Nevertheless, I similarly anticipate Ferguson to erupt once again after this police officer is cleared of any wrongdoing.
    Those folks aren't going to be charged with anything.

    You bitch and moan about so called race batters, but you engage in the same thing just from the other side. Calling the incident a shootout is just another example of that. You may as well call it a terrorist incident or claim the officer was defending himself against a rape attempt as either claim was be no less bullish** than calling it a shootout.

    The original claim was that his hands were up surrendering.
    Other witnesses mimicked that false claim.
    That claim, from these witnesses then went from - they were up surrendering, to - they were up just a little, to - they were just going up.
    Secondly. "Hands up" is a position of fact. (Which has already changed by the witnesses.)
    The interpretation of that, "surrendering", is nothing more than speculation, and given the circumstances, incredible speculation, as his hands up were most likely in the form of;, and at the same time he was, taunting the Officer about shooting him before he charged.
    The original narrative was that Brown was walking on the sidewalk, headed to maw-maw's house, minding his own business...lol!

    Complete BS by someone who knows absolutely nothing about self defense. This is about RACE, hating white people, making black people out to be a victim, and the politics of extreme left vote buying.

    Because I asked if someone has ever been in a shootout I'm race-baiting! Um...

    Let's get one thing straight, before we proceed...I didn't call this a shootout.

    What training do you feel would enable YOU to handle being physically attacked by a much stronger person?

    Two shots were fired inside the vehicle, during the struggle.

    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?
    Ok, let's take the brutality into account. Now what?
