Of course there are many points in any kind of situation that could de-escalate the situation. It doesn't mean they are realistic, or feasible. Wilson did what was necessary to prevent himself from being killed or seriously injured. That makes his actions "right."
Eyewitness testimony is unreliable. I would like for you to put the same amount of reliability on Wilson's eyewitness account as you seem to place on others inability to recall what they said. As far as eyewitnesses later recanting or changing their story...not anything in this case that was out of the ordinary in that regard. Still the preponderance of eyewitness statements puts Brown in a defenseless position a lot further than 8-10 feet away.
Saying I am grasping at straws when I state that he was wearing basketball shorts is just plain ignorance on your part. The crux of the issue is whether Wilson had a REASONABLE fear for his life. A reasonable person would be able to tell rather quickly if a person dressed like Brown is armed or not. To boot Wilson is trained observer. It is a no-brainer that he should have been able to tell that he was unarmed. I am not saying that Wilson wasn't piss afraid...but he should not have been and she should not have reasonably feared for his life against an unarmed multiple shot wounded man. To suggest he did the right thing is just plain dumb.
What's even worse is people supporting cops who gun down people who defy their orders, now that's stupidity.
Wanton slaughter of other races I am? what and who the **** are you to say that to someone you do not know, who the **** are you? some higher ****ing power or something?
Oh, so you think Wilson thinking that Brown to be the robbery suspect, and trying to stop him was "escalating the confrontation?" When it was his job to do so?
Cute. You still think Wilson shot Brown because he defied his request to get off the street? You patently know nothing about this case. Stop pretending that you do.
You shouldn't be telling other people what to do.
I'm not relying on any of Wilson's witnesses: notice at no point that I referred to any of his witnesses. I focus mainly on the tangible, irrefutable evidence. But if it pleases you, I do confer the same amount of doubt to witnesses supporting Wilson's side (including himself) as I do to those supporting the version of events that Wilson murdered Brown in cold blood. And again, 8-10 is quite close, but further is still close and is in a dangerous zone.
I do see the point you are trying to make (don't think I am ignoring your points), and I agree to some extent. I'm not saying that killing anyone is a good thing or a right thing (maybe except in some cases, like members of ISIS), and it's a tragedy that someone lost his life, but Wilson did what was necessary to protect himself. Wilson won't walk away "free" - he'll be hunted for the rest of his life and still might/most likely will get nailed with civil rights charges.
Wilson will be hunted for the rest of his life, I agree. But he's not an evil man. And it disgusts me that you think he is, based on nothing more than your narrow-minded and ugly narrative to which you are religiously sticking to.
And what was wrong about my suggestions to you? Clearly, you could benefit from spending a bit more time being careful when reading, before going on a baseless, foul tirade again.
