How does it make you feel that Americans are being captured, tortured and murdered in the middle east? Any coward can sit in their underwear in front of their computer and write garbage on Topix. If you truly care about America, then you should be doing something productive for your country. Don't blame everyone around you for all of your failures in life. Blame yourself for not working hard enough, or smart enough. Stupid coward!

Awww, poor little white guy. You resort to a inane racial characterization when the facts overwhelm you.
Typical stormfront drivel.
So, you stupid racist prick... now that you know Brown was not shot in the back and over a dozen witnesses back the officer's version and the officer is recovering from Brown breaking the bones around one of his eyes, is your bullsh#t detector imploding?

Does anyone ever hear Larry apologize, or even admit his nonsense? He puts on a show of humor and wanting to wait for actual investigation, but we repeatedly see stuff like this. Larry's sons should be so ashamed of their big puss dad.

I can clearly see that the Aryan Brothers posting on here are no better than the rioters and looters. Racism goes both ways as we see in downtown Ferguson and as well as posted on Topix.

My point on posting on here is to show that racism and lawlessness is wrong no matter which side of the fence is displaying it.

Want this nonsense to stop, fire the captain in charge of this fiasco and recall the embarrassment of a governor that tries to gain political points from all of this.

The issue of race or racism not just in Ferguson but in Missouri has been long-standing. Integrating the Ferguson Police Department may be a good idea but it is simply a Band-Aid over a larger problem. They need to be steps made to establish relationships between minorities and whites if America intends to try and eliminate these biases they have towards one another. We're living in the 21th- century and still dealing with a attitudes from the 1800s racial perspectives.

Based on some of the comments here I suspected it would hurt for America to have a refresher course in racial relationships. Be advised our hands are not clean as we as Americans have taken this country from the American Indians by way of brutalizing, terrorizing and murdering the original inhabitants of this America.

Gasp ... the demographics of the police force is as follows:
The Ferguson Police Department has 53 total commissioned officers, three of whom are black and two of whom are other minorities; the rest are white, the police chief told the Los Angeles Times. Three of the officers are women and 50 are men.

U can't be a police officer if u have a record.Maybe why there are only 3 blacks in Ferguson..

Common sense will not win the end of the day. The increasingly agenda of the police state is not going away. The ghetto politics that will not end by the chitt stirrers is not going away. The reduction of payments by government to those who feel they are owed will wake many sides up.

A good one way ticket to anywhere else in the world that would take those hating America would be the best solution.

Let's see. Bush had a weekly cartoon about him, several movies and books written against him, a million dollar internet site to bash him on a daily basis, a video game where the object was to kill the figure of Bush, and DumBama is the one with the most hatred, negativity and lies about him????
It seems in your old age, you are becoming myopic and only seeing one side of things. As for myself in my mid 50's, I've never seen a more anti-business President in my lifetime than DumBama. I've also never seen any President divide the country more than DumBama.
Bush & Cheney are international war criminals - clearly they got off WAY too easy.

Obama's economy has been booming - he inherited a horribly failed economy from Bush - and 2 failed wars - has faced the most partisan, hostile, do-nothing Congress in U.S. history and has still done well economically. Facts are not your friend.

The same people want to know why there are so many white elected officials in a mostly black town. How about they were elected. Maybe they should hunt down any black people who can read, and write, and run them for office. This whole situation has proven what happens when the entitled gets hopped up on drugs, and goes shopping for school supplies, TVs, booze, and Air Jordan's. They will use any excuse to destroy. They won't work. They won't build anything themselves. The Government has created a whole segment of worthless society. Then they want to be your neighbors, can't understand why you don't want to mingle.

It appears to me the biggest problem we have is not from enemies from foreign countries but rather the largest problem we have is the ignorance, prejudice and hatred we certainly have demonstrated here that we have.

What an awful legacy of those wonderful, courageous, brilliant people who suffered and died in hopes that the future would be a better place for their children. A sacrifice so many have made even those in the public's eye President John Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy, Medgar Evers, Nobel prize winner Doctor Martin Luther King Jr.. And the nameless because there were so many, only to discover in the 21st century The Same racial hatred and ignorance has simply been reborn.

<quoted text>I would agree that Congress – specifically the GOP-controlled house of Representatives, deserves a worse grade than the current POTUS. In fact – they deserve a FAR worse grade – and that has been consistently reflected in polling of job approval ratings for a few years running.

Obama is not without fault – in fact, in some areas he’s done a poor job. He has not however been anything close to the abject failure his worst critics have accused him of being. Critics who have invented all sorts of absurd falsehoods about him dating back to before he even won the November 2008 election.

I’m an old man now – I’ve seen many presidents come and go over many decades – but I have never seen one enter office with so much hatred, negativity, lies and obstructionist intentions directed at him – from well before the man was ever first sworn into office.

The Obama-haters are not for America - they are just against Obama - at any cost.
You must live in the pink house on Turnip Street in LaLa Land. You should learn how the founding fathers designed the separation of powers to work. Dictatorships were not in the equation.
