    County autopsy: Michael Brown shot 6 times from front, had marijuana in system

    An unarmed black teenager had marijuana in his system when he was fatally shot six times by a white police officer, two people familiar with the official county autopsy of Michael Brown said Monday.

    The autopsy by St. Louis County chief medical examiner Mary Case, released to state prosecutors late Friday, found that Brown, 18, had six gunshot wounds to the head and chest and was shot from the front, the people said. They spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of Brown’s death, which has triggered violent protests in this St. Louis suburb that continued Sunday night.


    National Guard called into Ferguson, Missouri

    Missouri's governor is lifting a neighborhood curfew but calling in the National Guard to help restore order in a St. Louis suburb where a police officer's fatal shooting of an unarmed 18-year-old has sparked heated protests.

    Gov. Jay Nixon called up the troops early Monday following an overnight clash between police and what he called "a violent criminal element intent upon terrorizing the community."

    Support grows for officer who shot Ferguson teen Michael Brown

    While the nation is watching and hearing the angry protests in support of black shooting victim Michael Brown, a different kind of support is being voiced for the white police officer who fatally shot the unarmed teenager.

    In a first account of its kind, a caller to Radio America’s “The Dana Show,” who identified herself only as Josie, told listeners a detailed account of Officer Darren Wilson’s side. A source with detailed knowledge of the investigation says it accurately matched what the officer has told investigators.

    “He said all of a sudden, he just started to bum rush him,” she said. “He just started coming at him full speed, and so he just started shooting and he just kept coming.”


    Different side of the story: Investigator confirms Michael Brown rushed officer before he was shot

    FERGUSON, Mo. (CNN) - The Ferguson police officer who killed Michael Brown says the teenager rushed at him full speed in the moments before the shooting, according to an account phoned in to a St. Louis radio station and confirmed as accurate by a source with detailed knowledge of the investigation.

    RAW COVERAGE: Ferguson, Missouri Round Five


    Jake Tapper Goes Off on Police Reaction in Ferguson: ‘This Doesn’t Make Any Sense!’

    Just after 10 p.m. local time in Ferguson, Missouri Monday night, CNN’s Jake Tapper asked his cameraman to take a step back and zoom out so he could highlight what he clearly thought was the absurdity of the situation on the ground. With the National Guard and police sent in to disperse what appeared to be almost entirely peaceful protesters, an incensed Tapper told viewers what was really going on here:

    Ferguson protesters: The peaceful, the elders, the looters, and the ‘militants’

    On one corner of a battered stretch of West Florissant Avenue, the epicenter of ongoing protests, young men pull dark scarves up over their mouths and lob molotov cocktails at police from behind makeshift barricades built of bricks and wood planks. They call the gasoline-filled bottles “poor man’s bombs.”

    The young men yell expletives and, with a rebel’s bravado, speak about securing justice for Michael Brown, the black teen fatally shot Aug. 9 by a white police officer, “by any means necessary.”


    Michael Brown had no criminal background

    An 18-year-old shot and killed near a Ferguson apartment complex Saturday afternoon had no criminal record, according to the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney's office.


    Differing reports on overnight arrests in Ferguson

    Dozens of arrests were made in Ferguson overnight, most of them for failure to disperse, according to two different law enforcement groups. However, the total number of arrests differs between the groups.

    Gov. Nixon has another message for Missouri about the situation in Ferguson

    he crisis in Ferguson has the attention of the nation focused on a suburb of St. Louis. Missouri Governor Jay Nixon is weighing in on the situation again. He called in the National Guard after Sunday night’s protests. Now, he is calling for peace, rule of law and a vigorous prosecution.

    This is a transcript from Missouri Governor Nixon to the media:

    “Ten days ago, a police officer shot and killed Michael Brown, in broad daylight. Since then, the world has watched a community become engulfed in grief, anger, fear and at times violence.

