CNN aired the video while interviewing Piaget Crenshaw who videotaped it following the shooting.

According to Crenshaw, the footage shows Michael Brown’s body laying in the middle of the street as Wilson stood over him speaking to another officer.


“God bless his soul, the police shot this boy outside my apartment,” Crenshaw could be heard saying on the video while crying. The video also picked up the voices of spectators near the crime scene.

In another portion of the video, an man Crenshaw identified as Wilson could be seen alone, pacing near Brown’s body…

Narrating the video to CNN’s Michaela Pereira, Crenshaw described her account of the scene.

“What we’re looking at is officer Darren Wilson to the right,” she said. “He’s just looking over the body, just looking baffled and bewildered of sorts, like trying to explain to the officer, ‘What have I just done?'”

“And then we get this picture of him pacing back and forth, just like in disbelief,” she said. “It’s like he understands that he just shot this boy in the face and this boy was unarmed.”[su_sky_ad]

    And now there are accounts of people saying he fought with the officer and started to run away and then charged the officer

    • R.J. Carter August 18th, 2014 at 5:14 pm

      There’s another video where someone is overheard saying just that.

      • Jak Crow August 18th, 2014 at 6:54 pm

        Source please.

            Two things come to mind viewing both the posted and linked videos… What was the total number of shots fired by Wilson and where did they come to rest in relation to where Brown was. Also, the toxicology reports on both Brown and hopefully Wilson too.

          • R.J. Carter August 19th, 2014 at 9:34 am

            Yes, that’s all information that will give us a bigger picture, barring anyone coming forward with video from start to finish.

          • Esteban Rey August 19th, 2014 at 1:07 am

            And the source shows that the RWNJ’s have inserted the word “charge” to suit their narrative, though no one at the scene used that word. Funny how the imagination runs while when your agenda demands it.

      • ChrisVosburg August 19th, 2014 at 11:13 am

        I told you yesterday that the fella in the video does not use the word charging, so maybe you should stop saying this.

  2. tiredoftea August 18th, 2014 at 2:56 pm

    Does Mr. Brown’s family really need this on the networks?

  3. Pistol-Packing August 18th, 2014 at 3:01 pm

    Question? Why would any officer attempt to pull a suspect into the car, where he/she is most vulnerable??

    A comment, you were just involved in an altercation of some form. You pulled your weapon and fired. Someone is now dead. Why would you not be pacing a little. One would expect any Normal human being to act in such a manner.

  4. labman57 August 18th, 2014 at 3:04 pm

    Best case scenario for Wilson? He panicked and negligently unloaded his firearm into an unarmed (large scary black) young man who was not being compliant with his commands regarding walking on the sidewalk.

    Worse case scenario? The Ferguson police force routinely targeted the black community for harassment and intimidation, and in an act of rage … Wilson deliberately blew the kid away simply because the young man pissed him off.

    • Pistol-Packing August 18th, 2014 at 3:30 pm

      your first scenario is more plausible.

      • Wilder Dayze August 18th, 2014 at 4:42 pm

        When you’re a white man.

        • Pistol-Packing August 18th, 2014 at 7:02 pm

          And would it have made any difference if the officer was Asian ???

          • Wilder Dayze August 25th, 2014 at 7:48 pm

            Not the officer. The victim.

      • R.J. Carter August 18th, 2014 at 5:13 pm

        Especially if you’ve already been assaulted in your vehicle through the window of your car during which two shots were fired.

        • Esteban Rey August 18th, 2014 at 5:46 pm

          Especially if you are making stuff up for which there is no evidence.

          • R.J. Carter August 18th, 2014 at 5:52 pm

            First and foremost, I don’t have to be “conscientious about avoiding racial slurs” so if that’s aimed at me, you can back that truck up.

            Secondly, I have just as much evidence as you — i.e. eyewitness, at-the-moment testimony — that Brown and Officer Wilson scuffled through the window of his vehicle, and that Brown ran, then turned and ran back toward Officer Wilson. The testimonies conflict, and unless video surfaces of the actual shooting itself, we’re all going to have to wait for the Feds to finish their investigation.

          • Esteban Rey August 18th, 2014 at 6:03 pm

            It’s just neato to talk about this issue with a RWNJ who is not immediately resorting to racial slurring and stereotyping during the conversation. It’s a bit of a turn-off.

