‘We Are Darren Wilson!’ Nearly All-White Group Rallies in St. Louis in Support of Ferguson Police

On Sunday, a group of 125+ gathered in St. Louis to show their support for the police officer who they insist was only doing his job when he shot an unarmed teen from the back numerous times.

The rally, held near the local news station, was aimed at showing that, despite the national outcry over the killing of Michael Brown, there is another side of the story that is not getting enough press.

“There is a great deal of support in the St Louis community, nationally, and internationally for officer Darren Wilson,” one organizer, identified as EM Baker, told the Guardian before the rally.

Others complained that the media is persecuting Wilson for doing what he had to do.

“He was doing his job,” Kaycee Reinisch said. “And now because of public uproar in Ferguson, he is being victimized. He is being victimized by the whole city, the state and the federal government.”

Supporter Dennis Maples agreed, writing on Facebook, ” Not sure why but….an 18 year old attacks a cop, gets shot and killed, suddenly the media portrays cops as being the bad guys….now cops (in general) feel they need to justify themselves!”

Many at the rally also expressed concern that this is being turned into a race issue, including the sole African-American attendee, Martin Baker.

The former GOP primary candidate pointed out that in his opinion, the Ferguson crisis was not a matter of race.

“People are too quick to play the race card,” Baker said. “Lawlessness knows no color.”

Another attendee worried that because of the riots, the nearly all-white police force – 50 out of 53 cops – will be forced to hire black cops.

“Ferguson will now be forced to hire 10 African-American police officers just because of this terrible ordeal,” said Damon Anderson. “Let the black officers see how difficult it is to try and deal with the black criminals on the beat they are patrolling.”

The rally also spurred smaller efforts in other areas, including one where supporters formed a ‘blue line’ to block a bridge at the Missouri-Illinois state line.

“Yesterday was pivotal in strengthening support for Officer Darren Wilson,” the organizers said on Facebook, clearly pleased with the show of support for the Ferguson cops. “Our local communities, state, country, and world now know that Darren has a voice. We are Darren’s voice. WE ARE DARREN WILSON!”

    Does that mean they want to shoot and kill unarmed young Black men also?

    • Lynn-Marie Papi Nilson

      You mean the young black men who go out of their way to help someone, who don’t purposely bang into you when your walking down the street and instead of saying sorry looks at you like you did something wrong…the kind that goes into a store and blatantly steals and then dares the owner to do something about it…those kind of young black men??????

      • Antonio K. Taylor

        Ok. Let’s get one thing straight. I’ve been Black 67 years. And I personally have never engaged in the type of behavior you are describing. Never! Nor have any of my friends. My parents weren’t having it. My grandparents, parents and parental figures were all educated men and women. Who stressed books, music learning about other cultures and conducting yourselves properly at all times, not just when you were around them! Are you telling me that it is your belief that all young Black people act like thugs? Really? I grew up up in Sugar Hill, right in the middle of Harlem. Then moved to Riverdale, where I had the privilege of seeing white kids get drunk and kill people on the highway, join gangs and generally act like the people you describe. But know what? Some of my best friends were from there and white. And we’re still friends today. Going on over 50 years with most of them. So don’t condemn all young Black people with a broad racist brush.

        • Lynn-Marie Papi Nilson

          I apologize Mr Taylor, your right I was being much too general..

          • Antonio K. Taylor

            Thank you for that Lynn-Marie.

          • Byron Williams

            Lynne, I applaud your. Candidness and honesty. People like you could a few and far in between.

          • Lynn-Marie Papi Nilson

            Ty..I try to remember that honesty sometimes borders on being insensitive..not easy..lol

          They are alive because even though they engaged in such behavior in their youth they were afforded the privilege of not being stopped on their way home on their street harassed and shot to death. Must be nice

          • Lynn-Marie Papi Nilson

            Oh, yea whites have it sooo easy…we can steal,beat people up ,burn down buisnesses,etc. and nothing happens to us..its a great world..

          • mov1ngon

            Exactly! Glad you finally get it. White people did exactly that and now they have USA

      • Celia Nobles

        The store clerk said Michael Brown paid for those cigars,they argued over the mess Michael made in the store. He made this statement on CNN

      • Leota Scott

        If you read the news you’d find out that didn’t happen the store didn’t call the cops, that was made up about a robbery, there was a problem at the store, who knows what but the store didn’t call the police. There was no robbery, they never arrested his friend for anything. If they were together, which they were wouldn’t they arrest the friend for the crime they committed. You tell me. Why no arrest.?

      • Leota Scott

        Has that ever happened to you or are you just repeating what you heard someone else say. All of a sudden White people know what happened. Were you there? I wasn’t, all we knew was the young man was unarmed, if he robbed or hurt or stole or murdered even, he was unarmed. You don’t shoot an unarmed man, Ever!

        • Lynn-Marie Papi Nilson

          Right you stand there and let him do what he wants cause after ,all you don’t want any riots..

      • mov1ngon

        Did that happen to you?

      • Sue

        After the shooting the police said it was not attributed to any crime. Later, after being told not to release the video they submitted it. He was charged with jay walking. To shoot an unarmed person someone needs to be in life threatening danger. The autopsy shows all twelve of the witnesses stories were correct. He was surrendering. Discrediting the witness was irrelevant. The police are trying to protect themselves. If you have any other previous crimes you are aware of they are looking for some.

    • Yolanda

      You know that’s what that means. Come on things will never change they will always believe they are superior

      • Antonio K. Taylor

        Personally I don’t care what people believe. What’s important is what I believe. But I do understand where you are coming from.

    • Celia Nobles

      Yes !

  • Stella Johnson

    I’m trying to figure out where did it say he attacked the policeman? I read he pulled the boy into the car by the neck and when he tried to get out the officer then pulled him by the shirt. So at what point did he attack the officer?

    • Tamar Auber

      According to the press conference held by the police, he was reaching into the police car. Here is a link that gives some more info: http://latest.com/2014/08/ferguson-police-trying-cover-really-happened-michael-brown/

      • stray123

        Until the DOJ is done with their investigation & or this stuff is testified in court, I don’t give a dam about what the witnesses or the police say.

      • mov1ngon

        A police car that shouldn’t have stopped

        • Lynn-Marie Papi Nilson

          Why shouldn’t they have stopped..? Should they have known the kid was aggressive?

          • mov1ngon

            Jay walking. When was the last time you were stopped for jay waking a few blocks from your house and told to get the f out the street. Being stopped for jay waking in a residential neighborhood that you live in is like being fined for having a yard sale without a permit. Your assumption that Mike reached for the gun still doesn’t justify 6 shots to subdue an aggressor. And the fact that I have to explain harassment to you tells me that suffer from cognitive dissonance.

          • carl

            I’ve gotten a ticket for jaywalking..

    • mov1ngon

      He attacked the officer with his black skin. A crime punishable by death apparently

      • Lynn-Marie Papi Nilson

        But of course this kid couldn’t have done anything wrong..he was black.

    • Lynn-Marie Papi Nilson

      Gotta watch more news..

  • Thom Lee

    I guess only the young dead man and the police officer know for sure what really happened that fateful day. Even eye witnesses if there were any aren’t always dependable. Often times multiple people seeing the very same thing at the same time give different reports of the event.

    The recording of his behavior shortly before the shooting certainly don’t show him as a person with respect for the law or other human beings. That is pretty damning in itself. I’d be hard pressed to believe his behavior was anymore in line with the police officer.

    Sadly, the behavior of many of the protestors doesn’t work in their favor either. Dr. King knew that peaceful protest got more accomplished than rioting and illegal looting. It appears many are using the death as an excuse to do whatever they want to do.

    My heart goes out to his family. It’s over for him but they have to live with it for the rest of their lives. They will be in my thoughts and prayers.

