Michael Brown: A Criminal and a Thug

081514_tobin1400_video2_640-450x253As the media-sanctioned rioting, bloodshed and looting continue in Ferguson, Missouri, evidence is emerging that police shooting victim Michael Brown wasn’t the upstanding citizen that many on the Left have claimed him to be.

All of this is happening as mobs have been attacking cops with Molotov cocktails and destroying community infrastructure. Some blacks in the region are reportedly randomly assaulting non-blacks as collective payback for what happened to Brown. Looting and property destruction are rampant. Scores of people have been arrested. Aircraft were ordered to fly at least 3,000 feet over Ferguson airspace after police said their helicopters were fired on from the ground.

A curfew was imposed, and the state’s feckless Democratic governor, Jay Nixon, stripped local police of some of their responsibilities, replacing them with state highway patrolmen. This, predictably, led to more looting of stores and all the things that usually happen when an angry, violent mob is rewarded for its bad behavior.

Through it all, the Left is out in force in Ferguson, trying to make a bad situation worse. The criminal elements of the city have been emboldened by martyrized accounts of Brown, and have carried out a campaign of destruction against the civil order under the banner of “no justice, no peace.”

As happened in the Trayvon Martin case two years ago, the hulking, nearly 300-lbs. Brown has been portrayed as an innocent doe-eyed angel unfairly cut down by evil police as a promising future awaited him. In Brown’s case, he was said to be just days away from heading off to college.

But as one blogger observed, in this age of ubiquitous social media, the 18-year-old African-American man left behind,

“a cache of rap songs … that contain pretty much what you’d expect out of modern rap – lots of boasting about murdering, taking drugs, drinking, and sex with hos.”

In one of them labeled “Free$tyle Big’Mike,” one performer raps, “My favorite part’s when they bodies hit the ground. I soak ‘em up like I’m wringin’ out a sponge.”

The fact that Brown liked performing thug music obviously doesn’t by itself make him a thug, but it does provide insight into his state of mind. The same can be said for the photographs that have surfaced of Brown posing like a tough guy, making gestures with his hands that some say are gang signs.

But what Brown did before he was killed by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, whose home and address were publicized by a reporter despite ceaseless death threats against the officer, offers compelling insight into what made Brown tick.

Evidence is now available that shows that Brown tried to wrest a gun away from a policeman and that he was ordered to freeze before he charged Darren Wilson and was shot. Some have suggested Brown was high on drugs at the time and that made him especially aggressive but a toxicology report on his body won’t be available for weeks.

Before the shooting incident last weekend, Brown used violence and the threat of more violence to steal. With an accomplice, he knocked over a convenience store, bullying victims with his prodigious size and weight. (Incidentally, the owner of the store told the Washington Post he fears that his customers will murder him and that he begged reporters not to suggest that he called the police on Brown.)

An official incident report about the robbery was released Friday by Ferguson police, over the vehement but ultimately groundless objections of left-wing politicians, including the Missouri governor and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. History shows that leftist office holders aren’t too concerned about getting to the bottom of a matter when their supporters are in the streets calling for blood. If the documentation in question helped make the case that the local police were cold-blooded, murdering racists, those same politicians would be loudly demanding its release.

The report in question identifies Brown and his 22-year-old friend Darren Johnson as suspects in the Aug. 9 robbery that took place minutes before Brown’s death.

According to the report, police responded to a call about “stealing in progress” at a convenience store. The stolen item was a $48.99 box of Swisher Sweets cigars.  Marijuana users are known to hollow out such cigars and use them to smoke drugs.

A man identified as Brown was captured in store surveillance stills having a physical confrontation with a much smaller store employee who tried to lock the doors of the establishment to prevent the men from departing with the stolen item.

The 6’ 4”, 292-pound Brown took the employee by his shirt and pushed him back into some merchandise. As Brown moved toward the door, he then turned around and moved toward the worker “appearing to intimidate him.” After that Brown disappears from the camera footage.

Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson made the video of the robbery available Friday, explaining that state law forced him to act. Reporters had demanded the footage under the Freedom of Information Act, Jackson said.

The Obama administration sought to suppress the release of the inconvenient footage by pressuring the department not to release it to the public. Pandering for votes, Gov. Jay Nixon said Sunday he “deeply” disagreed with the decision by Ferguson police to release the robbery video.

The recording was made public “Number one to attempt in essence to disparage the character [of Brown] in the middle of a process like this is not right,” Nixon said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

So, first local police were condemned for not being sufficiently transparent; then after they released a key piece of evidence they were condemned for being too transparent.

Gov. Nixon then claimed that releasing the video was too painful for his constituents. “And secondarily it did put the community and, quite frankly, the region and the nation on alert again,” he said.

Of the week-old case, Nixon said, “These are old wounds, these are deep wounds in these communities and that action was not helpful.” Of course, by the governor’s reasoning the local police have no right to make the case that they are not murderers while they are being indicted by the frenzied Ferguson community, media and political Left.

Gov. Nixon again pushed emotional buttons, playing to the mob. “When you see your son gunned down in the street and then you see a police chief begin an attempt to attack his character, that’s just not the way to operate and we’ve made that clear to everyone,” he said.

This means Nixon believes that Jesse Jackson Sr. and Al Sharpton, who have been making campaign stops in Ferguson, have every right to be heard while the local police at the heart of the case should just remain silent and take whatever abuse is hurled at them.

Sharpton, the perpetrator of the infamous Tawana Brawley hoax and a close ally of President Obama, also weighed in on the release of the video.

“Michael Brown is gone,” he said in St. Louis yesterday. “You can run whatever video you want. He is not on trial. America is on trial!”

Sharpton continued:

“I have never in all my years seen something as offensive and insulting as a police chief releasing a tape of a young man trying to smear him before we even have his funeral.”

However, the more we learn about the nature of the crime and of Brown’s character, the clearer it is to see who should really be on trial: The likes of Al Sharpton and the race-hate industry, whose lies are fueling a vicious war against civil society in Ferguson.

Meanwhile, an autopsy performed by famed pathologist Dr. Michael M. Baden, former chief medical examiner for New York City, determined that Brown was not shot in the back as some have claimed. In particular, the autopsy contradicts the “eye witness” account of one left-wing media darling, Tiffany Mitchell, who claimed on MSNBC that Officer Wilson was pursuing Brown as he ran away and that Brown was shot in the back as he fled.

The autopsy report concluded that Brown was shot six times. One bullet penetrated his right eye, proceeding through his face, leaving through his jaw and then entering his collarbone. The final two shots in his head were probably the last ones fired.

Brown, who otherwise appeared to be healthy, would have died as a result of the shooting even if he had been transported immediately to a hospital, Baden said.

“People have been asking: How many times was he shot? This information could have been released on Day 1,” Baden told the New York Times after completing the private four-hour autopsy yesterday. “They don’t do that, even as feelings built up among the citizenry that there was a cover-up. We are hoping to alleviate that.”

Baden stressed that he was not assigning blame for the death or justifying what was done the day of Brown’s death.

But Benjamin L. Crump, an attorney for Brown’s family, tried to use the new forensic evidence to bolster the case that the young man was a victim of police brutality.

“The sheer number of bullets and the way they were scattered all over his body showed this police officer had a brazen disregard for the very people he was supposed to protect in that community,” Crump said. “We want to make sure people understand what this case is about: This case is about a police officer executing a young unarmed man in broad daylight.”

Of course the fact that a suspect was shot repeatedly and all over his body doesn’t necessarily demonstrate “brazen disregard” or that the individual was summarily executed by a police officer. It more likely indicates that the shooter, rightly or wrongly, believed that the suspect posed a danger to his life. And the fact that a suspect was “unarmed” doesn’t necessarily have much probative value in a case in which the individual allegedly tried to gain control of a police officer’s firearm.

Crump covered travel expenses for Baden and an assistant to Missouri, retaining the two for the procedure. Baden waived his customary $10,000 fee, the newspaper reports.

This autopsy and an official county autopsy apparently aren’t enough. Now Eric Holder’s spokesman says the “extraordinary circumstances” — whatever those may be — require that a federal autopsy be conducted. Forty FBI agents have also reportedly gone door-to-door in Ferguson in an attempt to gather evidence in an ongoing civil rights investigation related to the shooting.

And they’ll keep digging until they find evidence that vindicates the mob and the left-wing media and the community organizers from Chicago who have descended on Ferguson in order to make an example of the innocent people who live there.

The president’s mother was an American of direct European heritage, not African. Hence, the president is mixed-race.

        There’s a reason why,post-college,Comrade Hussein traveled to Pakistan,of all places. it’s not because he was a Christian. There’s a reason why Comrade Hussein was aided in getting into college by Saudi money and influence.

        It’s all part of his efforts to weaken the US economically,politically,and militarily.

      They can’t go “back” to Africa any easier than other Americans can go “back” to Europe. We’re stuck with them. Time to stop dancing around and feeling sorry for them over slavery. They have to learn to become Americans and follow the rules. ALL of the rules.

      The press has been actively distorting these issues for years. They too must be taken to task for fomenting so much racial hatred. It should be a crime to distort facts which lead to horrific events.

      Know this about blacks though, they are absolute racists. They hate anyone who is not black. And they hate within shades of black. They are the benchmark for all racists globally. As bad as the racists of other races might be, blacks still hold the position of being the single most racist race on the planet.

      • Otis

        Thanks Sheik, nice assessment.

      • Intelligence

        What does “learn to become Americans” mean exactly, Sheik Yerbouti? Are YOU an American? What are the rules? I assume you mean laws? So, what you are saying is that other races obey ALL of the laws? So, not one non-black American has ever run a red light or stolen or littered or driven while intoxicated or assaulted a police officer or taken illegal drugs, etc. etc. etc? Is that what you’re saying? Unfortunately, we are stuck with YOU…a@@hole!

      • Becca

        I am extremely insulted by this. Unless you’re unaware, I am black and I am very sure I do not hate anyone who is not black so why don’t you stop labelling over a billion people right? Okay.

        • Sheik Yerbouti

          Sucks doesn’t it? That’s exactly how it feels when ALL whites are lamented over slavery and Jim Crow when we didn’t have a damned thing to do with it. Those people are dead. Why shake us down? Racism maybe?

          • bligh

            I hate when I am told what to think because I am white..and yes some blacks are racist themselves…but that doenst mean they all are..or we all are…

          • Sheik Yerbouti

            Want to hear something really funny? I had family in the Civil War from Pennsylvania. Fighting to free slaves. You think that crosses anyone’s mind when they are blaming white Americans for ALL of their fking problems?

            What’s really amazing to me is how many otherwise smart people of all races buy into all that narrative as it is fed out by the press to sell ad space. It’s amazing so many people can’t take a step back and say “What if the narrative is not entirely true?”. I do it all the time for BOTH sides of the aisle. I trust neither entirely, so I am puzzled by people who give their trust away just to feel good or win prizes.

          • bligh

            Hold the phone Sheik! YOU had kin that fought in the great Civil War!? So did 90 % of all Americans…including me. I find it strange that you and others do not want to acknowledge racism from long dead whites of 50 years ago but want acknowledgement of long dead ancestors of 150 years ago….and why? I myself do not think this was as much about race as class…and the massive misuse of power by our CIVILIAN police force..

          • Sheik Yerbouti

            I guess because none of my family was involved with any lynchings or marches 50 years ago. Most of that stuff didn’t get to the far north states much. Is that about what you wanted? Seriously, what difference does this make? I’m white, so low-thinking morons will make racist assumptions about me. I’m used to it actually.

        • Sheik Yerbouti

          How would I know what color you are when all I can see is your ascii? And why would I care? The fact that you are “extremely insulted” is an indicator of the very problem I am speaking to. For too long the rest of us, and I mean ALL of the non-black races, have been walking on eggshells around you because you are so “sensitive” and childlike in your acceptance of criticism.

          It’s amazing to me how low your threshold of “outrage” can be really. And while you are so “outraged” your sense of logic and proportion goes right out the window. And yes, from what I have seen with my own eyes, this seems to be a national pathology with black Americans. But I blame some of that on the government who enabled you to become a perpetual pity party for food and prizes.

          The worst suckering is the one you’re getting from the imposter in the Whitehouse, but that’s another story into your racist gullibility. As the Hispanic people that Obama is importing start shoving blacks out of their neighborhoods (well underway in California), I wonder if they’ll still blame it on whites? Probably, it’s what a racist would do.

        • Sheik Yerbouti

          Recent events seem to confirm what I have been saying. Ferguson is a nightmare because of black racism. Nothing more. And look how national it has gone. What other conclusion can I come to when so many people will mobilize on a lie and wreck a city? Of course “ALL” is extreme. Same as assuming that ALL white Americans are racists. But that is today’s message isn’t it? Right up there with “Burn this B##ch down”. Revenge is all they want. Justice is a foreign concept to this mob.

      • Marcus Waters

        I am black and I do not hate anyone. I believe in rules and laws and try and follow them. The problem is that rules are not the same for everyone. Slavery was really bad and the scars can still be felt to this day. I do not think most black people are racist I can’t speak for everyone, but I love everyone.

        • Drakken

          Bullsh*t! You have got more excuses than Heinz got pickles, time for your people to get with the program or time to pay the fiddler.

        • WhiteHunter

          You sound rational, except for the part about how “the scars [of slavery] can still be felt to this day.” I think a lot of us are tired of hearing about slavery, especially when it’s still used as some kind of excuse. How would you like it if the Jews of Israel still held a grudge against the Egyptians for the enslavement of their ancestors under the Pharaoh?

          Electing Obama–“the first African American president”–was supposed to “prove,” as if any “proof” were still needed, that we’re no longer a nation of slaveholding white racists.

          Instead, he–and especially Holder–have gone out of their way to stir up long-settled racial antagonisms (black against white, not the other way around) to an extent not seen in anyone’s living memory.

          Obama had a unique opportunity, as the first black president, to “unite the country,” AS HE REPEATEDLY CAMPAIGNED THAT HE WOULD. If he’d kept that promise, I would have put aside all of my misgivings about him–all of them well founded based on his known past and his associations; NONE of them because he’s black. And I would have cheered him.

          But he has been the opposite of what he promised to be: he’s been a polarizing, divisive, dishonest man who has staffed his secretive, corrupt administration with appointees and cabinet officers in his own image. THAT, and not his race, is why we fear him.

    • Brenda Jones

      Are you hearing yourself? Do you understand how stupid you sound? I could sit here and talk about over a thousand cases where WHITE PEOPLE have committed crimes, killed people, shot innocents. Don’t you dare act as if every other race in America is innocent besides us, don’t you dare. We are no disgrace and we are no worse than you disgusting, racist, low lives. Without us, America would be lost. OUR PRESIDENT IS BLACK FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. And maybe if you knew anything about history at all, you would know that YOU ARE THE IDIOTS THAT BROUGHT US HERE IN THE FIRST PLACE, WE DIDN’T CHOOSE. You have no idea, absolutely no idea how hard it is to be black in a country like America. Whether Michael Brown was innocent or not he was still shot six times by a ruthless police officer and if you were smart enough (which I doubt you are) you would look at his autopsy report and see that he had his hands up but Wilson just continued shooting. So don’t you ever say that we are useless or we should go back to where we “came from” because if every black person in this forsaken country stopped working and sat at home and did nothing, America would suddenly and very quickly become a country declining into poverty so stfu.

        “Without us, America would be lost.”

        How? What have negroes contributed to the United States, except for Civil War, crime, cultural degradation (and don’t give me that noise about “Jazz is America’s music”…jazz is noise, and the blues are only good for inducing suicidal tendencies), lowering average test scores, rioting, reducing standards across the board to a level that negroes can actually achieve at, or being the first admitted drug dealer to squat in the Oval Office?

        NOTHING!!!

        Did negroes build the Transcontinental Railroad? No. That was Irish, Germans and Chinese! (Neither the UP nor the CP hired negroes)

        Did negroes build the Statue of Liberty? No. That was French and American craftsmen.

        Did negroes develop the atomic bomb, or place men on the moon? No. Those were Americans.

        Did negroes write the Constitution or the Declaration of Independence? No. Those were Americans, not negroes.

If you just shipped your happy hind ends back to “da Muddahlan’,” like so many of you seem to want to do (hey, if you’re so “Affuhcan,” why are you even still here?), then you could see if your little hypothesis about this country “needing” negroes would play out.

        Here’s a more likely result: Negroes self-deport. Crime goes down, tax money can be diverted from prisons to paying down debt. Welfare rolls are cleared. Money from taxes can go to pay debt. No more barely literate bottom feeders working at fast food places…no more screaming black kids in fast food places…schools can actually focus on educating students, rather than disciplining negro thugs, and scholastic achievement increases. No more market for crack…rapes drop…no more “knockout game,” cities become safe again. Best of all, O’Choomer goes home to Kenya and takes Mooch with him!

        Oh, yeah…we need that parasitic 12.75 percent of the population SO much…no more rap, no more gang bangers, no more thugs, no more Oprah, Beyonce, Shaniqua, Trayvon, Dontravious, De’Tan’ge’lo or any of those other made up monikers…after all? Think of how horrible things would be without negroes! We might actually have peace and quiet…no more “thump-thump-SCREE!-SCREE!-F***! B**ch!” coming in through the windows at night…no more drive-bys…no more pimps and hoes…Oh, that WOULD be terrible, wouldn’t it?

        IN YOUR DREAMS!!! This country would be a paradise if you just hauled your butts back to “Affucuh”! That’s not a threat…it’s what we wish you’d do!!! So shut up, quit whining, AND JUST DO IT!!! Who’s keeping you here? Sure isn’t anyone with any sense!!!

          For centuries, the English enslaved children of the British Isles; it wasn’t until slavery was dealt with for Blacks—in particularity, in the West Indies plantations, and later, with Wilberforce—that slavery was fully considered. Equally, in our Southern states, the police were allowed to kill anyone who wasn’t wearing a badge; when—in the 60s, in the Black cases—the higher courts told them that, no longer would the states’ police power be allowed to kill and abuse as they had done, for people of other identifiable ethnic extraction.that abusive activity was stopped, as well, . . . so much as it did stop, . . . For the Civil Rights cases to have proceeded, an identifiable group manifesting abuse, was indispensable. The Blacks served that purpose, and was the only group which could have so served.

        Dunbar High School in Washington D.C. was a GREAT high school earlier in the 20th century; mostly black students who studied a classical curriculum (read Thomas Sowell on this). They turned out many leaders and literate, competent graduates who reflected the positive energies of the black community prior to having their culture destroyed by white liberals who controlled the teachers’ unions. Now the school is known for basketball. Mr. Waters is correct here (I’m white, if that matters any).

  • BMS

    I am so sick of people trying to make Michael Brown the poster boy for police and more significantly “White” injustice against black people. All the facts are not even out, yet hate mongers and s%$t stirrers like Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson are swooping down on Ferguson, MO for their own publicity. They are despicable people with no moral character posing as purveyors of justice. They live for this and they have already tried and sentenced the police officer and called for his death. And why are Obama and Holder getting involved and why did they even tried to suppress the release of the video showing Michael brown’s “true” character. Because the video doesn’t fit their narrative of how awful blacks are treated in this country. 40 FBI agents are assigned to Ferguson yet a marine sits in a Mexican prison and the President is doing nothing about that. Obama & Holder represent Black people only and they have aligned themselves with Al Sharpton to promote their “victim” agenda. They all have to go and that time can’t come soon enough.

          Right. He was just innocently banging Zimmerman’s head on the pavement and breaking the man’s nose as a unique way of sharing his Skittles with him. Spare me.

            Okay, let’s see if you can follow this. Jackie, the commenter who posted the comment above mine said, in all caps, “Zimmerman don’t you dare start with Zimmerman. He was shot, unarmed and was not provoking any police officer. He was murdered, end of story.” I pointed out that Zimmerman wasn’t shot (Martin was), wasn’t unarmed (Zimmerman was armed – that’s how he shot Martin) and is still alive. Martin is the one who is dead. Understand now?

        • Otis

          Actually, Zimmerman was defending his life against someone on top of him, attacking him, and beating him silly. And, this policeman had sustained facial injuries and was defending his life. Don’t you see the similarities?

        • CowboyUp

          I do dare to speak the truth, and it has become obvious that this is the same kind of lynching, so deal with it. Nice of you to admit brown was provoking a police officer, but martin was also a thug done in by his own violence.

        • JayWye

          liberals are STILL stuck on Trayvon,even though it was a cut and dry case.
          Tray’s own GF testified he made it ALL the way home safely,and thus had to BACKTRACK 70 yards to make his attack on Zimmerman. the 911 tapes show Z-man returning to his SUV to meet with police,going the opposite direction from Tray’s home. So the attack came from behind. Z-man only shot after he was pinned and being beaten,and only fired ONE round out of a magazine of 10. Lastly,it’s well proven that Trayvon actually WAS a burglar,thug,and drug abuser. There’s even proof he was seeking to obtain a gun,and a pic on his phone of someone holding one,likely a selfie.
          Trayvon’s “parents” made a lot of money on all this,too. They were rewarded for raising a thug and burglar.

        • truebearing

          Martin and Brown got what they were asking for. It’s too bad they had such bad attitudes at such a young age, but they bought into the ghetto culture, for which the price is frequently prison or death, or both.

    • blackyb

      Put the rioters and looters in jail and those who do not comply with lawful directives to disburse because of the danger posed by those in the crowds who are turning it into mayhem. The cops have the right to disperse crowds when they pose a threat.

      • Rational_Db8

        I agree with you overall, but have to take issue with your final statement. Cops do NOT have the right to disperse a crowd claiming they pose a threat when that crowd is non-violent and not impeding traffic significantly. Peaceful protesters have a right to gather and protest. And while some in Furgeson clearly do NOT meet this standard, others do and yet have still been dispersed with rubber bullets, tear gas, and flash bangs. That’s inexcusable.

        • Randy

          A riot is not a demonstration and the police should do whatever it takes to break it up !!!!!!!!!!

