A Witness Conversation Unknowingly Captured at the Scene of the Ferguson Shooting is a Game-Changer
IJReview ^ | August 17, 2014 | Ed Itor

Posted on 08/17/2014 8:58:27 AM PDT by gunsequalfreedom

A A previously unnoticed detail in a background conversion of a video taken minutes after the Ferguson shooting could change the course of the investigation into Mike Brown’s death.

The original video poster appears sympathetic to the narrative that Mike Brown was shot unarmed with his hands in the air. But he unknowingly picks up conversation between a man who saw the altercation and another neighbor.

#1 How’d he get from there to there? #2 Because he ran, the police was still in the truck – cause he was like over the truck {crosstalk} #2 But him and the police was both in the truck, then he ran – the police got out and ran after him {crosstalk} #2 Then the next thing I know he doubled back toward him cus - the police had his gun drawn already on him – #1. Oh, the police got his gun #2 The police kept dumpin on him, and I’m thinking the police kept missing – he like – be like – but he kept coming toward him {crosstalk} #2 Police fired shots – the next thing I know – the police was missing #1 The Police? #2 The Police shot him #1 Police? #2 The next thing I know … I’m thinking … the dude started running … (garbled something about “he took it from him”) This is terribly important because if Mike Brown had been shot, and he advanced towards the cop instead of surrendering, it would substantiate the narrative that the policeman shot in self-defense due to the fact that he was being threatened with severe bodily harm.

This corroborates an account of the event given by a friend of Officer Darren Wilson: Well, then Michael takes off and gets to be about 35 feet away. And, Darren’s first protocol is to pursue. So, he stands up and yells, “Freeze!” Michael and his friend turn around. And Michael taunts him… And then all the sudden he just started bumrushing him. He just started coming at him full speed. And, so he just started shooting. And, he just kept coming. And, so he really thinks he was on something.”

So, did he stop and put his hands up and then was shot or did he turn and start charging the officer and kept going even after being shot? You decide!

Rev Al isn’t gonna like dis’. Bro’ Jesse isn’t either. If indeed the “Gentle Giant” was coming toward the cop then it sounds like self defense. Meanwhile, the riots and looting will continue to no end as animals continue to behave as animals.

No it won't. You could have a filmed confession from Brown and it wouldn't make any difference. If the agenda isn'the clear at this point you are either niave or obtuse.

None of this really matters except for the police officer that shot the thug. This reminds me of a video I saw on TV where the maid was caught on camera stealing items from guest’s suitcases and dresser draws while they were at breakfast. When she was confronted by the police and motel management and while being shown the video she actually denied four or five times that it was her. This was a very sharp video by the way.

This is the way the people in Ferguson will react. Total denial.

On the one hand, cops should be able to handle an unarmed attacker without shooting him. On the other hand if this Brown guy was the guy in the video of the store robbery, he was built like the Frankenstein monster. If he did rush a cop and was NOT shot beforehand, he might have been on drugs.

Sounds like MB was on something or it was suicide by cop.

Both story lines have got the have the race-pimps and the DJ (but i digress) looking for the chicken exit to get off this ride.

With all the obamaphones around, one would think that a number of recordings would be surfacing. Unless Michael was in fact charging the officer.

Hope the officer’s attorney has a copy. It also sounds like their talking about Brown taking the officer’s gun.

You have summed it up. I’m traveling in Spain right now and all I have seen in every restaurant tv is howling mobs of half-clothed, unintelligible black “youth” who look as if they came out of the slums of Soweto. And many people are asking where our self-proclaimed black king stands on this. I haven’t heard a word from him, except his first statement criticizing the police.

I just heard that Eric Holder and the family had a second autopsy performed...obviously, they didnt like the results of the first one This case is really an easy one, ..this giant came at the officer, was told “freeze”...didn’t comply...and the officer did what he was TRAINED to do. The dispatch tapes should reveal a lot. I can tell by the Governors and all the other officials statements and answers...they know this is a justified shooting, but are petrified to say it. This outta be good..lol

Actually, if you’re fluency in ebonics includes at least one twelve-letter hyphenated noun, as well as the adjective derived from it, you can probably translate about half of what’s being said by the guy who’s commenting in the foreground.

And the only reason for the multiple shots fired was that Brown was coming at the officer and the shots weren't stopping him.

So Wilson just kept firing until he emptied his mag.

That old expression, “Feels no pain”, comes into play here. Someone who is seriously drunk or on drugs feels no pain. For a totally out-of-control individual,pepper spray will only piss ‘em off further. If you use a baton, a broken clavical will render that arm unusable. But for that, you have to be close to the person, close enough where he/she can over-power you and take your weapons from you and create ever more mayhem. So...what are you going to do?

I bet if you asked the average person on the street in much of Europe they believe the USA is 50 percent black due to all the TV, music, sports and inner city depictions. I’ve traveled extensively through Europe West and East and found they had a poor understanding outside of CNN Europe propaganda - worse than the US. They have little understanding outside of the Marxist - class warfare template and little grasp of our invasion - colonization from the South except that the US deserves it as we stole the land and enslaved non white populations! ha - Can’t count the number of times I got these responses and try to explain what gives their countries the right to their land or to maintain their cultures? Nothing but hypocrisy and ignorance.

Absolutely right-with the anti-white agenda of Holder and add a Democrat governor and the script has already been written to make the cop a patsy!

At least 26 people have been shot across Chicago this weekend........

The miss-informed/un-informed of Obama's racebase...living well without jobs in Chicago...food stamps, unemployed, housing assistance, using EBT cards, some drinking, some doping all it would seem, making more babies to suckle at the Democratic Tit. (responsible American Negros have thrown up their hands...let the politicians solve the mess, they caused it...)

It doesn't matter at this point. The guy could have been throwing flaming daggers at the cop, and the outcome would have been the same. A white cop shot a black kid, and that's all the fuel the MSM, the race pimps, and the dept. of “just-us” clan need to stoke the fire. This fits their agenda, and they will milk it for all it's worth. Sharpton, Jackson, Holder, Obama, the black panthers, they could care less about this kid, as long as him losing his life provides them with an opportunity to exploit for their own personal gain. Yes, the circumstances are murky, and yes, a kid lost his life. But that is no excuse to go out and riot and loot, and those who did fell right into the trap that the MSM, the race baiters, and the government agitators set up for them.
The black panthers, the rainbow coalition, acorn, SPLC, and the holder DOJ make the KKK look like rank amateurs when it come to racial violence and exploitation. And the black community keeps falling for the divide and conquer strategy every time.

It sounds to me from the conversation that the officer was firing warning shots that were deliberately missing the charging Jolly Mean Giant.....till the perp showed no signs of stopping....and then one purposely-aimed shot dropped him in his tracks.

Rushing a cop???? Superman Mikey Brown was on PCP, and that's why he wanted all those cigarellos.. To soak in PCP and sell them! Okay, I'm guessing but probably right.

My guess is the video surfaced well after the initial interview stage. As to why they did not interview him even absent having the video, can they practically interview everyone standing around the scene?
