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.Its simple, because to far too many, all inner city black kids are thugs and all white cops are peacekeeping heros.
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.
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.
