    What did I present that isn't a fact? I'd honestly like to know. Enlighten me please.

    You have not made one good point. You suck at debate and you can't spell. And you abuse ellipses in posts, clearly another indication of your KKK membership. (*snort*)

    Have you not read any of the crazy links that you've posted? Haha. None of them are news. They are extreme-right opinion pieces that don't contain facts. They contain emotions and accusations that aren't relevant to what happened.

    Okay....lets debate this fact. White on black violence is paraded in the national media at every opportunity while black on white violence is ignored and not reported on at all because the media is racist.

    False. Try again!

    I gotta go to bed. Try to stick to the topic so that this thread can stay open. It is important.

    No, let's NOT.

    THAT IS DRIFT.

    DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND THIS CONCEPT?

    THE TOPIC OF THIS THREAD HAS BEEN CLEARLY DEFINED. I HAVE ATTEMPTED TO HELP YOU IN THIS REGARD SEVERAL TIMES. YOU DO NOT GET TO CHANGE THE TOPIC.

    NOBODY DOES.

    IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO START YOUR OWN THREAD, GO AHEAD.

    This thread is about the events of Ferguson. The OP post seems pretty clear. They didn't say this thread was limited to discussing police shooting unarmed people. I'd suggest that maybe you start your own thread if you'd like to discuss that.

    Obviously the events of Ferguson are racially charged. If you cannot handle a discussion about race like an adult, and cannot prevent yourself from caps lock yelling. Perhaps make your own thread that is limited to Police militarization which is what you seem to care about.

    We have stated repeatedly (note that the OP hasn't been here since the OP) that this thread is limited to police. You keep attempting to drift it to topics OUTSIDE of the police.

    I vote we alert the mods and admins and let them decide, I'll go do that now.

    Not surprised that you're planning on "allert"ing the mods of my bad spelling. I'm pretty familiar with how much liberals love censorship. Bet we will be seeing more disappearing posts. Nothing to see here.

    My opinion is different than yours so your obvious response is immediately start censoring. I haven't said anything that is more rude than you or untrue and you've made it clear you have no interest in actually debating anything.

    I really hope you understand there is a massive portion of the country that isn't as blind as you. I'll screencap just to show how much ya'll love censorship which I have no doubt is about to happen. Don't bother defeating me with well argued points. Go cry to mother censorship!

    One personal piece of advice. Maybe you should invest in an echochamber?

    Yeah but I'm on Tapatalk on an iPhone so at least I have an excuse (alert).

    I am not going to debate topics unrelated to this thread, no. I am not going to contribute to drift. That's not censorship, that's general forum decorum. DigitalChaos has taken more in-depth gun discussion to his Gun Rights thread and Libertarian discussion elsewhere, as well.

    Edit: censorship. Wtf. Maybe some of us just get sick of fucking drift. Drift is like the fucking ADHD of forums.

    There isn't a proper smiley to convey how I feel about this post. You can tell yourself that "drift" makes censorship okay. I'll just watch the censors sweep in on what contradicts their views and smile knowingly.

    Since the grand jury will be sitting until at least the end of October, probably longer, it seems stupid to even keep this thread unlocked as it just invites this type of senseless drift. Maybe it would get unlocked once the grand jury makes its decision.

    Meanwhile, I'll leave you with this Chicagoist piece which explains about faulty comparisons:

    And it might now seem much, but HealStL, led by Antonio French, has published an amazon wish list.

    In an attempt to steer things a bit further away from LOCK THIS SHIT UP... here is a great article about the social media stupidity that surrounded Ferguson.

    Ferguson Reveals a Twitter Loop


    and the real kicker on top of all that: "A survey by Rasmussen Reports nine days after the fatal shooting of Michael Brown found that half of those surveyed had already made up their minds as to who was at fault. By that reckoning, it doesn’t matter what the facts are, people are going to find the tweets that support their viewpoint."




    How many of those false stories did you see perpetuated on facebook/twitter?

    todays fun fact:
    "St. Louis city has spent $740,849 for officer and overtime costs in Ferguson. $161,783 equipment purchases. They are billing Missouri."

    Any legal commentary on this?

    I'm guessing the fact that he wasn't convicted says it all. But I don't know if a conviction would be hidden in a juvenile record?...

    What would a conviction or non conviction have to do with anything? Seems a bit irrelevant.

    It's called character assassination. It's pretty reckless and irresponsible journalism to be reporting allegations of a prior conviction if court records haven't been released.

    This thread is starting to veer into Infowars territory.

    I don't think it's fair to compare a weapons class to sex ed. Sex is an important part of life that everyone will participate in eventually, and they need to be prepared. Guns are not a necessary part of life.

    Just because you were arrested in relation to a crime doesn't mean you are guilty. With the character assassination attempts on him, I wouldn't be surprised if Brown was arrested due to something like a mistaken identity but the conservative blogs want to run with it anyway.

    I think you're right, I could see why the defense attorney would try and use that as proof that Mike may have been a bad seed before the incident and try to sway the jury to believe it wouldn't be out of his general character to attack a police officer, but I would NOT be a fan of using that information for that purpose.

    It's low hanging fruit and I don't think it really has any relevancy to the case at hand.

    You're using incorrect words, here; "defense attorney" and "jury" etc. To date, there is no criminal case, there is no defendant, and the only lawsuit was brought by a "journalist" troll.

    I'd be surprised if Brown wasn't arrested while he was a juvenile because he was a violent low life gangster thug....

    Robert Novak, nuff said.

    Excuse me, guys, I need to go update my bio on all social media I use. You see, I'm an award-wining journalist- I got the certificates to prove it! True, they're from high school but let's not split hairs.

    Um, I'm assuming you read the above-referenced scathing Wonkette piece? Particularly the link to the Business Insider piece, wherein several people call him unstable? And probably mental?
