    Why wouldn't he bw credible? From what I know he handed the investigation over to the county sherriff, and is cooperating with the Feds.

    Maybe I am missing something?

    The whole thing stinks to high heaven. I hope justice prevails, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Did he ever get around to interviewing Mr. Brown's friend who was an eyewitness?


    BTW, I know you won't concede that you were wrong, but I noticed you ignored my previous post to you.

    Really?- there is no possible way that the police officer could have gotten out of the police car, apprehended the man (walking down the middle of the street is an offense), and then the man started to resist once the police officer attempted to actually place him in the police car?

    On the contrary, the totality suggests that there was a perfect storm of circumstances:

    - "D-ck size contest" ensues
    -Officer is out numbered 2-1
    -Man physically resists (Officer was probably not used to grappling- and espescially not with a larger opponent)
    -Man breaks free and saunters off (now officer is losing the "d-ck contest")
    -Officer loses track of the third person- is he also going to attack?
    -Officer panics and shoots.

    What the officer should have done is simply let the man go, called for back up, figured out who he was (he was well known in the area), then arrest him later for reisting arrest and causing a traffic obstruction.

    I think that maybe we shouldn't release details in general, or limit the details that are released, for suspects in crimes before they are convicted in a court of law; civilian or police.

    There are now 3 eyewitnesses who have not been interviewed.

    Then the cops can't strut and crow.

    Presumption of innocence.

    When a police officer is shot and killed, how many hours do they usually leave him dead in the street?

    Something akin to YOU ignoring the links you requested in the Robin Williams/Suicide thread and YOU ignored rather than conceding YOU are wrong? You mean like that?
