    Problem is, they might think you were a rabid dog needing hunting down, the way you write.

    And I might be a rabid dog if I looted and burned buildings. Since I have not they would be mistaken. So it is not really a problem.

    By the way, there were 100 FBI agents in town to watch the looting, burning and general Obama-inspired lawlessness. How many arrests did they make?

    My guess is it will decrease...along with the population. Who'd wanna live in Ferguson after this?

    i dont know if the grand jury testimony has been released yet...but my understanding is that it will be

    if a panel of people after sitting for months couldnt find enough evidence to warrant a trial, why would you think one is needed?

    do you believe the grand jury was tainted? if so, by whom?

    and this is the FIRST time i can ever remember the entire transcript being released.....

    people wanted transparency....they will get it

    i dont understand what more could be done......

    Businesses and citizens will want to rebuild after this. Don't you know riots, natural disasters and war are fantastic for GDP growth?!

    So...maybe there should be civil lawsuits filed against people that acted to incite those riots. I wonder...do we have audio/video of such people?

    Surely there are photos. I hope those who were looting and burning are all identified and arrested. They shouldn't get away with this.

    The fact that we are seeing, what we are seeing happen, shows that there is distrust of the Grand Jury's impartiality and probably even its independence. This is even worse, considering the wide spread emotions and violence the affair has unleashed. We are obviously facing a systemic problem that cannot be solved at the county and probably not even at the State level.

    i disagree

    what i think it shows is that the black community lacks leadership

    it has plenty of trouble makers, and race baiters.....but where are it's leaders?

    where are those willing to invest back into their own communities?

    where are those standing up for the charter schools so that their children can actually get a decent education?

    and since so many of the black community think the police forces around the country are racist, why arent more black cops patrolling the streets?
