Pictures of officer wilson do not show major injuries - so he shot a young black male multiple times

this is not what armed police officers should be doing.

Brown was not threatening anyone. No one else was in danger. So how did Wilson who purportedly called for backup get into a situation that he had to shoot an unarmed man multiple times.

the acceptance of this tragedy by so many is saddening and frightening and smacks truly of something more inhumane.

Punching the officer. Going for his weapon. Multiple witnesses saying he was charging officer at time of shooting. None of this now proof is hard to believe after watching his robbery of the store and treatment of the clerk that tried to stop him.

Have video proof of that. Witnesses say they saw him punching the cop through car door - this is all shortly after his robbery of the store. Lot of people WAY behind - or in many cases ignoring - facts.

so my question stands.

aside from fearing big black people, there is no evidence Wilson's life was in danger. he's either a coward, a racist, or a killer in my opinion. Maybe all three.

... and a push of the store clear doesn't represent a threat that deserves death.

I usually try to stay away from winger memes