    • Jeff Greene

      One moment in time and you have professionally profiled the kid nice going Sigmund

      • Lynn-Marie Papi Nilson

        No one was watching this kid (or so he thought) he was just being himself..do you really think this was the first time the kid was in trouble?..come on now..black,white, or purple..wrong is wrong..

      • Thom Lee

        Obviously your mind is made up. It is what it is.

        • mov1ngon

          Your mind is made up. You made him a bully and a thug. No one made Wilson a killer. He fired the shots. There was no reason to stop him. Jay walking is bullshit and you know it

          • Lynn-Marie Papi Nilson

            What a crock. nobody made this kid a bully or a thug. He was eighteen, should be responsible for his actions..so he had a right to assault the cop and then run at him?? A real pillar of society..

          • mov1ngon

            Look at what you are saying. Paste the link that says he assaulted the officer and then charged at him. Again with the big black buck. Why hide behind polite statements. Just say what you really think. ..

            You yourself wouldn’t even be in this thread if Mike were white and you know it. You came on here just to sully his name any way you possibly can but it won’t work. Like I said you’re not fooling anybody with your race shades on

          • Lynn-Marie Papi Nilson

            Oh please like you haven’t made this a race issue…and I bet if this kid was white,you wouldn’t be on here telling us what a good guy he was.Clearly this kid had some problems..he wasn’t even living with his parents because of issues..and he was a thug and a bully..just watch the way he manhandled that store clerk…
            ..

          • mov1ngon

            That’s the difference between me and you. I would. All of the racism I’ve personally experienced have been pointed out to me by other whites. My perception of justice is not colored by race as is yours. But you are right about one thing. I won’t waste any more time on this because I don’t need anything from you

          • Ann Marie Brown

            @Lynn… How do you know he wasnt with his parents because of issues? Where is that link where this was posted? Is this one of your assumptions again? The only “THUG” here is the coward murdering cop Darren Wilson which doesn’t liver very far from me in Crestwood Mo.

    • cher

      Thank you! You make an excellent point in an unbiased way.

  • stray123

    Nobody knows what happened and the facts haven’t been testified in a court of law. Where did the author get the info that the boy was shot in the back? I thought the autopsy showed otherwise. A journalist shouldn’t add to all the misinformation that is out there.

    • Tamar Auber

      The link to the autopsy report was not showing. It is now. It is above, you can click it to see the details of all the shots including those that entered back-to-front.

      • stray123

        Show me any written statement from an autopsy that shows he was hit in the back. Not YOUR interpretation of a sketch. Everything I read from Browns paid analyst shows he was hit in the front. Don’t make up stuff as you go. Just stick to the fact of the story.

    • Celia Nobles

      Wilson shot an unarmed 18yr. old boy. This act is called MURDER! It doesn’t matter that he supposely “robbed” a store or smoked pot. Officer Wilson should’ve known better!

      • Dorothy Dill

        The shoplifting had NOTHING to do with the altercation between Brown and Wilson. The police.chief verified that in a press conference. Wilson stopped Brown simply because Brown was walking in the street. This character assassination is part of the problem. Officials and people should concern themselves more with the injustice of murdering the very people the police have sworn an oath to protect.

      • stray123

        Incorrect. That is not the legal definition of murder. You need to look up what it takes for ANY person to legally shoot someone. Self-defense doesn’t require the other person to be armed. The store footage has nothing to do with the shooting. The facts are not all in for you to make a decision based on the little bit that we know. Right now the witness statements are no better than the cop’s statements.

        • Thom Lee

          I believe it will come down to “stand your ground.” Major difference. A civillian can only stand their ground if somebody illegally enters their home. Police can do it anytime anywhere.

          • stray123

            Stand Your Ground has nothing to do with somebody illegally entering your home. Many SYG claims have taken place on the streets.

          • Thom Lee

            I stand corrected. I didn’t include people with concealed weapon permits in my thought. But then not every concealed weapon is legally being carried.

          • stray123

            Don’t forget legal open carry.

          • Thom Lee

            I live in a state with legal open carry. Only a couple of times has it even made the news and not in a couple years now.