          • Rational_Db8

            Of course a riot is not a demonstration and needs police action. But as I already said, SOME of the police action has been against people who were peacefully protesting, demonstrating, and NOT rioting. Yet they were attacked by police with rubber bulletns, tear gas, and flash bangs. What’s more, they were driven back into a residential area this way, and the police kept right on firing flash bangs at them along with tear gas canisters, both of which can set homes of innocent people on fire. It’s inexcusable. It’s also incomprehensible to me why in other cases the police have apparently ignored looting and rioters. The police response ought to reasonably fit the situation – at least in some cases in Furgeson that does not appear to be happening at all.

          • Phil Bronner

            Flashbangs, or CONTINUOUS discharge gas canisters will only set homes on fire IF they are fired INTO the homes….Given the unlawfulness occurring in that city….Any time a police officer tells a crowd to move, clear the street, disperse, etc…it would behoove those with brains to do as instructed.

          • Rational_Db8

            Wrong, they can set anything on fire that is flammable and happens to be close enough when the stun grenade goes off to be set on fire. That includes dry leaves, etc. And this happens to be America, where people have the Constitutional right to peaceful protest – if we all just follow your advice, and no one was willing to participate in peaceful protest, just did whatever an authority figure ordered them to do without question, we’d be a police state and not America. The police are required to follow the law themselves, and when they give unlawful orders, it should be noted and addressed in a reasonable fashion.

          • Phil Bronner

            240 plus arrests…..only 8 of those Ferguson residents…. so much for peaceful protests…and if the orders were “unlawful”…that means criminal…The police are charged with maintaining order….that’s what they were doing.

          • jacquesdaspy

            put every spin you can think of to justify the thug trying to kill that officer and not succeeding………..you probably think the rest of america is blind to the truth here. we are not. this is a community of degenerates and crazy people who need to get a job, a life, and quit thugging, attacking, looting and shooting ON A REGULAR BASIS.

          • Rational_Db8

            ??? Did you mean your reply for someone else? I’ve nowhere tried to justify a thug trying to kill an officer. And the comment of mine you did reply to had nothing to do with the officer or Brown, but only with our rights as citizens to peacefully protest over whatever issue we desire, and the necessity for citizens to insist that police also follow the law and Constitution. You have a problem with that somehow?

          • Richard Blaine

            LMAO so far they’ve peacefully burned at least one business, peacefully looted multiple others and peacefully shot several people. All over a worthless thug who’s last documented act prior to being sent to whatever reward awaits strong arm robbing thugs was to rob a store and then walk down the middle of the street with the stolen merchandise like a drooling moron. You, safe behind your keyboard, want the police to use more restraint??? How about the looting, shooting, arsonists you claim are peaceful protesters use some restraint?

          • Richard Blaine

            They are trying to stop rioting and it’s comical that you are worried about accidental fires from tears gas or flash bangs and not about the intentional ones from your ‘peaceful protesters’ Molotov cocktails and other intentional acts of arson.

            I agree Phil, just like Police Officer Wilson told Michael Brown to clear the Street, or get out of the Street, but Mr Brown being such a Bully, He had no respect for a Law Officer with a Badge on, I kind of wonder whether he obeyed or respected his Parents or not,”

            In New Orleans, the customary post disaster recreation is not called “looting” because the term is racially insensitive.

            Bullshyte. They have been innocent in some cases, in others they clearly were not. There is video – and I posted links to a few of them – where the police attacked peaceful protesters with no provocation, and even fired on journalists & news crews, There were other times where they stood back and allowed looting. Then of course there were also plenty of times where some of the protesters were not peaceful, and threw Molotov cocktails, etc., and completely deserved to be arrested and charged, and those crowds justified being dispersed. Where the police acted appropriately I fully support them. Where they didn’t, they need to be seriously held to account.

          • Richard Blaine

            The police should probably just stand down and fly you in to handle it for them. Watching a few videos seems to have made you an expert on the big picture down there. I’m sure you’d get those shooting, looting, Molotov cocktail chucking peaceful (LMAO) protesters under control in a hurry.

            Yes it could happen, but what are the odds that a unthreatened officer shoots a person in the back in broad day light …. Is everyone just stupid!!!! Do all you pissed off people really think it’s just that simple! How can we allow our media to push this stuff on the ignorant, why are they not on trial for creating a bias instead of allowing the investigation to be done. And sorry, the police department that was being attacked from all sides had every right to defend themselves by releasing that video showing what kind of person that officer was dealing with that day! He was not dealing with a damn saint, he was dealing with thug bully…you think he put on his priest robe after robbing the store to walk down the middle of the road to preach. No, he was a bad ass and that’s what they do. They walk down the middle of the road like they own it and dare you to blow the horn at them or even hit them.

          • Fiona1933

            so the penalty for stealing from a store is daylight execution? What is wrong with you? Even if the guy was a serial killer, he is still given due process. You are talking of mob justice. This is the same thing that used to get black people routinely killed just for looking a white man in the face. “That n***** was uppity” they would say. You are saying essentially the same thing. Due process for the officer, none for a man who steals cigars. Think about what you are saying. Indeed the media have created a similar myth: the point is it doesnt matter. The US police are out of control.

          • Steve Giardini

            The penalty for acting like an animal and threatening the life of anyone who is armed is to be shot before ( the animal ) has a chance to get close enough to get access to the gun.

          • guest233

            No but the incidence at the store does shed light on Michael Browns frame of mind as well as his ‘thuggery. And what got him killed was assaulting a police officer and GOING FOR HIS GUN! And then attempting to rush a police officer.I have no doubt that had Brown not been shot, the officr would have died at the hands of Michael Brown as he would have taken the officers gun and shot him.

          • Wiggz

            Stupidity. Michael Brown would certainly have gotten his ‘due process’ for the theft if he had allowed himself to be taken into custody when the officer stopped him. That never happened. Brown got ‘uppity’ by physically assaulting the police officer (not once but twice) and even trying to wrestle away his gun. In the end, the ‘gentle giant’ was able to put an officer who had never once in his career drawn his gun so in fear for his life that he felt compelled to defend himself. Brown got the only ‘due process’ he was willing to accept.

            As I watched the african american community rob, vandalize, and set fire to the town of Ferguson – most celebrating rather than expressing anger or frustration – it wasn’t the police whom looked out of control to me…

          • Richard Blaine

            Flash bangs and gas canisters are a lot less likely to cause a fire than the protesters molotov cocktails. So far the supposedly non-violent protesters have set multiple fires, burned at least one store, looted others and shot several people. Come near my occupied house with a Molotov cocktail and I’ll put you down. I won’t be using rubber bullets either. It’s time to take a lesson from Chicago’s ex Mayor Daley and start shooting arsonists. Arsonist pose an imminent danger to the lives of multiple people and deadly force should against them is completely justifiable.

          Let’s be at least somewhat rational, here, . . . let’s look at the overall picture, . . . with the destruction which has been in occurrence, by what appearance of logic could anyone of sound mind come up with arguments in favor of peaceful protesters, . . . have you watched the videos of bombed out, burned out, ripped out buildings? For thousands of years frozen in time past, the looters would have been dropped, . . . in a hurry, . . . no discussion would be needed, . . . Now, in this age of abundance and tolerance, very many would embrace the purveyors of mayhem, . . . strange children, . . .

          “Protesters” only have a right to gather and protest, when they are not interfering with someone ELSE’s rights.

Personally, I think the police have shown remarkable restraint..much to the detriment of the businesses, and law abiding in the area!

          • Rational_Db8

            There are also videos available which show police attacking clearly peaceful protesters – and news crews with NO protesters around them and clear press cameras and gear. So clearly you haven’t seen all the videos that are out there. And if you’d read my post, you would KNOW that I’ve also lambasted the police for NOT taking action against looters and those clearly damaging property. They seem to be either over reacting or under reacting, and rarely getting it right.

          • Gregory Marquez

            Doesn’t matter Rational, the bottom line here is that the majority of the black community continues to promote an environment of hate/disrespect for police, authority figures and other races. Why? It’s simple, it boils down to entitlement for the wrongs in the past(slavery and the civil rights movement). The black community through this sense of entitlement is now the most racist people in America. Sadly, they defeated racism only to be it’s number one ally and use it as form of justification for lawless behavior or to justify their hatred for the cops. To prove my point look at the comments below from “Buckwheat”. I don’t have the answer but I do know that disrespecting the cops because you were raised with a sense of entitlement from a culture that promotes violence can only end in violence.

          • jacquesdaspy

            Slavery is a poor excuse. Slavery still exists in Africa and is still controlled and operated by Arab Muslims because the Koran designates the “Black” Africans as subhuman. Slavery is not even illegal in most Western (Black) Africa.

            In the US, slavery is a choice to embrace the JFK/LBJ “lifestyle.” There are many white people that endorse this form of slavery, Strangely, they refer to themselves as “liberals?”

            you are 100% accurate

          • Rational_Db8

            I pretty much agree with you. That still doesn’t justify actual police abuses. In fact we can thank the “Great Society” and liberal policies for the
            destruction of poor families and the massive inner city problems we have
            today. Decades ago, in the 60’s or the Jim Crow era blacks didn’t have nearly the entitlement/victim view of life that so many in the inner cities currently do.

            Just read a little Thomas Sowell on the issue — he’s not only a highly respected economist who grew up in Harlem and dropped out of high school, but went on later to graduate with high honors from Harvard — he also happens to be black. His work is excellent, ties in historical facts, and is well worth reading. Here are just a few examples:

            The welfare state: Rhetoric vs. reality Thomas Sowell compares liberals’ claims about blacks to hard cold facts

            Liberalism Versus Blacks

            There is no question that liberals do an impressive job of expressing concern for blacks. But do the intentions expressed in their words match the actual consequences of their deeds?

            San Francisco is a classic example of a city unexcelled in its liberalism. But the black population of San Francisco today is less than half of what it was back in 1970, even though the city’s total population has grown.

            Severe restrictions on building housing in San Francisco have driven rents and home prices so high that blacks and other people with low or moderate incomes have been driven out of the city. The same thing has happened in a number of other California communities dominated by liberals.

            Liberals try to show their concern for the poor by raising the level of minimum wage laws. Yet they show no interest in hard evidence that minimum wage laws create disastrous levels of unemployment among young blacks in this country, as such laws created high unemployment rates among young people in general in European countries.

            The black family survived centuries of slavery and generations of Jim Crow, but it has disintegrated in the wake of the liberals’ expansion of the welfare state. Most black children grew up in homes with two parents during all that time but most grow up with only one parent today.

            Liberals have pushed affirmative action, supposedly for the benefit of blacks and other minorities. But two recent factual studies show that affirmative action in college admissions has led to black students with every qualification for success being artificially turned into failures by being mismatched with colleges for the sake of racial body count….

            The Problem Is Liberalism, Not Racism

            The states with the most segregated public schools are epicenters of liberalism

            Yes, I get it already – you’re an idiot who is unable to comprehend what you are reading. Where did I EVER say that Brown didn’t rob the store owner? Oh, that’s right, nowhere. In fact in this very thread multiple times I’ve pointed out that very fact. And the FACT is that neither of us know for certain that Brown attacked the officer- but from what facts have been released that looks quite likely. All of which has NOTHING to do with my comments that you’re replying to.

            Get a clue.

          • Rational_Db8

            Dude, you need to stop arguing with yourself – you’re certainly NOT replying to anything I’ve been saying.

            Or are you advocating for police abuse to be ignored when it actually occurs? And before you get your panties in a wad again, you might bother noticing that I’m not in ANY way referring to the incident between the officer and Brown. For that specific incident, we don’t know all the facts, but the ones we do know certainly imply that the officer was likely justified in his actions. So don’t come back with more crap about Brown – that’s NOT the issue being discussed.

        The fact that he shoplifted isn’t relevant.
        I pointed out that Brown demonstrated thuggish, threatening behavior toward a store clerk . I speculated that someone who has this kind of character could have behaved in a similarly threatening way toward the officer – escalating the situation to where the officer thought he was in jeopardy.

            What I have a problem with is all the “thug” supporters creating an atmosphere where those who support someone who is charged with enforcing the law, cannot publicly show their support becaue of terroristic threats that Holder overlooks and doesn’t speak to. This is AMERICA and ALL people should be able to demonstrate. My take is that Holder didn’t necessarily come to ensure calm or a thorough investigation as much as to pander to a community that is willing to support a thug just to lynch a cop for the misdeeds of their ancestors 200 years ago.

          • Michael Mingus

            Let a +6 foot 290 pound man wrestle with you then after running away from you turn around and start running toward you and see if you don’t feel intimidated. Even a trained officer will assume that the individual means to do bodily harm, armed or not. There have been too many records of unarmed individuals who have been shot continuing to advance toward leos hence the number of shots fired. Someone of the assailant’s size charging at a leo deserves to be shot until he quits charging.

          • Michelle

            What’s the evidence that Brown ran towards the officer? Once Brown starts running why does the officer chance? You have a point – he was HUGE. Is it possible that Brown stopped and put his hands up like his friend claimed, but the officer was moving towards him, injured and misinterpreted the action as aggressive? Why does Brown have to be completely in the wrong and the officer completely in the right?

            It’s just kind of disheartening to me that people are refusing to even consider that Brown shouldn’t have died just because he shoplifted.

          • Michelle Harte

            Obviously you don’t read the news. The cop had a concussion and half of his eye socket was cracked open because of this rabid monster. The kid with him lied which was just found out about the cop shooting him in the back and there is proof now that the “gentle giant thug” actually grabbed Wilson’s gun and tried to shoot him, thank God for forensics. There is also a video now that shows the “hands up don’t shoot” was collaborated by a group of kids at the scene that were discussing how to lie about this and what to say. This was no Trayvon.

          • Michelle

            The fact that the cop was injured in the face only supports my point. All facts are not available. The investigation is not complete. The bottom line is that as a society we shouldn’t be okay with extrajudicial killings, whether the victim is a rosy cheeked innocent or a scary bully (which evidence strongly suggests Michael Brown was). Especially when the person killed is young enough to turn their life around. I don’t want a world where white kids who get in trouble are just as likely to be shot as black kids. I want a world where lives don’t get lost so casually.

          • Oakhollow8

            After injuring the police officer (assault with bodily injury) , then running away (Evading), then by accounts and evidence advancing toward the police officer in a threatening manner without hands being raised in a surrender gesture(forensic evidence from autopsy shows entrance wound incompatible with the arms raised theory). Of course the officer is going to fire on the individual and should if he felt threatened.(he had already been assaulted by the individual once and there was the probable threat from the individuals partner to consider).

          • Oakhollow8

            He died for being stupid. Wrestling with the police officer for his weapon, fracturing the police officer’s orbit, rvading the police officer then turning toward the police officer, advancing toward the police officer in a threatening manner. No it is not possible for him to have his hands up in a surrender gesture as the wounds to his arms evidence.

          • jacquesdaspy

            As we are told by the experts, people don’t shoot people, guns do. Perhaps, when Mr. Brown attempted to accquire control over the gun, the gun too exception and expressed it’s anger the only way it knew how. Certainly, the TV pundits can understand that, (and a few women in congress)

            Well I’m 100% black, honey, so trump that. There is no reason to connect supporting the demonstrations with being on welfare except racism. Find another one and I’ll concede the point.

          • Richard Blaine

            Blacks are over represented among welfare recipients relative to their percentage of the population…..of course blacks are also over represented in every single violent offender category in the FBI UCR too. As big Mike could probably tell you if he wasn’t in the middle of a dirt nap, blacks are 13% of the population and in 2012 committed 55% of all robberies and 49.4% of all murders.

            http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2012/crime-in-the-u.s.-2012/tables/43tabledatadecoverviewpdf

          • Michelle

            First, this is a discussion about welfare, not violent crime, but I want to point out the table you reference is an arrest table, not even a conviction table. This doesn’t tell you what % of murder and manslaughter was committed by blacks, just what percentage of arrestees were black. Keep in mind only around 62% of murders are cleared by law enforcement (i.e., the rest go unresolved/unsolved). And don’t forget there is suggestive evidence that blacks face greater odds of being wrongly convicted. 63% of those cleared by the Innocence Project using DNA evidence are black. Even if blacks are committing 50% of murders, that’s still a higher percentage than chance would dictate. But, anyway, crime stats aren’t relevant.

            Let’s talk welfare. Welfare is for poor people. Congress has made sure that only poor people can get government assistance – everything from housing assistance to food stamps to Medicaid. Welfare serves a purpose – it keeps kids and the unemployable from starving. If black people are “over represented” among welfare recipients, it’s because they’re overrepresented among the poor. Blacks are 13% of US population, but make up about 22% of the poor. About 3/4 of TANF recipients were children in 2010. In half of recipient households only the children got welfare. In fact in 2011 only 1.2% of black adults were getting cash welfare. So the association between being a black adult and being on welfare is extremely weak.

            If you don’t think characterizing a group of people (blacks, men, women, Christians) by what 1-3% of them is doing isn’t an “ism”, I’m not sure what we have to talk about.

            I don’t think this is the first time that Michael Brown has went shop-lifting, it really makes You and addict if You just get away with it one time, I think Mr Brown had a guilty conscience about stealing when approached by Police Officer Wilson, So if You don’t get caught stealing, does that mean Your not a criminal,”

            Mfr Brown had his friend Mr Johnson with him the morning of the shooting, could it be that Michael Brown was like Showing-Off in front of his Friend, Like,’ Watch Me,” When You are big as Mr Brown, You don back away from anything, I guess some City’s cannot afford to have Two Police Officers per car, but then on the other hand, Mr Brown could have been shot Twelve times,’

        • jacquesdaspy

          Guns shoot people, people (including police) don’t shoot people.” The gun, used it’s only resource to reach out to Mr. Brown. Failing the first time, it tried again, and again. Automatically, as it’s education dictated.

      • Barrustio

        Seems to me the “stop” was pretty effective. If a 300 pounder is rushing me I’m not going wait till he hits me, I will consider his weight alone “being armed” apparently he thought so too when it worked on the store clerk….it just went to his head and thought it would work on everybody. Bad choice….I’m sure eventually stories will surface from locals as to what he really was and I believe it won’t be pretty. Some will probably find his absence comforting.

        • Elspeth Moran

          Not to mention that Brown had already tried to get Wilson’s gun and had punched him in the eye, breaking his eye socket bone. Which probably accounts for why Wilson’s first few shots almost missed his target.

          • John

            To me it looked like Police Officer Wilson was trying not to kill Him, but to slow Michael Brown down by shooting Him 3 or 4 times in the right arm and shoulder, and Being the size of Mr Brown, the glazing bullets on his right side had little effect of slowing Him down, so the last two bullets was to his right eye and top of his head, Could I be wrong?

          • Michelle

            Police officers are not trained to shoot to “slow people down.” I very much doubt he was aiming for the arm and shoulder. It’s much more likely he missed.

          • John

            If I was a Police Officer and alone, and this large Person weighting 100 pounds more then me lunging at me like 10 feet away, I would shoot to kill, but as the story goes, they were 35 feet apart when the shooting started, that would give You time to wound a person before getting to You, and hopefully he would fall to the ground, If I was the Police Chief, no Officer would ever ride alone in his squad car, this is 2014, not 1970.

          • Michelle

            Thanks for the info. I totally agree about the riding alone. No normal sized person should be in a situation of having to confront a 300 lb man alone. What if he had to confront someone who was armed? The cop probably wouldn’t have survived. So many things are wrong with what happened.

          • Oakhollow8

            Even more important a question to consider is if the Police officer had been female? Could the individual have wrested the police officers weapon from her or injured er more severely?

          • jacquesdaspy

            Coulda been his recently acquired poor eyesight?

          • Oakhollow8

            It is possible that the injury to the eye socket had affected his vision and hence his aim.

        • NoTea4Me

          It might not come out in public. Those in the ‘hood who speak the truth stands a chance that they’ll “end up in ditches”.

      • dixie68

        How about non judicial killing for busting the bones around the policeman’s eye? The policeman had a right to shoot him in the head at that moment, and should have.

      • Joseph

        I do endorse shooting a 300 lb man who is charging at you after already having battered you and attempted to take away your gun, thereby demonstrating an intent to cause bodily injury or death. If that turns out to be what actually happened, then the cop would have been justified. If not, then the courts will deal with him. But just like the Treyvon case, it’s the emotional hype and hysteria which most people feed off of. Facts be damned.

      • Rational_Db8

        Sorry, but Brown broke the eye orbit bones in the officer’s face – he was NOT shot for shoplifting – at this point it seems he was shot because the officer had good reason to fear for his life as Brown charged him after already having broken his facial bones. And there are at least 12 eyewitnesses who’s statements support that account, while there are only 4 that do not – and those 4 contradict themselves and include the robbery accomplice too.

        What’s more, character and demeanor clearly have a huge amount to do with how any police officer, including the most competent, treats someone. They are certainly going to approach a person who seems innocent totally differently than someone they know to match a criminal suspect, and quite rightly so. Not to mention that Brown’s character and demeanor is certainly going to be different if he’s trying to avoid arrest for the crime he just committed, versus if he were an innocent person.

      • NoTea4Me

        The alternatives MrRedNeckP- presents are misleading and misdirecting. It’s a bit like “the alternatives are agree with me or support wife beating. By the way, how often do you beat your wife?”

        Let’s look at what we know:
        The officer involved has a perfect record in the force. That’s pretty tough to do these days, with cellphones, lawyers and strategizing criminals all ready to jump on anything that looks can be framed to look like misconduct. He overcame growing up in a single parent family, really no family, to do something good for other people. He could have chosen other paths.

        The deceased had just robbed a store. He also has an extensive social media profile (probably censored by now) showing him with substantial quantities of drugs (not smoking one joint), piles of cash etc.

