Michael Broan and Trayvon Martin are good tasty chocolate pieces of meat perfect for a barbecue feast and this will calm things down since the economy is lousy anyway.

Has anyone seen that a federal judge is re-visiting the fast and furious issue. Holder should have kept his yap shut about "changes" to be enacted against law enforcement.

The FBI is the best law enforcement agency in the world. I have no problem with the Justice Department and Eric Holder coming to Ferguson. I am confident that when the FBI concludes their investigation the officer will be exonerated, and the truth will show that Officer Wilson was justified in shooting Mike Brown.

I am a republican, and I am white. I have had African American friends for over 40 years. We have stayed at each others' houses, and we have been to each others' churches. Most of the time I was the only white face in the crowd, but I was treated no differently. I have friends who went on to be doctors, lawyers, police officers, school teachers, and I also have two high school friends who went to prison. One is still in there and the other was killed in a drug deal. African Americans are no different than us. It all depends on how they were raised and if they had caring parents. These kids who we have seen rioting in Ferguson are nothing but thugs and hoodlums. They don't care about anyone, not even their own race. The majority of the African American community knows this, and knows that this is a problem their own race has to figure out how to deal with.

One thing we have seen out of these last two weeks is lack of leadership in the African American community and also in the political power structure. The governor of Missouri, the mayor of Ferguson, many state representatives have no idea how to lead in this crisis.

I think law enforcement deserves a lot of credit for how they have handled this. I hope that the African American leaders, after the truth comes out, work with law enforcement going forward because without law enforcement protection, these inner cities would stay war zones like we have been witnessing on the news for the last two weeks.

I would say the token BOA "fine" that was collected was off topic. The topic being police and law enforcement and more regulations on their ability to enforce said laws is spot on.
