There was no shortage of opinions in the aftermath of the arrest of Ferguson cop-shooting suspect Jeffrey Williams Sunday.
Many expressed happiness with the arrest and some even took the opportunity to mock Obama.
Others subscribed to sinister conspiracy theories claiming Williams wasn’t a protester and is an FBI “fall guy.”
And then there were the predictions of how the media is going to play this turn in the case, with speculation about the angelic, childhood photos we can expect to see of the alleged gunman — or, as one Twitter user put it, “incoming baby pictures of Jeffrey Williams.”
Here is a sampling of the responses in the Twitterverse.

Has @BarackObama made Jeffrey Williams an honorary member of his extended hypothetical family yet?

MSNBC has released another photo of Jeffrey Williams. This was taken when he was just a zygote… So innocent… pic.twitter.com/cppTfm3nXy

So Jeffrey Williams shot at someone else entirely & managed to “accidentally” hit the only 2 cops around in the head? Ya, who’s that dumb!

So, Ferguson protesters, what’s the claim this time? Racist cops shot themselves to frame promising youth Jeffrey Williams?

The exact same people that said Mike Brown had his hands up and back turned are saying that Jeffrey Williams didn’t do it. Call me shocked.

You would think that Jeffrey Williams would know that you have to be 21 to buy a handgun. There ought to be a law…oh wait.

These conspiracy theorists said they don’t believe the government’s story. Big surprise.
Asked 4 protest regulars if they’ve ever seen/met Jeffrey Williams. Their text responses: “No” “Hell no” “Nope. No” “Never”

Target and motive will have to be sorted out but, based on all I now know, I am satisfied that Williams was never a protester.

I’ve never seen Jeffrey Williams in the 7 months I’ve been in #Ferguson/STL. Never. Ever. Ever.
— Charles Wade (@akacharleswade) March 15, 2015
I’ve been in Ferguson protests since August, at protests in The Grove, downtown, at FoodSpark events, etc & never seen Jeffrey Williams.
— Ree Cee (@ree_cee) March 15, 2015
I’m still looking for anyone who has seen or interacted with Jeffrey Williams. So far frequent protesters say they’ve never seen him.

@stackizshort How hard would it be for them to pick up a random black man and give him no choice but to take the fall?

An FBI fall guy. “@Virtuous_Queen_: Who is Jeffrey Williams ?”
