    Re: Ferguson

    crazy people and other


    we dont know whether or not the shooting was justified yet....how could we?

    the investigation is nowhere near done

    people jumping to conclusions on both sides of the aisle.....

    lots of hypotheses, and wild ass guesses, and very few FACTS

    what we do know is that another young black man is dead at the hand of the police

    whether or not the officer made a good or bad shooting is a ways off

    but we also have an epidemic in this country

    an epidemic of young men who make really stupid decisions

    why? well....from my point of view is is a lack of parenting, and a lack of men (good role models) to follow

    bad educations....little or no job opportunities....and parents that either dont care, or are too busy trying to put food on the table to pay attention

    another 6 kids (all black) killed in chicago over the weekend....total of 32 shot

    it isnt just this one little community where this stuff is happening

    it is in every inner city community.....

    and i dont see a lot of action from the black leaders of america

    Yes, you gave extreme praise to an article with enormous gaps in the sort of information it presented by selecting only that which acted to confirm a pre-existing narritive.

    Re: Ferguson

    Well if he shot him six times when he was down you might have a point. We don't know that, and it seems unreasonable at this point.

    If a 350 pound man is coming after you, repeatedly, charging towards you even after you've yelled "Freeze" or "Stop or I will shoot," then again - what is he supposed to do? Tell me what you expect that cop to do if this guy is charging him, refusing to stop.

    Personally I think it's often just an excuse to go out and destroy stuff and 'have fun' and steal. I think it's an entertaining night out for a lot of them, getting a rush, and a lot of that self-righteous outrage is BS. Hey....it's free entertainment and exciting in their ordinary lives (like most of ours) and the chances of getting caught are slim. I think the same thing about a lot of the WTO rioting.

    He was hit 6 times. The med examiner said he was falling when some shots hit, so he wasnt standing frozen while 6 shots hit him. (They dont even do that in the movies).

    The more emotional people get and the more self-righteous, the harder it is to back down. If proven a good shoot, there will be claims of cover up, conspiracy, etc.

    You can still collapse after being hit by non-fatal bullets.


    Edit:
    So I rewound my DVR because it was just on the news here:

    Shawn Parcells, medical investigator, with diagram of shots:

    *preliminary findings*

    --shot at a distance

    --shot top down, so head shots first. "Indicates Brown was bent over at the time the shots occurred"

    --2 to head, other 4 ran down right shoulder, arm, base of thumb

    The quote is kind of scary....I'm not picturing why he'd have been bent over unless he was trying to comply with the cop's orders. That is ONLY speculation, I dont know, and med investigator said the findings are *preliminary.*

    Both citizens and cops are taught to shoot until the threat stops. Doesnt matter how many it takes, but it should end when the threat ends.

    I have no idea what the threat was in the Brown shooting yet.
