    After watching FOX this evening and listening to interviews with blacks in the small crowd outside the police station, I was horrified to hear:

    1) The refusal to believe in the DOJ report, and continuing to stand by the "hands up, don't shoot" fantasy?
    2) That some believed the cops shot last night was righteous vindication for Brown?
    3) The belief that the two cops shot last night, were shot by the KKK, or fellow cops to solicit renewed support for cops. They believed this because both cops were not killed (note on cops condition: both may never work again)?
    4) There is a coming revolution, of violence, to rid the nation of white cops and politicians?

    These kind of beliefs are unbelievable, and scary.

    Now my questions, do you believe that enforcing laws for UNLAWFUL assembly would be helpful in showing that these gatherings and willful disruption of public activities will no longer be tolerated. In other words, is it time to REMOVE the "kid gloves"and hold these protesters responsible for unlawful actions in order to gain control of this lynch-mob mentality???

    Finally, are the attitudes of these individuals disturbing to you too? And do you think a more violent revoltion could follow suit?

    Well they have heard racists Al Sharpton, Barak Obama, and AG Holder spewing racist barnyard crap for years so they are not going to instantaneously change. Truth be known there is probably more racism in the black community than in the white.

    We don't see white crowds going into black neighborhoods burning and pillaging. Of course there have been white anarchists in the Ferguson rioting but they are paid by George Soros. That person needs to have his citizenship revoked and kicked out of the country.

    Revolt is what the ZERO is just itching to see so he can declare martial law, suspend the '16 elections, and assume his ”rightful" place as supreme dictator.
    Hopefully (?????) if we do manage to have the elections and a CONSERVERTIVE is actually elected POTUS, then, and only then will we (again, hopefully) see honest-to-goodness law enforcement.
    Hey, I can dream, can't I??? :sleep:

    Ferguson isn't a flash point for anything.

    It's an exhaust port.

    :wavey: One reason you would not see whites going into any community and burning, and pillaging are they'd be ARRESTED for walking on the public streets, blocking traffic and unlawful assembly. And if they did kit to a 7-11 and pillage it, they'd all be rounded up, per video camera images, arrested and stand trial for rioting, stealing, and vandelsim! :smilewinkgrin:

    The flash point for racial tension is not Ferguson. It's the Whitehouse.

    Now I like that! That is more factual than half of America wants to admit! As I've said before, If Obama and Holder came out and admitted they were wrong about Brown and Officer Wilson, things would settle way down.

    Nevertheless, Obama and Holder didn't like the fact that Wilson was exonerated, and they went after the force, and like all police forces, there will be some degree of racism.

    Maybe the DOJ ought to be forced to say to what degree or percentage of the department ion Ferguson was racist? I'll bet it was minimal, and that is acceptable in anyone's standards. Hey, t is racism in the military, Should we disband it? Well, Obama may be behind that, so I'll stop there!

    There is racism in the Congress, and the Black Caucus is an example of that.

    There is racism in Hollywood, proved by the BET network and the Black Entertainment Awards, and the Black Music Awards.

    There is racism in academia, look at the Black Colleges that rely upon the UNCF (united Negro Colleges Fund). BTW - "haters" please don't jump on me for using the word "Negro" as it is still used in this ong time funding source. A source that has done wonders to help disadvataged blacks get an education they may never have gotten without it. I've even donated to their fund. I am not against it, just saying, hey, they have this, and other groups don't.

    We don't see a white, Asian, Hispanic version of these events and groups, do we?

    I recall reading history articles------which President was it that mobilized Federal troops during the integration periods----mobilized the Federal troops to escort blacks onto school campuses in Little Rock, AR---that was Eisenhower, I think?? And wasn't that the 82nd Airborne division??

    Wonder what it would take for ZERO to mobilize-----lets just saaaaay the 1st Armored or the 10th Mountain Division to patrol and break up the riot acts there in Ferguson???

    Any other US Prez would have called up these groups by now. But not Zero!

    I agree! Race relations are worse now than anytime in recent years. As far as i know there has been no particular trouble where I live except for a few juveniles in school!
