Well, Well …

… innocent lad Michael Brown, to quote that famous philosopher Britney Spears (that’s sarcasm, folks), is “Not That Innocent”:

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

“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, the 6-foot-4, 292-pound Brown charged Wilson, prompting the officer to fire at least six shots at him, including the fatal bullet that penetrated the top of Brown’s skull, according to an independent autopsy conducted at the request of Brown’s family.

Wilson suffered a fractured eye socket in the fracas, and was left dazed by the initial confrontation, the source said. He is now “traumatized, scared for his life and his family, injured and terrified” that a grand jury, which began hearing evidence on Wednesday, will “make some kind of example out of him,” the source said.

In fact, if Michael Brown were still alive, he would almost certainly be headed for a long term in jail.



    Outstanding warrant calls for extradition after failure to appear at theft trial

    Dorian was a bad egg as well, failure to appear for his trial on theft charges… So is this a case of birds of a feather flock together?

    Note that Dorian is going to college according to the article. So the idea that wanting to go to college is mutually exclusive of Michael Brown being a thug himself is a liberal trope.

  2. A thought, given the political MO of Obama, Holder’s actions are merely a means to distract the public from all the other scandals and policy failures now coming to a head.

    Squirrel, squirrel, squirrel!

  3. Journalists are creating the story, not covering it. Seemingly to bolster the case for the ‘poor innocent minorities.’ BUT is that really the effect? Or is it just creating more trouble for those minorities who think Rev Sharpton can ride into town & give them fame & fortune?

  4. Breaking: Mike Brown’s Rap Lyrics Surface: “LIGHTS OUT, Gonna Knock Your A$$ Out” (Audio)

    The Gentle Giant sings! and the money quote:

    According to his grandmother, Desuirea Harris, “All he wanted to do is make music.”

    “Everyday he made one or two more records,” she explains. “He rapped about life in general — about what he went through and people went through. Just life.”

    Everyday life of Michael Brown? Robbing stores, bullying little people, punching cops?
