  •  Just because someone assumes (4+ / 0-)

    a shot connected doesn't mean the kid wasn't getting shot at. For all we know, the boy might have felt the bullet graze by close, and his body jerked in fear. The important point is at that moment, all witnesses said he turned around. It's interesting that most of them assumed he'd been hit, because they all agree that his body jerked around. Shots were being fired at him as he was running. That they didn't connect doesn't diminish the witnesses testimony because they all agree that the cop was firing at Michael. That's the important point.

    Now with the wounds in his arms, and palm, they look consistent with someone holding their arms up. Unless the defense is going to go for the ridiculous and say the kid was running at the cop with his hands up, which none of the witnesses corroborated. They all said the same thing. That he turned around, put his hands up and was subsequently shot.

    Now when we consider the fact that he was unarmed, all of this speculation is moot. The kid didn't have a weapon on him. There's no excuse for this.


    But the way this fucked up biased system works, the murderer will probably walk. They usually do.
