  • The black people of Ferguson know all too well how they have been mistreated. What is unfathomable is why they have tolerated this mistreatment for decades… In other words,  I love those stupid blacks!!! They don't even understand how useless they are:)

  • This doesn't make sense. Why would Officer Wilson shoot Michael Brown when he could have given him a ticket for Jaywalking and made some money for Ferguson?

  • so the police goal there is to make as much money as possible not to protect and serve the city, clearly! so whats going to be their punishment?

  • Michael Brown attacked a cop, his step father stated to burn ferguson down and they did… Is it payday for thugs yet?

  • The Chief is accountable? How about all the fckn CRIMINALS should be held accountable. It's not his fault there are so many in his town. Clean it up amongst yourselves because getting a new chief won't do anything but make you feel better.

  • No one cares. You can post as many 90 second clips about racist email jokes that you want, they have few views because Wilson was innocent and the truth came out about the gentle giant. This story's done and had been for months. No wonder Fox kicks your ass.

  • This is happening all across united states. People open your eyes, they think they above the law. No thrust n the gang n blue.

  • One thing which is missing from all these "reports", is that did the ticketed (cited) individuals deserved citation or not?
    If the fergerson police department is guilty of raising cash (for itself or city) from issuing citation, then probably every police department in the country is guilty (for issuing citations and conducting drug rates) !!!

  • There is no question that the black community has higher than average criminal and or anti-social behavioral incidents. The question is why? Liberals think that it is out of frustration caused by subtle yet persistent systemic discriminatory practices built into the structure of the culture. As a solution Liberals want to make changes to the system in an attempt to remove or at least control these discriminatory practices. Conservatives think that it is due to inherent racial character traits exclusive to black people. As a solution Conservatives want black people to pull up their pants and learn some family values like white people do. What do you think?

  • It is a racist statement in itself to suggest that cops only target blacks.  They target EVERYONE that is not a cop, white, black, brown, yellow.  Cops have become systemic predators upon the public, with each police department a legalized and judicially sanctioned criminal organization bent on shaking down the public for as much money as it can.  It just happens that blacks are easy targets, but we are all vulnerable in this new police state.

  • Chief Thomas Jackson finally resigned with a very nice severance packet, I must say.  Chief Thomas will get full salary for one (1) year with all benefits.  If it were someone other him, it would not happen.  The two other officers were fired for writing racist comments on company property. But, this is not the end.  That precinct must be reassigned from top to bottom, otherwise, this situation is going to get catastrophic.

  • Chief Thomas Jackson is a SCUM BAG.  He lacks transparency and he's probably the biggest racist in the Ferguson Police Dept. He's known all along about the culture of racism in that precinct and he fueled it.  This is why he resigned… He was caught at his own game by a system larger and much more powerful than anyone in Missouri.
