The Thing That Bothers Me

About this Michael Brown killing by the police is that when there is a questionable use of lethal force, the victim is always black. I'm not inclined to believe that every black teenager is innocent and pure, but I'm not inclined to believe the opposite, either. Why was he shot multiple times? Why use lethal force if he was unarmed? And if there were multiple officers at the scene, why discharge your weapons at all?

Obviously, the rioting and the looting doesn't help anything.

Lord, have mercy!
