Darren Wilson Testimony - news.com.au



The officer said he was sitting in his patrol car when he drew his firearm after Brown slugged him twice in the face through an open window. They proceeded to struggle over the weapon and Wilson — who is 6 feet 4 — said he was overmatched.
(snip)
“At that point, I thought I was getting shot,” Wilson said. “I distinctly remember envisioning a bullet going into my leg. I thought that was the next step.”
Two shots were fired from inside the vehicle following the struggle, and Brown ran off. After radioing for help, Wilson took off after Brown and his accomplice.
“My main goal was to keep eyes on him and keep him contained until I had people coming there,” Wilson testified.
But then Brown charged at him and the officer fired repeatedly, he said — describing how he fired the fatal shot to Brown’s head as Brown continued to charge him.



What I don't understand is why didn't Wilson just drive off? Then radio for backup?

Or, why the heck did he go back after Brown and accomplice after shooting Brown initially? Should he have not waited for his backup to arrive??

Edit to add: Surely he could have kept "eyes" on him from a safer distance in his patrol car! Oy oy oy!

No it's not. The evidence and the testimony doesn't indicate that, at all.

The only claims to that effect have come from untrustworthy eyewitnesses.

It doesnt take much to take someone, give them a really basic skillset in fighting and self defense to drastically seperate them from the average untrained teenager.

Trust me i teach people how to fight for a living.

What I don't understand is why didn't Wilson just drive off? Because his job was to arrest the criminal who just assaulted him. Then radio for backup? Backup was already en route due to his earlier call.

Or, why the heck did he go back after Brown and accomplice after shooting Brown initially? See above Should he have not waited for his backup to arrive?? And let them get away? No.

Cops don't run from their duty....period. Can you imagine? This POS thug is causing problems, just committed a robbery, and is grabbing at the cop. A decent cop worth anything will not run like a little girl from people like this. Sheesh!

Wait, so a police officer doing his job and responding to a situation is suddenly a racist murderer?


Of course he is. Just like a Christian who refuses to bake a cake for a gay wedding because he doesn't want to sin really just hates gay people.

I guess it just depends on which political activist you're speaking to.

Where was that chapter and verse about "thou shalt not bake for gay people" in the Bible, again?

I can never remember where that is.

As tragic as this incident certainly is, I'm still unclear why an officer who had never previously fired a shot in the line of duty would suddenly decide to shoot a black chap for no reason.

I think it's obvious that Mike Brown should be alive today, but something spooked the cop. A horrific misunderstanding of intentions between the two men, I imagine.

I see no reason at all to believe the cop was spooked because of racism though.


A large-framed man punching you inside your vehicle and then reaching for your gun is quite spooky, indeed.

I don't think there was a bit of misunderstanding. Michael Brown was prepared to show this cop how tough he was by beating him and taking his gun... the officer understood his intentions perfectly and responded appropriately.

He still had his gun after shooting him before the head shot. I doubt Brown would of been in a state to kill anyone at that point. As in the public that is.

If you go after a raging bull after attacking it, of course you're in with a chance at being gored!

He could easily have just waited until backup arrived, from a safer distance. Wilson, wilfully went back after him, putting his own life in danger.

I hear you, but he already shot Brown before Brown ran off. Wilson just went back for more!

You're in favor of further empowering jack-booted government shock troops?

There's more than one level of government.

So spooky that it makes you chase after him even though both of you are wounded and help is on the way.

If Wilson was so overwhelmed with the size of Brown, and having been found so off guard by Brown, why in the world would he chase after Brown?

Common sense and good judgement are not widely practiced any longer with in law enforcement.

The now defunct Jennings police department along with the Ferguson Police Department are very well known for their flagrant racism, Wislon was employed by both.

I didn't say that. But, I know what and who they deal with everyday....the dregs of society. We have had half a century to clean up the inner cities and have poured billions upon billions of dollars into programs, and what do we have? It's worse than it has ever been. And our law enforcement officers have to deal with the disrespect and lack of decency day in and day out and put up with all manner of abuse. I know this for an absolute fact.

It's very simple: Wilson pursued Brown in order to keep eyes on him until back up arrived so he could arrest him.

Brown decided that getting shot once wasn't enough and he wasn't done showing everyone how tough he was so he charged the officer and he was stopped. He could have just as easily stopped, gotten on the ground, and been arrested instead of choosing to fight the police. It's amazing to me that everyone wants to find fault in Darren Wilson's actions but nobody has pointed out the monumental stupidity of Michael Brown.

What we have here is a case of an individual (Michael Brown) who thought he was tough enough to take on a police officer. He could have faced a misdemeanor charge of shoplifting but, instead, chose the "F* the Police" route and decided to assault a cop. The cop shot him once, which should have been enough to end the fight, but Brown decided that he would rather keep trying his luck. When most people get shot, they stop fighting. It takes a special type of rage to keep fighting after being shot multiple times. Michael Brown was a dangerous man.

So now you are claiming what the prosecuter said was untrustworthy. At least we agree on something now. Are you saying that brown just stood there as 6 rounds were coming at him at first? No he did not he took off running and wilson caught up to him then killed him as he was getting on his knees other wise the last shot trajectory does not match because it entered at a downward angle into a man nearly a foot taller than the officer.

That's a little further off topic than I dare to venture. I don't like having my posts removed.

Wilson has nothing to be ashamed of.
