A video that was posted on Thursday offers new evidence in the Michael Brown shooting, and it may vindicate Darren Wilson. The video begins just after Brown was shot, and the teen’s body can be seen in the street throughout the footage.
Listen carefully at the 6:30 mark to what the bystanders are saying. Judging from the transcript, they appear to be saying that Michael Brown attacked Officer Wilson.
#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
#2 But him and the police was both in the truck, then he ran – the police got out and ran after him
#2 Then the next thing I know he doubled back toward him cus (sic) – 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
#2 Police fired shots – the next thing I know – the police was missing
#1 The Police?
#2 The Police shot him
#2 The next thing I know … I’m thinking … the dude started running … (garbled something about “he took it from him”)
According to The Blaze, this is also what a friend of Darren Wilson said happened. The friend called into a radio show on Friday and claimed that Wilson had acted in self defense.
“[Brown] just started bum rushing [Wilson],” the caller said. “He just started coming at him full speed. And, so [Wilson] just started shooting.”
