You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

IOW, a dangerous suspect. I believe he absolutely acted accordingly.If Wilson was such an even tempered good cop he would know this and act accordingly.
I am exactly the same size and weight...It takes me about 4 seconds to cover 40 feet.Brown would have had to run 40 feet away to be bum rushing back and still be dropped 35 feet from the cruiser.
Not sure he even had one, nor that after having a suspect try to gain access to his gun it would be the correct call to use it if he did....The goal for a cop is to return home safely after his/her shift, not take unnecessary risk to his own life...Maybe that would work in the movies but we are talking about real life.How long for a professional cop to holster his piece and pull his Taser?
Now you are changing what I said, the only reason for you to do that is that you know I may be correct, and that would destroy what you are building here...Now, I don't know if he had a taser, or not, but neither do you, and you need to temper your own out of control rhetoric about things you don't know.Don't even try to tell me that Ferguson cops have all that high tech SWAT equipment on their force and can't afford Tasers for their patrolmen.
Prove it...Show me the standard equipment issue for the Ferguson police force.Tasers are pretty much standard equipment for all cops these days.
Ask any cop.
i am saying anyone not using a walker or a cane can cover 35 feet in no more than 3 seconds
35 feet is nothing.....
i am old, fat, and out of shape....and still could do it under 3 seconds (EASILY)
and all you have to do is go to any high school football field and have a few friends try
in shape...out of shape....it wont matter
you can walk 35 feet in 5-6 seconds MAX

If you used your gun to shoot an un-armed suspect running away down a busy city street at noon you would be in the same trouble Wilson is in.
