Faulkner: 'Everyone Is Innocent Until Proven Guilty, Including Officer Darren Wilson'
Today, the "Outnumbered" panel discussed the most recent news from Ferguson, Missouri, following the death of unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was shot six times by police officer Darren Wilson.
The resulting public outcry and protests have led to Gov. Jay Nixon sending in the National Guard to restore peace amid violence and looting.
Today's #oneluckyguy Brian Kilmeade reacted to an earlier press conference on Brown's autopsy, which Kilmeade said was revealing because it starts to offer details surrounding the shooting, including the preliminary evidence that the fatal shots to Brown's head were the last ones fired.
Andrea Tantaros said that what she garnered from Dr. Baden's press conference was that no one series of events is supported by this one autopsy. It will take time for a thorough investigation to be completed.
Harris Faulkner, who was on-air in Missouri for many years and knows the state very well, had strong words for those protesters who are turning to violence and looting.
“If you are unlawfully breaking a state-imposed curfew, you deserve to be accused of a crime and go to jail, period," Faulkner said. "Peaceful protesting is protected. This is not.”
She added that outrage in the Ferguson community is understandable, but the investigation is ongoing.
“Everybody is assured that they are innocent until proven guilty of a crime, including this police officer," she said. "We still don’t know all of the facts. We’re starting to get some.”
