And you want the cop to stand charges before the investigation is complete,
I DO want the lickspittles to stop this stupid uninformed upport of an event that, from its appearance is certainly not a proportional punishment now is it?
You've ignored the Glenn Becks clamoring to NOT try him by merely reversing the charges --good, LAZY, but good.
Lazy? Why am I compelled to comment on what Glenn Beck has to say? I don't pay any attention to him, he's not in this forum, and you didn't request anyone comment on his remarks. It seems from your posts that you want to see the cop indicted based upon how the incident appears to you; based on limited information. You wouldn't be alone and that's what I wished to comment upon.
Like all of these incidents, we don't know all the facts, and there have been plenty of times (not solely having to due with charges of police brutality and misconduct) when the initial reporting has created a picture that "appears" to be something it is not. The Duke Lacrosse Team rape incident comes to mind as does the Tawana Bradley hoax. In both cases there were lots of people getting their hanging ropes out of the closet before the investigations were complete, and in the former, the DA was leading the lynch mob.
These rushes to judgment fueled by prejudice, media stoked hysteria, and prosecutorial aggression are not limited to cases where there is a racial component. If you know anything about the Memphis Three case, you'll probably agree that it was a complete travesty of justice that ruined the lives of three white teenagers, and almost ended the life of one. The certainty that these three "white trash" kids were guilty of Satanic ritual murders was widespread.
It's a damned good thing that "innocent until proven guilty" is a foundational element of our legal system, because left to our own impulses, our judgments tend to be the exact opposite.
Unless I missed something, there is no video, with sound, that clearly shows what happened here from the moment the two came into contact until one was laying dead. The "appearence" of what happened has been blurred by conflicting "evidence," the accounts of possibly unreliable witnesses, and comments made by people with an agenda other than seeing that true justice prevails.
The fact that Brown was shot six times does "appear" to be an excessive response, but cops aren't taught to shoot to wound, they are taught to shoot to stop and shooting to stop usually means shots that kill. If the cop was warranted in shooting Brown (a possibility that remains unproven), it doesn't really matter whether he fired once or twice or six times.
Darren Wilson is a person. He's not a symbol for white racism. He is in hiding now because of the very real possibility of some self-styled vigilante deciding the hell with a trial, the cop needs to be executed. If he is guilty of a crime he should be convicted and sentenced, but what I'm afraid is shaping up here is Darren Wilson being tried for the abuse African-Americans have received at the hands of police. Folks can cite statistics all day long about disparate treatment, but every time a black man is arrested, or injured or killed by a cop, racism and/or excessive force is not at play.
We heard a lot of comments along the line of "Michael Brown was killed because he was guilty of the crime of being a black man." That may be the case here, but whether or not it is, Darren Wilson shouldn't be convicted and sentenced for being guilty of the crime of being a white cop in a community that believes it has been unfairly treated by the police.
And, you didn't answer my question: Do you want to see him indicated and prosecuted before the investigation is complete?
