    My problem is not so much with Wilson, its with all the people that think nothing of the fact that an unarmed 18 year old man, someone's son, ended up dead. They look past the tragedy of this and think its all "the right thing" to have happened. It amazes me how many trivialize the lives of others.... particularly inner city black males.
    I don't know of anybody who thinks that the death of an 18-year old, somebody's son, is "nothing." I surely would never trivialize any human life, and race (gender, orientation, religion, blah-blah-blah) have nothing to do with it. It's tragic that Michael Brown's life was cut short, but his choices led to his death.

    I do think that Officer Wilson did what was right. He was upholding his duty, and he also had the right to defend his own life. But you can be satisfied that his life as he once knew it is ruined, as is his career in Ferguson, and that he will live in fear for quite some time.

    Okay, that has nothing to do with stop and frisk, though. Good talk?

    when less than 6% of the population causes more than half the murders that suggests that this same group is rightfully getting more police attention than say elderly Hasidic Jews or Chinese-American women.

    What amazes me, is how some people think that trashing Wilson and putting Brown on the pedestle of martyrdom somehow helps black folks.

    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.
    Murderers must hide from justice.

    When was the last time Wall Street, or Capital Hill whites knocked over a convenience store, or sold crack on a street corner?

    Lynch mobs are your version of justice?

    The Liberal reaction to this is why Liberals are so dangerous.

    So I was completely wrong in guessing his size. Perhaps it is body posture that just doesn't shout out NFL prospect.
    Immediately after the incident, Wilson was described as 6'2", 210 pounds. Since then, various media talking heads have added anywhere from 2-4" to his height, and as much as 30 pounds to his weight.

    His Wiki says 6'4" 210 pounds as of today (rather soft, pudgy pounds, if the video I've seen of him is accurate). However, Mike Brown was at least 6'6" and weighed between 290 and 310 pounds. Any way you slice it, he was going against a guy that outweighed him by nearly 100 pounds, and was strong as an ox.

    The media pulled this crap with Trayvon Martin too, a kid who was 5'10 and weighed about 140 pounds soaking wet. They blew up life-sized pictures of him in a hoodie, and claimed he was 6'2" tall by measuring to the tip of the hoodie, all to combat photos of the skinny kid on the autopsy table that looked all of 14 years old.

    I freakin' hate the MSM.
