    This case of Michael Brown is rather clear cut, which is why the DOJ is doing its best to muck up the works.

    1. The 18-year old Brown was an adult. He is 6'4" and 300 lbs. (Much larger than the police officer.)
    2. Brown was photographed many times making gang signs.
    3. Brown robbed a convenience store of $50 worth of blunts before the incident. He is seen intimidating the shop clerk.
    4. The altercation between Brown and the police officer involved the officer's identification of the stolen property, the stolen blunts.
    5. Two eye-witnesses clearly state that Brown was going for the officer's gun.


    Initial reports from officer Wilson and two eye-witnesses were that he was in a direct physical confrontation with Mike Brown; a struggle for the officer’s firearm ensued; a single shot was fired inside the police vehicle which is suspected to have hit Brown; and additional shots were fired outside the vehicle as a consequence of the suspect resisting arrest.
    Now the DOJ and the media will do everything it can to make this a race issue. Why? Because Obama is terrified of losing the Senate and faux racism is one way to get the base away from the TV and out to vote in November.

    But make no mistake: the lesson of Ferguson is the same lesson as Sanford:

    If you attack someone and go for his gun, he will shoot you.
    If you attack someone and go for his gun, he will shoot you.
    If you attack someone and go for his gun, he will shoot you.

    I'm past caring. They're about to hang an innocent cop. The "victim" was 18, 300lbs, 6'4" and had just held up a convenience store. The officer had an unblemished record and had just received a commendation. None of that matters.

    Or as NJ posted in another thread.....




    Maybe my eyes are tricking me, but it looks like the person Brown intimidated in the convenience store was not white. He didn't look white. If so, what about that non-white victim?

    If he is gang affiliated, then what about the non-white victims he went after or would have went after?

    Or does killing black people only only matter if the person killing is white?

    He's Indian, so Joe Biden says that doesn't count.

    in fairness, Black kids throwing gang signs isn't actually proof that they're in a gang. It's become a cultural norm now, astoundingly, for people who live in the ghetto to go around throwing gang signs because it's somehow "cool." Until a Crip sees it, anyway.

    Clarice Feldman on the Trayvon et al template:
    http://americanthinker.com/2014/08/f...nd_sinjar.html

    In the first place, the media has a template that shapes the initial reports -- a template as false as it is incendiary. The slain young black man is always initially described as an honor student and a saint and is pictured as a very young, presumably fragile, boy. When the truth that he was something of a thug comes out and that he was quite a bit older and larger than pictured, the damage has already largely been done. Political figures rush in to make fair trials more difficult and prospective jury pools are invariably tainted. So it is here, where the slain man hardly fits the preferred media “narrative”. Michael Brown was over six feet tall (6’4” in some accounts; 6’6” in others) and around 300 pounds.)

    In the second place, the initial eyewitness accounts given press play are fatally flawed or contradictory. In this case, the first account is from Dorian Johnson, who admitted only after the police release of a video of the event that he was an accomplice of Brown’s in a strong-arm robbery just minutes before. His account of the cop trying to pull the 300-pound Brown through the window of his car strains credulity even before the robbery video shone a new light on the events preceding the shooting.

    In the third place, what the press describes as “civil rights protests” and “vigils” are unaccountably held in liquor and appliance stores and the looting and burning of the shops in the area are by some mysterious magical thinking supposed to show the moral rightness of the protesters’ cause. In fact, they only harden attitudes against them.

    In the fourth place, the press seems to think we’ve forgotten the way the Tawana Brawley, Duke LaCrosse, and Trayvon Martin cases which they hyped, and the Skip Gates incident fell apart under genuine, impartial scrutiny. Most of us over 15 are not so easily misled. (Indications from the continuing release of credible information suggest that this matter will follow suit in time.)

    In the fifth place, Obama pals Sharpton and Jackson, and Holder’s community agitators from the Department of Justice, succeed only in stirring up hatred and fattening the pockets of the bereaved and their lawyers at the expense of both the black communities they infest and the community as a whole. If these people cared about young black men they’d concentrate on the overwhelming and soaring number of black on black murders and on reversing the administration’s economic policies driving these young men further into poverty. ..

    Indians, like East Asians, are an Un-PC minority. Too many dare to be successful when racism is supposed to be "keeping them down". I've heard that Caribbean blacks are marginally PC for the same reason.

    I think Will Smith said it best in this clip from Men In Black at the 0:37 mark:
