What's Next in Michael Brown Case? Q & A with Chris Cuomo

The streets of Ferguson have calmed, children are heading back to school and residents are honoring Michael Brown’s family's wish for peace.

But now a legal battle looms over whether Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson was justified in shooting and killing the unarmed teenager.

Chris Cuomo hosted a Facebook chat on Tuesday to address your questions on the case.

Here are some highlights:

Q: Imarah – Guilty or not guilty, Do you not think six shoots is way overboard and also why the head or a fatal shoot, do they not teach them in the police academy ways to injure or slow down without killing? I think it should be mandatory that all police officers wear cam for both our protection and theirs as it will enable better transparency. What do u think?

A: Chris Cuomo the number of shots is a tricky part of the analysis. it always is in cases like this. the primary analysis is whether shooting was necessary at all.

----

Q: Anna – If officer Wilson is charged with murder, who pays the legal fees?

Keith – The police union

A: Chris Cuomo or him personally or benefactors, not the taxpayer, because the crime would be seen as not in the line of expected duty

----

Q: Elisabeth – I don't agree with police killing an unarmed man....however, the boy is on camera committing a crime....

A: Chris Cuomo Elisabeth – this is a natural instinct that I think fails to be helpful here. And here is why: we do not know whether the officer was responding to the robbery, and it does not seem that he was. the past therefore is only relevant as a measure of potential reaction to the actual altercation and shooting that occurred.
