11 gunshots just to incapacitate someone? Did he even have a knife?

But surveilance of officers will impede their duty and put them at risk.  :showus:

I think it's adorable.  We contrive such fragile systems of thinking and then huff and puff about it. :lulz:

They're not really constructed, so much as they evolve over time. I'm fairly certain there have never been any Jewish carpenters who were able to stop storms, walk on water, and rise from the dead. But I'm also fairly certain at least one Jewish carpenter just kinda said, "Fuck this hammering. I'm gonna preach!" one day. Where that other stuff came in, I don't know. Maybe they did some good drugs. But Christianity didn't come out of thin air, and it certainly wasn't contrived like Scientology or Discordia.

Oh, and there's a video of the "brutal robbery", you know.

There Brown is, paying for his cigars. (at 36 seconds)

Ferguson police's attempts to demonize Michael Brown, the unarmed African-American teen killed by Officer Darren Wilson, may have hit a small snag. The very video they released at the same time as they identified Wilson as the officer responsible for shooting Brown six times, including twice in the head, may show the opposite of what they intended.

Supposedly, the video shows Brown robbing the store, taking a box of cigars. However, the attorney for Ferguson Market says that it was not anyone from the store that called police to report a robbery. In fact, a customer called to report what he viewed as a robbery.

How, then, did police get the tape? According to St. Louis News, the attorney said, "Ĺduring the course of Ferguson's investigation, the police department from Ferguson, came to the store and asked for to review the tape." In other words, the tape was not viewed by police until after Michael Brown was dead in the street.

In their fervent effort to cast Brown in a  negative light, they missed that the video seems to show Brown paying for the Swisher Sweets.

The confrontation between Brown and the clerk may have been because Brown impatiently reached across the counter. Perhaps it was wrong for Brown to shove the employee (it is impossible to know what words were exchanged) but this footage seems to exonerate him. It is important to note that Brown only shoved the clerk after he put his hands on him.

In any case, neither the employee nor the store owner called law enforcementľsomething that would surely happen if Brown committed a "strong-arm robbery."

So, Von, care to explain why it was a "brutal robbery"? 

Not that it's really necessary, of course.  Your standards for what constitutes a criminal are painfully obvious by this point.

Where did Von go?  He was just here a minute ago.   :lulz:

I went to work, thats where.
cant view the video on this phone. Give me around 16 hours, ill have a response by that point.

Spoiler alert. It shows the deceased acquiring cigars by legal means.

Huh, interdasting.
Ill be waiting for a video explaining how the shooting officer received a fractured eye then.

Concerning journalists:
although unfortunate, keeping them in press areas is good for their safety considering recent events such as msnbc correspondants being pelted with rocks, vice correspondants being pelted with bottles, and several miscellaneous blog-tier journalists getting robbed.

either way, im sure the window repair market in ferguson will be booming in the coming months.

Yes citizen, why dont you keep to protest designated areas in the middle of nowhere and obey curfew? Why wont you let us "safety" you and your fellows? Why do you force me to pacify you?

Atheists are basically boring Satanists; lacking the booze, bikes, drugs and humour.

Military armed men have no place in civilian settings unless the civilians are armed... i mean, really? kill them all in the name of taco bell?

Theres a reason why the military is not police and viceversa, one is for killing and the other is supposed to uphold the laws thru detention (which most of the time means incapacitating by arrest or non lethal means, and if someone is endangering others, thats what the SWAT teams are for).

Since when are civilians of your own country treated as enemy combatants... OH WAIT, i forgot its the 21st century.

"For those who would claim that the curfew was what led to [the] violence, I will remind you this incident began three and a half hours before the curfew was to have started," he told journalists in Ferguson on Monday.

A primates sense of causality in this one - just because something that was stated to be taken into action in the near future hasnt happened yet, doest exclude it from being the causality.

[...] the media and what seems to be the general public would rather show more concern for the store owners whose property are being taken than for the black lives that are being lost. This has me begging the question, would black peoples lives be more valued if we were still property?

http://thisisbobbylondon.wordpress.com/2014/08/12/looting-is-a-political-tactic/

Interesting question in the era where property = people, but people ≠ property.

Maybe if blacks were still slaver's property? :roll:

54
So if you commit a crime, it's OK for police to shoot you?

Or It's OK for black kids to get shot as long as it's a black cop that shoots them?

Holy fuck, I'd forgotten how much of an idiot racist you are.



Jonny/QG, Sincere apologies. You clearly had the correct motorcycle and I should have been on it instead of pointing out the fucking obvious about undercover cops.

was a nice summary of police infiltration, i was too lazy myself to link it up

55
LOL dickbutts

Im sure you will find some good rationalizations and twisted logic to keep up with your racism and approval of fascism in no time.

Liberal bias, blahblahrgh motherfucker

56

Because agent provocateurs dont exist, blacks are violent by nature and the police is there to save everyone from themselves and to "public order" them.

Looking at yourself in the third person is not introspection, its dissassociation.

Dare I ask what a skeleton war is?

It is not A skeleton war, its THE skeleton war. :evilmad:

In close to home sort of news, my friend who is currently about to complete his PhD at Dartmouth had 2 buddies scheduled to be on this flight. They decided to stay an extra day in Amsterdam to smoke pot. They were part of the AIDS research team.

Not sure if irony that drugs saved their lives or...

But if they keep injecting marijuanas they will get AIDS  :eek:

From what I've seen, voices depend upon biographical experience. But what is biographical experience after all? Family interactions, the oh-so-broad term "experiences", and yes, of course, local culture.

So, i dont know, its nice validation that the schizophrenic experience is something more than "bad biological/physiological functioning" dictating everything, other than that i dont see the value or use of this finding.

It's not exactly news, but it is confirmation that cultural attitudes shape the experience of the mentally ill, and that in the US we have a particularly harsh/negative (I might even say punitive) attitude toward mental illness. We are, after all, only about a generation away from an era when we simply locked them up in warehouse-like sanitariums where they were drugged, experimented on, and if difficult to control, chained to the wall and hosed down.

In this case, who knows, anthropological confirmation of what psychologists already know may help build that body of knowledge up to the point where it has enough weight to effect a cultural shift in how we perceive mental illness.

Ok, maybe I'm too much of a negative Sally and it is important in a "popular science" manner; after all, we have a bunch of people still thinking its demonic possession or divine punishment, et al.
