A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:
Police Officer Darren Wilson’s injuries after he was assaulted by “the unarmed black teenager”
Why, why, why—–aren’t the media releasing the photos of Police Officer Darren Wilson’s injuries after he was assaulted by “the unarmed black teenager”?
He was punched in the face before he emptied his weapon into the drugged “unarmed teenager”—here is what a broken eye socket looks like.
Photo is at the end..OMG………as it says..why has this photo not been blasted all over the media..
This guy needs our help……………….the rest of the story.
If a 300 pound 6’6″ guy comes at you with intend to harm , in a confined space like a house, you better shoot him. Especially if “he” thinks you are there to arrest him.
It appears this guy shot Brown several times in “non-lethal” areas trying to stop him. Otherwise why would he have been shot so many times in the arm and side?
……..and after he had been hit in the head by this “gentle giant”!!!
You won’t see much defense of this cop by the media. They like “race” stories better than “all of the story” or “objective reporting”.
Think about how much you have heard in the media in defense of this officer or at least his side of this story.
