Honest Journalism is an oxymoron There is no honesty or integrity left since the 24hrs a day programming started years back.

LOL at the US version of history.
I bet you think your country was set up for religious freedoms too.
Did you know the puritans left the UK because we wouldn't allow them to have an overbearing religion based society that persecuted other religions? They wanted to be able to kick out the jews and try the catholics for apostasy, like Iran does now.
However the real split between us was when we abolished slavery in the colonies, it having never in all history been legal in the UK. You guys were just too invested in being evil racist scum.
Later in the 20th century, you muppets turned up late to two world wars after the victor had already been decided and so embarrassing was your performance that for almost a century you've been pretending nobody else took part.
Hey dude don't you just love the fourth of july?
Whats that day all about?

Ben Crump's growing reputation for false narratives is not a diversion, since his narrative is at the heart of this current controversy.....

My comments were about your diffusion of focus, jumping from one topic to another, not about Ben Crump, however skilled he may be at diverting attention. It's completely irrelevant to our discussion. Be that as it may, I've lost interest in trying to keep you on track. I'm not here to bicker.

Your comments were about those pushing a racist agenda, which I agreed is exactly what Ben Crump is doing.

Try to keep up.......

I believe the story about the gangbanger attacking the officer because it makes more sense, and because it will be proven when the Grand Jury report comes out. Look at the people you are hearing from. The main witness against the officer, is a gangbanger who has a warrant out for him from another earlier crime. He just cut a deal, and recanted his story, so there is literally no one to speak for Mr Brown. You have a series of pictures of Mr Brown flashing his gang signs, he so wanted to be a good little gangbanger

Gee guess we kicked uk's ass to get to the 4th of july.
The other thing. In this day and age of cell phones and I-pads. Almost nothing goes unrecorded.
So why is there no video, the young girl has after shooting but nothing before?
Some one has a copy of what happened but they are not giving it up!
Money on the line and bet you that tape will appear.

Way before the 24 hrs a day programming

Most problems in the United States today exist BECAUSE at the end of WWII, the VERY Wealthy
Backers of the Third Reich GOT OFF SCOTT FREE.

A synopsis from "Trading with the Enemy" shows the enormity of the problem.

"FORD supplied tanks to Hitler, the Chase Bank financed the Nazis in Paris, ITT built rocket bombs for Goering and Standard Oil fueled U-boats in the Atlantic."

With the advent of commercially viable television in the early 50's, it was a very simple matter for this fascist BIG Money to gain control of the information flow.........and therby corrupting journalism.

No, it's "pretty damn dumb" to assault someone who is armed..........
Even dumber to suggest a violent assault is somehow justified...
Alright, it was piss-poor training and preparation that led them both to get so close to the thuggery.
The alleged assaults should have both been anticipated. I say they were provoked.....

Dead men tell no tales.....self-defense......ju stification at the tip of their fingers.

Trying to teach black people not to steal is like trying to explain blue to a blind person.
