Cowards shoot from concealment of a crowd, whether it be in Afghanistan, the Gaza Strip or Ferguson, MO. They are cowards because they use other protestors as shields from possible return gun fire.

Cowards also act violently amongst the large number of other radicals who are hell-bent on destruction rather than a peaceful resolution; again, whether it be in Afghanistan, the Gaza Strip or Ferguson, MO.

Focus on behavior, not ethnicity. This isn't a black-white issue. This is about a huge, strong assailant who attempted to disarm a police officer while he was seated inside his patrol car. The assailant happened to be an 18 year old black man and the police officer happens to be a white man.

Now, focus on the timing and circumstances of the deadly force used by the police officer - period.

All LEOs believe in accountability, regardless of rank. The general public needs to hold the decedent accountable for his actions, as well as reviewing the FACTS of the deadly force

I just heard on FOX News Radio that there are doubts that Officer Wilson will get fairly investigated by the DOJ. They were talking on the radio that some one the investigators or Attorneys that work in the Crime Unit of the DOJ that are doing the investigation have extensive history being anti-Police. They were also reporting that some have even leaked confidential information to media during high profile federal cases and lied to a federal judge about doing it and none have ever received any type of reprimand from the Attorney General.
