Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart: ‘Hands up, don’t shoot’ was built on a lie – While Missing The Media Chose To Sell It

Jonathan Capehart was one of the early media pundits who took to the broadcast airwaves and penned numerous columns about how police officer Darren Wilson was guilty of murder.

Today, he tries – and fails- to walk it back. Sort of…

Capehart pens a column stating the obvious: “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” was built on a lie. He then goes into details found in the DOJ report on the shooting to pin the origin of the hoax on Dorian Johnson.

[…] What DOJ found made me ill. Wilson knew about the theft of the cigarillos from the convenience store and had a description of the suspects. Brown fought with the officer and tried to take his gun. And the popular hands-up storyline, which isn’t corroborated by ballistic and DNA evidence and multiple witness statements, was perpetuated by Witness 101. In fact, just about everything said to the media by Witness 101, whom we all know as Dorian Johnson, the friend with Brown that day, was not supported by the evidence and other witness statements.

Why did the truth make Mr. Capehart ill? Because the sunlight strikes at the very core of the deception? Because the media narrative he participated in selling was false? Because guilt can make you feel ill?

Not hardly.

Capehart points the finger at Dorian Johnson and keeps it pointed there while simultaneously never recognizing the role the media, his media, played in the fraud from the outset. Sure Dorian Johnson was a liar, that is true – However, what is equally true is how obvious the lie was from the moment of its inception.

[…] The DOJ report notes on page 44 that Johnson “made multiple statements to the media immediately following the incident that spawned the popular narrative that Wilson shot Brown execution-style as he held up his hands in surrender.” In one of those interviews, Johnson told MSNBC that Brown was shot in the back by Wilson. It was then that Johnson said Brown stopped, turned around with his hands up and said, “I don’t have a gun, stop shooting!” And, like that, “hands up, don’t shoot” became the mantra of a movement. But it was wrong, built on a lie.

The empirical evidence was obvious, it was right there in the pictures of the crime scene – it was obvious in the placement of evidence cones and markers placed around the body of Michael Brown. It was all right there for anyone, including Capehart, to see and query. But they didn’t.

They didn’t because telling that truth would have run in direct opposition to the advancement of the media goals.

The media not only ignored the evidence present in the pictures of the crime scene, but worse they ignored the obvious inconsistencies in the stories of Dorian Johnson, Piaget Crenshaw and Tiffany Mitchell because those stories ran counter to the agenda now exposed in front of the entire world. Well, actually, for those within the world willing to see it…. and accept it.

Within 48 hours of the shooting we had already established the general parameters of the shooting itself. Those parameters were based on accepting the evidence as it existed, and researching the various bits and pieces of available information from the very media who now are beginning to admit they got it wrong.

Following the trail of evidence, factual evidence, was simply a process of searching through hundreds of hours of uploaded video and pictures from the scene itself, and within a week the factual construct of what took place was as obvious as it could have been to any media doing the same.

Nothing about our first week outline was incorrect – It was 100% Accurate.

So no, it’s not ok for Jonathan Capehart to look back and say “I got it wrong”, seemingly placing himself upon his own high-horse of magnanimity. For what? For accepting the truth?

[…] Now that black lives matter to everyone, it is imperative that we continue marching for and giving voice to those killed in racially charged incidents at the hands of police and others. But we must never allow ourselves to march under the banner of a false narrative on behalf of someone who would otherwise offend our sense of right and wrong. And when we discover that we have, we must acknowledge it, admit our error and keep on marching. That’s what I’ve done here. (full article)

No, the real issue, the issue that Capehart and all others will never confront, is the REASON they got it so wrong in the first place.

None of that reasoning had anything to do with Dorian Johnson.

      Capehart’s partner at the Washington Post was E. Robinson – who NEVER looked at ANYTHING that would de-rail this vicious lie. It was “un-armed”, innocent teen angle, who was ATTEMPTING TO SURRENDER, WHEN HE WAS GUNNED DOWN BY A WHITE POLICE OFFICER. There was NEVER a mention that this “cute black’ attacked the police officer, and attempted to get control of the pistol. (That’s a felony). Then this “cure back” (in a rage or SOMETHING), CHARGED this police officer who had every reason to fear FOR HIS LIFE. But Robinson “missed” all of this, in his “editorials”, it just came out (repeated endlessly for four month), as UN-ARMED, back teenager, shot multiple times, by a WHITE POLICE OFFICER (who it was presumed) had no cause to do so. (That is the “impartial” nature of the Washington Post’s editorial staff !!!)

