Remember hearing the question? “Can Officer Darren Wilson receive a fair trial?”
That really got me to thinking, if these white people don’t believe that a white police officer can receive a fair trial in America, then there really must be something wrong with our so-called ‘justice system’. Which is something that I’ve been saying for decades, we have a lot of laws, a lot of cops, but no justice.
It also got me to wonder, can Michael Brown receive a fair trial?
Michael Browns prosecutor, jury, judge and executioner was Officer Darren Wilson. And his sentence was carried out without appeal. I wasn’t there. I can’t say if it was a ‘justified homicide’ or not. None of us really know what happened that day for sure, except Michael Brown (and he ain’t talkin’), Officer Darren Wilson and Mike’s friend.
Actually, Mike does have something to say and dead men don’t lie. What Mike can tell us is how many times he was shot. Or to be more specific, the autopsy tells us how many times Mr. Brown was shot and where.
We’ve also heard some conflicting reports as to the incident. And while they don’t help us, they are embedded into our brains for better or for worse.
We were told that a scuffle took place. That Brown and the officer fought over the officers firearm and that Officer Wilson accidentally discharged his service revolver inside his patrol car and was punched in his eye and suffered broken bones (broken eye-socket), he was also bum rushed and fearing for his life and that is when he shot and killed Michael Brown. That is the official story, right?
We are also told that Mr. Brown is a very bad person who robbed a liquor store of cigars and refused orders to get out of the middle of the road when first confronted by Officer Wilson. We have also been told that this justifies murder. That as an officer, Mr. Wilson did everything in his power to not have to shoot Mr. Brown but was forced to by the victim, over and over again. In this Topsy-turvy world of make believe there’s no reason to protest, except in support of the killer, Officer Wilson. And wonder if he can receive a fair trial in America.
None of what we’ve been told is true. Not even close. Here’s what we do know…
NO INJURIES immediately after the shooting, officer Darren Wilson is seen walking calmly around the body with no signs of discomfort or injury (for hours).
Officer Darren Wilson did not require hospitalization. Wilson did go to the hospital, hours after the shooting but Officer Wilson did not require, nor was he treated for any injuries.
A police report on the death of Michael Brown is missing key information and violates Missouri open records laws.
The two-page document, which the Ferguson Police Department released only after pressure from journalists and civil liberties advocates, is largely redacted or left blank.
The small city of Jennings, Mo., had a police department so troubled, and with so much tension between white officers and black residents, that the city council finally decided to disband it. Everyone in the Jennings police department was fired. New officers were brought in to create a credible department from scratch.
Guess what? Darren Wilson was one of those officers. Some of the officers reapplied for their old jobs, but Wilson himself took a position in Ferguson.
5.) Jim Hoft wrote that his source for the claim about the fractured eye socket was the St. Louis County Prosecutor’s office. The St. Louis County Prosecutor’s office never made such a claim.
6.) Michael brown was a very bad person and he did steal cigars, there’s video. Most kids steal something and never get shot for it. But an autopsy toxicology report would later show that Mike had weed in his system, which proves he was a very bad person indeed. The only problem here is that cops are exempt from having to take drug test, even after discharging their weapon, so we will never know what drugs Officer Wilson was on. Or how drunk Officer Wilson was when he shot Mr. Brown.
7.) Autopsy report shows Mike was shot at least six times, including twice in the head. One of the bullets entered the top of Mr. Brown’s skull, suggesting his head was bent forward when it struck him and caused a fatal injury. Mr. Brown was also shot four times in the right arm.
One of the bullets shattered Mr. Brown’s right eye, traveled through his face, exited his jaw and re-entered his collarbone. The last two shots in the head would have stopped him in his tracks and were likely the last fired.
An eye witness Tiffany Mitchell said in an interview with MSNBC , “Mr. Brown turned, raised his hands”, and said, “I don’t have a gun, stop shooting!”
Officer Wilson continued to fire and Mr. Brown crumpled to the ground, Ms. Mitchell said.
Next time you hear some George Orwell ‘Animal Farm’ propaganda, remember to check the source. Personally, I really hope that Officer Darren Wilson’s trial is fair and impartial, oops, I mean, I hope that charges are brought against Officer Darren Wilson. Yes, no drug test, no charges and on a paid vacation. Only in this twisted sick world are people out raising money for the officer instead of for the grieving family. God Bless America!
UPDATE: Officially, the Grand jury and the DOJ (Dept. of Justice) both failed to bring any charges. Unofficially, two NYPD officers were executed as retaliation. No justice, no peace, fuck the police.
