    WILSON’S STORY...not Micheal's 'cus he's dead


    [...]

    Wilson told investigators that after Brown passed by, Wilson realized that Johnson’s clothing matched a recent radio alert about a suspect in a robbery at a nearby market where cigarillos had been taken. Wilson radioed for assistance and backed up his SUV to Brown and Johnson.

    The source said Wilson told investigators he had placed the SUV in park. When Wilson tried to get out of the SUV, Brown slammed its door shut and punched Wilson in the left side of the face through the open window, the source said.


    [...]

    Brown grabbed the pistol using his right hand, with his elbow against Wilson. Wilson described Brown as incredibly strong, the source said.

    During the struggle, Brown handed the cigarillos to Johnson, then swung his left hand and hit Wilson on the right side of the face. Wilson said he almost lost consciousness, the source said. Brown then began to use his left hand in the struggle for the gun, and turned the pistol until the barrel was against Wilson’s hip.

    The second time Wilson pulled the trigger, the gun did fire. Wilson told investigators he thought the bullet had struck Brown in the hand, the source said. Broken window glass was everywhere, and blood was on the door, the gun and Wilson’s hands. At the time, Wilson said, he wasn’t sure whose blood it was.


    [...]

    Wilson said Brown had not had his hands up; his left hand was slightly out, fingers pointing down. His right hand was grasping his shirt. Then, Wilson told investigators, Brown began running toward him.

    Wilson said he had yelled for Brown to stop, then fired, the source said. Brown flinched as if he was hit, and Wilson said he had stopped shooting. Brown continued running toward him, and Wilson said he had fired several more shots. The source said that Wilson had recalled that Brown’s head was down when the last shot hit him there.

    Sadly we don't have Micheal's side of the incident. They say there are two sides to every story. Awesome the shooter has his.

    3) He was able to shoot him multiple times while being half consciousness?


    4) Brown punch him and wrestle for the gun. That means for this to go down, the window had to be completely down for this to even occur right? Where did the broken window glass come from? Remember, it was only 2 shots discharged.


    ......Okay.........
    Speculative BS.

    Face it. You and so many other easily influenced Americans bought into the lies of a thug that just participated in a strong armed robbery.

    Maybe you'll learn something from this, maybe you won't.

    Assaulting an officer and going for his Gun usually means you won't get to tell your side of the story.

    Brown should have known better.

Wether Brown was simply walking (as at least one eye-witness claimed) or running (As Wilson claimed) wil not have much of an impact on the outcome.
    And there are multiple eye witnesses including white contractors who don't even know Brown and were not from the area that all stated that Brown had his hands up, but Wilson statement says that he did not have his hands up.

    Interesting don't you think?

    I can say the same thing about your BS !!!!!

    You and other like yourself are easily influence by your racial ignorance that you will always side on the cop side no matter what. You are not interested in finding out the truth, you are more interested in protecting this white officer.

    The forensics don't support the hands up theory. I read an article where an indpendent medical examiner reviewed the results and came to this conclusion.

    That trajectory shows Brown probably was not taking a standard surrender position with arms above the shoulders and palms out when
    Official autopsy shows Michael Brown had close-range wound to his hand, marijuana in system : News

    They also blow holes in the statements that he was shot while running away. Forensics or eye-witness accounts... Take your pick, I guess.

    Re: Source: Darren Wilson says Michael Brown kept charging at him

    I think Wilson's side of the story should have been released by the Police a long time ago. It sounds plausible and is supported by forensics. I'm surprised because the media reports up to this point were one sided to the favor of Brown. I wouldn't indict Wilson with this evidence. Sounds like he was just doing his job under a difficult set of circumstanes, especially what points to a lying Mister Johnson. Seems like an indictment of Johnson might be a prudent and justifiable option.

    True there are two sides to a story.

    The question should be is the forensic evidence supporting the "shooter" or not.

    If the answer is yes, then does it really matter if the other sides story is available?

    Even witness statements should be supported by other evidence.

    The documents, obtained by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and analyzed by two experts not directly involved in the case, appears to contradict witness accounts that claimed Brown was running away from Police Officer Darren Wilson, 28, when he was killed on Aug. 9. The new information comes on the heels of reports that Wilson told authorities Brown had reached inside Wilson’s police SUV and struggled for his gun, resulting in Wilson firing twice, hitting Brown once in the hand. Moments later and outside of the vehicle, Wilson fired the fatal bullets that sparked a national controversy. Autopsy, toxicology report on Michael Brown reportedly reveal marijuana, cast doubt on witness claims he was running away | Fox News

    My " BS " is supported by Forensics.

    What's yours supported by ? Empty manufactured narratives and bumper sticker slogans ?
