      when HE was 18?

      How many of his neighbors and teachers and friends and family and, aw heck, anybody else who wanted to see their name in the paper, would have said about 18 year old Darren.  (Please remember, if you make your statement as wild and shocking as possible ['He might have been on PCP' -- Pat Robertson] it stands a much better chance of making the article.  Why? BECAUSE IT SELLS PAPERS

      Hey NYT IRT (Inflamatory Reporting Turkeys) -- Investigate Darren Wilson's background as a teen, whydoncha?

      Officer Wilson's 'youthful indescretions' should have no bearing on this case -- NYT Future Statement on it's independent Darren Wilson 'investigation'
      It is sad that we will not have the opportunity to use that quote with regard to Mr. Brown.

      I AM aberrant data!

      •  personally, I'd say (0+ / 0-)

        the officer's history is far more relevant than the victim's - just look at the history of violence in George Zimmerman's past prior to killing Trayvon Martin.
