    that would have given credence to the struggle for the gun in the car story.  Any wound to the officer would have been trumpeted by the police chief immediately.

    •  But they did -- some kind of arm wrestling (1+ / 0-)

      faux concept was tossed out there, but without actual anything behind it.

      So I assume he didn't QUITE hit himself with the bullet, but it was inside the car...

      •  I'm really puzzled by the gun struggle claim. (3+ / 0-)

        If the cop was right-handed (and admittedly, I do NOT know this, but it's probable given that most people are), his gun would be on his right hip.

        That means, in order to make a try for his gun, Brown would have to reach ACROSS the front of the cop, well into the car, grab for the gun and try to get it out past the cop.

        And think about what that would mean for where the gun was likely pointed.  If Brown had actually gotten his hands on the gun, it would have been pointed away from him, not towards him.  In a struggle for the gun, what is the likelihood that it got turned clear around out of his hands and pointed BACK towards him?  Without a single round striking the officer?

        And if one round did end up in the squad car, I'd definitely be interested in know where it hit, and on what trajectory.

    •  A man in Georgia shot himself in the hand (8+ / 0-)

      andkilled a woman across the street with the same bullet. She was a bystander. Weird, stupid things happen with gunz.
