Authorities Say Michael Brown’s Blood Found on Gun, Inside Police Car
Michael Brown’s blood on the gun and inside the car just indicates that he was shot at least once inside the car, nothing more, nothing less. The fact that he was shot to death while many feet from the car is the key thing in whether or not an indictment should be issued to my mind. Even if Michael Brown was doing something he shouldn’t have, that doesn’t give the LEO right to shoot him down in the street after the threat is gone.
Forensic evidence shows Michael Brown’s blood on the gun, uniform and inside the car of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, law enforcement officials said, information they believe potentially corroborates the officer’s story that the unarmed 18-year-old tried to take his gun.
The evidence will make it harder for the Justice Department to prosecute Officer Darren Wilson on federal charges that he violated Brown’s civil rights, said the officials, who asked their names be withheld because of the sensitivity of the case.
Such evidence would also make it difficult for a county grand jury to indict Wilson on state charges, such as murder or manslaughter, said county sources who also are prohibited from talking on the record about the pending case.
