Ferguson police officer has fractured eye socket

The Ferguson, Missouri policeman who shot convenience store robber Michael Brown suffered an orbital blowout fracture to his eye socket. Isn't it odd how, according to Al (I speak for all blacks) Sharpton, Brown was just minding his own business when the police officer started shooting at him--and somehow the officer ends up with a broken eye socket?

It sure adds credence to the account that Brown had been abusive and the officer feared for his life.

For all we know the officer could have run into a door.

He could have walked into a door. We KNOW he was walking backwards! LOL

Is after they secluded Wilson,another officer hit Wilson in his eye-socket, in order to blow out Wilson's eye-socket, so that he could say he was hit in the eye-socket. That's a hell of an eye-socket story if I ever heard one.

LOL

frigging Zed... refuses to believe this is a non issue. A thug robs a carry out, then gets in a fight with a cop and gets his ass shot for it.

The End. No news.

I like this theory.

Maybe the cop "threw hisself on mikes' fist"?

keep your powder dry, just in case it catches fire all over the country. After all the looting will be on behalf of Michael

Yep, buy it cheap, and stack it deep!

What if the bullet wounds in Brown's arms were a result of the struggle in the police car that also caused the officer's smashed eye socket? That really spoils Sharpton's "put your arms up in surrender" ploy.

I hope that the officer's family has taken lots of photos of his injuries--can't count on the Attorney General being honest--they'll need to gather their own evidence.

Sharpton is a joke, his only followers are the radical racists. Holder is about as corrupt as you can get. He claims he has a personal interest in this case. Nothing that has happened in Washington is a crime, and where has he been on those issues. Just like Sharpton, Holder is a race divider. If its black on black crime they are nowhere to be found. That proves their racism.

What if the officer went to the station and the other officers noticed he had no marks on him. I can hear the conversation. "You are in deep doo-doo, Bro. We are going to have to rough you up so that it looks like there was a struggle." If you look at the video of the officer immediately after the shooting he had no marks on him, unless Brown rose from the dead and beat the hell out of him. I smell conspiracy cover-up on this one.

What video showed no marks? The one "everybody knows about?" Link? I believe Brown won the fist fight, or would have. I'm not a cop. If I was, and was told to take beatings and in no way defend myself, I would roll up the windows, turn on the air conditioner, listen to the stereo, and cruise around until it was time to retire. Since most citizens are fully capable of defending themselves I would steer clear of this sort of situation.

The video was on CNN.

Then you should be able to link to it.

I actually think I know the video you're speaking of. But it was taken from a 2nd story window and wasn't close enough to view the injuries to the Officer so it wasn't definitive one way or another. Unless you're saying that's not the video in which case post a link and we can all judge for ourselves.

That's a hell of an eye-socket story if I ever heard one. And you Zey could see from that video, mind you a cell phone video from about 50 yards away that officer had no marks on him. wow, you have got eagle vision. Go join the Sharpton crew, they like people like you..

The CNN reporter said that the officer had no marks on him. We know that CNN is always correct.

Any statement I make is the opinion of me exercising my first amendment right to freedom of speech. Freedom of speech in the United States is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and is generally permitted.

Did Mr. Brown attack Officer Wilson?
Were Officer Wilson's injuries a direct result of the alleged attack by Mr. Brown?
Did Mr. Brown actually try to surrender?
Was Mr. Brown rushing at Officer Wilson in a threatening fashion?
Did Officer Wilson have a Taser easily accessible to him?
Are Ferguson police officers trained to shoot to wound, or only to shoot to kill?
Under what circumstances are police officers instructed to use deadly force?

Until these questions are answered without equivocation, I cannot make a rational judgment about this case.

A couple cops said last night, they are trained to shoot "to center mass", and not to wound. Also, they are trained to shoot if they reasonably believe their life is in danger. They also said a taser is not always the right weapon to use with moving targets. I want the same questions answered that you do. But, I also want to see the toxicology screens from both the cop, and the decedent.

You won't find anyone who trains law or military on shooting to wound.

