Ferguson – Hands Up appears to be Made Up

The truth is beginning to surface in the shooting of Michael Brown, not that the Left gives a crap.

Likely the most revealing part of testimony thus far is that fact that the so-called eye-witness to the crime and Brown’s companion Dorian Johnson was nowhere to be found, once the first shot rang out. It would appear, “hands up” was “made up.”

Don’t think the Left won’t do all that it can to make a mockery of the grand jury, as this video suggests:



The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports:

A stream of eyewitnesses has been testifying in secret before a grand jury considering whether to indict police officer Darren Wilson in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown near the Canfield Green apartments in Ferguson.

Among the recollections of the witness, who agreed to an interview on the condition that his name not be used, were:

After an initial scuffle in the car, the officer did not fire until Brown turned back toward him.
Brown put his arms out to his sides but never raised his hands high.
Brown staggered toward Wilson despite commands to stop.
The two were about 20 to 25 feet apart when the last shots were fired.

Some have said that Wilson first fired as Brown ran away from him, then pumped off more shots after Brown turned around.

Some have said Brown raised his arms high in surrender, giving rise to a common protesters’ chant of “Hands up, don’t shoot” while mimicking the move. But this witness said Brown never put his hands straight up, but held his elbows straight out from his torso, with palms turned up in a sort of gesture of disbelief.

Perhaps the most widely quoted witness has been Brown’s companion that day, Dorian Johnson, who said Wilson had grabbed Brown by the throat through the open window of the officer’s police SUV. Johnson, 22, also said Wilson shot Brown at the car, then ran after Brown, who put his hands up in surrender, and then shot him again.
