Sunny Hostin, a legal analyst, said this morning that Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson's testimony of the Michael Brown shooting was “very fanciful.”
“When I grabbed him, the only way I can describe it is I felt like a 5-year-old holding onto Hulk Hogan,” Officer Wilson told a grand jury. “That’s just how big he felt and how small I felt just from grasping his arm.”
Wilson also claimed that Brown looked “like a demon, that’s how angry he looked.”
Appearing on CNN today, Hostin added that St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch treated Wilson with "kid gloves" and asked him "softball" questions about his testimony, noted RawStory.com (video below).
Hostin said that Officer Wilson didn't have to provide an immediate statement to the Ferguson Police Department, which gave him a month to think about it. Hostin added that none of the witnesses backed up Officer Wilson’s claim that he told Brown to lay down on the ground twice.
However, American Family Association (AFA) news director Fred Jackson gave a completely different opinion that suggested Brown deserved to die for allegedly stealing cigars and assaulting Officer Wilson (audio below).
According to RightWingWatch.org, Jackson guest-hosted the AFA “Sandy Rios in the Morning” radio show where he made his observations.
"We have to get back to the reality; there are moral truths, and when people break those moral truths and decide to violate them, there are consequences," said Jackson. "On that day, August 9th in Ferguson, Missouri, when Michael Brown went into that convenience store and stole that box of cigars, he was making a moral decision."
"... He went on to assault police officer Darren Wilson," added Jackson. "He believed, Michael Brown, apparently, that he was allowed to do that. It is that mentality of entitlement, that mentality that says, ‘You have your truth; I have mine,’ that I believe is at the core of this."
Jackson also claimed that Brown disobeyed the absolute truths laid out by God and concluded, “God says there will be consequences.” Jackson blamed Brown’s death on “the breakdown of the family” and not having a "dad figure around" (audio below).
"What we’ve been talking about this morning, the existence of absolute truth, and that is what’s under attack today," stated Jackson.
"Absolute truth is defined by scripture, the Bible, God’s word, that’s how it’s defined, and when you violate that, there are consequences. Now you may get away with it for a while, for a period, but God says there will be consequences," added Jackson.
"Both our callers, I think, addressing the crux of the problem here this morning is the family, is the breakdown of the family. When you do not have a dad figure around, there is not someone there in authority to demonstrate there are consequences to violating the rules. If you don’t have that presence in the family, you’re going to have problems."
