Missouri cop was badly beaten before,
shooting Michael Brown, says source

Fox News, by Hollie McKay

Original Article

Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, Mo., police officer whose fatal shooting of Michael Brown touched off more than a week of demonstrations, suffered severe facial injuries, including an orbital (eye socket) fracture, and was nearly beaten unconscious by Brown moments before firing his gun, a source close to the department´s top brass told FoxNews.com. “The Assistant (Police) Chief took him to the hospital, his face all swollen on one side,” said the insider. “He was beaten very severely.” According to the well-placed source, Wilson was coming off another case in the neighborhood on Aug. 9 when he ordered Michael Brown and

Sorry, too late. The "truth" is already out there. If this is true, why hasn´t his picture with these injuries been released? Everything else about the man has been, including his name and address. Maybe because it doesn´t fit the narrative.

This fact was both self-evident and newsworthy the day it happened, so why is it being reported only a week later? It could have significantly altered the nature and the level of reaction to the shooting if it had been given prominent reporting that same day. Why wasn´t it?

Please understand, Eric Holder doesn´t care what happened to this police officer. You see, years ago, Mr Holder was pulled over by police for speeding and his car was searched. So, you can see why police using excessive force means a lot to him. I´m sure that none of you white guys have ever experienced being pulled over and your car searched. You know, white privilege. sarcasm/

Eric Holder is a disgusting human being.

Demonstrations? Looting, lawlessness, violence and threats, destruction and mayhem are now demonstrations? What´s happening in the Middle East, a soccer game?

Who is you gonna believe? The white cop with the fractured eye socket or the Rev. Al Sharpton and the looters in the hood? Or, are ya gonna give street cred to the white police chief who drove the injured cop to the hospital or to Michael Brown´s TV daddy, Barack Obama, who has been golfin, dancin and fist bumpin on the Vine cause he cares about poor peoples like us? Finally, are you gonna believe that video of a menacing giant stealin a box of cigarillos or the LA Times report that St Michael was simply an aspiring rapper and gentle giant? Youse gotta decide, dude.

The facts about the Ferguson incident matter little. It´s the narrative that this was a racial incident, one of hundreds if not thousands occurring hourly in the US, that matters. Enough, since Thursday is the National Day of Rage to honor a thug who has just made all of our lives less safe. If ya want to buy a set of chrome wheels for your Sclade, cheap, just let me know.

An interesting question is who is withholding the photos (remember George Zimmerman). The only reason can be that they want black on white violence escalated and blacks to continue to feel persecuted by whites. It´s time for every cop on the Ferguson police force to find another job, except for the three who meet Holder´s melanin requirements. Sick!

Even the local news stations still report that "the innocent, unarmed team was shot by the cop as he was holding his hands up..." as they report on another night of violence. They get their news stories from the White House. This is a terrible state we are in. No one, including the Attorney General, is seeking the truth. God help us!

Don´t forget, the first pictures of Zimmerman were those that were angled in a way that hid his injuries, and NOT the accurate ones with blood all over his face and his head.

Now that the physical evidence is in, rather than just testimony and conjecture, it clearly appears to have been self-defense. Police have been convicted of murder, but the injuries of Wilson and Brown prove Wilson´s story beyond any doubt.

#8 -- It´s less about who is withholding the pictures but why are they withholding information. While, I agree, it would be ideal for the police force and the DA to release information to "calm the masses" the truth of the matter is the DA is actually playing this correctly (unlike in the Zimmerman case) and is withholding information so that he can be presented properly and without the taint of the media to a Grand Jury. The DA could make the lone decision to prosecute or not, instead, he´s going to send it to a grand jury -- with all the evidence -- and let them make the determination. Get ready for all hell to break loose when the grand jury comes back with a determination that this case cannot be prosecuted based on the evidence.

The hard evidence is a shocking incitement of the people who played this. From the DOJ attempting to thwart news agencies from playing the store video to the Governor sitting on this information, there has been a concerted effort to incite violence from the Black Community.
The injuries and the property damaged caused by this effort to ´rally their base´ - has left blood on their hands.
Someone white needs prosecuted, and it isn´t the officer who did his job, risked his life, and was injured in the line of duty.

