ENOUGH ALREADY!The "teen" was shot because he thought he was
getting busted for the assault he committed a few minutes earlier - when the
police officer had no idea he even committed the crime. The teen was reacting
that way to get away, so he wouldn't be caught for the assault.I wanna know when I can go looting (I mean peaceful protesting)...

Does the family attorney think we will believe that the policeman drove by and
pulled this man into the car so he could shoot him in the face?
If the 6'4" adult pushed him into his car, and tried to wrestle the gun
from him, he was probably shot in the arm several times. Right handed, right
arm. It would also explain the shot that hit in the top of the head, being below
someone, and firing, causes the aim to be a little high. I have great skepticism
over his lawyer and their own autopsy. Just as great as the loss of
life, is the inability for Black leaders to calm the masses, and organize the
voters to oust the people they don't like, instead of robbing and looting.
I reserve judgment until the facts are released. It's to bad
others do not see it that was. This is like the Traynor Martin shooting before
the 2012 election. The media used pictures of him when he was 13 years old.
Since when does 2 wrongs make a right.
The officer involved in this incident had no previous racial incidents or any
other kind of negative report on his record. As such, it's highly unlikely
he would've just pulled over 2 Black guys and shot one for no good reason.
That would make no sense whatsoever and go completely against his proven
character. Since the Black 18 year old (an adult) had previously
just committed felony assault and robbery, he would've been very leery of
any policemen when this officer approached him. As such, the law agency's
account makes total sense about this guy pushing the officer back into his car
when he tried to get out and him trying to take the officer's gun away from
him. When anyone is fighting over a gun, someone is bound to get
shot. And if a policeman is involved, it's usually the perpetrator. Also notable is that police are trained to shoot to kill, not just wound
suspects. A wounded person can be even more dangerous than before he got
wounded. Therefore, it also makes sense that the officer would've shot this
much bigger (6'4" 245 lb) guy multiple times in order to completely
@ george of the jungle:Two wrongs never make a right. Like so
many others, you are jumping to conclusions while an investigation is still
underway.There is conclusive video evidence of only one wrong being
done... the store robbery and assault on the store owner and completely caught
on surveillance video. The other "wrong" you are alluding to is
still under intense investigation and may prove to not be a wrong at all. Only
time and complete investigative evidence will tell. Hold off on your two-wrongs
saying until then.
I'm glad they released the video of the kid stealing which shed some light
on who this kid really was. The family and media only want to focus on the
shooting and want us to forget about any wrongs the kid did leading up to the
Objectivity, rationality, truth are not a part of this protest. Looting under a
pretense of an excuse is what this is about.
well the main stream media already said his hands were up and he was down on his
knees pleading with the officer not to shoot ....so it must be true...right??
Never mind the fact that the investigation is still on-going....that
doesn't stop Barack and the Reverend Al and MSNBC and CNN however...
most police do wait until you hold your hands up and plead for your life before
they blast you in the head....right? Geez-I am so sick of the hear-say about
this tragedy. Let's just keep quiet until the investigation is complete and
that includes the president. It may be that both the boy and the police were at
fault here but police don't shoot people unless they are fearing for their
life. The kid was a criminal robbing a store and then threatening the store
attendent and now we know he fought with the police. The police still may have
had the opportunity to wound him but instead paniced and killed him in which
case the police will have to pay the price. Let's just wait and see and
not make things worse by guessing.
Never looks good when a cop shoots a teenager. Looks even worse if the teenager
How many shots did Michael Brown fire at the officer?
Update:Latest autopsy reports indicate Brown's hands were NOT
up when shot. There was nothing to indicate anything like an execution style
shooting like one story that keeps circulating and as told by Brown's
friend. They also found marijuana in his system as well. In fact, a newly
released (to the media) You-Tube video that was being made by a couple of Black
guys has them commenting about the incident as it was happening.In
that video, they describe the scuffle taking place in the police vehicle where a
shot was fired, and then afterward outside of the vehicle. Michael Brown at
first started running away. The officer got up and told them (Brown and his
friend) to stop. They did. Then Brown started saying something to the officer
just before charging him. The video guys said they thought the officer was
missing him since he kept coming. He finally dropped when shot in the head just
before reaching the officer. This all collaborates the official police report.
And if true, as it now appears to be, all the looting and rioting
are based on a false premise and narrative.
It appears the accounts of the two "witnesses" to Brown's killing,
Dorian Johnson (Brown's accomplice to the robbery at the convenience store)
and Tiffany Mitchell (a neighbor), are not squaring with the autopsy report.
