    Re: Ferguson

    It is a shame our African-American brothers and sisters cannot enjoy the right to peaceful assembly. I wonder what it is about their culture that makes it almost impossible to remain peaceful during said assemblies? All it takes is a handful of punk thugs to ruin it for them all. I think their anger is somewhat misdirected.

    More and more, cities and counties are restricting the use of rap artists and R&B artists from having concerts at local fairs and festivals simply because the crowds do not seem to be able to assemble without violence. Why is that?

    My OP was not so much about the details of this incident, which I actually believe maybe just, especially seeing his demeanor in the convenience store, though that probably wouldn't be relevant in court. It was more about what's causing such a vehement reaction by the people? I think it's indicative of a wider social schism than a few unjust acts by LEO.
    If the bullet entered his arm in the front of his arm, he couldn't have had his hands up.

    The toxicology report will be the next shoe to drop. Could be very interesting.

    Re: Ferguson

    Here's the crazier thing. As of right now the leading response to this poll is "police injustice" even though the evidence is now showing that it was probably a good shoot. Its not just the people who may have valid reasons to get ginned up by idiots like Sharpton. Its also sheeple who blindly follow the media narrative and who apparently like to visit political forums.

The idiots who are looting & rioting are whining, disgusting SOBs who are using this dead kid for their own gain, and anyone who thinks otherwise is crazy too.

    Well that would be true. Brown didn't know the officer didn't know he committed the offense.

    I wonder when the dust settles how many of those Ferguson cops are going to put in for a transfer to a different police department? You couldn't pay me enough to be a cop there now, and if my husband was one, I would hound him until he GTFO of there.

    Sharpton....he should have gone away when the Tawana Brawley lies were exposed, but he didn't. And when the lies of the hooker who made false accusations against the Duke Lacrosse players were exposed, he didn't go away then either. But people lap up the **** he spoon feeds them anyway.

    Race baiting is a growth business.

    That's according to the repair script the protest side has been sloganizing. Some accounts have him getting the call before the struggle began.

    The term "good shoot" just makes me ****ing cringe.