            When it did it was at street fair sorts of settings. Not many people were involved though and if I remember correctly. There were no assault rifles involved just side arms.

          • stray123

            Pro Obama/pro 2nd Amend person here. I like being able to open carry, but I dislike open carry PROTESTS. Especially with rifles. Grew up in AZ where it’s no big deal to see a person walkin round with a holstered pistol.

          • Thom Lee

            I live in MI. Mostly rifles are hunting equipment here for most of my life. I live in a sub of Detroit. Also pro Obama and recently pro 2nd Amend but was never against guns.

            I’m 70 and have always for the most part been what would likely be considered a pacifist. With the way the world has changed. Our really bad employment here on nearly a daily basis seniors being attacked, home robberies, car jackings are on the news.

            I had to change my thinking and feelings. When I was young there was even honor among thieves. Women, old folks, kids were hands off. Now we’ve become the preferred targets. We’re slower and weaker than young people. A gun is an equalizer IMHO.

            There wasn’t actually a protest. But people began to open carry at major events in downtown DTW. on the riverfront. There are weekly events not to mention hockey, baseball and football games. Some of the subs have large scaled festivals.

            People who aren’t even against others having legal, registered weapons became uncomfortable with seeing and their children seeing people walking amongst them with guns. Unfortunately at these events there were a few shootings over the years and several deaths. But, those were illegal weapons being carried concealed by criminal elements.

            A concern was voiced and meetings were held. The result was, it’s legal. People who choose to open carry could. Knowing that was a possibility you cvould choose not to attend these events. End of story. Now people are up in arms (excuse the pun) because of a grocery chain (Kroger) allowing weapons in their stores. Kroger isn’t backing down and people are calling for a boycott. We’ll see how that goes. Money being #1 they may crumble.

            A side note. The Kroger nearest me has a lot of seniors shopping. We’re a long established community. It is at an intersection that makes quick getaways easy. I have sat in their lot in the shopping center and just watched the surroundings for some time. What I saw in the more distanced areas was groups of two or three young men just milling about. They were NOT there to shop. They were watching alone women and seniors. They didn’t seem to care if the woman had a small child. They didn’t hang together but were in close proximity to each other.

      • Lynn-Marie Papi Nilson

        Shouldn’t run at cops..it will get you killed no matter how big you are..kept yelling at the cop “your not going to shoot me” well, surprise..

        • Ann Marie Brown

          @Lynn at what time did he say you not gonna shot me is it when they were tussling in cops car and he was shot are was it when he turned to surrender on knees hands up don’t shoot, then 5 more shots, please tell me when all this was said by Mike to the COWARD DARREN???

      • Lynn-Marie Papi Nilson

        and it really shouldn’t matter if this kid assaulted the cop or ran at him..he’s black he can do that..

  • Jcrowell52

    Where are the tanks, rubber bullets, tear gas grenades , etc. for this public protest?

    • Lynn-Marie Papi Nilson

      They haven’t started acting like animals yet..

      • firsthand white

        Like they did at Kent state in the 70s stupid b–ch! damn right u are Darren Wilson!!

        • Lynn-Marie Papi Nilson

          Ridiculous comparison..A–hole..

      • Antonio K. Taylor

        So you’re one of those people who think African Americans are just waiting for the sun to go down so we can howl at the moon and grow tails and chase after defenseless white people? Are you kidding me? And they say Vaudeville is dead. Animals! Wonderful turn of a phrase. How original of you.

        • Lynn-Marie Papi Nilson

          Wow..you are really sensitive..I have seen white people riot and act like animals right here in my own city…do you think you black people have an exclusive on that..Thats why I said “yet”..I don’t think color has anything to do with self control..

          • Antonio K. Taylor

            There certainly is a possibility that I’m overly sensitive. But a lot of it has to do with the way segments of this society have behaved since a Black man entered the White House. Black people as a whole are sick of it.

          • Lynn-Marie Papi Nilson

            I love Obama..I voted for him twice and I would vote for him again if I could. I wish congress would have given him a chance,I think he would have done a great job..He got screwed by a lot of old white guys..

