So you admit the officer was injured in an assault.By whom?Could it be MB and possibly the "witness"who assaulted a police officer,attempting to get the officer's gun,and as a result was shot.You are as truthful as the"witness" who was also present at the strong arm robbery.

Deflection and straw man argument noted.
The officer was treated and released. His so-called injuries were not at all serious.
He and his PD have a lot of explaining to do as to why he left the scene (of the crime) so abruptly.

So you admit that you're spewing complete BS again - in a laughably pathetic effort to defend a cop and a PD who you know are in BIG, BIG trouble. lol

You're in denial.All shots were to the front,on the right side,and injuries to an officer.A close quarter struggle for the officer's weapon.MB committed multiple felonies,He was the aggressor.

The Officer has an exemplary record, the gangbanging thug, not so much. The Grand Jury met today. I am sure they will rule by the end of the week. Then the looters can finish school shopping, grab a few beers, and go home.

When you reach for a police officer's gun you should expect to get shot dead. These teenagers think they are immortal, and the law doesn't ever affect them. It would never occur to most people to grab the gun.
Too bad for you that story is a lie.

No it isn't a lie. The police officer has many awards for his good work. Brown is a gangbanging thief, and so is his friend that was with him when he strong armed the store keep for the stolen cigars. They won't steal a my more, at least Brown won't

If he was charging maybe he put his down while running at the cop. This cop had an unblemished record according to the press. This thug did not! Right there common sense should kick in and lead to the assumption that MB probably caused the whole thing! You and those racist at CNN and MSNBC need to stop flapping your gums and have another look at the new Data that's coming in from the investigation. OH wait those facts are lies created by the cops right? Yeah right just like your brothers in Africa think Ebola is a Hoax! You primates are impossible!
i'm white not a racist at all and used to think cops were quite fair and honest perhaps many of them are.Recently ive had cause to feel very differently.I had a fairly clean record and needed a break---guess what------ no breaks----there is not a mean streak in me at all but .whenever a cop gets in trouble I always have to ask if he (she) is one that maybe gave someone a break once in a while or ?????? signed: very very disappointed

Get this investigation over quickly so we can get this cop back out on the street fighting crime.

This black thug is dead because of his own stupid, thuggish ways. He fought the law, and the law won. The world's a better place without this Neanderthal terrorizing the public. Time to move on.

<quoted text>Saw this video also, but here's the problem Dumbo - read carefully now;

At 6'4", the one of two head shots entered the top of the victims head - this disproves the rushing stated by this single person, since at that height, how can he rush while on his knees? Dr. Madden, who spoke less than 1 hour ago live, also stated no gun residue was on the victims body. He stated the officer had to be a minimum of 2 to 3 feet away, maybe more.

So explain how a bullet enters the TOP of a skull, exits the right eye socket, and a 6'4" man was supposedly rushing the cop.

The forensics tell a different story Dumbo.
The body that is reacting to several shots might do anything, however the families requested specialist said all shots came from the front. I will tell you my guess being an expert with many weapons. If I was rapid firing at a person charging and one shot entered their eye, they would fall forward causing the next round to hit the top of their head. The report backs my theory. His face was severely skinned and lacerated as would happen when running hard then falling forward with momentum.

<quoted text>T.I believe that the evidence chain has been broken.Too many autopsys have destroy evidence.We don't know how MB's body was handled.One thing that isn't mentioned is that the officer needed medical attention,which indicates MB had assaulted a police officer.So could have the"witness".I don't mind an interesting discussion.Thanks!
The second autopsy that was done by the family was completed after the body was embalmed. This could affect any evidence and cause confusion.

What a nice, shiny sweet little naïve world you live in.
Of course there are in every force in America. Chicago and NY are known for their graft.
