    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

    Now they want white people to come to their restaurants. Um, I don't think so. I don't have a death wish.

    I want to thank you all, too. The discussions were very informative and orderly. Thanks to those who provided the tweets that let us know what was happening in the meeting. I hope everyone who attended the Council Meeting arrives home safely tonight.

    I'm wondering can someone suggest a more productive way this meeting could have been played out?

    Or if you think it was productive I wold love to hear why and what was accomplished.

    TIA.

    LambChop - just before the last thread closed, you posted this:

    Let's stay on topic for the next thread. Enough with the streets unless it is relevant to MB.

    Can you please explain what the bolded bit means so that I understand what "the streets" means? TIA

    Did she tell them that she didn't agree with their tactics?
