So no one wants to riot over the black protester who was shot by police the other night? Hmm typical.
I can see 2 possibilities...
1) The cop casually told Brown to move aside. Brown copped attitude... no pun intended. The store video of the robbery clearly shows, IMHO, a bully, but the officer had no knowledge of the incident. A "smart" person, having ripped off a store, would have STFU and just moved aside.
2) The cop acted like a 7th grade hall monitor, was impolite, and focused on "asserting his authority." He was the one in charge, and he was going to show it.
I think, to a degree, BOTH sides have an agenda. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle. That's my $0.02.
With the autopsy results... there's no way of knowing if Brown's hands were raised in surrender? Or perhaps aggression? Either is possible. I'd be curious to know the relative physical size of the police officer involved. We can speculate ad nauseum, but there are a whole boatload of details the public does not know yet.
Regardless, the looting is deplorable. The business owner strong-armed by Brown were first robbed, then looted on two subsequent occasions. That store owner was *not* even the one to involve police, IIRC. That man was violated THREE times. That's sad. He & his family are, IMHO, victims of this as well.
They have already released pictures of Wilson. You think if he had a caved in orbital they would be trumping a picture of it all over the news. I mean they stooped to releasing unrelated surveillance of the robbery so why wouldnt they show the cops battered face? Just curious.

Are their companies that do private, for profit autopsies?