          • Antonio K. Taylor

            I can’t believe they wouldn’t pass a jobs bill. With over 70,000 bridges in this country structurally deficient and roads that are a disgrace they won’t lift a finger to get these things done. I think of all the people who would benefit. It is a shameful display of ineptitude. And congress will never live this period of obstruction down.

          • Lynn-Marie Papi Nilson

            Totally agree..their shameful..

          • Thom Lee

            I think Harry Reid is responsible for a lot of nothing happening. When there is a good bi-partisan vote. He refuses to to even bring it up. There’s plenty of blame on both sides but the majority is the GOP Tea Party people.

          • cher

            Aww, lynn-marie, I’m sorry you are so miserable in your life. So full of hate. I bet you look mean and evil, probably not attractive. Were you picked on as a child? Well I won’t interrupt you r 2 minutes of fame. I am sure in your day to day life…No one listens to you or takes you seriously anyway.

  • Dorothy Dill

    Darren Wilson is not a victim and he was not doing his job. His job is to PROTECT not to appoint himself judge, jury, and EXECUTIONER. Also, Darren Wilson is the one who made this about race because he is the one who killed a young black man without cause. Had Michael Brown been white, this never would have happened.

    • notadailycaller

      I’ll bet a White and/or female suspect would not have had to take 6 bullets.

    • Lynn-Marie Papi Nilson

      You don’t know that? You don’t really know what happened none of us do..

      • Dorothy Dill

        We KNOW Michael Brown was not armed. We KNOW Darren Wilson was armed as an officer of the law sworn to PROTECT the public which includes Michael Brown. We KNOW the only reason Wilson stopped Brown was because Brown was walking in the street. We KNOW walking in the street is not a crime punishable by death ….but even if it were….We KNOW Darren Wilson’s job does not include being judge and jury and and certainly not EXECUTIONER and yet we KNOW that Wilson chose to execute Brown when eyewitness reports and autopsy reports verify Brown had his hands in the air and was surrendering. We also KNOW that Brown will NEVER go to college as he had planned. He will NEVER get married. He will NEVER have children. We also KNOW Michael will NEVER again wrap his arms around his mother and tell her how much he loves her and likewise his mother will NEVER be able to tell her son she loves him. We KNOW Darren Wilson is responsible for that because we KNOW he shot an unarmed man who was surrendering with his hands up at least 6 times, twice being in the head. We KNOW a lot Ms. Nilsson and we certainly KNOW enough to know Darren Wilson is not the victim. Michael Brown is, as are his parents, and every person of color who has been abused and brutalized by racist police. 🙁

        • Antonio K. Taylor

          Dorothy I agree 100%. People of color understand things that a lot of people who are white will never understand. My grandfather told something he had read once and I think Mark Twain/Samuel Clemens said it, ‘a man who has had a bull by the horns knows four or five things more than someone who hasn’t’. Makes sense to me.

        • Lynn-Marie Papi Nilson

          We KNOW that Michael Brown wasn’t armed and that’s all we KNOW..We DON”T KNOW he had his arms in the air (that report came from questionable witnesses)..we don’t know what really happened neither of us were there..Autopsy DID NOT reveal that the victim had his hands in the air. If anything it may dispute the reports that he was shot in the back while trying to get away.You clearly make it up as you go along. Its a sad day any day that a parents child is taken. But as usual when someone meets a violent death you try to pretty him up..College (come on)?? This kid was clearly a BULLY and a THIEF not an altar boy.

          • mov1ngon

            Are you drowning in truth that you have to cling to lies for dear life? God help you if your life is ever reduced to 10 seconds of video tape. Are you calling his mother a liar? What about his black skin says he wasn’t going to college?

            Two bullies one victim! 1.The store owner who harassed Mike for dropping cigars 2. The cop who came down the street where Mike lived and stopped him a few blocks from his house.

            Only 1 victim and he was murdered. Killed twice. Once by Wilson and then again here by you who took his diploma and threw it in the trash because your “shades” won’t allow you to see a human.

