Michael Brown Update

And since I’m in a crabby mood anyway, I’ve got to ask, what the hell is Michael Brown’s mother doing, trying so actively to paint him as a gangster? The boy is dead, why tarnish his memory? 

Or does she honestly think that being a drug dealer gives him a better reputation than stealing? That’s just dumb because you can steal once and do it entirely on your own. But drugs mean you are part of something,  a gang. 

I’d much prefer if in the Michael Brown story we all concentrated on what matters: an unarmed person was shot six times and left lying in the street like a stray dog.

    The core claim for justifying the murder was that Michael Brown reached for the officer’s gun.