A black policeman in Salt Lake City shot and killed an unarmed young white man of 20 years. There is a complete blanket of silence by the national press and the local media calls the policeman as being "not white". When Holder shows due recognition of such incidents I will have some respect for what he has to say (maybe).

Figure it out, folks. We are being trained to accept blacks being able to get away with anything. They do what they want with no repercussions. They take what they want with no repercussions. They don´t work and we work to support them. You get beat down and you shut up and take it.

I, for one, am not going to take it. Wake up whites, latinos and asians. Blacks are posing cowards and will run crying like little girls if they are challenged. They have to fight in packs because they can´t fight one on one.

Every article and news story I´ve read/seen about the aid workers helping the black victims of Ebola in Africa have all been white; Canadians, Americans and European.

So Eric says he got yelled at by a DC cop when he was the US Attorney - odds are that the DC cop who yelled at him was black.

Eric and Co. better be careful in wanting a race war. Let them continue to burn down their own communities - just shows how ignorant "his peole" are.

Remember the Duke Lacrosse ordeal. Media decides the story line and facts don´t matter. By the time the facts come out it is too late. They should have put photos of the cop out right away to slow some of the rush to judgement. MSM isn´t going to go there at all if someone doesn´t push their nose in it and make them see it. MSM are not journalists, they are activists and agitators.

FTA: “A powerful, ugly spin has completely ruined public discourse on this whole situation.”

Easier to count the news stories, since 2008, where this understatement is NOT applicable. You´d almost think it was stategy, huh? /s

Like tornadic activity in darkness, the wake of spin is ruin that can only be assessed and cleaned up after the storm when the dawning of light reveals the harsh truth of reality for all to see.

May the providence of our holy, omniscient, omnipotent God bring blessings on the innocent and peace through His righteous justice.

Some people would like to see the lawlessness in the black community spread throughout the rest of American society. After all, if the lawlessness is tolerated in the black community why shouldn´t it be tolerated elsewhere. Blacks want to see leniency in the law. Lefty politicians see votes. The rich and political elites already live apart. The truth may be suppressed, a Missouri cop may well be railroaded, and the United States becomes a much more dangerous place.

A description of the gunshot wounds that came from the front and were mostly on his arms with two in his head together with a picture of the officer who fired the shots with his head stove in, early on and widely distributed would have stopped this thing dead in its tracks just as it has now that the info has been released. Given that information it is impossible to construct a scenario in which gentle Mikey obeys the officer and is then brutally executed while laying on the ground. However drug high Mikey fearing arrest for robbery making a suicidal charge on the officer and being shot down is easy to believe. Someone either made a bad mistake withholding the info or perhaps was encouraged to withhold the info by someone who wanted the stir the pot.

Al Sharpton, the high priest of the race baiting church of color has rushed to Ferguson, Missouri to build an altar to his god of inequality which apparently requires human sacrifice now. The appropriate candidate must be a white law enforcement officer. He has built the altar and struck the match, all he needs now is the sacrifice. Nothing less will suffice. Officer Wilson will be offered up to appease those who will never be appeased. Guilt or innocence is immaterial.

The instigators will only see this sitation as a white on black killing, that he was a teen, that he was unarmed. No other shades of gray for them-it´s digital.

Commieblaster.com has an article that explains that Valerie Jarrett is orchestrating this whole charade.

The author of Injustice, about Eric Holder´s Justice Dept, was on Fox the other day and said that Holder carries some kind of decree/card in his wallet professing his alliance with black criminals.

CNN had on an attorney of a witness(ahem) this AM and they were submitting the false narrative that Brown was a victim here, was giving up, even had his hands raised, lol. So this strong arm bandit all of a sudden has a revelation that he´s going to give up, pay his debt to society and go peacefully to jail. ha ha ha ha ha. Now that´s a good one!

