Re: “Rallies scheduled for tonight, Wednesday to show solidarity with Ferguson protesters

"citing a disreputable source"

2 + 2 = 4 even when Hitler says it.

We'll see if it adds up. The truth will out.

Re: “CNN presents Awkward Black History Moment

Oh please, Wesley. I agree that Buzzfeed is generally fucking terrible and that it is part of a whole assortment of problems, but a snarky reposting of a news report certainly isn't one of them.

Also, those treating water cannons as though they are a brutality free form of crowd control should discuss the matter with those who have been documented as having been blinded or injured by them. You can do a bit of googling if you want to see a photo of a man's eye out of its socket, but I don't blame you if you don't.

Re: “End police militarization now

Citizens need to be able to complain to a civilian group about police. Bad actors in the police need to be identified and there problems corrected or be dismissed. Police hurt more innocent people by far than police are injured by citizens. Dunwoody's acting city manager is the police chief.In traffic court the judges almost always believe the police yet there are police who regularly commit perjury. The AG's office should take the lead in seeing the police are regulated.If we can regulate manicurists , why not regulate police? We have a lot of places to complain about businesses but those who carry guns and can ruin innocent lives are left to their own self management.

Re: “Rallies scheduled for tonight, Wednesday to show solidarity with Ferguson protesters

@Mark
IF the story is confirmed are you will to admit the rush to judgement was wrong? Or will cognitive dissonance take over and the argument will shift?
Let's see how this shakes out but it may reveal more about both sides than many are willing or able to accept.

Re: “CNN presents Awkward Black History Moment

Buzzfeed, huh? That explains a lot.

I don't suppose it would be helpful to explain to the author that riot squads in Australia use water cannons for non-lethal crowd dispersal?

As long as we can all be outraged by what would seem to be a common sense suggestion in some other part of the world, then this journalist/Buzzfeed reposter has done his job of stirring up anger and resentment for no reason. Congrats! You're part of the problem!

BREAKING REPORT: Officer Darren Wilson Suffered “Orbital Blowout Fracture to Eye Socket” During Mike Brown Attack

August 19, 2014

The Gate way Pundit can now confirm from two local St. Louis medical sources that police Officer Darren Wilson suffered facial fractures during his confrontation with deceased 18 year-old Michael Brown. Officer Wilson clearly feared for his life during the incident that led to the shooting death of Brown. This was after Michael Brown and his accomplice Dorian Johnson robbed a local Ferguson convenience store.

Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.” This comes from a source within the Prosecuting Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis County Police.

A blowout fracture is a fracture of one or more of the bones surrounding the eye and is commonly referred to as an orbital floor fracture. (AAPOS)

This comes after St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter tweeted out last night that a dozen local witnesses who live in Michael Brown's neighborhood confirmed Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson’s version of the Brown shooting story.

Officer Darren Wilson left the state of Missouri last week.

Re: “Rallies scheduled for tonight, Wednesday to show solidarity with Ferguson protesters

"Again chill, does convicting a cop to the death penalty before all the facts are in make up for past injustices?"

Who has convicted the cop of anything? This community is asking for an investigation and charges brought. THAT is not a death penalty conviction. There is no need to obfuscate the issue.

Re: “Rallies scheduled for tonight, Wednesday to show solidarity with Ferguson protesters

Stupidity should really be punishable by flaying. Stupid Troll is stupid, and no one has time for your crap.

There's nothing that can be done for you. If a white teenager had been shot six times, the whole of white people would be up in arms.

But because the teenager was black, therefore making him a "thug" by virtue of his skin color, he deserves to die?

Regardless as to what asinine logic has led you to this point, the fact that you can sympathize easier with the cop than a dead child says a lot about you. Mostly that you are a clueless piece of crap.

White people have massacred movie theaters, schools, malls, and literally every where else that counts as a public place. Why do they get to be led away alive while this kid who is accused of stealing cigars from a store deserves to be shot dead on the street?

Take a stadium of seats and think about your life and choices.

It does appear that it is the land civil rights forgot, but whose fault is that? Certainly not the cops.

Re: “Rallies scheduled for tonight, Wednesday to show solidarity with Ferguson protesters

And one more thing The Truth -- The African American community has had enough of living in a police state so they began a voter registration drive... what did the State GOP leadership say about that?

The head of the Missouri Republican Party said Tuesday that efforts to register voters in Ferguson, Missouri, were “disgusting” and unhelpful. “If that’s not fanning the political flames, I don’t know what is, I think it’s not only disgusting but completely inappropriate.”

Sure does sound like the good old days of Apratheid.

Re: “Rallies scheduled for tonight, Wednesday to show solidarity with Ferguson protesters

The Truth -- You need to do some research on how the people of Ferguson have been treated by their local police for years. You will read of systematic abuse heaped on a population because of race.
