    Re: Ferguson MO??

    This is a terrible thread. The poll has answers but lacks a question - trust me when I say the the name of a city coupled with grand jury decision (going either way?) is not a question. The OP then asks an entirely different question which does not align with the poll's allowed answers.

    Their are violent morons in Ferguson, MO who will riot if the police officer that shot and killed Brown is not convicted. Whether the GJ or a later court trial reaches the insufficient evidence/not guilty decision makes no difference.

    As for "readiness", I doubt that any level of police presence will stop the rioting; that requires police ACTION not just a police presence. One must remember that Brown was not stopped by police presence he was stopped by police action - it was police presence that seemed to have set Brown off in the first place.

    I am not sure how you perceived that to be my position. My point is that those prone to break the law by rioting, using the action of police as an excuse, will not be stopped by police presence they may only be stopped by use of force.

    No, I don't think they reached a decision yet, but yes, they are preparing for one, and I don't think that's a bad idea.

    The problem is regardless of how the decision turns out!

    you have a hate crime that took place so nobody wins
    unless these cops who did this? are sentenced to death
    for their crimes I expect a full onset riot to take place
    either way
    I speak my mind. If it offends some people, well, there's not much I can do about that. But I'm going to be honest. I'm going to continue to speak my mind, and that's who I am.

    You figure that the cops (multiple) should be sentenced to death even though evidence hasn't been formally or fully presented? You figure that simple suspicion is enough to warrant that option?

    Was the hate crime when Michael Brown attacked the White Police Man?
