New polling says the Democrats are in deep trouble with the voters. That is assumed to be good news for the ever so slightly less liberal alternative, the Republicans. The key will be getting the black vote out in force and what better way than a race riot? That looks like the plan. News reports coming from Ferguson Missouri indicate the cop will not be charged.
A report by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch this morning shows the official autopsy supports Ferguson officer Darren Wilson’s claim that Michael Brown struggled with him in his patrol vehicle, and that Brown did not have his hands up when he was shot Aug. 9.
A source tells the Post-Dispatch that Wilson testified to the Grand Jury that when he tried to get out of his SUV to talk to Brown and his friend Dorian Johnson about the theft of cigarillos, Brown slammed the door shut and punched him in the face.
Wilson pulled his weapon, and Brown grabbed it. At one point, the barrel was pointed at Wilson’s hip, then a shot was fired hitting Brown’s hand.
Wilson says he then chased Brown, who turned and ran toward him. Wilson said “stop,” then fired. Brown kept coming, so Wilson fired several more shots.
The Post-Dispatch also had three experts examine the official autopsy.
St. Louis medical examiner Dr. Michael Graham says the report supports claims that there was a “significant struggle” in Wilson’s patrol car, and Brown suffered a hand wound at “relatively short range.”
A forensic pathologist from San Francisco, Dr. Judy Melinek, says based on a bullet wound to Brown’s arm, Brown’s palms could not have been facing Wilson in the standard surrender position – with hands up and palms out – when he was shot, and Brown was falling forward or lunging when he was hit by the fatal shot to the top of his head.
Looks like what everyone probably knew it was all along, but that’s not the point. At least the family is ready to play their role in the effort.
Michael Brown’s aunt believes Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson will “feel the wrath of God’s vengeance” for the shooting death of the 18-year-old.
Speaking to MailOnline, Sheryl Davis believes Wilson committed murder. A grand jury is expected to decide by next month whether Wilson will be indicted in Brown’s death.
“It’s murder and they will feel and see the wrath of God’s vengeance come upon them in a mighty way, just as he promised all who do evil in his sight,” she said.
The shooting has sparked protests in Ferguson over the past two months as tensions are mounting following a New York Times report revealing new details about the incident.
The New York Times reported Friday evening that Wilson told authorities that Brown reached for the gun during a scuffle. The officer’s account to authorities did not explain why he fired at Brown multiple times after emerging from his vehicle, according to the newspaper.
The Times reported that the account of Wilson’s version of events came from government officials briefed on the federal civil rights investigation into the Aug. 9 shooting that sparked racial unrest and weeks of protests, some of which turned violent. Wilson is white and Brown black.
One protester warned what would happen if Wilson is set free.
“If there is not an indictment, excuse my French, all hell is going to break loose,” the protester told CNN.
The best thing that could happen here is for respectable blacks to take the side of the police on this issue. That will never happen, of course. The usual suspects will make sure of it, but funding the bomb throwers. These rent-a-savages will burst forth and make sure the drama unfolds as usual.
As I’ve pointed out before, the biggest obstacle to black people in America now is this stubborn racial solidarity that leads otherwise sensible people to defend savagery. Italians, Irish, Jews, Poles and other “ethnics” used WW2 as a chance to abandon their ethnic identity and become simply Americans. That often meant abandoning their old neighborhoods and their old neighbors. If you wanted to be a hood, the respectable Irish/Italians/Jews/etc wanted nothing to do with you.
Blacks have gone the other way and placed racial solidarity above all else. Defending ghetto culture may have been necessary in the 50’s, but it is self-defeating today. But, the ruling class needs the blacks to stay at the bottom of the social hierarchy so this is unlikely to change. Ben Carson is shunned by respectable white liberals, but Al Sharpton gets a prime time TV show.
