Any video available to back up the Police Union's claim?
Since when is evidence necessarily?

Forensic evidence has debunked the early reports that Michael Brown had his hands up in a "don't shoot" posture.

Yet the left's propaganda news networks, foot ball players and politicians continue with the "hands up, don't shoot" narrative.

Obviously, no evidence is required to substantiate a statement in Liberal America.

Judy Melinek, a forensic pathologist in San Francisco who reviewed the autopsy for the Post-Dispatch, told the paper that one of the officer’s shots hit Brown’s forearm and traveled from the back of the arm to the inner arm, which means Brown’s palms could not have been facing Wilson, as some witnesses have said. That trajectory shows Brown probably was not taking a standard surrender position with arms above the shoulders and palms out when he was shot outside the officer’s car, she said.
Did Michael Brown have his hands up when he was shot? - The Washington Post

I would be screaming for blood if the evidence didn't demonstrate a truth contrary to the media narrative. We know Brown was a thief and a thuggish 6+ foot tall 300 pound bully - we can see if for ourselves as he shoves a small shop keeper around. Blood inside Wilson's cruiser attests to the struggle that occurred there, conflicting witness statements, some of which were only given anonymously or by proven liars do not support the physical evidence.

Are we a nation ruled by law or a mob?

I find it terribly distasteful that anybody would cheer at these Police Officers being hit by a car….
That is just NOT how people should act in a civilized society…


I also find it terrible distasteful that the cops are killing people of all colors…
and YES…. Of course I know that it is even MORE serious for people of color…
Hell… Even RAND PAUL sees this…….

Senator Rand Paul on Ferguson: We Must Demilitarize the Police

When you couple this militarization of law enforcement with an erosion of civil liberties and due process that allows the police to become judge and jury—national security letters, no-knock searches, broad general warrants, pre-conviction forfeiture—we begin to have a very serious problem on our hands.

Given these developments, it is almost impossible for many Americans not to feel like their government is targeting them. Given the racial disparities in our criminal justice system, it is impossible for African-Americans not to feel like their government is particularly targeting them.

This is part of the anguish we are seeing in the tragic events outside of St. Louis, Missouri. It is what the citizens of Ferguson feel when there is an unfortunate and heartbreaking shooting like the incident with Michael Brown.

Anyone who thinks that race does not still, even if inadvertently, skew the application of criminal justice in this country is just not paying close enough attention. Our prisons are full of black and brown men and women who are serving inappropriately long and harsh sentences for non-violent mistakes in their youth.

How A Police Officer Shot A Sleeping 7-Year-Old To Death

Aiyana Stanley-Jones was sleeping in her home on the east side of Detroit on the night of May 16, 2010, when officers barged into the house. They were conducting a police raid in search of a murder suspect who lived at that address -- and being filmed for a reality TV show in the process -- when Officer Joseph Weekley accidentally fired his gun. What exactly caused him to fire is still a matter of dispute. But the shot killed Aiyana.


Deaf Man Fatally Shot By Florida Deputy After Allegedly 'Brandishing Firearm'

Plainclothes deputies encountered Edward Miller, 52, at a Daytona Beach towing company on Saturday afternoon following reports of an argument. Volusia County Sheriff Ben Johnson said Miller was "brandishing a firearm" outside when deputy Joel Hernandez and another unnamed deputy arrived.

Hernandez, 35, fired his service weapon, killing Miller, because he perceived a threat, a sheriff's office spokesman said.

Miller's 25-year-old son witnessed his father's death. He told the Ledger that his dad, who only had two percent of his hearing, was further impaired because his hearing aid was broken at the time. He denies that his father was a threat.

“I kept telling them that he can't hear them,” the 25-year-old, who's also named Edward Miller, told the Ledger. “I kept telling them he can't understand them.”



Big questions in cop's shooting of North Carolina teen Keith Vidal - CNN.com

A man calls 911 saying his family needs help. His wife is scared of their schizophrenic son, armed with a screwdriver. One, then two, then three law enforcement officers -- all from different agencies -- arrive. After the situation calms somewhat, according to the family, a tussle ensues.
What happens next?
In a case this week out of Boiling Spring Lakes, North Carolina, one officer responded by firing his gun, killing 18-year-old Keith Vidal, who was mentally ill.


Down Syndrome Man Goes to Movies, Ends up in Morgue - ABC News

Ethan, who had Down syndrome, enjoyed the film so much that he decided to go back to his seat for a second showing while his aide went to get the car to take them home. When he refused to buy another $12 ticket, off-duty police moonlighting as security guards allegedly tackled him in an attempt to eject him from his seat.

An hour later, the young man was dead from "asphyxiation by homicide," according to the medical examiner's report.

The case went to a grand jury, which declined to indict the three sheriff's officers involved in the Jan. 12 incident, according to the Washington Post.


---------------------------


It comes down to this….. Cops NEED to stop killing people…. This is such a rare thing to happen in other countries…
But… according to the numbers posted, over 400 people each year are killed by police…. and FAR TOO
many of them are either unarmed, or armed with a butter knife or screwdriver….

It is getting quite ridiculous….

I thought conservatives were supposed to be libertarians, yet you are all backing the police. Funny :D
All Libertarians are Conservative but not All Conservatives are Libertarian.

Do you understand and if not I will be glad to carry on this conversation because in Conservatism just like Liberalism you have different factions.

Libertarians are Libertarians.

I would not define a Conservative as: Pro Drug legalization, Pro Choice (many Libertarians are), Pro reduction of the military, Open Borders, etc.... There seems to be an enormous misconception as to what a Libertarian is.

What a stupidity! Typical behavior of idiots, who don't want to learn lessons of NOT to fight police unarmed and not wanting to acknowledge facts. They will get what they deserve.

The outrage isn't over the number of cases where police are wrong. The outrage is over the legal system's treatment of of those cases where police are wrong.
For whom are you speaking? You think the Browns and the Garners are not more concerned with the killing than the outcome?

There were witnesses, as the OP article plainly states. I guess witnesses are only to be believed when they agree with what you want to hear, huh.
witnesses still need to provide proof or they are NOT reliable.

hearsay doesn't typically hold up in a court of law...why should it here?
