    @mdavis: Racist how? Stereotyping white cops as having long, rubbery right arms?


    In any case, this cartoon seems to be making reference to the fact that Michael Brown was actually three times as far from Darren Wilson’s police cruiser as the cops were claiming. This distance—over 100 feet—puts lie to the claim that Wilson was under direct threat when he murdered Brown.

    “…over 100 feet…” 100’ at what point? The reality is we we not there in a a very scary two minute time frame. From what I’ve read we have a cop who had been scared by a kid who pushed too hard. The cop should not have taken a shot and the kid should not have been aggressive.
    I easily qualify as a liberal on this site but if I was a cop and a person, regardless of age, gives me reasonable reason to fear for my life I would respond with what I felt was safest option for me.
    Realistically training can not stop a person from being scared and taking actions that in retrospect they would do differently. Two minutes, 120 seconds, holy cow.
    Cops need to respect the populace and the populace needs to respect the cops.

    I have no problem at all in agreeing with your post at all! But would add that anybody that would think that any cop (regardles of just how well trained in shooting his firearm) could even hit a person at 100 feet with a normal hand gun has never had to fire such a weapon for any kind of accuracy at that kind of distance!

    I was a pretty good marksman while serving in the National Guard, but we never fired our 45 calibur automatics at a target more than about 75 feet from us, and even then were very happy to have even hit the target anywhere. A hand gun IS a close proximity weapon, and 100 feet is a terrible distance to even begin to think that you stand a chance of hitting someone accuratly enough to kill them with!!

    This is assuming that Wilson at that point was all the way back at his cruiser; witnesses said he had actually chased after Brown and was closer than that. Folks have also noted that none of the shots hit Brown’s center mass, which might be consistent with attempts to hit him there but the gun pulling. He also missed with at least four shots.

    @agrestic

    OK, that is more reasonable, and evidently the Grand Jury does not believe that officar Wilson should be charged with anything. And under the rule of law which we all must abide by, that is that for me at least!


    A few years ago, my only son was also killed when he crossed a street and was hit by an 85 year old woman’s rented car that ran the red light from all th eway across the intersecting boulevard. Would my hating this old woman, let alone rioting and destroying other peoples property, have done anything to bring back my dear son to me? I somehow doubt it. All it would have done it to relect badly upon myself, just as this senseless rioting reflects badly upon those that do it!!


    If that is a more ocnservative opinion, then so be it, in this case I am indeed a more conservative person!!

    Well, the Grand Jury decided not to indict, and as expected rioters are burning down their town, and as of 11:45pm Eastern, have shot about 60 rounds at cops.

    Was the officer’s account of the shooting ever published?

    The prosecutor’s report of the evidence showed shots WERE fired when the officer was still linside his car, and Brown’s blood was on the vehicle, then he ran off, witness statements weren’t all that conflicting when the shlockers out to “meet the press” were ruled out.


    The tape of radio conversations proved the officer had his robbery suspect, not some “poor innocent kid”. Should he have shot a very large, very nasty, individual? That’s still just a little to be debated, but saying a large person is unarmed is also not true, Review police records of how many people are killed by “unarmed” people..


    The REAL problem here is the media doing everythng they could to tell THEIR story, and start a riot, not seek the truth, and THAT is, for both sides of this argument, the situation when “public perception” takes the place of physical evidence, which the prosecutor DID reveal.


    Furgeson does have a problem within their police “society”, but so does the town at large, and in its divergent segements, and that IS our national problem, grown worse again in the past six years. And the media has been a large player in that as well.

    And that’s why they are rioting. Because your expressed attitude toward them is shared by so many Americans.

    My conduct is not a result of your attitude, nor is the conduct of protestors in Ferguson a result of anyone’s attitude toward them. Their conduct is a result of bad parenting, and illogical thinking. Society does not own you a living, nor a life, get off your butt, raise your kids to think for themselves. Don’t be a sheep.

    @tironhead

    ^ You apparently don’t know the difference between a description and an explanation.


    WHY is there bad parenting and illogical thinking? What is the cause of that?


    And who said ANYTHING about anyone owing anyone a living? Or was that just a knee-jerk response that you are repeating in a sheep-like fashion because Faux News told you it was so?

    I know you’re writing from Austria, where you’ve grown up with the attitudes are expressed by a former painter.

    @churchillwasright

    Maybe you should change your name to godwinwasright. And if anyone is espousing ideas anywhere close to those of a failed painter, I’d say it would be tironhead rather than Hiram Bingham. In fact, one of the closest things to a party espousing those sorts of ideas these days comes from the land of your namesake, and answers to the initials “BNP.”

    Hopefully, many hit their mark.

    Darren Wilson is a killer.
