Witnesses: Dorian Johnson Annotated P1/2

dorian-johnson-hands-upThe following is my abridged edition of Dorian Johnson’s testimony to the Grand Jury. I think it’s important to read and as you go along, you’ll find my annotated commentary. Page 504 of 4799 page PDF starts Dorian Johnson’s testimony which took place at Justice Services in Clayton on 09/10/2014. It should be noted that at the beginning of the testimony Dorian and the assistant prosecutor discuss for the record that he is not under threat of prosecution for any type of minor criminal activity he admits to during his testimony.

  • -This detective arrived at the hospital at 1420.
  • -Darren Wilson was already in the emergency room.
  • -Visible marks to his face and neck.
  • -Blood on his pants.

  • -Darren Wilson’s Gun was recovered at the Ferguson PD after leaving the hospital.
  • -Gun was not fingerprinted due to DNA swab for blood.
  • -Latent prints are unlikely to be present due to the conditions of a struggle. I can confirm this is consistent with the rarity of obtaining usable fingerprint evidence in the first place.
  • -One intact bullet was with the gun, indicating with previous witness 12 shots plus one in the chamber for Wilson’s Sig Sauer.

This is a significant undertaking seeing as the PDF that I downloaded from the New York Times is 4799 pages. The page references to follow are in reference to the greater PDF and not the page numbers in the individual transcript documents.
