    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    So, again, why aren't people who tolerate corruption themselves corrupt. That should be easy to answer. I think the opposite personally, and will say why. If you tolerate corruption, you accept it. If you are a passive observer of a crime and do nothing to stop it, you are not an honest person.

    So if the members of the force saw corruption and did nothing, why are you so convinced that they should keep their jobs, and that it won't happen again? I'm not.

    The Republocrats are not ones to distrust government. They both love government and expanding its power over the People. What was once Conservative no longer is. Lots of modern conservatives are nothing more than militant authoritarians.

    I realize you've not been to Ferguson. There's a host of infrastructure trouble, just for starters, that won't be fixed by purging racism from the police department.

    I've never been to Ferguson. Never claimed to. I only know what I see on the news and what I read in Holder's report.

    What did you see as the other prevailing issues that cause the problems there? And how much improvement will there be in the lives of the citizens when the problems within the PD are fixed? Will there be capital investments in the town to replace the businesses that were destroyed in the name of protest last year?

    Okay, sorry. Yes, I know they weren't from Ferguson. I think I heard that in the presser yesterday.
