Obama is catching some heat over this because apparently he has not blamed the white police and freaked out. Bad rap. And yes, my meds are okay.

Imagine the heat if he'd blamed white police.

Less news coverage to let anyone know there should be protests, rioting and looting.

If the public isn't informed they should be outraged they don't know to be outraged.

I have a friend who is a college professor. I joke with him that when the revolution comes, its his type who have to be disposed of first. Intellectuals, reporters, and writers pose a threat to new regimes because they have knowledge of history and are likely to expose the truth. That's anathema to power. I never expected that they would instead merely be politically neutered, criminalized and redefined as the enemy.

Um, can we wait to find out what happened before we are all outraged? And incidentally, it doesn't help the protesters' cause when Al Sharton shows up.

No. The police spokesperson has said it may take weeks for them to do an investigation.

The police confront two men on the street...the policeman gets pissed on something then try to pull one of the men into his car with his hands around his neck. The suspect struggles then runs off. The officer fires multiple shots killing the man. Witnesses say the man was on the ground with his hands behind his back when the officer fired multiple times.

If not bad enough, the police left the dead body on the street for hours and have refused to release the name of the officer.

I do not condone the riots nor the behavior of the crowds toward the police. But no, we shouldn't have to wait weeks to find out what the police say happened.

We should be outraged.
