    Murdering an unarmed man for running towards you seems excessive. Maybe a reach for the taser would have been better.

    Well, if Sooper Mexican can report a story from Conservative Treehouse about a conversation barely audible on a Youtube video…I mean, it must be true.

    Clearly we should just halt the investigation and everyone should go home.

    Of course it would be funnier if the police weren’t shooting people with rubber bullets.

    I bet this pastor wished she got hit with an earplug:

    Does fit the autopsy report, though. All shots hit from front, none in the back as some witnesses reported.

    If there was a struggle for the cops gun ( from injuries we know there was a struggle, at least ) and given the entire encounter lasted less than a minute the cop might not have been able to switch to a taser, if he even had one ( presume he did, but I don’t know that ).

    All the shots hitting head and arms certainly fits the narrative of firing on him as he stood with his hands raised as well. None of the reports said he definitely was shot in the back, btw, they said he was running away while the officer fired and fell…which they thought meant he was hit…he then turned and raised his arms and the officer fired many more times.

    And no, the narrative still doesn’t make sense that the officer is telling. He charged him in his car to fight for his weapon…then suddenly there was enough space between then that Brown had to charge to close the distance and he had to shoot him 6 times to stop him?

    No, see the funny part is reporters don’t know enough about what they’re reporting on.

    Yes the police are using rubber bullets. CS gas as well. This is what happens when violent elements latch on to peaceful protests; the protests become riots.

    Unless you think the police should just pull out and leave people to themselves. Which happened.

    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2014/08/16/there-are-no-police-ferguson-store-owners-guard-businesses-with-own-guns-lack/

    Looters in Ferguson, Mo., were met with little police resistance Friday night and store owners say they were forced to protect their businesses with their own guns, Fox2Now.com reported.

    “I think the first message is to remind all law enforcement that they are hired to serve and protect and if they’re going to sit back and watch looting, they’re not serving us; they’re not protecting us,” Pastor Robert White told the station.

    A reporter from the station tweeted that police cars were seen driving past some of the stores being looted and did not respond. It rained in Ferguson Friday night and protesters could be seen outside until 6 a.m.

    Two store owners, standing outside their business holding guns, told Fox2Now.com that when they called 911, they were sent from one police agency to another, and got no response.

    One of the owners, with a large black gun resting on his shoulder, told the station that police were lined up blocks from the looting, and did not engage looters making off with large boxes from these stores.

    “There’s no police,” he said. “We trusted the police to keep it peaceful; they didn’t do their job.”

    Not disagreeing, presuming he had a taser. We don’t know, since all of the facts aren’t out. Just a bunch of opportunists trying to set the agenda from both perspectives.

    Well, if Sooper Mexican can report a story from Conservative Treehouse about a conversation barely audible on a Youtube video…I mean, it must be true.

    Nice argument of a point no one was making. Lash out, since you’ve already solved the case.

    None of the reports said he definitely was shot in the back

    multiple witnesses, including the guy who was with the victim, said he was shot in the back.

    Dorian Johnson said Brown was shot in the back ( “felt the shot” at about the 2:07 mark ).

    Per the autopsy report, 4 of the shots where in Brown’s arm. Extremity shots aren’t likely to stop.

    They all said he started firing as he was running away, they thought he may have been hit, at which point he turned around and faced Wilson with his hands raised. “Felt the shot” doesn’t mean he was shot, btw.

    “The officer gets out of his vehicle,” Mitchell said, “and he pursues him,” continuing to shoot at Brown. “Michael’s body jerks as if he was hit,” Mitchell explained, “and then he put his hands up,” and the officer continued to shoot at Brown until the teenager collapsed “all the way down to the ground.”

    -Tiffany Mitchell

    Crenshaw says the same thing.

    Uh huh. Well, we’re going to have to agree to disagree.

    In your isolated world, maybe not.
