A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
Even with the fact that he had recently assaulted a store clerk, I think it is going to be a stretch to say that Brown then made what?- two banzai charges against an armed opponent, and that he remained so dangerous after being wounded, he needed to be put down- again.
Sure, the "double banzai charge, incredibly dangerous even when wounded" scenario could have happened. Likewise, it is possible, that an officer could decide to murder somebody he has stopped.
In short, both the:
A. double banzai charge to the death possibility and
B. a hypothetical officer tried to murder me during the traffic stop possibility are pretty extraordinary.
For me, both would need something besides "my word alone proves this is what happened" to make them credible. In the actual case of Wilson, the additional proof could be that Brown had a penchant for "to the death" assaults, he was on PCP, he was on a "roid rage" etc.
So far though, there appears to be nothing else to support the shooting other than the word of the shooter. For me, this is not good enough in this case.

2011 or 2012 - Again near the Empire State Building. During a shoot out with a gunman two cops fired something like 15 rounds and hit 9 bystanders. All the bystanders were hit by police bullets.
It does happen.

A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.
