Nor should you.  But, if there was a struggle for the gun, the struggle was over when the kid was 35 feet from the police car.  Why was he shot then?  And then shot, over and over again, that far away?

The cops are not letting out details because this looks bad for the cop.  Serious efforts are underway to put together a story that the public will buy, i.e., I shot him from 35 feet away because he was a big boy and still a threat.

I'm not even ready to believe that he was shot 35 feet away from the car. It's not unheard of for wounded people to be able to move some distance before collapsing. And reports also say that the officer had swelling on his face, so he might indeed have been been attacked in some way.

But it does look bad for the cop. Shooting multiple times when the kid wasn't armed?

Were there witnesses other than the kid who was with Brown? If not, I don't think we'll ever know what really happened. If the cop was really that wrong, he deserves a trial and probably jail sentence. But given that it's a racial incident of the worst kind, he's today's Zimmerman. Guilty. No trial necessary.

You're all making great points.  But....all the 'cop' wants to do is to get home safely. 

They have been conditioned to view the public as a potential threat. 

When they tell you to do something, and you not only don't comply, but you touch the officer...you're starting a chain of events you're going to regret.

I'm basing this on the current storyline of course.

If the real story line is that he was asking him/her to stop firing and he/she basically executed him, then 'Houston, we have a problem".
