    Have you ever filled out a police report? It takes a few minutes. Protesters can easily show up before you've literally finished writing your statement; especially since they're super focused on protesting while you're not very focused at all on writing a report, having just shot a man.

    This happened when I was asleep, a thousand miles from where I am. I don't know enough to talk about it. I'm sure eventually details will come out. All I know at this point is that it happened. I would suggest that everyone wait to discover the how and why and not say things like, just because the cops said something, I don't trust them. That's foolish.

    I predict Al Sharpton will be speaking by the end of the day, and we'll see riots soon thereafter.

    According to your link the protesters threw fireworks at the police. That's what we see in the video.

    Throwing fireworks at a gas station sounds like a legal, safe and sane way of protesting.

    Mornin Jerry. Reuters reported what the local station had reported.

    Images and video footage showed a flash, a loud bang and smoke filling an area near the gas pumps, but it was not clear whether they were caused by bystanders or the police. Local broadcaster KSDK reported people hurled rocks and bricks toward police......snip~

    Guns should be " banned " ???

    Are you serious ? So take away every law abiding Americans right to slf defense because you're gullible enough to buy into all of this " hands up don't shoot " nonsense ?

    Yes guns should be banned, starting with handguns and readily concealed weapons. Has nothing to do with Hands Up, Don't Shoot. It has to do with the death toll.

    3. I support these protests wholeheartedly and while I can understand why some people would "taunt" officers (built up anger and frustration), it bothers me. I don't think that that is the way to express one's frustration.
    Do you support protesting anything that involves police use of deadly force or only if the "victim" is black? Never mind any investigation at all just get out there and protest ASAP becuase the "vicitm's" mother says he was a good boy and was (somewhere else?) with his girlfriend at the time. I suspect that there is at least surveillance video at that market/gas station and likely quite a few folks were present at that hour of the evening.

    Kudos to this headline :Officer in Missouri shot, killed man who pulled gun It is all we need to know until all the facts are in. Stop making it into another black vs white nonsense. Stop vilifying.
    Just stop it. This holier than thou attitude is almost too much to take. We aren't cops being called into these situations.
