moral: follow the law or face the sometimes seriously fatal consequences. capiche?


Nope, I 100% disagree. See what you are implying? Negates the need for a club, tazer
and mace. Further more the cops are trained not to fire on an unarmed man. Once
the cop had the drop on Brown it should've ended. A whole different thought has to
happen for the decision to fire any way. The cop made a conscious decision to kill
an unarmed kid. A trained officer? Maybe his mace can was empty?



randy do you have any children or nephews and nieces?

i bet you teach them to follow laws right??

when someone is not following the law there can be up to fatal consequences.

it is a good thing to introduce the possibility of serious injury and death into the path of career criminals.

yes i am aware this robber and assaulter was an angel.

Ma'am, forcing a curfew to control a few rioters and looters is the same thing as creating draconian gun laws to prevent a few idiots who would cause harm.

There should never be a justification to curb rights.


the first amendment only protects the right to peacefully assemble.

the second does not protect the right to use a gun to murder or fire on police officers.

curfew is good.


"Curfew is good" unless you want to peacefully assemble.


and they do their deeds under the cover of darkness.

the curfew begins at dark and lasts till 5am beezer.

what responsible trustworthy law abiding person is going to be peacefully demonstrating at 2 am.

use some common sense.


I still don't see how this justifies collective punishment. This is a page right out of Palistine. Someone flashes a gun (allegedly) and you shell a crowd with over 30 canisters of tear gas? I find it remarkable that eye witness accounts put more journalists there than protesters and yet they needed 5 armored tanks.....right.

Interesting to note that when the other side had weapons like the militias backing Clive Bundy a few months back you didn't see this heavy handed behavior. If this shows anything its the defenseless get victimized.

You're opinions are very clear.

I am all for peaceful assembly.

Could you point out where it says that "peaceful assembly" should only be between the hours of noon to five?

I guess I missed that also.

Thanks in advance.

This thread is about the curfew there and their right to assemble and at this point the situation has evolved a little beyond a kid killed by a cop.

and you are telling me this from the united kingdom?


Yes, the United Kingdom, where we have the Police Complaints Commission, where every time a police officer fires a gun there is a full investigation into the circumstances, where police officers are held directly responsible for every bullet they have, and where firing a weapon is the LAST RESORT and only used when there is a direct threat to life.

In contrast, American cops seem to believe that firing their weapon at someone and ending their life is as easy as pulling someone over for speeding. It's their first response to absolutely anything. Shoot first, aim to kill, ask questions later.

This is not policing by consent, it's an authoritarian armed militia being given the right to execute people and make up an excuse after.

Good lord, we've taken leave of our senses? Does "two-sides to every story" ring any bells? Anywhere?

So, it's okay to talk about this, as long as the victim and blacks are portrayed as nothing less than angelic.

It's okay to talk about the police as long as they are presented as devils.

Shooting this young man was wrong. Tearing up this town, getting "free-stuff", from businesses that had to purchase it, is wrong.

Some where in the middle lies the truth.


Exactly, I am as anti big government as the rest of you, are , "SOMETIMES" lol

Because sometimes certain ATS members love big government infringement on rights depending on the situation, lol

But, as terrible as it is that this man had to lose his life for cigars, it is also terrible that the store owners are innocent victims of criminals that could and should protest, PEACEFULLY.

you know nothing about how police operate in america, and would suggest you read up on how many police officers stop how many citizens compared to the number of police shootings.

If I want to exercise my rights to assemble freely at 2am, then by god I should be able to!

Freedom doesn't have a time limit.


they were not being peaceable they were shooting at police,
throwing fire bombs, arson, stealing looting and theft.

Are you saying that just because someone could do something wrong that the people shouldn't be allowed to do it without a time frame and permission?

look at that.
Reads like MSM/politican spin.
like a borderline strawman. the curfew wouldn't be needed if police had actually stopped looters


And if they had stopped the looters?

The same people would be complaining.

Why do you think they didn't stop the looting?

The ability to assemble "peacefully" is now a privilege granted by the state.

It is not a right.

If it were a right, then you would be able to freely "peacefully assemble" any damned time you wanted to.

Let me add this

Do you find it appropriate for the news media to show where this cop lives?

What about his family and their safety?

Nice red herring.
you seem to think that it's alright for the government to tell these people when they can peaceably assemble.
I asked that question to get clarification on my part.
