View Diary: Why Ferguson Shooting is Officer Darren Wilson’s Fault (11 comments)

    Every bit of evidence is potentially tainted by the Ferguson PD.  The body of Mike Brown was removed in a black SUV of unknown provenance. No crime scene team responded that I can see, and we have no idea if the officer Darrel Wilson was made to give a statement before the body was examined, or if photos were taken of his supposed injuries, or when supposed injuries occurred.  One wag already said, "examine Wilson's partner's hands, because they probably are the ones who gave him a  black eye, so he could have an alibi"  And for all we know that's what happened.  Hell, no one even reached over to see if Mike still and a pulse after he was shot.  The whole thing reeks to high heaven and back of police malfeasance, impropriety and bias.

    Mike Brown's fingerprints and DNA could be on the Titanic by now, given the lack of proof we have seen about a proper chain of evidence, and given the demeanor of the #fegruson PD chief who acted to quickly smear the victim's name.  McCoullough's DA office seems to be the source of the leak that gasp, a teenage boy like to occasionally smoke weed.  So what little "advantage' their "side" ( i hate these terms) may have gained in a PR war, they have signaled their true colors already and we'd be fools to expect fair play from either.    

    Those who search for justice here are right to demand facts, answers, transparency.  It's just that they are clamoring for the barn door's disposition after the proverbial horse has left the stable.  

    •  speaking of Wilson's partner, did he have one? (0+ / 0-)

      if so who is it? and who were the two officers seen in one of the cell phone videos?  

      We are all pupils in the eyes of God.

      •  good question. no one is answering at fergusonPD (2+ / 0-)

        I think this is likely to be the tip of an iceberg.  If you have not yet seen the "good" shooting of a man who stole two soft drink cans and a donut by the St Louis PD, go watch it now, if you think you can stand it.  

        This is a cop culture and shoot your gun culture run amok. Teenage school slaughterers share too much in common with ANYONE who wants to carry a gun, sometimes I fear.  

        To the kid with a hammer, the whole world looks like a nail is the thought that comes to mind.
