Michael Brown Shooting: Studies Show Racial Bias in Police Decisions | The New Republic
Racism is alive and well in America. It is alive and well in most of its institutions, including the police. Racial bias amongst various suburban St Louis police departments was also widely known before any of us ever heard of Ferguson. This, as well as all of the other issues I have documents, is why there was a rush to judgement to think the Ferguson shooting had racial overtones.

I am sorry, you and many of the other posters on this board refuse to look at facts and even consider the obvious conclusion. Instead, you come up with the most absurd explanations for these facts because you don't want to admit the obvious conclusion (much less consider it). You offer up some the the most absurd explanations for this trends which reminds most rational thinkers of "...officer, I swear, the tree came out of no where and jumped in front of my care...." And, once again, your posts are so obviously devoid of any rational argument or third-party support because of the need to cling to your erroneous impressions.
Many of us know all too well ".... what you are saying..." Some of us, however, don't think you do.
