Graphic video captures aftermath of Michael Brown killing

Warning: This blog entry contains footage that is graphic in nature. Viewer discretion is advised.

CNN has obtained new video of the scene in the immediate aftermath of the killing of unarmed teen Michael Brown. The video comes from the Facebook page of Ace Johnson. The video shows Brown's uncle at the body and a crowd surrounding the incident, demanding answers, saying "he didn't do anything."

    Why is it when black criminals who never want to be judged by the color of their skin are caught robbing a store, slapping the clerk around, blocking traffic, slamming cops back into their cars, and wrestling with cops through their window, that all they can talk about is being black?

    Aside from stealing everything not nailed to the ground, it seems like the color of their skin is the only thing that matters to them.

    How much more of this do we have to tolerate before everyone decides its acceptable to call them "nxggers" again?

    Saying that word is totally inappropriate because of its history, but if we're really being honest, what makes us want to use the word has nothing to do with history, and everything to do with behavior.

    Seriously, have you ever used that word just because you wanted to degrade someone who'd suffered the horror of being property? Neither have I–any more than I'd call someone brain damaged a "rxtxrd." These are words that deserve a more fitting target–like someone who loots a dollar-store to protest racial injustice.

      You make it out to seem like no one uses that language anymore. I agree with you and say you should be able to say whatever you want. I hear that word a lot but I don't think anyone should care. The world doesn't revolve around you guys so I see that this can work. All that we need to know is that we are God's chosen people (it's evident) and throw the finger to your opinions of us, or anything else you have to say or do with yourself. My people need to learn they shouldn't care about your views anymore, that it's not going to stop them from going anywhere they want in life. Tell me why people address problems in society if they can't find the root of the problem, how we got there, and the productive way of dealing with it. Everything you people touch... Yet it's like we came here to a destroyed Native American country out of our own free will and just happened to develop the way we did. It's never anyone elses fault for creating this hatred. I don't think people are truly racist but rather stupid or ignorant so they should be forgiven on those merrits. Racism stems from fear of various kinds so if you want to put this on display, then by all means, coward. Your approval is worthless.

      So basically you're saying that it's okay to impart someone's racial identity onto someone's actions therefore ideologically intertwining someone's perceived race with what an individual might do? Hm, I don't seem to recall the white police officer who shot Michael Brown representing all white people...so why do you do the same to people who are angry at something so egregious as killing someone that they do something "irresponsible"?

    So, an arrogant bully robs a store, slaps the owner around, parades down the middle of a street blocking traffic, then slams a cop's car door back on him forcing him back in–all while in the middle of the road–and then gets shot while tangling with a cop inside his own car.

    Then without knowing all the facts, the entire black community starts running wild through the streets destroying everything in sight, attacking the police, setting fire to buildings, looting every store in town, threatening to kill cops, and posts the addresses and pictures of cops' children online.

    What the hxll is wrong with white people?

    Of course he is in the road he was shot dead. Why? We don't know. If the community people act like civil human beings and responded to their anger in a more positive and more productive way maybe we could get to the bottom of this and an officer could be tried in court if he did wrong. Let's get real now! Acting like animals will only get you put in a cage or worst ...dead.

      Unfortunately, acting like animals gets you put in a cage if you're white. If you're black, it gets them everything they want, so the white people deciding can avoid being called racists.

    You may want to blend your colors a little when you're painting your visual pictures. There are more Caucasians killing each other in the world than blacks and mongols.
    Being racist has never solved any problems in the history of mankind.

    Thank goodness for cell phone catching them in the act. Nice job Ace J.

    What was graphic about that. There are hundreds of people killing each other every day in this country. You have black men killing black men by the scores in Chicago and you do not report that. One cop shoots one black man and the world is falling in. You guys are race baiters.

    Has anyone seen a picture of Ferguson's Chief of Police? I just can't get over how fat the guy is. A fat cop is a traitor, but a fat Chief? I don't even have a rule to fit that kind of irresponsibility. I didn't know elephant-seals were qualified for enforcement. I bet inside him is a thin guy dying to get out–and that's not a metaphor. I really think he may have eaten another person. In fact, if you compare the video to others, its clear that they used a wide-angle lens to fit his entire face on the screen.

    It may turn out that all the rioting in Ferguson is less about murder and more about the Chief constantly pulling over anyone with a McDonald's bag, and saying "are you gonna finish that?"

    I can't believe he's a full-bird colonel rank. The only department he should be a colonel of is KFC.
