    So your contention is when criminals become violent, cops should allow them to run away and wait for backup. Then, when said criminal hurts another citizen (which this guy had already done), the complaint will be "why did the cop let him get away". It's obvious to me that LEO's are in a lose lose situation 90% of the time. Damned if they do, damned if they dont. A great example is black "leaders" in Ferguson complaining about not having National Guard and riot police protecting local businesses when last time rioting occurred they complained that the reaction was too militarized.

    He needs a PR Team to handle him now (and probably a bodyguard or two). If I were in charge of him, I would not recommend that he do this for many reasons. Not the least among which he looks quite different than the picture/pictures we had seen of him, which were of him in his police uniform earlier in the year receiving an award of some sort. This makes him more recognizable. Just my 2 cents.

    Oh, and **** the media. They share responsibility for how this whole thing got so out of hand. He owes them, and us, nothing.

    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.
    did you not read the testimony and statements that were offered to the public? the part about the distance brown fled before he turned around and began his "rush" at the officer?
    protip, it doesnt seem to allow math to add up for a death of 120 feet or more from the vehicle.

    You are speaking more nonsense.
    Why do you still not understand that the total measurement from the vehicle does add up.
    Brown ran and continue to run after the Officer was able to get out of the car with the Officer commanding him to stop. They both moved far from the vehicle.
    This is supported not just by Officer Wilson's account but by other actual witness testimony.
    It is you who obviously does not understand the dynamics of a chase and how far a person can run in a short amount of time.

    Ferguson police say Michael Brown was a robbery suspect, identify Darren Wilson as officer who shot him - The Washington Post
    St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar did say Brown was hit “multiple times” and died about 35 feet from the police car where the confrontation occurred.

    Ferguson Documents: Officer Darren Wilson's Testimony : The Two-Way : NPR
    a similar number is given in this document (25-35 'feet')

    now explain how 35 feet from the vehicle adds up to over 120 feet from the vehicle?

    did he mean 35 yards? maybe so. will we ever know? doubtful.

    It's just a shame that almost nobody is noticing this seeming error or contradiction ? Maybe they're too busy posting on message boards.

    First. Let me get this oput of the way.
    Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!



    That said.
    Just how in the world do you think what the chief said is relevant?
    Huh?
    Was he a witness? Did he testify?
    If you do not know the answer to those is "no", something is wrong.

    1. You have no idea why the Chief said what he did.
    It could have been an error in reading or in the information he was given, 35 yards instead of feet.
    It could also have even been a purposeful lie to trick the false witnesses. You do know Police do that, right?

    2. It doesn't matter one bit to what was testified to the Grand Jury.
    The fact that it mattes not one iota is the bottom line, and you bringing it up is grasping in the extreme.

    I watched the interview last night on the news, and found Wilson to be quite credible. I think he did the best he could do under the circumstances.

    At least as demonstrated in the convenience store video and Wilson's story, Brown was a bully, at least that day at that time. No angel, he.

    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?
    Let me try to help you out in why you aren't understanding.. 100 feet from the vehicle does not equal 100 feet from the Darren Wilson. Get it?

    and 100 feet isn't the # the police chief gave 2 months ago(35 feet from vehicle), and it's a number that is seemingly contradicted by a statement in the released testimony document (~30 feet IIRC).

    Get it?

    Completely irrelevant to the discussion that was occuring. What we do know based on the evidence is that brown was close enough to Wilson to cause Wilson to fear for his life and continue backpeddaling to keep distance. It was not 100 feet away.
