    I'm glad that the FBI is taking a looking into the events that are unfolding in the city of Ferguson. There needs to be a third party, who will review if any Civil Rights violations actually took place during the shooting. For anyone who hasn't lived in the St. Louis or the inner cities particularly in the South, there is a history of negligence towards social-justice.

    Your stereotypes seem to be evidence of your belief system - not those whom you hate

    Could you please name even one person in Utah who believes in "emptying your clip into folks" (besides the person who recently shot the Utah Valley Sgt. Cory Wride)

    "emptying your clip into folks amrmed or not" is complete nonsense and I ask you to please provide evidence that this is the "popular" thing to do by police. The ONLY people who DO empty their clips into folks are the bad guys - the gangs and the dealers.

    @ Happy Valley Heretic:

    You claim that in Utah "emptying your clip into folks, armed or not, is becoming more popular". If that is actually the case, then naming several recent incidents should be easy to do. So please enlighten us as to those involved and when these supposed clip-emptying cases took place.

    Or is this incident just an excuse for another unsubstantiated liberal ranting?

    Then maybe a trip to Utah to see why emptying your clip into folks, armed or not, is becoming more popular, it's like they've takin a page from G. Gordon on saving the state the money of a trial.

    It's still difficult to understand why these self-ordained civil rights "leaders" don't get upset and involved when Blacks are being murdered almost daily by other Blacks in cities like Chicago and Philadelphia. According to this obvious double standard, when Blacks kill other Blacks, it's no big deal. It's just the way it is. They and the media simply look the other way and almost nothing is ever said and done.

    But if a White person should be involved with the killing of a Black, that is totally unacceptable to the nth degree by all of Black society. It's even used as an excuse for substantial civil disobedience and to commit multiple felonies, including destroying personal property, stealing and looting. And that's supposed to be done in the name of justice?
    Even the NCAA, and sometimes even the president of the United States gets involved in those cases, but literally never whenever a Black is the perpetrator against either Blacks or Whites. Aren't those deaths just as tragic?

    A life is a life no matter who takes it. And a murder is a murder no matter who commits it.
    A complete double standard!

    Of course the FBI is going to investigate. The FBI has become unbelievably political and politically correct. This is no surprise.
