    Many protestors believe that Wilson was afraid of Brown was due to Brown's skin color.

    Wilson described Brown as the stereotypical, brutish, violent, animalistic, black thug. The grand jury believed it was reasonable for Wilson to defend himself from the big, brutish, thuggish, aggressive African American teenager.

    Yeah, the fact that he was a suspect in a strongarm robbery, his behavior during that robbery and his size in comparison with the officer are facts that seem to have escaped the idiot protesters whom we all should hope are not procreating - we don't need more idiots.

    Can you link to the page in the GJ testimony that was released where Wilson described Brown as the "stereotypical, brutish, violent, animalistic, black thug" please?

    And yet every department has internal affairs officers whose entire job is to not honor the Blue Wall.

    There is evidence of the Ferguson police doing that? ANd how does the Ferguson police in ANY way counter the forensic evidence and autopsy conducted by the family attorney which proves Browns friend and others are without a doubt lying.

    Why is it that when caught defending a lie cant people just admit..."huh...that was probably a rushed judgment and I am backing the wrooooooong horse." ?

    They were roughly the same height, brown was just 90 pounds heavier.

    And at the time of their encounter Wilson did not know for certain if brown was the actual culprit, only a suspect.

    Wilson ran into Brown just after clearing a health and wellness check on a black infant. While some people might believe that Wilson was afraid of black people I'd suggest that an alternate possibility (and a much more reasonable one) is that he was afraid of getting knocked out.

    What is being protested is the justice system being rigged in favor of the cop, who told a story that turned a delinquent guilty of petty theft into some sort of beast. Wilson says that he heard brown was grunting like some aggressive animal. That sort of description paints the picture of events unfairly.
    How is it rigged?
