A 6'4" 240 lb man charging you could constitute and justify the use of lethal force, especially if this individual had already tried for the officer weapon.

    Now thats version of this evidence that is supposedly Wilson's account. If the evidence supports that version, than the shooting was certainly justified or at least in accordance with most use of force policies I've seen.

    Is his version the truth, don't know. Are the other versions of the altercation the truth, with the exception that he was shot multiple times in the back...don't know. Frankly, none us do. Most is just speculation based on the versions of the incident that are out there.

    Thanks for that, but I think we were talking about two different things. I was talking about the hypothetical someone posted asking what if the store owner had shot Brown, rather than Officer Wilson.

    My bad, thought it was in reference to the actual shooting.

    I think you are making claims while not knowing what all the evidence is.
    Brown had already established himself as a lethal threat to the Officer, as he was combative and had tried to take his firearm.
    Now the Officer is finale able to get out of his vehicle and orders them to stop. Instead, Brown turns around and starts coming toward the Officer.
    His threat level hadn't changed in those few seconds. He was coming towards the Officer pointing a gun at him.
    The Officer had every reason to start firing.

    Let's put this one to bed. According to the police report, the officer says that Brown as 35 feet away when he turned around and began charging. He was shot 20 feet away. That is a 15 foot window.

    Now, if Brown was bum-rushing the officer, he would begin running fast towards the officer, the officer would then determine that he was being bum rushed, he would then train his weapon on Brown and fire 8 shots (the total number of shots fired), all within the space of the amount of time it takes to run 15 feet. I can run 15 feet in about a second and a half.

    Logically, the officers story is false, as there is no way he could see that he was being bum-rushed, then train his gun on Brown, and fire off 8 shots - All that plus the reaction time - in just a couple of seconds.

    His gun was drawn so reaction time is minimal. Distances released thus far have been conflicting. Furthermore, you're basing a fifteen foot "sprint" on your capabilities. Are you nearly 300lbs? Conceivable that Brown slowed down has the shots made impact? Most with some training can get off 8 shots in 3-4 seconds.

    Unless you've seen the crime scene information in the investigation, logically...you're just assuming.

    Weren't the first gunshots close-range from INSIDE the police car while they were involved in a physical struggle? That would've been the shots to the arms/hands. The fatal ones would've come from a longer range as Mike Brown was charging the officer like a bull (head down - accounting for the gunshot to the top of the head).
