BREAKING: Two White Construction Workers Who Witnessed Michael Brown Shooting Appear In Newly-Released Video Stating “He [Michael Brown] Had His Fucking Hands Up” [TW: Graphic Content]
NOTE: Watch the video by clicking through the picture above.
In new footage obtained by CNN, two contractors working in Ferguson, Mo. the day Darren Wilson shot Michael Brown react to the teen’s killing, with one throwing up his hands and shouting, “He had his fucking hands in the air!”
The men, who asked to be kept anonymous, told CNN’s Randi Kaye that they watched Wilson chase Brown, whom they claim threw up his hands and pled, “OK, OK, OK” before being fired on with his back turned. “The cop didn’t say get on the ground. He just kept shooting,” one said.
The video, taken minutes after the shooting, would appear to be congruent with previous eyewitness reports that not only was Brown unarmed, but that he had also put his hands up in clear surrender and Wilson fired anyway.
(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)
If you are going to the Propagandhi show tonight, please have fun for me. I won’t be able to make the show. I love Propagandhi and have seen them three times. They’ve been great every time I’ve seen them.
If you’re going to the show tonight, rock out and sing along when they play this song.
I am in your exact same position. I’ve seen them 3 times and missed last night. Endless sadness….. :’(
What happens when Rock-and-Roll, Thrash and Black Metal collide? You get Midnight. Fucking amazing band.
Here’s the deal: you push wretched vocals, dissonant riffs and fast strumming and dark / satanic content just to the edge of barely being Black Metal, but right before you hit full-on Black Metal, you veer sharply left into Thrash beats and rock-and-roll soul, swagger and solos.
I suppose you could also call it crust rock.
Look, I’m not hear to be genre police, I’m just trying desperately to dissect the sound because of how much I love it. I don’t care what you call it, it’s what metal’s all the fuck about.
Hi, I'm Pat. This small corner of the interwebz was initially constructed to anticipate the release of my favorite band Propagandhi's newest release Failed States. I blogged about all my favorite song lyrics. It was a good time.
Now I generally blog about my favorite subjects: Left politics, aggressive music, science and activism. That is, until Propagandhi comes out with a new record or goes back on tour. Then I'll be talking about them again. Haha.
Probably the most controversial thing about me, at least judging by the feedback I tend to get, is that I'm a feminist. So, prepare to party like it's the late 19th Century while I suggest that women are people.
