    Lmao - self defense is assault? Well, that's definitely a new one.

    We don't know whether the shooting was justifiable or not, as there has been no investigation. What is certain is that going out and looting businesses that had nothing to do with the shooting is not justified.

    The melodrama level in these threads is getting stifling but I'll play.

    If the cop has a swollen face that might be an indication that he was attacked. It doesn't explain why he was attacked or even that Brown caused the injury but it should be part of the investigation. It's also my understanding that there were two kids involved when this whole thing went down so if the cop was being attacked and he's not the one that started the incident then yes, shooting may well have been warranted.

    May I point out to the fact that the two people are not even the same color? Wait... conservative... tree house? Lol. Nvm. You're just trolling.
    Can't honestly say I'm good at judging faces from photos no matter what color the subject is, but I do notice you chose the most innocent pictures of Brown you could find. And he is no small fellow. Imagine if you're a police officer and you have that fellow going for your gun.

    I'm not saying that's absolutely what happened, but the posters saying, "wait for the results of the investigation" are absolutely right on.

    BTW, I know you won't concede that you were wrong, but I noticed you ignored my previous post to you.
    I'm not ignoring anything. You don't know anymore than I do about this.

    There is absolutely no mention of any self defense situation on the parts of the two youths by either the police or the surviving youth.

    Well, in all fairness the looting seems to have died down. However, we continue to see a complete focus on the 2-3 days of violence as opposed to the fact that the riots only began because the entire police department of St. Louis refuses to investigate their own in a transparent manner.

    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.
    No, the police were called because these two st I Le from the QT. See you don't even have that right.
