Kudos to Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit
This story first broken by Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit is being confirmed by major news outlets. While this story is still dependent on the sources telling the truth (obviously this news is only as good as the source and it is impossible to confirm without the Ferguson Police Department or Darren Wilson releasing the medical records), it appears to be a major scoop by Gateway Pundit.
No word if Democrat Governor Jay Nixon is backing down on his pledge to prosecute Officer Wilson. It usually helps to do an investigation impartially and objectively before you charge a person with murder but that does not seem to be much of a concern to Democrats like Jay Nixon.
I do not know if this shooting was justified or not. Obviously if the events Jim Hoft is reporting turn out to be true, that would be significant for finding the shooting justified. But I recognize there has to be a full investigation. It also needs to be objective.
And yet we still have celebrity assholes like Spike Lee hoping things really blow up in Ferguson. Really Spike, easy for you to say since you don't live in Ferguson.
And as Instapundit notes, the narrative is breaking down in Ferguson.
As Smitty notes: Noting Instapundit, given all the guns in Missouri, the casualty count is pretty light in Ferguson
Smitty notes it is almost like they have the script for this already drafted, great comment by Larry at Instapundit.
Wombat: First night of calm in Ferguson since Michael Brown's death
It is reported Wilson did not suffer an eye socket fracture
Now it is reported again by WaPo that he did suffer an eye socket fracture (evidence)?
