    Riverfront Times Seeks Juvenile Records for Officer Darren Wilson
    In response to a number of inquiries today, the Riverfront Times confirms that it is seeking the juvenile records of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, the man who shot and killed Michael Brown.

    After the Post-Dispatch announced Friday that it is seeking the juvenile records for Brown, many people on Twitter asked that the same scrutiny be placed upon Wilson, who is currently under investigation for the shooting death of the unarmed 18-year-old man.

    This is just one avenue of many in our continuing commitment to cover a significant news story for our community.

    If you count tax deductible faith based exclusionary giving that will go toward making a televangelist rich then sure, they give.

    How many conservatives have taken the Giving Pledge?

    I kind of doubt what you are saying is true.

    What is next?

    I bet you are going to say something about Fox News. And then you will call me a bigot or racist. Isn't that the normal rhetoric????

    You make the claim, it's up to you to prove it.

    It depends on if you consider giving money to your church and religious organizations charity. That also helps inflate "volunteering" numbers among conservatives vs liberals. The Catholic Church and the LDS Church tend to be active in helping the poor, but most protestant churches and organizations tend to emphasize the individual and preach prosperity gospel and the like. More likely to judge the poor than to go out of their way to help them. Not all, of course, but more likely than the Catholics or the Mormons (or liberal atheists/heathens of all types).

    Fake charities for money laundering is a widely known phenomena.

    You'd have to say or do something racist or bigoted for that to come up. Having your facts wrong (or refusing to provide any, and instead just spouting an opinion) will be called out. Fox News probably won't be mentioned, unless it's used as a source for information in which case that will be called out as they have a well-earned reputation for being dishonest and unreliable (as all cable news networks with a particular political leaning tend to be). Our normal rhetoric here tends to be "prove it".

    If you can, and are willing to go back and forth on the facts, then people here will (for the most part) be civil with you. If they're not there's an ignore feature and Mods who would welcome you bringing bad behavior to their attention. You will probably be outnumbered (this board tends to lean liberal), but if you have the facts on your side then popular opinion shouldn't matter. People can (and regularly do) concede when they have their facts wrong here.

    Only if you count money given to hate groups is that possible, even then Some evidence would be helpful.

    You may have missed this post:

    http://community.comicbookresources....l=1#post464375

    It has a link showing that conservatives do not give more than liberals, and breaks down the different types of charities.

    Nah, that's the strawman rhetoric. This can be avoided by actually back up what you say with proof.

    Perhaps strawman fallacy and victim playing is easier to do than having actual proof.

    How about we just all agree that when someone magically pops up in this thread making a claim while refusing to post evidence to support it we just ignore that person?

    I think it is shitty when it is done to anyone, no matter which side of the law. It might be relevant in court but not in the press.

    I agree. But, if the media is going to victim shame, fuck 'em.
