    The "instigation" were his display of the Castro tee-shirt and comments on our political system.

    The brutalizing and oppression is not entirely race. Never was. When you have EVERY HOUSEHOLD in Ferguson Mo. having an average of 3.5 warrants and 1.5 arrests/yr --- this is a systematic failure of local govts to provide "user friendly", accurate and INNOVATIVE adminstration of justice. The kind that doesn't turn a simple broken taillight problem into a FINANCIAL CRISIS and escalate to encounters with police on the streets.

    It's not largely racial -- it's economic. When economically fragile communities like Ferguson/Baltimore try to run their justice system and services the SAME WAY as any richer suburb..

    I think this goes well beyond any one community.

    The problem is a lot more to do with not holding police accountable when they screw up.

    Star spangled banner is a poem from the aierel shelling Key witnessed. How does that have anything to do with "minorities been done wrong"
    You Libs are so desperate for false emotional fodder that you will even mismatch non related issues to have some half assed "protest" about
