    How many cops end up in jail for voluntary manslaughter or greater? "Held accountable"? Not really. Some are when there is enough video evidence to show, but that explains police officers reluctance to incorporate video into their daily routine.

    They will claim anything they can to maintain their power and immunity from law.

    Yes those details also came out today that the police officer sustained injuries bad enough to require medical attention.

    Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson says the officer who shot and killed unarmed black teenager Michael Brown last Saturday is Darren Wilson, a six-year veteran of the force who has no disciplinary actions on his record with the department.

    The release of Wilson's name comes after Jackson said he wouldn't identify the man out of concerns for his safety, citing death threats made to Ferguson police and on social media. Jackson said that Wilson was treated for injuries he sustained Saturday.
    Sure looking a whole lot different than it did a few days ago. Brown caught on tape getting physical with the store manager, Brown gets physical with the police officer who sustained injuries and Brown ends up dead.

    So you got, what 5 there? I didn't look to see if they are all different. How many people are killed by police every year? I found about 500/year (which if true isn't all that high). so assuming your links are all from the same year, 1%? I didn't perform an exhaustive search, maybe you can turn up different numbers. So at most 1% are held accountable. Now all of those 500 aren't unjustified; but how many are investigated? How often are abuses uncovered and punished? And that's just in killing...how many other nonfatal abuses are going on?

    So you're saying that Fed's not escalating on Bundy makes their threat of force ok?

    Bundy's threat of force came after the government's actions. IMO,he was protecting himself and family.
