Michael Brown's Mother: 'They Still Don't Care--They Ain't Never Gon' Care'

Part of Michael Brown's mother Lesley McSpadden's reaction to the news that a St. Louis County grand jury would not indict Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson for shooting her son Michael Brown was caught on tape.

Missouri should change it's name to Misery, a more accurate description of a state that released this information late at night. Can the US Justice Dept. charge the state of Missouri with inciting a riot?

"In too many parts of this country, a deep distrust exists between law enforcement and communities of color.” - President Barack Obama

I'm not shocked by those defending Wilson. Its easier to defend the cop than it is to admit that racial bias & systemic racism exists.- Elon James White tweet

Don Lemon Gets Schooled By Jesse Jackson
CNN host Don Lemon was perplexed by the violence that erupted in Ferguson after the St. Louis County grand jury decided not to indict police officer Darren Wilson, and turned to Rev. Jesse Jackson for an explanation.

Conservatives seem to think the media can cause unrest. I guess their proof is that Fox News created the Tea Party.- LOLGOP

POLL: No Government Shutdown
Americans are evenly divided as to whether President Barack Obama should act unilaterally to reshape the immigration system but they broadly oppose a government shutdown as a way to stop him, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll.

By a 68 to 25 percent margin, voters don't want Congress to shut down "major activities of the federal government" in order to thwart Obama's executive actions on immigration.

When have the authorities in Ferguson ever give us any reason not to be 100% confident in their judgement?- LOLGOP

Wilson Sounds Like A Weenie
Wilson, who testified that he is 6'4 and around 210 lbs, told the grand jury that when he tried to grab Brown, "the only way to describe it is that I felt like a five-year-old holding onto Hulk Hogan." At one point, he expressed concern that Brown could have possibly killed him with a punch to the face.

Can Cops Legally Shoot People?
 A Missouri grand jury's decision to spare police officer Darren Wilson from criminal charges is the latest in a long line of police shooting investigations that show the latitude afforded law enforcement in using deadly force.

The guys who warn about 2nd amendment solutions when you try to get them health care seem oddly ok with the state shooting certain men dead.- LOLGOP

Britain and Police Shootings
In 2012, according to data compiled by the FBI, 410 Americans were “justifiably” killed by police—409 with guns. That figure may well be an underestimate. Not only is it limited to the number of people who were shot while committing a crime, but also, amazingly, reporting the data is voluntary.

Last year, in total, British police officers actually fired their weapons three times. The number of people fatally shot was zero. In 2012 the figure was just one. Even after adjusting for the smaller size of Britain’s population, British citizens are around 100 times less likely to be shot by a police officer than Americans. Between 2010 and 2014 the police force of one small American city, Albuquerque in New Mexico, shot and killed 23 civilians; seven times more than the number of Brits killed by all of England and Wales’s 43 forces during the same period.
