Preliminary Report: Over A Dozen
Witnesses Back Darren Wilson’s Story

Daily Caller, by Chuck Ross

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 8/19/2014 5:38:22 AM

According to a preliminary report from a St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter, police say that more than a dozen witnesses back Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson’s version of the events that led to the fatal shooting of Michael Brown. Post-Dispatch reporter Christine Byers sent a tweet late Monday teasing her findings.(Snip for tweet)Wilson’s claims match a woman who called herself “Josie” who called into Dana Loesch’s radio show on Friday. CNN confirmed with police officials that Josie’s and Wilson’s versions match. According to Josie, Wilson, a six-year police veteran, claims Brown assaulted and then “bum rushed” him during their encounter on

How tall was Wilson? How could he have shot into the top of Brown´s head (he´s 6´4") unless he was firing from a high position or Brown was bucking his head toward Wilson? Just asking...

The last one was the head shot that took him down. I learned one thing in Vietnam and that was to get on the ground at the first one.

As far as I know, most police departments are still using the 9mm Parabellum caliber in their pistols. It is barely effective as a defensive caliber and was adopted in the 80´s because it was stylish, and because it held over a dozen bullets. It replaced the far more effective .357 that held only six shots.
With the 9mm, shot placement is vital. You must hit a vital area or the criminal will not stop.

Years ago, a local cop got into a beating with a tug in a housing complex. The cop was losing. It took 4 shots, point blank with the 9mm to get him to stop. Departments should switch to 40 cal.

1) How could he have shot him in the top of his head? You apparently never played football and had to stop a fullback heading toward you.

2) Why did it take six shots? Because the first five didn´t take him down. You keep shooting until the bum-rusher drops.

And speaking of bum-rushers, Wilson should have saved a few bullets for CNN.

If would be interesting to see if police investigation found the bullet that was fired in the police car. Also, did forensic check Brown´s hands for powder residue?

Brown was charging Wilson, starting at 35 feet and running full speed. He was shot multiple times in the right limb, but with head down was shot above the right eyebrow and the bullet exited his jar and hit the collarbone. The last shot was probably fired from a distance of five or six feet and Brown
skidded to within 3 feet of Wilson as noted by the abrasions on Brown´s face.

In the family press conference their lawyers disregarded what Biden said about the autopsy. One said the autopsy proved he was shot in the back of the head and it came out his eye and the arm wounds proved his hands were up and was surrendering when shot in the arm

What a crock! They are trying to get the officer arrested(second base) in order to go to(third base)a civil lawsuit against Wilson and Ferguson PD.

Now Holder is coming down to make sure the officer gets arrested to help the cause.

The media should be thrown the HELL out of Ferguson they are the problem by agitating the rioters. The journalists are now making this story their own especially CNN & MSNBC. The media ridicules the Police, i´m
sure if this was happening in Andrea Mitchell´s neighborhood she would want the Police present. The Media is proving to be the disappointment we always thought they were, and now they are also counting down when the next scud missile is going to hit Israel & Humas. As you can see the media can´t walk and chew gum at the same time! How about news about jobs {real job number}, the economy, the invasion through our borders {Where ISIS will be walking through soon} and where are the illegal aliens who invaded our country? Also the media fell for the story Obama gave in his speech yesterday as to why he flew to Washington DC in the middle of his golfing vacation. The reason was none like he claimed in his speech, the real reason he met with big businesses to have them back him when he signs his illegal unconstitutional fiat for amnesty. These big businesses will be his next backdrop in the Rose Garden. If the media only knew how foolish they look and act!

One thing to remember is the facts don´t matter in this case to the msm, holder, obama the black community or Democrats. What they want is a continued state of turmoil or rioting until they get what they want. What they want is a conviction of Wilson and more reparations in the form of Government freebies. CRT teaches that all our laws were written by white men so they are racist and don´t apply to blacks. In my opinion the black community has no problem, actually encourages it, with a confrontational attitude when it comes to police especially white cops. The meme will be you don´t murder someone for a stolen cigar. If as #3 stated the "gentle giant" had gotten on the ground after the first shot then there would be no story.

