    Even if it unfolded exactly the way conservative media has sold it, it's utterly irrelevant. It is in fact, no more relevant than these stories about his cop.

    The only thing that actually matters is what happened in that moment when he was shot.
    Before he was shot, the officer was told about the robbery. Originally, he didn't know about it. Then, when he was told about the robbery, things started to go south.

    You can't unring the bell. He knew about the robbery, he told the guys to freeze. They didn't.

    "Couldn't care less" is what you're going for. And now my feelings are hurt.

He came back with a couple of security guards, and my husband was like, "I have to go find my wife!" and he ran. Hilarious when I think about it. I'm flipping through video games, and he comes running towards me with this big grin on his face, security guards and this little wet-behind-the-ears manager running closely behind. "Leave the ****, honey! I'm getting banned!"

    And then we were escorted out.
    Nice.

    Honestly though, you probably could've gotten the little twat fired if you'd complained to corporate.

    Then he must have also known they were unarmed. They "allegedly" took cigars for gods sake.

    I was too pissed at the time. We snuck in a couple of months later and the guy was gone. He was probably transferred to Toys R Us or something more suited to his speed. And size.

    How was he supposed to know they were unarmed? He probably left behind his police-issue x-ray vision goggles that day.

    And they didn't look like they were "allegedly" taken from the store. The video was pretty clear. 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 post this then try and distance yourself from it because nobodys reaction was like, oh this changes everything!! Its sooo blatantly obvious what your motives were, and that was to sway public opinion about this cop. And you failed miserably.

    You know me so much better than I know myself. Thank you for enlightening me as to my true intentions.
