    A piece of that evidence was unethical.

    I have no idea, I wasn't there, neither were you. Michael got himself killed because he attacked a cop, tried to take his gun and thought he was bad enough to take the cop down. For me, that's all I need to know. If Brown would have moved out of the middle of the street when Wilson asked him to instead of turning into a thug, he would be alive today.

    Pinning a cop in his car while punching him in the face will likely increase the odds of loosing your life. Perhaps that bit of truth people want to ignore should be remembered.

    Says who? There was enough evidence, and as many eye witnesses as the grand jury needed to not charge Wilson. Neither of us have the background that the grand jury had. Any judgement that we can make which differs from the grand jury is not based on the evidence, it's emotional. Take your emotions out of it and I think you will see that Michael Brown was a petty criminal and a bully. You can watch him abuse the store owner of the place he strong arm robbed. The powder burns on his hand indicated that he was holding the barrel when the gun went off in the policeman car. Browns blood was in the car. How much more evidence do you need to know that Brown was at fault in the events that led to his death?

    doesn't answer the question I asked you.
    are you suggesting he was high and had agreed to a tox test?
    or are you suggesting being high is an exoneration for robbery in the UK.

    Re: Is the media inciting the Ferguson riots?

    Here's my thoughts on it and they won't buy you a cup of coffee.

    There's a group in this country that are radical left who hate this country and want to change it into something else. A very large group of the MSM are like minded with these people. The media was suppose to be the truth seekers that investigated issues fairly and reported the news without bias. Today because they have become so politicized, purposely sit on stories that may harm the agenda they seek and overplay any incident that will help further their agenda.

    News media outlets these days sound like parrots of one another. Why? Because an activist group wanting to sensationalize an event that would promote their cause puts out a story through the AP or Reuters and the media outlets pick up these stories and repeat them word for word never investigating it, just repeating it. For example, it is no secret the left promote greater gun control laws, some to the point of having them banned, so any story where a gun was used to kill a person(s) gets amplified. Anytime someone goes berserk shooting and killing many, they begin to promote the idea it is guns that are the problem, making excuses for those who pulled the trigger often making him out to be a victim of society for one reason or another lessening personal responsibility on the wrongdoer.

    Leftist activist groups, who have nothing but disdain for this country use race baiting to make the case for promoting "social justice" or socialism. They use stats that show more black people being incarcerated as a sign that white cops are racists. Race hustlers like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have made a mighty fine living being ambulance chasers to any incident they could milk to promote such a claim. By doing so, they cloak the real problem within the black community that has led to so many arrests and convictions. They don't care to look at the stats that show over 70% of black babies born are to single mothers and black men have failed to take personal responsibility for the children they helped produce. Regardless of race, these fatherless kids are prone to aggressive behavior and criminal activity. These kids grow up in poverty and often their only provider is Uncle Sam. And then you have people like Lois Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam as a leader in the black community with his legion of professional agitators stating "we are going to tear this country apart".

    Every leftist activist group is designed to go after an institution in this country that was part of making this the best damn success in history. And every last one of them is designed to remove personal responsibility for a person's poor choices. Because without personal responsibility are system crumbles. And with a major part of the media in their pockets, they have the propaganda machine they need to promote it.
