Do you trust Fox? Basically the identical interview as NPR. Attacking the news source is incredibly lame. Try doing some research.

I really don't care that this guy protested.

I just find it all sadly ironic as people protest something and it's not even a great example of the (very real) issue at hand while they're blindly herded towards what events they should and should not get upset about due to political allegiances.

Ferguson would never have become a big deal if it had happened in Chicago, LA, NY etc.

It was only allowed and encouraged because it wasn't a big city with powerful connections able to deflect and call about political alliances in groups like the NAACP and various black politicians to help calm down the situation.

People like the protester are well intentioned sheep, herded away from some areas and allowed to graze where the shepherd wants.

It helps to be dissenting about something real.

Someone missed the surveillance video of the "Gentle Giant" chesting up the shop owner who confronted him for shoplifting.

"Minding his own business," my asinine.

Educate yourself.

Stop it.

There's a time and place for dissent, and it's NOT at a host country, after you were awarded a medal, and during the playing of your own damn national anthem.

You must not be familiar with world history. If other countries, with their atrocities going back decades, haven't had THEIR participants do this, ours sure shouldn't be.

They're not protesting. They're engaging in more self-indulgent outrage on a world stage--and their laughingstocks, to boot.

He is free to state his displeasure with America if he wants.

Wasn't he the one who robbed a convenience store with his buddy and then attacked the unlucky police officer who showed up to deal with his knuckleheaded butt? (that turned out to be not very smart!)

Then this happened:
