MICHAEL BROWN HIGH ON DRUGS DURING CONFRONTATION WITH POLICE OFFICER

PHILLYCRIMENEWS  — ACCORDING TO THE CHIEF MEDICAL EXIMINER, THE AFRICAN AMERICAN YOUTH SHOT BY A POLICE OFFICER WHILE ATTEMPTING TO GRAB HIS FIREARM WAS HIGH ON MARIJUANA WHEN HE ATTACKED THE OFFICER. THIS COMES AFTER THE REVELATION THAT MICHAEL BROWN WAS SHOT FROM THE FRONT AS HE “BUMRUSHED” THE OFFICER AND HIT HIM IN THE FACE BREAKING HIS EYE SOCKET. THIS INFORMATION CONTRADICTS ALL WITNESS TESTIMONY SO FAR WHICH SAID HE WAS RUNNING AWAY. ANOTHER WITNESS STATED ON VIDEO THAT BROWN TRIED TO RUN BUT THEN TURNED AROUND AND CHARGED AT THE OFFICER YELLING “YOU WON’T SHOOT ME”. THE OFFICER HAD STATED TO INVESTIGATORS THAT BROWN LOOKED LIKE HE WAS HIGH ON  DRUGS AND THE CORONER’S REPORT SEEMS TO CONFIRM THAT. BROWN HAD ROBBED A STORE AND ASSAULTED A CLERK JUST BEFORE HIS CONFRONTATION WITH POLICE.
