Obama: Teen’s Shooting ‘Heartbreaking’

Ian Swanson and Justin Sink, The Hill, August 12, 2014

President Obama called for “reflection and understanding” after the “heartbreaking” killing of an unarmed black 18-year-old shot to death by police in the town of Ferguson, Mo., over the weekend.

In his first comments about a killing that has triggered riots in the St. Louis suburb, Obama acknowledged that the shooting of Michael Brown has “prompted strong passions” and urged people to have a discussion “in a way that heals, not in a way that wounds.”

“Along with our prayers, that’s what Michael and his family, and our broader American community, deserve,” Obama said in a statement issued while he vacationed in Martha’s Vineyard.

The president’s comments came after protestors and riot police clashed late Monday night in an area just blocks from the site of the shooting. Police officers shot tear gas and rubber bullets into a crowd of demonstrators who refused to disperse, according to multiple media reports.

Over the weekend, violent protests and looting stemming from the death led to more than 30 arrests on charges ranging from assault to burglary.

The lawmakers, including Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio), Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) and Lacy Clay (D-Mo.) said there was “evidence of racial profiling by that department in the recent past” and that only the federal government had the resources and experience to “give this case the close scrutiny” it deserved.

“When Trayvon Martin was first shot, I said that this could have been my son,” Obama said. “Another way of saying that is Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago. And when you think about why, in the African-American community at least, there’s a lot of pain around what happened here, I think it’s important to recognize that the African-American community is looking at this issue through a set of experiences and a history that doesn’t go away.”

Obama said that there were “very few African-American men” who hadn’t experienced prejudice and urged those who did not understand the frustration “in a historical context.” The president also noted “a history of racial disparity in the application of our criminal laws.”

    I’m glad to see that the President took the occasion of the brief break he had between his two rounds of golf yesterday to take such a strong clear unequivocal stand.

    • proud white

      QD it is baffling isn’t it. blacks commit more crime than whites at the same proportion men commit more crime than women. I was not a fan of Obama’s before he came into office but I never thought he would end up being as terrible as he is

      • Dave H

        Actually, thanks to brilliant investigation by Cliff Kinkade and Jerome Corsi, it was well known that Obama was a life-long hard core marxist long before he was elected prez. It was also known he was raised a Muslim and travelled as a foreign national under an Indonesian passport. Given that background and all the commies he has associated with and appointed, there should be no surprise at the lawlessness of his administration, his war on whites, and his appeasement of his people in the mideast. He has implemented the Alinsky plan and it is near completion.
        Add in the appalling violent criminality of the black community, it’s predictable we will have another outbreak of Rodney King/Watts syndrome. Shame the tire store owner was too cowardly to defend his bussness as the local gun store owner did. Where were the cops – writing reports? People actually learned from the smart little oriental business owners who defended their stores in Watts. Nothing stops looters faster than a pile of corpses at the door!
        A truly sad problem is that the left has controlled government indoctrination schools since the 1960’s. Proving someone is a communist means nothing to the below 40 generations. It’s going to tough to defeat this no-information constituency given the impotence of the Republican lemmings.

        • Mergatroyd

          He said exactly what he was going to do far before the election so no one should be surprised. The media hid it, though, and refused to vet him as they did every other candidate that they dragged through the mud, especially Sarah Palin, even to the point of mocking her Down’s Syndrome son. It doesn’t get lower than that.

          And no, and before anyone accuses me of endorsing Sarah Palin, I am not, but I seem to get that every time I post so much as her name.

    • AmericanCitizen

      If the races were reversed? No news story, certainly no riots or protests. Then again, there isn’t a place in America where Whites run wild like animals at the slightest impulse.

You have to search the ferguson Missouri local news to get the scoop because they are keeping this secret and they are keeping the race of the woman and suspects secret

          Just like the Newsom-Christian car jacking, kidnapping, rape, torture and murder of two whites by 4 buck negroes. To date, 90% of Americans know nothing about this.

