How & why is Darren Wilson guilty of manslaughter in killing Michael Brown?

November 30, 2014

UPDATE: 12-9-14 DOJ autopsy by  Air Force pathologists agrees with Shelton that some wounds may be re-entry wounds that hit chest after first going through forearm or  first going through forehead to cheek & out jaw (Shelton said maybe upper arm altho she did not examine body and only read autopsy reports) .  This suggests that R arm was up when shot.

Ask yourself: What is excessive force and when should deadly force be used?  If deadly force should not have been used or if it should have been used and then was used excessively, then Wilson is guilty. Also ask yourself what questions should Wilson answer about his behavior. Were they even asked? Finally, how do you interpret the autopsy reports. What do they mean.

The trajectories of the last two bullets show convincingly that Brown was already down when Wilson administered these coup de grace shots. Yet the grand jury was never told in detail about the bullet trajectories and what they indicate. (read further)

Forensic pathology can be a powerful tool. My teacher, Dr. Sandra Conradi, of the Medical University of South Carolina, former President of the American Academy of Forensic Pathologists, once proved a man innocent by self-defense of murder by lining up the trajectories of shot gun pellet wounds of the deceased with metal rods that proved the deceased was standing in a position of a man that was holding a gun. This affirmed the statement of the accused that he only fired because the dead man was holding a rifle and shooting at him.

A grand jury is not to determine innocence or guilt, yet that is how prosecutor McCullough used the St. Louis grand jury. That is prosecutorial misconduct. His father was murdered by an offender when he was a cop and many of his relatives are cops. He was biased and should have recused himself and recommended that a special prosecutor be appointed.

The role of the grand jury is only to determine probable cause. The grand jury is a one-sided presentation of evidence supposedly against the defendant and is meant as a rubber stamp for approving hearsay and allegations, not to determine innocence or guilt.  Only one side is presented and that is the  side determined by the state’s attorney. If the state’s attorney wants an indictment, he gets it almost universally. If, like with McCullough, he does not want an indictment, then he won’t get one because he can selectively manipulate the presentation of evidence and enhance rather than diminish confirmatory bias. Thus, even the fictional Mickey Mouse or a ham sandwich can be indicted. The grand jury system is fundamentally flawed and should be reworked by Congress and by constitutional amendment.

Please note that it is almost  unheard of for the prosecutor to call the defendant as a witness at the grand jury, especially to call him for the main purpose of demonizing the victim. This is gross abuse of prosecutorial discretion as the victim can not defend his reputation and is a slick manipulation of the tools of psychology to  bias the jury against the victim. For a detailed explanation how the prosecutor who is skilled can manipulate a jury read here.

When Wilson called out to Brown to get on the sidewalk, if he meant to follow that up with a jaywalking ticket or arrest for the shoplifting, then he should have gotten out of his car.  He apparently did not connect the shoplifting with Brown, or he would have called for back-up, simply followed Brown with his car and then with help of colleagues arrested Brown.

Instead it is apparent, that he simply used his car to intimidate Brown by backing up so that he was next to Brown and Johnson. Then the testimony varies. Some believe Wilson grabbed Brown through the window and then Brown slapped Wilson with an open palm which enraged Wilson who pulled his gun and threatened to shoot Brown if he did not comply. Others say Brown slammed against door and beat Wilson viciously with his fists, to the point that Wilson said he  feared for his life and pulled his gun. Pictures of red-cheeked Wilson comport with a slap and not a punch with a fist. The stories then further vary with some stating Brown was grabbing Wilson’s gun to shoot him, but others stating he was just grabbing the barrel of the gun to push it away from pointing at Brown. Unfortunately, the gun was wiped clean so that fingerprints could not be lifted from it to determine where Brown’s hand may have touched it. We only know it was shot in the car and a bullet hit Brown’s hand.

The state’s attorney did not ask Brown why he did not simply move his car to get away from Brown instead of pulling his gun. He did not ask Wilson why he didn’t just follow Brown in his car and call for back-up. Did he ask him if at that point he connected Brown with the shoplifting and if he did so, why he did not await back-up?  The slight redness of Wilson’s cheeks and no documented injuries were not used by the state’s attorney to question the veracity of his story that he was viciously beaten to within an inch of his life by Brown forcing Wilson to pull his gun and shoot.  The grand jury by then was so biased by the one-sided presentation from McCullough and the demonizing of Brown that they didn’t question these obvious inconsistencies making Wilson a clear liar to the grand jury. We cannot believe anything Wilson said due to the fact that his story that he feared for his life after such minimal redness to his cheeks and likely deep injury to his pride does not match his “injuries”.

It is because McCullough failed to ask these questions that the bias is so crystal clear.

Then when the forensic autopsy evidence was presented, no one emphasized that at 15 ft away Wilson admitted he let out a volley of shots with at least two of these chest shots in a downward trajectory proving that Brown was already falling down at 15 feet away from Wilson.

