Michael Brown Spent Last Weeks
Grappling With Problems and Promise

New York Times, by John Eligon

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/25/2014 11:30:20 AM

FERGUSON, Mo. — It was 1 a.m. and Michael Brown Jr. called his father, his voice trembling. He had seen something overpowering. In the thick gray clouds that lingered from a passing storm this past June, he made out an angel. And he saw Satan chasing the angel and the angel running into the face of God. Mr. Brown was a prankster, so his father and stepmother chuckled at first. “No, no, Dad! No!” the elder Mr. Brown remembered his son protesting. “I’m serious.” And the black teenager from this suburb of St. Louis, who had just graduated from high

And he spent his last moments assaulting a man half his size and then "grappling" with a police officer when he should have been working, not smoking pot and parading down the middle of the street. He´s dead because he´s a thug. Period.

A young man using increasing amounts of marijuana. Hallucinations. A well-known characteristic of marijuana use.

Wouldn´t you think the NYT would think of that? Or does it not fit the narrative they are pushing?

People can experience hallucinations when they´re high on illicit drugs such as amphetamines, cocaine, LSD or ecstasy. Hallucinations can also happen during withdrawal from alcohol or drugs if you suddenly stop taking them.

Drug-induced hallucinations are usually visual, but may affect other senses. Hallucinations include flashes of light or abstract shapes, or may even take the form of an animal or person. More often, visual distortions occur that alter the person´s perception of the world around them.
These hallucinations can happen on their own or they can occur as a part of drug-induced psychosis. After long-term use, they may cause schizophrenia. Read an account of a drug-induced psychotic breakdown.

Some people take cannabis to "calm themselves" and relieve their psychotic symptoms, without realising that in the longer term, the cannabis makes the psychosis worse.

For those who might be unfamiliar with terms, cannabis is marijuana.

This puff piece is about 90% positive and 10% negative about Mike Brown.

But given that it is from the NY Timewaster, that is about 9.9999% more negative than I would have expected.

Until someone gets their hands on his juvi file (if one exists), we have no idea what he was really like as a kid.

The only factual thing we have to judge him on is the tape, and that showed him to very clearly be a very big bully thug. It also gives a reasonable expectation of what his mindset was a few minutes later when he had his meeting with the officer.

All the nice words from his family aside, we want facts. And the NY Timewaster sure didn´t provide much of those...

There are a lot of nuggets about the ´gentle giant´ buried in the story:
-[P]olice say he was caught on a security camera stealing a box of cigars
-he dabbled in drugs and alcohol.
-He had taken to rapping in recent months, producing lyrics that were by turns contemplative and vulgar
-As a boy, Michael was a handful.
-Brown was accused of stealing an iPod.
-Mr. Brown showed a rebellious streak.
-There were times when her son would talk back
-Mr. Brown occasionally hinted at frustration with his family.
-Mr. Brown was not the best student. His grades were kind of edgy
-He occasionally smoked marijuana and drank alcohol

For the sake of Brown´s eternal soul, I hope he did come to believe. God´s fingerprints are in all of creation and He reveals Himself in many ways to those who seek Him. He certainly knew Brown´s days on earth were short. Perhaps He chose not to wait for Brown to meet a preacher or a mentor to show him the way.

This man was a potential cop killer and CNN and the media have been eulogizing him as if he was a head of state ,
a man of peace like Gandhi or the Pope.
CNN has absolutely been the worst.
The funereal music used to introduce every piece about Brown the past two weeks has been beyond maudlin.
Today Carole Costello of CNN reverently asked for silence as Michael Brown´s father entered the church.
After a couple of minutes , she had to admit that the man she thought was Michael Brown´s father
was actually Trayvon Martin´s father.
Oops .
Brown´s bio , even after being sanitized by the NYT could be written about many if not the majority of black teens.
The story begins with unmarried teen parents and takes the familiar path of dysfunction , poverty, poor grades, rap music, no ambition ( He " planned " on going to trade school.
He " talked about " getting a job at a grocery store )
no life skills , gangs, drugs , alcohol and " tussles " with others.
And until that dynamic is changed ,
the cycle will continue.

