Democrats Make Discredited “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” Mob Gesture on House Floor (Video)

Democrat lawmakers took to the House floor on Monday with their hands up – like protesters in Ferguson.

Witnesses and three autopsies confirmed robber Michael Brown did not have his hands up when he was shot dead in Ferguson.

But facts don’t matter to these hacks.
Politico reported:

Several lawmakers took to the House floor Monday evening to make the “Hands up, don’t shoot,” gesture to protest the police shooting of the unarmed Ferguson teen, Michael Brown.

“Hands up, don’t shoot. It’s a rallying cry of people all across America who are fed up with police violence,” Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) said as he took the floor. “In community, after community, after community, fed up with police violence in Ferguson, in Brooklyn, in Cleveland, in Oakland, in cities and counties and rural communities all across America.”

Jeffries added that people are fed up with injustice, a broken criminal justice system and “continuing to see young, unarmed African-American men killed as a result of a gunshot fired by a law enforcement officer.”

For the record… None of the members of Congress who put their hands up in solidarity with Ferguson protesters voted to limit police militarization
