Skip to comments.Caller says she has the officer's side of the Ferguson shooting
Posted on 08/19/2014 6:17:15 AM PDT by Red Badger
The officer who killed Brown says the teenager rushed at him full speed in the moments before the shooting, according to an account phoned in to a St. Louis radio station and confirmed by a source with detailed knowledge of the investigation.
According to the version on 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.

A dozen witnesses now back the cop’s story per a reporter tweet on Twitchy.
If that’s the case, the grand jury won’t even indict the cop.
The inJustice Department will move for Civil Rights criminal charges.
Possible further riots when that doesn’t work or when the officer is found not guilty.
Hey, what’s going on in Iraq? With the southern border?
Who cares, says the MSM? We got a riot to cover!
Has Reverend Al called her out as a racist/homophobe yet?
Wow. If your a member of the victim class, you know your case is doomed when you lose CNN.
The questions is, will CNN's broadcast operation air this?
The second questions is, if it does, will anybody see it?
According to one report yesterday there were more ‘journalists’ on scene then protestors last night.
The rioters don’t want to hear the truth. Pillaging and plundering is entertainment for them and it probably doesn’t help that that a large number are probably unemployed and the fire is being stoked by the MSM and the likes of Sharpton and The Black Panther Party
The provacateurs in the mob of “protestors” desperately wanted to create a violent incident whereby they could claim that the POLice overreacted. This would provide a pretext for further riots and an escalation of even more violence and looting. So far, that tactic hasn’t worked. So far.
Makes me wonder if The Regime is encouraging them because I've never seen something like this before. Rodney King was different, that was a cop beating him on tape that the MSM played day and night. This is a robbery with the perp getting into a scuffle with the cop, happens every single day but this one they pay attention to? It's the same with the Trayvon Martin case, self defense cases happen every day but that one explodes? Because The Regime exacerbated it.
He’ll probably say she’s a black Tea Party member who’s lying.../s
Leave the belts!

I wish this were true but you are dealing with the “stop snitching” culture.
It will probably be enough that the original “eyewitnesses” testimony is so damaged that no grand jury will indict, and even if they do, those people will NEVER stand up under scrutiny in court.
DOJ sent in teams to encourage the protesting.
Just a jour-no-list concocted distraction to motivate Obama’s base voters (very base) and to keep the ObamaCare, ISIS, bad economic, open southern borders, etc. real news off the front page.
Instead, it’s time for a ‘dialogue on race’ - exactly like St. Trayvon before the last election.
Here comes the CYA operation by the media.
Juts looking at that photo, it’s too bad the liquor store owner didn’t have a gun. He nailed up plywood but of course the Obamasons went right through it. If he had an M-16 which of course he has the constitutional right to own but doesn’t because liberals do not understand the word “not”, he could have laid on the roof and picked them off one by one as they approached the place.
Idiots with their pants down around their knees.......................
They’ve already got recorded statements with the police. Likely on tape.
It happened it too open of an area and too many people saw it - unlike Zimmerman and that just took 2 or 3 to back George’s story for him to be found not guilty.
I don’t think Wilson will even be indicted on state charges.
DOJ will then bow to political pressure and bring Civil Rights charges.
This story has been out there for days and CNN is just now reporting it?
That’s exactly what it is because this crap doesn’t make sense, they are rioting and looting over something that happens every single day. Crook commits crime, crook gets shot by cop, end of story. I bet you 20 cases like that happened ever since this story broke, but this one causes rioting and looting? no no no, something else is going on here. This freakin’ Islamic mutt in the White house is organizing this stuff.
As Freeper ‘Third Person’ posted, it’s CYA time. The narrative has collapsed, so real truth is now in vogue...............
Your post is spot on.
Eric the Holder of Social Justice can personally oversee/coordinate the protesting, now.
