Showing their sympathy for a young man being killed!

More heartbroken sympathy!

I haven't followed the story closely enough to know what I think about the actual death of the young man and who was in the right or the wrong.

But I do know that this type of nonsense has NOTHING to do with his death. It is simply an excuse by lawless thugs to cause mayhem and destruction and to use any excuse to steal. It is an illustration of a breakdown in society and morality. It is the logical result of our out of control liberal influence on society.

It is time to call this what it is - "WRONG"!

Let's see if the progressive libs around here have the decency and honesty to do just that.

Or will they predictably use this as a typical Obama diversion form his disastrous presidency just before the election to rile people up and to divide people and pit one American against another American for political advantage int he election.

Trayvon Martin family attorney to represent slain Missouri teen

Vandalism, looting after vigil for Missouri man

For all I know, there may be reason to be upset with the police - OR with this young man.

I also know that it is NO excuse for riots and stealing.

Or for Obama to use for political points to deflect attention from his gross negligence and incompetence in office.

mnrick - can they still say what gender the perp is - after all wont some to the folks get all bent out of shape about that too.

When I went to the U way back when in 63-65 and 70-72 us folks from the St Paul Campus thought them nuts from over the river were crazy - it looks like it has only gotten worse.

Flyboy, it is all liberalism gone mad.

Here in Minneapolis our State University recently announced that it will no longer include racial descriptions in campus crime alerts.

Nearly every student has a Email capable phone and a few years ago the U of M created this Email alert system to let students know of dangers on campus, including reports of rapes, assaults, kidnappings and other violent crimes being committed against students on Campus.

Last year there was some controversy after some students and staff at the U of M cried that the inclusion of racial descriptions of violent criminals targeting students somehow was degrading and threatening to students of color, making them feel uncomfortable.

So, now there is a new policy that race will not be included in Campus crime alerts. This is pure liberal madness, a ridiculous policy just to appease a few cry baby liberals who obviously don't care about the safety of students at our largest University in the State.

I am a white male and if a white male is out there kidnapping and assaulting college students I would have absolutely no problem with the University releasing that information to everyone on Campus.

Do black lives matter - to who?

>>>Graduate students enrolled in University of California, Berkeley School of Social Welfare organized a teach-in on campus because they are angry that a white professor brought up black-on-black crime in discussions related to the Black Lives Matter movement.

Segal made his comments earlier this month during a Black Lives Matter group discussion and then the next day in a class on mental health and social policy class.

In the class, he read lyrics from a rap song. The lyrics of the unidentified song opine that activists in the Black Lives Matter movement need to stop blaming police for everything.

The 26 mainly first-year graduate students in the course were distressed and alarmed that Segal had read these particular lyrics.

“My first reaction was straight-up shock,” first-year grad student Emily Myer told The Daily Californian.

“That was followed by an acute awareness of rising anxiety and a desperate need for him to stop,” the enraged student added.<<<

Now correct me if I'm in error here. Literally thousands (on the order of 5,000 +) black kids get killed by other black kids. Yet white cops kill what - less than a hundred black kids. Now we go bonkers if someone has the temerity to mention that more than 5,000 might be either more important or at least mentioning than a hundred. Sure does make you go all HUMMMMMMY and wonder what the real concern is thousands of dead kids or a hundred or so and lots of political noise.

What is this, the 85th time that race hustler Sharpton has been in the White House? Or more?

"Al Sharpton met with the president of the United States yesterday."

Weasle - I saw an article on that story earlier. But I couldnt pass on the chance to tease you a tad now could I.

But back to the subject - police brutality and so on and so forth....
.
.
>>> “They took my child away from me… took my child away from me in handcuffs, shot him in handcuffs… I just want to see dis officer that killed my son in handcuffs. I want him to suffer like my child suffered.”

Those were the words of Penny Nelson last September as she, her family, and “community activists” attempted to turn Savannah, Georgia, into the next Ferguson, Missouri. Nelson’s violent serial felon son Charles Smith had just been shot as he attempted to escape from police.

Did she mention that he was armed when shot?

Of course not.

A police officer who fatally shot a handcuffed man won’t face criminal charges after a grand jury concluded Wednesday that the suspect was armed with a handgun police missed while patting him down.

