    Apparently you don't understand the difference between emotions and evidence.

    Evidence is based on fact, which I have been discussing with you. Emotions are what you have displayed because you have no evidence which backs up your sympathy for Brown. Here's an idea. Find some evidence which backs up you emotions and we can look at it. Other than that, you are wasting my time and I'm done.

    Oh I'm sure that Brown's ultimate goal in life was to die like Bonnie and Clyde..

    And I'm not ignoring Brown's contribution to the final outcome..I just think that it could have been controlled.... therefore avoiding the current problems..

    How would you know about Brown's goal? You clearly no nothing about the case. Perhaps you could do something about that.

    Have a good day.

    I did present evidence for my concern about the justice system in general. To present outdate material as evidence is nothing but shoddy and unethical.

Then when the grand jury didn't bring the verdict of "guilty" that was hoped for, the rioting, looting, and burning businesses to the ground began! I'm not saying that any shooting death is better or worse than any other, but this one fed flames that could have been avoided, IMO, since this one was deliberately manipulated by the administration, and that is wrong!
    I don't know if it was deliberately manipulated by the administration of or not. If Holder had gone with the idea of telling all involved to remain calm and let the justice system which he is in charge of work it course, then that is fine.

    The fact I think that very few whites has sympathy for those is in Ferguson is the riots were caused by those in Ferguson. They did this to themselves. I do believe they had just beefs, but getting those who can help solve those just beefs turned against you is not the way to go.

    This problem in Ferguson must be solved at the local level. Between the PD and the community, between the community and those in charge of the community. I think one can help facilitate the discussions leading to a solution, but one can't find a solution for them.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    He went over his options and it all checks out with the GJ. Then he went over it with ABC. No difference in his timeline.

    I say yes
    .There is no reason to mention the races of the individuals involved is such a shooting unless it is to instill the idea that the reason that one individual was shot because of skin and the individual who did the shooting did so because of race. When someone burglarizes a house they don't say a hispanic,black, white or whatever burglarized the the home of a white,hispanic, black of whatever homeowner. Other police shootings do not get as much attention as this story. If the media did not do these things I seriously doubt there would be any riots in Ferguson.


    What do you find in this opinion piece that would incite anyone?
