New Evidence in Michael Brown Incident Clears Police

Initial reports of a gentle giant etc contrasts sharply with the strong arm robbery assault on the merchant and attacking  a policeman. The narrative seems to remain that the conduct of the police should only be questioned.  The talking points from the Mike Brown supporters seem to fall apart further every day. A simple youtube video provides some great insight into the Mike Brown incident.

The  full post below goes into detail, but  links, excerpts and an embedded clip of the video in question follow.

Eye Witness Audio of Mike Brown Shooting States: “Brown Doubled Back Toward POlice”…

The video was taken in the aftermath of the shooting, and judging from the comments attributed to the uploader -although he was not a direct witness- he felt the video was affirmational toward Mike Brown and the anti-police narrative.

However, probably unknown -or at least unnoticed- in the background of the video you can hear an audio conversation of a male eye witness to the shooting itself describing what he saw to another curious male spectator. Again, the conversation of importance is in the background.

*Most importantly, that description of events matches other witnesses and accounts such as the following: 

FIRST, The friend describes the event -as told to her by Wilson- as follows:

He pulled up ahead of them. And then he got a call-in that there was a strong-arm robbery. And, they gave a description. And, he’s looking at them and they got something in their hands and it looks like it could be what, you know those cigars or whatever. So he goes in reverse back to them. Tries to get out of his car. They slam his door shut violently. I think he said Michael did. And, then he opened the car again. He tried to get out. He stands up.
And then Michael just bum-rushes him and shoves him back into his car. Punches him in the face and them Darren grabs for his gun. Michael grabbed for the gun. At one point he got the gun entirely turned against his hip. And he shoves it away. And the gun goes off. 
Well, then Michael takes off and gets to be about 35 feet away. And, Darren’s first protocol is to pursue. So, he stands up and yells, “Freeze!” Michael and his friend turn around. And Michael taunts him… And then all the sudden he just started bumrushing him. He just started coming at him full speed. And, so he just started shooting. And, he just kept coming. And, so he really thinks he was on something.” (link)