        We don’t have 100% certainty about the following, but it all fits in with the hard facts we have.
        Mr. Brown composed and performed songs boasting about murder, drugs and the criminal lifestyle.
        We don’t have a clear profile about exactly what he posted where, and whether some of the info is being confused with other people. There’s reason for that; unlike the officer, his social media account wasn’t clear, direct and under his real name.
        Mr. Brown has just violently taken a box of mini-cigars from a convenience store. What would you do with a full box of Swishers? They are not something anyone would want to smoke two dozen of.
        They’re used to smoke drugs. Mr Brown had at least marajuana in his system, and was also known to use Lean. Lean, over time, causes one to be aggressive and paranoid. Marijuana today is available in varieties vastly stronger than old hippies used, and hard-core users may buy the synthetic varieties or mix the two. Mr Brown was also into drinking. That the the Lean can be seen at the memorial put up by his friends.
        The result is altered brain chemistry, making one already into the thug life more likely to act on it and try the same takedown that worked on people smaller than Mr Brown’s 6’3″ 275+ # size on an over 30, smaller, slower cop.

        Is it more lilkely that Mr Brown tried and almost succeeded in doing a gun grab on the officer who stopped him right the robbery, and then, after the first try and the officer’s inability to subdue him right away, charged toward him for a second try, and his thug bud with a 3 page rap sheet invented lying narrative to attack the cop with
        Or
        an officer with a perfect history after working in a hostile neighborhood decided to randomly shoot someone in front of a street full of probably hostile witnesses, in full daylight, while stone sober?

        You may think that police officers are all somehow criminals. Like racism, that idea colors your thinking and makes you unable to see the truth.

        The officer was attacked while trying to get out of his car. He was allegedly struck in the face by Wilson breaking bones in the eye socket. (Felony) Wilson then tried to grab the officers gun (felony). Wilson then fled from the Police SUV, stopping 35 to 40 feet later. He then charged the officer who feared for his life and fired until the threat was stopped. Did I mention that Wilson was 6-4 and 292 pounds. You try fighting someone that big and tell me you’re not in fear for your life. Don’t let your grizzley bear mouth overload your humming bird but!

      I have never hated black people before, but after seeing and hearing all this, black people are really starting to scare me. People on the websites are wanting to “KILL THE POLICE” and “KILL WHITE PEOPLE”. They are throwing rocks and bottles at the police who are trying to restore order in the freakin town.
      At the very least, this is perpetuating the stereotype that blacks are violent, dangerous, and unpredictable. Most white people don’t want black people in their neighborhoods based on this fear.
      I know this is only a SUBSECTION of the black community, but it still keeps the stereotypes going STRONG.

      • Michelle

        That’s a really horrible attitude. That’s about as fair as me hating white people because of some of the more racist comments I see on boards. Individual black people have no more control of other individual black people than individual white people have of each other. You’re going to hate me in California and my family in the Caribbean because of what a few people in Missouri are doing?

        • Tj Long

          I’m sorry, but that’s how I feel. I don’t want to hurt anyone, but after all I have heard and seen, some black people are making me a little nervous. When I hear comments like “Let’s kill all white people”, and “Kill all the Pigs (police), it makes me think twice about being around American blacks. I know the militant ones are only a subsection, but that group makes me nervous. I would NEVER be a police officer because I couldn’t handle the disrespect the police get from some American blacks on a dialy basis. We’re all a little racist. Hopefully everyone will learn to straighten up one day so we can come together. Until then, we are divided.

          • Michelle

            Look – I get what you’re saying. That group makes me nervous too. I avoid THOSE people like the plague because they’re nutjobs. But you’re saying you want to avoid being around “American blacks” because of that small number of people. That is racist, but kinda harmless too. You and I may never get to be friends, but the world won’t end. And goodness knows I’m not perfect enough to judge you for how you feel.

            When it comes to cops I think it’s more complicated than you’re describing. Any time cops see the community they police as the enemy instead of the people they need to protect you see these kinds of problems. It’s the same all over the world. The problem in America is that you have this racial component which I think is a red herring. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/aug/25/critics-see-racial-double-standard-in-coverage-of-/?utm_source=RSS_Feed&utm_medium=RSS
            I’m just as outraged by Dillon Taylor as any other unwarranted police killing. Instead of prompting an examination of how police handle confrontations with potential suspects, Dillon’s death is becoming fodder for more race based dead horse beating – in this case liberal media bias and “reverse racism.” Dillon isn’t dead because of media bias. He’s dead because there’s something wrong with how police are trained to handle perceived threat.

          • Richard Blaine

            The homicide offender rate is, per capita, seven times higher for blacks than for whites. He or she would frankly be an idiot not to profile. Even Jesse Jackson profiles:

            “There is nothing more painful to me at this stage of my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery, then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.” – Jesse Jackson

            http://www.bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/htus8008.pdf

            Page 11

            Lots of blacks profile blacks too and damn near every lilly white liberal who has ever seen a black secretly profiles.

          • Richard Blaine

            Blacks should make you nervous. They are over represented in every single violent offender category in the FBI UCR. Even Jesse Jackson profiles blacks. He said:

            “There is nothing more painful to me at this stage of my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery, then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.”

            If Jesse Jackson profiles them you damn well better believe you should to.

            When it comes to robbery and murder, in 2012 blacks at less than 13% of the population were 54.9% of all robbery offenders and 49.4% of all murder offenders.

            http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2012/crime-in-the-u.s.-2012/tables/43tabledatadecoverviewpdf

            Statistically the per capita homicide offender rate for blacks is a massive seven times higher than for whites.

            http://www.bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/htus8008.pdf

            Page 11

            This quite literally means that all things being equal, any given black is seven times more likely to commit murder than any given white.

            My advice: PROFILE.

          I suggest white take the lead of Jesse Jackson who said:

      The police should step back and avoid any conflict or be labeled racially insensitive. There is always the policy of avoidance as outlined in the Watts Protocol. It is, of course, necessary to properly plan as the fire department has to be included in the implementation.

    It’s amazing how there willing to destroy an entire comunity to bring about the change that is so badly needed and how things will much better. The second they are brought to understand they have to change who us the anger and the hate excellerate when the excuse for there new TV upgrade the new laptop is not the pillar of the community he was made out to be they scream cover up and destroy what’s left or what’s been replaced. Amazing how the liberal Gov. Making the call is already to leave the police holding the bag . Liberals will turn on there own mothers to avoid taking responsibility for anything. Seems to be a shortage of truth and accountability amongst the liberals but not in life the circumstances of life their next action in the next cover up will hold them publicly accountable for the actions they took that made things worse and they tried to avoid or refused to man up and let the truth out and be held accountable . This applies to Obama and his entire administration of demonic deceivers liars cheats the hole nine yards. It will happen. I believe the examples been set.

    • gauge

      So because Brown is black he can do no wrong @ Racial Terrorist Al Sharpton. Black people can do not wrong in yors eyes right Jesse? Crime is crime you educated fools.

  • justsayin

    Media bias?

    • CarlMM

      Reports are confused if the cop knew of Brown’s prior robbery that day and Brown fit the description so the cop used that info to target Brown. BUT, the issue is that Brown KNEW that cops had to be looking for him so when the cop confronted him, his adrenaline was high since he didn’t want to go to jail, again and as a repeat offender, or as some reports, in prison for the third strike. What was Brown’s mindset? Was he high too? He hated cops so any cop confronting him would be in danger since he was so large. Did this “boy” go after the cop’s gun? If so, that should end all debate on his death since if Brown would have taken the gun, he would have used it against the cop.

      Release all prior arrests of this “boy.” How many crimes did this “boy” commit that he got away with? Eventually he would have ended up in prison.

      A Black neighbor, who was having issues with her upstairs Black neighbors, told me that there are two types of Blacks: “Blacks and Niqqers. They are Niqqers!” She is a hard working mother of two, a school secretary, and part-time at Penny’s. Her neighbors are a mother, her 30-year old son, and his 3-year old son whose mother is a meth/crack head. They are up all night with the little boy running around like he’s on something too. They smoke pot, at least, and maybe more. The mother was on unemployment but that ran out so now she’s claiming for SS as her son is on SSI and maybe SS on disability. He’s with his friends in the parking lot working on cars so he’s faking his disability. They automatically think that being Black is a reason to be on disability and if they don’t give it to them, “they’re racist.”

      You can’t fire a Black, evict one, scold one, order one, advise one, or anything or you will be labeled a racist and they’re more emboldened to do anything they want since they now have Obama and Holder on their side.

      • justsayin

        Yes, all possibilities, the thing is though that the rioters in Ferguson did not wait for the facts to unfold. Instead, they immediately took to the streets in full-on riot mode. Obviously using the incident as an excuse to loot, burn, and assault non-black citizens. Then we have racial terrorist, Albert Sharpton, shake-down artist, Jesse Jackson, racialist, Eric Holder, Taliban chieftain, Obama, and the Communists in the media fanning the flames of civil unrest.

        They even published the police officer’s home address for Pete’s sake!

        • Brarenda

          Let the world see these Blacks and those that defend them. Most all countries don’t have this problem but Muslims have done the same rioting, like in France when they burned hundreds of cars a night, and got away with it since the government didn’t want to arrest Muslims, like now with our Blacks. Not PC.

            Right, and he has almost gotten America, into a Communist antichrist nation, where he was determined to turn her, from long before the election, which he stole with the assistance of America’s Communist,.. But, there is one thing that he has not considered, GOD and HIS people will reign, it may not be in this age, but in the renewed age when we will have a new heaven and a new earth, Revelation 21. Obama cannot stop that.

            I do realize all America does not want to hear this, but it is important that we know it, because it is coming, that is the most positive act that we can be sure of. The future seems to be very dark, right now but we can rest assured that GOD is in control.

          • BS77

            Over 16000 people were murdered in the US in one year…mostly by gun violence, mostly inner city black on black killings…..some 75 people were shot in Chicago during one week, 11 died….but there were no riots, marches or demonstrations….just crickets in the background…I am sick of the endless garbage on TV about this unfortunate shoot ing….but I feel the cop was in fear of being hurt or killed in a struggle for his gun and he did what he had to do to protect himself. It is another awful event in the ongoing tsunami of gun violence in our troubled nation.

          • BS77

            If Mr. Brown had been at work, or in school, or at home NONE of this would have happened. If he hadnt robbed the store, walked down the middle of the highway or resisted arrest, NONE of this would have happened. Advice: For God’s sake… finish high school, go to college, get a job, go to work, take care of your kids, paint your house…stop hanging out smoking and drinking, attacking people and robbing stores… quit blaming your situation on others.

          • Otis

            That used to be a normal life, and when I was that age, working full-time and saving for college kept me so busy I wasn’t getting into trouble or being a thug. Good advice, BS77, but not sure those values are instilled in that subculture in that age group.

            I had 3 months off between graduating high school and starting college. I spent that time mowing lawns and flipping burgers at minimum wage to earn spending money for the fall semester. And reading the assigned books on the summer reading list I’d been given to prepare for freshman English.

            NOT doing drugs, robbing convenience stores, throttling the clerks and shoving them into the potato chip racks, mouthing-off to cops or beating them, or just “hanging out.”

            Brown was a thug with an “attitude,” looking for trouble. Not much surprise that he found it.

        • Michelle

          This is flat out false. Check your facts. The people who have been blocking and confronting the looters are the nonviolent BLACK protesters. Cops have stayed out of it because they don’t want to make a bad situation worse. You are too determined to make this a black=bad, white/cop=good issue. Obviously it means nothing to you that black leaders, black community members and even Brown’s parents have been denouncing the looting since anything positive that comes out of black mouths is to be ignored by your reckoning.

            Totally irrelevant. And even if you’re right, what about the rest of the people in the neighborhood with no dog in the fight.

        I agree. What was the demeanor of Brown? He thought they were coming to arrest him. He had to get away and was fighting to do just that. If he went for the cops gun, and if he come towards the cop like a wild bear, he then deserved to be stopped with lethal force.

        Now Sharpton’s Mob Squad is out for a lynching. I’m watching Trayvon Martin’s attorney now with Brown’s mother. Anything other than an arrest of the cop and immediate lynching from the nearest tree.

          Trayvon Martin was also a thug, whom George Zimmerman confronted. Martin tried to kill Zimmerman by banging his head on the ground, and Zimmerman defended himself by shooting Martin. He was acquitted of any wrongdoing.

            I listened to that Trial daily, The Police told Zimmerman to stay in his truck, but that didn’t happen, Zimmerman got out of his truck and walk around behind that apartment house, and that is when Trayvon Martin walked out from behind the shadows and asked Zimmerman why he was following him, and that’s when the fight started on the sidewalk, and that’s when Residents saw them out there windows, and testified in court,

          • JayWye

            Either you didn’t listen very well,or the media you listened to omitted some critical facts(very likely).
            Or both.
            If you had READ the article I linked to,you’d know that Tray’s GF Jeantel testified -in court- that Tray had made it all the way home,and then decided to go after Z-man. that’s a 70 yard backtrack. (if you look at the map in the article!) the phone time stamps support this.
            POLICE did not tell Z-man to stay in the truck,the -dispatcher-,a civilian with NO authority did that,and after Z-man had already left his SUV. It’s not relevant,because he had every right to do that. His “following” never got him anywhere near Trayvon,until Tray came BACK and blindsided him,knocking Z-man to the ground for the “ground and pound”.

            Read the Miami Herald article and LEARN something.

          • Richard Blaine

            The police didn’t tell Zimmerman anything, some dispatcher did and Zimmerman had no obligation to listen to him. The case was a train wreck for the prosecution. The evidence was overwhelming that after referring to Zimmerman with a racial slur, Trayvon went looking for him, violently battered him and slammed his head on the ground. Total evidence Zimmerman started any fight with or ever battered Trayvon = 0. Had Trayvon just gone to the house where he was staying instead of going back to look for the “cracker” he’d still be alive today to run his jewelry business out of his backpack.

        Regarding your last paragraph, you can do what I (and so many others) have done, and that is to move to an all white community where the worst you’re going to deal with is the “white trash”; but at least THEY aren’t going to attack you because of your skin color!The reality of interracial crime is that the overwhelming majority of it is black on white. Of course you won’t see that in the mainstream press, but educated people are paying attention. If ignorant white liberals want to keep putting theirselves in harms way by trying to co-exist with people who were “raised” to hate them, I’m good with that! In fact, watching a white liberal getting co-cocked in the “knock-out game” would be fun to watch! As for me, I’ll keep my distance and my 38 semi-automatic ready!

          See Colin Flaherty, White Girl She Bleed A Lot, about the black teenage gangs attacking non-blacks.

          The problem is that social Marxist policies bring the parasites into the country, Civil Rights Laws prevent communities from keeping them out, and in the end, only the feudalist oligarchs (primarily social Marxists) have the money to really protect themselves and their children by living apart from the hordes of third world imbeciles and criminals.

      They say this Brown guy had warrants that might gave have him the reason to resist arrest. If that was the case, sounds to me, Brown clearly didn’t have much intelligence. Chances are, depending on what he did, if he had just went ahead and cooperated with the police and did what he had to do to get the warrants cleared up, its most likely he would’ve did a few months time and been back out on the streets before year’s end. And most importantly: HE STILL WOULD’VE BEEN ALIVE!!!!

    Until this nation makes a solemn decision to pursue truth once again, it will continue on its breakneck suicide course. Truth is no longer allowed in the public square, and from our highest office down, can no longer be expected. That is a formula for disaster.

    It goes back to the election of obama, and that goes back to multigenerational control of the public schools. We need to reverse the immediate political reality, and then get to work undoing the generations of structural damage. I’m not sure it’s possible at this point. If it is, it will take the Lord’s blessing to do.

      BS. It goes back to the concentration of power in the hands of our Social Marxist overlords in the media, which began a century ago. The way these liars portray race relations, play on white guilt, favor black interests over white interests, enforce the totalitarian thought and speech regime known as political correctness, etc. These factors predate and are far more causal regarding our current predicament than Obama’s electoral victory. The problems this nation faces run much deeper than Obama. Obama is not even the tip of the iceberg. He’s a fleck of dirt on the tip of the iceberg.

  • johnlac

    Now just imagine if this were some white kid that did what Brown did. Strongarm rob a convenience store. Then saunter out of the store like nothing happened. Walk down the middle of a street. First ignore the warnings of a police officer to get back on the sidewalk, and then rush the policeman and assault him while trying to get his gun. Then you end up with six bullets in you, and you’re quite dead. How many white people would feel sympathy for a white thug who acted like Brown and got himself killed? Can we say, except for the thug’s parents, zero white people would be upset.

    • mtmla

      It’s interesting, Odumbo took time off from his vacation to give his opinion on the Brown’s shooting matter, yet he was nowhere to be seeing or heard during Benghazi. To this moment nobody knows where was Obama during the Benghazi attack.

    I don’t recall seeing anything about the dozens,maybe hundreds, of stores being put out of business.What about the small shop owners who needed the business generated in these little stores? How will they feed their families? What about the local people who make a living as employees in these little shops?How will they pay their bills with no jobs?
    Many of these small stores will never reopen, the owners will depart the area for good.New potential shop owners will be scared off,need to be crazy to invest your money & safety in a town like this!
    Where will local people go to shop if there are no longer stores in the area?
    How will the town pay for basic services without the money previously collected as sales tax from these local stores that no longer exist?
    Think the Yellow Journalists care? Not a chance. All they are interested in is generating activity,selling their product & making money!
    Heck,These Yellow Journalists have started wars with misleading stories.Misinformation is their stock-in-trade,riots in Ferguson are small change compared to the wars started over false newspaper stories!

    • PhillipGaley

      And now, another night of rioting? “stores will never reopen”?
      Boy! Howdy! You sure got that right, Sherlock, . . . you ain’t as dumb as y’look.
      You’ve heard about Detroit, and South Central LA? Well, to see how much insurance payments must be, the insurance companies follow mathematical calculations of formulas which are in continual development, and to the greatest extent, watching to see what the locals are doing—are they leaving, or, are sufficient numbers of them staying to rebuild? And so, . . . for business activity in too much of Detroit, in South Central LA, and other such burned out, bombed out localities, the rates are higher than any sensible businessman is able to pay—whether to build and to begin a business, or even, for simple day-to-day expenses in an established one. And without insurance to cover their loans, banks will not loan the money. So, beyond say, a convenience store or two, or other such, for the higher grossing businesses which are able to sustain neighborhoods, last night, the decisions came into reality, . . . in places which seem to have been destined to be so affected, that’s the way things must remain—burned out, bombed out localities, . . . Of course, the people who DO remain, could, at any time, pick up the trash, and build something, but, . . . they won’t. No business can sustain where such as Michael Brown (in one YT video, Al Sharpton speaks of him thus: “the gentle giant that, he was.”) feels free to simply walk in and grab merchandise, shoving the clerk. If insurance sees these latest destructive occurrences in Ferguson as an anomaly, maybe rates will remain as they are; but if otherwise and rates then rise, well, Ferguson is toast, . . . and no surprise then if its real-estate valuations tumble, . . . in a hurry!

    What takes weeks for toxicology reports?

    The confrontation occurred only 15 minutes after the incident at the convenience store robbery. Even thought the cop didn’t know about it, Brown probably thought the cop was coming after him for that and was reacting aggressive because of that. Wasn’t going to let himself get arrested!

  • mtnhikerdude

    This fiasco is the direct result of three generations of welfare . These families in Furguson that are looting and tossing Molotov Cocktails at Cops are reminiscent of Palestinians . There is not one family member in three generations who has held down a full time job. All they are doing is giving non blacks a reason to stay locked and loaded. Brown was a hoodlum just as Travon was. Making them saints is not the answer.

    • Sheik Yerbouti

      Numerically it is closer to 5 generations of welfare. Black children start having children in their mid-teens. Black grandparents aren’t up to the task of raising all those chilluns while Dontavious and Sekeeta are languishing in the penal system (innocent, oppressed blacks of course).

      Ferguson is only a template that’s common around the US. Cells of very dangerous people with terrible inferiority complexes and an entrenched but very twisted idea of what it means to be a victim.

      I’m afraid that since the government will do nothing, the people must. It’s time to boycott black Americans until they get their sh it together!

    Wow…just wow…smdh. Now I remember why I stopped responding or even reading this bigoted and biased, online, racist, bullshit, blog but continue to monitor just like I monitor Stormfront and other racist sites.
    And before you say anything about my perspective on this police murder of another innocent black male, do your own frikkin research instead of blindly trusting the idiot that wrote this slanted piece of garbage. “Go back to Africa” you suggest Gregor Mendel? NONE OF THEM HAVE EVER BEEN TO AFRICA dumbass, they were ALL born here in North America and marginalized to the point of frustration and anger, so take your white behind back to Europe!! Yeah, the whole world is watching and white America is once again on trial for being the racist idiots you have always been, you can leave Obama out of it,…it only makes you look worse bigoted idiots.,
    I was born and raised in St. Louis, graduated from sub-standard public schooling and graduated nursing school and worked at Barnes Hospital, my husband…also an RN worked at Washington University but he grew up in the Boot Heel or Limbaugh Country…Missouri is overrun with racists and bigots but they also have some EVOLVED white souls as well, so NO…I’m not lumping all of those people together.
    Historically, MOST black people in the St. Louis area AVOID Ferguson if at all possible and it is because of the racist police department and their profiling of the entire black community as “thugs” and “savages”. Most small businesses there are doing just fine and SOME have been guarded by the residents of Ferguson against black people from OUTSIDE OF FERGUSON and even from out of town (East St. Louis, ILLINOIS is only five minutes away from St. Louis along Hwy 270 and 70!!) FACTS don’t matter to bigots, so you will probably dismiss the FACT that Ferguson police beat and tried to sue an innocent black man who got lost on the highway and wound up in Ferguson …yeah, the police DO LIE to make themselves look good, and that is why the police chief that released the video is now FIRED and you won’t be seeing that lying bigot on TV anymore as the DOJ has taken over.

