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

Deleted FB photos show Michael Brown holding a wad of money a liquor bottle and a gun. But he is a just misunderstood future college student(or trade school, depending on who you ask).

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.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.-A man believed to be the last person seen with a University of Virginia student before she disappeared was being sought on arrest warrants charging him with reckless driving, a police chief said Sunday, adding authorities also want to ask him about the missing teen. Virginia State Police have issued warrants for Jesse Matthew on a charge of misdemeanor reckless driving, Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo said at a news conference Sunday.

Noorullah Aminyar were last seen at the Hyannis Mall Saturday evening, a National Guard source tells Cheryl Fiandaca of NBC affiliate WHDH.

Jameis Winston is trending dangerously to the point that he is more trouble than he is worth. Florida State late Friday said it would suspend Winston for the entire Clemson game. That´s up from the first-half suspension that drew criticism from some corners for being too lenient. The school cited "the results of a continuing investigation" in making the decision. In other words, there is more -- a lot more there -- in Winston´s continuing off-field issues. On the eve of the Clemson game, this move smacks of Urban Meyer´s waffling on linebacker Brandon Spikes in 2009. The former Florida linebacker was

We are quite capable of connecting, collecting and digesting information directly from the heart of the issues being debated.

Medics carrying out a vaccination programme in rebel-held northern Syria accidentally administered a muscle relaxant to up to 75 children, killing 15 of them, the opposition says. A preliminary investigation by the National Coalition found atracurium was given to the children instead of a solution used to mix measles vaccines. The packaging for the drug is said to be similar to that of the solution. All of the children who died on Tuesday were between six and 18 months old. Their parents initially accused the opposition health authorities of not storing the vaccines properly or using out-of-date medication The National

Are chimpanzees naturally violent to one another, or has the intrusion of humans into their environment made them aggressive? A new study, published Wednesday in Nature, is setting off a new round of debate around this question. The study’s authors argue that a review of all known cases when chimpanzees or bonobos in Africa killed members of their own species shows that violence is a natural part of chimp behavior and not the result of actions by humans that push chimp aggression to lethal attacks. The researchers say their analysis supports the idea that warlike violence in chimps is a natural behavior that

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. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

Lois Lerner says she is no Jeffrey Dahmer. The former Internal Revenue Service official referenced the infamous cannibalistic serial killer as she broke her silence for the first time about last year’s IRS scandal. Lerner told the website Politico that she has been the recipient of threats and hate mail, describing how one person called her “the worst person ever in the United States.” “I just thought, ‘Boy, worse than Jeffrey Dahmer?’” Lerner quipped. Lerner, who led the tax-exempt division of the IRS, was forced out of the agency after she found herself at the center of the scandal over the agency’s targeting of conservative groups
