Au contraire mon ami, my solutions of mandatory body cams is gaining popularity, and calls for grand jury investigations on cop shootings seems popular too.
Why such a fuss over shootings by cops but not civilian against civilian? There sure seems to be a hell of lot more black people getting shot and killed when there arent cops around (chicago) than with cops. Why is that apparently OK?
who said it was o.k.? perhaps you've missed some other threads and discussions. do you not hold police officers and law enforcement to some type of standard? protect and serve, perhaps? to follow the law they are sworn to uphold? do you think shooting of unarmed citizens should go unquestioned?
Is it going unquestioned?
BTW Are you ready to admit Big Mike robbed the store and violently assaulted the clerk?
i never said he did not steal cigars…i said that the video alone was not conclusive and alone it was not proof he stole cigars. ffs the majority of what some of you are willing to take as fact straight out of your imagination was obscured by the crap on the counter. you believe he stole because you want to believe he stole, not because that video proves he stole. geeze you are dense.
and no, i would argue that he did not violently assault the clerk…i have already stated that i would consider that simple battery…he shoved the clerk.
From an article in the Washington Post -
A partially redacted witness report in the packet given to media – which did not state who provided the information – said that a woman inside the store came out of the bathroom during the altercation.
She told police she saw Brown tell the store employee that he and his companion wanted several boxes of cigars from behind the counter.
“As [redacted employee name] was placing the boxes on the counter, Brown grabbed a box of Swisher Sweet cigars and handed them to [Dorian] Johnson who was standing behind Brown,” the report stated. Johnson has said in interviews that he was with Brown when he was killed.
The witness said that the store employee then told Brown he had to pay first, and then Brown reached over the counter to grab more packs of cigars and turned to leave the store.
According to the witness account, the employee called 911 and attempted to block Brown from leaving by standing in front of the door.
“That is when Brown grabbed [redacted employee name] by the shirt and forcefully pushed him back into a display rack,” the report said.
The police report goes on to state that surveillance video from the store shows Brown and Johnson entering the store before Brown hands the pack of Swisher Sweets to Johnson.
“An apparent struggle or confrontation seems to take place with Brown, however it is obscured by a display case on the counter,” the report stated. “Meanwhile, Johnson sets the box he was handed back on the counter.” (link)
