    Ferguson is like the Birmingham of the early 1960s. These racist cops are so used to being bullies that they don't even clean up their act when the whole world is watching.

    @Allex_Spires Many Millennials are planning to do just that. Ferguson won't change its ways voluntarily. The bad attitude and the corruption are endemic. This is a situation where a complete regime change is appropriate.

    Let's just hope that leads to their undoing just as it did for the "Bull" Conner's, George Wallace's, and Jim Clark's of the South who performed for the cameras and thus brought the wrath of the world down on their evil acts against blacks.

    Sorry, dashcams and body cams are apparently to expensive. They must have wasted it all on the armored personnel carrier and the machine guns. Them dam cameras cost dozens of dollars after all.
    I just can't help but feel a bit upset every time I read someone on here who apparently sides with the police on this story who were a few weeks ago complaining about the militarization of the police in this country just a month ago.

    @frigginhell They got the military surplus free from the Obama administration under the 1033 program. I am glad you foolishly brought it up so I could inform you.
    ----------
    Section 1033 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 1997 authorizes the Department of Defense to transfer excess military property to state and local law enforcement agencies. The eligible agencies in law enforcement activities are government agencies whose primary function is the enforcement of applicable federal, state and local laws, and whose compensated law enforcement officers have powers of arrest and apprehension. Preference is given to counter-drug and counter-terrorism activities.

    Types of Property:

    ##Body armor, night vision equipment, APC's, aircraft, first aid supplies, weapons, surveillance equipment, Kevlar helmets, gas masks and filters, vehicles, etc.

    Now who was President in 1997? Someone help me out.

    Okay let me get this straight...there were multiple witnesses but no one had a cell phone picture but then there's the one here that was "witnesses and recorded" but it shows a double yellow line in the middle of the road with scattered rose pettles and some guys legs, and the photo shooters shadow...and...this is the proof?

    If there had been a video of this then where's the link because that would settle it for me and I would find it a little disgusting...if not then this is just hearsay.

    I am so over this town. It's hard to say what really happened. The only people I feel sorry for these days are the shop owners.

    Ferguson as a national news story ran it's course about 2 weeks ago but the media just can't seem to get enough of it so they exaggerate trivial events in order to keep the fire going.

    When I see proof of it, then I'll condemn the police, but I doubt it happened. Not to mention you don't fill the middle of a road or you should get a ticket for littering.

    A marine beaten to near death by a gang of black thugs , park ranger severely beaten by a gang of black thugs and a black cop shoots a white thug in Salt Lake and this is all Mary Noble can find to write about. Just more of her biased BS

    Because the story with the "thugs" is comparable to the stories where the police kill unarmed citizens? Because why would we ever hold officers sworn to protect and serve to a higher standard than I don't know....common criminals? Also why not talk about Police shooting UNARMED CITIZENS rather than Unarmed Black or White citizens. As far as I'm concerned race is irrelevant when the police are abusing their powers. Even though race sometimes plays a role, and that should be talked about when it happens....We're all Americans.

    @Ironicguy

    Fists can be a weapon - we don't know the facts, but IF the police side to the story is correct, Michael Brown certainly placed the officer in viable fear for his life. If that's not what happened (though unlikely), and Brown somehow actually happens to be the "gentle giant" he's portrayed as, Officer Wilson should be imprisoned.

    What about the man shot in Utah? He was unarmed, white, shot by a non-white cop. Seems the cop was in the wrong. The cop should be punished.

    It shouldn't be the selective reporting. Why is it always "Unarmed African-American teen shot by white police officer"? Why is that important? It's unlikely racism was a factor, and to imply so is bad reporting.

    @BobSmith "Also why not talk about Police shooting UNARMED CITIZENS rather than Unarmed Black or White citizens.

    I know both cops murdered unarmed citizens, but as I've said.... I think race is irrelevant because we're all Americans. It could have motivated the cop, but we shouldn't assume that with our headlines. Because the evidence is non-existent for the time being.

    But see you just showed bias whether you know it or not. When you talked about the young black man in Ferguson you said "Fists can be a weapon - we don't know the facts", but when talking about the young white man in Utah you said "He was unarmed, white, shot by a non-white cop. Seems the cop was in the wrong. The cop should be punished."

    Because apparently the black victim is probably violent, and the white cop's story is probably true. But the white victim was of course innocent and the black cop should be punished. Even though with both cases, there is little information.... and the most we can do is speculate.

    Media overdrive, news flash, dogs pretty much pee where they want to pee. By the way we are talking about a black man who committed a strong armed robbery shortly before he was killed assaulting a police officer.

    Who do u think you're fooling? I have a dog, and If my dog tries to pee on a MEMORIAL, i yank his ass off it. i do not then run over the spot.

    The memorial is the middle of the street, for God's sake. Usually memorials are put on the side of the road.

    Is there video of the cops running over this and dogs peeing on it?

    Yep, and just remember, there were 'eye-witness' reports that Saint Cigarillo was shot in the back. Autopsy shot that 'eye witness' testimony out of the water. Me thinks that since the fervor and angst is beginning to wane, certain Jessie Jackson wanna-be's are trying to restoke the fires for their own benefit.

    @Cal No, they are not. The first "eye witness" was the accomplice to the felony and he very clearly stated that they were walking down the street when the officer pulled up beside them and "pulled" (from a seated position in a car) his co-conspirator, the 6-4, 300 lbs Brown over to his window. Then Brown ran and the officer stepped out of the car and shot Brown in the back.

    @StanB
    And all indications are that account is true. Brown was shot (hitting his hand) as he tried to run away. He then stopped and turned with his hands raised and was shot again repeatedly, with the final two shots hitting him in the head as he fell.

    .......a makeshift memorial sprang up in the middle of the street......

    How about NOT putting the stuff IN the street to be run over? Memorial or not, clear the road.

    @Curmudgeon I believe the state took control of the crowd control issues, but they did not lay the Ferguson police off entirely.

    I wish there were better identification of which cop(s) were involved in this.

    It would seem that if it was Ferguson PD cops. that the entire dept is suffering from a serious lack of leadership, training, and morale.
