  1. The lady who passed away was my uncles ex wife... her son had dropped her off while he went to park since it was raining. and this happened while he was parking his car. , he was able to get back to his mom before she passed away. please say a prayer for my uncle and his kids.

    I am so sorry. Prayers for all her family.


  2. How in the world did the poor woman get the car to come in at that angle? Feel bad for her (the people she hit too). My FIL was prone to doing that kind of thing when he was still driving. Never hit a person, but did take out a row of vans once.

    Looks like after she jumped the curb, she drove down through the breezeway.


  3. Now there's a formal Bar complaint fired against the whole McCulloch office, essentially. GJ transcripts were reviewed by a panel of folks, including a former judge and another lawyer, and issues were found that, they felt, warranted the complaint.

    "Attorney and former judge James R. Dowd and attorney Robert Ramsey reviewed the grand jury transcript – including evidence, witness interviews and testimony – before a group of seven citizens and attorneys – led by Christi Griffin, founder of the Ethics Project – filed an 11-page complaint with the Office of the Chief Disciplinary Counsel in Jefferson City, Missouri."

     

     

    Christi Griffin had her own license pulled for 3 years in 2007.

     

     

     


  4. So, what you're saying, is that there were no credible witnesses, some speculative forensic evidence, and a dead kid. Sounds like no reason for a trial to me!

     

     

    mrnn

    No, that's not what I'm saying.

    Just off the top of my head, aside from a couple of minor details, witness #26 seemed credible, (he/she stated the police car wasn't an SUV) This witness stated that when Wilson was chasing after Brown, he brought the gun up and she heard him tell Brown 2 or 3 times to get down. Brown stopped and turned. She believes he put his hands up, but only briefly. He then put his arms down and started running towards Wilson. That's when the officer started shooting.

     

    There was also the young boy who was in his room playing video games. He heard the commotion, looked out the window and saw the officer chasing a man. He then looked away thinking the officer had put handcuffs on the man. He then heard shots, looked out the window and saw Brown lying in the street.

    It took a little bit of questioning for the detective to finally bring out that the boy looked away because they had run beyond another building and he could no longer see them. When he heard the shots and looked out, he saw Brown, which means Brown had to have advance BACK in the direction he had been running FROM.

     

    There was also another witness who stated that within just a minute or 2 of the shooting, he heard people telling others that the officer had shot the boy for no reason. That he had his hands up. This witness said this was not true.

     

     

    By the way, I want to correct myself in my previous post. The construction worker I was referring to was witness 33 not 36.


  5. According to the media, ONE person vouched for WIlson's story. That person has proven to be an incredibly flawed witness who likely was not even at the scene. Does that make the dozens of other witnesses, many of whom changed their stories, any more credible? No, not at all.

     

    What this all tells me is that the DA did an absolute hack job of giving the grand jury a clear and concise case to decide. So much so that one member of the jury, so far, has heard enough of the b.s. and wants to be able to speak about what a poor job the DA did. If that involves a book or a round on the TV News circuit, I don't care. I want to hear just how flawed this investigation was. If he's lying, you can rest assured knowing that other jurors will also speak up.

     

    As far as calling Michael Brown a violent and dangerous criminal, he didn't kill anyone. He didn't flee from the police. What we KNOW, beyond any reasonable doubt, is that he robbed a gas station and assaulted the attendant. We know he was jaywalking. None of those crimes, as awful as they may be, are crimes that earn the death penalty. He had weed in his system? Can't be arrested for that unless he had some on him or was driving.

     

    There were only a couple of videos from that day and they only caught the aftermath. The one that is often forgotten is the one showing a couple of white landscaping dudes up the street who were yelling "He had his trucking hands up!". Here is a delightful summary of Witness 40, the woman who would have been laughed out of a real courtroom but was presented as credible by the wonderful DA.

     

    mrnn

    No, Brown hadn't killed anyone YET, but according to the forensic evidence on the wound on his right hand, his blood INSIDE officer Wilson's vehicle as well as on Wilson's uniform pants, he sure tried his best to make Wilson his first.

