    MO - Grief & protests follow shooting of teen Michael Brown #8

    The fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager Saturday by a police officer in a St. Louis suburb came after a struggle for the officer’s gun, police officials said Sunday, in an explanation that met with outrage and skepticism in the largely African-American community.The killing of the youth, Michael Brown, 18, ignited protests on Saturday and Sunday in Ferguson, Mo., a working-class suburb of about 20,000 residents. Hundreds of people gathered at the scene of the shooting to question the police and to light candles for Mr. Brown, who was planning to begin college classes on Monday.
    Mr. Brown’s stepfather, Louis Head, held a cardboard sign that said, “Ferguson police just executed my unarmed son.”

    A couple of things:

    1) We are not going to allow links to blogs in this case without prior approval. And approvals will be tough to get.

    2) Posts directed at other posters rather than the case will earn a TO without explanation. If you have a problem with another member, use the alert feature and scroll on by OR use the ignore feature and keep it to yourself

    In a community of mostly AA, one would think more would run or be on the city council. They need money to run. I heard one AA interviewed mention they don't get the money to run. The discussion just seems to be by everyone in the press about the number of AA officers on the force when the city government is a problem. Follow the money, imo, and who gives it.

    I mapped it looks like it is in the middle of nowhere. Am I missing something?

    Since we've learned officer Wilson had an injury to his eye, it makes me wonder if it was his dominant eye.

    While we're all speculating I'd like for people to try an exercise which affects shooting a gun and accuracy.

    Hold one arm out with one finger upward. With both eyes open cover an object across the room with that one finger and both eyes open. (I/E a sugar bowl, bottle, smaller picture) Now keeping the object covered and in the same place, alternate both left and right eye open and close, one at a time.

    Does one eye make the object move?

    Is Daily Kos an acceptable source to link about the record of an officer in Ferguson?

    Troy MO is about an hour northwest of Ferguson - farm/livestock country

    MB is not from Ferguson; it's been reported that he was visiting his gramma (that summer?) and NOTE he did graduate from Normandy HS which is where kids would go if they lived in that apt complex unless the student chooses to attend an accredited school within the StL metro area (well, schools that will accept them) - but that's a entire other discussion. I read where his mother's address is in East StL & I have not seen anything about where his father lives

    I also am pointing out that MB attended multiple HS during his tenure based on the "victim profiles" I have read

    In the last mayoral election, 12% of the total population of Ferguson, according to a show on 971talk.com. I don't know how that breaks down by race. It was on the Jamie Allman show, I think Monday morning's show. They may have replays on there. I recommend podcasts of Dave Glover's show and Jamie Allman's show on that station. I didn't hear much of Dana's show but it's usually reliable. They are all local and have a handle on the local culture.

    I'm having trouble posting Chris Matthews interview of Charles Oglestreet on Andrea Mitchell Reports. It's priceless. If someone could help.
