    Care to share your credible evidence for the "hands up, don't shoot" side with us?

    Not to mention of course that it was two against one in the beginning.

    Then why did Wilson not shoot the other guy?

    Brown was 6'4 290 pounds. Wilson is 6'4 210 pounds. 90 pounds is a huge difference. This of course has nothing to do with the FACT that he tried to take the officer's weapon.

    A violent thug fresh off of a robbery was shot to death by a police officer who was simply defending himself in the line of duty. Due to the absurd and politically motivated outrage which followed the event, that police officer has now lost his career, in addition to having to live in fear for his life from racist hate groups who have placed a bounty on his head.

    Quite frankly, I think he deserves more money.

    He ran and hid behind a car, he didn't charge the officer. Are you ever going to read the evidence?

    He could still shoot him. Maybe he is waiting for the right time. Because his first shooting seems premeditated. Am I right?

    The cop took a life, that is somthing that cannot be taken lightly.

    The other guy came to his senses and did not continue to attack the officer would be my best guess. Some folks realize that attacking an armed officer once he is outside of his car is not the brightest of ideas.

    A common street thug charged a police officer, and tried to forcibly take his firearm away, almost certainly with the intention of shooting said police officer with his own weapon.

    That cannot be taken lightly.

    There was ultimately no evidence whatsoever to suggest that Officer Wilson's actions were anything less than self-defense, and so he was deemed to be guilty of no wrong-doing by a grand jury of his peers.

    In light of that decision, a racist hate group has called for Officer Wilson's murder, and even offered a cash reward to anyone willing to do the deed.

    That also cannot be taken lightly.