Re #22, yes. The mother (now 34) would have been only 16 when she gave birth to Michael Brown. The father (now 36) would have been 18, Michael´s age. They never married.

Dad was hit with court action for failing to pay child support and was arrested (in 2007) on drug charges.

Michael did not live with his mother and her shackup boyfriend. He did not live with his father and his new wife. He bunked with buddies; he sometimes visited grandma. He was a throwaway kid for how long?

As with Trayvon Martin and his egg and sperm donors, Michael is worth more to his "parents" now than he was when he was alive. That is what is really sad here. That and the unwarranted condemnation of Officer Wilson for simply doing his duty and protecting himself after he´d already been seriously assaulted.

It´s too bad he didn´t run into a couple such as Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy at a young age. He might have been another Michael Oher with the right guidance. Wishful thinking probably but a real indictment of the problems inherent in the black community brought about by the lack of intact families and a distant father. Good things happen to boys and young men when there are good men in their lives. I´m thinking of the Little League teams at the World Series this year and the impact of coaches and interested families.

Schoolchildren in Texas may be at risk from Ebola today after five children who attend four different Dallas schools came in close contact with the first patient diagnosed with the deadly virus on U.S. soil. Officials said on Wednesday that the students were in school this week after possibly being in contact with the patient over the weekend when he had become contagious with the deadly virus. The Ebola patient was named today as Thomas Eric Duncan, a Liberian national in his mid-forties, who had traveled to the U.S. from Liberia on September 20 to visit his family. Scroll down

Voters overwhelmingly reject extending legal protections to the new illegal immigrant children who surged across the U.S.-Mexico border this year, according to a new Rasmussen Reports poll released Wednesday. Less than a third of voters say they want illegal immigrant children to be housed in their home states, and 53 percent said the children shouldn’t be allowed to attend taxpayer-supported public schools. The Supreme Court has ruled that all children, regardless of legal status, are entitled to primary and secondary education in public schools, leaving some districts to face a surge of children with poor or nonexistent English language skills and

Netanyahu, in a briefing in New York with reporters who accompanied him on his trip to the US, said that as Israel’s prime minister he did not understand the criticism of Jews legally buying and moving into property in Jerusalem. “Arabs in Jerusalem freely buy apartments, and nobody says that is forbidden.

The White House on Wednesday strongly criticized reports of Israeli settlement construction in East Jerusalem, on the same day that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with President Obama. Israeli officials have reportedly given final approval to the creation of more than 2,500 homes in East Jerusalem. "This development will only draw condemnation from the international community, distance Israel from even its closest allies [and] poison the atmosphere, not only with the Palestinians but also with the very Arab governments with which Prime Minister Netanyahu said he wanted to build relations," White House press secretary Josh Earnest said at a briefing.

Breitbart News previously reported that the legislation containing "Gun Violence Restraining Orders" was put forth by State Assembly members Nancy Skinner and Das Williams, both Democrats, following Elliot Rodger´s May 23rd Santa Barbara attack. The new law allows families to petition a court for the seizure of guns from a family member, and then empowers police to confiscate firearms from that family member. According to the

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. 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. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

Multiple sources confirmed to Fox News the incident, which took place in an elevator during Obama´s Sept. 16 visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The incident was first reported by The Washington Post and the Washington Examiner.

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week. As expected, the drop was steepest at 7 PM, with 60 Minutes (1.1) off by 69%

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. 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.

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.).

Multiple sources tell The Hill that a group of Tea Party leaders in the state are meeting Wednesday to try to decide whether they should go to bat for the incumbent this fall or sit out of

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.

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,

President Obama this week committed professional suicide. Let me explain. There is a theory in politics that once a leader has fired 50 or more people from his or her administration, he or she is finished. The reason being that by creating so many enemies ‘outside the tent’, the tent itself becomes too deluged with poisonous bile to avoid sinking into a quagmire of back-stabbing ignominy. Obama went a lot further than firing 50 people. He managed to single-handedly alienate 200,000 employees in the American intelligence agencies by going on 60 Minutes and ruthlessly chucking them all under a bus
