Video: Police lied. Mike Brown was killed 148 feet away from Darren Wilson’s SUV

 

From Shaun King & The Daily KOS

 

For 104 days, the police have lied and said Mike Brown was killed 35 feet away from Darren Wilson’s SUV. It was actually 148 feet.

 

This distance is essential to the defense and how Darren Wilson must demonstrate that he “reasonably feared for his safety.” At the point in which Mike Brown ran half a football field away, how reasonable is it for an armed officer to fear anyone?

 

On the afternoon of August 9, 2014, Officer Darren Wilson shot and killed Mike Brown, an unarmed teenager, in Ferguson, Missouri. Below is the first video filmed from Canfield Drive, where the shooting occurred, showing the exact measurement between where Darren Wilson’s SUV was parked and Mike Brown died. After that, we methodically debunk the lie that Mike Brown was killed in close proximity to Darren Wilson’s SUV.

 

Our starting point, which is 17 feet behind the driver’s side window of Darren Wilson’s SUV, is this yellow fire hydrant next to the storm drain.

Our end point is 2943 Canfield. Notice the building number in the back of this photo below where Mike Brown’s father and family members are standing over the exact location where Mike Brown was killed.

Mike Brown was killed over 130 feet away from Darren Wilson’s SUV

 

Published on Nov 20, 2014

For months and months, police and the media have grossly misrepresented just how far Mike Brown fled from Darren Wilson as being just 35 feet. After months of research, the availability of previously unseen images, the use of every mapping tool available, and a brand new measurement, we have discovered that Mike Brown fled 148 feet from the window of Darren Wilson’s Chevy Tahoe. In this video, we measured from the yellow fire hydrant, which was actually 17 feet away from the driver’s side window, all the way to the exact location of where Mike Brown fell after being murdered by Darren Wilson. Our distance is 131 feet + 1 inch

 

 

So: 131 feet, 1 inch (distance between the fire hydrant and where Mike Brown died), + 17 feet (distance between the fire hydrant and the driver’s side door of Darren Wilson’s SUV) = 148 feet.

 

The St. Louis-area police have continued to advance this lie for over 104 days since Mike Brown was killed on Canfield Drive on the afternoon of August 9 in Ferguson, Missouri. Here we will methodically expose this lie and examine just why it’s so important.

 

On this past Monday, Gov. Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency in Missouri in anticipation of some level of unrest regarding a decision from the grand jury in the Darren Wilson case. Covering this decision, and the case in general, CNN authoritatively states that Mike Brown was found 35 feet away from Darren Wilson’s SUV. Watch just the first 20 seconds of this video to see how Erin Burnett frames the case.

Published on Nov 18, 2014

11/17/2014: Erin Burnett invites Van Jones, Paul Callan and Dr. Cyril Wecht to discuss the grand jury decision on Darren Wilson’s indictment.

 

 

Where the Lie Began

On August 10, 2014, St. Louis County Police Chief John Belmar held his first press conference on the shooting of Mike Brown by Officer Darren Wilson of the nearby Ferguson Police Department. His force had been called in to take over the investigation for the much smaller local department. The shooting had occurred less than 24 hours earlier, and the tensions on the ground in Ferguson were already red hot and boiling over.

 

Six different witnesses on the scene claimed that Mike Brown was shot at repeatedly from behind before he turned around, faced Darren Wilson, verbally surrendered, and put his hands in the air. Wilson, having already shot at Mike Brown at least six times while he fled, then fired off a barrage of four quick shots at the surrendered Brown he was looking at face to face, killing him on the spot. With his lifeless body face down on the road, Mike Brown’s blood literally flowed down Canfield Drive for more than four hours. The shooting and the aftermath that evening, which included bringing police dogs to the scene, infuriated residents as never before, and the anger was spreading rapidly across St. Louis and into the nation.

 

When Chief Belmar sat down the next day to brief the press on his summary of the facts, he stated at 1:13 (and then even more emphatically at 6:01) in the video below, “The entire scene, from approximately the car door (of Officer Wilson) to the shooting, is, uh, about 35 feet.”

 

See his video below and pay attention to the statements at 1:13 & 6:01.

 

Ferguson Police Shooting Full Press Conference On Michael Brown

 

 

At that time, when the chief said the “entire scene” was just 35 feet in distance from the “car door to the shooting,” every observer accepted it as a negligible fact and thought little about it, instead zeroing in on why Darren Wilson stopped Mike Brown in the first place and why a police officer would shoot a young man who was surrendering with his hands up.