          During the liberty city riots (Miami) whites were slaughtered, two brothers had their tongues cut out while alive, some were run over back and forth until their bodies resembled road kill, whites were shot, stabbed, beaten to death…..try and find accounts of that..ALL scrubbed

      • Dave H

        Or months! It only makes news when whites commit crimes. Look at Chicago. Dozens of blacks get shot by other blacks, and it rarely makes the local news. They have the equilivalent of Aurora every weekend, but no one cares when blacks get whacked. That doesn’t even garner a phony excuse from the marxist state media!

        • Cid Campeador

          The so called Civil Rights leaders always wring their hands and cry out for the solution to Black men killing OTHER Black men. Whites can infer that they’re quite OK with Black men killing White people.

      • Mergatroyd

        If the races were reversed, there would have been an immediate show of force. Immediate.

        The SPLC and ADL would have called out their goon squads and the local police would have pulled out every military weapon they’ve got and called for reinforcements from the feds. Arrests would be made along with handing the names of “White Supremacists” over to employers for career destruction.

      • Alucard_the_last

        Case in point, Ruby Ridge. No protests from whites, media barely covered the story.

      Is he good at golf at least? Is this guy good at anything, I mean he can’t even play basketball. Does Obama have any ability whatsoever? Are White liberals at all embarrassed that they backed this non-entity?

    Incidents like this increase racial tension and alienate whites from the US government. It can only help.

    • http://www.ambrosekane.com/ bluffcreek1967

      Good point. If it’s not been made clear already, every white person should be alienated from our U.S. government. They do not stand in solidarity with whites, they intentionally seek to replace us with non-white third-worlders, they fight against our racial history and heritage, and they’ve allowed our people for years to be victimized by blacks and Hispanics – and all the while, they think this is just fine.

      I don’t trust our judges. I don’t trust our government – and this includes those from both parties!

      • tetrapod

        Alienated as charged.

      • Chasmania

        I have, for a very long time, felt that it MUST get much worse before whites start to wake up and shake off the yoke of these tyrants, so when things incrementally creep down the drain I am torn between the knowledge of the trouble it causes for people, and the knowledge that it is all for the better in the long run.

    • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

      What it should do before that is alienate whites from the black undertow and from political cults ranging from the left to the libertarian right. I don’t think this is much a matter of the ethics of state power, as much as it is frustration with who is wielding that power and on behalf of whom.

      Which reminds me of something: It’s not as if I should be surprised, but the libertarian right is acting utterly atrocious on this matter. All they can see with this issue is the question of militarized police. They certainly won’t ever denounce the black undertow (must not be racist), much less denouncing it at least as much as they do militarized cops.

      If you think militarized cops are a problem, then fine, so do I. But you better be at least or if not more indignant about Africanus Bellcurvius. If you’re not, then you’re a lunatic or a hypocrite, in which case you can take all your fretting and hand wringing about militarized police and stick it where the sun doesn’t shine.

      Also realize that the undertow is the main reason why the cops are having to become more militarized. You don’t combat raging black mobs with Andy Taylor and Barney Fife. You do it with bad**es wielding scary looking swag and gear. I can pretty much assure you that the main reason why there hasn’t been any serious rioting since the first night is that the “militarized police” of Ferguson and the other agencies in there helping aren’t having any of that. Just project pure power now, worry about the Constitution later.

      One more thing, comma, Rand Paul: What happened in Ferguson was not the result of the looted and burned businesses not being tax exempt.

    “Through a set of experiences and a history that doesn’t go away”.

    A “history” which, incidentally, none of these idiots were alive to experience in the first place.

    But by all means, Mr Obama, make absolutely sure that history NEVER goes away!

    • tetrapod

      Spot on.

      Hussein has said, in effect, that black resentment, shiftlessness, and criminality should be understood in terms of a “history that never goes away”. Could it be that looting naggers themselves are the cause of that?

