    Let's hope not, that would only widen this tragedy.

    This is a joke. The guy cannot live a normal life because he did the RIGHT thing. What a joke. I wish we could prosecute those who posted his address. Even if it was redacted.
    Wilson got to escape criminal justice, but it looks like he cannot escape poetic justice. (Inb4 OH MAH GAD PHYS U JUST CONDONED VIOLENSSS!)

    Sadly you are right. Anything for additional viewers, the mainstream media will do, even if it incites violence against fellow human beings.

    And is that not EXACTLY how the legal system is SUPPOSED to work??

    I don't think my post addressed the legal aspects. I was attempting to make the point that it far easier to sit down, grab an adult beverage, and take all time you need to make a decision than to make a life determining decision in a few seconds at most.

    Do you think there should be some sort of "five-second rule" wherein any course of actions made entirely within that time frame should be immune from legal scrutiny?

    It has been my experience as a journalist across four provinces that in any 'use of force' issue, the police will present the evidence in a manner favorable to them. I have investigated more than a few, and 97% of complaints of police mistreatment are empty and often exaggerated. However, when its the officers' fault, every measure will be to make those involved appear a victim, stress the "danger" of policing [one of the safest occupations in the world] and 'omit' evidence in their public presentation.

    One of the grossest I've ever seen was right here in my city..

    The more I hear from this guy and from those in support of him, the more odor I detect. I heard the whole Wilson interview, and he just doesn't ring true to me

    Its not simple, its actually quite complex. Let's start with the fact that you have no basis to declare him a thug, other than that "thug" has become a euphemism for black man. The question is whether Wilson could have acted differently such that Micheal Brown would be alive today.... alive not only to celebrate Thanksgiving with his family, but alive to tell his story, which has not been told.

    Its simple, because to far too many, all inner city black kids are thugs and all white cops are peacekeeping heros. The world has one less thug; must be a good day. Sorry, but life ain't that simple.

    Thugs=criminals. Brown had just assaulted a shop owner, for example. The cop knew a shop had just been robbed by a thug and heres one with tobacco for blunts. Thugs punch cops, and try to steal their guns. He was a thug.

    Brown is probably in the best place, from my view.

    ...where is "thug" a euphemism for "black man"? That seems like something suburbanites might think or something.
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.
