You guess correctly.

Someone actually pointed out the similarities and the fact that he was only pepper sprayed, and his response was "Different time and different place."

How can you assault a police officer and being taken o afterwards?

You do know that whites get shot by police too, don't you? And in situations which range from genuinely questionable to outrageous.

They are?

The second one is totally reasonable to the degree that nothing else need be said. The first one is true in that Wilson was just doing his job and his job is of importance to the community, and this remains the case regardless of the rioting and the looting (not to mention the white shitlib protesters).

There is always a certain level of collective responsibility in these stories..

The They and us mentality is exactly what is happening now (looting and so on)...

There is no excuse for the looting by the way..

A guy stole a box of cigarillos which is theft but the Policeman chased them and shot him with 6 bullets...

A bit of common sense here.

Was it really worth the death of a young robber ,nights of destruction and unrest, more mistrust between the two communities, more tension somewhere else in the country creating potentially more Fergusons?

Think about it two seconds.

The officer could have called back up or many better different options than creating that very explosive situation.

He has a duty to the community .

Robbery is not really a big deal, the laws against it are barely worth enforcing. Not worth putting the robber's life in jeopardy by trying to arrest him.

The 'us and them' mentality, which is primarily responsible for the rioting and looting, was created by the media, with certain politicians and assorted prominent figures fanning the flames.

When Officer Wilson was faced with the situation that day, future media-generated, selective outrage and the irrational response of the 'community' shouldn't have been a factor in the decisions he had to make. I'm not going to go over the actions the officer took as they are well established (and in my opinion he acted with reasonable force towards a genuine threat), but I will say that a single police unit should be enough to handle the situation and it seems that calling for backup should be unnecessary to apprehend a suspect. (Although I don't know what the actual protocol is).

Thugs who behaved as Brown did simply shouldn't be a part of civilized society, but they exist and it must be a very difficult and stressful job to try and police that sort of environment. I couldn't do it and therefore I find it hard to judge harshly those who do.

By the way I'm not a power worshiper and in my experience the police force can attract bullies and egomaniacs and the American police is definitely far too militarized.

So you're saying that the police should ignore the opportunity to apprehend a robbery suspect on the basis that said suspect probably has poor impulse control and will try and kill them? Just leave them to it then or call in the cavalry?

If he called for more cops there's a chance they could be in an accident on the way and kill someone. Not worth it.

So the responsibility for this whole shitfest is with the cop? You want common sense? Don't fucking steal shit. Was it worth a box of cheap smokes to lose your life over and cause all this destruction?

Is shooting that Cigarillo thug is worth millions of pounds of damage, potential rioting all around the country ,worsening of community relations over that stupid box of cigarillos???

Ask the people the riots destroyed their businesses and possessions.

He already shot him once and the guy was escaping...

When you bear arms ,you carry a lot of responsibility with you especially in that set of circumstances.

They would have been arrested a few minutes later and nothing would have happened..

That is common sense.

Is that box of Cigarillos worth millions of pounds of damage and your life? Not committing strong arm robbery is common sense.

Common sense is also:

Not punching a cop.
Not reaching for a cop's gun.

He would have been arrested if he had a) not punched a cop and b) not grabbed at a cop's gun.

As to the bolded do you really think it was remotely possible for the cop to know the shitfest that would result? That's stupid even for you.

Since when is shooting in (ostensible) self defense tantamount to issuing justice? There's no "worth," or even punishment. It's a consequence.
