There has been sharp criticism of an Uplands Park city worker who said live on FOX News that the shooting of the two officers was a “set up” by police.
John Muhammad identified himself as city manager of the tiny north county village of Uplands Park during a live interview Thursday night on FOX News channel.
Muhammad whose been involved in the protests, is now feeling the backlash. Uplands Park is taking swift action.
Muhammad was interviewed by FOX News reporter Steve Harrigan Thursday night during a broadcast at the vigil in front of the Ferguson police department. He identified himself as the city manager of the tiny north county community, a title that insinuates one who runs the day to day operations of the city.
“I think it was a complete set up,” Muhammad said during a FOX News interview. “I think it was a set up between members of the police fraternity; what I like to call them. I think they operate just like the KKK. I think they did it to make themselves a victim when honestly the victim are black people. I think it’s just a publicity stunt no more than that.”