If so why did the police want to sue the guy & keep their bad deeds high profile?For that matter,do you think that rogue white cops would not beat up some “innocent white man”?
      You black militants are the bigots,you hate all white people,especially if they are Jewish.Black Americans are the worst Anti-Semites in America.They are led by such race pimps as Jesse Jackson,Al Sharpton,Rev.Wright & Louis Farrakhan.All of them on the Arab Oil payroll & all rabid Jew haters.

I am white & Jewish,I have a nephew who works for city agency in NY.Most of the other employees are “Black Militants” who treat the place as though it was their own private business!Being white & with a Jewish last name they treat him like sh*t!.He hangs in & takes the abuse because he needs the job!
      P.S.S: As I said in an earlier post,What about all of the misery & hardship dropped on the people who earned a living in all of those shops that were destroyed?Who will cover the losses caused by those Black looters who saw an opportunity to steal that which belonged to someone Else?

    • DontMessWithAmerica

      Let me tell you something, sister lischelle. I have a letter in my files sent to me by Thurgood Marshall in 1954 commending me for my efforts to stamp out racism. Marshall was then the chief lawyer of the NAACP. Like so many other young liberals who had nothing to do with Negroes before, I condemned any white who uttered any word against these innocent black folks. Of course, I grew up and wisened up. Since Obama, however, I changed my opinion and attitude. He has set race relations back by 50 years. But the problems started before him, caused by hemorrhaging-heart liberals who introduced every
      conceivable type of welfare and privileges which with material things robbed of and degraded the character of the black community into hopelessly greedy, angry, ignorant beings that couldn’t survive today in Africa for a month. America has about 44 million blacks, 14.2% of
      the population. 14.2 percent commit over 50% of the crimes in America.

      The country would be vastly improved if that number could be reduced by about 40 million. I am sure there are 4 million, decent, upstanding, educated black citizens in America. The other 40 million drag this country down like a bad disease. While your righteous friends in Ferguson rioted in the streets about 50 to 100 blacks were shooting and killing other blacks and whites in the rest of the country. No, they can’t be sent back to Africa because they’re not from there but it would be a good step toward the health and prosperity of the country if they could be moved to Mexico and Central America, even in an exchange for the illegals. And packaged with this 40 million I would add Obama,
      Holder and some of the self-appointed black community leaders.

      Everything in life develops with what has been described as self-regulating mechanisms, . . . well, as is now to be seen, Ferguson has lost that and similarly, for its place in the USA, as a whole is losing its grip in that way. But however those things might be, this is not then to say that, things will simply continue to exist without such control; for, as there in Ferguson, the situation participant is simply overrun, . . . by an animal larger and stronger, the National Guard, say, or by the FBI, or on a larger scale, by another nation.
      In a certain situation, a military general from China told one of our Generals: “We’re going to hurt you.”, . . . In President Kennedy’s day, we had some 750 major war ships. Now, we have 250. Also, a high positioned Chinese dignitary has said: “The problem with the United States is, there are too many Blacks.”; and as from international chatter concerning the rape of that 12yr-old girl in Okinawa, from other things also, it is easily discernible that, the Orientals are against Blacks. And with this, as you may be aware of, if Blacks constitute say, 20% of the national population, and, the age group 15 – 35 year-olds are 15% of their whole, and that age group occupying an apparent large part of the prison population, why then, when Oprah spoke her idea for the resolve of many national problems: “Old white men have to die.”, to put it all together, in a way, she may have been somewhat prophetic, but except that, if the USA is fated to undergo the much desired Sino-Soviet military invasion, it will not generally be old White men who are destined as first to die, but rather young lack men, . . . or perhaps even, young lack women, . . . or, both.

      But however some may see present national problems as concerning race—I would say—they have not nearly so much to do with the culture of any given ethnic extraction, as with matters of religion, . . . personal holiness, . . . which enables one to stand in integrity, without reference to what others might be doing.

      • lischelle love, RN

        Thanks for the reply Phillip but I don’t DO religion of ANY kind, I don’t see it as necessary to bring it into the picture every single time since an individual is either moral and ethical without bringing some deity into the mix/discussion.

        I read the facts from both sides on this issue, I have ONLY sons and at least one of my nephews IS a St. Louis county police officer himself. I have uncles and cousins in law enforcement all over the country, so this looks bad all the way around. I taught my sons to never ride 4 deep in a car, as the police automatically assume “gang activity” IF the occupants are black…never white teens riding 4 deep. Also, don’t reach for NOTHING….cellphone, seatbelt or anything else because it could get you killed and the police DO tend to LIE after a shooting, to save their own jobs.
        Too many innocent, unarmed black males die because of police bias once they get a badge, the white community wouldn’t put up with this for decades let alone for months if young white teens were getting shot by the police and the bigots on this thread want to include Obama and Holder in this hot mess!?!?!

          You blacks have abused your race card privileges to the point that the race card has zero meaning anymore.

        • PhillipGaley

          Well, dear Child, yes, . . . most any thinking person might well surmise your irreligious cant.
          But however that might be, I wish only to remark upon the rather useless generalizations in comment. Being an RN and a wife and a mother of boys, no doubt, you would be able to come up with many an example of the “First things, first!” rule. And if only for one or two examples, if the patient has stopped breathing, the RNs would not idle around debating other things concerning his health; and no doubt, you insist upon your sons that, they first wash their hand; and most probably, you have some “First things, first!” rules for your husband, . . ..
          And there is something similar in law and life: “He who comes seeking equity or fair consideration must himself be one who does so.”.
          Although Michael Brown is corporeally dead, who he was and what he did now appears quite lively in abstract argument. And for all this, by the video frame in which he’s shoving the shopkeeper, he manifests in violence, . . . as a criminal, . . . a thug. So then, for his cast in any historical record, we can expect nothing for him but hard entertainment. In a word, in real terms, there is little or nothing beside, properly noticeable in discussion.
          Finally, for all the generalizations in arbitrary opinions, . . . in Michael Brown’s death, there are impoverished souls who take occasion to have worked ruination of Ferguson, . . . and yes, I think that, Ferguson is done, . . . it is toast, . . .

          • lischelle love, RN

            Sorry Phillip, you lost me after “irreligious cant” and I can’t comment on your post. I still believe that if white, unarmed teens were killed EVERY MONTH in the USA the comments on this thread and across the country would be put into a different perspective

            Found this observation below earlier today about the general racist/bigoted mindset that is present across the state of Missouri…

            “…Founded in 1985 by the axhandle-wielding Georgia segregationist Lester Maddox and a group of white activists, the CCC remained obscure to most Americans until 1998, when media exposure of its ties to prominent Congressional Republicans led to the resignation of Mississippi Senator Trent Lott as Majority Leader. Six years later, the Southern Poverty Law Center, a nonprofit group monitoring racist activity in the United States, reported that the CCC had hosted as many as 38 federal, state, and local officials at its meetings (all of them Republicans except one Democrat) – despite a warning from the Republican National Committee against associating with the hate group.

            Over the years, the CCC’s friends in high places included such figures as former Missouri Senator John Ashcroft, who shared much of the CCC agenda as governor, when he opposed “forced desegregation” of St. Louis schools – along with the CCC members who served on the city’s school board. When President George W. Bush appointed Ashcroft as U.S. Attorney General, the CCC openly celebrated, declaring in its newsletter that “Our Ship Has Come In.”

            Recently, many fewer Republican officials have been willing to associate in public with the CCC’s racist leaders. Then again, however, Ashcroft himself tended to meet secretly with those same bigots, while outwardly shunning them. When asked about his connections with the group during his confirmation hearings in 2001, he swore that he had no inkling of its racist and anti-Semitic propaganda – a very implausible excuse given the CCC’s prominence in St. Louis while he served as governor.

            Despite the CCC’s presence, Missouri is home to many fine and decent people, of course – but malignant traces of the group, and the racial animus it represents, have spread far beyond the state’s borders. The most obvious example is Rush Limbaugh, the “conservative” cultural phenomenon who grew up south of St. Louis in Cape Girardeau, Mo., and who has earned a reputation as a racial agitator over many years on talk radio, where he began by doing mocking bits in black dialect….”

            Like I said, I grew up in Missouri, and was very happy and at peace when I left that HOLE!!

            You add some elucidation for the Southern Poverty Law Center, as “a nonprofit group monitoring racist activity in the United States”, . . . that’s nice, and no doubt, there are those who did not know what the Southern Poverty Law Center is all about. But then, googling “CCC”, mostly, brings up articles on The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) which eventually, became the Job Corps program. You used “CCC” say, nine or ten times, it might be kind of interesting to know just what the CCC is, and how that could be made to tie in with arguments concerning race as pertaining to the recent events in Ferguson.
            Then, inthat, you have not specified any agent of death, your: “I still believe that, if in the USA, white, unarmed teens were killed EVERY MONTH”, appears as fragmentary, . . . For your intended argument to succeed, are these White, unarmed teenagers to be considered as killing one another, are the police to be seen as doing it, or both, or, is there to be some non-human agent of death?

            But whatever in further development that, that fragmentary argument might intend, I would say, as concerns the town of Ferguson and this article, arguments about race are a red herring, they are simply an arbitrary extension of facts as perceived: Specifically, the people who are involved in destructive activity are a representative evil, and they should stop doing so and instead, improve their town—looting and all mayhem is contrary to the American Spirit.
            And, someone will say: “Oh, it’s the Black people who are doing it.”, as may be supposed by constructon to say that, they are doing so because they are of Afican extraction, . . . but which is rather, a mere attempt to contrive a label for a construct of arbitrary purpose; for, people do not do bad things because they are of Asian extraction, or of African extraction, or of European extraction, or any such, but rather, because they are bad people, . . . and again, except to zero in on the actual causative factor, anything else of seeming reason is mere construction; and in the actuality of the thing, than out-and-out fabrication, because it is simulation, construction is far worse, for, so many more can be—and are—easily deceived.
            Myself, just what reasons they might wish to advert to for their mayhem—and they do have ideas which they feel are of reason, for, the human never acts in the absence of reason—I do not know, nor would it be profitable to attempt to sort things out, looking for some schema of understanding, . . . as those foolish minds who ask to know further, why the terrorist destroyed the lives of the passengers and their airplane, the simplest—and really, the only—answer being that, he did so because he chose to represent evil—as “You can’t get blood out of a turnip.”, the otherwise sensible person supposes that, by picking through and sorting out for good, in the mind of a bad individual, there can be found some nugget of value.

            “John Ashcroft”? Well, he is United Pentecostal, and speaks in tongues, which, . . . many take as a form of insanity.

            “Missouri is home to many fine and decent people, of course”, except that, then, you use the univeral negative and disjunctive “but” which in the logic of discussion denies its foregoing, . . . so, . . . do many fine and decent people live in Missouri, or, do they not? But of course, whatever the answer to that might be, plainly, there weren’t enough of them to have forestalled the mayhem in Ferguson.

          • lischelle love, RN

            Sheesh Phillip, you like to over-analyze ad nauseum….smh. There are no “red herrings”, this is a purely civil rights extra-judicial police killing that wouldn’t be tolerated by the white community if it was occurring EVERY MONTH in this country.

            The Huffington Post just wrote an article about the history of Ferguson, MO, “The Seamy Underbelly of Ferguson Starts to Appear”. I grew up in the city of St. Louis, and if you are black and had a car/truck you tended to AVOID Ferguson because of the mind-set of the police there. Give the article a read and get back to me please; I know you and others on this thread and in the greater society are looking at this as WHITE people…this is a BLACK problem and viewed from a black perspective as Just Us,

          • PhillipGaley

            Lischelle, you’ve never been locked up with career criminals, playing cards with them, and for long hours, listening to their stories of their exploits, . . . how they out-smarted their associates, the police, and the courts. Many of them, the thing which most love in life is, telling about themselves in that way. But finallly, comes round their present case, and oh gosh, the dirty rotten government, the police, the judge, their lawyer, on and on, they don’t want to average it out for the many times in which they didn’t get caught, no, . . . what’s wrong with our country, basically, the dirty rotten stinking criminal justice system is corrupt, totally corrupt, the cops, the courts, everything.
            They wish it to be supposed that, because they haven’t been convicted of this or that that, no one of any account knows the life they’ve lived. And of course, being an RN, upon meeting and spending a little time with each person in your care, you also, can correctly surmise quite a bit about that person—right? And similarly in bringing up boys—you know how boys think—when they’re young and learning how everyone wants the world to work, it’s not too long before they finnaly accept that, they just can’t fool mom—right?

            Phoebe Loosinhouse’s article: “The Seamy Underbelly Of Ferguson Starts To Appear (Updated)”, is grounded first, in that same classically childish and faulty logic which which progressive Leftists just love; they, supposing that, no one is more experienced — kind of like a mere: “I think, therefore I am.” — and, than themselves, no one understands any more—because they’ve reall thought things through—and, they’re terribly dismayed when otherwise normal people just won’t simply accept the picture which they themselves have synthesized.
            Would anyone of sound mind think that, if Michael Brown were at home practicing his guitar licks, . . . or volunteering at the local food bank, say, still, he would have been killed? Phoebe doesn’t like the obvious conclusion which the larger picture shows for Ferguson and Michael Brown, and so, . . . for her first and second paragraphs, from the news, she scrapbooks a few pieces, and whaddya know, the whole Michael Brown episode just appears out of nowhere, a riddle, . . . a fantastic riddle, . . . how in the world does a man end up dead, with 7 bullets in him, . . . for jaywalking! Except that, using the same childish logic as would a boy, and as do very many criminals, Phoebe would have us also, blink the fact of life in Ferguson in the larger view of things. In the logic of discussion, what Phoebe has done is construction. Phoebe Loosinhouse’s readers would be unable to understand a simple statement of facts, and come up with the conclusions in the base color which she prefers, so, . . . she assumes that, it is left to her to take so many pieces as she will, and fasten them together according to her own design, and the riddle will be solved—the riddle is to end up, . . . governmental corruption, . . . the dirty, rotten, stinking government—except, there never was a riddle, . . . and most probably, nor also, even in Phoebe’s mind, . . . she’s merely intellectually dishonest, . . . kind of like a boy, . . . well sometimes a boy is like that, . . . you know how boys are, . . . and that’s okay, but when an adult does so, he’s said to be childish, . . . or, criminal, . . .

          • PhillipGaley

            From the Chicago Tribune:

            “Antonio Smith, 9 years old, was assassinated the other day.

            He was Chicago’s youngest fatal shooting victim this year. He was shot
            at least four times and fell in a backyard on the South Side.

            And when I went out there on 71st and Woodlawn less than 24 hours after he was murdered, here’s what I didn’t see:

            I didn’t see protesters waving their hands in the air for network TV
            cameras. I didn’t see the Revs. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson playing
            their usual roles in the political race card game.

            I didn’t see white college anarchists hiding behind their white plastic
            Guy Fawkes masks talking about being oppressed by the state. I didn’t
            see politicians equivocating. But the worst thing I didn’t see was this:

            I didn’t see the theatrical outrage that you see in Ferguson, Mo. A
            white cop in Ferguson — a place most people never heard of just two
            weeks ago — shoots a black teenager and the nation knows what to do. The
            actors scream out their roles on cue.

            But in Chicago, a black child is assassinated, and Attorney General Eric
            Holder isn’t on his way here. There are no hashtag campaigns saying
            #saveourboys. And instead of loud anger, there is numb silence.”.

          • PhillipGaley

            watch?v=t2XFh_tD2RA
            “Is America Dreaming?: Understanding Social Mobility”
            In this YT video, although he does mix race and cultural factors, still and all, I think you can get something out of it, . . .

          • lischelle love, RN

            Not sure what this video is supposed to be about but will try to access it tomorrow. I found the following in a Huff Post article….

            “…

            The Rev. Al Sharpton, who visited Ferguson days after the shooting, is a “troublemaker who’s just making everything worse.” The police officer who killed Brown “had to have a good reason. You know he did.”

            I interrupted to point out that the teenager was unarmed when he was shot six times. He shrugged his shoulders.

            “He was 6 feet 4 and weighed 300 pounds,” he said. “Think about that. Now we have rioting in the streets.”

            I was stunned.

            “We really don’t know yet what happened between him and that police officer,” I said.

            “We can imagine,” he said.

            My turn to rattle off what we did know: Brown’s body lay in the street for hours. Ferguson is overwhelmingly black with an overwhelmingly white police force and city government. Most of the protesters have been peaceful. Police wore military gear as if residents were a foreign enemy. Journalists were being arrested for just trying to do their job.

            He held up his hands. “OK, OK,” he said, smiling. “Maybe we should just stop talking about it.”

            What struck me about this exchange, beyond the inappropriateness of the venue, was his assumption that our mutual whiteness meant I would agree with him. I left feeling as if I’d just time traveled back to 1972 for an argument with my dad about race.

            I’ve had a little time to reflect on my encounter with that doctor, and I think what bothers me most is that I know he represents a significant segment of white America — so certain in his assumptions, so blind to the privilege of race that fuels them….”

        • PhillipGaley

          I would say that, your arguments concerning “race” are quite without understanding: For, race concerns genetics, as say, in the entire group, a genetic predisposition toward this or that on account of genes; whereas, the adverse situation in Ferguson concerns culture clash—looters and other thugs there acting against civil society..

          One example concerning racial difference or genes, is the fact of Blacks being more susceptible to fluorosis So then, all of the political pressure and false science (if indeed, it is false) pushing cities into floridation, will be first, to an inordinate degree of harm to Black children.

  • whyisthemedia covering this

    6′ 4″ 292 lb crimnal attacks cop, cop shoots, cop is guilty,
    IMO pretty stupid to go after a cop in the first place, let alone when they have a gun on you… if this were a white guy, there would be no mention of it at all……

    • Evermyrtle

      That would mean that a black killed a white man, blacks would “eat that up!” Blacks would celebrate for weeks!

      • Michelle

        That’s repulsive. Only trash would do that, whatever their color. Celebrate an unarmed 18 y/o human getting killed? What a vile and unsupported idea/

    • Webb

      Yes, but, but, although he was rather large for his age, he had the mind of a chile, and should’ve been treated with tender understanding. The officer should have enjoyed a Swisher with him and asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up.

  • Lanna

    The Parents want a 3rd autopsy…part of playing the political game. The Left doesn’t care about laws…they feel they are above the Law!

  • FrankTalk14

    So the writer of this article and others who express similar sentiments have already vindicated the shooting officer before we know all of the facts. The witness Tiffany said Brown was shot as he was surrendering after he attempted to run away from officer. We do not know whether Brown at any time attempted to take officer’s weapon. The fact that he appears to be the one that strongarm robbed the convenience store shows that Brown was no saint, and that he probably deserved some jail time. But the relevant question for this case now is did the officer shoot him when Brown attempted to surrender? A thorough and impartial investigation needs to determine this and I think both sides – those who rush to exonerate police and those on other side who rush to indict it (like Sharpton) need to wait until all the facts come out. I see a lot of people projecting their own biases onto this case. If after all the mayhem and looting (which there is no excuse for) and peaceful protesting (which people have a right to do) this case encourages a nationwide discussion on police-community relations and cases of police brutality (which affect Americans of all races – note killing of white Kelly Thomas in Fullerton, California) then that may ultimately be a good thing. However that is a discussion that needs to continue long after the media cameras who look for the next best-selling story leave Ferguson behind.

    It’s interesting why the store clerk has not being interviewed. I’m sure it’s another ploy to hide the truth. I bet he has some juicy details about “he’s a good boy” ” gentle giant”. The tiny man seemed terrified being attack by that giant gorilla. I wonder who has been paying to feed the good boy for him to balance the scale at close to 300 lbs! A lot of junk had to go in that pie hole and not too much physical activity.The clerk is terrified of the violent crowd if he tells the truth about tha good boy.If Obama had a son, woul he look like M.B.?Moochelle would have to do a lot of “lets move” with him because he was definitely obese.

    • blackyb

      They were trying to avoid saying the clerk called the police to protect him from the same types as Brown. That is where that likely started. The cops knew about the robbery.

    • theomegaconcern

      thats a geat point on the store clerk. he could probably tell if the guy was under the influence of any drugs. but I would not want to be that guy. will be getting death threats if he doesn’t toe the official narrative.
      he has to have been interviewed but he is not saying what the media and Obama want to hear

    • FrankTalk14

      If the clerk (I understand he may actually be the owner of the store) was terrified then why did he come out from behind the counter in the first place?

      • kasandra

        Yeah, it’s his fault he was robbed and assaulted running a store and all.

        • FrankTalk14

          LOL – that’s reading things into what I said that I did not. I did not imply that it was his fault for being robbed and assaulted.

          • kasandra

            Well, why did you ask why he came out from behind the counter? He was trying to lock the door so the thief couldn’t get out with his swag and trying to protect the fruits of his hard labor from being taken.

  • blackyb

    I have never seen or heard of anything so offensive as Sharpton bullying and chasing Jews down the street when HE weighed in at every bit of 400 pounds. Now that Al is slimmed down his big mouth weighs in at 400 pounds of lies.

          it’s already been reported the officer suffered head injuries from the -initial- attack,while he was still seated in his patrol car. the struggle where the officer’s gun went off inside the car. (a felony attack on a police officer,BTW)

          • Intelligence

            Reported by what/whom, and where’s the medical report to support this claim?

          • Intelligence

            It has now been reported that this report is false. Hmmmm….What are we to believe now, JayWye?

  • blackyb

    Obama and those with his agenda have studied blacks and their emotions to where they are playing them like a fiddle. All of them knows blacks like to show off and get loud. The Obama Administration uses this along with people like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to demand a respect none of them have earned. They WILL NOT get it either.

  • mtmla

    The PC attempt to hide the truth abou the “he’s a good boy
    ” Brown because the truth is an attempt to smear B’s character reminds me of the same about telling the truth about Islam. It’s islamophobia, it’s trying to smear the religion of peace, even though what you are saying is true and is evident in the Koran , the Sharia law, and what the islamics say and do.

