“Earlier Sunday, Chief Jon Belmar of the St. Louis County Police Department said the incident started when a Ferguson officer encountered Brown and another male on the street near an apartment complex. One male pushed the officer into his police vehicle, Belmar said.
The men had a struggle inside the car, Belmar said, and at some point a man — it was unclear whether it was Brown — reached for the officer’s weapon. One shot was fired inside the vehicle.
The fight moved outside the squad car and Brown suffered fatal gunshot wounds about 35 feet from the vehicle, Belmar said. The second person has not been arrested, and police are not sure whether he was armed.”
Obviously the kid wasn’t “innocent”. But Buzzfeed hasn’t included this information in ANY of its articles because it loves to rile people up and divide, instead of reporting non-biased information.
And if you know anything about the way our policing system works in this country, then you know that our officers are all trained to ‘Shoot to Kill’. And that means using more than enough bullets to make sure that happens. Let’s be real here, anybody minding their own business and obeying the law isn’t going to just get blown away by a cop emptying a clip in them while walking down the street.
Let’s logically play this out. Police officer encounters two young guys. One young guy shoves him into the car and starts a tussle, reaches for the officer’s gun. Officer, reacts by shooting said guy, or shooting the innocent one who didn’t shove him into the car and reach for his gun? Obviously the first scenario makes more logical sense. And considering the other person involved didn’t even get arrested, I find it hard to believe that this young man wasn’t the one who shoved the officer and reached for his weapon.
But somehow, this has turned into a race issue, and looting and setting things on fire becomes justified? These two guys broke the law when they attacked a police officer.
