    The source was the police.
    It was the Assistant (Police) Chief who took him to the hospital.

    This was a story because a white cop shot a black "youth". It fit a narrative. Never pretend otherwise.

    Dont forget he was soon to start college and he was referred to as a "gentle giant".

    Apparently the kind who had "gently" robbed a store and assaulted the clerk there, and then then "gently" punched a cop and wrestled to take his gun.

    What is it about " reversed" and "reengaged" did you not understand?

    Had you bothered to find out the actual evidence you would know that the Chief clarified that so people like you wouldn't latch on to false information.

    What the chief actually told the reporters at the time was that the initial contact was not over the robbery.
    that the "robbery does not relate to the initial contact between the officer and Michael Brown."
    In case you didn't know, "initial" would indicate there was more than one contact. Duh! And that initial contact was over them being in the middle of the street.
    Now had you paid attention to what you were told, you would have understood that after Officer Wilson finished this initial encounter and drove off, he "reversed his vehicle and reengaged" Brown and Johnson over the robbery, as you were told.
    Well post some evidence #1 He "reversed" or "reneged" on something.

    As for the rest that is exactly what I am saying. In fact it's funny because that goes directly against what Usconservative said.

The robbery occurred just a few minutes before the shooting-Brown had fled with a bunch of stolen merchandise (and was seen being quite aggressive on the video footage). The cop had heard just prior to asking Brown to move out of the street (he was walking down the middle of it) about a robbery in the area, and when he approached he saw that Brown was HOLDING MERCHANDISE THAT MATCHED THE ROBBERY DESCRIPTION. So we have a thug who likely thought that the cop was onto him, and we know from the officer that he now suspected Brown was involved in the robbery.

    As this was happening, Brown reached into the officers vehicle, punched the cop, and tried to pull his gun, in the ensuing struggle the gun fired twice inside the vehicle-and the cop was still in his drivers seat.

    So to say it had NOTHING to do with the shooting is silly, it did.
    Well got any evidence backing up that? I posted what the Chief of police said. So far you got nothing.

    It has already been posted several times. That is your fault for not paying attention. And the fact that you included "reneged" just attests to that.
    Even Johnson says that Wilson left and then reengaged. D'oh!
    And no, your premise was false, so the rest is not what you were saying.
    Officer Wilson was aware when he reengaged them, and that re engagement was because of the robbery. Which is not what you said at all.

    As for Usconservative? That is irrelevant to me correcting you.
    If you want to correct him go ahead.

    Read the timeline of the shooting as well as the officer and witness testimony. You can do this.

    Actually you didn't.
    You posted a Headline of a reporter's incorrect interpretation of what the chief said.

    I on the other hand, quoted exactly what the Chief said so it would contrast the incorrect assertion that you provided.
    that the "robbery does not relate to the initial contact between the officer and Michael Brown."

    My son would never put himself in such a place.

    How sick of you to expect those who'd defend you to risk their life at the hands of one who'd cause such harm. Very sickening in every way.
