    Instead of seeking justice, as he is constitutionally and ethically required to do, Holder has politicized the Department beyond recognition. Instead of enforcing the rule of law and following legal precedent, he has ignored and twisted the law to suit his president. And no one is holding Holder accountable.
    Ok. Well if your not going to read the report, I have nothing further to say to you.

    Also, they know the head of the Black Panthers was there and calling for violence if necessary as he put it. Which was when this all started up with Wilson.
    So maybe the Panthers have a provocateur out there.

And, the two officers that were shot have nothing to do with the racism within the FPD as documented in the report that you won't even read and therefore leaves you arguing from a point of ignorance.
    How would you know, you don't seem to read your own posts. Do you recall posting that officers will encounter no problem as long as they treat everyone with respect? Do I really have to go back and requote the nonsense you believe just because you don't grasp what you're saying here?

    And if you're now saying (read YOUR post quoted above) the shooting of the officers had nothing to do with the racism supposedly documented in the report - then why the hell do you keep bringing up the report in this thread about the shooting of two officers?

    I have not seen where this shooting had nothing to do with the corruption, not just racism documented in the report. I would be surprised, that without suspects, if anyone was ruling that out, especially since the corruption goes so deep and back so far. This started years ago, Wilson was the match to the powder keg

    All should be looking to understand what the **** is going on, and that report will open yours, likely more than what you want. It is key to the riots of last summer, and good reason [not justification] why the shooting took place.

    Living in a safe suburb or environment, no one can hope to understand this, it is alien to us. Read that report...all of it, it's findings and conclusions and then let's see if you still see this as just another racism allegation
    I lived in St. Louis for three years while I was in law school. I had a girlfriend who lived in the next little town down the road from Ferguson. I drove quite a lot around greater St. Louis, and one of the apartments I lived in was in a neighborhood that was at least half black. I've had enough personal contact with small municipal governments, including their cops, to have a good feel for how they operate. I worked in an office here with a guy who had defended all sorts of police shooting cases for the L.A. City Attorney's office, and through him I met and talked with quite a few cops and had quite a few drinks with them. I know very well they're not all angels, just as I know small town government is often not a model of propriety.

    I'm sure you can find cops all over the U.S. who don't much like blacks or don't like some other group. In some places, and Ferguson is probably one of them, the very fact much of the population is black means that most of the criminals--robbers, rapists, drug dealers, child-and-wife beaters, etc.--police have to deal with are black. It would be hard to keep a poor impression of blacks from creeping into your mind under those circumstances--I imagine a cop would have to keep reminding himself of how many nice, decent black people he also encountered in his daily routine.

    It would not surprise me at all to learn that cops in a small town like that are not the best, or that they sometimes break the law themselves. Not every police force in the U.S., let alone in any other country, is superbly trained and efficient, nor has it ever been. But whatever misconduct this report documents, it does not seem to support prosecutions by the Justice Dept. for civil rights violations. I have very little faith in anything that comes out of Mr. Holder's Justice Dept., because I have no faith in him. He is a slimy leftist liar, just like the president he serves.

    It may be a segue to "community organizer" .

    If you are White, or Prosperous, time to leave Ferguson.

    They'll start shooting the press next. So the press will leave too.

    When there is no one left but the out-of-town agitators, the thugs will only have the multi-generational Welfare sloths to loot, and they haven't got much, so the thugs will pull out...

    Leaving.... What?

    Ashes?

    Destitute urban blacks who may get a welfare check, but there is no store in which to spend it, and smoldering ruins to take the household goods home to...


    Good Job protecting the interests of Urban Blacks Democrats!

    Did you watch the video.....hear the shots? Do you think a pistol was used with the range from wherein the police said came from a House which was behind whoever was getting the footage?

    As a student of laws you should know that anecdotal evidence is not valid.

    You have NOT read the report of the experts

    Yeah, it's poor footage. I heard somebody say it was coming from the hill???? Whatever that means.
