I dont see another outcome of this situation, other than the police beating the shit out of a lot of people and thus spawning future unrest.

Even if they crucify this cop, no real changes in policy or behavior will be made most likely. The problem will continue, unrest will continue, etc etc.
(i doubt the cop will face charges)

The only way to actually mitigate the problem, would be to actually tackle the issues (police treatment, unjust drugwar, unjust prison system, unjust education availability, etc etc) and we sure as shit know that isn't gonna happen....

The most that will likely happen, will be obama making some sort of BS pledge to tackle the problem but in reality nothing gets done. Same kind of shit they pull to appease the environmentalists.

Wont be enough in this case IMO

I haven't been following it close but don't think they have the evidence to bring charges. This next round of protesters aren't gonna be like the first. Lots of agitators and ppl just looking for a conflict. Lots of formerly antigun ppl arming themselves too.

Won't be Rodney king scale tho. The militarized police force is actually pretty well equipped for full scale riots, unlike in the 90s

Well... they say they will riot either way. So I give it about a week of rioting/protesting and then it will die down just like last time.

No indictment. Cops are never guilty.

Still don't get why the cop had to pump so many rounds into Brown. Was he still fearing for his life when he pulled the trigger for the 6th time? Or how about when Brown was running AWAY from him? And why no shots to the knee area? That would have stopped him in his tracks. The rioting is bullshit but I'm not sure I wouldn't be doing the same thing.

Surely with the murder rate in the US, somebody will take it into their own hands.

That cop and his family will never really feel safe again.

No randomly. There were thrown shot and torched cars from almost the very beginning, and Iit'sIimpossible to stop looters and vandals when they have 'peaceful' protesters to blend in with. Duck everything about this.

You can't stage a proper riot without looting.

Oh there was plenty of that. Friends family business was burnt to the ground after they looted it.

I think these cops are showing enormous restraint. Not firing rubber bullets while 'peaceful' protesters screen at you late into the night and gunfire is popping off in the area (including at least one automatic) and businesses are going off left or right? I know I'd have a hard time with it.

I have to agree.

If shit popped off here you better believe I would be guarding my business. I wouldn't show half as much restraint as these cops.

If these fucking cops showed some restraint to start with , this shit wouldn't be happening. The cop said he felt like a 5 year old against hulk hogan or the incredible hulk(can't recall which)when describing his physical confrontation with Brown and yet he managed to come away with the gun and pump 6 to 9 rounds into him. One bad ass 5 year old.
