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.

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.

Now for some reality on the side effects of the "peaceful protesters" in Ferguson.

As I have said in the past Ferguson and Florissant are so closely connected the area is referred to as Ferguson/Florissant. I have also said it they are part of North County, an area avoided by those of us from the south side of the county. This area has been hemorrhaging industry and retail centers. The Sears/Kmart Company has announced that they will be closing 77 stores nationwide. Only one in the state of Missouri is on the list. It's the store in Florissant, about five miles give or take from the unrest. I cant say that the news of riots and near daily road closures in the area were directly responsible but I can tell you that if you I have friends who live where they have a choice to go north or south to shop. They are going south. Its not because they are afraid of the cops. They don't want the hustles of dealing with blocked road that the cops are allowing be blocked and after dark there is a concern about safety.

The new probably did not influence the decision to close the store but lost revenue probably did. The end result will be lost tax income for the area and lost jobs. The jobs will not be replaced and the tax revenue will simply move to other parts of the county or into St. Charles County.

>>"But watch the liberal race whores still try to stir up trouble and racial violence."

Weaslespit Because this kind of vitriol promotes level-headed discussion from both sides...<<

Who has been attacking people for just because of the color of their skin? Who has been shouting most of the racial slurs? Who has been breaking the law? Who has been committing the acts of violence? Who has been shouting if they don't get what they want there will be no peace? Who threatened to take the violence to the "white neighborhoods"? Are whites supposed to accept the racial slurs because we are white? Are whites supposed ignore the attacks on whites because we are white? Are we expected to pretend these threats don't exist? Are we supposed to ignore the constant violations of the law and acts of violence being ignored by law enforcement because of a fear of escalation?

We are finding out that the case is not as simple as the protesters have tried to make it out to be. Unfortunately they don't care. If you look at the crime stats for that part of town, it's clear that lawlessness and violence it a way of life in part of the culture in that part of town. The protesters have been given free rain to attack whites. At some point this is going to reach a tipping point where someone is going to be killed by a mob of protesters because the cops are afraid to do their job and all hell is going to break lose.

The point is these people don't want justice. They want the right to do what they want and the shooting of Brown is just an excuse,

Should I continue to post video of the "peaceful protests" in action?

well spit, you asked: "ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm how many of the 'so-called witnesses for brown' have been charged with telling lies to police?

What, exactly, is your point and to what point are you responding to?"

-
spit here's 1 of several links on this subject -Autopsy Results Prove Witnesses Lied in Michael Brown Shooting-here's a 2nd link = Star Witness In Michael Brown Shooting Charged With Theft, Filing False Police Report

-here's a 3rd link = Black Witnesses Back Up Officer Darren Wilson’s Account Of Michael Brown Shooting
-
here's a 4th = Confirmed: Mike Brown Shooting Witness Dorian Johnson Is A Dirty LIAR!
-

and a 5th = Mid-Missouri man describes repeated lies by witness in Michael Brown Shooting Case-
and a 6th = Breaking: Star witness in Michael Brown shooting just lost A LOT of credibility -and a 7th link = Revealed: Star witness in Michael Brown shooting has arrest warrant for theft and was busted for lying to cops

-and just 1 more link among many online = On top of the theft warrant, Johnson was charged and later pleaded guilty to filing a false police report. After deciding not to show up to face the theft charge, however, a failure to appear citation was also issued against him by Jefferson City authorities.

-spit, I hope these are enuff for you, if not, I just googled it and it brought up about 4,589,954 results (0.30 seconds)

The race baiters and thug loving part of the community are at it again over the sandwich shooter. The family found a pathologist who said at least some of the bullets entered the not so little thug from the back. Now they want justice and are blocking streets. Here are some videos of the so called peaceful protests at Grand and Shaw.

Video 1 Video 2

You can see the police did nothing to help this kid. The press was there and video taped the whole thing but did not show it and reported the protest as peaceful.

The liberal race mongers have decried the secrecy of the grand jury in Ferguson, as if it is some conspiracy against blacks.

Well, it turns out that THIS grand jury may indeed have been conducted differently than most other grand juries!

It MUST be a conspiracy!

ROTFL

Nope.

Quite the opposite.

Most grand juries are conducted where the prosecutors pick what evidence they will present. There is no opposing point of view given. The people on the grand jury hear only what the prosecutors want them to hear about what they are charging.

Ferguson IS different.

The grand jury got to look at ALL the evidence, not just the evidence that the prosecutor selected and that he wanted them to see.

ALL of the evidence.

Inconvenient facts in Ferguson

"Unlike typical grand jury probes, in which prosecutors carefully select the evidence, St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch said he is letting the panel sort through all the evidence and decide on its own what, if any, criminal charges to bring."

But watch the liberal race whores still try to stir up trouble and racial violence.

"In the liberal mind after the cop was assaulted he should not have done anything to apprehend the suspect and when Brown came after Wilson again he should have let Brown assault him again.

Do I have that correct?"

Not really, since liberals have their own version of events cobbled together from the tiny pieces of information actually known filled-in with assumptions, just like conservatives.

"And it is because of race baiters that make them believe and act like they do toward police."

To some extent, yes. That is certainly one variable. The other is actual events where police officers have abused their authority...

"And as I said...it is dumb to look for a white guy when the suspect has been described as being black."

And as I indicated to mini, that is correct. The caveat here is that not 'all' black males should be stopped, detained and/or questioned as there are other identifiers that should also be used to correctly profile potential suspects... Which is why 'stop and frisk' was ridiculous.

Read-up on the corruptive influence the KKK had on police forces and get back to me...

