Mike Brown was an animal. I understand the black community has issues, but putting some criminal up on a platform and expecting everyone to listen is laughable. A criminal is a criminal.

So after destroying the city, we now have an oooops moment! Nice! All of the marchers can rest now and wait for the next opportunity to restock.

A lot of hard working honest people including many Blacks, lost their businesses from the fires, looting, and general anarchy brought on by the rioting and violence. Where is the outrage about that? Where is the Presidential investigation about that? Where is the investigation of their civil rights? Where is Al Sharpton and that idiot legislator from the Missouri Senate? Where is the pointless US Media?

Hypocracy at it's finest.

Not surprised. The investigation was only done for political purposes and to try to calm people down.

How embarrassing for race hustlers Sharpton, Obama, and Holder. They were so cocksure that Officer Darren Wilson was guilty of something, but not even they could deny the facts of the case.

'Civil rights leaders' need to stop elevating thugs such as Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin into hero status. Mainstream America [and the rest of the world] can't take them seriously when they do that.

Nah, not embarrassing at all.

It was done at the time to make people feel like "justice would be done".
It was a political move to calm the masses.

Most knew that no charges would be brought up.

Agreed, but make sure to specify it was to appease the black people, not most other people in general. Despite the liberal medias best efforts, most people did not fall for the false narrative created by the media like they did for the Martin/Zimmerman incident.
This despite the koolaid drinkers who continue to perpetuate the false narrative of "hands up, don't shoot".

The size of the turn-out, with arsonists and looters coming from all over the country, gives us a great insight as to the values that are so commonly held by so many members of that community. Virtually, every other culture in the world takes a very dim view of criminality. So, yeah..., I'd say they have some issues...

"Calm the masses". Jesus I must have been in fairyland or something.

I was sure they were calling for massive civil disobedience which led to the loss of millions of dollars in income for law abiding citizens, destroyed the career of a police officer and devastated an otherwise likable community.

In reality the old snake oil salesmen selling poison off the back of the wagon were not much worse than these mongers of racial hatred banging that tattered ole drum about "da man" .

And it wasn't just the usual suspect snake oil salesmen...it was also the family of MB urging the crowd to "burn this mother down".
