    Fill us in.
    A lynching is an extra-legal trial. It is a violent punishment or execution, without due process, for real or alleged crimes.

    Wiki, it is defined as: "any act of violence inflicted by a mob upon the body of another person which results in the death of the person," with a "mob" being defined as "the assemblage of two or more persons, without color or authority of law, for the premeditated purpose and with the premeditated intent of committing an act of violence upon the person of another".

    Sigh. Keep up.

    He will be charged with murder if there is sufficient evidence, not because someone wants to push and demagogue a particular narrative for a political agenda. Which is disgusting by the way.

    We have yet to hear Wilson's version of events. His report on the incident has still not been released contrary to Missouri state law... why do you suppose that is?
    Wow.

    No, it's quite clear because you have already concluded his guilt. Stop making such ridiculous representations of my arguments. Your comments display your wanton disregard for and lack of knowledge of the legal system. And the report was released last friday...

    The main point of this all is that you cannot make a definitive conclusion on what happened at this moment in time, which is something you are doing right now. We need to wait for ballistics, toxicology, etc.

    Yes.
    By taking the element of racial bias out of the situation you do not make the actual case look any less racially motivated. You only make it look worse.
    By comparing widely disparate scenarios you only make yourself look worse. Holmes wasn't facing a lone police officer suffering from an orbital blowout fracture he had just inflicted on that officer in an assault.

    I have seen a pattern. Describing someone as an unarmed teen as if those facts do not make them a threat to someones life. It is a way to appeal to emotion rather than reality.

    and ignores the fact that he had inflicted an orbital blowout fracture on the armed officer. So, among other things, you have an "unarmed teen" willing to assault armed police officer. I think it safe to assume that Brown was not acting rationally to say the least and that the officer had reason to assume Brown intended to do him grievous bodily harm.

    If the officer feared he might incriminate himself (and such a fear would be very reasonable), he has a constitutional right not to make a statement.

    Of course if he already has, then the PD should release it according to the norms of law.
