If the administration let Ofc. Brown do his job instead of breaking his balls this would not happen. 50 young black males can get shot and the NAACP won't say a word. The minute a cop pulls a young black male over they look for anything and everything to accuse the cop of wrongdoing. Sad state of affairs in America.
