    Wilson Leaves Lawn Half Mowed

    Wilson left lawn half mowed, went into hiding


    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.

    It does seem that the media in the US gets away with subtly inciting violence. Perhaps one day a brave prosecutor will take up your challenge.

    It'll never happen.

    If someone hunted Wilson down and killed him that would just be another week of 24/7 viewership. The media would LOVE that.

    I don't know if anyone has brought this up in the many threads about Ferguson but Wilson has to be one of the most non-intimidating cops I have seen in sometime.
    Don't mean to be a Monday quarterback but I wonder if this situation could have been diverted without killing the guy. But I have this was partly due to a big guy feeling more powerful than a sheepish looking cop.
    Not saying that a cop needs to look like Hulk Hogan but just wonder if this made the perp feel more bullet proof.
    Just my two cents.

    I may be mistaken, but I believe I read somewhere that Wilson is 6'3 and 220lbs. That's not a small, sheepish man. However, compared to Brown who's taller and 70 plus pounds heavier, he may look small. Brown didn't get a reputation as a bully and as a guy who took what he wanted by being intimidated by anyone smaller than him and there aren't too many bigger. What you may be seeing is Wilson's demeanor, which is not that of the hard nosed racist cop that the media and others have tried to portray him as.

    Now that you mention it, he does kind of remind me of Barney Fife.

    This is what the left wants-mob justice. Facts be damned.

    Perhaps the black community in Ferguson feels that is what they have been experiencing in the form of an institutionalized mob. Who knows. Maybe it will cause cops to think twice before they kill someone whether their authority to use deadly force is worth the price of not trying a different approach.

    In a situation such as Wilson's, you don't stop to think twice.

    I sure didn't think Wilson was that big. So much for my future use to police in describing a suspect. I looked up his height and weight and found other source to say he is 6'4" 210 pounds.

    So I was completely wrong in guessing his size. Perhaps it is body posture that just doesn't shout out NFL prospect.
