Missouri cop was badly beaten before shooting Michael Brown, says source
Fox News.com ^ | August 20, 2014 | Holly McKay

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 FoxNews.com.

“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..

This story is working its way up the media food chain. Starts on the blogs. Now it’s a Fox News source.

I would like to see a photo of the police officer at the hospital. That would easily be worth 1000 words.

Holder must be suppressing the pictures. He remembers how the pictures of Zimmerman's beaten head made people realize that he was right to shoot St. Trayvon.

In a lighter vein,according to famed attorney Jackie Chiles

You know I’m getting a little tired of people saying they weren’t there so they don’t know what happened.

Yes they weren’t there, but so what?

1.We have a great deal of evidence that shows the cop was beaten severely (see article)

2. We have evidence that Brown tried to take the cops weapon (the bullet in the upholstery of the car)

3. there are apparently several credible witnesses who corroborate the account given by a friend of the cop.

4. and we have the autopsy which shows brown was facing the cop when he was shot and credible witness that say Brown ran at the cop.

5. In addition the cop has no record of misconduct while brown was a felonious criminal juist moments before he was shot.

Granted something in the investigation may show differently, but until then I’d say it looks like a legitimate self defense shooting.

A man who could attack a cop like that, after meeting him for less than what? Five minutes tops, shows how easy it is for him to administer lethal force in any setting. Somewhere in Ferguson, I’ll bet there are a few girls or young women who also got The Brown Treatment, meaning where he uses his fists or threats thereof to communicate. They would be hunted down, pilloried and ‘dealt with’ by their Hood Brothers if any such women dared to speak up.

I suppose we ought to consider the feelings of the lunatic fringe and come up with a logical explanation. Anyone that saw “Dirty Harry” with Clint Eastwood will remember the central villain, Skorpio. Well, when he wanted to frame the cop what did he do? He found this dude who owned some state-of-the-art whack-a-mole equipment and paid him to do a number about his head and shoulders, so that he was beat to a pulp.

Except that in this case it was the cop acting the role of Skorpio. Right after he shot the kid up he went and paid for his beat down. Yea, he framed the poor little Sunday school scholar to justify his brutally murdering him in cold blood.

There, Sal Alinsky would be proud!

But I’m going to go with the facts of the case as so far presented. I really don’t have an agenda to stir up a racial divide. I’ll leave that to Jesse and Al.

Officer Wilson certainly was railroaded.

One thing that did not come across initially was that, as the Chief said, the robbery involving Brown was a separate incident from the shooting, which was the reason why he was able to release the information to the press.

What did not come across well was the press had made specific Sunshine requests related to information about THE ROBBERY , and not the shooting.

Therefore, since the media requested the information on the robbery, the media had to be aware of the fact that Brown had been involved in a robbery immediately before the shooting and that there was a police report on file regarding the robbery.

Given the time line, the media would have had to have been aware of the existence of the robbery and the report the Sunday after the shooting.

So the whole time the media was spinning Brown as the Sainted Gentele Giant they knew he had been involved in a strong arm robbery and that there was much more to this case than they were letting on to.

They sure did rail road the officer.

This also tends to absolve the Police from the release of the video because under the law, they had no reason to withhold the information related to the robbery.

Nope.

The source also said the dashboard and body cameras, which might have recorded crucial evidence, had been ordered by Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson, but had only recently arrived and had not yet been deployed.

Just playing devil’s advocate here. It is pretty much undisputed that Brown assaulted the officer but won’t the Brown camp claim that the cop executed him in retaliation for the physical assault? It seems to me that it is more important to prove whether or not Brown was advancing.

Finally a credible witness comes forward (glad it was Big Mike’s friend but it WILL cost him. “Snitches get stiches”)

But then, Big Mike, “Meanest Dog In The Junk Yard” Brown is still dead, the officer was/is justified in the shooting and the three autopsies are done with, Big Mike is in the ground and the blacks still won’t accept the fact that is and was a good shooting. Too bad it took so long for the “no-mind” Street Rats and media whores to realize there was trauma to the officer and WHY he was justified in pulling the trigger.

Prayers go out for the officer and hope his life will be “OK” in the future. My suggestion to him would be, “move the hell out of Missouri”.

The police released photos of George Zimmerman’s battered, bloody head, and it didn’t even make the news.

If the chief had asked the DA to charge the officer as soon as things brewed up it may have prevented a bunch of rioting. Any real jury would have acquitted the officer.

The problem with this rout would be the jury. It would be a OJ in reverse jury. Or a real jury finding the officer not guilty would have started Rodney King riots.

But as the Zimmerman trial showed, the law is still the law...until it isn't.

And then all hell breaks loose.

After the O.J. trial, there was a major awakening among non-hoodies. We saw what the feral world was like.

With Zimmerman, we saw it underscored.

If this innocent Officer goes down because of stopping this deadly giant feral...there will be a tectonic shift in this country.

This is not what Sharpton, Obama, Jackson, Holder have anticipated.

They will be shocked at how this event will solidify their enemy.

The real race war Obama wants will have begun.

But it won't be between the races...it will be a war between the cultures.

Conservatives have no animosity toward Black men and women. They have animosity toward ferals (whatever their race) and those who encourage them.

I agree that the Grand Jury will vote that crime had been committed and that the DA presented sufficient evidence that Officer Wilson should stand trial.

Remember that the DA in most states is not required to present exculpatory evidence at this point, doesn’t have to present all the evidence he has at this time.

The joker in the deck is that the GJ can directly question the witnesses, none of whom have access to legal representation at this stage. And those questions some times kick the DA in the nuts. Not often but sometimes.

So the DA has a bit of a dilemma IIRC at this point, to call or not call Officer Wilson. He also would not have the advice of his counsel at this time.

While the GJ proceedings are supposed to be secret, I’d bet the odds that before courthouse is emptied for the night some media will have received a selected leak and will run with it.

The Fergusons keep saying that they’re going to make a presentation to a grand jury, possibly today ( Wed.) But there’s been no press at all of a jury being screened/selected and many communities run standing GJ’s for every 30 days or so. In my community about 300 people are called to pick a GJ from so it would always get to be pretty public. That would mean that any standing jury would already have been seated prior to the Brownyfest. In my view it would be absolutely improper to bring anything to a GJ until the toxicology results are available. Shooting a nutcase stoner is a whole different animal that shooting a teetotaling college-bound Valedicktorian.
