Fox lies reports:Report: Darren Wilson Was Beaten Up, Fractured Eye Socket Before Shooting

According to an unidentified source who is close to police department leaders, Ferguson, Mo., cop Darren Wilson suffered facial injuries and was beaten to near unconsciousness.


Ferguson, Mo., Police Officer Darren Wilson reportedly suffered severe facial injuries from being beaten up before he shot and killed unarmed teen Michael Brown, a new report from an unidentified source claims, Fox News reports.

The source, who Fox said was close to Ferguson Police Department leaders, told the news network that Wilson suffered “severe facial injuries” which included an eye socket fracture, and was also beaten to the point that he almost lost consciousness.

“The assistant [police] chief took him to the hospital, his face all swollen on one side,” the source claimed. “He was beaten very severely.”

Video footage, taken at the scene shortly after the shooting, showed Wilson pacing around Brown’s body. He did not appear to be nursing any wounds as he walked (a witness narrates at 2:01 in the video below).

6. Even the Diane Rehm show this morning allowed those lies to go unchallenged.

 

Even the Diane Rehm show this morning allowed those lies to go unchallenged.

Diane had a basically sensible panel commenting on Ferguson this morning. But late in the show, when some clearly white (by their accents and speech patterns) and clearly racist (by their words) callers cited the alleged 'blown out eye socket,' not one panelist mentioned this video footage. Meanwhile, Diane just about fell over herself in a rush to state that deadly force from a police officer CAN be justified at times (Really Diane? No shit. Good thing you are here to inform us NPR listeners).

3. The conservatives are relying drudge and some idiot named holt for these claims

The conservatives do not care about facts. Facts get in the way of a good attack story

11. Um, I think you mean 'Hoft,' as in "Jim Hoft." The right-wing site LittleGreenFootballs

 

has largely demolished Hoft's supposed proof (and thereby Drudge's ostensible sourcing for same):

It’s possible that someone did leak this information to Hoft, but I’ll remind my readers that Jim Hoft is probably the single most dishonest right wing blogger on the Internet as well as the dumbest, with a very long history of distorting facts and completely making stuff up to push his far right, often overtly racist agenda.

9. No wonder they helped him flee the crime scene.

 

There will be no way to prove this, since he has no injuries. Wow...the cops just don't give two shits about lying.

19. Wouldn't there be trauma to Mike Brown's hands?

There should've been bruising, swelling, possibly scratches around his knuckles if he beat Wilson that hard.

22. Going to wait for the Justice Dept report before believing anything.

 

So many false accusations all the way around. One main fact: an unarmed man was shot dead in the middle of the street.

It would seem like something this major would have been discussed from the very first minute


It is bullshit designed to feed the Trolls. Ignore it.

24. next comes the

beating his head against the concrete sidewalk ala zimmyman.

what happens when a lie is told is that another lie has to be told to cover the first one and then another, and another and another on into eternity.

You only have to tell the truth once.
