You may have heard about it

A cop shot an unarmed young man outside of a convenience store. Allegedly, there is a video.  The police say it will be released, but it could take "days, weeks, or months".

There have been protests and riots. You know the story.

No you don't.  There have been no protests, no riots. The cop was black, the victim was white. Read it here..

I know folks from Indy and all over the nation have made their way to Missouri. Who is on their way to Utah?


 Is this thing on?

You're fibbing! No one in Indiana would bother going to Missouri. Say it ain't so Joe! Say it ain't so.

My post today has a different idea on how to stop the free shopping madness in Ferguson.

"There have been no protests, no riots."


Poor Hoose. Just can't get anything whole, can you? Here's a helpful hint: trying googling the victim's name before you get all angry-downtrodden-white-guy on us.

"Utah protesters demand justice for Dillon Taylor, others killed by police."

Read the whole Aug. 19 story from the Salt Lake City Tribune.

I mean you were totally wrong.

"Salt Lake City protesters keep up the pressure to check police power"

"Demonstration, rally in downtown SLC calls for justice for Dillon Taylor and others killed by police."

again from the SLC Trib.

Maybe you'll get your wish and they'll bring out the tear gas and riot gear after all.

Anyone who riots, loots and destroys a private business as a "protest" is a criminal.

If the ywant to rally a tthe police station, fine. Anything else no support from me. I do not care if it is in Ferguson, Salt Lake City, or east LA.

They are criminals and deserve treatment as such. That does include tear gas if they fail to disperse.