    For a family mourning the loss of a son, it has been a profound personal tragedy. For Ferguson and our entire nation, it has ripped open old wounds that have festered for generations, and exposed difficult issues that communities across our country must still resolve.


    Timeline: Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Mo.


    Blue porch lights, Darren Wilson T-shirts part of growing support for Ferguson officer

    Porch lights — many of them illuminating blue — are being left on in St. Louis and across the country in a show of support for the Missouri police officer who shot and killed an unarmed young man 10 days ago.


    Ferguson officer's account of Michael Brown shooting: 'He just kept coming'

    Darren Wilson, the 28-year-old police officer who killed an unarmed Ferguson teenager with a shot to the head, has so far said nothing publicly about the incident.

    Wilson and his girlfriend, Barbara Spradling, left their home in Crestwood, a predominantly white neighbourhood some 18 miles from Ferguson, before he was named last week in connection with the shooting of Michael Brown.

    But before they left, Spradling gave an account of the shooting to a friend, who says it is markedly different from the narrative espoused by Brown’s family and their supporters.


    What To Expect at Wednesday's Michael Brown Grand Jury

    On Wednesday, a grand jury will begin hearing evidence in the investigation of Michael Brown's shooting. The proceeding will ultimately determine whether Officer Darren Wilson — who, according to one autopsy report, shot Brown six times, including two shots to the head — will face criminal charges.

    A grand jury is unlike a regular jury. Here's how it works and what we might expect when this one convenes.

    Behind the scenes with police tactical team



    Revealed: Officer Darren Wilson won 'Outstanding Police Work' commendation for overpowering suspect in car six months before shooting dead Michael Brown

    The Ferguson police officer who shot and killed unarmed teenager, Michael Brown, received a commendation for overpowering a suspect in a struggle in his car just six months earlier, MailOnline can reveal.

    Officer Darren Wilson, 28, received the commendation for 'Outstanding Police Work,' at a ceremony in the Missouri town’s City Hall on February 11 this year.

    Calling Wilson forward to receive his award, Ferguson police Chief Thomas Jackson praised the officer for 'Outstanding police work while investigating a suspicious vehicle call out.'

    Mike Brown protests in Ferguson

    Rains will not dampen the protests for slain teen Michael Brown. Protesters are marching up and down West Florissant in Ferguson calling for justice.


    ‘Time To Kill A Cop': Ferguson Protesters Throw Urine, Bottles At Police

    Police and protesters in Ferguson were finally able to share the streets again at night, putting aside for at least a few hours some of the hostility that had filled those hours with tear gas and smoke.

    The St. Louis suburb still had plenty of lively protest Tuesday over the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown. And tensions rose briefly when someone hurled a bottle at officers.


    McCulloch talks grand jury proceedings regarding Ferguson police shooting

    St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch spoke to members of the media Wednesday morning about the grand jury case involving the Ferguson police shooting.

    McCulloch said he will begin presenting evidence to the grand jury on Wednesday in the case of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, who shot and killed Michael Brown, who was unarmed at the time. McCulloch said he does not expect the case to be resolved before mid-October. He said he wants every piece of paper, photograph and piece of evidence available to the jury before they make a decision.


    McCulloch pens response to group demanding his ouster from Brown case

    The "Justice For Michael Brown Leadership Coalition" obtained 70,000 signatures calling for the removal of St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch from the Michael Brown case.

    Leaders of that group brought the signatures to Clayton Thursday morning.

    McCulloch has said repeatedly he has no plans on stepping down, forcing Governor Nixon to either appoint a special prosecutor or leave McCulloch at the helm.


    Why did the Michael Brown shooting happen here?

    Long before the nation rested its collective conscience on the protests along West Florissant Avenue, there was a different mobilization going on.

    Hundreds of people were moving out of their urban neighborhoods to this north St. Louis County suburb seeking a safe and affordable place to live.

    They found it in an isolated corner of Ferguson that was flush with sprawling apartment complexes. Far from Ferguson’s leafy residential streets and quaint downtown, many people didn’t even know the apartments were part of the city until young Michael Brown was shot and killed there Aug. 9.

    Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon withdraws National Guard from Ferguson, as clashes subside

    Gov. Jay Nixon ordered the Missouri National Guard to begin withdrawing from this St. Louis suburb Thursday, the clearest sign yet that the violent clashes between police and residents may be subsiding after nearly two weeks of civil unrest.


    What Michael Brown's autopsy tells us

    Michael Brown, Eric Garner and John Crawford all have one thing in common: It's not just that they were unarmed men of color killed by police officers -- it's that the responsibility to investigate each of their deaths fell to a medical examiner.

    We medical examiners investigate all homicides and violent deaths, and it is also part of our legal duty to investigate any death of a person under the control of, or in the custody of, a law enforcement agent.

    Among Michael Brown's neighbors, anger over a future lost

    To understand Michael Brown and why his shooting has unleashed such anger here, go to the place where he lived and died.

    Canfield Green Apartments, a worn complex of brick buildings surrounded by trees and hills, has become a rallying point for protesters. They congregate at its center, Canfield Drive, the two-lane street where Brown, a black 18-year-old, died Aug. 9, shot multiple times by a white police officer.

    There’s Very Little in the Michael Brown Shooting Incident Report

    Nearly two weeks after Michael Brown’s death, a police report on the shooting has finally been made public. But the glaring lack of detail is likely to increase widespread criticism that the law-enforcement community is closing ranks around Darren Wilson, the officer who fatally shot Brown on Aug. 9.

    The Grand Jury In Michael Brown Shooting Case Is Mostly White

    The grand jury that began hearing evidence Wednesday in the case of the fatal shooting of unarmed, black teen Michael Brown is primarily white, according to the St. Louis Dispatch.

    There are three black people on the grand jury, one man and two women. The rest of the jury comprises six white men and three white women. The demographics of the jury roughly coincide with the racial makeup of St. Louis County itself, which is 68 percent white and 24 percent black. But race has already played a major role in this case, as it has garnered international attention and sparked conversation about racial discrimination and inequality prompting demonstrators to protest nationwide.


    What We Learned from an Independent Autopsy of Michael Brown

    An independent, preliminary autopsy performed on the body of Michael Brown shows that the 18-year-old was shot “at least six times,” according to Dr. Michael M. Baden, formerly the chief medical examiner for the City of New York, one of two experts who performed the autopsy.


    Ferguson Police Offense/Incident Report


    Ferguson Police Report Raises More Questions Than It Answers

    It’s been nearly two weeks since a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, shot and killed an unarmed teenager, but the police department has yet to offer a full account of the hazy circumstances surrounding Michael Brown’s death.

    An official incident report, which the American Civil Liberties Union obtained from police and released on Friday, answers none of the pressing questions that hang over the killing. If anything, it raises new ones.

    The two-page document is almost entirely blank. It includes the address, time of day and a handful of other bare-bones details, but does not include a description of the scene, quotes from eyewitnesses, names of the officers involved, or any other pieces of information normally found on such documents.

    Eyewitness to Michael Brown shooting recounts his friend’s death

    The last moments of Michael Brown’s life were filled with shock, fear and terror, says a witness who stood just feet away as a police officer shot and killed the unarmed teen.

    “I saw the barrel of the gun pointed at my friend,” said Dorian Johnson, 22. “Then I saw the fire come out of the barrel.”

    Johnson, in an exclusive interview with msnbc, said what began as an order by a police officer to ‘get the f— onto the sidewalk’ quickly escalated into a physical altercation and then, gunfire.


    The chief medical examiner of St. Louis County, who performed the first autopsy on Michael Brown after he was shot on Aug. 9, says that she is concerned by one of the men hired by the Brown family to conduct its own exam.

    “I can tell you absolutely that I find what Parcells does to be abysmal,” Dr. Mary Case told The Daily Caller when asked about Shawn Parcells, a Kansas-based forensic pathologist assistant. He has been accused in the past of fabricating his job title and of conducting autopsies without a license.


