County: Michael Brown Shot From Front, Had Marijuana in System

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.

Dr. Michael Baden: “No Evidence of a Struggle’ on Michael Brown’s Body

Dr. Michael Baden: “No Evidence of a Struggle’ on Michael Brown’s Body

Famed pathologist Dr. Michael Baden said there was “no evidence of a struggle” on Michael Brown’s body. He conducted a private autopsy on the family’s behalf.  He said six bullets fired by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson struck the teen.

Dr. Baden also said the unarmed teen could have survived all of the bullet wounds except the “one to the top of the head.”

This comes as family attorney Daryl Parks says there is enough evidence for Darren Wilson to be charged in the teen’s death.

Separately, Buzzfeed reports that the White House had no knowledge that the National Guard was being deployed to Ferguson.

Autopsy: Michael Brown Was Shot 6 Times by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson

Report: Michae Brown Was Shot 6 Times by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson

BREAKING NEWS: The New York Times is reporting that Michael Brown was shot six times, twice in the head and four times in the right arm and torso — NOT AT CLOSE RANGE. He also appears to have a shot to the open palm by his thumb. An indepedent autopsy was performed by Dr. Michael Baden on the family’s behalf. One bullet entered the top of the skull. No bullets were fired into his back. That contradicts what Brown’s friend, Dorian Johnson, said.

One of the bullets entered the top of Mr. Brown’s skull, suggesting his head was bent forward when it struck him and caused a fatal injury, according to Dr. Michael M. Baden, the former chief medical examiner for the City of New York, who flew to Missouri on Sunday at the family’s request to conduct the separate autopsy. It was likely the last of bullets to hit him, he said.

Mr. Brown, 18, was also shot four times in the right arm, he said, adding that all the bullets were fired into his front.

The bullets did not appear to have been shot from very close range because no gunpowder was present on his body. However, that determination could change if it turns out that there is gunshot residue on Mr. Brown’s clothing, to which Dr. Baden did not have access. Source: NY Times

Michael Brown Named as Suspect in QuikTrip Robbery Before Shooting Death

SMOKESCREEN: Michael Brown, the unarmed black teen who was gunned by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson, was a suspect in robbery in an incident at QuikTrip. Michael Brown was with his friend, Dorian Johnson, during the alleged robbery. He was also named a suspect.

Dorian Johnson’s lawyer confirms that his client told FBI cigars were taken from store before the teen was killed.  They allegedly stole a $48.99 box of wisher Sweets cigars.

Where are the Ferguson PD Report #2014-12391 and St. Louis County Police Report #2014-43984? Sorry, but riddling Michael Brown’s body over a $48.99 box of cigars is a travesty.

About 9:25 p.m. July 14, deputies confronted Montgomery in Enterprise Park, in the 13000 block of Clovis Avenue, after smelling what they believed to be the odor of marijuana in the immediate area of the bench where he was sitting, according to sheriff’s Capt. Britta Steinbrenner. While he was in the process of being detained, Montgomery became “verbally confrontational and subsequently attempted to punch one of the deputies,” Steinbrenner said.
