I agree. I guess they think its gonna disappear? I thought I heard his Mom or her Attorney say that the video is irrelevant. Um, according to the LAW, it is gonna be relevant. It happened the same day.,.not 10 years ago, So of course, its relevant.

F**K you TopMod 15. Enjoy your job while you can. Topix is going down!
please explain the exact reasons why you think topix is going down. also please explain what seems to be your hostility to topmod 15. do you think the same person is always top mod 15? I think each new moderator should get a new number and the old numbers should be retired when a person who is a moderator no longer works for topix. Then we cannot blame one person for what the previous moderator wrote.

They are t being killed because they have black skin, they are being killed because they are living the black culture which idolizes thugs and gangsta's. It's the culture that is bad, not the skin and you have ALL the power to fix that, white people can't do it for you!
black culture is not monolithic. neither is white culture. there are many subcultures within each racial group, just as there are many subcultures within most ethnic, religious, ethnic groups. there is not just one Arab Muslim subculture, nor just one Jewish subculture. variety thrives almost everywhere.
it is scary when it is not allowed to thrive. some aspects of some subcultures are much nicer than others, according to my standards. I don't think white thugs and gangsters are very nice. I don't think white racists are very nice. I don't like thugs and gangsters within any group. I do not like people who are hateful and overgeneralize, within any group.

we don't know yet about all the details which are relevant to whether it would be called a justifiable shooting. apparently the officer is required to be in fear of great bodily harm or of losing his life before he fires each of the shots. we do not know what was in his mind at the time. it would help if more forensic evidence and more videos were available about what happened at the police car in the beginning of the situation, and also if more videos were available about what happened after Brown turned around - did he move forward or begin to fall down? how far was he from the officer? were his hands in plain sight, with nothing threatening in them? people are too eager to rush to conclusions depending on their initial biases. I strongly suspect that neither Brown nor Wilson behaved correctly, and that neither was/is a nice guy. Death is an extreme penalty for not being a nice guy. In a place like Ferguson, given the number of white police, and the possibility that some of them may be white racists and/or hotheads, a young man who does shoplifting, pushing around a shopkeeper, resisting arrest, and then running away is likely to get into big trouble.
When I see all the young black children imitating the hands up don't shoot slogan, I also think they should be taught hands to yourself, don't shoplift and don't bully people. All children should be taught that - of whatever race, gender, religion, ethnicity. Common courtesy would be a wise element of being a moral person, and possibly one in less danger of getting into trouble.

Well, a comment like that certainly won't help with the present discourse. But if you think black people aren't killing white people simply because they are white, I'd direct you to the Chris Lane or Delbert Belton murders.

Either way, black or white, you cannot attack a law enforcement officer and expect no repercussions.
Perhaps you should spend some time learning the facts of the case you're posting about rather than calling people rednecks.

Oh, and your threats don't scare me, slick. If I end up the news at all, it will be for putting down some animal (of any race) that makes a move against me or mine. But it won't come to that, because you've got nothing but internet rhetoric.

You are correct about so much.....But, i have yet to see any evidence that would confirm any charges on Officer Wilson.....ZERO.....

The black race is the most racist race in America. The black race has the most in prisons for a reason, they do more crimes is why. The black race kill more black race then any other race killing it's own. the black race use slavery that happened a 100 yrs ago as an excuse but all other races cant use what happened to their races 100 yrs ago in America. The black race fell for a half white half black unexperienced chicago neighborhood organizer and voted for the idiot, twice. The black race had some good leaders like MLK but spit on his memory. The black race has the highest unemployment because they don't want to work. The most un-fatherd children because the men are cowards. The highest welfare because of so many single mothers with children by dead beats. The most with no balls to stand up and knock the hell out of people like the al sharptons and jessie jacksons of their race. The only race in America that has free college for their race and most don't use it. The small % of decent black people of the black race, which is 13% of the population of America need to speak out.
U r wrong there. White people elected Obama. Without their vote 12 percent of the population can't elect a president. Of course a lot of dead people voted and in large cities people voted more than once but that is no reason to expect voters to have an id to identify themselves.

10 TRUTHS BLACK PEOPLE WON'T ADMIT:

1. O.J. did it.

2. Tupac is dead.

3. Teeth should not be decorated.

4. Weddings should start on time.

5. Your pastor doesn't know everything.

6. Jesse Jackson will never be President.

7. RED is not a Kool Aid flavor, it's a color.

8. Church does not require expensive clothes.

9. Crown Royal bags are meant to be thrown away.

10. Your rims and sound system should not be worth
more than your car.

I think I was quite clear that it was not ALL black people when I said it was not about black skin, but about black culture, That MEANS there is diversity within their race HOWEVER it is a VERY large portion of their race that subscribes to the culture I explained earlier, and there is more to what is wrong with that culture than I went through but the point is stereotypes come about for a reason, the reason is, it is statistically correct. Are there bad White ppl YES are their good Muslims YES, the question is how do the MAJORITY of those groups act, or how destructive are the minority of that group who act badly and that is how preconceived notions about how the ones you do not know will act, and these types of predictions although not fair to those individuals who are pre-judged, are necessary for the safety of those judging how best to preserve themselves. So I did not over generalize I generalized just the right amount.

I would like to share one more bit of support for my position with you and that is that if you want to call it anything but black culture I direct you to the beginning of the saggy pants era, the gangsta's are cool era, the whole Screw everybody else I will just take what I want from anyone else whether I earned it, deserve it, or not Era. All this and worse which gets its roots in Rap music was started by black people, and is to this day dominated by black people. Just how many white people do you see on stage at a rap concert? and as a percentage of their race how many blacks listen to rap vs. whites

Apparently you didn't read the part whir the officer had his eye socket smashed by this angelic 300# savage who was apparently trying to grab for his gun
Not being able to see too well ,he miraculously shot this POS 6 times before dropping his dead carcass to the street,

.
Rather then prosecuting him he should get the officer of the year award .

Why is it no black that gets righteously wasted is nothing less than 13 yrs. old in his picture and angelic Just in this past yr this POS ,brown, has 4 felony charges logged against his angelic ass in another county According to that Ebonics speaking attorney, Crump, he had turned his life around Funny that happens to ever dead thug when their parents are setting someone or some municipality up far a lawsuit in lew of working for a living.

When blacks or whites act like animals, they deserve no quarter ...difference is that most whites accept the fact that their family member was a POS that crossed the line

Take the guns away from citizens and police. Problem solved. If we were allowed to have a true socialist nation then the stores being looted would be owned by us and ran by our government. People wouldn't burn and loot them. I personally believe that the looting and rioting is being staged by the local cops there. I've been watching the coverage on MSNBC and all I have seen is peaceful demonstrations.
You have got to be kidding! Well not really surprised a Democrat would write something as stupid as this. No, not at all. You need to move to a real socialist country and live.
