Witness: Michael Brown Did Not Reach for Police Weapon Before He Was Shot to Death
In this clip from Chris Hayes’ MSNBC show All In, Michael Brown’s friend Dorin Johnson describes what happened when a Ferguson, Missouri police officer shot Brown to death. Johnson’s account differs radically from the official police account; he says Brown never “assaulted” the officer or tried to grab his gun.
It’s very interesting that although Johnson’s lawyer and the NAACP have contacted the police to make him available, the police have not interviewed him yet. But in an investigation, it’s vital to interview witnesses as soon after a violent incident as possible. This does not smell right.
