Oh, and a conflict of interest was discovered. The prosecutor on the brown case has FOUR family members on the Ferguson police force. Totally going to be a fair trial.

Here's the source:

Overseeing possible charges in the shooting death of the unarmed teen falls on St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert P. McCulloch, a Missouri native whose police officer father was killed in the line of duty when McCulloch was 12.

McCulloch's mother, brother, uncle and cousin also worked for the St. Louis police department. Those close family ties to the police Ś and a bellwether decision 14 years ago not to prosecute two cops who shot and killed two suspects in a drug bust Ś have raised doubts about his objectivity in deciding whether Ferguson, Missouri, officer Darren Wilson should be prosecuted for the Aug. 9 killing of Brown, 18.

Pretty clear, but this von person seems like he's the latest incarnation of poptart though not nearly as thorough.

He's a different guy who pops in and out time and again. The most notable thing about him is that he's a libertarian.

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

Well, that's certainly the important part of this whole mess.

A good capitalist always tries to see how to make a buck in any situation. Von's just showing that entrepreneurial spirit that made this country great.

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.

Council of Nicea comes damn close, though.

Point, but that was more of a limiting event than creation of belief, in order to get some sort of consistency. It's a different kind of contriving than what I meant.

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.

6 day summer flu sounds really nasty.

I finally kicked the bastard today, after running three IV bags into my arm.

Which I had to do by myself, because my wife - love her to death - is the Mad Slasher of Tucson.

Woohoo!

Von, whether or not you love the cock, this isn't 4chan. Repeat after me. This. Isn't. 4Chan.

You can't just casually throw slurs around. It's guaranteed to get us to dismiss anything you're saying.

That said, Hoops did miss your point, which I caught the second time you said it. But it did seem at first like you were comparing the two groups ideologically.

No, I totally understood his point and found it to be completely fucking irrelevant to anything being discussed.  He has no evidence either organization is "infiltrated", and he referred to both groups as hate groups. Which one is clearly not.

Please do not mistake me ignoring his point for misunderstanding it.

Ah, gotcha.

The smug arrogance seems, to me, to be a by-product of having come to the decision that one has "figured it all out".

Either way, it's a poor sales pitch. Really it just makes religious folk more religious. The devil's unwitting agents they are, trying to lead souls astray. Or, at the very least, "those guys are assholes. I don't want any part in that." If someone calls you an idiot, you're immediately going to shut off anything they're going to say from that point on.

The Black Panthers are not the black equivalent of the KKK, in case you didn't get the memo.

He did, and then promptly misinterpreted said memo.

Incidentally, I've tweeted Senators Warren and Markey, and Representative Capuano about whether or not they would support legislation curbing the militarization of law enforcement. I've received no response.

Sorry to hear it, Roger. That sounds pretty miserable.