     

     

    He wasn't killed for any of those reasons you mentioned. He chose to attack officer Wilson and in the process tried to get his weapon and again, this is supported by forensic evidence

     

    "Hell, if he's a first time offender he may have just gotten off with probation." (Too bad that didn't occur to Michael Brown)

     

    Have you read the landscapers testimony? I believe he was witness #36. Have you read where he claimed all the shots were to Michael Brown's chest and armpit and he saw the bullets exiting the back of his shirt (from 40-60 yards away) None of the 3 autopsies supported his claim.

     

     

    Speaking of laughing at Witness 40, aside from the landscaper, have read the interviews with witnesses 33, 35, 37, and 41? They made claims from Brown being on his knees beside the police car when Wilson shot him, to there being FOUR officers in TWO police cars, that Michael Brown punched the officer in the passenger seat of Wilson's vehicle-according to this "witness" he punched him because Wilson ran over his foot-to Brown, while on his knees with his arms in the air begging Wilson not to kill him and Wilson walking up anyway and shooting him point blank.

    Then of course there is the testimony from Crenshaw, Mitchell and Dorian Johnson.

  6. We've used Vonage for the past 2 years and the only problem we've had is there's a slight delay (maybe 2-3 seconds) in the conversations as well as a slight echo. But for the price you pay, those can be overlooked (at least in my opinion). We don't do international calls, so I can't give an opinion on that.

    My daughter has been using Ooma for the past several years and as far as I know has had no problems other than the few second delay.


  7.  

    Seriously, you are comparing a Army trained Special Forces jungle fighter living in a war zone to an overweight generation zero xbox playing urban dwelling barely out of high school street kid ?

     

    If you are then answer me this, in a fair fight who would come out on top The Hulk or Superman ?

    The human body can do some amazing things when pumped with adrenaline.

    Yes I am quiet serious.

     

    Anyone who would rush a police officer that is already in the process of shooting them is a moron. This guy had no criminal record, and was a college student. He was far from being the moron you seem to think he was, Am! He may even have been a bully, but not that big of a bully. Enough to charge at a gunman in the process of putting led in his body.

     

    Its more rare for a person, without suicidal tendencies, to charge a police officer who is already shooting him full of lead than it is for a Police Officer to kill an unarmed man.

     

    What did the officer think this shot up man was going to do; get some blood on him? If the kid was that close he could have used his head knocker, hid boot, or the gun butt; not a bullet.

    Or maybe he was so enraged he actually believed he could knock the officer off his feet.

     

    Rare but not unheard of.

    Remember- just a few minutes before, this guy had robbed a store and shoved the clerk when he attempted to prevent him from leaving. If it's true he was enrolled in college, he had a LOT to lose. Maybe he was confident of his ability to 'disable' the officer and no one would be the wiser to who the culprit was.


  9. Actually, the woman who drove up on the scene said that she saw Brown stop, turn around then begin to charge and then, went down on his knees. She is the one who said that he held his hands up when he turned around.

     

    She also stated that during the time before Michael Brown turned, raised his hands and charged, the officer was chasing him which suggests that his aim may not have been accurate if he was running toward the youth.

     

    I can say with certainty that I don't take any of the specific eyewitness reports as gospel.

    Tiffany Mitchell was the woman who drove up on the scene and I haven't seen an interview where she made that statement.

    Can you provide a link?

     

    Ms. Mitchell stated (in all 3 interviews I've seen) that after the initial gunfire, MB breaks away from the officer. "The officer gets out of his vehicle and pursues him as he's shooting his weapon. Michael jerks his body as if he was hit and he turns around facing the officer and puts his hands up and the officer continues to shoot him until he goes down to the ground."

     

    Nothing about charging nor going down on his knees. Notice she said the officer shot"until" MB went down to the ground not before as you are trying to suggest.

     

     


  10.  

    The ME was stated that the shot to the top of the head would appear to be made with the victim below (as on the ground or on the way to the ground) the shooter as the bullet entered the back portion of the skull and exited the front of the face.

    (That is not correct. What Dr. Baden stated was “It can be because he’s giving up, or because he’s charging forward at the officer")

     

     

     

    The story now becomes the one shot in the six shots in rapid succession followed by a pause and then four more.

     

    We also know there was another shot - unless the officer was lying - while the youth and the officer struggled in the car.

