Wow.  Asking people to not attack a police officer and reach for his gun and following that charge back at the officer is a ever slightly so smaller ask than kiss the pavement and grovel.

You know how we can tell you are a racist asshat?  Because you act as if you know what actually happened.  Two people know what happened, and one is dead.  You're not an eyewitness so stop acting like one.

Forensics say 100% he was partially inside the car and was shot superficially while fighting for the gun.  They also say he was fatally shot on the front and his hands were not up.  Witnesses who were not his Robbery accomplice say he was charging the officer when shot.  I can say what happened with metaphysical certitude but I can say he did quite a bit more than meekly surrender.

Unless he's armed, shooting some fat guy who is 50-75ft from you and walking at you is at the least...Questionable.

To pose an IMMEDIATE deadly threat, a person has to have the means and ability to harm you.  Unless his arms grew 45feet like stretch Adams, he wasn't presenting an immediate threat.

What he did 2 minutes ago is irrelevant, as THAT threat..Was over.

The facts say 2 things.  Officer whatever was moving backward as he fired and the fatal shot was delivered when brown was about 10 feet away.   Not sure where you get 75 feet but that's super marksman range for a revolver.


Really?  I regularly shoot 20ga shotshells at 50 METERS with a 22 revolver.  My wife can hit coke cans at 25meters with it with ease, and she's fired a gun on any type all of three times in her entire life.

People really hate the cops now.  That's just too bad.

Indeed.  There are some bad cops who have done terrible things, and too often they do escape justice.  ...but the police are also the only thing that stand between civilization and anarchy.  Take away law enforcement altogether and we'd be living in something like Somalia, where it's every man for himself.

For better or worse, the police are a necessary element of society and they are here to stay.  Simply indulging in the Two Minutes Hate isn't going to solve anything.

Police are not a necessary element to society, and create the conditions for anarchy by bleeding the poor.

For the first 80 years of the American Republic, there was no significant police presence.  Sheriffs dealt with taxes, and marshals dealt with delivering court orders.

A few cities developed watch committees to protect businesses, paid for by business associations.


Then, as slavery was going out in America, slave states starting hiring police departments to harass black people, and run them out of town by sundown.

Large business owners saw the effectiveness of using colour of authority to oppress people, and hired cops to attack workers striking or protesting for better wages and conditions.


If a supreme deity consigned all cops and their supporters and their spawn to the oblivion of some abyss, there would be a few months of disruption, but people are far better than you seem to give them credit for being.  Within two years, America would have a much better and more peaceful society, without being bled by pirates with badges.

Ideally there should be no police. That way when people commit crimes, we can just kill them and we won't have to ever worry about retribution.

Think how great that would be? The next time certain folks riot, we just go and kill all of them.

Cops really do fark up the dispensation of justice.


That is really a far reach, and killing people was not supported by my post.

My patrineal ancestor, and some of his relatives, were banished from New York in the late 1770s for being conservative.  The liberals and the progressives won that war.

So, a community telling a trouble-making conservative group to move on did work, without too much killing of fellow colonialists.

Mine moved to New Spain, and he and some of his near families did quite well away from those trouble making colonialists.  Some of his relatives stayed in New York and tolerated the revolting liberals, and did well there.

Doing well does not require violence or police.  It is the oppressive slavedrivers who wanted more, and wanted to oppress unions, poor people and black people, for fun and profit, who birthed the new police state in the US in the middle to late 1800s, that has now become a monster, filled with tiny little parasites and pirates with badges.

Where are you getting your "10 feet" from?  The DOJ report for one does not take a specific position on the relative locations of Brown and Wilson at the time the fatal shots were fired, and specifically notes that shell casings aren't indicative because they are expelled at high speed and bounce all over the place.  Once again, stop pretending you were there.

Casings generally fall fairly predictably based on pistol and shooter.

The 75' nonsense comes from window licking retards confusing the distance between Brown and the car versus Brown and Wilson.

There's a high correlation between retardation and support for Michael Brown.

Yeah, keep working that one tree, and ignoring that you're defending a forest of racist cowards. It makes you seem so credible and righteous.

Bullshiat.

1)  Forensics say he was partially in the car.  They do not say he was fighting for the gun.  And they don't answer the question of why he was partially in the car.  The only person who ever said that Brown reached in the car and tried to take the officer's gun is the officer himself (and not under oath).  Call me crazy, but it seems far more plausible that the officer reached out his window and grabbed Brown.  And given that it's police culture to automatically say "I feared for my life" "he reached for my gun" I don't put a whole lot of credence in the officer's story.

2)  As for whether Brown was "charging" Wilson when shot (which is implausible on its face -- Brown knows Wilson is armed and is so far away he had no chance of getting to Wilson without being gunned down), you are being EXTREMELY selective about the witness testimony.  Here's very useful chart showing how the different grand jury witnesses testified about different key facts.  http://www.pbs.org/newshour/updates/newly-released-witness-testimony-​t​ell-us-michael-brown-shooting/   No clear picture can be drawn from the witness testimony.  But the majority said that Brown was not "charging" Wilson, and one of key witnesses who claimed to have seen Brown "charge" was later unmasked as a publicity-seeker who was making stuff up.  http://www.thesmokinggun.com/documents/unmasking-Ferguson-witness-40-​4​96236

The bottom line is that neither you nor I really know what happened.  And when someone acts like they know I'm going to call BS.

Week?  Try day.  We're 11 days in, and so far 30 Americans, tallied by name, have been killed by law enforcement.  The most egregious (in my opinion,) was on the 9th when a 2 year cop was speeding on the left side of a one way road in the wrong direction, no lights or sirens, and killed a woman.  The local chief says it might take 7 to 10 days to complete the accident report, at which time they'll hand it off to the prosecutor to begin the process of investigation.

JerkyMeat: If you want to be a cop there is something wrong with you and you should be eliminated for consideration, based on the fact you wanted be a cop.  And cops are basically criminals hiding behind a badge....so yeah.  go f yourself, cop.

starsrift: I'm gonna stop you right in the 4th paragraph.

FTFA: Among those police officers surveyed, 86 percent told Pew that they believe the fatal incidents have made their jobs more difficult, while 93 percent say police are now more concerned about their safety as a result. Seventy-five percent said they believe that interactions between black residents and law enforcement have become more tense.

The risk is the job. That's the point. You take a risk - protect AND serve. That's where the whole problem started - cops became more concerned about their safety than doing their jobs.

Looks like it ain't changing anytime soon.


Well yea, it's scary fighting crime.  Best to hide somewhere and leave the crime fighting to the peasants.

Yeah, and the increase in cop deaths are just isolated incidents that innocent BLM protestors aren't responsible for either.  Not being sarcastic, just realistic.

So, basically, killer's remorse?

Lots of "our jobs are harder", very very little "maybe we shouldn't have done that".

the thin blue line is only effective because the population agrees with having it. like a redlight, everyone agrees to follow it. a redlight can't stop anyone from driving thru it.  Real Power is in the population, not the police and not the military. (and not the wealthy 1% either)
which is why i kinda prefer to live in a Democratic Republic.
