"They're simply doing what Americans do in hard times."

In your neighborhood, do people shoot an innocent woman in the head, burn down a convenience store and loot & pilfer a Wal-Mart and dozens of other businesses when something angers you?

Well, stealing and destroying businesses is a time-honored civic right of ‘protest”.

No one else is.

"They're simply doing what Americans do in hard times."

Rioting and looting a bunch of stuff?

"Police even tear gassed an Al Jazeera news crew, and arrested two journalists for no reason."

No reason, except breaking and entering into a boarded up private building.

"Whenever hands are raised, just as Brown's were before he was fatally shot""

No bias there.

Black privilege means you can be 6’4” and weigh 300 lbs, grab for a cop’s gun and be lionized as a saint when the cop shoots you dead. Black privilege means that cops don’t have to justify shooting non-black victims whereas when a black perp is shot, anyone pointing to the fact that he’s no saint is automatically labeled racist.

Yep, and don’t forget to pay your taxes in full, pay your Obamacare fees and deductibles, give to the Negro College Fund, NAACP and the local food bank.

They take my money, dreams and freedom and I’m expected to just sit here and take it.

Then I get some condescending lecture from some holier than thou liberal politician or activist about how all the above will America a better place.

Meanwhile brown skinned border hoppers and inner city gangbangers can do whatever they want?

Isn’t the law supposed to apply equally? Why does it only apply to me?

Is it because I’m white?

You have all the facts, I don't. From the reports I have read, Brown pushed the officer back into the patrol car and then tried to take his weapon away. A shot was fired inside the patrol car during the scuffle. Brown then tried to flee and was shot. The police officer was supposedly injured in the encounter.

I am not defending shooting someone in cold blood. However, Brown was a big man, 6'4" and 300 pounds. I have no idea how big the police officer is. Why the officer felt it was necessary to shoot him needs to be investigated.

This writer must have forgotten that the widespread looting is why
the police were deployed. To protect businesses who had nothing to do
the the young black thug being shot.
