Ferguson Police Chief Identifies Officer Who Shot Michael Brown

(AllHipHop News) The first step in justice for 18 year old Michael Brown. Earlier today (August 15th) , Ferguson Police chief Tom Jackson identified the police officer who fatally shot Michael Brown.

According to Jackson at a news conference held earlier today, six year veteran Darren Wilson was the cop who shot Brown last Saturday (August 9th). Wilson’s name was hidden for almost a week due to safety concerns and he is currently on paid administrative leave.

Jackson states that Wilson was responding to a strong-arm robbery at a Ferguson convenience store when he encountered Brown and Dorian Johnson. Jackson did not disclose if Brown was a suspect in the robbery. Jackson states that either Brown or Johnson attempted to grab Wilson’s gun before the officer shot Brown.

No word on if Wilson will face criminal charges.

    Rip to mike brown….But let’s all be honest here….This fool punked a small old ass store clerk and pushed him around for some swishas. He ain’t deserve to die over that shit, but come on dog, like wtf?!?!?! you graduated from Howard and you stealing swishas from the store? Intimidating some old man?!?!? Again, he ain’t deserve to die, and the cop should be charged and convicted but don’t bring the shit on yourself by doing dumb shit like that. It starts with the mental. We gotta change the way we think, the way we move…..I hope Darren Wilson isn’t black either, cuz alot of you fools sound like racist f*cks on here. The only reason i believe this outrage is this big is because people automatically assumed the cop was white (still can be, dnt know yet) if it woulda been known off rip that it was a black cop (still can/can’t be) the outrage wouldn’t be as big….. Hate the establishment, don’t make white synonymous with establishment though cuz it’s not always the case.and the establishment wants it to be race related, cuz as long as blacks are made at whites or vice versa, it takes attention away from the real world issues going on they don’t want us knowing about.

    • SupaDoopaGhost1

      He didnt graduate from anywhere. HE would have been starting college this week. And with that lack of knowledge of the situation insantly makes whatever the hell else you said in your post invalid as fvxk..

      • Eli Pinilla

        Graduated high school, howard, he graduated. That’s the point being sold….I’m not saying he should be dead. I’m saying he shouldn’t have been in that situation in the first place. You seen the video stills?!?!?! you read my whole comment or just stop at howard?!?! doesn’t change a thing I said.

      • Savimbi

        I stopped at howard because by you saying that it’s obvious you have 0 idea what you’re talking about which makes your whole statement invalid as Supa said!!!!

      • Eli Pinilla

        Like I said, it doesn’t change a thing. The point is he shouldnt be out there doin that dumb ass shit in the first place. He dont deserve to die. But some boxes of swishas?!?!?!There are videos of his own homeboy saying he took the swishas…..look, he ain’t deserve to die. And the cop should be charged. But can’t be doin dumb shit like that. This shit is gonna keep happening cuz police and their authority is gonna react that way almost every time if they feel they can justify it. It being a race issue instead of an establishment issue is what they want. And they know this outrage will go away. Just like trayvon. Cuz people focused on the wrong thing.

      • Troll_E_G

        Where’s the video saying he took the blunts….sounds like u a paid troll to create the smear campaign….no excuses for the execution and that’s all that matters. .anytime people can’t protest in peace but the kkk can assemble to spread hate with police protection is a problem…anytime a thief is shot down over an serial killer is clearly a effin problem

      • Eli Pinilla

        Discus won’t let me post the link…youtube “Eyewitness speaks on The murder of Mike brown”.

        A troll?!?! Lol your funny. I been commenting on here forever, I speak my mind…here’s the link :https///tfy5FiqzWHI (write youtube in between the hashes. Only way allhiphop let’s me post the link)

        Just for you. I’m not trying to justify anything or make anyone look bad. I’m just callin it how I see it. Keep on making it a race issue and see how far that takes you…it’s the establishment. But you keep with this white vs black shit and the bigger issue is ignored. Keep on with the race shit and you see if it stops authority from abusing it’s power.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        ok , but the the issue never been “he didn’t do anything” – the issue is was it proper police procedure, or was shooting him un-justified ? – and different witnesses all said it happened the same way, and shooting was unproper procedures – that’s why the slogan is “hands up, don’t shoot” because That’s the issue, its not justified for cop to shoot anyone that’s being still and hands up

      • Eli Pinilla

        I’m not justifying what the cop did. I think he’s wrong and should be arrested and charged. The problem with him stealing some swishas is the mentality. Ain’t shit gonna change if we give the police excuses to over use their power. And then, instead of go after them and the establishment, it becomes a race thing….One thing lead to the other. Even though the other wasn’t justified. We have to stop with the dumb ass mentality if shits gonna move forward. The police will always have an excuse if we give them excuses. And him stealing shit ain’t a good look. Trayvon was a bigger issue in my eyes cuz he was innocent of any wrong doing. And was killed for how he looked. This is a police man using fatal force to grab a big ass dude who just strong armed some blunts.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        Dude, – let’s simplify this really down – We can’t have cops shooting people down when they’re not resisting anymore and hands raised

      • Eli Pinilla

        Agreed

      • Immortal

        Out of all this back and forth, I think this was the underlying theme. Good call on brining it to a head.

