    So. "Mike Brown 'Bum Rushed' A Cop With A Drawn Automatic Weapon", Say Wilson Supporters?

     
    Would you 'bum rush' a cop who had his automatic weapon drawn and pointed at you?
    Would you slam a cop back into his car when he tried to exit his vehicle?
    Would you struggle to get a gun from a cop?
    And if you succeeded, what would you do with the gun?
    What do you think would happen to you when they found you and filed charges, prosecuted, and threw you in jail?
    For how many years?
    Wasn't this kid starting to college the next day?

    Maybe Michael Brown should have taken some advice from actor, Clint Eastwood in his movie, "Unforgiven", when asked about shooting an unarmed man:
    "He should have armed himself."
    The irony is that Washington wants to pass gun laws to restrict who can have them.
    Fat chance of that happening anytime soon when we see what just happened in Ferguson, MO.
    Maybe we all need guns to protect ourselves from those that are supposed to protect us.
    A recent caller to a radio station said that she knew what had happened the day that Darren Wilson murdered Mike Brown.
    Coincidently, this 'friend' of Wilson's story is collaborated by a 'source' who claims to know what Wilson's police report says, before the report has been released to the public.

    Police in Ferguson, MO, were able to release the video tape of a strong arm robbery at a convenience food store and now, a toxicology report that suggests the Mike Brown's' reefer madness' could be the reason for charging in the face of automatic weapon fire, but couldn't release Officer Wilson's official report of the shooting, except to Face Book supporters who were inclined to call local radio stations.
    The radio caller says that Mike Brown charged Wilson with his head down (explains the hole in the top of Brown's head, right?) and Officer Wilson, fearing for his life, started shooting until the threat had been eliminated.
    This threat response of policemen is conveniently explained by another psychologist that says it's a natural response of a policeman that can't deal with stress.

    "Michael Brown’s toxicology report allegedly indicates that the teen fatally shot by Ferguson police office Darren Wilson had marijuana in his system. A Washington Post report citing an individual “familiar with the county’s investigation” said local medical examiner Mary Case found the 18-year-old had recently been smoking pot."

    "The events in Ferguson, Missouri over the past ten days mark a political turning point for the entire country. The immense scale of social inequality, the ruthlessness of the financial aristocracy, the disintegration of American democracy—all have been exposed in the execution-style police killing of unarmed eighteen-year-old Michael Brown and the vicious crackdown on protests that erupted in response."

    " George Orwell once wrote: "Men can only be highly civilized while other men, inevitably less civilized, are there to guard ... them."
    Well, it looks like we'll remain 'uncivilized' for a while longer.
