Michael Brown Homicide: Eyewitnesses to Justice Denied

mikeThere are multiple witnesses to the Mike Brown homicide, most call it murder:
“It just seems to have upset the officer,” … Mike was running, and the officer
started shooting.: After Michael turned around to tell the officer he was unarmed,
the officer continued to walk up on him and shoot him until he crumpled to the ground.”
This same officer had previously been fired for acrimonious behavior in Jennings.
I see no reason why Mike Brown should have been executed.

Above… (CNN) — Two white men, shocked at what they saw, describe an unarmed teenager with his hands up in the air as he’s gunned down by a police officer. They were contractors doing construction work in Ferguson, Missouri, on the day Michael Brown was killed.

And the men, who asked not to be identified after CNN contacted them, said they were about 50 feet away from Officer Darren Wilson when he opened fire. An exclusive cell phone video captures their reactions during the moments just after the shooting.

From his window, he watched and live tweeted the last minutes of Brown’s life, leaving behind a testimony that went viral on social media. So far, Freeman says he has spoken only with the FBI about what he saw. Now he has chosen to put his testimony to music — the medium through which he says he is most comfortable expressing himself.

“He had his f**n hands up,” one of the men says in the video.
The man told CNN he heard one gunshot, then another shot about 30 seconds later.
“The cop didn’t say get on the ground. He just kept shooting,” the man said.
That same witness described the gruesome scene, saying he saw Brown’s “brains come out of his head,” again stating, “his hands were up.”
