    "It doesn't matter"? Seriously?

    So ignore everything he posted simply because thugs and gangsters aren't in a "position of trust", so just give them a pass for their behavior, which is far far far more detrimental to the community and this country than the actions of one possible rogue cop.

    Seriously?

    That would be great if our soldiers were actually about the task of fighting for freedom! However, none of our ME military engagements have been about freedom.

    So...the correct response to police abuses is for the communities to riot? So...maybe there should be a group of white race baiters (the equivalent of Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton) that look for any incidents where white 'victims' of police brutality can be exploited and that only surface when there are passions to be inflamed? That 'helps'?

    Demand investigations. Fine. Pursue legal action (the 'victims' listed above did).

    So...everyone knows that poor Rodney King was beaten down by cops and there was a trial and it caused days of riots. "The Community" got involved in that...that worked out well...right? Billions in damages, others got beat down. Rodney king was a paroled felon that led police on a high speed chase rather than just pull over. He was still on paper and his BAC was around .20 at the time of the incident. When he finally was stoped, rather than comply or cooperate,, he began acting like a drunk felon on parole. They tried tazing him several times and finally jumped on him and beat him. Was it excessive? Well...it sure as hell LOOKED bad...I'll give em that.

    Rodney king also had a history of drug charges, more DUI charges, domestic violence charges after beating his wife, 2 incidents of hit and run and 2 more DUIs.

    Was he worth all that?

    I didn't say riot at all, I just said communities should get involved. If a unarmed white person does get gunned down by the police, yes people should stand up and demand action. Nowhere and in no way do I support rioting as the answer, peaceful protests all the way. I was saying that because no one does seem to care and get off theirs butt and do something about the stories you posted, that's why we haven't heard about them. But whatever, spin it how you want it spun.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    No one said nothing was done in those cases. They simply arent national spectacles because a bunch of race baiting assholes didnt inflame communities into riots before any facts were known about the case. There is no 'spin'...only the facts. The 'facts' are that any time there is an opportunity to exploit, the same cast of clowns will show up and create the kind of responses that only reinforce every problem and stereotype already in existence. The facts are that as soon as this slows down a little bit, those people will slink away from the scene and leave the residents to deal with the carnage.

    I think we may need the facts on complaints against this Police Dept. from the past to see if there is a history. When a 70% black community has a 90% white Police Dept., it seems a little alarming/suspicious. Granted that perhaps blacks don't apply for Police jobs in Ferguson, but when looking for a job, "a jobs a job," is the prime mover. I can see both sides of this story, but nothing justifies what was apparently 4 shots, perhaps 5, especially since the body was 35 feet from the car, unless he had really long arms, eh?

    havent you heard? There are eyewitnesses to the event that said the cop shot him in the head and then the back at point blank range.

    It has been revealed that the PD there HAS attempted to hire on black officers but when they do and they get trained they get snatched up into higher paying LE jobs because of other peoples quota systems. maybe a better effort at quality law enforcement retention is in order across the board.

    Assuming there was anything inappropriate with this shooting. Which, we cant do...right?

    The incidents were handled. They werent made into race baiting spectacles resulting in billions of dollars worth of damage to the community. there was nothing wrong with the community response to those stories cited. They were handled like adults. Their communities werent devastated. Tragedy wasnt compounded on by a bunch of ****ing morons.
