Ferguson Resident’s FBI Interview: Darren Wilson Nicknamed ‘Ears’, Known For Hassling People
For the second time, St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch has held back documents related to evidence in Michael Brown’s death at the hands of Ferguson Police officer Darren Wilson.
[su_center_ad]“Clearly, I inadvertently omitted some material,” McCulloch said in a statement. “I apologize for any confusion this may have caused.”
Among the 23 newly-released documents is a transcript of a police interview with Dorian Johnson, a friend of Brown’s, who was with the unarmed teenager when he was shot and killed.
“Once the officer fired the second shot at my friend Big Mike I knew he was struck because he instantly stopped in his tracks,” Johnson told detectives in the interview. “He stopped running. His hands were in the air before he turned around.”
Johnson said that Brown had raised his hands and shouted that he was unarmed to the officers. He also said he heard “more than four” shots fired.
“My friend went all the way down in the fatal [sic] position,” Johnson told detectives. “I watched him take every, several more shots. I watched his facial expression.”
“I see the pain in his face,” he said. “He cannot say nothin’. He’s not screamin’ ‘cause I feel like he’s still in shock because each time, each time he’s shot, he’s tryin’ to get another word out until the fatal shot which, I don’t know what made him stop moving, but he stopped moving and he was on the ground.”
Johnson described feeling sick and nauseated following the shooting. “I seen someone who I was just seconds to talking to, dead,” he said.
Included in the newly released documents, a Ferguson resident told the F.B.I. that Officer Wilson was nicknamed “Ears” in the neighborhood, “cause his ears big”. Wilson was said to have a reputation in the community for “messing with people around here” and “pulling people over.”

I think we should nickname Bob McCulloch “Ears” for “messing with people.” [su_csky_ad]
