The thugs of Ferguson have shown how absolutely uneducated they are. As I have stated before, it is my opinion that Black people are inherently violent. They have certainly shown it tonight. How proud they must be of their recklessness tonight. Don’t these people understand how stupid they look? Their actions have done NOTHING to advance the race.
A Missouri grand jury has decided not to indict Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson in the August 9 shooting death of Michael Brown, St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch said Monday night.
As usual, the Ferguson police looked ridiculous as they swarmed the streets in full riot gear, itself crowd provoking. When are they going to learn that the way to work with the people of Ferguson is not to appear in provocative, militaristic garb?
It’s a bold statement, republicans are racist. Their unyielding lack of cooperation with the president, their position on immigration and their continuous sexist statements about women are clear examples of their racism. They spew lies and misinformation about these subjects. Unfortunately, the American citizenry eats it up because they have no other avenue for opposing ideas.
The conservatives control most of the radio stations by way of clear channel and other mega media corporations. When was the last time you heard a progressive talk show on radio? Rush is found all over the radio spectrum. Something that has made him a multimillionaire many time over.
It’s sad that the Grand Old Party has become the racist old party.
Oath Keepers has been warning about the militarization of police departments for quite a while. It’s nice that others are seeing the problem, too. – Shorty Dawkins, Associate Editor
The war on terror has essentially turned police into occupying armies in some American communities, said a police and criminology expert.
Thomas Nolan, an associate professor of criminology at Merrimack College and former senior policy analyst with the Department of Homeland Security, said the focus of police work had shifted greatly since he was a Boston police officer in the 1980s and 1990s.
“I remember it being drilled into me as a police officer, as a sergeant and then as a lieutenant: partnership, problem-solving, and prevention – the three Ps,” Nolan said Wednesday during a panel sponsored by the American Constitution Society.
He said police were heavily trained to form alliances to help them to better serve and protect communities, and he said those relationships clearly don’t exist in Ferguson, Missouri.
While the war on drugs is frequently cited as a major factor in the breakdown of civil liberties and police-community relations, Nolan said a more recent shift was largely to blame.
“In the early 2000s, particularly after 9/11, we saw a paradigm shift from community policing and problem-oriented principles to the war on terror, and we became Homeland Security police,” said Nolan, who has worked in the federal agency’s Office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties. [FULL STORY]
The Ferguson, Missouri cops look like little boys trying to play Army. Their bullying tactics are disgusting. I hope the Federal Dept. of Justice can somehow get these Cops in order. Their response to seemingly harmless activity by the crowd is so disjointed that it’s almost laughable.
The Ferguson Police should be ashamed of their racist performance. When is it OK to point loaded automatic rifles at American citizens? Is this Communist China or North Korea? The world is watching and looking in amazement as the Police use stun bombs, Police dogs, rubber bullets and tear gas against an unarmed citizenry.
