"The law is reason, free from passion."
The mere fact that there are 4 witnesses that say they saw Wilson shot a surrendering man presents doubt.
The GJ isn't there to determine guilt or how many shots, or who is lying ... all they are looking for is doubt.
This case is going to trial.

One of the witnesses said it looked like the cop tried to hit MB with the patrol car door after he tried to cut him off. But was the cop deliberately trying to hit MB with the car door or was MB blocking the door and preventing the cop from getting out of the car?
Shots were fired while the cop was still in the car and since the autopsy shows that six bullets hit MB then it's highly likely that at least a few of those bullets hit him (in the hand and arm?) causing him to back away from the car door which then allowed Wilson to finally get out and proceed to fire four more shots one of which was the fatal bullet to the head. I dunno, it makes more sense that MB would have been backing away from a cop firing a gun at him from inside a patrol car rather than waiting to charge him after he got out of the car.

Like that ridiculously slanted audio tape you presented as "proof" that Brown was running towards Wilson.
The perceived number of gunshots on that recording is a perfect example of how people's perception gets skewed when they are told in text what to hear before they really listen.
The quality of that recording was so poor and there was so much distracting background noise and yelling that if you played that for ten people with no text overlay you would get ten different interpretations of what was said.
