Why won't the black lives matter people admit they were wrong?

Posted by: Dilara

Jonathan Capehart wrote an article for the Washington post called "hands up was built on a lie". He admits that he was wrong about ferguson and that Darren Wilson is innocent. Still some people won't acknowledge facts and continue to demonize an innocent man.

On page 8 of the doj report it says that brown likely didn't have his hands up. He was shot in the top of the arm--making it physically impossible for him to have had his palms facing Wilson.
Dilara says2015-04-08T09:13:59.0302456-05:00
And 7 black witnesses supported Wilson's claim that brown was charging him. The witnesses who claimed he had his hands up were deemed no credible by the DOJ because their stories weren't supported by physical evidence or their previous stories--they changed their stories.

Wilson is innocent and all the idiots who claimed he was a murderer should apologize for ruining his life over an act of self defense.

Black life's mater was not wrong, and was not just about Wilson. Aside from that, did you read the report? Or at least get an actual honest understanding of it? Its terrible what is going on. The reaction was to a systemic problem that exists.

So black lives don't matter Dilara? I have had enough of your biased bs on this site. I seriously think you need mental help. This isn't an insult, I am dead serious. This isn't normal and you show some symptoms of someone who is mentally disturbed, like most angry, delusional and incompetent trolls on the internet.

Brian. All lives matter. Black, white, Asian, Christian, Muslim, atheists, ect. The movement to end police brutally is a good one. But the specific group--the Black lives matter group is a joke.
Dilara says2015-04-08T10:50:02.8253677-05:00
Tbr. Read jon capeharts article. Than get back to me. Read my previous comments at least. Brown was shot in the top of the arm--but if he had his hands up in surrender position than the bottom of his arm would be facing Wilson and it would be impossible for Wilson to have shot him in the top of the arm. 7 black witnesses support Wilson's claims that brown was moving towards Wilson. 6 black witness's support the black lives matter peoples claim that brown was surrendering--but all those witnesses were deemed not credible by the DOJ as they changed their stories many times and none of their stories were supported by physical evidence.

"jon capeharts" I have. Also listened to an interview he did. Also, I have listened to a good discussion on the complete findings of the fed report. You are concentrating on the scuffle and shooting (issues absolutely) and ignoring the problem that was being discussed and highlighted (as shown in the complete FED report).

I dont dispute the results of the Ferguson trial. Although it was tragic, all available evidence supports Wilson's innocents. But none the less, that doesn't excuse the fact that the Ferguson PD were at fault for racially discriminating against minority groups. The Justice department has investigated the FPD and found a substantial amount of evidence to support this. The anger behind the Black Lives Matter movement is based behind this poor treatment, with the shootings itself being the spark that lit the powder keg.

@58539672 - yup

Yes you are right about one thing, all lives do matter, but it's not about all lives because all lives aren't treated the same no matter how much you want to pretend they are. It's not white people being murdered in cold blood due to the systematic racism that justifies it. It's not white victims who's murderes face no justice for their crimes, no body questions their humanity or whether or not they deserved to live when it happens. I am not too much involved in the movement nor do I know about everything that goes on but I can still see the injustice, and people like you only further racial tension while hiding behind this fake mask of "equality". You don't even know what the movement is about which is why you keep showing your ignorance on the subject through these ridiculous and asinine polls and comments you make.

I don't mind the movement as a whole but they need to stop with the "hands up, don't shoot" crap. It is now obvious based on evidence and witnesses that Darren Wilson was assaulted by Brown. Brown never even had his hands up. Maybe both sides could try to be a little more honest.
benhos says2015-04-08T15:24:42.4254818-05:00
Because they weren't wrong. I am still standing strong on my stance that Michael Brown never had contact with Wilson. He robbed a convenience store, walked out, Wilson aimed, and Brown ran away as he was being shot.
Dilara says2015-04-08T15:50:28.3713515-05:00
Brian Which black person was killed by a white cop and didn't get justice? And tbr I am talking about the shooting if michael brown the criminal only. I am aware if the racial profiling, racist jokes and other things the ferguson pd did. I am fine with people speaking out about that but the specific incident that out that town on the map was justified and nothing more the an innocent man saving his life from a dangerous and violent criminal.
Dilara says2015-04-08T15:54:27.4055546-05:00
Benhos at least read the article. 1 Browns blood and skin from his palm were found on Wilson's uniform, car and gun. 2 Gun res was on Browns clothes. 3 Brown had a shot in the hand that could have only come from close range. These facts in the DOJ report that prove that brown assaulted Wilson. After assaulting Wilson brown took off than turned back and charged. 7 black witnesses support this and say brown moved toward Wilson. Brown was shot in the front including once in the arm--the top of the arm--but if he had his hands up he would have been shot in the bottom of the arm.

Because its not Brown and Wilson. Its about systemic injustice. Because the semantics of the movement and the 1 particular michael brown case are not the point of the movement and the slogan still applies to too many situations. The movement will not stop until the injustice is stopped and people like you will not stop it.
