    Don Lemon visits "School of Peace": http://youtu.be/mWbWSK6ef08

    I have seen this at least 5 times and I could watch it again. These children right here are the 18 year olds in 10-12 years... They are MB 10-12 years ago. Why? What happens. The last little girl is just an angel! I love her little toothless smile!

    You have every right to your opinion.

    As you well know... You and I are on opposite sides more often than not. While I hardly ever share your point of view, I respect it and I appreciate the way we are able to discuss/debate and challenge one another....

    My issue is with the message it's sending the youth in Ferguson. It's not productive in any way shape or form. Imagine being an 7-8-10 year old trying to process what's going on. More harm than good is being done.
    IMO

    info will be released to the public in this case if there is no indictment, b/c it will "serve the public's interest"

    I don't have a link, this is just info I've picked up by participating on various boards.

    If for some reason the docs won't be released, you can bet there will be multiple FIOA requests, and I don't think a judge would refuse them for this particular case.

    Heaven help save us all from politicians. :sigh:

    I think I will refrain from commenting on this info til I have absorbed and figured out how to do so responsibly. Do you have a link to that btw? It would help me in deciding how outraged I am about the idea of it.

    NM I see Popsicles linked tweet now. Still refraining for the moment.

    The lines are really being blurred here. Although Holder tempered his comments vs the Gov, when discussing a "vigorous investigation," yet these actions don't coincide with that concept.

    Lord, I'm gonna have to visit the basement on this one,

    So since some believe that, why did he not come out himself and just say that....Not buying it at all. What i do believe is, that cop was up to no good and the rest, well he is dead

    Plus all Reese Witherspoon did was keep saying "I am an american citizen!!!". She didn't lunge at the cop she didn't even TOUCH THE COP!

    How can anyone possibly compare the two?

    You know you are one of my favs.. :)

    I think that while we see that on tv that may not be reality. I think that a lot of mothers are going to use the incident as a cautionary tale. " when you rob people and act like a punk you can get killed."

    I have an issue with anyone who stands up and ignores all the facts and just tries to pick what they want out of it to make it work for them. I think though that some of the people there are scared and upset at seeing this person gunned down in the street unarmed and that really imprints on them.

    I can not imagine what I would feel like if this happened in the street in front of my house.
