Obama seems to have an agenda of division and hate.
When a black man shoots a little white girl, Obama speaks volumes with his silence.
He's a racist of the worst stripe.

For a president who touted a Transparent government and bringing races closer together... I have never seen our country so opposite on both issues.

He is not far from causing race wars I believe.

Why does everyone conveniently forget he is only half black?


O;
What choo say foo? My peeps don't want me to do "IT"... I'll just sign this executive order and have It anyway because I can!

And there were zero White House officials at Margaret Thatcher's funeral.

Regardless of what you think of Thatcher, she was the leader of arguably our number one ally in the world.

First: Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel did go to General Greene's funeral. Neither Nixon nor Bush Sr. attended the funerals of generals; apparently it isn't "tradition" for the President to attend. I wouldn't have wanted him there if I was Greene's family!

However: Sending 3 White House representatives to attend the funeral of a man who robbed a store and assaulted a police officer is totally inappropriate, no matter what the races of the people involved. They sure are quick to support this man when all of the evidence is not yet gathered. They are supporting him because of his RACE. They've got to keep racism alive - it keeps people like Sharpton in business, and it furthers the socialist agenda.

Campfiregirl (and others), I totally believe that the potus, as well as Sharpton & Jackson jr are trying to keep racism alive.

I have made a complete 180° concerning the death of Brown.

I still believe him to be a thug or at least a thug impersonator. I acknowledge that he stole some tobacco & pushed around a store clerk while doing so. I also acknowledge he did not follow LEO instructions to get out of the street & then moments later seriously attacked the same LEO & tried to disarm him.

My question is: are any of the are any of the actions of the Thug Brown punishable by Death in a court of law?

Amd there is my rub. Thug Brown was not afforded his day in court. LEO Wilson will have his day in court.

He was /is trained for law "enforcement". What made him decide to exit his vehicle & confront Brown instead of waiting for backup?

Unfortunately, to meet that standard, the policeman would have to wait until Brown killed him to take action that could result in Brown's death.

And what happened if a dozen police showed up and Brown still refused to cooperate? If you apply the standard that a person can never be shot until he has killed someone in the presense of the police, they will never be able to arrest anyone who resists.

What standard are you speaking of?

There is a HUGE difference betweenan arrest and a death.

When my ex was stalking me & my children, but staying beyond the spevified distance, I was told by the LEO & the county DA they could not make an arrest of what my ex might do.
Are the lives of LEO more important than a normal citizen?

Because the policeman did not shoot based on what the man had already done. He shot because he believed he was in danger at that moment and needed to stop Brown. Or at least whether that was a reasonable belief is what the grand jury will hopefully decide.

If Brown had kept running away then I'd agree with you. When he turned and charged the cop the cop had the right to defend himself. Or would you prefer the cop get beat down/killed and have his weapon taken to be used on an innocent?
