Officer Darren Wilson Suffered “Orbital Blowout Fracture to Eye Socket” During Mike Brown Attack
Gateway Pundit ^ | 19 Aug 2014 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 08/19/2014 8:22:57 AM PDT by mandaladon

The Gateway Pundit can now confirm from two local St. Louis sources that police Officer Darren Wilson suffered facial fractures during his confrontation with deceased 18 year-old Michael Brown. Officer Wilson clearly feared for his life during the incident that led to the shooting death of Brown. This was after Michael Brown and his accomplice Dorian Johnson robbed a local Ferguson convenience store.

Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.” This comes from a source within the District Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis County Police.

He obviously punched himself after he shot Saint Michael in order to call it self-defense.

PING to your attention.

More ‘proof’ that the officer was justified in using the gun to try and stop Mike Brown.

As they did with the George Zimmerman case, the Racists will say that he did that to himself AFTER the shooting.

I know there are protocols for all of this, but allowing a week of rioting before releasing key information like this is not helpful.

The nation, including itelligent people who share our views, were immediately led to believe the police shot a guy in his back 30 feet away. Now, that’s an impression that’s hard to reverse.

No, it was the recoil from the gun that whacked him in the left eye. Oh wait, he’s right-handed. Never mind.

Right. It’s about the “genocide” of black males by white cops.

Meanwhile in Chicago, Detroit, New York, Los Angeles, Miami, etc, black males continue to kill eachother on an average of at least 10 per day.

And abortions continue to claim a vastly disproportionate number of black children.

C'mon, you knooooow he needed an alibi 'cause he shot the big teddy bear six times in the back (with his hands up!) so Wilson did it to himself AFTER the illegal, racist shooting.

I find it hard to believe that a veteran cop, even in the heat of the moment, would be stupid enough to execute a suspect out in the open with his hands raised. Nowadays, cops know their every move can be recorded on somebody’s iPhone.

..This keeps looking better for Wilson

Zimmerman got his nose busted and his head beaten in and they still tried to railroad him on a murder conviction.

Everyone knows that if Wilson isn't convicted of murder, that all of St. Louis is going to burn. Not that it would be much of a loss.

Eric Holder is fully aware of the medical condition of Wilson and the corroborating witness statements. He is not coming to Ferguson to plead on Wilson's behalf. He brought a posse and a rope and he's looking for a tree.

The rush to judgement to “lynch” Officer Wislon, by the MSM, Sharpton, Jackson< Holder and all will prove to be a complete disaster. If they do try Wilson, let’s hope he gets a change of venue.

We have known for days about this attack on the cop but it seems some would rather ignore all the facts and try to convict the cop because they hate cops.

Seems the more comes out the better it is for this cop.

I remember one freeper stating how the cop is not allowed to shoot and even went as far as citing a court case, TN v Garner but would not listen to me about case law after or objective reasonableness or totality of circumstances.

Now more info comes out the cop was right to shoot, he was attacked the thug was not running away and he was seen robbing and assaulting a store owner.

Remember when a handful on here was always saying how the cop is wrong to shoot , they think they’re military, and the thug was targeted ?

Yea funny how those posters have disappeared over the last two days.

so you want the cops to also go through a public court of opinion without facts.

Here is a better idea, everyone in this country should stop watching the media and get a mind for themselves.

Far too many sheep in this country which become back seat drivers after watching the likes of CNN, MSNBC, FOX

Truth matters.

Hysterical black racists think whoever ‘feels’ the strongest gets to win. They’re wrong. Facts have weight.

Black ‘truth haters’ didn’t want the shop owner video to come out because that video put to rest the ‘gentle giant’ lie. It also showed the MO of the thug. When confronted, he roughed up the shop owner - then turned on him a second time when he thought the shop owner might stand up to him. That’s probably what happened with Wilson.

Yes, and it is because of the media and the Federal Government, and the Governor of Missouri. Not the local Police Department.

You probably haven't seen or even heard of the Police Report for the shooting incident, because the media doesn't want to publish it. It has been available for days.

I have the report number and pictures of it.

Not a Doc, but here is the treatment:

Orbital Floor Blowout Treatment

Depending on the damage, most people who suffer an orbital blowout will require surgery. ER physicians will first make sure you are stabilized and tend to any injuries that require immediate treatment. They will also prescribe general antibiotics to prevent infection. You will be instructed not to blow your nose for several weeks, as doing so can cause additional swelling, injury and possibly air to enter the tissue. Ice packs should be gently applied to the orbit for the first 48 hours. You will then be instructed to see your optometrist or ophthalmologist to make sure you do not have any other damage to your eye. Next, you will be referred to a maxillofacial surgeon who specializes in the repair of orbital blowout fractures.

The CT scan posted at the gateway pundit site indicates University of Iowa. Is this a random example of an orbital blowout Fx dated 1/10/2011? If so, this should spark new conspiracy theories for those so inclined. It seems a tad reckless to me.

I’m really impressed with the police officer......he was trained well obviously.
To me, it looks loke he shot the guy in the arm.....thinking that would stop him......and kept shooting in a straight line up the arm when he realizes this monster wouldn’t stop......
finally giving him the head taps.

In a perfect world, they would give the officer medals!!!!,

I applaud your sarcasm tag, however, there are those on FR who will view your comment as a very possible and legitimate “question” and seek to argue that and other inane “possibilities”.

“What if he intentionally rammed his face into a stationary object to injure himself?”

“Did he pay a thug to hit him?”

And on and on...

If the race baiters want to get their way, they need to push for and get passed a constitutional amendment that states that whites do not have the right to defend themselves against violent blacks. Until they do that, they need to shut their traps.

I knew they were in trouble when I heard Sharpton’s speech on Saturday. (Paraphrasing). “ Nuttin mattas in dis matter cept Michael Brown were unarmed. Da video, wedder he were goin to cop car, has nuttin ta do wit anyting.”

Now we can see why it isn’t important that Michael was a gentle giant walking across the street, that he had his arms up surrendering, that he tried to run and was shot in the back. Now it is just down to he was unarmed.

NEVER let them define the agenda. It’s always wrong and mean spirited and results in miscarriages of justice (LAPD, Duke Lacrosse, Zimmerman, now Wilson)
