In a properly conducted crime scene and forensic exam - that kind of tampering with a body would NEVER happen.
It wouldn't be a cover up. The first autopsy was done. Evidence could have been removed and stored as proper procedure. The body could have been released to a funeral home and washed before the family decided to buy their own doctor for an autopsy. Sorry to bust up your conspiracy theory.

He had been shot in the arm 4 times before this fatal shot...What do you think he was doing? Dancing?
We know what he was doing. He was assaulting a police officer.

Connecticut has some pretty run down inner cities, like Bridgeport, Hartford, New Haven, and Waterbury, and they are filled with African Americans, and Puerto Ricans.
Connecticut, is probably one of the most segregated U.S state, its charming rich rural European Americans, and its dank poor inner city ghettos filled with African Americans, and Puerto Ricans.
Congratulations, you just made an overly-generalized, stereotypical observation that could be made about most cities and suburbs in every state in the nation.

<quoted text>Consider ALL actions / re-actions by Ferguson PD in the wake of the killing;

1) No video of any kind available from the police vehicle or the officer.

2) The officer kills the subject, then leaves the scene - and the body is left just laying in the street for a long period of time.

3) The police chief makes several contradictory and inflammatory statements in the days following the killing.

4) The PD refuses to identify the officer for several days.

5) The PD finally releases the name of the office and immediately begins a campaign of demonizing the dead victim - while glorifying the killer cop as some sort of great guy etc ...

Never has such a small PD smelled like such a BIG rat.
Nothing you said means anything. The officer left the scene to get medical attention after he was attacked. They do not always have video. What inflammatory remarks are you referring to? Was it the fact that the gentle giant was actually a violent robing teen?

We know what the cop was doing - he was committing a murder.

And we know what his PD has been doing ever since - they've been conspiring to obstruct justice.

<quoted text>Lots of questions for the BIG rat, and no answers.

The PD needs to do some heavy lifting in the thinking department and figure out how this all could have been handled better. Could it be a lesson learned?
I think Brown learned his lesson. Don't attack the police. I'm sure he will not do it again.

Considering this killing was hugely controversial from the moment it happened - it makes your scenario not just highly unlikely, but nave at best - and really just an absurd fantasy to try to defend the indefensible actions of a killer cop and his corrupt PD.

Sounds like a perfect description of poor, white, trailer-trash rednecks all over the south.
Conquered - back in 1865 and they've just never gotten over it.
That must be why there is more miscegenation in the South, than the North. They resent losing the Civil WAr so much they decide to ruin their gene pool. Thing is... those trailer trash rednecks always end up voting Demoncrat.

Why is it that in every state, the African Americans, and Hispanics are on the bottom?

You would think that they would have progressed much more some where, right?

Your head must be almost ready to explode with every bit of established evidence coming out in support of a police officer's righteous take-down of a rampaging, drug addled, monstrous Negro. Videos, witness conversations unintentionally recorded, autopsy evidence, conflicting fellow perp statements... everything is just piling up against your views. Yup, your head's going to explode just like Brown's.

I grew up in Virginia - and I've lived in Florida. The trailer trash rednecks I've known over the years have typically been, poor, undereducated, ignorant and racist - and have never voted Democrat in their lives - unless they were old enough to have voted pre-Nixon.

I've also known better educated rednecks - and the differences were nominal.

You know nothing. Your type nonsense has destroyed sympathy for Negros stuck in the field genetically and intellectually. You've brought the coming hell on the human race, not those respecting excellence.

I wonder if Obama is still fixated on Robin Williams death and that is why he is not trying to stop the riots?
