    Alleged ? There's video of him assaulting the store clerk.

    But he was such an angel, there's even pictures to show how delightful he was and all the neighbors said he was quiet and likable. Not to mention I got such grief from the cheap seats when I suggested he may in fact be a thug.

    There is video of him...Speculating? I think both sides are doing that, no?

    How often does it happen?
    When in the last month....four?
    Eric Garner, Staten Island, not shot but strangled to death in a chokehold.
    John Crawford in Ohio shot for carrying around a BB gun rifle he picked up off the shelf.
    Ezell Ford in LA..."investigative stop"...LA police claimed he turned around and tackled the lead police officer. Others say that they shot him while he was laying on the ground. He was shot in the back.

    That's in August.

    You were right on the money the entire time.

    No.
    Its almost expected of those who are going through the grieving process to see their loved one differently than those who are not emotionally involved.
    Let it play out until all the facts are in, let the justice system do what it must, and have compassion for the friends and families of the victim, however guilty or innocent he may be. Also pray for the cop and his friends and family, hoping that clear heads and justice will prevail.

    As I showed Tres...three in August. As for quantifiable data? Apparently it's difficult to track since federal databases track police use of force and local police data is fragmented.

    That story does not pass the smell test. If he were truly a robbery suspect, then why didn't the officer detain him the first time he stopped him, instead of telling him to get out of the middle of the road? If Brown had actually committed a robbery, then why did he talk to the officer the first time he was stopped, telling the officer that he was only a minute away from his destination, instead of running? Add to that the fact that the kid had never been in trouble with the police, has a clean record, has been described by everybody as shy and soft spoken, and was about to be a college student, then this smacks of a police department cover up. Something smells in Ferguson, Missouri, and it ain't the toilets.

    Because you pulled it outta your ass? If a black guy is shot by a cop...or by anybody he's a thug in your book.

    Eric Garner was in July. It was a chokehold. Still being investigated. The action against Crawford I understand was found to be just. I don't know about Ford but if tackled a PO, what should have happened?

    So how do these back up your claim?
