Okay everyone this is what I dislike about posting!!!!!!!

This post wasn't created to ruffle anyone's feathers but I see a few are ruffled. I thought the subject was closed but since I started this post I will end it by saying: This is a human story based on how I feel. My source of information is CNN....I follow it vigorously. I find the reporting of Don Lemon, Erin Burnette, Wolf Blitzer, Anderson Cooper and many more are excellent. You can't argue how someone feels and I am saying I feel a sense of sadness for the people of Ferguson; but not to say I don't feel sad for other states or our own problems here at home; but I posted this story about the Brown Family because it is one of interest and I have followed this story since August. This story has lots of elements of raw emotion, distrust, racial profiling, injustice, heartfelt empathy for loss of life and the list goes on. As we all know law enforcement are there and here to serve and protect; however, they must be watchful on their on safety too. The police are in a tough situation and make decisions based on safety of the people first, but they have to consider their own safety too. The bottom line is I wasn't there, I am going by what the reporters say and since CNN have a capable team I see and hear the evidence. Most of us would offer our sympathy and would hope that things will change for the better.  Violence certainly isn't going to serve any good purpose but just do more damage. We all know there is evil in the world but I am merely giving how I feel about the situation, there is nothing wrong with how one feels....we are human and we feel something and I feel for them as I do anywhere in the world but this is the story I put up so why knock it just put your own thoughts on it. This post is not a competition to see who puts better responses....you're taking away from the human side of this.  I feel for the people of Missouri and the side I am on is the "TRUTH." 
TRUTH? How about a little fantasy....?

Imagine, if you will. all the protesters - after ther verdict was read - silently walking back to their homes (in protest) and leaving the police and national guard standing there in the streets with their mouths agape wondering what just happened?

But no, they (the "protesters") had to react like a bunch of animals reinforcing what the police are accused of treating them as. Go figure.

TRUTH is this kid was a 7' 300lb punk who had just robbed a liquor store and threatened the significantly smaller owner with his overwhelming body size, punched/assaulted a cop and I don't doubt the cop feared for his life. I would have too in the heat of the moment.

And don't even get me started on the major new networks like cnn and fox, etc.... they are over-reacting, fear mongering, quick to report wrongly before the facts are in, teleprompter-reading talking heads.

That's MY say on the matter. I'm sure star will have more to add. :lol:
Wow another person that followed the correct news. I too saw that video of Micheal Brown robbing that store and brutalizing the small shop keeper. But those that watch CNN, MSMBC, CBS and ABc will never see that news story because these "news" outlets don't report the news. They report a slanted and disinformation segment, that bends to their political needs. I suggest people really interested in the facts of this case research it. Begin with the video of what Micheal Brown did in that store, to that clerk. Everyone is allowed their own personal feelings, but its statements made without full knowledge that continue to serve a lie and not the truth. I told Star this subject was now closed for me, but misinformation in this sense equals injustice and must be addressed. Please remember everybody is allowed to believe what they want. It is sad, that even in being allowed to voice our opinions even they can be wrong. To voice an opinion on a current issue it is important to have all the facts, other wise you run the risk of turning a lie into "truth" and passing that "truth" along. And in the end the lie is truth and truth is never heard. I value your friendship, but with respect disagree with your statements.

WOW I am glad that I am not an American as there is so much hatred there, yes we are fully aware of what he is like and how he did it, but like I said, there are better ways to deal with it instead of killing him.

My last comment for this thread.
It is offensive to me Star for you to equate hatred with the word American. I expressed no hatred, but the suggestion that before a comment is made concerning current affairs, that the facts are researched.I am truly disappointed in your response but not surprised. No matter, it is time to end this discussion, because I have indeed hit a "blank" wall.
