    Bull****. They weren't even allowed time to investigate the event. And "transparent manner"? Ridiculous, details of an investigation remain closed until the investigation is done. The FBI isn't going to be any more of what you seem to consider transparent.

    Read my post again and tell me what part of "self defense" depends on "dissing". Again, as I stated if a cop hits you, you have every right to hit them back. It's called self defense. Think I'm wrong?

    “Citizens may resist unlawful arrest to the point of taking an arresting officer's life if necessary.” Plummer v. State, 136 Ind. 306. This premise was upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States in the case: John Bad Elk v. U.S., 177 U.S. 529. The Court stated: “Where the officer is killed in the course of the disorder which naturally accompanies an attempted arrest that is resisted, the law looks with very different eyes upon the transaction, when the officer had the right to make the arrest, from what it does if the officer had no right. What may be murder in the first case might be nothing more than manslaughter in the other, or the facts might show that no offense had been committed.”

    The looting has to die down once most of the best stuff is already stolen.

    How does looting and rioting have anything to do with protesting the actions of the police department?

    But of course, this is entirely off topic, isn't it Risky? Or did I stumble into the wrong thread. I thought we were discussing the protests in Missouri.
    We were discussing were discussing the fact that un-normal and un-decent people come in all colors, educations, genders and careers.










    Somedays I stop and ask myself if it is going to be worth the effort of chewing through the restraints.

    Ridiculous details? Like...

    1. The police didn't talk to witnesses
    2. The name of the officer in question wasn't released
    3. They only looked into the matter when a big fuss was made

    Right. Ridiculous details. All of which would have been standard procedure if someone had killed a cop.

    Based upon your bad reading of the decision and does not substantiate your claim that resisting arrest or detention equates to self defense.

    And the reason is still unknown so there is no justification for shooting.

    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.
    And the witnesses are saying the cop attacked Michael Brown. If as a result the cop was hit back, and he shot to defend himself - it's not justified. You don't get to attack someone, the kill them if you're losing the fight.
