I'd say this manufactured "situation" was designed to keep people voting for Democrats in the upcoming election. Holder and co. would like to keep this thing hot through November. FYI, a black cop shot an unarmed white "child" in Salt Lake City about the same time. Wonder if Eric is heading that way to clear things up? Will Obama make a speech about it? Will whites riot? Curious readers want to know. KenC

The Great Racial Disconnect on Police

I sort of like the phrase "strong-arm" robbery. We say armed robbery when the robber has a weapon. Strong-arm makes clear that there is not an actual weapon but that the robbery involved physical force. KenC

I can't even believe you wrote this sentence: "The only way to do that is to focus on the fact that police have no excuse to shoot anyone unless those people are committing criminal acts...." Police should not be shooting anyone even if they are "committing criminal acts". They should only be shooting anyone if that one is an immediate danger to the policeman himself or to the community. KenC
Yup, the feds have rushed in....but not to take the high ground. They want to take all of the ground. They, in fact, would like to grind the local and state authorities right out of the picture. Holder would like to guarantee that this IS a racial incident. That way he can push his only agenda: Race, race, race!!! KenC

In Ferguson, a Race to be Wrong

Yup, a lynching in the making. There isn't an issue in the world that racist Holder wouldn't blame on racism. There is never any question that Holder will not exploit any situation to blame whitey, or at least get a few billion bucks in extortion money from a "white" corporation to help out black causes if no black riots are on the horizon. Holder gives everyone a lot of confidence that justice will be done. No? KenC

Asking the police to do deep analysis to determine "good" protesters from "bad" protesters on a case by case basis in the middle of the night and not do so without questioning them or briefly detaining them is an enormous, impossible task, given time and manpower restrains. Stossel and his liberal allies need to give the cops a break on this issue. No wait, Stossel, the small-government guy, would call in the feds to carry out this task, or better still, call in government spies to do secret background checks on everyone present. Great ways to solve the problem. KenC

Stossel needs to examine the circumstances, not just throw out statistics and then draw rather stupid conclusions. KenC

" Too often, panicked or angry cops pump multiple rounds into already-wounded suspects, as appears to have happened to Michael Brown." "--Yes, centuries of white people abusing the civil liberties of blacks have left many blacks resentful of police power, and in recent years, white police officers have shot, on average, two young black men every week." Stossel, the above two statements by you are you jumping to conclusions and making insinuations not warranted by the known facts. In the first instance you have no idea of the facts. In the second, you quote raw police statistics without looking behind them to make the insinuation that cops are the ones responsible for black resentment. I could go on to point out how rediculous your assumptions are, but that would only put me in the same boat as you--i.e. making foolish assumptions. KenC

Is Ferguson Our Future?

I was there. Detroit never really recovered. Stores that served the inner city didn't come back. The city has had an annual ritual of burning down houses once a year ever since. Detroit had and still has a lot of problems, but the riots set the city on a downward spiral. KenC
You are right. The NYTimes editorial what is known as a backhanded acknowledgement of Democratic Party sin. While it sort of, kind of condemns the conduct of the special prosecutor, it roundly slams Perry. Still, I'm sure the grey lady knows well that if this kind of indictment could actually hold any water, then the federal Justice Department , Holder and the President would all be far more guilty than Perry. Take for example, "if Congress doesn't pass an immigration bill that I like, I'll simply open the door to even more illegal immigrants." KenC
But don't forget, what's good for the goose is good for the ganda. How about an indictment for President O himself for threatening to open the border to anyone at all if Congress doesn't approve an immigration policy he likes? KenC