The grand jury heard from 45 witnesses and reviewed a Georgia Bureau of Investigation report of more than 2,000 pages in the shooting of 29-year-old Charles Smith last fall, Chatham County District Attorney Meg Heap said.

“I believe the decision the grand jury made should lay this to rest,” Heap told reporters at a courthouse news conference.

Savannah-Chatham County police officer David Jannot fatally shot Smith last Sept. 18 shortly after he had been handcuffed and placed in the back of the officer’s patrol car. Police said that Smith’s hands were cuffed behind his back but that he managed to move them to the front of his body. Smith then kicked out a car window and tried to escape. He was able to get out of the car.

The grand jury’s four-page report said the officer shot Smith five times after the suspect fled the car with a gun in his hand. Jannot testified Smith “pointed the weapon as if to fire it,” the report said, and Smith fell dead with the gun several inches from his hands. Lab tests confirmed Smith’s DNA in skin cells were found on the gun’s grip and at the base of its ammunition clip.<<<

Good shoot do you think------- or maybe you think the cop should have sat down and had a cuppa coffee with the guy and discussed his problems.....

SE, "The Justice Department announced today it has insufficient evidence to charge George Zimmerman with federal civil right violations for the Trayvon Martin shooting."

The announcement that the Feds were going to pursue civil rights charges was made with great fanfare.

The announcement that there was "insufficient evidence" was pretty quiet and without much fanfare.

Anyone see a pattern here?

You didn't have to "dig as far into a movie to find a line of a song" as you so falsely and cynically claim. You couldn't miss it if you were awake.

They SANG the LIE about 'marching through Ferguson with their hands up'.

Then in their acceptance speech, John Legend likened requiring voters today to prove they were eligible to vote was worse than anything that happened back then.

How bigoted.

How racist.

How dishonest.

But, Weasle, you just eat up all the lies and love them.

It forever changed my mind about John Legend. I used to like him.

I am so disappointed in him.

But I guess that is what you get when the virus of liberalism is allowed to spread unchecked.

What this comes down to is the DOJ could not find just cause to file charges against Officer Wilson so they need something to appease Obama and Holder's base. They have to fine a bone to throw at the looters and rioters so they come up with a charge of covert racism.

The problem is the cops can do no right crowd will not take the bone they want blood, Wilson's blood and nothing else will satisfy them. I say there is better than a 50/50 chance of more riots after they find out that Wilson will not face any kind of charges. The only saving grace is that we are expecting highs in the teens and lows in the low single digits to sub zero for the next few day and again early next week.

One thing we do know is that our cowardly governor, the one that I voted for twice, will not be sending in the National Guard. He will let Ferguson burn again as long as no one gets hurt, he's ok with that.

The ever "evil" NObama is at it again.

Now he is threatening to sue the Ferguson Police Department - no PROMISING - for overt racism and bias.

You just cannot make up the anti-American hatred of this Administration.

"The Justice Department is preparing to bring a lawsuit against Ferguson, Missouri, police over a pattern of racially discriminatory tactics used by officers, if the department does not agree to make changes, sources tell CNN's Evan Perez.

The shooting death of Michael Brown at the hands of Officer Darren Wilson thrust Ferguson into the center of a nationwide debate over police tactics and race relations. The Justice Department in the coming weeks is expected to announce it won't charge Wilson in the shooting, but it is also expected to outline findings that allege a pattern of discriminatory tactics used by Ferguson police."

In the past I have admitted that I voted for Gov Nixon twice. I now regret both of those votes. I can understand incompetence I can even accept a bad decision. What I can't stand is cowardice. Nixon admits that he let Ferguson burn because he was afraid that sending the National Guard in would have led to fatalities. He used Kent State as his example. The loss of life or lack of it is not the only gauge of success. As Governor he has a responsibility to uphold the law and protect the property of the citizens. He had plenty of warning of the potential for violence and he had plenty of time to assume a posture of strength. Instead he ordered the Guard to stand back and watch. Because of his cowardice he allowed anarchy and left North County to the rioters and arsonists.

Now I wouldn't even vote for Nixon to take on the job of dog catcher.

ZERO!

