Why was Michael Brown's mother in the crowd last night? Shouldn't she have stayed home for her own protection? Her cries, when the verdict was announced, only made the protestors angry.

I don't know, this just seems odd to me. She was begging for protestors to keep it peaceful, yet she was out on the streets herself.

Not blaming her or anything; I just found it a little baffling.

What she said was very racist.
I hope she resigns because of this hate-related remark.

And she talks about war. How can someone stop racism by spreading hate and violence?


Dr. King would be ashamed about the actions and words of the people who claim to follow him.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

Regardless of what brown did, he was shot in the back running away.

That is incorrect.

Brown was shot in the hand when he reached into the police car to assault the officer and try to take his gun. Brown then briefly ran away and the officer gave chase. Brown turned around and then ran back towards the officer 'football player style with his head down'. The officer feared for his life and shot brown. The 'kill shot' was either the one in the forehead or the one that went in through the top of the head.

Brown was over six feet tall and over 250 pounds. He was a full grown man and extremely angry and threatening. The evidence all supports the police version of events. There is forensic evidence as well as an audio recording of the gunshots. Most of the supposed 'eyewitness' testimony was discredited and proven to be lies. The few eyewitness testimonies that turned out to be credible matched the forensics and they stated that Brown ran towards the cop 'football player style'.

Bottom line - Brown was a thief and a thug who attacked a cop, and the cop did the correct thing by shooting Brown.

The protesters don't care about the facts. They just want their stolen sneakers and stolen booze from the looted liquor store, and they just want to burn down the business' of innocent people and rule by mob mentality. Idiots.

I dunno if its that they want to loot, i just think they built up a ton of momentum on this thing and rather than cool off and admit they were wrong they all doubled down in a play to save face. Theres tons of people killed by police that are arguably unjustified. This one isnt though, they picked the wrong case to go all in on and now theyre committed. Its stupid.

There are too many loudmouths with pointless opinions in this world. A young man is dead, a community is in turmoil, and the ATS 'blame darkie' brigade is out in full force starring each other and patting each other on the back for their perpetuation of racial tension.

You're living in a powderkeg, and most of you seem either too dense to realize it or waiting to actualize some sick Turner Diaries wet dream. Some of you appear to be frothing at the mouth for a chance to give these 'thugs' and 'looters' and 'Obama voters' a taste of racial warfare.

Way to parrot the police force that investigated themselves and made themselves look like heroes.

Wilson hadn't even gotten the call about a burglary. Ask the store owner, he said he didn't even see Brown in the store.

And this is why things are the way they are in St.Louis. You have too many with this attitude that somehow think they are 'owed' and that its time to pay up. Well guess what,your going to get more than you ever expected.Your just not going to like it.Anybody that walks around thinking they are owed something in this world are delusional at best,and megalomaniac at worst.They comfort themselves by thinking they are 'owed' and don't look at themselves to try to better themselves. In the meantime their lives never improve and they grow older and more bitter as time passes on. One day they wake up and realize they have spent their whole lives waiting for something to happen that was never going to be. It was a life spent in limbo for them,and they have no one to blame but themselves. You can not live your life in a holding pattern waiting for something better to come along,that day never comes. It is only when you go out and make things happen that you finally will get what you really deserve.

Clearly you know more than the grand jurors. They should have had you and your inside information, then they "would have gotten it right" lol...

You don't know much about Dr King, to think to try and co-op him. Dr King was very 'racist' if thats what you would call it. He wanted full reperations, didn't trust his white supporters and was frustrated by the patronising attitude of many whites, not the openly racist ones, but those that sought to help him.

He was a very complex figure and you'd probably be surprised at his views, which are there for you to read in some of his books.

If you're a black teenager who happens to be tall and heavy set, keep in mind that many white people, like our friendly mod FlyersFan, no longer regard you as a youth. You're a grown man, and extremely threatening. A thug who can be shot in the street like a dog, whose corpse was left on full display, and half of America will celebrate it.

Meanwhile, a 6 foot tall white teenager is the captain of the football team, and a local celebrity.

I hope you all realize the Ferguson Police Force ARE TPTB and this is the most transparent look we will ever get of the way they work, if you let yourselves see it. Jim Crow never ended and TPTB have an interest in keeping it going indefinitely.

I wonder if the same thing could be said for the other cops in Ferguson, trying to work on building relationships in the black community

Firstly the looting and violence should have no bearing on what happened when Brown was shot.

If a police officer who is armed and chasing a suspect needs to shoot at him more than a couple of times, then they're in the wrong job.

You shoot his legs, you shoot to maim... you don't just unload just because you know the law is on your side.
Anybody claiming that the killing of an unarmed suspect is "justified" is an absolute idiot.
Maybe we just do things differently, but in the US... you have a serious problem with police officers getting a hard-on for just shooting people... mostly unarmed people that they could quite easily take down or subdue in a non-lethal manner.

I mean there were people trying to justify this a couple of months back when this footage was released
It seems the police get a free pass from some, no matter what they do.

I'm stating the facts ... not 'parroting the police force'. Facts are facts.

Wilson hadn't even gotten the call about a burglary. Ask the store owner, he said he didn't even see Brown in the store.

Wilson said Brown matched the description of the 'strong arm robber' that went over the radio. He had tried to get Brown out of the street and Brown in turn attacked the cop in the cop car. That is indisputable. Brown attacked the cop in the car. The forensic evidence proves this. And the forensic evidence proves that Brown was shot dead while coming at the cop in the street.

The cop did the right thing. Brown is dead because of his own actions.

You're right! In his third version of the story!

In his first, Michael Brown was being confronted for the High Crime of jaywalking.

When does it end?

When does reparations for slavery end?

When does the race card not get played out on every level?

When do people actually step up and take responsibility for their own actions and life?

Na it's better to take all the time given in life and whine, complain, and do destructive things instead of trying to better oneself.

Excuses, laziness, blind ignorance and a victim mentality are the way to roll. Bravo!

A full grown adult man - over six feet tall and over 250 pounds and who attacked a cop IS THREATENING.

A thug who can be shot in the street like a dog, whose corpse was left on full display, and half of America will celebrate it.

Straw man and absurd. A thug who was shot in the street because he tried to steal a cops gun and was attacking a police officer. And no, half of America isn't celebrating.

Meanwhile, a 6 foot tall white teenager is the captain of the football team, and a local celebrity.

If he's not out robbing cigar stores and attacking cops, then that captain of the football team would deserve to be treated well, no matter what his skin color is.

Instead of emotional rhetoric, the facts should be examined. The facts support the cops actions in this case.

Police had said earlier that Brown had no adult criminal record.."


But there is always the possibility of a juvenile record....


Cynthia Harcourt, a lawyer for St. Louis County Juvenile Officer Kip Seely... told the Post-Dispatch that Brown was not facing any Class A or B charges when he died, either.."


Felonies come in more classes than just A and B. Just thought you might want to know that. Oh and they cvan also be downgraded from felonies to misdemeanors.


"When the Ferguson police department released the name of Darren Wilson, they also chose to release video footage which they claimed was of Michael Brown robbing a convenience store for some cigars.
The problem is, the video shows Michael Brown at the register, paying for the cigars."

Wow, I am at a loss for words...... Goddamned firing squad. Bunch of pussies. Same with Wilson. They were all within optimal range to deploy tazers. They are issued tazers for a reason, and it aint to decorate their toolbelt.
