    Yep. I guess it's just a coincidence that nearly everyone of their stances is based in perpetuating prejudice against marginalized groups. It's probably not that they sympathize with racists and endorse discrimination. Nope. They're just good, moral Americans that are unfairly painted by the evil left

    I will be glad to. Ferguson has been a tender box since the people all believed the lie hands up don't shoot and were ready to string Officer Wilson up for the crime. Today many still believe the narrative "hands up don't shoot" because that is what they were told even though the evidence shows differently. With a situation like that, you would think an Atty General if he felt he had reason to believe racism rampant in Ferguson at the police department would have internally addressed the issues rather than send out a report that would fan the flames. He didn't choose to do things that way instead dumped a few more barrels of gasoline on the embers by releasing what several are calling a cherry picked report to paint white cops in Ferguson as rascists. Now we have two cops shot down. What next?

    Except when they come for their guns, and then they'll shoot em like the paper targets at the range their prowess is so great.
    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

    Has anyone heard if they've said what kind of bullet hit these men? It surprised me to hear one of them was shot just under the eye with a rifle from about 125 yards, and yet was treated at the hospital and released. What happened to the other officer is not much less surprising. That bullet entered his shoulder and exited his back, but he too was able to be released after treatment.

    It sounds like the rifle can't have been anything more powerful than a .22 rimfire--if so, it's sort of an odd choice as used. I've heard they were often used by hit men in Mafia killings because the noise is not very noticeable on a city street, but those shootings took place at such close range that a shot to the head with even a .22 was a pretty sure thing. Maybe this was just a prank, and the person who fired on the officers never meant to kill them. You know, just some kid horsing around.

    Holder and Obama insinuated themselves into what was a local problem and thus became part of the story. When Obama mentions it in a speech to the UN explaining once again to the despots how America has its problems, then we know a line has been crossed. Not the red line promise he broke earlier but the one requiring some good judgement.

    The buck stops there.

You can see the frustration, but I frankly dont care. They do it to themselves, and Im not risking my safety for them.

    On top of that its a massive strain on the system, because it takes longer to run calls, and it pulls the police away from where they are needed more though they have certainly saved my ass before. And we've saved theirs. We have to have each others backs in those neighborhoods.

    Most people simply have no idea how fast things can go south-and to he cops credit they do it and generally politely-far more than I would have been. I tell them all the time I dont know how they do it.
    Perhaps there are aspects of the Black culture that should change?

    If racism is rampant in Ferguson, wouldn't you think the blacks would be the first to know and not need a DOJ report on the subject?

    Which other constitutionally guaranteed rights do you sneer at, besides the right to keep and bear arms?