Maybe MTMarty IS correct when he says that there is "corruption" in the Ferguson Police Department - as well as the Obama Administration, the Eric "Lawless Lawman" Holder INJustice Department, the Missouri State Police, etc etc

It is time for them to go in and start filling up the jails with these liberal thugs and violent progressive CRIMINALS who descended on the good people of Ferguson.

Our legal system no protects the criminal more than it does the victim or the police. The family of the criminals see the death of a beloved thug as a shot at a payday. I foresee the day when police officers nationwide call for a work stoppage. If that happens what can the cop haters do, fire them all?

No Flyboy, they do not care about anything. The best way to deal with these guys is to just kill them. They serve no useful purpose to society, they never will and I hope they start running into armed victims.

This morning a St. Louis Park Officer went to check on a man sleeping in a car in the lot of a business. Fairly innocuous call, however this time the sleeper shot at the Officer ( he was not hit) and managed to escape the scene. What has followed has been a day of intense manhunts around the west metro.

Just a few days ago a shoplifter ran a Officer down in a grocery store parking lot and now this.

Late last night a jury here returned a guilty verdict against a local man who shot and killed a Officer during a routine traffic stop last year.

Today it was announced that another Officer in the area is now being sued for shooting a suspect following a high speed chase involving a stolen car. The Officer was cleared by a Grand Jury but is now being sued by the criminal's family.

Our Officers and society in general are under attack by criminals on a daily basis.

mnrick - do you really think the thugs who attack a wedding party really care what effect their actions have on business. The likelihood is most of them dont have a job anyway and their "business" is to sponge off the gubbiment.

Saturday evening a Minneapolis Police Officer was run over by a shoplifter, he survived. Reports say the vehicle "drove directly at the officer, striking him". Shots were fired but the suspect got away and it is unknown if he was hit.

Minneapolis Officer ran down by shoplifter

This is the risk Officers face every day. Even a minor call like a shoplifting can be deadly for them.

Johnny, that is unfortunate. We have our annual events here, parades, 4th of July celebrations and so on. People look forward to them, and it is a money maker for the vendors and so on. Everyone loses.

There was recently a mob style attack (blacks running amok) on a wedding party at a location in downtown St. Paul and some of the people interviewed said they would never go to anything in downtown St. Paul again. People trying to run businesses in the area suffer from this.

Now back to the effects of the riots on the greater St. Louis area. So far the Thanksgiving Day parade was canceled; several local concerts at local venues were also canceled. These were during the height of the rioting. The river front concerts scheduled on Memorial Day and Labor Day have also been canceled for 2015. The concerts for 2015 were not canceled by the city or the promoters but by the big name acts not coming. There have also been conventions not booking or relocating to other cities.

People now connect St. Louis with the rioting not just Ferguson.

I have posted videos of police officer getting shot during normal traffic stops in an attempt to show why police officers are so jumpy. I have seen people here claim that the police did something wrong when they get shot, i.e. not waiting for backup, getting to close to the suspect etc. There are some who try to blame the officer every time one gets shot or uses deadly force.

In this case there were three officers and a K-9. Two of the officers and the dog were standing back. One officer approached the car. The audio is not to good but the car door opens and the suspect starts to exit and starts shooting.

This is not the suspects first violent run in with the police. Part of the problem here is with the list of criminal offences this guy should not have been on the street in the first place. He got 40 years. Any one want to make a bet on how much time he actually does?

"I'm not afraid of cops, because (with the exception of speed limits) I don't break the law."

Unauthorized use of lethal force is by far the least prevalent transgression. In many cases with corrupt (or simply ignorant) officers, you don't need to actually be breaking a law for them to make a negative impact on your life, hence the seriousness of the danger...

I agree Johnny, people are getting ridiculous.

The Denver case is probably open and shut. Suspect in a stolen car trying to run down a police officer after they repeatedly ordered her to get out of the car.

Idiotic actions like that will get you shot anywhere, regardless of race. It just happened to some guy here last month, police went on a domestic threats call, the guy was outside his girlfriends building and when Police showed up he tried to run them down, in the process of it he smashed into several other cars in the parking lot and he had a gun in his car. They shot him and there was briefly a "call for justice" until police put the facts out there.

If you don't want to get shot then don't try to run the police over, don't point guns at them, don't assault them. It is best just to act like a decent human being and not come into contact with them at all, it works for me and most other Americans.
