    You don't need to ponder the possibilities. You simply have to look at urban Detroit to get some idea of how a civilization deteriorates when the police are incapable of policing a community and the community takes over that function.

    If that was a priority for someone, or several, they would make it a priority.

    It's possible for just about anyone, is it not?

    Interestingly, the police chief there just said that in the *initial* contact of cop and Brown, the cop didnt know about the armed robbery. However it is possible that he received word during the confrontation that there was an armed robbery nearby, description of suspects, etc. And he may have believed he had a weapon and was a danger to the public.

    It's just speculation. But we *do not know* at this point and we cant yet say.
    Yes, I know about the risk to public safety. That would be quite a stretch I think seeing as he was unarmed and put his hands up and was still shot.

    Yes but the police chief clearly stated several times that that is not why the cops made initial contact.

    (However we dont yet know if the cops received any info during their contact with Brown.)

In my view, these are the people who should be getting the publicity and community support and not the lawless animals who simply want an excuse to cause havoc.
    From what we've seen and heard today in the news conference, there's a good chance that they would be asked questions about Brown's character that they may not want to answer.

    I dont think any of that has been confirmed yet. Except he was found to be unarmed after the fact.

    Next time ask me what my stance is. It will keep you from being so wrong.
    when a white cops kills a black suspect in the middle of a black community, you will have to excuse me if I don't put all my trust in "the eyewitness accounts" like you appear to be doing.

    the way I see it the man is proven(on video) to be a dangerous person to the law abiding community, therefor he doesn't get MY benefit of the doubt as he so easily gets yours. To me he is already the suspicious one from the word GO, and will continue to think that unless new facts prove otherwise.

    This is where it all seems so odd to me....there are reports of a struggle in the police car, but also of Brown being shot on the street fleeing.

    ?????

    The whole damn thing is odd. Nobody has any clue what really happened from what I can see, which is why rush to judgments against either the cop or the dead man are both wrong.

    Again, I'm a liberal.
