    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.

    Darren Wilson: Attorneys discuss his time in hiding - CNN.com

    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.
    He's been in hiding since 3 days after the shooting not since his address was published. Based on the video of the people in Ferguson it looks like it was snowing, not lawn mowing weather.

    Stealing from and beating on a store owner a fraction of his size, then attacking a police officer is ample basis to declare him a thug.


    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.

    Brown could have acted differently and had he made better choices, he'd be alive today. Wilson was defending his life and did nothing wrong.

    This has nothing to do with race. Well, maybe it does because if it was a white guy who was shot, there would not have been all the riots and protests. The ones making it about race are those blaming the cop.

    there was no robbery.... there may have been a shoplift, but since there was no charge nor trial and since he is entitled to the presumption of innocence, then he is entitled to the same conclusion of status as Wilson. The GJ decided there was no basis to charge Wilson, so he is presumed innocent; there were no charges filed against Brown, so he too is presumed innocent.....

    I do know about you, buy surely our reading audience sees the double standard you are hiding behind.

    Even if you wish to run with the notion that he was a suspect in a shoplift, that crime does not make him any more eligible to be shot than he if were coming from church. It is completely irrelevant.

    Brown wasn't shot because of his 'alleged' shoplifting. He was shot because he assaulted a cop and tried to grab his gun. If you pull that kind of stunt on a cop, chances are you are going to get shot.

    And rightfully so.

    Thank you for making my point. I know the shoplift had nothing to do with shooting, nor is it anyway relevant. People keep trying to make the point that it is.

    We really don't know why he was shot as no trial was held; we simply know that upon review of the facts, there wasn't enough to warrant charges.

    Maybe you should speak for yourself. I am not evil. But if you think you are, maybe you should do some self-evaluation and change who and what you are, rather than smear everyone with your twisted thinking.

    He robbed the store and assaulted the clerk.

    Stop acting like he was excecuted. He got into a fight with a cop and was shot in the process; a fight that he started.

    Wilson has become a liability. One the city can no longer afford. If he stayed he would be part to lawsuit after lawsuit and the city wants no part. Wilson has cost the city millions and they can not afford anymore.

    No municipality or PD will touch wilson with a 10' pole. He is a walking lawsuit.

    He doesn't have to leave Ferguson, but he will have to leave.
    Wilson hasn't cost them anything. Brown has. Wilson was just defending his life, and it's a shame that that thug has now ruined the officer's career.
