    In Missouri law, if someone dies while a felony is being committed, the suspect can be charged with murder. So it's entirely possible that the Ferguson PD is attempting to lay the groundwork to hold Johnson and Brown liable for Brown's murder.

    That's unlikely, to say the least.

    here are the relevant MO statutes

    first degree robbery
    http://www.moga.mo.gov/statutes/C500-599/5690000020.HTM (section 3 - dangerous instrument could be your fists/arms)

    second degree murder
    http://www.moga.mo.gov/statutes/C500-599/5650000021.HTM (section 2)

    I doubt that would hold up as a first degree robbery. Sounds like second degree to me.

    Still a class B felony, which could lead to a second degree murder charge.
    For whom? Brown? By running away he caused his own murder? By Johnson? Who stood there and did nothing?

    The second degree murder charge is the stretchiest of stretches

    they were allegedly stopped by darren wilson for not standing on the sidewalksuspicion of robbery around 7-8 minutes after the robbery occurred. how many minutes after leaving the scene of a crime does it take before you are not considered in flight from said scene? is there a hard limit defined somewhere else in missouri's statutes, because it's not listed in the criteria for second degree murder.

    (2) Commits or attempts to commit any felony, and, in the perpetration or the attempted perpetration of such felony or in the flight from the perpetration or attempted perpetration of such felony, another person is killed as a result of the perpetration or attempted perpetration of such felony or immediate flight from the perpetration of such felony or attempted perpetration of such felony.

    2. Murder in the second degree is a class A felony, and the punishment for second degree murder shall be in addition to the punishment for commission of a related felony or attempted felony, other than murder or manslaughter.

    I would like to know why they still have not released any information about the shooting, but keep releasing mountains of information about the supposed robbery





    no wait I know why

    Yes I already posted the statute.

    Causation is required to charge/convict someone of a crime. Felony murder is deisgned to capture situations where a person robs a store, hits the clerk on the head without intending to kill them (or maybe hits someone on the way out of the store) and that person ends up bleeding out and dying.

    How would you prove that Brown or Johnson CAUSED Brown's murder? Or that the murder was a RESULT of the perpetration of the felony robbery? The link is tenuous at best. I don't think it would ever stand up in court.

    The limits of what is the "commission" of the crime or flight therefrom are probably defined in case law but I'm not going to do a search right now.

    I would say they assess causation the same way that they assessed causation when they charged Henry Davis with 4 counts of property damage because he got blood on the cops shirts when they beat the shit out of him.

    but hey their story is shit anyways

    It's actually not bad policy to wait to interview the involved officer, due to how brain chemistry, memory, and trauma work.

    However that is no reason for the investigating agency to withhold information from the public.

    Guys, what the fuck?

    Why are we even giving this bullshit narrative credibility? There is no fucking way that the story the Ferguson police have told is reasonable. None of this has played out as it should have if that'd been the case. If Michael Brown was a suspect in the robbery, why would a police officer pull up his car next to him and talk to him through the window?! Why would Michael Brown then REACH FOR THE OFFICER'S GUN THROUGH THE WINDOW OF A MOVING CAR? Suddenly, the police that are fucking 'roiding out with the MRAPs and assault rifles Wednesday were the fucking Keystone Cops on Saturday?

    They just fucking spent the time since Saturday looking for any bullshit story they could paste together to cover their guy's ass. (Which is why I'm continually pissed at how our local judges keep letting cops get away with sharing their stories and communicating through their lawyers before having to make their notes on shooting incidents.)

    I know, and it's ridiculous and it just makes me so fucking angry

    As a teenager, I did stupid shit, obviously. As a young adult I did stupid shit, obviously! One of those stupid shit things was shoplifting a keychain from the Disney store in the mall. I wanted it, I thought it was overpriced at $20, I was a stupid shitty teenager, so I walked out of the store with it without paying.

    What if a cop stopped me inside the mall on suspicion of committing the robbery, there was a struggle where I kicked and screamed and resisted, and he shot me, and I died? Would it be an acceptable casualty? I think it's obvious that if you re-imagine the situation in a pedestrian (EDIT: ie "default" or majority-white) setting it becomes universally horrifying for anyone to consider. But because Michael Brown is black, and not beyond even a smidgen of a shadow of a doubt one of the "good ones," in a black neighborhood, well, he brought it on himself.

    I'm kind of exhausted by this bullshit but I also know I am privileged to be able to tune out of it when I want. Black Americans around this country never can.

    It's totally possible that the officer who shot Brown didn't know about the robbery or wasn't confronting him about that.

    I hear WalMart's instituting a new program to combat shoplifting. WalMart greeters will be armed with M16s and will fire immediately upon activation of the RFID alarms.

    Police typically want to get statements from parties as soon as possible because of those same issues and it does a number of things that are disadvantageous to the interviewed party.

    Ferguson was a time bomb, something would have started this sooner or later. That entire town's government and police department are going to need to be changed from top to bottom to get rid of the racist atmosphere - which isn't going to happen. It's also a state wide problem with a governor who gives no fucks until Obama gives him a call.

    I think the science backs up the idea that you will get a more detailed statement and better memories after a traumatic event if you wait for the brain to process and actually form the memories. I don't think it would be unreasonable for part of the policy for officers involved in shootings to be required to be isolated from other witnesses/officer until after their statement is taken.

    The ultimate problem is that you're expecting friends and comrades in arms to police each other, when they're much more likely to cover each others' asses, so their ass will be covered when the time comes.

    Everything comes down to basic human nature in this case.

    The nature of responding to crime immediately often requires that officers take immediate statements. But I'm all for follow up interviews after the traumatic event, and increased training on trauma-informed interviewing.

    If the person is a suspect, it would be possible to hold them for a while before interviewing as part of the process. Unfortunately cops can't isolate victims/witnesses from others, but they could do follow-up interviews to learn if the person remembered more details.

    Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, Mo. police officer who was identified Friday as the cop that killed an unarmed black teenager last weekend, reportedly skipped town with his family days ago.

    USA Today reported that no one answered the door Friday at Wilson's Crestwood, Mo. home. A police officer keeping watch over the home told the newspaper that Wilson had left town with his family days ago.

    Linky.

    Well, that seems good, right? People who should, at the very least, be under investigation can just up and take a vacation, right?
