Trash gets treated like trash. Most racist Whities do indeed show a great deal of happiness over the death of the late Mr. Brown.
I'm sorry as hell the criminal cop isn't dead, but at least we can put him in jail.
You better have some real hard evidence and proof that officer is guilty of anything at all.
So far it appears ... again ... that the physical evidence and recordings all support the likelyhood that officer Wilson acted in accord with lawful procedure when under physical attack.5667

You mean the class of people what will use anything as an excuse to loot , steal and pillage their own neighborhood ? Blacks are so easy to agitate. Plus they are the only animal's on the face ot the earth that will intentionally ruin their own habitats

Dear you might want to add FOUR more BANGS as there could have been TEN.

Perhaps an inspired songwriter could write a new national anthem?

He died because a shitty fired cop named Darren Wilson used excessive force.

I agree with you. It appears the Ferguson PD let out selective pieces of info to shed an unflattering light on the deceased. A prosecution can't have it both ways - either release ALL of the evidence currently obtained, or release nothing until a full investigation is complete.

Had the official autopsy been released, the family would not have had to obtain a separate coroner's report. To date, the official autopsy results have not been released. The incident report is blank / I've never heard of a blank incident report from an official police shooting. Strange.

I think Tupac said it best, when he said (sound of gunfire) "OUCH, OUCH, OUCH, OUCH"

Yes, it is. The entire handling of this case literally screams corruption. And still, no medical report on this officer as well - not even the name of the suppose hospital he went to. No ballistic reports as to how many shots were discharged, no coroner report, nothing.

And yet many here accept this, solely based on the fact the victim was black, and in their minds deserved to die. How differently they would react were the tables turned on them.

IG, you know me well enough to know I would never condone actions like this, regardless of race. But you analogy of that incident vs. policing throughout the United States are two different issues sir. The proportionality is also something that you should look at as well.

Hope you're having a good day !
