What we actually have here is a failure to communicate, no seriously in my opinion this is a situation where conspiracy breaks down we have so many angles here.. Are we to believe that al jezeera in its dislike for america set up a situation where they where targeted by american police! The outrage! No wait they are targeting all news stations this is an attack on freedom of press! The outrage! no they are targeting minoritys and there community peaceful protest! the outrage! what we really have here is a police force not trained properly to deal with these type of sensitive issues the lines of right and wrong are being infringed upon, we also have a cynical and pissed off american public ready to jump on any issue to show its outrage. This is a sad situation, hopefully its a means to an end.

Now, if this wasn't a cop this never would have made the news.... because it's East St. Louis. Anyone who has ever been there knows you don't get caught in East St. Louis. You don't stop at stop lights, and you don't stop if someone stands in front of your car.
If it was any other place I'd have more compassion, but for a place that has such a bad reputation???

I hadn't seen that before. So..that's basically what started this whole thing. (sigh) NOW Governor Nixon's decision to pull St Louis County police makes perfect sense.
I don't mean the shooting. That's the obvious thing which needs no more comment. I mean afterward. That's the vigil people have talked about being interrupted by police, but I hadn't seen it start to finish. Good God..what could they have expected to have happen?
They didn't just interrupt it..they drove OVER the focus of the neighborhoods mourning, and parked over top of it, to blast them with sirens, hold AR-15's at the ready, and literally "bring in the dogs". Jesus.... America, where did you go??

John Lewis Calls On Obama To Declare Martial Law In Ferguson,
It just blows my mind that people are even remotely alright with a mounted machine gun being pointed at citizens conducting a peaceful protest.
