The Ferguson Mess

We are now just a few hours away from finding out if there will be any indictment of the police officer that killed Michael Brown in Missouri. There is just one thing I can’t ever wrap my head around. If we take the police officer’s word that he felt threatened or was attacked, how many bullets does it take to subdue an unarmed man? He shot him six times! If he was shot once and died, I can see the argument of feeling threatened. I have to think that after the first, second, third, fourth, or fifth bullet that Michael Brown was no longer a risk.
