Now that the facts are out, and the gentle giant was just a thug, have you changed your tune on Ferguson.

@rickjames: As I noted in the post, I wasn't trying to make a statement about what happened in Ferguson, but rather to point to something I see as possibly being a general problem about police force hiring.

But responding directly to your question about Ferguson, the fact that the kid was a thug should not have meant he would receive a death sentence, determined by a police officer on the street.

I don't know if hiring high IQ police officers would help. High IQ brings more evil out of intelligent people. My guess is that IQ is a bad indicator of a person's goodness or otherwise.
