Ferguson shooting: What´s
known now about Michael Brown

Christian Science Monitor, by David Clark Scott

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 8/17/2014 6:07:15 PM

Was Michael Brown a "gentle giant," a cigar thief, or a gang member? The black teenager had no adult criminal record, according to the St. Louis County prosecutor. Initial media profiles noted that family and friends described "Big Mike" as not "the type to fight" and "funny, silly, he would make you laugh." (Snip) Michael Brown had struggled in school, but had graduated Aug. 1 from Normandy High School, and had been staying at his grandmother´s apartment in Ferguson this summer. Family members said that hre planned to start this past week at Vatterott Educational Centers, a vocational technical college,

Another tiny puzzle piece. He was not living with his parents, but with his grandmother. No explanation given.

A few days ago I googled the punk and found a picture of him holding a large automatic pistol, with a rolled up wad of cash in his mouth, sitting at a table with another punk, with bottles of booze on the table. A day later I noticed the pictures were scrubbed from the internet. The image control police are on the job.

Swisher sweets and other small flavored cigars are used to make what is called a blunt in the Ghetto drug community. They are cut open and the tobacco is replaced with pot. The sweet fragrance hides the smell of the pot when they are smoked in public. Little Mikie was not so innocent. The media reports are saying he stole cigarettes in the same way they said ravon Martin was carrying iced tea when in fact he was carrying watermelon punch which is mixed with cough syrup to make the ghetto drug "drank". The press are liars.

While the police officer may not have known about the robbery incident - Michael Brown certainly did. And he couldn´t have known that the officer didn´t know. It´s entirely possible he reacted violently to the officer fearing an impending arrest.

According to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, you´re not supposed to say anything bad about black-americans. They´re the same as everyone else, including Amish kids.

Yeah, but I will tell you, Amish kids love the things they have, as most American kids do as well. Black kids, not so much. If they did, why are their neighborhoods such slums.

LBJ was a massive failure, his victories are now massive losses. If blacks had any self respect, they would own up to their own failures.

Here we go. He was funny, silly, gentle, and my fav, he "struggled" in school, but managed to graduate. Oh, and "not the kind to fight". But, he WAS the kind to commit robbery and assault. These people all make me sick. And of course, he was ready to start school again. The only struggle this punk had was acting like a human being. I hope someone verifies his plans to go to school; I bet my next dollar, there was a "mixup", cuz they can´t find his paperwork.

He was not living with his parents. He was hanging out with "friends" and occasionally staying overnight with grandma.

An eyewitness described his dress as including flipflops, but thie video in the store clearly shows some kind of high-topped sneakers. This was the same person who supposedly saw him raise his hands and say "don´t shoot". Reliable? Doubtful.

One sharp-eyed person said there was no blood on the back of his tee shirt, so not shot in back. If he had been shot in the back, it is unlikely his hands would have been up, etc., etc., etc.

The eyewitnesses have not cross-checked their stories.

Following on #1...

Drudge has a post from IJR containing an audio-video taken as Obama´s other son lay in the street - uncovered. The audio contains an eyewitness account of the shooting that supports the notion the officer fired in self-defense, and, that there will be no entry wounds in the back. The punk was charging the officer.

Interestingly, the video now jams up and doesn´t load if you try to play it. I was able to play it an hour or so ago. Now, it too has been rendered not viewable by the public.

Elsewhere a "profile" talks about his smoking marijuana ("everyone does it") and says that taking things from stores is sort of SOP for the neighborhood. No big deal.

The weaselly guy who was with him, his little sidekick Dorian, has not been arrested or charged with anything. Not even being the person Brown handed off the first box of cigarillos to, and who stood by and did nothing when Brown physically assaulted the store clerk.

Dorian has had a warrant out for his arrest since a robbery in 2011. Iit seems he moved out of the jurisdictional area for extradidion. But he has that open item out there.

Does he want to go down for any of this? Solid citizen Dorian also has a girlfriend and a 4 month old illegit child.

When they are talking about Saint Michael, it is clear that he was not as bad as he could have been (in that community). But hey, he was beginning to show his stuff with that little store clerk.

"His family tried to get him to play football. Brown was too timid for the sport, Mr. Ewing said." Really? He probably didn´t play football because he didn´t meet the academic or disciplinary standards. I don´t know a whole lot about Michael Brown. I do know that the usual race hustlers are profiting from this event. The citizens of Ferguson must be living a nightmare.

Michael Brown´s family were angry when the store video was released because they had not finished laying out his childhood photos (a la TrayVON Martin) plus had not completed the biography (also a la TrayVON Martin.

The newest Black Grievance Industry representative, Benjamin Crump, was a little slow off the blocks last week. Watch this guy, he will be at every black community blow-up right beside Jesse and Revrum Al.

The Brown family envisioned untold riches like TrayVON´s mama, Saint Sabrina, and they were pi--ed! Too slow with the Michael Brown Foundation, tradmarking Michael´s name and image, and they hadn´t started the grief tour through the black churches of our country complete with wastebaskets to collect the grief money for their foundation.

He was too "timid" to play football?????? But, obviously not too timid to rob a store and assault the clerk? Do these idiots know there is actual PROOF of this?? Can´t take much more of this. It´s as bad as St. Trayvon.

