Unfortunately, to meet that standard, the policeman would have to wait until Brown killed him to take action that could result in Brown's death.Campfiregirl (and others), I totally believe that the potus, as well as Sharpton & Jackson jr are trying to keep racism alive.
I have made a complete 180Â° concerning the death of Brown.
I still believe him to be a thug or at least a thug impersonator. I acknowledge that he stole some tobacco & pushed around a store clerk while doing so. I also acknowledge he did not follow LEO instructions to get out of the street & then moments later seriously attacked the same LEO & tried to disarm him.
My question is: are any of the are any of the actions of the Thug Brown punishable by Death in a court of law?
Amd there is my rub. Thug Brown was not afforded his day in court. LEO Wilson will have his day in court.
He was /is trained for law "enforcement". What made him decide to exit his vehicle & confront Brown instead of waiting for backup?
Because the policeman did not shoot based on what the man had already done. He shot because he believed he was in danger at that moment and needed to stop Brown. Or at least whether that was a reasonable belief is what the grand jury will hopefully decide.What standard are you speaking of?
There is a HUGE difference betweenan arrest and a death.
When my ex was stalking me & my children, but staying beyond the spevified distance, I was told by the LEO & the county DA they could not make an arrest of what my ex might do.
Are the lives of LEO more important than a normal citizen?
