Encouraged by U.S lawmakers, Riyadh armed Syrian rebels. A strategy that likely created the monster named ISIS.

"ISIS has been a Saudi project," one Qatari official said.

Back in #279 I linked to the original Dorian Johnson video

Dixville, unfortunately your first link to an interview was a carefully clipped (you start your link 42 seconds into the interview) link that was a lie.

I discounted (not disregarded) everything you said since.

Let's take the Crenshaw interview: "Several shots hit Brown as he ran" is still consistent with the autopsy - hand and forearm - and no where does Crenshaw say "hit in him the back."

Now let's take your #279:
At 2:05:
At "and he shot again, and once my friend felt that shot he turned around and put his hands in the air"

Not "hit in the back."

But doing due diligence, I will give you that by the time the USA interview was done, Johnson had changed his wording from "felt the shot" (as he was running away) to "hit in the back."

I had not seen the USA interview from August 13, 2014 the day after the previous interview. That does point to the importance of immediately getting witness testimony before a "narrative" gets introduced.

Now back to your original statement:
Here are the two witnesses last week on CNN saying it looked like he got hit in the back:
youtu.be

Niether supported your "hit in the (anatomical) back" statement. But perhaps I misunderstood, and by "back" you mean "from behind?"

Up until the day after interview (USA Today) you posted, I hadn't heard any actual interview with any witness that said "hit in the back."

Still I'm lost on "shot in the back" being a relevant point since both the hand and forearm shots are likely to have been introduced while Brown was facing away from the officer.

Try it yourself. Stand up, look at your hand and forearm position. Now run.

They could also be from Brown facing the officer with his hands up surrendering - if you prefer that scenario...

Another interesting (and related only by subject) was this in the journal Neurology:

Our results confirm that vitamin D deficiency is associated with a substantially increased risk of all-cause dementia and Alzheimer disease.

And while possible prevention is a nice way to go, this article on reversing and allowing the connections for memory to be made could be so significant for so many. Including someone I know that was just diagnosed. I have my fingers crossed.
