monoski: If the kid was accused of shooting a cop you can bet your ass his name and face would be all over the news.
Professor Duck: BREAKING NEWS (8:59 AM): Police cancel planned release of officer's name due to "growing safety concerns"/I'll believe it when I see it
Jacobin: monoski: If the kid was accused of shooting a cop you can bet your ass his name and face would be all over the news.In before "that's different"
Mathematics of Wonton Burrito Meals: Maybe the guy shouldn't have assaulted a police office?
Enlightened Liberal: I thought Anonymous already released the officer's name. Then again, I didn't really follow an updates on the story yesterday.
2xcited: I am sure the officer is in protective custody far from Ferguson. Because he is going to be afforded the right of "innocent until proven guilty," the right he deprived his victim of. Which has become pretty standard for LE in small towns across the nation. 40% of White males under the age of 25 have been arrested and 50% of black males. In Brunswick Co. NC, the sheriff deptuies kicked it up a notch, and shot a spindly 18yo, with psychiatric issues and killed him. The comment was made as they shot him, "We don't have tome for this." His parents had called police to help restrain him and get him psychiatric help. I guess this did not make national news because he was a white kid.
Ah,Tyrone Slothrop: Bloody well about time. He's a public employee, the public has the right to know.
Muta: It is public record so the public has the right to know.
Gunny Highway: Good to hear. I wasnt able to follow the coverage last night. Did anything significant happen or did the gathering remain peaceful after dark?
Rapmaster2000: Let's discuss The Facts of the case. Michael "Pimp Dog" Brown was wandering aimlessly with no good intentions with his homies, probably on the way to buy some purple drank, when they were observed by a kind and brave first responder. The officer, who probably reads to orphans in his spare time, kindly asked the young punks why they were swearing so much and wearing their pants so low. The craven thugs swiftly and savagely attacked our hero, pounding his head relentlessly against the hard seats of his taxpayer funded police cruiser. The officer called out "I just want to mentor you to be good in school and stay off drugs", but the thug muttered "I'ma git you sucka" so the brave patriot had to choice but to defend America with his trusty sidearm.It's a pretty cut and dried case. There can be no debate about this.
cameroncrazy1984: Maybe you shouldn't be blaming the victim?
Mudd's woman: [img.fark.net image 320x480]Not so relevant.But there it is.First available image.
FirstTimeLongTime: One member of Anon released a nameOther members of Anon said it might not be correct and there was a disagreementOf course, if he's right, twitter will be fun to watch.
SordidEuphemism: 2xcited: I am sure the officer is in protective custody far from Ferguson. Because he is going to be afforded the right of "innocent until proven guilty," the right he deprived his victim of.Yeah, that's great and all, but right now we're talking about a specific crime. So go stuff yourself and we can debate general racism in police procedures and poor training overall at another time.
Millennium: The public has the right to know, once the review has determined that there is enough evidence to go forward with disciplinary procedures.
