    You're probably right, but I think we'll be seeing a lot of videos reminding people of what happened - brought to the public's attention again by those who have the money and the clout to fight back. It won't be all one-sided this time, and it might make a difference. I can already hear the cursing....

    I think this is by far the most likely scenario based on all the witness reports so far. The polarized narratives of "Execution style muder" and "Drooling charging madman" seem both unlikely to me, and it is disturbing to me that most people seem to take a presupposition and support it with whatever narrative they can concoct.

    The real salient questions are:

    1. Was officer Wilson attacked through the car window. The medical reports for him will help here.
    2. Was Brown acting aggressively after turning towards the officer. This is going to be harder to establish one way or the other, I think.

    Officer Wilson used deadly force.

    The question that matters is: was he justified in doing so?

    The fact people answer this question based on their worldview is wrong. The question must be answered on the facts.

    There are several. It happens a lot. But it isn't a race thing. It is an inner city crime culture thing. Hispanics get shot too. And so do white thug kids. It just isn't as frequent. That is your better argument.

    Absolutely not. Not even close. And if you were honest about this you also would have mentioned that you have heard stories that directly contradict each other because it has been well publicized and there is no way that you didn't hear or read it. I could give two ****s less if you want the cop strung up immediately. We have due process in this country and if you don't like it, too ****ing bad.

    Bingo. It is hard to fight through all the BS to find out if he was justified. Evidence DOES suggest he was, but it will not be confirmed yet for a while.
