My Commentary: Over 11 million, actually… if you’re including all victims.

(Michael Brown, the unarmed black teenager who was killed by a police officer, sparking protests around the nation, was shot at least six times, including twice in the head, a preliminary private autopsy performed on Sunday found.

One of the bullets entered the top of Mr. Brown’s skull, suggesting his head was bent forward when it struck him and caused a fatal injury, according to Dr. Michael M.

My Commentary: Michael Brown was shot by officer Darren Wilson at least six times, in total – as an unarmed civilian facing his executor with hands up, in surrender. Two of the bullets that Wilson fired at Brown entered his head, including one bullet that “shattered [his] right eye, traveled through his face, exited his jaw and re-entered his collarbone,” leaving “at least five different wounds” in its path.
