I'm curious how they're going to even attempt to excuse the shooting as self defense when the body was found 35 feet away from the police car. Furthermore, there's that article that's going around saying the officer had a broke eye orbital socket, which started on some no name right wing rag website with no journalistic standards and was basically regurgitated on every other right wing outlet, the Daily Kos had an interesting take on this claim to call bullshit...
Q - How was Michael Brown able to generate so much power in a punch as to break the officers eye socket when his movements were constrained by the tight quarters inside the cruiser window?
Q - Why was no mention made of this injury until ten days after the shooting? We know that the FPD and SLC prosecutor were throwing everything out there they could find in their efforts to demonize Michael Brown and defend officer Wilson. If his injuries were as bad as they claim, there is no doubt in my mind that they would have been parading photos of his battered face all over the TV machine.
Q - In the autopsy report, the doctor claimed that there were no indications on Michael Brown's body of a physical struggle. Unless the doctor is quite incompetent, one would expect that this analysis included an examination of Michael's hands. If he had hit the cop so hard as to break his eye orbital, one would expect to see trauma to his hand and knuckles. No such trauma was reported.
Q - According to a timeline of the incident, there was an ambulance there within a few minutes as it was responding to another call in the area. While it was reported that they stopped to assess Michael Brown, there is no mention of them providing any sort of medical assistance to Wilson.
Q - In Piaget Crenshaw's video of the immediate aftermath of the shooting, Wilson can be seen wandering around the crime scene and conversing with officers. If he was truly so badly injured it should be apparent in how he appears in the video. His face looked clean, and his demeanor was not that of someone who was severely injured. No attention was being given by any of those present to his supposed injuries.
Q - Far from being attended to and taken to the hospital for care - things one would reasonable expect in such circumstances - officer Wilson DRIVES away in his cruiser. For a man who was moments ago almost knocked unconscious, this seems unreasonable as well. Why would the other officers allow him to drive if he had just undergone such a traumatic experience?
There's things to suggest the police have no intention to fairly investigate this shooting. For instance, there's no detailed police report of what happened nearly two weeks after this happened, which prosecutors announced yesterday. Police refused to interview key witnesses. They went on a smear campaign against Michael brown but refused to offer any details of the autopsy, how many shots were fired and how many hit, and the name of the officer involved. The only thing they did reveal was the officer's name, and that's only because Anonymous beat them to the punch and hacked the Ferguson police computers and got the dispatch tapes, interesting details on that end as they note that officers on the scene did not report the shooting when it happened, and rather made calls for crowd control, and the police headquarters didn't even learn about the shooting until seeing it on the news.
