Sean Belt BS: Ferguson, Missouri / Big Mike Brown (65* d) RE: BS: Ferguson, Missouri / Big Mike Brown 22 Aug 14

meself, Maybe I'm reading something into your comments that isn't there, but you seem to have a problem with my use of "handled" in regards to the way that the Ferguson and St. Louis City police approached the shootings of black men in recent days. I can't imagine what that problem would be. I merely meant "handled" as a way of saying "the approach taken". Would that have suited you better?

I'm sure that you're on the right track that the difference in how information has been released or not (just today the Ferguson police released an almost completely redacted incident report on the shooting of Michael Brown to the ACLU - ugh. Do they never learn?) has a lot to do with the apparent justification of the police actions. However, I'd say that one of the things we need to be working towards in this country is more open and transparent (and honest) dealings with the police. Maybe citizen review boards would be a step in the right direction.
