Did Ferguson PD Just Arrest the Wrong G

Joshua Krause

When two officers with the Ferguson Police Department were shot last week, it was safe to assume that they would eventually get their man, even if it wasn’t really “their man.” For the most part, whenever the life of an authority figure is attempted in such a public way (especially if that attempt was successful), the police will always find someone to arrest. They have to.

They must always maintain the illusion that they have everything under control and that nobody can get away with such a crime. Nothing indicates a lack of control, quite like having a police officer ambushed and shot, so somebody has to pay no matter what.

In this case, the 20-year-old “protester” by the name of Jeffrey Williams might just be their fall guy. Over the weekend the police arrested him, and managed to gain a confession to the shooting. However, not everything is what it seems. The information the media is reporting now, doesn’t really jibe with what we were told last week.

For starters, this shooting was widely believed to be a premeditated ambush against the police, and for very good reason. By all accounts the two officers were shot (one in the head), at night, with a handgun, from roughly 125 yards away. While the shot is not impossible to make, its difficulty suggests a carefully planned attack. But does that line up with the current narrative?
