The Michael Brown shooting was tragic and it was avoidable. The violence that has occurred in Ferguson MO subsequent to the shooting is just ridiculous. Bordering on the insane is the outrage from the left. The eruption of idiocy from the twin volcanos known as the Rev. Tawana Sharpton and Crystal Mangum Jackson was entirely predictable but it is unfortunate to see the mother of Trayvon Martin make threatening and stupid statements:
While we fight injustice, we will also hold ourselves to an appropriate level of intelligent advocacy. If they refuse to hear us, we will make them feel us.
That is what one could call an oxymoron. It really is distressing to know neither Fulton nor Jackson nor Sharpton nor much of the population has any interest in waiting for and learning the facts.
Today we learn that Officer Darren Wilson suffered an orbital blowout fracture in his encounter with the “Gentle Giant” Michael Brown. It takes a very significant amount of force to cause such an injury. Darren Wilson took a mighty blow from Michael Brown in their altercation. We can expect that neither this injury nor the audio evidence nor the lies of Dorian Johnson will sway liberals’ already concreted notions of what happened.
What happened is clear and it is supported by the evidence. Michael Brown assaulted a store owner and stole a box of cigars from him. Dorian Johnson was with him. The two then walked down the middle of a street. They were told by Officer Darren Wilson to get on the sidewalk. Wilson started to drive away and the realized Brown matched the description of a robbery suspect and backed up. As he tried to exit his vehicle he was twice puchsed back into the vehicle and smashed in the face by Michael Brown. During the scuffle Wilson’s weapon discharged. Brown and Johnson then started to flee. Wilson told them to stop. Brown then stopped and turned around and began rushing Wilson, head down, likely to again slam Wilson. At that point Wilson opened fire and Brown fell a few feet from Wilson.
That’s what happened, but let me tell you what Sybrina Fulton, Tawana Sharpton and Crystal Mangum Jackson and the left believe. They believe that:
– Michael Brown had a right to assault the store owner.
– Michael Brown had a right to steal the cigars
– Michael Brown had a right to walk in the middle of the street.
– Michael Brown had a right to shove a police officer.
– Michael Brown had a right to smash Wilson’s face in.
– Michael Brown had a right to again body slam Wilson.
– Officer Darren Wilson had no right to demand that Brown and Johnson walk on the sidewalk and not in traffic.
– Wilson had no right to investigate the robbery.
– Wilson had no right to question Brown or Johnson.
– Wilson had no right to defend himself.
– Wilson should have allowed Brown to take Wilson’s weapon.
That’s what they believe and no amount of facts are going to rain on their parade. If you don’t believe the same, you’re a racist. Ironically, the very people so sensitive to lynching want nothing less than the lynching of Darren Wilson. To top this off, Barack Obama is sending Eric Holder to Ferguson with a can of gas for the bonfire. Holder engineered the pardons of the FALN terrorists and Marc Rich, sent 2000 automatic weapons to drug cartels in Mexico, lied to Congress and can’t find a smidgen of corruption in the IRS.
Godspeed, Ferguson. You’re in the best of hands.
Some have made a comparison between this incident and the Zimmerman/Martin incident. It’s not close. This is a lot worse.
A St. Louis radio station is reporting that Michael Brown’s friend Dorian Johnson is recanting his story and now admits that he and Brown assaulted Officer Darren Wilson and tried to take Wilson’s weapon. This is unconfirmed as of yet.
