That makes sense. I was wondering why Warren didnt also wail about saint Trayvon Martin.

LOL
Just like they promoted the image of Trayvon as a cute 8 year old.

Ridiculous.

That Brown was a douche bag thug. The community made an ass of itself protesting when he got shot fighting with police.
Too bad he died, a police dog chowing down on his genitals would have been better or having his empty noggin cracked by a nightstick half a dozen times would have been better, but his future victims are now spared his stealing from them or robbing them. Warren is an ass.

Don't get where you are getting your information. I can find no evidence that Michael Brown was a thug. He was a fresh high school graduate heading to college. That would be very abnormal for a thug. He was also in the middle of a religious epiphany.

The incident at the store turns out to be more complicated than originally reported. He had a night before dealing there where he exchanged pot for cigarillos but then left the cigarillos. Then apparently took them the next day. Exactly how that all unfolded is still unclear and will probably never be known.

The actual shooting is also unclear and can be interpreted in various ways. The fatal shot was apparently fired when Brown was 35 feet from the police SUV. So close in combat while the shooting occurred would not seem reasonable. Johnson, Brown's companion, who also does not appear to be a thug, has stuck to his story that Brown's hands were mostly up when he was shot.

So it is quite possible to read the evidence against the cop. Though certainly not clear.

From the DOJ:


Quote:

Witnesses who say so cannot be relied upon in a prosecution because they have given accounts that are inconsistent with the physical and forensic evidence or are significantly inconsistent with their own prior statements made throughout the investigation. Certain other witnesses who originally stated Brown had his hands up in surrender recanted their original accounts, admitting that they did not witness the shooting or parts of it, despite what they initially reported either to federal or local law enforcement or to the media.



You can argue this all day but nothing will change the fact the physical evidence matches Wilson's story and that is almost always the reason someone gets caught lying, such as is the case with Dorian Johnson. The only thing that contradicts Wilson is a few "witnesses" who give contradictory statements of the events including contradicting themselves.

Even the great Eric Holder couldn't prosecute the cop. Not that he wouldn't have loved to. Michael Brown was about as innocent as OJ is
