I don't know, but completely innocent unarmed white people (as well as blacks) are gunned down every day and it's mostly blacks doing such shooting. Just in the last two days two very young children were killed by random gunfire in just DC and Baltimore alone.

3-year-old girl in Baltimore is fatally shot - The Washington Post

Fatal shooting of 3-year-old girl in Landover may have resulted from a fight over clothes - The Washington Post

Where is the uproar? Maybe the community can burn down their local stores and loot local businesses and wonder why nobody wants to do business there. It's white people's fault.

I'm sick of this racial card crap. I'm white, but I came from a VERY poor family and grew up in a 95% black inner city neighborhood. People need to stop feeling sorry for themselves and stop blaming white people for all their problems. And all my black friends would agree with me. And they are older and actually went through a hell of a lot more racism issues than the current young black population deals with.

I don't know what really happened in North County, StL, but yes, it's a travesty for all involved. But people don't have to act like they are acting and using the "cop shot a black kid" as an excuse. If all the hated cops just left Ferguson what would happen? The city would become completely unsafe instantaneously and you would have shootings and looting every single day for no reason at all.

Whatever. I've said enough on this topic....

Why whenever the black community gets upset about something, it involves rioting and looting? This just reinforces stereotypes of the culture - If the black community believes this young mans death was due to excessive use of force by the cop, demand an investigation. Having the locals get out their shopping lists and completely pillage the local merchants, burn buildings, riot and threaten to kill cops, definitely does not help their credibility.

Demand an investigation? So the cop will get a slap on the wrist like in the case of Oscar Grant? Or a not guilty verdict like the case of Trayvon Martin?

It's disgusting to me that an 18-year-old kid was MURDERED, and your main concern is a burning gas station.

Ferguson's contracts deploy half the number of officers that county or self-patrol cities do, and they bridge patrols (so officers might patrol two or more cities).

I am mentioning all of this so you understand that the Ferguson department is there first and foremost to make money. When you think about that, you understand why they have no cameras in their cruisers. (And I can almost guarantee you the cameras that they purchased, but have not installed, were bought with grant money. Hence why they were not installed.)


all those neighborhood police depts should be disbanded they are shakedown artists wearing uniforms

And now they're opportunistically attacking the Galleria Mall!?

Give me a break.

bull i have read stories where whites have pointed guns at cops and nothing happened to them and when was the last time you saw a black cop shoot a unarmed black teenager or better yet a unarmed white person? next question why is it always white cop shooting unarmed black person.plus we know the white lie is" i was scared" or if you a cop "he went for my gun"
