A photo showing the injuries of Ferguson, Mo. police officer, Darren Wilson, from his encounter with Michael Brown Jr. shortly before Brown’s death on August 9, 2014 is a hoax. The image is being circulated under false pretenses and does not depict Officer Darren Wilson of the Ferguson MO Police Department. The facebook post includes the following text:
“Why aren’t the media releasing the photos of Police Officer Darren Wilson’s injuries after he was assaulted by “the unarmed black teenager”? He was punched in the face before he emptied his weapon into the drugged “unarmed teenager”—here is what a broken eye socket looks like”
“Since it’s unlikely the controlled left-extremist media will show you this photo, here it is. Look what that 18 year old did to this police officer, but I guess Holder and Sharpton forgot to mention this. He was slammed repeatedly in the face before he emptied his weapon into the drugged “unarmed teenager” when the thug approached to hit him some more—here is what a broken eye socket looks like:”
The photo actually shows injured motocross driver Jim McNeil, who broke several bones in his face during a practice ride with a friend and was taken in 2006. Posted on this site in 2010: http://etnies.com/blog/2006/10/10/jim-mcneil-face-plants-ouch/
The false photo above began circulating as a mislabeled pic of Darren Wilson, on or about September 2, 2014.
