GWEN IFILL: (snip) "But also more important is watching what's happening behind it. There's a new civil rights movement which has sprung up. We've been looking back 50 years for the last couple of months, the 50-year signings of bills and laws. These young people on the streets, these young people who've created a social media movement around Michael Brown, they're not saying, "Pass a law." They're saying, "Enforce the current ones."
They're not saying, "We're going to wait for a single, singular leader to tell us which way to go." They're saying, "We're going to lead ourselves." And there is something which we can't miss in what feels different to me than Trayvon Martin, it feels different to me than Rodney King; these are all situations in which justice was questioned. But it feels to me like Americans, not just African Americans, are picking themselves up and saying-- the first pictures we saw out of Ferguson, the common response was, "Is that America?" And I think people are saying, "Let's address that. Let's address ourselves, not expect some person to figure it out."

Gwen Ifil, formerly of ABC, used the pronoun “we” when referring to democrats. Faux pas! She was caught telling the truth on national tv. She made a career move to NPR where the veneer of objectivity is so much thinner.

OK-Ask one of these brilliant scholars to please NAME the 'CURRENT LAWS' which they think HAVE BEEN IGNORED. They have NO conception of laws currently on the books or otherwise, or they would not so freely and recklessly ignore them.
I will bet you everything I own, they have NO CLUE what they are saying and cannot articulate their grievance beyond “Enforce the ‘current ones’”
They are all idiots if they think they are being dis-served or exploited.
I AM SO SICK OF THIS!!!!! Since we are NOT all criminal lawyers and DO NOT legislate, the LAW is, guys, when a police officer asks you to stop... whether you like it or not, you ‘stop’. You don't get yourself shot then cry wolf!

Excellent point, Steve! Gwen Awful is a loon with selective self-rightousness, having unleashed her inner racist cow core, under the fascist Obama regime.
Ms. Awful would never equate looting, burning, pillaging and destroying with lawlessness, if the perps are black and pi$$ed. Righteous anger, don’t you know.
But let a black thug amazon rough up a cop, go for his holstered gun, lose that struggle and run, then turn and charge a now standing but injured cop rather than freeze, Ms. Awful dares to discuss use of force in terms of “enforcement of current law”.
She picked the wrong bloody beach to die on, but she ingratiated her puffy self with her professional racist radical pals and Leftist media syncophants. (As if she really gives the smallest flip about conditions in Ferguson, MO.)
Hat tip on the, “Ms. AWFUL” moniker. I just used it, and so hope you don’t mind.
Ah stuff it, ugly.
Seems to me that Gwen has been smoking even better crap that what she had when she was “moderating” a Presidential debate!
What people have seen in Ferguson is unadulterated lawlessness - poised as “seeking justice”!! If anyone sees anything different than that, then they projecting onto the situation! They dang sure ain’t dealing with reality!
One day whites will be in a minority. Then the band of minorities will demonstrate their version of justice, the fairness of which will surpass that of the current version. Or not.
Famous for his toilet-seat interviews.
Yeah. What a prince...........
If a gigantic thug is white and he strong arms a store owner and then attacks a cop, he should be put in jail, maybe even without a trial.
If the thug is black, celebrate him as a hero of civil rights and put the cop in jail.
Go back and research. Once Martin Luther King left towns/cities where he had spoken, all h3ll broke loose.
I was alive then. I remember. It did happen that way.
Things were peaceful when he was speaking. It was AFTERWARD that the riots started.
IT IS THIER CIVIL RIGHT AS PEOPLE OF COLOR TO BREAK THE LAW AND GET AWAY WITH IT
Ferguson and Michael Brown are a SOROS OPERATION.
Mentally challenged Gwen Ifil is an eager tool for Soros.
She will keep her job as long as she dances for the Soros operation(s).
