    or are you suggesting being high is an exoneration for robbery in the UK.

    Based on witness testimony, and forensic evidence, Brown removed all of them but a few. Why do you refuse to acknowledge that?

    Has a black cop ever shot a black man?


    Has a white cop ever shot a white man?

    Let's get all of the questions out here, eh?

    He was sitting in his car..(vulnerable position)..obviously he had his window open.(stupid)..and then allegedly Brown tried to grab his gun..(which would be on his hip)..

    What was he waiting for?

    Yeah, and I'm sure the addled state of "these people" would be a great comfort to the dead cop's family at his funeral.

    Good morning, Pero.

    It certainly didn't help for Holder to get personally involved by making a trip to Ferguson! WTH? With all the shootings going on around the nation on a daily basis, why did he decide to get involved there? Naturally the media is going to pick up on that, and sensationalize it! Then when the grand jury didn't bring the verdict of "guilty" that was hoped for, the rioting, looting, and burning businesses to the ground began! I'm not saying that any shooting death is better or worse than any other, but this one fed flames that could have been avoided, IMO, since this one was deliberately manipulated by the administration, and that is wrong!

    Well, since you seem intent on discussing something you know little to nothing about, the answer is, and evidence showed, he was waiting for backup. Let me add, why do you refuse to learn something about the case, and why do you ignore Browns contribution to the end result?
