Released now are the police dispatch tapes discussing Michael Brown's shooting, there's no audio for the first minute, discussion of the shooting begins after 11 minutes. The tech site Mashable has confirmed with the St. Louis Police:
"Reached over email, St. Louis Police spokesperson Brian Schellman tells Mashable, "We are aware of this and are currently investigating it."
Details for the recording present MANY questions:
9:35: "Ferguson has a… uh… is asking for assistance with cloud… crowd control [intelligible] officer involved, can I send one? … They just told me they needed assistance with crowd control in Canfield Green"
10:53: "1190…. He said there's just a large group.. the original call was a [intelligible] just occurred and now they have a large group gathering there and she doesn't have anything further…"
(writer's note: Why is the crowd control called in before the shooting was?)
11:16: "Hey we just got another call stating it was uhhh… and officer-involved in a shooting there at Canfield Green in [intelligible] I don't know who called it was called into my desk…"
11:27: "Ok… 2190… be advised, this uh… information came from the news.. so… I don't know…[mumble]"
"Absolutely can I have another car go to Canfield…"
11:54: "We're just getting information from the news and we just called Ferguson back again and they don't know anything about it… so…"
Around the 19 minute mark there seems to be a lot of clarification about information coming out of Canfield "down there in Ferguson."
21:53: "2190 – I'm getting a request here in from my desk that they are requesting more cars. Do you want me to send more of YOUR cars?"
22:18: "2190 can you advice uh.. you know um.. they are asking the other radios now… so…"
23:42: "I don't know if they need you, stand by and let me double check Jennings supervisor is the one requesting more cars and they're getting cars coming at the other precincts now."
"2190 if you're with the Jenning's supervisor now can you advise him they're sending tag cars now.. do you want to disregard any other cars on our precinct?"
"2190 that's clear. And don't start adding the tag cars [intelligible]"
25:00: "Ok 2190 in reference to the K-9 now, we're getting information now that Ferguson is supposed to have their K-9 and he's supposed to be on scene do you still want to request one of ours?"
26:19: "2190 be advised that TAG is not responding YES they will call back and advise if and when they are responding."
(Writer Note: I'm continuing to listen and find these but I have to change location folks are leaving the office but MoJo's piece quotes this part in between where I stopped and when they switched over to the riot channel (but their time stamps are off):
43:55: "Attention all cars, be advised that in reference to the call 2947 Canfield Drive, we are switching over to the riot channel at this time . . ."
