The newly surfaced dispatch calls and surveillance videos in the shooting case involving 18-year-old Michael Brown has exposed some strong clues suggesting a different story against Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, who had shot dead the unarmed youth.
The video footage shows the Ferguson cop leaving for the hospital hours after he fatally shot at Brown. The St. Louis-Post Dispatch has obtained the videos.
Brown was shot six times by Wilson.
The killing of the teen has sparked weeks of protest in the Missouri city. The case is currently being looked by the Department of Justice.
The footage shows 28-year-old Wilson leaving the police station with another cop and a police union lawyer two hours after the unfortunate incident.
In a statement, the attorneys representing the Brown family said,”Information was leaked from within the police department that Wilson was severely beaten and suffered an orbital eye socket ‘blowout,’ indicating that Michael Brown somehow deserved to die. From the video released today it would appear the initial descriptions of his injuries were exaggerated.”
According to the lawyers, the audio tapes has not show Wilson making any form of connection with Brown or an incident occurring at a convenience store just minutes before that cop later said Brown was involved in.
Moreover, the dispatch calls has revealed that how quickly the things between Wilson and Brown escalated.
In the video, Wilson was heard extending help to the other units in locating a robbery suspect.
“You guys need me?” he was heard saying in the recordings.
10 minutes later, another cop was heard asking for help in controlling the scene where Brown was shot.
“Get us several more units over here. There’s going to be a problem,” said the officer in the video.
A woman was also seen crying in the background in the dispatched call.