    County investigation: Michael Brown was shot from the front, had marijuana in his system

    Michael Brown was shot in the head and chest multiple times, according to Mary Case, the St. Louis County medical examiner.

    While Case declined to comment further, citing the ongoing investigation into Brown’s death, another person familiar with the county’s investigation told The Washington Post that Brown had between six and eight gunshot wounds and was shot from the front.

    "First and foremost, we have lived through this. The community stood with us. And we want to be a part of the community here and offer our advice and love," said Cephus Johnson, Grant's uncle.

I am way behind on the posts here, so if any of this is redundant, my apologies. I'm also sorry to post on my schedule which likely coincides with the live coverage of the sadness tonight. I have Tiffany's interviews transcribed, but it is far more lengthy and have not been evaluated in this fashion. Plus, I want to see if it's worth the time and effort to continue as things develop. So, with that, here it is.

    8/9/14 KMOV interview in street http://fox2now.com/2014/08/09/man-sh...tment-complex/

    My thoughts: First paragraph, odd word choices marked in bold. Seems to be overselling this, sounds more activist than witness. Refers to they and them as if Wilson represents a group. Second paragraph, guess we know why she sounded more activist and referred to police as a group. Watch the eyes, sounds like she’s repeating talking points she’s heard. Already, racial accusations just hours after the shooting gives pause to whether there is already an angle being played. Two shots after Mike ran, Dorian Johnson said several.

    8/11/14 MSNBC interview outside her apartment http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc/eyewitnes...oting-missouri

    My thoughts: Repeats compliant, says shot in chest (autopsy showed no chest shots, Johnson’s account also mentioned chest). Timeline issue, question how she could see the same thing (the tussle) as Tiffany given the account below and the one Tiffany gives? Also curious how she sees the EXACT same thing as Tiffany even though she’s on the passenger side of car.

    8/13/14 CNN Shared interview with Tiffany Mitchell https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=advkpZIuq2U

    On whether Piaget was able to get a better look than Tiffany...

    My thoughts: Tiffany drove up on the struggle, then pulled out her phone. Piaget says she saw this looking out the window when Tiffany called. Contradictory! Overselling “saw with my own eyes”. How did she see the conflict start?

    In response to question of whether Brown was in the car…

    My thoughts: Made sure to drive home outside of police car. Said shots when one is all I’ve seen or heard about.

    In response to Piaget ever seeing Brown reach for officer’s gun…

    My thoughts: She has difficulty seeing from her balcony, she’s on the opposite side of the car, but she knows he was outside of car (which she re-iterates again), and she can see the cop shot his gun carelessly through the glare of his front window? And how does one shoot a neighbor’s building on the opposite side of the car, especially when Johnson said the shot hit Mike? Has anyone seen anything about the bullet removal? The last line sounds like public service announcement.

    Adding to Tiffany’s comments wondering why Mike was killed while fleeing…

    My thoughts: Overkilled…sounds like she’s being coached to use certain terms for effect. Two, multiple, or several, depending on the witness.

    On how far Mike ran…

    My thoughts: By my estimation, it was a lot farther from Brown’s body to his hat in the street. Now I don’t expect her to be good with distance estimation, but look at Google Maps and estimate the distance.

    On whether the first shot was inside the car…

    Could you tell who fired that first shot…

    My thoughts: THIS is confusing. You are watching this incident and grabbing your purse and changing window views and yet you give nearly the same account of things as Tiffany? Not to mention the brick wall that blocks nearly half the distance between Mike’s body and where the hat was (hat indicates loosely where the struggle was. Repeats shots again. Johnson said one shot.