      I knew this from the beginning, but didn’t have all of the facts until I read your reporting in what I call your “grassy knoll” post. It was obvious to me that Johnson was full of it throughout, but you defined it better for us.
      This Capehart guy is nothing but a hack. He is not a journalist in any sense of the word. He has zero humility, which is the first rule in journalism. If I’ve been wrong on any of my stories, I do a huge mea culpa, admit it and apologize, then print the retraction or correction on Page 1. Capehart can try to hide behind being a commentator instead of an actual news writer, but that doesn’t give him a pass. Using bias as a vehicle to drive his agenda is selfish and sick. Take away his pen.
      Thank you Sun Dance for your great work. I appreciate it.

        Actually I believe Dorian has a good shot at conviction for felony murder as I have bases for him being first the director of the robbery, or an accomplice and Dorian admitted to being an early part of the assault, sufficiently that Dorian merits indictment for one or more of these and thus for felony murder of Mike Brown. Oh yet, Dorian may have made perjurious statements to the grand jury or at least false stories to the authorities, which may be a MO crime and possible to the FBI, which would be a federal crime.

      This wasn’t the case with Zimmerman which is why they never tried to walk back all the lies told by the media in that case.

      The Marxist overlords (Jarret, Holder, etc,) realized how big they screwed up on this one by victimizing a cop and now they’re trying to fix that.

    Don’t tell me the msm never figured out early on that Dorian Johnson had clear MOTIVE to lie. They also knew the connection between Crenshaw, Mitchell and others. For Capehart to act all dismayed and surprised that they, in fact, were liars is the height of hypocrisy. Is his audience, his readers really stupid enough to believe him now when he, in effect, says “Well, who knew the whole story was a lie?” DUH. You, Capehart. You.

    I have spent a lot of years washing away others’ skin colors in my social interactions. I took the position of ethnic qualities that are positive and negative when dealing with others. My posture was to be neutral while desiring to lean positive. The individual would be the one who created a reality for me that might shift my posture/opinion; character has always been the principle cornerstone of my relationships.

    Since Obama, I have noticed the development on my part of anger toward those who come forward as “aggrieved citizens” from the “african-american” community. They desire to push their “victimhood” right into my face any way they can. I don’t like this.

    I am backing up, in my views, on certain peoples for reasons I can easily present to those who ask a serious question.

    In other words, they lost my vote, respect and desire to just be me and enjoy others as I meet them on the road of life. Now, I am not so sure I should interact in an open and forthright manner.

    I fear prejudice is trying to put its arms around me, and I don’t like this one bit, no not at all!

          The blacks acting this way and the blacks who don’t scream from the rooftops against their behavior and the blacks who encourage the behavior(BGI) have only themselves to blame if they create a generation who doesn’t care for them.

          My parents used to tell me if you tell someone long enough they are something eventually they will become what you convince them they are. The younger generation are told they are racist and should be ashamed of their race, eventually those who don’t want to hate themselves are just going to decide they prefer being racist.
          From what I’m seeing they’re creating two different groups and it doesn’t seem as if they want a third group, to them it’s either you are racist or you should feel guilt for your race.

        In my view, those people are not being racist. A racist is a person who has an a priori, unfounded prejudice against someone because of race. The political cases of Martin and Brown insofar as the black community has been concerned have done nothing to raise the esteem many whites have of the black community. Rather the opposite. As Sundance notes, it was obvious from the outset that the “narratives” about Martin and Brown were egregiously and intentionally distorted such that they bore little relationship to the evidence. The black leaders from Congress on down ran with the lies at full throttle. In addition, information about violent black crime, whether black on black or black on white has become more widely publicized, no thanks to the MSM.

        So, shifting attitudes towards blacks is not a priori prejudice, but, rather, ex post facto attitude change based on an accurate appraisal of reality.

          I spoke with two multi-striped local cops, doing security duty in uniform. Each of them were asked about whether the shooting happened hands up in their opinion. Neither answered and each scrutinized me.

          Each were then told it did not matter that they felt it best not to give an opinion as what I really wanted to explain was that contrary to the media that it was obvious there could be no indictment of Darren Wilson.

          As a white in a black jurisdiction, I wanted them to be aware that due to the media and the blacks being heard, riots were a certainty in multiple locations including she possibly mine.

