The facts be damned …
Once again the progressive socialist democrats, communist agitators, and race-baiters and race-hustlers are confronted with factual evidence that police officer Darren Wilson struggled with a 6’4” – 292-pound belligerent Michael Brown who was apparently wrestling with the officer and was shot in the process. According to published reports, Brown’s blood was found on the gun and inside of the car where the struggle for the officer’s gun took place.
Media reports continue to characterize Brown as being unarmed – even though his size and demeanor on that fateful day could mean that his body could be considered as much a lethal weapon as a trained martial artist. Additionally, the struggle for the officer’s gun could signify an intent for Brown to arm himself and do great bodily harm or even kill the officer Wilson.
But the facts do not seem to matter to the crowd of agitators who have invested a great deal of time, effort, and money in staging a self-serving racial incident. They will concede that the evidence appears to show that Brown was attacking the officer in the car … but, then they attempt to nullify the evidence by asking why the officer followed a retreating Brown out of the car and then shot him as he was attempting to surrender. The fact that all shots that struck Brown were fired from the front and indicating that Brown was not retreating seem irrelevant to their argument. The fact that the shot placement indicated that Brown did not have his hands in the air, palms forward – the classic surrender position – doesn’t seem to matter.
There are some that demand that the officer be tried in a court for all of the information to come out … disregarding the officer’s right to due process that would allow that evidence demonstrates that there is no probable cause for a trial.
How the media is playing the story …
New Information Released on Michael Brown Case
A report by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch this morning shows the official autopsy supports Ferguson officer Darren Wilson’s claim that Michael Brown struggled with him in his patrol vehicle, and that Brown did not have his hands up when he was shot Aug. 9.
St. Louis medical examiner Dr. Michael Graham says the report supports claims that there was a “significant struggle” in Wilson’s patrol car, and Brown suffered a hand wound at “relatively short range.”
A forensic pathologist from San Francisco, Dr. Judy Melinek, says based on a bullet wound to Brown’s arm, Brown’s palms could not have been facing Wilson in the standard surrender position – with hands up and palms out – when he was shot, and Brown was falling forward or lunging when he was hit by the fatal shot to the top of his head.
Based on toxicology tests, Ohio State University College of Pharmacy consultant Alfred Staubus concludes Brown had used marijuana within a few hours of his death, but it is not clear if he was impaired at the time.
The Post-Dispatch says Brown’s family attorney calls Wilson’s account “absurd from beginning to end.”
Note the apparent continuing efforts of the Brown’s Family attorney to keep the case alive and boiling, perhaps in the hopes of a multi-million dollar “nuisance” settlement or simply to keep pumping up the attorney’s media presence and seeding the nation for more high profile cases?
Who is going to compensate the police officer?
Even if the police officer is exonerated of charges relating to the use of “excessive force” in the death of the strong-arm thug Michael Brown, who is going to repair the damage to the officer’s life and career. Who is going to remove the target on his back from some gangsta’ wannabe that wants to make a name for themselves.
Like George Zimmerman who shot the thuggish Trayvon Martin, the progressive mainstream media and race hustlers like Al Sharpton have turned a decent man into an object of scorn, ridicule, and have created permanent safety concerns for the officer and his family. Lest we forget, it was Al Sharpton and the progressive media that went after a decent, Neighborhood Watch captain performing a community service all because they believed that Zimmerman was “White” and this was another black teenager dying at the hands of the “white” devil. Sharpton who has a demonstrable record of race-baiting and community agitating has never been held fully accountable for his actions – mainly because the progressive socialist democrats regard him as their “go to” guy when it comes to rallying their black base of “victims.”
Bottom line …
No matter what the evidence that has been leaked or presented, the progressive socialist democrats, communists, agitators, and race-hustlers need a Ferguson race riot – justice be damned – to mobilize the black voter base for the midterm elections that pose an existential threat to democrats who would desperately like to keep their Senate majority.
No matter how innocent the police officer, nor how guilty the perpetrator – political forces have taken over and will pursue this issue for their own self-serving purposes.
