Shocked we haven't explored all things related to this case on this message board yet.  I'd been consciously avoiding media coverage of this case from onset until this weekend.  I spent some time assessing different on-site live feeds and have read a couple of different articles since.  What are your thoughts on this case?  What role if any do you think media personalities, specifically musicians with socially conscious infused messages, should play in these proceedings? 

 

 -- I isolate musicians in this question because of the nature of this message board and because it's been a common question amongst those, such as myself, who question the role that media personalities in general do and should play during times like these.

All cops need to be wearing cameras that record everything they do. Maybe they can buy a little less military style toys and they'll have enough to cover the cost. That won't stop them from being total pricks but it will a Great Leap Forward.

I like this idea.  Some ex-military are saying they never got that strapped to go into a warzone letalone Missouri.  If they had fewer super vehicles, armor, and weapons, they could easily afford it.

What you want us to say? This not our first rodeo and probably won't be the last...

1964 riot un armed black man beaten
1987 Tampa riot handicapped black man killed
1992 Rodney King riot (on video) brutally beaten
2009 Oscar Grant case unarmed fatally shot by BART pd
2014 Eric Garner un armed died in choke hold
2014 Armand Bennett un armed shot and killed
2014 Mike Brown un armed shot and killed
2014 Ezell Ford shot here in L.A recently unarmed and mentally disabled


Just a few known cases. There are plenty of stories of unarmed blacks beaten or killed by police all while complying.

I think athletes, rappers and other celebs who have spoken out have not really captured how people in Ferguson really feel. They are only trying to speak and diffuse something that I really doubt can be.

In the last couple of months police have killed at least four unarmed black men. You tell me.......,


It's a wonder we say... 1 2 3

the fact that the cigars are brought up by anyone when mentioning the killing makes me laugh smh, hell the gas we pump is stolen as was this country.... none of this is anything new, al sharpton will show up with a perm screaming with a suit on... and my people will march for justice but never give each other justice and continue go to the problem for the solution, it will be all over the media and news (while the whole world is watching) while legislation taking away americans rights is being passed and innocent people get bombed in other countries... and 3 months later my people will be going crazy in front of a tv passing weed around...hopefully one day it will all end and i can fly off into the sunset with 100 bad bitches on a plush ufo...

 

but check this out its hilarious... look how much the cop has had raised for him haaaaaa

Wow, I followed your link. And this is the first thing I read on there. Can't tell if serious or not because it's too ridiculous.

This interview should probably be in cringe worthy. Watch how the Fox News cunt reporter manipulates the conversation to try and get the interviewee, Trayvon Martins father to suggest that 1) Jesse Jackson is inciting the violence and that 2) we don't know the facts yet and that the cop is really not guilty of much.

These cops are uneducated and untrained to these types of situations. But they got big guns and have watched a lot of Rambo.

If you're trivializing what's happening in Ferguson today by suggesting that because our nation's history is replete with both isolated and institutional cases of overt racism and excessive force against the Black race that this should be but a mere blip on our consciousness, you Miss Stress are a part of the problem that has allowed for this menace to persist.

What kind of stupid fucking people donate 200 000 dollars to a racist murderer to "support" him. That's the worst thing I've seen all day. I think that people saying "SMH" is overused.... but SM fuckin' H.

support for his legal fund, when he hasn't been arrested or charged with anything, and probably won't be.  go figure.

And um, you realize they just killed another dude.


I had heard about it the other day briefly, but it was dismissed as it was said the man, black, in furguson was mentally ill, brandishing a weapon.


Please watch this video. Wow.



No words can describe this video.

i don't think this child should've been murdered, but let's not forget:

 

1). he was engaged in a strong-armed robbery

2). he tried to get the cops gun (wrestled for it) and has a gunshot to the top of his head- what position will someone be in to get such an injury?

3). his friend (the eye witness) can no longer be trusted

4). new eye-witness didn't see hands up (ooppps)
