Now that the coroner's findings show that the cop who shot Michael Brown did so at least once from a couple feet away through the top of the head while standing over the top of him.
Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon early Monday ordered the National Guard deployed to the town of Ferguson, where another night of violence saw police pelted with bottles and Molotov cocktails and looters rampaging through local businesses.snip
The executive order directs the resources of the National Guard “to help restore peace and order and to protect the citizens of Ferguson.”
Police said there were signs of a pre-planned and coordinated attempt to disrupt the city and launch an advance on the police command post not far from the scene of the shooting.
“There were shootings, vandalism and other acts of violence that clearly appear not to have been spontaneous but premeditated criminal acts,” Missouri Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson told reporters early Sunday.
“The catalyst was not civil disobedience, but pre-planned agitation,” he said.
The new street eruptions came as a private autopsy revealed that Brown had been shot at least six times, including twice in the head.
Anthony Gray, an attorney for the Brown family, said a diagram provided by New York forensics expert Dr. Michael Baden, commissioned by the family to do an independent examination, revealed details of the bullets that struck Brown’s body during his Aug. 9 encounter with a white police officer.
The fact that one of the shots struck the top of Brown’s head, Gray said, was significant.
“To have a shot that’s at a 90-degree angle from the top of his skull to the bottom of his chin, almost vertical, that sounds like an officer standing over him,” Gray said.
We shall see whether or not the National Guard will be pulling triggers shortly.
This has gone way beyond mere protest at this point and some people down there are gearing up for outright killing.
This is the new normal kiddies,
Pretty soon you will start seeing this,
The pendulum swings two ways.
