Why not charge 'Hands up, don't shoot' liars with perjury?

Now that even Eric Holder’s DOJ cleared Darren Wilson and found that one liar, the friend of Michael Brown, lied about his claim that Brown was surrendering to Darren Wilson, why not charge him with perjury?

As The Smoking Gun reported:

In its report detailing why Officer Darren Wilson will not face federal civil rights charges for the killing of Michael Brown, the Department of Justice recounts an investigation that was marred by lying witnesses, none of whom apparently will face charges for their perjurious conduct.

The parallel state and federal investigations into the August 2014 death of the 18-year-old Brown became Perjuryfest ’14, a free-for-all of fabricated claims, exaggerated accounts, and delusional tales.

According to the DoJ report, federal investigators dismissed versions of the Brown-Wilson confrontation provided by 24 separate witnesses, who are identified in the document by a witness number and their respective ages, sex, and race. However, despite that limited information, some of the discredited witnesses are easy to identify.

The testimony from these witnesses was alternately branded inconsistent, not credible, unreliable, incoherent, and based on rumor and hearsay.

Federal agents declared that “material portions” of Brown sidekick Dorian Johnson’s account were found to “lack credibility.” Two women who gave a series of media interviews about the shooting--Piaget Crenshaw and Tiffany Mitchell -- were deemed unreliable by federal officials. The 19-year-old Crenshaw’s account was “riddled with inconsistencies” and certain details she provided “lack credibility,” according to the report. A construction worker who was laying pipe with a coworker near the shooting site was branded “not credible.” The other worker refused to meet with federal investigators.

Of the 24 individuals, several admitted lying during law enforcement interviews, with one teenager saying that he just “wanted to be a part of it.” After recanting her fabricated tale, a 23-year-old woman admitted that she “wanted to be involved from the outset” and be “part of something.”

In our race and media obsessed age, everyone wants to be a celebrity, to achieve their 15 minutes of fame. In this case, the lying witnesses achieved infamy since their lies caused a lot of destruction.  Homeowners in Ferguson, many of them black, have seen their principal asset lose value.  Daniel Rivero writes in Fusion:

The average selling price of a home in the city has been on a steady decline since the shooting of Brown last August, according to housing data compiled from MARIS, an information and statistics service for real estate agents. Prior to Brown’s death, the average home sold in 2014 was selling for $66,764. For the last three and a half months of the year, the average home sold for $36,168, a 46 percent decrease.

The trend has continued on through this year, with the average home selling for only $22,951 so far in 2015. Another negative indicator: in the eight and a half months leading up to Brown’s death, the average residential square foot in 2014 was selling for $45.82. In the eight and a half months since Brown’s passing, the average residential square foot in the city has sold for $24.11. That’s about a 47 percent downtick in one of real estate’s core indicators.

This financial devastation is due almost entirely to the riots, which were based on the perjured testimony inflaming racial passions:

“In St. Louis in general, the market is going up, and as a whole it’s almost completely recovered from the recession.”

Needless to say, businesses in Ferguson have been destroyed or devalued as well. And the City of Ferguson faces a deep financial crisis, all as a result of the liars.

The race-baiting that followed played a role in the death of two police officers in New York City.

The DOJ report makes it clear that Dorian Johnson, pictured above, was the promoter of the lie of the year :Don’t Shoot, Hands Up” repeated ad nauseam by rock stars, athletes and many members of the Congressional Black Caucus. Darren Wilson was made a pariah, his address all but revealed by the New York Times, his career ruined because of the lies and the race-hustling that followed. It seems we have seen this story before-Tawana Brawley and Al Sharpton whose lies and race-batig immiserated the life of Assistant District Attorney Steven Pagones. Rudy Giuliani was right when he declared he would prosecute Ferguson witnesses for perjury, and he said this in November before the DOJ confirmed the lies.

So why won’t the authorities do their duty and prosecute perjurers? Failing to prosecute will just encourage more lying, more death and destruction when the next such incident is exploited by opportunists.
