    Should these deaths be getting the same attention as Michael Brown?

    Well..... There are a lot of deaths that get no great attention. As a matter of fact, this one is somewhat of a one in a decade exception. One thing that should be mentioned in this context is, however, that the state ie government holds great power over the citizens. That power bestowed it is a direct threat to the individual and must be very closely monitored and robustly controlled. Since someone is dead here, we had better look into it very closely and not allow even the slightest doubt about the transparency and impartiality of handling of the case.

    In all of those incidents the suspects were charged or killed. However, if the suspect was just let go because he said the officer charged him, I think they should get the same attention. I think that anytime someone, the suspect or the cop, is killed in a police officer related shooting, a complete investigation by a third party is needed.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Absolutely should be, but they won't.

    If a cop isn't safe (even a canine cop), nobody is.
