    Which part? The part where "Johnson said they kept walking", which I'm assuming was still in the street. The part where he was shot or the part where people stole, looted and destroyed public property in the name of justice?

    "Klinger said that if an investigation shows the earlier struggle did occur as described, even if Brown was fleeing, it could be grounds for justifying the shooting."
    Based on the eye-witness testimony the investigation is justified and appropriate. We should all hold our tongues, however, regarding the officer's guilt or innocence until the investigation is over. Libs made complete fools of themselves in the Trayvon Martin shooting when it was ultimately revealed that Martin was a homophobe that attacked a guy who, to Martin's grave misfortune, defended himself with a gun.
