Question: When Jones sees his green grocer being attacked by two thugs, he immediately fights them. Wouldn't he be charged with police brutality considering that he hit them first and really worked them over?

Answer: First: they threw the first punches, which Jones blocked. Second: they were criminals assaulting a member of the public. Third: they continued attacking him, so he continued to fight them.

Question: Who threw the evidence in the fireplace?

Answer: It depends on which ending you subscribe to. It could have been Scarlet to hide evidence of her brothel. It could have been Mustard to hide evidence of his affair with Yvette. Or it could have been White who wanted to destroy pictures of Yvette "in flagrante delicto" with other men (reminding her of her husband's infidelity).
