RUSH: Michael Brown’s gunshot wounds. Basically we found out that everything we thought about this from the get-go was true. You know what this St. Louis incident, this Ferguson, Missouri, incident illustrates? It illustrates this. Smearing and destroying a police officer was necessary and appropriate to Democrats in order to create mobs and property destruction and voter registration, and to turn out the vote.

It is clear the individual means nothing to the left. Individual rights mean nothing. Innocent until proven guilty means nothing to the left. In the end, all that matters is the end. The end justifies the means. It’s the agenda.

So here’s a cop, doesn’t matter he’s a human being. Doesn’t matter. We’re gonna destroy the guy. We’re gonna destroy the officer. It was necessary. It was appropriate for us to advance our voter turnout agenda, is what the civil rights coalition’s essentially said by virtue of their actions in St. Louis. Politically incorrect facts are stubborn things.

The autopsy shows that Michael Brown, the gentle giant, was shot at close range. CNN, the New York Times, are all reporting this. In fact, CNN, the network that maybe has done the most to advance the Democrat leftist agenda in Ferguson, Missouri, a reporter was threatened and run out of town in a stand-up interview last night, full-on intimidation against the network that’s done the most to help them. And the fact that the autopsy shows that the gentle giant was shot at close range tends to support any testimony that there was some kind of a scuffle in the police car, and those are the records of CNN legal analyst Danny Cevallos.

He furthermore said, “If so, that tends to support Officer WilsonÂ’s testimony and his justification for using deadly force.” If the gentle giant was in the car, there’s only one way that could happen. He forced his way in. The police officer didn’t invite him into the car. The police officer didn’t drag him in. (interruption) What? Well, nothing is gonna happen to the eyewitnesses because all this is gonna be seen as a failed political effort. There isn’t gonna be any criminal act.

The protesters are now threatening more of this, if they don’t get an indictment, and if they don’t get a trial. The protesters from all over the country, once again, descended on Ferguson, and they’re threatening the town, the police officer, people in positions of authority, if they don’t get their indictment, if they don’t get a trial. They’re openly saying this.

So you got a lot of eyewitnesses who’ve been shown to have lied. Nothing’s gonna happen. You know it as well as I do nothing’s gonna happen. Nobody’s gonna have the guts to do anything about it. They’re gonna think, “What’s it worth?” It’s not worth it. Gonna have trouble as it is if this turns out the way they think it’s gonna turn out, based on the way the evidence is going.


See, the facts are coming out. It’s actually a wonderful opportunity for the president and the attorney general, to set the record straight. It’s a wonderful opportunity for some leadership, but that isn’t gonna happen. This is a political defeat. This isn’t even a matter of law. This is a political defeat. That is why I say smearing and destroying a police officer, that’s what they had to do. That’s what they had to try.

It was necessary, it was appropriate to Democrats in order to create mobs, property damage, which leads to voter registration and voter turnout. And we know from news earlier this week that if the black population doesn’t turn out in great numbers in November, it’s bad news for the Democrats. That’s what Ferguson will still be about.

But the president and the attorney general, I mean, normally they could take the occasion here and set the record straight. They could be pleased to calm down what some might think now is unjustified anger of community organizers and protesters. In other words, they could sue for calm. They could sue for peace. The president, the attorney general, could use their authority, their credibility, their dignity, and their positions, to call for calm. Because the truth is the ultimate goal here, right? Isn’t it, the truth, isn’t that what everybody’s always wanted from the beginning of this?

No.

See, that’s not the case. No, what’s wanted here is fairness and justice, but fairness and justice are defined within the prism of the Democrat Party and its agenda. Fairness and justice have nothing to do with what you think fairness and justice are. Fairness and justice is the right outcome. So now the facts are coming out. Does this mean the networks and the websites that fanned the flames of violent protests, will they come on the air, will they apologize?

No.

Will all the false assumptions and smears be retracted?

No.


Because, you see, the Drive-Bys are gone. By definition, the Drive-Bys have already been there. The Drive-Bys, they stirred it up, they created the chaos, and they’re already down the road on the next story, and now it’s left to other people to fix the mess that they helped make in Ferguson, Missouri.

“Michael Brown’s gunshot wounds included a shot in the hand at close range, his official autopsy shows, according to an analysis reported by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.” Remember the family asked for — was it one or two autopsies? Well, there have been three different autopsies here. By the way, the autopsy also shows that he was using marijuana, and the evidence looks pretty good, almost irrefutable, that his hands were not up. He was not surrendering.

But the detail about the shot in the hand “could lend credence–” I’m reading here from CNN’s page. I wanted to go as far left as I could to find this story for you. “The detail could lend credence to Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson’s account that he and the unarmed African-American teenager scuffled at his patrol car before Brown was shot and killed.” He’s always maintained that. The eyewitnesses, “It never happened. I mean, guy was running away, stopped, and put his hands up and surrendered, and I saw it, and we’ve got it on video,” and all that stuff is all out the window now.

“Wilson told investigators that during a struggle for his pistol inside a police SUV, Brown pressed the barrel of Wilson’s gun against the officer’s hip, the Post-Dispatch reported, citing a source with knowledge of his statements. The officer tried to prevent Brown from reaching the trigger, the source told the newspaper, and when he thought he had control, he fired. But Brown’s hand was blocking the mechanism, the Post-Dispatch reported. Wilson said he fired two shots, and Brown was hit in the hand and ran. He told investigators that he fired again when Brown turned back and charged at him.” And there are eyewitnesses that that indeed happened.

“Brown’s blood was found on the officer’s uniform and inside his police car, law enforcement sources told CNN this week. Those sources corroborated details first reported by The New York Times. At least one of the wounds Brown suffered is consistent with a struggle and appeared to have been inflicted at close range, according to a different source with first-hand knowledge of the investigation.”

It’s not gonna be explained away. This isn’t gonna matter. The calls for an indictment are gonna continue. The calls for a trial are gonna continue. The threats, if they don’t get a trial and an indictment, will continue. Nobody’s gonna be held to account here. I know you think they should be. I know you think for anybody else they would be, but that’s not gonna happen here. The evidence is already in that that isn’t gonna happen.

Again, the CNN legal analyst, Danny Cevallos, “That tends to support any testimony that there was some kind of scuffle in the police car. And if so, that tends to support Officer Wilson’s testimony and his justification for using deadly force.”

St. Louis Post-Dispatch story: official autopsy shows gentle giant had close-range wound to his hand, marijuana in his system, and this information is from the first autopsy. This information is all in the first autopsy, the one the family refused to accept and wanted to do over. There have now been three autopsies. The results of the autopsies support Officer Wilson’s story completely, and they also completely contradict the pro-gentle giant witnesses.

The first autopsy was performed the day after the gentle giant’s death. That was August 10th. Why is it that we are only getting the details from this autopsy today? August 10th. August, September, October. Two months here. Why has it taken two months to get the details of this first autopsy, hmm? ‘Cause it just wasn’t what was needed. They had to do a couple more, see what they could produce.

“Ferguson Protesters Shut Down CNN Broadcast Because ItÂ’s ‘Zionist’ — Angry protesters in Ferguson, Mo., shut down CNNÂ’s live broadcast Monday night after repeatedly heckling the reporter and cameraperson for working for an organization ‘run by AIPAC’ and ‘Zionists.'”
