The narratives, they are a changin’.
The New York Times published a story tonight detailing the autopsy of Ferguson, Missouri, teen Michael Brown. Things are not as they had appeared in the immediate aftermath of his death last week.
As news spread, the narrative-jolting autopsy results trended on Twitter.
Analysts and news observers drew out the implications and minced no words:
Pathologist says Brown was shot from the front. Head wound suggests he was leaning forward (charging?) #Ferguson http://t.co/L26JmWWtTX

@bob_owens– That plus this (http://t.co/GFG2fZJmZE) adds up…but that means #DorianJohnson is lying. How can that be!?! CC: @michellemalkin

“@Rayado2011: @ChrisLoesch Jesse Jackson just insinuated on CNN that it was "execution style."” He was wrong. http://t.co/lDx29LHVLW

Reminder that Mike Brown's autopsy directly contradicts the primary witness's story, and that cops are trained to shoot multiple times.

MT @RyanNewYork: Brown’s autopsy results – he was shot 6 times. Results cast doubts on police ”gun struggle“ story. http://t.co/PxDzKkSa7o

And just so you know, a few reminders about Dr. Michael Baden:
Dr. Baden reviewed the autopsies of JFK and MLK. RT @nytimes: Autopsy Shows Michael Brown Was Struck at Least 6 Times http://t.co/RbpLhwsc4H

The DOJ autopsy — which would be the third autopsy on Brown — is apparently still on.
whoah. @nytimes article on Dr. Baden 2nd #MikeBrown autopsy says Eric Holder is going to have a THIRD autopsy done. http://t.co/tsq6n4fwwy

The Holder/DOJ autopsy will actually be the third autopsy. Local did first, family asked for second (completed) and DOJ doing another

Here’s the version of the shooting as told by Michael Brown’s friend Dorian Johnson, who was with Brown at the time (as well as during the strong-arm robbery of a grocery store earlier that day):
Brown and Johnson then ran towards a line of three cars on the side of the street. Johnson went behind the first, but Brown ran past. Brown yelled “Keep running, bro!” But by the time he got to the third car, the officer shot Brown in the back, according to Johnson.
Johnson says Brown stopped, put his hands up, turned around, and yelled he didn’t have a gun.
The officer allegedly shot several more times, Brown fell to the ground, and Johnson ran to his apartment.
And here’s the account of a woman who called into Dana Loesch’s radio show late last week.
Transcript of the caller via Gateway Pundit:
He pulled up ahead of them. And then he got a call-in that there was a strong-arm robbery. And, they gave a description. And, he’s looking at them and they got something in their hands and it looks like it could be what, you know those cigars or whatever. So he goes in reverse back to them. Tries to get out of his car. They slam his door shut violently. I think he said Michael did. And, then he opened the car again. He tried to get out. He stands up.
And then Michael just bum-rushes him and shoves him back into his car. Punches him in the face and them Darren grabs for his gun. Michael grabbed for the gun. At one point he got the gun entirely turned against his hip. And he shoves it away. And the gun goes off.
Well, then Michael takes off and gets to be about 35 feet away. And, Darren’s first protocol is to pursue. So, he stands up and yells, “Freeze!” Michael and his friend turn around. And Michael taunts him… And then all the sudden he just started bumrushing him. He just started coming at him full speed. And, so he just started shooting. And, he just kept coming. And, so he really thinks he was on something.

What some people were saying before the autopsy report came out:
@fmanjoo Oh you're right. I thought that was 6-9. Even if it was him, it's irrelevant. He was unarmed and shot in the back. Unjustifiable.

Video from #Ferguson eerily reminiscent of 1970 Kent State, "four dead in Ohio," shot in the back by heavily armed cops and guardsmen.

And shot him several times as he was running away. If the cop was unaware of the robbery, it had no bearing on this case. It's only released

@bones_mckinney I know that an unarmed man, running away with his hands up, should not be shot and killed for any reason.