It is however sounding more and more like Darren Wilson will be cleared on the shooting, though I am sure Holder and his social justice league will find something to charge him with.

#13, as I recall, Holder wanted to hit George Zimmerman with federal charges and was keeping that option open. After all the facts came out in court and GZ was acquitted, it became pretty obvious that Holder had no case. If there is any justice left in this country, the same will happen with Darren Wilson.

1st shots were non-lethal to the right side of Brown´s body. When those did not warn him off or stop him, then came the deadly serious shots.

Never let a crisis go to waste and if there is not a crisis, create one. The media had it sound like Brown was Little Red Riding Hood going to see grandma. Just like Trayvon was just going to get little brother candy. Both were involved with drugs and not thinking. Now we have the revenge artists ramping up. What is so sick is the media allowing the thugs to get in the camera and use their phones to tell their friends that they are on tv and it has become a circus. This is not what MLK had in mind for justice. He would be ashamed of this kind of despicable behavior by thugs, just thugs with pants down and shirts over their heads acting like jackasses.

#12, as a former LEO and spouse of a LEO, we have raised our two sons to believe that they can be anything they want to be, except a police officer.

The changes in attitude towards law enforcement over the past 30 years have been remarkable. It is currently the only job in the world where you put your life on the line every single day and are universally hated, especially in the inner cities and especially if you are white. If you act to defend yourself, you risk being railroaded to prison to please the screaming masses you spend your life trying to defend.

It´s not worth it anymore. Back in the day, you were respected. Now you are laughed at, harassed and persecuted.

The media likes to emphasize the "35 feet" as an indication of how far away Brown was. Heck, 35 feet is under ten yards--a standard training distance for self-defense shooting.

Oh, by the way, with regard to 9mm ammunition: the game has changed. The newer 9mm ammunition does a very decent job, not quite as good as .45acp, but still very good. Besides a duty gun loaded with 9mm holds twice as many rounds as one loaded with .45acp, yet with much less felt recoil.

This is not your father´s 9mm.

I´m sure these witnesses are receiving threats in addition to the officer and his family.
Don´t be bothering angry rioters with truth!

I do think the prosecutors need to rethink the importance of keeping their facts protected when the facts serve no purpose in a future conviction and a community is falling apart.

Agree with above posters about the effectiveness if the 9mm. You can help it some with hot rounds, but a .45 it ain´t.

#14 has good point about the middle of the street in broad daylight aspect of shooting down an unarmed young man in front of witnesses. --- not likely!

Two other points (1) Did it seem strange to anyone that minutes before the shooting Brown without any attempt to disguise his identity brazenly strong arms a store owner ? He´s done this before. He lives in this neighborhood and my guess is he´s a known thug. (2) He is clearly wearing a St. Louis Cardinal cap that is shown in the store video an one shot in the street. Unless the cap came off during the melee, that would explain the lack of powder residue on the head. In other words, final shot could have been much closer during the "bum rush".

This event is a kind of Rorshach Test for Lefties. Ask them to assume that a 6´4" 290 lb. man first jumps a cop in his car, tries to get his gun, smashes him in the face before running a short distance, then commanded to stop by the cop with pistol in hand, turns and runs toward the cop. Assuming those as fact, should the cop defend himself by firing or stand and take his chances?

I´ll bet most confirmed Lefties will side with taking a beating because the huge attacker "is unarmed" even though the guys arms are small trees.

If a suspect is running uprite you shoot for the pelvises,it stops a rush every time. If the head is down shoot the top of the head. The policeman made the correct shot .

#19 is correct about new ammo making the 9mm a better choice for defense. However the various departments make choices of what types of ammo an officer can use in his or her firearm. I will keep my .45 ACP with improved ammo as feel shooting twice is just silly.