I have strong suspicions about Mr. Brown, but feelings are not facts. As far as Officer Wilson, I may be naïve, but I really don't think that ON DUTY use is high among police officers. After duty, is a whole different ballgame! They are in a high stress profession. Many in high stress professions use drugs to unwind. And we all know which drug is legal in most places in America, and is, therefore, the most abused drug in America.

I read a book years ago by Jeff Cooper. As I recall, he said NEVER pull your weapon out, unless you are fully committed to killing whoever caused you to pull it in the first place.

Looking at how hush, hush the Ferguson police are, it's obvious they are covering up something. If they don't say anything they can't be accused of lying. I have a feeling that if the police told what they know the whole town would be in flames.

I think that the heavy hands of Obama and Holder have put the fear of God in the police. They've been warned, "Don't you dare make photos of the beat-up cop available to the public, don't let the dozens of witnesses who saw the deceased bum-rush the policeman come forward, etc. etc.

How in the world could you think that the Ferguson police could cover up anything? If there was something majorly incriminating against the cop, the Feds and the liberal media would be all over it.

The Fed's already know. They are keeping it under wraps to make sure the town isn't burned to the ground.

There is outrage in Ferguson. How many other young black males have been killed since the killing of Michael Brown? Where is the outrage over their deaths. They are just as dead as is Michael Brown. Their friends and family members are just as devastated. Personally, I mourn for all of the senseless deaths, especially of young people.
I am adding this link to an article written after the killing of Trayvon Martin. IMHO...The writer places things into the proper perspective.

in St. Louis alone this year.
Where was the outrage?
Where were the protests?
Do we, outside of the St. Louis area, even know any of the names of these murder victims? I don't.
And, does anyone really care...that is, if they cannot make an emotional issue out of the killing? Or get media attention?
We should care about every needless death. "Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind," John Donne.

Attacking people is as senseless as it gets.

G-MAN -- Once again, we agree!

It appears that police everywhere think they have a right to kill Black Men no matter how petty the crime. It wasn't so long ago Black Men were lynched for walking on sidewalks.

fortunately, there are few police killings compared to the number of total killings in this nation. I have known several police officers over the years. I know not one who sees her/his duty to "protect and serve," including indiscriminately gunning down young African-American males.
The great fear which many, if not most, Americans have, regardless of race or ethnicity, is of some stranger killing them for one of a variety of reasons, including racial hatred. The truth is that murder is, most often, a very personal crime. 90% or more of African-American males are killed by other African-Americans. Well over 80% of white males are killed by other whites! And the majority of those murdered knew their killer before the heinous act was committed. Often, the killer is a family member, involved in an intimate relationship with the victim, or both.

My point is that every murder should bring outrage. We should try to get to the bottom of every murder. One big problem doing so is that murder cases are among the hardest cases to prove. Often, the only witness to the crime is the decedent!
So, we must get to the crux of the issue. We are a very violent society. How will we, as a society, begin to do a better job of solving our problems without the use of violence? We must inculcate our youth with the message that violence solves nothing. Violence begets more violence, and the basic problems which caused one to seek a violent solution, most often remain unsolved. And, in many cases, the problems are exacerbated by the escalation in the level of violence.

I am not so naïve as to believe that we will ever eliminate violence from our society. But -- really now -- can't we do better?

"We must inculcate our youth with the message that violence solves nothing."

Sorry, Liberal, but we've seen the outcome of that stupid ideology for long enough. Self-defense is violent, naturally, yet it's a perfect solution that solves everything.

You Liberals have no fucking idea still, about the social damage that you've done to us with your anti-violence propaganda. Humans are violent. You can't do anything about that, except provide outlets. But you've gotten rid of things like shooting clubs and boxing clubs; those offended you to your retarded Liberal cores. Every time some kid tried to deal with things like bullying and arguing with his fists, the Liberal educational infection put a stop to it. By demonizing the natural reaction to conflict, you turned entire generations of children into repressed sociopaths, even psychopaths. You refused to admit that a few bloody noses when you're young, alleviated social stress and in fact was a proper upbringing. So out came the guns and knives when these malformed kids got old. How else were they to react? They knew nothing else, since you told them it was "bad bad bad" to ever raise your fists for any reason.

