On Tuesday, Chicago firefighter Kevin O’Grady posted a picture to his Facebook page which he claimed was of officer Darren Wilson’s face after he was assaulted by Michael Brown.
The image quickly went viral, with social media users reposting and retweeting it.
As it turns out, the picture was not of Darren Wilson after all. It was actually a photo of late motocross rider Jim McNeil after he was seriously injured in a crash while practicing.
It’s odd that so many people jumped on the bandwagon in the first place, because the photo looks nothing like the real officer Wilson.
This was just another hoax in slew of others resulting from the coverage of the Michael Brown shooting. There are sure to be more to come. We here at Mr. Conservative will keep you posted with authentic, pertinent material as the Michael Brown case unfolds.
