    Personally, I have a VERY hard time believing that a cop shot someone he believed was in the process of surrendering.
    Now they're saying that Officer Darren Wilson suffered an “Orbital Blowout Fracture to the Eye Socket” during the Mike Brown attack.

    That's a pretty vicious attack.

    Hard to tell at this point, even if Brown rushed the officer he may have been able to get him under control with a swift blow from a nightstick. Then again if someone is charging and you have a loaded gun, there is a possibility that the assailant may get possession of the weapon and use it. Sometimes these cops are put in a no win situation...

    it makes NO sense to me

    and my belief is the the OP wants to make this all about race....

    i dont believe that is true....but hopefully once the investigation is over, we will know for sure

    One had good reason to lie (he was an accomplice in a strong arm robbery) and looked coached from the very first. The other two tell the exact same story in such a way that it tells their story is rehearsed as well. Do I think they are lying, yes. Do I think they are lying about everything? Don't know yet. More evidence, we're not likely to see for months, is needed.

    On the ground in Ferguson I'm sure this is about perspective, and perception and not truth. Many in that community see a black teen from an oppressed group shot by a white authoritarian cop, it doesn't matter why. Outsiders assume a cop is not overtly a racist murderer, therefore the "why" matters. So far the Mike Brown's case is looking as if there may be a reason this happened, and it probably wasn't racism, oppression, authoritarianism, or any thing other than a cop being forced to make a deadly force decision (right or wrongly decided) by Mike Browns actions.

    I figured that out early on. To keep him from running, his buddy Johnson had already taken off, so he grabbed Brown. At this point he knew they were strong arm robbery suspects.

    I do not know.I wasn't there. As far as I know all three of those witnesses are friends an or accomplices of the alleged victim.


    Its crap like this why all police and police vehicles should be require by law to have cameras.This has the benefit of protecting the cops should anyone falsely accuse the police doing something wrong and this will protect people from police abuse.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
