"Peaceful" Ferguson Protestor Charged For Trying to Burn Down a QuikTrip

Another "peaceful" Ferguson protestor upheld as a glowing example by the media bites the dust. Nineteen-year-old Joshua Williams was arrested last week and charged with felony arson after attempting to burn down a Berkeley, Missouri QuikTrip convenience store on Christmas eve. He was also charged with burglary after stealing multiple items from the store. Williams is also responsible for proliferating the "hands up, don't shoot" lie in the Michael Brown case. 

Earlier this year MSNBC did a profile on Williams where he discussed at length the importance of non-violence. Williams has also been a speaker at events held by the National Action Network, Al Sharpton's organization.
