The Missouri Governor has already violated every law of decency. Obviously he is catering to the criminal element in his community. I think there are enough decent people, black, and white in Missouri to vote him out in 2016 when he comes up for re election. He practically convicted the police officer of unjustified shooting without the officer even telling his side of what happened. That is outrageous.

Has the office told us his side of the story? Believe he has been interviewed and we look forward to hearing his side of the story - has the official autopsy been released yet?

Yes troubling ....

It is troubling to you because it points away from the officer doing anything wrong. Anything less then a public hanging of the officer will be troubling to you.

You do know in the State Of Missouri a Grand Jury has to review all the evidence and decide on charges if any. They only meet on Wednesdays. It may take two to three weeks. Didn't you play this same game with Treyvon.

When the photo of the officers face comes out, they will crawl back under their rocks. The black activist then will do as they always do, and make up lies.

Eye Socket Fracture (Fracture Of The Orbit)

What Is It?

The eye socket is a bony cup that surrounds and protects the eye. The rim of the socket is made of fairly thick bones, while the floor and nasal side of the socket is paper thin in many places. A fracture is a broken bone in the eye socket involving the rim, the floor or both.

• Orbital rim fracture — These are caused by a direct impact to the face, most commonly by an automobile dashboard or steering wheel during a car crash. Because a great deal of force is required to cause these fractures, they often occur with extensive injuries to other facial bones, and sometimes injuries to the brain. Even if the damage is limited to the eye area, there may be additional injuries to the eye itself, such as the optic nerve (responsible for vision), the eye muscles, the nerves that provide sensation in the forehead and cheek, the sinuses around the eye and the tear duct. There are two types of orbital rim fractures. A zygomatic fracture involves the lower edge of the eye rim, which is part of the cheekbone. A frontal bone fracture or frontal sinus fracture involves the upper edge of the eye rim, which is part of the forehead's frontal bone.

• Indirect orbital floor fracture ("blowout fracture")— This occurs when the bony rim of the eye remains intact, but the paper thin floor of the eye socket cracks or ruptures. This can cause a small hole in the floor of the eye socket that can trap parts of the eye muscles and surrounding structures. The injured eye may not move normally in its socket, which can cause double vision. Most blowout fractures are caused by an impact to the front of the eye from something bigger than the eye opening, such as a baseball, a fist or an automobile dashboard.

• Direct orbital floor fracture — If an orbital rim fracture extends into nearby parts of the eye socket floor, both the rim and the socket floor are fractured. Approximately 2.5 million traumatic eye injuries, including eye socket fractures, occur each year in the United States. About 85% of these injuries happen by accident, during contact sports, at work, in car crashes or while doing home repair projects. About 15% are caused by violent assaults.

Nixon has already made it impossible for Wilson to get a fair trial(if he goes to trial) in MO. when he said the cop should be prosecuted.It is totally unethical and immoral for any governor to make comments about any on going investigation in his own state.But Nixon -like most democrats(including obama)-is more interested in playing politics than justice.The "Wilson Defense Fund" begins.

The big thug beat the police officer nearly to death. He was a threat to the officer, and to the community. The Grand Jury will listen to all the evidence, and they will exonerate the decorated officer. The burners, and looters will get drunk one more time, and then they will crawl back into their holes, and go home.

With all the false allegations made in this case, it wouldn't be surprising this is false also. It's kind of hard for people to see a photo and think hours anyway.

And what is up with Officer "Johnson" (another word for dick)? He said, "I have a black son at home with tattoos who wears his pants halfway down..."? I guess lack of black father's in the home is not the reason black kids are assholes after all.

Did you see Eric Holder meet OJO today in Ferguson? I thought I was watching Huggy Bear meets Al Jolson. "What up brother!" How does our chief law enforcement officer get away with speaking jive to a black police officer? How disrespectful can you get? These are both educated, respected men and they devolve to ghetto talk within 3 seconds of meeting eachother?

That is what is wrong with black America! Even the most educated leaders act like damned fools, minstrels, and ghetto-trash when they get within 3 feet of eachother.

Ann Coulter puts Holder and Nixon to shame in exposing the intentional slandering and libeling of good police by the Marxist media...

Darren Wilson, the Ferguson police officer who shot and killed unarmed African American teenager Michael Brown, didn’t call in the shooting.

Brown’s body was left in the middle of the street for more than four hours. No aid was administered to him. No ambulance was called. Goldie Taylor of MSNBC’s “The Grio” reports that, according to witnesses, Brown’s body was hauled away in a black SUV.

Hopefully they will start to show the photos of black on white crime. Just a few days ago a pregnant woman was assaulted by the knockout game pleasure seeker as an example. As the days, months and years go by the sympathy is more and more reduced. And with the decline in our economic status, well the totalitarian state will have all the answers soon enough. You'll see. For what you elect that gives the crumbs also has voted this in. Since no progressive has stood up to remove the police state laws and rules, don't expect any changes and in fact it will get much worse at some point.

Ohh so now you want a crime scene to be disturbed in order to get the dead guy to the hospital? Guess what, he'd still be dead and lawyers would have a field day.

Still mad about being shot in the back with his hands up? Ohh wait....
