    Just watched some current TV coverage coverage of the 'protests' in Ferguson. Lots of 20 something owns with red bandanas around their faces.........fists in the air for 'black power'......walking down the middle of a busy street with their pants around their thighs. Don't these people have jobs, families, responsibilities? Absolutely pathetic

    Around 20 years ago, Ferguson was 25% black. Now it's right around 70% black.

    /just sayin'.

    When was there no violence? Its pretty clear liberals and their causes of the day need to consult the Tea Party on how to hold a protest, as every liberal protest ends in violence these days...

    It seems like the middle of a riot is not a particularly good choice as a place to hold a peaceful protest.

    That's called the proverbial tipping point where things don't function anymore........whether it be a neighborhood, school, city or country.........just look around the world

    I noticed that they didn't explain why the cops were there in the first place. Also I noticed that instead of complying with the request by the police this so-called reporter was clearly creating a situation of stalling. Why not show the video from the beginning? Oh right, that might require some integrity, won't find that with liberal 'journalists'...

    No, the police were stopping protests that were not violent as well.

    What right do the police have in kicking reporters exercising their free speech rights and doing their job out of a privately owned establishment?

    Why were the cops inside in the first place? That's the real question I see no answer to. There are always two sides to a story, I'd rather hear both sides before making a definitive statement, particularly when the so-called victims in this case didn't or wouldn't show the full context, just the snippet that might on the surface support their 'claims'...

    Exactly. Why were the cops inside the McDonald's kicking people out? They have no right to do that. It doesn't matter why the cops are inside--their presence does not negate the fact that the reports have every right to be inside of a privately owned restaurant, nor does it give them any right to kick them out. Period.

    In my experience anytime people greet a stranger with words like what the fucx or get the fucx or that sort of thing it ends badly, but when a cop does it without provocation then he is not a qualified competent professional, he is a loose cannon who has lost sight of what his job is and where his paycheck comes from, you know, the sort of guy who ends up shooting a guy with his hands in the air

    If the cops were invited inside to ask these people to leave, that would be a different story altogether, but McDonalds would never admit that happened if it did. We still only have one side of the story and that being told with a clear agenda at hand...

    Do you even read the (*)(*)(*)(*) you link?
    The officer drew his weapon, and "he said, 'I'll shoot you' or 'I'm going to shoot' " and almost instantaneously fired his weapon, hitting Brown, Johnson said.

    Johnson and a bloodied Brown took off running, and Johnson hid behind the first car he saw, he said. The officer got out of his car.

    Of course, that battle was won long ago. Today's race issues are not what MLK and the blacks of his generation faced. What we have today is an angry, poor, and self-defeating minority that seeks to continue the race war indefinitely as a substitute for taking responsibility for their own problems as they exist today and making positive changes (like, away from drug abuse and gang culture, from welfare teat-suckling, etc.). It's so much easier to go on blaming Whitey for everything... And then there are morons and manipulators who likewise help perpetuate this madness, because it benefits them personally, whether monetarily or, as with those angry poor blacks, emotionally and intellectually.

    Actually they do........if the owner called them to remove them...........which neither has been confirmed or denied..........but their free speech does not extend into private property without owner approval

    I did notice the so-called journalist never argued about the point of why he was asked to leave, only that he wanted to film it and wanted more time. Seems that we don't have the full story, as if the cops had no cause whatsoever, why wasn't that part filmed? This is what I'm talking about, we get a snippet of film without full context and some people jump to conclusions and make definitive statements of the police being wrong...

    What choo talkin bout Willis?

    I think he was killed because of his opposition to the Vietnam war and because of his support for RFK in the upcoming presidential election. People who got in LBJ's way tended to end up dead.

    If it's a "request", then they don't have to comply.

    Again, nobody even knows why the cops were inside in the first place, if they had cause and this at the request of the manager of the private property the whole story changes. Snippets of film that lack context should not be used to make definitive judgments...
