    I can't believe you're throwing out a strawman. It's not about the report, it's about Holder's public comments that irresponsible to say the least. Two cops are dead now.

    Holder poltiticized the whole thing, because that's what he does with everything.

    Ain't no body got no time to be reading reports!


    That's why soundbites are bad.
    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    You are right, Holder did not, and I haven't hear Sharpton come right out and say 'lets get those crackers'. But it is they who can call for calm.
    Instead of the usual 'gotcha' attitude, they could have insisted on being calm and to let our justice system, one with all its flaws still the best in the world, btw, take its course.
    How can healing begin when it is too lucrative to pick sides, to stir the hornet's nest?
    Yes, out the wrong, set an example, but realize that words, actions, and even gestures, count. That goes for Holder and Sharton esp, not just white police officers.

    They're not dead. Not that it changes anything you've said in this thread. I 100% agree with all of your posts.

    If it is shown that people were insighting violence against the police...the shooter is ultimately responsible for his actions.
    Uhm.....both are illegal.

    So what if they're " two separate acts "

    Is anyone surprised this happened? I'm not.

    I see they're resigning in droves in Ferguson, from the Chief on down. Personally I can't understand why any white person would take a job as a cop there anymore. It's a poisonous atmosphere. Let them set up an all-black force and I'm sure their crime problems will simply disappear.

    Holder. Unbelievable.