            Do you think we are stupid or do you not know you’re saying racist *&$ t?

          • Lynn-Marie Papi Nilson

            Lets be honest no one protesting is looking for the truth to come out..The only thing that will make them happy is to convict the cop..and you really don’t care if this kid was the aggressor or not…the kid was living with his grandmother so the mother and father obviously had their own issues

          • mov1ngon

            More assumptions about people you know nothing about. You obviously don’t understand your full history so you’ll be bound to repeat it. I really don’t care about what other accusations and assumptions fall from your mouth or fingers. And don’t think I don’t notice that you just keep making things up instead of responding directly to my questions

          • Lynn-Marie Papi Nilson

            I don’t expect you to care what the truth is..all you see is a dead BLACK man..facts don’t really play into your thoughts..you don’t know the whole truth ether but you already have this cop convicted..Plays both ways..

          • mov1ngon

            At least I see a man. All you see is a criminal even though there is no evidence to support that. You’ve been on here spreading lies that you aren’t even trying to prove.

            And calling me a liar when you can’t point to a single one. If this is a race issue why do you care? Again deflect some more. It’s obvious to everyone how you see things but guess what who cares? Mike will never speak for himself so I will speak up for him. Wilson can speak for himself but the righteous coward hasn’t shown his face or spoken for himself instead he waits for kkk funding. Notice how you agree with the kkk

            http://www.blackenterprise.com/news/kkk-calls-michael-brown-shooter-a-hero-raises-money-for-defense/

          • Dorothy Dill

            Ms. Nilson, that may be all “you” know but anyone following this case is aware of much more. Regarding being shot in the back: Eyewitnesses said that he moved in a way they “thought” he “may” have been shot in the back. The boy could have tripped or stopped suddenly in a way that made his movement different and given the fact that he WAS being shot at, I can understand why witnesses would have “assumed” he may have gotten shot. However, they all agree that Michael surrendered with his hands up and the autopsy report is consistent with this. Furthermore, your characterization of a bully and a thief is insulting and rude. You talk about KNOWING things but you have NOTHING that tells you Michael was a bully or a thief except for the store video and that may not tell the whole story. You want us to give Darren Wilson the benefit of the doubt but you do not grant that to Michael. How hypocritical of you!!!!! And why are you so certain he was not going to college. Is it because he was black. That is just downright ugly for you to think and say. Perhaps you may want to read the two links I am sharing with you. The CNN story that verifies he was going to college also says that He was always there for anybody he knew. Quite frankly Ms. Nilson, that sounds like a pretty good person if you ask me. Can people say that about you. Maybe Michael Brown was really more decent than you and maybe you are the bully saying ugly things about a young man that everybody loved for very good reason. They say he had ambitions and wanted to start his own business. He insisted he wanted to make something of his life. Again it is a shame that Darren Wilson stole that from him. And one more thing that may interest you, before he was killed he posted on facebook : “If I leave this earth today, at least you will know I cared about others more than I cared about myself”. Gee Ms. Nilson, that sure doesn’t sound like a bully to me. Lastly, regardless, even if he were all that you and other prejudice bigots believe him to be, that still does not give Wilson the right to take is life. Where I come from, people who kill other people are called MURDERERS and we don’t raise money for MURDERERS 🙁

            That’s right Lynn…you can’t argue with stupidity. So you might want to keep your mouth shut because you sound ignorant.

          • Ann Marie Brown

            Right right…LMAO!!!!

          • Ann Marie Brown

            No you are so wrong the only “THUG” is the murdering cop that is no more than a COWARD to damn scared to tell his story he tells girlfriend who tells friend who calls radio station and tells this BS story, Josie her made up name said Darren told her Mike said aww you gonna shoot me go ahead shoot me running towards the cop GTFOH no black man on this earth in his right mind is gonna try to be superman and run up on a cop with gun drawn thats some BS lies!!

