    And the left wing idiots are already out. They will attack the cop no matter what the evidence shows.

    Why does this make more sense to me than "dude was a dip**** idiot who decided to bumrush someone pointing a deadly weapon at him, after he had already decided to flee in terror"
    Why does this make just as much sense to me?:

    Michael Brown was a violent thug who had already decided to assault a police officer in his car and then had already decided to walk insolently away. Then when the officer told him to stop Brown decided to mockingly put his hands over his head before deciding to move threateningly toward the officer, just as he had decided to move threateningly toward the convenience store clerk who he had decided to rob and assault a few minutes earlier.

    ‘A dozen witnesses’ say Ferguson teen attacked cop before shooting | New York Post

    Multiple witnesses in riot-torn Ferguson, Mo., said that the unarmed black teen killed by a white cop attacked the officer in his patrol car before the teen was shot, according to a new report.

    “Police sources tell me more than a dozen witnesses have corroborated cop’s version of events in shooting,” St. Louis Post-Dispatch crime reporter Christine Byers tweeted, without elaborating.




    Darren Wilson is 100% innocent.

    The fact that there were numerous witnesses and apparently differing accounts is exactly why it is a good thing that a Grand Jury is looking into the matter. Such an examination is crucial to understanding what took place and then deciding afterward whether or not criminal charges should be filed.

    At this point the only sensible thing to do is wait for the grand jury to do its thing. When it's complete, we'll hear more about why they decided to file charges or not.

    I am not saying they will be correct to file them, or correct to not file them, but when we know the facts and the evidence and what the grand jury / DA decides to do going forward, then we can evaluate if they made the right call or not.

    At this point, the public statements from those who claim to be witnesses contradict each other too much for there to be any clarity.

    On the other hand, the video is hardly conclusive. The two men told CNN they heard an initial shot but did not see how the confrontation started. (Police say Brown struck the officer in the face inside his patrol car, then reached for the officer’s gun.) About 30 seconds later, they said, they saw a staggering Brown turn around, put his arms up and cry, “OK, OK, OK.” The officer, they said, fired again anyway.

    Theres more than a few liberals on this site that have called for cooler heads and a wait and see mentality. Everything you just said could be applied to 'conservatives' that are in a hurry to make the police action the only right response.

    I saw the video and you could clearly see the guys confusion/frustration in real time. TBH I think more ppl will listen bc they're white and don't want to be identified. They aren't from ferguson either so nobody can say there's a bis since there's no personal connection.

    Does it matter to you the autopsy doesn't support their accounts?

    Ferguson is old news now. Barely an afterthought.

    It's Ray Rice and Roger Goodell now.

    That'll pass soon, too.

    And about 3% of the country is paying any attention to ISIS.
