Never made that claim.

But you claimed to know the exact type and model of officer Wilson's gun. So I'll ask yet again, where did you get that information from? Just answer the question. Why is that so hard for you?

<quoted text>To me, Tony, it's relevant because the media, the spin-doctors, the race hustlers, and guys like Colbert have painted Brown to be this gentle giant that overcame bad surroundings and was about to leave for college when he was gunned down for absolutely no reason other than racism. And it appears that this wasn't the case. This ALWAYS happens, and it's the reason there is rioting, looting, etc. Nothing good comes from the spin, and it only serves to widen the trust gap and benefit those that gain from the racial discord.

The simple answer to your Ferguson PD question is that I don't know. It may not be a simple answer. Incompetence, negligence, shoddy police work, spin to protect themselves - it could be any of those reasons. It could be as simple as they want to have all of their information correct before proceeding. I don't know. I'm not here to defend them, and if they're found to be liable for anything - from a coverup to Brown's death - then I absolutely want them held accountable.

But the information that has surfaced thus far does not seem to favor Brown.
No I haven't. I speak of the evidence presented. You have an obvious problem with the facts.

You, the wolves, and a lawyer want to open his juvenile records for what? It had nothing to do with this officer shooting him six times, nothing.

<quoted text>You have got it spot on All you get out of anyone these days is excuses and cries of racism.
Eyewitnesses are extremely unreliable witnesses with prior arrests are not believable Whyd di Wilson shoot a 300 pound probably because he was attacking him or was doing whatever Point is facts prove he assaulted a LEO . no excuses armed or not assaulting an a man half is size put the office in imminent danger Blowing this guy a way was justified .
Putting a racial spin on this incident is pure nonsense If Brown were white and committed the same acts I can assure you he would be just as dead . The only difference is IA would have cleared Wilson by now
Wait...I thought the witnesses said they saw Brown attack the officer? So are they reliable or not?

Well people on this website seem to be so hung up on ridiculing, denigrating, hating as if these are the ultimate horrors America has to deal with Islamic militants are beheading American journalists.

While we continuously insult one another ISIS is training their very young children to continue the war with which will be your beautiful young children as we place so much attention on hating each other.

It has everything to do with you painting him to be a nice guy that was simply attacked by an officer because he was black. In fact, your exact words to me were, "he most likely would have walked away."

His juvenile records seems to indicate that he's never actually walked away from any confrontation in his entire life and supports the claim that he didn't walk away this time either.

If you don't think that this is relevant, then you will never find anything relevant that doesn't support your position. But we knew this already.

Time for the deflection and the circle-talking...

You can't tie his reaction to this incident with his juvenile record and call it relevant because you think he's a tough guy...You are projecting and that's not a fact at all...That's all you're doing is grasping for a reason to condemn Brown and praise Wilson, nothing more.
You want the juvenile record to show relevance? I want the firing and racist police department to be relevant.

By the way, where is officer Wilson? Still being a "hidden hero" of the streets?

Nice closing. "Get ready for the talking in circles...blah blah..."

Yes another screw up by the officials who strategically made things worse by releasing those "tidbits".

The outcome was predicted by those who used their brains and predicted the outcome.

You are so full of shyt! The only things you reveal from the news are the things which support your own racist agenda. You never mentioned the fact Wilson was never reprimanded or had any complaints filed against him (included in a link which you provided regarding the "firing" of Wilson), but you made sure to tell everyone that your link would prove Wilson was a racist cop. In fact, DENIED the article mentioned Wilson was offered to reapply for his job because Wilson, again, had never had a complaint, racial or otherwise, filed against him. You denied that, over and over again, saying nothing written anywhere ever said that! You had some poster on here repeating your own link, time and again, to prove you a liar, yet you still remained adamant poster was a liar! You stoop so low as to state the officers mother and father are such criminals and that Wilson just finally snapped! Your words. Your racist stupidity! I can't even believe a person with such hatred for an entire race of people (you hate whites) would be permitted to have employment in any outreach program, which is your claim. Think of the damage you must inflict on those children! So continue with your lies. It only proves how weak you really are!

Dear, we know very little about Wilson (though the cops and authorities seem to have given us some "information" about the unarmed teenager who was killed) and we can only hope that we will find out why the cops pumped at least six shots into the unarmed victim.

Stoop low? Wilson's mother was a criminal. Was I wrong? She did 5 years. That's a prisoner. I never mentioned his father. You're just being a big baby now.
But you called Brown a thug, robber, and other things, right? Was that in the news, or is that you own racism?

He was fired. He could reapply. They did NOT ASK HIM BACK INTO THE POLICE DEPARTMENT IN JENNINGS. He can REAPPLY. Doesn't mean he had the job. He would have not got hired back anyway. They knew he was a shitty cop, let Ferguson have him, and look at all the chaos he's caused, shooting unarmed teens. For shame.

Maybe you should run and protect this piece of shit too, crazy cat lady:

As the wonderfully progressive Abraham Lincoln once said...
"I have no purpose to introduce political and social equality between the white and black races. There is a physical difference between the white and black races which... will probably forever forbid their living together in terms of social and political equality... and I am in favor of the race to which I belong having the superior position."
As the unreasoned violence of rape, murder and attacking police officers continues to increase, understanding and embracing the progressive insights of Lincoln may be finally bearing their deserving attention.
The problem is that too many white people actually believe this tripe. This is what causes enmity between the races in the US. Those that believe this be informed; you are not superior, just more violent and aggressive. Your need to conquer and subjugate is pathological and is not conducive to the survival of the human race. I doubt you are the most intelligent species on earth. What other species develops weapons that could destroy our entire existence? That's just plain fu*king stupid.