  • outerreef

        • Drakken

          Depends on what type of round you use, Gold dot for one and there is a certain round by Franchi that will be more than enough to drop the Mau Mau that is attacking you.

            For some reason too many PDs use 9mm

          • Drakken

            Because 9 mm cost less than 40 or 45. Smaller departments can’t afford to upgrade to the higher calibers much less have enough money left over to let officers target practice, the most officers these days fire is less than 100 rounds a year.

      With a 300 lb attacker,fewer than 6 shots of 9 mm may not be enough to stop such a thug,plus he was a moving target. Add drugs in their system,and it’s even worse.

      a large amount of fat,and the muscle behind it necessary to lug around that much weight,makes it harder for bullets to penetrate and hit vital organs to result in a quick stop. some fat people have been shot and didn’t even know it.

    So Obama and Holder side with the thugs and criminals, stirring up hate and discontent. If Obama had a son he would be just like Michael Brown. The Michael Browns of the world need to be locked up with the key thrown away. This Michael Brown is dead but the truth of the matter is he brought it on himself. The left wants to blame police. We want to look at the character of Michael Brown. He’s not a hero. He’s a scum bag. Plain and simple. People who want to make him into a martyr are just plain out and out wrong. They’re agitators.

    While we wait for subsequent autopsies to continue until one shows police culpability, we can pass the time predicting what is currently being suppressed from public view. From the info that HAS managed to become public knowledge, my guess is that we will ultimately learn that 1- the innocent boy was under the influence of drugs, 2- he has a long (and previously shielded from the public because he’s a minor) record of criminal activity, 3- his parents aren’t much more than the same kind of thug trash that he was, 4- 90%+ of the “demonstrators” are also worthless bums/thugs who live on the dole and all have extensive criminal records, as well, and finally 5- the Obama administration has done everything in its power to prevent the general public from knowing about anything they discover from 40 government agencies going through the place with a fine toothed comb.
    In fact, my prediction is that the Obama administration will rue the day they peeled back the cover of this social turd.

    Black babies are killed by black gang bangers and not a peek. A black woman goes to prison for firing a gun at her black husband – no one is injured she goes to jail for 15 years – not a peep but a black teenager gets killed by a white officer who may have been acting in self defense and its an evil beyond compare. This is grave over reaction by a financially distressed minority that is angry at the current administration but can’t voice it because the President is black.

    • American Patriot

      The president is mixed-race (black and white) So is George Zimmerman (white and Hispanic). Yet, the left characterizes the president as “black” and Zimmerman as “white” or the characterization of “white Hispanic”. That is a racist double standard.

      • Jack

        Actually Zimmerman was racially 1/4th black

    Now is the time more than ever before, since the years of the Civil War,
    than you Americans have to start joining together and helping each other.
    Stop the terrible racial aggression!… Do you want a new civil war? There are
    so many wonderful dedicated Americans who want your nation to have a future.
    With white background and coloured background , and mixed background.
    I am writing from Netherlands, where no discrimination against coloured people
    is ever tolerated! Every person has equal rights here, regardless of their colour.
    We Judge people according to their personal achievements, or when necessary,
    their crimes. While the police are doing their best to try to keep the peace
    in poor neighbourhoods, more people should try to help the coloured communities
    to help them build a normal life in the future. We did this several this several
    years ago in a communtity in Amsterdam called “The Bijlmer”. When Suriname
    became independant from Netherlands, many coloured people came here and
    were registered as new citizens. Many are now living in The Bijlmer and they
    have built up a very strong, cultured, and happy community. We all love these
    wonderful, cheerful folks!
    But because the Islam is now casting a Dark Shadow, everywhere in Netherlands, the police in our large cities are on 24-hour alert, to protect
    the communities against the continuing large Jihad riots and demonstrations.
    Several men and women of colour are working together with those who have
    ordinary European features, to try to keep the Islam from taking over our
    country! Many years ago I was inspired by a great coloured vocalist:
    Marian Anderson! She inspired me to continue my studies in Europe.
    Although I have a very white skin colour, I would ask all you Americans
    to stop using the term” black” to describe your neighbours. In the old city
    in Canada where I grew up, we just spreak over coloured people.
    No one is Black and no one is White.
    I wish

      The blacks here have special rights, and three amendments to our Constitution were written especially for the little dears. A white person can be sued to within an inch of his life if he speaks ill of negroes, but let a negro rape, murder or otherwise harm a white person (or an Asian, or Hispanic, or Native American), a whole raft of “spokesmen” and “advocates” will shout to the heavens how the negro’s act was justified because of “racism” or “poverty” or “discrimination” or some other such bull manure.

      We have laws mandating that negroes get hired before anyone else, and if an employer doesn’t have enough of them or doesn’t promote enough of them or pay them what the negroes think they’re worth, he can be driven out of business. The negroes get Welfare, SNAP, EBT, Food Stamps, AFDC and all kinds of other benefits from White, Asian, Native and Hispanic Americans WHO HAVE JOBS!!! They produce nothing, save for offspring, and have contributed precisely ZERO to this nation! They don’t get their way, the implied threat of violence is always present, so someone usually backs down…look at what’s happening in Missouri now. The same thing happened in Tulsa in 1919, Watts in 1965, Detroit later in the ’60’s, and after their great savior King was shot in 1968. They were a major cause of our Civil War (not THE cause, but one of them), commit the vast majority of violent crime in this country, and are a drag on its economy. If it weren’t for the violence caused by negroes, most cities in the United States would be safer than anyplace else on this planet! The low test scores of negro children drag down the averages of our students, and also draw off monetary resources which could be used more productively in other areas of education, such as educating those children who have serious learning disabilities or assisting children with physical disabilities.

      At one time in my life, I thought that all Americans were equal…well, I’ve lived a few years and have seen reality. I’ve seen and experienced how racist negroes are. I’ve seen how violent and thuggish they can be. I’ve dealt with their offspring and the baby mamas and baby daddies (they *bleep* sure aren’t parents, and that’s a fact!), and except for a VERY few negroes (there’s no “talented tenth,” maybe a “useful and productive one tenth of one percent,” but that seems to be stretching it some), the VAST majority are a drag and detriment to the United States.

      Hey, if you love negroes so much, and think they’re “wonderful, cheerful folks,” why don’t you take ours? You sound like you’d just adore all their wonderful cheerfulness, and we’d finally be rid of them!

      • Rosasolis

        Thank-you for replying. Although you have exaggerated much of
        what I had written! I am also not so young any more and I am
        well aware of the troubles America is now facing I dislike your
        present communist/socialist Obama government, which alas is promoting
        the Media to keep on backing them. So that they can continue supporting illegal immigrants and thousands of unemployed and uneducated coloured people. I am also aware of the rising rate of crimes amongst these people and that the jails are overfull with murderers, rapists, and thieves! I certainly is not write that I “love negroes so much!”
        But being a Christian, and a former concert and oratorio singer
        I have always judged an INDIVIDUAL on his or her merits and
        honesty! The Bible does not mention colour!
        Our world has become terribly over-populated, especially
        with the poor, uneducated people. And I think that
        over-population of these asocial people crowded together
        in large communities, such as Detroit, is an understatement!
        I remember being caught it a riot in Detroit during my student
        years in the 1960’s. I was very frightened, and could only hope
        that the old car we students were in could get through the
        terrible riot, safely! We came from Ontario, Canada, to celebrate our final exams and graduation from the University.
        Well, we are now 50 + years further, and the problems caused by Obama and colleagues in America and Internationally
        are increasing, everyday! Please realize that not only America is experiencing daily riots…we have plenty of riots organized
        by Isis terrorists going on throughout our largest cities in
        Europe…They are now demanding that The Hague be declared the first Caliphate in Europe, along with their demands of enforcing their Sharia Law upon the entire
        population! … I hope you will soon realize that you Americans should start supporting your conservative Republican party,
        which needs your support more than ever before.
        But you should realize that this party has also coloured people, such as Condoleesa Rice, and now Allan West, both of whom
        are wonderful dedicated Americans.
        I would like to hear more from you. If you are interested

  • Misfit

    I can’t believe this, I am watching FoxNews right now, and here is a press conference with Dr. Baden (retained pathologist by the Brown family) who did an independent autopsy on Michael Brown and here he is giving specific details on the results of the autopsy. Yes this is an open issue and the sooner you release the information the better but the specific information and “assertions” should be left to the trial not now!! They are already trying the police in front of the media. At least this information contaminates the Jury pool. What a travesty. This whole thing is ridiculous.

    • Tito Puente

      and yet you’re so happy that they’re releasing this video which, to quote you, ‘contaminates the Jury pool’

      • Western Canadian

  • frodo

    So, basically, you’re arguing that his shooting was justified because he was alleged to have stolen something and because he, like any number of others, was a fan of hip hop. Articles like this are, despite your claims to the contrary, race-baiting as much as (if not more so ) than what this site tediously and tendentiously complains about from the left. Just look at the first comment below.

    The police officer did not know about the alleged crime when he stopped Brown, we still do not know enough about what happened on that street, and there’s still not enough to suggest that shooting Brown six times was justified.

    • ricky

      No, I am not arguing that the shooting was justified because he “allegedly” stole something. I don’t even know where to begin with your comment. Did you see the video? After he “allegedly” stole the cigars he grabbed the store employee by the throat then pushed him into a store display. Do you honestly think the store employee wanted to stop the thug if the thug had done nothing wrong? Did you see Brown come back and say something to the employee? What do you think he said? Be honest. Don’t make excuses for these thugs. Do you think that Brown, after being stopped for whatever reason by Officer Wilson, resisted ? Be honest. What is happening in our culture is being enabled by people like you who are blinded by God knows what.

      • Tito Puente

        fine, let’s skip to the real question counsellor…

        If your white son stole ten dollars worth of junk, shoved some younger kids out of the way, and left the store.

        Would you think it was justified if a black cop blew his ahzz away because he felt ‘threatened’?

        • American Patriot

          Who knows how many of those scenarios as the one you describe actually happen in this country and in Zimbabwe every year. But the reason we don’t hear about those stories is because it doesn’t fit the narrative about perceived contemporary alleged white racism in this country. The left and the MSM doesn’t find the scenarios you described to be newsworthy, even if they actually happened.

        • JayWye

          Stop being dishonest by omitting the part about the attack(s) on the officer.
          The REAL reason Brown was shot and killed.
          the officer didn’t know anything about the earlier robbery.

          • Tito Puente

            only if you stop acting like you already know exactly what happened on the night in question…

            the only thing i know for certain is a cop shot an unarmed kid, and the kid is dead…

            if you want to talk about what you know for certain happened in the store a few minutes before that you can, it certainly looks like a relatively minor crime to me (especially when everyone on this board is trying to use this crime to justify what appears to be a misuse of deadly force), but as the officer said, he had no idea about the previous incident and i don’t see how it’s relevant to the shooting or ALLEGED skirmish with the cop…

            the cop had no reason to treat the victim as someone who’d just committed a crime, and i have no certainty as to how things played with the cop prior to shots being fired…

            i prefer to know more before i pass any type of judgment, but obvioulsy you guys are just better at this than i am…

      • frodo

        I was talking about the full post above, for one thing.

        So, allegedly stealing cigars (an allegation that the officer DID NOT KNOW ABOUT) means that the shooting’s better? There are multiple accounts of the actual encounter–some of which don’t support the ridiculous idea that Brown was reaching into a car for the officer’s gun.

        Regardless, nothing I’ve seen justifies killing anybody.

        Vadum is providing the usual FrontPage clickbait.

    • JayWye

      Brown ATTACKED the officer while the cop was still seated in his patrol car(a felony),a struggle that resulted in the discharge of the officer’s gun and injuries to the officer.
      then Brown began to flee,then reversed and reattacked,and that is when he was shot and killed. Justifiable homicide.

      • frodo

        Other descriptions contradict that account–which doesn’t make a lot of sense on its face (reaching into a police car to try to take a holstered weapon, really?). We don’t know what happened in that street.

  • Lassiefaire

    The culture of victimhood exists for the comfort of individual indulgence and collective crime. No shame… just blame (whites, slavery, Jews, capitalism, GWBush). Rev. race pimps enable the mob of zombies to assert how oppressed they are… chanting “no justice, no peace” and raising their arms in a unifying salute. Leftist media and politicians feed their appetite for pain and suffering inflicted by a law enforcement officer who obviously performed his duty without considering the unfortunate circumstances the perpetrator had endured over generations of abuse.

  • ricky

    Watching the media coverage of this event is sickening. Stop the bus, I want to get off. Don Lemon of CNN is especially offensive. Whenever anyone dies like this it is normally a tragedy. However what led up to Officer Wilson’s actions and the character and mindset of the criminal bully Brown is paramount. Yes, you read that right , I believe sincerely after watching the video that Brown is a thug. I think it would be apparent to any objective person. Have we become so afraid and PC that we no longer can see what is obvious?. Should we as a society allow fools like this to steal from stores with impunity ? Should we allow thugs like this to threaten and assault the store employees with no consequences? After viewing this video I can believe without a doubt that Brown would have assaulted Officer Wilson when he was stopped. I am sure he did. I am ashamed of our political leaders who run and hide from the truth of what is going on in our culture , including the black community. The media doesn’t want to report that criminals like Brown are violent felons who resist police authority when they are lawfully stopped. Why do black men resist police authority? It never turns out well. Why doesn’t the media focus on that? When will black parents and the Black Community at large take some responsibility for turning out thugs like Brown? The media is enabling these people. Give me a break. . This whole incident makes me ashamed of the U.S. . I am glad I am older now. I don’t wish to live a long time in a world that has become this tragically phony. I feel sorry for the decent people of all races in this country that are going to have to live with this crap for generations to come. .

      Spot on!!!…..God Bless!!!

    • Tito Puente

      fyi – paramount literally means ‘more important than anything else’

      so you’re saying the ‘the character and mindset of Brown’ is the most important thing in that entire evening?

      not the fact that someone was murdered by a police officer who has already admitted he had no idea what had happened in the store…

      so basically the officer knew nothing about his mindset or character, but murdered him just in case — and that’s ok because we now have security video to prove he deserved it?

      allow me to use the word paramount in a sentence…

      “Your ongoing education will be paramount if you ever want to rise above the level of a racist neanderthal.”

Because they stole $50 worth of cigars (which I didn’t know about) and they jaywalked.

          • Western Canadian

            The lack of resemblance of what you have offered up compared to what happened, is staggering. As is your dishonesty

          • Michelle

            Okay, maybe I have some of the details wrong, but how does that make me dishonest?

      • Western Canadian

        Actually, since you are, at best and contrary to your claims elsewhere, a semi-literate jerk, he is right, and you are, as usual, wrong. If the criminal thug in question had not been a criminal thug with a sense of entitlement regarding being a thief and attacking a uniformed and armed cop…. If he had merely been a reasonably normal and decent human being…. one with character, he would not have set himself up to have been shot…
        So the application of ‘paramount’ in this case is quite valid.

        Pity you lack the brains to understand that.

        • Tito Puente

          Oh i have the brains to understand that you’re ‘one of them there’ that tries to explain to the stupid ‘them theres’ about the intricacies of whatnot they don’t understand so they can get back to yelling and pointing fingers.

          But character has zero to do with anything, if it was Ronald Reagan or ‘insert name of black thug here’, the only thing that matters is the actions and/or reactions between the victim and the officer — especially because you can’t argue anything about the officer having prior knowledge as to his character or prior behavior, he said as much.

          If you would choose to argue that this person was more predisposed to such behavior than “lilly whitebread folks in Beverly Hills”, I couldn’t argue that.

          If you have to do that much justifying to use the word paramount, more than likely you’ve used it incorrectly, and in this case he did. I was right, still am, your commas can’t change that, dissuade, circumvent, or obfuscate.

          Pity you lack the moral fiber to tell your brethren when they’re wrong, or at least explain three syllable words to them — slowly.

    The enduring solution is simple: desegregate the Nation. Let the Blacks and Browns have their own territory and complete control. I will choose a White dominated territory that mandates perpetual White dominance. Blacks and Browns incessantly whine about their troubles being the exclusive fault and cause of Whites. Put it to the test and see what they can produce and advance on their own. Start them out with a functioning infrastructure, turn key, and I would bet the moon that they will destroy it and bring it down to rubble inside of a generation.

        If we keep having people like Barack Obama and Eric Holder, there is no way we can live together. NONE!

        I would prefer not, but there are inevitable situations. An example might by Wall Street, major corporations. If one of these is in White territory, then after hours Blacks should return to their enclave, where they can be a “Chocolate” community without Euro-Americans to “oppress” them, i.e., make them look and feel inferior of their own volition. They can finally be free to burst forth with creative and dynamic energy, producing erudite, industrious, and enterprising future generations, and overall excellence of civilized values.

        Today, they have wanted separation and have received in Black educational institutions, professional, sports, social organizations, which are exclusionary. They have received it. I believe that the Constitution provides equality for Whites, so that we many choose exclusivity as well. In our case, however, we will not ask any other race to pay our way, pick up our trash, or wash our clothes or put food on our tables.

    this is just sad, I want you all too look at your own kids and realize what would you do if your kid was taken from you. this is probably the only article you people have read and if you actually look at the comments then you can see that out of this whole nation only 136 people think the way you people think. yes the kid robbed a store and stole swisher sweets, but at the end of the day when the kid was shot to death not once, not twice, not even three times but 6 times two fatal shots two the head and another in the chest then you must realize with your own mind that this was not right. if Michael brown was killed inside the police officers car then this may not even have gotten so out of hand but when Michael brown was 35ft away or further the other 5 shots came to finish the job then there is the problem. say what you wish about he was a thug because he robbed a store and he made rap songs. that doesn’t justifies a cop intent to kill. look up reports there where plenty stating the officer had no idea the kid had robbed the store, also there was no bodily injury to the cop. it was a unjustified shooting done by police.

    • WhiteHunter

      Well, first of all, Webb, if Brown had been “my own kid,” I would have been a real father to him for all 18 years of his life, not just a squirt of DNA at the moment of conception, then stand up, pull up my pants, and walk away. Maybe with a responsible father in his life to supervise and discipline him, he’d still be alive because he wouldn’t have been allowed to grow up to be a hulking thug with an attitude and a big chip on his shoulder.

      Why does it always seem to be, in these cases–as also in the case of St. Trayvon The Martyr–the parents have no interest in properly parenting their offspring until one of them meets his inevitable end, at which moment the weepy, grieving male and female adults lawyer-up, step in front of the cameras, and snivel about how “gentle” their “honor student” was as he was about to leave for pre-med at Harvard so he could find a cure for cancer?

      With each passing day it seems more and more likely that Brown was looking for trouble, and met the end that he fully brought upon himself.

            the cop shot a guy (a very LARGE guy) who was REATTACKING him,he had already been attacked once by Brown while still sitting in his patrol car,and had been injured from that first attack.

            Assaulting a police officer is a felony.
            NO excusing that.

            the black apologists conveniently forget about that part of this travesty.

      Say you steer your car off the road, and down into a 1,000ft deep ravine, . . . would yourself and everybody else be surprised if you died? Would anyone of you speak thus: “Gosh, he didn’t deserve t’die, . . . anyone can make a mistake, . . . GOD shoulda cut ‘im some slack, . . . damn GOD.”. But then, someone else might say: “Well, sometimes things just work out that way, . . . y’gotta be careful.”, . . .
      “No one deserves to die for stealing cigars and pushing a store clerk.”?
      What if—like me—the store clerk was old and fragile? Suppose the shove broke his neck, and so, he then had to finish out the days of his life, . . . a quad, . . . a quadriplegic?

    Attention: Black Community

    If you want respect and to be treated fairly by your fellow citizens and law enforcement, do the following:

    1.) Stop acting like feral animals. You are only 13% of the population but you commit 50% of all violent crime.

    2.) Stop demanding free stuff at the expense of the rest of us. We have already wasted $10 Trillion on black people alone since the 1960s in the form of entitlements, Affirmative Action, preferential treatment and government job programs, all to no avail. Also, you are not going to receive any reparations. Slavery was abolished 150 years ago. It’s time you got your act together and stopped making excuses for your bad decisions.

    3.) Stop rioting every time a black thug gets shot for acting like a thug. We all know you only use it as an excuse to loot free stuff from the rest of us. We don’t like that nor do we approve of it, and your really beginning to pi$$-off the rest of us.

    4.) Stop glorifying rape, murder, pimping, and rapping. Try glorifying G*d or something else that’s positive, like education (and I don’t mean African-American studies).

    5.) Pull your pants up and turn your baseball caps around and wear them the way they were designed to be worn. If you need a belt to hold up your pants and can’t afford one, use a piece of rope or string. Otherwise you all look like mentally challenged morons which only reinforces the worst stereo-types people have about black people.

    6.) Learn to read, write and speak proper English. Nobody is going to give you a job if they cannot understand what you are saying.

    7.) Stop electing racist and ignorant black people or insane and corrupt white people to represent you in government. When you elect idiots like Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Bernie Sanders, Sheila Jackson Lee, Barry Obama, Hillary Clinton and that other idiot that was worried about the island of Diego Garcia tipping over, it only reinforces the stereo-type that black people are ignorant and stupid because the aforementioned people are ignorant, stupid and corrupt.

    8.) Now, stop rioting, looting and mugging your fellow citizens in Ferguson, clean-up the mess you created, and repair the damaged property at your own expense. Take responsibility for your actions. It will go a long way towards convincing us that you are sincere and responsible.

    9.) And finally, go find a job and learn to sacrifice and support yourselves like the rest of us. If millions of illegal aliens can come here and find gainful employment, so can you.

