The Darren Wilson shooting in Ferguson has caused enormous contention in recent months, but TV news host Nancy Grace has stepped up to slam the cop this week. The past prosecutor and outspoken anchor recently called police officer Wilson out yesterday on CNN News, saying that his story simply “doesn’t add up” and “I don’t see it” in regards to his claims. Media Lite reveals Grace’s fierce outburst this Friday, November 28, 2014, which marks the very first time she has ever condemned a law enforcement authority.
Viewers may not have been expecting it, but Nancy Grace was vocal and adamant in contending this Wednesday that Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson’s defense statement makes little sense to her. During a new interview with Brooke Baldwin, which was featured in a showing on CNN Newsroom, the candid TV host said his comments regarding the killing of black teen Michael Brown has some serious issues. Grace is more commonly recognized for her more conservative tendencies when it comes to crime. Yet she took a surprising approach in her take to slam the accused in the Ferguson shooting case.
Grace firmly asserted, “I don’t see it.” While Darren Wilson may have escaped an official indictment from a Missouri grand jury earlier this week, Nancy Grace said that the cop’s remarks honestly don’t “add up” in her opinion. On the CNN interview, Grace reminded TV viewers that she normally takes the side of police officers, but in this case, she just can’t. She was visibly heated and affected in her statement, which is ringing true with many readers this Thanksgiving weekend.
“Look, do you know how many times I have sided against a cop?” a clearly invested Grace asked her interviewer, Baldwin, at the time on Wednesday. “Never. But to me, this is bigger than a badge. And I don’t like speaking out against a cop, but this doesn’t add up.”
Later on in the interview, notes the Inquisitr News, Nancy Grace went on to say that a number of recently released photos highlighting Wilson’s injuries are also faulty. The Ferguson police officer’s testimony demonstrated that he had been hit very hard in the face — been punched so fiercely, in fact, that he might have died from the blow. Yet Grace slammed the cop on this statement as well, calling it out as faulty in light of the evidence. The photos apparently only show a red mark, not a near-fatal attack.
“When people say, it just doesn’t add up, I will tell you what doesn’t add up, these photos,” Grace said, holding up photos of Darren Wilson’s allegedly injured face taken shortly after the shooting. “Because I was expecting to see and we’ve all seen them, I’ve looked at a them, I’ve studied them, and I was expecting to see his face mangled….He doesn’t even have a bruise, right? It’s red. He’s got a red mark! I don’t see it.”
With little doubt, Nancy Grace seems confident that cop Darren Wilson’s story seems to be missing essential parts, or at least fails to ring fully true. As one who normally defends police officers, it is telling that she seems to stand more on the side of the shooting victim, 18-year-old Michael Brown, this time around. She concluded by noting that Wilson likely wasn’t in a great fear for his very own life as he alleges. Do you agree with Grace and her declarations stoutly given in the CNN interview?

“I hear what he’s saying and that he was afraid and this happened and that happened … But I always go back to the beginning and the beginning is this: You got an armed man and an unarmed man. The unarmed man is shot six to seven times. He unloaded many many more bullets. Why? … If you wanted to live, then put the pedal to the metal and drive when the guy is trying to jump in your car and grab your gun!”
