MICHAEL BROWN WAS MURDERED BY THE FERGUSON POLICE OFFICER.
First of all that story the Chief of Police gave was so much bullshit it made me sick to call myself a Police Officer.
The cop said Brown shoved him back in his car as he tried to exit, Brown got in the car and they were struggling for his gun in the car. The cop did not say whether or not he already had his gun in his hand before Brown supposedly got in the car with him. It is damn hard for a cop to pull his gun from his holster seated in his Police car by himself, let alone supposedly fighting to keep someone from doing it.
Second, I don’t know one cop who gets in his car with his Police hat or cap on his head because it will always get knocked off. Someone please tell me how Browns baseball cap wound up on the ground beside his body if he got in the Police car head first, fought and assaulted the cop in the driver seat with the car door, steering wheel, computer, gun rack and maybe the plexiglass prisoner separator to make the space even smaller that his baseball cap did not fall off or get knocked off in the supposed struggle for the Officers gun.
Third the Officer had a duty to take several other measures before using deadly force, especially in light of the fact the supposed fight in the car was over, meaning the threat to the Police Officer was over. The Officer if he was still in fear of his life or safety could have stayed in the car locked the door, called for help and waited. He could have stayed in the car, driven away while calling for help and then came back.. He could have gotten around to the other side of his police car using it to separate himself from Brown who was running away while he waited for assistance. Did he have mace or a taser to use if he decided to chase Brown down??
Since he shot him from 30-35 feet away, pretty much says he was not chasing him. There is no such crime as felony running from the Police. Certainly walking in the street does not carry a sentence of Murder. Even if Brown cussed the Officer out you can disturb the Peace of the Police.
When whatever happened at the Police car was over, it was over. Do not get twisted over the Police accounts of the supposed assault and attempt to take the Officers gun in the car. That is a totally separate incident from Brown being 35 feet from the car. It has nothing to do with Brown being 35 feet from the car other than he ran from that spot.
After Brown separated from the Officer at the car, the Officer can not claim he was in fear of his life or personal safety or the safety of someone else. His story that Brown was trying to take his gun proves he knew that Brown did not have a gun of his own. Look up the Federal court case of Tennessee vs. Garner. That case is the basis for all Police Officer Use of Force. How do I know? I am a Federally Certified Instructor for Use of Force.
Browns friend said the Officer reached out the window, choked him and threatened to shoot him. The Officer then fired one shot from inside the car striking Brown on the right side and they took off running. Brown was then shot in the back and he stopped running, turned around and according to numerous witnesses had his hands up and was about to go to the ground when he was shot in the face and body where he fell and died.
The Autopsy is complete. WHY HAVENT THE POLICE RELEASED THE RESULTS. IF THERE IS AN ENTRY WOUND IN BROWNS BACK AND A CLOSE ENTRY WOUND TO THE RIGHT SIDE OF HIS BODY IT PROVES BROWNS FRIENDS ACCOUNT OF THE STORY AS WELL AS SEVERAL OF THE EYE WITNESSES.
THERE IS NO ACCOUNT OF WHAT HAPPENED BY THE POLICE AFTER THE FIGHT IN THE CAR. THE CHIEF OF ST. LOUIS COUNTY, HIS STORY LEFT ALL THAT OUT, BECAUSE THE OFFICER HAS NO PLAUSIBLE REASONABLE STORY TO TELL. HE FREAKED OUT, LOST HIS TEMPER AND COMPOSURE AND MURDERED MR. BROWN.

Looking at Antonio French’s twitter videos & I can’t tell if I’m looking at the mid-west of America or the Middle-East….. 😔 God Help Us