    Conclusion: I fail to see how this witness has any credibility and doubt seriously if she saw much, if any, of this. She sounds like she is passing along the story she was told. She’s watching the struggle supposedly as she’s talking on her phone, but fails to record the event, at least until it was over. I wonder if she did record it and it happened as the cop said and she deleted. There are way too many things in her statements that discredit her, she’s just not credible. Oh, and by the way, on CNN tonight, she indicated his arms never went up as the adjusted autopsy showed. Also curious why she never mentioned the cars that pulled up and were blocked that Mitchell and Johnson described in various different ways.

    Supporting information...

    Google maps - Search 2947 Canfield Dr. Ferguson, MO then click street view, gives great perspective when you click around to see the theater of the shooting. Note the brick wall that would block line of site to the middle half of the action area. The truck was approximately at the left driveway, the hat on the other side of the truck and Michaels body was lying straight out from the right brick column of the building. If you look at body, hat, approximate spot where the car would have been perpendicular to the street as Johnson described, you have a pretty good idea of the area this took place. The video in the last interview link gives some perspective to all this, as do some of the others that have been posted (like the oft posted video with the description that matches the cop's friend).

    Photo of the hat and SUV (not Wilson's, but one in video - look at angle of truck) - http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...ael-Brown.html

    Final thought - Tiffany Mitchell is a much better witness than her employee Piaget, but I think she too is just as impeachable as Piaget and Johnson. I'll also say that I am still not convinced of anything for certain as far as the shooting, I just fail to see the strength of the eyewitness testimony and that, plus a healthy dose of our social past, is the only thing everyone's angst with the cop is based on. Without it, the assumption of racial bias isn't enough to convict the cop, especially when not a single one of us have ever talked to the man or heard or seen him speak. Hard to judge people using clairvoyance.

    All IMO to cover that rabbit!

    Mr. Brown probably could not have been revived, and the time that his body lay in the street may ultimately have no bearing on the investigations into whether the shooting was justified. But local officials say that the image of Mr. Brown’s corpse in the open set the scene for what was to become a combustible worldwide story of police tactics and race in America, and left some of them asking why.


    For part of the time, Mr. Brown’s body lay in the open, allowing people to record it on their cellphones. A paramedic draped the body with a white sheet, but Mr. Brown’s feet remained exposed and blood could still be seen. The police later shielded the body with a low, six-panel orange partition typically used for car crashes.

    Experts in policing said there was no standard for how long a body should remain on a scene, but they expressed surprise at how Mr. Brown’s body had been allowed to remain in public view.


    According to police logs, the county police received a report of the shooting at 12:07, and their officers began arriving around 12:15

    Videos taken by bystanders show that in the first minutes after Mr. Brown’s death, officers quickly secured the area with yellow tape. In one video, several police cars were on the scene, and officers were standing close to their cars, a distance away from Mr. Brown’s body

    Around 12:10, a paramedic who happened to be nearby on another call approached Mr. Brown’s body, checked for a pulse, and observed the blood and “injuries incompatible with life,” said his supervisor, Chris Cebollero, the chief of emergency medical services at Christian Hospital. He estimated it was around 12:15 when the paramedic got a sheet from an ambulance and covered Mr. Brown.

    Michael Brady, a new eyewitness to the Michael Brown shooting, describes moments leading up to shooting. He gives those details to Lawrence O’Donnell.



    Young protesters vow to continue the fight in Ferguson

    The first photos of Michael Brown’s dead body lying in the middle of the street landed on Twitter within minutes after the 18-year-old was shot and killed, in broad daylight, at the hands of a police officer. The graphic images were still streaming down his timeline when Taurean Russell began making calls and organizing groups to the scene.

    By the time Russell’s crew arrived at Canfield Green Apartments more than four hours later, tensions among the crowd had boiled over after authorities left Brown’s body lying in the street for the entire afternoon. There were eight other community organizers with Russell protesting the slain teen’s death. Within two hours, their numbers swelled to over 100.

    A family friend of Wilson’s told The Washington Post that Wilson suffered a fractured eye socket. Ferguson police have said that Wilson’s face was injured and he needed medical treatment, but they did not go into any detail.
