Panel set to study Ferguson fallout

The lamestream media told you:

" 'They are tough, they are smart and they are empowered,' governor Nixon said of the 16-member panel, charged with making recommendations on how to deal with issues raised by the shooting death of Michael Brown and the protests that followed... the commission will tackle several issues including the relationship between police and citizens, racial equities and disparities, the structure of municipal governments, public education and access to health care...."  --USA Today, 11/19/14

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

<snip> "...the commission will tackle several issues including the relationship between police and citizens, racial equities and disparities, the structure of municipal governments, public education and access to health care...". Public education? Access to health care? In other words, social-welfare agendas and community activism will take center stage, real issues will be ignored and the whole thing will be a standard whitewash. Federal subsidies were unknown at press time.

The real hard-core issue of what police should do when repeatedly smashed in the face by robbery suspects attempting to steal their guns is not even on the drawing board.

Why a member of "the community" would do such a thing, and why "the community" would not rebuke such action has apparently not occurred to "community" members, the 16-member commission, the governor making the assignment, orUSA Today in neatly reprinting the press release on the story. Perhaps the community-organizer-in-chief would know, though his officious statement didn't address the issue either.
