    Dunno - TBH I never heard of LEAN - my wife told me about it and she works in the school system now. Vodka and Codine I would guess the vodka amplifies the codine effect... skittles.... maybe for flavoring or sweetener - Juice I would guess is just used as a mixer maybe?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Hey I got a challenge for you.

    Find something about his character that was negative.... I mean this shouldn't be hard for a thug right?
    Of course you didn't, but then you haven't been honest here (the gang sign thing) so I wouldn't have expected you would.

    There have been some bad shoots over the years in surrounding areas.

    I also have some cop friends, and get a lot of details from them about everything, both good and bad.

    If what happened follows the version of events given by Johnson I believe the officer initially overreacted by grabbing at Brown. Brown then struggled against that overreaction and was shot. They both ran and Brown was shot a second time where he surrendered (put his hands up and went to his knees). If the officer had stopped there and just arrested Brown, it would have been an overreaction by the officer that would have been covered up by Brown's subsequent reaction. Once the officer approached a pacified Brown and fired several more shots, then it became murder.

    That's if Johnson's version of events is correct. There is thus far no statement of events from the officer.

    There are 2 aspects to this story.

    1) It appears that the police officer committed a homicide, and the police are attempting to cover it up. Every single eyewitness statement contradicts the official story from the police department. The FBI is now investigating this as a civil rights violation, and I suspect that at least one officer is going to end up in prison. People have a right to be angry here.

    2) However, that does not justify looting and burning your own neighborhood down. That is just plain idiotic, except to those who are criminals and see an opportunity to get themselves some free stuff. They should also be going to prison.

    Can you fathom what a day's work in that neighborhood must be like for a police officer? It'd be like wandering the desert in Afghanistan.

    That's no excuse to be toasting civilians.

    No dana, the eyewitnesses were drinking codeine and are thugs. This obviously means the young man had to have gone for the officers gun.
