The Final Moments Of Michael Brown’s Life Look Very Different, Depending Whom You Talk To

There was a lot of information released in that “data dump” and it took time to go through it. Thanks for the breakdown.

Final Moments Witness

They may have had some conflicting accounts but I’m counting…
Did Brown charge Wilson? 10 NO
Did Brown charge Wilson? 5 Yes

Were Brown’s hands up? 9 YES
Were Brown’s hands up? 2 No’s

According to my calculations
Did Brown charge Wilson? 5 more said NO
Were Brown’s hands up? 7 more said YES

In his final moments of life, Michael Brown charged toward Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, shrugging off warnings to stop and seeming to ignore at least one bullet that wounded him, while reaching to his waistband as if to pull a weapon.
.
Or, he sank to his knees, raised his hands and shouted, “please don’t shoot me.”

Wilson shot and killed Brown on a suburban Missouri street on a Saturday afternoon. Nearly two dozen people said they saw the events unfold. Yet when asked to describe the last, crucial seconds before…

    Crime Scene Medical Examiner Took No Measurements, Photos of Brown

    Before the grand jury made the decision not to indict Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson for shooting and killing African-American teenager Michael Brown, they heard testimony from around 60 witnesses, including Wilson. Of those 60, three were medical examiners; many of the details known about the moments after Brown’s death came from the only examiner that witnessed the crime scene. That medical examiner, who was not named, arrived at the scene after the detective, and strangely, did not take any photographs.

    The detective, whose name was also redacted, testified before the grand jury. He was asked, “So when you arrived [at the crime scene,] the medical examiner had not been notified?” The detective explained, “To my knowledge, no. Sergeant [redacted] informed me that they had not been.… My main concern was making sure the medical examiner was dispatched.… If the suspect is deceased, then the next step would be to contact the medical examiner.” It’s unclear from the testimony why the sergeant did not contact the medical examiner himself.

    On CNN ( I can’t find it at this moment) but it quoted someone from the medical examiners office as saying they knew what happened so not taking measurements were no big deal.

    So basically these people assumed that because Brown’s black body was lying in a pool of blood and a white cop had shot him that Brown got what he deserved?

    Basically they stacked the deck in favor of Wilson by not doing their jobs.

      Where did we see this before? Oh right! In Zimmerman’s trial. The crime scene folks checked for blood on the sidewalk with a flashlight to see if Zimmerman was telling the truth about having his head bashed on the concrete. However, it was raining so O’Mara took opportunity to ask if they used luminol. They didn’t. They didn’t bag Trayvon’s hands to preserve DNA and finding none to support that he hit Zimmerman, not bagging his hands were used against them.

      The evidence of no evidence to support the story of the accused, is used to support the story of the accused. It goes beyond facts to speculation, but accomplishes the result they want knowing there’s not a damn thing anyone can do about it.

    Excerpt from above link as to why Wilson chose to draw his gun. (Pay attention to his excuse for not using his baton.):

    Wilson described considering different weapons to use. He decided against grabbing mace because he would’ve had to move his left hand, which was blocking his face from Brown’s punches at that moment.

    He also considered using his baton, “but to get that out since I kind of sit on it, I usually have to lean forward and pull myself forward to the steering wheel to get it out. Again, I wasn’t willing to let go of the one defense I had against being hit.”

    Wilson also considered using his flashlight, but it was on the passenger side of his car, out of easy reach. Wilson then drew his gun.

    In the photo below, if the wooden stick in the bag on his cruiser’s front passenger seat IS his baton, then Wilson was NOT sitting on his baton.

    (This is photo #78 of 83 of the crime scene photos.)

    • Just so you know, there is another type of baton that police use….it is a telescopic type of wand (spring loaded). These types of batons are typically kept on their utility belt. Also you don’t typically see a wooden baton…..even the non-telescopic ones are black and made of a heavy material that won’t break…..wood could break.

      When I enlarge it I can clearly see the whole in the stick that the leather “handle” cord goes through. And it is wooden……Definitely a baton.

      Looks like it even has “whacking” marks from past use.

    I have not had time to read the testimony but did McCullough say in his presser that the second casing from one of the two shots in the car was never located? Thanks.

  8. Xena, Thank you for the re-post…

    Wilson said he shot Brown after a “fight for survival” because he feared for his life by claiming Brown twice punched him in the face as he sat in his patrol car, making him afraid Brown would beat him unconscious.

    “The way I’ve described it is, “I felt like a five-year-old holding Hulk Hogan. That’s just how big he felt and how small I felt just from grasping his arm. He had the most intense aggressive face. The only way I can describe it, it looks like a demon, that’s how angry he looked.”

    Wilson claims when Brown began punching him, he went through a mental checklist and concluded “Taking out my gun was my only viable option. The next thing was, how do I survive? I didn’t know if I’d be able to withstand another hit like that.”

    Wilson is a typical scared as shit bully whose life started out making him feel like a zero, like a nobody. When bullies feel they can intimidate, threaten or hurt someone, they feel like somebody. The key is the feeling of power.

    When people feel they have no control over the way their pain is delivered they live in fear, not knowing when they’re going to be hurt. Kids who are constantly bullied, and not protected will develop symptoms of PTSD — constant anxiety, constant fear, idiosyncratic behaviors to compensate for those feelings. They’ll fall behind in their development.

      Funny thing, isn’t it, that America’s “Founders” relied on English law when writing the constitution, and yet England outlawed slavery while America was still holding slave auctions; England outlawed guns, and the death penalty. Maybe England, like other countries, learned from past mistakes and advanced, while the U.S. refuses to catch-up.
