    yeah the everyone in the place is a roach is just plain stupid

    They're hardly a violent culture bro. I give you a tour of the St. Pete ghetto and you'll meet nothing but nice folk

    Then as it escalated, Brown already having shown he was violent, progressed towards the Officer. The hearsay evidence puts that progression as a charge.
    In such cases, of course use of his firearm is appropriate and justified.
    Could you explain where you go this so called evidence?

    What? If somebody shot me in the arm, I would run faster in the other direction. I would run towards the person shooting me.

    Re: Ferguson

    Wasn't he unarmed? How could he have been threatening the cop's life???

    The rioting may be but not the actual event....we have no idea what the facts are yet.

    I don't call people racists. I let their words speak for themselves. You save a lot of penalty points that way.

    Re: Ferguson

    Depends on what you were shot with, what you were wearing, how big you were and what your state of mind was including drugs in your system. Me, I would run like a little girl if even whinged by a bb gun - but thats me - i'm a lover not a fighter.
