    The other thing that's just like Trayvon is that outrage against the cops, accusing them of coverups and murder, requires no evidence of systemic abuse. The possibility that, even if it was a bad shooting, the event could be a "one off" doesn't fit the storyline.

    If the suspect continues to charge, the officer will continue to shoot.

    Most of the shots were not life threatening and with adrenalin pumping in the suspect, it is viable that he kept coming.

    It looks like his skin color really isn't all that much a negative when it comes with such license to engage in this sort of behavior.

    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."
    He was shot twice in the head, who says they were both fatal? The top of head shot was considered deadly, but the other one could've been in a different order.

    Yes there are.

    Yes I saw that. I see no exit wounds on the back of his body at all.

    Please point them out. Thanks

    I never said the shoot wasn't justified, only questionable. I guess you have all the facts beyond a doubt?

    Lew is a non entity in Missouri. He was before the incident. He will be after the incident. He will have lots of company.

    I do not have all the facts, but I certainly listed one conspicuously absent from the one-sided piece you selected to represent your views.

    Read the top of the diagram where it says, "reentry and exit perforations", then count the holes up front, there are 8. The exits came out the front, because his head was bent forward.

    I simply commented on an op-ed piece that I thought was well written and pointed to a bigger picture, instead of a singular event as causing the protests and riots. If you have a better narrative feel free to elaborate.
