    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

    Found it!!
    Big CONCERNING GASH on Browns hand




    "D. PARKS: Let me explain to you a few things. Number one, you`re going to notice that there`s an injury to his hand. That particular injury



    probably came at a close range, you`re going to find out later. Second, when we talk about front to back -- front to back mainly...



    GRACE: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, wait! Let me...



    D. PARKS: ... applies to two things...



    GRACE: ... let me hear what you`re saying. You`re saying that the gunshot wound to his right hand is at close range, although the autopsy is



    saying no shots at close range.



    D. PARKS: Well, let me explain it like this. It`s a big gash.



    GRACE: What?



    D. PARKS: It`s a big gash, so as you hear more about it, it`s a big gash on his hand.



    GRACE: So it`s not -- are you telling me it`s not a gunshot?



    D. PARKS: Now, how that`s -- no, it is a gunshot wound caused by the gun, but a bullet, but it`s a rather large gash in his hand.



    GRACE: Well, why do you say it`s at close range?



    D. PARKS: Secondly -- well, it`s pretty big and it`s pretty open.



    GRACE: That doesn`t mean close range.



    D. PARKS: Now, how and when it happened, I`ll leave that to the experts.



    GRACE: OK, well, that doesn`t...



    D. PARKS: Well, it could -- you`re right, but...



    GRACE: ... necessarily mean close range."

    In the same transcript.

    DW and his attorney have been silent, but, luckily, Daryl Parks is proving his innocence daily.

    I did not write the article that i posted on why police shoot men with knives. But regardless I am sorry for the misuse of some words. As far as some OW protestors yelling shoot shoot shoot. They were holding a protest outside a bar on OW' behalf. Once the mike brown protestors caught wind of this they moved in on that protest, and thats probably when those words were uttered.

    Was there delay in SLCo. PD's response, getting to Ferguson?

    "....interviews with law enforcement officials and a review of police logs make clear that a combination of factors, some under police control and some not, contributed to the time lapse in removing his body. "The St. Louis County Police Department, which almost immediately took over the investigation, had officers on the scene quickly, but its homicide detectives were not called until about 40 minutes after the shooting, according to county police logs, and they arrived around 1:30 p.m. It was another hour before an investigator from the medical examiner’s office arrived....."

    Hey ppl, we're talking about coordinating between 2 diff PDs -Ferguson PD and StLCoPD, for a non-routine function..... Takes time.
    Is it poss StLCo PD homicide on duty needed to wrap up a few things, before heading to Ferguson? ........................... Takes time
    Or poss StLCo PD had to call in extra homicide detectives for Ferguson?...................................................................Takes time

    The situation involved a shooting death, in which the shooter was known, identified, and not going anywhere.
    IDK if there was any delay at all. Maybe so, maybe not.

    JMO MOO IMO
