FIGURES. Liberal Media Uses Convicted Drug Dealer as Source to Bash Darren Wilson
Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson was given a commendation in February of this year, four years into his job there.
In the video WIlson was given the commendation “in recognition of outstanding police work while investigating a suspicious vehicle call.”
Wilson arrested drug dealer Christopher Brooks who threatened him and slapped at him before he was subdued by Wilson.
Today Yahoo.com used convicted drug dealer Christopher Brooks as their source to bash Officer Darren Wilson.
Drug dealer Brooks said he was roughed up during his arrest – when he threatened and slapped at Wilson.
A suspected drug dealer alleges that the Ferguson, Mo., policeman who killed Michael Brown used excessive force against him last year in an arrest that earned him commendation from the police department, the man’s attorney told Yahoo News.
Officer Darren Wilson arrested Christopher Brooks on Feb. 28, 2013, after catching him and another man allegedly packaging marijuana to sell while sitting in a car in Brooks’ grandmother’s driveway.
Yahoo News obtained the full police report from Brooks’ lawyer, Nick Zotos, after the Ferguson department refused to release an un-redacted version.
According to the report, the men exited the car but Brooks wouldn’t give up his keys so the officer could search the locked PT Cruiser.
“Brooks slapped my hand away,” Wilson wrote. “Brooks was consistently yelling for his cousin, who was now on the front porch, to help him and asking him to ‘get me.’ ”
The officer took control of Brooks’ wrist and arm, but he “was resisting all control and refused to follow all commands given,” Wilson wrote. The officer called for backup because he said the situation was “growing increasing hostile.”
Zotos, a veteran St. Louis defense attorney, says his client remembers it a different way.
“The officer was physical with him, roughed him up,” Zotos told Yahoo News. “[Brooks] would not consent to a search of his vehicle, so [Wilson] forcibly took his keys from him.”
This is all they got folks.
They’ve stooped to so low that they are publishing the testimony of a convicted drug dealer to discredit Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson.
