I’d laugh if it wasn’t so likely to come true ….

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager in Missouri over the weekend “deserves a fulsome review.”

Ful•some (fo͝olˈsəm)

    1. Judging from the details of the behavior of the multiple officers involved in the illegal detainment of journalists it seems that police force has a culture of brutality. One officer even had the nerve to suggest the journalist was resisting arrest when clearly he was not and took that excuse to slam his head. That was a white guy with press credentials working for a major paper. Another officer told him –illegally– to stop filming. It sort of sounds like a police department with a bully culture started this mess.


    1. Hatred, fear and entrenchment. I don’t have much hope that either the President or the Attorney General will have the vision or the compassion needed to create some change. As we have seen with similar cases they always choose security over social justice.