 

It turns, out, though, that the distance Mike Brown fled was not 35 feet, as was stated in the press conference and cited in hundreds of articles since. Nor was it 45 feet, or 75 feet, or even 95 feet, but approximately 148 feet away from Darren Wilson’s SUV. Below, you will find photos from the day of the murder, maps, infographics, and more to confirm for you that the distance was more 500 percent farther away than originally claimed by Chief Belmar and subsequently quoted as fact in almost every narrative of the case.

 

While the initial reporting of this distance from the chief could have been an error, albeit an egregious one, it seems clear now, after over 100 days of requests for the police to clarify this discrepancy have only produced silence, that it wasn’t an oversight, but a deliberate misrepresentation of the facts.

 

What reason would the chief have for so seriously understating the distance by more than 110 feet? Well, how far Mike Brown fled matters greatly, and the St. Louis County Police Department could have many reasons for purposely understating it. One doubts, though, that they expected to be caught telling this lie. When it was first told, while matters were tense in St. Louis and spreading on social media, nobody had any idea that this case would grip the nation and the world.

 

Without even using this space to dive into the actual shooting of Mike Brown, it appears that some base level misconduct can be suspected when the St. Louis County Police Department has repeatedly refused to address the discrepancy in distance.

 

When the police came out the morning after Mike Brown was killed and deliberately included the distance between the SUV and the shooting, it successfully created a very particular narrative. The arc of their initial story, magnified in importance by the absence of even one official report, is that Darren Wilson shot and killed a young man who, in a short distance from the SUV, posed him grave harm. How far Mike Brown actually fled, how far Darren Wilson chased him, and where each of them were in relation to each other and to the SUV, are facts of paramount importance. If Mike Brown fled over 148 feet away from Darren Wilson, it clearly suggests that Brown—unarmed, shot, missing a shoe, in lounge clothes—feared for his life and not the other way around.

 

Furthermore, police, in many cases, use the distance in which a suspect flees and the distance between them in an encounter as evidence to prove they were reasonably afraid for their safety—which is required by law.

 

What follows is evidence to the contrary. Mike Brown fled at least 108 feet away from Darren Wilson’s SUV. If the police will lie about this fact, what else have they openly lied about? Did they present this false distance to the grand jury? Why does the media continue to advance this lie? Here are the facts.

Here is a rarely seen panorama of Canfield Drive moments after Mike Brown was killed. Few images better display that the distance was not a very short 35 feet than this one.

Photo1

This is Darren Wilson’s SUV. Where you see it here is exactly where he parked it to confront Mike Brown and Dorian Johnson for jaywalking. Out of sight in this image, to the left of the driver’s side door, is Mike Brown’s hat (shown in a later image below). Approximately 16 feet behind the SUV is Mike Brown’s black sandal, which came off while he was running. Please notice the fire hydrant to the right of the SUV.

On the center left is Darren Wilson’s SUV from the opposite angle. Notice the two orange cones next to the driver’s side door. That’s Mike Brown’s red St. Louis Cardinals hat next to it.

 

Photo3

Using this image, let’s create starting line A. As effective landmarks, please notice the fire hydrant on the right and the sloping entrance into the apartments

 

From the back of Darren Wilson’s SUV, Brown fled over 100 feet down Canfield Drive. The exact location where Brown died is today marked by a memorial in the middle of the street.

This is ending line B. Mike Brown is the blurred figure on the ground. That is Darren Wilson, visibly uninjured in every image of him from that day, standing to the right. According to eyewitnesses Dorian Johnson, Tiffany Mitchell, and Piaget Crenshaw, Mike Brown turned around, faced Darren Wilson and his SUV, and put his hands in the air.

Using Google Maps, the approximate distance from the front of Darren Wilson’s SUV to where Mike Brown was shot before falling down is actually 148 feet.

All Eyes on Ferguson as Gov. Nixon Declares State of Emergency Ahead of Grand Jury Decision

 

 

State of emergency declared in Ferguson, to last 30 days.

Published on Nov 17, 2014

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon on Monday declared a state of emergency ahead of an expected grand jury ruling on the police shooting of African-American teenager Michael Brown. The incident in August set off weeks of protests and confrontations between police and demonstrators, and authorities fear the coming announcement may set off yet more unrest. RT’s Manuel Rapalo is in Ferguson with more.

This is amazing since BOTH the store owner AND The Ferguson Police Chief said at the time, NO robbery was called into Ferguson police. Quite strange. Took the Ferguson PD 100 days to orchestrate this lie.

New Surveillance Videos Show Darren Wilson After Fatally Shooting Michael Brown.

