I saw the ABC interview with Darren Wilson and the way he describes what happened is really mind-boggling.mikesus wrote:Shades of Malice Green all over again. Don't like the verdict? (in this case grand jury decision) Get someone to find a way to pin SOMETHING on the cop at all costs... Its for the "GREATER GOOD"
He sounded like he had very careful rehearsed his answers to match the all legal requirements. You could basically check off all the sections in the law for justifiable homicide by police.
The way he described Micheal Brown (who, btw, I dont think was a Saint or the aspiring college kid he is now being described by some) as some maniac, hellbent on killing him with his bare hands just seems very hard to believe.
There are too many open questions still that should have been resolved in a trial.
And yes, this would have served the GREATER GOOD, because we cant let people shoot other people dead and then just say "it was self defense" and take their word for it.
