"So he goes in reverse back to them. He tries to get out of his car. They slam his door shut violently. I think he said Michael [Brown] did. Then he opens his car again and tries to get out and as he stands up Michael just bum rushes him, and just shoves him back into his car, punches him in the face and then of course Darren grabs for his gun and Michael grabs the gun. At one point he's got the gun totally turned against his hip and then he shoves it away and the gun goes off."BTW, I just noticed that Johnson claims that the gentle giant had been shot while the officer was trying to pull the 300 pound behemoth through a car window (year.. Right...).The genesis of this was a physical confrontation," St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said.
Wilson tries to exit his vehicle but Brown pushes him back into the car, according to the preliminary investigation, Belmar said.
Brown physically assaults the police officer and there is a struggle over the officer's gun, Belmar said.
A shot is fired inside the police car.
That too seems unlikely. But shouldn't be too difficult to tell.. based on bullet locations.Johnson: "My friend, Big Mike, very angrily is trying to pull away from the officer."
The officer draws his weapon. He says "'I'll shoot" or "I'm about to shoot." "I'm standing so close to Big Mike and the officer, I look in his window and I see that he has his gun pointed at both of us. And when he fired his weapon, I moved seconds before he pulled the trigger. I saw the fire come out the barrel and I instinctually knew it was a gun. I looked at my friend Big Mike and saw he was struck in the chest or upper region because I saw blood spatter down his side."

Hi, new to this forum and making post #1...
HOWEVER...it doesn't take much to see the blatantly disguised racism on display here.
I especially love how eyewitness testimony is inherently black, I mean shoddy. Frickin thugs, maybe they should have thought about the socioeconomic consequences before they decided to be slaves for 300 years and second class citizens for another 150. But it's a frickin moot point, right? They have had 60 years (15%) to "get ahead." They must be some lazy "people," am i rite? rite? 'murica!
One eye witness (also involved in the robbery) made the statement that Brown was shot in the back. The medical examination does not support that statement.
The investigation is not done. People are jumping to conclusions without knowing all the facts. Any eye witness statement needs to be collaborated by other evidence.
I will wait till the investigation is done before having an opinion on if the shooting was justified or not.
