St. Louis reporter: Police claim more than a dozen witnesses support the cop’s account of the Michael Brown shooting

posted at 11:21 am on August 19, 2014 by Allahpundit

A story is coming at the Post-Dispatch, I assume, but for now this is all we have.

The only public interview I’ve seen with someone who supports Darren Wilson’s version of the shooting was Dana Loesch’s chat with “Josie,” and Josie wasn’t a witness. She claimed to be relaying Wilson’s own account of what happened. But then, go figure that locals who saw the shooting and think Brown wasn’t as innocent as he’s been portrayed might want to avoid cameras with their neighbors rioting nightly for the past week. One question as we wait for Byers’s story is whether the witnesses who have spoken to cops support Wilson’s story (via Josie) in its entirety or just select details. E.g., maybe they saw Brown mouthing off to Wilson when he told him and Dorian Johnson to get out of the street. Maybe they saw some sort of scuffle through the driver’s window between Brown and Wilson when the latter pulled up alongside. Maybe they saw him run from Wilson, then turn back. Did they see him “bum-rush” Wilson, though? A witness who corroborates Wilson on the first three points but not on the crucial last one isn’t going to help the case for self-defense much.

Meanwhile, a question regarding the protests: Is it true, as protesters have been telling the media, that the most violent actors are out-of-towners who came to Ferguson to stir things up and maybe grab some free stuff in the process? There’s no way to know exact percentages, says WaPo, but yeah, there’s definitely some “looting tourism” happening:

They are known here as “the militants” — a faction inhabiting the hard-core end of a spectrum that includes online organizers and opportunistic looters — and their numbers have been growing with the severity of their tactics since the shooting…

Some of the men are from the area — Ferguson or surrounding towns also defined in part by the gulf separating the mostly white law enforcement agencies from a mistrusting African American public. Many others — it is hard to quantify the percentage — have arrived by bus and by car from Chicago, Detroit, Brooklyn and elsewhere

“We are jobless men, and this is our job now — getting justice,” [one "militant"] said. “If that means violence, that’s okay by me. They’ve been doing this to us for years.”…

Ferguson police officials would not quantify how many looters have been arrested since the Brown shooting but presented a Washington Post reporter with a stack of roughly 50 arrest reports. While some of those arrested for stealing are from Ferguson, a large number have addresses listed in Illinois or in Texas.

It’s not just looters and people enraged over the Brown shooting. Marc Lamont Hill, who was there with CNN last night, blamed left-wing radicals for antagonizing the cops. (There was also a guy carrying an “ISIS Here”(!) banner behind Jake Tapper at one point.) My first instinct reading that was that it’s good news. Eventually the out-of-towners will give up, go home, and the situation will calm down. But what if, as this drags on night after night, it ends up attracting more out-of-towners, more “jobless men” with nothing to lose? Every day raises the odds that someone will fire a gun at the cops from the crowd and then we’ll have a scene much darker than the teargas theater that’s been playing out over the last week. In fact, as the demonstrations get more violent, it may be that the locals will start staying home to keep out of harm’s way, leaving the crowds smaller but nastier, increasingly comprised of those fidgety out-of-towners. What happens then?

Via the Corner, here’s Malik Shabazz of Black Lawyers for Justice telling Tapper he thinks the violent protesters are “plants.” Gosh, I wonder who he thinks planted them.

So, once they release the photo of Wilson’s eye socket injury, and leak other corroborating evidence that will exonerate Wilson, thereby preventing him from being charged with anything, the REAL riots will begin? We won’t even have to wait for November for those riots.

What are the chances holder will go ahead with a civil rights charge against Wilson anyway to placate the rabid mobs? How would law enforcement people react to that? Would they go along with sacrificing one of their own? Interesting times indeed.

erguson is much bigger than Michael Brown. Ferguson represents payback for the city’s black residents who spent hundreds of years in slavery.

