Skip to comments.ORIGINAL WITNESS' 'HANDS UP' BROWN STORIES FALLING APART
Posted on 08/19/2014 11:41:19 AM PDT by Jim Robinson
On Monday night, the Washington Redskins ran onto the field of play in their exhibition game with their hands up. The goal, according to safety Brandon Meriweather, was to show our supporters whats going on in St. Louis. More specifically, Meriweather was referencing the supposed circumstances surrounding the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown by Officer Darren Wilson; early witness reports stated that Brown had raised his hands before beings hot by Wilson.
The Redskins were hardly the only people parroting the hands up meme that meme has now gone national, with protesters and rioters in Ferguson utilizing it, hundreds of students at Howard University throwing up their hands, and Harvard Law Professor Charles Ogletree suggesting that Officer Darren Wilson be arrested based on the hands up story.
There is only one problem: the hands up story comes from witnesses with significant flaws in their stories.
There were three witnesses who said that Brown was fleeing with his hands up: Dorian Johnson, Tiffany Mitchell, and Piaget Crenshaw. All three also had another element of their story in common: they said that Brown was shot from behind.
According to Dorian Johnson, Wilson pulled Brown and him over to the side of the road, where he then attempted to pull the 64, 300 lb. Brown through the window of his patrol vehicle. Johnson stated, The second time he says, Ill shoot, a second later the gun went off and he let go. Thats how we were able to run at the same time.
Johnson told USA Today that the officer pursued Brown and fired another shot, which struck Brown in the back. Similarly, Mitchell stated that Wilson was trying to pull him in to the car...

Like tissue paper in a tornado.
stop wasting your money on anything Football
That's being really charitable. They bald-faced lied is more like it, and a town has been destroyed as a result.
Johnson is who should be indicted, but he won't be.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
And the person who made up the “hands up” story knew it would lead to riots.
I suggest that Harvard Law Professor Charles Ogletree be arrested based on the throw up story (he just made me throw up in my mouth a little).
And the person who made up the hands up story knew it would lead to riots.
was it Brown’s partner in crime ?
Hmmmm....flaws in their stories.
Perhaps we should ask Al Sharpton what he thinks happened.
You may be able to contact him at CAIR’s 20th Annual Conference Sept 27th!
“With the theme “Rooted in Faith, Growing Through Service,” the September 27th evening banquet will feature civil rights leader and MSNBC host Rev. Al Sharpton, as well as CAIR National Board Chair Roula Allouch and Reps. James Moran (D-VA) and Keith Ellison (D-MN).”
If that weren't fiction, I'd pay money to see it.
They didn’t really ‘see’ his hands go up, but they could ‘hear’ it as the sound of hands raising echoed off the wet grass.
Slightly OT, but one of the”witnesses” names is Piaget Crenshaw. Methinks one of miss Crenshaws parents took a child psychology course.
I wonder if Dorian Johnson, Tiffany Mitchell, and Piaget Crenshaw are ‘crisis actors’ provided by the DOJ. Regardless, they’re lying through their teeth, or is that ‘grills’?.
Imagine, if you will, that scene, and then question which is more likely: that, or that St. Michael reached in and tried to get the gun away from the officer?
Both would be pretty stupid acts: which person has the most potential for stupidity, a trained policeman, or a high teenager?
Like the Duke lacrosse team; like Tawana Brawley..........
Limbaugh today linked the "hands up" thing with Big Mike, as solidarity.
Seems to me it's more in solidarity with the looty-rioters.
We know they do "hands-up" but I've seen no evidence that the Gentle Giant had any hands up.
One thing will remain and that is the narrative that Brown was a victim. Otherwise, those participating in the protesting process across the nation would look like fools. Can’t let a thing like the truth get in the way of social justice.
It’d be easier to get them to admit voting for Obama was a mistake. That isn’t going to happen, either.
We knew this was coming, didn’t we?
As Hillary would say, “What does it matter?”
Truth is not PC these days.
Facts will not matter, just as they didn’t matter in the Zimmerman case.
Has Dorian Johnson been arrested as an accomplice in the robbery?
Did Johnson get away with the cigar sleeves, or drop them at the scene?
Could one of the 40 FBI agents in town get the store owner his property back?
.....”There were three witnesses who said that Brown was fleeing with his hands up: (Dorian Johnson, Tiffany Mitchell, and Piaget Crenshaw.).... All three also had another element of their story in common:....they said that Brown was shot from behind.”......
Obvious none of three are credible....which were highly suspect in the first place. Interesting that all three also said Brown had been shot in the back.
This whole incident now is just a circus for the black community to use as their staging area for ALL their grievances.......as we said very earl...it stopped being about Brown the first night they rioted and looted etc.
The Redskins are dead to me. Let us all pray that the Cowboys beat the cr@p out of them this season. No matter who you root for.
Piaget is most likely named for the watch company, just as Tiffany Mitchell is named for the jewelry store.
Facts may not matter to those in the hood, but they got Zimmerman acquitted and hopefully will do the same for Officer Wilson.
Officer Wilson also flung his eye-socket at Brown’s fist so hard that he left bruising on Brown’s knuckles.
Forot about the watch company. We’ll know what happened if we ever run into a “bulova miller”.
They were masterful in the Zimmerman case.
Football: a series of numerous stand-up meetings among heavily armored gorillas discussing complex & arbitrary legalisms, punctuated by the occasional movement of a defectively extruded spheroid involving crude shoving while avoiding all but minimal contact with feet.
Sports is something you _do_, not something you watch.
Geezy, caww—Couldn’t you find any baby pictures of them?
Since the “choir boy” story is crumbling, will they now be called the Washington Redfaces?
Uh... last I checked, it’s against the law to provide a false report to the police. Is this no longer the case? /sarc
These Redskins players proved beyond any doubt that they are moronic race baiters. Thank God we still live in a relatively free country (for now) and they are allowed to show their stupidity in public. Thank God we are also allowed our freedom to personally boycott all things related to their team. Which I plan to do.
Geezy, cawwCouldnt you find any baby pictures of them?
Those are they..LOL
Sports junkies will still worship them, just like they did Michael Vick.
You can bet there are more than a few gals in Ferguson named “Shalimar.”;-)
And they’d be, what- in their mid to late twenties? =^)
I’m thinking that Holder is heading to Ferguson because he and Obama KNOW that the Grand Jury is not going to be convened....none of the evidence “fits” the narrative and he is going to try to tamp down the craziness that will follow.......hhhmmmmmmmm.........
Low IQ leading to lack of foresight and lack of impulse control leading to crime and looting; i.e. “Ah seeze $200 shoes and ahze takes em!” “Ah punches honkies fo fun!” The only really sick things being the total lack of ability to resist on the part of the victims; and,the absolute worship of things black on the part of our youth.
I regret posting the article yesterday of the second "hands up" witness.
It appears the first pulled the story out of his a$$ and the second was coached by NBP or others.
Neither would dare make those statements under threat of perjury.
How about filing perjury charges against them for making false statements in their police report?
