Autopsy Shows Michael Brown Was Struck at Least 6 Times
There is more - http://www.nytimes.com/...FERGUSON, Mo. — Michael Brown, the unarmed black teenager who was killed by a police officer, sparking protests around the nation, was shot at least six times, including twice in the head, a preliminary private autopsy performed on Sunday found.
One of the bullets entered the top of Mr. Brown’s skull, suggesting his head was bent forward when it struck him and caused a fatal injury, according to Dr. Michael M. Baden, the former chief medical examiner for the City of New York, who flew to Missouri on Sunday at the family’s request to conduct the separate autopsy. It was likely the last of bullets to hit him, he said.
Mr. Brown, 18, was also shot four times in the right arm, he said, adding that all the bullets were fired into his front.
This is what is happening in Ferguson, Mo tonight. Now.
All hell has broken out. I'll keep adding information as it comes in. This is not what I had planned for this diary tonight. Pray for the people of Ferguson.

So they're racially profiling the press? Letting white reporters back in & not black reporters? My head is spinning. #Ferguson— MH (@SirMikeH) August 18, 2014
