Howard University students, Washington Redskins ‘put their hands up’ to the Michael Brown lie

Witnesses can be wrong and our experts usually asks the public to look at science for the facts, but in the Michael Brown shooting incident, evidence doesn’t seem to matter. Three witnesses, Dorian Johnson, Tiffany Mitchell, and Piaget Crenshaw, were quick to go public saying “Big Mike” had his hands up and was shot from behind.

Both the autopsy and twelve other witnesses tell a different story of how the 6’4″ 300 pount 18-year-old man was shot and killed by Officer Derrick Wilson. In fact, Wilson suffered “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket” according to the Prosecuting Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis County Police.

The NFL size “teen” hit the police officer in the face so hard during the struggle that the bones around his eye was broken and his eye could fall out.

 What was reported:

The St. Louis County Police told reporters after the shooting that the police officer involved suffered facial injuries. He “was hit” and the “side of his face was swollen.”

Swollen face?….No, his eye was nearly knocked out.

Michael Brown dressed up possible gang signsThe autopsy released on Monday indicated that Brown was not in fact shot in the back. He had no wounds to the back at all.  The Brown family attorney Daryl Parks alleged that it was “clear” that “the direction of the bullet was in a back-to-front direction.” That prompted Crenshaw to change her story on CNN regarding Brown being shot in the back.

Let’s get back to the shooting because the police don’t have three witnesses, but at least 15. Crenshaw, who went on CNN’s Don Lemon show to tell the tale, has backtracked and changed her tune after the autopsy as I mentioned, but what really happened?

Here’s the summary as we understand it:

Brown robs the store of cigars and Wilson stops him approximately 10-15 minutes later. Brown attacked Wilson through the window of his car, punched him, attempted to reach for Wilson’s gun, then ran.

When Wilson shouted at them to freeze, Brown turned around and charged Wilson, prompting the shooting. According to one of the officer’s friends in a call to The Dana Loesch Show, the last shot hit Brown in the head, and the teenager fell “two or three feet in front of Wilson.”

Brown was shot six times but it took the head shot to bring the man down.

On Monday night, the Washington Redskins ran onto the field of play in their exhibition game with their hands up. Safety Brandon Meriweather, was to “show our supporters what’s going on in St. Louis” and the myth that Brown was shot with his “hands in the air.” 

Hundreds of students at Howard University did the same by  throwing up their hands, and Harvard Law Professor Charles Ogletree suggesting that Officer Darren Wilson be arrested based on the “hands up” story.

Officer Wilson is safely out of Missouri, but the chaos is far from over. Sadly, the media will not be prosecuted for perpetuating lies instead of seeking out the truth. No one should expect less since Lemon confessed CNN knew about the robbery video but dismissed it as rumor instead of asking officials publicly.

    PS – The blow to the head and getting head in the head… MOST LIKELY THE CAR DOOR SMACKED HIM. Its happened to me. And the way people are talking, it seems most likely. The cop tried to back up into the kids, slam a car door on them, it bounced back at him. He got hit in the head fell back in the car. I’m thinking his defense should be that he suffered a small concussion from the ACCIDENT and wasn’t thinking straight. Temporary insanity. But the officer seems very much at fault.

    I wouldn’t be so quick to judge. And if you watch the survellance video closely. I see both boxes of cigars going back on the counter. I believe whole heartedly that the witnesses are not lying. And there were 6 shots that occurred. I highly doubt that Michael had his hands up during the final fatal shots to his face and head, but I do feel he was shot in the arm while his hands were up. Preliminary autopsy supported the eye-witness accounts. Further results aren’t available for another month. I believe this investigation is heavily biased. The victim is an 18 year old child ready to start college soon. Same age as my little brother. The officer didn’t know anything about the convenience store “robbery” that never occurred in my opinion. The problem is bias. I think we all have it. And we see and hear what we want to see and hear, and we are quick to dismiss wrong doing on people we share common traits with and quick to declare devils on those that we don’t. I think this deserves the utmost attention. And that survellance camera video footage should be reviewed and analyze just to vindicate the memory of this poor abused American.
