Report: Michael Brown’s Blood Found on Officer Darren Wilson’s Gun, Uniform

Report: Michael Brown’s Blood Found on Officer Darren Wilson’s Gun, Uniform

The New York Times reports that Michael Brown’s blood was found on Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson’s gun and in his cruiser. This proves that the unarmed teen and the officer were in close promixity to each other in the moments leading up to his shooting death.

The police officer who fatally shot Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., two months ago has told investigators that he was pinned in his vehicle and in fear for his life as he struggled over his gun with Mr. Brown, according to government officials briefed on the federal civil rights investigation into the matter.

The officer, Darren Wilson, has told the authorities that during the scuffle, Mr. Brown reached for the gun. It was fired twice in the car, according to forensics tests performed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The first bullet struck Mr. Brown in the arm; the second bullet missed.

The forensics tests showed Mr. Brown’s blood on the gun, as well as on the interior door panel and on Officer Wilson’s uniform. Officer Wilson told the authorities that Mr. Brown had punched and scratched him repeatedly, leaving swelling on his face and cuts on his neck.

Officer Wilson’s account of what happened contradicts witnesses statements, including that of the Dorian Johnson, who was with Michael Brown during the encounter.  Source: NY Times

The forensics clearly show that Michael Brown and Darren Wilson were in close proximity to each other at some point during the encounter, but why didn’t the officer file an incident report and why was there no dashcam in the vehicle? Had there been a dashcam, we would have a clear account of what really transpired between the two men.

Further, we were able to see autopsy pictures of the wounds on Michael Brown’s body, why haven’t we seen the wounds Officer Wilson claims he sustained from the alleged beatdown he got from the teen? Why was he in such fear for his life that he came out of the vehicle and pursued the teen after he tried to flee the scene? Don’t get me wrong, if Michael Brown assaulted the police officer, then he was wrong. Very wrong. But we have no clear answers to what really happened. Just a lot of he-said, he-said, she-said.
