Pallywood Comes To Ferguson

A picture circulating on Twitter shows a "hot" shell casing that, I suppose, proves police are using live ammo against protesters:

Wow, @TheTechCEO found in right in front of him. It was even still hot! So, it must have really happened tonight right there in Ferguson! Good thing he took the picture to preserve the moment.

But wait, check out the dates. (You can click on either image to go to the Twitter post, if it hasn't been deleted yet.) The same image was posted a couple of months ago:

Oops. Maybe Ferguson protesters hired HAMAS' PR firm? Both these tweeters are currently covering the protests in Ferguson with an anti-police slant. With that in mind, what are the odds that one of them just inadvertently and coincidentally posted an image taken by the other two months ago?

Unfortunately, this falsehood will be a "fact" by morning, based solely on this photograph.

UPDATE: @TheTechCEO is now saying someone sent him the picture of the "still hot" shell casing he found right in front of him.

2 You want to witness small minded pettiness in action regarding this issue? Stroll on over to Red State and DARE to disagree with resident Brown Shirt streiff and co. I double dog dare you!

3 #2 - do you mean the article "Must We Have a Dead White Kid?"

Yeah, Erick is way off there. I've seen nothing about the location of gunshot wounds on the victim's body, but Erick is stating that it was "undisputed" that brown was shot in the back.

He also implies that Brown was an exceptional student rising above the crime and "bleak" education of his neighborhood.

I can't comment because I just registered but there's a 24 hour wait for new commenters.

But Erick will either be forced to retract or lose credibility. I doubt he will retract, since he posted that after the robbery video was released and didn't bother to mention it.

RedState is not what it used to be.

4 IF, Tech CEO had any brains, he might realize that he cannot prove to us that that was fired by the police.

5 #4 - I don't think he said it was from the police. Just given his anti-police, pro-protester reporting, the implication was there.
