Who brought the gun into the situation in the first place? If the police did not carry guns then brown would be still alive. The mind set of shoot first ask questions later is built into the American psyche. Surrounded by gun stores full to the brim with guns, assault rifles and other deadly weapons in every shopping centre illustrates American shoot to kill policy justice!!!
One of the times I'm glad to be an expatriate. America is going down the tubes. Sorry John, but Brown would still be alive today if he wasn't breaking the law. He brought all this trouble down on himself. If he had the least bit of common sense he would have gotten off the streets after committing that felony let alone antagonizing and attacking the officer. This thug was no gentle giant...look at his rap sheet! Do you expect the cop to keep his distance and wait until the thug turns himself in? I'm sure gentle Mike could be trusted to follow the "honor system" and turn himself in for that strong arm robbery. Give me a break.
As to the other recent shootings. People should watch their kids. I worked at a youth detention center for a brief period and we had "children" mini-thugs as young as five years old. I BS you not. A twelve year old is more than capable of pulling a trigger. The officers must defend themselves. Children should be taught better and this wouldn't happen.
The officers testamony on what I mentioned about the struggle for the gun would explain the fatal wound. I agree on maiming though because I have always hoped that if I were in a life or death struggle, I would have the wherewithall in the heat of the moment to shoot a leg, or whatever to stop an attacker. No, I guess we don't ha e all the facts, but there was enough for the grand jury to say the shooting was warranted; the officer had no choice. Not to mention, the witnesses who were found to be truthful, whose eye witness accounts implicated the thug. I don't wish death on anyone and wish it had all gone another way because the kid is, very unfortunately, somehwere he wishes he wasn't, and that's tragic.
I'm sorry to say that site that I used to use for the ISBE has changed considerably. so you can find dr. Shodde excellent article on Interpretation at this location. for that matter, I might as well give you a sermon on biblical interpretation as well, Principles of Bible Interpretation.
Christopher000... I don't know if either of us has all the facts. According to testimony by officer Wilson, he said he backed up his car in front of them and as he opened the door Michael Brown slammed it in his face. I would say that was to close. Why not drive forward, away from the suspect and get out? It probably turned into a pissing contest at that point where Michael Brown was going to try and keep the door shut and officer Wilson was going to try and force it open. If that is what happened. I don't know. Who's to say? Where is the police video? Could there be audio on it that helps to determine what happened? It's all he said this, they said that. Also, his hand supposedly were not up, but in his drawers. Why not take out the kids legs? Just because an officer can legally shoot to kill doesn't mean he ought too!
Good morning Christopher. If you are on the SA app. Then you can't see all the comments. You have to go to the website for that. But based on the comments a post was submitted that stated "the love of the brethren has grown cold here."
Ya - tv, radio, newspapers, magazines etc. All the same info coming from the same source. The parrots can't question what they're given as they have a love of money and need a job, and they sure don't want to be laughed at for questioning what the beast saith.
No more ebola fears now. That's all ok. Now it's on to the Ferguson manufactured crisis.
"tossed to and fro..."

By the way, sure, mistakes are made and there are even bad cops who are in fact racist, profile, etc, and they should be exposed, fired, and prosecuted. On a case by case basis though, this other racial nonscense has to stop. The mindless, hate filled.crowds, in this instance, still believe all the liars who were exposed and recanted, along with all the spurious social media hype that is/was nothing but fiction.
From another post that may help all of you with your problem:
"You know I was pondering this in relation to the Romans 13 Cult and their hobby doctrine. Assuming their hobby doctrine is what they claim, then their leaders would have to enforce the commandments of God and punish all those who disobey and doeth evil. And those who doeth evil, which isn't limited to the shedding of blood, are to be killed. So anyone, be they believers or unbelievers, women or children, are to be put to death for disobeying any commandment of God. Further, unbelievers are to be killed for simply not believing as they are in a constant state of doing evil. And come to think of it, even if the hobby doctrine applies to obeying the commandments of man, like the grievous millions of so-called laws, then the same punishment of death applies. Even not knowing all the so-called laws is reason enough for death! Oh dear!! Such burdens."
And foundational Romans 13 Cult doctrine requires a Theocracy.
Here in RI, protesters in the 100's marched last night and decided to sit down in the middle of route 95 downtown, jamming traffic for miles, keeping emergency vehicles from getting to their destinations, etc. Blacks kill blacks in droves, and not a peep. Blacks fire through windows and kill babys/children, and not a peep. Blacks kill a white, and not a peep. A white kills a black in self defense.and it's always racism as Mr OBama stirs the people into a white vs black frenzy, along with the other racist reverends, etc. Something is very, very wrong and it's the people crying racism who are the real racists and who are keeping it alive. Don't wanna be killed? Don't be a killer thug. Angry someone has it better than yourself? Go find a job and work.your way up or get.an education. Racism is disgusting, mindess nonscense.
