Anti-Police Protester Jeffrey Williams Arrested for Shooting Two Police Officers

Posted on | March 15, 2015 | 43 Comments

Allegedly, I hasten to add:

A 20-year-old protester has been charged with shooting two police officers in Ferguson, Mo., last week, authorities said Sunday.
County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch said Jeffrey Williams was charged with two counts of assault in the first degree, one count of firing a weapon from a vehicle and thee counts of armed criminal action. . . .

Via Memeorandum, with more at Gateway Pundit, Fox News and Hot Air, where Jazz Shaw adds details:

[McCulloch] said the investigation is still ongoing, but a weapon has been recovered which has been connected to shells recovered at the scene of the crime. . . .
The weapon was reported by police as being a .40 caliber handgun. . . . Williams was also cited as being someone who was “part of the ongoing protests” and told them he was there “as a demonstrator.” He had been seen taking part multiple times in the past. . . . Williams also had an outstanding warrant for receiving stolen property and was wanted for not having checked in with probation for at least seven months.

You know who hates cops? Criminals hate cops. So when liberals deliberately incite hatred against cops, is it any surprise that criminals are among the protesters? It’s the basic liberal urban policy agenda:

1. Hate cops
2. Vote Democrat.

Professor Donald Douglas at American Power calls the shooter a “black mofo,” but given Professor Douglas’ ancestry — he’s way more “black” than Elizabeth Warren is Cherokee — he’s just daring liberals to call him “racist.” Brian Ross of ABC News is reportedly “scouring Facebook” to determine if there is a Tea Partier named “Jeffrey Williams.”

    Nice that they caught him, but I hope they have more on him than recovered shells.

    If he goes to jail, that’ll be a great way for the guy to score a sweet position as a college professor, and also to hang with the Hollywood “in” crowd.

    He’s claiming that he did it but he wasn’t shooting at the cops he was shooting at someone else. I have to say… this is an odd bit of good judgement coming from someone who seems to specialize in bad judgement. It will be awful hard to prove who he was aiming at. I wonder if he’ll name names, though… I was shooting at so-and-so because he dissed me, man…

    (No, I don’t actually believe that it’s possible he wasn’t shooting at the cops.)

    You know that defense doesn’t even work on TV right? Keeping ones mouth shut when arrested is good judgement. Trying to talk one’s way out of the charges is never good judgement in fact talking at all is never good judgement. Name, rank, and serial number. Everyone should know this, cause ya never know. While I didn’t see attempted murder in Stacy’s list of charges he has apparently confessed to attempted murder. I read yesterday that he told police he was shooting at someone he had a beef with. They don’t necessarily even have to prove whether he was shooting at the police or someone else.

    Yes, in fact they finally realized that hey, maybe we shouldn’t do this at night because cover of darkness.

    It’s not a *defense*… particularly. But it’s still going to be hard to prove that he set out ahead of time to shoot cops, which is what they’ve got to do if they want to convict him of setting out ahead of time to shoot cops.

    They don’t have to convict him of shooting cops, he’s already admitted to trying to kill somebody, it doesn’t really matter who. If he’s confessed to trying to shoot someone else, that’s attempted murder plus the other lesser charges. He’s also on parole, even if someone is willing to post his bail they still keep him.

    Wrong. Dark is beautiful. Sunny days are KKK. Whites must learn to write ghost stories about hauntings on sunny beaches at high noon. Whites had it right when the Gill Man attacked beach-goers in the ’50s. Then they went all KKK with movies like The Haunting. Jim Crow never ended as a result. At least not if you’re on klonopin.

    Already the accusations that the police beat the unfortunate young man are afoot. This is my surprised face. Can you tell that I’m surprised?

    Yeah, okay, you won’t mind if I withhold judgement on those claims, will you, Sparky? Nothing personal, it’s just that everything you guys have said from the beginning has been a lie. So maybe you’re not lying right now, but that’s not the safe bet.

    In the Penal Law of New York, it matters not at all. If, in intending to shoot one person you shoot a third person, it’s the same charge and the same penalty. Penal codes vary from state to state, but it would not surprise me if the same practice applies in Missouri.

    Virtually everything wrong with the black community consists of behaviors that Progressivism encourages.

    Our nation’s prisons are not filled with black conservatives.

    Socialism always begins it’s takeover in minority communities because they know that when the shit hits the fan, people usually don’t blame the socialists. The socialists always work hard to put an ‘ethnic’ face on the issues of conflict so that when people get killed it’s automatically assumed that it’s an ‘ethnic’ conflict. Then the socialists slither away in relative safety.

    It worked in similar fashion with the campus riots in the late 60s. Certain leftist wing-nut profs were seen inciting the students, then skittering off so that they would not reap the consequences along with the dupes they incited.

    Sentencing for attempted murder of a cop is generally higher than for everyone else. (For good reasons.)

    According to the news conference given by the Sr Louis Co Prosecutor he’s being charged with two counts of first degree assault, ( which I assume means with a weapon) each charge carries a life sentence. Since he didn’t kill anybody I assume a death charge isn’t possible. The only upside I can see in pushing for ”the I was shooting at someone else” defense is that it could create reasonable doubt if there is a greater charge than first degree assault because ”cops” or whatever.
