    Why would you look at other information about Brown from that day?

    The video shows his frame of mind shortly before he encountered the officer.

    Are you denying the family of Brown and his accomplice admitted it was Brown on the video?

    Brown. I believe he escalated the situation with the same attitude and behavior he demonstrated in the store minutes earlier. I don't know if the shoot was good or bad but I believe it wouldn't have happened had he not been defying the cop. Anytime you do that it will never end well for you regardless of skin color. And in today's world with today's police you pull it on the wrong cop you could end up full of holes.

    People say these things like its so simple. Just quit. Who cares about housing, food, bills, etc. Just quit because its an evil evil place to work.

    Most people, especially those working for small town police departments... can't afford to just walk away from a decent paying job (better than most small town jobs) because there are those around them that suck.
    I work with a lot of first responders, and the first job of many is not where they necessarily want to be but a beginning from which they can move on and move up. For example, if the police department is super-competitive, they make take a job as a jailer at the sheriff's office or in a nearby smaller town. It's a start. Firefighters often work for a volunteer department for a couple of years and then apply to the city fire department. Etc.

I don't honestly know why he was shot, but there is almost certainly some evidence somewhere that will give us a good picture of why, whether the reason was right or wrong that the cop had in doing so.
    Dr. Baden said in his press conference that one key piece of information he didn't have and that we don't know is about the gun residue on Brown's clothing. I imagine there is other information that has also not yet been made public.

    The stuff about family life is relevant to the extent that it could make him prone to anger and violence. It is most definitely relevant that he came from a police department that had to be disbanded due to frequent excessive force complaints. A similarly abusive culture appears to have permeated the Ferguson police department. Such an environment does make the odds of him being prone to excessive use of force much higher.

    Frankly, I'm just as appalled by the release of this kind of information about this officer as I am by the blatant attempts at manipulating the narrative by the release of personal information about MB. Can we all agree to ignore this kind of crap?
    I'm not appalled by the release of this information. In fact, I'm glad it was released in light of how some have tried to smear Michael Brown who isn't here to defend himself.

    That said, I don't think this definitively proves anything about Wilson.

    Anymore than the info released about Brown proves he deserved to be shot. Right?
