TKC READER REAX: PATIENCE NOT FERGUSON, MISSOURI RAGE REQUIRED TO JUDGE MERITS OF MICHAEL BROWN DEADLY SHOOTING CASE!!!



TKC NOTE
: Here's an alternative TKC Reader perspective that we thought was worth consideration tonight . . .. Check it:

Ferguson, MO Message To TKC

My perspective is that of respect for due process. The media on both ends of the spectrum have sensationalized this sad event. Huffpo -- my normal go to national news website -- had the open page headline of "ARREST HIM!" It is easy to say that the Ferguson police has completely botched the handling of this event, though they are limited as to what information they can release as it is an ongoing investigation. The Coroner findings, as reported, are inconclusive. The Sharptons/Jacksons of the world are fanning the flames of unrest and using it for personal gain (remember Tawana Brawley?). "Witnesses" are being trotted out. And the media has all but convicted this cop in the court of public opinion.

Now, a St Louis Post Dispatch Crime-beat reporter has offered that police have over a dozen witnesses supporting the police officer's account. But if you go to her Twitter feed, nearly all commenters are skeptical, if not ridiculing her professional integrity.  But the police cannot participate in this media circus, and are not allowed to put their witnesses on parade. And the witnesses supporting the officer's account are no doubt fearful of reprisal should they go public.

This is a pick-and-choose media event. Last weekend, 6 people were murdered in Chicago -- all people of color. But that's just another weekend in Chicago. Likewise with the murders in KCMO. A murder of a white person in the suburbs is big news. But if person of color is killed, especially black on black crime, it's just "normal." Sadly, we don't see either media outrage or activists addressing this. Jesse Jackson lives in Chicago, yet he ignores his hometown tragedies, but goes to Ferguson to express his "outrage."

In the Ferguson case, grand jury will be convened, witnesses will testify, testimony will be considered, and a decision to prosecute or not will be made. Unfortunately, as it appears, should the officer be cleared, or not charged with murder, this will only go further to strain race relations. And no doubt further rioting.

Sure, there are bad cops. But there is no evidence to support a history of racism by the officer in question. People are likewise "outraged" that minorities are so unrepresented by the Ferguson Police Department. But has anyone asked how many people of color applied to serve with the department? Not making excuses, just looking at the realities.

Bottom Line: Ferguson is a tragedy, just like every death by violence of any form. And there is NO fair or balanced reporting of this sad string of events. But without due process, there is no system of law. While this is a polarizing and emotional event, we all should exercise patience.

Kneejerk Twitter-bot reactionary journalism from folks with dead eyes and shark smiles, dreaming of a big racial explosion in their town to catapult them to a bigger media market.

ferguson has nothing to do with michael brown anymore, it is about the police reaction to protest. mike brown was guilty, but there is not reason for arresting journalists, not allowing journalists to film, and the no fly zones. tear gas is banned by the chemical weapons treaty act for use in international war, yet they use it indiscriminately on the streets of america.

I know how you can help the poor people of Ferguson, stop going there and inciting more violence. Obama should change his phrase from Don't boo, vote to Don't loot, vote. That would also help. Low voter participation doesn't help the disenfranchised.

Ignorance and low functioning is on display in Ferguson for the world to see.

To condone destruction of property and encourage violence against police officers in the name of the deceased makes no sense.

Sadly when this is all over and we are looking at the burned out businesses and destruction America won't be sympathizing over a tragic death that served as an excuse to break laws all over that city. There is no excuse for the conduct and there is no excuse for allowing it. This isn't modern or progressive America. Ferguson has proven to be a step back centuries where t streets were rule by tyrants and thieves. The press can man up and take credit any time.

Yet again.....Ferguson protesters LOSE!!!!!!!!!

BREAKING REPORT: Officer Darren Wilson Suffered “Orbital Blowout Fracture to Eye Socket” During Mike Brown Attack

The Gateway Pundit can now confirm from two local St. Louis sources that police Officer Darren Wilson suffered facial fractures during his confrontation with deceased 18 year-old Michael Brown. Officer Wilson clearly feared for his life during the incident that led to the shooting death of Brown. This was after Michael Brown and his accomplice Dorian Johnson robbed a local Ferguson convenience store.

Michael Brown robbed a Ferguson convenience store the morning of his death.

Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.” This comes from a source within the Prosecuting Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis County Police.

A blowout fracture is a fracture of one or more of the bones surrounding the eye and is commonly referred to as an orbital floor fracture.

