I sent Jason Smathers at Witnesses Unto Me a copy of the unedited video footage. After examining the footage and contacting both Dearborn Police and Roger Williams, he wrote an article on the affair.
Roger Williams affirmed the police report against Acts 17 to be accurate in an interview with Witnesses Unto Me and is sticking by his statements made to police. Acts 17 allowed Witnesses Unto Me access to the raw unedited video footage from three cameras to see what really took place.
The incident Williams reported to the police sounds quite long. The police recount Williams testimony "He added that he felt extremely uncomfortable and thought he could not leave although he attempted to several times." In reality, the situation captured on video matches David Wood's testimony in a previous interview with Witnesses Unto Me. In fact, Williams had radioed the police only thirty seconds after the interaction began. Acts 17 was walking down the street and saw Luke speaking with Roger Williams. Luke previously told Nabeel Qureshi of Acts 17 that he was taken to the police by Williams for handing someone a Gospel tract, Nabeel says "You good?" to Luke, who confirms they are "having a friendly conversation." Nabeel says "I just wanted to make sure he wasn’t messing with you or anything" then walks away. As Acts 17 begins to walk away, Williams stops them and says “You don’t have to worry about me messing with him, you need to worry about me messing with you, alright?” Williams only accusation against Acts 17 to their face is that they were complaining, but he never clarifies what that means. Williams says he would explain if the microphone is turned off, but never does even after it is turned off. The entire interaction takes about 2 minutes. Amal Alslami, a Muslim and employee of the American Arab Chamber Of Commerce told the police she witnessed this event and affirmed Williams statement. However, the videos do not show Alslami anywhere in sight during the encounter, but she drives up on a golf cart approximately five minutes later, takes pictures of Acts 17, then leaves. Alslami later tells police that she did not witness the incident.
When confronted about the discrepancies, Rogers says "This is why I did not want to be on any video tapes. It is always twisted. I ... wish it had never happened at all. I am not after them or anyone else." The way in which the raw unedited video has twisted anything escapes this author. Read More.
