You really are a spreader of lies and misinformation! As more information becomes known that supports the police officer, you just continue to adjust your lies. Four shots hit his arm, and it's hard to stop someone at 290 pounds charging at you from 35 feet away with an arm hit. Two head shots would, however logic lacking in your case, would go to show the arm shots were the first shots. Police are trained to hit center mass, not to shoot at a raise arm. Google 'IJReview' for a honest eye witness explaining what he seen. Course in your case, blind as a bat you are, will make no difference.
"How many times do you have to shoot an unarmed man"? Easy one Craigie, as many times it takes to stop a 290 pd thug charging at you.
It was so funny watching Craiging pumping his bike for all it's worth wearing flip flops, with a cop car trying to catch up. Craigie always been a big fan of KFC, but only if it's free. He really should be in the circus as I never seen such a balancing act.
Sorry Craigie, my post of you being black was not quite accurate. I forgot when you had the revelation that you were 10% Indian. I believe it was your blood line traced back to the 'Blackfeet' tribe. Perfectly understandable when you think about it.
This is true, however Craigie now has a new TV and ten buckets of Kentucky fried chicken! This would have never been possible is not for Michael Brown. I seen a picture of Craigie on FB, on his bicycle trying to balance a 50" TV and ten buckets of chicken on his way back to Columbus. . Really funny and got 500,000 hits so far. Less
This corroborates an account of the event given by a friend of Officer Darren Wilson:
Well, then Michael takes off and gets to be about 35 feet away. And, Darren’s first protocol is to pursue. So, he stands up and yells, “Freeze!” Michael and his friend turn around. And Michael taunts him… And then all the sudden he just started bumrushing him. He just started coming at him full speed. And, so he just started shooting. And, he just kept coming. And, so he really thinks he was on something.”
It’s far too unlikely that these two accounts are similar accidentally, having been from such disparate sources. The seeming witness in the background conversation is speaking with detail about the tragic shooting, and in a manner that runs contrary to the widespread version. Those who watch the video need to judge for themselves if the witness sounds reliable (but he would seemingly have nothing to gain by telling such a story.)
A third piece of the puzzle would be the toxicology report. If there happens to be anything found that might explain how Mike Brown might have been shot and kept advancing toward the officer, then the defense becomes even more believable. Unless someone is emotionally invested in an alternative narrative to the extent that one might ignore plain facts.
A video is out now from the hallway looking out over Brown laying in the street. The conversations just before and right after is a totally different story than Browns pal was saying. The people talking didn't know or see someone with a cell phone.
Google 'IJReview' as I can't put up the link. They are talking about how the cop was running after Brown, Brown turned around and did a "bums rush' towards the officer.
If the internet has it, I am sure Eric Holder has it. OF course then it will get erased no doubt.
"eyewitnesses said the shooting was unprovoked"! Of course, the so called witness was with Brown when he robbed the store is creditable to you. He wouldn't have any reason to lie now would he? You conveniently over look the police reports of a struggle in the police car for the officers gun. Perhaps the fact at lease one shot was discharged in the car. The real fact the officers head was swollen afterward as I am sure police photo's will confirm.
Your about as objective as you were with the Trayvon Martin case. I am sure your also convinced OJ Simpson didn't hack two people to death too. Being black Craigie, don't mean you have to flush your brain down the toilet (if not already done so).
As five armored tactical vehicles approached the crowd, officers spoke through a loudspeaker: "You are in violation of a state-imposed curfew. You must disperse immediately. Failure to comply may result in arrest."
Highway Patrol Spokesman Lt. John Hotz initially said police only used smoke, but later told The Associated Press that they also fired tear gas canisters. He said of police efforts: "Obviously, we're trying to give them every opportunity to comply with the curfew."
As officers put on gas masks, a chant from the distant crowd emerged: "We have the right to assemble peacefully." A moment later, police began firing canisters into the crowd. Protesters said their faces and eyes had been burned. Others screamed in pain.
Jayson Ross, who was leading the protesters toward police, said: "They got guns. We got guns. We are ready."
The curfew had been announced by Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon Saturday afternoon in an effort to prevent the violence and looting that had marred earlier protests over the August 9 death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. The governor also declared a state of emergency.
Early Sunday, Johnson said that authorities were not aware of any looting that had occurred during the night.
The reason being Mr Johnson, is no one is answering 911 calls from store owners for help!!
State Police seemed having to use same tactics as the Police Department did, and got roasted for it. It's that just special.
Police fired smoke and tear gas canisters early Sunday in an effort to disperse several dozen protesters who defied a curfew in a St. Louis suburb where a black teenager was fatally shot by a white police officer last week.
The Missouri Highway Patrol said that seven people were arrested and one man had been shot at the site of the protest in Ferguson, Mo. Missouri State Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson said that the shooting victim was in critical condition and had been rushed to a hospital by protesters.
Johnson said the use of tear gas was precipitated by concerns about people who'd broken into a barbecue restaurant and taken position on the roof overlooking approaching police. Another concern involved a man flashing a handgun who appeared in the middle of the street as armored vehicles approached. Johnson says someone fired at a patrol car, but no officers were injured.
"I was disappointed in the actions of tonight," Johnson said.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that St. Louis Alderman Antonio French, who has taken part in demonstrations all week, told reporters that the police's tactics "were a lot better" than they could have been. French also said that he had attempted to convince people to honor the curfew, but some "didn't want to be told to leave."
French later tweeted, "I can tell you firsthand that some of the people that remained tonight were armed. Were ready for a fight. And wanted to injure police." ( Oh no, can't be true)!!!
"No the officer deserves to have the evidence weighed"! Yes Craigie, we can see how open minded you are. Sort of like the Trayvon Martin 'evidence' you weighed before.
"officer to call a report in asking for back up"? Oh sure, you call for back up when you see two blacks walking down the middle of the street with a box of cigars. The one witness who was with Brown, when Brown robbed the store is credible? He was the one who started with the hands up story, later someone else came up with the same thing. Surprise!! This is hardly 'evidence' until proven both are not lying. Your skill at gathering 'evidence' has always been a joke.
Oh Hillary is running for sure!! You could bet the farm on it. I would give her 40/60 her favor to win over any other Democrat. She is trying her best to move to the center without getting her liberal following mad at her. Problem she's having, they don't find humor in her bashing Obama. In the election for President against any Republican I give her maybe 45/50 against winning. She's a very polarizing figure, harsh, not good on the campaigning, plus has a bunch of baggage.
"And why was the body left unattended for 45 minutes"?? Because it has to be left for a team to investigate, take photos, etc. Only one eyewitness so far is the same person who was with Brown when he strong armed and robbed the store. Less than worthless. The officers name was disclosed yesterday. " Most police officers don't use excessive force but a rogue few do". I agree with this, however NOTHING has been proven the officer was not in his legal right for deadly force.
Lastly, what has happen to the 'your innocent until proven guilty'? The people protesting seem to be all ready to push the needles into the officers arm without due process. As is stands we seem to be watching a 'black lynching' of a police officer on the basis of one highly questionable so called witness.
Michael Brown was portrayed as a kind, gentle 'giant' by friends and family, until the video came out that is. Brown was 290 pounds, 6.3 and not so gentle when he grabbed the store clerk by the throat and tossed him into the show cases. The police as soon as viewing the video knew who it was right away, thus one assume for good reasons. Pictures of Brown flashing gang signs might be one. Ten minutes later he encounter a policeman, Brown knowing he had just robbed and assaulted someone! Now just guess what's going through his head at that moment! Going to jail is what! Being 290 pounds, the officer is by himself, ((unaware the guy has just robbed and assaulted someone), Brown just raises up his hands to surrender for walking down the middle of a road??
His buddy at the store holding the box of cigars Brown just took, is so far the only witness being quoted at the shooting. How credible of a witness is that? As in the Trayvon Martin case, always another side of the story, and that's the right one. It won't be all that long coming out. For myself, I find it incredible to believe a police man will in cold blood shoot down someone for no reason, with his hands up, much less with a so call witness who was with Brown at the store he robbed.
Anger spurred by the death of a black teenager at the hands of white police officer boiled over again early Saturday morning in Ferguson, Missouri, when protesters stormed into a convenience store — the same store that Michael Brown was accused of robbing.
Police and about 200 protesters began clashing late Friday after another tense day in the St. Louis suburb, a day that included authorities identifying the officer who fatally shot Brown on Aug. 9. At the same news conference in which officer Darren Wilson was named, Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson released documents alleging that Brown stole a $48.99 box of cigars from the convenience store, then strong-armed a man on his way out.
Just before midnight, some in what had been a large and rowdy but mostly well-behaved crowd broke into that same small store and began looting it, said Missouri State Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson.
Yep, I am so angry I think I will break into a store and loot it!
