    and if they failed to use that word when describing the interaction does that then mean no 'tussle' happened?

    No, "tussle" is being used to downplay what actually happened, which is assault on a police officer, attempted murder of a police officer, failure to obey lawful commands of a police officer, not to mention suspicion of strong arm robbery, and possession of stolen goods...

    So can we just dispense with the dishonesty of trying to make it out like Brown just got in a little slap fight with Wilson please...It's just stupid.

    The first link is Johnson, the second link is Crenshaw (the "other girl"), and the third link is Mitchell.

    Mitchell uses the word tussle in the link I provided. Not sure if Crenshaw does in that video, but she definitely uses it later on in an interview with CNN CNN.com - Transcripts.

    Call the use of the word "tussle" by Crenshaw and Mitchell anything you want, and one could argue with you but not prove you wrong.

    However, claiming that they didn't use that exact word is easily disprovable when we have them on video using that exact word.

    Do you think that "tussle" is a apt description of assault on a police officer, or attempted murder of a police officer?

    Likely the case unfortunately. Reason I absolutely despise the race merchants. Will they be rushing in to urge calm? Doubt it, no money in it for them.

    Thats the first time I heard any of them admit that Brown went for Wilson's gun.

    No, of course not. But the physical evidence that has been leaked also doesn't conclude who started the physical altercation, or exactly what happened during the entire fight. It does indicate that Brown likely did have his hand on Wilson's gun. Whether that was because he was trying to take the gun from Wilson and shoot him with it, or if it was because he thought Wilson was determined to kill him and was trying to stop him, is a question only Michael Brown could have answered, but it would appear to give Wilson a legitimate reason to pull the trigger while he was in the car.

    It doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me that Brown initiated an attack on a police officer but didn't bother to first drop the cigarillos he was holding. Additionally, the fact that he handed the cigarillos to Johnson mid-altercation makes me think that he was taken by surprise when Wilson escalated the situation to the level where he drew his gun. But I'll concede that just because it doesn't make sense, that doesn't mean it didn't happen.
