Is this Fox report “selective release of sensitive information,” as AG Eric Holder says, or is it a case of the Ferguson PD moving information out to explain more of what happened when Officer Wilson shot and killed Michael Brown?

Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, Mo., police officer whose fatal shooting of Michael Brown touched off more than a week of demonstrations, suffered severe facial injuries, including an orbital (eye socket) fracture, and was nearly beaten unconscious by Brown moments before firing his gun, a source close to the department’s top brass told FoxNews.com.

“The Assistant (Police) Chief took him to the hospital, his face all swollen on one side,” said the insider. “He was beaten very severely.”

According to the well-placed source, Wilson was coming off another case in the neighborhood on Aug. 9 when he ordered Michael Brown and his friend Dorain Johnson to stop walking in the middle of the road because they were obstructing traffic. However, the confrontation quickly escalated into physical violence, the source said..

“They ignored him and the officer started to get out of the car to tell them to move,” the source said. “They shoved him right back in, that’s when Michael Brown leans in and starts beating Officer Wilson in the head and the face.

Look, the PD has motivation to defend its officer — especially with MO Gov. Jay Nixon (D) irresponsibly calling for the officer’s “vigorous prosecution” without apparently knowing any more about the case than anyone else does. Nixon, a lawyer, surely knows that the correct word to use there was “investigation,” not “prosecution.” One follows the other, if the evidence warrants it.

But this does line up with the bit about Wilson grabbing Brown’s throat. Brown was too tall for a seated officer in the squad car to grab his throat. But if Brown was outside the car attacking Wilson through the window inside the car, then he would have been bent over at some point, and Wilson may have grabbed his throat in the course of the altercation.

Needless to say, if Officer Wilson sustained these severe injuries, then Brown wasn’t the angel that many portrayed him as in the early days after his death. He had robbed a store — we know that for a fact — and that robbery may have had gang and drug ties.

The source claims that there is “solid proof” that there was a struggle between Brown and Wilson for the policeman’s firearm, resulting in the gun going off – although it still remains unclear at this stage who pulled the trigger. Brown started to walk away according to the account, prompting Wilson to draw his gun and order him to freeze. Brown, the source said, raised his hands in the air, and turned around saying, “What, you’re going to shoot me?”

At that point, the source told FoxNews.com, the 6 foot, 4 inch, 292-pound Brown charged Wilson, prompting the officer to fire at least six shots at him, including the fatal bullet that penetrated the top of Brown’s skull, according to an independent autopsy conducted at the request of Brown’s family.

Wilson suffered a fractured eye socket in the fracas, and was left dazed by the initial confrontation, the source said. He is now “traumatized, scared for his life and his family, injured and terrified” that a grand jury, which began hearing evidence on Wednesday, will “make some kind of example out of him,” the source said.

With Eric Holder in town now and Gov. Nixon circling as well, with the Justice Brothers making their demands and the media in a full tornado frenzy, that is the way to bet.

Yeah, Jeff, it sucks so much, they feel entitled to walk into a store, take anything they want, and walk out without paying. And being a black man in America is so demoralizing, they feel justified in beating the hell out of any police officer they encounter.

I used to think blacks had some legitimate grievances, but I have no sympathy for the crap you just posted, or for the circus going on in Ferguson.

The fact that Zimmerman had a gash on the back of his head and a bloody / broken nose did not seem to sway the leftist mob's view of events. I doubt they'll be honest here.

Looks like the real story is "Decorated cop risks own life to stop violent felon".

I'm sure there are pictures of the officer's injuries. The question is, why weren't they released before a bunch of business owners lost everything?

There would have been reprisals against the officer and his family. The business owners lost everything because the police did not suppress the riots with adequate force. It is also possible that the pictures do not reveal the extent of the injuries.

Has anyone heard about Brown's hands/knuckles from the autopsy report? All I've heard about is his right hand, chest, eye and top of his head. No mention has been made about the condition of his hands and knuckles. They are crucial in the case to be made that Brown punched Wilson so hard he broke his eye socket.

Several writers who should know better keep asserting this was a "brand new allegation" when Gateway Pundit broke it on Tuesday, but the local Chief mentioned in his August 13 press conference that the officer had been injured and had been taken to the hospital with a badly swollen face. That's over a week ago.

People need to pay attention to the facts and not to Crump-Sharpton-Holder-New Black Panthers.

Not everyone has the ability to watch press conferences when they're aired, and must rely on subsequent reports.

From other news in Ferguson, MO:

Holder also met with Missouri State Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson, who is coordinating law enforcement response to the protests. Asked whether he had confidence in the local investigation led by the St. Louis County prosecuting attorney, Johnson said: "General Holder, by being here, is a guarantee on that."

'General Holder' - unbelievable.

Colleagues such as Ron Johnson saying inasmuch during the ridiculously early stages of an ongoing investigation.. hate to see Officer Wilson's enemies.

No, no , no!!! Michael Brown did not assault Officer Wilson. Officer Wilson slammed his face into the steering wheel of his patrol car to make it "look" like he had an excuse to shoot an unarmed child. That must have been how it happened.

Eric Holder's Racial Instigation Ministry (RIM) has no use for the facts. The whole narrative seems to be coming apart as the real facts surface- and it only makes sense if it is assumed that our oh-so-benevolent Department of "Justice" is angling for an excuse to begin instituting martial law- with the help of an inciteful mainstream media as well as the invaluable instigating of the pros- most notable Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson..

I decided long time ago that I was not going to say to a cop if I was stopped:"What's your problem officer?" The proper response, "Yes sir." "No sir." It shows respect, it's surprising, they have a gun and other reasons.

I will not be subservient to my employees.

I will treat them with respect, with courtesy, but I will not grovel.

I cannot imagine having the nerve to assault a cop sitting in his car, and then just walking away as if everything was fine. That right there says a lot about the mindset of Brown

It does. But so does robbing a store and then strolling down the block in the middle of the street.

I mentioned elsewhere that a person who acts like that fears no reprisals for reasons I'm unclear about. They pretty much think they can do whatever they want and not even a cop has anything to say about it. It seems like a typical know-not-care gangsta mentality. It's idiocy by any other name.

It's being actively taught in the ghetto community. "Ain't nobody got any right to put their hands on you!"

We will be hearing more of this rot.

Look at what a search on Youtube finds. Mind you, the search term is simply, "woman removed from plane". There is nothing about race in those search terms, but ponder the results, and listen to the attitudes:

This is what comes in the wake of many years of exposure to decadent pop culture that emanates from Hollywood & the music industry.
