    A LEG
    AN ARM
    A HAND
    A FOOT

    Those are "small targets" which if missed in a situation that calls for a quick reaction, means the death of an officer.



    And with the level of stupidity you have displayed here Im done debating with you.

    You can't unring the bell. He knew about the robbery, he told the guys to freeze. They didn't.
    I haven't seen anything that says he knew at any point the Brown was a suspect. Do you mind telling me your source please?

    I havent seen anyone take that position, at least not seriously.

Looks like the owner was pretty pissed off about it, too - at least until he was grabbed around the neck by that sweet, innocent little ole' college bound, wide-eyed innocent. Why would the owner be going nuts if they hadn't taken anything? The guy wasn't an idiot. He was half the size of Brown.
    So you state that you don't pay any attention to the smear yet you make mocking comments abut the "that sweet, innocent little ole' college bound, wide-eyed innocent. " Way to walk the talk.

    The point is, that who video is utterly irrelevant. It was released for no reason other than to smear this kid and influence peoples opinion of his character so that when the cops offer their side of the story people would find it more believable. But I will say I don't consider this kid any more likely to have jumped a cop who had stopped him, knowing that cop has a gun and that he doesn't, just because he stole some cigars at a market.

    I have sympathy for Brown's and Wilson's families. This is horrible for both.

    However it's been completely outside of the discussion of events...as it should be. (Not due process, that's fine)

    How about it was released to show his state of mind when faced with a police officer after his strong arm robbery?

    So what do you think Browns state of mind was after stealing cigars, roughing up the shopkeeper, and then deciding he deserved to break pedestrian laws by walking down the middle of the street?

    But, yes I wrote alot of citations and when required I did appear in court as a witness. What happened where I worked was the first court date (the one on the citation) was in "administrative court" where basically you pay, or you let them know you are challenging the citation. If you are challenging the citation then they reschedule your case for the trial court room the officer is assigned to. Once THAT new court date comes up, the Officer is subpoenaed to be there and the case is handled.

    But each court district may handle traffic citations differently within the same state. And obviously different states handle the cases differently than other states, etc.
    Did you have to submit to the subpoena? Here in WA st I dont know if there is a subpoena issued but the rest is like you described. But here, cops dont necessarily show up for the court date. And if they dont, the ticket/violation is dismissed. This does go back a few yrs, but not more than 7 or so.

    You know, that's been my same response when reading your posts.

    So, no comment then? It's a legitimate question.
