Appreciated, but I've seen enough police brutality in NY to judge what I see and hear about cases like this. This ain't my first rodeo.

When the Blacks start taking accountability for THEIR actions and stop with all of the whining and entitlement issues.....then these incidents will cease.

The Browns have ALOT OF GALL to sit on national TV and act like their son was a little angel after he had robbed a convenient store just right before their " thug " was shot.

Nice parenting, Brown family !!!! Had you taught your son some respect for authority and NOT to steal....he would still be here.

Good, one less black male I HAVE TO SUPPORT WITH MY TAX DOLLARS sitting in prison !

The Brown family owe the clerk and store owner an APOLOGY, at the very least they could have offered to pay for the stolen merchandise .....I hope the clerk and store owner SUE THE HELL OUT OF THEM.

They never even gave that robbery a passing thought I'd bet....OR the people he robbed.

Typical .
Why do you think they hid him away in the beginning? They knew this was bad...And they made it worse with the cover up...They shall reap what they sew...

Just in case you forgot, here is one of those upstanding police officers:

Actually I am..... I have shot rifle/pistol competition and reloaded for 3 decades now. I served 8 years in the Marines(TAD as a range coach/NCO)with another 7 in the Guard as a Battalion Armorer. I occasionally recieve job offers from a private security agency that fills contracts for armed security for my State,on a contingency basis,usually limited to 30 days but subject to extention if needed. Done this several times over the last 5 years. I am also a shade tree gun doc and do small repairs on them for friends/family. So,yeah. You could call me an expert.
What chugot? A Jennings .25 and a half box of ammo?
I wouldn't call a half blind dazed man trying to put down a rampaging giant with six shots shooting "randomly". Wilson HIT Brown 6 times. NOWHERE is a miss mentioned. The locations of the shots on Brown's corpse indicate Wilson was firing with impaired vision yet STILL connected. OBVIOUSLY the last shots were the headers. Otherwise there would have been no need for the string of shots along the right side of his body. While I admit conjecture on MY part it IS based on shooting/ballistics knowledge in compromised positions/conditions.
I am not refuting anything you say here, as I certainly know zero about guns. I do want to mention, and I have said this several times already, that FOX news reported the officer had a fractured orbital, but yesterday, CNN disputed that, saying it was a lie. Both sides got their information from anonymous sources, so we can't say which story is true. In my opinion, I, too, believe the officer was making an attempt to stop MB from advancing towards him, hence the shots in the arm. At the end, according to a more recent witness yesterday, MB bent over, his arms circling his abdomen, appeared to take a step forward while bending over. The shots to the head supposedly happened then. We can all talk about this and it makes it sound like lots of time passed, but in reality, I'm certain it was over within seconds. I'm basing my opinion on the witness accounts, the autopsy results and trying to put it together with some common sense. Obviously, some witness accounts were false, evident by the autopsy by Baden. Trying to discern the truth is just a mere guess on anyone's part. I don't know any more than anyone else here. My opinion is just that.

Yeah, if we only had the power we could put those racist bast@rds in camps where they couldn't hurt anyone else. They would be treated as humanely as they deserve which is not much. Course they would have to earn there keep, work makes us free you know or as your predecessors put it, arbeit macht frei. Your hate is all to plain to see. Go f@@k yourself hypocrite. The racism on here is a result of the injustice they see every day, bust your butt to get a promotion sorry buddy were mandated to hire and promote this many minority's , kid wants to go to college sorry buddy were required to accept these minority's even though their test scores were lower. On and on and on. Now here's a punk thug , robs a store, assaults a cop, gets shot and we should railroad the cop. You can go to hell you liberal POS. I am NOT a racist but you will be held to the same standard as anyone in society. THATS FAIR

CNN is a dubious news source. MSNBC is a joke. They discredited themselves years ago. FOX is fairly reliable but still needs to be taken with a grain of salt. One scenario has Brown being shot along the right arm,as the pistol recoiled the hits moved up along the arm. As he was being hit,yet closing on the cop,he dropped his head and raised his right arm to protect himself. Thats when he was shot on the BACK side of his arm the the final two head shots impacted. He was in,like a linesman rushing position,charging the cop from just yards away. 6 hasty shots in a matter of seconds isn't unusual. At that distance point-n-pull is the name of the game. Add a spinning head and blurry vision and its a wonder he hit as well as he did.

Obama will go down in history as one if not the single most productive Presidents in this country's history. And oh yeah, a black man. Nobody in history has taken control of a county so badly managed. Bush administration had us on the verge of collapse all while lining his and his buddy's pockets. All in the name of Jesus. You see with you Rednecks, all you have to do is mention Jesus, Guns, Freedom, Military and you toothless wonders suck it up. Most republicans in the south and probably the county are poor yet they follow a party that works to undermine their own interest. Obama has raised us up out of despair and on the track to world dominance again.

Stop making our race look like fools. Instead why don't you try working , going to school or just do something good for your community. This sitting around and writing hate is what is wrong with a lot of blacks. It is one reason that Brown ended up shot to death. Children need leaders and good advice in there lives not the same old white man is bad crap. That is why we see the kids fall into this never ending circle f poverty.

I see you are writing here too. What is your excuse?

I have been up all night working on a project. I will be traveling tonight and up again. Right now I have some spare time to burn while I wait for my train.

Your problem is you are an ignorant b!tch and do not want anybody to question your stupidity. But I am really too tired right now.

Inner city black youths are only this way because of the relentless tormenting they get from society. And if AA was not in place you could keep people of color right where you want them. Black people are the most tormented people in all the world. Society need to do whAt ever necessary to ensure the progression of black people. Without us you have no society.

Thats all the troll can do. I've read a few of his nonsensical postings and it seems he has lived everywhere,knows everybody and done everything..... In reality he hasn't done chit,probably isn't over 25 and most likely isn't Black.

Black youth needs mentors like you. The current crop(Sharpton,ect)of self-designated Black "leaders" that have pushed their way to the front seem to be lacking. Dr. Ben Carson,J.C.Watts,Jason Riley Charles Paine,Dr. Thomas Sowell and several others I have read/listened to and admired are more worthy of respect than they recieve from the AA community. These men are self-made and highly regarded in their respective fields by all who know them.

Let me guess..... You've spent your whole life being wrong and are too old to change now,right? Sounds like it from all the Obama azz kissing you're doing here. FYI: Obama checked out of the job a while back. Now he's just coasting to the finish line. Your ilk doesn't even figure in his daydreams anymore.

<quoted text> Very interesting about the Mounds. Who takes care of that area? I noticed where the link stated one of the circles was reconstructed in 1985... Were you still in the area to witness that? You seem to have some very interesting family in your ancestry. Nice to find those stories, I'm sure. As for Ferguson and your comment that Ferguson is not poor, I certainly can't claim to know, but I did hear one of the news stations say that the unemployment is one of the highest in the state and spoke of how many of the residents were on welfare and/or other government assistance. They were speaking of the looting, etc... That, to me, doesn't sound like a town I would describe as "not poor". Again, I'm getting information from news stations.
I do not know all the details. But the National Parks Service is involved somehow l think the state of Illinois is also involved. I met some peers from the national Parks Service on my way to the Twin Cities. They were there for some. This is a major human treasure. The United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is also involved. Legally, this means that you racist red necks white trash are not allowed to mess with it. The whole world would rise up if you did mess with it. You have been warned. So get use to the idea that the white scum in Ferguson is not going to win this one in the long rum
