Construction workers new witnesses to Michael Brown shooting


Workers who were witnesses provide new perspective on Michael Brown shooting

Among the claims that ignited the fury over the fatal shooting of Michael Brown were that Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson chased the unarmed teen on foot, shot at him as he ran away, then fired a barrage of fatal shots after Brown had turned around with his hands up.

Almost all of the witnesses who shared these accounts with media either knew Brown; lived at or near the Canfield Green apartments, where the shooting occurred; or were visiting friends or relatives there.

But there were two outsiders who happened to be working outside at the apartment complex on Aug. 9 ó two men from a company in Jefferson County ó who heard a single gunshot, looked up from their work and witnessed the shooting.

Whoís the Israeli governmentís best spokesperson? Ron Dermer? Michael Oren? Bibi himself? Nope. Itís Hillary Clinton.
