Witness intimidation of Ferguson witnesses to Michael Brown?
There have been published reports of witnesses that say Michael Brown “bum rushed” officer Darren Wilson prior to getting shot. Those are just reports.
Will they actually take the stand and testify to that knowing that they will become pariahs to many in the community of Ferguson who believe the narrative that a White Cop shot an unarmed 18 year old for no reason?
It would take an incredible amount of courage! A lot of social pressure will be brought to bear and their safety might be a definite concern to what they say on the stand. In similar cases the government offers witnesses, witness protection program. But, will these people get that offer?
