Do these leaders and supporters want justice or do they want revenge? The true story is coming to light. The footage from the police cruiser has yet to be reveled. The footage of the strong arm store robbery, the officers severe injuries, and eyewitness accounts matching the officers account of events say a great deal about the officers options in the situation. I'm not advocating for the end result of this tragic situation. I'm stating that we are all responsible for our actions. This young man according to all accounts made a poor choice, assaulted an officer of the law and displayed behavior that he knew was wrong prior to this situation. If people truly love their children, make sure to teach them there are grave consequences for such behavior.

I wonder if the reporter will ask any of the local leaders what the black community can do to improve race relations. What can they do to improve the perception that the police and non-blacks have of blacks that cause these problems.

Can the reporter ask the local leaders to watch Jonathan Gentry/You Tube. 6 minutes and 18 seconds could be time well spent, if they are truly interested in improving race relations.
