Ferguson News That’s Not Expected Until Next Week

October 29, 2014

by Crane-Station

Yesterday, CNN reported that police Chief  Thomas Jackson will step down “as part of the effort by city officials to reform the police department.” In a move that CNN reports may not happen until next week, Jackson will step down, and the St. Louis County police chief will assume the management position.

Today, Chief Jackson is publicly denying that the CNN story is true. The St. Louis Dispatch reports:

“It’s absolutely not true. Nobody has asked me to resign, nor have I been fired,” Jackson said.

He added: “If I do resign, it will be my own choice.”

CNN’s report cited unnamed “government officials familiar with the discussions ongoing between local, state and federal officials” as saying Jackson is expected to step down.

Mayor James Knowles III confirmed that Jackson has not resigned. “He’s stayed strong with us till this point,” Knowles said by text. “Don’t see that changing.”

Which version is true? CNN says that it relied on government officials who are familiar with ongoing discussions. Perhaps it is a matter of semantics. If the chief decides to spend more time with the family, it will be his choice to do so. If he leaves to explore other options, he will not have been fired or forced out or run out on a rail or anything of the sort. No. It will most definitely be his “own choice.” Either way, he likely won’t choose to make a choice to not stay, until next week. Next week is a big week though, because after the elections on Tuesday, the grand jury (which has been leaking like a sieve) will likely announce its decision, not to indict Officer Darren Wilson for killing Michael Brown.

Monday – October 27, 2014 3:00 PM ET USA

Last night we announced that we have received over the past several days a series of leaks from two separate and unrelated sources regarding the long awaited Grand Jury decision regarding the murder of Mike Brown by Ferguson PD Officer Darren Wilson. In our opinion after careful analysis the sources are reliable, and the information we are about to reveal is true. Both sources are government employees with access to both internal government as well as confidential police communications. For reasons of safety we will not be revealing anything further on either our sources or the material leaked to us. The following is a synopses of the leaked information:

On or about November 10, 2014 the Grand Jury decision will be announced. Darren Wilson will NOT be indicted on ANY charges related to the murder of Mike Brown. All local police Chiefs and jail commanders have been notified to begin preparing for major civil unrest. Governor Nixon has been notified of the impending announcement and has ordered the Missouri National Guard to begin preparations for a possible re-enstatement of the martial law that was declared at the beginning of the Ferguson protests.

Does this surprise you, or not? Just now on television news, MSNBC is also saying that there will likely be a big “shake-up” in the Ferguson Police Department that will include a transition of management to St. Louis County. The one disturbing development though, is the build-up for “civil unrest” that will follow the likely non-indictment. In other words, it appears that there is some not-really secret preparation for even more killing, in the streets. They are expecting all hell to break loose, and they are afraid to announce the decision before the election. It appears that an anticipatory disbanding of the police department is the trade-off for Darren Wilson’s anticipated non-indictment next week.

I hope I am wrong.


The shot that killed #MikeBrown entered the top of his head UPDATED

August 18, 2014

Monday, August 18, 2014

Good morning:

The results of the independent autopsy arranged for the Brown family by Benjamin Crump have been announced.

Dr. Michael Baden, 80, conducted the autopsy, assisted by Professor Shawn Parcells. Dr. Baden is a famous board certified forensic pathologist who has conducted more than 20,000 autopsies.

Dr. Baden reported that Mike Brown was shot at least 6 times, including twice in the head. He also was shot multiple times in the right arm with one shot causing five wounds by entering, exiting and reentering the body.

With the exception of the fatal shot that entered through the top of his head and the entry wound in the inner part of his forearm below the elbow, the rest of the wounds are located in the front part of the body.

Depending on the position of his right forearm, Professor Parcells said the shot could have come from behind MB as he was walking or running away from the police vehicle or it could have come as he was raising his hands or it could have been a defensive wound.

The fatal shot entered the top of MB’s head, killing him. The other bullet entered through the forehead above his right eye, exited immediately below it after shattering it, reentered his face immediately below the eye, exited though his jaw line and reentered his body in the area where his collar bone is located. These two shots were the last shots fired. They were not fired from close range since no gunshot residue, stippling or starring was detected.

