BLOCKBUSTER REPORT: A Dozen Witnesses Have Corroborated Officer Darren Wilson’s Version of Ferguson Shooting
Many people already seem to think they know exactly what happened between Darren Wilson and Mike Brown. There are quite a few people who seem to think Brown was blown away for no reason after he surrendered and there are also a lot of people who believe Brown aggressively charged Wilson and was then shot to death. This is despite the fact that there have been conflicting eyewitness testimony that supports both accounts.
Personally, I haven’t formed a definite opinion about who was right and who was wrong. I figure that’s something for the courts to work out. However, the latest report from police sources in Ferguson to a St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter seems to solidly confirm Darren Wilson’s side of the story.
More than a dozen witnesses have backed up the account of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the controversial shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown, police sources reportedly told St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter Christine Byers.
Byers also reported on Monday that Brown’s body was transported from the county medical examiner to a funeral home and then back to the medical examiner for three autopsies.
….Though Wilson has not spoken publicly about his side of the story, an alleged friend of the officer, identified only as Josie, shared what she claimed to be Wilson’s recollection of events. CNN later confirmed that the woman’s account matches Wilson’s account of the shooting, according to their law enforcement sources.
The woman called into TheBlaze TV host Dana Loesch’s radio show on Friday, claiming that Brown “bum-rushed” Wilson moments after pushing him into his squad car, punching him in the face and trying to grab the cop’s gun.
“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,” the caller added. “The final shot was in the forehead, and then he fell about two or three feet in front of the officer.”

Of course, there’s a world of difference between “police sources” telling the reporter that a dozen people have verified Wilson’s story and producing a dozen witnesses who’ve verified Wilson’s story, but if it’s true, it’s all over but the protesting, the rioting and the crying because Wilson is going to walk.
