    Yes but when protests turn violent, like has happened in Ferguson, an officer's role changes accordingly. They are now placed in a situation where contain and control are the main objectives. Much like the role of the military.

    It is a valid complaint as well IMO.

    The problem is while I consider it very valid and a very big problem in the US this is all focused on one shooting incident which everyone is using as an example of the problem.

    The evidence does not support this incident as such an example however.

    Yea he did. Should be fired.


    I'm going to go out on a limb here, and say that such things have a tendency to happen when a person has spent the last several hours (and very likely, the last several days) being harassed and basically assaulted by an angry mob of idiots intent on doing their best impression of a deranged pack of howling Chimpanzees.
    Tuesday night was relatively calm. If he cant keep his "cool" while peaceful protesters are marching then I dont think he is fit to be a police officer. Pointing your gun at protestors with their hands in the air and asking for his name is beyond inappropriate and there is no excuse.


    When the other officers on the scene saw what was going on, they took him aside to cool off. Problem solved.
    Should never have happened period.

    For that matter, what gives you the idea that police officers are obligated to tell you their name?
    Because if they are not wearing badges (many in Missouri are not) they are basically acting impunity if they cannot be identified.

    People who work in service jobs do that 5 days a week, 8 hours a day and if they lose their temper, they lose their job

    Many teachers also endure similar conditions, but if they pointed a gun at their students, they'd be fired and rightfully so.

    In some states, officers on patrol are required to identify themselves as well as wear name badges or ID badges. Don't know about MO

    Yes, listening to the audio I could tell these were "journalists" of the highest integrity and professionalism.

    Bull****, that was an angry mob, and they were most likely throwing ****. Notice the woman calling out to not throw ****. They were taunting the officers and looking for any weakness. They were not there to protest peacefully, but to stir the pot and get a YouTube moment, a little fame and cool cred. Notice they couldn't resist turning the camera on themselves.

    I heard people in the audio yelling "don't throw anything" repeatedly. Sounded to me like the potential was there for problems if even the crowd was concerned the situation could escalate if some idiot provoked it.

    Since you can't back up your inane claim that this journalist felt entitled to do anything he wanted and go anywhere he wanted, the honest thing to do would be to admit that your post was hyperbolic instead of fishing for some other inane claim you can't back up.

    Anybody see Fox News side of this? Its the Liberal mainstream media provoking those protesters making it worse look what NBC News showed what Al Sharpton said




    What about 90% of Blacks killing other Blacks in Chicago and in Detroit? The Mainstream media doesn't report those.. WHY NOT?

    I've seen some truly asinine things posted over the time I've been here but if that isn't the stupidest comment I've ever seen, I don't know what is.
