The story surrounding the death of Michael Brown’s death has been at the center of much controversy. As more and more time exists between the present and when Brown was killed, it seems that more and more evidence comes out refuting the narrative originally given.
Now, as the autopsy report has been released to the public, it seems that Brown wasn’t shot in the back twice as explained by his friend, Dorian Johnson.
According to Johnson, he and Brown were walking home when he was approached by the officer. As the struggle ensued, Brown turned to run where the officer, who has since been identified as Officer Darren Wilson, shot him in the back twice.
Upon Brown swiveling around in surrender with his hands raise in the air, the officer proceeded to pump another 7-or-so rounds into Brown until he was dead. Unfortunately for Johnson, unlike himself, the facts don’t lie.
The autopsy report, conducted by an unbiased, third-party medical examiner, showed that all bullets striking Brown, had entered from the front. Although this doesn’t prove that he was charging officers, which is starting to seem like the more reasonable explanation given the facts recently exposed, it entirely disproves Johnson’s account.
“Dr. Michael Baden, New York City’s former chief medical examiner, told The New York Times the final bullet to hit 18-year-old Michael Brown struck him in the top of the head indicating his head was bent forward at the time,” according to the Bizpac Review. Furthermore, Baden explains, “It can be because he’s giving up, or because he’s charging forward at the officer.”
Although this is yet to be distinguished, we now know, far after the fact, that Brown had just robbed a store minutes before his death. Along with this, actual eye witness testimony given that day, as heard in the background of a video documenting Mike Brown’s body lying dead in the street, the “gentle giant” was actually charging the officer before being shot.
Officials are also currently awaiting the results of a toxicology report that will indicate whether or not Brown was under the influence of anything at the time of his death.
