Don't really care what Jackson said. The boy was with him when the robbery occurred and left with him. He sure didn't call the police did he? The store where it happened was looted last night. Fine group of trash in that town.
I am already questioning the witnesses and their credibility and I dont consider Dorian Johnson a witness to the shooting of Micheal Brown who is one of them like you said was involved in the robbery at the convinent store and he is on tape receiving the stolen property which he could have given back to Micheal Brown but didnt and like you said Ferguson, Missouri has a fine group of Trash, Black Trash that is in that town.

So, he only received stolen property and that isn't directly complicit. Funny. Lawyers are funny, especially the ones paid by out of towners. Has Sharpton had a sit-down with Brown's mama yet, to discuss extorting money from a city with no tax income from the looters?

well now that the facts come out and the "Gentle giant who was a good boy going off to college next week" turns out to be a common oversized black bully thief using his size & weight to push smaller people around will the looters bring back all the stuff they looted?

will they pay for the damages to the stores they looted?

why do blacks use every or any excuse to loot?

will al notso Sharpton and the new black panthers apologize for all the racist remarks they made about the police??

So tired of blacks whining complaining about any thing and every thing
this alleged racism crap is so old. get out get a life and start living in 2014.

consider that Lithuanians or all the ethnic or races don't have a congressional n word caucus or Lithuanian history month or Lithuanian history classes at Harvard or affirmative action but we make it in life in America and so does every other race and ethnic group.

so blacks need to get with the program join the 2014 real world get out get a job and a life.

and loose that moron al notso Sharpton and those moron panthers they are out of touch with reality.

If there is nothing damaging in the video why is everyone so reluctant to have it go public?
Because they don't want the real character of Brown boy to come out. As is the case, blacks are very one-sided when it comes to the truth. All that "we've be put down" stuff, you know? If there was a video of Brown boy shooting the cop, they would be screaming it was a fake video. So it goes. They will destroy themselves.

he wasn´t a thug, he was an unarmed teenager who lost his young life at the hands of a criminal and a liar with a badge and a gun. he was guilty of walking in the middle of the street...nothing else. he was not stopped for robbery at the time, this story has been cooked p recently to make the killer look innocent. btw, his mother called for peace not for violence.
No police officer shoots somebody for walking in the street. I don't know about your country, but here in the US, a police officer defending himself is not only legal, but applauded by decent human beings. The officer had to be treated at a medical facility. I wonder how he got wounded if the suspect was just walking in the street?

Gem,
Clearly your words ring true. It is unfortunate that there those who take pleasure in hatred. This irrational bias thinking continues to affect every new upcoming generation. Instead of focusing on how can we improve our relationship some of us simply pass it on to their children.
We tried to improve relationships, but blacks want nothing to do with it.

I'll try again. Right here on Topix, I'm going to stop every shooting of black people by police by writing these simple instructions. Ready????

When a police officer tells you to stop, you simply stop. You do not run, do not turn away, you do not walk away.

When a police officer asks you for your name or identification, you simply give him your name and identification. You do not start yelling about your constitutional rights, do not tell him it's none of his business, and do not refuse to give him your name or identification.

If the officer tells you that you have to be detained and put in cuffs, you simply follow his instructions until you are cuffed. You do not run away, do not punch the officer, do not pull away from the officer.

There. Now if we can pass these simple easy to do instructions to all black people, and they follow them, there will be no more shootings of black people by police.

Not sure yet. What we are sure of is that DumBama didn't say the officer "acted stupidly" and he saved himself two beers.

Brown didn't know that. What he knew is he just committed several crimes and a police officer was addressing him. Brown likely assumed the cop was going to take him in and reacted accordingly.

1. Don't commit crimes

2. Don't burn down or loot your local stores

3. Stop blaming everyone else for your stupid life choices

4. Don't resist arrest (see # 1 )

These rules should apply with all races.

What rules should apply to the cops?

Are they trained to shoot to wound or to shoot to kill?

And how many bullets pumped into one body is good police training?

You are right but the cop had a gun, handcuffs, other weapons, a car and - supposedly - training to deal with those larger folks.

We are grateful this young man did not have a gun?

"He's a good boy!" This good boy strong armed a store owner, and stole cigars in front of a video camera. He fully believed he had a right to steal. There is another picture of him showing his gang affiliation. This good boy was a gangbanging thug. His supporters believe we need to just over look his shoplifting, because that is just the way his gangbanging friends get their cigars. There is a whole different approach to law, and order in Brown's community. I must say it was interesting to listen to his supporters trying to make a choir boy out of a thug. He would be alive today if he had been taught to respect the law.