      I myself have been the victim of robbery, assault, and burglary, all at the hands of blacks. I saw my parents grow old in a neighborhood that turned into a crime-ridden ghetto as soon as blacks moved in. My parents were trapped because property values had plummeted. They were forced to live in fear behind locked doors. Even a simple summer evening on the front porch was impossible because of blaring ghetto blasters.

      So Hussein you can take your ” experience” and stick it somewhere.

  • Oldcorporal

    The usual hooey from the usual sources. What if some White teen is killed by the police somewhere (you know it’s happened in this country, multiple times; the news media just aren’t interested if the “victim” is White). Will the Mulatto Messiah issue an impassioned statement about THAT? Will the Black Caucus “sniff out racism” in THAT death? By the way, they think they smell “racism,” but it’s just their breath blowing back in their faces.

  • Ograf

    No matter what those looting, lying, violent low lifes say, I do not believe that a police officer just decided to shoot an innocent teen for something to do. Now we will hear about this for another 3 months. In my opinion the laws should be enforced as to protests and looters ought to be shot. If these people have it so hard in U.S. they are free to go to Haiti, or Africa or some other black paradise in the world.

      Or Jonathon Foster. Also 12, murdered on Christmas Eve with a blowtorch. But, as Luca says, it’s a very long list. I think Jonathon’s heinous murder got very little press, because it just exemplifies the savagery of a demographic. And, it happened under BHO’s watch.

        To terrible to even think about. As a family who also lost a young son a picture like above just really hits a raw nerve.
        Unfortunately most people will read or hear your president’s speech and will think what a thoughtful, understanding, eloquent and compassionate statement that Obama has made, he will be regarded as a true leader, a healer of the nation especially by the media and his rating will go up a few points. Most people can just not see through the man, his one-sidedness, double standards and hypocrisy are staggering be it on racial issues at home or the Muslim threat to our very civilization.

    • Nonhumans

      He wasn’t trying to calm and control a rioting mass of his own monkey brethren after those murders. Oh and those murder victims were white.

  • Ginna

    Look at it this way. If Society was Asian instead of western do you think those Blacks would be rioting and looting? Want to bet Al Sharpton would be shooting off his mouth? Do you think Muslims would put up with it? Or Latinos? Racial profiling, my foot. We don’t do ENOUGH of it, not too much.

  • DLRisVH

    “When Trayvon Martin was first shot, I said that this could have been my son,” Obama said. “Another way of saying that is Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago. And when you think about why, in the African-American community at least, there’s a lot of pain around what happened here, I think it’s important to recognize that the African-American community is looking at this issue through a set of experiences and a history that doesn’t go away.”

    Obama said that there were “very few African-American men” who hadn’t experienced prejudice and urged those who did not understand the frustration “in a historical context.” The president also noted “a history of racial disparity in the application of our criminal laws.”

    More reasons for blacks to relocate to Africa where they will be surrounded by people like them and not experience these racial disparities.

    From what I hear, much of the St. Louis area is truly hellish. I’d say racial profiling is probably pretty reasonable.

    • Reverend Bacon

      Exactly. These people are up to their rear ends in alligators, and no one is draining the swamp. I don’t know the facts here, and there may even have been a black cop involved. But if the cop did shoot too soon, it’s hard to blame him. It’s a war zone.

      • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

        Here’s one factor I thought about today:

        While Ferguson is two-thirds black, a lot of the blacks are working to middle class homeowners. So why there, why now?

        I looked at the doomed QT on Google Maps and saw that it is pretty close to a lot of medium and low rise apartments and duplexes. Over and over again after Sunday night, that general area is where both the riot cops and the “protesting” (i.e. wishing they could riot) blacks have been confronting each other. I now think that those apartments are full of Section 8, and have an unusually ultra-ratchet bell curvier than usual collection of blacks living in them. A real hornets nest.

        When I get back home, if I’m feeling particularly courageous, I’ll drive by those areas to check it out, some late morning when Bell Curve City is still sleeping, and after all this has died down.

