Mary Case, the St. Louis County medical examiner, said Michael Brown was shot from the front. Case said the unarmed black teen was shot multiple times in the head and chest. She declined to comment any further, citing an ongoing investigation.
The Washington Post is reporting that the teen had marijuana in his system when he was shot and killed by Ferguson officer Darren Wilson. Um, sounds a little like Renisha McBride and Trayvon Martin.
Since some people are vilifying Michael Brown, how about Officer Wilson being held to the same standards? Was he drug tested? Do we know what his frame of mind was when he pumped six bullets into the teen?
It’s interesting that this “leak” came on the same morning Michael Brown’s family had a press conference. Clearly the authorities knew how many gunshots the teen sustained and what was in his system, but they waited until today to continue their “smear” campaign. In other words, since Michael Brown had just allegedly robbed a convenience store and was “high,” then he’s a madman who deserved to be killed. Kinda the same argument they implied in the death of Trayvon Martin and Renisha McBride.
