    They don't seem to be affiliated with sharpton at all....

    However they do talk about as I claimed "marching througout the city" not just at one police plaza as pash suggested.

    Well, yes. The reason why people are chanting for dead cops is because of spreading perception among the public (stimulated by a media crusade against police departments and the cops own natures besting them on social media) that cops don't value the lives of the public. Such a perception takes root in particular among the ethnically marginalized poor, whose collective experience maintains that they are on the receiving end of police brutality.

    Even in communities where departments have relatively peaceful relations with such neighborhoods, there is a problem where crimes against certain demographics (colloquially referred to as "taxpayers", usually but not always whites) receive more attention and concern from the police than the ethnically marginalized poor. Generally, "taxpayers" have the know-how, connections, and resources to make the police pay for perceived sloppy or indifferent service more than the ethnically marginalized poor do; they have a better understanding of their rights, tighter finances, and a more developed comprehension of how to use the media to their advantage. In a world where police departments have limited resources and personnel, that means the interests of such persons (say a disappeared 19-year old white female from an upper middle class family) will be consistently rated above say, the disappearance of a 15-Latino male from a poor neighborhood.

    And that's the good relations.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    What's being said is nice and all but I'd rather have some actual evidence to that before I jump to conclusions, can you or can you not back up your claims?

    Chuck Todd spoke about this in a less slanted way in an interview with Charlie Rose. His interpretation of it is that Obama does not have a good relationship with the military because the brass at the military refuses to consider anything new. The example he gave as best as I can recall was that from early on they would recommend a course of action. Obama would ask them to come up with other scenarios for him to consider and then they would come back and recommend the same thing they did the first time without proposing any alternatives so eventually the President became so frustrated with them trying to force him to do what they wanted him to do, that he sought out alternatives outside of military circles. Obviously the military circles do not like that. My take away was not the Obama dislikes the military so much as he likes to have lots of discussions and things to think about rather than just being told by someone else what to do.

    Of course not-Sharpton is too smart for that. Think for a second. Did Sharpton at all contribute?

    This guy is, no doubt. But no, you cannot yell "fire" in a crowded theatre, you cannot incite others to violence [cleverly done here] and you cannot, in sane countries, single out an "identifiable group" for any form of disrepute. Here, you may not get jail for robbery, but you will for what this prick is doing.

    There is no "right" in anything he's doing, in fact the opposite made even more disgusting because he clearly doesn't even believe his own rhetoric, HE isn't going to march with the people he's stirred to action.

    Because its politically convenient, and they think nobody else notices. But they are right.

    God damn right mlk is spinning.

    You are right we wont know-but Sharpton is a mental case as well. And we can't pretend he's had no impact, and he's benefitted politically. We know...
