Who was the real Michael Brown? The kid
from a broken home who beat the
odds to get into college, the rapper who
sang about ´Feds´ and smoking weed,
or the robbery suspect caught on video
minutes before cop shot him dead...

It is two weeks since Michael Brown was shot dead in the street by Ferguson City police officer Darren Wilson. (Snip) But as the protests subside, another conflict has begun to emerge. Because it isn´t only witness accounts of what happened that day that are at odds. It is the version of the victim himself that has become increasingly hard to square with his family´s insistence that this 6ft4 292lb teenager was nothing but a ´Gentle Giant´. They slammed the release of footage of Michael taking part in a strong-arm robbery just moments before the fatal shooting as unrelated and

FTA:

He rapped in matter-of-fact tones about smoking weed at 9 and having sex since 12. He rapped about all the ´baby daddies who don’t pay child support´ and do jail time. His own father was prosecuted for being more than 12 months in arrears on child support in 2012 and in 2007 plead guilty to a drugs possession felony for marijuana that carries a sentence of 5 years in jail.

Article also says he had no police record as an adult. He was just 18. So, what came before that?

Pastor Ewing said he was "turning his life around". What was that all about?

The video showed a big man who was used to using his size to bully smaller persons. A not-gentle giant.

Meanwhile here is a friend´s description of Officer Wilson:

The Ferguson police officer who has gone into hiding after being named as the cop who shot Michael Brown is not a "cold-blood murderer" as depicted by his harshest critics, but a man without a temper who is "struggling" with the aftermath of the shooting, his friend told ABC News.

All I can base my opinion on is the tape, and the tape doesn´t lie. He was a bully thug. And he was a thief.

And, if the rumor is correct, he was a violent thug who attacked a cop and tried to steal his gun.

And so he got shot to death.

Time will tell, but that is what I know, and what I believe based on the facts that have been presented to me at this point...

Where are the facebook photos ?
His record before he was 18 ?
TM´s mother could have written the article and picked the baby pictures.

In the meantime, a cop who went to work just like any other day has his life destroyed and has to stay in hiding.

Thanks Zippy. /s

I can remember a day when police officer´s were looked up to. They do their duty every shift to protect us from the likes of Michael Brown yet in a twisted way Brown is portrayed to be this poor, innocent, big hearted black kid that likes rap music and wouldn´t hurt a flea. His so called "murder" was a call to arms in the black community. It gives them a reason to vent their hatred of the cops and the in what they perceive as an unfair justice system. Why wait for all the facts when it´s more convenient to cause "whitey cop" of unjustifiably shoting poor Michael in the back. Add the professional racists, Al Sharpton and Jesse "Baby Daddy" Jackson to the mix and you´ve got the perfect storm of "black rage" incitement. To hell with gathering all the facts in the case, convict Officer Wilson now. Right Governor Nixon? Nixon made it perfectly clear that officer Wilson must be vigorously prosecuted even prior to the conclusion of the investigation. Nixon, in typical Democrat style, is race baiting for political gain. If Nixon was rushed by a 6´4", 300 pound man in a threatening manner he´d curl up in the fetal position and cry like a little girl at a Justin Beiber concert.

I think we all know why this has happened - socialism has taken the spine out of so many people by creating a malignant dependency upon government. Under these conditions, what incentive is there for fathers to stick around once their job as parent has been rendered useless? Schools indoctrinate rather than teach, society no longer demands even a modicum of respect for institutions i.e. church, scouting, volunteer work etc. ergo restless youth become wild and ungovernable and adopt the meme that society owes them.

While I give Officer Wilson the benefit of the doubt, I don´t think it´s necessary to demonize Michael Brown. Yes, you could call him a bit of thug if you insist though there isn´t much evidence of it beyond the video; he had no record. Yes, he smoked some weed. A lot of L-dotters smoked a certain amount in our youths as well. He did a lot of things kids from lower class black communities and also a things a lot of white kids from good homes do. But he wasn´t in a gang, had managed to graduate from high school and was heading for an honest career. I saw his sister on the news a while the rioting was going on. She was not a ghetto type and was sincerely distressed about the rioting and said that is not what Michael would have wanted. I was touched by a photo of his mom at his funeral. Trayvon´s mother she isn´t even though she may be following a similar path. There were only 3 black cops in Ferguson - pretty odd, wouldn´t you say, given the fact that 67% of its citizens are black?

