Bombshell! Brown’s stepfather was behind phony “Hands Up” claim
Witness #14 testified that Louis Head, stepfather to Mike Brown was source of “embellished” versions of the Mike Brown shooting. Head is also the man who is on video urging Mike Brown supporters to set fires in Ferguson last Monday night. 26 structures were set on fire, including a black church.
Witness #14 was sympathetic to Mike Brown, and had met Brown in the past. National Public Radio is calling witness #14 one of the most import witnesses. NPR stated today that witness 14 “offers some of the most compelling testimony.”
Witness #14 identifies Louis Head as the source of the false claim that Mike Brown was shot in the back. He also identifies Louis Head as the source of the fake claim that Mike Brown had his hands in the air.
We know know that over a dozen people committed perjury during the Grand Jury process. Louis Head was most likely one of them. Under Missouri law, committing perjury for the purpose of securing a murder conviction is a class A felony.
Even if Head did not encourage, or at worst threaten, others into repeating phony claims, he committed a class A felony if he testified to these fake claims himself.
