|How police would like to see themselves…|
|How police are seen by many in Ferguson|
I have no idea what really happened the night Michael Brown was killed. I suspect very few people know. Obviously we need to find out.[Update, I have a strong suspicion he was up to no good, see below]
There is a huge mistrust of the police. Why are they often immune from liability?
Rioting and looting in response to a death like this is completely unacceptable (and self destructive).
The over the top military style police response is not helping to deescalate the situation (it is arguably making it worse).
And the media sensationalizing of it just adds fuel to the fire. And President Obama? His leadership has not been exactly helpful. Especially when he is phoning it in from Martha's Vineyard.
THIS! RT @ExurbanKevin: Out of control cops, out of control rioters, a media w/ an out of control sense of entitlement... Can they all lose?

Reason reports from Ferguson
If true this certainly lends support to the police version of events when Brown was shot.
These surveillance images were taken at a convenience store 10 min. Before #MichaelBrown was shot Sat. #Ferguson pic.twitter.com/mnReDcRfzzHugs and kisses replace teargas in Ferguson

Anyone should be able to take a picture of cops doing their official duties
Oh oh, cops stand down and looters return… (what could be the problem)
Maybe the Pentagon arming police departments is not a good thing…
