    The link didn't work too well for me, but I am sympathetic to Wilson.

    If it's true that he just asked Brown to walk on the sidewalk instead of in the street, it seems Brown was acting as he was acting inside the convenience store.

    Yes, it's too bad Brown was not simply incapacitated, but doo-doo happens when guns are involved.

    The video link?
    If so, it was a copy and paste error and was noticed and fixed.

    Having lived, worked, and gone to school with blacks, and I even have some at my family reunion, to me it was obvious by looking at his graduation picture this was a black man with a bad attitude that was headed for serious trouble. After seeing the video in the convenience store that just backed it up. He would have eventually ended up in our prison system if he had not been killed.

    I have no sympathy for the 6 foot 9 350 pound bully that got his way by being aggressive. Seems to me he picked the wrong man to be aggressive with.

    You know, I understand you're referring to Officer Wilson, but in reality, the wrong person to be aggressive with was the store clerk.

    Wilson just drew the fate straw and the rest played itself out the way Brown chose to handle it.

    I really have no sympathy for either of them.

    I don't understand your statement. Why is it a good idea to be aggressive with a police officer especially if he has a gun?

    I have sympathy for the officer if Brown had left him no choice but to use his firearm. If a 6 foot 9 350 pound man was attacking me through my vehicle window and I had a firearm you're damn right I would shoot the mf'er. I don't care what color his skin was. Hell I'd probably shoot a skinhead a lot faster.

    I moved to a school in Michigan that had just had a race riot. I was bounced off a few lockers in the hallways and the black hall monitor looked the other way. I've seen my share of blacks with bad attitudes.

    Well, of course it's not. However, Brown stole the cigars and "got aggressive" (assaulted) with the store clerk first. That aggression (and theft) was called in to the police, and in the end resulted in Wilson's interaction with Brown.

    So, had Brown not chosen to steal and be aggressive with the store clerk, he never would have met Officer Wilson.
