Despite all the cover-ups, lies, and initial nondisclosures of information, such as Darren Wilson's name, after he shot Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri; a person with a cell phone video came forward. So; for all the illegal seizures of cell phones and cameras, all the shutting down of local and national news coverage, and all the false arrests and unlawful detentions of journalists, we have a clear video that shows a police officer shooting an unarmed young man's head and killing him, apparently because that's what the cop felt like doing at the time, and the checks and balances upon which we depend to keep government from getting out of control isn't as helpful to some citizens as it is to others. But there really are no secrets, as the Midwest is learning.
Instead of the overused Christian message, "God hates fags", and Jews, and politicians, and entertainers, and many, many others, Kansas once had people who actually cared about the world living within it's borders. Here is a picture that was taken in 1967, during the Vietnam War, outside of the City Building in Wichita. Where did all those informative signs, and the creative sign painters, all go?

Anonymous has postulated a suggestion that all the ado and delays, such as stalling about disclosing the name of the offending officer to completely militarizing Ferguson, Missouri; was really a pathetic attempt to buy more time in order to come up with a really good excuse and story to explain why a white cop would shoot another unarmed black teenager. Sounds logical to me. How many times do they want to sell this theme? Michael Brown was shot because a police officer and a police force thought there should not be a problem with killing him. He was not a robbery suspect, and did not have a criminal record. He wasn't even "in the wrong place at the wrong time".
Hopefully, authorities in the Midwest will start to understand what they are doing when they pull the pendulum of racism and violence so far in one direction that when it is released, it cannot help but swing an equal distance in the opposite direction.
