Ferguson Police Murder Black Teen in Missouri

Think Rodney King riots of the 1990's but on a smaller scale. But the white government who governs over Ferguson, Missouri, which is over 60% black, faces a real predicament. Mike Brown, 18, was just about to start college when a fatal incident occurred while walking home with a friend.

There are at least two eyewitnesses stating the following events:

Mike Brown and his friend were walking home in the road, not on the sidewalk. This is about as guilty as they would ever get. A Ferguson Policeman noticed the two blacks in his car and approached until the car was adjacent with the driver and Mike adjacent to one another. It is said that the police officer said, "get on the fucking sidewalk" and the officer grabbed Mike's neck through the car window. To me, this seems VERY improbable and impossible to do. Mike is a big guy, reaching from a car and grabbing his neck is impossible. Maybe the eyewitness meant to say, the police officer attempted to do this and Mike and his friend began to flee. This fits the other eyewitness stating that she saw the officer chasing Mike on foot.

Clearly, at some point, the officer shouted a warning to stop or he will fire. Because the eyewitness saw Mike stop and raise his hands up surrendering, showing he had no weapon of any type. Then, the police officer simply murders, in cold blood, firing two shots into Mike.

According to the police version, as the officer opened his car door, Mike lunged at the officer and the two struggled inside the vehicle for the weapon when it went off but not hurting Mike. After this, Mike took off and the officer fired twice.

Which one do you believe?

It seems very easy to prove, that is, if there is a bullet hole in the car, then it supports the police version, if there is none. then obviously, with two eyewitnesses, the police are lying to cover for their man in uniform.

Still, the police department is not releasing the name of the officer who murdered Mike. I can understand, having him murdered also, will not solve anything. Why was Mike Brown left in the street dead for hours before help arrived? That, alone, is unfathomable. Even after his death, the police have acted like a military force against those who live there and protesting the killing. Excessive force reminds one of the Kent State murders by the National Guard in 1970, after all, even police can panic or make bad decisions.

The police have tear gased and told the press to leave. They have issued a no fly zone over the town because they claim one of their helicopters was fired at, yet, no proof was provided to the media. Dressed in riot gear, they have told residents protesting from their own yards, to go inside!

Everything about this situation smells of corruption, of cover-up, by the police department. What is also amazing is that the mayor of the town has remained silent. Yet, other questions come to mind- such as, if 60% of the population is black, why have they not voted out the mayor or elected more city council so they are well represented? Yes, the city council is mostly white, but the black community allowed this to happen.

It is hard to believe that a teen when confronted with police officer over something so trivial would confront the officer and fight him in the car. It is much more likely, the teens fled.

There now seems to be direct connection with the cigar robbery video and the victim. It is fairly clear the person stealing the few cigars is Mike and his friend. It is clear he took a few and shoved the clerk aside as he left. The police issued an "all points bulletin". So, when the police officer noticed the two walking in the street, the officer was probably aware of this robbery, if he was not, he was aware once cigars were seen. But, when did the officer know this? Regardless, Mike stopped after fleeing and turned around with hands up, yet, the officer shot him dead. Mike had no weapons. It still is murder.

      Well, now there is reason to believe that Mike may have been involved in a strong arm robbery at a store, stealing cigars. Hmmm....There is a video with perhaps Mike in it showing this. The clerk was punched. But, the images in the photos show a big dude like Mike, BUT, was it him? The police may have mistaken Mike for the robber OR was Mike the man?

      Anonymous outed the officer on twitter, and their account was suspended.

      Let's see if anything is done about him, or he gets a pass, as they always do.

      New witness steps forward in Michael Brown shooting, provides new video

      Aug 14, 2014 8:56am PDT by Jen Hayden

      Another witness has emerged in the shooting of Michael Brown:

      Mitchell told News 4 she saw a door close on a police car. An officer was inside and Brown, Jr. was on the outside. She said the two were arm wrestling through the car window. Mitchell said she then tried to pull out her phone to record. Shots then rang out.

      “It just didn’t look right for them to be arm wrestling,” Mitchell said. “The first gun shot came from the window, so I just started getting out of the way.”

      According to Mitchell, Brown, Jr, began to run away after the first shot was fired.

      “After the shot, the kid just breaks away. The cop follows him, kept shooting, the kid’s body jerked as if he was hit. After his body jerked he turns around, puts his hands up, and the cop continues to walk up on him and continues to shoot until he goes all the way down,” Mitchell said.

      Of course there is! You are asking the police to investigate itself.....what do YOU think the outcome will be? They are NOT unbiased. NOT fair. NOT able to be objective. Obviously--or the dude who shot an unarmed teenager would have been fired immediately. You do not shoot for sport, just because you can.

      I don't think all the facts are out yet. Too many people are wildly speculating before the investigators have given any indication of their findings. Also, Barack Obama has once again inserted his nose into the racial divide. There was absolutely no reason for him to ask Holder to sick the FBI on the local police department before their investigation was complete.

      Well, whatever eyewitness account you hear, it is a gross injustice and racist. No wonder the riots are happening. No wonder why the police are not releasing his name and remaining silent. No wonder why the Feds are now investigating it.

      EYEWITNESS ACCOUNT OF THE MIKE BROWN FERGUSON MURDER.

      "He got on his knees and said ‘Don’t shoot me, don’t shoot me’…He shot him dead in the head. Then walked up to his body and shot him 4 more times. Looked him in his eyes, paused for a minute, and shot him four more times"

      "The tension in a St. Louis suburb following the shooting of an unarmed African-American teenager by a police officer was thrown into stark relief Sunday night in a video captured by CNN of a police officer yelling a derogatory phrase at protesters.

      "Bring it, all you f**king animals! Bring it!" the officer said in the exchange."

      *****

      KKK with guns. IMO

      (keep in mind the Bundy's and Tea Party's of the world who are allowed to congregate and protest WITH GUNS.)

      ---Police brutality happens to white kids too: but I have yet to hear of one shot by them point blank, execution style.
