    he kept advancing, while getting shot, from over 100 feet away?

    remarkable endurance/pain threshhold, and remarkable accuracy under duress with a service issued gun?

    You obviously did not pay attention to the information from the dynamic incident.
    It wasn't static.
    Wilson had to back up as Brown kept charging.

    And?
    Why do you think that matters?
    He actually ran further than that as he turned around and charged the Officer causing the Officer to back up.
    Really, you have no point.
    We know he ran after he got shot in the hand at the vehicle and got some distance before the Officer was able to get out of his vehicle.

    let's say your account ^ is correct.
    at 100 feet away, unarmed, how is he a dangerous lethal threat to the office- and hence worth continuing to be shot at?

    it's obvious from the testimony the office was not a highly accurate shot- why was he continuing to fire (and hence tragically perhaps hit a bystander?)

    think about what you just said.

    Wtf?
    He wasn't a hundred feet away from the Officer.
    They were both moving in that direction with the Officer commanding him to stop, which he finally did, only to start charging the Officer.
    The Officer indicated that Brown got to within 15 feet of him causing him to back up.

    The Officer's over-all accuracy is irrelevant to this argument. D'oh!

    You saying, "Let's say" just shows you do not know the evidence.

    It only takes a moment for the brain to decide if its a flight or fight situation. Wilson said he had to fight because he thought Brown was going to shoot him with his own gun. That would suggest that Wilson had his gun pulled out and Brown was close enough to try and wrestle the gun away or try to turn it toward Wilson. No doubt a struggle ensued and the gun went off inside the vehicle and grazed Brown in the hand(?) and caused him to back off(?) and allowed Wilson to pump him full of lead (6 of 12 bullets fired hit Brown). Apparently, the entire confrontation took place within 90 seconds. I think there was plenty of time to do the math.

    Meh, the jury is still out for me.
    I agree with most of what you said, but I don't understand why you seem to not know the sequence of events. Wilson clearly explained every shot during the interview. Did you not watch it?

    investigators concluded that he died more than 100 feet from the officer's vehicle.

    not sure why I'm banging my head against the wall any more with you if you can't understand how the pieces don't all seem to connect?

    And again. What is it you do not understand about the dynamic incident? It wasn't static.

    Being a hundred feet from the vehicle does not mean he was a hundred feet from the officer. Do you really not understand that?

    You not understanding that simple fact suggests that you are not capable of understanding that the pieces do connect. Clearly you are in, and the cause of, the vicious circle of head banging you are in. It is a no win situation for you. Unless you come back to reality quick, you will be stuck in it.
