    New Michael Brown shooting witnesses describe scene

    New Michael Brown shooting witnesses describe scene - CNN.com

    Two men, shocked at what they saw, describe an unarmed teenager with his hands up in the air as he's gunned down by a police officer.
    Why does this make more sense to me than "dude was a dip**** idiot who decided to bumrush someone pointing a deadly weapon at him, after he had already decided to flee in terror"

    In that same video, the witness at the end of the video gave a completely conflicting account, stating that he in fact WAS facing the officer, and did NOT have his hands up in the air.

    Rather difficult to gauge any of the facts still.

    Or maybe they decided to make up stuff to try and get the cop charged and arrested, or to get on TV, or to become folk heroes? Why come out now and not before? Who knows? Maybe they're telling the truth - maybe they aren't. As for why it makes more sense to you, should be obvious.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    I agree. This sounds true and really incriminates Wilson. The cellphone video is especially damning. I'm ex-Whidbey and partied in Mt Vernon many moons ago (50 years).

    I don't trust a damn thing coming out about "new witness". I'll simply wait for the court case....
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Dood...even by the two new 'eyewitness accounts', he wasnt 'fleeing in terror'. In fact, according to their comments he was giving up, which FAR MORE supports the account of him engaging the officer in his car, being shot and attempting to run away, and then thought better of it stating "ok, ok, ok". That doesnt at all sound like 'fleeing in terror, does it?

    No one knows what really happened. This one news clip shows just why the facts are so hard to be clear on. Figuring it out is hard enough. Learning the ACTUAL truth is damn near impossible when so many people are so set on projecting their own personal bias onto the incident.

    It's easier to believe that people are EVIL and mean - not so stupid they kill their own selves as a result.

    It's called denial. It's understandable though - everyone wants to believe that people are good all the time and never do anything dumb or thoughtless - like walk in front of a race car, angrily confronting that race car driver - while the race is going on at speeds over 150 mph. Only to get hit and killed.

    You don't want to accept that someone was stupid enough to try to beat a cop to death and then was shot for it while he went to attack him again. It's called suicide by cop.

    You don't want to accept it - but that doesn't mean it doesn't happen. People can be violent, stupid, selfish ****s.

    They were clearly describing a murder scene.

    Yeah, these. I got tired of people pushing narratives instead of waiting for facts. Right now I trust nothing any one says about this case and will simply wait and hope the investigation is done properly.
