    Default Ferguson, MO Police Kill Unarmed Black Teen...Nation on Fire

    Ferguson, Missouri Police shot and killed 18 year old Michael Brown On Saturday August, 9, 2014, on his way to his grandmother's house. Again...we have a another young Black Man cut down at his prime. WHERE ARE MY CONSERVATIVES?

    Another Innocent American Civilian has been cut down. WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE?

    I hear so-called Conservatives speak so poetically about somehow obtaining the mysterious, BLACK VOTE. You want it? Start addressing BLACK ISSUES! Find the root of the problem and weed it out.

    I am upset at this shooting but not surprised. No Black American is surprised. Just the other week Eric Garner was killed by the NYPD after being put in a choke hold. They let him die in the street, THEN acted like he was alive when they wheeled him off in the ambulance. WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE?

    Many of you THINK this doesn't affect you but JUST WAIT. It won't impact you until young White Boys and Girls are targets for this sort of police behavior. It's coming though.

    How do we address this issue so that it never happens again?

    This is the Fox News Article written on August 10, 2014

    "An eyewitness told the Post-Dispatch that she saw a police officer attempting to put Brown in the back of a squad car shortly before the shooting. As Brown attempted to flee, the witness said he was shot several times in the head and chest."

    Is this acceptable to shoot an unarmed fleeing suspect, assuming the eyewitness account is accurate?

    No the nation is not on fire.

    Is it asking too much to wait till we have some actual details before we all march on St. Louis?

    It seems the "eye witness" story is to say the least incomplete.

    According to USA Today, the shooting was the result of an altercation between an officer and two young men, one being the "victim" who assaulted the officer, pushed him into the car, attempted to seize the officer's weapon.

    One shot fired inside the car and more following.

    Sadly, some of the local troublemakers are using it as an excuse to destroy property and loot.

    So, from this, the implication is the suspect was not handcuffed before the officer tried to place him in the squad car? hmmm... more info needed...

    There's a lot more details here in this story from CNN.com.

    When most young black men are shot, killed, arrested, imprisoned in liberal run cities with liberal run police forces and liberal stacked courts how is this a conservative problem? They made their bed voting for Democrats they can lay in it.

    No, you have it backwards.

    According to the story the cop was trying to exit the vehicle when he was assaulted by the two young men and shoved back into the car at which time there was a struggle for his gun with one of them.

    One shot fired inside the car, more fired once he exited the car.

    I'm going to be a crazy right winger here and suggest that maybe before we riot we wait till the details of just what happened become clear.

    "..there was a scuffle inside the car over the officer's gun..." The story is not making sense so far; more information is needed.

    Stores are being vandalized and looting is going on. This is from a St Louis TV station.

    Ferguson, Missouri (KMOV.com) – What started as a peaceful prayer vigil Saturday evening to remember a young man gunned down by police, has escalated into full scale riots and looting in Ferguson, Missouri.Angry mobs have smashed windows, set fires and looted businesses as a massive showing of police, some wearing riot gear have moved into the area along West Florissant just south of 270.

    Again, read all the words.

    The officer was shoved back into his car when he tried to exit by two men outside of his car.

    There was then a struggle for his gun inside the car and one shot fired.

    Apparently at that point the "victim" got outside of the car and the officer shot him.

    Do we know this to be the fact, considering there are contradicting stories? Where was the starting point? The story is still not making sense. More information is needed.

    From what I read there's also been over twenty police cars vandalized with broken windows etc.

    I guess it's really just asking way too much for people to wait long enough to find out what actually happened in and precipitated the shooting before throwing a riot.

    Sad.

    I know, it must be the store owners fault?

    All I'm doing is telling you what the story stated since you seem to not understand it.

    I'm the one that says that maybe it's a good idea to wait till the details become clear before forming an opinion.

    I for one don't expect the details in such an incident to be clear for a few days.
