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.
Did white guilt die this week?
They will have to move the trial in Chicago................
The governor can always appoint a special prosecutor to go after the innocent, like Governor Scott did in appointing Corey to go after Zimmerman.
Yes it was shot in the head...................
and now the DOJ.
That's it. Exactly.
We need a few rogue signs/banners sprinkled in the “crowds” (of mostly press and LEO’s), that say “Focus on our Borders!” or “ISIS is taking over, everywhere!” or “Squirrel!”...but, I digress.
They are like Hamas. They crave to see a passle of their own neighbors and clients get killed.
> and now the DOJ
I think The Black Panther Party is one of their divisions now.../s
What was Darion Johnson doing while Michael Brown was fighting with officer Darren Wilson & trying to get his gun which went off inside the vehicle during the scuffle?
His lawyer has him gagged...................
So, basically all the initial accounts were 100% inaccurate. Shocking.
The more militant wing of the DOJ.
Send in the thugs to stoke the fires while we call for call. Sounds like Hamas.
The story from the officers point of view seems to be consistent every time it is told.
The story from the perp’s point of view has multiple different versions, none of which is anywhere near the same.
One black woman Dem said if they don’t convict then there would be more trouble.
I guess she has not heard of evidence and the justice system, but what is scary is how people trust the media, even on here people were pushing the left talking about, but also scary is that there are people voting who vote for the likes of this woman and Obama.
“A dozen witnesses now back the cops story per a reporter tweet on Twitchy.
If thats the case, the grand jury wont even indict the cop.”
It all depends on what evidence is presented to the grand jury and what evidence is withheld. It has often been said a prosecutor can get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich. In the current environment, if the prosecutor has any ambitions for a political career, he/she may conduct the grand jury to achieve the outcome she/he perceives will be most beneficial (or least damage) to career.
The pressure from the media, race baiters, Democrats, and federal government for an indictment of the officer has to be intense. Unfortunately our legal system has been politicized and corrupted. It no longer promotes equal justice under law or seeks to find the truth.
Any DA who stands tall, conducts a thorough and impartial investigation, and returns from the grand jury without an indictment will be pilloried by the left, the black community, and the media. Any ambitions for higher office will be dead and there will likely be demands for his/her resignation. Not to mention the wave of rioting and looting that will likely follow. How many men or women today will risk career to seek the truth?
Of course if the DA uses the grand jury process to deliver the indictment demanded by the mob, he/she will be hailed and celebrated by the media. If an innocent policeman is subsequently railroaded, convicted of a crime, and sent to prison the mob will be placated and the media can pronounce justice done. The end result will be a demonstration the legal system is completely politicized.
It is possible the policeman either used poor judgment or deliberately killed the suspect. If that is the case, an objective assessment of the facts should indicate he should be prosecuted.
In the current environment it seems highly unlikely there will be an impartial investigation and objective weighing of the evidence. The days when public servants even pretended to be honest, honorable, and virtuous are long gone.
When people lose everything and have nothing left to lose, they lose it. - Gerald Celente.
Obama let them down as he was destined to do. They know their time is short. If you live in an urban area, you should have CCW and always carry a pistol. Preferably something with 18 rounds in the handle. It’s going to get far worse and broader before it gets better. And we’re looking at 2.5 years to go.
And that doesn’t even include the Putin, ISIS, border and other issues that are only going to get worse.
See tag line.
Good point. Word posted here that the grand jury is ALREADY being convened. Autopsy? Facts? Nah. Star chamber time.
If the thug had gotten the gun from the officer and killed him, we’d barely have heard about it.
Sorry but we have a lynch mob and a media stoking it.. what makes you think facts matter
I find it hard to believe that a veteran cop would be dumb enough, even in the heat of the moment, to kill somebody right out in the open with with his hands raised. Cops nowadays know that everything they do can show up on somebody’s smart phone.
Also, the shot pattern clearly shows that the cop was not aiming dead center, as he would have done if he really wanted to kill him. The wound to the top of his head can best be explained by the perp falling forward and receiving the last bullet as he was charging the cop.
When you see the images from Ferguson and the press spin this whole thing is that White has been change to Black and Black has been changed to White by the race hustlers, and you have such one sleaze sitting in the “Black House” pulling the strings in D.C. = District of Columbia!!!
When are Whites going to punch this bubble that ENOUGH is enough???
The sheeple will bleat up until they enter the slaughterhouse...................
That was my theory as well.................
Looks like there’s is no way that even Clinton Network News is able to spin the truth 180!!!
I don’t think it will pretty the day the White’s patience is flowing over, having had ENOUG of this race hustler game???
Even blacks have Al and Jesse’s number. They have both been Booed at their latest try at fund raising off this stupidity................
How will they be able to explain the connection; looting and the BIG archangel Michael???
That's totally consistent with the video. The shop owner confronts the thug - thug pushes shop owner - then rather than just leave, the thug turns around wanting to fight. Hothead, chip on shoulder bully... we've seen his type before...he's NOT a gentle giant, he's a thug.,