        Ferguson itself only has three black cops out of 53 and two of those three are Sergeants. And none of the the non-black cops are anything other than white.

    • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

      If you don’t live too close to Ground Zero, and you don’t watch the news, then really you would have no idea what’s going on. Yes, there have been spotty incidents outside of the main party area, but a lot of those I think would have happened anyway, typical black behavior rather than a subset of the rioting.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Did Obama condemn the rioters?

    No, because he agrees with what they’re doing.

    What about the four Americans who died while pleading for help? What about the 2-star general who was shot in the back of the head?

    Obama only regrets that the dead kid wasn’t White; he does not care about Whites, only blacks, Muslims and gays.

    Brown’s pal Dorian Johnson said the officer grabbed Brown around the neck and tried to pull him through the window of his police cruiser.

    At this point, it doesn’t matter what the truth is, all blacks want is to rob, riot, loot and create mayhem. Sharpton is there, Jesse arrived to further fan the flames and the president’s “words” did not help.

    This cop doesn’t stand a chance even if he’s cleared after an internal investigation and the FBI finds he acted appropriately. Holder will not allow it and something will be drummed up to punish him for life like a “violation of civil rights.”

    • kikz2

    The president said that there were “very few African-American men” who hadn’t experienced prejudice…
    As the son of two tenured academic PhD’s, he’s one of them.

    … and
    urged those who did not understand the frustration “in a historical
    context.”…
    is there some part of the quote missing? That fragment makes no sense.

    Personally I’ve done all the “reflection and understanding after the heartbreaking”… that I need to do. If it were me in charge of ensuring the safety and protection of the property of the people of St. Louis, I’d cut off the electrical power to the neighborhood of the rioters until it became clear that the power wouldn’t come back on until all the rioting and looting stopped. And for the sake of public safety, I’d blockade all the streets going into these neighborhoods. No one goes in: no one goes out – until the nonsense stops.

    And I’d invite the BBC and all the French:German:Dutch:Swedish:”United Nations” NGO people to come and watch how I handle 21st century civil insurrection in the USA. It’s not 1968 anymore and no one should be getting billions of dollars of tax monies for acting like savages.

    Then I’d go to Martha’s Vineyard and chill.

    One of the big undertow complaints is the lack of blacks on the Ferguson P.D. The Chief of Ferguson said today that hardly any blacks ever apply to his department, even though he wishes they would (to shut the undertow and the alphabet gang up).

    The reason blacks won’t is because blacks who want to be cops in St. Louis have many better options, and all the departments around here will be heavily recruiting them for AA purposes. Who wants to work in a relatively low pay high risk department like Ferguson? All other options (high pay low risk, high pay high risk, low pay low risk) are by definition more attractive jobs.

      Molotov cocktails thrown at police tonight. Black Panthers are there.

        Saw that. First off, it’s not just blacks the mob, some white left wingers and anarchists are in there helping them. They’re the ones who probably came up with the idea of doing a Molotov cocktail, and actually did most of the assembly. Second, I actually think this is good news; it’s a sign of desperation in the mob, that the cops have them so tightly boxed in that they’re desperate to do something or to make something happen.

        If the 72 hour rule holds true, tonight is the last night of this mess.

    Despite the deaths of many important Americans, soldiers, doctors, and other people of note, our Lord Obama took time to stop golfing to pay tribute to an individual who resembled Obama in so many ways. Having met his demise while grapping with a member of law enforcement, Obama paid tribute to this choirboy insuring that the tens of thousands dying atop of far away mountain waited till the American public realized the importance of this infant god.

    I’m supposed to be both having fun and doing work here at the state fair. Me having to follow the events from back home while being 200 miles away has meant that I’ve had to sacrifice the fun part.

    The race hucksters never want to know the facts—just innuendo and assumptions based upon rumors.

    The facts are still under review, yet the ‘community’ insists on rioting, burning and looting—not sure if this is a protest or an opportunity for lawlessness and stolen free stuff.

