He got fired. Do they usually fire people doing their jobs correctly? Where does that happen? Yes. Still does. Oh, except that whole gunning down an unarmed teen thing. Small potatoes. He'll just move to another department. Maybe near you.


You are not going to see a valid claim because you see just the things you like. I can tell from your posts that you'll never, ever, consider that every Police Officer on this Officer's PREVIOUS force, got let go. The entire department got disbanded.

You are assigning guilt by association. The exact thing that minorities complain about all of the time.

If you have any kind of business sense or common sense, for that matter, you'd have a clue that sometimes businesses come in and "clean house" because its easier than picking the one's you'd like to keep.

You have forgotten the fact, that some of those Officers got out of Criminal Justice all together because they did not have a clean referral or record as an Officer. This Officer, obviously had a clean record immediately got hired , and has even been commended.

Minorities get the respect that they deserve. If you act like part of a community, you'll get treated like it. If you come out at night, use scare tacticts, you'll get treated like a thug. Take responsibility for your actions. Quit blaming everyone else.

In fact, if this Officer can rise above a shitty family history and become an upstanding community person, so can others. He should be commended on that...not criticized for it.

This officer was fired. This officer emptied his gun on an unarmed teen. This officer was fired, not commended, not excused, and not given a second chance by the city counsel. If his record was exemplary, he would have been transferred. He was not, now a boy is dead by his heavy hand. So they should give him a medal? Unreal.

Okay, So Mike Brown is in the ground. Spike is back in New York or wherever, maybe with the movie rights. Whatever.

Sharpton is wherever. Jesse is wherever. They got their photo ops and can now press the faithful for cash. Whatever.

So we had a governor who called off the local police in the midst of unpeaceful, disruptive protests, rioting, and looting. The theme was no justice no peace. Looters proceeded to loot dozens of Missouri businesses unhindered. A complete and total breakdown of law and order occurred, at the instructions of our governor.

Now is the time to begin the investigations into the governor's actions, and whether he was responding to threats from DOJ, Holder, and company, or if this was all on him. If it is the latter, he should resign.

We as citizens deserve to know what went on here. We need to see all communications between DOJ personnel and MO state personnel. We need to see all internal MO govt communications. We need explanations, under oath, from all actors involved, as to how this happened.

We need the MO state legislature to step it up and investigate this matter, in a thorough, transparent manner.

This cannot be allowed to happen again.

Really? Yes really, when? When I said I did, how much?$20 and I gave u a rebuttal, I did not say brown was as bad as columbine, you said that, your just trying to avoid facing what brown did to contribute to his own demise. America saw on video what brown was you can not lie or deflect the facts, the only way Wilson will be indicted will be if holder the racist does it, he will still be found not guilty . Cry all you want. Hopefully Wilson will have a wad of cash after this is over because people are outraged by liars like you

I understand the need to protect folks' 1st amendment rights--within reason. But with that hands off decision, I think that the gov sent the green light signal to thugs from all over to come on in to FERG and do their thing.

I find it hard to believe that a sitting governor would be that naive--Nixon just does not seem that stupid. There has to be something else going on here. Like an agenda to break towns like that and put them under somebody's thumb. To me, this leads to be suspicious that the DOJ is heavily involved. And if it is, there needs to be corrective action and regulations put in place to ensure this does not happen again.

If my suspicions are correct, a republican landslide in the midterms, followed by senate investigations, followed by a special prosecutor, and corrective action, including restitution to the FERG community are in order.

Domestically, we now have the IRS scandal, and seems like now a DOJ scandal.

MLK's modus operandi was to go into a city, do some preaching, and have a private meeting with city leaders and lean on them--accede to our demands or the dogs attack. You see where that got him and us. Didn't work for him then, we cannot let that work now.

Here's your explanation , your stupid. So was brown. Saying brown was killed for stealing cigars is like saying the columbine killers ended up dead because they wore black trench coats. You Libs wish you could write the script how you like, too bad facts get in the way

You cry and cry about people judging brown by his past actions, before the incident that got his brains blown out, yet you do the same thing to officer Wilson . It's called being a hypocrite, embrace it

Well said. Based on the leaks to date, it appears that Brown is dead because he attacked a cop.

That might incorrect, but, based on what I've heard, it appears to summarize it.

They lost with Rodney. They lost with Crystal. They lost with Trayvon. IMO, it is most likely that they will lose with Mike.

With Trayvon it was "Justice for Trayvon". With Mike its escalated to "No Justice No Peace". This is not an accident. This is intentional escalation of hostilities.

What' next? "Damn the Facts-Total Race War NOW!"?

Exactly, most on this forum, myself included say that it appears to be a justified shoot, if not so be it. But blk dumbo and colbert could care less if it was justified, they just want to hang the cop and will lie and twist facts to accomplish that. And they wonder why racism is alive and well, people meet hate with hate.

Well, maybe you need to clean your glasses, because you have been told OVER AND OVER that this little cigar smoking boy was not shot because he stole cigars. That's all I'm going to say in this post about that because when we give you too much information at once, it seems to overwhelm you. You can't process more than one thing at a time. That's ok. We will be here to help you get thru everything and we will feed you slowly.

Cop shoots this unarmed guy, not arrest, shot dead. And somehow that's the community's fault. The rest of your gibberish is not worth this time.
Outstanding.
Spare me with your condescending bilge. It's simply amazing that you continue to circumvent the issue of Brown assaulting the police officer who then had no choice but to shoot him in the self defense. Of course, you'd never concede that being the blinkered individual you are. Moreover, please quit depicting Brown as a martyr thereby acting as though he couldn't possibly have been a threat because he was unarmed. Do you really think a guy of his size isn't capable of disarming another person let alone a police officer? That said, Brown has nobody to blame but himself. However, it's misguided dullards like you who blindly defend this robber while fomenting hate and violence that I have a problem with.

I'm not looking at any crap you post, especially from cnn, what a waste of time. I'll wait for the investigation to end. And your threat about paying one way or another is spoken like a true thug lib, damn the justice system, we will take the law into our own hands. don't you know that type of attitude is what got poor little browns head blown off. I'd advise against it,

Onward, American patriot. I'm sure as he spends this money on his mothers bail and strip clubs, he thanks you. You are truly something.
His mother is dead! Did you not comprehend that in the article? A black man shot her in the had after she stole his damn cigar. Go read it again. LOL
