    Did you read any of my posts in this thread?? That's the point. The only thing we should be concerned about was what happened in that moment between the two people involved.

    But that isn't the only thing that will be of concern in court.

    Someone's actions just prior to committing a crime go a long way in court. If you don't want to believe it fine.... but I do speak from a good amount of experience in the 50+ trials I was involved in as a police officer.

    So why don't you folks take some of that righteous "outrage" all stirred up from this because of this post and see if you can maybe muster up just a tiny shred of empathy for Michael Browns family or some genuine respect for due process.

    But attempting to portray him as guilty of something via the actions of his family is wrong. As I was told in my interview for the police department I worked at for 7 years, "You can choose your friends, but you can't choose your family".

    As for the department he worked at......Who knows if he was part of the problem or not.... without a personnel file on him from that department, its just guilty by association. And frankly, expecting him to quit if he noticed the problem too is just dumb when you consider a man has bills to pay.
    Maybe he was the whistleblower. We might never know.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    empathy
    [em-puh-thee]

    noun
    1.
    the intellectual identification with or vicarious experiencing of the feelings, thoughts, or attitudes of another.


    By this definition I think we can all have empathy for Browns family, but they have nothing to do with this incident.

    It appears Brown brought this on himself and I have no sympathy for criminals.

    Why is Browns family important to you? Do you know them?

    I saw MB, as you call him, steal then rough up a store clerk. Officer Wilsons MOTHER got in trouble with the law many years ago.
    The two things have no bearing on the other.

    Out of curiousity from another debate here- do you issue traffic citations and if so do you appear in court as a witness? You don't have to answer if you can't give out that kind of info but just wondering.

    Maybe Wilson's mother came to Brown in a dream and told him to do what he did.

    If the criminal defenders try hard enough they can come up with a connection.

    I love how people are cherry picking the information released on MB. As if they only thing printed about him was that he "strong armed" a store clerk. Which BTW you really don't know as fact the circumstances surrounding.

    Let's just focus on that. Not his past, or the officer's past. Let's just focus on what happened the day he was shot.
    And also the fact, good shoot or bad, it wouldn't have happened had he himself not escalated the situation.
