Friends of Officer Darren Wilson are speaking out Wednesday to demand that the police’s “star witness” of the Michael Brown shooting be charged with perjury for his “hands up, don’t shoot” lie.
Dorian Johnson, who was with Brown when he was shot, originally testified that the victim said “I don’t have a gun, stop shooting” before he was fatally shot by Wilson.
Though this was later found to be a lie, the phrase kickstarted the “hands up, don’t shoot” movement that has since spread across the country along with violent riots.
Johnson has since said that the whole case has left him feeling “victimized,” adding that this whole thing started just because he didn’t like the way Wilson spoke to him, like a father telling off his son.
“Dorian Johnson is the one who started it all. If it was up to me he should be charged,” said a close friend of Darren Wilson. “He got right on CNN, he got right on TV and started blabbering his mouth off. I could tell by his voice that he was lying.”
“Darren Wilson’s story makes sense regardless of whether I knew him or not,” the friend added.
The friend cited Johnson’s claim that he hid behind a car yet also saw everything as proof that he was lying.
“That’s not possible,” the friend said.
As of now, there are no plans to charge Johnson with anything.
