MICHAEL BROWN: A VERSION THE SHARPTONS AND JACKSONS OF THE WORLD DON'T WANT YOU TO KNOW ABOUT
Hopelessly Partisan blog ^ | August 18, 2014 | Ken Berwitz

Posted on 08/18/2014 7:56:03 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Here, excerpted from an article at cnn.com, is a version of what happened between Michael Brown and Officer Darren Wilson that was called into Saint Louis' radio station KFTK. I assure you that the al sharptons and jesse jacksons of the world would rather you don't know a thing about it. But in this blog, we show all sides, so here it is:

According to the account on St. Louis radio station KFTK, phoned in by a woman who identified herself as "Josie," the altercation on August 9 began after Officer Darren Wilson rolled down his window to tell Brown and a friend to stop walking in the street.

When Wilson tried to get out of his cruiser, Brown first tried to push the officer back into the car, then punched him in the face and grabbed for his gun before breaking free after the gun went off once, the caller said.

Wilson pursued Brown and his friend, ordering them to freeze, according to the account. When they turned around, Brown began taunting Wilson, saying he would not arrest them, then ran at the officer at full speed, the caller said.

Wilson then began shooting. The final shot was to Brown's forehead, and the teenager fell two or three feet in front of Wilson, said the caller, who identified herself as the officer's friend.

A source with detailed knowledge of the investigation later told CNN the caller's account is "accurate," in that it matches what Wilson has told investigators.

If true, the account represents the first telling of events from the perspective of Wilson, whose shooting of Brown has touched off violent nightly protests in the suburban St. Louis city, and prompted Gov. Jay Nixon to call out the National Guard.

Do I know whether "Josie" is telling the truth? Nope.

Which puts her account in exactly the same place as every other one.

Why should I believe her "eye-witness" version of what happened any more or less than anyone else's?

And what does this tell you about what is happening in Ferguson, Missouri - other than that a lot of people are making a lot of noise and doing a lot of damage over something they haven't the slightest wisp of verifiable knowledge about.

That may suit the racial arsonists like sharpton and jackson just fine. But I am certain it doesn't suit most of the people in Ferguson - Black or White - one little bit.

One more thing. In case people are getting the wrong idea about Ferguson, Missouri (and I have little doubt there are plenty of them). Let me again remind you, as I have in previous blogs, how few people are causing trouble there.

The TV coverage makes it seem like just about everyone in town is out there. But that could not be further from the truth.

Ferguson, Missouri has about 14,000 Black residents. Watch your TV and note how many are out there rioting, looting or behaving in a disorderly manner (as opposed to protesting, which anyone is entitled to do). Is it 100 or maybe, at most, 200?

I doubt it is as much as 200 - but say that it even 300.

Now, assuming they are all locals (which probably is not true), subtract 300 from 14,000 and you get 13,700 out of 14,000. That is how many Black people in Ferguson are not rioting, looting or disorderly.

Please, please keep this reality in mind.

It looks like the journalist/reporters are trying to steal the show from Michael Brown.

Should the FCC make a visit to the media bosses about their employees harassing of the police?

Should this be found to be true, everyone in the streets protesting needs to do at least 20 years in prison, including Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton for inciting violence. No compromise exists until those people are put in prison for all of this.

Yeah but it don’t matter what the truth is because liberals don’t deal in truth, they deal in fantasy. So Wilson will be fired and will be tried for murder and convicted so the ferals don’t riot and loot again which of course they don’t do when gangstas kill innocent kids, and the family of the robber will get millions and Al Sharpton will get his cut and the Islamic enemy agent posing as our POTUS will have succeeded in diverting the press from him again.

While they're burning down what precious little they have in their own neighborhoods, the race pimps are sitting in mansions behind closed gates, counting their money.

Ole Jesse won’t stick around long. He got booed Yesterday in a Black Church when he asked for donations.

He’s got his ho and love child to support.

I truly believe this officer is innocent, and I find it very upsetting listening to all the talking heads convicting him.

Ed Henry on with Eric Bolling on Fox O’reilly, Ed Henry refers to the shooting “as a apparent murder” Eric Bolling filling in for Bill O never even blinked when Ed said this.

I was outraged, emailed Fox but seems nobody cares...Ed Henry should have to apologize

Why this upstanding young man who would be soon off to college was just out walking with his friend when the police officer pulled up and drew his gun and shot him repeatedly in the back solely out of racism. That’s the liberal narrative and the truth and actual evidence be damned.

Wow. So grand jury won’t even indict the cop.

There’ll be CHAOS in the streets!

And Holder and his people are there to make sure it goes down exactly as you detailed.

No way do they want this to be another Travon.

I doubt it is as much as 200 - but say that it even 300.

Looting is considered a capital offense. If ti is enforced, as such, a lot of this wanton destruction would stop. Of course, there would be folks on both sides of the aisle carping about government/police overreach and intimidation, but the fact is, there are times and situations when you either have to destroy it or succumb to it.

Modern day slavery by the government that decries the slavery of the past.

Every time something like this happens it is made into a race issue and most likely for a purpose.

What do you suppose would happen if two white guys were walking down the street and was told by a cop to get off of the street?

They would have gotten off of the street, they might silently cuss the stupid Hitler mentality brain dead cop but they would go to the side walk.

But let me make one thing clear, I am not saying that this cop was anything but a good sensible guy, I am just saying what I would think if he started giving me orders when I did not believe he should and also what the people involved would be thinking.

Although the controllers of these public servants are stupid in the spiritual sense they do know that black people reacts different.

The black people have been taught for the last 45 years that they are victims and they hate the people who are victimizing them, white people.

It was the white man who came up with the slogan ( I am American, free, white and 21, I will do as I dam please.)

So if blacks have equal rights why can`t they also do as they dam please?

So to have a cop to tell two grown men to get off the street just as if they were little kids is a low blow regardless of color, would a black cop have told them to get off of the street? probably not.

Why is it that white people can see the Government tyranny that is coming on this nation but then when something like this happens can not see its actual cause?

As long as the tyrants can keep the racial strife going they have the black vote all tied up.

I agree, I think he did what he had to do but I think he may have used poor judgment which is what started it.
