    So what you are saying is that your current delusions are preventing you from entering into coherent discussion?

    If not, then please address the reply to you in post #77.

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?
    Start @ 01:30
    That account doesn't indicate that either were hurt with the initial shot...

    Really? Wow?
    So you don' think bleeding indicated being hurt, or the fact that he says "he was shot", means no one was hurt?
    I asked you a serious question and you reply with more delusions. Figures.

    I didn't hear the kid say that anybody was shot with the first shot because it was noisy outside my office, just chill with the moronic insults because it makes you sound like a tool... the guy also ins't clear because he is talking about his girlfriend and then she isn't mentioned again, just that there was a shot, somebody was hit and there was blood and then they ran, then there were more shots and Brown was giving up, was executed and the kid ran again.

Cities could make it work by selling the public on the department's desire to be "racially sensitive" or some-such crap like that.

    What white cop wouldn't think twice in certain confrontations with blacks in black neighborhoods? Or white neighborhoods, for that matter? Who'd life wouldn't flash before their eyes? Horrible publicity. Personal threats to himself and his family. Being hounded by the media. Being burned in effigy in the middle of the street. Who would want to risk that?

    I can picture a lot of cops saying simply, "Today's your lucky day. GTF outa' here."
    I may be wrong on the numbers but I understand the community is around 65% black and 35% white and the police force is just the opposite at 65% white and 35% black. A person was interviewed that lives and works in one of the departments and he said the reason the ratio is so lopsided is because only a few blacks want to go through the training and be a police officer.

    Not my problem that you didn't pay more attention.

    You get in return that which you put out.
    If you don't like it, stop putting your toolish behavior out there.
    When you stop none can be returned.

    The question was simple. Who was he talking about?
    Simply saying you don't know is fine.
    And no, he said nothing about any girlfriend in what I asked you to listen.

    at 3 seconds he says what sounds like "girlfriend" and at 1:32 seconds he says "we looked at him". Who is the "we" that is looking at Brown?

    And what is the point of your questions?

    Stop acting like a tool and I will stop treating you like one... start now, thanks.

    This is you. Listen to your own advice.
    Stop acting like one and you wont get it in return.
    Just stop. It is that simple.

    This is so odd. Especially as you quoted what I said.

    I previously said start @01:30, that is what I asked you to listen to.
    Not anything else.

    Where do you get the idea he is looking at Brown?
    When you are with someone, a "we" usually refers to you and the person you are with.
    So wouldn't that "we" be that they were looking at the Officer?
    Yeah, I am pretty sure you understand that.

    Just pointing out the evidence and how some may not understand it.
    If he is referring to the Officer being shot in the vehicle, it sheds a little more light on what happened.

    That's funny. You just quoted me telling you to stop yet you didn't...
    Like I said, stop acting like a tool and I will stop treating you like one.

    Talking about how some may not understand the evidence... you presented evidence and I wanted to understand the totality of it, not just what you dictate me to watch. Yours is a simple lawyer trick that fails.

    Where do you get the idea he is looking at Brown?
    When you are with someone, a "we" usually refers to you and the person you are with.
    So wouldn't that "we" be that they were looking at the Officer?
    Yeah, I am pretty sure you understand that.
    You are right. I mis-heard/didn't understand the context of what the kid was saying. It sounds like he is indicating that the cop is the one bleeding/shot.

    Just pointing out the evidence and how some may not understand it.
    If he is referring to the Officer being shot in the vehicle, it sheds a little more light on what happened.
    Absolutely... the cop pulls the gun, a struggle with Brown, the gun discharges, the officer is bloody? Was the officer wounded because I have not heard that one...