          Neither accepted either statement and one surreptitiously attempted to take my photo, which was inappropriate as I was making a report to a local police officer and not a suspect. That one denied doing it repeatedly until I said swear on your mother or the Bible of the like and she became silent, which I used to proe she had my photographed. She admitted it, said she deleted it but refused to empty her delete/trash file pretending not to know what I meant.

          I reported it to the local police as it is clear I have trouble as these two were black cops.

          Yes I now fear most any black and their scowls show that the majority still believe a white cop gun down a black teenager with his hands up.

          We must demand POTUS and each AG say it clearly, there is zero evidence that Mike Brow had his hands up as the witnesses on TV shown dozens of times by the media claiming it were not credible witnesses, not credible a least biit.

          Then all the liberal and black congresspersons who were photographed with their hands up in a group shot on the Captiol steps should likewise have to publicly retract their defamation of

          Darren Wilson

          by innuendo of the photo or else Darren Wilson should sue them for defamation as they were outside congress and have no privilege from such suit (my best guess).

When someone does step up (like many church members do), they often get sucked into the BGI machine and end up doing more damage.

            More moms need to step and more dads. And they need to raise their kids to belong to a society of Americans, not the thug life.

            I know some really good black people who are way stricter than I ever was. They tell me they HAVE to be stricter because there are so many negative voices in the black community. They have to be ten times tougher and teach their kids to not listen to most people they will meet on their own street. How hard must that be? Makes me mad black people have so much to fight against because of the thugs in their lives.

              There seem to be some truths which cannot be uttered. I am willing to acknowledge that there are some significant racial differences. Blacks, for example, seem to excel in athletic abilities required in basketball and football and track, among others. More power to them! Ashkenazi Jews, an ethnic group, if not specifically a racial group, have relatively high intelligence: average IQ of 106. Whites have an average IQ of 100. African Americans have an average I.Q. of 85. Culture does seem to influence the IQ studies but to a very limited degree. Those are all facts. You may not like those facts, but facts they are. And those facts have consequences such as the vastly disproportionately high number of Ashkenazi Jews who have won Nobel prizes in science. It makes sense to me in a Darwinian fashion. Jews have been discriminated against for millennia; they have had to learn to live by their wits. Blacks have had different evolutionary challenges. Professional sports are among the most physically competitive arenas which exist. Blacks dominate in the United States. Professional sports are very highly remunerated and enjoy high levels of status and prestige, so it is likely that all skilled athletes aspire to excel in those areas. In other words, culture has little to do with successful outcomes.

              It goes without saying, almost, that statistics are statistics and one number does not reflect all members of a group. There are many brilliant blacks and there are a number of unintelligent Jews.

              Now for a bit of speculation. It seems to me, a white person with a doctorate, that many blacks are seriously attempting now to re-segregate themselves socially, physically and educationally, while other blacks wish to integrate into the larger society. I recognize that black nationalists, e.g., Nation of Islam, and others, have been promoting segregation on all levels for decades, but that effort now seems to be gaining momentum. As an example, I saw a television show within the past two weeks which involved interviews of a number of black sports stars from the 1950’s and ’60’s. All of them spoke standard English and were articulate in that vernacular. Listen to a comparable group of athletes today and draw your own conclusions. Many other examples spring to mind

        There is no complexity to a false narrative. It is simply false and without credibility. Weak. One sided. False. A lie can only be told for so long until it is exposed or forgotten. The question is how much damage will be done to support it until it fails.

    Capehart is regurgitating facts that anyone who digested the McCulloch grand jury data dump from months ago would know. Apparently he only believes it now that it came from Eric Holder.

    Unfortunately he’s not interested in dissecting the second Holder report with a critical eye — you know, the one that’s riddled with deliberate statistical misrepresentation in a blatantly transparent attempt to tear down the Ferguson city government and “keep on marching.”

    The MSM can’t tread into those waters, they might actually shine some sunlight on the “struggle,” the meme, the hashtags, and accidentally show that’s it’s all just as fraudulent as the MB hands-up incident was.

    Jonathan Capehart is one of the most disgusting “tokens” in journalism today. I’d say he is even more racist than Racist Gene Robinson, which is saying something.

    He was only hired by Washington Post because, by paying for one sinecure, they could check two “token” columns – the black and the gay one. (Mind you I have nothing against black people and I have nothing against gay people, in fact some of my best friends are black and/or gay (no kidding), unless a blatant progressive/liberal/racist/crooked con is based on using one or both of those cards. Like Capehart.)

