    Look at the autopsy.

    The bullet wounds are in the wrong place if he had had his hands up.

    I am sure you can find it online.

    Why do you use words like "it's been proven"?

    You know there has been no trial as of yet so the evidence is open to interpretation.

    Look, you lost the point and the argument, you know it, we all know it. You were wrong about this one, face up to it.
    Not if the point was to deflect from the topic. That was attempted quite well, as usual.

    Eye witness accounts differ, though. Some say Brown was trying to surrender and other say he was moving towards Wilson. It's not the case that the story that Brown was surrendering is to be believed by default.

    Why do I care? The defendant deserves to be KILLED that is what they bring on themselves.

    Absolutely and demonstrably false. The robbery occurred just a few minutes before the shooting-Brown had fled with a bunch of stolen merchandise (and was seen being quite aggressive on the video footage). The cop had heard just prior to asking Brown to move out of the street (he was walking down the middle of it) about a robbery in the area, and when he approached he saw that Brown was HOLDING MERCHANDISE THAT MATCHED THE ROBBERY DESCRIPTION. So we have a thug who likely thought that the cop was onto him, and we know from the officer that he now suspected Brown was involved in the robbery.

    As this was happening, Brown reached into the officers vehicle, punched the cop, and tried to pull his gun, in the ensuing struggle the gun fired twice inside the vehicle-and the cop was still in his drivers seat.

    So to say it had NOTHING to do with the shooting is silly, it did.

    Re: Police Officer in Ferguson Is Said to Recount a Struggle

    You take those article at face value? An unnamed source who was not there? I read that the officer did not suffer a fractured eye socket and that it was proven to be false. I need more evidence...
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Harsh and very sad. I am sure if it was your son, you'd be singing a different tune.

    And no, I am not a conspiracy theorist. But it does not take one to think that perhaps the officer used too much force, especially with the eye witness accounts of his surrendering. I'd venture to opine that the officer was pissed and let his anger take over rather than handle this situation in the manner that he should have been trained. From what I know, Michael Brown was certainly more a thug than a hero. Regardless, the brutality of his death should not be overlooked, don't you think?
    Cops shoot to stop the threat. Brown was huge (over 6'2, 250 lbs IIRC) and he was amped up on adrenalin (sympathetic stimulation) just prior to being shot-the simple physics of the case indicate that despite several gun shot wounds he was able to continue charging the cop. The last shot fired-a head shot-is what it took to stop the threat.

    You dont have the backround knowledge to make a cogent argument here. Emotion speaking against logic.

    I doubt his son would be a robber and violent thug would-be cop killer.
