    Careful. When I said that earlier today, it caused a poster to start a barrage of hyper hysterical posts.

    7 emails in 7 years....and the most recent being 2011. Let's see some from 2015. Hell, 2014 would work. And if 7 emails in 7 years is enough to tell this country everything needed to condemn this entire force as being corrupt, racist people, I wonder what we would have seen in the many thousands of emails that a certain Secretary of State deleted and is holding captive in her server.

    I'm sure there are bad seeds in the police force. I'm sure there are bad seeds in my town's police force. But the notion that the root cause of the crime in Ferguson is the PD, and they're sharing 7 emails as an example of that....and people are just bobbing their heads in agreement....damn mystifying.

    I can't tell you. I don't live there, and I'm not the one declaring that the current police force is terrible and has to go. The local politicians there are all Democrats. Maybe they can say.

    Re: 2 Officers Are Shot Outside Ferguson Police Station

    The thing we're seeing here isn't some pathetic display of partisan politics (though this thread certainly is a display of that), but of an immense problem that has existed for decades now and is beginning to explode. The way we use our police, the way we exercise government force against the rights and liberties of the citizens, is being questioned. We've already seen the reports showing that police departments are used as city fundraisers, and we know from incident after incident the willingness of government to use deadly force against its own people.

    What we need is to return to sense and sensibility. Government is necessary, policing is necessary, we cannot resort to more violence and killing of our own. But we need to get government force into proper proportion and we need to start investigating more reliable less-than-lethal weapons that our police can use against civilians.

    The total goal should be a higher level of mutual respect and courtesy.

    Yes, that was an absolute disgrace, doing that to our country as President. One of the lowest points ever for the office.

    Obama talked about Ferguson at the UN? If i knew that, I forgot about it. What was the reason he did that?

    Liberals do that stuff. They knew that Wilson's was a good-shoot long before they paraded the Browns in front of the UN. But, they did it anyway. Pushing big bad white people narrative, damn the evidence, is like a disease with them.

    To a swathe of society it appeared as if Ferguson police officers got away with murder. Perhaps someone else thought they could do the same. Violence breeds violence.

    Then that " swathe of society " is filled with a bunch of morons if they still think Michael Brown was murdered with his " hands up " in surrender.

    I agree, and the best way to change minds is to set an example. I have been saying in one way or another since my first post that the focus needs to be the fix and it appears a growing number of people agree. Arguing the same old "...the right is" and "...lefties this", which we all enjoy, don't get me wrong, but are pointless and irrelevant here.

    We've had riots too. Not long ago millions of $ worth of damage was done in fires and looting because a band of spoiled privileged kids couldn't accept the outcome of game seven of the Stanley cup......

    There was some bleating that "the police should have...." and "...they shouldn't have allowed street parties" but it faded when the horror of what had happened and how the reputation of our "world class city" status had been badly bruised. The the same Police Chief who was the bad guy for being too lax, Chief Constable Jim Chew, appealed to the public to go on line and view the hundreds of videos and pictures they had of the rioters so they could identify them and bring them to justice.

    That is not to brag, but offer an example of humility instead instead of blame, and how to fix what's broken. A dysfunction family argues over the same problems again and again, a 'normal' family argues about one problem after another.....
