    But I do think that this has probably put Officer Wilson in some hot water with his bosses, and it surely doesn't help him.
    I wondered that too.

    Interesting you use the word "testimony"

    Nobody has actually given testimony yet. However, it seems many of you are willing to believe the friends of the store robbing hoodlum's side of the story, which is not testimony either.

    Which is exactly why I don't believe the "witnesses" who also may want to get a certain point of view across, considering one of them was there with "Big Mike" and the others are members of that community..... who I am sure aren't unhappy with all the commotion.

    The 'eyewitness testimony' cited in this thread should be conclusive. According to the guy that says he was there, the officer fired from inside the car, hit him in the head, and then when Brown was on his knees with his hands up, the officer shot him 4-5 more times at point blank range. In the back.

    If ballistics show that it should be obvious. If not...'eyewitness testimony' wont mean **** in this case.

    How do you get shot in the head, and then you still have the ability to be on your knees with your hands up for long enough for someone to walk around to your back side and shoot you in the back 4-5 times?

    Yep. We don't know who is lying or "improving the truth" or has some sort of agenda. It's best to wait until all the evidence comes out before drawing conclusions. Same thing happened with the Trayvon Martin case. I thought Zimmerman was guilty as hell until it came out that Zimmerman had injuries.

    Agreed. Seems as if there is always a rush to judgment. Peril of the "information age" (and the all-too-human temptation to find the facts that suit one's personal view and stop right there).
