Nixon said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that he was not happy with the release of the video, which police say show the black teen stealing a box of cigars before he was killed by a white officer on Aug. 9 in Ferguson.
Nixon said the video “appeared to cast aspersions” on Brown.

"Nixoned" needs to join "Nifonged".

Not hardly, Extraneus. It's Holder's Department of Just Us.

Mexico City (AFP) - Mexico's foreign ministry late Friday protested Texas Governor Rick Perry's deployment of National Guard troops to the southern US border to halt the surge of child migrants.

Mexico "reiterates, in a firm and categorical way, its rejection of this measure," read a statement from the foreign ministry.

"No circumstance at all or change in border security exists that justifies this measure taken by the state."

Hey, maybe he should seek to have Perry indicted. I bet state Dems would do it.

Captain Hate

Yeah I saw that at Weasel Zippers, Beasts, because God knows the MFM won't make our special needs president look like insensitive gutter trash by reporting facts. Does anybody know if Powell attended the funeral because I can't find anything online?

Beasts of England

Did DublinDave swing by to lecture us on democrat-on-democrat crime?

Hey Dave: tell your union thugs to stop killing your black thugs!

Beasts of England

@Captain: I didn't see Powell's name in the article I read. Seems to be something they would have noted...

H&R,

You got to give her the style points, don't forget the style points.

Clarice,

Great pieces, MM's quote does fit to a tee. I will disagree just a little bit, in that in the ME the young are doing the killing but it is the older ones who are directing things.

In many black communities, as in Central America and some African countries, the majority of those over 30yrs are dead (civil wars in CH-Africa, crime in the US) or in prison. It has left many countries with a younger generation that has grown up around violence and without fathers or even older mentors to guide them.

Jeff Dobbs

If Hillary were president...

"Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material released in a video."

"With all due respect, the fact is we have a dead honor student. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d go rob a store? What difference at this point does it make?"

She held her form on the follow through very well.

Can say I completely blame Mexico, they are just playing ball with Obama by facilitating the flood of immigrants. If they are stop from coming here, they, might have to take care of the immigrants, pooh, hooh.

They chose unwisely, and may now have to actually control their border.

That all sounds right to me, except for 4)Mgr does not file charges.

Why would the mgr be on point to file (or not!) charges when police have evidence of a felony? At any rate, the police report suggests someone at the BUSINESS indicated they are willing to prosecute (see page 2, bottom half)

The chain of stores that I was GM at had two types of "Managers." We had real managers that had "decision making capability" and we had fake managers that were nothing more than people that could open or close the store.

A real manager or the owner could press the charge of theft, the open/close guy could not.

Is it possible that the charge not being pressed is the assault charge?

clarice

Because, Alice H, he didn't want the store totally trashed. On the wall nearby someone painted in large letters a violent warning against snitches.

why do you suppose Holder wants a second autopsy? Three guesses.

I'm sure Holder's autopsy won't release their tox screen.

And the idea of an independent autopsy is beyond ridiculous. Was this thug a head of state? Do all the kids killed in Chicago this weekend get an independent autopsy.

Impeach Holder. Slap his racist ass in jail.

Sometimes it's not what you report, it's what you say off camera out of public hearing that is the important thing...

Missouri coroners not down with the shtruggle?

Hi Jane,
Would love to try for a meet up next week. Feel free to email me at malmah123@comcast.net.

Haven't read Clarice's Pieces, but what have I missed? Did John Kerry settle the quagmire he helped create in the ME yet? Is Barry still acting indifferently? Is Michelle still mad at him? Did the two lovebirds dine on NE lobster at Fatboy Ted's fav dig, the Black Dog in Vineyard Haven, yet? Inquiring minds want to know.

Bori

I guess the preliminary autopsy does not have good news for Holder and his people. I recall reading that the Chief of Police had said that the first shot, the one in the car was the fatal one, so some determinations have been arrived at.

AliceH

clarice: I get that. My point is that the prosecutor(s) with jurisdiction can choose to prosecute regardless of whether or not a victim decides to "file charges". There's no "up side" to the victim to file here and thus there is no reason to do so, even if the obvious "down side" wasn't there.

Why does the makeshift Brown memorial contain bottles of MD 20 20, NyQuil, etc.? Is that Ripple?

I didn't know that Mad Dog 20/20 came in orange. I'll have to add a few bottles to my cellar...

AliceH,

Nice catch on the NYT lying by the numbers bit on Ferguson. They used the ACS INCOME IN THE PAST 12 MONTHS 5-year screen without any adjustment of the median for household type. Married couples constitute 49% of the households in Missouri but just 29% of the households in Ferguson. The median income of married couples in Ferguson is 94% of the state median income for married couples in Missouri (the difference can be fully accounted for by academic achievement). Households with nonfamily members in Ferguson have a median income of 93% wrt to state median for the same demographic.

Almost the entire reported disparity in median income is accounted for by single parent households.

Lies, damned lies and statistics strikes again.

Sad when we get the most honest and comprehensive media coverage from the British press. Nice to see that the looting savages have learned to cover their faces as they terrorize businesses.

It's really time to turn it around on these miscreants: No peace, no justice.

Of course they can prosecute without the victim's complaint, Alice H.

"A Witness Conversation Unknowingly Captured at the Scene of the Ferguson Shooting is a Game-Changer"

http://www.ijreview.com/2014/08/168698-eyewitness-recalls-important-detail-background-video-mins-ferguson-shooting/

This corroborates an account of the event given by a friend of Officer Darren Wilson:

Well, then Michael takes off and gets to be about 35 feet away. And, Darren’s first protocol is to pursue. So, he stands up and yells, “Freeze!” Michael and his friend turn around. And Michael taunts him… And then all the sudden he just started bumrushing him. He just started coming at him full speed. And, so he just started shooting. And, he just kept coming. And, so he really thinks he was on something.”

Jane

Bela,

I sent you an email. If it doesn't get there let me know.
