Michael Brown Case Suddenly Blows Wide Open: A Likely Slam-Dunk For The Police
ClashDaily.com ^ | 8/15/14 | Donald Joy

Posted on 08/15/2014 12:36:56 PM PDT by IChing

Breaking new revelations in the controversy over the police shooting of 18-year old Michael Brown have not only changed the narrative completely, they probably guarantee that the police officer in question, Dennis Wilson, will be exonerated.

If not for new video evidence showing a person who has been positively identified as Brown committing strong-arm robbery nearby (at the same store which was looted and burned in the aftermath of his death), and just prior to the shooting incident, officer Wilson might have been railroaded as George Zimmerman nearly was last year, and falsely convicted of a very serious crime.

Lo and behold; the key witness at the scene of the shooting was Brown’s companion, Dorian Johnson, now revealed by published police reports to have been positively identified as being involved in the robbery himself. That means his account of what happened is not credible in the slightest, besides being logically impossible and absurd to begin with.

Still images released from the damning store surveillance video show the massive, giant Brown physically manhandling and shoving the much smaller store clerk when the clerk tries to prevent Brown from exiting the premises with stolen items, items which the official incident report (also just recently published online) describes having been handed off to Brown’s companion.

At first, things were not looking very good for Wilson. Multiple “eyewitnesses” went on record in the media over the last few days, claiming that Wilson needlessly gunned Brown down in the street while Brown was running away, then firing more shots into Brown after he allegedly stopped, turned, and put his hands in the air.

While those witnesses do not dispute that there had been an altercation between Brown and Wilson at the door of Wilson’s patrol car, along with an initial gunshot by Wilson from inside the vehicle, they nonetheless insist that Brown had been doing nothing wrong except walking in the middle of the street with his friend before being violently accosted by Wilson “for no reason” other than jaywalking.

Brown’s companion, Johnson, alleged that Wilson had first reached up through the window from inside the car and grabbed the 6′ 4,” 300lb Brown by the neck–an unlikely and virtually impossible scenario, based on the reality of physical circumstances. Johnson also claimed that Wilson then tried to pull Brown into the vehicle with him, which also makes no sense whatsoever in terms of tactics.

From the start, the police version has been that Brown attacked Wilson when the officer tried to exit his patrol car to confront him; Brown shoved Wilson back inside the vehicle and proceeded to beat him and grab for his gun, prompting Wilson to shoot Brown in self-defense, inside the vehicle.

Official reports are that officer Wilson has lacerations and contusions on his face from Brown beating him, and a spent shell casing was retrieved from inside the patrol car.

The newly discovered fact that Wilson confronted Brown not merely for jaywalking, but for robbery (a violent crime) means that Wilson not only had a perfectly good reason to shoot Brown in the first place–self defense of his own life when Brown attacked him and tried to grab his gun–but that after that, Wilson was also justified in shooting Brown if he indeed fled. Use of deadly force policy warrants it if the person is deemed at the time to be a further threat to the community, which after the act of robbery and of trying to kill a cop, Brown certainly would have been.

After those first shots, whether or Brown was actually capable of voluntarily stopping and surrendering, as his friends allege, is so dubious as to be not even worthy of a grand jury’s consideration. But as with the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman fiasco, there will probably still be an official push for the mobs to be appeased, to whatever extent.

Adding fuel to the fire of massive protests, looting, arson, and violent rioting sparked by the false narrative pounced upon and spread across the land by Trayvon Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump (who swooped in and cliented-up faster than you can say “Black Grievance Industry”), none other than Barack Hussein Obama himself once more contaminated what would have been the jury pool in the case, abusing his powerful office yet again (as he did in the similarly racially-charged Trayvon Martin and Henry Louis Gates controversies) by commenting on a local law enforcement matter, expressing prejudicial sympathy for one side–the BGI side–in an official White House press release and televised remarks before any facts were vetted.

Ignoring the police department’s account of what happened, and the jeopardy posed to the life of the officer, Obama expressed only outright sympathy for the Michael Brown camp. On TV, Obama said:

“We lost a young man, Michael brown, in heartbreaking and tragic circumstances. He was 18 years old, and his family will never hold Michael in their arms again.”

The Obama White House also issued an official press release, “Statement by the President on the Passing of Michael Brown“:

The death of Michael Brown is heartbreaking, and Michelle and I send our deepest condolences to his family and his community at this very difficult time. As Attorney General Holder has indicated, the Department of Justice is investigating the situation along with local officials, and they will continue to direct resources to the case as needed. I know the events of the past few days have prompted strong passions, but as details unfold, I urge everyone in Ferguson, Missouri, and across the country, to remember this young man through reflection and understanding. We should comfort each other and talk with one another in a way that heals, not in a way that wounds. Along with our prayers, that’s what Michael and his family, and our broader American community, deserve. As usual, Obama’s message is easily understood: Always assume that a black person who met with an unfavorable fate didn’t deserve it, and therefore, grieve over it.