          • Lynn-Marie Papi Nilson

            You certainly don’t think that anyone would let Johnson make a statement at this time, it has nothing to do with him being a coward..Many witnesses saw Mike run at the officer (black people too)..Maybe he didn’t think the cop was going to shoot him..wrong….

        • Ann Marie Brown

          Dorothy….Thanks for that a person who can see thru this BS, you are so right!!!

      • Celia Nobles

        What happen? A policeman shot an unarmed,18yr.old several times! We DO KNOW THAT!!

        • Lynn-Marie Papi Nilson

          Why???? Do you KNOW that?

    • Celia Nobles

      That’s so true. Why are these people defending this killer?

  • Yolanda

    Of course they are supporting the police officer .The police is white they are white. And that is on thing white people are gonna do and that is support there own which is something not to many black people will do.we do not support each other

    • Lynn-Marie Papi Nilson

      What…then what’s all that rioting about??

    • Thom Lee

      Isn’t nobody knowing/seeing anything a form of people sticking up/covering for someone?

  • notadailycaller

    I think they left out “unarmed’ and how this young unarmed thug deserved 6 bullets.

  • Celia Nobles

    Just goes to show you racism is alive and thriving in America

    • Dorothy Dill

      You are sadly sooooo right about that Ms. Nobles…and it is very UGLY….and sadly, I personally think it is getting worse and not better 🙁

    • Thom Lee

      I believe that can be expanded to. Discrimination of all sorts being alive and thriving.

  • clenatti

    luckily St. Louis is so well segregated that most white people only encounter black people on the TV news

    • Thom Lee

      That’s just sad. It means both sides are missing out on some great people.

      • clenatti

        it’s very sad. If you get to know people you realize that you have more in common than you think. If you get to know people you share common experiences and common values. your neighbors are your neighbors, and you look out for them.

  • NurseCJ

    Why are they worried about the city hiring black cops?” Let the black cops see how difficult it is to deal with black criminals”! How racist! A criminal is a criminal no matter what color.! Some white people will support anything a white person does as long as it is against a black. White boys steal, kill and Rob but never shoot down in the street! They would be more outraged if it was a black man killing a DOG!!!

  • Connie Styles Graham

    Will the truth ever come out of the town. Why would he charge at a police officer who is shooting his gun….I guess you don’t think we have common sense…

    • Thom Lee

      Connie, you generalized your statement with “we have no common sense. ” We would mean the collective black community. I’m sure you’d agree that in any community there are people with no common sense.

      • Connie Styles Graham

        Mis understanding..I was being sarcastic about the term common sense. We all have common sense from one degree to another. I meant if anyone really thinks someone would bum rush anyone with a loaded gun firing it directly at them.

        • Thom Lee

          Sorry about the misunderstanding. I’m one of those bottom line people who says what they mean and means what they say. That makes me take what I read or hear literally. Gotta stop doing that.

  • Sue

    When he was shot the police said it was not connected to a crime. Later a video of the burglary was released which had nothing to do with the shooting. They showed it even though they were given orders not too. In their autopsy they wrote he was on marijuana, no other autopsy showed this, even though the police officer would not have known this. He was charged with jay walking. The autopsy follows the story of all twelve of the onlookers. He had raised his arms in the air. There was no one in imminent danger except for this young man. I wonder what their reaction would be if this teen would have been white? Sadly, racism is everywhere.

  • Sue

    Mike was charged with jay walking. When the officer shot the teen he was unaware of this crime. Police even said in the beginning it was not associated with any crime. The media has hurt Mike more than this officer. They are giving out irrelevant information about his character, that had nothing to do with the shooting. http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc/ferguson-police-name-michael-brown

    I got a revolutionary idea. Let’s free all of you Blacks from us White racists and have the government give each of you $100,000 to move back to Africa permanently. That way you Blacks won’t have to deal with the evil White man keeping you down. It couldn’t be more obvious that this Jewish promoted cultural Marxist garbage has been a huge failure.

    Either that or you can move to Israel since the Jews seem to love multiculturalism so much. They love it so much they promote it only in White countries but cage and mistreat Black migrants that try to enter the Jewish state.

