You Won’t Believe Who is Now Saying ‘Hands Up, Don’t Shoot’ Was ‘Built on a Lie’ and That Officer Darren Wilson Was ‘Justified’

Race-baiting activists are enraged this morning after one of their own finally told the truth about Michael Brown and Ferguson.

Liberal Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart — who made dozens of appearances last year defending Brown and attacking the police — conceded on Monday that the “hands up, don’t shoot” narrative in the fatal shooting of the Black teen in Ferguson, Missouri, was “built on a lie.”

Following the release of the Justice Department’s report on the shooting, Capehart wrote that he was forced to confront “two uncomfortable truths” in the case: “Brown never surrendered with his hands up, and Wilson was justified in shooting Brown.”

More from Capehart’s column:

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….

The DOJ report notes on page 44 that Johnson “made multiple statements to the media immediately following the incident that spawned the popular narrative that Wilson shot Brown execution-style as he held up his hands in surrender.” In one of those interviews, Johnson told MSNBC that Brown was shot in the back by Wilson. It was then that Johnson said Brown stopped, turned around with his hands up and said, “I don’t have a gun, stop shooting!” And, like that, “hands up, don’t shoot” became the mantra of a movement. But it was wrong, built on a lie.

It didn’t take long for the race-baiters to freak out, and then lash out at Capehart:

Complete fiction, as even Eric Holder admitted.

Child? LOL. Here is the “child” Mike Brown strong-arm robbing the convenience store. Was his getaway tricycle waiting outside?

More level heads praised Capehart and called for the race-baiting liars to get a clue and learn from this insane episode:

And some pointed out how Capehart himself was culpable in spreading the lies:
