'A 5-Year-Old Holding Hulk Hogan': Wilson Describes His Struggle With Brown
In his testimony to the grand jury, Officer Darren Wilson described feeling like "a five-year-old holding Hulk Hogan" during his Aug. 9 struggle with Michael Brown.
“When I grabbed him, the only way I can describe it is I felt like a five-year-old holding Hulk Hogan," Wilson said in the testimony that has been released by the St. Louis County Prosecutor's Office. "The face that he had was looking straight through me like I wasn’t even there … He started to lean forward as he got that close, like he was going to just tackle me, just go right through me.”
On "America's Newsroom," retired LAPD detective Mark Fuhrman reacted to the grand jury deciding not to indict Wilson in Brown's death, an outcome he called "very predictable."
Fuhrman said that Brown was the suspect from beginning to end, plus Brown precipitated every action that was used against him and every contact with Wilson.
“Right is right, and the evidence is what it is,” Fuhrman said. “The grand jury found that Michael Brown was the aggressor, was the suspect. The prosecutor didn’t use those words, but every description was exactly that: Michael Brown was the suspect in this case and Officer Wilson was the victim.”
As for what happens to Wilson now, Fuhrman said the officer's law enforcement career has been stolen from him because someone targeted him, not the other way around.
Now, Wilson will likely be charged with civil rights violations and a wrongful death suit, but it is unlikely anything will come of those, according to Fuhrman.
"The thing that people are missing here is you have … parts of a community that are supporting Michael Brown absent of the fact that Michael Brown committed not only a robbery, but attacked a uniformed officer on-duty and tried to kill him. That for some reason escapes everybody.”
