    They're not much of a municipal money maker when the lawsuits come rolling in.

    Imo, you have to be REALLY dedicated, really corrupt or really stupid to want to be a cop in Ferguson right now.

    If the FPD animals kept to themselves, none of this would've happened.

    He didn't mean what he said; it was a political statement. And conservatives apparently aren't buying it.

    Rooting out the racism in Ferguson will cure what ails Ferguson. Nobody mentioned all of the ails of the world that I'm aware of.
    You haven't read the report. First, it concludes with recommendations for the department to clean itself up. Second, Holder hasn't stated that doing so will fix all that ails Ferguson.

Because if they aren't, and they aren't in the PD, who cares about them in this thread. I don't.

    I did read the report. I didn't memorize it word for word. You pasted those emails here. There must be hundreds of them or more recent ones that you can share. Um, not memorizing emails sent by a police department that's about 2000 miles from where I live doesn't make me a racist.
    See, again, read the report, and then comment. Or do we need to keep telling you what's in it. The seven e-mails included in the released report are stated as examples. We don't know how many there are. And the e-mails were sent, so that expands the problem. I didn't say anything about memorizing. I said minimizing. Which makes one appear a racist themselves!

    Actually I did. All 105 pages, legal citations and all. I didn't commit it to memory. You did?

    I saw pages and pages of recommendations (instructions) from the DOJ about what should be done now, everything from the changes in the force to changes in the court. Is the US government in the habit of making recommendations to "clean yourself up" and then just sitting back hoping it happens? Interesting. That's a large shift from the way they handle environmental issues, and bank malfeasance, and corporate problems, and so on. "Just clean yourself up and let us know when it's all fixed".

    If the problem in Ferguson is the racism and cop issues and court issues, and those are fixed as per the numerous and very detailed recommendations in that 105 page report, then the problems should be fixed. Or is the DOJ just completely dishonest about what the problems are?

    No, you're right - we don't know how many emails there are. Or who sent them. Or what has happened in that force in the 3 years between that last email example and when Michael Brown was shot. But you know there are numerous other, current examples from current members of that force.....how exactly?

    Not everyone else is a racist because we don't jump on bandwagons. This isn't a racist issue, it's a bad cop/bad court issue. Or is it?

    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.
    It's unbelievable that you think that the JD's report has only seven racist e-mails in it. If you'd only read it, then you'd see the documented pattern of constitutional violations to the citizens of Ferguson, as well as documentation of the departments pattern of breaking the law, with the help of a compliant court, as well as officer ethics and conduct failures.

    Such hyperbole. It's the racist elements and practices of the police force that need to go. Not the whole police force. Why would you be against purging the racist elements from the police force that have been harming Americans?
