Yes, it's more believable after seeing the video
No, it's not more believable that he attacked the cop unprovoked
I think the cop shot him out of anger
I think the cop feared for his life and that's why he shot him
I voted on the thread title, "Do you think MB was capable of being violent?" because we've seen evidence (in the video) that he was.
The poll title is something different (was he capable of attacking the cop?) and I dont know but the video supports a possibility rather than leaving me neutral.
I voted Yes based on the thread title.
How on Earth could I possibly know if Michael Brown was violent or not?
How can anyone that did not know him at least somewhat?
I wish people, in cases like this, would wait to pass judgement on ANY OF IT until all the facts are in.
It is a cliche but there are (at least) two sides to every story.
'What kind of sick and twisted toy factory is this?'
'We are all the sum of our tears. Too little and the ground is not fertile, and nothing can grow there. Too much, the best of us is washed away.'

Anybody short of a quadriplegic is capable of attacking a cop or can be violent towards others. What a weird poll question.Poll: Do you feel that Michael was capable of attacking the cop?
Here's a suggestion. If you don't like the poll, or think it's wrong to discuss things without all the facts(which is about half the threads on this entire forum) then don't respond. God forbid a poll is created around recent events!
darrell wilson shoots dead Michael Brown who is fleeing from him. And unfortunately for him, there are witnesses and word gets out.
Cops in police dept. are in a frenzy--have to come w/up a story fast to justify the cops' actions, and decide to make a phony video of a robbery, paying the convenience store clerk/manager a large sum of $$ to film it there. Cops make the video, then decide to say that the wilson was trying to capture a robber--Michael Wilson--fleeing the crime.
However, the evidence doesn't hold up that wilson could've known about the robbery at the time, and so cops are left to say that wilson didn't know about the robbery but that it happened anyway. Cops then go to Brown's friend, Johnson, and coerce him into saying that he helped rob the store in exchange for not charging him w/another crime and letting him walk free.
