These are all facts that are not in dispute.

Only two people in the world really know what happened next. One of them is dead.
Stop lying! He charged at Wilson and was shot.

There's plenty wrong in your post, so I left what's probably the worst --- relying on Dorian Johnson and saying he never changed his story. Johnson promoted the 'shot in the back' lie and eventually admitted he didn't really see the shooting. The entire 'hands up, don't shoot' myth is largely Johnson's doing. ther changes in his story as well.

Of all the potential martyrs and victims Warren and Harris could use to further their careers, Brown might be the worst choice. And you choosing Johnson as a person with objective 'insight' into what happened is a joke.

Anything less puts Wilson's life at unreasonable risk. If Brown didn't want to die he needed to have stayed put. He didn't and that was his choice. To state or think otherwise is fantasy armchair quarterbacking of the situation, and it has no basis in the life and death reality of the situation nor what cops are permitted to do in spite of the opinions of armchair quarterbacks.

Brown's repeated actions put him in the ground. And the case is literally closed.
Wilson was more than big enough to deal with Brown with a club and a taser. And all he had to do was wait and he would have been in numerical superiority. The decision to shoot 10 times at an unarmed teenager because you are unwilling to admit you can't deal with him by yourself is one made by Wilson.

He was under no compelling reason to even chase Brown other than perhaps staying in sight of him. He has no compelling reason to close but does so.

Again he may well have not done anything illegal but he did a number of things which were stupid.

Absolutely unclear. Or did he attempt to drop to the ground or trip and get shot in the top of his head?


Why on earth did Wilson close on this big guy if he was not willing to physically close with him? All he had to do was stay in sight and await reinforcements.

LOL
I remember this too. Another video surfaced around that time which showed Brown terrorizing an elderly man in a wheelchair and not letting him enter his apartment. This Brown fella was not a nice man at all. Many neighbors interviewed off camera were relieved he was gone.

Warren is a fool and supports criminals .

The bottom line is that Brown attacked an officer of the law. The officer, no officer for that matter is paid to be anyone's punching bag. Some can argue that Brown was a gentle giant and that lie is not supported by his actions. I mean seriously, who reaches into a police car and attacks a cop? Not a gentle giant that is for sure.

Ill go 1 step further. Black, brown white or yellow, I don't care what color you are. You attack a cop and the story isn't going to end well for you.

Warren isn't acting like she cares about the Brown situation because she actually cares. She sees it as a chance to manipulate the black vote in her favor. Nothing more and nothing less. She is a race baiter...

Brown was a violent thug whose actions were the sole cause of getting himself shot.

Absolutely correct. His behavior demonstrated who and what he was. He met an untimely end due to his own actions.
