As soon as Michael Brown Jr. was fatally shot by a white St. Louis police officer, the community of Ferguson, Missouri became engulfed in a firestorm of outrage over the incident. Immediately, the officer who shot Brown was crucified by the leftwing media and the black community alike. Darren Wilson, by all accounts a fair and decorated police officer, was branded a violent racist with reckless abandon for the law and a penchant for abusing his power. As more witnesses to the Brown shooting surface, we are seeing that nothing could be further from the truth.
In a smoking gun which Western Journalism says “could settle the case once and for all,” new witnesses have claimed that the shooting of Michael Brown was justified, because he lunged at Officer Wilson in a deliberate attack on his person. Even though Brown was unarmed, under Missouri state law, this act of intentional violence was enough to warrant the shooting.
According to a woman who would only identify herself as “Josie”, when Wilson tried to get out of his cruiser, Brown first tried to push the officer back into the car, then punched him in the face and grabbed for his gun before breaking free. The gun went off once during the struggle. New reports corroborate the fact that Wilson was in fact punched in the face, as he suffered injuries.
Josie went on to say that Wilson pursued Brown and his friend, Dorian Johnson, ordering them to freeze. When they turned around, Brown began taunting Wilson, saying he would not arrest them, then ran at the officer at full speed. Johnson has repeatedly lied about exactly what happened leading up to his friend’s death.
As you listen to the audio of Josie relaying what Wilson’s significant other told her about the shooting, you will probably notice that it sounds as though Michael Brown was on drugs at the time he violently bum rushed the officer. There seems to be no other explanation for his erratic behavior. Recent reports suggest that he could have been high on marijuana at the time of his death.
Who do you think is telling the truth here? Josie did give the same story as Darren Wilson gave to investigators, which was corroborated by Brown’s autopsy. Tell us your opinion in the comments section.
