Could be worse, could be Sadaam and Mustard gas.

We'll get there.

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon (D) has given control of security operations in Ferguson to Missouri State Highway Patrol. Capt. Ronald S. Johnson, who heads the highway patrol’s troop in the region, and will now direct the law enforcement response in the riot-riven city.

“We are going to have a different approach and have the approach that we’re in this together,” Johnson told reporters Thursday. “I understand the anger and fear that the citizens of Ferguson are feeling, and our officers will respect both of those.”

Anytime a white guy shoots a black guy the white guy is automatically a "racist" and Al Sharpton & co. show up. How many unarmed black guys are shot in Chicago a day? It's not that I don't think the white guy is at fault, it's just how everything is turned into racism and blacks who aren't even involved demand sympathy. I know several people who live for cases like this just so they can go around talking and arguing about it. It's not just that side of racism... KKK riots in 2014? Just makes me sick.

This isn't simply a case of a black man getting shot. That happens every day. Surely you're not being that obtuse?

I'm hoping with all my being you aren't that dense.

i actually predicted this several pages ago so no i won't be changing my name again, i'll just continue to encourage you to read before you type. rand isn't as dependent on the white supremacist vote, having come to the realization that his father's style is definitely effective if your goal is to line your pockets with the fiat currency of neo-nazis but it doesn't really allow for effective national campaigns (see: every time ron paul tried to run for president)

If only politics were more flexible I would love a Rand Paul/Corey Booker ticket for president/vice package.

This narrative is becoming a great divide.

Then:

Trayvon Martin was in the wrong but did not deserve to be shot and killed by a wanna be cop who abused a law. If evidence was stronger and not speculative, I firmly believe George would have fried but unfortunately evidence was weak and became to much of a burden for the state. People are going to say this new incident is similar but I say these incidences are two different animals.

Now:

I do not know the facts because I have not kept up with this to be honest. It definitely sounds like police used excessive force on a 'unarmed' teen by what little info I have picked up. Police have a right to protect themselves against harm to themselves or to 'protect' society. Too me, none of the scenarios fit for justification for the cop. This is a sad tragedy and a big step back for cop-black community.

This should be time for all communities to unite and come together but unfortunately media narrative with race baiters and politics are going to prevent that. I pray for the victim's family. I do not understand the struggles of other cultures in the United States nor do I pretend to know out of respect because I do not everyone's struggles. Why do people tend to see color instead of each other as brother/sister with colorblindness. At the end of the day, we are all American citizens and we should be united.

What scares me is the police force has slowly gone from Barney Fife to Call of Duty commando. Is the change of policing just intimidation to deter action of others or is it more?

I don't think America is all that divided. At least not as much as the media would lead us to believe.

We have pockets where the communities are not unified and there is no bridge of dialogue or help.

That's why sports and coaching even young kids are co crucial to breaking down walls and misconceptions and stereotypes.

Niah, its horseshit.  Older generation is divided... younger generation not so much.  I've seen many blacks, whites, hispanics and asians protesting side by side last night.
