Ferguson Witness Dorian Johnson Lied

It's OK to lie about what happened at a crime scene because, you know, white people. They're scum; down with 'em! If your lie ends up starting the avalanche whereby your entire town is destroyed... oh well, I guess.

Riots broke out in Missouri this past week in large part based on the eyewitness testimony of Dorian Johnson, who saw his friend Michael Brown shot and killed by local police. According to USA Today, Johnson claims Brown was fleeing and the officer shot him in the back.

According to Johnson, the officer pursued Brown and fired another shot. which struck Brown in the back. He said Brown turned and faced the officer with his hands raised.

However, this testimony contradicts the autopsy report by New York City’s former chief medical examiner, Dr. Michael Baden. Dr. Baden told The New York Times the autopsy found that Brown was struck 6 times — four shots in the right arms and two in the head. The final bullet hit Brown in the top of the head indicating his head was bent forward.

Baden said, “It can be because he’s giving up, or because he’s charging forward at the officer.”

If you watch the entire USA Today video you see that he isn't just lying, but he's crafted an entirely different story about the events than what most likely happened. Did the policeman really use the F word? Doubtful. Also you have to notice the crocodile tears near the end of the clip. I call fake. This Dorian Johnson character absolutely failed his audition.


  1. If you want to see a really depressing take on last night's "protest", here you go. Makes me want to go back to reading Dreher posts just as a pick-me-up. (Almost.)

    I weep for our Nation.

    1. I'm irritated because my comments to Turner's ridiculous article didn't get published. But Art Deco commented and basically said what I wanted to. Go, Art!

  2. I don't think it serves us or fools God when we throw the victims of perjury, rioting and looting under the bus so we can one-up other white people by trying to appear abstractly more-compassionately-Christian than-thou from a safe distance far away. I really doubt Pauli and AD's strawberry blonde special princess would even try to save and launder her panties afterward if she ever found herself caught in the Ferguson mob acting out her admonitions. But then she never will.

    Oh - here's Michael Brown's stepfather urging the mob to "Burn the bitch down".

  3. To make the observer even more cynical over all this, apparently last month there was an altercation among some of the players over intellectual property rights.

    1. Yes, I saw that. These people have no idea how bad they come across to normal Americans.

  4. Call me an out-of-it old-timer, but one thing that struck me from Dorian Johnson's testimony is his description of his "day off" (which in his case, meant a day off from looking for work). He gets up around seven, and heads out to get some cigarillos for use in smoking weed, because "I smoke marijuana in my mornings when I start my day off ...". He runs into Michael Brown on his way to buy some (and to buy his girl friend breakfast, which never happened), and they smoke weed together. Then they head to the Ferguson Market to get more 'rillos, and the rest of the story happens. Time elapsed -- about four hours (still no breakfast for GF).

    Moreso than his description of the event, his testimony of how a typical day off starts provides a window in a culture gone wrong, IMO. Seems that there is much of significance to be fixed in our culture, and much that won't be fixed by sending cops to race sensitivity training.

    P.S. The dilation of time that morning also struck me. Get up at 7:00, go downstairs to get some breakfast for the GF, smoke some weed and chat along the way, and before you know it it's 11:00 and you're at the store watching the gentle giant forcibly steal the 'rillos. Not a good reflection on the productivity of the culture.

    P.P.S. From my glance through of his testimony, and taking him at his word, Dorian Johnson comes across relatively bright and likeable. Sad that he, and so many others, are subjects of the tyranny of low expectations.