"can't we do better"

Yes, we can get rid of all these (mostly illegal) gun-free zones and re-integrate the principles of the Second Amendment back into mainstream society. That means among other things that we should bring back the rifle and pistol teams to the high schools. After all, each child when he matures is fully seized of the right to keep and bear arms. Schools should prepare him for EVERY one of his civil rights.

But you Liberals will never allow that. So we can't do better. You won't let it get better.

Liberalism is a disease. Sanity is the cure.

If someone attacks me, and they're twice my size, I'll defend myself to the amount necessary to stop my attacker.

I've told you this once before. It was legal per Missouri law.

It was also upheld in Mattis v. Schnarr. http://openjurist.org/547/f2d/1007#fn1

Justifiable homocide in Missouri is defined as: (3) When necessarily committed in attempting by lawful ways and means to apprehend any person for any felony committed, or in lawfully * * * keeping or preserving the peace. Source: V.A.M.S. § 559.040.

Assault and Robbery are not petty theft.

Maybe before commenting you should educate yourself.

MikeyA

So tiring to hear thugs being portrayed as good kids just because they happen to be 'of color'. On his last day on earth this asshole robbed a carryout and assaulted a cop.

Get over it and go buy your own flat screen.

If the kid committed a felony. Stealing a box of cigars is not a felony.

zed

Don't you twist this to make it sound like it was shoplifting. You know better.
If you strong arm someone it doesn't matter what the haul was.

It's shop lifting pure and simple.

It is clear on the videotape of the theft of the cigars, that Mr. Brown was confronted by the shop owner and pushed that much smaller, innocent man aside. I am not a lawyer, and I don't play one on TV, but that looks like an assault to me.

Once again, too many who post here are drawing conclusions before we know all of the facts. I would be very careful about taking sides before all of the evidence is made public.

ZC is a perfect example of someone who has made a determination and will twist facts to justify his end game. This is so much of what is wrong with our society.

Fact should be used to find the determination not the other way around.

This is ironic because I made a comment and ZC and AC told me I had "convicted" Brown and that I had made a determination on the shooting itself. This was not the case. I only made a determination on the assault and robbery because I saw the two videos with my own eyes. As far as the shooting goes I had not made a determination and while the facts support Officer Wilson's side thus far I'm still not entirely sold but his side of the story has more credibility. The law supports the Officer's use of force, it still remains to be seen if the circumstance supports the use of force. ZC rejects that the law supports the use of force outright, once again this is disputed by facts.

ZC I hope no one decides to ever "shoplift" you or a family member.

It became a felony when brown put his hands on the clerk.

Regardless...he also committed a felony when he put his hands on a cop...

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

The crimes committed by Mr.. Brown does not warrant the death penalty. Don't you get it? It's interesting how times change. Some years ago a Black Man could receive the death penalty for walking on a sidewalk. Mr. Brown was executed for not walking on the sidewalk.

To simplify his death like that is disrespectful. He was shot because he attacked a police officer and then charged him with intent to do bodily harm. Why cheapen it with your ignorant walking in the street comment.

Any statement I make is the opinion of me exercising my first amendment right to freedom of speech. Freedom of speech in the United States is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and is generally permitted.

information. I only "know" what I saw on the videotape from the store. I don't "know" what happened between Mr. Brown and Officer Wilson. I don't "know" what the extent of Officer Wilson's injuries were, or, if indeed, he had sustained any injuries from an alleged attack by Mr. Brown.

It is true that in the past an innumerable number of white police officers shot African-Americans for a wide variety of reasons having nothing to do with law enforcement, and/or enforcing laws which were unconstitutional and were proved to be unconstitutional in the 1950s and 1960s. This happened mostly in the South, including the State of Missouri! That does not justify defiling all white police officers in 2014.
Can we all agree to lower the level of emotion at least until a full report is made public?
Sheesh!
