    I'm sure once those racist cops are purged, we will also see a dramatic drop in those statistics too, because from what I hear the DOJ report said, it's the way it is because of these racist cops. Correct?

    There are well behaved police all over the country, and from all different races. All that needs to happen is for departments to purge those that aren't.

    The Sarah Palin thing is pretty much ridiculous, and was at the time. It's invocation is mostly useful in that it demonstrates the intellectual unseriousness of the speaker.

    "Rhetoric about Muslims" is a more serious issue, but similarly non-problematic. Anti-Semitism is far more prevalent in this country, and anti-Islamic sentiment is fairly low.

    Re: 2 Officers Are Shot Outside Ferguson Police Station

    Unless I am mistaken, the most damning revelation to come out of Holder's report was that the Ferguson police department was basically "fund raising" by excessively ticketing people for various minor violations of the law and this practice was disproportionately effecting blacks. Makes perfect sense if the practice was being carried out in predominately black neighborhoods, I guess. If this really was happening I can understand why the residents would be upset.

    I think Holder put himself in a very bad position right out of the gates by some of his statements which seemed to indict the officer who shot Micheal Brown before all of the facts were known. He gave the appearance not of someone who was interested in justice, but of someone rushing to judgement for the purposes of furthering an agenda. He created that perception of himself so now it is very easy for people to question his motives for including what basically amounts to an indictment of the Ferguson Police Department for activities completely unrelated to the original event. I have to admit that it does seem odd to read about excessive citations in a report that was supposed to be about a shooting...

    No. People will commit crimes whether or not there are racist cops on the force. But that's no reason to retain racist cops on the force.

    Oops he isn't the Ferguson Chief talking, he's the St. Louis County chief.

    I don't think that this report was intended to incite violence, more likely for the political value of changing the party/personnel in control. How many DOJ "racism" reports are issued for our many areas now controlled by the "correct" (demorat) party? Just as code pink largely shut up soon after Obama became the CinC one can see that the "outrage" has curiously political undertones.

    I don't recall anyone saying that racists should be retained on forces. Or sexists. Or Catholic haters. Or Muslim haters. Or cops who indiscriminately shoot stray dogs. Or cops who trade sex for letting hookers off.

    But if the problems in Ferguson are tied to these racist cops, then it's incumbent upon the DOJ to remove them from Ferguson so the problems that they cause will go away. And presumably the problems that they cause will go away. That's what happens when you remove the root cause from anything.

    Until a community that believes itself wronged sees justice exacted upon the wrong-doers, this is going to keep happening. It is going to be a loooooong summer until somebody is thrown into the volcano. The longer it draws out, the more somebodies will be needed to appease the gods.
    If I blow the conch and they don't come back; then we've had it. We shan't keep the fire going. We'll be like animals. We'll never be rescued.

    Re: 2 Officers Are Shot Outside Ferguson Police Station

    Update:

    Two officers were shot in front of the Ferguson Police Department early Thursday, authorities said, as demonstrators gathered after the city's police chief resigned in the wake of a scathing Justice Department report alleging bias in the police department and court. A 32-year-old officer from nearby Webster Groves was shot in the face and a 41-year-old officer from St. Louis County was shot in the shoulder, St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said at a news conference. Both were taken to a hospital, where Belmar said they were conscious. He said he did not have further details about their conditions but described their injuries as "serious."

    Someone at the scene, unseen and unidentified in the video, says: "Acknowledgement nine months ago would have kept that from happening."

    The acting head of the Justice Department's civil rights division released a statement saying the U.S. government remains committed to reaching a "court-enforceable agreement" to address Ferguson's "unconstitutional practices," regardless of who's in charge of the city......snip~

    Does that even look Right.....Police all gunned up and in defense around a Police Station? Why was this allowed to keep being pushed to this point, again? Those are Black, White and even a couple of Latino Cops are out there. Yet people aren't discriminating when it comes to the Badge, huh?