It is hard to fathom that Wilson won´t be charged considering the unbelievable witch hunt but it will end up just like the Zimmerman trial outcome. The racialists are about to have another epic fail, never learn. They´ll try to milk this for all it´s worth and do their best to make it stay on media coverage into November.

The defense for Brown is saying how do you explain Brown being shot six times.
This is not a a difficult to explain. After Wilson had his eye socket crushed by Brown, I would think his vision, now severely impaired, was probably the main reason Wilson fired not one but several shots back to stop this bully in his tracks.

not "equal justice for mobs."

and then someone should inform Holder...that Americans have the constitutional right of the people peaceably to assemble,
we do not, however have the right to loot, throw fire bombs, and completely destroy a persons business.

Darren Wilson should bring a lawsuit against Sharpton and Jackson for inciting violence against him, and others. Those two should be sued all over the country by the many people they have verbally assaulted and put in harm´s way. It would be great if they could be financially busted and humiliated in public.

On Wednesday, the ex-CNN talk show host wrote his first story as editor-at-large for the Daily Mail. While the content is vicious, angry and sure to tickle conservative journalists and pols, the writing is colorful, even entertaining.“A slapdash Secret Service detail isn’t what’s wrong with the White House — the real scandal is a President who is so complacent about protecting Americans,” the headline blares. Piers predicts that now that President Obama went on “60 Minutes” and distanced himself from U.S. national intelligence agencies on the rapid spread of ISIS, he’s guaranteed himself leaks to the media for the remainder of his

Behind the rotten culture is arrogance. After uniformed officers failed to take out 42-year-old Omar J. Gonzalez when he hopped over the fence and ran into the White House, the Secret Service issued a statement saying the officers “showed restraint.” The statement provoked laughter among senior FBI officials. But in its arrogance, the Secret Service thought it could get away with issuing such an outrageous claim and the public would accept it.With similar hubris, the agency leaves the doors to the White Horse unlocked. The idea is that the vaunted Secret Service can handle any problem and can waive the

Can´t anyone in government do anything right these days? Time was when the Secret Service seemed an exemplar of professionalism and dedication, an agency with a focused mission and largely immune from the bureaucratic bumbling inherent to big government. In recent years, it´s seemed more like Animal House. The intruder blew past one guard and was stopped only by an off-duty officer. And this was one of hundreds of apparent security breaches.

A Canadian member of the loathed Islamic State claimed the group is plotting an attack on New York City — and will one day fly its flag over the White House. Days before Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi warned of terrorist plots on subways in New York City and Paris, a video emerged showing an ISIS shill named Farah Shirdon widening the scope of the threat. “God willing, we will make some attacks in New York soon,” he said in a video interview with Vice News last week. “A lot of brothers are mobilizing there right now.” He vowed that U.S.-based fighters are “mobilizing for a brilliant attack.”

Last week, member Mike Rapkoch offered the following in an excellent post on Judge Richard Posner’s derisive comments regarding tradition: Mike Rapkoch: Tradition is not… just a bunch of old stuff. Tradition is the foundation of rational conduct, and the means through which mankind passes on the social capital which has accumulated through the experience of thousands of generations that have already confronted the vicissitudes of life… Further: In the face of the superstitions of the eager innovator, tradition should be seen for what it provides: knowledge. The world, and every nation that ever sat upon it, generates

As the House Select Committee on Benghazi prepares for its first hearing this week, a former State Department diplomat is coming forward with a startling allegation: Hillary Clinton confidants were part of an operation to “separate” damaging documents before they were turned over to the Accountability Review Board investigating security lapses surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attacks on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.New Benghazi allegation puts spotlight on Hillary Clinton confidants, alleged after-hours document review.According to former Deputy Assistant Secretary Raymond Maxwell, the after-hours session took place over a weekend in a basement operations-type center at State Department

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

The hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says he is thinking about running for president in 2016. In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said. Graham, 59, also dismissed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 43, as a presidential candidate, saying he is too young. “He’s a good
