  1. Ferguson shooting suspect gave false confession, lawyer says

    Jeffrey Williams

    http://news.yahoo.com/ferguson-shooting-suspect-gave-false-confession-lawyer-says-230410789.html

    Attorney: Client was in a ‘tremendous amount of pain’ when interrogated

    The suspect charged with shooting two police officers during a demonstration in Ferguson, Mo., last week is now recanting a confession that he was the gunman, his lawyer told Yahoo News on Tuesday.

    “He told me that he never fired a weapon,” said Jerryl T. Christmas, attorney for Jeffrey Williams.

    Christmas said Williams, 20, was scared and in a “tremendous amount of pain,” having allegedly been pistol-whipped before being questioned by detectives.

    “I think under those circumstances he would have said anything,” Christmas said. “Anytime someone is questioned without counsel and then I see that kind of bruising, then I’m suspicious about any statements that he may have voluntarily given.”

    The lawyer said the injuries can be seen in the jail mug shot of his client.

    “He had bruising … you see the redness on the right side of his face,” Christmas said. “I don’t see how they are denying it, it’s right there on their own mug shot.”

  2. Darren Wilson testified under oath…’He comes back towards me again with his hands up’. So how is hands up a lie?

    Darren Wilson under oath

  3. As my granny would say… This ISH TOO THIN in FergusonShooting. Doesn’t pass the smell test.

  4. Jeffrey Williams is used as a scapegoat. Witnesses stated the shooter was Skilled. Precise. Professional. Did police beat him to confess?

  5. All of the bogus arrest records shld be thrown out. Ferguson leadership ran a GANGSTA racket. Gave people criminal records to keep them from voting so they’d continue in their extortion & racketeering.

  6. For the love of God, RECALL #BobMcCulloch Ferguson. Elect someone with integrity who will apply the law equally.

  7. Look at the bruises around his neck and face. Did they beat a confession out of him? Looks like someone assaulted him.

  8. Ametia says:

    Notice how MSM=CNN, FOX, MSNBC Yes, even cable have moved on from the cop shooting story, now that they have showcased McColloch’s LIES?

    Nothing else to see here folks, MOVE ALONG!

      “I don’t know him at all,” says @search4swag, one of Ferguson’s longest-term protesters, of the suspected shooter, Jeffrey Williams.

      • rikyrah says:

        Pnthrgrlgail @Mama4Obama1
        This is an attempt to silence protestors in Ferguson by linking Jeffrey Williams to them. That’s what McCulloch does.

    • Liza says:

      This story coming out of Ferguson doesn’t change a damn thing, not one damn thing. The DOJ investigation of the corruption still stands. All of the facts that have been brought to light about the black folks who have been abused, terrorized, and robbed by the municipal government and the FPD are STILL THE FACTS.

      McCulloch thinks he can manipulate the whole damn country the way he did that grand jury that should have indicted Darren Wilson for the murder of Michael Brown. He’s wrong.

  10. rikyrah says:

    I’ve been Black in America longer than 3 days.

    I don’t believe it.

    Don’t believe one word that they say. Don’t trust anything that has come out of their investigation.

    Simply don’t believe it.

    • Ametia says:

      NOT ONE WORD is TRUTHFUL. McColloch is part of the same network in Ferguson that steals from it’s citizens and treat them like common criminals.

  11. 2 police officers shot and one in the face with a bullet still lodged behind the ear and no attempted murder charge of a police officer? Hmmmm..something ain’t right. Get Jeffrey Williams a lawyer! I smell fish & it ain’t Friday.

  12. Ametia says:

    Of course they want to shut down that cop shootings pronto, before folks figure out they were staged.

    TOO LATE. We knew from jump that when McColloch shows his ugly mug, there are LIES & COVER UPS/

  13. Ametia says:

    WHELP! Here’s the $uspect

    CAKOurkUMAAhWc7

  14. Ametia says:

    How much of those same $$$$ that was taken from Ferguson’s BLACK citizens used to pay for that CONFESSION by Jeffrey Williams?

  15. Ametia says:

    If Bob McColloch thinks that he is in any way EQUAL to AG Eric Holder and the law…

    GTFOH

  16. Bob McCulloch sure came out quickly to speak to press when the shooter is a young black man but not when white Darren Wilson is the shooter.

  17. Ametia says:

    So continuing the racist tradition that is Ferguson law enforcement, they LIE & SPIN to victimize the black citizens in Ferguson.

    The gun that supposedly pumped bullets in those to cops was found-OR PLANTED in Jeffrey Williams’ house?

  18. No regular protesters have seen Jeffrey Williams at protests. Your dog don’t hunt #BobMcCulloch

  19. I don’t believe a damn thing frm #BobMcCulloch. This is a man who allowed a woman to speak to the DW GJ & she was nowhere on shooting scene.

    • Ametia says:

      Jeffrey wasn’t aiming for cops, he was aiming for someone he had a “BEEF” with.

