Pull the Plug on Grannie: iremo: All of the these things are of course possible! Whether they fall within the purview of reasonable doubt should be decided by a jury. At a trial. After they indict the guy for second-degree murder.What's wrong with letting the grand jury to their job? If there is clear evidence of Wilson's facial injury + corroboration from witnesses that be was bum-rushed, why would you drag Wilson through a trial? What if he really was in fear for his life and feels like a pile of shiat about it? What does a trial accomplish if there's a 99.99% chance he will be found innocent?
parasol: Callous: jst3p: Callous: dr_blasto: I'll buy the broken face story when the hospital confirms the ER admission and releases what they certify as the cop's CT or Xray scans. Too much bullshiat to buy anything about it now, they have zero cred.So the only proof that you'll accept requires a criminal act on the hospital's part to provide it to you?Are you that ignorant or are you just trying so hard to hang on to your narrative that you are willing to demand the impossible so as not to have to reconsider it?The way I see it, if there was extensive damage to the cops face they would have released pictures as soon as possible because it would provide support that the shooting was justified. They probably would have released them at the same time as the still images of Michael tossing the store clerk around for maximum effect.I realize I could be wrong but until I see anyevidence of Brown assaulting the cop I am going to believe he didn't.But blasto is demanding that the release comes certified from the hospital. Last I knew it's illegal for doctors or hospitals to release medical records. without patient's permission
rinasaunce: Geoff Peterson: The fact that you think it is important shows you to be easily distracted and lacking reasoning ability./It's an irrelevant strawman.You are a very silly man. The fact that a person, any person, who was involved in an altercation with a police officer was just leaving the scene of a strong arm robbery is absolutely relevant. It goes to the immediate actions of M. Brown prior to the incident and it reflects his state of mind.It is clearly not determinative, but only an imbecile would say it is an irrelevant strawman./critical thinking//how does it work?
Land_of_the_Magic_Dragon: parasol: Land_of_the_Magic_Dragon: Grungehamster: Land_of_the_Magic_Dragon: they were demanding a lynching.Umm, I must have missed that. Here was the list of demands when this first started, distributed by flyer at the protests:- The officer involved in the shooting death of Michael Brown be IMMEDIATELY identified.- The same officer should be immediately fired and charged with murder.- The Ferguson Police Department "Protocol Handbook" be distributed throughout the Ferguson community.- The racial composition of the Ferguson Police Department should reflect the racial demographics of the community.Now I think murder would be a difficult thing to try to convict him with (manslaughter is much more reasonable if you do believe that he did do wrong in this case) and the union ain't going to let any cop be fired until actually convicted. I also think that asking the racial composition of the force to match the community is an exercise in futility: if you have evidence of bias in hiring or promoting practices then go after that but trying to make it "equal" isn't going to do anyone much good. However none of those things were demanding his death without trial.Someone got shot in broad daylight unarmed from several yards away while unarmed with multiple witnesses saying at the scene that he wasn't posing a threat to the officer when it happened. The police department response was "we will not release the name of the officer involved; he will face an internal review if he acted properly and will file charges if we find he acted criminally" with no promises to even let anyone know anything if the internal review cleared the officer. Do you see why the Weeners was protests, and how the crackdown on the protests that didn't attempt to discriminate between the protesters and the rioters just got people more angry?If you feel those are reasonable demands it's a waste of time trying to reason with you.You haven't negotiated much, have you?Considering that every de ...
