Sad thing is this black community will get NO support or sympathy from the surrounding white communities.

Witness statements don't count?

Because its primary black automatically makes it a ghetto, just like the peaceful protesters were automatically rioter and looters. Just like automatically believing the cop was innocent or guilty, but really can anyone support the actions of the police thus far?
They sure got in a few days of war games against the people.

Watching the lower video without commentary, if that is indeed Brown (uncertain as Cardinal hat isn't on the deceased and shoes seem different though it does look like Dorian Johnson in the convenience store with the individual there), then what he would have been charged with is not shoplifting but Robbery in the 2nd degree.
Robbery is the use of force and/or intimidation. Shoving the small guy and taking a few steps towards him would fall under use of force and intimidation. There is no weapon being used so it would not be robbery in the first degree; ergo, second degree.
Robbery in the 2nd degree would be a Class B Felony, whose sentencing would be 5-15 years in prison in the state of Missouri.
Not capital punishment. Even if it is Brown, he was still unarmed and was shot 6 times while running away based on distance between the police car and the deceased's body. Still would be a case of inappropriate use of deadly force by a police officer.
The neighborhood is out of control with break ins, robbery, drug sales, and killings. Do not live here unless u are already near death and have no voice to complaine to BBB!

You had seen the video where..apparently prior to the rioting...the St Louis County PD came roaring up Canfield Ct, right OVER the shooting scene the whole neighborhood was outside mourning with a vigil, to jump out armed for war and deafening people with sirens..before they brought dogs out.
This...kinda pissed people off. I'll be straight out in saying, if a neighbor kid was killed in the street like this, and in our moment of mourning, the people who did it came roaring BACK in like it was D-Day? I can't say how peaceful I'd remain either.
I never got a confirmation on timeline for sequence of when that vigil was run over and terrorized into being ended....but the cops were out, big as life and without any armor at that moment ..so I would say it's a safe guess, they hadn't encountered the riot they may have well STARTED by their own cold blooded actions.
