    I have a feeling the caller is probably telling a accurate version of the Officer's story. I don't think her going on a talk show telling the story did the officer any favors though. Same goes for Brown's friend who gets a lot of interviews, a accomplice to a robbery isn't the best person to have vouch for you.

    No matter what there will be a civil suit by the family, imo.

    They both need better lawyers to tell them to keep their mouths shut while the investigation is ongoing.

    Exactly. The friend has a lawyer, they gave the name, I want to say it was Crump. But yeah the kid needs to shut up. I still don't understand why he hasn't been arrested after seeing the video.

    As for Josie, yeah no help there either.

    These kinds of cases usually hinge on one thing to me. With Martin it was the alley way and lack of addresses that to me did Zimmerman in (in this case the jury didn't see it my way )

    But this whole Brown thing that video from the store pretty much seals his guilt to me. He robbed a store and everyone who is protesting is like "so what!" If that store clerk had had a gun, we wouldn't be even having this conversation and Brown's life might have been 10mins shorter or better yet he might have dropped the cigars and ran out and be alive today.

    Hey Voyager!

    Yes, Crump is the ambulance chaser representing the family. Is he representing the little thief as well?

    Good point about the store owner and the gun. I wonder if the protestors would be looting and robbing and screaming so much if it was the store owner who shot him?

    A store owner doesn't have the right to shoot someone for stealing his product. Let's make that absolutely clear. Lethal force is only justified in defense of lethal force, not property. If the store owner had shot Brown this would be a much clearer case -- in favor of conviction.

    As for the friend not being arrested, that makes a lot of practical sense because can you imagine what the community -- already convinced of police corruption -- would do? That kid will never be arrested for that robbery. Which is understandable, but it doesn't set the best precedent for future incidents like this -- concoct some story of police abuse, rally an angry community behind you, and get off criminal charges! Not saying this story is concocted -- that remains to be seen -- but...you know what I mean.

    I understand what you are saying, but I think the clerk could make the claim he feared for his life after seeing that video.

    Not necessarily. It's pretty clear in the video that Brown threatened the store owner. He could claim self-defense, and a lot of people would see it that way.

    Sources within the investigation under condition of anonymity confirmed to the cable news outlets that the content of this radio call-in is consistent with Darren Wilson's official statement.

    That does not make the statement accurate, of course.

    However, according to a St. Louis newspaper reporter, there are now also "over a dozen" witnesses that have made statements to the police that back up his statement.

    There is also a cellphone video from the scene where a witness tells someone walking up and asking what happened that he saw the fight in the officer's window, saw Wilson give chase, saw Brown turn around, get shot and keep coming. There is literally no way for these two - random bystander man and wife's friend on radio show - to have independently coordinated these details.


    You want eyewitnesses, but some witness statements will invariably not align with objective evidence and some will.

    At this time, the claims that Wilson needlessly executed Brown or that Brown had surrendered are becoming increasingly dubious and less likely.
