I am only unclear now about one detail. Here is what likely happened. Officer Wilson pulled up to Brown and started talking to him. He saw the cigars and mentioned it. Brown was possibly too close to Wilson and a struggle started at the vehicle. The gun went off. Brown started to run. One witness said he was only five feet away when he stopped. This makes no sense. After a struggle, the officer would take a few moments to recollect himself. Most witnesses, said Brown was thirty feet away when he stopped. Wilson had said "Freeze. Put your hands up". Brown started to comply. He had raised his arm, because the first bullet that hit him was consistent with arms being raised positioning.
This is the unclear part. If Wilson said something offensive, witnesses would heard it and there would be a delay and jawing back and forth. I think Brown may have inched a little forward with hands in the air still and Wilson fired nine more shots. Six hit Brown. One bullet in the head killed him.
Police superiors say that they knew little to nothing about Officer Wilson. Either they are lying or Officer Wilson was a very shy and introverted man, not suitable to be a modern police officer. He reacted either out of fear of Brown, but more likely he was enraged at Brown for defying him and wrestling him. Brown did hit Wilson in the eye, but the eye socket was not broken. Officer Wilson is guilty of retaliating against Brown when his hands were in the air. Even if Brown moved forward to rush Wilson. He was thirty feet away at the time. This would have given Wilson to prepare for an assault or to aim a non fatal shot.

Why is Peterson banned from attending the games? If they want to punish him, have him dressed on the sidelines to contemplate his actions. It is also gives confidence that the team is moving forward - not cowering in shame.

The protecting the quarterback has gotten ridiculous. It was a sack and then Drew Brees started whining.

Time to start Bridgewater. That shovel pass by Cassel should have been caught, but Cassel is going three and out. Time to break out the new guy and see if he can save our season.

It is, but The Vikings have to still try to get it together early.

Before They Were Fab:

Journey playing The Beatles' All Too Much live in 1974.

Elvis Costello and the Flip City Demos in 1975.

What are some famous records and videos you remember of rock stars before they were famous?

The Vikings will be 3-3 after beating The Lions. I ask fans on here to remember that football is just a sport. Some people are not respectful of that. Most are. Thank You.

Adults on the Spectrum  - 
 
What is autism, Asperger's, ADD, et al.?

I still don't know. It is very complicated. All I know is that I have similar traits to what my Dad has. My Dad is sort of like a camera with a huge lense that focuses on a leaf but blurs as soon as he moves it to view the field nearby.
I have the same thing. I can focus on tasks, but struggle in the social World. The most evidence of this struggle comes with any participation in a group of more than two people.
At first, I am trying to listen. What happens in conversations is that someone shifts the conversation, people add information, and the dynamics completely change.
I tend to get stuck on one thing that the first speaker says and want to ask questions and think about the idea. By that time, it is too late. I have gotten lost in my thoughts.
Also, I tire more easily. Any participation in a group means I need to be at my most alert time of the day. Otherwise, I am just too tired to pay attention for very long.
Sometimes, I even wear out when speaking with one person. I either just want to do all the talking or just find it too hard work to listen.
When it comes to derails that I like, I can be a virtual encyclopedia. If it something I am not strong at it is very difficult for me to absorb complex information. I get confused. I forget important steps and information.
When listening to a group and the group is asked to summarize what they just heard, I am amazed to see I missed some key points somehow.
In groups, I miss out on instructions that everyone else hears.
These traits and lack of skills I have are very important towards a healthy and happy social life. When it comes to sports, careers, place on the block, etc. I suffer enormously.
When it comes to women, I am no experiment but I have figured out that most women have an insecurity even in this era that requires that man be seen as powerful, mature, able, and complete in being able to perceive and value all the woman's complex needs.
In other words, women want a man that completes them, eases them, and makes them feel comfortable, and confident.
Unfortunately, there are always men of low moral standards who are takers. Takers can be really charming and confident, and when they finally hurt a woman, women never forget this.
Then, women start looking for a man who doesn't sound the least bit unsure or lacking in confidence. It is a disaster then for me, because I have a disability that makes it very difficult to display confidence and security.
In addition, the women's revolution did not include men. Men are still expected to be the strong and confident ones. We are expected to offer something. Now, the nerdy male can still appear strong by maybe showing that he can earn a living and offer security. However, I am unable to offer anything, but my own struggles.
So, I tried honesty and openness about what I have. That hasn't helped either. It is sort of like a football player during an important game saying "Coach. I may not catch the football because my fingers are jittery". Now, I have revealed that I am a weak and insecure man. I have revealed that I have struggles. Now, women think "Why would I want to deal with this?"
In conclusion, I suffer a lot from a disability that prevents me from being robust in listening and participating in the complexities of social participation and confidence in doing tasks in a socially convincing manner. This is extremely challenging. I am going to look into every strategy to maximize my ability to be seemingly effective.
Unfortunately, in 2014, the World is too fast. This makes it more challenging. I desperately need a simple, less demanding place where I can slowly show confidence and ability. It is a real challenge for me.

Bridgewater looked great. Harrison Smith not bad. Patterson. Okay. The rest the team stunk. How could Jennings drop that beautiful pass at the 15 Yard Line?

The defense was horrible, except for Harrison Smith. Those dropped passes were on the receivers. Jennings has played too long to drop a pass like that one that would have put the team on the fifteen yard line. I think Bridgewater water did a great job.

Okay day today, but this has always been a crazy World. However, I think it is a more difficult World every day. There is just way too much information and I wonder whether someone would be happier with autism living in an Old Order Amish community or back in the old farming days.
So much information and pressures nowadays. Everyone in a rush to grab things. Love is hard to find outside one's immediate family because there was always too much competition. The males and females that excel, come from the right families, or have a certain personality and talent always had their choices. They had many to choose from for say a relationship, a friendship, or simple connection and alliance. But, then there is the other end. I mean I look okay looking, but the moment I speak they hear years of oddness and obtuseness and no matter hard I try I cannot hide it enough so a woman wants to get to know me better, groups of people want me to hang with them, or people see some value in me.

Society doesn't allow me to be a human being. I meant to say. It is a sad pain I deal with every day of my life.