    In the end, we the taxpayers will likely be saddled with rebuilding their neighborhoods—without one word of thanks.

    Furthermore, REGARDLESS of the facts—even if the police action is validated by reports that Brown assaulted the officer and tried to get to his weapon, the ‘community’ and race hucksters will still demand retribution.

    Look at the Trayvon Martin situation—he was vindicated and yet the media, Eric Holder, the New Black Panthers and race hucksters will force Zimmerman to always have to look over his shoulder to avoid being murdered.

    No wonder the Police Chief of Ferguson, MO refuses to name the officer involved.

    In the Christian world-view Robin Williams, a suicide, is going straight to hell. But for liberals he was funny so that puts him in the running for sainthood.

    Dillon Taylor. 20 years old. Unarmed. Killed by police on 8/11. Was wearing headphones, walking away, and didn’t see or hear the officer.

    Not a peep about Dillon Taylor of Salt Lake City.

    This is politics in the new millennium. Old fashioned race baiting! It is so below the dignity of the office of the President!

      You think this is something new? Ovomit and Eric the Red have been doing this for the last 6 years.

  • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

    I think I know why the cops are so insistent in driving the media, both traditional and new, out of Ferguson before dark. And this might be an explanation for the no fly zone including news helicopters. For one, if they’re not there to give the mob any publicity, it might make the mob give up and go home. These kind of mobs love and feed on publicity, and that publicity in turn encourages more riots in more places, it germinates the rioting and makes it spread. Cut off the publicity and you cut off the ability for the tension to spread and maybe even make the current tension dissipate. For another, maybe the cops are getting ready to go in and thump some thick skulls or do something to get this rabble to stop that they don’t want the world to see.

    White people. Look around you. YOU AND YOUR WHITE NEIGHBOR PUT OBAMA INTO OFFICE … TWICE!!! Blacks only comprise 15% of the population, at best.

    I could excuse a one-time vote … but twice???

    So, before you get angry at Blacks “wilding” in the streets, ask yourself — WHAT IN GOD’S NAME IS THE MATTER WITH THE WHITE MAN? WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH HIS THINKING!!!

    Obama “apologizes” for America because you self-flagellating, absolution-seeking, nincompoops voted for it! The White man went “… looking for love in all the wrong places” by voting Obama into office.

    Get the memo, White man! Most Blacks will NEVER like you!!! It’s like oil and water, baby … like east and west … never the twain shall meet.

    And before I let y’all off the hook, many of you will turn right around and vote for another socialist in Hillary Clinton.

    Some of y’all just make me wanna puke …

    So there. I said what I had to say. Let the hate mail begin.

    Have a nice day.

    • R.U. Serious

      My sentiments exactly! I can’t explain it either. Only Whites are so self destructive towards their own best interests. Must be a genetic deficiency. High IQ without a rational and logical thought process.

    Comparing America from 100 years ago to today is what’s “heartbreaking.”

  • Michigan Patriot

    A Black Caucus ? Where is MLK jr when you need him ? There was never a White Caucus ever in America founded by White Christians but a hypocritical black caucus is peachy keen ! This racist, parasitic club won’t let any non-communist black into their mist since its bigoted founding many decadent decades ago.Where is the republican supposed oppositional party doing about this hate crime group the last forty years ? Silence of the lambs.

  • Professor Blodnock

    President Obama called for “reflection and understanding” after the “heartbreaking” killing of an unarmed black 18-year-old shot to death by police in the town of Ferguson, Mo., over the weekend.
    The Black Fuehrer is “heartbroken” of the killing of Michael Brown, how touching.
    Is he heartbroken over the numerous murders of young white women and children by black men who look like him?
    Is he “heartbroken” over the knock out assaults on white people by wolf packs of Black thugs who also look like him?
    Is he “heartbroken” over the destruction of the Businesses and homes destroyed by the savage assault being carried out by his worthless kind?

