Conscience of a Conservative
Well, the liberal news media, that so often slant and hide the facts, managed to get it half right when they described Michael Brown, the Ferguson, Missouri thug killed by the police. Hardly the “gentle” sort, the 6’4″ 292 lb. man was a giant, but the liberal news media all decided to call him a gentle giant because it sounded so nice. And Michael Brown proved what he was capable of doing when he lifted and tossed a convenience store clerk during a robbery that was caught on video shortly before his encounter with the police. And before getting shot, Michael Brown inflicted serious injury on Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson. Gateway Pundit reported, ” Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.” This comes from a source within the Prosecuting Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis County Police.” Furthermore, describing the slanted news coverage, according to the Media Research Center, the various stories coming from the Associated Press describing Michael Brown as a “teen” and “teenager” are in stark contravention with the AP’s own Style Book that requires reporters to refer to a person 18-years old or older as a “man” or “woman” and not a teenager.
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is as much of a black racist as Malik Shabazz, leader of the New Black Panthers and any of those who traveled to Ferguson, Missouri to incite the riots that have engulfed the city since the August 9th shooting. Holder, who previously ordered his DOJ attornies to squash the complaints aginst the New Black Panthers for voter intimidation, has ordered his Dept. of Justice to conduct a third autopsy on Michael Brown. Hoping to find some hidden clues that can be used to challenge the facts already revealed. Eye-witnesses to the shooting say that Michael Brown and his friend were walking down the middle of the street when Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson pulled up in his police cruiser and told him to get off the street. The initial fight between Brown and Police Officer Wilson began when Officer Wilson tried to get out of his cruiser and Brown shoved him back inside. CNN reported “When Wilson tried to get out of his cruiser, Brown first tried to push the officer back into the car, then punched him in the face and grabbed for his gun before breaking free after the gun went off once, the caller said.” It is not clear if that first shot struck Brown or not. The Medical Examiner did not say if any powder burns were found on Brown or his shirt which suggests that Brown was some distance away when he was hit by Officer Wilson’s bullets.
Then Michael Brown began to run away but stopped when Officer Wilson ordered him to freeze. But then, with all of his huge size, Brown turned around and lowered his head and charged full speed some 30-50 feet at the police officer. It was then that Officer Wilson shot him six times. The first two autopsies showed Brown received four bullet wounds to his right arm and two bullet wounds to his head. One of the head wounds was straight down indicating Brown’s head was in a lowered, charging position, not unlike the position of a front line football player.
The complete toxicology report on Michael Brown hasn’t been completed or released yet but it was revealed yesterday that Brown had marijuana in his system which could further explain his belligerent attitude.
The liberal news media immediately sprang into action as they did in Florida when George Zimmerman, a volunteer neighborhood watch captain shot Trayvon Martin after he was viciously attacked. The police were labeled as racists and Michael Brown was bemoaned as an innocent gentle giant who was loved by everyone and who wouldn’t hurt a fly. None of the liberal news media coverage was substantiated by facts and what little information came to light was leaked out in dribs and drabs by local officials. It was the conservative bloggers who began to uncover the real story. Here is the account as posted on the IJReview blog. Go read the entire story there.
A previously unnoticed detail in a background conversion of a video taken minutes after the Ferguson shooting could change the course of the investigation into Mike Brown’s death.
The original video poster appears sympathetic to the narrative that Mike Brown was shot unarmed with his hands in the air. But he unknowingly picks up conversation between a man who saw the altercation and another neighbor.
An approximate transcription of the background conversation, as related by the “Conservative Treehouse” blog, who originally discovered the conversation:
@6:28/6:29 of video
#1 How’d he get from there to there?
#2 Because he ran, the police was still in the truck – cause he was like over the truck
#2 But him and the police was both in the truck, then he ran – the police got out and ran after him
#2 Then the next thing I know he doubled back toward him cus – the police had his gun drawn already on him –
So after being wounded by the not so gentle giant, and now seeing him charging back to renew his attack, Ferguson Police Office Darren Wilson began firing his weapon in self defense. The last of the six shots were to Michael Brown’s head which were the killing shots so the first shots must have been to his arm to stop him but were ineffective. Michael Brown finally fell to the ground dead only a few feet away.
I have never sympathized with the overly militarized tactics of local police forces or their use of the armored tanks brought into Ferguson to quell the riots but this incident was clearly a case of self-defense.