    Capehart has lied over and over and over again in the Trayvon Martin hoax, like a broken record. Had the real victim, George, been attacked, wounded or murdered (God forbid), Capehart would have been among those most directly responsible – the way President B.O. and A.G. Eric Holder are directly responsible for the attacks on and murder of policemen all over the country.

    Occasionally people in the W.P. comments section (me included at the time, I don’t honor W. P. with my commenting anymore) were pointing out from “a” to “z” where and how exactly Capehart was lying. In the next article he was repeating the same lies as if nothing happened. This individual has no sense of shame.

    I hope the moderators will pardon my language, but this (alleged) man is dishonest, disgusting, despicable, a true emulator of President B. O.

The overwhelming data from DOJ provided background and much-needed context for why a small St. Louis suburb most had never heard of exploded the moment Brown was killed. His death gave voice to many who suffered in silence.”

      It’s a BS excuse explaining WHY it’s okay for those criminals to lie. It is just a big a lie as Hands Up, Don’t Shoot. In fact, it’s a bigger lie. Blacks commit most of the crime in this country, not just in Ferguson. That’s why they are in trouble all the damn time.

              Poverty training teaches loud people come from families stricken by generational poverty, not because of race. I think loudness is a mix of both:

              Hidden rules of poverty are:
              1. The noise level is high (TV is always on and everyone may talk at once),
              2. The most important information is non-verbal (students from poverty often miss half of
              the verbal interaction in a classroom because they are focusing on the
              non-verbals), and
              3. One of the most important values an individual brings to the group is an
              ability to entertain. The entertain rule or value often is misinterpreted in a
              school setting. The loud “show off” may only be doing what he/she is
              praised for in the neighborhood.

              Or it could be this:

              Male-male competition for access to sexually receptive females is a major factor in orangutan adaptation. Flanged adult males use their pendulous laryngeal sacs as a resonating chamber for the “long call,” parts of which sound like a loud roar. Sometimes the sound of a long call can carry for almost a mile. The male orangutan’s long call seems to play an important role in repelling male rivals and advertising availability to sexually receptive females. Adult male orangutans are intolerant of each other, and the encounter between two flanged adult males usually results in either aggression or avoidance. Combats almost always take place when two cheekpadded males are in the presence of a sexually receptive female. These combats may last for a few minutes (especially if the two males have fought before) or an hour or more. Males may be severely wounded during these combats.

              Or this:

              Intra-brood competition occurs between multiple young that are
              dependent at the same time (e.g., pups in the same litter), when
              parental investment is a fixed amount that has to be distributed
              among siblings. In this case, the extent of conflict is expected to
              depend on the available level of resources (less resources, more
              conflict), on the number of offspring competing for those resources
              (more offspring, more conflict), and, crucially, on the relatedness
              between siblings. Conflict is minimized when siblings are always
              full siblings (r .5); however, under any degree of multiple
              paternity (due, e.g., to polygamy or cuckoldry), the average relatedness
              decreases, up to the point where all of one’s siblings can be
              expected to be half-siblings (r .25), which maximizes conflict.
              For example, in a comprehensive study of passerine birds, Briskie,
              Naugler, and Leech (1994) found a negative correlation between
              begging intensity and genetic relatedness among siblings: In species
              where the genetic relatedness between siblings was generally
              low, offspring begged louder. This finding persisted even after
              controlling for the potential confounding effects of nestling size,
              nestling number, and variation in paternal care. In total, by
              straightforward application of Hamilton’s (1964) rule, decreasing
              relatedness between siblings tends to increase the extent of POC.

              Or maybe all that loud music damage their hearing and they have to yell.

    from Wilson and anyone else. Brown is also the source of the major male profile found in a

    DNA analysis of Brown’s left palm revealed a DNA mixture with Brown as the major
    contributor, and Wilson being 98 times more likely the minor contributor than anyone else.
    DNA analysis of Brown’s clothes, right hand, fingernails, and clothes excluded Wilson as
    a possible contributor.

    Then in the footnotes;

    While it is possible that Wilson inadvertently transferred Brown’s blood from his own hand to his gun either after the struggle or while packaging his gun (even though Wilson claimed to have already washed his hands), such a possibility is speculative. The autopsy results and bullet trajectory are consistent with Brown’s DNA being present on the gun as a result of the struggle over the gun. Regardless, the absence of Brown’s DNA on Wilson’s gun would not change the prosecutive decision.

