    So, had Brown not chosen to steal and be aggressive with the store clerk, he never would have met Officer Wilson.
    Can you provide a link? I saw a report that said the officer didn't know about the store altercation.

    Really? After all the press, and all the articles, and the links to Grand Jury testimony, you want a link to news that's been known for a long time?

    No disrespect intended, but if you're not that up to speed, why are you asking questions?

    No need to be an ahole about it. I specifically recall reports like the following one by the police chief that officer Wilson did not know about the robbery. So did that change? And yes after a while when the media reports on this ad nauseum for months on end I got sick of it except to hear of the indictment verdict.

    I'm sorry, as I wrote, I had no intent to be disrespectful. Obviously you missed that. It has been presented a thousand times, including in the statement of the DA when the GJ decision was announced, that Officer Wilson called for backup after his initial stop when he observed the cigars in Brown's hand, and his perfect match to the broadcast description of the assaulter who committed strong arm robbery at the market.

    It just seems rather remarkable that someone who apparently has paid no attention to the case would question anything about it.

    Because it stokes the fire, as the riots have shown - facts be damned, and further endangers Wilson's life. The fact that his general address and new wife info has been provided by careless journalism does not help.

    Defense can come later. He's cleared at the state level no need to jeapordize his freedom or safety this soon after.

    That's my interpretation of SMTA's comment.

    Wilson just drew the fate straw and the rest played itself out the way Brown chose to handle it.
    If the store owner had a CCW, Officer Wilson's day would have likely been about responding to the justifiable homicide of a big strongarm robber instead of getting treatment for injuries and dealing with the fact that he shot the thug, himself. And so 25 buildings that burned down on Monday would still be standing today.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    In no way was the publishing of his home journalism at all...It was intentionally done by a liberal progressive with an agenda.

    I don't disagree.

    Discretion is the better part of valor.

    The folks in Ferguson don't care, and it serves no value now.

    The GJ decision to return a No Bill has already exonerated him, so he has no reason to defend his actions.
