  1. I find it ironic that the Ferguson police was worried about releasing the name of the officer who shot Mr. Brown. The police said that deaths threats were aimed at the officer.

    What about the safety of the witness who saw what happened? Shouldn’t we be concerned about him. In situations like this the police often target the witness with harassment. Nobody mentions this! TIME TO WAKE UP!
