Protesters in and around Ferguson, Mo. are outraged today at the death of Antonio Martin, an 18-year-old man who was shot and killed by a police officer after Martin allegedly pointed a gun at the officer.

Earlier today Twitchy reported that one of the conspiracy theories getting talked about on Twitter was that Martin really didn’t have a gun at all and it was planted at the scene of the crime. But it looks like there’s a new narrative developing.

Let’s sincerely hope nobody acts on what Masri just wrote.
