Ferguson Case Another Instance of What the Jurassic Media Won’t Tell You… Lies by Omission

Here’s what the race-baiters and liberal news media won’t tell you about the Ferguson, Mo. shooting of a young black man. From Fox News:

Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, Mo., police officer whose fatal shooting of Michael Brown touched off more than a week of demonstrations, suffered severe facial injuries including a bone fracture near one eye and was nearly beaten unconscious by Brown moments before firing his gun, a source close to the department’s top brass told FoxNews.com.

“The Assistant (Police) Chief took him to the hospital, his face all swollen on one side,” said the insider. “He was beaten very severely.”

According to the well-placed source, Wilson was coming off another case in the neighborhood on Aug. 9 when he ordered Michael Brown and his friend Dorain Johnson to stop walking in the middle of the road because they were obstructing traffic. However, the confrontation quickly escalated into physical violence, the source said.

“They ignored him and the officer started to get out of the car to tell them to move,” the source said. “They shoved him right back in, that’s when Michael Brown leans in and starts beating Officer Wilson in the head and the face.”

The precise extent of Wilson’s injuries are unclear. The source told FoxNews.com on Wednesday that the officer had sustained a fractured eye socket in the incident, and repeated that assertion early Friday morning, in response to a conflicting report on the severity of the injuries.

I suppose that the continued riots must be good for the news ratings… Shameful!  Some things never change… Brutus


  1. As of 8/22, most of the mainstream media still refuses to mention Brown assaulting Officer Wilson! Only ‘Talk Radio’ and a scant few News Outlets dare to mention it… and when they do, they tip-toe around it. One thing can be said though… Once the full story broke, it dissolved almost like the Zimmerman Case. The ‘Race Hustler’s’ like Sharpton and Jackson quickly left town leaving just the looters behind. I suppose that no further publicity for the likes of these two were to be had as the full scope of a poor kid with a history of felony arrests, a delinquent mother, and a convict father, all came into view. In a way I pity him (Brown). However, the Law is still the Law… but I digress. I still wonder why Sharpton and Jackson have not been arrested for inciting mob violence (be it ever so subtly)? It happens wherever they go.

  2. The MSM is as bad as the regime, lying or obfuscating the truth. The founders put the 1st Amendment in the Constitution for a reason.
    Like Trey Gowdy said talking to the press about Benghazi,”has the media provided sufficient oversight?”.

  3. Peter,
    Your comments cause me to question your assertion that you are “a conservative”. Most of us rarely feel the need to make such an assertion when commenting on a well known conservative website like Teri’s. We simply make our comments and let the reader make their own decision about our political position. Your calls for patience and cautions against bias are commendable but your own comments lead me to believe that you have already made your own judgments in this matter, as we all have. It is clear that you believe that the “race-baiter’s (your words, not mine)” version of these events is just as likely to be accurate as the police version. I personally find that outcome highly unlikely because it is so at odds with my own personal experience regarding these matters.

  4. Peter is correct when he says that the reports of Officer Wilson’s injuries are based on anonymous reports, and have not been confirmed. As I have mentioned previously, the officer’s medical report will not be released now because the case is before a grand jury. The facts will come out in due time. Based on the video tape of Michael Brown’s behavior in the convenience market, I certainly won’t be surprised if the report that he shoved the officer back in his car, punched him and went for his gun is 100% accurate. It won’t be hard to prove. If the gun did in fact go off in the car, there will be powder residue and a shell casing. There will be DNA. I would be in favor of the release of the officer’s medical records from his hospitalization in this matter, but I don’t think that will happen now.

    Unfortunately, this law enforcement matter was hijacked by the race baiters like the disgusting Al Sharpton, which is why it has become the subject of so much conjecture and opinion before the facts are known. Sharpton et. al., which sadly includes Gov. Nixon, who appears to be as dumb as box of rocks, started the whole “conjecture”, referring to the officer as a “murderer,” which is ridiculous under any scenario. The narrative that they promoted of the racist cop shooting the innocent gentle giant in cold blood was destroyed by the convenience market video tape. So, time will tell. I would like to see Attorney General Eric Holder, an embarrassment to his office and a proud racialist who proclaims himself an “activist,” put his money where his mouth is on the issue of race. We’re “cowards” on that issue he says. OK, how about addressing the issue of black crime? Not the tepid lip service he and his jackass boss pay to the issue, but really acknowledging that if we took out black crime, the U.S. would have one of the lowest crime rates in the world.

    Aside: It’s interesting that Rob invokes John Adams statement about facts being stubborn things, which I believe was something Mr. Adams said when he was defending the British soldiers in the Boston Massacre. The law is reason free from passion, as Aristotle said.

  5. The simple fact that Eric Holder adamantly refuses to adress the black crime issue says much. As adressed in the Fourteenth Amendment, we are all subject to equal protection under the law. Conversly, we are also subject to equal punishment and restraint.

  6. I don’t thing that those of us who have a presumption in favor of law enforcement “hate” anyone. Nor do I think that we “grasp at straws” when we look at that convenience store tape and think “MMM, this guy doesn’t look very law abiding to me.” I’ve never stolen anything from a store, or threatened a clerk, and I’m pretty sure you haven’t either. Fortunately most people don’t behave that way.

    I don’t know about you, Peter, but if a cop tells me to get out of the street, I get my ass out of the street pronto, and say “I’m sorry, Officer.” That’s just common sense. Of course, if a person is high on pot, which has been confirmed by the 3 autopsies of Michael Brown, he may not be rational.

  7. Thanks Teri (I think)… I feel a bit vindicated here. The fatal wounds on the victim are pretty telling, and to me, indicate a struggle for the officer’s weapon. Police officers are generally good marksmen, unless there are mitigating factors. A struggle would be one for certain. But as you said, “it’s before a grand jury,” which is why the Officer’s injuries are not being disclosed. I hardly think he hit his head on the door while entering his Squad Car. The presence of pot in Brown’s system says quite a bit about “his” presence of mind, which is hardly an excuse. However, it would explain a few things (remember Rodney King?).
