On Saturday August 9, 2014 Ferguson police received a call about a robbery at a convenience store. The police dispatcher gave a description of the robber and informed the responding officer that the suspect was walking toward the Quick Trip.
At 12:01PM, the officer saw Michael Brown and Dorian Johnson walking along the street where the dispatcher reported the suspects were last seen. When the officer questioned the suspects, according to the Ferguson Police Department, Brown reached for the officer’s gun. One shot was fired inside the police car and several other rounds were fired outside the car.
Little else was known for six days except what Dorian Johnson, Brown’s accomplice in the robbery, was telling the media. Johnson’s description of the confrontation fueled a week of turmoil in Ferguson and an outcry from across the nation when he said his friend "never once attempted to grab for the officer's weapon." According to Johnson, Officer Wilson said, “I’ll shoot.” Brown ran putting his hands up in surrender but the officer “kept firing.” “It was horrible to watch. It was definitely like being shot like an animal.”
After Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson’s clumsy press conference, the calm that the little town had experienced the day before was shattered.
The family of Michael Brown released a statement saying they are "beyond outraged" by how the information was released in a way to "assassinate the character of their son," tying him to the robbery.
Much has been made of the “militarization” of police in Ferguson, but there were abundant reasons for law enforcement to anticipate the maelstrom that would follow the appearance of Chawn Saddam Kweli, purported “four-star general” of the New Black Panther Party, who had posted “live Battle Reports” on his Facebook and Twitter accounts:

On Tuesday, August 12th, notorious race baiter Al Sharptongue arrived in St. Louis. He preceded the arrival of the nation’s other infamous racial agitator, Jesse Jackson, by three days. With Jackson “on the ground” Sharptongue applauded the release of the officer’s name who was involved in Brown’s death noting that they shouldn’t obscure the fact that there are many more hurdles in the coming days. “We haven’t even had the funeral” for Brown, he said. “What happens when these kids see their friend laying in the casket? I’ve been through this more than one time. We’re not out of the emotions because we all of a sudden had a good night of marching.”
On Friday, mush-mouth Jackson likened the fatal shooting of Michael Brown by a police officer to a “state execution.”
“How many times was he shot?” Jackson asked on MSNBC, in a series of rhetorical questions about Brown. “And where was he shot? And why was he lying in the street for several hours? That was kind of a state execution.”
When self-interested agitators like Sharpton and Jackson rush to the scene of unrest, they do so explicitly to exploit racial sentiment and fan the flames with their malevolent political leadership.
Fault must also be laid squarely at the feet of the race-obsessed press who give these charlatans a platform for their hostilities. I contend that if the media would refrain from Livestreaming the riots 24/7 and sticking a microphone in the faces of these Black Grievance Industry advocates and training cameras on them they would disappear from sight because the vehicle for spinning Brown’s demise into a business opportunity would also vanish.
The life and teachings of Martin Luther King, Jr. are being rejected at the hands of the Black Grievance Industry Complex; the NAACP, The Congressional Black Caucus, Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow Coalition and Al Sharptongue’s NAN. We, as a nation, have descended into madness; a predatory culture that radiates a near sociopathic lack of interest in or responsibility for others and mesmerized the illiterate.
