entering the football field with hands raised.
The gesture was is support of the black thug who [allegedly] attacked a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri.
Apologists say the white victim -- who suffered a broken eye socket in the unprovoked attack -- shot Unarmed Michael Brown after he retreated and raised his hands in surrender.
Moments before the assault, Brown was video recorded attacking a clerk at a convenient store white stealing a box of cigars.
From our source we read:
From nearly 1,000 miles away, several Washington Redskins players used the Monday Night Football stage to draw attention to the situation that has been unfolding in Ferguson, Missouri by running onto FedExField with their hands up in the air.
Ferguson is where unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was black, was shot and killed by a white police officer on Aug. 9.
Police say Brown struggled with the officer before being shot six times, but witnesses have said he was not aggressive toward the officer and had his hands raised above his head before he was shot. As a result, the words “hands up, don’t shoot” have become a rallying cry of protesters, both in Ferguson and online.
Following Washington’s win against Cleveland, WNEW learned the idea for the gesture came from safety Brandon Meriweather and cornerback DeAngelo Hall.
“We just want to show our supporters what’s going on in St. Louis,” Meriweather said. “We just wanted to show support.”
The Redskins have been under pressure to change their team's name because 'red' refers to Indians. The Browns, however, have not been under pressure to change their name.
