If you watched the video, you know that the police opened fire on the victim within 15 seconds of getting out of their vehicle. That's not enough time to even assess the situation, much less make a proper decision. If they had not gone in with guns blazing, they would have realized that the victim wasn't threatening anyone. They had plenty of time to figure out how to use a non-lethal method to subdue him. But that's not the course of action those police officers chose. They chose to shoot first, ask questions later. That is not what the police are supposed to do in the United States of America. They don't exist to dole out street justice. They exist to apprehend people so they can face a judge and a jury of their peers. Every time the police kill someone, they have failed to do their jobs properly. The police failed. At the very least, the officers should be fired, losing all benefits.
You might be interested to know that Brown's autopsy found no evidence of a struggle (no bruising, scratches, etc). Brown allegedly hit Darren Wilson so hard that he broke the officer's face. Dealing that amount of force would cause anyone to bruise. So why were no bruises found? The simplest explanation is that Brown did not cause that injury to the officer (Brown did not have any sort of weapon). If Brown did not cause that injury, who did? Was Darren Wilson's face broken before the encounter with Brown? Did Darren Wilson inflict it himself? Did another police officer inflict it?I have no pity for these assholes. Michael Brown was a bully who had no respect for other people, leisurely stole property and pushed around a store clerk who was actually working for a living instead of being a thug. The protestors immediately determined the officer was guilty of wrongdoing without having all of the facts. They assassinated his character based on the fact that he was a white cop and the dead "victim" was black, then had the audacity to call it character assassination when footage was released showing Michael Brown's true character as he shoplifted and pushed a clerk around moments earlier. And this kid is being called a gentle giant. How can they even say that with a straight face? How 'bout gathering all the facts before rioting on nothing more than racial motivations. If the officer did sustain a swollen face in an altercation, maybe Michael Brown wasn't as compliant as his friends are claiming. What we know about Darren Wilson is that he's been on the police force for six years and has no disciplinary actions on his record. What we know about Michael Brown is that he was a hostile delinquent who had no regard for the law or other people. Put race aside and look at the facts.
