Report: Fed Gov´t Autopsy
Also Finds Michael Brown
Not Shot in Back

Breitbart Big Government, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 9/2/2014 8:17:59 PM

It took the Washington Post 2,017 words and 59 paragraphs in a feature about Dorian Johnson, who initially said that his friend Michael Brown was shot in the back, to reveal that the federal government´s autopsy also reportedly did not find that to be the case. As the Post noted in its profile of Dorian Johnson, Brown´s "body had been autopsied three times — once each by St. Louis County police, a pathologist hired by Brown’s family and federal authorities. All found that Brown had been shot at least six times, including twice in the head but not in the

Facts don´t matter. Especially if they are inconvenient. The Party Line trumpeted constantly by the Left Media will push the official narrative regardless. I only hope enough people get disgusted enough for the November polls.

There have only been two autopsies.
Baden and the orderly he and the media passed off
as a " Professor " were just able to look
at Brown´s body at a funeral home.
A funeral home that did not even have a cooler , so there´s no telling what condition the body was in.
Baden and his orderly did not take tissue samples, weigh organs, do blood work, take x rays, examine the clothes ,
do ballistic comparisons , etc. required in an autopsy.

But, uh, the accomplice in the robbery, I mean, Eric Holder´s federal witness said he saw the officer shoot his friend in the back....for no good reason. He was just walkin´ down the street thinkin´ about college on his way to grandmother´s house when he was shot in the back because he was black. Take your three autopsies and shove ´em.

While it is true that he was not shot in the back, the charge of doing so, however misleading, will continue to be advanced until it becomes true enough to convict the innocent police officer. Justice, not truth, is the desired outcome in this case.

Hey, back off with that pesky truth. We got the signs printed, we got the slogan all memorized and the hand gestures. Come election time, we are marching and chanting and we don´t care about what the autopsy. That is what the left will say. Just look at exonerating George Zimmerman in the Trayvon Martin case, they still continue with the narrative regardless of what a jury trial concluded.

Simply put, our So called "Leaders" Prime otivation was to prove racial prejudice. Obama and Holder should provide the same ZEAL and Dedication to all injustices namely. Fast and Furious, Benghize,the I.R.S. and the rest of Obamas problems.

#4, if you want to get technical there was only one autopsy, then.

The DOJ autopst was done even afther the Baden one, after Michaels´ body was embalmed, on the 17th.

Of course, you do know that likely any tissue samples taken from the original autopsy were shared between all 3 partners, though it was likely onky one toxicology report was done.

The game changer will be the opinions post autopsy, how each ME will shape their opinion. Much like Baden, who shaped his to support the Al Sharpton payors. They got what they laid for, an opinion that fit their agenda.

Baden had to be careful, however, knowing others were viewing the same body, and doing the same work, all he really had to offer that was most offensive was, "He was shot 6 times. No one should be shot that much".

Very unprofessional, and immediately obvious, as, Baden wasn´t there, and, has no right to declare any circumstances as such.

Makes one wonder what Baden would have said about the FBI shootout with bankrobbers in Mississippi, that took 47 and 49 shots to take down each man. Several FBI agents died in that shootout.

Baden has absolutely no right making declarative statements about circumstances like that. It simply shows his bias.

Baden is an old money-grubbing publicity hound who has given up all credibility on the altar of self-promotion.

At least Holder got off a little aside that they would use the local (county) ME´s autopsy - presumably as a base and go from there. I read that Holder´s "autopsy" was done by a an Army pathologist.

Re #25, toxicology usually takes 6 weeks. County ME will not release its autopsy report until the tox report is in. I believe that that is standard procedure in most, i fnot all, jurisdictions, as it is part of the official autopsy report that the ME signs off on.

Obviously Mr. Brown was shot by a white guy hiding behind the grassy knoll. He was a better shot than Officer Wilson, who missed every time as Michael fled with his hands up.

A Texas judge once ruled that a fleeing felon shot dead by a Texas Ranger had committed suicide. Reasoning being that if a Texas Ranger yells halt and you run, it´s suicide.
You punch a cop´s face in then bull rush the cop, it´s suicide.

