Ferguson is not a reason people hate the police, it's an excuse. As in the article, it's a great excuse for people who want to excuse themselves for what got them in trouble with the police. If the police are the bad guys, then you can claim not to be the bad guy when they arrest you.

Stuff like this don't generate advertising dollars, so they get no air time. Too bad.

I'm lost, you mean people don't do that now?


for some reason I was under the impression the police only arrested the innocent, and let the guilty go free.

And Bren puts it out of the park folks! Its going...Its going...It's GONE!

Sadly, a certain part of our population wants to be uncivilized animals, and a huge part of the remainder want the right to be uncivilized savages to be the next Constutitional ammendment.

And they vote for that EVERY TWO YEARS.

And they are winning the fight!

I can understand a lack of trust based upon ones opinions of shootings like in Ferguson or South Carolina, but this sounds more like hatred of police.

That hatred is coming from somewhere else.

Like Bren said, it's an excuse to vent and justify their hatred of the police. As for where that comes from, I've been saying for a while now that society at large is basically a group of 14 year olds, and we are the parents, holding them accountable and telling them they can't do everything they want to do just because the thought enters their brain. And who likes their parents when they're 14?

To quote Men In Black: A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky, dangerous animals, and you know it.

Decent article, but the writer needs to look up the difference between homicide, murder, and justified homicide.

You make a good point, but even conflating them all together to drastically inflate the impact of police shootings by probably more than an order of magnitude or two, it's still very illustrative of who the bad guy really is regarding the epidemic of young black men getting gunned down on our nation's streets.

Hint. It's not the cops.

That is why you can't read the comments. I never read the comments.

Bad guys don't see themselves as bad guys, and evil always claims justification for its existence.
