Sharpton’s Protesters Defend ‘Hands Up!’ Mantra: ‘Autopsies Don’t Have Anything to Do with That’


Video-Citing “various news sources,” Al Sharpton’s protesters defended the notion that Michael Brown had his hands up and was surrendering when he was shot and killed. In interviews with MRCTV, Sharpton’s protesters rejected eyewitness testimony and forensic evidence that Brown did not have his hands up and may have been charging the officer who shot him:
·         “No, no, the autopsies don’t have anything to do with that.
·         “That’s not true; I’ve read the whole report, too.”
·         “No, he didn’t resist arrest.”
“It’s not necessarily the exact motion of ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ – it’s the idea that Mike Brown was an unarmed, innocent man who was shot multiple times,” said one protester, arguing that the principle is more important than the precise details of the event.
