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.
