    I do think the 12 round indicates how much he feared for his life.

    Or how outraged he was that Brown didn’t follow his directions.

    So if some cop tells me to lie down in the back seat of his patrol car and spread my legs because he wants to rape me, I should do that? If he asks me if I enjoyed it should I lie? I don’t think so. If he tells me to take his gun and shoot myself I should do it quickly? I don’t think so. ALWAYS is a long, long time. I certainly hope that you don’t teach your children to ALWAYS do what cops or strangers tell them to.

    Dear Peter,

    Thank you for this post. Here are some possible answers to some of your many excellent questions.

    Why was the announcement held until 9pm EST? That put the announcement at the end of hours of tension allowed to build, after dark, and suspiciously smack in TV prime time.

    The announcement was most likely held up until after dark in order to make it easier for the provocateurs to light fires unnoticed, to break windows and urge others to loot, to be able to throw rocks, bottles, etc. and not be readily identified. Much easier to blame the protesters. Pushing the announcement well into prime-time TV ensured the maximum number of people across the nation would get to see the “violence” the authorities had been promising for weeks.

    Why was the prosecutor, Robert McCulloch, whose very title implies his task before a grand jury, seemingly so pleased with the result?

    And

    Given McCulloch’s Personal History, Which Creates the Appearance of Bias, Why Did He Handle the Case?

    Because of his “personal history” and because he is obviously a racist. He had all of the desired qualifications.

    Wilson made the following statements to the grand jury; were they seen by the jury as unbiased or self-serving, or simply truthful?

    Brown had the “crazy” look of a “demon… It looked like he was almost bulking up to run through the shots, like it was making him mad that I’m shooting at him,” Wilson told the grand jury

    Wilson described Brown as “very aggressive” and was convinced the teen was “gonna kill me.” “It was just like intense,” the officer said. “I’ve never seen anybody look that, for lack of a better word, crazy.”

    Wilson also stated: “He turned, looked at me, made like a grunting noise and had the most intense aggressive face I’ve ever seen on a person.”

    Gag-me-with-a-spoon, this reads much like a Hollywood b-movie script. How could they have listened to this and not laughed out loud? As for the “grunting noise”, Wilson must have incredible hearing abilities. Try hearing someone grunt from well over 100 feet away, outdoors in a city during daylight hours with all the attendant noise, while being totally stressed out from the previous couple of minutes fighting off that “incredible hulk”.

    Does this mean there are no democracies in the Middle East now?

    I rather think that there were never any democracies in the Middle East.

    Anyone ever heard of something called “infinity digital gangster enterprises”? Seems they/it has been hacking Craigslist for the past 6 hours or so. Why would anyone want to hack Craigslist?

    Women do not CAUSE men to be aroused. Men CHOOSE to be aroused and CHOOSE to rape. Do not blame the victims.

    Hey OB,

    Did you know this same diary is up, same title, with author of Oxdown diaries, with a distinctly different comment thread?

  • I see there are 2 identical diaries up about this, with same title, two different authors and two distinct comment threads.

    Dontcha know, tasers are for old ladies in wheelchairs and those handcuffed behind their backs.

    As I recall, the rationale for tasers was that it was less lethal, so cops wouldn’t need to use their guns so much. I guess just torturing folks just wasn’t fun enough.

  • Can’t wait to hear how “AFRAID FOR HIS LIFE” this cop was.

    Will the NRA speak out about this child’s right to bear arms?

    And of course, no one will be held accountable in any way whatsoever.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your situation. Our country is not a nice place to live for many millions of its citizens, and our government does not care. Very sad.

    Sincere condolences, Kevin. What a lovely tribute to your father.

  • Slightly off topic by very important:

    The latest update at 5:18pm from the Oregon Secretary of State’s office shows that measure 92 — label GMOs — is losing just 49.72% (for) to 50.28% (against). The measure is just 8300 votes short of passing. Ballots are still being counted. The best hope is in Multnomah County (Portland), which cast 300,806 ballots and shows 286,562 counted thus far with 62.37% for and 37.63% against.

    With 14,244 ballots still to be counted in Multnomah County, even just 60% of that could yield 8546 votes for, enough to pass. Keep your fingers crossed.

    Voter turn out in Oregon was something like 69%.

    I wonder where consumer protection guru Elizabeth Warren stands on this? Of course, this is part of the ‘war’ on drugs, so maybe she’s OK with it.