The Obama clan has ordered millions of rounds of .40 hollow points to use against civilians by all departments.
We know that full jacketed are the conventional target practice and hollow point for destructive human stopping.
Police departments would be wise to go .40 hollow point and double tap to center mass for stopping power.

All of the Doubting Thomas´s should do a test: Have a 18 yr. old teen walk 35 feet away from you and yell freeze and then have him bull rush you. Hold an empty pistol and pull the trigger 6 or seven times. Then see how close the teen is to you. As Mark Furman says/said that it took 3 seconds for all of the shots to be fired and then Brown almost fell at the feet of Officer Wilson? The last shot probable hit Brown while he was falling forward, thusly striking him on the top of his head.
The MSM seems to think Officer Wilson had 5 minutes to casually aim and execute the gentle bull rushing giant? Imho.

Going to the tweet of this story from Drudge´s link, you get to read the replies from an nearly uniform liberal group that simply don´t believe it - it doesn´t fit the troupe they´re selling, doesn´t mesh with their view of what they "know" happened, and so is simply discarded as not real, not fact, not true.

So, once again we see that what the liberal believes, he or she believes no matter what facts are presented, and that anything that contradicts their belief system is tossed aside.
Thus, they cannot be reasoned with - for the facts that fly in the face of their perceptions are ignored.

Thank you, #19. 35 ft isn´t far away at all and only takes a couple or three seconds to cover when running. That´s the amount of time Wilson had to stop Brown before being bowled over by him in the "bum rush."

It’s the Obama administration being transparent again. This is the same script (with only minor differences) that they used with Trayvon Martin with most of the key players reprising their roles for the sequel.

Never mind that both Trayvon and Michael were thugs with prior records. (Michael’s juvenile records are “sealed”, which proves they exist.) Never mind that Trayvon had gone to the store to get ingredients for "purple drank" a potent mix of cough syrup and energy drink that´s drunk to get high, or that Michael had just robbed a convenience store of small cigars, that can be turned into "blunts" by replacing the tobacco with marijuana. Never mind that Trayvon was 6’1” and into MMA fighting and Michael was 6’4” and almost 300 pounds.

Get the MSM to portray them as innocent “kids” who were shot by racist white men (in Zimmerman’s case “white Hispanic”) simply because they were black. Then intimidate local authorities into arresting the shooter, even though the evidence indicates that they were within their rights to defend themselves at the time.

Facts don’t matter. This crisis is an opportunity to fire up the liberal base before an election.

#18, plus, what a recently retired Seattle cop told me? He said the men and women joining do not even have the attitude of "protect and serve." He said diversity takes precedence over sterling character, if the HR must choose. He said the union acts more totalitarian all the time too. He saw cops no better than thugs get away with murder - never even lost a day´s pay. He said he is very fearful for our cities.

#12 The friends of Officer Wilson report that he specifically wanted to work in Ferguson , with the African American community
so " he could make a difference ".
A couple of my white SF buddies decided after doing a couple of tours in Iraq and Afghanistan to become teachers instead of their prior careers.
The enrolled in the Troops to Teachers program, got certified and became teachers in inner city schools.
Because they always wanted to be teachers for starters and also thought they could make a difference
in the lives of black kids.
Theses guys were obviously not Kumbaya types.
One of the first things they were told over and over by other Troops to Teachers is that they would have to stifle their instincts and training when they saw a kid the size of Brown assaulting a
teacher or student.
Which was a daily occurrence. Using any kind of force to rescue the small black female teacher being attacked
would result in the rescuer being arrested for assault and no doubt charged with a civil rights violation.
Two no longer teach anymore, the 3rd now teaches in a suburban Catholic school , which is like being in another world.
Having been on the front lines in inner city schools they feel that no one can make a difference , it´s hopeless.
The home lives of many of the kids was horrendous , the culture of gangs , drugs and aversion to learning was endemic.
I asked my friend the other day if he thought
he might have reached anyone
and he said that one student he felt he made a connection with had graduated and now worked at Wal-Mart and he considered that a success story.

