    I wouldn't say so. I would say that under most normal situations you would be very unlikely to do so. But as a statement of absolute? I don't know, perhaps there could be scenarios in which it could happen.

    According to the radio interview by someone associated with the cop he got the call about the robbery at roughly the same as he was telling Brown and his companion to get out of the middle of the street.

    but instead, we have video showing what a piece of human garbage this guy was, and what a DANGER he was to the average citizen(anyone who gets physical with an old man is the worst kind of coward), now you want to argue it doesn't make any difference.

    you people take the cake, honestly
    No, people like you who value cigars over human life take the cake.

    I guess we could do another lap around the may-pole on this. If those people weren't anywhere near the police, they wouldn't have been shot by them, so it's 100% their fault.

    Ok. I get your point.

    No, but assaulting a police officer and trying to take his gun can get you killed.

    Since Brown is confirmed to be a thief, it looks like karma caught with his ass.

    'Somebody associated with the cop'? No thanks, I'm not buying that one. It's an attempt to justify an unjustifiable act. Cops are famous for lying like hell to protect their own.

    No. Hasn't your point been to try and reject things that do relate to the topic at hand?

    I can make the statement as an absolute, Ikari. The ONLY reason I would shoot someone is if my life or my kids' lives were in danger. I could never shoot anyone just to shoot the person. Yes, I say that with absolute conviction, more than I could state I would never cheat on my husband, never lie to my boss, never steal, and never run naked through Central Park.

    Try to restrain your joy at the notion of one of your 'brothers' () being killed.
