Skip to comments.MICHAEL BROWN: A VERSION THE SHARPTONS AND JACKSONS OF THE WORLD DON'T WANT YOU TO KNOW ABOUT
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.
“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.”
Stupid is, as stupid does...
Collectivism at its finest.../sarc
Should the FCC make a visit to the media bosses about their employees harassing of the police?
Ferguson ping ...
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.

Ruh-roh. “I hear wet grass.”
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.
Barricade the area, then cut off utilites... and wait.
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
Bus in a whole bunch of Jehova Witnesses and Hari Krishnas to join them.
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.
am watching Fox and Cnn back and forth and they are all critical of the police, I disagree with the talking heads
Wow. So grand jury won’t even indict the cop.
There’ll be CHAOS in the streets!
"Man, F--- Jesse Jackson!"
If there's no controversy, there's no story and they have pack up all their shit and go home.
right, but they at the same time have already convicted the officer
I think it`s visiting day to go see jr.