You people make jokes about the looters. But those Nikes, the booze and the cigarettes represent Capitalism, aka White Greed, aka Slave Holders. Those proud African-Americans in Ferguson wanted new tire rims and flat screens no more than the patriots “wanted” the tea in Boston.

Frank Lib on August 19, 2014 at 11:58 AM


Who Was The First Slave Owner In America?

Oopsie!

And, ENOUGH, with the specious arguments about ‘It was only property!’

Let’s run a few ‘It’s only property!’ scenarios to demonstrate just how inane such arguments truly are:

1. A white ‘Gentle Giant’ steals Touré’s laptop. On said laptop was his sole copy – because Carbonite and iDrive are corporations, Touré refuses to add to their profit margins – of his doctoral dissertation…on which he laboured for more than 3 years and it was bestseller quality, man, NYT bestseller quality. I’m a tellin’ ya. P.u.l.i.t.z.e.r. P.r.i.z.e, Babee!

Oh well, it’s just private property./ So, so, sorry, Touré.

2. The nice, black family that lives down the block from Jesse Jackson barely keeps their heads above water…forget keeping up with the Joneses Jacksons. Dad earns his living as a plumber. One night, he is bone-assed tired. Instead of lugging in all of his tools and knowing that he has a 6 AM appointment, he locks his truck, finds his dinner in the oven where his long-since retired wife has left it warming, eats, kisses his children, and crawls into bed.

Around 3 in the morning, he is awakened by the loud blaring of his car alarm. By the time he gets to the truck, some tweaking cracka has cleaned him out. However will he work? How will he feed his family? What about the mortgage payment?

Oh well, it’s just private property./

Of course, if the family loses everything, Jesse Jackson won’t care, but I will.


3.
Melissa Harris-Perry has an awesome sister, Merielle Landis-Sherry. She’s a single mum of two kids and has never been on the dole in her entire life. She has a great little business doing nails, hair, weaves, and extensions. She used to do it out of her car, but she got so successful that she opened a sweeeeeeeeeet shoppe in Ferguson, Missouri, where people come as much for the service as they do for the camaraderie. Of course, business is so brisk and word-of-mouth out-of-this-world that reservations are about as hard to get as they are at a Michelin restaurant. Girl got it going on!

But, wouldn’t you know it? One day, somes dat don’t got and don’t wants to gets da hard way like Merielle gots all pea green wid da enveeee, as Mammy (she’s my favourite character) might say, and decided dat Merielle was acting all white ‘n stuff and livin above her station or something. So, they just helped demselves da sum dere wigs, weaves, and dreads. Dey be owed. ‘For Michael…’n slavery…’n whitey…’n capitalism…’n colonialism…’n imperialism…’n racism…’n da 1%, ya know!’


No Hair Weaves, No Peace!

Oh well, it’s just private property./

Of course, if Merielle Landis-Sherry loses everything, I, for one, will very much care.

For those that helped themselves to her private property, jail is too good for them. Karma is a bytch and she has their names engraved in her little book of payback and justice will be meted out as it is deserved: good, bloody and fvcking hard.

“You’ve Killed Our Kind 4 Years But Won’t Sacrifice 1 Cop For Justice & To Save A Community & These Businesses”

But they haven’t. That’s one of the very sad things about this. There have been no prior police shootings in Ferguson.

The rioters are taking out their frustration with the system, propogated by liberal policies which have has led to poverty and family breakdown among blacks, against a town which really doesn’t seem to have had a terrible history of race relations or police brutality.

The worst actual story was something like Wilson once told a black woman to shut the F up or something. And now a bunch of opportunists are rioting, Sharpton and the media are fanning the flames.

The only hard evidence shows that Brown was high, he robbed a store, and he was shot, facing the police, with his hands down and his head in a position consistent with rushing the police officer.

Yet the protesters are still shouting hands up don’t shoot-which was clearly a fiction by Johnson based on the bullet wounds, the Washington Redskins are running on the field with their hands up in “honor” of Brown-guess they didn’t see the autopsy.

