    So this is where the US has ended up. Not surprising as they have unquestioningly and uncritically supported Zionist fascism for decades.
    National Judaism is corrosive of democracy in “Israel” and in the US too.
    Americans should thank the Zionists for their steady loss of liberty.
    They should also thank their AIPAC-bought-and-paid-for elected representatives for conspiring to deprive them of their liberties too.

    CORRECTION: A previous version of this article reported that Epstein was arrested in Ferguson. She was arrested in St. Louis.

    what does people want the government to do with the unrest by lots of people and lawlessness by just a few ? they have been trying different things but not much works . it seams like most have the police officer at fault but if you been paying attention it seams to me that its not as much the officer as it was the victim at fault . it might be a long time if ever that we find out the real truth . please don’t be quick to judge let all the pieces of the puzzle arrive before making up your mind .

    Don’t forget the survivors’ children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, great great grandchildren and on and on and on……and that is not taking into account nieces and nephews, great nieces and great nephews…..and second and third and fourth and on and on…..cousins.
    The holocaust (as Norman Finkelstein coins it) is the industry that never stops giving – until, that is, people stop taking it seriously.
    Reports of the mass murder of many people across Europe during the Second World War are appalling. I believe around 50 million died.
    In the Far East, many prisoners of the Japanese died under appalling circumstances yet – strangely – no industry has ever resulted from that. Now, why is that?

    Joe momma: so it is the victim’s fault that he ended up with at least 6 (maybe 8?) bullets in his body, including 2 to his head. Is that right?
    From video footage I have seen of him, he was a big boy – just 18.
    It may be the police officer felt unconfident about interrogating him.
    But that is no reason to murder him.
    The officer should have called for backup and got back in his locked car if he was so concerned.
    Instead, he shot and killed that young boy, robbing him of his life.
    Additionally, that officer is responsible for all the trouble ever since.
    At a minimum, he should be fired and serious consideration should be given to prosecuting him for murder, with whatever capital sentence is considered just by a local jury and judge.
    Do they still have the death penalty in Missouri?

    was you there john ? unless a person is there at the time of any incident they just might need to keep a open mind and let the cards fall where they may . is a rush to judgment the right way to go ? what about letting everything come out and than we can see who was wrong and go from there. what I heard was 6 shots . why he needed 6 shots I just have guesses like everyone else . let the grand jury see if he should go to trial and we can go from there
    I think most everyone knows the answer to your question about Missouri have a death penalty or not being about 7 got put to death so far this year here in Missouri .
    thank you and please don’t forget to tip your waitress !

    Joe momma: I live in the UK not in the US which is why I had to ask about the death penalty in Missouri. Has a police officer in Missouri ever been sentenced to death and executed?
    Like you, I am only aware of the results of the private autopsy carried out on behalf of the dead boy’s family. I do not believe, however, that the eventual post mortem report will differ much from the private one.
    I did live in the US for around 2 years in the mid-1970s, at one time I even ended up in Watts, scene of some of the worst riots in the US.
    It seems we are seeing very similar scenes in Ferguson again today.
    I am not at all sure as to how all this will end, with today a second killing.
    Having worked as a waiter on The Strip in Las Vegas, I agree with tips!