     

    Forensically, I'm having a hard time imagining how the ten shots equate to six wounds in that order knowing where the wounds were and hearing the rapidity of the reports. I.e. how quickly did the youth fall.

    (I don't think anyone has stated that every shot fired hit Brown)

     

    I do see from the crime scene photo that the kid had his pants down around his butt as is the style ... which tells me physically that if he was running, he sure wasn't running any direction very quickly. (And the length of time that it took officers to attend to youth, determine his death and then at least block the view was almost criminal in its lack of respect.)

    (There was a 4th "witness" (Emmanuel Freeman) who stated MB did not run. He mentioned the lowered shorts and the sandals as the reason. Well, we all saw the looters running from the stores with their sagging pants. They didn't have ANY trouble running.

    This "witness" also stated MB was on his knees looking up at the officer, begging him not to shoot when the officer shot him 2 times, walked up to his body and shot him 4 more times. Looked at his eyes, paused for a minute and shot him 4 more times".

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8BG-B50xHo

     

    That would mean MB would have had no less than 9-10 bullets in his body, but he didn't.

    Have you hear ANY other witness state he was on his knees?? I haven't, and if you have I will certainly check out any link you can provide)

    I read this, out of the repoert Am!

     

    From two feet away doesn't seem suitable, unless the kid was on his knees or something of the shut. The fatal shot went downward toward the brain. So, if the kid was shot from 2 feet away, he was not a threat, unless the cop was a yellow bellied chicken.

    (Doesn't sound suitable? Are you serious?? The ME has determined the shot to the top of his head was the final shot. If the man was charging the officer with his arms out and his head down, this could explain the wounds he received to his arms as "warning shots" and when it became clear those weren't stopping him, and it became clear the officer was about to be body slammed by a now VERY angry giant of a man, the final shot to the top of the head. )

     

    How is a kid going to hurt an experienced cop, from a position of down that low, and already full of lead?

     

     

    "During the news conference at Greater St. Marks Family Church in Ferguson, Baden said his preliminary autopsy revealed there were no signs of struggle between Brown and the officer and that all of Brown’s gunshot wounds were survivable except one from a bullet that entered at the top of Brown’s head and went downward through his brain."

     

     

     

     


  12. This 18 year old boy's autopsy says a lot about the slaughter he went through.

     

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/official-autopsy-michael-brown-had-marijuana-in-his-system-was-shot-

     

    “The killer shot hit Mr. Brown at the apex of his head,’’ Parks said. “There was a second round near his hairline, which went in and came out. This supports what witnesses said: He tried to surrender. Why would he be shot in the top of his head? Those two things are ample evidence for this officer to be arrested." - Daryl D. Parks (lawyer)

     

    Brown had no gun powder residue on him, which is consistent with being shot a distance away, rather than at close proximity. Brown may have been shot for as 30ft. away.

     

    I notice you failed to mention is that Atty Parks ALSO stated, (on national tv) that the head shot came from back to front.

    "At a news conference, lawyer Daryl Parks said: "They show that the direction of the bullet was in a back to front direction."

     

    http://www.itv.com/news/update/2014-08-18/missouri-teen-was-shot-in-a-back-to-front-direction/

     

     

    That is in direct contradiction to the ME who stated ALL the shots came from the front.

    Yes, the ME too stated there was no gunpowder residue on the body, but that he has not examined the clothing.

     

    The ME also said the shot could have been from 2 FEET away.

     


  13. haven't tried word yet. as far as the mouse showing: yes. I can type

    everything in the status box or comment box but when I press post,it says

    unable to post comment,please try again. when I hit "like" it acts like it

    worked but then immediately changes back.

     

    I can "see" everything fine. just cant comment,message, or like.

    my daughter can from her kindle,... so I know it's a computer

    issue ,not a facebook settings issue. just don't know where to start

    :wacko:

     

     

    Mine did this exact same thing awhile back. It was like I was double clicking everything.

    There is a spring mechanism inside the mouse and after awhile it wears out (I play a LOT of Mahjong games)

    It can be fixed, but the piece is so thin I was afraid of breaking it completely, so I just bought a new mouse.

    Hope this helps.
