SORT BY Relevancy
There have been several police involved indicents that have taken place recently that has called into question if the police performing a public service. It is a little known fact that the police are not here to stop crimes even though when the situation calls for it law enforcement will lay down their lives for the public. There are few times I believe where the people who police detain, question, or interrogate are innocent. The Michael Brown situation is tragic but he was not as innocent as everybody was trying to protray. Let's discuss this case along with others to get a true prospective of why they end the way they do.

“I could see so vividly what was going on because I was so close,” said Johnson, who said he was within arm’s reach of both Brown and the officer when the first of several shots was fired at the teen. Johnson says he feared for his life as he watched the officer squeezing off shot after shot.
Our President stated, “We should comfort each other and talk with one another in a way that heals, not in a way that wounds. Along with our prayers, that’s what Michael and his family, and our broader American community, deserve.” I wondered to myself “Is he angry?” I thought “Did the President have the conversation he suggested with his own family? with his own cabinet?” Did he explain to his girls what happened to Mike Brown and more importantly why?
This is by no means a slight of the office, but I asked myself “What would I do if I was president of the United States and I heard that a young black man was slain by a police officer…..again…. in 2014?” I guess I would start by actually having the conversation with white people, specifically, those in power.

Ferguson, Missouri (CNN) -- After another night of protests in Ferguson, Missouri, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has approved a second autopsy on the body of Michael Brown, the Justice Department said Sunday.
The autopsy will be conducted by a federal medical examiner, Justice Department spokesman Brian Fallon said in a statement.
"Due to the extraordinary circumstances involved in this case and at the request of the Brown family, Attorney General Holder has instructed Justice Department officials to arrange for an additional autopsy," the statement said.
"This independent examination will take place as soon as possible. Even after it is complete, Justice Department officials still plan to take the state-performed autopsy into account in the course of their investigation."
"If I had been told to get out of the street as a teenager, there would have been a distinct possibility that I might have smarted off," Paul writes. "But, I wouldn't have expected to be shot."
