Months after the shooting death of street thug Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, it appears blood evidence is now a major development in the ongoing investigation.
Angela Whitman, a resident of Ferguson, spoke with outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder in August. At the time, Holder’s Justice Department had launched a civil rights investigation into officer Darren Wilson’s motives, in an effort to stir up racial tensions.
Whitman said that if the investigation goes Officer Wilson’s way, St. Louis was “going to burn” thanks to the rioters.
As more evidence comes out to verify Wilson’s claim that he feared for his life and acted in self defense, it is becoming clear that no civil rights case will be officially filed. Why? Because, as the left-wing New York Times found out, Brown’s blood was on the gun, as well as on the interior door panel and on Officer Wilson’s uniform.
WASHINGTON — The police officer who fatally shot Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., two months ago has told investigators that he was pinned in his vehicle and in fear for his life as he struggled over his gun with Mr. Brown, according to government officials briefed on the federal civil rights investigation into the matter.
The officer, Darren Wilson, has told the authorities that during the scuffle, Mr. Brown reached for the gun. It was fired twice in the car, according to forensics tests performed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The first bullet struck Mr. Brown in the arm; the second bullet missed.
The forensics tests showed Mr. Brown’s blood on the gun, as well as on the interior door panel and on Officer Wilson’s uniform. Officer Wilson told the authorities that Mr. Brown had punched and scratched him repeatedly, leaving swelling on his face and cuts on his neck.
See what happened here? The evidence didn’t fit the assumption that President Barack Obama and Holder had about Officer Wilson’s guilt. And now that the evidence is becoming overwhelming, this case will be dropped.
Now, comes the threat of riots. And the Black Panthers have already promised it will happen:
Malik Zulu Shabazz, former head of the New Black Panther Party, is demanding a rebellion against the government if Police Officer Darren Wilson is not indicted by a grand jury for allegedly murdering Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO.
While Shabazz allowed that he would not specifically call for violence, he also refused to condemn it. “The authority of the white man and white America is illegitimate,” he said. “You have been killing us for 400 years.”
It seems like far too many people were quick to blame a police officer, as it fit so perfectly into the media narrative about police brutality. But now the facts are coming out, and the resulting damage will only escalate.
