What If???

As the Ferguson MO. debacle continues to spiral out of control I have a couple of what if's

o What if once all the FACTS are sorted out and it is found that Mr. Brown had culpability that directly contributed to his demise?

o What if the raw conversation captured is a more accurate representation of what occurred that night?

o What If the perception vs. the reality are two entirely different accounts?

o What if the looting, robbing, burning, rock throwing, shots fired were based on a flawed depiction of the incident? Does it get chalked up to "My Bad..." and did this un-civil behavior bring any clarity?


If I was in that situation I would want the facts, not conjecture. The protests frankly makes themselves look narrow minded and in some cases ignorant. One of my fellow bloggers was called out due to his request for "his people" to start being part of the solution instead of the angry mob mentality. No one wants to address elephant in the room; the fact that with all of the "injustices" penetrated by "whitey" The black community self-destructs from with-in and the protests completely detract from a common cause or true search for justice.

So, as this continues to unfold I ask again; What if the FACTS totally discredit the perceived circumstance?

Will that also be construed as a "Us vs. Them" issue? Ironically some of the back officers have heard the sentiment of FU Ni****R. so which is it? a police issue, a race issue, or a tragic circumstance.

The other derivative is that an onus is placed on law enforcement to go out of their way to charge the officer involved to attempt to deflect the current accusations. My fear is that if it is determined that it was a "justified" shooting the response will be to riot more.

Violence can never be the answer.

what makes it so bad is the woman that claimed to see the actions happen that started all of this, made a video of the officer standing over the body while calling it in. she said it proves he was shot in the back while on the ground. but in her video you can hear two other people talking saying the kid charged at the cop. so as it looks as of now, the cops story matches the two witnesses heard in the tape, and the two autopsys. and all of it says she lied. no shots were from his back.

I think he was just scared. Nobody knows how they will really react in that situation until it happens. Not to mention after 4 shots he was still charging. I would be scared too

The other pachyderm in the room is the sad reality that Brown was a "good kid" at the wrong place at the wrong time. The facts continue to mount that this was not a wanton shooting by the police. I do concur that it may be an instance of excessive force however; Brown still had the ability to respond to the commands provided by the officer. If he would have done so this would probably be a much different story. Regardless the loss of life is always a tragedy but the emotion needs to be stripped away in order to reach an objective conclusion. No one wants to admit that their loved one may have had something to do with the circumstance but at the end of the day; it usually does...-
