So the autopsy is out and the shots came from the front — although one shot is arguably ambiguous.
Hot Air has video of the Brown family lawyer claiming that that shot, a shot to the head, was “back to front” — but that’s meaningless given the specific facts. It’s a shot that enters the top of the head and comes out the right eye socket. Unless the officer was standing directly over a kneeling Brown, which nobody has said to my knowledge, all it really means is that the top of Brown’s head was pointing towards the officer when the shot was fired. A head can move around quite a bit in a fluid situation. We really can’t know whether from the angle of the shot whether Brown was falling backward, or whether he had his head down and was facing forward.