It has 'always' been a problem as long as humans have been cops.

That being said, I would say that it (police abusing authority) is better now than what has been seen historically, most likely as technology to monitor them has evolved (dash cams, cell phone video, etc). It is harder to get away with.

"Weasle so you're still saying that one confirmed case of a bad police dept out of 5876 police depts nationwide is significant?"

You are again missing the point. Police abusing their authority doesn't have to be widespread within a department to be a problem, as it was found to be in New Orleans. It only takes one bad cop on a force to give a bad name to their department with the locals.

That works out to a whopping 0.017 percent. That figure is so small that it is not statistically significant.

Weasel "I believe that they saw a kid who was racially profiled and then gunned down through abuse of authority. Whether the facts prove this or not, that is a different matter."

And it is because of race baiters that make them believe and act like they do toward police. Their first instincts is to "believe" what they were told to "believe" and now many have taken to the streets in what appears to be a justified shooting by a police officer who had just been assaulted and was coming back to beat him some more.

So let us look at this:

Cop was assaulted by Brown for asking him to get out of the street. Cop gets out of vehicle to arrest him so Brown comes toward him again in an aggressive manner and so the cop shoots him not wanting to get assaulted again. In the liberal mind after the cop was assaulted he should not have done anything to apprehend the suspect and when Brown came after Wilson again he should have let Brown assault him again.

Do I have that correct?

Weaslespit: "It identified 15 departments under investigation nationwide by the Feds alone."

We know that part already. I acknowledged it in the initial posts after you provided the link. The article said the Holder Justice Dept is "asking questions". You said "the problem is wide-spread".

Weaslespit: "You really believe that the problem is not widespread?"

Answering a question with a question is not answering the question. You stated a fact. Your link didn't provide evidence for your claim. It described one department with that problem. I'm just asking if you would like to back up your claim.

Weaselspit: "I would challenge that this issue has 'always' been an issue nationwide that ebbs and flows in many police forces..."

An argumentum ad ignorantiam is speculation. It is not a substitute for statistics or evidence.

Weaselspit: "I don't think that simple racial profiling is enough to warrant 'any' investigation into a police deparment. The use of profiling to fit the description of said suspect(s) given to the police is typically the baseline for any investigation."

That's all fine and dandy. But of course none of that addresses the question. I just thought you would like to back up your categorical claim.

Nobody likes to be racially profiled by the police, even if it is done without racism as its base. But to compound this through abuse of power from the police, this is what becomes intolerable and why, IMO, the residents of Ferguson initially reacted as they did (and why many others have flocked to their 'cause').

I believe that they saw a kid who was racially profiled and then gunned down through abuse of authority. Whether the facts prove this or not, that is a different matter.

What else do I need to explain to help?

ministorage, "I'll let you figure out for yourself how his "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree" comment might fit,"

Liberals have trouble seeing dots that are connected ... even AFTER someone has connected the dots FOR them!

"What does this (very personal) post have to do with Ferguson?"

I didn't divulge anything personal; he already made that very public.

I'll let you figure out how his "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree" comment might fit, "Michael Browns Mother is under investigation for her part in a Violent Assault and Robbery upon her own Relatives just a few days ago."

"Perhaps there's someone here well versed in the law who can comment about whether the selective release of information is appropriate."

It is NOT appropriate. However, in the age of the internet and cable news, it has become the norm. Justice has become a PR game cleverly played by both sides.

"Only justifies it in the minds of the usual liberal violent racists!"

Not all of the protesters are violent, and certainly not all of them are racist.

But, I know reality means little to you.

Weaslespit, "Sure, that is what 'everyone' wants to believe so that it justifies their protesting..."

"In the immortal words of our very own Mike Crowe for independent Senator from Kentucky, "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree."

That was in reference to then-possible (and now current) KY Democrat Senatorial candidate Allison Lundergan-Grimes - after Mr. Crowe had described Ms. Grimes' father as a dirty-dealing, dishonest politician. (At the time, Mr. Crowe was supporting Tennessee resident Ashley Judd to challenge Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell.)

I know, I know. It's very bizarre . Anyway, potential Independent candidate Mr. Crowe decided not to run -- because of past legal issues with the law -- and ironically is now he is a supporter of and campaigner for Ms. Lundergan-Grimes - the apple that does not fall far from the tree."

What does this (very personal) post have to do with Ferguson?

"Are their racist cops...yes, both black and white but to claim that the violence from this shooting is from racial profiling is the biggest strawman ever."

That is not what I said... nor is racial profiling on its own 'racist'. This is what I said;

"Look at what I said. I said those who were victims of police abuse 'after' having been racially profiled. Racial profiling, on its own, is understandable - to a point."

"One person, who probably was not even there, said Brown had his hands up surrendering and that is what everyone now believes."

Sure, that is what 'everyone' wants to believe so that it justifies their protesting...

nstrdnvstr, "And the Justice Department has a lot of experience handling cases in a "selective" and "inappropriate" manner."

The Obama/Holder Injustice Department has set a new low standard for selective and inappropriate.

Also known as SLEAZY.

Remember that on November 4th.

"U.S. Justice Department officials on Thursday criticized local authorities' investigation of the shooting death of an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri, saying the case had been handled in a "selective" and "inappropriate" manner."

And the Justice Department has a lot of experience handling cases in a "selective" and "inappropriate" manner.

theTower: "It must really suck to have so much hate and nowhere to direct it"

Not to worry. The Sadducees and the Pharisees found places to direct their hatred. He'll find an outlet.
