    It's a very popular clip over at Stormfront. And Fox news seems to love this guy.

    I could only watch for a minute but it seemed he was basically saying "you're wrong for having the feelings you do, you should think and feel the way I do".

    Oh bollox. He's DARING to challenge this madness and telling his community to stop the victim mentality to justify their bad behaviour. Where's the outrage, looting, rioting when people are shot dead in cold blood every single day and where are the Jesse Jacksons and Al Sharptons telling people to STOP. And where's Obama?

    Police are supposed to protect the population, not shoot them in cold blood for no reason. That's the difference between these cops or Zimmerman's "neighbourhood watch" shootings and regular idiots taking each other out.

    Black people should stop being so uptight about being stopped and frisked, and being shot by cops for being black. I mean, whats wrong with constant harassment based on your skin color? Black people basically should stop being so....black.

    Fine. Let the rioters continue to burn and loot their own neighbourhoods. That sends a very powerful message for sure. It won't reinforce any negative racist stereotypes at all.

    Thank you for posting this! Maybe my opinion doesn't count since I'm white, but I'm tired of the mentality that just because people feel that they've been wronged, that they can go out and wreak havoc on an entire community.

    I feel terrible for what happened to that young man, but does that mean that all of those property owners should have THEIR rights violated? I'm not sure how anyone can call rioting justice.

    BTW, the property owners who suffered damage, will not be indemnified by their insurance companies. I saw on another site that people felt that there was "no damage done since they have insurance" Bull shit, Riot and Intentional Acts are almost always excluded as a cause of loss.

    Not everybody out there protesting is rioting. There are always some bad apples. But showing only the rioters makes for good TV and allows people to dismiss the justifiably angry as animals who deserve to be treated the way the power structure frequently treats them.

    I agree, there are plenty of peaceful protests going on. There is one going on in my city right now. More than 100 turn out for Des Moines rally on Ferguson decision | Local News - KCCI Home

    I don't dispute or deny that many in the US black community have a lot to be angry and frustrated about. There is still a lot of institutional racism in society at large and there's no doubt it has a very negative and corrosive impact. Maybe we whiteys are reaping what we've sown. Dunno. But there must be a better way of dealing with this? Or am I naive, idealistic fool?

    I'm black and I'm angry. I'm praying for God to remove my horrible thoughts, but I cannot help but wish that Wilson dies soon, and painfully too. Will it solve anything? No. But it's what I feel right now. I grew up in Rizzo's Philadelphia. Rizzo was the scum of the earth when he was a cop, and even worse when he became mayor. He called black people animals, and was responsible for a lot of animosity between blacks and Italian-Americans in South Philly. He loved raiding the gay bars and bash guys heads in.

    Just watched a clip of Wilson with Stephanopoulos. He has no remorse whatsoever.

    I've seen a stupid number of cruel, crude remarks about the protests tonight on Facebook, and it just breaks my heart. Name calling, "run them over with your car", and worse. People are standing up for something they believe in and as far as I an tell, there isn't much "rioting" going on (at least in Michigan). I disagree with the actions that Ferguson residents took, with the burning/looting/destruction but I can't disagree with the protesters.

    The sad thing is it wasn't ferguson residents doing the looting - it was out of towners looking for trouble. It's a damn shame what happened there.

    There was a shooting of 12 year old in Cleaveland, Tamir Rice...news is now reporting he is a "young male" in order to
    justify the killing for people who are not interested in searching and finding out what the real story is that a cop shot a
    kid down because he had a "gun"...really!!! He is 12 years old!!!! How threatening can he be...

    The 14 Teens Killed by Cops Since Michael Brown

    The 14 Teens Killed by Cops Since Michael Brown

    Tamir Rice

    Tamir Rice wasn’t yet a teenager when he was killed on November 22 in a Cleveland, Ohio park. The 12-year-old boy was shot by a police officer after brandishing what turned out to be a BB gun. A call made to police beforehand described Rice as “a guy with a pistol” on a swing set, but said it was “probably fake.” When officers arrived at the scene, they say Rice reached for his toy, though did not point it at them, prompting a first-year policeman to fire two shots at the Rice from a short distance.

    On Monday night, as the Brown indictment verdict was announced, a local councilor summed these up without getting tangling in blame and legalities:

    "Perhaps, after our analysis, we learn that the police officer really did fear for his life and did everything right under the circumstances,” City Councilman Jeffrey Johnson said at a meeting. “But there is something fundamentally broken in our system when a young man can have a legal BB gun, and by the end of that day be killed by a Cleveland police officer.”