The left seems to be letting this fade from the news. Have to wonder why. Wilson has a severely fractured eye socket? Brown has a criminal record, and is a very large 300 pounds. Perhaps people don´t care or recognize its being used politically to gin up the black vote which they already have and its actually costing them votes.

Fence-jumper makes it

WASHINGTON — A man jumped over the fence of the White House on Friday and made it through the front door before officers managed to apprehend him, just minutes after President Barack Obama had departed, the Secret Service said. The intruder sprinted toward the White House after leaping over the fence and ignored commands from officers to stop, Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said. He was ultimately apprehended just inside the North Portico doors, the grand, columned entrance that looks out over Pennsylvania Ave. Donovan said the man appeared to be unarmed to officers who spotted him jumping the fence,

During the course of the debate, the issue of education came up.

It should come as no surprise when movies dovetail with the wider social conversation. But this week, the collision is occurring with particularly crystallizing force. To wit: The arrival of a Liam Neeson movie isn’t exactly news, although his new one, “A Walk Among the Tombstones,” is notable on several counts. For one thing, it marks the return of Neeson to the kind of substantive, mature roles his fans have craved while he’s been making science-fiction fantasies and franchise installments. As New York detective Matt Scudder, Neeson settles easily into a role that calls for equal parts muscular brawn and

What was the Islamic State thinking? We know it is sophisticated in its use of modern media. But what was the logic of propagating to the world videos of its beheadings of two Americans (and subsequently a Briton) — sure to inflame public opinion? There are two possible explanations. One is that these terrorists are more depraved and less savvy than we think. They so glory in blood that they could not resist making an international spectacle of their savagery — after all, they proudly broadcast their massacre of Shiite prisoners — and did not quite fathom how such a

The United States has made the same mistake in evaluating fighters from the Islamic State that it did in Vietnam — underestimating the enemy’s will, according to James Clapper, the director of national intelligence. Clapper’s comments came in a telephone interview Wednesday, in which he summarized the elements of a new National Intelligence Strategy released this week. Clapper also answered some broader questions about intelligence issues confronting the country. Asked whether the intelligence community had succeeded in its goal of providing “anticipatory intelligence” about the extremist movement in Syria and Iraq that has declared itself the Islamic State, Clapper said

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.

Guns are becoming the prop of choice in campaign ads around the country this midterm year. Take it as another sign that the Obama administration’s gun control push is running aground: Firearms have become this year’s go-to accessory for candidates of both parties seeking to advertise their toughness and willingness to fight. Republicans, and even some Democrats, in a dozen states are showing off their shooting skills in videos and television ads or posing with firearms in mailers, underscoring the backlash against federal and state proposals to restrict access to guns and ammunition.

Weeks before the State Department assured Americans that things were operating “normally” at its consulate in the Kurdish capital of Erbil in August, concerned procurement officials were quietly saying the advance of militants of the Islamic State, also known as ISIL or ISIS, meant the government needed to shell out tens of millions of dollars to counter a “rapidly deteriorating” security situation. On a no-bid basis, the State Department nearly doubled the size of a task order to defense contractor Triple Canopy, which had been hired to train Iraqi security forces but was asked to now perform diplomatic security and

The Obama administration quietly has been forcing new gun buyers to declare their race and ethnicity, a policy change that critics say provides little law enforcement value while creating the risk of privacy intrusions and racial profiling. With little fanfare, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in 2012 amended its Form 4473 — the transactional record the government requires gun purchasers and sellers to fill out when buying a firearm — to identify buyers as either Hispanic, Latino or not. Then a buyer must check his or her race: Indian, Asian, black, Pacific Islander or white. The

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.

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. Obama, who reiterated the fact

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

(Video)Friday during the White House press briefing, National Security Advisor Susan Rice abruptly left in the middle of a question after confusing reporters with her announcement President Barack Obama was going ahead with air strikes in Syria.
