Uh oh, the missive that Michael Brown was a sweet innocent young boy that was gunned down for no reason by a racist white cop is falling apart by the minute. Fox News is reporting that police officer Darren Wilson was severely beaten by the suspect before firing his weapon.
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. He was beaten very severely,” said the source.
This source also corroborates other witnesses’ testimony that Michael Brown did in fact attack the officer:
(Wilson) ordered Michael Brown and his friend Dorain Johnson to stop walking in the middle of the road because they were obstructing traffic. However, the confrontation quickly escalated into physical violence, the source said..
“They ignored him and the officer started to get out of the car to tell them to move. They shoved him right back in, that’s when Michael Brown leans in and starts beating Officer Wilson in the head and the face.”
Brown started to walk away according to the account, prompting Wilson to draw his gun and order him to freeze. Brown, the source said, raised his hands in the air, and turned around saying, “What, you’re going to shoot me?”
At that point, the source told FoxNews.com, the 6 foot, 4 inch, 292-pound Brown charged Wilson, prompting the officer to fire…
A cop, actually anyone, has the right to defend themselves against great bodily harm. If Michael Brown hadn’t been shot he could have beaten Darren Wilson further, or even worse, got a hold of his gun and killed the officer.
If these facial injuries pan out to be true, it is proof positive that Officer Wilson acted not only within his rights, but also in accordance to his training.
This is looking more and more like a righteous shooting, not the racist execution of an unarmed black man as the media is reporting. At what point do the rioters and black activists realize that Michael Brown was is 100% at fault for his own death? My guess is never, they’ve invested too much into the false narrative to turn back now.
