    Well, to be fair, it was a black guy wearing the same kind of clothes Mike Brown was wearing when he got shot and, generally, the same size as Mike Brown.

    I don't, and have expressed just that. Again, playing stupid makes you look bad and serves no purpose.I have called for proper and thorough investigation. This guy being a suspect in and of itself gives no credence or justification to shooting him in this instance, it's immaterial.

    Did he and or his accomplice fight with the cop? Did the officer receive the bulletin that described Brown before he saw them?

    But as far as I know, the perps had no guns.
    You're right, we don't know...but assuming they did not comply which means they resisted. Did Bundy resist? If the Federal Officials shot him would they be right?

    And then you made the unequivocal assertion that he was arbitrarily executed.

    Make up your mind already.

    Mike Brown has lost his halo that was holding up his gentle giant image, with his own hands.

    I agree with the statement, but not that it applies to this this event. There was nothing arbitrary here.

    Why would it?
    This type of information was known from the start. It just wasn't as specific.



    This from four days ago.
    The slain teenager and a friend were “accused of stealing gum from the store or some sort of cigarettes,” the alderman said.

    Absolutely false. There are quite a lot of people who interact with the police regularly and have never been shot, nor are they likely to be, at least by the police. Myself included.
