Officer Darren Wilson Says He and Michael Brown Struggled for Gun

According to officials close to the investigation, Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson told authorities that he and Michael Brown struggled over his service weapon before shοts were fired. TheMichael Brown2 New York Times reports that this information was revealed to officials with inside knowledge of the federal civil rights investigation.

Officer Wilson reportedly admits that shοts were fired while he was still inside the vehicle, but says that was during the period where Brown reached for his weapon. One bullet struck Michael Brown in the arm while the other missed the unarmed teen.

Also, according to Wilson, Brown  pυnched and scratched him, leaving red marks on his face and neck.

Up until now, there was no public account of Wilson’s testimony to those who are investigating the slaying. Wilson’s version of events also does not answer the question of why he got out of his car and shοt Brown six times.

Some witnesses at the scene say Brown had his hands in the air at the time he was shοt, although, according to the St. Louis Dispatch, one witness told the grand jury that Brown’s hands were not up high.

According to the witness, “Brown put his arms out to his sides but never raised his hands high” and “Brown staggered toward Wilson despite commands to stop.”

It has also been revealed that Brown’s bloοd was found on Wilson’s gun, car and uniform.

Officer Wilson testified before the grand jury in September. According to the Times report, the Justice Department will probably not press federal charges against Wilson because “to press charges, the Justice Department would need to clear a high bar, proving that Officer Wilson willfully violated Mr. Brown’s civil rights when he shot him.”

Given that police are allowed to act with lethal force when they feel that their lives are in danger, this new information may not bode well for those seeking justice for Michael Brown.

  4. The crux of your writing whilst appearing agreeable in the beginning, did not really sit well with me after some time. Someplace throughout the sentences you managed to make me a believer but just for a while. I still have got a problem with your jumps in logic and you would do nicely to help fill in all those gaps. In the event that you actually can accomplish that, I could certainly end up being amazed.
