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
