Media’s false spin that Ferguson shooter wasn’t a protester blows up in their faces

The man charged Sunday with shooting two police officers last week in Ferguson, Mo., confessed to a an area activist and church leader that he was the one who fired the shots and that he was there to participate as a protester.

According to Fox News, Jeffrey Williams, 20, told local clergyman Bishop Derrick Robinson that although he fired the shots, striking one officer in the face and the other in the shoulder, he did not specifically target the cops.

“He said a protester was trying to rob him,” Robinson said. “And he said he could not describe the protester. And I asked him if he could have shared with us, that were leaders out there, there was law enforcement, that if someone was going to rob him he should of have let us know that, so we could have had his back.”

No one — not the police, the prosecutor nor even Robinson believe Williams’ story.

Fox News reporter Mike Tobin told “America’s Newsroom” anchor Martha MacCallum that according to Bishop, Williams was there “to support the movement.”

That directly contradicts claims by protesters and other media figures that Williams was not there to demonstrate.

Williams is being held on a $300,000 cash-only bond.
