    Now that all the dust has settled. All the evidence reviewed. And officer Wilson was not guilty of killing a suspect or violating their civil rights, should Obama offer an apology for his part in stirring the pot of racial wrong doing?

    After all, this man lost his entire life over this social storm of "conclusion jumping," and what for? For doing his job and wanting to go home at the end of the day?

    Me thinks this man and his family deserves public acknowledgement for doing his job as sworn to do, and what would go a long way in fixing his name? An apology from the POTUS who cast tons of doubt on the man and his desire to protect and serve.

    Do you believe an official apology is not only the right thing to do, but due him? :thumbsup:

    This qualifies you as a race baiter. No apology is due. Nobody except old, white, prejudiced men and women who listen to conservative talk radio seem to think that he did anything wrong.

    Officer Wilson shot and killed a young man and expressed that if he had it to do over, he would do nothing differently.

    He should be apologizing to God.

    I am surprised that they did not invent some reason to carry things further.

    I know I shouldn't ask, because I know you will offer insults, judgment an accusations, BUT how does my question make me a "race baiter?"

    What it does is just say the opposite of whatever you say. It doesn't have anything really to contribute. If you make an accusation it will just accuse you of the same thing. It doesn't like the content of your posts so it just works to inflame you to get you to stop. That is what trolls do. Trolls will go away when they are no longer fed.

    Agreed. I have been sick the last week, and not on much, so I just found it interesting that a lot of comments made by him, are going unnoticed. That is good :smilewinkgrin:

    Due to my recent illness, I will be logging on less here, so, thanks for your fellowship, Rev, and God bless.

    No I became I'll, and had to cut my speaking engagements short. My company is sending a junior partner to finish up for me. Always gotta have a backup plan. Thanks for asking. Was looking forward to visiting Disney this time out.

    Well, there's always next time :smilewinkgrin:

    The truth is that the government knew the truth from the beginning.

    Sure they did. But they have to act like they are worth having and that they're doing their jobs.

    And because they knew, this has become an accepted way to placate or massage the emotions of the angry crowds. And that is a sham! It needs to end, but I doubt I will see the day when we stop doing things just to appease a certain group of people! It is my opinion that riots are tolerated as a form of letting angry crowds get some payback against society in general! Once they riot and take as much free stuff as they can carry, things tend to go back to how they were before the incident took place.

    This is why rioters and looters in general, never see the inside of a courthouse, or pay restitution! And most of the time, looters and rioters only hurt their own neighbors. Neighbors trying to provide these crowds a needed service.

    The sad thing is, these socially ethnic groups don't seem to see what is going on. If they did, they'd surely find another, more peaceful, legal way to reach their goal of righting the wrong done against them.
