When Baltimore resident Darius Rosebrough, 21, tried to stop traffic during a Freddie Gray protest on Wednesday and then later lied about having been hit by a motorist, he learned exactly why liars rarely prosper.
The police immediately went to arrest Rosebrough, but he stubbornly resisted, so they tackled him to the ground.
He was then hauled off to jail on charges of disorderly conduct, second-degree assault and making a false statement, yelling repeatedly, “I’m hurt; I got hit by a car,” although witnesses said that was not true.
Rosebrough, an activist and rapper who also goes by the name Kwame Rose, was among a small number of protesters gathered outside a Baltimore courthouse on the day of the first hearings on the death of Freddie Gray.
Gray died in April while being transported in a police vehicle. Race rioters and protesters like Darius Rosebrough claimed the police killed Gray, but according to evidence in the case, Gray repeatedly banged his head against the van and may have thereby injured himself more seriously than he had wanted.
It appears that lying is commonplace among the professionally offended, who also tried to make excuses for the behavior of Mike Brown, the Ferguson thug who died after he attacked a police officer.

Despite his incessant screaming about having been struck by a car, Rosebrough’s lawyer said his client was treated and released from a local hospital. One officer was reported to have received minor injuries while assisting with the arrest.
Thankfully, Rosebrough was the only protester aggressive — or stupid — enough to get himself arrested during Wednesday’s demonstrations.
That pretty much tells you all you need to know about this guy.
