But standard police procedure...and for ANYONE trying to save their own life...you aim for the largest target...the chest area for the best chance of hitting the attacker.
Here we have a situation with conflicting evidence, racially charged to the point of rioting and the police and two weeks later, the police, already suspect, fail to meet the terms and conditions of the laws under which they are governed. and there is no cause for suspicion there? We are to assume that nothing is being hidden?
Sorry, for justice to be done, justice needs to bee seen to be done. Their position on what happened has changed several time and now has been redacted, contrary to state law. Please, fill in a blank for me, with the streets a war zone, tanks, snipers and RPG's deployed, rioting and racial tensions for nearly two weeks, what possible and legitimate reason could the police have for redacting what is, by law, a public document?
The people of Ferguson deserve the truth, a boy is dead under suspicious circumstances made more circumspect by what appears to be a deliberate attempt to conceal evidence. The police have insulted those people, their intelligence and stolen their dignity by this shameful, corrupt attempt to obstruct justice.

I mean the whole cigar theft crap. It had absolutely zero bearing on the shooting and the police chief acknowledged this saying the shooter cop knew nothing about it when the shooting happened... Looks like a severe sad diversion attempt to sway public opinion.
