Michael Brown Shooting Witness Releases Video: ‘I Knew This Was Not Right’ (Video)
The WRAP ^ | August 18th, 2014 | Tim Molloy

Posted on 08/18/2014 2:41:25 PM PDT by Mariner

A woman who says she witnessed the shooting of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown has released video to CNN that shows Brown lying in the street as officers stand by.

The shooting has spawned a week of protests in which demonstrators have demanded an explanation for Brown's killing. Police in Ferguson, Mo., say officer Darren Wilson opened fire because Brown tried to take his gun during an altercation.

Piaget Crenshaw said she has waited until now to release the video because she feared for her safety and was waiting for police to release Wilson's name, which they did Friday. She also said police could have released her video Friday — when they also released surveillance footage that they said showed Brown stealing cigarillos from a convenience store before the shooting. She said police had her video because they confiscated her phone.

Not good.

Two eye witnesses saying essentially the same thing. Cop shooting in pursuit, nails him as soon as he stops and turns.

This is NOT legal testimony under threat or perjury, but it doesn't look good for the cop.

If it proves the cop was wrong, he should pay the price. But I won’t weep for another dead thug.

How exactly is it not good?
The narrative has been “shot in the back!!!!!!1!1!”
Since autopsy doesn’t support that... Change the narrative!
And “unarmed” does not equal “not a threat”.

All of the shots that hit him were from the the front. Her video was of his carcass. Proves nothing except that she is possibly a liar and perhaps a future perjurer, if she testifies in court.

Another black liar? Probably.

Crenshaw said it took her about 30 seconds to run and get her phone, which she used to film Wilson standing over Brown's body.

Assuming this ‘witness’ is telling the truth, someone here said earlier that if you commit a violent crime, attack an officer and then flee the police can shoot at you. Can anyone verify?

Have you seen the video ?

The reason I ask is that because the only video at that link is of Johnson getting interviewed.

This woman’s video only shows the scene AFTER it was all over. She ‘says’ “Cop shooting in pursuit, nails him as soon as he stops and turns.”, just like Johnson did(lied).

There is no video of that happening, is there?

What I got from it.

She witnessed Wilson tussling with Brown to get him into car.
She leaves room to go get her phone
Comes back and videos Wilson pacing back and forth over body.

So she filled in the 30 seconds she was gone with NOT eye-witness info.

Please correct me if wrong.

After all this is over, the result will be that cops will be much more careful ..... when the perp is a member of America’s #1 minority. So there will be more and more crime by America’s #1 minority.

Of course, once one version of the story is out there, anyone can pick it up and use it.

Let’s see what the forensic evidence says.

So headline says ‘witness releases video’. yYur comment says ‘see the video at the bottom of the article. Do you see where one might get the notion that the video released by witness is at the end of the article? Was it? Not that I could tell. Did I miss it? Or did you mislead?

She lied her ass off. She said Brown “body-jerked as if he was hit, turned around and put his hands up”, upon which Smith delivered the coup de grace. Problem with her lies is that all of the shots were from the front.

Johnson wasn’t standing beside Brown. The instant he heard a gunshot, Johnson went and hid behind a car. When he saw Brown standing there taunting police, he yelled “GO BRO”. That is when Mike charged at the officer.

One would have to articulate that the perp was an imminent and deadly threat to someone. And the crime committed prior to the fligbt has to be “heinous”

"The video contains no new info."

I agree.

But it's a second witness saying the kid had his hands up when shot. Also that the cop was shooting in pursuit.

Will they say it that way in court under threat of perjury? Who knows...

There is also testimony there were about 3 cars stopped behind the cop car. Hopefully those folks will come forward and tell what they saw.

Her video is probably the one that shows Brown lying on the ground and you can hear a guy in the background that witnessed the shooting saying how Brown “double-backed” and charged the cop. She probably didn’t realize that his voice was even on there because it contradicts everything she said.

That means the officer did have a struggle with the guy. The guy runs away from the officer; heads back from being shot in the front not the back of his head like that lying friend of his told reporters. He was shot in the arm a number of times and continued to come toward the officer. He probably told the cop he was going to kill him after being shot.

Officer tried a number of times to get the guy down. No one has shown any facts that the guy didn’t assault the officer/keeps showing the guy fought the officer.

That woman from this article ran to CNN to keep the narrative going. White cop guns down black teenager.

The only ‘truth’ that Johnson told was that they were walking down the street when the cop came by and told them to “get the f on the sidewalk”. According to Johnson, he and Mike (politely, I’m sure) said “NO”. He said the officer stamped on his brakes and backed up. After that point, it was all lies.

Agree there is no dispute now that the thug robbed a store.
He also assaulted the store owner.
Seems no one is saying he did not attack the cop.
The cop had to go to hospital.

So how the hell can anyone still keep this B/S up about the cop being wrong is beyond me.
granted there is the usual suspects of those wanting cash, those wanting in to the investigation and those who just hate cops , but any normal person can see this seems a justified shot.

Nothing to see here that we haven’t already seen.

The attorney basically repeats the ‘shot in the back’ narrative, which the autopsy results contradict.

This ‘new’ witness was running to get her cell phone when the action occurred.

She seems however, to be the new “Jentel” - a witness who allegedly has damning evidence. BUT, her credibility is enhanced by the fact that she speaks The King’s English !

Her evidence, however, is neither damning or new. It changes NOTHING.

Not good.

Not bad...

Other witnesses said the suspect double back at the cop..

Others witnesses said the suspect was shot in the back...

Best to wait until the evidence is all revealed...

Which should be forthcoming since they're are probably 300 feds, cops, and locals investigating this.

It's a shooting, and with the amount of physical evidence, it should not be too complex to figure out what happened and if the cops version is consistent with that evidence.

The only thing making this difficult are those claiming to be witnesses, who've already made false statements.

Their motives are likely due to racism.

Miss Crenshaw is the kind of witness that starts riots. She saw very little and fills in the gaps with outrageous details she did not actually witness based on what she thinks happened. The community then takes this as fact and go ape.

This could all be avoided by: young men being taught that “thug life” is stupid and will get them killed, is not glamorous, and whocares wtwt punk criminals think-BE A FREAKING MAN AND NOT A DAMN ANIMAL. Be responsible, take pride in working for a living, learn a trade other than drugs crime rap and looting, don’t expect others to support your punk are, you are not entitled, nobody owes you squat.
If they learned that, life would be different!

Looks really bad. I mean, the cop reached out through his car window and tried to pull Big Mike into the car with him. Then the dirty racist cop murdered Mike in cold blood as he was on his knees with hands up. Mike’s drug toking accomplice in the strong arm liquor store robbery they did together just moments before said so. so it must be true. And now another witness steps forward a week later to corroborate the felon’s eyewitness story after much coaching by a race/poverty pimping lawyer out to cash in for the big bucks and become famous. Yup, looks bad for the murdering racist cop all right. /s

Of course the hood is going to say what they say. In the hood, snitches get stitches.

Bum rushing Cops after trying to take their weapon and assaulting them can sometimes get you some lead poisoning.
