    So they shouldn't have announced Wilson off the hook or investigated a possible corrupt police department and then when they found it was in fact corrupt, just sweep it under the rug? Did you read the report and do you agree with how the police department operated?

    I see ... I haven't been blaming Holder for everything though he certainly hasn't helped much in the race arena. I see you are now moving away from the moronic comparison with Giffords which was my point that not all situations are the same and forming different opinions based on different situations is reasonable. I can't help how you formed your opinion of hypocrisy but not all people base their opinions solely on ideology and defense of their political views. Sometimes people will go against the grain if it's the right thing to do or say --- you call that hypocrisy, I call it being reasonable.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Hmmm.....without the protest, the people, or the emotions, the cops would not have been shot.

    No, I will show my point and not discuss your moving the goal lines. Not all situations, shootings, incidents are the same and therefore must be judged on their own merits, not a blanket ideological spew. Get it?

    Neat. I didn't blame Holder for this.

    I know you think I'm a partisan and a crazy conservative, and you constantly follow me around the board calling me a right winger and a partisan and a conservative and Fox News watcher and all that, even imagining posts I made a year before I ever joined here. I'm an animal rights activist, pro-SSM, pro-choice, non-religious moderate, which anyone who actually reads my posts knows, meaning that I'm not the right wing nut you fantasize that I am. You have the wrong target in your crosshairs. And it's boring.

    So you're purposely misunderstanding my post? I said the timing was the issue.

    While I don't blame Holder for this crime, he certainly hasn't done anything productive or beneficial regarding the social climate around Ferguson.

    Why are you defending against these things, and from HIM of all people? He's a leftwinger, he's going to hate those things no matter what. I wouldn't give him the satisfaction.

    To me, these are not police, they are legalized thugs. In reading the report itself, not the biased reporting in the US media I see shame, this has been festering for decades, with cover ups and armed suppression of eye witnesses, videos and on and on.

    Who's to blame?

    Everyone.

    Now, if I may, I need to take a second shower and think about how the deaths of people in the US are secondary to wining arguments


    Looks like Town Officials are resigning. Including those that weren't accused of racism.

    Yet we have a cop shot in the face from another town and a County Sherriff......who wears a different colored Uniform than those of Ferguson. Protests going on at 2am in the morning.

    Even people out using a barbecue.


    How much do you think Sharpton and the Press should take the Blame.....with the racist Cops, and most especially.....Eric Holder.
