He may have thought if the next punch knocked him out, then Brown would have his gun.




well if he was hit like this i would agree :

but it would appear if he was hit it was more like this

Not necessarily.
For some reason, I really don't know why, never looked at it from a medical point of, but I don't bruise. Or, if I do, I have to be hit HARD. I mean at least hard enough to break bones. I've taken some pretty hard, repeated punches and never showed signs of being in a fight. Maybe a bloody nose. Maybe. Just because his face doesn't look like a slaughter fest, doesn't mean he wasn't hit.

Yes.

Getting punched in the face by a 300 pound man would typically leave a much more noticable impression. Ever seen a boxing match? Ever been in a street fight? Punches, bare knuckle especially, don't leave slight red marks on the face. They leave gashes, massive bruises, or in many cases broken facial bones.

Those images don't look like an injury sustained from a punch.



Have you ever taken a shot to the side of your face from a 300 lb man? I have and it didn't leave a mark at all, but it almost cranked my neck enough to knock me out.

I understand what you are trying to say, but what I don't understand is why wasn't non-lethal methods utilised? Why couldn't he just wait for back up in his patrol car from a safe distance? Even if he lost sight of Brown, surely LE could follow the blood trail?

I would be scared, yes, making bricks in my pants if some giant dude had a go at me and then tried to get my gun. But what good am I to the community dead or incapacitated if I go back after the dude I injured? One who is obviously aggro?

This is the issue with LE and some (I stress this word) trigger happy citizens. WHY do we need guns for protection? Once upon a time it was just a swift kick to the nads.


It's quite likely that the officer believed, very reasonably, that the criminal (remember, he had just robbed a store) was on PCP or some other drug that made him crazed and impervious to pain. Either that or he was psychotic. What else would explain him reaching into a police car, hitting an officer and grabbing his gun?

I know that the world has racist people, and that is a a very idiotic fact. Having said that, just because he was black does not mean he was shot because he was black. If he would have been a thug-life white dude, he would still have been shot. You reach into a police officer's car, bad Doo Doo goes down. That is what the grand jury decided.I don't believe he reserved to die at all, but the cop was following protocol. My main point is to please stop with the "because he's black" about every crime against a black man/woman. It just makes people believe that there is more racism than there is, and that's the last thing we need.

Perhaps some context would be helpful. Using what information we know from the transcripts, Google Earth, and crime scene photos from the site below, here's some positioning on where things were.

Does this fit Wilson's story well? Seems to me that it was Wilson mostly running at Brown if Brown ended up 10 feet away from Wilson when he died.

E: Additionally, here is the audio from the shooting (the first two shots were not captured, but the remaining 10 were):


Here's the part of the story you obviously missed: WILSON IS A COP. HE WAS PURSUING A FLEEING CRIMINAL WHO HAD JUST ROBBED A STORE.

What really struck me about this interview was when he said "I asked myself if I could shoot him"

Or some such similar. Then he qualified it to mean, legally.

If he had time to wonder or worry about that, the answer was likely no. If his life was truly in danger, he would not have stopped to ask himself that question.

He was looking for justification to shoot Brown, IMHO.


So you've been in exactly that same situation with the training of a police officer? I didn't think so.

I think these people are confusing what they see on TV and in films with reality. Unless they're hit in eye or nose or cut, professional boxers who have been hit hard enough to be knocked out don't look that bad -- until probably the next day.

You forgot the "HE'S COMING RIGHT AT ME" part of the cop's story.

The entire "doing my job" just slays me.

So were the Nazi guards.

My Lai incident too.

Odd how folks claim there is no race problem in America. Not if you are white.

Derek

You are the reason there is a race problem, I'm friends with a lot of blacks, whites, browns, and yellows and none of them think that anyone is targeting them because of race. Its personal accountability for your own actions, and to say that white people don't get mistreated by cops is truly ignorant.

In all of this I cant stop wondering about how many times stronger Hulk Hogan would be than a 5 year old.

Taking a highly scientific approach - we take a prime Hogan, circa '87, who's squatting 650, benching 400 and is 6 foot 9.

Then we take an average 5 year old boy that weighs 40 lbs and is 4 feet tall but might- as an extreme example- be able to lift 100 lbs.

Using MMAths I calculate that with a near 3 foot height advantage and a 250Lb weight advantage, Hogan would be 6-10 times more "functionally strong" than a 5 year old.

That cop must not even lift bros.

Why would they need to lift? They can gun you down and get protection from prosecution. Seems a bit redundant to lift when you can just shoot someone in the face.

"Perfect Record"

I don't know about anyone else, but if your previous job was DISBANDED due to racism, it wouldn't look good on your resume and would only look 'perfect' for retarded racists.


So if you work for a company that is guilty of dishonest practices, that makes you dishonest by association?


and yet...when cops kill someone else unfairly, the country runs and calls all "good cops" who don't STOP the "bad cops" from being dishonest just as bad. We've seen it posted all over ATS and elsewhere...so which is it?

So which is it America? Should are good cops who do nothing to stop it just as bad? Or are they not guilty because the association argument bull?

Yes I say so...let's completely remove the police

I work for a company who practices dishonestly and unethically. If I know it and do nothing, sure maybe the law won't crash on me...but I am not sleeping at night...I consider it guilt

I did not perform such acts but if I know, I know.

Either way, there is a serious balance problem here on both sides...this crap has got to stop

There is a point to be made here...as a white man I have yet ((other than one stupid incident)) to be harassed. I've been pulled over for legit reasons where I was absolutely guilty....yet been let off many times. Yeah nowadays I don't speed around or do dumb # like when I was in my young 20's...but I was never touched.

For sure but the issue behind this isnt about Mike Brown the guys is just a catalyst for larger, deeper issues.]

Less then lethal force was also part of his training.


Yes, if appropriate. When the person assaults you while reaching for your gun, then turns around when you get out of your car to try and make an arrest and starts charging you (with a logically deduced intent to do further bodily harm), sometimes you have to result to the last resort.

I'm with Darren Wilson on his comment.

Neat.

You know, I'm kind of in the same boat except for when I was a pothead in school and was harrassed by cops relatively often because of the way I looked and acted (baggy clothes, kind of sh*tty attitude, etc.). But I think that's really the point--it was because of my look at attitude (and sometimes actions), not because of my skin color (I'm white, btw).

But for every story like yours, KyoZero, there is a Hispanic, Black, Asian, Middle-Eastern, etc. person who also has never experienced harrassment at the hands of the police. And then there are many white people who do and mimic the anecdotes of black people who talk about harrassment. So it's definitely not enough to say that it's all about skin color--the micro-culture of neighborhoods has a lot to do with it, too.
