Missouri cop was badly beaten before shooting Michael Brown, says source
Fox News ^ | August 20, 2014 | Hollie McKay

Posted on 08/20/2014 11:25:24 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

EXCLUSIVE: Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, Mo., police officer whose fatal shooting of Michael Brown touched off more than a week of demonstrations, suffered severe facial injuries, including an orbital (eye socket) fracture, and was nearly beaten unconscious by Brown moments before firing his gun, a source close to the department's top brass told FoxNews.com.

“The Assistant (Police) Chief took him to the hospital, his face all swollen on one side,” said the insider. “He was beaten very severely.”

According to the well-placed source, Wilson was coming off another case in the neighborhood on Aug. 9 when he ordered Michael Brown and his friend Dorain Johnson to stop walking in the middle of the road because they were obstructing traffic. However, the confrontation quickly escalated into physical violence, the source said..

“They ignored him and the officer started to get out of the car to tell them to move," the source said. "They shoved him right back in, that’s when Michael Brown leans in and starts beating Officer Wilson in the head and the face.

The source claims that there is "solid proof" that there was a struggle between Brown and Wilson for the policeman’s firearm, resulting in the gun going off – although it still remains unclear at this stage who pulled the trigger. Brown started to walk away according to the account, prompting Wilson to draw his gun and order him to freeze. Brown, the source said, raised his hands in the air, and turned around saying, "What, you're going to shoot me?"

At that point, the source told FoxNews.com, the 6 foot, , 4 inch, 300-pound Brown charged Wilson,........

The pics of the badly beaten cop’s face will surely surface shortly, and then this will all be put to rest.

we’ve been hearing about this account for days - still hasn’t made it to the liberal talking heads.

IF this is true, this deal is over. Assaulting a cop, reaching for his gun, attempting to flee, all mean this was a good shoot.

In a sane, rational world yes.

I really think we could have crystal clear hi-def video of the whole thing and there would still be people who would call for Wilson's head.

The pictures of Officer Wilson’s facial injuries have probably been viewed by many (25 or more) in the media but no copies have been allowed. Just doesn’t take that long to take and print a picture then present picture for viewing. Smell something else in the wind. Not certain what that smell is though.

"then this will all be put to rest."

You're joking right? They could have the "Gentle Giant" on tape reaching in and beating the cop and this still would not be put to rest. There will be more riots, that is a guarantee from the racial grievances crowd...

The similarities between this and the Zimmerman incident are incredible.

1. Innocent young black boy with bright college future was on his way to meet his family.
2. Sweet boy is killed for no reason by racist man.
3. Pictures\videos appear that show that black boy is no saint but rather your typical gangsta POS. Supporters say “so what?”
4. Evidence that the black boy was the violent one and started the entire incident comes forth. Supporters say “so what”
5. Photos of beaten up opponent appears. Supporters still 100% unmoved.

Back in the 90’s - there was afemale police officer in TX that was beaten badly by a black male perp after being pulled over for a traffic violation. The man’s daughter was scream at him to get back in the vehicle...the officer recovered after having facial reconstruction - but later resigned due to the stress....she was unable to defend herself and did not pull her service weapon...

This goes back to Brown being held responsible for his actions from the time he started using violence and bullying his way around the neighborhood to get his way - sooner or later - this was going to end in his death - or several other people...

What would would have happened once he got the officer’s weapon — ???

This officer didn’t do anything wrong - all the witnesses statements - actions of both parties involved - all go back to Brown and his actions before, during, and well, there’s no after...time ran out for this thug!

I'd say beating that the cop went above and beyond. He could have just called for backup and let this dangerous monster get away.

Had that been the case, perhaps that video would have never been broadcast and we would have never known that the "gentle giant" was a sarcastic name given to that monster.

You know folks, there is a chance this thing was caught on someone’s cell phone. The cops confiscated the cell phones right after the episode. This could be why the rumor that Brown’s accomplice may have admitted to lying.

