Think about this, thugs in Ferguson and elsewhere: Your complaints of fake injustice (IE: the complaint of the non-existent injustice of the killing of Michael Brown) will pale if the police were to withdraw from policing the inner city and allow the thugs to rule. Can you imagine the rampant and REAL injustice that would occur? Execution after execution for the weaker gangs and thugs who are subject to the rule of the stronger gangs. To a degree it already goes on and you CANNOT complain because the thug gangs make you shut up so you complain about something safe to complain about - THE MAN. Cowards, all of you because you do not complain about the real injustice. Your daddies who aren't around.

Sharpton, Holder and Jackson seem to be pushing for mob rule in the inner city. And inciting a riot has always been illegal.

It really is not complicated. If you have a family, IE: mother AND father in the home, not on welfare, it does not matter what color you are, you are not likely to have a child who is a thug who then becomes idolized because his thuggishness got him killed. Whether what officer Wilson did was reasonable, and I happen to think it was, what thug Brown did WAS NOT REASONABLE and directly INVITED what happened to him.
Of course he did everything right. Rules for thugs 101. Brown passed with flying colors. He played it by the book thinking that after he beat up Wilson he would be a hero to his friends. Well as it turns out, he did become a hero for his friends. It seems that Al Sharpton read the same book and follows the same Rules for Thugs 101.
The typically Obamaesque approach is to have an overarching Federal uniform approach to law enforcement. The problem is that the government wants robots to police the streets and the reality is that every police officer on the street is still, oh, perish the thought, a HUMAN BEING, and imperfect at that. Utopia is when there is perfection in every human being. No mistakes are ever made. No human frailty, and I am not talking about race. The problem is that this all came about because a THUG tried to beat up a police officer and take away his weapon. If Wilson had been black and Brown white, with the same result, the thug being killed, the Grand Jury would have found the same lack of grounds for a indictment but the monstrous difference is that no one would have protested. There may or may not have been a small news article in some papers and on some local news stations, but that is it. There probably would not have even been a Grand Jury investigation. Me and you would probably not even had heard about the incident. But because out of all of the blacks being killed by blacks daily, this ONE became a national cause and many people's businesses and livelihoods being ruined, mostly black. The injustice in the Brown shooting and aftermath is what the protesters and liberal media have done with it. Brown was a thug and gave up the right to control the outcome of his attack of the police officer. He thought HE was in charge and would overcome Wilson and be able to get the gun away from him. Well, he paid the price for his gamble. Sometimes you pay a consequence you did not expect, and thought would not happen because of your arrogant idiocy. Brown paid that price. He did not commit a crime that warranted death in and of itself, but in the circumstances, had he survived he would not have had the right to complain about the result because he gave up that right. It is a shame, but the bigger shame is that the supporters of the protests are not able to understand what it means to have personal responsibility. It is the pervasive decline in our society that personal responsibility no longer means anything nor does accountability. And I do not mean the accountability of officer Wilson who was not unreasonable in what he did. I mean the responsibility of people who by their protests are telling us all that blacks who commit crimes should not be held accountable for them. THAT IS THE TRAVESTY OF THIS INCIDENT.
Imagine if every unjustifiable killing by a black of a black were the basis of a protest like we saw in Ferguson. No cities or large towns in the United States would be left standing.
Then there is the question of white police officers killing blacks "justifiably." I may be wrong here, but I suspect that the times when a black is killed by a white police officer "unjustifiably" is near zero percent of the time. And from the information now made public, it does appear that both the Trevon Martin and Michael Brown cases are more easily placed in the "justifiable" rather than the "unjustifiable" categories of a white police officer (security guard in the case of the Martin case) killing a black. The thing is that I would shudder to think how many cities would be burned to the ground if EVERY unjustifiable killing of a black BY a black were subject to such protest.
As others have alluded to, there is something about the attempt of the government to restrict our freedoms. Because those in power know that the consciousness of the American people have an ingrained antipathy to tyranny, they have to constantly resort to the most subtle means for control possible because as soon as they come up with a new way of control, some firebrand comes on Fox news or Drudge and exposes the real motive and guess what... Gun sales soar yet again. Once we defeated the British saying we will not be governed by a king, it stuck. And the recent elections demonstrate that the attempt by a president to become King will not be tolerated even though he tries to guarantee his kingdom by bringing millions into the voting arena from south of the border. El Presidente has been rejected. His newest attempt to ride roughshod over the independence of the American people by becoming, in his own words, a tyrant, will, like all of his other attempts to shove his will down the throats of the American people, will come back and bite him on the a$$. And the bigger the shove, the bigger the bite. There just seems to be something in the spirit of the American people since the American Revolution that WILL NOT tolerate tyranny. FDR tried to pack the Supreme Court because they would not ratify his tyrannical programs but it did not work. Obama, who is even left of FDR, is finding that even in his unbridled arrogance (which he calls audacity) will be governed by a simple verse in the book of proverbs: Pride goes before a fall and a haughty spirit before destruction. Narcissism and its complementary trait, arrogance, accompanied with conscienceless sociopathy make for total blindness in a leader. Mr. Obama cannot do other than what he is doing because he is not aware of any thought except his own. Come January, I am hoping that a congress will finally be governed by reason, because the Obama minions of Pelosi and Reed will no longer be able to buttress the narcissist in the White House making his ability to rule by tyrannical fiat impotent. At least that is my fervent hope. Two years of impotency in the White House would be greatly appreciated. Let him veto everything that would be good for America. He will be gone in two years and then we will be able to start to rebuild what he has, like the thugs in Ferguson, burnt to the ground.
Dear Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton, Eric Holder: Why don't all of the dead blacks who are killed by other blacks mean anything to you? They are, after all, the vast majority of deaths of blacks. It is a very rare occurrence that a black is dead at the hands of a white man, yet these are the only times we hear of black deaths meaning anything. I guess for you guys, the only time that the lives and deaths of blacks have any meaning are when whites are involved. What a shame for you and the black community.
