    Why don’t we just allow the time for the criminal justice system to do its thing first. That is before we automatically condemn anybody. All this trial by the media (including well meaning but premature Editorial Cartoons) is not conducive to the truth or justice, one way or the other!!

    3rd panel, who are they talking about? In fergonson the guy was on his face. He was shot after he punched a cop, ran away, cop told him to stop, 295 lb kid turned around and charged! So you could not be talking about the kid in fergoson.

    Michael Brown was shot 6 times, twice in the head for jaywalking. In Ferguson, MO.

    " So you could not be talking about the kid in fergoson."

    It’s not about the kid in Ferguson. It’s about the press and how they “inform opinion” rather than informing with facts.
    And, of course, there is the other side of the coin, where the demon child with the weapons that represent a technology beyond the ability of humans to responsibly possess is a contrast to the angelic boy being a boy who ran up against the law and lost without even really trying.
    It might ultimately seem reasonable to no longer look upon Tommy as your savior. Even Sally Simpson has, eventually, to grow up.

    So he is talking about the weaponization of children? You mean like Hamas in Gaza?

    This may have been forgivable a week ago, but with all that is now known, this toon is ignorant and adds to the misinformation.

    It would appear he just committed a strong arm robbery and it is likely he resisted arrest. It is also clear the cop when nuts emptying his gun when provoked. The police chief mishandled the situation by trying to manage the bad news. The press then had a field day and helped to incite the public. The black community went crazy based on the assumption none of their kids could do anything wrong and it was all discrimination. Then all the crazies swooped in for their moment in the press and the politicians went into damage control mode. Unfortunately real change will be the last priority.

    or after being punched in the face hard enough to knock a eye sideways, when the 300 lb guy charges at you AGAIN you have a hard time getting off the next 3 shots only winging the guy, as he keeps coming at you, till he is close enough to shoot in the head and finally stop him from coming back at you!

    The black community had peaceful protest. The next day the black panthers, JJ and All along with others out side the community came in, waited till after dark and went bonkers. The people there, that live there, hide in the house.

    Do you live there? I doubt you have any idea about what you are pontificating about.

    So that is how the Conservative news people do it. How do the Liberal news people do it?

    This stopped being about Mike Brown a week ago. At this point, blaming this mess on Ferguson is like blaming D Day on the French. Most of the cops are from out of town, and the troublemakers are from all over the country. Ferguson is a decent low to middle income town that had the misfortune to be declared a war zone.

    I agree. If the cop/s acted illegally, they’ll be punished. I fail to see how breaking storefronts and looting from stores which had nothing to do with it is a valid protest. Looters should be shot in sight.
