The Ferguson cop was beaten to the point of broken bones, according to recent reports.
New details of the altercation that took place on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri on August 9th seem to come to light each day. The investigation continues, but the tensions are still running high with accusations on both sides of the table.
On Wednesday, new reports stated that Darren Wilson, the accused policeman, suffered severe facial injuries, including an eye socket fracture, and was nearly beaten unconscious by Michael Brown before the confrontation that ended Brown's life.
A source close to the situation reported to Fox News that “the Assistant (Police) Chief took him to the hospital, his face all swollen on one side.” He continued, “He was beaten very severely.”
This source states that the facts of the case are this: Wilson was coming off of another call in a nearby neighborhood when he stopped to tell Michael Brown and his friend to stop walking in the middle of the street.
“They ignored him and the officer started to get out of the car to tell them to move," the source said of Ferguson cop Darren Wilson. "They shoved him right back in, that’s when Michael Brown leans in and starts beating Officer Wilson in the head and the face."
And that's when the alleged struggle for Wilson's gun took place and it was fired somehow in the midst of that struggle. It's still not clear who pulled the trigger or if it went off accidentally.
Brown then walked away, but as Darren Wilson stepped out and ordered Michael Brown to freeze, Brown allegedly put his hands up and said, "What, you're going to shoot me?"
He then charged the Ferguson cop, who fired at Brown with one of those shots being fatal.
Wilson is "traumatized, scared for his life and his family, injured and terrified" that a grand jury will "make some kind of example out of him," the source said.
The anguish and tension that this case has caused for the Ferguson cop, the city of Ferguson, and all American citizens is beyond what anyone could have imagined. Hopefully those involved can find closure after all of this mess is over.
