Death of a Teenager

Since you admit you do not know the details of this event, why are you saying that Brown "needlessly died a violent death". You must admit that you do not know the circumstances that lead to the shooting. Back off entirely or just keep putting your two cents in. Your choice. You might want to consider that this young man was not a teenager. At 18, you become an adult who is responsible for all actions. You can sign contracts, enlist in the military, vote in all elections. Given the size of this man, it begs credulity to describe him as a "teenager". The reason that the name of the police officer was not released is quite simply that his life would be (and now is) in danger from the rabid reaction that has been encouraged by the race panderers such as Jesse Jackson. The reason that all the details were not provided instantly is that it takes time to put together all the witness stories and the evidence. It would have been irresponsible to start putting out half truths and incorrect information. Calling in Eric Holder was absolutely unnecessary and contributed to confusion and anger. Had the community let the police investigate the entire set of events, this could have been just another simple police shooting with the outcome decided on the evidence. To imagine that police are running around looking for young black men just to shoot them is the most egregious of racists attitudes put forth by agitators who have flooded the streets. Many of these trouble makers have come from far away to get in on the "fun" of looting and burning, protesting something that didn't happen the way it has been portrayed. Let the truth come out. Your column does nothing to contribute to that truth. (By the way. Officer Wilson is in hiding and in fear for his life. We do know that he is an officer with a spotless record.)
The pro-life person was a student? If so, yes she had a right to be there. As for violence. I wonder if the professor realizes just how violent an abortion (i.e. death) is to the baby?
The column says "teenager" as if this were just an innocent boy. At 18 he became an adult - a man. He may have been unarmed when he was shot, bu stop trying to portray him as a "boy". He was more than six feet tall, weighed near 300 pounds and was legally a man. A man, by the way, who had just strong arm robbed a convenience store. Bring a little balance to the story. Are there questions about his death? You bet. But it doesn't help to try to prejudice the public with well meaning, but misleading information.
I believe that withdrawing funding from that office was well within the powers granted to Perry as Governor of Texas. Sadly, he was attempting to get Ms. Lehmberg to resign. Had she done so, the matter would have been quietly dealt with. She chose to further embarrass herself with this ridiculous lawsuit. Thereby proving that "Democrat" (i.e. Liberalism) is a mental disorder.
No judge who has any awareness of the gubernatorial powers of Texas should deign to hear such a charge. He should sanction Ms. Lehmberg for bringing such a patently ridiculous charge before the court. She is a lawyer who should know better and her charges are the abuse of power.
It is my understanding that Perry has the power to do what he did and so acted legally and within the powers of his office. End of story. The "lady" who behaved in such an unprofessional way (I've seen the video) should be hiding her head in shame after resigning her office and apologizing to the public. That this bag of dirt would turn around and try to make this an abuse of power by Perry is pathetic. No judge should hear this. Of course, you can bet that some liberal will take up the cause because that's what liberals do. The left is expert on government overreach.
Still laughing at this brilliant column. Your point is astoundingly well made. I just hope that there are many many people who read and understand it. Going to keep laughing so I don't cry.

18 years old makes him an adult according to the law. He is no longer a child and can vote, sign contracts and join the military without permission. He is now responsible for his acts in a way that a "child" is not.

As usual, Obama just had to put in his two ignorant cents in. The man just can't help himself. IF he sees a chance to fan the fires of imagined racism he puts both feet in his mouth and makes stupid comments. He does not know what happened in Ferguson any more than any of us who were not there know. Yet he makes remarks that are bound to add to the bad feelings against the police and to muddy the waters as to what actually did happen. Maybe someone ought to address the irresponsibility on the part of the so-called president. He might have eased the situation by telling everyone that it was important to remain calm and wait until all the facts were available before jumping to conclusions. He might have warned that looting and destroying private property was unlawful and inappropriate a response to a lack of knowledge. He might have just said, "Wait until we really know what happened. Justice will be done, but you first need to know what went on." Did he do any of that? Did he even keep his mouth shut? Nope. Had to make things worse.
What about the Full Faith and Credit part of the Constitution? If she had not had a legal carry permit, maybe. Maybe. But she did have one. As a crime victim, she had every right to obtain protection for herself I hope that there is a way for her to establish her innocence. It is well known that New Jersey trolls for anyone out of state that might look like a hunter or who might be a contract worker come in from another state. They know perfectly well, that it will be an easy bust on gun charges. Never mind the Second Amendment. Never mind the Full Faith and Credit clause. This woman deserves to be let go and all charges dropped.