The truth has been sacrificed for race baiting opportunism and ratings. And everyone stands by while hundreds of young black men are killed in Chicago, Detroit, DC and New York while they focus on this area that previously was a non-problem. Prior statistics showed 18 murders in 12 years-that’s like one weekend in Chicago.

talkingpoints on August 19, 2014 at 12:36 PM

Might explain the officer’s shooting consistently slightly left of center of mass if his vision was compromised in one eye.

novaculus on August 19, 2014 at 11:59 AM

Exactly…and they need to go back to MikeMike’s hands’ xrays, photos and soft tissues to see if there is any injury whatsoever. Bruising is going to be hard to see on a black man’s hand but you can see subcutaneous hemorrhage on close inspection or hairline fractures on xray. If they didn’t do them get his body back and do it now!

libfreeordie on August 19, 2014 at 6:14 AM

Most likely, if they do have statements from witnesses, they don’t want to release the statements out of fear for the witnesses’ safety.

And don’t claim that is not a reasonable fear considering the riots, etc.

And, those kinds of documents (witness statements) are not typically released by police departments.

I’m not saying the story is true about witnesses supporting the officer’s version of events – I’ll wait to see – but the fact these statements haven’t been released is not dispositive of anything.

As we on the right have been saying all along – how about we let an investigation happen before we come to conclusions (and riot or form lynch mobs)?

the problem we face is that there are never any consequences for the media/leftists who get everything so wrong (often on purpose).

For instance, Mary Mapes (of the Dan Rather National Guard fake story), instead of slinking away into obscurity as she should, is having a movie made of her fake version of events.

So, instead of being ashamed at the dishonest and/or incompetence, they simply refuse to acknowledge it and continue pushing the big lie.

Justice? Stealing from store owners in a faraway city who have done nothing against them?

The protests in Ferguson should not stop until that cop is charged with murder and jailed.

White supremacist police officer punched himself in the eye to support the white racist power structure.

vlad martel on August 19, 2014 at 1:10 PM

If it is true there are significant numbers of out-of-town “jobless men” in Ferguson, then this points pretty conclusively to some shadowy somebody bankrolling these protests.

Its just not very believable that someone on the public dole has enough savings to spend on a week or two of cheap motel rooms and restaurant meals, no matter how much they crave justice and some spinner rims.

1. Substantiate, by documentation, that the Ferguson PD has a long history of abuse.
2. What lie about the robbery report? The Chief himself said Wilson was unaware of the robbery report.
3. How is the release of the robbery video a “smear”? Brown’s accomplice acknowledges the incident.
4. Since when is eighteen a “boy”, especially one with a documented propensity for violence?

I wasn’t around, but did blacks riot when Weather Underground member, Kathy Boudin, MURDER IN COLD BLOOD Nyack, New York, Police Officer Waverly Brown, an African-American father of three, small children?

She also murdered Sergeant Edward J. O’Grady, Jr, a decorated Vietnam Veteran, husband, and father of three children. She also murdered Brinks Security Guard Peter Paige, a dedicated husband, father, and decorated veteran of the Navy. Of course, they were both white, so no biggee. They were just ‘sacrifices for justice and peace’ or something!

But, back to Waverly ‘Chipper’ Brown. Did blacks stage protests when ‘Dr Kathy Boudin’ got out of prison early and received a 6-figure teaching position at New York University School of Law — something that none of Brown’s children will never, ever attain — all because she was a radical cop-killer?

Apparently Hamas-supporting white-hating thugs like to stick together. Cause one could be forgiven for thinking that the Ferguson protesters have a solid majority of America on their side, given the media coverage.

Give them what they want. Make Ferguson a police-free zone and in two years it will look like Hiroshima 1n 1945. Then the Blame-Everybody-Else-Except-Those-Responsible liberals may finally discover who is responsible for destroying black neighborhoods.

