Darren Wilson giving many softballs and lead ins by George Stephanopoulos
Darren Wilson's first interview was a godsend for him. The interview was a sham. There were many holes in the story that George Stephanopoulos allowed to slide by with no push back.
The interview starts with George Stephanopoulos attempting to justify Darren Wilson's killing of Michael Brown with a softball leading interview . Wilson claimed he politely asked Michael Brown and his friend to move over from the center of the street. Does anyone believe Wilson was really polite when he approached Michael Brown? Dorian Johnson, Michael Brown's friend said Wilson used an expletive as he shouted at them from his car.
Darren Wilson claims that punches started flying. The pictures reveal no real injuries. If as Wilson said in his grand jury testimony he believed Michael Brown could have been armed it makes no sense that he would have left his car chasing Michael Brown.
Michael Brown was a tall fat man. Darren Wilson a tall muscular man. The Hulk Hogan similarity vs Wilson as a 5yr old is ludicrous. Listen to Stephanopoulos giving Wilson's testimony an assist by 'reminding' him he is figuring out how to get out of 'this' situation of being attacked by Brown.
Darren Wilson must have America believe that the bravado of an 18 year old Michael Brown would not be concerned about a police officer pointing a gun when he states that Brown said he was too much of a pussy to use his gun. A Black man would never tell that to an armed cop. It would be certain death by cop. Stephanopoulos just accepts this at face value.
Wilson was in the safety of his car. If he ever felt threatened he would have used his gas pedal and then called for backup. Stephanopoulos does not even probe his statement of feeling threatened.
Stephanopoulos attempted to make Wilson a victim that simply had to use his gun. After all, he made sure to tell America it was the first time Darren Wilson had ever used his gun on a citizen.
Darren Wilson was subsequently allowed to set up the out of control angry Black man as the predator narrative. Wilson was about to go off script when asked why he did not stay in the car. Stephanopoulos did not even notice. Brown was about to say "He's not" something but then held back.
By now Michael Brown knows this officer will use his gun because he has already shot Brown. Why would Brown turn and lunge for certain death? George does not explore this action.
Finally George confronts Wilson on the likelihood of Brown having a weapon. All credible eye witnesses said Michael Brown had his hands up. Why would the officer be believed. In the heat of 'battle' Wilson asks himself if he can legally shoot this guy. Really? Michael Brown is 30 to 40 feet away and unarmed. Officer Darren Wilson filled him up with lead.
George did not ask Wilson if he heard the tape of the citizen who recorded the gunshots with pauses. It was evident Wilson conformed his answer to that audio when he described the shooting at the end. Brown was hit. Wilson attempts to justify the final head shot, the kill shot, as being a lunge instead of Brown having been injured and falling.
Near the end George offers a fortuitous statement of Wilson never having shot his gun in an attempt to render sympathy. Stephanopoulos lays the path for Wilson to tell America he had to kill the angry Black man, Michael Brown.
Wilson shows he has no conscience as he said he would do it all the same when disengaging would have saved a life. He says it does not haunt him. "It is something that happened."
The rehabilitation of a killer is in full vogue. What is most interesting is the traditional mainstream media is doing it for free.