No pathologist bothered to state that the back to front forearm wound may line up with the front to back upper arm wound on Brown proving that his right arm was in the air with his hand at shoulder level when he was shot at 15 ft away.

No pathologist bothered to then state that Brown was not just falling down, but nearly on the ground when the last two shots were fired and Brown was 8-10 feet away from Wilson. Wilson admitted that he “sited . . . [Brown’s] head . . .” and fired and the trajectory of the last two shots was (A) through the forehead down through the cheek and out the jaw proving top of head down towards toes trajectory and (B) through top of head with towards toes trajectory.

As Wilson and Brown were the same height, 6′ 4″, this  means that Brown was either on his knees falling down or nearly completely having fallen down, when Wilson made the final head shot in a coup de grace manner.

There is no way Wilson saw Brown’s face at the last two shots as the trajectories prove Brown was looking down, not at Wilson. So how could Wilson say Brown looked like a mad demon or whatever if he couldn’t see his face? Wilson was looking at the top of Brown’s head when  he fired the last two shots at 8-10 ft away. It is unlikely that a Brown was “charging” at Wilson without looking at him.

Have someone make a computer animation of how Wilson could shoot Brown with a downward trajectory as explained in the autopsy notes that does not suggest excessive force and/or intentional coup de grace.  Just try! The pathologist could have passed a straight rod through the wounds and taken pictures to show the trajectories more clearly. He Could have even positioned the body for the last four shots and the arm shots to prove what I am stating about what the body position  was likely to have been when Brown was hit. I hate to suggest this, but I would even like to see the body of Brown exhumed and this done so that my allegations can be proven.

The U.S. Attorney should investigate this case for prosecutorial misconduct, civil rights violations, and perjury by Wilson. The Gov. should look into how a  new grand jury can be convened with a special prosecutor. Congress should call hearings about  court, judicial, prosecutorial, and police corruption and misuse of grand juries. The people must rise up unite not under racism but under judicial reform and fight the system until it is reformed.

This is because Wilson in my book is guilty of manslaughter, as are so many other officers. We must change training of officers and laws so that shooting is the last resort and that it must stop when the person falls or is no longer a threat.

Evidence that we in the U.S. live in a totalitarian police state

September 24, 2012

Americans brag about our “freedom”. Yet we have very little of it. Our founding fathers would turn over in their grave if they knew how our “democracy” has turned into an oligarchy where the public is just a bunch of ignorant happy slaves.

If you are ill, the decisions between you and your physician are over-ridden by the private for-profit insurance companies that waste half our healthcare dollars on increasing their profits for shareholders and corporate CEOs. Whether you obtain needed treatment depends on the OK from a pencil pushing poorly trained nurse reviewing your request for approval for treatment. Your dog gets more rational, loving care from you and your veterinarian than you get from the healthcare system.

If you run a business you will be subject to so many regulations that don’t make sense that your head will spin, so many forms you won’t be able to do any business as you’re spending so much time filling out the forms, and you’ll be in a constant state of worry that you may have missed compliance with some regulation and will end up with a huge fine for being “in violation.”

The cost before you even begin will be huge as you may have to get a license and pay through the teeth for courses and certification and more courses and re-certification even to apply nail polish to someone’s fingers.

From retirement to buying a house, to running a small business selling nail polish we are over-regulated, overtaxed and over-papered. The only way you can avoid this is if you are one of the 1 % who has the means to pay the bribes, find the loopholes, and make your own decisions.

We are at the mercy of our masters and our despotic kings behind the scenes. The Illinois legislature is run by a handful of people who decide who will put their names on bills and which bills will be passed. Who is elected president little matters. The 1% will control him/her.

Republican or Democrat, it doesn’t matter. The 1 % is a cabal of corruption that have figured out how to exploit our “democracy” and hide the exploitation from the happy ignorant masses.

We must restore our Constitution, bring up our education to a world-class level, and strengthen our checks and balances so that patronage and corruption no longer have the upper hand. Until then there is very little hope for the masses.

We have seen in recent years that the bursting of the housing bubble has allowed the 1% to scoop up much of the assets of the 99 % at record low prices making the 1% richer than ever and in control of more of our property and assets than ever. Tax rates for the 1% in the lst 50 years have dropped from 65 % to less than 20 %. The elite are consolidating their power and wealth.

Our country is a totalitarian police state run by a few rich people and multinational corporations, sort of like the King in Robinhood and the inherited Lordships. In Illinois the King is Former Gov. Jim Thompson (R) and his inherited Lordships are the Daleys (D), the Madigans (D), the Burkes (D), the Lipinskys(D), the relatives of former Sheriff Sheahan (D), the Beavers (D), the Jacksons (D), the Brosnahans (D), and many others.

