You want to get rid of Ferguson??
The FBI study actually said more whites were pulled over in Ferguson than blacks based on those without a warrant. If you include warrants then more blacks but people forget that Ferguson is surrounded by majority black municipalities like Dellwood and Pine Lawn. Guess what? Dellwood and Pine Lawn have mostly black city councils and mostly black police along with black mayors yet they STILL pull over a lot of blacks!
The big mistake here was the protesters picking Mike Brown as a role model. He was just a street thug who committed strongarm robbery by robbing cigarillos and then committed another felony by assaulting a cop! If Brown lived he'd be looking at 15 years in prison! Like the liberal NY Times said he's NO angel! Trayvon Martin and Eric Garner were saints compared to this guy!
The most important thing in the DOJ report, to me anyway, was that it said there was a "pattern of systemic discrimination in Ferguson." The emails that cost people their jobs were bad, but the systemic discrimination finding validates the protesters' cause to me. I agree that Mike Brown may not have been the best catalyst, but I think the DOJ reports validate the protesters' message.
It's easy to poke holes in various elements of the protests (the violence, some of the idiots protesting, Mike Brown being the cause), but I don't think those things should drown out the rest of the message.
