I not taking sides against the police officer. You can't beat a police officer and expect to get away with it. But according to one witness, the police officer backed up in his car almost hitting the suspects, then violently slammed open the car door open hitting the suspects with the door. Isn't that assault? It was then that the young man pushed the officer inside the car and beat him. I'm not stating this to be a fact, but that is what happened according to one witness.

Today is the funeral for Michael Brown and just seeing some of it on CNN is ridiculous!!! Al Sharpton is laughing at people dancing on stage and some girl fell to the floor and someone was fanning her, this is ridiculous!
The White House sent 4 of their people to attend the funeral and what about Trayvon??? He didn't have this much attention for his funeral! Martin Luther Kings son is there also! This is like a Zulu celebration and it's people showing off and are there for show and nothing relating to Religion!

question , if officer slammed open his door ...won't that mean that the victim is in the middle of the street.....I'm positive the car did not go speeding by the victim and then backed up and the victim was with his friend so one is on the walk ??????????

The police officer said they were walking in the middle of the street and that's why he stopped to talk to them. Don't know how busy a street is was, probably busy now. That's no reason to hit them with the car door though, if that's what happened. My point is maybe this shooting could have been prevented, the young man could have went to jail, maybe some anger management classes if he didn't go to prison. They said he quit high school football because he didn't want to hurt the smaller players

I'm not trying to spin anything. I didn't know the young man, but I've seen a lot like him walking around pissed off no money and a chip on their shoulder. The robbery video makes him look bad, nobody wants to be treated like the store clerk was. But that don't tell you everything about him. A lot of people think he was a good kid.

Do you think the shooting should have been prevented if it could have been prevented?

There has been disclosure of the fact that the police officer was beaten over here, to the best
of my knowledge, so I was unaware of that fact.
But even so, you are saying he would have been dead had he not shot his assailant, I can't
understand that, as surely, had Michael wanted to kill the cop, he would have done so,
instead of which he left the vehicle, that does not seem to me that he intended to further
any harm to the cop....and I still say that cop could have used his stun gun, or his taser,
if supplied, at the very least he could have shot him to stop him in his tracks, i.e. in
the legs, as God knows, he was a big enough target.
Bare in mind, the eyes of the world are on this situation, and it does not paint your police
in a good light if you will forgive me for saying.
I was in your country during a period of rioting...there is always a good reason.
A cop is responsible for the bullet he fires from the time it leaves the barrel of his weapon until it stops, that is the reason warning shots are only seen in the movies. Police officers are trained to aim at center mass and I don't believe this officer ever hit the target he was trained to aim for, so how was he going to hit a much smaller target, being a leg,

People can sit in their homes and review an incident and say it should have been handled a differently, These people are calm, don't have a man twice their size, who is a suspected felon, charging towards them,, they aren't experiencing an adrenalin rush, so their hands aren't shaking, and they don't hear their pulse beating, or hear themselves breathing, or know they have head injuries, but don't feel the pain and are unable to know the severity of the injuries because of the excessive adrenalin pumping through bodies. When he fires his weapon, his shaking hands make it difficult for him to hit his target.

Unless you are faced with these circumstances, you don't know how you would handle a matter like this. I don't know how I would have handled it. No two people would have handled it exactly the same, with the same training or not.

The main cause of death among blacks 15 to 35 is murder. It was just a question of time until he was killed or killed someone else. Just another thug who wound up dead

Stunned at your post, Denny.

Not sensible to generalise...

What if you said that in court:)

We don't know for certain if the officer would have been dead had he not shot at Michael Brown. The point is, why 6 shots when one or two could have taken him down. The officer panicked and imo,. It was overkill. I do understand the officer's fear though. Brown was a big guy - a guy who had just committed a theft and refused the officer's instructions to not obstruct traffic. Just the same, I've seen several video tapes of officers using lethal force when it was not necessary to do so. When I say lethal force, I mean the victim was shot many times over. One victim was handcuffed after he had been shot over 10 times. Surely this man was in no position to get up. In fact he was already dead by the time the officer handcuffed him. I know it's a violent world out there and were seeing more brazen criminals trying to over power police officers. I can't imagine what it's like to be in the law force and face hardened criminals and thugs every day who unwarily put themselves in the position of losing their lives. Unfortunately, all that is going to come out of this for now, is anger and hatred towards the police force. Officers might consider trying a less lethal approach. The use of tasers and maiming or incapacitating the criminal first, before deciding to fire multiple shots that don't answer the question as to whether it was crucial or even necessary in the first place. Granted, there are some instances where lethal force may be necessary, but most of the time, it may not be and probably isn't. Unfortunately, I hope that others like Michael Brown will cool their tempers and think twice about assaulting an officer but that probably isn't going to happen anytime soon. More importantly, I hope officers will realize what can happen in certain situations when firearms are considered the norm, before any other alternatives or options are instituted. An officer was in fear of his life and did what he felt he was trained to do, and another mother and father lost their son.

Do you think the shooting should have been prevented if it could have been prevented?
This shooting could easily have been avoided.....if his parent's had taught him about personal boundrys and manners and to respect law enforcement......Now that he is buried, can we see his Juvenile Records?.....

He had a swollen face/eye socket, although it was fractured as first reported. The officer was roughed up but no broken bones or stitches that I'm aware of. As far as logic, I don't believe that some of these officers think completely logically or always rationally. Shoot to kill and ask questions later has it's consequences and that may be even more dangerous to police then ever before. I'm sure we'll be seeing more of these situations in the near future.

What difference does it make?? If he attacked a police officer..the policeman had every right to blow him away..he grabbed for his gun too...

probably meaningless too??

wasted effort!!!
