Virtually every time there is a shooting that is protested, you find out that the initial story was fed by lies. It’s not a coincidence. And this goes back decades. Not just family members, but bystanders alleging they saw things they didn’t, in fact, see, for example, as in the case of Mike Brown.
Via Daily Wire:
On Sunday, a 17-year-old black teen was shot to death by North Little Rock Police Department (NLRPD) officers, prompting precipitous reactions from people that resorted to attacking the police before the evidence was in.
One problem: the teenager in question, Charles Smith Jr., 17, who was a passenger in a car pulled over for a routine traffic stop, had already pulled out a handgun and fired, and the incident was caught on dashcam footage in a video.
Yet Smith’s brother, 21-year-old Juwaun Jordan, who said he was one of the occupants in the vehicle, told KATV that officers shot arbitrarily, asserting, “They just pulled up, told us to get out, tussled with him, and they shot him and killed him.” He alleged Smith did not resist the officers and did not carry a gun, adding, “[The officer] just shot him five times. He couldn’t move, he couldn’t do nothing. He had three officers on top of him, so how was he moving?”
