@16 Given the difference in size and strength between them I think what he did was a lot worse. Like Uncle Ben told Spiderman "with great power comes great responsibility."

I don't think domestic violence should be tolerated, but I don't see the point of taking away this guy's job. If he were, for example, a judge that would be one thing, but he's not he's a football player. It's only a game people.

@131 "State law is very clear that deadly force cannot be used against an attack with hands or fists."

Not in Missouri. You can read more about that here:

@118 Describing Wilson as a 'Hero Cop' was, I admit, a bit trollish. What I think happened was that Wilson ordered Brown and his buddy out of the street in a sarcastic and unprofessional way and that set Brown off and he then became so violent that Wilson had no choice but to shoot him. I suspect that the incident would have gone something like this:

Except that the person the officer talked down to was a big hulking thug instead of a petite college professor. If that's what happened then Officer Wilson would be in the clear legally, but still an asshole.

@109 The dictionary defines to rob as to "take property unlawfully from (a person or place) by force or threat of force." I think what Brown did meets that definition. One of the arguments used to assassinate the character of Hero-Cop Darren Wilson is that no person in his right mind would attack an armed officer w/o a weapon. I would argue that no person in his right mind would commit a felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison in order to obtain a box of cigars priced at $48.99. The fact that Brown did that minutes before he was killed shows that he wasn't acting rationally on the day he died. It makes the police department's version of events more plausible.

@105 Back @86 you wrote "And so far no one has alleged that Brown was armed, the prerequisite for posing a threat grave enough to justify deadly force." That clearly implies that you believe that the shooting was unjustified and therefor an abuse of power.

@99 What I said back @85 was that Sgt Hall's disagreeable Facebook comments were an understandable reaction to the way the media has portrayed Michael Brown's death. The fact that they have chosen to describe the incident as the shooting death of an unarmed black teenager instead of that of a violent robbery suspect shows a definite anti-cop bias.

@97 I think it was probably unwise for Wilson to pursue Brown instead of staying in his car and radioing for backup. That doesn't mean it was an abuse of power.

@95 Was Brown fleeing when he as shot?
