THERE is a reason why the police are warned about posting on social media in the UK. It’s to prevent them from looking biased and commenting on cases. But people will be people. As the BBC reports:

Hundreds of police officers have been investigated for breaching social media guidelines, research has revealed.Freedom of Information requests by the Press Association found officers made racist comments online and asked crime victims to become Facebook friends.

Of 828 cases in England and Wales from 2009 to February this year, 9% ended in resignation, dismissal or retirement.

So. To the US, where  Kansas City police officer Marc Catron thought it a good idea to post a picure of killed 18-year-old Michael Brown looking tough. See the above photo.

The comment is clearly judgemental.

And it’s not Brown in the photo. It’s  Jodah Cain , a 17-year-old accused of murdering his grandmother in Oregon last year.

Fine police work, there.

One point is that Brown was unarmed when he was shot dead. And that the shooter, Police Officer Darren Wilson, suffered facial fractures during his confrontation with Brown.

Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.”

We still do not know all that occured before the shooting.

There is news that Michael Brown robbed a convenience store on the day of his death.

But the officer who shot him didn’t know that.

The officer got into row with Brown over the dead man’s jaywalking.

Hollie McKay at  FOX News  reported:

 According to the well-placed source, Wilson was coming off another case in the neighborhood on Aug. 9 when he ordered Michael Brown and his friend Dorain Johnson to stop walking in the middle of the road because they were obstructing traffic. However, the confrontation quickly escalated into physical violence, the source said..

“They ignored him and the officer started to get out of the car to tell them to move,” the source said. “They shoved him right back in, that’s when Michael Brown leans in and starts beating Officer Wilson in the head and the face.

The source claims that there is “solid proof” that there was a struggle between Brown and Wilson for the policeman’s firearm, resulting in the gun going off although it still remains unclear at this stage who pulled the trigger. Brown started to walk away according to the account, prompting Wilson to draw his gun and order him to freeze. Brown, the source said, raised his hands in the air, and turned around saying, “What, you’re going to shoot me?”

At that point, the source told FoxNews.com, the 6 foot, 4 inch, 300-pound Brown charged Wilson, prompting the officer to fire at least six shots at him, including the fatal bullet that penetrated the top of Brown’s skull, according to an independent autopsy conducted at the request of Brown’s family.
