    This is so obvious, except to those who can’t see it…

    Since when do looters and rioters become patriots? Being black does not make you a patriot.

    Nor does it make you not a patriot.

    @cdward See my friend you and your fellow travelers including Alcaraz are accusing the entire police force of Ferguson as “an out of control police force” even though only one is really involved here. You like me have condemned the whole system because of one (or a few) who are really involved. The rest of the Henderson police force was simply trying to keep control of a situation that was getting out of hand. I know you probably didn’t mean the whole police force every where, but that is the implication, whereas I didn’t mean all the people demonstrating were rioter and looters like you implied I did. You are trying to have it both ways an out of control police force and a group of patriots demanding, (what is it again that they are demanding?) Oh yes. Justice. Isn’t it. So they march up street and down dell screaming for JUSTICE without even knowing what it looks like. Would your blood lust and hate be satisfied if they lynched the policeman involved. Or all the police in Henderson? “Screw the court room. We want justice now and we have good ol’ Reverend Al Sharpton to whip the hangin’ horse. That seems to be the type of justice you, Lalo and that crowd of malcontents and opportunists want. Yes I said malcontents” because on he first day they were protesters. on the second day they were still disgruntled, but on the third day they became malcontents there to intimidate. I suggest that the outsiders leave. That you, Lalo and the protesters take @indiethinks advice and" lighten up".

    @bdaverin It’s not hard to make a case when you have no facts. The police told the people to go home. When they ignored a lawful order and continued to disrupt the towns business the police did what they do in every unruly crowd situation they had to use minimal force. What would you have them do? Just turn the town over to the rabble. I don’t think so.

    @ agrestic Don’t hold your breath. Police have always had the authority to have the streets cleared when public and private property and safety is at stake. That’s how we prevent anarchy. You know what anarchy is don’t you. that’s when a state of lawlessness try to disrupt the legitimate government. You say that is not happening here. If I lived in Ferguson I would be afraid to go out at night or even in the day time. That violates my civil right and the civil rights of the merchants that are trying to make a living..
