Your second-hand story, (ALL YOUR STORIES ARE) sucks. These police are NOT IMPROPERLY TRAINED! They were defending themselves from someone who was threatening them with a dangerous weapon.(Probably on drugs.) Their bad luck was, he was black. Even his family is not blaming the police! His mother had called an ambulance. Do YOU think the medics would have subdued him? But YOUR WELL FINANCED LEFTIST BUDDIES are trained and have procedure manuals. These protests may be the undoing of all YOUR nefarious plans to win the Whitehouse! I've seen the assault of the reporter covering the LOOTING! What makes YOU think that's a protest or anyways legal? YOU PEOPLE AT AOL ARE PATHETIC AS USUSAL!
