The officer, Darren Wilson, that shot Micheal Brown had no knowledge of this robbery. So how is this robbery relevant to the shooting to him being murdered in the middle of the street? The reporter asked, “Why did you release this video if it had no connection to the shooting?” Then Chief Thomas Jackson had the audacity to say “you asked for it, I held it for as long as I could.” 

Jackson stated, “The initial contact between the officer and Micheal Brown was not related to the robbery.” “They stopped them because they were walking in the middle of the street.”

There have been to too many different reports from these officers. There are many unanswered questions and they aren’t answering any questions. The only response the people and Browns family seem to get is “I don’t know,” and that response is not okay. Don’t keep doing press conferences if you are going to continue to say “I do not know.” Figure it the hell out, find out details about your officer & how he came to terms of killing Brown. Don’t try to assassinate Brown’s character and move us away from the issue. I don’t care if he robbed $50 worth of cigarillos, that does not justify you murdering someone in the street in broad daylight. 

  • You release the video to this robbery, where are the audio and video recordings from the police cars? 
  • Where is Darren Wilson? Why aren’t his statements public record yet?
  • Who are the several witnesses that have yet to be interviewed?
  • Why haven’t they been interviewed by police? Or have they been interviewed by police or Department of Justice or FBI?
  • Why were multiple shots fired at Brown after he had surrendered? 
  • Why didn’t the Chief communicate the family prior to releasing the video?
  • What the actual hell is going on? 
  • Why doesn’t the Chief know anything? 

Do y’all hear this? Are y’all seeing this?
This officer had no knowledge to this robbery So why was this video released?

They putting themselves on blast.

If you are a minority half the time that you feel that you can even call the police if you are in danger.
Watch what the media say and watch it carefully. Words slowly change once they get new information, if Mike Brown were suspect why was he shot, with his hands up wanting to surrender? 63% of the Ferguson population is black, why are there 3 black officers on the force? Why did the police wait nearly a week to release some of this information? Why do people always want to blame social media, when social media is bringing situations like Mike’s to light? You blame social media because they brought your bull to light. You put a black Captain in charge, something that probably should have been done for years.
People see who you guys really are and what you have been doing for years.

I’m not falling for any of this nonsense at the end of the day it was a 18 year old nlack teenager was shot with his hands up surrendering.

The Civil Rights movement did not end in 1968. It’s still going on.

America was built on two monumental crimes: the genocide of the Native American and the enslavement of the African American. The tendency of official America is to memorialize other peoples’ crimes and to forget its own - to seek a high moral ground as a pretext to ignore real issues.
