They will not clamor for personal responsibility and real growth, real hope, and real change. Ferguson is a pimple.
    His name is not 'Lew Alcindor'. It's Kareem Abdul Jabbar. You belittle yourself in your attempt to belittle him.

    PS It's not Cassius Clay, either. Just in case you were wondering. It's Muhammad Ali.

    Thank you for sparing us.

    Really, I thought I heard that from the officer giving the press conference.

    I hope a lot of them do, Tres. They clearly don't have a clue how to do their jobs. Maybe the next group they get in will include a number of African Americans (gasp!) and that they can do their jobs without dressing and arming themselves like Seal Team Six.

    Getting shot and fleeing, then suddenly stopping and turning around to face the shooter isn't sensible for most anyone, unless he was on PCP, or afraid of getting shot again.

    He may have dropped his arms after the gun fire started or got a head shot first.

    The head shot was the only fatal shot which means he would have gone down after that shot. How would he have received the other shots then?

    Which head shot? There were two. And not all fatal shots are instantaneous.

    I don't know which one was the fatal shot. Was there an eye shot? It is hard to tell on the drawing.

    So the police officer shoots him in the head, he dies, and then the officer shoots him 5 more times? I don't think so--and if that were the case, that would be just as unacceptable.

    But the NYT article tells a different story:

    "One of the bullets entered the top of Mr. Brown’s skull, suggesting his head was bent forward when it struck him and caused a fatal injury, according to Dr. Michael M. Baden, the former chief medical examiner for the City of New York, who flew to Missouri on Sunday at the family’s request to conduct the separate autopsy. It was likely the last of bullets to hit him, he said."
