The useful idiots make all sorts of excuses to justify this behavior.

Baltimore Police who unlawfully killed man after unlawfully arresting him are themselves arrested.

The same useful idiots are outraged.

This.

One problem, not all of the victims I used were black. So I ask again, why were there no riots over those people?

Here's where I'm going with this line of thought, I fully believe we're coming very close if not already in a police state where the ends justify the means.

Forfeiture of property charge or not,warrantless searches, no knock warrants,tech that can see inside houses without the knowledge of those inside and finally the militarization of our local P.D.'s etc. etc. etc.

Why is it time after time only one group riots and burns down their own neighborhood over the death of a "questionable" person instead of a mere baby,father,daughter,husband who've done not one damn thing wrong?

I'm at a loss as to the answer.

It may just be me but I would think that the situations I list and the hundreds more I haven't would be something to protest over and yet...

The Police Apologists are the ones making the case for a Police State. If Police are not going to be accountable for any illegal actions or killing people, it is a Police State. If Police ignore the Law and make up their own Laws, there is no reason for the average Citizen to obey any law they choose not to obey.

I agree with what you've said <bold> my contention is that we ought to wait for the cops to be at least convicted in a court before convicting/sentencing them (on here).

The other thing is there are many,many more police actions that are more egregious to protest over than Freddie's death, not that I mean his death is insignificant by any means but if compared to a baby,child,totally innocent person just sleeping in their house... Well, you get the idea.

The DA WAYYY overcharged, most of the charges will be tossed out or reduced, as they should be.
Another bad guy off the streets, too bad the cops got caught up in comrade obama's plot to destroy America...

Seems charges where not "tossed out" and looks as one was reduced. Kind of takes care of a lot of theories that this would happen. Looks like the knife was not a switchblade either, since the charges of "False Arrest" stayed.

Still has to go to Court, but not a good start for the ones being charged to have the Grand Jury Indict on that many charges to start with.

It appears that Mosby is backpedaling on the knife and claiming he was arrested before they found the knife.

Regardless, if a black man is murdered by black cops, in a city with a black mayor, in a country with a black president, that is supposed to justify it? Your logic is hurting my brain.

No, It appears that it was not a switchblade, since its the same charge as before. False Arrest. Same Charge as the original one.

If it was as you say, that would have been thrown out by the Grand Jury, since the only witness to that is dead, and the Cops claim they arrested him for the knife, so that kind of blows your theory out the window. .
