    He is in a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation. If he doesn't have them prepared then he is not doing his job. If he does have them prepared, it looks like he is spilling the beans early and provoking violence.

    I live about an hour from there and we are watching closely. I fly in and out of Lambert about 4 times a month so this affects me for work.

    No one is going to win in this. I predict more bloodshed before it's over and in the end who is that really helping?

    I don't believe that we can know the answer until this situation is over with.

    The man was in a damned if you do/damned if you don't situation as others have said.

    I'm going to keep my fingers crossed.

    I don't believe that the grand jury has decided that a trial is necessary yet.

    I predict that he situation in Ferguson will be handled in a civilized manner by everyone involved.

    By guess is as good as anyone else's guess.

    Why can't all Americans act civilized one time?

    Oh you guys crack me up! All I have to do is mention race, or ethnicity, or oppression, or systems of power, and so many of you immediately get emotional. And heaven be with anyone who dares to use the words "privilege" and "white" in the reverse order...

    Of course you haven't seen it. You have the privilege not to.

    Exactly. Focus on situations on a case-by-case basis. Because otherwise, the clear pattern of subjugation of people of color would emerge.

    Yep, that's all I need to know.

    Yet again, those words are a product of your privilege, which is currently invisible to you.

    I'm a truck driver and I live in rural Louisiana. What privilege do you speak of?
