Hard core partisans on both side often demand full acceptance of their biased views.
To be running at full speed back at Wilson Brown would need more than 5 feet to get going . Probably more like 10 or 15, putting his distance to run at more like 55 feet. He was a heavy smoker and just had a tussle with a cop through the window of the SUV where he had to break free before he could start running.
Now for the record I don't believe he ran back towards Wilson at all . I believe that he turned and was shot almost immediately and surrendered when he found out this cop was playing for real and he felt the burn of his flesh being ripped away. I believe that at that point, consistent with at least three eye-witnesses he was going down on the ground hands up, when the last two shots were fired.
He was wearing shorts and he had no abrasions on his knees indicating that he went down slowly not at a full run as some have suggested. One shot entering his right eye socket going through his jaw and into his chest just above his collar-bone.
The next going through the very top of his head and lodging in the front part of his brain, as per the autopsy.
It was this last and the only lethal shot that makes this a murder. Had Wilson stopped firing after the eye shot Brown would, most likely, have survived this shooting.
Someone that large, who reacts violently and intimidatingly to people around them, should expect good citizens not to put up with that kind of storm arming BS. That is the lesson. Don't be a bully and you want get shot.
Have you ever been pepper sprayed? Ever seen it used? I have some friends in department of corrections, they have to continue fighting while being pepper sprayed as part of their training. Pepper spray doesn't immobilize people. Tasers are only 85% effective, and that also means that the darts have to go in.
At the point of someone trying to take the gun from an officer...you must treat that person as someone who is willing to kill.
The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.
You practice quickly and smoothly moving your clothing out of the way (most will be concealed weapons), removing retention mechanism on holster, drawing, and aiming. And timing it. Your life may depend on it. Many of us even train for competitions doing those very things....TIMED competitions.
all shots were fired with milliseconds of each other.. they hit virtually all within fraction of seconds of ech other..
You are good at wrtiing fiction and what you and Sharpton dream this being.. so far you have no source other then "what you dream this is"
