Report: Darren Wilson Suffered Fractured Eyeball Socket

From Jim Hoft at the Gateway Pundit:

BREAKING REPORT: Officer Darren Wilson Suffered “Orbital Blowout Fracture to Eye Socket” During Mike Brown Attack

By Jim Hoft on Tuesday, August 19, 2014

The Gateway Pundit can now confirm from two local St. Louis sources that police Officer Darren Wilson suffered facial fractures during his confrontation with deceased 18 year-old Michael Brown. Officer Wilson clearly feared for his life during the incident that led to the shooting death of Brown. This was after Michael Brown and his accomplice Dorian Johnson robbed a local Ferguson convenience store…

A blowout fracture is a fracture of one or more of the bones surrounding the eye and is commonly referred to as an orbital floor fracture.

We saw this yesterday but we thought it might get knocked down by the local authorities. But it hasn’t been, at least, as far as we know. Even though it has now been picked up by other outlets, like the NY Post.

In any case, if the report is true, then this is another major piece of information that has been withheld by the authorities. Information that would buttress Officer Wilson’s case and lessen the outrage over his shooting Michael Brown. So, once again, you have to wonder why such news would be suppressed, and by whose orders.

Here is more info on such injuries, via the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus:

Blowout Fracture

What is a “blowout” fracture?
A blowout fracture is a fracture of one or more of the bones surrounding the eye and is commonly referred to as an orbital floor fracture.

What is the orbit?
The orbit holds the eye in the correct position. The orbit also protects the eye. Because the bones surrounding the eye “stick out” further than the eye, objects tend to hit the orbit and not the eye.

What causes a blowout fracture?
Blowout fractures result from trauma to the orbital bones. When an object hits the orbital bones (usually the eye brow and upper cheek bone) the force is transmitted to the bones. If the force is great enough, the bones buckle and break.

What are common causes of blowout fractures?
Any large object with force or speed can cause a blowout fracture. Typical causes include motor vehicle accidents, balls used in sports, fists, and elbows.
Severe trauma may cause facial bone fractures, injury to the eye itself, and injuries to the skull/brain…

And we now know that the ‘gentle giant’ was not above using force.
