Jon Swaine: Wilson was entitled under Missouri law to use deadly force against Brown for two main reasons: if he believed that Brown posed him or others a threat of death or serious injury, or if he believed that Brown was trying to escape and that if he got away he would pose that same threat of death or serious injury. Neither of these fits accounts given to the media by Dorian Johnson and several other witnesses. What threat was Brown to others? When pursuing a suspect (petty theft) why shoot them? Does the injury justify use of fatal force? Why not shoot in the leg instead of head/heart?

"woe is me, mentality" LOL. Is that what all of those people think?
Bravo my friend!
Which autopsy? The St. Louis County Medical examiner one or the one conducted by Michael Baden? Michael Baden said “In my capacity as the forensic examiner for the New York State Police, I would say, ‘You’re not supposed to shoot so many times,’ ”
I have read the entire autopsy. How many times it takes to stop a thug from killing you! If Michael Brown had just gotten on the sidewalk instead of approaching Wilson's car and striking him in the head over and over he would still be alive today.