      I’ll postulate that that reputation will NOT be rebuilt and that we’re instead on a permanent downward trajectory now. We had the civil rights accommodations of the ’60s, and a relatively peaceful time in the 80s and 90s and early 2000s where blacks prospered for the most part – although much of that was on a blank check of welfare, food stamps, section 8, affirmative action preferences, and make-work government jobs. All on credit that’s now part of our national debt and will never be repaid. We’ll simply wake up one day and our money will be worth 1/20th what it was last week.

      The Obama presidency has let the dogs off the chain. Look at the irrationality with regard to the Mike Brown case – they can’t understand the facts and won’t listen to reason. And their inflated sense of “injustice” and outright racial hatred against whites are being reinforced within their culture, by the education establishment, and by complicit media. Where in that spectrum do we see any possibility they’ll begin to behave better rather than to continue to act out in more and more pathological ways? I don’t see it.

      Most whites are able to ignore the low-intensity race war that has begun (knock-out attacks, beat-downs, home invasions) – for now. But look at the well-publicized beat-downs of the past week – by girls (the McDonalds 8-on-1; the 14-yr old white girl and 5-yr old step brother). To the reasonable, it looks like civilization has left the building.

      And wait til a band of 40 of them get all spun up and rage thru a neighborhood or public event in an orgy of ethnic cleansing. Not just punch-outs, but multiple deaths. Then it’ll no longer be able to be ignored.

      White flight will continue at an increasing rate and will go on steroids after an event like that. There’ll be no “rehabilitation of the black reputation.” We’ll be on the way to Balkanization and ethnic conflagration.

      We’ve bred a pathological criminal class and a pathological welfare class. The social pathologies of family breakdown, immorality, and leaching off the productive are not solvable. We continue to fund their breeding and proliferation, in fact. Our educational and legal systems coddle the perpetrators and excuse and explain away the mayhem.

      So no, I don’t see a rebuilding of the reputation of the black community. I think we’ve gone past a tipping point. Choose your ethnic enclave carefully.

        One of the things that Martin Luther King declared in his famous “I have a dream” sppech is that America had written a “bad check” of unfulfilled promises to black people that had come back marked “insufficient funds”, and the poverty of black people was identified as an injustice linked to discrimination and segregation which imposes a lack of opportunity as a kind of substitute slavery for black people that continues the bondage and chains of past slavery.

        Certainly it is true that there is a linkage between wealth and freedom in a world where so much that people may be free to do if they can afford the expense of that activity will be a freedom denied to those who haven’t the wherewithal to make that business transaction.

        But that financial reality is not the same as a constitutional or ideological guarantee and promise concerning “pursuit of happiness” and other promises of opportunity which was reality being redefined by Martin Luther King in different terms substituting REALIZATION of wealth that would make available freedoms that come at a cost, “affordable” not as an opportunity realized to “pursue” but instead defined as an ENTITLEMENt for blacks. “Freedom” for blacks is redefined as a GIFT paid for by “others” (white people) and bestowed as an “inheritance” to black people as if they were somehow OWED that form of “wealth based freedom” as reparations for past injustices. If it is really examined what Martin Luther King declared, it was NOT his message that America had actually written a “bad check” to negroes at all, but the problem was a “bigger check” needed to be written than the one already paid and cashed. (Sweeten the pot “whitey” or we will burn this bitch down) was the real message.

        This was a blatant outcry for wealth redistribution and a welfare state being implemented for the benefit of black people NOT so that they would have equal opportunity, but would instead have PREFERENTIAL opportunity with subsidized status created artificially at the expense of white people as payment of a “debt to black people” for historical injustices which were real and did need to be remedied, but to a far lesser extent than what followed. What has then followed is an excess of “over correction” where the scales of justice have been “weighted” like a pendulum swinging back the opposite direction to an extreme instead of achieving a reasonable and honest balance. There is a problem of “over billing” to America for whatever were actual past injustices to black people, and there has been heaped upon America financial RUIN trying to pay a “debt” that has been over billed and has been repaid several times over already. The negro “debt collector” has for several decades been engaged in usury regarding the “interest” on what it has identified as a debt and has engaged in extortion and criminal “debt collection” practices. Those black empowerment “reparations” must be phased out and brought to an end because the unjust abuses are egregious and intolerable racism based upon a falsely claimed “perpetual debt” over historical past injustice is a debt already long ago settled. That “debt” to the negro should long ago have been marked PAID IN FULL. And every continuing “debt collector” beyond that settlement should be treated as the con and thief they are.