  • Ringo Lennon

    Some blacks are saying loot in white neighborhoods. Chicago area , where I live, is only 54% white. (Mexicans drag down the percentage). What this means is White Chicagoans need to arm themselves to the teeth. I need an expert to tell me what kind of weapons I need to protect myself?

    • Luca

      9mm pistols with multiple magazines, AR-15 semi-auto rifle with multiple magazines and a 12 ga. pump shotgun loaded with 00 buckshot . You may want to add a .357 handgun for close quarters and lovely sound effects. Be sure to take a training course and go to the range for practice.

      • AFlaVet

        He’ll never be able to buy any of those self defense suggestions in Chicago. He should pack up and move to Florida or anywhere they still grant you second amendment “privileges”.

        Thanks, man.

      I’ve read that most burgulers don’t stay around after getting shot by anything. At the very least it takes the fight right out of them and any gunshot wound will require medical treatment.

      I bought a 20 guage shotgun for my Mom who lived alone. I figured it’d be easier to handle than a 12 guage yet still makes the unwelcoming shotgun sound when cocked.

      Thus you may want something lighter than a .357, although my friend has one and it’s a very nice piece.

      • Ringo Lennon

        Much thanks.

  • Cid Campeador

    Why didn’t Michael and his friend go to the sidewalk as per the advice of the police?
    Everyone with a working brain cell knows that it isn’t safe to walk in a heavily trafficked street.
    If the police advise/ tell you to do something DO IT!

    • http://www.coinsandhistory.com/ Claudius_II

      By a strange coincidence, the day of the shooting there was a black guy who decided to sit on the grass in front of my apt building in Brazil. The guy was a tall skinny black with long dreadlocks and dirty clothes.

      Two security guards were there arguing with him, trying to get him to leave with a third 10 ft away for backup. This is private property. Most of us would leave immediately if trespassing and requested by a security guard to do so. Yet this one clearly was not leaving despite the 3 guards.

      I believe blacks everywhere, (or at least in the USA & Brazil) have a certain “defiant attitude” which most civilized people find unusual.

    There’s going to be a big political meeting at a church in Ferguson involving a lot of high level elected officials. One of the big themes, so I understand, that’s going to be bandied about there is “demilitarizing the police.”

    If you are a leftist or a libertarian, your assignment is to write the following sentence one million times:

    At this time and place, demilitarizing the police equals surrendering to the black undertow.

  • AFlaVet

    It’s now “Zero Dark Thirty” right here.

  • KyraNelson

    President Obama is correct when he speaks of “racial disparity.” All the racially motivated knockout punch attacks are done BY blacks ON whites. 95% of the rest of violent crimes against (white) persons are committed by blacks. Now that’s what I call disparity!

  • Ringo Lennon

    People with worst attitudes: 1. Negroes 2. Cops. Ever get pulled over by a loser cop who was a nerd then joined the Police Academy so he could boss people around?

  • Alucard_the_last

    I ‘love’ the way the cop is guilty until proven innocent and the negro is just another innocent, hard working, moral ‘man’. The police don’t just shoot someone who is walking down the street with the Bible in hand.

  • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

    In the last 12-24 hours, there has been a lot of hobby horse complaining from blacks, liberals, libertarians and the media, mainly about police militarization and police “harassment” of the media. I fear that all that whining has hit its mark with the politicians, and that the politicians are slowly going to yank the cops’ chains, even though the cops have done good job over the last two nights keeping things relatively under control. Which means it could start to get bad again at and around Ground Zero with violence, rioting and looting starting tonight.

  • 4321realist

    I see where the t.v. station also has their black teleprompter reader to make sure their face to the world is 50% black, although blacks represent just 13% of the population.

    This is Mark Lloyd’s and Holder’s manipulations forcing t.v. stations to hire all these blacks. And I’m betting that only about 5% of them can qualify as a professional journalist.

    Also it was probably a black who wrote the tag on the video that says: “Man shot walking dog down quite street,” not knowing how to spell quiet, rather than making a typo.

    I just wonder how many are also replacing whites behind the scenes.
