The whole case turns on it's head for me when Darren Wilson claims that Brown turns and charges him, thus he had to put two bullets in his head.
Nope. Brown had been shot 4 times already. 16 witness claimed he had his hands up and was surrendering.
I don't believe Wilson's claim in his interview with George Stephanopoulos, that he was polite and the boys were aggressive. I don't believe that he called for back-up before engaging Brown. There's a lot of Wilson's testimony that makes no sense to me, but I could let it all go, save for the two bullets to Browns head, after his hands were up.
That, in my opinion is the crux of the question. Did Wilson need to shoot an unarmed Brown, 2 times in the head when he did, in self defense? I don't think so.
