I can't believe what I'm reading on KSL about the protests there yesterday. Where are those people coming from? Kind of upsetting.

With all of the existing threads covering what's going on in Ferguson, we needed a new thread for this?

Apparently, they don't like the outcome of out justice system. A police officer does his job and for doing his duty he now must resign. But those protesters want reform. What do they expect an officer to do? Get a court order to use his gun to defend himself! I personally find Wilson's 12 rounds fired a bit excessive for self defense. But he has the right to protect himself and those witnesses aren't credible. If Brown broke into my home should I not shoot him? If an officer of the law can't shoot, neither should I!

Shoot until the threat is no longer a threat.

Well, you live in Canada, so why are you even in the Utah section? The topic title was obvious, so if you are frustrated with these topics maybe you shouldn't open it next time.

To answer your question it's because it's upsetting to me that a few hundred people would be protesting in Utah of all places. It was in part because of Ferguson, but also because of the local shootings in the Salt Lake area. While peaceful, it was disturbing. I thought the Salt Lake area would be pretty problem free if a disaster happened, but perhaps the Salt Lake area will have more problems than I thought.

I'm not a she. I'm just pointing out that why does someone go into an area that doesn't even apply to them and complain about a topic? To me it's not even about what happened in Ferguson, so much as why are there a few hundred white people protesting without a permit blocking roads it in Salt Lake? Where are these people coming from?

Apparently you aren't familiar with the founders of the Morman "faith" and all of the atrocities they committed against "non-believers". Some of the most heinous acts in this country happened in Utah and surrounding territories.

Well, I appreciate your attempt to interject your personal disdain for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, which has nothing to do with the topic at hand. I'm familiar with what you are hinting at and am not responding to it.

Maybe it is a good idea to just delete this topic since it's obvious some people are just going to troll it. I was interested in discussing the local protests that happened yesterday in Salt Lake, especially the people that made them up, but that apparently isn't going to happen.

Why are liberals posting in a thread that doesn't apply to them? Then, of all things, p***ing and moaning about religion that they only have their own biased opinions to go on?

BTW, the OP was asking why Ferguson had become a local (Utah) topic, and where the **** these people were from.

Give us a break from the senseless disputes and arguments.

The OP was voicing an opinion and being surprised that protests were taking place in Salt Lake City and felt that if it got violent that this area was the last area he would have expected it. I merely pointed out that Utah has been home to plenty of acts of violence in it's past. I never stated an opinion one way or the other as to how I felt about the Mormons or any other religion. Get over yourselves FFS.

And who in the hell are you calling liberals?

I wasn't saying it would get violent. I was surprised to see a protest in Salt Lake and was saying if there is ever a disaster these are going to be the people to worry about.

Yes, Salt Lake is synonymous with Compton when it comes to violence. I actually had to get on the ground once while typing this because of a possible drive-by.

Reading comprehension is your friend. I said that you would be surprised if it got violent. You are correct that this thread should be deleted because you obviously lack the skills or mentality to interact with ANYONE that posts on it.

That's what I was responding to. Yeah, I was having some fun with you about Compton, but I have no problem with you. We don't agree on things, but I have no problem with you.

I just wanted to make sure that it was understood that I didn't think it would get violent now, but was more concerned about the future. It didn't seem like the people protesting believed in the cause so much as were looking to cause trouble. I just moved to the area, so I took interest in it.

If you were to stay out of certain threads when your own comprehension is lacking and your "facts" are skewed through your own bias (what atrocities in outlying territories, and what "founders of the faith" supported them?), maybe things would go a little better for you. When you take your cues from the leftist playbook and troll for an argument, of course somebody's gonna think you're a liberal.

Maybe you should drop the subject and head over to the Colorado forum to work things out. No sense coming here to throw cheap shots at people.

I guess you have never bothered to read about what was done to the Mormon faith and ORDERED by the Government of the State Of Missouri. If you want to talk about heinous acts, you must include this one. Far worse IMO as this was state sanctioned MURDER of American Citizens.
http://www.quaqua.org/extermination.htm

So if you are going to bring up the above, it would only be fair to post this as well. Yes the Mountain Meadows incident was deplorable, but what Missouri did in 1838 was State Sanctioned Murder of American Citizens for no other reason than the religion the chose to follow.

Brand new here - just have to jump in. Maxx442: you're absolutely correct - the Mountain Meadows Massacre was horrific. I spent a whole summer studying it, and have made it part of my anthropology courses. However, your connection with the SLC/Ferguson riots is something of a non-sequitur. By that standard of discrimination, every state has been the home of horrific violence. Let's face it: where people have been, there has been horrific violence.
To connect Mountain Meadows to the Ferguson protests you need more analysis: an ongoing feeling of persecution, a sense of a lack of support from proper authority, a misunderstanding of the nature of the victims, and so on (all of these, by the way, ARE part of Mountain Meadows AND the Ferguson debacles).
As it was, your comment just seemed like a cheap swipe at Mormonism. You may not have intended it to come out that way, but, once you've said it, you can't bring it back. Knowing that a huge portion of the readership here is probably Mormon, why light the proverbial match in a powder keg?