    Visit my site at dailyslave.com – Tamar seemed to enjoy my work so I’m sure all of you will enjoy it as well. 🙂

    • cher

      Well dailyslave, how about you pay us $100,000 since you owe us for free labor from slavery. Then pay the the mexicans $100,000 for using them. And finally pay the American Indians for stealing their land in the first damn place and bringing over your nasty small pox. We all know how good you are at destroying things. Last but not least…go jump off of something but not before you throw your family off first.

      • dailyslave

        I don’t owe you nothing. Your ancestors who were slaves are dead. You are the furthest thing from a slave – in fact as a Black in America you have special rights. You are able to get jobs even if you are not qualified for them simply because you have Black skin. And despite that you Blacks still cry about racism. I’m quite frankly sick of it.

        Whites created this nation and the vast majority of the innovations you enjoy today. If you are thinking of people who destroy things you should be looking at the Jews not Whites. Jews are the ones that have pushed us into all of these insane wars that have killed millions of people.

        The fact that you wish death on me and my family shows that your entire argument is intellectually bankrupt.

        • cher

          First of all, the “original whites” on the mayflower were crooks, thieves, and rapist. That is why they were exiled in the first place. Now I realize that I am now commenting back and fourth with an uneducated racist, which for me is no fun. Can’t battle it out with a person lack intelligence. What you said in both comments made absolutely no sense. You really think affirmative action is the cure all…haha! Stupid! You are not benefiting from your ancestors?…I done. Thanks for the laugh.

          • dailyslave

            When in doubt just call someone racist. That’s really the only argument you people have, just to cry “racist” over and over. Again I encourage you to move to Africa where you won’t be oppressed by the evil White man.

          • cher

            Lol…when I get my $100,000 you moron. Not going to debate about anything that I have commented on. Maybe it’s because I am right. I would tell you to leave the country but we both know white Americans are hated by most outside of the US. Hum, I wonder why…lmao!

        • cher

          And we won’t discuss how many inventions were stolen…oops, I mean created by whites.

        • clenatti

          if you’re a young black man in America, you have the right to be stopped, frisked and questioned for no apparent reason. You have the right to be shot dead for jaywalking. You have the right to go to prison for crimes like possession of small amounts of marijuana that a white person would never even be charged for. You have the right to spend the rest of your life in prison for the crime of being the wrong color in our white society.

    • clenatti

      better yet, why don’t we drop the hypocrisy and just imprison every young black male in America when they turn 13. They all must be guilty of something, otherwise why would so many of them be in prison?

  • Daron Nelson

    how do u shoot and kill and unarmered anything? and ur just doing your job. ha really?

  • Daron Nelson

    why do people continue to use such general statements when talking about races of people. It is the very seed of racism. And has been proven to be wrong about a trillion times over. But some people choose to hold on to that. People get over it!

  • Ronda

    DON’T YOU JUST LOVE WHITE GUILT? Too Bad the Dead Black Children in Chicago doesn’t bring the ratings for the SELF-RIGHTEOUS, WHITE GUILT MEDIA OUT THERE. I Love It. Watching the White Guilt Media, climbing all over themselves to prove that they really care about that Dead Black “Gentle Giant” lying in the street. Good for them though when Anderson, Wolf, Jake, Matt, Diane, and the rest of the White Guilt “Journalist” are done reporting from the poor, run down, black neighborhoods, they get to go home to their WHITE ONLY, 25 Million Dollar, Gated Community Mansions and Thank God for their White Privilege.

  • Ronda

    I wonder how many unarmed Black Men have been gunned down by the illegals I’m sure you love so much.

  • coop

    Its all really sad either way.but ok the cop felt like his life was in danger..lets face it most people who arnt black are afraid of black people.he was a big buy..sure..but how did he get the lable bully..oh I guess the same way hes wasn’t going to college…even tho they kinda mentioned it quit a few times on the news….so why couldn’t they shoot the stupid bully in the knee and let us see if he would have been a productive member of society….
