    His testimony indicated that he was trying to buy time while waiting for backup.

    Brown ruined that quickly.

    You obviously know little. People are more resilient than you think. There are cases of large guys taking shotgun blasts (buckshot) to the body and they lived. 9mm slugs to the cheat and walked around like nothing happened.

    Ferguson officer who shot Michael Brown resigns
    ... his 15 minutes of fame has just begun.... he will be fine. Moreover, he is alive... if his life were truly in danger (which was probably more his perception than reality), then he is better off today than he could have been on the "fateful day"....

    Only doing his job? Wilson may have been within rights, but Michael Brown's death most likely would have been prevented by a competent cop. We never get to know the answer to that, since there was no trial.

    Sorry, Wilson was no saint in this. It was time for him to move on. Good riddance. He can now enjoy is $500,000 "defense fund"

    Fine? He's already had $400,000 sent by angry white men, no doubt they'll be sending more now he's resigned!

    His career was ruined when he decided to shoot an unarmed teenager.

    You sure that is all that happened? Why is Brown totally off the hook for his actions?

    Brown is dead! How much more "on the hook" do you want?

    Now we are dealing with the incompetent cop that either escalated the situation and/or did not know how to diffuse it such that an unarmed man was killed.

    Oh, I would, if he wasn't dead.

    Don't need to. I don't have any problems with my neighbors. My neighborhood is peaceful, and it's mostly Hispanic.
