Michael Brown

Updated on February 24, 2015


Blacks and white people were parading up and down the streets of Ferguson Mo, trying to get answer while since Michael Brown was killed. The Protesters demanding a change in the system. To the protesters it not a Black or white thing it's about justice for a young boy who was unarmed and facially shot.

August 9/2014 eighteen- year old Michael was shot 6 times 2 the head and four times in his body by Police-officer Darren Wilson.

Brown was shot facing Wilson, why didn't Wilson drive away and call for back up ? The Police department wants the public to believe Wilson was assaulted in his police car, is this a way to discredit the honor of Brown.

There are so many questions that needed to be answered, about the shooting of Brown. why did Darren Wilson continue to shoot, when Brown was already shot? How could he be in-fear of his life, holding a gun in his hands.

In This country there are so many incidents involving policeman's using excessive force on the elderly, women and now the killing of unharmed Black teenagers.

There are a lot of good cops who wears their badge with pride and honor but there are also bad cops who hide behind their badges, with no honor or dignity or pride just because they wears the uniform.

The fifth amendment of the constitution of the united states says that a person or suspect of a federal crime can not be tried until a grand jury determine that there is enough sufficient evidence. There was enough evidence to convince Darren Wilson of murdering Michael Brown. Darrin Wilson a white policeman walked out the grand jury a free man,

      I got to be honest with you. I would not want to be a white police officer for anything in the world. I feel like if a black policeman made a mistake and shot a black or white or hispanic there would not be as much outrage. If any at all.

      If I ever got a job as a policeman I would artificially dye my skin black so I would be protected from b.s. racial politics. Now that is some real talk.

      My hope is that the Grand Jury will seek for the truth whatever that may be. At this time as a people we are making many speculations based on past experiences and injustices, but the truth is a young man's life was ended and another person must hold in his heart what he did. That is not placing guilt on either side at this time as the facts are not clear or completely released to the public. As a people we seek for change and that comes from all walks of life without racial preference and that as a people we must work together to achieve that. Thank you for your opinion :)