Of course they do. He attacked the cop, tried to take his gun, then ran back to attack him again. I´m waiting for the full toxicology report. You have to be either hopped up or brain dead to physically attack an armed police officer. You will likely not survive that event.

A new study from Johns Hopkins University suggests exactly what many conservative activists have been complaining about for years: Washington is out of touch with the rest of America. From Johns Hopkins: Surveying 850 people who either work in government or directly with it, researchers found that the inside-the-Beltway crowd has very little in common with America at large. Washington insiders are more likely to be white. They are more educated. Their salaries are higher, they vote more and have more faith in the fairness of elections.

America is silently acquiescing to President Obama’s extraordinarily expensive and flawed plan to fight Ebola in West Africa. Tuesday, Obama announced he is committing $763 million dollars and 3,000 military personnel to taming the outbreak that so far has killed 2,400 people. Though help is urgently needed there, the plan does too little to protect Americans. Obama said nothing about temporarily banning commercial air travel between the U.S. and West Africa, in order to help prevent Ebola from coming here. Some 220,000 residents of West African countries have visas that permit them to enter the United States.

Late yesterday, the Kansas supreme court granted the writ of mandamus filed by former Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Chad Taylor and ordered Kansas secretary of state Kris Kobach to remove Taylor’s name from the November ballot. But the controversy may not yet be over because of another writ filed by a Democratic voter. The court dismissed Kobach’s claim (explained in an earlier NRO post) that Taylor failed to comply with the state statute (K.S.A. 25-306b(b)) that requires a candidate who wants to withdraw to certify that “they are incapable of fulfilling the duties of office if elected.” Taylor sent a letter

Deval Patrick is one lucky hack. In most years, the bust-out governor of Massachusetts would be considered the absolute most incompetent politician in the United States, if not the world, hands down. But these days Deval couldn’t even get himself arrested, even though he certainly deserves to be, given his mis-, mal- and nonfeasance in office. Deval’s problem? When it comes to incompetence, and corruption, Barack Obama has sucked all of the air out of the room. His endless fiascoes have pushed every other pol’s scandals on the back pages.

Well, this ought to whet the appetites of certain journalists. Sarah Palin is among the confirmed speakers for the ninth annual Values Voters Summit next week in the nation’s capital. “Governor Palin has always been a steadfast supporter of natural marriage and every human’s right to life. She not only ‘talks the talk’ but also walks by her convictions. We are proud to stand with the Governor and are honored to have her presence, for the first time, at the Values Voter Summit,” says Tony Perkins, president of Family Research Council Action, organizer of the big doings.

There they go again. The New York Times Book Review, which has a history of belatedly recognizing conservative bestsellers, has banished conservative legal author David Limbaugh’s latest, Jesus on Trial, from its upcoming best seller list despite having sales better than 17 other books on the list. According to publishing sources, Limbaugh’s probe into the accuracy of the Bible sold 9,660 in its first week out, according to Nielsen BookScan. That should have made it No. 4 on the NYT print hardcover sales list. Instead, Henry Kissinger’s World Order, praised by Hillary Clinton in the Washington Post, is No. 4 despite weekly sales

It’s official: the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has issued an order declining a request for an en banc hearing in a case involving four students in at a California high school who were sent home for wearing American flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo. The full slate of Ninth Circuit judges has thus agreed with a lower district court and with a trio of appellate judges that officials at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, Calif. could censor students who wanted to wear flag-emblazoned shirts. The federal appeals court issued its denial of an en banc hearing on Sept.

A large government contracting firm that appears to be doing or seeking business with the National Security Agency employs the spouse of one of the most powerful officials at the agency, according to corporate records, press releases, and company websites. But the NSA has declined to address whether there is a potential conflict of interest or to disclose any information about contracts or the official’s financial holdings. The spouse, for years, has also had an intelligence technology company incorporated at the couple’s suburban residence in Maryland. The NSA official, Teresa H.

