Pastors differ on grand jury decision

The St. Louis-area clergy have played a prominent role in Ferguson, Missouri. They have been a voice for the community, but they have also tried to keep residents calm and lawful. Anderson Cooper speaks to Bishop Harry Jackson Jr. and Bishop Raphael Green about the grand jury decision.

    One more thing,about the partner in crime who stood on tv on more than one occasion and lied point blank, can't help but wonder why this grown man was robbing a store with a kid? What kind of parents allow their child to run with such a person? It can't be both ways, good kid hanging out with the criminal Johnson, Michael is dead, Johnson is still trying to sell his lies when he was involved in the death even more than the cop who did his job.
    I do question the Ferguson pd based on the fact that a known robber is running free and he should be in jail. So all the stats that the media spews out is nonsense, there is no magic get out of jail free cards for white people, there are more crimes committed by blacks thus more in jail and prison. Do some fact checking and learn the truth. Black on black crime, number one on the list, black on white crime is number two,and so on. You know this to be true yet it doesn't sensationalize a race so you don't put it out there. But it's still true..
    And no, I'm not a racist but the conversation that everybody keeps saying we need to have really does apply. It should start in the black community with "if you go out and break the law, no matter how small you think it is, you take the risk of advancing it to your own death". Bottom line. This is learned by example just as violence is learned, at home...

    When did things change so much that someone who ROBS a store, ASSAULTS a police officer becomes an icon?

    I empathize with the parents, but we are rewarding BAD behavior and making this a racial issue rather than a character issue.

    I feel more of a racial divide now than I have in my entire life.

    this is way out of hand, yes i feel bad for the Brown family but the bottom line is that he is a criminal, pushed over an older man to steal cigars and then assaulted a police officer. Does he think he is above the law? Shame on the idiots that feel this way. The law is the law....

    Grand jury had more people in it then any other grand jury prior and people are still unhappy. Clearly the citizens of the community have a very large problem or first there is a problem with the youth in the community and the other part of the problem is the parenting in the community or lack of parenting .
