Something about this entire story Dorian has manufactured is concealing something else. What that “else” might be, is yet to be discovered – However, Treeper/contributor Mike Sylwester has assembled a solid hypothesis outlining part of the issue:
By Mike Sylwester: Several witnesses say that Dorian Johnson was standing by a Monte Carlo car that was stopped by the curb, just east of Darren Wilson’s police vehicle, when Michael Brown was fatally shot. Despite that excellent viewpoint, however, Johnson was not able to describe the shooting correctly in his subsequent statements. Johnson’s evident failure to see the shooting is a major mystery in the controversy about this incident.
Below, I will provide evidence that the Monte Carlo’s two occupants allowed Johnson to hide down in front of the passenger seat. From that hiding position, Johnson did not see the fatal shooting. Furthermore, the two occupants drove away with Johnson still hiding there. The two occupants lied that they did not let Johnson into the car and they denied Johnson’s request to drive him away from the scene.
The Monte Carlo passenger’s grand-jury testimony is recorded in Grand Jury Volume 7, beginning on page 152.
The passenger is a male, and the driver is a woman. The Monte Carlo was following Darren Wilson’s police vehicle, traveling west on Canfield Drive. When Wilson stopped and backed up to confront Michael Brown and Dorian Johnson, the Monte Carlo stopped close behind the police vehicle. When the first gunshot was fired inside the police vehicle, the Monte Carlo backed up and stopped along the curb in front of Piaget Crenshaw’s apartment.
Because the police vehicle’s windows were tinted, the Monte Carlo’s two occupants could not see, through the police vehicle, what was happening on the driver side. The passenger could see Brown’s feet and so knew that Brown was doing something at the driver door.
On pages 180-181 the passenger reports that while Brown was doing something at that door, Dorian Johnson moved slowly to the street’s other, south side and then gradually moved faster away along the street’s south side.
I basically saw him [Johnson] slow and walking away from … going kind of slow across the street, and he ran off real quick. I guess not wanting to be part of it [Brown’s actions at the door]. …
He [Johnson] didn’t run then. …. As this [Brown’s actions at the door] is happening, he [Johnson] is gradually slow across [the street] and just end up running – it wasn’t no full-fledge run – [more] like [fast] walking.
On pages 163-164, the passenger describes what happened after the first gunshot was fired in the police vehicle. The driver backed up the Monte Carlo, and both occupants opened their doors so that they could lie low in their seats. As Brown (not Johnson) ran past the Monte Carlo, the passenger heard a second shot. Then Johnson appeared suddenly by the car’s rear wheel on the passenger’s side.
So, as I’m ducking down, catty-corner from my eye I see Dorian. I don’t know how he got from over here [pointing to the street’s south side] … being all the way over here [the street’s south side]. ….
The second shot I heard [as Brown ran past the Monte Carlo], I end up seeing, ducking down, and seeing him [Johnson]. Like, who is this? And I end up recognizing who it was.
(Did he say anything when he came around to the side of the car?) Not at that time. Not yet.
Then the passenger described how, after about five seconds, Wilson got out of his police vehicle and then ran past the Monte Carlo, chasing Brown.
Then something very strange happened. Both the driver and the passenger “blacked out” for a few seconds.
The driver’s grand-jury testimony is recorded in Grand Jury Volume 12. On pages 118-121 and 123-125 and 129-130, the driver describes how she blacked out after the second shot, when she heard as Brown ran past her Monte Carlo.
Her black-out lasted only a few seconds, after which she was able to watch the fatal shooting lucidly in her rear-view window. She mentioned that Johnson was down by her side after her black-out, as she thus watched the fatal shooting.
When he [Brown] started running, I ducked down. I got all the way towards the ground in the car. …. Me and [the passenger] ducked. In the process of us ducking, that’s when I heard like a second shot. And after this, that’s when Michael Brown had already ran past the car. ….. When I heard the second gunshot, my head was down. ….
Once I proceeded to get up and look, that’s when I saw the officer running directly down the street after him. ….
That’s when I proceeded to look out my rear-view mirror.
(Are you talking about the mirror that’s in the center of your window?) Yes, ma’am.
(You are not talking about the windows on the outside?) No, the window. ….
(Do you know where Dorian is at this point?) Dorian was actually on the side. At that time, I didn’t even look no more, I didn’t look down. …. [!!!!!!!!]
(At what point did you black out?) …. I went down for a short period of time. …. And then I instantly got up, and I got to looking.
I just went, basically, just went blank. I can’t describe it. …. I could still hear, but everything just went blank. I can’t even explain it. I was just in shock. …. I just lost focus. I was just, like, down a little bit.
It was real short. It was short enough to where I could see everything else …. after the second shot.
(Then you get back up. You are looking out the rear view, and you see Mike Brown turn around with his hands up and the officer fires several shots at him?) Yes, ma’am.