The two autopsy reports both concluded that the 6 shots all hit Michael Brown in
the FRONT of his body: 4 shots to his right arm, and two to his head.In particular, Tiffany Mitchell indicated that when Brown broke free from his
struggle with officer Wilson through the window of the cruiser, he began running
away from Officer Wilson. She indicated that Officer Wilson pursued Brown,
firing shots at him. She said Brown's body jerked like he'd been
shot. Okay, if we're to believe Ms. Mitchell, Brown should've
received wounds to his back. Once again, there were no bullet wounds to his
back…only to the front of his body. Facts a stubborn things.
This incident, is an excuse for building tension, and our leaders are fueling
it.Gives them more power, and control over over a divided society.
Statistics (from the FBI) show that "Blacks" are shot by "White"
police officers at a rate five times higher than the rate that "Whites"
are shot by "White" police officers.Unless the incidence of
criminality by "Blacks" is five times higher than it is for
"Whites" this would indicate a propensity for "White" police
officers to shoot "Blacks" and not shoot "Whites", and if that
is the case then it should be looked into to determine the cause.IF
the incidence of criminality by "Blacks" is five times higher than it is
for "Whites" then that is a completely different matter which also
should be looked into to determine the cause.
INTELLECTUAL said:"Never looks good when a cop shoots a
teenager. Looks even worse if the teenager was unarmed."=====It also never looks good when the media tries to portray a strong-arm
robbing thug as an innocent, college bound child, while at the same time,
smearing an officer with a stellar career with no history of racism. The media
did the exact same thing with Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman.The fact is, if white cops killing black men were an epidemic as the Black
Community, Al Sharpton and the Liberal media want to portray, it would not be
the circus atmosphere that it currently is. The fact is, Black on Black crime
is staggering, while white on black crime, and white police violence against
blacks is monumentally low. But once again, facts do not matter. The Democrats
need a good distraction and voter turnout issue. BTW, did you
hear…the Democrats are setting up voter registration booths right near
where Michael Brown was killed? The Democrats never let a crisis go to waste.
The facts do not matter.
I can't help but wonder what happens when a black cop shoots and kills a
white teenage male under the same circumstances as this incident? Should whites
go out and loot stores? Overturn cars? Burn down buildings? Will the president
and AG Holder get involved? There is a black minister that has spoken out about
this type of activity from the black community and so called black leaders.
another barry distraction from the scandals that plague this administration.
@ The Universal Curmudgeon...The incidence of criminality by Blacks
is indeed multiple times greater per capita as it is for Whites or any other
race. There are debatable reasons for that, but it's nevertheless a fact.
Blacks also kill other Blacks at much higher rates than any other segment of
American society. That wasn't the case before President Johnson
introduced his great social reforms back in the 1960's that included all
kinds of entitlements which ultimately made Blacks feel that they needed
government help and assistance to survive. Negative Black personal and family
statistics have been growing ever since. Even though Blacks make up just 13% of
the American population, over 40% of all convicted felons are Black. 73% of
Black babies are now born out of wedlock . Those stats have been correlated to
the breakdown of the family unit and the positive support that individuals
should be receiving from families, but often don't.BTW: There
has never been a single incident of a White police officer ever shooting a Black
person in the entire history of Gunderson, Missouri. Yet the rioters make it
seem like it's a big, ongoing issue. False!
Oops. Wrong city used in my previous comment. It was meant to read Ferguson
instead of Gunderson, Missouri in the last paragraph. My bad.
"How many shots did Michael Brown fire at the officer?"Why
does it matter?More people were killed last year with hands and
fists than with rifles. "CSI" makes people expect too much
from autopsies, as far as what they can prove or disprove. The fact is that the
bullet placement can tell us very little about where the guy's hands were.
Since most police firearms training (all firearms training, actually) is to aim
for the center of the target's mass, the most likely scenario is that the
arms were near center-mass -- that is, somewhere near Brown's chest. Not
"Unless the incidence of criminality by "Blacks" is five times
higher than it is for "Whites" this would indicate a propensity for
"White" police officers to shoot "Blacks" and not shoot
"Whites", and if that is the case then it should be looked into to
determine the cause."It's actually about *eight* times
higher (at least for serious crimes like homicide and rape). So police are
shooting black people *less* than should be expected, when you account for
different criminal offending rates.
Is it possible the police officer was defending himself after being hit in the
eye, and attacked?People are so so gullible, and jump to
conclusions.Is Al Sharpton, Obama, and Holder as concerned with the
American reporter who was just executed by ISIS? An act of war? Or our American
Marine in Mexico?
Then there is also the fact that the "forensics authority" hired by the
Brown family, isn't even qualified to do this kind of work. I think
I'll go get a job as a physics professor. (I am not remotely qualified.)
