    He has none. The crap he spew sounds contrived.

    No shooting someone dead for stealing swisher sweets still seems way out of proportion and wouldn't have happened to a white teen.

    Please provide evidence that that is the reason he was shot.
    And while you are at it try to incorporate the information that he attacked the Officer.

    How so?
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Second, the results are from a simple google search ("cop arrested for shooting")

    I'd suggest that this is ample evidence that cops are absolutely held accountable for their actions. Just like with the civilian population, the results aren't always what we want to see but that doesn't mean that there is no accountability.

    Frankly, I'm burnt out on these silly games. I'm sick and tired of people screaming "INJUSTICE" every time their sensibilities are hurt. I don't have any more facts than anyone else here does about the Mike Brown shooting but I'll be damned if I'll condemn either him or the cop until I have those facts.
    Well first off, I did say that all the police shootings aren't unjustified. So no real point. I did also say that it was not an exhaustive search, so again no point. Furthermore, I have stated more than once that was is needed is a legitimate and thorough investigation to determine if there was any wrong doing. The point is that cops often get away with things and you don't have ample evidence; you have at best 1%. At best.

    I think the video serves the purpose of deflating this, "nice young man, high school graduate, planning on going to college, Suzy Cream Cheese," image these media has been trying to portray this person as. Turns out he was a punk thug after all.

    It also is solid evidence that this young man has no problem strong arming someone thus pulling the rug out of the "he wasn't armed," excuse. This guy obviously did not need any weapons to do his crimes.

    One crime may not have anything to do with the other but the video is a strong tool to establish the character of the deceased.

    This will be interesting to watch play out.

    Sure it does and Brown was 6'4' and over 300 pounds.

    The baby shot by the SWAT team? The folk in CA (was it?) who were shot in a van when cops were looking for that cop killer? That shooting in NYC where the cops missed the criminal and only hit bystanders?

    Just a couple off the top of the head

    100% is a statement of absolute, and I have thus demonstrated that there is no absolute.