            The only evidence you have is some garbled off-camera talk about him coming toward the officer. That could be an attempt by the already wounded man to surrender himself, yet you have leapt to the conclusion that is most convenient for the RWNJ/KKK supported point of view. I am happy to hold off on speculation until there is a full investigation rather than leaping to conclusions as you have done.

          • granpa.usthai August 18th, 2014 at 6:39 pm

            a ‘no fault’ investigation? Do black youths walk on a sidewalk and be in possession of a ‘deadly weapon’ -or – walk in the streets that now may be considered ‘possessing a deadly weapon’? Do you really believe or hope that a ‘justice department’ that can find no wrong doing by ARMED WHITE RACIST that stop Interstate Travel by force of arms, lock and load on federal authorities – sight in on them with loaded weapons, set up road blocks and ‘check points’ where Citizens must show proof of residence will really side with a DEAD unarmed black youth when shot six or more times in daylight in front of witnesses?
            If the Feds don’t take flight upon the arrival of the various WHITE RACIST Klans, as in Nevada, they will no doubt rule this as a ‘tragic accident’ somehow caused by the victim (walking while black in the daytime) – the officer will be returned to duty (as a local jest of showing defiance to the lesser race) and the RACIAL GENOCIDE of black Americans will continue, much to the delight of the overly WHITE RACIST US CONGRESS.

            How do you know there is no evidence of an assault on the policeman? We don’t know yet. You may be correct, or you may be wrong. All this turmoil gets started when people go off half-cocked…assuming they know it all. People say they want “justice”…but true justice takes time. Rushing to judgement is what lynch mobs do.

    • MIAtheistGal August 18th, 2014 at 3:46 pm

      Had to tell at this point. The ferguson police are not helping their side…

  5. NoInfo ToShare August 18th, 2014 at 5:05 pm

    This is heart-wrenching. I can’t imagine the family of this kid to know how their son died. To see someone in your neighborhood, especially a young man killed so ruthlessly and as horrific as this is beyond comprehension.

    And no doubt there will be those (wanting to play the Tough Guy) who will cite this young man’s behavior at the convenience market to justify his execution. But I can remember LOTS of kids (and White if I might add) who did the same thing when I was young, and the cops wouldn’t handle it like this.

    • tiredoftea August 18th, 2014 at 5:28 pm

      Strangely, we were innocent then.

    • ideagal August 20th, 2014 at 11:28 am

      IF the young man was “executed” as you say, for taking cigars from a store, you are correct in your assessment that the shooting was inexcusable. If he was shot because he assaulted the policeman (and remember, he was only 18, but was the size of a professional football linesman) the shooting may be justified. We have to wait and see.

  6. granpa.usthai August 18th, 2014 at 6:19 pm

    pacing back and forth is the natural instincts of a Klan predator who has just made a fresh kill. Note the similar behaviors of this killing and the Martin killing in Florida. Marking the prey, chasing the prey, killing the prey, guarding the kill for the Klan feast.

    • ideagal August 20th, 2014 at 11:12 am

      What an idiot you are! Pacing back and forth is a natural reaction to stress. Fathers-to-be in hospital waiting rooms do it all the time. Klan, Klan, Klan…is that all you think about? Also, a video of the aftermath is useless, unless it picks up the voices of witnesses telling what they actually saw.

    I would be traumatized too. I lived in NYC in 1980 and, one night – while we were eating dinner in an outdoor cafe, a car started heading to our table from the street. So many people screamed that I got up and backed away – Just in time for that car to crash through the low cement fence that separated us from the sidewalk, and crush our table and our chairs. I walked up to the driver (not knowing he had just tried to rob someone at gunpoint and that he had tried to rob a FBI agent), I saw the blood spurting out of him in a very rhytmic pattern. Ta-dum, Ta-dum, Ta-dum.

    I asked, “are you alright?” He did not speak. He looked very angry, but very spent. I held his hand until his last breath. He stared at me, blankly, but angrily, until his last breath. The police arrived shortly thereafter. It was very freaky. I had nightmares for years.

    Cop Road Rage. Nothing more. Nothing less. So sad. It ended two lives that day.

  9. Alex August 19th, 2014 at 10:52 am

    This incident reminds me of the term deer fever, this is when a hunter unloads his gun on the prey!
