    For one the Police Chief isn't a member of that community. He's the Police Chief of St. Louis County, not Ferguson. He has no authority to release the name of the cop. Thus publicly shaming him or his son does no good. Plus, we have no independent verification of the photo, but everyone is taking it at face value. Even if its true, it makes every person who has a confederate flag a racist? I think that's terrible logical for anyone. I'll grant that it's a poor chose considering what other people take it to represent, but I know plenty of people that see that symbol as something else and aren't racist people.

    So what if the son posted it on social media, that doesn't mean he intended for it to go out to the public. It's unlikely the photo was set to public settings, so there is at least a certain invasion of privacy, but hey you seem to think thats ok.

    Then again you're pretty confident that I don't give a care about St. Louis or Ferguson.
