The deaths of Michael Brown and that one other guy have saddened America deeply. (At least one person in America.) It's not fair that police have to kill innocent people. Police are on this Earth and created by god to protect us, not kill us....

I have been reading that the predominatly Christian Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarwak have warned they might secede if Malaysia implements Hudud (Malaysian version of Shariah law) across it's states. In other words, if a harsh new set of laws is implemented, these 2 states will leave Malaysia and become 2 seperate independent nations. They have their own flag, governemnt, and generally, a set of laws. I would l...

I understand what these people did. World war 2 had ended in 1945. That was 70 years ago. A couple hundred years ago we killed thousands of American Indians because we invaded their land and put them to work. The people that did it are still called heroes today. No one would have hunted them down if they were alive. These people were just following their gut. Some of them were good people as well. They snuck bread to dying children or were doctors in the infirmaries. They helped people. All the...

I don't understand why Sony Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton decided make a movie Threatening the life of North Korea Leader Kim Jong- Un thinking that it would funny. First of all its against the law to threaten the life of another human being especially Kim Jong- Un the leader of another country that the United States does not have a good relationship with. I don't condone the that course of action Kim Jong - Un has taken to retaliate but what would you do if your life was threaten....

Darren Wilson was in the right

thatguy554
JayConar

The fact of the matter with this case is that Michael Brown has no argument for his defense. I'm not saying that it isn't horrible to lose a family member, but when someone assaults an officer of the law, you cannot pull an about-face and say that the officer was in the wrong. Here are the facts, -13 shots were fired at Brown, only a small number actually hit. -Blood and DNA from Brown were found on officer Wilson's weapon and pant leg, as well as inside the squad car, supporting the argu...
