    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?
    You mean leadership like in Malcom X? Maybe that is our good luck.

    But obviously the grand jury did not help and the unrest and damage is very, very real. So, if we did not want this outcome, we did not succeed. Did we?

    They are just of the wrong type.

    If the participation rate of the above thread is any indication, no one from either side of the coin seems interested in real leadership.

    we didnt succeed?

    i thought the goal was to find the truth?

    and imo, that has been uncovered

    if it wasnt what a lot of people wanted to hear, i am sorry

    but since when do we capitulate to fear and race baiting instead of the truth?

    The goal of truth finding may or may not have been achieved. The thing is, too many people have not been convinced that is has. And one goal must have been to avoid riots, which we did not.

    The sad thing is that it was very likely, as I wrote at the beginning, that a local solution was not the way to go as it could and would not convince anyone but the people that were already convinced in any event. I would never trust the county level or even the State level on something like this. And to allow this type of issue to be dealt with by the locals is pure stupidity and asks for the kind of trouble the nation has received.

    the only people that could have prevented the riots are the black community themselves

    and sometimes i wonder in these situations if we shouldnt just let them burn down their own neighborhoods

    was the killing a tragedy? yes

    could it have been prevented? yes

    was it a criminal act on officer wilson's part? NO

    maybe a bit more respect for the law is what needs to be taught in those communities......

    i know one thing......it couldnt hurt

    How did we fail. Brown was a criminal. Those that looted and burned are criminals. Criminals to criminal things. Big deal.

    If you find one bad apple, you shrug and throw it away. If you find 10, you throw them away. When you find 100 or a thousand, you might want to look at the storage system.

    You may want to arrest all of them, or as many as possible and see if they were stored right there in town. Or were they imports.

    or maybe what you are calling bad, isnt

    are all cops good cops.....HELL NO

    are there thousands (as per your assumption) of bad cops.......HELL NO

    so maybe....your definition of what makes a bad cop needs to be adjusted

    cops come from the general population.......

    they are good ones, and not so good ones

    the academies and the testing have come a long way in weeding out those that should never wear a badge

    some still get through.......i get that......and as they are found, they should face the severity of the law

    officer wilson did NOTHING WRONG.......yet you consider him a bad cop i think......right?

    so maybe, it is your criteria that needs to be adjusted......

    and your reasoning as to what makes a bad cop....which apparently differs from most other people

    Why do you believe the democrat-caused black community has so many bad apples?
