    The shooting of Michael Brown is certainly tragic, but without all the facts out in the open the entire situation has turned tragic. One statement that has been proven false is that Brown was a gentle giant, now I’m not attempting to downplay the death or make a criminal of Brown just stating fact. The rioters need to let the justice system allow the truth to come out, if the officer abused his power he will pay for his crime. The old saying stands as true as ever here, if the officer was in the wrong, that is two wrongs don’t make a right. These people are destroying their own community, which absolutely blows my mind, although in my opinion many of them are opportunists (if that’s what they really should be called) from out of town.

    I do not understand a few stories that evolved out of this mess that has been created in Ferguson, MO, from the shooting of Brown. The first is the outrage of police officers being dressed in riot gear, well there’s a riot going on would these people prefer them to be dressed in leisure suits. Sure, maybe they the armored vehicles could have been hidden close by in the case they were needed, instead of being so prominently displayed in the beginning. Should the police have refrained from pointing weapons at the rioters that’s a hard question to answer it’s a riot people are in imminent danger at all times during this time. So I’m not sure what people expect law enforcement to do in a situation like this, if people had died during the first few nights these same people would have been bitching about law enforcement not being more prepared.

    Also, I don’t understand Eric Holder ordering a 3rd autopsy on Brown’s body after the 1st two autopsies returned the same results. Especially after one of the autopsies was performed by the renowned Dr. Michael Baden, likely the best forensic pathologist of our time. In my opinion Holder just likes to show everybody how important he is. With the Federal Government getting involved in this issue they’re likely to screw something up and make the situation worse.

    All in all the best for everybody is to calm down and let the criminal justice system sort everything out. Please for your own good, citizens of Ferguson, MO stop destroying your own community. For those of you that are protesting peacefully, God bless you.

    Mob mentality is a symptom of a society in decline. Many people no longer think for themselves, whether they are unable to, unwilling to and/or because they have been indoctrinated. So many are already slaves and they don’t even know it. They have allowed themselves to be defined as ‘victims’ and thus are entitled to the money/benefits that this, that or the other program provides. They do not have a sense of pride in themselves nor do they have respect for what others have earned or achieved and feel justified in taking the property of others. They have succumbed to the balkanization which the left promotes, ie, they let themselves be put into a category (us against them mentality) while not realizing this allows someone else to define and control them.

    They see themselves as victims when another downtrodden of the flock dies or as they see it, is unjustly treated. Some can’t seem to differentiate between that person and themselves as they have no sense of self nor appreciation of individual liberty. This mob mentality is like a virus, and it is going to become more common as our society decays. Why else would people from other cities/states feel compelled to join in as if they have some investment in this community, other than because they somehow ‘identify’ with the ‘victims’ in Ferguson? I think some outsiders are there because they are anarchists, but I think a lot of people are showing up because they truly feel they have a stake in this ‘movement’.

    Those in the mob have little or no respect for the rule of law, or its process. That truly frightens me, and I cannot imagine how the working people and business owners in that community must feel, let alone the emergency workers, firefighters and police.

    There are others that are responsible in part for this chaos, too. The media in this case is complicit in this madness, they are responsible for inciting people to riot, loot and vandalize. The coverage by such ‘news’ outlets as Huff Po, CNN & MSNBC has been nearly entirely pro-rioter and pro-anarchist. Their coverage from the onset has comprised insinuations and outright claims that Officer Wilson is guilty, by mischaracterization of Michael Brown, and by distortion and omission of facts. That the media released the address and showed the home of Officer Wilson was completely irresponsible and dangerous, but then again it is all about ratings.

    I think others share the blame as well. Governor Nixon was slow to act and when he did, he showed a lack of faith and confidence in the police department. His decisions have proven him to be wishy-washy, and nobody respects an indecisive leader.

    Captain Ron Johnson (who was sent in to be a ‘peacemaker’) made things worse when instead of remaining neutral, he sided with the family of Michael Brown. In doing so he gave the rioters encouragement to do even more damage. Following his meeting with members of Brown’s family Captain Johnson said the experience “brought tears to my eyes and shame to my heart.”
    “When this is over,” he told the crowd, “I’m going to go in my son’s room. My black son, who wears his pants sagging, who wears his hat cocked to the side, got tattoos on his arms, but that’s my baby.” Johnson added: “We all need to thank the Browns for Michael. Because Michael’s going to make it better for our sons to be better black men.”

    These are not the comments an impartial party makes.

    Of course we cannot forget about the part the usual suspects have played in this chaotic situation. The race hustlers have no shame. They live for this, they helped create it. If there was no racial tension, Al Sharpton would be out of business, Obama would have no ‘high road’ and Holder wouldn’t have a reason to populate the supposed civil rights division of the DOJ with radicals.

    It is a sad state of affairs.
