<quoted text>Two hundred school age youth were killed so far this year in Chicago and none of them made the national news or received attention from Obama. http://www.fireandreamitchell.com/2014/08/14/...
A 6'4" , 292 pound young man hard armed and robbed a 5 foot tall convenience store clerk then brutally attacked a police office who was doing the duty he was called for and you think the police officer should have let the criminal steal his weapon and kill him and let him and his accomplice leave the scene so that they could rob someone else or kill someone else? Why?
Short Answer: Because he's black and we have a "black" President with a black AG.

Thanks USA and well said, crazy Ray is the deaf, dumb and blind person that you speak of.
I haven't seen anything on the news about Jewish people beheading Christian children or threatening to kill any one in the world who didn't convert. I don't remember the news reporting that any of the people that highjacked airliners and crashed them into the World Trade Center or other targets were Jewish. The only thing standing between radical Muslims in the Middle East and a threat to our sovereignty is Israel. It is sad that the world is the way it is ,but it is more sad that the occupant of The White House is on the wrong side and thrives on the divisiveness.

The chief of police said the officer had no knowledge of the incident at the store. The two men were in the middle of the street, he attempted to make them move.
The point of the photos of the store incident is an attempt to depict him as a criminal therefore justifying the shooting. It is blaming the victim for his own death. Like blaming a woman's attire fir being raped
It's painting a clearer picture of the character and potential violent and criminal nature of that young man.

Whether the police officer should be tried and convicted for shooting him will be determined.

But Brown was not an innocent "young kid" or a "regular guy" as he is being portrayed.

And the officer had a sterling record after being on the force for six years.

Again, the truth will be come out soon enough about the officer's innocence or guilt. But any and all relevant information about this young man and the circumstances leading up to his death is fair game in the meantime considering the one-sided hysteria it has caused.

Even shorter answer: Obama and Holder aren't able to politicize thousands of blacks killing each other in Chicago.

It's only worthy of the federal government's undivided attention when it's a white on black sensational local tragedy.

(well...guess it really wasn't a shorter answer...)

No one shot Cliven Bundy dead in the street, it's irrelevant if the boy stole cigars. The police had no right to kill him, arrest him if he committed a crime and give him a trial, not the death penalty on the spot. We, as a society have got to completely reject this premise, white or black.
After Brown and his accomplice committed strong armed robbery,the convince store clerk called the police. When the police approached Brown,Brown brutally attacked him and tried to take his gun. What part(s) of that scenario should be changed? How about don't commit robbery and assault , don't attack a police officer and don't attempt to murder a police officer? I someone tries to steal a police officers weapon,isn't the purpose to attempt to murder the police officer. The accomplice could be charged with accessory to attempted murder?

The looters were from out of town and were about 12 in number - all arrested - or so I heard.

Most of the protestors who live in that town are protesting peaceably. They have a right to do that even though it's not going6 to help the investigation or the process.

Wearing revealing clothing is not a crime,robbing a store is a crime. Assaulting a police officer is a crime.

Actually if you weren't such a political hack you would know that the Republicans have contributed absolutely nothing in the way of helping clean up their many messes, or to help Obama in any way. They have hindered his ever move. After all as you morons ignore daily this is the very worst Congress in our history with the very worst approval, yet that doesn't concern you and your fellow morons.Now as far as crying, are you really that stupid as to no be aware that is all you people do every hour of every day is whine, bitch and moan, interrupted only to cry and pretend. You baggers are disgusting and Americas embarrassment, only concerned with greed and power. You couldn't care less about helping fellow Americans in any way.
Obama made it very clear to them very early on that "he won" when they respectfully asked to be included in the process of reforming health care and agreeing on the stimulus package.

He intentionally and sometimes spitefully left them out of the process from day one.

You can't catch flies that way. And then expect them to kiss your ass.

Moreover, the video demonstrates he wasn't the "kid" the media portrays him to be.
Very capable of punching out a cop and attempting to get the cop's gun. This guy could play in the NFL as a lineman if he had a half a brain.
A very similar scenario occurred with the Trayvon Martin case. The Liberal media kept plastering every media outlet with pictures of an innocent smiling grade school boy although Martin had grown into a monster street punk since.

It wasn't until better news media sources got hold of his social network rantings and Gangsta pics that a clear picture began to emerge.

But once this began, the Liberal Media shot back with how unfair it was to release the criminal record of a "child". He was in trouble for theft at school, he punched out a bus driver, etc......

Expect them same from Liberal Media on this one, too. Brown is going to be portrayed as being as innocent as the driven snow and his crime was a "minor" one undeserving death.

Robbery, in the black community, is considered "minor" crime.

Some of those children in Chicago were white children killed by black gang members,shouldn't Holder bring in the DOJ and FBI and consider that a race crime? Holder has sued states ,why doesn't he sue Chicago?

The Executive Branch and the Department of Justice are part of the federal government.

The Executive Branch has called on the Department of Justice as well as the FBI to get involved.

You can't get the federal government any more involved than that.

It looks bad on the surface from the outside looking in - even with the robbery video - that an unarmed young man could be shot down in the street.
But there's a lot of information no one knows. The scuffle in the police car is one thing. The policeman's gun supposedly went off inside the car.
Some of the protestors said Brown was a "regular guy". Again, with no justification to shoot him even if with the robbery, Brown was obviously not a "regular guy". He looked like a guy looking for trouble and didn't have to answer to anyone in the video..
It's best like you said to wait for all the facts to come out.
The police officer in question had a sterling record and on the force for six years. His actions seem clearly like an overreaction, but there's probably more to this story than we know.
I'm waiting for the big-eared junior in the Oval Office to hold a press conference repeating his earlier stupidity of "What the Ferguson(Boston) Police did was stupid".

Maybe he won't. Maybe his handlers took him aside and convinced him that his stupid talk might work sucking up to the black community but it will just inflame the rest of America.

Wasn't it Magic Negro's butty Rahm Emanuel who was famous for saying "Never let a good crisis go to waste"?

Exploitation runs through the Magic Negro Playbook like stripes on a Hyena.

He will tell jokes at funerals to get votes.