Someone needs to tell president Skittles and his sons that robbery and attempted cop-killing result in the deserved, justified use of deadly force against the perpetrator, regardless of skin color.

As with the Trayvon Martin case, mainstream sources are running only the non-thuggish pictures of Brown–pictures of him smiling and posing with family, and pictures of him as a young child and toddler. You have to turn to non-mainstream sources to see pics of the thuggish, adult, aspiring rap star Brown, posing with other thuggish-looking black men, flashing gang signs and flipping the double middle fingers of the criminal gangsta-rap subculture.

One of Brown’s last Facebook posts was, “If I leave this earth today, at least you’ll know I care about others more than I cared about my damn self.” Very eerie. Or, did the gangsta-thug Brown deliberately seek out a confrontation with police, and successfully force his own “suicide by cop”? Seems to me there’s a good chance that he did.

Who thinks Wilson will be charged with anything? I say the "eyewitnesses" fall apart over the next 48 hours, as their lies finally start being formally rebutted by the police, and this never gets to a grand jury.

Wilson will STILL be railroaded. As is typical of DemoRacists, facts mean absolutely nothing to them.

I seriously doubt if the owner of the store will rebuild or reopen his store. He will now be considered a “snitch” by the locals and would be targeted.

I don’t see how the police officer involved in the shooting can go back out on patrol. They will be gunning for him. I think he would have to go to another police department.

Just a sad situation all around.

Wishful thinking. A member of top race in today's hierarchy was killed by a member of the lowest race and gender. Facts and justice do not matter

Whatever charges are not brought in Missouri, Holder will bring on the federal level with the media trumpeting him all the way.

These protesters look like total fools. They are so outraged over this shooting before they have any facts. The so-called witnesses are sketchy and nobody is going to convict a police officer on their word alone. It’s best to wait for a full forensic investigation before fanning flames and causing riots.

Not sure if this is a FACT. However it really doesn't matter if the cop "thought" he was involved in a crime or not. Clearly the kid knew he was involved and it would be logical that he thought the police knew that. That would make the kid more violent. Bottom line, the witnesses gave false stories.

Not by accident. The news media jumps on these stories prematurely not because of race but so they can pump it up into a real story. And they know the race baiters, looters, and professional protestors will happily pour into that city.

The media doesn't report news anymore, they make news. ;-(

This is crap and we as Conservatives should be really worried about this kind of thinking.

I was a prosecutor for 25 years. I don’t care WHAT the kid did before the cop confronted him. His hands were in the air. He was shot. He was murdered. My Office, based on the facts I see here, would have prosecuted the cop. I don’t care if it was Charles Manson who had his hands up. The cop committed a crime.

Be assured that if this type of police encounter is not prosecuted, the Police State will explode in scope and brutality.

Didn’t these “multiple eyewitnesses” insist that Brown was “shot in the back”? Every single photo of the body in the street—face down, with not a mark on the back of the shirt—refutes this.

The only thing that would save him is if he turned out to be “black”.

Otherwise, “the narrative” must be advanced, and the left will not let go of it.

If there is no support for continuing that narrative in this case, they’ll suddenly get a case of amnesia and forget the incident ever happened or that we saw what they were trying to do.

Regardless of whether the cop stopped Brown for walking in the street or as a suspect of a minutes-old strong arm robbery (from which Brown was still carrying the criminal evidence) IN BROWN’S MIND he was almost certainly thinking he was being stopped for that crime. And this mindless thug didn’t want to be caught for this crime so he reacted accordingly.

I wonder what Brown was responding to when he made the comment about the world knowing he cared more about others than himself if he left the earth today. Why would the world know he cared more about others - what was supposed to be the evidence of that? I’d like to know more about the context of his FB comment.

Normally, yes. In a sane world, yes.

But in the aftermath of all this hype, rioting and exposed lies, Wilson will probably walk.

Race riot or the Police State expanding in scope and brutality, the left wins either way.

Seems like a concept for a theme park. Build a miniature city, and charge people to riot in it. Call it Riotville.

Seems like these people don’t need facts are really care about the issue they are rioting. They just do it for fun.

I believe law enforcement in general is a reflection of the state, and as the state becomes more corrupt so will LEOs. Not good.

However, its just stupid to be dogmatically opposed to everything they do - we still need them if for no other reason than to keep the animals at bay, as they did in this case. Its their primary function.

On those complaining on the militarization of the Police I stand with them! On those bashing the cop over this shoot they made as big a fool of themselves as the rioters did.

I wounder what they would do if they had a 6'4" 290# hood was beating the hell out of them and trying to get their weapon from them?

As for me I would give him the weapon, but bullets first and I wouldn't be picky about where the bullets went in.

I’m assuming there was an autopsy. But we can’t always assume that. But since it was a police shooting, I’d expect there is. That will clear everything up.

I did see something about “that’s why they want another autopsy” but I haven’t seen any info about an initial one.
