No More Michael Browns

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/aug/19/hurt-why-everything-went-wrong-in-ferguson/

Ferguson has become the center point for those Americans who think they can do anything they want without consequences.  Michael Brown robbed a store.  Michael Brown was confronted by a police officer and was shot to death as a result.

Rather than morn the lost of a son and pine over his wasted life, the community has determined to blame the police.  People are protesting for "justice" for Michael Brown but they can't seem to define what that means.  Rather, they want the death penalty for the officer who shot Michael Brown.  Why is the police officer the villain in this story?  Why does the media show the dead man as if he were some innocent boy?

Career criminals end up dead, in jail or reformed.  Michael Brown seemed on the road to death or jail.  He used his size to intimidate a store owner and to steal from him.  The store owner did nothing wrong and the police who responded acted as we expect police to do, to defend themselves against attack.  The best way to get justice for Michael Brown is to make sure no more young men end up like him.  Bring morality back to our society, and encourage good citizen; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
