We have no idea how much they may know. That's why I don't think it can be used either for the defense of this time - nor previous incidents be used to implicate. We have no reason to expect any of...

It sounds more like you see him as a proxy to blame for lot of other stuff that has gone on. But the fact is, none of it was anything like this. None of it was about one person making contact leading...

Then I'm sure you won't be surprised to find out that, in many places in the world, that opinion is considered arrogant and stupid, not to mention cruel and unnecessary.

Every time a group feels threatened they don't have to run away or restrain an unarmed man. Just Stop or we'll shoot and then, next time they get it. Yep, that's what most people think, I know. Just...

If that is the correct morality, I'm going to have to change my opinion about many other incidents of unarmed people being killed. I knew that most people disagree but I didn't think you all did. I...

Yes, Richard W, to state the obvious, peace, prosperity, and morality are all luxuries. I agree that is a sad fact. That doesn't change what's right and wrong. Nothing you said negates the wrongness...

What do you mean "non-lethally"? Are you saying that there's some indication they were trying to miss in the first incident? They hit a book he was carrying so I don't think that's the case at all....
