Eugene is not one of the brighter columnists but he descended even lower than his normal rant against white people by calling the police tactics needlessly provocative. Provocative? A crowd that rampaged long before the verdict? A crowd bent on destruction? A crowd undaunted by tear gas? C’mon Eugene, you’re better than that.

Robinson suffers more than most columnist from bias. He’s especially biased, as is President Obama in favor of one group of Americans. Their usual patter is: “they didn’t do anything wrong and here’s why they did it.” He blames the police for allowing the rioters to riot instead of allowing them to riot.

In Robinson’s mind the riots should have been expected so it’s the fault of the police for not preparing better for the riots. With this kind of thinking is it any wonder why people refuse to take Robinson seriously?

Robinson isn’t as smart or clever as Obama who knows better how to lie about facts. The evidence presented to the Grand Jury was dispositive. Brown should not have done what he did. Wilson’s gun fired into the door of the police car from the inside and Brown’s finger was hit by the bullet. There is some evidence that Brown had his hands on Wilson’s gun but even if he didn’t, why did Brown stop leaving the crime scene, turn around and “charge the officer”? Charging a cop is always the wrong thing to do. It got Brown killed. That’s never the best outcome but under the circumstances it’s not a surprise. If Wilson hadn’t shot Brown someone else would have done it.

How do we know that? Brown was a known bully. He was caught on tape pushing a much smaller adult male who tried to get him to pay for the cigars he took. One instance of bullying is not usually enough to label someone a bully but in this case it clearly is. Brown got it wrong. So did Obama, Holder, Sharpton, Rev. Wright and Robinson.

Conspiracy? No, but part of the disrespect of the police that’s become too routine in far too many American cities. Proof? Verification of the Disrespect for the police? It’s a bigger problem than just black disrespect for the police. Here’s how to prove that.

Colin Flaherty is an award winning reporter and author of the #1 best selling book White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore it. How about riots in Philly; Detroit; Chester; Miami in 1980 – following the acquittal of four Miami-Dade Police officers in the death of Arthur McDuffie. McDuffie, an African-American who died from injuries sustained at the hands of four white officers trying to arrest him after a high-speed chase;
1991: Crown Heights Riot – May – between African Americans and the area’s large Hasidic Jewish community, over the accidental killing of a Guyanese immigrant child by an Orthodox Jewish motorist. In its wake, several Jews were seriously injured; Yankel Rosenbaum, was killed; and a non-Jewish man, was killed by a group of African-American men.
1991: Overtown, Miami – In the heavily Black section against Cuban Americans, like earlier riots there in 1982 and 1984.
1992: The 1992 Los Angeles riots – April 29 to May 5 – following the acquittal of police officers on trial regarding the assault of Rodney King.
1992: Harlem, Manhattan in New York City – July – Blacks and Puerto Ricans against the New York Police Department, around the time of the 1992 Democratic National Convention being held there.
1995: St. Petersburg, Florida riot of 1996, caused by protests against racial profiling and police brutality.
2001: 2001 Cincinnati Riots – April – in the African-American section of Over-the-Rhine.
2005: Toledo, Ohio – Neo-Nazis and white supremacists marched in North Park, a mostly African-American section of town.
2009: Oakland, CA – Oscar Grant Murder Riots.

Obama says anger is an “understandable reaction” to the grand jury’s finding. What! Why are we supposed to praise the riots just because someone says burning out businesses are “peaceful protests”?
