According to the autopsy he was shot FROM ABOVE which means that either 1.- the cop got on top of the car and jumped so he could shoot a 6 foot plus robber in the top of the head or 2.- the robber was charging at the cop in a football tackle stance (which just FYI is consistent with every wound on Brown).
Now which do YOU think is more likely? That a cop with NO history of abuse jumped on top his car so he could pop a guy trying to surrender, or that a 6 foot tall guy who had just robbed a store charged at the cop in the hopes of taking him down before he could get arrested AGAIN while he was already awaiting court on another charge?
Oh and you might want to look up his grand jury testimony which several news sites have published as it is pretty enlightening and fits with the physical evidence. According to Wilson "he saw the suspect walking down the middle of the street and when he told him to move it to the sidewalk, Brown used an expletive and ignored him (told him to go fuck himself or fuck off from the sounds of it but the press won't publish the words used)" and that is when he noticed a fistload of cigars in Brown's hand and put two and two together about the recent robbery and called for backup, stopping in front of Brown. When he tried to get out of the cruiser he was first hit by the door and then punched (bruises on Wilson published from ER photos back this up) and at that point he "believed another punch would knock him out" so he reached for his gun which Brown them shoved his way into the driver's window and attempted to wrestle the gun away (the blood stains in the car as well as the secret witness recording immediately after the shooting back this part up) and it was only after he managed to get control of the gun that Brown ran for a bit. The only evidence we have to back up the last bit is the autopsy but considering what happened up to that point and Brown's history of strong arm crimes it does fit his criminal pattern. According to Wilson after he yelled halt Brown stopped with his hands in the air, only for him to lower them when he turned around and say something to the effect of "you are too big a pussy to shoot me" following which Brown charged in a football tackle. Wilson tried to use a stopping shot but he kept coming (again consistent with the wounds) and that is when he unloaded on him.
Yeah...sorry, if you published that word for word but simply made Brown's skin color white? Not a single word would have been said, just another criminal that thought their brute strength could beat a bullet. The only reason anybody said a word is because Brown was black, simple as that. I'm only shocked the press didn't start running photos of him in third grade like they did with Martin.
As someone with a scar on the back of his head from a cop that didn't like a "fucking hippie riding with a nigger" I'm all for busting cops who think they are above the law, that poor woman getting beaten on the side of the road is a perfect example of that but Brown? Nope, sorry, he was a strong arm robber that thought he was the big bad, which is why he walked down the middle of the street instead of doing what any sane crook would have done and beat a hasty exit from the scene of the crime. One can really only draw one conclusion from him walking down the dead center of the road right after a robbery and that he was itching for a fight. Well he got one and found out the hard way that brawn don't beat bullets.
