    But condoms cost 6 bucks! If everything was given for free there would be no unprotected sex or divorce, or even poverty.

    Thats the liberal view, apparently.

    yup, and lets not forget this was a cop unaware and merely wanting a person out of the middle of the street, a person who moments before appeared to have committed assault and robbery stealing swisher sweets according to the evidence. This person had a highly exerted catecholamine ("adrenalin") release ( perhaps thinking "I just pulled off a robbery!" and then "cops got me!" as they approached) so he was amped up and likely looking fierce (big guy).

    The cop would have been shocked by the response of this big angry person and when the kid refused to comply he defended himself-the cop's saying the person reached into the car, trying to get the gun and at one point GOT it, there was an accidental discharge (from the struggle). Then the dearly departed backs off, starts verbally taunting the cop, and when the cop defends himself shooting him a mere 3 feet away (and in the front, NOT the back as if this thug running off. The cop has apparently stated that he also appeared to be on drugs- Id say possibly the type he may have been stealing swisher sweets to make blunts with.

    And the only first hand witness is his robber partner who gives a story assuming facts not in evidence. This has even less merit and more myth than the Trayvon Martin case-in that one the facts of the case were disregarded and our "balanced" media fueled a narrative for ratings. The media is doing the same now-hoping to milk this.

    Obama wants this to be high visibility to distract from the election and world events and to energize the left. This sort of "outrage" really helps democrat party fundraising, especially before such an unpromising looking mid term.

    It's most likely both ways. Single parent families promote child poverty, which promotes single parent families, and around and around it goes. The way to break the cycle is to marry before having babies.

    The rioting has nothing to do with the police action and one man but rather an opportunity to loot and trash the city you live in. It is like taking a crap in your own bed.
    So now the city you live in has less stores and less chance of anyone wanting to invest in bringing a business into your city.

    His best line was asking the Black Panthers where were they when the little girl was killed by a stray bullet while riding her tricycle in her front yard .
    Yep.

    It's a very tasteless exploitation of a kid's murder imo.

    But, we can't neglect that there are many in Ferguson making their efforts to repel looters and other such hoodlums from local businesses and shops.
