    Wow --

    I would love to hear the officer's version. Sometimes stories change when going from one person to the other. But if her version is accurate, then I feel for the cop.

    I will say this - my husband was a cop for 20 years, and there are certain drugs that one can be under the influence of, that make them seemingly indestructible. They can be shot over and over, and they can keep on coming.

    And probably reason to give it a good deal less weight.

    I think evidence exists that he is willing to get into a confrontation with someone and that evidence exists he is also capable of robbery. That evidence must be taken to court. That is the only way we can make a factual case either way.

    The video shows Dorian Johnson and Michael Brown robbing a carryout and Brown was killed while they were fleeing the scene of a felony. It's possible that Dorian Johnson could be charged with capital murder. So he has plenty of reason to lie. And he also conveniently left out the part about the robbery when he told his story to the media. Basically lying by omission. Furthermore, after seeing how tall Brown is, it seems to me that Johnson's version of events is physically impossible. It makes no sense.

    Therefore his credibility is non-existent IMO. He's a typical lying ******.

    What baffles my mind is that they lied KNOWING there was evidence that this guy was caught on video. I just shake my head and repeat... "really, really...... seriously".....

    The kid was murdered, simple.

    A tale that has happened too much.

    I suppose it doesn't. Choice 4 applies.

    We have to assume he was hyped up after beating a cop.

    I'm not ready to accuse either side yet though, since so few facts are verified. I think all we really know for sure is that Officer Wilson shot Michael Brown. That's all that's been confirmed.
    That is exactly my take.
