Once again, fans over due their emotional expressions at a game. Soccer player Albert Ebosse is dead after being injured during his team's match with USM. No, not a heart malfunction. Ebosse was hit by something thrown from the stands during his teams loss in the Algerian football championship. Ebosse was walking off the field after a 2-1 loss when he was hit in the head. The 24-year-old Ebosse, was the leading goal-scorer in the Algerian league last season. He was apparently hit by the rock thrown from a section of JS Kabylie supporters. The so called fans were angry at their team's loss. Other players were also struck with rocks after they walked off the field. Algeria's interior ministry has requested police to investigate the death.

Did Office Darren Wilson Shoot 18-Year-old Michael Brown Over A $48.99 Box of Cigars or Were Shots Fired In Self Defense?
However, hindsight is always 20/20. Unfortunately the real world sometimes requires split second reactions and the line between a good decision and a bad one may become blurred in the heat of the moment. If nothing else comes out of the protests in Missouri, the message that officer education and training is critical to preserve the delicate balance of preserving freedom and keeping order.
Unfortunately, that is of little consolation to the family of 18-year-old Michael Brown who was shot by officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9. Wilson's suburban St. Louis police chief, Thomas Jackson, has now released documents alleging the teen was killed after an alleged robbery in which he was suspected of stealing a box of cigars. The cigars retailed for $48.99.

"He grabbed me, he threw me down, he started beating me, he beat me. I felt like he was trying to kill me, beat me to death." Powerful words after powerful blows.