He suffered the two head wounds where his body was found because they would have dropped him to the ground and he would have lost consciousness immediately fro the shot to the top of his head.

That location has variously been reported as 33 to 35 feet from the officer’s parked patrol vehicle.

The autopsy results are described as “preliminary” because they are based on an examination of Mike Brown’s body at the funeral home. His clothes and police investigation reports, including witness statements, were not available.

Regarding the fatal wound to the top of Mike Brown’s head, Dr. Baden said,

This one here looks like his head was bent downward. It can be because he’s giving up or because he is charging forward at the officer.

This shooting still looks like an execution to me, given the distance of Brown’s body from the patrol vehicle. The results rule out a theory that the officer was in close proximity to Brown when he fired the two shots that struck him in the head.

I need additional information to definitively confirm or deny my opinion.

Meanwhile, the peaceful protest turned violent after sundown causing the governor to call in the National Guard.

Officer Darren Wilson should be charged with first degree murder for executing #MikeBrown

August 16, 2014

Saturday, August 16, 2014

Good afternoon:

Officer Darren Wilson should be charged with first degree murder for executing Mike Brown.

We need to focus our attention on what happened before the officer pulled out his gun in order to determine what, if any, crime he committed.

According to Brown’s friend, Dorian Johnson, the officer suddenly backed up positioning his vehicle so that it was parked perpendicular to the curb and directly in front of them blocking their way.

This was an unexpected and unnecessarily aggressive response by the officer to a jaywalking situation in which the two young men did not respond quickly enough when he ordered them to stop walking in the street. I am not aware of any evidence that there was any vehicular traffic on the street when he ordered them to the sidewalk.

This was the officer’s first mistake.

The vehicle was so close to the two young men that the officer struck both of them with his door when he opened it to get out. This was his second mistake.

Mike Brown reacted by pushing the door back and the upper part of the frame apparently hit the officer in the face as he was attempting to get out of the vehicle.

Brown’s reaction may have been nothing more than an instinctive defensive reaction with his hands to the door hitting his lower body. Doors are curved inward toward the top and the officer’s head would have come in contact with the frame as he turned his body and leaned forward to get out of his vehicle and stand up.

We do not know how much force Brown applied to the door, but I am not aware of any claim by police officials that the officer is claiming that Brown was attempting to prevent the officer from getting out of his vehicle. They do claim that the officer sustained a bump on his face, which is consistent with an instinctive defensive reaction by Brown to being struck by the door.

The officer reacted by pulling out his gun, which was a grossly inappropriate reaction to a situation he created by his sudden and unexpected use of his vehicle to stop the two young men.

If I were a black male in Mike Brown’s situation, given common knowledge in the black community that white cops regularly harass and kill young black males all over this country with little or no justification because they hate blacks and can get away it, I would have assumed the officer intended to kill me and I would have attempted to take the gun away from him.

Brown reached through the open window grabbing the officer’s arm and I believe that he acted reasonably in self-defense. That is, he reasonably believed he was in imminent danger of being killed or seriously injured.

We know that he was in imminent danger of being killed or seriously injured because the officer killed him.

Brown did not get control of the gun.

The gun went off wounding Brown during the struggle precipitated by the officer’s conduct. This shot may or may not have been intentional.

Brown and Dorian Johnson fled. The officer got out of his vehicle and shot at Brown hitting him in the back.

This shot was intentional, unnecessary and unjustifiable.

Brown stopped, raised his hands and surrendered.

The officer fired more shots, hitting Brown and killing him.

These shots were intentional, premeditated, unnecessary and unjustifiable.

The officer, whose unexpected and unreasonable use of his vehicle precipitated the incident, executed Brown and he should be charged with first degree murder.

Finally, as I wrote yesterday, the strong-arm robbery in the convenience store involving the Swisher Sweet cigarillos is not relevant because Wilson contacted the two young men for walking in the street and he did not suspect them of being involved in the robbery.

The racist right-wing-hate-machine fails to comprehend that, even if Wilson had known about the robbery, he would not have been justified in executing Brown.

Why?

Because Brown was unarmed and had surrendered.
