Can the Ferguson police say they've allowed the same freedom? Nope.
    It's also pretty obvious that these terrorist organizations like ISIS want media publicity for what they are doing. It doesn't hinder what they are trying to do. The media in Ferguson are getting in the law enforcement's way.

    The video in the opening post continues with a press conference on the autopsy findings. Among the attendees is Dr. Michael Baden, who has the experience and expertise to know that the autopsy supports the Police Officer's version of events. There are more wounds than are accounted for by the reported six rounds fired. That means there are multiple wounds each for at least two rounds. If you bend the arm at the elbow and raise it to the chest you can clearly see that the wounds in the forearm and hand match the wounds to the upper bicep, shoulder and right side of the chest. That clearly indicates a running or charging position. It is impossible for those wounds to have been inflicted with the arms raised in the air, and Michael Baden knows this.

    This whole thing is an F'ing sham and disgrace.

    As you see in the video, the police concern is that they were being shot at and the spotlight would draw fire.
    We're talking broad side of a barn here. Large groups of people in uniforms standing in a crowd. Even a miss would have someone if not the intended target.

    One person was shot, it just happened to be another protester. But that is what happens when you are shooting in the dark.

    Wow, it gets even better. Watch an officer actually threaten to kill a journalist.

    I can think of at least twice I thought about threatening reporters. I am trying to figure out what is bad about this. They are kinda like puppies, always in the worst possible place at the time. Puppies have an excuse.

    Look at the video! It's not dark, there are lights everywhere! If somebody was shot and it wasn't a cop it was likely a cop who pulled the trigger or a shooting thatintended to be masked by the rioting. Pistols are simply not that inaccurate. A 3 inch group at 20 feet becomes a 15 inch group at 100 feet. It's like antigun people are willfully ignorance of how firearms and bullets behave in real life. If you can point your finger at an object you can hit it with a bullet.

    Video cameras are more sensitive than the human eye. If you have a hard time making them out on camera then it is pitch black to the naked eye.

    I've been in cities at night. It's not dark. You keep making excuses. Why? In those crowds there is virtually no horizontal line of sight that does not end on a person.

    See? How hard was that? That officer was way out of line and was suspended immediately.
