Embarrassed ? You must be joking. Or stupid.

The looters are ghetto folk, the violent protesters ghetto folk and white neo-liberals.

How is that asking for calm and peace after the verdict from Brown's family?

Guessing you have not visited Harlem. I have seen this many times - adolescents leaving school, for example. As is commonly known around here. They know the police cannot do anything serious given their ages.

Yes, they often get arrested, or taken to the station in any case. Morningside Avenue is basically a side show at 3 PM on some days.

If Michael Brown had killed the cop, he would have been convicted of 1st degree murder and placed on death row.

The OJ case wasn't clear cut. OJ had an alibi and could not be placed at the scene of the crime. It's highly unlikely that he did the killing and far more likely that he hired a hit-man. This probably explains why the glove did not fit.

Yup, and the example is Christopher Matlosz, whom very few have ever heard of.

The step-"father" sure didn't. The NYT has him on video screaming "burn that ***** down!!"

It's amazing that someone who believes that OJ was innocent condescends to rolls her eyes at anyone.

What a waste of time, protesting over something that happened nowhere near NYC.

Mr. Faceplant was a black thug though, not a black teen. Don't insult the millions of good teens in this country who just happen to also be black in such a manner.

FYI, I call him Mr. Faceplant because that picture of his formerly thuggish dead flesh bag faceplanted on the street is pure awesome.
