    It was never about helping anyone-its about about making those people feel better about themselves.

    I agree. No one should be necessarily vilified nor put on a pedestal in this instance. There appears to be enough wrong to go around for all to gnaw on. It is tragic event that should be taken in, analyzed and lessons drawn from it.

    You have proof that Wilson committed murder then? Feel free to do that. Funny how you call it justice to falsely imprison a man who:

    1) Faced a grand jury.

    2) Testified the grand jury.

    3) the prosecutor provided all the evidence to the public.

    4) whose primary witness AGAINST him recanted his statement.

    If you can contradict the court and find him guilty...then you have a right to call him a murderer. Until then...demanding "justice" for someone found innocent is nothing more than mob rule! What a joke.

    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.
    You are getting caught up in the issue-it does not matter how big either one was-punch a cop and wrestle for his gun and you are going to get shot.

    Indeed, which I have posted about more than once since the evidence from the grand jury was released. My specific irritation in this thread is that once again, people are exaggerating his physical size in order to minimize the fear he felt upon being charged by a guy who was, forensic evidence proved, was ten ****ing feet from reaching him when the last shots were fired.

    Nice code, you mean kill someone black. No one seems to care all that much if white thugs are killed. And black officers can kill any color strongarm robber and no riots or hubbub. Not if you're looking for racism, might want to turn a spotlight on the NO Justice, No Peace crowd, they're steeped in it.

    And that is TOO ****ing close too. Most of the armchair QBs would piss themselves if a guy Wilson's size was bum rushing them from 10 feet. Let alone brown. 300 lbs is big. By anyone's standard. College linemen big.

    No, the blame can be laid squarely with Brown. He robbed the convenience store and he assaulted a cop. Those were two crimes that no one forced him to commit.

    I remember when this began, you were that one who kept writing