#8, Ferguson has only been majority black for a few years. In 2000, it was majority white by a significant margin. Are they supposed to fire all of the white police officers and hire black ones because the demographics of the community changed over the last few years?

When did telling the truth about someone who has been misrepresented become "demonizing"?

This man has been represented as a "gentle giant", just a big kid who wouldn´t hurt a fly. But our eyes tell us something different.

They´ve turned a mild mannered officer ´ doing his duty, into a cold-blooded murderer. Now that´s demonization.

He was living with neither his mom and her shack up boyfriend nor his deadbeat druggie dad and his new wife. He bunked wit some friends (maybe Dorian?) and occasionally visited his grandma. In one of his rap lyrics he wrote that his mom "doesn´t care a damn about me.

None are so blind as those who will not see... the Truth. Not manufactured stories intended to deceive. And to harm decent men like Officer Wilson.

Too bad the race hustlers want extortion rather than real improvement in the black community. If they had chosen to use Brown´s story as a cautionary tale, don´t steal, don´t challenge a police officer, then more Brown´s would not be standing in the wings. But they chose to exonerate Brown´s crimes to fit the narrative whose only natural conclusion is more crime and more dead youths.

Poster #11, about halfway down the article, 2 inches below the picture of Michael frowning in a blue and red stripped shirt, it says he was already enrolled in Vatterott Technical College. While I have never attempted to enroll there, and do not know for certain, I think it is more a for-profit organization (with outlets in many states)...if one has the cash (or can get a "student" loan) for the tuition, one is enrolled, regardless of one´s grade point average or test scores.

To the respected and appreciated #12: To me, telling the truth doesn´t mean telling just one side - assigning one person to sainthood and the other to worthless thug hell.

Sorry to be the skunk at the garden party. I should not be here since I am so out of step. I have two fatal achilles heels - seeing both sides; and even worse - compassion (though not for the jihadists, stalinists & commisariat).

#8 - Thank you - that might explain it.

A new report showing the continued pileup of unpaid medical bills in states that didn’t expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act is escalating criticism on these Republican-led areas of the country to expand the health insurance program for the poor. The report out last week from the Obama administration shows the costs of uncompensated care are projected to fall by $5.7 billion this year largely because millions of Americans are eligible for expanded Medicaid insurance for the poor under the Affordable Care Act and they are taking advantage. About half of U.S. states opted in favor of expanding Medicaid which

Andrew McCarthy exposes the same fraud we have continued to share.

A fire at an FAA radar center in Aurora that grounded hundreds of flights in Chicago and across the country was deliberately set but "is no terrorist act," police said this morning. "There is no terrorist act," said Aurora police Chief Greg Thomas. "This is a local issue with a contract employee and nothing else." The employee was found in the basement of the radar facility suffering from self-inflicted wounds, police said. He was taken to a hospital and the radar center was shut down and evacuated.That prompted a groundstop order that halted all flights in and out of O´Hare and Midway airports.

Las Vegas schools are considering plans to teach children as young as 5 about masturbation and homosexuality. Clark County School District proposed the changes during closed-door meetings with community members last week, EAG News reported. Among the changes include education of homosexuality as early as age 5 and giving everyone “respect regardless of who they are attracted to,” the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported. Students of that age would also be taught that “touching and rubbing one’s genitals to feel good is called masturbation,” the newspaper said.

The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second.

President Obama said the shooting death of a black teen by a white police officer last month in Ferguson, Missouri, exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that “stains the heart of black children.” Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, Mr. Obama said the death of Michael Brown “awakened our nation” to a reality that black citizens already understood. “In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” Mr. Obama said. “Too many young men of color feel targeted by law

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said.

The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,