    • Marcus Waters

      13% is a lot of people. I am black and none of your points apply to me. This is what you think of me because of the color of my skin. Take responsibility for your actions. I think you and your ideas are a part of the problem. We do not all think alike and I hate seeing young mans underwear has I walk down the street. My children wears belts but when you see them all you see is the color of there skin and lump them into TV made stereotypes of you black men. Its hard to move forward

      • Max

        I have seen black people and children extremely well behaved and model citizens just as with any race, and I have seen bad just as with any race. So race does not automatically determine if one is bad or not. It is the person themself. There are many disgusting people out there from all races and there are many good ones as well. Only a stupid person does not recognize this, and beware, stupid people are to be feared as they often resort to violence to solve their differences with others.

      Great Comment!!!

    • Tito Puente

      Attention: Mr. Idiotic Racist who can count to nine while displaying no perspective whatsoever..

      So glorifying God is the answer to all that ails black Americans? (or more importantly, the answer to curing all of their ills that might give you the cooties)

      Well, even if we skip the fact that more people have died in the name of God than all other causes put together. Black Americans are by far the most religious segment of the American population. They make white people like you look like heretics that ought to be shot on sight.

      But don’t let the facts get in the way of your racism, your fans seem to be eating it up.

      “The center’s U.S. Religious Landscape Survey, conducted in 2007 on more than 35,000 people, found that 79 percent of African-Americans say religion is very important in their lives while 56 percent of all U.S. adults said the same. Even among African-Americans who are unaffiliated with any particular faith, 45 percent of them say religion is very important compared to 16 percent of the religiously unaffiliated population overall.”

      Gee, if only white people were more religious like all those pious African-Americans that you admire?

      • Drakken

      Just like Farrakhan and Wright are racist hate mongers.

  • Sharps Rifle

    Just released on WaPo: Initial tox screen shows Brown had marijuana in his system…and it was between six and eight gunshot wounds TO THE FRONT. The officer hadn’t yet gotten the 211 broadcast, so he’s wondering why this humongous thing is getting so aggressive when all the officer did was tell him to get out of the middle of the street…the officer had no idea that the monster had a rap sheet that was as long as a football field, was stoned, and had just beat the snot out of a store clerk while boosting some cheap cigars during a robbery. Huge thug gets phycical with officer, injures officer, then turns for another attack after being told to freeze, requires between six and eight rounds of the politically correct weak load into THE FRONT to be taken down.

    Yep, just another angelic nine year-old assassinated for no reason.

    Tell me another one, lefties and race pimps. I like science fiction. Your narrative was better than Star Wars…and more believable.

    • USNbubblehead

      It just blows my mind Sharps. I don’t know who’s worse; the people who propagate the twisted narrative or those who believe it.

          There’s no mystery here, unless its how so many people lost their common sense. Of course, then there’s people like you, who think they know what’s in someone’s heart based on a discussion thread post. That’s true delusion.

          • Tito Puente

            you give yourself far too much credit.. all i had to see was the comment you were endorsing to know how lost you are bubblehead..

            but i’d be happy to know the contents of your heart, comforted by the knowledge that this meant your hate had died with you.. (i don’t really feel that way, that’s awful)

            but i do feel this way..

            USN — you’re a disgrace…

            I had ancestors who were Confederate spies against the North during the Civil War, i had a great grandfather who was leading member of the Ku Klux Klan — and i’m proud of that because i realize America is a complicated idea that has forever been evolving, leading (hopefully) to more enlightened offspring…

            and the fact that i’m a liberal, educated, man who has eagerly dated outside my race or spent time investigating and appreciating the entire fabric of our many colors and backgrounds only reinforces the notion that we are forever evolving..

            but there’s not room enough to explain why the demographics, income, opportunities and stigmas surrounding black people in this country still to this day affect how their lives are likely to play out at birth.. slavery didn’t end 150 years ago, the ripples are still washing over us, and this message board is evidence of that..

            the resentment felt by white people about ‘preferential treatment’ continues to backlash, and the resentment by black people about how they’ve been screwed over from day one.. there’s truth in both, but patting each other on the back about the ignorance being bandied back and forth on this board isn’t making anyone safer, richer, happier, healthier or leading them to a better and stronger america..

            my grandmother was the first OBGYN in the history of the state of Nevada and she became national vice-president of Planned Parenthood, my mother was an executive for 30 years but she wouldn’t have been if men as simple as you were in charge of decision making along the way (and she would’ve had to wait another 30 yrs if she was black)…

            my grandfather earned a Silver Star in Korea for heroism i’m sure you feign but have never once remotely displayed, while my uncle went to West Point and was head of the JAG corps..

            My uncle (a retired Colonel) is a staunch conservative, he disagrees with most of my mother and I’s ideas on politics, but you would never in a million years see him on a message board like this looking to incite fear, hate, ignorance or whatever it is your secret handshakes require.

            And if he were to say something disparaging about the leader of this country he would always respect the office, and preface his surname with the word President.

            It’s President Obama, i’m sure you’ll be doing all you can to elect someone more sympathetic to your views that i find distasteful, but until he’s out of office, if you can’t show respect for our Commander in Chief’s office, even if you detest the man, than you sir don’t have any sense of duty or what it means to be a citizen of this great country.

            I love how you leftists always insist that Obola is “our” president, when for eight years of Reagan, four years of Bush 41 and eight years of Bush 43 you did NOTHING but heap opprobrium and disrespect on them (I remember how on Kos and DU especially he was called “Chimpy” and “Bushitler”), and now you insist we show a muslim (the ENEMY, in case you hadn’t noticed…but, hey, you’re a lib, so you probably have noticed they want to destroy us, so you’re all in with that), likely not even a citizen (why have passport records destroyed if they don’t hide something damning?), drug using and drug dealing (read his own books. He admitted to it…or was he lying just to seem “hip” and gain “street cred”?) CRIMINAL the respect YOU never showed the other side?

            NOT HAPPENING!!!

            Bill Clinton got an apology from Saturday Night Live for the parodies of him…did Reagan? Did Bush? Did even Carter, FFS?! NO! They play kid gloves on the douchebag at 1600 because it would be wayciss to show what a true imbecile and loser he is! Do you REALLY believe he got into Hahvahd because he was such a genius? I’ll tell you this: If I ran for office, my college transcripts would be open for all to see! Not because I was such a great student (I wasn’t until graduate school), but because I started out as an irresponsible, lackluster student, got kicked in the butt by reality, and then worked hard to get a decent education, and the grades reflect that! Why has O’dopesmoker sealed his? Probably because they reflect that he is what he is seen as: An affirmative action admission who didn’t do well, likely ditched every class he was enrolled for, and was given a diploma because he was black and was enrolled!

            Care to argue it? Show me one, JUST ONE, example of scholarly writing that earned him his spot on the Harvard Law Review! You can’t, BECAUSE THERE AREN’T ANY! Demonstrate one, JUST ONE, piece of legislation he shepherded through the Illinois state senate or the US senate that DIDN’T relate to taking the lives of babies! Show me his fantastic intellect that you libs cream in your jeans over…you can’t! That idiot couldn’t even pronounce “corpsman!” My guess is that he flunked lunch at Columbia and Hahvahd!

            YOU were the ones who took Nixon’s violation of the 14th Amendment, affirmative action, and made it a holy sacrament in the Church of the Almighty Liberal Socialist, and now you’re STUCK with its biggest product: A bumbling, stoned, illiterate, shallow, unqualified REJECT who couldn’t get ANYWHERE IN THE REAL WORLD ON MERIT, so he has to use his status as a negro (or Halfrican, when it suits his purposes) to get anywhere! THIS is the result of “white guilt,” and now we ALL are suffering for it!

            Call O’ChoomGang “president”???? Only when YOU apologize for the way your side treated Reagan, and both Bushes! Until then, he’s not even CLOSE to being “my” president…he’s just the AA hire stinking up the White House until a REAL president comes along!

    Of course, if this had been some white redneck with a rap sheet that just stole a 30 pk of Budweiser who was shot up, nothing of the kind would be said. Instead, we’d hear from everyone, up to and including this lefty governor, about what a deranged ‘right wing’ hick he was. There would be no concern over the feelings of the family.

    If your mother was caught on tape showing her breast to a stranger on an elevator in California (where that’s a crime) just five minutes before she was raped and killed by a public official.

    • JayWye

      NOT EVEN comparable. Brown had just committed a forcible felony (strongarm robbery,NOT a simple shoplifting),and then was stopped by the officer for walking down the middle of the street.(a common carjacking tactic; 2 guys walk down the street,one stops the car while the 2nd yanks open the door and drags out the driver.)
      Brown then attacks the officer while the cop was still in his patrol car(injuring him),resulting in the discharge of the officer’s gun during the struggle. Then Brown begins to flee,then turns and reattacks. The officer defends himself against a very large man charging him.

    To me the issue here is the people themself. If the officer used excessive force, then there is a process for dealing with it. This process does not involve lieing via the media, twisting events, rioting, stealing, violence and so on. Its disgusting what the media have done to inflame the situation. Its disgusting to me what some black leaders have done to inflame the situation. Its disgusting how some politicians are using this to their advantage. Finally, its disgusting how the overall community including judicial system does little about this. All these reporters, media providers, politicians, black leaders and so on should all face the most severe criminal charges for what they have done.

    Regarding the barrage of six bullets, two of them were grazing wounds and inconsequential. One hit is lower forearm and another hit his upper forearm and apparently ended up in his armpit. So out of the six bullets four didn’t slow him down one bit. Then came the two fatal headshots. Both in close proximity. By which time according to the cop BM was within only a few feet of flattening him.

    • warddorrity

      It must really suck to lack the price of admission to any honest debate: a respect for facts, reason and logic. That’s why you miserable left-wing fools invariably resort to every ad-hominem and logical fallacy in the book when challenged. You lose, and that’s when you resort to the only response you can muster: kick the board.

      Take a moment to think on this: by closing off all of the avenues of discussion and debate employed by civilized individuals, what do you think is left at the end of the day? And how well do you think it will go for you?

        sounds good, i’m sure you’ve rehearsed that bit a million times…

        shall i answer for you?

        you prefer to spend 39 percent of your time in forums such as this enjoying the conformity of ignorance in abundance, 37 percent of your time is spent arguing/railing at (mostly) liberals regarding hot topics in larger forums where people of color are allowed to co-mingle with you… 9 percent of your time is spent in genuine debate with people you might learn something from, but only because you’ve deemed them to be ‘good enough’ to treat (almost) equally, the other 15 percent is spent on NRA, military, and ‘koo koo’ (technical term) right wing outlets where you can mastuhrbate about the good ole’ days while counting down until the muslim in the black house is finally evicted…

    1.) I will believe that the blacks on protest in ferguson are not RACIST themselves against white people, when they finally don’t have to have a black everything to listen. They didn’t think the white chief was doing the job right, they get a black one, he makes cops sit back and watch people torch the city until a lady got shot last night then he took it further than the white chief. They arent satisfied that Hispanic Dr autopsy so they make up their own (the lawyer). And speaking of the lawyer when his family hires a white attorney then i will believe they are not the aggressors in this “race issue”.

    2.) Our brave men and women fight and die over seas fighting groups of men mostly young, who threw rocks first then Molotov then gunfire then bombs at our soldiers (authority), these people are (as i quote what i just heard from an news reporter protesting with the brown family) “ready to die”, they are organized, from all over the middle east territories, and believe they are the only ones whose opinion matters and to trash and destroy that which is owner or are who opposes their thoughts and we call them Terrorist. Wouldnt this be what you would call Michael Brown and any other thug and gang member, most citing the ere similarities and in some cases more extremities between these nightly protesters and Taliban soldiers?

    With that being said, good luck to our troops now deployed on our own soil who tonight will more than likely face Americas first true example of a home born terrorist threat that has been ignored so long that their numbers have grown with their ignorance. May their rifles be loaded with the finest of rounds

  • Erudite Mavin

    It seems the rioters and the usual leaders were more upset at the video of Brown ripping off items in the store and hitting the store clerk being released.
    It didn’t serve their narrative of nice guy becoming a victim.
    If you don’t rip off a store and hit the clerk, there won’t be a video of such.
    The rioters, looters, Molotov cocktail throwers, and the others jumping around
    laughing should spend a day in Iraq and see what real suffering is.
    Christians and others seeing their family members beheaded, rapped, and
    other killings by the 10s of thousands by ISIS terrorists

  • Arrthur Towns

    There is no doubt that young Mr Brown was not sqeaky clean. After years of systemic racial prejudice and abuse the sub culture of the young black male has become an antithesis of the american dream. Unfortunately most people do not have the willpower or mental capacity to peacefully lead in the face of rampant racism. To put it simply enough for people on this thread to realize; society does not work unless everyone is included in the conversation, black people have been left from the bargaining table for so long that a counter culture has emerged. It won’t be the first or the last time that said counter culture will express their disdain for the state if the nation and the lack of opportunity to gain wealth by conventional methods. You need to take a walk in a thug’s shoes before you condemn him/her to death based upon any one action. Many would like to think their morals are absolute, those people that believe so are lead by ignorance and naivety. It only takes moments for our entire society to fall when people are hungry and left without options. Give people that are marginalized opportunities not bullets, intimidation tactics in today’s society will fail absolutely, we the people are well aware of the power of our collective will. Treat people with respect, even those you don’t understand, we all want the same thing; to be able to take care of our families.

    • Pete

      Business Insider gave the stats on the break down of the U.S. military. The officer corps looks lie the nation.

      businessinsider.com/us-military-demographics-2014-8?op=1

      THIS STARTED IN THE 1990s.

      What discrimination? Just because there are problems in Democrat controlled cities is not our fault.

      IT IS YOUR F_CKING FAULT!

      WTFU!

      • Tito Puente

        ummmm, he never once mentioned the military…

        and the military in no way, shape or form represents the rest of American society’s demographics, or opportunities..

        • Pete

          If things are so bad & so racist how come the military looks like the nation?

          It does from the enlisted through the officer corps.

          • Tito Puente

            yes, i was waiting for you (insert your name here)

            i definitely should’ve reworked that second sentence to reflect that it meant the US military has been at the forefront of giving ‘opportunities’ to minorities..

            but as you know Pete, a lot of this has to do with the fact that a lot more minorities were willing to risk their lives (and die) for less money, providing cheap labor for the U.S. military… affluent people (whites) were able to avoid the draft, and minorities often saw the military as the one place they could go for ‘advancement’.. because at birth these people were never been offered the same chance to succeed as an average white american.. and, several laws have been put into effect in the military specifically to make sure the officer corps looks as it does today..

            the (bloated) US government is far more hands on in the military than private companies, and has been largelyresponsible for the reason our military currently reflects our (male) population as a whole..

            so my second sentence probably should’ve read more like this..

            “and the military in no way, shape or form represents the rest of American society’s demographics, when it comes to opportunities in the workplace through ought all segments of society… minorities are offered a far better chance to succeed or rise through the ranks in the US military than they are in most vocations in America”

            which is why using the demographic data of the US military in a vacuum is of little value, because many minorities still suffer from bias, pay inequity, or a lack of preparedness based on their social status at birth..

            i guess i tried to make it shorter, and wrong..

          • Tito Puente

            addendum for the man who posted and deleted, if i wasn’t clear… i respect and am grateful to anyone who served (even those without a brain who frequent this board), and i was not attempting to qualify the patriotism of those individuals…

            and this passage from the University of Illinois is helpful.

            —–
            The Vietnam War saw the highest proportion of blacks ever to serve in an American war. During the height of the U.S. involvement, 1965-69, blacks, who formed 11 percent of the American population, made up 12.6 percent of the soldiers in Vietnam. The majority of these were in the infantry, and although authorities differ on the figures, the percentage of black combat fatalities in that period was a staggering 14.9 percent, a proportion that subsequently declined. Volunteers and draftees included many frustrated blacks whose impatience with the war and the delays in racial progress in America led to race riots on a number of ships and military bases, beginning in 1968, and the services’ response in creating interracial councils and racial sensitivity training. . . .

            The participation of Americans of African descent in the U.S. military has a long and distinguished history. But although African Americans have participated in all American wars, they have sometimes faced almost as bitter a hostility from their fellow Americans as from the enemy. Nevertheless, particularly since the 1970s, the U.S. military has made a serious effort at racial integration, and while much remains to be done, the military has achieved a degree of success in this area that surpasses most civilian institutions

          • Drakken

            There is a reason you leftist progressives hate the military, you are not fit to lick the boots of those us who have served and the fact you resent and hate the military and its culture, because you are weak and less than useless kind of makes my day.

      For every black person killed by a white person I can find 2 or more white people killed by a black person.

      In this case we know that Michael Brown was high on marijuana and had just robbed a store and assaulted a minority ( but a minority without special privileges). We do not know if the cop was in fear of his life. Officers need officer cameras to be worn at all times so that people who have been fed racial BS do not lie about them.

            My ancestor fought in the Civil War. After the war they were still in New Orleans and the wife was writing we need you back on the farm.

            That was the farm they had after they had been induced to move off better corn ground south of the Mason Dixy line.

            So I don’t owe crap.

            O top of that 1/2 my familial line was nit here before 1960s.

            So check your stupid dumb black privilege at the door. Better yet check it permanently before some Hispanic does it for you California.

            You know the Democrat party that you vote for is trading you in. That is what the border is about. Think about it. Hispanics are growing so fast that Ray Nagin could not get elected in New Orleans anymore. You are being replaced.

            While you are on the subject of slavery. it was a black man that turned indentured service into slavery. It was Africans that sold your ancestors. You don’t b_tch at them because you know you would get beat down. There were 80 to 90% death rates on the coast for white people. there was no way Europe could have done that by themselves. No, it was African tribes selling other African tribes that they had conquered in battle. If there were not Europeans on the coast those conquered tribes would have been slaughtered and you would not be here b_tching.

          • Tito Puente

            a couple facts for “Pete the Civil War martyr”

            a) I’m white, technically at least, and the very small portion of me that isn’t white is Native American Indian — and of course the African part of my DNA that every single human being on earth has, including you.

            b) you used induced incorrectly

            c) my ancestors also fought in the Civil War, for the Confederacy, in fact, I was the first (white American) person in my entire family that was born outside the South.

            c) this is not english: ” better corn ground south”, neither is this “O top of that 1/2 my familial line was nit here before 1960s.”

            d) blah, blah, blah, you’ve assumed that i’m black, while i’ve never said anything that would imply such a thing… in fact elsewhere on this post i’ve already made that plain as day, except for those who live 24 hrs a day in the dark…

            e) trading who in? and why do you assume i vote when you obviously think i’m a minority who’s worthless and would be too lazy to do so?

            f) i’ve got news for you kiddo, they’re your ancestors too… you my friend are an african-american, which is part of the reason i object to the term, it gets so confusing and you’re already a moron…

            g) blah blah blah, ad nauseum, as you reveal yourself to be exactly what i claimed you were..

            h) evolution is killing whatever ancient values it is that you and your brethren ascribe to, i understand how painful that must be to lose your place ‘superiority for no other reason than the luck of the draw by birth’ — but it might be time to go out there and open your eyes…

            i) so what do you have to say to the white american who has a richer American history than you, more claim to the ground you’re standing on than you, had a better education, and embraces the vast cultural differences that make this the greatest country on earth?

            j) hold on, i gotta go back to the Pentagon and hang out with a three star Admiral like i did when my Uncle got pinned as a full bird Colonel, his Lieutenant Colonel pin is stuck on a piece of my artwork that i made with all my liberal friends =– right next to my “I voted sticker” with the Red, White & Blue on it — i often admire them while i sip out of my 82nd Airborne cup.

            I’m sorry America has passed you by Pete, but perhaps if you weren’t determined to act like someday it would come back to the good ole’ days you could appreciate the present…

            good luck with that…

            a.) I don’t care what you are. I am not prejudiced base don race. I am prejudiced against socialists, communists and other stupid people. You qualify in spades.

            b) induce verb (used with object), induced, inducing.
            1. to lead or move by persuasion or influence, as to some action or state of mind: “to induce a person to buy a raffle ticket.”

            c) I am sorry if you do not know all the colloquialisms or slang of America. Most people would understand me. I usually only run across grammar or soup N@ZIs in a gay forum. Are you gay? On the down Low?

          • Tito Puente

            i’ll have to give you induced here, i still think it’s an awfully poor choice of word, but there’s (almost) nothing i hate more than someone who tries to act all smart (me), correcting someone he accuses of being totally ignorant (you) — not owning up to his mistakes when called on it..

            but if you aren’t prejudiced Pete, why did you continue to try and get a rise out me with racist rhetoric over things you perceived a ‘black guy like me’ would find offensive?

            and i am totally gay (so let me know if anyone on this board is hot will you?), although i am not nor have i ever been a socialist, a communist, or stupid..

            but, in an interesting coincidence, i just watched “Good Night and Good Luck” again last night — and i’m sure Joseph McCarthy must be one of your personal heroes..

          • Pete

            I have no compunction asking if you are gay. When 90% of the time someone points out spelling or grammar mistakes it has been a gay person. This is what I have seen on forums. They point out that mistake and ignore the ideal the person was trying to get across and move on. The one they really like to point out is the mistake of using your for you’re. Spell check doesn’t catch it.

            I see asking that question as reconnaissance by fire. Maybe you admit it or maybe you don’t. If you admit it it doesn’t mean I automatically believe you. I look for consistency over time. So lie if you want. It makes no difference in the end. You’ll just be embarrassed.

            Asking you about the events at Compton is not prejudice. The events are real and they have been documented by the LA Times. I have the ‘clipping’. You are so sure you are on the correct side of things and yet you let that go by without protest. The Compton comments was reconnaissance by fire again. It failed. It went over your head because you are one ignorant FUBAR dude.

            However,even their math doesn’t add up,because 13M minus 11.3M is 1.7 million. Which does not equal 8 million deaths.

            But it’s not relevant,because the OP is referring to American blacks of the present era.

            83% of murdered white people were killed by a white person and 91% of murdered black people were killed by a black person. The reason? Seems about equal to me. 8% isn’t that much of a difference.

