Preliminary Report: Over A Dozen Witnesses Back Darren Wilson’s Story
Chuck Ross 12:21 AM 08/19/2014
According to a preliminary report from a St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter, police say that more than a dozen witnesses back Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson’s version of the events that led to the fatal shooting of Michael Brown.
Post-Dispatch reporter Christine Byers sent a tweet late Monday teasing her findings.
Wilson’s claims match a woman who called herself “Josie” who called into Dana Loesch’s radio show on Friday. CNN confirmed with police officials that what Josie told Loesch matches what Wilson says happened during his encounter with Brown.
According to Josie, Wilson, a six-year police veteran, claims Brown assaulted and then “bum rushed” him during their encounter on August 9.
The assault followed after Wilson drove upon Brown and a friend walking in the street. Wilson told the two to move to the sidewalk. After driving forward, Wilson reportedly received a dispatch call about a strong-arm robbery at a convenience store.
Brown allegedly stole cigars from the store and shoved a store clerk. According to Josie, Wilson says he saw the cigars and then confronted Brown and his friend.
Wilson reversed his car back toward Brown and his friend, Dorian Johnson.
Josie said that Wilson tried to exit his cruiser but that Brown pushed the door back on him and came after him. She said that after Brown assaulted Wilson, Brown bolted, and, as “protocol” dictates, the officer pursued and ordered Brown to “freeze.”
Wilson claims Brown turned around and taunted before “bum rushing” him, according to Josie.
Wilson fired at Brown, who fell to the ground two or three feet in front of Wilson.
If “more than a dozen” witnesses back Wilson’s claim, that would outnumber the four witnesses who say that Wilson shot Brown as he was surrendering.
Johnson, who was with Brown in the store during the alleged strong-arm robbery, said that Brown was running away as he was shot. But he did not mention that incident in the convenience store when he told the media about the shooting.
Two other witnesses said that Brown was fleeing Wilson after their altercation in the cruiser. As Wilson was shooting, Brown turned around while holding his hands up to surrender, the witnesses have claimed.
A fourth witness has told the media that when Brown surrendered he fell down to his knees with his hands up.
One neighborhood eye-witness gave a different version of events.
The man was unwittingly recorded on a video posted to YouTube in which he is overheard saying that he saw Wilson firing and possibly missing. He said that he saw Brown turn around and then begin moving or running towards Wilson.
An private autopsy released Monday determined that Brown was shot at least six times. Four hit Brown on the right arm and two in the head. One of the arm shots could have possibly hit Brown as he was running from Wilson, but the other five hit Brown in the front of the body, the medical examiners determined.
They also found that the fatal shot entered the top of Brown’s head and was moving from the back to the front of his head.
The Brown family and their supporters have claimed that this is evidence that Brown was surrendering when Wilson finished shooting.

The only troll here is you. You are worse than Corporal Captain Ghostie. All you do is knock the writer or the reporter without any thing to back it up but your opinion. Which is worth zero.

Yes, the criminals did as a reaction to the killing of that kid by a cop. Who will pay for the damage to those stores? The cops aren't even stopping the looters.
Do you have any idea how much this will cost the city of Ferguson? All because of one cop who didn't know how to handle a situation.
How about we start looking a little more closely at some of the backgrounds and upbringings of these young black victims? And start in Chicago.

There's a reason why so many of these young black men have such a high disregard for authority, life and property and have such big chips on their shoulders.

It's not just about being poor and disadvantaged. Many white young men are too but aren't killing each other in the streets and winding up dead by either the authorities or each other.

There's a major breakdown somewhere in these black young men's lives. Maybe we should asking what it is.

There was a home invasion burglary in St. Louis the other day; the guy barricaded himself in the house and was armed. He was not shot to death, yet he was threatening the cops.
Guess what? He was white.
A white kid went into a head shop, right here in my town, demanding "spice"; he threw a can of redbull at the store clerk, threatened the cops, I think he even kicked him; he was not shot.
Guess what? He's white.
Three kids in CA were planning a mass killing at a high school, the cops somehow thwarted the plot when they were found to have been searching online for weapons. They were not shot. They were white.
So just stop the Chicago shyt. Nothing to do with the other at all. We're talking about cops killing people, they do not have the right to do that. That's why we have a judicial system.
I know you white supremacists have no sympathy for a dead black kid laying in the street for hours all over national tv; but, just once in your effing life, imagine if he was white and was your son.

It's pretty obvious that police force needs to be dismantled from top to bottom. I find it amazing how every single one of these baggers on here have condemned all of the actions from the black side and praised all of the actions from the white side...Yet when they are confronted with being a racist they cry he loudest. Talk about hypocrites and lying maggots they don't come any lower.
only racists like scumbag Ghost see a "black side" and a "white side".....

Absolutely not!! I believe the protestor's actions are representative of "racial distrust" more than the killing of Brown. He was just the straw that broke the camels back. Personally, I don't believe the police officers are "white bigots" but, then again, I don't live in the South.
What you don't seem to understand is that I have not cast judgment in this case. At the current time, my personal opinion about the guilt or innocence of the police officer is irrelevant as it is based on incomplete evidence. So is yours.
if the cop had been black and all the other facts were the same, would it make a difference???...

not necessarily to you, but to the mob....
