    MO - Grief & protests follow shooting of teen Michael Brown #7

    The fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager Saturday by a police officer in a St. Louis suburb came after a struggle for the officer’s gun, police officials said Sunday, in an explanation that met with outrage and skepticism in the largely African-American community.The killing of the youth, Michael Brown, 18, ignited protests on Saturday and Sunday in Ferguson, Mo., a working-class suburb of about 20,000 residents. Hundreds of people gathered at the scene of the shooting to question the police and to light candles for Mr. Brown, who was planning to begin college classes on Monday.
    Mr. Brown’s stepfather, Louis Head, held a cardboard sign that said, “Ferguson police just executed my unarmed son.”

    A couple of things:

    1) We are not going to allow links to blogs in this case without prior approval. And approvals will be tough to get.

    2) Posts directed at other posters rather than the case will earn a TO without explanation. If you have a problem with another member, use the alert feature and scroll on by OR use the ignore feature and keep it to yourself

    I think that might have been some type of error, popsicle. Look at the replies on that tweet.

    TWEET CORRECTION: Two lead prosecutors tomorrow, one is African-American woman. AG did not comment on jury. Apologies.

    Thanks for the new thread

    I was about to reply to this and saw the thread was about to close

    This was a comment asking about Wilson being hit/assaulted/punched. I'm not sure which word was used in the original comment.

    The Brown's lawyer has pretty much admitted this.

    "Nancy, without question, there was some level of interaction, strong interaction, between the officer and Michael at the car. We don`t deny that,” Daryl Parks, attorney for Brown’s family said Monday night. “I think as evidence comes out, you'll see and hear more of that. But that`s not what killed him.”

    Last night Parks was on and said it again, and stopped mid sentence when it seemed he was going to say MB hit Wilson.

    To me, if they are admitting "strong interaction" between the 2 then it happened, and I have to wonder if it was even worse then the way he's willing to present the info.

    Sorry for the quote not sure how to do it from the other thread.

    I think with this case they would have to bring it before the GJ b/c of how it's played out so far, even if Wilson is innocent. Way to many hands in the cookie jar from the start.

    Here is one truth I see as a fact (IMO) to start things rolling:

    Had the officer not fired on MB, the outcome would have been a dead cop. (IMO)
    Everything I post without a supporting link is always JMO.

    Agree. Or it would be like Angela Corey and Zimmerman... a special prosecutor being brought in.

    SMH. Do they really think MB died with his hands up surrendering?

    Clear your mind must be, if you are to discover the real villains behind this plot. Opinion only, my posts are.

    <modsnip>Folks, it is quite obvious that there is a campaign from those supporting officer Wilson to justify this killing <modsnip>Yes, it is possible that it was a justified shooting, but just as possible it is going to be found that it was not. The only facts are that this boy was shot at least 6 times and died. We do not know from how far away he was shot, what position he was in when shot, where is hands were, what he was saying, what the officer was saying to him etc..<modsnip> Just as we are expecting the protesters to wait for the facts, we ourselves should wait for the facts before we give officer Wilson a medal for gunning down a KID.
