    Police have to be allowed a wide margin of discernment on whether a suspect is posing a threat. Unfortunately, one of the most dangerous things you can do is confront the police with violent behavior. They're the only thing that separates us from a society ruled by criminals.

    That said, whether or not Michael Brown deserved to be shot or not is up to a D.A. to bring charges and court system to judge, not a mob and court of public opinion. I do believe a national review on how police confront civilians, particularly minorities, and especially with deadly force could be discussed.

    For me the "pulling Brown into the vehicle" sounds strange. Why would a cop do that?

    Just like other people 'happen to be white' I guess.

    Good question.

    Maybe the cop who did it has a good answer.

    They do get to chose how they live their life though. Choices have consequences.

    There are a dozen other witnesses that corroborate what the cop said happens.

    If and when this case goes to trial we'll see who gets believed.

    It's not unusual for witnesses to only see part of the incident or to interpret it differently than what actually happened. That isn't a black/white thing. It's a human thing.

    Personally, I have a VERY hard time believing that a cop shot someone he believed was in the process of surrendering.

    Don't worry about people ragging on you for your poll and the way you phrased it.

    As for your poll, it's impossible to know if the officer was justified in his actions since we've yet to hear from the officer himself what he did and why he did it. I have confidence that we'll see that information in due time and we can then have some ability to weigh the two sides of the discussion and come to our own conclusions.
