    Cop Marches with Protesters.

    This is how it should be done. Kudos to this man for realizing that sympathy and empathy is a more powerful tool than trying to control.

    FUQ-Johnson, a Ferguson, Mo. native, marched along with those upset by the shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed teen killed Saturday afternoon by a Ferguson cop.

    Good for him

    I've lost sympathy for many of these protesters because it's obvious they're using this as an excuse to loot and destroy private property. If they decided to burn down the local sty, I'd be cool with that. It wasn't the local retail store owners who murdered the kid.
    “If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind? ” -Bastiat

    I don't "need" to openly carry a handgun or own an "assault weapon" any more than Rosa Parks needed a seat on the bus.

    Never heard of the man. MSHP is no friend of OC.

    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare

    The news seems to be distorting the amount of protesters who are acting like thugs compared to those who are engaged in just exercising their right. I have no sympathy for looters either. Although I wouldn't cry if they tore down the police station.

    I don't know much about that, and don't doubt you. I do like the actions of this one individual in this one instance.

    Like every LEA, there are mostly good cops in the cop shop. What is not good is the institutional policy that requires a good cop to separate his moral compass from his on the job acts. He is a top dog in Troop C, I have not heard of any OCers being hassled by Troop C, but I don't hear everything. I place that troop in the "reasonable" and "rights respecting" column at this time. Until they do something, that I become aware of, that compels me to move them to the other column.