          • Pete

            The ratio is VERY IMPORTANT. The RACE HUSTLER INDUSTRY (which is a multi-billion dollar industry) & DEMOCRATS use it to cudgel their political opponents into submission.

            Every time the LEFTWING NEWS Media and the Democrats publicize a killing (justified or unjustified) by a white person of a black person they want political concessions. They want increased political power.

            So this is very important.

    • unionville

      Blacks were upwardly mobile during some of the worst racism in this country. After slavery and before civil rights. That puts to lie your contention that the problems with todays black youths is “systemic racial prejudice”.

      The wounds of the black community are self-inflicted. And they are largely due to the breakdown of the black family. And this has occurred as racism has ebbed and opportunities not only opened up wide for blacks, but often were, and are, outright handed to them.

      As each new day dawns, a lie that the “eye witnesses” have told is exposed. This behavior that is being exhibited in Ferguson on the part of some of the blacks reminds me of the good ole white boys who used to lie about blacks committing crimes when they knew they hadn’t. And their cries for the death of the police officer is reminiscent of the lynch mobs.

      • Arrthur Towns

        Honestly, I don’t have the time or the motivation to respond to the entirety of your post. I am very well aware that opinions about race are deeply rooted and almost impossible to change in a fully developed adult. I will attempt to share with you an anecdote of my own personal experience to illustrate my point. I was raised in the underprivileged neighborhood of Newark, NJ. Most of my peers have fallen into the hopelessness of the inner city but I was always focused on rising above the fracas. I earned an excellent education, I bought a home, and I am primarily concerned with the well being of my family. One conversation with me will make you realize that my perspective is well thought out and all inclusive. We (humans) are much more alike than we are different but there is a primal aspect to our Group dynamics and thinking patterns that makes us all want to love the group we ascribe to and hate others. Racism, sexism, and even sports rivalries draw their energy from our natural inclination to form exclusive groups. Not to brag, but I am one of the most trustworthy people you will ever meet, I have no malice in my heart towards other people yet I am constantly harassed by patrolmen even though I drive excellently. I never get pulled over for moving violations but rather because I look like what many would consider a thug, young, black, & urban, with proud shoulders. Take for example 3 weeks ago, I stopped by my cousin’s house on my way home from grad school and I was parked in front of his house waiting for him to arrive. Without any semblance of reasonable suspicion 4 cop cars rolled up and forced me to get out my car and searched the entire car. I wasn’t worried because I know I am an upstanding citizen, but I was pissed to be inconvenienced. The whole time I was telling them how illegal their actions were and the only response I got was a laugh coupled with a proclamation “we are the feds.” This is just one of innumerable instances were I have felt utterly disrespected by government officials. The thing about respect is it goes both ways, you have to give respect to get it. Black males feel disrespected EVERY day of their life, if it isn’t by the cops then its a store owner, if not a store owner then by the person conducting a job interview, etc. Affirmative action is a MYTH, it does not work, and racism is just as rampant as it has ever been (as clearly evidenced in this comment thread). The biggest difference today is that racists hide themselves so well because they do not have the confidence to voice in public how they really feel. It is amazing to me how self centered and exclusive people can be, there are good and bad people in every race, no race is a monolithic group, it is only due to ignorance that such stereotypes are conveyed. If you were stopped regularly by the police simply based upon your appearance, you would start to hate them too, like I said we are so alike its pathetic that we haven’t realized it yet. But then again, most people are sheep and just think as they are told, no skin off my back, overcoming the struggle has made me exponentially stronger than those of you who have lived the easy life. I will destroy your delusions of superiority; I love being black.

        • Max

          “I am constantly harassed by patrolmen even though I drive excellently” “If you were stopped regularly by the police simply based upon your appearance, you would start to hate them too”

          I too had been constantly harassed by police and even given tickets I did not deserve. Why? Because of the car I used to drive. Apparently, police get into the habit of profiling someone or something. The problem of course is this is human nature. And as much as this has frustrated and angered me, I still appreciate that they are there.

          As for you, the likely reason you are stopped as much as you are is that the police routinely are on the lookout or chase for someone black who has committed a crime. If you were old and with grey hair, I doubt they would have much interest in you.

          As for why you are doing as well as you are, the reason is you work hard. This is what is lacking with so many people in this country – too lazy to do what needs to be done.

    Personally, I believe the police could not have screwed this situation up more if they had planned it ahead. I am white, republican, and respect the law…but the police are out of control. They are loaded up with military gear they are not trained to use, they believe citizens themselves are a danger, they are hyped up on their power..as they should be since they are not subject to military discipline…or really any discipline…the worst I have ever heard a cop being punished with is paid vacation. Most of them are doing a hard job the best they can…but a minority are addicited to the power and control. The majority are completley silent on the abuse the minority of cops heap on ordinary citizens. I am a white, middle class male..and I have been subject to some of this abuse..imagine being a minority. Nothing to do with Ferguson…demilitarize the police…or have them subject to military justice!

            prove the ‘dishonesty’ of my unbelievably misrepresentative statement ‘killing our unarmed citizens”

            do you oppose the plural notion? if you want to make that singular so we’re only talking about this case, i’m fine with that.. but if it’s something else i would have to disagree vehemently.. unless you eloquently convinced me otherwise..

            being proven wrong is knowing, because when you believe something wholeheartedly the only way you will believe the opposite is to be faced with irrefutable evidence, logic or experience — leading to knowing.. which is much more powerful than belief..

            so i urge you to Prove me wrong..

            i really have to go, sorry you got here late… there’s lots of my posts for you to pick apart i’ve been here for hours singlehandedly carrying my rebel (liberal) flag — so it’s too bad really, you seem like someone i could’ve drawn into actual debate..

    Before his Benghazi betrayal, there was Extortion 17. Hussein’s traitorous offenses were meticulously outlined in “Betrayed: The Shocking True Story of Extortion 17 as told by a Navy SEAL’s Father.”

In my small, NE Georgia country..95% white, we have had 2 severe acts of violence against citizens in the past 2 years. One a white young pastor was gunned down in his vehicle for trying to council a young drug user and being fingered as her dealer.. (county had to pay 2 million dollars of our tax money to the widow..) In the other , an 18 year old baby had his nose blown off and was put in a coma when the local swat team…working on a tip that someone had sold 50 dollars worth of drugs in the driveway..tossed a flash grenade in his crib..only to find no drug dealer,no drugs, no weapons in the house…and the mother was told that the baby was just fine while she was hancuffed on the floor..until the lifeflight was called…oh, and they were out of town visiters…no police officers even lost a days pay for either of these abuses…but they did bring a tank.

    America will be a racist nation until Blacks can commit crimes freely without any accountability to the law. This is the premise of the African-American community, Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton, et al.

    Robbing a convenience store of $50 worth of merchandise does not warrant being shot by a policeman. True, it doesn’t. But the commission of a crime may result in the police wanting to speak to you.

    If you weigh almost 300 pounds and are a 6’4″ tall then you are an imposing and intimidating figure. If you threaten someone with bodily harm they are likely to attempt to defend themselves. At this point, as they say, sh..t happens.

    The policeman wasn’t looking for trouble and killing anyone was the furthest thought from his mind that day. If he had killed a white felon there would be no story in the media. Unfortunately his incident involved a black person. That changes everything!

    Why?

      I agree with most of your post but this is what Hillary said:

      one night and decided they’d go kill some Americans,” Clinton said.
      “What difference – at this point, what difference does it make?”

      You taking this out of context is like quoting Sarah Palin saying “can see Russia from My house.”

    Rodney King had a passenger with him the night he resisted arrest.

    Michael Brown had a friend with him the day he decided to rob a convenience store and attack a policeman. Michael Brown is dead but his friend walked away without a scratch.
    Why is it that these “racist, blood thirsty” policemen choose to only shoot or beat one black man but never harm their companions?

    I feel so sorry for Officer Darren Wilson and his family. Before any of the facts came out, he was tried and convicted. They expect the facts to be presented to the Grand Jury this week.
    Even if Darren Wilson is exonerated for the death of thug Michael Brown, this man’s life will never be the same.

    I do sympathise with your point of view in this case, which for me as a european may be far away still is not, to some extent – we’re gradually getting similar conditions. Still there was one sentence where I would like to add a thought, and that was ‘Aircraft were ordered to fly at least 3,000 feet over Ferguson airspace after police said their helicopters were fired on from the ground’.

    Helicopters: Can you explain me why we have had these military-style machines patrolling us for – as far as I can see – about 15 years now? They are also being abused for surveillance purposes. I certainly don’t sympathise with the majority population of that place, but I do understand their reaction with regard to their reaction to this dangerous humming-top nuisance. And I am still waiting for a journalist to take up this issue…

Also, you forget that the Obama admin supports Israel 100% so your whole narrative is kind of off there. On Israel, you, Obama, and Holder are in agreement that they can do no wrong.

    Question…..?

    Was Brown a bully and a thug in elementary school, middle school, or high school?

    Is there any evidence or records of these kind of crimes as a minor?

  • Gyst53

    The saddest part of this entire story, is that we have done this to ourselves, under the guise of individual freedoms with no morale compass (God inspired wisdom) to guide us….. self-dicipline must be taught by firm adult moral examples, not just to do your own thing and hope for the best!

  • gwedem5995

    After what we are seeing in Ferguson, it is no wonder police have such a hard job of conveying anything to the people. I feel wholeheartedly that Brown was a thug and was well on his way to being shot, seriously hurt or in jail. I am so sick of the media trying to portray him or trayvon as angels. I don’t blame the police for the conditions, I blame the people in Ferguson. The one I feel sorry for the most is the police officer (who I believe was in fear of his life and I know different people react differently in such situations) and the owner of this store where Michael Brown stole the stuff. I don’t believe for one minute that this was the very first time Michael Brown did something like this. When you have this pattern, you end up on the wrong side.

  • Mark Clemens

    I heard on the radio this morning, by a Missouri State Trooper Captain (Johnson) a vast majority of people arrested last night WERE NOT FROM FERGUSON. These people are the Night time agitators. Probably paid by Jackson & Sharp to stir the fires of racism.

    • Steve Gregg

      False. 53 of 78 arrested in Ferguson were locals from the greater St. Louis area.

  • Steve in Virginia

    Although this was a tragedy, the media is ascribing all blame to the police, who were merley responding to a citizen’s call for help. The death of Michael Brown is cause for mourning and also reflection. Had he and his friend not entered the convenience store with criminal intent, he would still be alive. Had he not attempted to disarm the police officer, he would still be alive. Had he not charged toward the police officer after his unsuccessful attempt to seize the pistol, he would still be alive. These are all facts that seem to have escaped most of the media covering this tragedy and they certainly have been over looked by the racial opportunists like Sharpton, who have descended on Ferguson to seek more public notice, or like Eric Holder who is trying to put the entire law enforcement on trial for thee death of a thug who precipitated his own death through his own misconduct. Had Sharpton and Holder not rushed to judgment that the police were solely responsible for this death, the violent reaction may not have been so great!, but that is not what “sells” in our age of immediate press coverage. Some reflection is needed to explain ALL the facts, not merely those that support the position taken by the media and racial opportunists. But that, unfortunately, is not how things are now done in America!

  • Ang Eckard

    I am so very upset about this situation, at first I thought NOW police brutality is going to be dealt with, then the FACTS started to come in and this case is NOT at all a police brutality issue this case is about a HIGHLY DECORATED POLICE OFFICER defending himself against a gang member who was high on drugs who assaulted him shoving him into his police car trying to get the officers gun and then charging him! As anyone knows that you can not assault a police officer and try to take his weapon you know that so why try because you WILL suffer the consequences for your actions and rightly so, a split second decision has to be made at that point! Now, if you people would like to see real police brutality look up Kelly Thomas, Ronald bell Robert Leone, David Castellni, Christopher Harris, Cassandra Feuerstein, Angela Garbarino, Jose Guerrena and not to downplay Rodney King but by far Kelly Thomas died and the tape and pictures of him are horrific and the officers did NOT get charged, by the way ALL WHITE! At a time when we should be joining together on the police brutality, it has been turned into a race war and should not be about a black man being killed by a white police officer, as I see it!

    • Steve Bryant

      Far from targeting black thugs, the po-lice are afraid of them, and rightly so. I’m betting that the number of po-lice who simply turn and ignore their criminal behavior vastly outnumbers those who stand up to the criminal activity. If the po-lice were respected in this country, and the population knew with certainty that they would always challenge criminal behavior, tragic situations like this would only occur when the officer’s life is in danger……..whoops! What a coincidence

Many in the black race have done very well but far to many refuse to do good(they call it acting white) I do not see an answer to this problem.

    i dont understand how people can comment about thuggish and how he is a big black man and ext. First of all I really dont agree with the whole he was charging at a police officer trying to take a gun, I would be that stupid to charge at a anyone with a gun first of im going to get a way from that person I sure he knws that guns can kill i dont think he was that stupid, secondly it still gives no right to shoot a person several times first of all if he was so threatening why he did just shoot him in a leg to me the officer was shooting to kill point blank and then from the reports and videos Mr.Brown laid there for some hours before putting a sheet or calling response and now we have a secret fundrasier for the cop because he is white by the KKK are you serious!!!! this is why people go crazy its totally people not thinking before speaking…. so all these foulish people talking bout thuggish and this big black man with all that to the side how would you feel if it was your son of the opposite race, no one can say about that in that same situaion.

    • Tim Berton

      You can’t analyze the behavior of another person based on what you think is stupid. Most people would think committing a strong arm robbery for a box of cigars, walking down the middle of a street and refusing to comply with a police order to walk on the sidewalk were all stupid. Yet we know they all happened in this case.

  • Hotdogger71

    Brown’s buddy Johnson, who was all over the media pushing the victim story, assisted in the robbery. He had EVERY REASON to LIE about the situation. If there was a struggle in the patrol unit with these TWO guys, the officer was in a very dangerous situation.

    Imagine one officer vs. two suspects, one of them gigantic and possibly hyped up on drugs who just committed a felony robbery and a felony battery of an officer. They start running back toward the officer. From 30 feet they could have been on top of him in less than 2 seconds. One could take the officers legs the other could take his arms and disable him, take his weapon, and kill him.

    Want to see how quickly two suspects vs. one officer can go bad? Look at this: http://youtu.be/Vxm_Drs1zio?t=1m58s

  • marco polo

    I think it’s completely appropriate to release the video. Anyone who suggest otherwise was hoping to display Brown as an angel. Just because you’re dead doesn’t change what you did while alive.

  • Rodney Hungerferd

    There isn’t a message board on the Internet in which someone isn’t blaming it on Obama. It is pathetic. We have yet another racially charged shooting of a black citizen, of the type we’ve seen for years, and yet it is Obama’s fault? Because, what… race relations were all great before him!? Was he responsible for OJ? Watts? Jim Crow? Was he responsible for slavery? My friend posted a story on FB about the alarming # of school shootings SINCE Newtown, and someone just had to say this will continue as long as Obama’s in the WH. That’s stupid. As though gun violence started when he was elected! Forget hundreds of years of American violence worship. For some it just always goes back to Obama. A number of people here noted that the Obama admin is ruining race relations in this country, though NOT ONE has said how. Not one has offered some incident, policy, or statement as proof of this assertion. It leads me to suspect that the thing Obama is doing to ruin race relations for them is… being black. I’ve kinda reserved judgement on whether this unfocused hatred of him is racist because the right wing will hate any left wing president and vice versa- that has nothing to do with race, that’s just chimp-level tribal mentality– displayed in abundance on this board. But reading this board, and seeing the continuing lack of any actual specific beefs (Benghazi? Obamacare? Please…you sound like an idiot with that) it is hard not to conclude that there is a powerful racial component to the vitriol leveled at Obama.

    To all who are about to disagree, you must examine the possibility that you’re racist.
    Message boards are bad for us, they perpetuate this lie that everyone’s opinion counts equally. You will never know as much as you think you already know now. The cliche is true: the more you learn the less you know. If someone is sure of their opinion it is almost certainly ill-informed nonsense. When you see a true expert on something they generally are careful to outline the limits of what they know, and surround their assertions with caveats. When a dolt shoots his mouth off he takes one small questionable factoid or personal anecdote and thinks he can extrapolate the origin of the universe from it.

    • littlesuzi

      The extreme right and the extreme left are both brainwashed idiots who are destroying this country.

  • Rodney Hungerferd

    I’m struck by how closely this shooting parallels Trayvon Martin’s. The first we hear about Trayvon the story goes: a sweet black youth got shot by a predatory cop. The pic with the story is Trayvon from some years prior, a fresh faced, happy young teen. The black community is outraged. We all are. Two weeks later some disturbing facts start to leak out: Trayvon had been displaying some fairly aggressive behavior in the time prior to the incident, and the story now has some new pictures: Zimmerman bloody from Trayvon assaulting him, and a more recent picture of Trayvon, which shows a far angrier and more intimidating visage, flipping us off, smoking weed. The nation is polarized.
    Sound familiar? First reports had Michael Brown down on his knees, “hands up, don’t shoot,” and he’s headed to college next week. A week later we see him violently knocking over a convenience store in his own community, and the story is he’s attacking the cop in the squad car!
    Does this suggest that the black community is out of line, that they are unrealistic, biased, lazy, thugs, willing to forgive any black person any crime because they are an oppressed minority? To say that is to conveniently forget hundreds of years of “keeping them down”- of unfair treatment, of racial discrimination, economic marginalization, lynchings, systematic disadvantaging, social neglect. Do you think that if you were born in the ghetto you could escape the gravity of hundreds of years of oppression? You’d be stronger than most. Do you think the explosion of anger and protest in Ferguson comes out of nowhere, that black people are just making this anger up? How long do you expect people to watch their children grow up with scant hope- if any- before they do something, anything, to express their fury? I find it hard to blame them.
    Yet, I find it hard not to blame them: self-defeating cultural norms are a fact of many black communities, and poor communities regardless of race. This is hard to deny. And violence by blacks is no more acceptable than from any other ethnicity. Individual blacks can lift themselves out of this by dint of hard work, within the system, this is true– but it would be remiss not to point out how much harder it is for them, and how many more hazards they face along the way.
    It is impossible to miss that opinions are formed from what your pre-existing mindset is. Blacks see one America, whites see another. The Right sees one America, the Left another- radically different- America.

    The fact that Michael Brown was a 6′ 4″ and 292 lbs street thug and bully is not mentioned in any of the lame stream media. At 6’4″, Michael be a young person nor does his 292 lbs size make him only an 18 year old kid. Even Jessie Jackson would cross over to the other side of the street if he saw Michael walking towards him at night.

    I guess there should be 2 different sets of laws in America: one for blacks who commit crimes and another set of laws for whites and Asians.
    There may have to be a 3rd category for Hispanics and of course, Muslims are unable to commit a crime in the US.
    If a black policeman had murdered a white felon (and Michael Brown had committed a felony) would there be any protests (riots), any looting, any gun shots fired at police?
    Would the White House be sending the Attorney General to investigate?
    Would Dr. Baden be waiving his usual $10,000.00 fee to do a 2nd autopsy for the felon?
    Would black leaders give full scholarships to all of the white man’s children like black leaders have done for Brown’s brothers and sisters and would they give $20,000.00 to the mother of the felon?
    Would the black policeman be threatened and held responsible for a murder?
    Would they call that shooting a hate crime?
    Recently a young boy was murdered by 3 black men. Where’s the outrage from the black community?
    Why is the “knock out game” still happening across the country and why haven’t black leaders like Sharpton, Jackson and Obama condemned that vicious crime?

  • Guano Genesis

    Trayvon, Brown, and OJ Simpson – who all who attacked or murdered white folks and thus became thug heroes to the black community. When hundreds of young black men are gunned down in Chicago alone every year and there is ZERO black community action, it is impossible to believe that blacks actual give a damn about Brown or Trayvon or any other thug.
    We should be grateful that black american is standing up and telling us what they really believe – that white folks are devils to be attacked and killed, and that assaulting whites or robbing them is not only OK but morally correct – a payback for unspecified white crimes of the past. Their attacks on politicians and police are making it increasingly difficult for law abiding and honest police officers to do their job and maintain the peace.
    It is so important to support police officers and not believe black racist BS, and to defend yourselves. Ferguson is one of many reasons why the second amendment is a critical civil right and why the enemies of freedom so desperately want to eliminate it. It is ever more critical to be armed and to practice self defense. If someone throws a molotov cocktail at your home, shoot them. If they attack you or your family violently, shoot them until they stop. In Brown’s case it took 6 shots to stop him. Trayvon required only one shot – although how Zimmerman managed to restrain himself from firing repeatedly is beyond me. OJ – well we know that story don’t we. The fact that violent attackers of white Americans are black way too frequently is even more of a reason to defend yourselves – no justice, R.I.P. thug. The black community is reaching out to teach white Americans a message, and we need to let them know we heard them – and we need to send them a message. I never wanted an us v. them relationship with blacks – I guess I’m just “acting white.”

  • liberalloons

    When I was taking my concealed weapons class 18 yrs ago, one of the things the instructor( a retired police captain) emphasized was – You can’t allow your firearm to fall into the hands of a criminal, not only are chances good that you’ll be killed with it, other innocent people will be victimized by your loss, count on it. In a struggle involving your firearm, use whatever force is necessary to prevent it from falling into the wrong hands.

    Great job Officer Wilson. One less stealing, assaultive, violent thug on the streets. All these racist people in Ferguson protesting saying they wont be satisfied until the officer is prosecuted for something he hasn’t even been charged with. Everyone in Ferguson is rushing to judgement against the officer, and the only credible eye witness is the officer. It doesn’t matter what the race of the officer is. If the officer is threatened, they have the right to protect themselves, and the public. Officers go through polygraph, and extensive background checks prior to acceptance into their particular police department. Michael Brown was a low life scum. Pray for the officer, not the racist people inciting hate and division. These people wont be happy until they have an all black jury, black DA, that hands down a death sentence. Im not racist, im white, my wife is black, and we have a mixed child. But these crazy people in Ferguson , Michael Brown’s family, their lawyer, and Al Sharpton sure are. I love people of all races. We are all brothers and sisters. Stop racism, hate, division, and segregation.