You don’t get a judicial appointment or get elected as a judge unless you have the stamp of approval of Alderman Burke and have paid a $10,000 bribe to have your campaign signs printed and posted on the lawns of employees of the Secr. of State and Cook County Sheriff’s offices. You don’t get to be a supervisor in these offices unless you post signs and sell tickets to fundraising events. You don’t get contracts with Illinois, Cook County, or Chicago unless you pay a 15% bribe from the income you make from the contract to political funds such as “Friends of Madigan”. Then the money is laundered through phony foundations such as now defunct Save-A-Life foundation, through purchases of homes for $1 where they are then resold using under the table cash (like Lisa Madigan does with a dozen homes in Maricopa County, Arizona), etc. Judges ignore the law with impunity in Cook County and likely elsewhere. I have discovered the above facts from numerous anonymous inside sources.

You can’t keep your job with the Cook County Sheriff or other Cook Count agencies unless you donate 3 % of  your salary to the election campaign of your boss such as the Cook County Sheriff – this was told to me by correctional officers at Cook County Jail. There are myriad of ways to get you fired from phoney job evaluations to planting drugs in your car (several Chicago Police officers went to jail when drugs were planted in their cars). Unless the masses employed by the State stand up and turn in their supervisors to federal officers by squealing, this will never change.  The masses are ruled by fear – of job loss and jail.

I don’t believe this will change until we have a viable third party to balance the cabal of corruption that consists of BOTH the Republicans and the Democrats.

As long as:
1 – a few media magnets can transform the “news” media into mere tabloids,
2 – the government can keep our population stupid and uneducated,
3 – the public can be appeased to be like an audience watching gladiators on the news (Anthony trial, reality shows, etc),
4 – the public remains uninformed and willing to accept as “facts” anything fed to them like geese being force fed for foie gras production,
5 – the corrupt leaders can deal with dissidents by throwing them in jail on phoney charges or defaming them as mentally ill without an objection from the public or exposure on the media,
6 – the nation is turned into a prison nation (only jobs available as jobs have been shipped overseas),
7 – our rich are allowed to ship jobs overseas for their profit,
8 – and the rich 1% in this country can continue to get richer during the economic downturn due to the above,

there is no hope.

Top CDC officials indicted – involved in H1N1 flu and vaccine-autism link mis-information

October 28, 2011

Money rules in America and it has now corrupted our system from stem to stern.  Now there is clear-cut evidence in the highest levels of our healthy policy makers. Big business and multi-national corporations rule America, not the people. Those of us who speak up are quashed like a bug. See details about what happened to me here and here.

Not only have the percentage of ALL income in America, for the top 20%, in personal income group, increased from 20% to 60% in the last 30 years meaning that now 80 % of the population receives only 20 % of the income, but our officials who decide our country’s policies and give our population recommendations are being increasingly shown to be greedy, morally corrupted, and unreliable. See the facts here.

Trickle down doesn’t work. As taxes for the ultra-weathy have decreased from 63% to less than 20% (considering all the loopholes), the rich are getting richer and the ranks of the poor are rapidly increasing.

The rich are getting richer off the labor of the 80% of those of us who bust our butts. The middle class is disappearing. The rich are taking possession of our property as we lose it in foreclosure; as our children, elderly, and disabled lose their rights, parents, freedom, and property through corrupt divorce and probate courts – with the government becoming their guardian; and as the wealth of the 99% crashes, which will be further diminished as the dollar’s value crashes and the stock market falls because both have been artificially bubbled just like housing stock. The present rise in stock values is an illusion.  The fundamentals are not there to sustain it. Eventually there will be a much bigger correction than we have already seen.

See the details of the charges against CDC officials here.

Our healthcare system is corrupt.  Our criminal justice system is corrupt – view numerous blog posts here. Our financial system is corrupt. Our educational system is corrupt.

Wake up America.  It is time to act.  Contact your local Occupy Wall Street affiliate.  In Chicago Contact Occupy Chicago.

Iraq war vet skull cracked by police in Occupy Oakland protest

October 27, 2011

On Tuesday, October 25, 2011, police in Oakland, California, aggressively used “nonlethal” rounds to disperse peaceful protesters from Occupy Oakland. Their violent overreaction seriously injured Iraq war veteran Scott Olsen, leaving him hospitalized with a fractured
skull.

Iraq Veterans Against the War, of which Scott is a member, has asked everyone to share the image below to show support. Click here to share this photo to make sure every American knows about this tragedy.

We need as many folks as possible to know about this awful incident so that mayors and police departments around the nation think twice about using force to remove Occupy protesters.

IVAW has also called for vigils for Scott tonight at local Occupy sites at 7 p.m. local time. You can find out if the Occupy near you is participating by going to http://www.occupytogether.org/. Or, just head down to your local occupation to stand in solidarity with IVAW and Scott this evening. Thanks for all you do.
