To begin with, I don’t know exactly what led to the shooting of Michael Brown. I don’t think anyone else here does either. Nor does the main
stream media, the coroner, the DA, etc. The only person who really knows is Darren Wilson. And considering Wilson’s on the hot seat, it’s
anyone’s guess as to whether or not he’s telling the truth. Obviously, he’s going to say whatever it takes to justify his actions that day.
I’ve read nothing from the coroner’s report or media reports that shed any light on the matter.
The fact that Brown had a gunshot wound to his wrist in no way confirm’s he was reaching for the officer’s gun when it happened. Any number of
scenarios could account for that wound. How do we know, for instance, that the officer hadn’t pulled his gun on Brown while in the car, and that
Brown was struggling to keep from being shot when the gun went off? To me, that scenario makes more sense than the one where Brown is attempting to
take the gun away from Wilson. All we’re really confident of is that there was some sort of altercation at the squad car.
It’s the rest of the shots that I question most. After the altercation at the car, it’s quite likely Brown ran from it; otherwise why would his
body end up so far away from it? So then, Wilson gets out of the vehicle and starts firing; I think about 10 rounds, 6 of which hit Brown. It’s the
killing shot that I find most telling. It entered the top of Brown’s head (maybe around the eye socket or a little above) and the trajectory took it
straight down. Considering Brown was 6’4” tall, for the bullet to take that trajectory tells me he was likely either bent over and holding his gut
(as one witness has stated) or he was on his way down when the shot was fired. However, that’s contrary to what Wilson claims, which is that Brown
was charging him when it happened.
I don’t know what happened that day, but I do have suspicions about the Ferguson authority’s handling of it. In my mind, so far it's Wilson's
story that doesn't add up. Something about it smells rotten to me...
PS: I keep reading/hearing people say that eye witness accounts can’t always be trusted. That may be true. But do you also think that cops and
district attorney’s never lie? If so, I’ve got a newsflash for you...