Just speculation, but there is a lot we don’t know yet.

Holder has taken the lead – calling . . . the case “troubling.”

The Head of the Department of Just Us and Our People troubled by other cases.. actual explanation why no investigation of voter interfering:

"When you compare what people endured in the South in the 60s to try to get the right to vote for African Americans, and to compare what people were subjected to there to what happened in Philadelphia—which was inappropriate, certainly that -- to describe it in those terms I think does a great disservice to people who put their lives on the line, who risked all, for my people." Holder.

Ferguson Headline?

Head of the Department of Just Us and Our People explains to the public why punishing the Ferguson policeman is the only option: "When you compare the hundreds of thousands of my people murdered by white sheriffs and policemen . . . to worry about the Ferguson policeman does a great disservice to my people."

(Do I really need a /s here? There's question mark following the word headline.)

Exactly.

The narrative has hardened to the point that any attempt to provide a different explanation sets off a new round of violent protests.

They’re not interested in facts; they want vengeance.

Not for thinking residents of Ferguson. Chaos probably could have been avoided if this information had been released as soon as bogus reports of the event made it to the media.

How many minority members will wake up and realized that they were played by media, a governor, black race whores and a DC administration that wanted an issue?

Surely you jest.

(1) The police officer's face is obviously bruised because he used his head to hit Michael Brown's fist.

(2) The officer should have never told Brown and his friend to move out of the center of the street. Had the officer simply waited until Brown and his friend decided to let traffic proceed there would have been no incident.

(3) Tell me, when you see someone walking down the middle of the street like they own it and purposely holding up traffic, what do you do? You don't even honk your horn. You just sit there and wait quietly, right?

If the witness participated in the assault on the cop, maybe they told him he was going down for murder. Death occurring during the commission of a felony.

When pictures of Zimmerman were released the press pretended not to notice he had been beaten up.

They’ve got their agenda.

Michael Brown proved he was a hot head bully in the strong armed robbery of the store. We saw that video. We saw Brown in the high glory of the entitled bully. He wasn’t going to put up with any crap from the store owner. I suspect he also had no intention of putting up with any crap from a police officer either. It’s the code of the loser.

You forgot item 6 in your list. The public at large is afraid to speak out and calling like it is for fear of being labeled racist. Nobody puts their name to a letter to the editor, calls a local talk radio show or organizes a march in support of right.

"The question arises is this: Is the account in this Fox report Officer Wilson’s or is it an eyewitness account?"

According to the article, it's "a source close to the department's top brass," which means it isn't an eye witness but a police insider.

Amazingly, the Brown’s attorney said that even if Brown assaulted Wilson and grabbed for his gun, that was not enough to shoot him because he had attempted to flee. I disagree, but this case will hinge on whether Brown charged Wilson after the first encounter. The position of Brown’s arms in the street would indicate he was NOT surrendering.

They don’t even want that. They want more free stuff. Just like with GZ and Saint Tray, Crump wants an arrest so he can sue for damages. No arrest, no damages. Before Crump got involved, they wanted the officer’s name. Now, they want an arrest.

Not really. What I have already observed in dummyville:

- Wilson paid somebody to beat him up, just like in a Dirty Harry movie

- One of the cops guarding the body for 6 hours was Wilson, and he didn’t look hurt.

- Even if he was attacked, Wilson should have just shot Brown in the leg to stop him.

You can’t fix stupid.

If this had turned out differently and brown (little ‘b’ no further respect for him or his supporters) had killed Officer Wilson and brown was arrested would Ferguson residents, of the black community, have rioted and looted demanding brown’s release from custody? Would al and jessie show up and claim it was justifiable that brown killed Officer Wilson? Appears as could be, no matter the result. Besides what does the Ferguson community, al and jessie want if not to justify a death? Blood is smelled, in the water, and blood is what they want (imho).
