if “resisting arrest” is a big deal? I say it is a huge deal. I was brought up in a world of respect for all people, especially for the elders. And the Police and Fire departments were to be more respected than the elders! Therefore in my opinion, if you choose to resist arrest, all bets are off!

That anyone lumps them together solely because the victims were black and the police officers were not is, well, racist!

Brown attacked a policeman. Garner did not. Brown asked for what he received. Garner did not. The policeman attacked by Brown had cause to fear for his life. When an unarmed man attacks someone he knows has a gun and then goes for the gun, someone is going to die. The policemen in Garner’s case were not attacked.

I believe the policemen in Garner’s case did use excessive force, and although I can’t say because I present with the jury, I believe I would have voted for an indictment. There is still no evidence, however, that the incident was racially motivated.

It’s unconscionable that this author and the media in general keeps fanning the flames of racism to increase their bottom line!

Malcontents who want to riot without facts should be in jail. The athletically inclined are always armed and rest of us depend on guns or other manufactured weapons for self defence.

Nope. Not going to ever happen while the people refuse to acknowledge and then address the issues in their community first. Look at Charles Barkely, he spoke the truth and now is being pillared as an ‘oreo’, an ‘uncle tom’, or as a ‘house n#%%#$’. No wonder the kids in these communities end up dead.
