No one is getting beat down except sub human thugs and if they'd quit being thugs and get a life no one would beat them down! And as for terrorist I'm not the one pumping propaganda about a poor unarmed teenager being shot to death by a racist rogue cop! That would be you people and the media and you all know it's a lie! Your inciting these riots because this less evolved species is not quite intelligent enough to tell the difference between your lies and the truth. Now the are acting as terrorists in Ferguson
It's not propaganda if it's true.

Sure, every officer is subject to random drug test. The same should be Done for those on welfare.

Wouldn't the residents of Ferguson pay there own property taxes for public services? Who pays your property and business taxes? Why expect Ferguson to be different?
Seeing as though you are the same factless troll who claimed Obama created 20+ miliion jobs and also claimed 15+ million people signed up for Obama care on the final fday of sign ups, Im not surprised you dont understand my post.

Point is, NONE of these looters and rioters are paying to fix this. The cops arent fixing the buildings, nor are the National Guard. The business owners and the (evil) insurance companies are going to pay for this. JUSTICE INDEED (meaning they are hurting local business owners, not the people/organization they are "rebelling" against).

None of which have anything to do with paying taxes.

Are you suggesting that tax money goes to rebuild and establish new/existing private businesses? That would be par for the course with you seeing as though nothing you say makes sense or is true but you go ahead and continue to spread obvious lies and misinformation.... TROLL ON!

The shots are concurrent when being charged or attacked. Not from 30 feet away with back to officer and hands up. For instance the last two presumable shots. One to the eye and top of head.
It's pretty easy to understand.
The "witnesses" that are saying other wise. I don't believe they actually saw the incident. May have heard the shots then noticed a man down.
A 6'5 300 pound man has to be handled different than someone small. Sometimes with a show of force. Sorry it's true.
When he robbed the store he gave a up basic rights. Not worthy of being shot but placed himself in a bad situation. I would say the officer knew about a perps description.
The audio and video on the dashboard camera will tell more.
It's a shame race and class are playing a part in this. Obey the law or suffer the consequences. The ppl of Ferguson are making themselves out to be outlaws and vandals. Now others shot and more violence.
Black panthers are looking like a terrorist group. Saying to kill someone and the facts aren't even there.

Folks on welfare do not have weapons with the ability to fire six shots at an unarmed man.

Cops have that weaponry.

OMG, you are too naive. People on welfare have the best weapons of all. They steal them. They use them to hold up other people, and to practice on every week end in Chicago. People on welfare sell drugs too. You didn't know that did you? Read a paper some time. In fact read the Chicago Sun Times Thursday through Sunday. They report all the drive bys. As far as Ferguson is concerned those people are burning, and looting liquor stores, and Wal Marts for school supplies, and shoe stores for Air Jordan's. Their children will be the best dressed in the country.

The cowardly Governor thinks there won't be any peace until the officer is prosecuted? Really? Even if he is innocent, Governor? Is he a Democrat, or a demented Republican? Whatever he is, brains are not something the Governor has to worry about. The officer did his job. He removed a cancer from the streets of Ferguson. The hopped up gangbanger can no longer hurt anyone.

Most of these criminals on the streets of Ferguson are not from Ferguson. Did you see what the crazy Governor had to say about prosecuting the officer? He is not the last word, the Grand Jury is, and they will likely exonerate the officer since he was doing his job, removing a threat to the community.

Dear, everyone (read that word again) on welfare does not own a gun.

Every cop (read those two words again) has a gun.

Next you will be squacking that all folks on welfare have tanks.

I am mentally ill, and not allowed to own a gun, or anything related to a gun, including the bullets either! WHAT AM I SUPPOSED To Do Now?! just WHAT THE HELL AM I SUPPOSED To Do Now, if I'm not legally able, to own a gun, or anything related, to own a gun, by law, because I am mentally ill?! yikes! that goes for owning the bullets, too.

You are absolutely correct... We (not law enforcement) are checked at least once a year. Failing the drug test means "fired"... The taxes that we pay provide welfare... Welfare people should be tested...
