YES, WELL, SOME OF US WERE POINTING THIS OUT AT THE TIME: Jonathan Capehart: ‘Hands up, don’t shoot’ was built on a lie. And we were called racists, etc., by lefty journos for doing it. I guess just like some people were “premature anti-Fascists” in the 1930s, we were “premature noticers” re Ferguson.
But now, after the media fanned the flames of riots that wrecked a town and polarized a nation, we get this:
What DOJ found made me ill. Wilson knew about the theft of the cigarillos from the convenience store and had a description of the suspects. Brown fought with the officer and tried to take his gun. And the popular hands-up storyline, which isn’t corroborated by ballistic and DNA evidence and multiple witness statements, was perpetuated by Witness 101. In fact, just about everything said to the media by Witness 101, whom we all know as Dorian Johnson, the friend with Brown that day, was not supported by the evidence and other witness statements.
Nice job, guys.
