Taking a crap on a POS. How fitting.

Also. None of you know exactly what happened.
We do know for sure that even the Department of Justice studied this case and all the forensics and ruled that the officer was correct in his actions. We do know from video exactly what he did at the store. Not exactly an upstanding citizen deserving of recognition.

"He left an afterglow of smiles when life was done." I don't think that the Asian store owner that he stole from, and whose shop the mob then looted and burned, is smiling. I don't think that the police officer whose gun Michael Brown grappled over, probably with the intention of shooting the cop, whose life has now been ruined, is smiling.

Disgusting that any plaques of the Ten Commandments are removed from government property, but this waste of marble gets to be put up.

While I am not sure if it is necessary or appropriate, I must observe that none of you live in Ferguson and your taxes did not pay for the plaque or road maintenance. The mayor approved it as a compromise to remove the impromptu memorial, which was prohibited from being removed per an injunction (assuming what I read was correct). Sounds reasonable to me.

No doubt it will be watched over for a while, as it would be an embarrassment to the City if it were stolen. However, unless a metal cage is built around it I don't think it will last a year. Real gold or not, it is valuable property that could fetch a good price, and it is sitting in the street in a poor area.

You sure knew and argued all the facts when it was going on. Eric Holders DOJ did a complete and thorough investigation. The DOJ should know ALL the facts and ZERO charges were filed against the cop. I'm sure they tried really hard to find some fault but it lies all on MB.

Burned out buildings to a hard working community is his legacy.

Exactly? No.

A really, really good idea? Yes.

Brown was a thug.
You all need to stop watching MSM TV. The Revolution will not be televised.



Who would pay for advertising??

No you wouldn't.
As I said in the rep I gave him - not the same words but close...
I'd stand watch while he squatted if he did the same for me...
The fact that this T-H-U-G is getting 'honored' is just plain out and out stupid.

I don't live in Ferguson, but this makes me ashamed to live in St. Louis.
Since you're closer than me or ATG5 who also wants to crap on it, will you do that for us please?
