    Where'd you get that from, let me guess, TV right? Most of my family are cops of one sort or the other. None in the big cities mind you and all out in the West, but not really a thing out here. Maybe LA, or so the TV shows say. Don't know, don't know any LA cops.

    Where is the backpeddling?
    That you do not accept that you have no idea how many shots were necessary to stop any (alleged) threat by Brown and even so, still declare they were unecessary force.

    And if Brown kept (allegedly) charging after the first bullet hit? How about after the 2nd? The third? Forth? Fifth?

    Cat Stevens is white and he changed his name to "Yusuf Islam", but I still call him Cat Stevens. Am I a racist?

    He really did. Not kidding. Yes, I also call Artest "Artest". I'd call him that anyway since he only did this a few years back, but I refuse to call him "Metta World Peace" anyway just based on the fact that it's a stupid name.

    It's why they have an internal affairs division, not that it does any good. Any cop who refused to lie for his partner would be ostracized and soon either dead or out of a job. Especially in a situation like this.

    Does it matter? You can always call her one when you can't otherwise make a cogent argument, you've demonstrated that ability.
