Gangs aren't paid to "serve and protect". Your argument plays into the narrative you seem to oppose.

you'd think people tasked with keeping the peace would be a little more careful to avoid disturbing it, i guess everyone needs to score some points.

There are good teachers and bad teachers. There are good doctors and bad doctors. There are good McDonalds window clerks and there are not.

To take a group of people and declare them all bad is the basic definition of prejudice.

Gangs? I have met bad cops and paid for it and have also relatives in Law enforcement where some are good and some are shady but they are not a gang. This is the media image that is pumped into your head. With words and quick clips of violence.

In a nutshell, explain what is truly wrong and offensive to have a Darren Wilson Day? Do I think it was a great PR move, well, yes and no. Who is affected by this? MB's parents? Please, they are so sad that their son choose a path that got himself killed. Every parent tries but sometimes there is no helping a child hell bent on a poor lifestyle of decisions.

Again, what is truly wrong with celebrating a day where an accused officer was found to not be charged by local gov't or the DOJ after basically being 'falsely accused' of his actions? The don't think Holder would have held back if something was found.

They want to have a Darren Wilson Day, fine, but don't make on the anniversary of Mike Brown's death. That's beyond asinine. How about the date of acquittal? This was intentional. And it looks like it got the desired effect.

Of course it could. However, that fact doesn't make either right. This isn't a one way street.

But no worries though...the Oath Keepers are in Ferguson help. Or something.

It doesn't make either side right, but why is it that only one side gets the bad press for it?
Oh, I forgot the narrative... gotta stick to that narrative...

The looters and rioters aren't getting bad press? Are they getting good press? No press? Hmm.

This is really stupid on so many levels.

If you are a police officer or in charge in Ferguson in any capacity, you want to de-escalate the situation, get your community involved in policing itself and crime reduction. You also need some good PR for the police department.

Policing a community is only effective when you have some community help, involvement or buy in. That's leadership 101.

Making it harder for the police to do their job, making it more dangerous for the police and making it harder for the community and police to work together is probably the stupidest thing I've seen all week.

This country has a problem with racism. What this police department did was inflame it. And if they didn't see the possobe consequences of their action, if they saw nothing wrong with doing this on the anniversary of a death, rightful or wrongful, that caused a very large debate to begin, they should be flipping burgers, not armed and policing our streets

Deny it all you want. Thinly veil it. No one is fooled but those doing the denying.

Mod Note: Enough with the snide remarks

Sorry, but whether it was a clean shoot or not, whether he did nothing wrong or not, this is both incendiary and in poor taste,

A Facebook posting declaring Sunday 'Darren Wilson Day' in this college town brought protesters to the police station on Monday and strong criticism from city leaders.

A post on the Columbia Police Officers Association’s Facebook page, which appeared on the one-year anniversary of the fatal shooting of black teenager Michael Brown by white Ferguson Police officer Darren Wilson, called Wilson "an innocent, but persecuted, officer."

The post included a message saying that support for Wilson has nothing to do with race. The author of the post said the police officers organization supports Wilson because of "the fact that he was thoroughly investigated ... and found he did NOTHING wrong." [Source]

Police and poilice unions...well they just ought to know better and be better than this.

What the hell is wrong with people? I swear I'm believing more and more that someone is pulling some puppet strings. Hard.

Why is it so bad to have a Darren Wilson day? His life has been thoroughly ruined, his image slandered and his and hisfamilies lives threatened because he defended himself against a violent criminal and got his name dragged through the mud by zealous, mindless social justice zombies just like you. He will probably be in hiding the rest of his life. All because some gangbanger was to broke to buy swishers for his weed.

Ignoring my opinion on the subject, Wilson. Simply, It's called "fanning the flames".

Common sense should be that LE should not be in the business of amplifying tensions that puts property or lives at risk in order to praise worship on one of its members whom has long since been compensated. It makes it appear as if their attempting to incite more violence perhaps so they can collect more overtime.

Yet it seems to be the opposite these days, at least in the dozens if not hundreds of examples we're seeing in recent years.

Kind of makes you wonder what bar they dreamed this up and decided it was a good idea in and how much tequila was involved.

a reply to: BlackmoonJester

Yeah. Kind of goes to intent.

a Darrell Wilson honorific day is viewed as a 'kick-in-the-teeth' even though it might be correct

the police - in a show of support - might have stressed that investigative-discovery

led to a true analysis of the volatile situation ~ hence LAw and Order Prevailed