(Have you ever blacked out before?) No, because I have never been around nothing like that before in my life. ….
(Do you think you lost consciousness?) I don’t know. I can’t explain.
(How long do you think it was that you were blacked out?) Like seconds. …. Probably about two — one or two seconds.
In Grand Jury Volume 7, pages 165 and 168, the passenger describes how he too blacked out likewise. When the passenger’s black-out ended, he found himself in the Monte Carlo’s back seat, looking out the back window.
Then I end up looking out the back window. …. I blanked out or whatnot, because I’m not hearing anything. I didn’t hear nothing from the time that they was at the truck. We [the passenger and driver] are both [blacked out]. …. I guess he [Wilson] had got down the street some [distance], a little after him [Brown] or whatnot [while we were blacked out]. ….
When I’m looking out the back window, [the driver] is looking out her little rear-view mirror.
[The passenger describes looking out the back seat as Wilson shoots Brown fatally.]
I’m in the back seat. [!!!!!!!!]
He [Brown] is on the ground. I can’t see no more after that …. unless I got out [of the car]. ….
I got [car] doors are still open.
So, the first thing Dorian say, can you take me down here?
I think that Johnson’s expression “down here” means that Johnson was lying down low in or in front of the Monte Carlo’s passenger seat, while the passenger had moved into the back seat.
As the Monte Carlo’s driver and passenger were blacking out and as the passenger moved into the back seat, Witness #12 [Michael Brady] was watching Johnson climb into the Monte Carlo. Witness #12 described this in his the document titled “Interview Witness 12 interview #3“, pages 2-3, 5-7, 12-13, 15.
I goes in the house, goes back into my bedroom … Like another two, three, minutes later I hear
a altercation outside. And looks out the window and see a guy, Michael Brown, at the driver window of the Ferguson police car. …. All of a sudden I see Michael Brown and his friend runs away from the Ferguson police car.
The friend just ducks behind the first car that was parked off to the side, which is like a two-door Monte Carlo. … His buddy was … hiding behind the trunk of the car, of the two-door, white Monte
The passenger door was open. …. I see him kinda hops in.
(Did you see him get inside the car?) Yeah, he did.
(He did get inside the car?) He did. He did. …..
(His buddy with the dreadlocks?) Yeah.
(He got into the car, the white Monte Carlo?) Yeah, the white Monte Carlo, because the door was open. …
(Did you see this guy get into the car?) Yeah, I did see that. … The door was open. …. I guess after when he [Wilson] got done shooting, I guess whoever that was driving [the Monte Carlo) told him [Johnson], “Let’s go”, because he’s afraid for his life. I’m sure of that.
(So, you’re positive he got in the car and he left in that car?) Yeah.
(Where are you at?) Now I’m outside.
(Are you in that horseshoe section?) Yea, exactly .. in the middle. … on my balcony.
The Monte Carlo passenger goes on to note (bottom of page 185) that only moments later he told the driver to stop and he briefly got out. This is after they drove a little big through the grass to get around the SUV of officer Wilson. Why would the passenger stop and get out? Could it have been to quickly drop off Dorian after a quick change of mind?
If the driver took off, with the passenger in the rear seat and Dorian cowering down on the passenger side, and a quick decision was made not to take Dorian, that would explain the short distance then getting out, and then back in – as it’s described on page 185/186.
The construct of this proposition holds much credit.
However, not much later, Dorian Johnson is visibly back on the scene and was seen amid various U-Tube videos just East of the building where Piaget Crenshaw lived. In the parking lot area between the construction workers and the Crenshaw building.
Approximately 60 to 90 minutes later he reappears West of the Crenshaw building in the parking lot / grassy knoll area where all the media had assembled.
As Mike Sylwester’s outline shows, there is a distinct possibility Dorian was transported, at least for a short distance, in the White Monte Carlo.
There are other aspects located within the comment section of THIS ARTICLE which lend possible motive toward the supposition(s).
Other strange indications include:
• Two men in the Ferguson Liquor Market at 1:16am, along with Mike Brown – who arrived in a white vehicle. Same clothes at 1:16am as worn 11:50am during Cigarillos robbery.
• Mike Brown wearing “slides” for such a long walk.
• Dorian saying they met at 7:00am, but didn’t arrive for Cigarillos until 11:50am.
• They “walked” past a convenience store (Quick Trip) for Cigarillos. Walking further than needed to get the identical item.
• The burning of a trash dumpster, on the East side of Piaget Crenshaw’s building, which is between the building where Mike Brown and Dorian originated their journey. If Dorian, Mike and others participated in earlier activity, included something which might have been considered risk, there might have been motive to destroy evidence therein.
• Additionally, a revisit to the Ferguson Market CCTV video, combined with Camera #11 evidence at the entrance to Canfield Greens Apartment Complex, may also outline a vehicles’ involvement.
There’s something more substantial within the dots, it’s just difficult to organize them into a digestible picture.
