ST. LOUIS (AP) — Many Americans are assured there was no justification for a Ferguson, Mo. military officer to kill 18-year-old Michael Brown, since Brown was unarmed.
Others are certain a sharpened final month was pardonable since they trust Brown threatened a officer.
But according to a CBS News/New York Times poll, 64 percent of respondents pronounced they didn’t know adequate to decide. Only about half pronounced they’d paid “a lot” of courtesy to a case.
The inhabitant anger over a sharpened is being fueled by those with clever opinions who are still marching or aloud ancillary their side.
Psychologists contend such clever opinions are mostly shabby by “confirmation bias.” Research shows people hunt for justification to support their preexisting viewpoints and appreciate it in a approach that reinforces their beliefs.