CLAYTON, Missouri -- Protesters seeking the immediate arrest of the white Ferguson police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black 18-year-old loudly disrupted another government meeting Tuesday. The group renewed calls to remove the county prosecutor investigating the case and vowed political retaliation against an elected official tied to the prosecutor. The demand for officer Darren Wilson´s arrest and the recusal of the St. Louis County prosecuting attorney began with the final utterance of the Pledge of Allegiance at the start of the St. Louis County Council meeting. "For all," crowd members shouted, emphasizing the second word, as the pledge concluded with,

Worried the pearly gates won´t have clean water? TV evangelist Jim Bakker has your back. Twenty years after his release from prison following rape and fraud allegations, the disgraced pastor is busy selling unique survival kits apparently for the Apocalypse. On his website for his latest TV program, "The Jim Bakker Show," the 74-year-old sells everything from bulk "End of the World Biscuits," "Extreme Survival Bottles" — two for $57 — and extreme cold-weather apparel. The evangelist, who considers himself one of today´s experts on the Book of Revelation, appears motivated by the prophetic scriptures in the Bible, which warn of the Rapture

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate. But the wholesale bashing of Wasserman Schultz at every level of the party -- White House,

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

That’s how long I want to live: 75 years.” He explains that his daughters disagree; so do his brothers and his friends. But, he says, “I am sure of my position…here is a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long is also a loss.

WASHINGTON — Kurdish fighters battling ISIS desperately want more guns and armor, but they already have a secret weapon: The fanatics they’re fighting fear that if they get killed in combat by a woman, they won’t go to heaven. “They have many female battalions, as you know who fought very bravely,” Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), who chairs the House International Relations Committee, told The Post of the Kurds. Royce, who met this week with the foreign minister of Kurdistan, cited recent reports of young female Kurdish troops “laughing” at ISIS forces they had turned back. “These ISIL soldiers apparently believed that if

The U.S Senate passed a bill Thursday evening that will give President Barack Obama the authority to arm moderate Syrian rebels, which is a key part of his plan to fight the jihadist group Islamic State (also known as ISIS and ISIL). Shortly after the Senate passed the bill, which was passed by the House on Wednesday, Obama spoke from the White House. "I´m pleased that Congress, a majority of Democrats and a majority of Republicans in both the House and Senate, have now voted to support a key element of our strategy," Obama said.

That rare respiratory illness sickening children around the country continues to crop up in new places. It has been confirmed in 22 states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday, appearing in three states where it had not been previously: Georgia, Michigan and Washington state. These children are facing an uncommon enterovirus strain. While enteroviruses in general are quite common, this particular strain — enterovirus 68 — has not cropped up terribly often since it was first identified in 1962. It can cause severe breathing problems, a particular danger for children who may suffer from asthma or other

We’re happy to call it that.” So its official: America is at war with the enemy of Islam. However, strange bedfellows arise if the Obama administration so chooses to uphold Kerry’s claim that we are at war with the enemy(s) of Islam. The following displays that Secretary

When reporters began to grill Rice about whether the president had already given the authorization to the militarily to bomb in Syria, Rice kept repeating they would not be releasing information on the timing of those air strikes. Reporters continued to push with several trying to explain their question is if the president has already given authorization. Laughing uncomfortably Rice exited the room

A man who’s a better speechwriter than his speechwriters, a better political director than his political directors, and who knows more about policy than his policy advisors must surely also be a better general than his generals, no? The U.S. military campaign against Islamist militants in Syria is being designed to allow President Barack Obama to exert a high degree of personal control, going so far as to require that the military obtain presidential signoff for strikes in Syrian territory, officials said. The requirements for strikes in Syria against the extremist group Islamic State will be far more stringent than those targeting
