    It's not uncommon with this force.

    This innocent man was mistakenly arrested, but having already been beaten up by them, was charged with bleeding on their uniforms...

    That's not the way it works. Cope are held accountable for bad shoots all the time. Maybe it doesn't happen every time but they are held to roughly the same standards as anyone else.

    Nonsense. Brown, again according to his accomplice, was shot twice before he surrendered. Shooting him after he had surrendered would be a criminal overreaction to the situation, but again, nothing at all arbitrary about it.

    So much for that indignant self righteous rush to judgment.

    In the Bundy case, it was about the fed's not having the balls to attack such a large group.

    This kid Brown looks as if he beat the cop up enough to be hospitalized. No such damage was caused by Bundy's group.

    Until more facts come out, the only thing the video shows is someone (not verified it was Brown) stealing and possibly assault. That in and of itself is not enough to justify a cop shooting Brown eight times.

    However if (big if) that was Brown and it's verified - and if more facts come out in favor of the cop, it may have been a justifiable shooting. We just don't know yet. What that big if will also do if verified, will show that the innocent black man story was contrived and propagandized to make a racial issue out of the incident. How about we just wait and see if the cop was dirty and deserves murder charges or if Brown was shot justifiably.

    People at the Bundy Ranch trained guns on Federal Officers.

    We're talking about the escalation of force here...when is it warranted and when is it not.

    Michael Brown (according to reports) was told to comply and refused

    Bundy was told to comply and refused.
    Alleged...speculated...unconfirmed reports...

    The haters are really doing everything they can do to make this innocent person seem guilty.

    I imagine if we give the police department long enough, Brown will have also murdered and raped someone prior to this shooting taking place. Given enough time and they might even claim Brown was part of ISIS.

    Not quite, as police have shot up many an innocent. So it's not 100% restricted to my own behavior.
