I am aware of autopsy findings that do not corroborate a struggle for Darren Wilson’s gun. They suggest that Michael Brown was at least two or three feet away, or as many as 30. They indicate that either his back was turned or he was surrendering. They show that he was shot six to eight times, twice in the head (a double-tap kill shot.) Are you making up words to sound smart? What is theory analysis?
Also, I don’t have TV. I’m getting my information online from people who were actually there. I do believe dozens of eye-witness accounts, videos, live-tweets from people on the scene getting tear gassed and shot, that all corroborate each other. I don’t buy police accounts that took a week to be released nor do I think it makes sense to trust the word of a corrupt system that seeks to protect itself over the word of anyone else.
This case is not about the character of Michael Brown. This is about police doing the wrong thing — in gunning down a suspect when it wasn’t necessary, and in brutalizing anyone who raises their voice to ask why. They did the wrong thing and they are still doing the wrong thing. The justice system failed Emmett Till, it failed Trayvon Martin, it will probably fail Michael Brown, and who knows how many others after him.
Only 33% of white people say that the police did the wrong thing. Even the most liberal mainstream news outlets aren’t telling the whole story. I think you’ve got a little racial paranoia going on there.
And if me standing up for something I believe in, standing by a city that the American police and American military are burning to the ground to cover one murderous cop, makes my friends “dump” me, then I don’t need them and I don’t want them. I think you are disgusting and uninformed, and I think you can go fellate a cactus.
