    Pretty sure he doesn't have to administer CPR to Brown. I would hope that he did check for a pulse, but then he could have been traumatized. Despite popular belief, shooting and killing someone is not something a cop does cheerfully or without emotion, not most cops anyway.
    There is no evidence that he even took a pulse, all he did was pace back and forth. And I am only relatively certain that he did not have the autopsy results at the time.

    For all the apologizing and excuse making that is going on for police officers, the guy who picks up your trash has a far more dangerous job. This is made especially true when police officers get to shoot at anything they think is threatening, and we make excuses for their blatent disregard for life.

    Perhaps he was pacing because he was thinking "****, I just killed someone", or something along those lines..

    I would be, but then I have no desire to become a police officer so that's probably not a situation I'd end up in.

    Police officers have a unique job. However, the danger is overplayed and the responsibility is underplayed.

    NO the parents' anger is not justified when they direct it toward another who may very well be innocent of all wrongdoing. The parents aligned themselves with the race baiters like Al Sharpton early on and with the medias help ratcheted up the rhetoric to whip people into a lynch mob mentality. They painted their son as the "gentle giant" gunned down by a dirty white cop. When the video of their son roughing up the store clerk using his size to intimidate while stealing a box of cigars was released, the parents responded calling it "character assassination". huh? The witnesses making claims that Brown was shot in the back, gunned down like an animal, hands up etc. turned out to not be true either and two of the three witnesses have backed away from their original comments. The third witness was Brown's accomplice in the robbery who has a warrant out for his arrest for falsifying a police report and for stealing in another county.

    How do you know Brown doesn't have a police record? He was just 18. Anything prior to his 18th birthday are juvenile records and they are sealed and have to go through the courts to be opened.

    How do you know Brown was ready to start college this Fall? Usually colleges do not release information on student enrollment His school records showed that he transferred high schools and had to complete a special program to make up for missing credits to graduate. And your comments as if to say a black to graduate from college is some kind of rare occurrence is absolutely demeaning.

    I have been loosely following this story.
    While it is a tragedy that this young man is dead, it does not sound like this was a case of a bad cop.
    People need to look at this from the perspective of what a real racial cop shooting looks like.
    Man shot by police officer in his driveway in Bellaire | null
    Robert Tolan's case is winding it's way through the courts, but this looks like a racial shooting.
    Thrown to the ground in his Parents driveway, for the crime of a black man driving a nice car.
    His mother came out and told the officer it was his car, and was thrown against the wall.
    Tolan stood up to say something and was shot.

    Lol. At least you allow your opinion to be viewed as "loose."

    Sounds to me like typical, eh black guy unjustly killed but wasn't caught on tape so no big deal, deflection.

    I'm still wondering why he was living with his grandmother.

    Ah, this opinion explains your perspective here so far.

    Is being a police officer one of the most dangerous jobs? Do you have any idea what you're talking about when you decide to chime in?

    Or how about the difference between cause and effect?
