Ferguson Meme 'Hands Up, Don't Shoot' Based on a Damn Lie!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Close friends of Darren Wilson have called for the star witness in the Michael Brown shooting to be charged for lying about what he saw.


Two of the Ferguson police officer`s best friends told MailOnline that Dorian Johnson - who was next to Brown at the time - should be arrested for his statements in numerous TV interviews he made days afterwards.

They say that he made up the claim that Brown had his hands up which kickstarted the `Hands up, don`t shoot` protest movement."

The ubiquitous chants of "No Justice, No Peace" heard at civil rights demonstrations since the 60`s have been replaced by cries of "Hands up, Don`t shoot " at Ferguson.

The chant No Justice, No Peace" is bad enough for its implied threat of violence if the protesters` version of justice isn`t achieved.

But the "Hands up, Don`t shoot" meme is a hundred fold worse, because it`s based on a damn lie.

Dorian Johnson, Michael Brown`s partner in crime in the strong arm robbery at the convenience store, claimed that his buddy had his hands up when the police officer shot him.

Two things to keep in mind:

Dorian Johnson is a low-life thug who has previous convictions for theft and filing a false police report.

Johnson is a freaking coward, who according to grand jury witness testimony took off running like a scared schoolgirl when the first shot was fired. He wasn`t in a position to see anything, and his testimony is absolutely worthless.

The public shouldn`t be protesting that the grand jury failed to indict Darren Wilson; they should be up in arms because Dorian Johnson hasn`t been charged with perjury.

A thug who robbed and pushed around the owner of a convenience store, and walks down the middle of the street like he`s a king, isn`t likely to put up his hands in surrender. His kind is usually brought down in a hail of bullets.

People who chant "Hands up, Don`t Shoot` are demonstrating their ignorance and stupidity.
