    What a ridiculous thing to say. Anyone can be overpowered by anyone. All it takes is some other underlying factor. You could slip, heck, there's a million factors that could play into someone overpowering a cop. The facts remain, that Michael Brown, attempted murderer, got exactly what he had coming to him. Easiest grand jury decision in history.

    While the grand jury agrees that the law wasn't broken, the speed of escalation and killing of a citizen without jury should alarm you. Whether you feel the correct outcome was reached, the process should be corrected to ensure better than retroactive review of killings.

    The only thing alarming is that are people so stupid that they would try and kill a police officer and expect to get out alive. Those of us with brains know not to do something like that. He must have had some kind of mental disorder. Who else would he kill? His mother?

    Stupidity shouldn't be grounds for being killed by cops.

    Stupidity isn't. Trying to murder them is. It just so happens that trying to murder cops ALSO happens to be stupid. On a much higher level of course. I can't believe you're trying to deny this.

    I am a civilian. I want protections for civilians. I expect the police to not kill civilians except under absolutely unavoidable situations. This wasn't an unavoidable situation.

    If an officer is overpowered, and his weapon turned against him, he is dead. Period. But let me get this straight, are you saying the incidents we are talking about, the officers were overpowered in your view? Come on Unrep....That was a lazy answer....I asked you two simple questions for anyone making the declarative statements you made, and come to find out through this answer here, you clearly don't have a clue, but rather just repeat talking points you hear....

    Please try again and prove me wrong....

    What part was unavoidable? The officer about to die? Because that part wasn't. Brown made sure of that. Lucky for us, the officer was prepared.

    Apparently in HUDS world, if a thug attempts to murder a cop, and gets away, he should be allowed to get away.

    If the officer was overpowered and disarmed he was improperly prepared, trained, or supported. This improper training, preparation, or support contributed to escalating a simple arrest into a death.

    The officer wasn't prepared. A prepared officer wouldn't have allowed a deadly weapon into his attacker's hands, or been limited to deadly force to deal with an escalating conflict.
