White Motorist Hits Protestors, Waves Gun, Is Chased, Arrested & Still Alive

Whatever happened to the white contractors who said Michael Brown's hands were up?

In ever Fox News clip, or pretty much all news clips where people are arguing, they bring up the same three black witnesses who say Brown charged Wilson, but they never bring up the white witnesses who said Brown's hands were up when he was shot? There is even a video showing them gesturing and saying his hands were up and they didn't know they were on camera. It's like they diapered completely out of the discussion? Where they even used as witnesses for the Grand Jury? If not then why? I can't find anything that shows they were.

Snip: CNN) -- Two men, shocked at what they saw, describe an unarmed teenager with his hands up in the air as he's gunned down by a police officer.

They were contractors doing construction work in Ferguson, Missouri, on the day Michael Brown was killed.

And the men, who asked not to be identified after CNN contacted them, said they were about 50 feet away from Officer Darren Wilson when he opened fire.

An exclusive video captures their reactions during the moments just after the shooting.

"He had his f**n hands up," one of the men says in the video.


Charles Johnson Falsly Claims NY Times Reporters Gave Wilsonís Address Then Put Reporters In Danger

by actually giving their address.

Here is the article I first came in contact with: http://rightwingnews.com/media/two-new-york-times-reporters-posted-darren-wilsons-home-address-look-see-home-addresses/

Here is the article he quotes and links to that gives the reporters addresses by Charles C. Johnson: http://gotnews.com/cant-publish-addresses-new-york-times-reporters/

Here Snopes eviscerates the claim:

Here is the original article though they did pull the photo of the certificate even though it didn't have Darren Wilson's address in the first place: http://www.nytimes.com/news/ferguson/2014/11/24/quiet-wedding-for-darren-wilson-police-officer-in-ferguson-shooting/?_r=0

So lets re-cap here. Charles C. Johnson who originally gave out the reporters addresses, completely fabricates this story about Darren Wilson's address being given out (because the address on the certificate was of a law firm in Clayton, MO not the Wilson's house in Crestwood) and in a way that makes it sound like giving Wilson's address was the authors main intent, then he turns around and in spectacular fashion, does exactly what he is falsely screaming about, putting the reporters in danger. Not to mention, even if they had given out the actual address, which they didn't, the Wilson's had wisely been gone since August as this article shows: http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-nation/wp/2014/08/15/at-darren-wilsons-house-neighbors-say-he-and-his-family-took-off/
