Wrongful death? So they're filing suit because the wrong person was killed? Are they saying the officer should have been killed not the thug? (sarcasm)

How ridiculous. One day when we quit awarding thugs for being thugs we can take back this country. Support police...down with thugs.

If anyone has a right for compensation it is Officer Wilson and not the parents of scum bag Brown who lived and died as a scum bag. If anyone is responsible
for Brown's early death it is Brown himself or his parents who obviously did a
poor job in parenting.

Let's see, join a gang, use illegal drugs, rob a store, assault a clerk, asked nicely by a cop to get out of the street so your stupid butt doesn't get run over, attack cop, get removed from gene pool by own stupidity then cop looses his career, cops life ruined by idiot, the award winning parents sue cops for their lack of parental abilities & responsibilities. Is it just me or is there something wrong here???

These criminals just want the money. They didn't give shit that m.b. was a p.o.s. Really their behavior said it all. They said NOTHING bout him robbing an old man and m.b. attempting to take a weapon away from the officer while assaulting him. They just don't give a shit. Just looking for a pay day to ensure that they don't have to work for a living.

The sad thing is, you know they'll win something!

Plato's I correctly perceive that you are waxing less philosophical and becoming more pragmatic in your postings? WAY TO GO!
