And in all the live feeds I watched I did not see chanting for his death so it's not like it was a common battle cry nor the main driving force in any sense.
My point is exactly what I said. The police in SOME areas are very corrupt and too many assholes with huge prejudice are allowed a badge and weapon. They have the power and authority so it's on them to fix it and set the tone. Anyone who has their eyes open knows the deep problems of the area, especially north county.
So, of those examples I gave, NO ONE is responsible for their actions and it's all the fault of the police? The police instigated the looting and rioting?? They get screamed at, bricks, rocks and urine thrown at them, along with firebombs, and you're blaming them for responding? How many civilians were hurt by cops in those riots? None. The only injuries were to the cops, but it's their fault for being there? Then people got angry when they stayed away and looters ran rampant.
Yes, there are people who shouldn't be cops, and then there are the race-baiters like Al Sharpton, who can also set the tone but instead fuel the fire. Who calls him out? No one.
Maybe you should expand your viewing choices, I saw the footage of the chanting, as well as people in the crowd insisting there wouldn't be justice until Wilson was tried AND FOUND GUILTY. Why bother with a trial? They want his head on a platter. The same news channel also reported how most of the crowd was peaceful and a lot of the agitators were not from Ferguson, as well as providing coverage of residents helping shopkeepers clean up after the looting.
Yes, there are deep problems in north county but it's not ALL on the cops. There was a man shot (not by the cops) during the riot and the cops couldn't even get through the crowd to get to the guy. NOT one person came forward to identify the shooter or even admit they saw the shooting. I get that people don't trust the cops, but how are the cops supposed to do their job if no one cooperates? That's like calling the fire department about a fire, not giving them the address and then blaming them for the house burning down.
