Yes we are here and we are sitting back watching waiting on the panthers to make a wrong move!
We are sick if these black animals intimidating voters and running around saying they are going to kill whites and white babies. Since you weak ass whites will not stand up for your own metrosexual asses, we will do it for you!
Then we will kick your ass and take your women and give them a chance to be with a real man!

"could have already been collected or washed away" -- if so - that alone would indicate a crime, cover-up and possible conspiracy to obstruct justice committed by local authorities.
In a properly conducted crime scene and forensic exam - that kind of tampering with a body would NEVER happen.

From the looks of the video with him robbing the man of the cigars I'm guessing this wasn't the first time he done this kind of thing a first timer would have been scared and ran not stick around and try to bully a little old man. The same goes for him with the run in with the police officer I bet the people in the neighborhood would tell a different side of him than what is being portrayed on the news. It does not matter what city or race you are. Everyone knows you are not suppose to assault police officers this police officer was just doing what he is trained to do.

The BS from the St. Louis PD thickens, as no one from the stores employees ever called the cops! See here;

Consider ALL actions / re-actions by Ferguson PD in the wake of the killing;
1) No video of any kind available from the police vehicle or the officer.
2) The officer kills the subject, then leaves the scene - and the body is left just laying in the street for a long period of time.
3) The police chief makes several contradictory and inflammatory statements in the days following the killing.
4) The PD refuses to identify the officer for several days.
5) The PD finally releases the name of the office and immediately begins a campaign of demonizing the dead victim - while glorifying the killer cop as some sort of great guy etc ...
Never has such a small PD smelled like such a BIG rat.
Lots of questions for the BIG rat, and no answers.

The PD needs to do some heavy lifting in the thinking department and figure out how this all could have been handled better. Could it be a lesson learned?

A response, yes. Whether or not it will be plausible, well, we are dealing with topix conservatives here...

Why is anyone surprised with what is going on in St. Louis right now?
Sounds like a perfect description of poor, white, trailer-trash rednecks all over the south.

Conquered - back in 1865 and they've just never gotten over it.

Connecticut has some pretty run down inner cities, like Bridgeport, Hartford, New Haven, and Waterbury, and they are filled with African Americans, and Puerto Ricans.

Connecticut, is probably one of the most segregated U.S state, its charming rich rural European Americans, and its dank poor inner city ghettos filled with African Americans, and Puerto Ricans.

<quoted text>Not at all - this was the first released / the ST. Louis coroner has not released theirs, and the DOJ is currently conducting theirs today.

The other witness may have saw shots fired and thought he was hit - again, none of us know how many times the officers weapon was discharged yet. This has yet to be released.

Why not wait for all reports before dismissing everyone's account?
The autopsy all ready proved the witness lied. Doesn't matter how many times he fired. You stop shooting when the threat is over. The autopsy you are referring to was the second autopsy. Get your facts straight. Maybe there is residue on the hat or clothes the violent teen was wearing. The second autopsy you are referring to didn't have the clothing or hat. Maybe that cleared it up for you a little.
