Dorian Johnson Arrested For Resisting Arrest, Which Is Weird

It seems like only yesterday that “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” prevaricator Dorian Johnson announced that he’s suing Ferguson, MO for being mean to him. That’s because it was only yesterday. And then, later that day, Johnson decided to celebrate.

Christine Byers, St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

Dorian Johnson, the man who was with Michael Brown when Brown was fatally shot by a Ferguson police officer last summer, has been arrested on suspicion of drug charges and resisting arrest, a St. Louis police source said Wednesday…

The police report did not name Johnson, but a police source who spoke on the condition of anonymity said that the incident involved Johnson and two of his brothers. Johnson allegedly had a cough medication mixed with what police believe to be an illegal narcotic on him.

The report said that as the officers who went to the scene dispersed the crowd, they noticed that one man had a bulge in his clothes that they suspected might be a weapon. A second man grabbed the arm of the officer who attempted to pat the first man down. The officer then attempted to detain the second man.

That prompted a third man to approach the officer and yell at him in an attempt to stop the arrest, the report said. That man allegedly then discarded narcotics onto the ground.

All three were arrested.

Which is, of course, racist.

This can only help Johnson’s lawsuit against Ferguson. Everybody knows that if you don’t like the police, you don’t have to do what they say. You’re allowed to put your hands on them to stop them from doing their jobs. That’s what Michael Brown did, and he was executed for it.

If the cops are white, that proves it’s racism. If the cops are black, that proves it’s institutional racism. When something bad happens to a black person, everything proves that it’s racism. And racism = $$$.

I look forward to Dorian Johnson’s well-deserved legal victory. For a long time to come, the city of Ferguson will be buying his drank.