        You are an amazing idiot and a jerk. And you are also a prime example of the type of person that is CAUSING this type of unnecessary violence, so for that I must thank you for proving my point.

        At NO TIME did i ever condone any type of violence, it is only you who put words in my mouth.

        My point was simple, but still not dumbed down enough for a simpleton such as yourself, so let me try it again.

        There are lots of crimes committed by blacks against whites, too, but they are not handled the same way. There is a double standard of what is considered acceptable. Putting words in my mouth and implying that I condone that it is “OK to shoot anyone who is black” is the EXACT type of thing people like Al Sharpton are doing by assuming the cop shot the person just because he was black. You imply that whites are racist, and therefore all incidents of white on black crime are racists, so rioting and acting like a fool is totally OK.

        It is not OK, whites in general are not racists (my wife is not white), but at the same time, always being considered a racist just because you are white gets really old. And I, at least, am pretty tired of hearing it.

    Are white men mad because white women love our black men?? Maybe that’s why black men are being gunned down because of white men frustration over white women not wanting them. Is that the problem??

    Here we go with the character assassination! Killing supposed “thugs” is legal now because he listened to rap music. He may have stolen some cigars too! If there was a rash of Black police shooting White kids for walking down the street, the communities would be up in arms. Please do not characterize Mr. Brown as a criminal who deserved to die, especially since we do not have all the facts.

    • Sam

      “Please do not characterize Mr. Brown as a criminal who deserved to die”

      Sheesh….

      He died for failing to obey a simple law, for failing to respond to a simple request by the police officer, for assaulting a police officer, and for threatening the life of a police officer. By the way, he also committed the crime of theft and assault of a shop owner. This absolutely makes him not only a criminal but a dangerous criminal as well. His dieing was due to his own disrespectful and unlawful actions.

      What is beyond amazing is how so many disregard this. Had this bully succeeded in killing the police officer, not one of these ‘Brown’ supporters would have cared about the officer and his family. Probably, they would have argued that brown was justified in doing so. This tells you volumes about these people. They truly are dangerous and disgusting.

      Thug is not the new n word, cracker is the new n word. Reverse racism. All the black people mad their ancestors were slaves, now they want to keep white people down. I was not even born during slavery, and my ancestors didnt own slaves. Stop generalizing all white people as racist. Just because a white officer uses lethal force, doesnt make him racist. The officer had an orbital fracture. He attacked the officer, and he deserved to be killed no matter what his skin color was.

    • arizona jack

      First,that convenience store video was fuzzy. No proof that that was Michael brown. His death was tragic,yes,but it does not justify rioting,looting,burning,and hurting people who had no part in the killing,just because they happen to NOT BE BLACK! I witnessed the 1965 race riots. I witnessed the riots after Dr. King was murdered. I witnessed the Rodney King riots,where an innocent truck driver was dragged from his truck and hit in the head with a rock by some punk,just because he happened to be the “wrong” color in the wrong place at the wrong time. The look of utter joy on the face of that guy after he nearly killed Reginald Denny,made me want to lose my lunch.In my work I deal with African American men,a lot. The overwhelming majority of them,are hard working,responsible,respectful people who deserve respect in return,because they earned it.(Yes,respect must be earned. It is not an entitlement,and is not the same as fear.) However,there are a small majority of black males who give them all a bad rap. Perpetual scowl,menacing attitude,big mouth. They actually live out the stereotypes,that blacks hate so much. It makes people afraid of ALL black men. My suggestion is,if you want to be taken seriously,and be treated like a man,do the following. Stop acting like a punk,put on some big boy pants,learn to speak english,and complete a sentence without “M-F” every other word,and treat others the way you would want to be treated. Not all white people are the enemy. In fact,you may be your own worse enemy,when you foster stereotypes.

  • Jack Rogers

    They say Brown is the victim. Because he is dead does not necessarily make him the victim. It could be also true that Officer Wilson is a victim, and by extension Ferguson and America. It looks very possible that a marauding thug’s strong arm tactics provoked his own demise and the demise of his community. Our media and corrupt judicial system isn’t interested in the truth. The media is interested in drama and ratings. The attorneys are only interested in winning. The truth is always the first thing to be hijacked as special interests vie to legitimize their own agendas, from the looters who fill their liquor cabinet, to the lawyers who look to line their pockets, and to the politicians who will say anything to bolster their popularity and garner votes.

    There is no such thing as equal justice in this country, not if you are black that…there is justice and then there is Just Us as the KKK are planning to descend on Ferguson now…smdh.

    “… I’ve never been able to shake a conviction that if you walk the proverbial mile in another man’s shoes, you inoculate yourself against your biases toward him. I believe empathy follows understanding.

    Surely we could use some empathy just now. As America races toward a future in which no one race is numerically dominant, it remains largely a nation of cultural illiterates content to interpret various Others through lenses of stereotype and canard. If this has been a bonanza for certain politicians (“Elect me and I’ll keep you safe from the gays/the Mexicans/the blacks!”), let us never forget that this ignorance, these unconscious biases for and against, have real-world impact.

    Michael Brown lying dead in the street is seemingly one image thereof. Here’s another:

    Last Thursday at 2:30 in the morning, seven teenagers, ages 18 and 19, broke into the home of basketball star Ray Allen. Allen, who played last season for the Miami Heat, was not home, but his wife was. Waking to find strangers in her bedroom, she screamed and they ran.

    Police say the teenagers, who had been at a party at a house near Allen’s in the tony South Florida suburb of Coral Gables, didn’t think anybody was home and simply wanted to see what it looked like inside. The kids were questioned and released. Authorities have thus far declined to prosecute, saying — incredibly — that under Florida law, there was no crime with which the group could be charged.

    It ought not surprise you to learn that these kids were white Hispanics. And I challenge you — I double-dog dare you — to tell me seven black kids who invaded a home in a wealthy neighborhood in the middle of the night would have likewise gotten off with a good talking-to. Black kids are strangers to such lavish benefit of the doubt….”

    Not much meat on this one. It’s been mentioned but not investigated, that Brown had a juvenile record that is sealed. There must be some memory of the events out there that is not sealed. If you had heard that The Gentle Giant had NO police record, this is why. He would have had one after the robbery, had he survived it. Those records need to be exposed and the whole idea that juveniles should get that blanket treatment needs to be reexamined. Same deal with Trayvon.

    So sick and twisted is our left government. They are running this country in the ground. They always seek to distort the facts, just plain lie (its ok if your not caught). Truth and facts do not matter when you have an agenda based on enslavement and greed. The sad thing is that there is an ever growing police brutality and an over zellous and military style police force. Yet this is not the case to bring to light. Its a damn if you do damn of you dont for the police. All the left is doing is giving approval to street thugs and given into a culture of lawlessness. The police and national guard should leave and see how long the left can live in there city with all there innocent children.

      What is wrong with the truth?

      For one thing, it didn’t include the part that shows him paying for his purchase. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=maA1FUJqhew For another, it had nothing to do with the shooting. For a third, it didn’t show an offense for which the death penalty is appropriate.

      • Tj Long

        Paid for the items? Is that why the clerk followed him to the door, to congratulate him on his purchase? Maybe to tell him he was the 1000th customer and he won a prize?
        It wasn’t the reason for the police officer stopping him, but it does show his character and possible mindset a few minutes later when the officer asked him to get out of the middle of the road. The shoving of a much smaller man shows he has an aggressive, violent nature. It shows he is a bully.
        The shooting was because he physically attacked that police officer and punched him in the head. It is all coming out. He caused his own death. I’m sorry if the truth hurts. Leave the officer alone.

        Even the Lt. Governor said it was stupid for the Governor to make that premature statement. How can he know it all if it will take the Grand Jury till mid-October to come to a conclusion? Attorney General Eric Holder is also irresponsible in assuming the guilt of the officer and insinuating this is all the officer’s fault. It is dangerous for them to do so. DANGEROUS as a subset of the black community is violent and bent on hurting white people, including the officer, the officer’s family, and the entire community of Ferguson, Mo.

          • Tj Long

            Please reread my post, a–hole. It says the officer shot him because he assaulted the officer. He also went for the officer’s gun. Had the officer not shot him, he may have gotten the officer’s gun, and the officer may have been killed. The guy was 6 foot 4 and 300 pounds of lard. Very scary for any normal sized cop.

            If it is proven that the officer killed him in cold blood, I will go with that. Until then, lets stop threatening the officer, his family, and the ENTIRE community of Ferguson, crazy mob people!
            Also, lets ask black people to stop the violent crimes, including robberies, home invations, car jackings, rape, and drive by shootings. Why doesn’t Eric Holder mention anything about the black crime that is OUT OF CONTROL? He and Obama don’t mention an thing about that. They only say that the police need to be checked. WTF? If the blacks were at home, off the streets, studying and going to work, we wouldn’t have a race problem in this country. Instead, 50% of black males are unemployed. How do they make a living, besides welfare, stealing, selling drugs???? I’m so sorry if the truth hurts, but if you want to know why white people dislike blacks, that’s the f***ing reason!

            Any time we call a white person a RACIST, remember that there is a subgroup in the black community that are the MOST RACIST of all

            Which is more racist? Systematic, centuries-long social and economic discrimination that leaves a large group of people poor, uneducated, malnourished to the point of stunted intellectual development, and poisoned by toxins in the environment, or the victims of that discrimination who attempt to fight back against it?

            They just wanted to kill the white man for being white.

            Maybe they just wanted to punish a truckdriver who ran over a teenager.

            Or maybe they realized that a situation involving a white perp and a black victim would not receive proper justice from the police and court system.

            Or maybe every single one of them had a lifetime of experiences of white men who were willing and eager to degrade, hurt, and kill black people for being black.

            You blame the people of Ferguson for rioting, but before that the police reacted to peaceful demonstrations with armored vehicles, storm-trooper dress, pointed weapons, and (unconstitutional) orders to disperse and leave public areas. Who caused the riots?

    We have all been told that we shouldn’t profile or stereotype
    correct? So why is it OKAY or politically correct when it’s a black person who
    just assumes or profiles a white cop ( or any other white shooter for that
    matter ) if they’ve shot a black person? Aren’t the numbers of blacks being
    shot by cops way down? Aren’t the numbers of young black men killing other
    young black men WAAAAAY UP??? Where is the outrage about that? Can we assume it’s okay for blacks to kill other blacks and it’s no big deal? It’s kind of
    like how they can call each other the N-word, but whitey can’t.

    So here’s the solution. If there really is a conspiracy of white cops killing
    blacks ( and again, the statistics say they’re way down ), then why don’t white
    cops just HIRE a black man to kill another black man? Then the media won’t pay
    ANY attention to that.

    No sympathy for Michael Brown. Antisocial degenerate thugs like this love to be tough guys around women, teens, seniors, and people such the store clerk he pushed around. I’m sure the store clerk was unarmed. I’m sure others he has bullied were either outnumbered or unarmed. Good riddance Michael Brown you worthless chimp. I say you want to fix this problem… cut their welfare off. Make them do work for the state such as clean parks, clean graffiti, and be crossing guards for small children in their communities if they would like to still collect welfare. If they have children make sure they maintain a studious average and record attendance or cut them off. I’m sure there attitudes would change if they were required to be responsible citizens or starve.

    Give me the Facts, just the Facts! Officer Wilson confronted Brown and friend for walking down the middle of the road. As Wilson drove up and attempted to get out of his cruiser, Brown pushed the officer back in the car, punched him and lacerated his eye, causing a hemorrhage. Brown and friend started to walk away, and after 35 feet Wilson shouted ‘freeze’. Brown turned and not listening, rushed Wilson. Don’t forget Brown is some 300 lbs and stood 6’4″ – hard to stop! Wilson fired his weapon and Brown kept coming, so he fired more rounds and the man died. First mistake Brown made – hit and attacked a Law Enforcement Officer when told to follow with he law. Second mistake – not freezing when told to by a Law Enforcement Officer, but rushing at him. End of Story people – just The Facts!

    What I don’t understand is… WHY….. WHY would an officer kill someone for no reason?! What does he have to GAIN by it?…. The answer is NOTHING!! No officer wants to shot someone even if the perpetrator was armed to the teeth! It’s not because it “creates more paper work”. Every Officer involved in a shooting by law must be investigated…. HE KNOWS THIS… well before he even thinks of pulling his gun out. He also knows that even if he ends up using deadly force, he has to live with it for the rest of his life…. and nobody wants that whether it’s justified or not. This is why I myself could never be an officer of the law. As an imperfect human that is required to make snap judgments in intense situations as they arise, NO ONE is free of mistakes including police officers. With that said… who is left to do the job, a robot? I’m sorry but, if you attack an officer unarmed or not, common sense tells you…. you’re gonna get hurt, whether you’re tazed or shot. Foolishness will get you hurt or killed almost EVERY TIME! Don’t live the thug live, maybe you’ll get to keep it longer.

  • jacquesdaspy

    Michael Brown’s behavior was African and not American. Both are a choice although the choice is often influenced by the community. Perhaps he learned thuggery in high school? Did his high school offer a course or did he have to go to Chicago? It would be interesting to see his transcript.

    Perhaps his father was involved in his life, a situation that has been uncommon in the past fifty years. Was it a government program? I read that he was looking forward to a trade school education? Does the trade school have the courses necessary to pursue a successful career in crime. It seems that most black teenagers in that career are losers, or at least they have lost the opportunity to pursue additional opertunities while serving time.

    The WAPO reported that Mister Brown was ‘college bound’ and makes it sound like the police officer involved just singled him out for no reason. Luckily the internet filters the news now. Here’s some background on Mister Brown…….

    This is going to be another Travon case as most Libs and blacks are not going to like the outcome.
    The new Racial poster boy Michael R Brown has felonies pending in Court. Yes, that guy who was on his way to college was arrested and charged with Burglary, Armed criminal action, assault with the intent to do great bodily harm, and again armed criminal action all stemming from one incident. He was going to court in Sept. I thought he was supposed to go to college in Sept??
    You can look all this up yourself (https://www.courts.mo.gov/casenet ). Do your search in St. Louis County in 2014; you’ll find him.

    Whenever Al Sharpton, Jesse and Obama chime in, it winds up being another Tawana Brawley case. They destroyed Zimmerman and they will destroy this officer as well even though it most likely will be found he was justified…

    Does anyone remember Detective Melvin Santiago? He was a Jersey City police officer who was shot to death just a month ago, on July 13th. Santiago was white. His killer, Lawrence Campbell, was black. Does anyone recall Obama appearing before national television and calling for justice for Officer Santiago’s family? Does anyone recall Eric Holder rushing to Jersey City to see that justice was done?
    How about Officer Jeffrey Westerfield. He was a Gary, Indiana police officer who was shot to death last month on July 6th. Westerfield was white. His killer, Carl LeEllis Blount, Jr. was black. Where was Obama? Where was Holder?
    Or Officer Perry Renn? He was an Indianapolis, Indiana police officer who was shot to death just last month on July 5th, the day before Officer Westerfield was killed. Officer Renn was white. His killer, Major Davis, was black. I don’t recall any mention by Obama about the untimely death of Officer Renn. And, I doubt that Eric Holder rushed to Indianapolis to make sure justice was done. Or, maybe I just missed it.
    Vermillion Parish Deputy Sheriff Allen Bares was gunned down by two men just last June 23rd in Louisiana. Deputy Bares was white. His two killers, Quintlan Richard and Baylon Taylor, were black. Was Obama outraged? Did Eric Holder rush to Louisiana to make sure that the family of Deputy Bares found justice?
    Detective Charles Dinwiddie of the Killeen Police Department was murdered by Marvin Lewis Guy, a black male. Officer Dinwiddie was white. This happened on May 11th, just over two months ago. I don’t even recall seeing anything about that on the news. Certainly, the white citizens in Killeen didn’t take to the streets to loot and burn businesses. Again, I don’t recall any mention by Obama or Holder.
    Then, there is Officer Kevin Jordan of the Griffin, Georgia Police Department. He was gunned down just two months ago on May 31st. Officer Jordan was black. His killer, Michael Bowman, was white. This was a white man murdering a black police officer. Where was Jesse Jackson? Where was “The Reverend” Al Sharpton? Was there looting and burning on the streets of Griffin, Georgia? No. In fact, I don’t recall hearing about this one in the news, as well. Why? You can draw your own conclusions.
    Over the past 60 days, there have been five reported deaths of police officers by gunshot in the US. Of those, four were white officers who were murdered by black men. Blacks complain that white officers treat black men more aggressively on the street. You can draw your own conclusions on that one, as well.

      Det Santiago’s murderer was killed in the exchange of fire. A man has been arrested in your second example. And so forth.

      Apples and oranges. You can find a long list of examples of unarmed African-Americans killed by police officers for no good reason who do not get charged with any wrongdoing. It’s rare enough that its news when it DOES happen as in a story in Texas just recently.

    The way he man-handled the store clerk says ist all …. that was an assault right there in the camera and people still take up for him. It shows that he is physically violent which backs up the officers account of events.
    Sure, he was such an Angel and his Momma who has a different name from his Daddy is all over the news …… all the while he was living with Grandma ….
    guess neither parent had time for their son or wanted to deal with his foolishness

    “I have never in all my years seen something as offensive and insulting as a police chief releasing a tape of a young man trying to smear him before we even have his funeral.”
    ROFL … oh Al … you are such a kidder aren’t you. This is called evidence and it needs to be shown. I am so sorry that there actually IS evidence and that this does not sit well with you and exposes you for the hypocrite you are, for the pot stirred that you are …….

    Bottom line: The black community is going to be in conflict with the police for the forseeable future because blacks are over represented, usually vastly over represented in every single violent offender category in the FBI UCR. It’s been that way for decades and it’s not going to change anytime soon. When you are 13% of the population and committing over 50% of the robberies and about 50% of the murders year after year after year you are going to come into a lot of conflict with the police. Source for the above claims is the FBI UCR table 43 any year you want to pick.

  • Richard Blaine

    If Obama had a son, he would look like Michael Brown and rob stores of their Swisher Sweets…….

    Mike Brown received justice. One less problem but there are millions more of he same type. http://www.blogtalkradio.com/themightisrightnetwork

    Most normal people, when they see things get out of control decide to leave when they see police ordering them to go home. I think most of us were raised that way. Watching the protesters as the cameras rolled, dancing around, lewd gestures, wearing a shirt that said Brown was surrendering makes me wonder. Will Brown’s accomplice who said Brown was shot in the back, be charged with “inciting a riot” if it is proved he lied?

  • Fiona1933

    “Marijuana users” just listen to how you express yourself. Try and be a little more educated…you are presenting the smoking of dope as likely to cause violence. It is alcohol that does that. How often do you drink a glass of wine, or have some beers with your buddies? “Alcohol users are known to use glass containers to consume their drugs”. See how ridiculous you are? Dope makes people sleepy and peaceful. Plus, you are implying that his size and colour were somehow a crime. Even if he had knocked that store clerk to the ground, that is not a capital offence. Police officers should be able to stop people with the authority of their voices alone. British police officers, unarmed, chase known gun-toting criminals right into the heart of Moss Side. American police execute SWAT raids on people for smoking a little dope at home. They are cowards.
    This case isnt settled. You are ignoring the eye-witness reports entirely. And anyway, it doesnt really matter if this particular cop was innocent. There re so many other times they havent been. But of course, its very very important Darren Wilson gets due process (which it is)…not so important for Michael Brown.

  • Wicked Nice

    But he’s a goot’ boy.

  • fresser

    Your comment if legitmate, has a ring of truth to it. If so it is a shame you could not testify before the grand jury so you might tell jurors what you saw and heard about Mr. Brown.

    • Wiggz

      Multiple black eyewitnesses confirmed for the grand jury the officer’s story when it came to Michael Brown’s actions that night and his being shot in self-defense. That’s why they concluded there was not enough evidence to suggest a crime had even been committed.

  • Steve Giardini

    Its clear YOU ARE THE RACIST. Btw 19 isn’t a child , its an adult. Or in this case, an adult animal.

  • heartburnkid

    Stupid n1ggers. What do they do? Loot when they don’t get their way. Violent scumbags. They deserve every awful mistreatement in life.

  • Ariel Castro

    Another innocent black child is dead! When will this killing and blood-shed of black children stop at the hands of evil white people?

    • Liberty For All

      Obviously you are being sarcastic.

  • CounterPunch

    Lot of similarities between Muslims and Blacks in terms if criminal tendencies.

  • Rational_Db8

    ROFLMAO! You’re trying to relate ME to the race baiting idiot Sharpton? Obviously you haven’t bothered reading any of my posts. Sorry, but the video of police attacking reporters is about POLICE attacking reporters – and has NOTHING to do with the video of Mike Brown attacking the store clerk. Do try to stay on topic.

  • Shawn Ofthefamily Folkes

    Hahaha looking back now…you people ARE stupid!

  • Rational_Db8

    Of COURSE that’s utterly inexcusable – in fact it appears that Holder OUGHT to be investigating it as a hate crime. The Saint Louis Murder of Zemir Begic – Not Random At All… Moments Earlier: “F**k the white people, kill the white people.” [and this was not the first person they attacked with hammers]

    But considering the fact that Holder is a racist activist, that’ll probably never happen.

    None of which has ANYTHING to do with this case. Nice try at switching the subject, but no cookie for you.

  • Michael Stone

    “Some have suggested Brown was high on drugs at the time and that made him especially aggressive but a toxicology report on his body won’t be available for weeks.”

    All three autopsies state there was a high level of THC in Brown’s blood and urine.

  • Felix Tung

    Michael Brown is a thug. Parents and black community covered it up.

  • Miss Abby

    George Zimmerman sent a loud and clear message. Unfortunately, thugs are too illiterate to figure out what that message is.
