I would have indicted Wilson. Here’s why.

Michael Brown gunshot wounds.

Might as well throw my two cents in on the Michael Brown shooting, because just reading over the description of the entry and exit wounds, I have a big question about Darren Wilson’s story.

Brown had an entry wound in the upper inside of his right arm. The only way that could happen is if his palms were facing Wilson, either up or out.

But Wilson had said, “And, he started running at me. During his first stride, he took his right hand put it under his shirt into his waistband. And I ordered him to stop and get on the ground again. He didn’t. I fired multiple shots. After I fired the multiple shots, I paused a second, yelled at him to get on the ground again, he was still in the same state. Still charging, hand still in his waistband, hadn’t slowed down. I fired another set of shots. … He gets about eight to 10 feet away, he’s still coming at me in the same way. I fired more shots.

So to review: Still charging, right hand still in his waistband.

Okay, stand up, jog across the room and put your right hand in your waistband while you move. Really. Do it.

Where was the inside of your right arm?

Against your body.

If Brown’s hand was in his waistband, his palm would be turned toward himself, his arm would have been close to his body, and no way could a bullet have entered through the underside of his arm.

So either the sequence of events unfolded such that he had pulled his hand out of his waistband and Wilson’s bullet hit him at that exact split second before he could get his hands all the way out or up, or Wilson is full of crap about the whole waistband part and just wanted to paint it like “I thought he was reaching for a gun.”

Well, which is it?

That is the question the prosecutor should have asked, and that question is why I would have indicted Wilson.

It’s late, so ostriches.

Could you just imagine baby ostriches running around your house? I like the sound of their feet on the carpet.

Hey, this is what I look at on YouTube at 3:30 a.m. It could be worse.