      ‘X-CUSE ME, BOB, BUT…

      wheres_the_beef

      Negroes who have a beef with each other don’t carry out revenge in a crowd of protesters!

      FUCK OUTTA HERE

      giphy

  20. Ametia says:

    so where are these cops that got shot? Hiding out like Darren Wilson.

  21. Ametia says:

    Now there needs to be ARRESTS/MORE FIRINGS within the Ferguson D & city leadership!

  22. #Ferguson President Obama says the shooter of officers should be arrested but it should NOT detract from the civil rights issues that have been raised.

  23. Jeffrey Williams is black.

    • Ametia says:

      Well of course he is.

    • Ametia says:

      So he was in the crowd protesting, and then moved in the distant hills and aimed into the crowd. and then he put the gun in his home so the FPD could find it and arrest him

      These fools really do live in another galaxy.

    • Liza says:

      Yeah, I like the way the suspect saved the gun for the cops to find it. Very credible story.

      What is so nauseating is that McCulloch thinks this is the game changer and that he rules, he thinks he’s the smartest guy in the room. In McCulloch’s bubble that he lives in, the one where white men rule, he believes he’s saved the day once again.

  24. Ametia says:

    According to CNN, Fox wannabee, the arrest announcement was sent out via St. Louis County Twitter feed. Tweet those MOFOs and let them know they’re FULL-O-SHIT.

    WE AREN’T BUYING IT! Of course Jeffrey Williams is African American. So is AG Holder and the Majority of the citizens in Ferguson.

  25. Ametia says:

    Bob McColloch: “I HATE to be too terribly VAGUE.”

    Um, NO.YOU.DON.T. VAGUENESS IS YOUR MODUS ORPERANDI.

  26. Ametia says:

    So far, only one suspect, but More MAGICAL NEGROES MIGHT HAVE BEEN WITH JEFFREY!

  27. Ametia says:

    So Jeffrey was already charged as a criminal with warrants out on him

    McColloch and Co. SPINNING the cop shooter story like a MAYTAG WASHER!

  28. Ametia says:

    Liza called it. MCcolloch claiming shooter was a PROTESTER!

  29. McCulloch: Jeffrey Williams says he had a dispute with someone and the shots weren’t intended for law enforcement and had nothing to do with protests.

    • Ametia says:

      McColloch’s talking out the side of his neck. He just said Jeffery Williams was a demonstrator. They will let Jeffrey go and we’ll never hear from him.

  30. Ametia says:

    Interesting that Mccolloch wants witnesses to come forth on these shootings and didn’t want them for Michael Brown’s murder.

  31. Jeffrey Williams’ bond set at $300,000.

    • Ametia says:

      don’t believe one word out of McColloch’s mouth. ongoing investigation. this is just to get the attention off why it took them so long to produce their suspect.

  32. Jeffrey Williams 22, charged with shooting two police officers.

  33. Ametia says:

    When are the rouges and thieves in the FPD going to be ARRESTED, Bob McColloch?

  34. Ametia says:

    PLEASE! WHY SHOULD WE BELIEVE ANYTHING COMING FROM THE MOUTHS OF BOB MCCOLLOCH OR ANYONE IN POSITIONS DURING THAT DOJ INVESTIGATION?

  35. Ametia says:

    FPD & other LAW ENFORCEMENT DO NOT WANT CITIZENS TO PROTEST & WILL DO ANY & EVERYTHING TO THWART IT.

  36. Ametia says:

    Who dem negroes hanging out behind the podium on CNN?

  37. Law enforcement sources told The Washington Post that a local man was arrested in the late morning on Sunday and that the weapon believed to have been used in the shooting has been recovered.

    The shooting came just hours after the resignation of Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson, which sparked a new round of protest outside of the police department. Demonstrations have gone on for more than seven months since the Aug. 9 shooting of Michael Brown, a black 18-year-old who was killed by a white police officer.

  38. Ametia says:

    BREAKING! FERGUSON LAW ENFORCEMENT & LEADERSHIP SPEND MORE TIME HOLDING PRESS CONFERENCES TO COVER THEIR FILTH THAN UPHOLDING THE LAWS AND PROTECTING ITS CITIZENS CIVIL RIGHTS.

    Tweet that!

  39. Ametia says:

    Keep re-tweeting those threads, SG2. WE SEE FERGUSON LAW ENFORCEMENT!

  40. Ametia says:

    Heads up, 2 scenarios:

    Don’t be surprised if suspect is presented as BLACK. & a local, after all, 90% of Ferguson’s citizens are hailed as criminals.

    And if he’s white, that’s your tip off,, this was indeed a set up to further DECEIVE and cover up their racketeering, extortion, racists, criminal behaviors.

    • Ametia says:

      YES! They’re holding the presser to let us know they found the suspect over the weekend, where they think most folks aren’t watching tv or paying any attention.

  41. I’m hearing a weapon has been recovered.

  42. Ametia says:

    Don NOT believe what anyone from the already filthy, vile, RACIST legal authority in Ferguson says at this presser, and especially McCollouch!
