    Well, they are sworn in and generally more believable than thugs.

    No, it isn't. The police cannot kill all free speech to stop a few looters. Say there is a terrorist in times square. To stop the terrorist, would it be acceptable to kill all of the people in times square to kill the terrorist? No. Just because the cause for action is legitimate, does not mean the course of action is.
    Nothing you said changes anything I said.

    And as for your scenario?
    If that terrorist had a nuclear device that would kill thousands more, then yes, killing the hundreds in the square just to kill the terrorist would be justifiable.

    But you scenario was absurd in comparison to gas and rubber bullets (non-lethal force) to stop rioting, looting, and damage.

    It may indeed change over the course of investigation, new eyewitness reports, or in court.



    So, dont forget......always make sure your evidence is KNOWN! lol
    You are speaking nonsense as it is fact.
    He fought with the Officer and caused damage to the Officer. Etc...

    All you are doing is showing that you do not know what the evidence is.

    Agree with that but they are also known to twist the truth as well. Many, including I, have witnessed this first hand.

    All of it. From the cohorts account establishing a confrontation and a struggle over the gun and discharge of it, to the anonymous eyewitness saying he was all up on the vehicle, to the Chief revealing same struggle and discharge and the Officer suffered facial injuries that required hospitalization. All of it ...

    As for more evidence ...
    Please listen to the following and tell me if he is saying that the discharge injured Brown, or it injured the Officer?

    Who are we supposed to believe - a sworn-in officer of the law, or a thug who just robbed a store, and saw his friend gunned down by "the man?"
