    Yet here you are continuing to push the fact that it was unsupported like it somehow matters this far after it was dropped. All the while ignoring the lies told by Brown's supporters/false witnesses.

    Strange.
    The orbital fracture turned out to be as unfounded as the "eyewitness accounts" of Brown being shot in the back with his hands up.

    I thought the prosecutor did an excellent job of pointing out how social media ran amok in this situation and you had people on both sides claiming and repeating things that had no basis in fact. Once that started to happen, the once responsible media picked up on the false accounts and next thing you know, this was being tried in the court of public opinion. And we the public weren't privy to what the GJ was.

    The only thing we were no privy to in regards to such was the changed narratives from their public statements to that of their actual testimony.
    But it could be told that their original public statements were not truthful.

    What about the press reporting Brown being shot with his hands in the air, not showing him at his current age, and all of that? Do you think it was irresponsible of them to incite a riot?

    Funny how they were pissed about the no fly zone...and last night the ones on the ground were getting hit with bricks.

    Press was reporting eyewitnesses who used their names regarding being shot with hands in the air. The eye fracture was made up, no named sources, just pure fiction. One blogger, known for making stuff up reported it, and the conservative media ate it up and reported it as fact.

    The press didn't report "facts." The press reported what witnesses were saying. Witnesses were saying a lot of different, contradictory things.

    The press was doing its job. Which is to report what people were saying. If you interpreted that as being "facts," that is your problem, if you don't understand the difference between reporting a fact and reporting what a witness is saying.

    That's why the GJ is so important. All the witnesses were presented in person, so they could be questioned, and their statements taken under oath. There were 60 witnesses. A lot of contradiction. Some witnesses, it turned out, didn't really see the incident, and some saw only part of it. The GJ waded through all the testimony, as well as the forensic evidence, and videotapes.

    What the GJ heard and saw....that's evidence. What the press reports is what people SAY to them. Not evidence.

    So the eye witnesses that testified and the officers testimony means nothing to you.
