    VerbalK you are correct. I just checked pictures and it is my mistake in making that comment. But it isn't the same guy. Michael had a full head of hair and this guy appears to be bald.

      is a dangerous drug.  You can support your cause against police brutality, and also acknowlege that the victim is not someone you would nominate for a good citizen award.

      •  I could if (0+ / 0-)

        I could if I knew the facts.  The robbery appears to be a fact.  The circumstances about the shooting are not clear.  I certainly am not willing to blindly accept the comments of the guy who helped him rob the store or people who might already hate the police.  I would like to know more before I believe I have a cause against police brutality.  Do I think such a thing exists? Of course.  Just watch the "cops" show and you can see people being slammed to the ground to be handcuffed while cops scream quit resisting when no such thing is happening.  I just want facts first.
