Actually, conservy, several witnesses said Wilson was shooting at Brown as he was running away. Even two construction workers, at least one was white, said the same thing. That's where the original belief came that he was shot in the back. And there's actually a video of one of the workers shouting to the effect don't you see he has his hands up?! So don't know where you're gettin' your faux, oops! Info from. Never mind. That explains it.
timbo, in white neighborhoods they just murder their parents and siblings, or jr. gets to overdose in the parents basement with parental consent and knowledge.
All Police Involved Shootings Are Investigated As "Assault On Law Enforcement" In Ferguson Grand Jury
Is this the case anywhere in the america where police shoots a citizen? How did america allow such a field with a history of corruption and brutality to gain so much power?

Actually, you haven't lived until you have a cop or cops harassing, threatenng and stalking you for speaking up and out against their brute tactics.
As for Kris Rock on hiw NOT to get the sht beat out of you by a cop with issues*. That may sound logical on stage during a comedy act, but it's not reality.
This is though:
Actually, tifosi, not only have I had experiences, good, bad and horrible with police. I also have family members, both black and white, who serve and have served in the field. So it's very doubtful you've had more experience than I. ;)
I just call the shots the way they are. Truth may sometimes hurt, but at least at some point it brings about change. Denial, however, only guarantee the same will continue until we're all consumed and destroyed by it.
P. S. Mine and my family's military service to this country dates way back in some capacity or another.
zeeby said: there's nothing to indicate Wilson is a slime ball.
Except he was once a part of an agency who was totally disbanded due to corruption and abuse of its citizens before being hired at Ferguson's police dept. In fact, many of the Ferguson cops have a disturbing history at former agencies who couldn't fire them even if they wanted to because they wouldn't or couldnt take on their police unions.
Actually it's people like me who care. Who speak up and out when we see the nation heading down a tragic path once again. Like the child with the drug addicted or alcoholic parent who fights for the survival of that parent before they're consumed and destroyed. All the while the rest of you keep supplying them with all the drugs and alcohol they want, pretending to be their friend.
Yeah! jackzun ! Whatever it takes. Keep on investigating until this country get its sh/it! together! Either that or stop lying and sending its citizens off to fight and die in other countries on the pretense those countries are too corrupt and brutal to goven their citizens to be in power or so all Americans can live freely without worry of persecution and oppression. Otherwise, the nation is the highest of hypocrisy and sickness.
I agree with cactus. Police in america seem to have this macho/ego complex. Where they think bullying and badgering citizens somehow makes them more manly. There's also a swaggering cockiness to their attitude coupled with a sense of insecurity. Far too many are allowed to join and the dept. is well aware they come with a lot of personal and psychological baggage that would make most unfit to serve in such a powerful capacity as police work.
I disagree with agentx, because this is a continuation of all those things having taken place in the past. Therefore, it's not even the past when the same thing keeps happening over and over. What happened 100 years ago, and as late as 1940s Chattanooga, some have said, very much has relevance and impact today. In fact there's another story of a possible lynching of a young black football player in north Carolina who was dating an older white woman that didnt go over well with her ex. But they're trying to label it a suicide. His name was Lennon Lacey . He was 17 years old and a h'school football player.
Another thing for MR. Cook to ponder: I find it strange that most all these rumors of black men raping a white woman where MIBs formed and a lynching and burning down of homes always followed, the allege victim's name was almost always Nevada something or the other? Even the false allegation of rape that lead to the massacre of blacks in Rosewood Florida, a prosperous black community, that woman was also named Nevada. Either the name Nevada was an extremely popular name back then or something more hideous and sinister was taking place and "Nevada" was a code name for something else or an excuse to cause an uprising.
There is no more rampant violence and gang activity in the black neighbourhood than in many white ones. The purpose for manufacturing both and selling it, even to the black neighborhood, was to justify bringing gentrification to many of those community. It was a way to force out the poor and bring in higher property tax paying homeowners.
I've lived in a very racially mixed community for near over half a century, and the first order throughout the years when police teamed up with a few neighborhood residences who labeled themselves community leaders was to drive a wedge between black/white and class. The cops and some of those 'heads were too dumb to realize just how racially diverse the community had become. That when they jerked up that young black male or told him "you dont look like you belong here " they were pissing off his white grandparents, uncles-aunties, sisters, brothers and other relatives and friends.
