    Missouri cop was badly beaten before shooting Michael Brown[W:150:507]

    Missouri cop was badly beaten before shooting Michael Brown, says source | Fox News

    Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, Mo., police officer whose fatal shooting of Michael Brown touched off more than a week of demonstrations, suffered severe facial injuries, including an orbital (eye socket) fracture, and was nearly beaten unconscious by Brown moments before firing his gun, a source close to the department's top brass told FoxNews.com.

    “The Assistant (Police) Chief took him to the hospital, his face all swollen on one side,” said the insider. “He was beaten very severely.”

    The source also said the dashboard and body cameras, which might have recorded crucial evidence, had been ordered by Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson, but had only recently arrived and had not yet been deployed.


    If this article is accurate, they're going to have a hard time indicting Officer Wilson. If the dash and body cams have any footage, along with testimonies and corroborating evidence that exonerate him, will this become a 'flash point' for more riots/protests?

    The cameras weren't used because they weren't installed.

    I also suspect that Wilson will be indicted no matter what evidence comes out. There are simply too many people too heavily invested politically, emotionally and ideologically for there not to be an indictment. I realize that those factors aren't supposed to be taken into consideration but I have no doubt that they will be.

    Yes, it will be claimed it was "doctored" and any small reason to riot will do.

    That's why Holder was sent. To make sure of indictment.

    I think so too. That way if the locals won't do it, the feds will.

    I hate to bring up Zimmerman but it reminds me of after verdict was read, Holder had to review to make sure they couldn't find something.

    Where are the dash cam videos or even pictures of these supposed injuries? No where to be found. So stop the hoaxing.

    The officer is white, the 'victim' was black. Thus the officer is guilty. That is the only information they want about this case, all other bits are not relevant.

    I think it will be quite the opposite, and even if there are charges brought, it will be as little as possible.
