Default Ferguson, Missouri

Wow! Where is the National Guard?

It's a shame people don't want to see or admit the truth of this case, instead they deliberately ignore Michael Brown's part in all of this. None of this would be happening if not for the poor decisions Michael Brown made that day. He decided to rob a store and then decided to assault a police officer, but somehow none of that matters in the minds of those people who've chosen to make Michael Brown the victim, and this a civil rights case. The victims are the man from the store he strong-arm robbed and Officer Wilson.

After the decision was announced tonight, Michael Brown's family put out a statement how they wanted peace not violence, but they also made the statement about how the "killer" of their son wasn't going to have any consequences for killing their son. Makes me wonder, do they really want peace or do they want vigilante justice against this officer they label a "killer". What should we label/call their son? Thief, robber, criminal, thug?

I hear the media and others constantly refer to Michael Brown as the "unarmed teen" who was shot and killed. While it's true he was unarmed, as in no weapon like a gun or knife, and news reports say he was eighteen years old, "unarmed teen" is not an "accurate" portrait of Michael Brown. If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is even better, and that video of Michael Brown robbing that store using his size and strength to strong-arm that smaller man paints a more accurate picture of the threat and danger Officer Wilson encountered a few minutes later from this "unarmed teen" who assaulted him in his police vehicle (as forensic evidence shows).

there were always going to be riots ,,, the trouble makers who showed up in masks where there for one reason .. i agree with the right to demonstrate, but if you show up with a mask, and its not halloween, you should be arrested

I just heard the reason the Governor of Missouri did not give the go ahead to the National Guard that was there waiting for the signal is because the Justice Department told the Governor not to engage them in Ferguson. Now why would Eric Holder do that? Did he want Ferguson to burn? Is he using this to justify going forward with a civil rights case against Officer Wilson?

If this turns out to be true about Eric Holder telling the Governor NOT to send in the Guard, he has a lot to answer for...not that he will ever face any consequences for his actions!
