Finally someone with some sense! He's right. He shouldn't be under fire. Brown's mom knew how her child was before he got shot. If you steal stuff out
of a store, then think you can disobey a police officer, than you should be shot. My deepest condolences, but he had it coming, and the whole riot
things is a mother's plea so her child wouldn't get recognized as the bad guy, when in fact he was, and they used white on black as alabel in
order to commune that the police officer was the bad guy, when he was just doing his job. Every last one of those people who protested, need to go to
jail or prison cause this whole uproar is ridiculous. The rioting didn't solve a damn thing, and now the want to be civilly unrest? No. Sit
y'all asses down. Its too late. Your badass kid shouldn't have did what he did lady.
Stealing cigars and disobeying a police officer doesn't mean someone deserves to die. IMHO Michael Brown wasn't a nice guy, as evident by his
behavior, but I don't hate him, I don't want him dead. We are still talking about a person's life here, that you so casually dismiss as being worth
throwing away. What is the point of police officers having tasers, if not for this type of situation? Without the gun in play Michael brown would
never had been able to get his hands on it.
We give cops tasers so as to reduce the number of instances where the have to threaten someone's life when using force. Instead of using this tool for
that purpose, they simply use a taser to force cooperation, and a gun when they need to use force. This isn't how it's supposed to be.
It's an unfortunate situation for everyone involved, I find it really upsetting that there are people here who seem take pleasure in the fact that
Michael Brown was killed. They are contributing to the inability to discuss this topic logically and rationally, not only because of their own remarks
but also because then the pro-brown side associates anyone who disagrees with them as being the same as those running around happy about brown's
There is plenty of BS from both sides to make a person angry, but don't let that anger control you. Instead of venting against Brown and his
supporters, furthering the divide between peoples, why not just cool down and think things over before deciding to post? Are you really happy he is
dead? Or are you angry that the pro-brown crowd is acting ridiculous and it feels good to say it? For the record I believe the pro-brown crowd is
definitely being ridiculous, but venting anger against them won't solve anything.
There is blame enough for everyone. For those running the police departments who set the tone for conduct and put officers in situations where they
violate people's rights, for the officers themselves who think they are gods, and for the citizens who think they can do anything and abuse anyone
just because of their skin color, to citizens at large who's apathy allows these situations to happen in the first place.