MaiDee on August 19, 2014 at 1:23 PM

Holder has not obeyed the law the courts, and the Constitution since he took office so why should he uphold justice now. He has constantly stated that everyone is racist (except himself). There is no doubt that he will charge Wilson to appease the Ferguson crowd and party faithful. They aren’t looking for the truth, they are looking for a scapegoat.

leader4hru on August 19, 2014 at 1:24 PM

So, once again, this is a rush to judgement.

Drudge has xrays.

Michael Brown smashed Darren Wilson’s face. He has a broken eye socket.

How did that happen? Did Wilson smash his own face? Hardly.

I feel sorry now for the calm, good people of Ferguson that have had to suffer being used by the DNC to try to drum up enthusiasm for the November election.

Because that is what this is.

Those x-rays make this case over. The cop told the truth. The witnesses at most saw the last few minutes of a much longer confrontation, therefore they saw nothing.

Or they lied.

And the corrupt media is trying to help Democrats in the fall.

That is the whole story.

There was, however, quite a vicious black-on-white crime committed in Ferguson in 2013-and in August, to be exact.

Suspects hit hot dog vendor with hammer at local Home Depot

KMOV.com

Posted on August 22, 2013 at 12:19 PM

(KMOV) – Police are hoping surveillance video will help catch four suspects after a hot dog vender was robbed and attacked with a stolen hammer at a Ferguson Home Depot on Wednesday.

Authorities said the hot dog vendor was standing at the front entrance of the Home Depot in the 10900 block of New Halls Ferry Rd. around 3 p.m. when four shoplifters walked by and swiped his cell phone.

Police said the vendor chased them out of the store, but was struck in the head with a hammer one of the suspects had stolen. The suspects then got in a car and drove away.

The bloodied victim was transported to the hospital with serious injuries.

Authorities were looking at surveillance video to help identify the suspects.

There are several surveillance cam photos of the “gentle giants” at the link. Wonder if they ever caught the dudes?

x-rays on Gateway Pundit of the officer’s eye socket broken? No wonder Holder is rushing to MO to scrape together whatever anti-white claptrap vitriol he can possibly salvage from the unfortunate situation to keep the base “ginned up” until November. Pathetic race baiter.

DebraChicago on August 19, 2014 at 1:35 PM

Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.” This comes from a source within the District Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis County Police.

So Brown kicks the cops ass…..he runs off and the cop shoots at him and misses…..

The cops aim is not good because he is probably blinded in one eye.

Brown is now really pissed and rushes back towards the cop.

The cop hits him 4 times and Brown is still rushing towards him…..

The cops 5th shot causes Brown to stumble and as he is falling
the cop gets off the 6th and final shot that hits him in the head as he is falling.

That depends on if a District Attorney first decided to charge me, and if a jury of my peers decided to convict me. Both, of course, after deciding that I was not reasonable in fearing for my life. THAT is due process, Earl. Cops even getting shooting boards, which is an additional step in the whole process before criminal charges are filed. And the Ferguson PD can’t hold a shooting board while all of their officers are otherwise occupied.

gryphon202 on August 19, 2014 at 1:48 PM

With the HIPA laws, I imagine it took a while for the officers injuries to be made public.
I hope they put a picture up of the cops facial injuries. It must look painful. It also emphasis the fact that is 6’4 300 pound “teenager” was a deadly threat to the officer.

With two crucial differences. The assailant here was nowhere near the size of Brown and backup arrived very quickly.

Rocks on August 19, 2014 at 12:52 PM

Backup arrived within three minutes according to Ferguson police. SOP was Wilson should have remained in his car until they arrived. Instead he got out and shot Brown dead.

ezspirit on August 19, 2014 at 1:51 PM

Considering you have no idea his motivation for doing so, it’s not safe to assume that Wilson is a murderer. Even if a shooting board finds that he didn’t follow departmental policy, it doesn’t automatically follow that he is guilty of murder.
