UPDATE: end of this article – Dr. Baden provided his handiwork to the defense of OJ Simpson.
“all the evidence is certainly consistent with a single bullet, but this conclusion becomes more persuasive because of absence of any reasonable alternative of any scientific merit apart from speculation” Dr. Michael M. Baden before the House Select Committee on Assassinations regarding the Magic Bullet Theory
Dr. Michael M. Baden has produced an autopsy report at the request of the family of Mike Brown. I will cover that report in more detail in my next article. The report itself claims Mike Brown was shot ‘at least” 6 times with multiple bullets producing multiple wounds. I find this is excessive for an unarmed assailant attempting to flee.
The report itself claims Brown was STRUCK “at least” 6 times from the front but also notes the autopsy did not take into consideration police reports, eye-witness statements or x-rays for some reason. Three bullets remained lodged in Mike Brown at the time of the autopsy.
Several of the bullets struck Mike in the right arm. Any number of those could have resulted in him being hit while he was running away or surrendering, facing the officer. [edit: Professor Shawn Parcells agrees with that assessment of mine, though it is hardly proven at this point].
What is also not stated is whether or not the officer might have MISSED one or more shots fired at the suspect while he was fleeing.
Be that as it may, I also found some interesting background on Dr. Baden that I thought you might be interested in while this autopsy is being hailed as some kind of new, valuable evidence.
He is also a frequent guest on Fox News’ late-night satire program Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld where he is known as the “Death Correspondent”. He is also the Forensic Science Contributor for Fox News Channel.
Dr. Baden appears to be a witness for hire. It would seem (especially in the Phil Spector case) that the guy will find whatever conclusion he’s paid to find.
Turns out Dr. Baden testified at the House Select Committee on Assassinations. This and the other information about his illustrious career I present to you in order that you may better understand his relative credibility.
I wonder how much he was paid to support the Magic Bullet Theory.
