fault of the grand jury?

    Wel, I don't agree with that being an excuse, but the man DID have health problems. He had asthma. Plus you could look at him and see he was unhealthy. He was morbidly obese. But because of his bad health, they should've released or let up when he said he couldn't breathe.

    It might have been from the fried chicken Moochelle told him he could eat after voting democrat. He looked morbidly obese to me.

    Why was the guy resisting arrest? Cop should not be indicted for doing his job.

    If the black community wants to picket and riot about something, then do something about the crime in your own neighborhoods.

    Or he shouldn't have resisted arrest. It didn't look like anyone intended to injure him from the edited video I saw. It looked like they were trying to restrain a very large man who was resisting arrest.

    Brown in this thread about Garner?

    Re Brown, there was ample evidence that Brown reached into the police car and assaulted the policeman. There is also ample evidence that Brown did NOT have his hands up when shot; witnesses state he was advancing quickly toward the officer, with at least one hand at his waist belt area and the other hand either around his belt area or down somewhere else, but not up in the air. This is when Wilson shot....to stop him. Brown was shot in the front. Remember the reports by so-called witnesses (not under oath) at first, that Brown had been shot six times in the back? Lies.

    He wasn't choked to death. The autopsy shows there was no damage to his windpipe.
