Sister, we all fear the police overstepping their authority.  But based on statistics, your fears are misplaced.  Your fear that your black teenager might get killed by another black teenager, however, is not misplaced, based on crime statistics.  Now, how the hell are you going to alleviate that fear without a police force?  Hmmm?

Losing a child, regardless of circumstances, is the most devastating thing that can happen to a parent. His grieving mother deserves our sympathy.

But let me tell you what Ferguson, at its root, is all really about: where, and who is Michael Brown's father?
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

The way the Black culture is presenting themselves, you would think they want "Black law". That is to say that out of the dozens of ethinic people in America, the American Black want themselves to be 'separate and special'. They do not want to have to obey the normal rules and laws of society. They want to place themselves on some level above of what is expected of every other American no matter who you are or what color you are. Blacks consider themselves to be 'special' somehow.
 
It is common knowledge that a Black thug is a thousand times more likely to be armed than is any other citizen. It is common knowledge that a Black thug is a thousand times more likely to resist and attack "POe-leeez" than any other common citizen. Saying that COPs and White people in general should not be alert when dealing with young Blacks that they do not know, is like saying that it is racist to say that fire is hot.
 
When you deal with a Black thug and get burned, and then you deal with another Black thug and get burned, and then you deal with another Black thug and get burned, eventually you learn that fire is hot. It is not "racist" to say that if you put your hand in a fire, you will get burned. It is not racist to say that the large majority of young urban Black guys are f**king dangerous. These guys will hurt you, and they don't care one bit what color your skin is.
 
Prejudice exists for a reason. In every other culture other than idiot Liberal America, prejudice is called 'experience'. It is is not a question of hating a 'race' or the color of somebody's skin, it is a question of looking out for people who will hurt you. It is idiotic to deny reality. We have to face what is.
 
Until Blacks stop acting like fools and stop killing each other and everybody else, nothing is going to change.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.

Interesting question. And another parallel to the Trayvon case. Michael Brown Sr. is visible now, but we don't know how much he interacted with his son. He certainly didn't live with Jr & his mother. Michael Brown Jr was living with his grandmother at the time of his death.
So, neither Trayvon nor Michael had a home with a mother and father, and neither of them were living with a parent at the time of their death.
Young boys without a stable home are much more likely to have problems than boys from a stable home, no matter what their race. We know that, but we'd prefer to spend time talking about racism than to try to do something about making sure kids have a stable home. It's an easier subject to deal with.

If that question is intended to be generic, inserting the name of the random black boy in place of Michael Brown's, you have a point.

But Michael Brown's father was present, married to his mother,  in the home. From all appearances, the young man was doing well.  Graduated from high school and was taking remedial classes this summer so he could go to college. He smoked marijuana (no longer an arrestable offense in most states) and was likely stealing cheap cigars so he could use them for smoking other substances. 

Unfortunately, his encounter with Darren Wilson--an officer who probably never had a run in with anybody--ended with the loss of his life. No doubt Brown was aggressive with Wilson but there are questions about why Wilson decided to pursue Brown with his gun drawn.  Likely, Wilson will be cleared, as a grand jury will find he was "in fear for his life." 

But Wilson's life has been changed, too.  He will never be able to work in Ferguson again, and he may never get hired at any other department.  His life in Law Enforcement is over.  All because PD's have a policy of active pursuit (my nephews tell me that's what they're taught), and always pursue with gun drawn or your hand on your gun.  That's why so many dogs get shot in their own environment:  cops hopped up on adrenaline and, not thinking clearly, they clear away any obstacle.

The mood is changing in America.  Citizens want the MWRAPS and camouflage to be used rarely, if ever.  They want the cops to dial down confrontations, and they're sick to death of lethal force being used when there are other means to resolve a situation. 

Stop shooting citizens, stop shooting dogs. Put FEDEX delivery men on the police force, and there'd be a helluva lot fewer dead people and dogs.
