I doubt the cop would shoot someone unless there was a valid reason. I don't think this was the cops first day on the job.

Shooting someone is serious and most likely something happened that these witnesses aren't saying. Maybe, the witnesses are racist. I read that the cop had swelling on his head. You don't get swelling on your head without some kind of altercation.

Let' s show remorse for Micheal Brown the young teen shot and as for the looting that resulted is a red flag of a behavior that will inevitably explode into marshall law
predicted in the collase of the US economy in 2015. The looters are simply fools
having NOTHING to do with Micheal or ANY interest in the overwehelming sorrow of
his parents, family ad friends. I suggest becoming ready to protect property and especially food as this isolated looting is serious but merely a precurser to a looting of our nations businesses, homes and violence on individuals carrying anything of value for
the condition ( money NOT being of any value) This is a taste albeit a social sampling and I hate that Micheal became the test case for two senario's I sadly report. My opinion
may not be shared or grasped and I welcome any dialog whether you get my point or
not. Again it is too early to arrve at a judgement on The Micheal Brown nor would I be
qualified. I only will say that we have an extremely tolerant black community and living
in the spirit of Martin Luther King who I loved deeply in my soul. Those looters do not
represent the greater population of whites and blacks, but seek an opportunity to steal
that which is not theirs!

That being said we need more Asian people in this country.

Asians commit violent crimes at about one quarter the white rate


Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks commit 85 percent and whites commit 15 percent.

  • Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks. Forty-five percent of their victims are white, 43 percent are black, and 10 percent are Hispanic. When whites commit violent crime, only three percent of their victims are black.
  • Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.
  • Blacks are 2.25 times more likely to commit officially-designated hate crimes against whites than vice versa


There is a valid reason why police stop black males.

I don't care how valid you think the reason is. The reason I don't care because at the end of the day, this is my perspective: If I'm obeying the law, leave me alone. If I have not presented any reason to be pulled over, leave me alone. If being Black is considered a reason to pull me over, that is a violation of my constitutional rights. It is the part of about search and seizure. What I do as a law-abiding citizen is MY responsibility. And what thugs who happen to be Black do is their responsibility. Let what they do stick to them and leave me alone.

Again, come up with a reason why I should be profiled that is related to ME.

and they run into white folks who will lock them up for yelling at some racist fool too while letting the white boy slide for doing dirt.

I'm trying to make sense of the official story, but I can't.



you know the lies he had on sagging jeans, listened to rap, and wore a baseball cap backwards so according to a ton of white folks he should be excuted