    Cameron Tillman

    On the evening of September 21, police were called to check on reports of trespassers with weapons going into an abandoned home in Terrebonne, Louisiana. Cameron Tillman, a 14-year-old boy was shot dead on the scene by a sheriff’s deputy. His brother, who was there, said he was shot opening the door and was unarmed, but the police said he was armed and that a gun was recovered near his body. It was later reported that the weapon was a BB gun that appeared to be a .45-caliber pistol. The The cop was not named, but was identified as an African-American veteran of the division with no prior infractions.

    VonDerrit Myers Jr.

    VonDerrit Myers Jr. was shot in the head in early October not far from where Michael Brown died two months earlier. The 18-year-old was shot six or seven times in the Shaw neighborhood of St. Louis after an off-duty police officer fired at him 17 times. Police say Myers charged at the policeman, they wrestled, and then he shot at least three bullets before his gun jammed. Myers had been out on bail in a gun case, but his family claimed he was unarmed and holding only a sandwich in his hand. That night, a crowd of 300 gathered at the scene, and violence broke out: gunshots echoed and police vehicles were damaged. The officer who shot Myers was identified as Jason Flanery, a 32-year-old white patrolman.

    Laquan McDonald

    After a tire-puncturing spree in late October, 17-year-old Laquan McDonald was shot dead by a police officer in Chicago. Officers reported to a call about someone breaking into cars in the Archer Heights neighborhood. The teen refused to drop his knife, according to officers, fixed them with “a 100-yard stare,” and walked toward them. That’s when a cop fired at McDonald, killing him.

    Carey Smith-Viramontes

    Few details have been revealed about the shooting of an 18-year-old girl in Long Beach, California last week. Officers were responding to a report of a missing juvenile girl, and found her in the house of Carey Smith-Viramontes. According to police, Smith-Viramontes was armed with a knife and was shot dead by an officer on the scene.

    Jeffrey Holden

    An 18-year-old was killed by police officers after opening fire on a cop with two guns in Kansas City in late October. Jeffrey Holden had reportedly been shooting at houses and passersby before the authorities arrived at the scene. he was listed as a missing person and had two outstanding warrants.

    Qusean Whitten

    Two armed robbers were killed after holding up a Dollar General Store in Columbus, Ohio in October. Eighteen-year-old Qusean Whitten had jumped from the car he was using to flee the scene and started running when police opened fire.

    Miguel Benton

    In early October, 19-year-old Miguel Benton managed to steal an officer’s gun and shoot him twice. Two cops were transporting Benton and another inmate to jail on drug and robbery charges in Georgia when the incident occurred. Another officer shot and killed Benton.

    Dillon McGee

    Eighteen-year-old Dillon McGee of Jackson, Tennessee, died after being shot by police officers who claim he was attempting to run them over in a car. On September 26, officers were targeted after approaching a car, driven by McGee, and fired at the driver. McGee was the father of a one-month-old son.

    Levi Weaver

    A man welding a baseball bat and a kitchen knife lunged at police officers in his home in Georgia, and was fatally shot in late September. According to the sheriff, 18-year-old Levi Weaver begged the officer to shoot him, and then leapt at him. The officer shot Weaver twice.

    Karen Cifuentes

    A 19-year-old woman was killed in September after an undercover police watched a drug deal go down in Oklahoma City. One of the suspects got in a car driven by Karen Cifuentes and took off, apparently hitting one of the officers who fired then opened fire and killed her.

    Sergio Ramos

    In August, an 18-year-old was shot and killed by a Dallas police officer after a car crash in a parking lot near a Walmart store. According to police, Sergio Ramos had just robbed a killed an associate when he was confronted by an off-duty cop, reached for the gun in his shorts, and was shot multiple times.

    Roshad McIntosh

Police say he pulled a gun on them, but his family claimed that McIntosh was kneeling on the ground with his hands in the air. Nearly a month later, his mother brought another protest to city hall, demanding answers in her son’s killing.

    Diana Showman

    A mentally ill woman brandishing a power drill was shot dead by an officer after she called 911 and told San Jose dispatchers she had an Uzi. Diana Showman, 19, had come out of her house, ignored demands to put down the weapon, and was shot once. Showman’s parents criticized the officer’s response, saying that the police needed to be better equip to handle mental health issues.
