Ferguson grand jury papers full of inconsistencies
This past mass confusion by many that unfortunately ended up with the only true fact is that a teenager is dead and life as they knew it for his family and a police officer that has been incorrectly played out in the media and unfortunately the internet, my reader in particular with mixed reviews, has changed forever.
98% of those jumping on the band wagon were not there or even in the state, a few not even in the country.
However, have the police around the world guilty by not even being involved.
Out of the thousands of pages in the final report none can back up the one statement that the youth was shot in the back or even had his hands up however, this seems to not matter to you the public?
Before the facts were disclosed, rioters, most out of Towner’s, destroyed the livelihood of thousands of innocent small business owners, the same people able to put the unemployed back to work.
Because of this when another youth buys a pellet gun, aims it at a police offices and is shot, what happened next?
Hundreds of people grabbed signs and are laying on the ground condemning the police for not knowing that it was not a real lethal weapon?
You pull a gun on me, real or fake, you better be hoping that it is real and be pulling the trigger at the same time!
FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Some witnesses said Michael Brown had been shot in the back. Another said he was face-down on the ground when Officer Darren Wilson “finished him off.” Still others acknowledged changing their stories to fit published details about the autopsy or admitted that they did not see the shooting at all.
An Associated Press review of thousands of pages of grand jury documents reveals numerous examples of statements made during the shooting investigation that were inconsistent, fabricated or provably wrong. For one, the autopsies ultimately showed Brown was not struck by any bullets in his back.
Prosecutors exposed these inconsistencies before the jurors, which likely influenced their decision not to indict Wilson in Brown’s death.
Bob McCulloch, the St. Louis County prosecutor, said the grand jury had to weigh testimony that conflicted with physical evidence and conflicting statements by witnesses as it decided whether Wilson should face charges.
“Many witnesses to the shooting of Michael Brown made statements inconsistent with other statements they made and also conflicting with the physical evidence. Some were completely refuted by the physical evidence,” McCulloch said.
A friend of Brown’s, told a federal investigator that he heard the first gunshot, looked out his window and saw an officer with a gun drawn and Brown “on his knees with his hands in the air.” He added: “I seen him shoot him in the head.”
But when later pressed by the investigator, the friend said he had not seen the actual shooting because he was walking down the stairs at the time and instead had heard details from someone in the apartment complex.
“What you are saying you saw isn’t forensically possible based on the evidence,” the investigator told the friend.
Shortly after that, the friend asked if he could leave.
“I ain’t feeling comfortable,” he said.
