Not just dash, but body cams too. The more I read about them, the more I think they should be standard. They protect the cops from false claims of brutality. They protect the citizens from brutality. They cause almost everone to be less agressive because they know they are being filmed. I cannot think of a single downside.
Sadly, this kids death will be used for fear mongering on both sides of the argument.
I truly think justice is wanted by both sides. But, there are always several versions out there of an argument/incident, unless you get it on tape or something.
That is why I mentioned the dash cams right up front.
i don't care about "brotherhood" at all when it comes to cops or the military. If one screws up, he should not be covered by others just because he wears the shield. Same with the military. If a guy goes off and shoots a bunch of civilians...just because...., then he should be punished.
Empathy is key here. I would not want a cop of any color to be free to shoot me or anyone i know without real cause. Disrespect is not a cause for shooting someone.
Again, I have not made a judgement on this because I don't know that many facts, but at this point, it looks like a kid(s) mouthed off to a cop and ended up getting shot. If that is the case, the the cop needs to go down.
At the same time, looters are being opportunistic in all the wrong ways. No excuse for this and most of them probably have no idea who the kid was. As has been said, many drove in from out of town, just to get in on the "action".

Not even CLOSE to a valid comparison.
People are looting because they want some free poo....no other reason. If it was about the actual situation, then there would be protests...but not looting.
looks like your friends at stormfront agree
It is all about instant gratification for them, no concept of the future.They don't actually care that that kid got shot. It gives them an excuse to act the way they want to.
It's so stupid. If a random white guy was killed by the police we would protest and take it to the media, etc., we wouldn't go looting random stores for stupid crap. It means to me that they just wanted an excuse to go loot anyway.
Same old story with blacks everywhere: any excuse to start looting and stealing - we see it here all the time.

Should the folks go home at night? Probably.
Should the police be equipped like a small army?
Not even close.

The live feed I watched earlier was crazy. So many questions as to why no one has stepped in. It's almost like Ferguson has become a separate entity from the country and none of the leaders (political, media, etc.) give a poo as the people are fending for themselves in a stand-off.

That is a sound dispersion weapon. It's been used in Iraq.
yeah that's not gonna be fun
i know the police chief said to protest but disperse at night. not sure if this was provoked by cops or people didn't have time to go home or whatever.
National Guard should be on the way if not already.
i swear this looks like a test run. sorry but it does.

Firing off in the neighborhoods. This is unreal. I'm embarrassed and sickened to watch this.
