The unfortunate part to me...is that none of will ever really know what happened. Each side spins information to their sides, and excludes other information. The might as well just have done no additional investigation...each of us formed our opinions in a few seconds.
The only "good" thing that comes of it...is renewed visiability concering police issues, and issues that the poor (minorities and not) deal with every day. And yes, poverty comes complete with crime and "thugs"...duh.
