    WTF wait not that there can't be a connection, or truth to RR and above have implied, but if so why him?! I don't even remember his testimony being all that damaging. He cried on the stand to the extent that they had to break and resume after he composed himself, but he was more emotional than any of Bo's family, and said he only met the man once (not that that invalidates his feelings or anything, but I'd have taken his testimony with a grain of salt)>

    The only way, would be if she really did shout commmands, and he heard them, but did not testify to it. I'd doubt that too, because other neighbors hadn't heard anything of the sort either.

    So, there is data.. good study that show some interesting things.

    (this is ballparking as it's from memory, but I'm fairly confident it's not far off)

    Black lives 20% longer when they have black doctors. They agree to 50-70% more recommended health screening, test, procedure when they have black doctors.

    Black have higher test score, a 40% drop in high school drop out if they had a black teacher in early grades (K, 1, 2) - notice the long term effect. Similar effect for white.

    There are many reasons for above - it's not as simple as just skin color, but also trust, understanding, tolerance and so on...

    Before people think oh, let's segregate -- a diverse race / group lead to better ideas and innovation vs a monolithic group... by some very high %. Always.

    The idea that people shouldn't be "grouped" with those like them (black with black) have real negative effect. And of course the idea of segregation has even stronger negative effect (funding, racist policy, and such). Policy wise, when you look at data, you have to consider within a system, perhaps some "grouping" of people like you at certain point is smart effective policy. We are a nation of diverse people and that is a strength, but there is also a weakness in that people lack trust / understanding / bias / etc toward each other. The strength is too strong to give up on being such a group, but we can do things to mitigate the weakness, including grouping people that are similar together at some point for some duration - it's shouldn't be universally frowned upon.

    It sure looks suspicious as hell. Hopefully they get to the bottom of this and find the killer, regardless of who it is and why it happened.

    I mean it would be a pretty rare statistical coincidence if he did die unrelated to the trial so ya, color me suspicious.

    It would be even more rare that a cop took retaliation no matter what we feel about police

    The police weren't rallying around her

    Lawyer S. Lee Merritt, who represented the Jean family and is now an attorney for Brown's family, said in a statement that the 28-year-old former college athlete "lived in constant fear that he could be the next victim of gun violence."

    Merritt said Brown had been shot last year when a birthday party at a club in Dallas turned violent. A gunman fired at Brown and some of his friends, hitting Brown in the foot. One person was killed.

    "Josh Brown expressed concerns about the exposure he would get from this trial and expressed concerns for his safety," Merritt told the Today show.

    "A lot of people believe, including himself, apparently, that he was the target of that shooting, and he was afraid somebody might come and try to finish the job," Merritt said in an interview with Black America Web.

    WTF man I cannot imagine living in that reality. Is it just that part of town that is especially rough, everyone is (justifiably) paranoid? something particular to him, that he was personally into, people/situations?

    Sorry you police haters got your bubbles busted by back to normal

    Edit: not being a jerk but the conspiracy stuff was stupid

    This wasn't a normal police shooting with the blue circling wagons

    Can I get the numbers on retaliatory murder by cops vs drug deals gone wrong. Probability doesn't seem to be in favor of conspiratorial hit but willing to see the evidence.
