Blog Comment of the Day

“Missouri cop was badly beaten before shooting Michael Brown, says source,” according to Fox News. Glenn Reynolds adds that “The Narrative Seems to Be Breaking Down.” His first blog commenter outlines exactly what the narrative du jour is:

There seems to be a pattern: 1) unarmed young black guy is shot, 2) there is a vast media outcry over the young “honor student’s” death, 3) family provides photos of the dead guy taken when he was 11 years old, well before he had opted for the ghetto thug look, 4) it comes out that the “honor student” has been committing felonies, 5) witnesses say the honor student was beating the hell out of the person who shot him, 6) Democrat politicians call for the shooter’s conviction, and 7) prosecutors, fearing rioting, black voters, or what have you, prosecute the shooter anyway.

Have I missed anything?

And as another blog commenter writes, expect things to get worse as a result:

We will soon see an almost complete lack of Policing in inner cities following the lynching of this officer. Why on Earth would a cop risk jail for enforcing the law? Of course the people that will suffer the most are the citizens of Ferguson and similar areas. They will soon degenerate into Jungles; the biggest and most aggressive will run rampant, and rob, and beat, and kill, without fear of the law.

We will soon see an almost complete lack of Policing in inner cities following the lynching of this officer.
In blissful blue-state Seattle, the (verbal) lynching of the officers has been organized by Eric Holder's corrupt DOJ, which has force-fed an Agreement by which Seattle's police are defanged, micromanaged and demonized by unelected outsiders supported by Seattle's leftist Times newspaper. Coming soon to a town near you.

"They will soon degenerate into Jungles”

Why is “jungles” capitalized?

Mass delusions can paper over reality only for so long.

You missed the best part... this baloney helped a useless d*ck of a president with a miserable first term record get re-elected in 2012 when by all rights his sorry stupid arrogant ass should've been kicked to the curb by the voters (just like Jimmy Carter.) Now, another such case comes around just when the same useless d*ck of a president has made an even bigger mess of things and his miserable, greedy, bottom-feeding party is in danger of losing the senate because of the messes he and they made of everything. I wonder what they've got staged for 2016? WWIII?
