Letter Concerning Michael Brown Killing in Ferguson

St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney McCulloch,

In fairness to Darren Wilson, I wanted to be sure you were aware of a candid conversation caught on a cell phone video immediately after the killing of Michael Brown. Beginning at 6:00 of this video, you can hear one fellow explain to another what he had just seen concerning the shooting of Michael Brown.

"how 'd he get from here to here?"
     "because he ran ... police was still in the truck"
     "how his body come this way?"
     "he's like over the truck ... then he ran"
     "police got out and ran after him ... next thing I know he come back toward the cop ..."
     "police had his gun drawn already ..."
     "oh, the police shot him?"
      "police kept dumpin it ... I'm thinking the police was missing him. The dude started running, kept coming towards the police." (7:15)

What the witness says is consistent with what an alleged friend of officer Wilson said happened on the Dana Loesch Show.
