Messaging Service Verifies Alleged Audio Recording Of Michael Brown Shooting

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/glide-authenticates-alleged-michael-brown-audio

"The company that runs the video messaging service that purportedly captured audio of the Michael Brown shooting has confirmed the authenticity of the recording.

The audio of the shooting incident, which occurred in Ferguson, Mo., on August 9, was reportedly recorded unknowingly by a nearby man who was using the messaging service Glide. Only later, after the shooting became an international story, did the man realize he had captured the audio of what sounded like gunshots. But questions remained about whether the recording itself was authentic. CNN first aired the recording on Monday."

The messaging service also confirmed that the audio recording was real:

Certainly a game changer in the case, I think.

Police Murder Man With Toy Gun in Wal-Mart.

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/08/26/video-shows-police-shot-ohio-man-on-sight-as-he-leaned-on-toy-gun-in-walmart-attorney-says/

"Surveillance video shows an Ohio man talking on a cell phone, leaning on a toy gun, and facing away from officers moments before police shot and killed him in a Walmart store, according to an attorney for the man’s family.

John Crawford III died Aug. 5 after police were called to Walmart in Beavercreek, near Dayton, by another shopper who reported a man carrying what appeared to be an AR-15 rifle.

The 22-year-old Crawford was instead carrying an unpackaged MK-177 (.177 caliber) BB/pellet rifle he picked up in the store’s toy department.

Police claim Crawford ignored their commands to drop the weapon, and the former Marine who called in the report and witnessed the shooting said Crawford “looked like he was going to go violently.”

But attorney Michael Wright said surveillance video from the incident, which Ohio’s attorney general allowed him to watch with Crawford’s family, contradicted those accounts.

“John was doing nothing wrong in Walmart, nothing more, nothing less than shopping,” Wright said.

The attorney said surveillance video showed Crawford facing away from officers, talking on the phone, and leaning on the pellet gun like a cane when he was “shot on sight” in a “militaristic” response by police."

Just throwing more evidence for America's out of control police departments on the pile.
