    Even if you took Jessee out of the picture, the underlying problem is the world view of the people seeking “justice for Mike or justice for the officer.” Some “justice” is just plain revenge. When you love revenge more than the Truth, it does not matter who is there to stir it up. Anytime justice in the present is mixed with justice in the past, there is going to be either overkill or under kill. Two wrongs don’t make a right and dead people can not get justice in the same way as a living person in the here and now. That is what is wrong with affirmative action. Affirmative action, a special case of social justice, is getting a benefit for someone who was not directly harmed by punishing innocent people who were not even there either. The real purpose of Affirmative Action was to retain Black votes for the Republican Party, not to do justice. It failed and it is still failing.

    Why couldn’t there be volume change of materials under the crack that forced both sides of the crack upward? Without a lot of man made objects on both sides of the crack, it would be hard to detect. A super GPS system could decide if there was some kind of movement in elevation. Next time it rains watch to see if the runoff pattern is different. I suspect it will be a long time before a lot of rain is seen in those parts.

    Dr. Baden said he had a gash on his hand, I presume it was the right hand. It could have been a bullet wound but I don’t think the autopsy drawing showed the hands or the orientation of the hands.

    CNN says that there is no badge cam or dash cam.

    I think the police began shooting mentally ill people after the Liberals let them out of mental institutions just in case their rights might be violated. Their right to be free became their right to live under a bridge.

    On a subliminal level this controversy sends a message that after fifty years, since the prosecutors father was killed by a black man, the white prosecutor has not had enough time to evolve into a more tolerant and wise human being. Furthermore it prejudges the prosecutors ability to evolve, presumably based on his race. Obama evolved on gay marriage in just a few years showing the superiority of the black man to evolve.

    CNN is reporting that there are no videos because the police department is so broke buying all of that military stuff, they did not have enough money left over to buy a badge cam or dash cam.

    I think it would be reasonable to take Dr. Baden ‘s public statement into consideration that declared that the four shots to the arm/chest were survivable but the ones to the head were not to mean that the shots to the head were most likely the last two shots taken. I really did not understand fully the autopsy sketch that showed entry and exit locations. It seems like an entry on one side of the arm would result in an exit hole on the other side of the arm but those wounds were not shown on the right side of the drawing. Did that mean the arm bone/bones stopped the slug? Baden seemed to be aware of x-ray evidence and somehow got a bullet count of the slugs that stayed in the body How can a slug go through a skull, emerge from the eye area and re-enter the body but not go through an arm? I’ll see this on mythbusters before the grand jury gets it.

    Never let gun control nuts have that much power. They will abuse it by trumped up and over charged cases as we see in New Jersey.

    When the Jihadis come to America and start shooting up malls, where do you think they will start, Texas or New York, Florida or New Jersey, Illinois or Arizona, California or Nevada? They are going to go where the gun laws are strictest. They will go where people are the most vulnerable, like Maryland and DC.

    Anybody who is so foolish to think that a registry is a major protective asset is probably crazy enough not to believe in the right of self protection. Your new neighbor is on the list? What are you going to do…write a letter to the editor? Are you going to turn into George Zimmerman and be the community watch person spying on your neighbor just to be sure he or she will not re-offend? So what if the person is a knife offender or a club offender but he/she is not on the list? If your neighbor is a gun offender, are you going to get one in case you need parity? How does this registry promote public safety? I think I could make a better case for having a DUI registry.

    States signed up for a pig-in-a-poke. They were promised money and agreed to take the money from the Porkulous Bill before the standards were ever fully developed or sold to the local parents and school system. I don’t see anyone demanding to know why the last set of standards did not work called No Child Left Behind.

    Coming up with your own conclusions is ok but it is better to come up with the right conclusions. We are avoiding the need to arrive at decisions based on absolutes. Is it OK if I don’t believe in slavery or the Holocost? Maybe that Armenian Genocide was just a few rogue agents going from orphanage to orphanage poisoning children of murdered Christians. Maybe Hamasholes are the real freedom fighters and the aggressors are in Israel. Victims can’t be war criminals because they are committing social justice. The common core version of history presumes an insulting and perpetual lack of sophistication among the students. This attitude comes from a natural bent toward elitism and opportunism among our alleged betters.

    I think there may have been “too many shots” because of the trauma to the officers eye. Marksmanship can suffer when the eye has been traumatized especially the dominant eye. I don’t know which eye was Wilson’s dominant eye but I know that shooting a pistol well with only one untraumatized eye takes a lot of specialized practice. When there is some one trying to stop you from using the gun at the same time, it has to be even more difficult.

    No peace with the Hamassholes until they give up the rest of their rockets. If Israel does not keep up a blockade, they may go to another Muslim country like when Saddam sent his jets to Iran.

    As long as there is Wi-Fi in the rooms, you can have whatever you want.

    The reason Gideons started putting Bibles in Motels was that in the wake of the 1906 Panic, record numbers of people were killing themselves in hotel/motel rooms. The suicide rate was and still is at an all time American record because of business failures due to the difficulty in moving credit from farm to processing businesses in a reliable manner. That Panic created the “need” for a Federal Reserve System or at least was the psychological and emotional motivator. The US suicide rate is hard to determine in 1907 but there are partial records for urban areas, mostly in the east. It could be at least two percentage points higher than any other time in American History(when records would be kept of such things. A free Bible was a free chance that someone might read one just before shooting themselves and change their mind. The motel staff loved the idea. The police don’t clean up the blood and brains. The management thought it was worth a try because it meant more room availability.

    No Truth, No Justice

    I don’t think the cloths are going to help much. According to the video before Brown was shot, he was wearing a short sleeve shirt and a red hat. Some of the wound locations had no material over them before the injuries happened. If the bullet passed through the brain, I would not expect the shirt to catch very much gun powder residue. What happened to the hat. If there was no altercation with the officer, the hat should have been in place, maybe with bullet hole in it, but, I saw in a video a similar hat laying on the street.
