Contradicting the established narrative, a witness told a grand jury looking into the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown that the teenager did not have his hands up when he was shot and killed by police officer Darren Wilson.
“Hands up, don’t shoot” has been the rally cry from the jump, as protesters said the unarmed teen was shot while he had his arms up in a surrendering gesture, but like many things being accepted at face value in Ferguson, that may not be what actually happened, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
