  • Race and Police Shootings: Are Blacks Targeted More?

    But most interesting, perhaps, was the race of the officers who fired their weapons. About two-thirds were white, and one-third black — effectively identical to the racial composition of the St. Louis Police Department as a whole. In this study, at least, firing at a black suspect was an equal-opportunity decision. The experiment’s 102 subjects, a mixture of police officers, combat veterans and civilians, were run through a random sample of 60 scenarios drawn from actual police encounters. The scenarios, using white, black and Hispanic actors, were projected in life-size high-definition video on laboratory screens. Whether officers, veterans or civilians,...

    Hundreds of protesters clogged South Florrisant Road in front of the Ferguson Police Department as they demanded justice in the shooting of Michael Brown three weeks ago. The crowd grew rapidly beginning about 1 p.m. after earlier marching from the site of Brown's shooting by a police officer to a city park, where Brown's family spoke. The march was billed as a protest "against police killings, brutality, profiling and legal cover-ups." Organizers said people would be coming from around the country for the march. Many people carried signs and there were people honking horns and shouting "Justice for Michael Brown."

    As the facts of the shooting in Ferguson Missouri leaked the air went out of the racism balloon. The race baiters desperately needed a canard- something else upon which to hang their restive hats. Thus The Reverend Tawana Sharpton, Obama's "go to guy" on race, drew a new race card out of the deck: The police caused the riots. The Rev. Al Sharpton used his eulogy for slain 18-year-old Michael Brown on Monday to criticize the conduct of law enforcement in Ferguson, Missouri, and to call for America to “deal with” the kind of policing that has plagued the community...

    The international spotlight has recently been shining on Ferguson, Mo., after an 18-year-old black man was fatally shot by a white police officer. There was massive national and international media coverage, much of it engendered by the tantalizing thought that here was a clear-cut case of racism leading to police brutality and indicative of the evil inherent in American society. Violent demonstrations and riots ensued, with massive property damage and many outside agitators descending on the town, supposedly to guarantee justice as defined by mob mentality. Perhaps it would be useful to examine the tragedy with the facts on the...

    Nearly two weeks after Michael Brown’s death, a police report on the shooting has finally been made public. But the glaring lack of detail is likely to increase widespread criticism that the law-enforcement community is closing ranks around Darren Wilson, the officer who fatally shot Brown on Aug. 9. The incident report, filed by the St. Louis County police department, contains no new information on the encounter between Brown and Wilson. There are no written details about the event. As a result, the officer’s account of what transpired when the two men met just after noon on Aug. 9 remains...

The facts that seem undisputed, and in these situations that is so rare, are that an unarmed eighteen year old named Michael Brown was walking in a street. An altercation occurred with a police officer. Undisputed is that the officer gave chase to Mr. Brown after the scuffle and shot Mr. Brown, at least once in the back.

    During the first autopsy after all the far tests and initial examination for trace evidence the body is washed including the bullet wound areas. The second autopsy is is only done after the first autopsy is completed and the body is released to the family. The second autopsy claims no far was found on the body. My question is would the washing of the body done in the first autopsy as well as other procedures remove the far trace. If so the claim the was no far by the Brown family team would be misleading at best.

Friday's release occurred over the objection of federal authorities, the official said.
