    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.
    He shoot him once in head but the police man thought the kid was still still moving, so he shoot him twice in head ...... and than he shoot 4 times just to be sure the kid won't move.


    How in hell can it be "appropriate and justified."

    Re: Ferguson

    not saying it was or wasnt justified yet

    i dont know

    conflicting reports keep coming out

    eyewitness accounts dont match up to the forensic evidence we do know about

    eventually we will get all the facts....not conjecture....not wild ass guesses....and not hypotheses

    once we have the facts, it "should" be ascertainable on whether or not it was a good shooting

    or at least we all hope that is the case....

    or we can have another "trayvon" case where two sides continually see it differently

    and a jury needs 12/12 to convict

    If he had only shot him once with a bullet that resulted in death, would it have been justified and appropriate? Is it just that there were multiple shots that make it inappropriate and non-justified??

    Basically a meaningless datum.
    Did I need to post a sarcasm smilie? I thought the statement was snarky enough to avoid this kind of return volley.

    It's about different issues, such as lack of economic opportunity, etc.

    In lots of ways... he was a big guy and that would be enough but he could have also been going for the cops gun.

    How in hell can it be "appropriate and justified."
    Precisely. The amount of blind deference so many here are willing to give to the police is disturbing. Couple that with the war-like response of the department and it is even more disturbing.

    1.) Because what you cite isn't true.
    2.) Because it was justified in accordance with the known evidence.

    Learn the evidence.
