Why isn't this Ferguson story posted on the liberal rags?

    It's not being reported because the lynch mob has already convicted the cop. No justice, no peace (I.e. If this cop isn't convicted, no matter what the facts, there will be riots all over).

    CNN quoted an unnamed friend a couple of days ago saying Brown punched Wilson. But there are other stories quoting unnamed friends talking about what a good guy Wilson where the friends never mentioned he was beaten badly.

    Makes it sound like the poor cop was beaten to within an inch of his life. And cops never lie about stuff either.

    I have been punched in the head and didn't realize any issues until a couple of hours later when I saw the knot on the side of my head - who knows what the truth of this situation is- which is why there will be an investigation - however I do think in the end the occifer will be exhonerated

    They don't report it because they are too busy reporting on witnesses that have only revenge and the cop is guilty on their mind.

    I bet you'd notice if your orbital bone was broken or you'd been "nearly beaten unconscious". But beyond that, what has led you to conclude the cop has done nothing wrong?

    And the orbital bone thing could have easily been done by one of his cop buddies after the fact. If the cop didn't go directly from the scene to the hospital, there's no way of knowing. That will be interesting to find out. Did the cop go directly to the hospital? If he was that badly beaten, he should have.

    It would have saved a lot of trouble if they could have released that information as soon as people started making a big deal about a cop killing another unarmed man.

    Why the delay?

    It was like the police department went out of their way to make this worse than it needed to be.

    I had an orbital fracture a few years back. Playing pickup football, a big dude (6'3" 215lbs) hit me at a sprint, the crown of his head went into my left cheek. It hurt but I didn't think it was anything more than a bruise. 2 days later I got it checked out because I was having concussion symptoms, had a nice sized break below my eye and a long recovery from that injury. I finished the game thinking I was ok, just bruised. Thankfully didn't take any more contact to the head or it could have been far worse.

    Bottom line, you can have a break like that and not know about it until later. Now, being "nearly beaten unconscious" sounds like an exaggeration. It's probably fair to say that he was hit hard. Who knew the cops or the media would sensationalize a story to fit their narrative? ;)

    The sad part is, in addition to the death of the teenager, that this would be a non-story if just one little fact was changed--the officer was black. Then, there would be little to no media, no al sharpton, no one would even care much. That's sad. The media loves this and on the very liberal stations they have the gall to report that there is a war on black men based on this incident. That black men are getting mowed down by cops all over. It's crazy.

    The phrase I absolutely love is that whenever one of these incidents come up is that we need to have a "conversation" or "dialogue" on race. What the hell does that mean? It sounds nice but has little meaning because the story blows by and no one does anything until the next incident arises.

    Just wacky

    Maybe they were trying to get their 'facts' right. Or maybe everything is on the up and up. As is so often the case, we will probably never know for sure.

    Maybe it would help if 50 out 53 cops in the Ferguson police department weren't white. Ferguson is predominantly black. The white cops don't live there.

    Ya swelling and bruises eyes do not show up right away. That being said, wait for the facts to come out!

    Then you have the Missouri governor who says the cop will be "vigorously prosecuted."The lynch mob is out in full force and anything short of a conviction in this case, again no matter what the facts are, will lead to outrage, and chaos.

    I guess you trust cops a lot more than I do.
