      If you people have such bad police, and maybe you do, why don't you work to replace them? Become a peace officer yourselves. You would be perfect.

        This is as clear-cut a case of abuse of power as you are likely to see in this country.  

        - the constantly changing stories from the police
        - the confiscation of cellphone or video footage that contradicts the official narrative
        - the lack of crime scene and evidence integrity.  Even the most newly-hired mall cop would know better.
        - the inappropriate and excessive use of force against peaceful protestors
        - the use of teargas to disperse crowds before curfew had begun
        - the harassment of journalists
        - the lack of ANY evidence to support the claims that Brown attempted to steal the gun or a single "Molotov cocktail" thrown at police.
        - the absence of the slightest sign of remorse from the officer, the chief of police, or the governor who peevishly declared a state of emergency and threatened to extend it if the aggrieved civilian population didn't behave.

        And your suggestion is: Well, see if YOU could do any better.

        Not only have I worked in law enforcement (and done better in a far more dangerous environment that Ferguson), you'd have to really scrape the bottom of the barrel to find folks who would do any worse.

        Go crawl back under your bridge.