3) Shoving a police officer
4) Slugging a police officer
5) Trying to grab the weapon of a police officer
6) Disobeying a police officer
7) Charging a police officer

FTA- " A witness emerged from the bathroom to see the alleged robbery.
“According to [name of witness redacted], [name of store cashier redacted ] was trying to lock the door until Brown returned
the merchandise to him,” says the police report."
The eyewitness validates the video of Brown slamming
and robbing the clerk.
CNNMSNBC continues to pretend it isn´t
Saint Michael strong arming the Asian clerk.
BTW- Why isn´t this a hate crime ?
FTA- " In addition to the Ferguson police report, conservative blogger Pat Dollard
published images of Michael Brown
flashing gang signs, under the headline
"EXPOSED: Michael Brown
Was A Member Of The Ultraviolent ‘Bloods’ Street Gang."
No doubt from the photos at patdollard.com that
baby Michael is flashing gang signs.
The person who was posting on Twitter from their apartment as
things were happening in real-time knew that Saint Michael had stolen
some rellos ( cigars ) from the convenience store.
Must have been a daily occurrence .

The otherwise stumbling, bumbling Ferguson police dept was astutely brilliant when they insisted upon --- against Holder´s orders --- releasing the cigar robbery/bullying store video of the real Big Mike in action, a few minutes before his death. This revealing video stopped the media driven, Trayvon-like, faux Mike sainthood narrative in its tracks. Yes, sadly, in today´s infotainment, internet driven world, there IS first a public trial for the impatient public. Smart players will get opinion-shaping evidence presented ASAP, else be beaten before the real trial starts. This is actually a public service, since history --- like Rodney King or Trayvon --- shows that a big disconnect between the public narrative and the actual facts can be devastating and almost impossible to overcome.

Ebola Outbreak: CDC Estimates As Many

As many as 500,000 people could be infected with Ebola virus disease by the end of January, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The CDC estimate, due to be released this week, is based on “dynamic modeling” and assumes no additional aid to help battle the disease, a person familiar with the report told the Washington Post. Infectious-disease experts, aid workers and global health advocates said the number of Ebola cases is increasing much more rapidly than the World Health Organization, or WHO, had projected, especially in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, collectively the

On Sunday, a gaggle of queer folks will be joining the “People’s Climate March,” a rally in New York City projected to attract more than 100,000 attendees. Unfortunately, those who could help the cause the most are the least likely to show up. Marching under banners such as “Queers for the Climate,” LGBT climate activists are, first and foremost, agitating for action on climate change. But they are also saying something about what LGBT activism should be about, and saying something quite different from the (current) gay mainstream. The question is whether they can make an impact.

Istanbul -- The latest ISIS advance in Syria has brought a swath of the country´s north-central Kurdish region under siege, with Kurdish leaders warning of another humanitarian crisis without international intervention. The Syrian Kurdish town of Kobani (Ayn al-Arab in Arabic) is an island, surrounded by ISIS on three fronts and the Turkish border to the north. The town was already mostly blockaded by ISIS, but in the past three days some 60 nearby villages fell under ISIS control, according to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

So much for all that outrage. Nearly 90 percent of Americans say the recent outcry about domestic violence in the NFL hasn’t changed how much professional football they watch — and less than a third of the nation believes NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell should resign. That’s the result of an exclusive NBC News/Marist poll, which also finds that a majority of Americans – including nearly six in 10 self-described football fans – say they disapprove of the way the NFL has handled the domestic-violence allegations. The poll comes after a series of damaging stories indicating that NFL officials had turned

DENVER — Republican Rep. Cory Gardner is leading Democratic Sen Mark Udall in Colorado, according to a new independent poll released Thursday. The 48-40 Gardner lead among likely voters in The Quinnipiac University Poll contrasts with two other independent polls released earlier this month that found Udall tied or slightly ahead in the race. It is from the same pollster that found Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper 10 points behind his Republican challenger, a finding that also conflicted with other polls that have shown that race essentially tied. The Quinnipiac poll surveyed 1,211 voters by telephone from Sept. 10-15 and has

One has to wonder just how often members of President Barack Obama´s national security team talk with each other. The federal government is famously gigantic, but the president´s Cabinet is not, particularly if you narrow it to the inner circle that crafts military and national security strategy. One would assume that it wouldn´t be all that difficult to prepare a coherent approach to an international crisis, particularly as Cabinet members testify before Congress amidst deep skepticism of the White House´s strategy to destroy the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, or in the administration´s preferred acronym, ISIL).

BEIRUT - The militant Islamic State group released a video warning the United States that its fighters are waiting for it in Iraq if President Barack Obama sends troops there, as his top general said may happen if the current strategy of airstrikes fails. The slick 52-second video entitled "Flames of War" shows militants blowing up tanks and images of wounded U.S. soldiers. It then shows a clip of Obama saying that combat troops will not be returning to Iraq, ending with a text overlay that reads "fighting has just begun."

But they certainly didn’t act like a movement that was winning.

He was a leading figure in one of the biggest climate change marches to date. But it seems Robert F Kennedy Jr was not so forthcoming when it came to questions about his own carbon footprint. Confronted by a reporter asking if he would give up his phone and car, the environmental lawyer became visibly irate before grabbing the microphone and accusing her of ´destroying democracy´ as a member of the press. The interview in New York yesterday afternoon started with a conversation about the number of flyers produced for the event, which Kennedy Jr claimed was necessary to garner ´people power´.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages.

Last week, esteemed doctor and one of our ObamaCare Architect Overlords penned a column for the Atlantic that should win a Pulitzer Prize for passive-aggressive shaming. Although Emanuel claims that *he* doesn´t want to live past the age of 75, the article itself could have been a listicle titled, "Top 15 Reasons No One Over 75 Should Receive Healthcare."

The decision was made “with equality and inclusion in mind,” school President Michael Roth and Trustee Chairman Joshua Boger wrote in an email to students on Monday, Business Insider reported. “Our residential Greek organizations inspire loyalty, community and independence. That’s why all our students should be eligible to join them.” The school has focused on issues with Greek life ever since a woman filed a lawsuit against Wesleyan two years ago
