Key Witness In Michael Brown Case May Not Have Actually Seen Him Die, Report Says
A new report from The Smoking Gun calls into question the testimony and character of a grand jury witness who corroborated police officer Darren Wilson's account of shooting Michael Brown.The Smoking Gun confirmed that Sandra McElroy, a 45-year-old St. Louis resident who has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, is Witness 40, the person whose testimony aligned with Wilson's account of how he killed Brown, an unarmed black teenager, in Ferguson, Missouri, in August.
I didn't see this posted yet in the MSM or Non-MSM area, so I figured I'd throw it up. I'm not sure it changes anything, other than that prosecutor clearly didn't do a good job vetting his "witness" (though I'm not sure why the prosecutor would call a witness that defends the defendant - is that normal?).McElroy's journal, where she described seeing the shooting, says she went to Florissant, Missouri, a town near Ferguson, on the morning of Brown's death to "understand the Black race better so I stop calling Blacks Niggers and Start calling them People." And in a subsequent entry describing the Brown-Wilson encounter, McElroy describes Brown as a "big kid" who "started running right at the cop" and "wouldn't stop" even after the first three gunshots.
