    The way things are headed in this country,having a heavily-armed police force will be of great use to a few.

    Taco Chihuahua says:
    The thing nobody mentions but that is the most spectacularly ridiculous about Ferguson:
    Black kids are routinely shot for being SUSPECTED of carrying a gun. Read it? SUSPECTED. Guns are that dangerous.

    Down the road at Starbucks, you got fat beardy white guys, the kind with the second ammendment tattoed to their culos, with loaded guys just because they can and want to be movie action heroes in a World that doesn’t need them.

    You missed the unarmed white kids that are shot. Try not to spew race and hate for your one sided, politicized argument.

    @sw10mm

    Are people who shoot white kids prosecuted for the crime?
    You bet they are.
    Will the Ferguson cop be prosecuted?
    crickets

    Again you display you don’t know what your talking about.

    Per Fred

    Every white cop short of the orbit of Neptune knows that if he shoots a black, he faces dismemberment in the media, loss of job and pension, probable criminal charges locally by a publicity-seeking prosecutor, a well-funded civil suit that he can’t afford filed by surviving family members, and trumped-up federal civil-rights charges from an attorney general who doesn’t like whites.

    Now as a former overnight TV news cameraman, I’d concur. Now don’t get me wrong. As what’s known as a “stringer” I didn’t get to ride along with the cops because I didn’t worked for a major publication. So I only did this gig twice for a couple of years. Folks like Fred got published in some “crime beat” report, or if they’re lucky, some expose. Salary plus benefits. On TV, if it’s not a double homicide, they don’t buy your footage and you don’t get paid . Flames from a house fire they’ll buy, but they won’t buy— or report— on the store owner whose guts are spattered all over the walls during a holdup. Their policy is to keep a lid on such things. If the honest population knew what was going on, they’d throw every politician out of office.

    Now let’s talk about you. You’re a reiteration of someone else, but I forgot your previous name, because, frankly, your forgettable. (I’m terrible with names. Someone else can help me out here.) You live in Canada..Your parents don’t understand you and you have a strained relationship, Boyfriends don’t stick. You’re (I hope only slightly) overweight (not a condemnation, I tend to like a woman with some meat on their bones), you like the ganja (also no condemnation), and you like dogs (so do I). You’ve got tattoos (See, you lost me there. Heavy chicks with tattoos are a turn off. Hot chicks with tattoos are a turn off also, but, hey, they’re hot. Aww, and we were so right for each other!). You post (IMO) lame toons on GC. (Good for the self-esteem!)

    When’s the last time you where in the ghetto after 11pm? Have you ever even visited a ghetto?

    ( Please Note: Ghetto has become a politically incorrect term. It is perfectly appropriate to use this term for poor neighborhoods that Jews, Italians and Asians congregated before assimilation into the society at large, but today’s PC terminology for poor black neighborhood is “inner city”. This will apply even in the suburbs or even countryside. Alternatively, these areas may be referred to as “as yet to be gentrified” Further note that in order for an area to be re-gentrified, it must have been gentrified in the first place. This leaves large swaths of the US ineligible . Please make a note of it.)

    Now I feel bad, I’m not picking on you, You just don’t know what you’re talking about, but parroting what you’ve been told. Nighty night.
