There...perfectly acceptable speculation. You have absolutely no idea how much time and space he had. I have yet to see info on how far Wilson was from Brown when he was shot and I find this to be critical information.
Have you seen it? Maybe I missed it?

With all the rampaging, destruction and looting by the blacks, how many pairs of work boots were stolen?
Here you mention 'timing'.... What are you talking about? Is there some significance to the day, time of day, month, etc...?
You talk of the "open space", and "distance" as if 35 feet is enough to warrant hesitation from an officer whom may, or may not have been just accosted by the suspect seconds earlier, and possibly injured, and had his weapon attempted to have been taken from him. And you and others speak of this as though he had a 'taser' available to him. Do you know for a fact that ALL police officers in Ferguson are issued tasers? Or that this officer, Wilson had one? Not to mention that if the reports are true, that Brown broke Wilson's eye socket was broken in the attack, and his weapon was gone for, then I'd be pretty confident in saying that at that point tasing a dangerous felon like Brown was out of the question. The training in that situation I would think is to bring the suspect into custody, and to treat him as a deadly threat to the officers life. Especially if the officer is being charged at a second time by the suspect.
As for your absolutely absurd contention that Wilson is some violent, out of control cop, bent on murder, and not in control of his rage at being attacked. That is based on what exactly? All reports about this officer are of a completely measured man in total control of not only his emotions, but a professional on the job...
So how do you square these reports with the laughable rhetoric you are posting?Darren Wilson, a 28-year-old white officer, has patrolled suburban St. Louis for six years and had no previous complaints filed against him, Jackson said.
The police chief described Wilson as "a gentle, quiet man" who had been "an excellent officer." He has been on the Ferguson force for four years and served prior to that in the neighboring community of Jennings.
Wilson, who was placed on administrative leave after the Aug. 9 shooting, "never intended for any of this to happen," Jackson said.
