    A well placed gesture by an expert witness can say a thousand words, in no uncertain terms.

    I already knew what the dictionary definition was, I wanted to hear that dude's definition.

    I suspect that he's not going to give it to us.

    The dude weighed 300 pounds and was under the influence of drugs. The last two rounds killed him, so obviously 6 rounds was the magic number.

    How do you shoot someone six times in a "struggle for a gun" when they are twenty feet away?
    We still have no official report on the shooting ...from anyone on the police side.
    How about that. No official report yet. All we have is heresay and factoids released by interested parties without any sort of validation, verification or how the facts all fit together. Don't you think that the right thing to do is wait until the actual facts come out and we get the big picture and a full understanding of what happened, we refrain from being part and parcel to an ole' time lynching there Buck? Or are you happy living with the same thought process that justified lynching black men based on heresay?

    This is nonsense. Once Wilson began to use his weapon to stop the alleged attacker the very intent was to incapacitate Brown and the risk of death was very great. That happens often when you empty half a clip of bullets into someone. There was no time to decide in the few seconds over which this happened whether or not the kill shot was indeed necessary to completely stop an assailant.

    I would argue the officer did not even know the last shot would be fatal, or that it would enter the skull. I imagine if the attacker was beginning to fall forward, continued shots at center mass explains the fatal wound.

    The question is not should he or should he not have shot one less bullet.

    The question is was he justified in using lethal force against a perceived threat.

    As I said earlier, I will not make that judgement for myself until all the facts are out.

    Holmes was armed to the teeth with several weapons and he was taken into custody without so much as a scratch.

    how easy is it to hit a moving target using only one of your eyes and in a great deal of pain?
