    Good people need some place to wipe their feet, so it's nice to know there are those who could be promoted to the position.

    It's not the country; it's the individual.

    I guess resisting arrest and trying to fight a police officer and steal his firearm is conveniently not included in your assessment of the situation. I mean, it has already been shown that the side you are taking has major credibility issues. Little evidence exists that this officer has credibility issues. Unless you are privy to evidence that this is a problem officer that none of the rest of us are that is.

    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    If the cop was going to shoot him for stealing a cigar there probably wouldn't have been any confrontation. A simple shot to the back of the head while driving by would have sufficed.

    I'm trying to keep my replies reasonable but the level of ridiculous in this discussion is making that difficult. My Sarcast-o-Meter redlined an hour ago.

    OK....one more time....

    From all appearances it seems that Brown and his buddy stole some stuff from a convenience store. They were then confronted by a cop, some kind of altercation occurred and Brown ended up dead. That much shouldn't be in dispute but by now, who the hell knows.

    The question at hand is how the altercation started. Maybe the cop mouthed off at Brown. Maybe Brown mouthed off at the cop. Maybe the cop pushed Brown with the door of his car. Maybe Brown pushed the car door back into the cop. Maybe Brown punched the cop in the face. Maybe the cop bashed his face getting out of the car. Maybe the cop flipped out and shot Brown for ****s and grins. Maybe Brown rushed the cop and got shot in self defense.

    That's a whole lot of maybe's and we don't have much to go on other than "witness" accounts by interested parties from both sides. The sane thing to do under such circumstances would be to chill out and wait until we get some more facts but, apparently, that isn't going to happen because a whole lot of folks have decided to fill in the blanks for themselves and turn a deaf ear to any and all other opinions.

    The only real witness to the whole of the events was his accomplice in a strong arm robbery. You reveal yourself in believing the accomplice over all.

    My bad, you are right. Posts about someone's children make me twitchy like that. I shouldn't lump the country in with that kind of a trolling post.

    Only if you believe in Karma.

    BTW, your feigned, hypocritical shock is duly noted.

    Silly response and you know it. It's turning out that, without lying to yourself, this event won't be the anti-police totem you so desire.

    Johnson's lawyer has admitted it.
