It's not surprising that someone who is a professional lapdog masquerading as a journalist doesn't put a lot of thought into anything he does.

That's a deliberate choice. The story is going to be about the protest instead of that abortion of a press conference.

And purposely risk lives? I don't know if I can believe that. But if true, those responsible should be punished.

I don't think the lives of black people are the top concern of St. Louis County.

And that's exactly what's happening.

It reinforces the helpful narrative that that's just how those people are.

Christ, Wilson even testified that Brown's hands were up when he shot him. But he said he "looked like a demon" so I guess why even have a trial at this point?

On cue, Fox is blaming Al Sharpton for the riots.

Here is a considered take from a privileged white Australian man

The new racism: this time the villains are not white

It's cute because he still doesn't know what racism means, at least judging by the article title.

Yeah, that's a nice piece of Australian conservatism for you.

I hope their law enforcement is under intense scrutiny now. Most importantly vest badges should be implemented.
Most reasonable reaction in the last couple of pages. I hope to God that some of the people that post here are never actually on a jury. Having been a juror a couple of times, it really changed my perspective on how I view these high profile cases that make the news. I try not to make judgement because I wasn't at the scene of the incident and I wasn't in the courthouse hearing the evidence. From day one, the OP and others tried and convicted the officer with little to no evidence other than the initial second hand reports and so called "witness accounts." Mob mentality at it's finest.

Maybe that statement was objected to. Hard to tell. Want there for any of it so I'm reserving my opinion. I am disappointed with the destruction of small businesses and the people looting with apparent glee.
