Liberal Columnist says ‘Hands Up, Don’t Shoot’ Was ‘Wrong, Built on a Lie’

Most of the conservative media already knew this, but the shocking part of this is that a notoriously LIBERAL Washington Post Columnist Jonathan Capehart has admitted that the “hands up, don’t shoot” narrative in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, was “built on a lie.” TheBlaze reports:

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.”

Liberal Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart conceded on Monday that the “hands up, don’t shoot” narrative in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown 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.”

Well, DUH. Everyone already KNEW that, but it easier to embrace ignorance for most people. Bandwagons are easier to hop on than facts to investigate. Too bad, but maybe getting more of the liberal media to support this point of view is the answer.
