Eyewitnesses give conflicting accounts of Ferguson shooting

Protesters in Ferguson and nationwide point to eyewitness accounts that contradict Officer Darren Wilson's account that he shot Brown in self-defense.

But other eyewitnesses in this case offer a vastly different version of what happened that night.

How could eyewitness accounts of the same event vary so drastically?

    Well Eyewitness accounts can vary for a few reasons like POV and proximity. But studies show time and time again eyewitness accounts tend to be inaccurate. Which is why the system goes for photo/video and recorded voices as evidence.
