Ferguson

It is an unusual year that a police officer in America does not have his gun taken away and used to kill him, often from inside the holster. Brown was wanted for robbery and he attacked the officer, punching him in the face and running away only after the officer shot at him. How many times can you be punched in the face before you pass out and are helpless? 

The officer chased Brown to arrest him and only shot at him again when Brown turned and charged at him. Six witnesses testified under oath that the officer shot in self defense. All of the rounds the officer fired were probably fired in less that two seconds after Brown started to charge him. Police are trained to shoot until the threat stops, it does not stop until the suspect decides to stop. 

There were over 110 police officers killed in the line of duty in America this year, can you name any of them?  The news media does a poor job of showing America the true face of violence in our nation.  Too often the thug is the focus rather than the innocent victim or the hero; that's what the SGT Says.
