You not finding me attractive is not going to stop me from being attractive.

I SWEAR TO GOD IF YOU KEEP THIS MINDSET YOU WILL GET SOOO MUCH CONFIDENCE

but if the people I find attractive don’t want to have sex with me then I’m clearly not that attractive…as it turns out, to a lot people.

I don’t think I’ve ever been involved in a story as much as this one.  I’m too young for R. King, wasn’t too involved in T. Martin, but Ferguson is pretty inescapable.  I will now join the chorus of speculators and write what I think happened on that fateful day.

Brown was stopped by Officer Wilson while walking on the street.  The exact reason for this is still unknown, was it profiling?  Did Brown have the cigars in his hands as some (commenters, not reports)are saying?  Was the cop a little overzealous in harassing some young Black males walking in the middle of the street?  Don’t know.

What is known is that there was a scuffle between the two that led to the firing of a gun near/in the car.  Who started it?  Who knows?  Conflicting accounts but it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense that a teenager about to go to college will physically go for a cop’s gun while the cop is inside the car.

In any case, it’s clear that Brown started running away as his body was found 30 feet away from the car.  Autopsy shows that he was shot from the front so it means he turned around to face the cop.  The original (“liberal”) story is that he turned around to surrender, and the cop shot him six times, two to the head.  One bullet went through his cheek to his collarbone meaning his head was bowed down “in surrender.”  Judging from the pics, it looks like he was only shot on the insides of his arms…and if you raise your hands above your head, that’s where bullets are likely to end up if you were being shot at.  Being shot inside the arms is less likely to happen if you had your arms to the side.

Now, some (Conservatives) are saying he started charging at the cop after he turned around but this makes absolutely no sense.  Completely illogical.  How is a guy who started running away from the cop, suddenly turn around at 30 feet, and start charging back, knowing full well, he was getting shot at?  Furthermore, when one is running or sprinting, one’s arms are likely closer to one’s body unless Brown was charging Wilson with arms outstretched and head down ala Frankenstein’s monster so why is it that the entry wounds are on the insides of his arms, right palm specifically?  People don’t charge a cop with palms outstretched. 

Of course, Ferguson is more than just about M. Brown now, and here, there is no speculation.  How is it that the Right/Conservatives cheer on the cops while the rest of the year/decade/ever they rail against government intrusion and overstepping?  The cops/govt are telling people to stop recording!!  To go home at a certain hour!!  The govt is literally repressing the people’s right to assemble and speak!

How does the Right cheer on Ted Bundy’s lawlessness and the gun toting goons who protected him from the law, and at the very same time, cheer on for cops who tear gas unarmed civilians, people in their own backyards, kids, arrest 90 year old women, break down cameras, and tell people to go home then block their entryway home?

How are they not completely incensed by the government’s actions…could it be…racism?  Cause the one’s being oppressed are black?  And they kinda deserve for it being so poor, and blaming everything on the system?

What if, just maybe, Ferguson residents decided to exercise their 2nd Amendment right?  Open-carry?  Just walk around with a rifle around their shoulders like white people in Texas, no biggie.

Other thoughts:

Michael Brown’s character is not on trial here.  The actions of the cop is.  Ferguson PD’s release of the video with the name drop was an attempt to shift the news media and paint Brown as a “thug.”

A picture of Brown with his middle finger up does not make him a “thug” who deserves to get killed.

Looters aren’t protestors, they’re opportunists fuckfaces who want to get some free shit.  Protestors demand answers for Brown’s death as well as the disproportionate amount of stops they get, the death of other unarmed black men, and you know, racist policies.  White looters looted after the Boston Bombing but that’s none of my business.

White unarmed men are killed by cops too.  It doesn’t get a lot of coverage because of the media but it also doesn’t get a lot of coverage because there isn’t a history of a racist systems wherein racism is perpetuated ala white guy dying at the hands of a white cop.

Yes, statistically speaking, Blacks commit crimes against Whites at a higher rate…and they are duly prosecuted, and statistically speaking, jailed at higher rates for longer.  Not a lot of controversy.  They don’t get to walk around on paid leave with their families.  —- This is something Rush and the Right always seem to miss when they compare two different situations and cry REVERSE RACISM!

Higher crime rates among the African American community is not carte-blance to discriminate against all AA.  That’s just racism masquerading as safety.

I think that’s all I want to say after 2 weeks of staying silent on this issue…for now.

  • Question: the store owner has said they did not believe that was michael brown on the security tapes - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    Source?

    Another story reports that M. Brown’s friend confesses to the cigar robbery.

    http://www.wdef.com/news/national/story/Lawyer-Friend-confirms-that-he-and-shooting/6VIgmQ_8ZUi7Vf9Q1jIfmg.cspx

    It is strange that the media hasn’t talked to store owner for his thoughts on the whole thing.  I hate the speculation but he might be keeping quiet for fear of repercussion.

    There’s just too many information and misinformation atm.

Apparently, in an attempt to paint Michael Brown as anything less than innocent, people have been spreading an image of an armed 17-year-old Joda Cain around the web and claiming that it’s Michael Brown.

Joda Cain is accused of murder in my home state of Oregon, and has literally jack shit to do with the Michael Brown murder in Ferguson, Missouri. THESE ARE NOT THE SAME PEOPLE. Anyone using the above image as “proof” that Michael Brown “deserved” to be shot should be called out for defamation, and promptly thrown down a spiral staircase. 

The bottom photo is the real Michael Brown. He was called a “gentle giant” by friends and family. He was unarmed and innocent, and he was murdered by a police officer after being shot more than seven times at close range. Witnesses, including a friend who was with him at the time of the shooting, all agree that he was doing nothing deserving of such violent actions from the officer who gunned him down. 

HOLY FUCKING SHIT. ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS?

I actually saw that above pic and thought it was him…HOWEVER, “gentle giants” don’t steal cigar and shove store clerks out of the way.
