If Brown were not black this would have been ignored and would not be in the news. If Brown were not black,Obama would not have mentioned it and Holder would not have gone to Ferguson. If Brown were white,Holder might be pursuing civil rights complaints against Brown.

Reagan also communicated with the American people as to his policies and getting more people on his side. He met frequently with Democrats and even befriended many of them.

However, all past presidents have communicated to the people important information about world and domestic events and crises and where America stands and any plan of action. All past presidents have reached out and included the other side in the governing process as well.

This president doesn't communicate much of anything to anyone. Half of his liberal base probably has no idea what ISIL is much less the threat it poses to them and the rest of the country.

They probably don't know about the Christian persecution epidemic either. Don't recall this president uttering one word of condemnation about it.

But his base knows exactly where he stands on Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin.

even in the Vietnam era, it was relatively easy to get a direct commission (even as 1st Lt or Captain) based on receipt of a worthwhile college degree, prior to enlisting, and without undergoing basic training.....

too bad you had to suck off so many on your path to a charity commission....

maybe you should have gone to college.....

"In Ferguson, in 2011, 31-year-old Jason Moore suffered a heart attack after he was repeatedly shocked with a stun gun, according to a report in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch." So appears some officers carry tasers. That doesn't mean that Wilson did. However, it doesn't look like it makes any difference:
"If the Ferguson Police Department's account of Brown's death is accurate, a stun gun would be an unlikely option to handle a charging suspect, experts say.
"There has to be time to deploy the stun gun and it’s not always readily available," said Wayne Fisher, a professor with the Rutgers University Police Institute in New Jersey. "Secondly, in the example of an armed offender closing in on the officer, it's necessary at that point to use the level of force which has the highest opportunity for stopping the armed aggressor, and that would be a firearm.”
"The Chicago Police Department's use-of-force policy suggests officers deploy stun guns against people who are "actively resisting," but not necessarily assaulting an officer."
“Generally a stun gun is usable where there is discretionary time during which the officer has to make a decision about the best course of action. If the facts are such that deadly force is immediately called for, a stun gun is not a suitable alternative.”
http://www.latimes.com/nation/nationnow/la-na...
tasers (stun guns) are used more often by police to punish suspects than to subdue them....

tasers should be used only once, but police frequently use them repeatedly, resulting in unnecessary deaths....

Galt's opinion is that tasers are an unacceptable risk....

I am fully cognizant that some posters here regard my comments as being harsh and unfeeling regarding the Brown shooting. So be it.
Whenever the death of a thief, a bully or any generally criminal element of black culture is exploited unashamedly for political and financial profit by not only the Poverty Pimp Twins but also by the parents of the deceased, black religious leaders and the POTUS and his racist sidekick, I feel strongly that this is a no-brainer, folks.
These parasites exhibit more sincere feeling of sadness for a dollar bill blow into a storm drain than for the passing of Fatboy Brown or Trayvon Thug Martin.
The gloves are off and I will not pretend to be respectful towards a circus of insincere, perfidious opportunists. Counterfeit Emotions deserve only the harshest of responses.

DOJ Attorneys: Lerner’s Emails Exist, But Here’s Why We Aren’t Turning Them Over

By Jennifer Van Laar 24 mins ago

Despite IRS officials’ sworn testimony and affidavits to the contrary, a DOJ attorney has learned there is a backup system where Lois Lerner’s emails are stored.
So why haven’t they been produced, pursuant to subpoena and court order?
Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton explained on Fox News this afternoon:
A Department of Justice attorney told a Judicial Watch attorney on Friday that it turns out the federal government backs up all computer records in case something terrible happens in Washington and there’s a catastrophe, so the government can continue operating. And they say it would be too hard to go get Lois Lerner’s emails from that backup system.

So everything we’ve been hearing about scratched hard drives…it’s all been a pack of malarkey. They could get these records, but they don’t want to.

And there’s no such thing as Lois Lerner’s missing emails. It’s all been a big lie. They’ve been lying to the courts, to the American people, to Congress. It’s outrageous.
Mr. Fitton goes on to say,“The Obama administration needs to get on the ball and start retrieving them [the emails], as opposed to stonewalling and continuing to obstruct justice.”
Judicial Watch will be asking the Court for relief on this issue, likely in the form of a court order to produce the emails from the backup system.

==========

Another BIG LIE....everything about Obama Administration is a bad joke! Eric Holder and Obama should be cell mates for a long long time.

You white liberal faux anti-racists are so sensitive. Tar-Baby is a fictional character in the Uncle Remus stories published in 1881; it is a doll made of tar and turpentine used to entrap Br'er Rabbit.
It's not healthy to be so sensitive you make everyone feel like they're walking on eggshells. You know that feeling, right? It's not a good feeling.
Weren't you one of those criticizing Reid for his comment "One problem I’ve had today is keeping my Wongs straight?” I suggest you should look in the mirror when you say "It's not healthy to be so sensitive." Hypocrite

Here's Black columnist Eric L. Wattree's take on things:

"And it seems that White conservatives will never learn that by trotting people like Allen West, Herman Cain, or Dr. Ben Carson out before the public, they’re doing themselves a disservice in the Black community. Black people know and understand our own people. We warned America that Herman Cain had a flawed character. Then when it came out that he was a philandering pervert, conservatives were shocked, while the Black community walked away snickering, and asked, "What else is new?"
.
So you see, it’s not Black people who are out of touch. We overwhelmingly support the Democratic Party because we have sense enough not to reject the Bogeyman just to go out and support the Devil.

Black people understand that ANY Black person who aligns him or herself with the conservative agenda has to be either an idiot or suffer from a severe character flaw. Sound crazy? Okay, well, just ask yourself, how do you feel about Americans who align themselves with Al Qaeda? Well, why is it so difficult to understand why the Black community would feel the exact same way about a group where one of its representatives, Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-Colorado), would say, being associated with President Obama would be similar to touching a "tar baby."

And you being the poor illiterate moron that you are have whined and obsessed ever since. Your daily whimpering for 4-5 years now is a sad reflection on your miserable life...You bragged about being a R O and when I questioned you about that on a few different occasions you ran like the wimp that you are. There is no such rank as a Corporal Captain dumbo you are as dumb as Flack.So obsess on you proven lying loser. I guess you will just have to read the book..Huh Idiot. By the way no one really cares what you think. This is the only place in life where you can even get someone to talk to you and you are forced to attack them to even make that happen..

It was unloaded__but who can tell__two officers approached the crazed white mofo and one tried to tase him but his shirt blocked the darts and the other officer opened fire hitting Roach multiple times.
Ricochet's killed the young lady and wounded an OPD Lt.
She was just out with her friends having some fun.
The young lady's family will win the insurance lottery while Kody Roach, who survived, will go to trial where his parents will explain what a nice young boy he is__when he's not drinking.
this case shows the lack of logic in the use of tasers.....

tasers are supposedly used when the situation calls for less-than-lethal force....

when the taser didn't work, what justified gunfire???...
