Landgrabbr, there's no comparison, though tragic it is the young woman lost her life in such a way. Maybe tfp will write an opinion on domestic violence or something.
A retired chief of police once said some years ago:
Plus, al, Wilson was allowed to leave the scene without any medical attention or processing of his vehicle. And according to the way it's said he called the report in to dispatch he didn't even report it as if he'd just been involved in a shooting or altercation that left injuries. Normally, any injuries to a cop and ems are sent ton the scene to attend to the cop.
fairmon, actually, alcohol is more of a gateway drug than anything. People who drink alcohol regularly are far more likely to use such drugs as cocaine, heroin, LSD etc.
7:22 pm alprova said: pot alone does not cause someone to become aggressive.
So true, al. And from all witness reports it appears Wilson was the aggressor and hot head that escalated the situation. Witnesses reporting him cursing, get the f&%k out of the street. Reminds me of a few local hot-heads over the years that seemed hyped up on steroids and who knows what else.
And even the toxicology reports of Brown possibly having mary j. in his system could be mistaken, Did you know toxicology reports on Joan bona(sp) Ramsey originally indicated the same make-up for mj in her system? That certain foods, even broccoli and pineapples can give false positives for certain drugs as mj? The one who should have been tested for drugs is Darren Wilson, and it's not too late to test him for certain drugs that can linger in the system for days and weeks.
Well, sports fans, gotta get back to my boots on the ground news in Ferguson. See ya. later!!
zabbler, you've runner that "hamas calling for the death of Jews" mantra in the ground. Give it up! There's a difference between Israelis and Jews. But in your limited space, you wouldn't know that.
Now, stay on topic or shut up! You're sounding like an irritating irrational loon pretending to know when you don't know what the he/ll you're talking about!
btw-zab, speaking on Brown possibly having pot inhus system, did you ever consider that Wilson could have been high, stoned or intoxicated? But he was allowed to leave the scene without question and without having his SU
Voroessed for evidence? Which greatly contaminated evidence? Do you realize drugs, alcohol and other substance abuse in law enforcement are an epidemic? Was Wilson allowed to go home and sleep it off? no one will ever know now, will they?
alprova, you're right. There is no evidence Brown struggled with Wilson or reached for his weapon. That's an old well worn cop tale used by cops across the nation when they've shot or killed someone under questionable and suspicious circumstances.
According to several eyewitnesses, Wilson grabbed Brown by the shirt, yanking Brown towards him and placing his hands around Browns neck, seemingly choking him. Al of this is said to have taken place with wilson still inside his police S.UV and Brown outside.
Experts say it would have been near impossible for Brown to reach for wilsons gun as he describes. If there was any struggling on Browns part it was likely an attempt to break away from being choked. A normal human reaction.
It may prove interesting if some savvy investigative reporter took a trip to Jennings mo . and investigate why Wilson either resigned, quit or was quietly let go after serving only two years on the Jennings police force. There may be a connection there that could explain why he reacted as he did in the Brown killing.
zabbler, you don't even know what anti-semitism is. You've never heard me make any statement that the Holocaust never happened. In fact, its happened more often than admitted, and even at the hands of our own country. However, the holocaust is no excuse for Israel or any nation to perform another holocaust against another ethnic or racial group of people. You're ignorance of world history is pathetic and embarrasing.
By the way: Never Again Anywhere was actually wrtitten by a holocaust survivor in criticism of israel' s policies against the Palestinian people.
Make sure your brain is loaded before shooting off at the mouth ;)