This comes after St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter tweeted out last night that a dozen local witnesses confirmed Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson’s version of the Brown shooting story.

The poor people of Ferguson have had their day in the sun, it is time to move on. The only reason many of them are protesting is because they are stuck in the cycle of poverty and have nothing else to do. Poverty keeps people from doing many things others take for granted. They can't move, they can't afford it. They can't go to college, they can't afford it. Many don't have cars. The one horse town grocery store closes at 5. They are poor and they are stuck. The loud atmosphere and fear of leaving their homes due to gunshots isn't helping. It has to stop.

Said reporter is on medical leave and her views are her own, not those of the Post-Dispatch.

Post-Dispatch editor Gilbert Bailon: “Christine Byers is a police reporter for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch who has been on FMLA leave since March. She is not involved in the Ferguson coverage while she is on leave. Her tweets are personal.”

Left that little fact out did ya? Well how convenient.

Yet more biased bullshit to fit a personal agenda.

Unfortunately, this situation is going to continue to get worse. Many have jumped to conclusions before the other side had a chance to tell their side. When it is told, they will find out that Michael Brown assaulted an officer.

This is exactly what can happen when a nations leaders nurture the lowest denominator rather than provide true leadership. We have just shown that we are no further advanced than the subhumans in the bannana republics. Eric Holder needs to get his racially biast ass back home and provide the type of support that insures a fair and unbiased investigation. Unfortunately our Attorney General has not engaged a single unbiased investigation since appointment.

8:43 nothing about my comments had anything to do with false compassion. It is absolutely true that they are poor and stuck. Destroying what little they have does NOT HELP!

Would it really hurt either side of this issue to WAIT FOR THE FRIGGIN FACTS?

There really is no prize for guessing.

Public Service Announcement said...

People don't want the facts or the truth. They want to make a hero out of Mike Brown just the same as you assholes here in Kansas City try and make Glazer out to be this wonderful person and hero. It's the same exact thing no matter what you say. It's a fact if you want to be famous and loved be a thug and a crook. A lying rat snitch doesn't seen to hurt either.

Actually the legions of race hustlers in this country would tell you that there is a VERY lucrative prize for guessing early and often.

if anyone thinks this is ABOUT mike ferguson they are wrong, mike brown was the CATALYST, but this has evolved into something much more. mike brown is irrelevant to the issue now. so all the comments of "wait for the facts" is also irrelevant. some people don't like militarized police departments.

Just what did rubes think was going to happen with the police when you've got a populace that is fully armed?

Be careful what you wish for with those virtually unfettered gun rights compared to the rest of the civilized world.

Firstly, nice original post, was that you Ernest Evans? Good job!

Bonus Points for comments of 8:34, 8:36, (first 8:44) please don't grasp at straws!, 9:18 THANK YOU!!!, 9:42 Exactly, but when one side is telling lies it's hard to stay silent, 10:20 yes that what it feels like sometimes!

Good comments

Where are your facts at you dipshit at 10:55?
Was a lawfully gun owner walking down the street in Ferguson after robbing a store?

9:41 My link to false compassion wasn't in reference to your comment.

Your comment is valid. It is a shame what has gone on far too long in the urban core. "The blame game" "the playing of the victim card"

There has been program after program (at taxpayers expense)offered to them and where are we today?

Generation after generation have felt they are entitled to what others have worked for.

We reap what we sow. Through hard work and effort we gain so much more than material gains. We establish self esteem and pride in our self and contribute to our community and society and respect others and their achievements.

I pray for the folks who are condoning this destructive behavior and those who are participating in this senseless violence.

If communities like Ferguson showed this kind of outrage every time they murdered their own their potential would be unlimited.

Watching this shit on TV and makes me wonder if none of these people have jobs? Some ass blowing a whistle all the time. While another yelling a bullhorn in front of the cameras. I bet half these jerks have a outstanding warrant out on them.

Wilson sure seems fine in the Piaget Crenshaw video following the shooting. No apparent eye socket blowout fracture (or swollen face) at that time as he paces back and forth explaining his version of the event to the other officer.

But who knows, maybe he's a real tough guy.

A lot of the troublemakers in ferguson are outsiders. They definitely need to GO HOME!

I am sure that Officer Wilson is a tough guy. He was hit so hard that the skeletal area around his eye was broken. Yet, he stayed at the scene. When a bone is broken it is painful, but people can hang in there for a little while before medical aid is given. Wilson also stayed at the scene because he could not just abandon the scene. I am sympathetic with people who live in impoverished areas, but assaulting cops doesn't help their cause.
