    The point is, the fact that one person used the N word or screamed an obscenity does not qualify as network news.

    Or, maybe the point is that a person brought in to help quell a tense situation with lots of racial overtones and increasing distrust of police and armed authority figures is not only making a racist statement, but attributing all of the dangerous activities to completely erratic black people. Maybe that is something that should be reported, because otherwise that person's actions are at least being ignored.

    Although I guess we've seen how well ignoring racism and police violence and inequality has worked so far. We should probably keep it up.

    Outward expression of racism by member of police force accused of racist act? Obviously irrelevant.

    i guess what i'm saying is the only way that this story could surprise you is if you had been ignoring this issue until last week.

    person who seeks out occupation that requires gun found to be racist may as well be an onion article.

    Except that it wasn't a very good job of reporting...it was presented as an anecdote in a round table discussion the next night by someone who didn't actually hear the comment being made.

    The CNN anchor (Don Lemon) doesn't give any details about the CNN producer who the comment was directed to, let alone details about the national guard who made the comment, or present anybody else who heard the comment.

    I was walking home late at night, wearing shorts and t-shirt, drunk.

    And I thought:

    Hey - if I were black, and a cop shot me right now - the medical examiner will just point out that I was intoxicated. I must have done something to provoke it right?

    Hey - if I were a woman, and I was raped - it's definitely my fault for wearing revealing clothes, right?

    National Guard to withdraw from riot-torn Ferguson, Missouri

    The governor of Missouri ordered the withdrawal on Thursday of National Guard troops from riot-torn Ferguson, where tensions have eased after sometimes violent protests were staged nightly since police killed an unarmed black teenager.

    -Peaceful demonstrations overnight were the calmest street gatherings in the small St. Louis suburb since riots erupted over the Aug. 9 shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown by a white police officer.

    -But the crowds have thinned, and the mood is decidedly less tense. Police said six people were arrested overnight - far fewer than the scores detained on earlier nights of racial unrest.

    Hummm......
    If the news report below is accurate, then I'd say we have a bit of a double standard in the good ol' USofA. Read on:

    While Ferguson, Missouri, burns with racism and rioting, misinformation and mayhem over the Michael Brown shooting, another American city is also grappling with the death of an unarmed young man at the hands of police. The incident occurred just two days after the Ferguson event, but, unlike in that case, where a white cop shot a black youth, in this instance the races are reversed. Unlike in Ferguson, there is no allegation that the young man attacked the officer. And there is another difference:

    The national media, Attorney General Holder, and Barack Obama are silent.

    The young man was 20-year-old Salt Lake City resident and father-to-be Dillon Taylor. Taylor was leaving the 2102 South State Street 7-Eleven on August 11 with his brother, Jerrail Taylor, and cousin, Adam Thayne, when the incident occurred. Writes Fox 13:

    According to [South Salt Lake police] Sgt. Darin Sweeten, police were called to the scene just after 7 p.m. after receiving a 911 call of a man waving a gun in the air.




    When police arrived they spotted the suspect leaving the gas station with two other individuals.

    According to Sweeten, the officers demanded that the suspect and the two others surrender.

    The suspect did not follow orders and was shot.

    Police have not confirmed whether or not the suspect had a gun or why he was shot.

    The two other individuals [Jerrail Taylor and Adam Thayne] with the suspect did comply with police.

    Allegations have been made, however, that Taylor was a victim of mistaken identity and, perhaps, overly-aggressive policing. As KUTV reports:

    Dillon’s brother and cousin claim they were on their way to visit his parents’ graves and that Dillon was surprised by the police presence. He was not aggressive, they said.

    “He had headphones in, and he couldn’t hear [anything], and then they finally surrounded him,” Jerrail said. “They’re like, ‘Get on the ground,’ and [he] pulled up his pants and [they] shot him.”

    Thayne believes police might have thought his cousin was reaching for a gun when, in reality, he grabbed his cell phone.

    “I was in shock, because he was wearing a white t-shirt and there was blood all over it,” Thayne said. “They ran up and handcuffed him. He wasn’t moving.”

    A witness’s video shows police yelling for the two men to remain on the ground as Thayne repeatedly screams that they have shot his cousin.

    The two men were taken to the police station, but released hours later without being charged or cited.

    Unlike the Ferguson Police, many Salt Lake City law-enforcement officers wear body cameras, and the incident was caught on video. The video is currently being withheld, however; Police Chief Chris Burbank says that it, along with the name of the officer firing the shots, will be released at the “appropriate” time.
    "Some people just need a hi-five in the face."

    did the community have a long history of black cop on white civilian violence? was the camera video somehow corrupted so it was hard to ascertain details of the attack? were there riots?

    unfortunately we don't always get a lot of media coverage on police misuse of power. ferguson happened to get the coverage it did because of the reaction from the community.

    As a side note, most people locally have been far, far more outraged about this than they have been about anything related to shooting described above.

    Also, Salt Lake City has one of the best-run urban police departments in the country.

    I don't think anyone takes Rodger seriously after he made it known what an asshat he is in the healthcare thread. Sad to see he's now going to pollute this thread with his anti-Obama bullshit.

    We are getting emails regarding potential riots this week. Our office building is prepared to go on complete lockdown if riots come to downtown. People are buying plywood to cover store windows. You cannot rent security this week, as all security firms are completely booked.