New Videos Show Darren Wilson After Fatally Shooting Michael Brown

Published on Nov 15, 2014

(ABC) New surveillance videos show Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson leaving for the hospital hours after he fatally shot 18-year-old Michael Brown, sparking weeks of protest in the Missouri city.
The videos, which were obtained by the St. Louis-Post Dispatch, show Wilson, 28, leaving the police station with another officer and a police union lawyer two hours after the shooting, the newspaper reported.

 

Dispatch calls also obtained by the newspaper reveal how quickly the situation between Wilson and Brown escalated.
Wilson can be heard just before noon on August 9 asking other units if they need his help locating a robbery suspect.
“You guys need me?” he asks in the recordings.
Less than 10 minutes later, another officer asks for help controlling the scene where Brown was shot.
Get us several more units over here. There’s going to be a problem,” says the officer.

 

During the call a woman appears to be crying in the background.
Brown was unarmed when he was shot six times by Wilson. Weeks of protests and some incidents of looting followed after the shooting outraged the Ferguson community.

 

Wilson, who has been suspended with pay, claimed he was injured in a confrontation with Brown. Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson previously said that the confrontation started because the teenager was walking in the middle of the street.
A state grand jury is investigating whether he should face criminal charges. A decision is expected this month.
The Department of Justice is also looking into the case.

 

 

Does anyone see any visible signs on Darren Wilson of a blown eye socket? Bruises? Contusions? ANYTHING from an attack by Michael Brown? Remember the bogus claims from George Zimmerman how Trayvon Martin went for his weapon and a “fight for his life” ensued?

 

Whom you gonna call to protect you from those paid to “serve & protect”…..you?

This Dispatches documentary has unique access to vigilante gangs that target gay men and women in Russia. It depicts a country troubled by disturbing violence and distressing intimidation.

 

 

On the eve of the Sochi Winter Olympics, Russia is officially welcoming gay athletes and spectators. But in a country where it’s thought only 1% of gay people dare to live completely openly, it appears to be a hollow gesture.

 

This extraordinary Dispatches documentary has gained unique access to the vigilante gangs that target gay men and women. The film depicts a country troubled by disturbing violence and distressing intimidation.

 

Six months after the Russian parliament unanimously passed a law to protect children from ‘non-traditional’ relationships, this film explores the terror that gay people in Russia are calling ‘hunting season’.

On Friday, the world’s eyes will be on Russia as the 2014 Winter Olympics begin.  Will millions of Olympics fans learn the truth about Russia’s draconian anti-LGBT law? Or will the Olympics be a propaganda tool for Putin and Russia, sweeping its human rights abuses under the rug?

 

NBC producer Jim Bell has said the network won’t “shy away from reporting anything” around LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender) issues in Russia. We need to make sure that includes truly educating viewers about the plight of LGBT people in Russia – an important way to report the actual news and turn up the pressure on Russia to change its ways.

 

putinlgbt

 

NBC plans to air 1,500 hours of programming on the Sochi Olympics. They have enough time to tell this story.

 

Ask NBC today, before the Games begin, to devote significant, dedicated primetime coverage worthy of this major human rights crisis.

 

For the full 17-day run of the Sochi Games, we’ll monitor the Olympic coverage on all of NBC’s networks 24/7 and track the time they devote toLGBT rights in Russia. You can follow along by checking HRC.org/Russia where we’ll be posting daily updates.

 

NBC has given plenty of indications that they’ll do the right thing. They sent me a letter that makes it clear that the Russian law is in violation of the International Olympic Committee rules. They even brought openly-gay U.S. Sochi delegation members Billie Jean King, Brian Boitano and Caitlin Cahow on The Today Show to talk about the anti-LGBT situation in Russia.

 

It’s encouraging to see the coverage so far on NBC and to hear the network’s assurance that their journalists will “do what they have to do to report stories as they develop.” But we still don’t know exactly what that means, or what NBC’s coverage will be.

 

During the 2012 London Olympics, NBC aired a primetime segment about Greenwich Mean Time and the invention of the wristwatch. With 1,500 hours of coverage of the Sochi Olympics – devoting dedicated primetime coverage to one of the biggest stories of this Olympics isn’t too much to ask.

 

sochi

 

Take a minute now and send your letter NBC – ask them to devote significant, dedicated primetime coverage to the plight of LGBT Russians and their allies.

 

HRC has been working on this issue for months – from our “Love Conquers Hate” campaign raising funds for Russian human rights groups, to pressuring the International Olympic Committee and the corporate sponsors of the Olympics to speak out, to months of pressure on NBC. It all comes down to the next few days.

 

Thanks for standing with us.
