The Prosecutor will insure the truth prevails, and Officer Wilson will be exonerated. Since he won't be hung from a nearby tree the burners, and looters will return to resupply the booze cabinets, the school supplies, and those new Air Jordan's.
In a few months the loot will be long gone, anything not consumed will be sold or pawned for drugs.

Once exonerated officer Wilson should be awarded a medal for doing his job and then move to an area in the USA where there are no blacks to demonstrate and loot: Wyoming. Montana, Ely Minnesota, Apostle Islands etc...

Somewhere where his professionalism will be appreciated.

All he did was to defend himself, and others, from a person who must have been on drugs or somehow out of control. Forget Brown's age, he was 300 pounds and 6'5" and had just attacked a store clerk which pretty much means he was NOT a gentle giant but just a MEAN GIANT.

Blacks continue to "use" Obama to abuse the Government law enforcement while they do their jobs.

Once Obama is gone from power blacks will settle back in to reality of obeying the law and not making a big stink when one of their's is shot while commiting criminal acts.

They don't seem to mind if they do the shooting. 99% of the blacks murdered in the U S are killed by other blacks.

Holder could care less - this is him taking advantage of a crisis and he is right change is coming him and the clown in charge will be gone from office in about two years - thank goodness something to look forward to when these not ready for prime time players leave the stage.

With this government, you can NEVER persuade Iranina-people and North-Korean-people that
"Your government is a dictatorship!!!"

You are building a Soviet-Union!!!!!
You are making a mistake!!!

CAUTION!
NEXT, your government will build "The Gulag Archipelago " in Arctic or Siberia!!!
Your government is becoming a Soviet-Union!

Concentration camp
http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Concentratio...
Prison camps had been in use in Russia for many years, especially in places in the Arctic or Siberia, a long way from any cities.
From the 1920's under the Soviet Union many more people were sent to such camps and they were very badly treated there.
One might still die there, but would most likely be used for work first.
That is called a labour camp. These camps are sometimes called gulags, the Russian name for them.
Anyone who was seen as a threat to the government was sent there.
In 1939, there were about 1,300,000 people working as slaves in these camps.
The Russian writer Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn wrote a book called The Gulag Archipelago by which many people realized what crimes the communist Soviet Union government had done.

The Gulag Archipelago
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Gulag_Archip...
The Gulag Archipelago is a book by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn about the Soviet forced labour camp system.

American-Military-Industry is the cause of this tragedy!!!
And, of course, Wall-Street is behind this!!!
(Wall-Treet loves Military-Industry in order to raise American-stock-prices!!!)

American-99% must rise now!
American-99% must anger now!

We are American-99%!
Now is the time for change!

This is Democracy!
We American-99% will protect our America and Democracy!

American-Military-Industry, American-Generals, Wall-Street, politicians and American-top1% are the cause of this tragedy!

American-99% must rise now!
American-99% must anger now!

We are American-99%!

Ferguson Police's Show of Force Highlights Militarization of America's Cops
http://abcnews.go.com/US/ferguson-police-smal...
The response of the Ferguson and St. Louis County police to the protests has highlighted a growing trend in policing in the United States: police SWAT teams look increasingly like military forces, using military-grade equipment and justifying that use by noting that the public has increasingly-sophisticated weapons themselves.

[The Wire]Aug 13, 2014
The Pentagon Gave the Ferguson Police Department Military-Grade Weapons
http://www.thewire.com/national/2014/08/the-p...
According to a report by David Mastio and Kelsey Rupp of USA Today, the Ferguson Police Department is the beneficiary of a Department of Defense program called 1033, which redistributes surplus military equipment to civilian police forces across the U.S.

Continuing their violent rampage and non-blacks are going to shoot them too.
With obama doing everything wrong, destroying the middle-class and his Administration going out of their way to find some civil rights violation, instead of seeing the kid as he really was.

It must take a real low IQ to riot over a 2 bit thief who fights with the cops and use that as a National Example of how blacks are mistreated in society. Most Americans are smarter than that and tired of seeing social misfits put above those who try in life.

It's laughable. The quick actions of obama, holder, sharpton and the rest of them looking for 'injustice',then finding out their poster boy just robbed a store. Haa Haa Somehow I don't think your going to convince a less violent and more civilized society that it's something different than it is.

Typical stupidity from an unpatriotic racist tea-bagger… last time I checked President Obama wasn’t in Office when the LA riots happened. The only settling in that will happen is racist right-wing republican whites settling into the fact that they are the new minority and that they DO NOT get their country back, LOL!
As for (former) Officer Wilson, all account points to him being shaken to the core over what he did, the reaction by the Ferguson community and the multiple investigations, especially the one by the DOJ. This was a bad shoot plain and simple, that is why in one of those cell phone videos you can see him pacing back and forth looking at the scene wondering how he was going to explain this. His life as a law enforcement officer is over, the only question now is, is his life as a free man over. He killed that unarmed teenager, and you racist right-wing idiots can celebrate that all you want but those riots, those police man hours, those investigations and the payout to the Brown family will cost billions in taxpayers dollars.
So keep on celebrating you Taxed Enough Already-idiots, let’s see how much more in taxes this is going to cost all of us.

Marine Corp....you won. You won decades ago. Officer Wilson is a result of your progressive politics. Thousands of laws passed to acclimate the peon taxpayer as a now 21 first century slave to pay for those who have been done wronged who never have been done wronged. Look at the protestors in real terms. they are not looking destitute and sad looking faces with fear in them. We live in a 21st century American joke. Ten million male felons and two and a half million in prison. We need real talks on ending this insane blame someone else for others perceived problems while the elitists and their puppets and their minions are paid off for it.
