    if that happened, I would not lose much sleep if his brother gave the NYT writer a serious beating, after killing the killer

    No kidding.

    I was in a minor gunfight years ago, and decisive action and determination is immediately required.

    Sadly, that is correct.

    Sorry but this isn't the 1950'. Crime is over represented in the black community (blue and white collar). Once Brown tried to get that gun he wasn't unarmed. Punching a cop is assault and is a legal defense for the shooting in this case.

    Stop making excuses for thuggery, its as tired as the war on women.

    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.
    Let us not confuse the idea that he was in his rights with doing the right thing..... He may have been within his rights; but he killed an unarmed man, that is rarely doing "the right thing."

    I am sure a ton of people could speculate about a number of things Wilson could have done differently to prevent the death of an unarmed man. That level of second guessing was never a subject to the investigation.

    This is one of those times when it was the right thing.

    You have absolutely zero basis to make that statement, but that did not stop you from doing so....