      • Celz

        The cop had no knowledge of the theft anyway. So they point is moot. The cop would have ran up on you the same way.

      • Q.

        ^^^^ SUMS IT UP.

      • Savimbi

        Pretty much!!!!

      • soyhiphop

        Lol really? Youtube it dude snatched the swishers and when the helpless clerk tries to stop him he violently shoves her than intimidates her like hes ginna punch her..this kid was no good

      • Savimbi

        Who said he stole a box of swisher? where is the 911 tape from the store ? they should at least have that to corroborate the story bruh!!!!!

      • Eli Pinilla

        The video I posted below has the dude that was with him say he took the blunts. He also says he couldn’t have ran from the police cuz he had flip flops on….then there the video stills showing what appears to be mike brown himming up some old dude in a grocery store with flip flops on. And the same sox he had on at the scene of the crime. Also, the video of the homeboy came out a few days before we even knew mike brown was involved in that situation…. I agree with all of yall man. I’m not defending the cop. I’m sayin we need to do better. And it’s not all race either. It’s a authority against oppressed imo

      • Eric Stewart

        Who gives a shit if he did steal a box of blunts. Since when is the punishment for petty theft death. U sound real dumb now. There is no justification for the shooting.

      • Eli Pinilla

        Are you reading?!?! Where have I justified it?!?! Show me one sentence. Outside of that, read objectively and it’ll make sense.

      • Eric Stewart

        Ok but your reasoning is similar to saying that a woman with skimpy clothing on deserves to be raped or Just because a female lets you grind on her in the club means sex is a given. There is a thing called over reaction and it seems as if when it comes to us the police always over react. Crimes will always happen but us saying that part of the problem is our mentality is equal to giving the police a pass. Its not our mentality that is causing these situations to end in terrible fashion. Its theirs and their feelings of superiority that equal our deaths. Sound like u are trying to push some reverse psychology

      • Eli Pinilla

        Look, you can keep on pushing the race thing if you want too, but it gonna get you nowhere. I’m 27. Got locked up at 18. Being young and dumb just like this kid. Same crime and sll. Strong srm robbery.I know abuse of power. And I’ve seen shit with my own eyes that let’s me know that this bigger than race. I’ve been the lowest common denominator in this b*tch, and trust me, it’s not about race. Even if racism does exist within it….yall are selectively angry. Where is this outrage for chicago? Yall going so hard on this one issue, but look over the bigger issues going on. This same mentality Is killing kids a few states away. But we focused on a white man treating a black man wrong. He’s guilty. He needs to go to prison. But this race shit will get us nowhere. Look at trayvon for proof. Shit went back to the same. People complaining and the gov still gets away with shit, and black and Latino kids are killing each other in chicago and numerous other cities.

      • PUTEMnKASKETS .

        But he wasn’t. The store clerk said that is was not Brow that did it.

      • Eli Pinilla

        It was a different store owner who said that cuz they were asking the wrong people. They asked the clerk cuz they heard he was involved in some kind of robery. We didn’t know untill today that he was actually involved in one. The video shows him and his friend told a similar story….it’s not justified what they did to him. But that was him in those videos and his homeboy explained the situation himself. Even saying he had flip flops on which mike brown is wearing in the video. And the same socks he had on when he was killed.

      • Dude they were walking down the street minding their business, he had no reason to even stop and look their way, I was a preteen and had this same thing happen to me on several occasions and guess where? Ferguson and St. Louis county. I swear I’m telln the truth, unprovoked or not they try to treat you so bad for nothing out there and some people won’t take that sht. Especially if you’ve done nothing wrong why not talk back to a racist pig.

      • Eli Pinilla

        I’m with you man. I agree. And believe what you say cuz I’ve had it happen to me on numerous occasions. But I think it’s a mental thing that has gotten us here. I think police have the same mentality of “f*ck the criminals” in the same way criminals and minorities have “f*ck the police”. It’s a cycle that we will always be on the receiving end cuz they are the authority. Once me make it an establishment issue, even if there is racism involved, then when can get some kind of justice.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        and cop was white too

      • Tell him again bruh….Ferguson only has 3 black cops on the payroll. ….I grew up I’m the Lou and I have first hand accounts of them cops being too aggressive out there…Also I’ve never ever seen a black cop out there ever.

      • SupaDoopaGhost1

        Or out of all the pic, videos, and news broadcasts, i have yet to see ONE black cop in the ranks of unnumbered white ones. And I’ve been keep up with this since day one.

    • I hate to tell u bruh but u don’t know sht so just simmer down…they only have 3 cops on the whole force…my peoples stayed out there and I’ve been harassed by those same cops on more than 10 occasions and I’ve never seen a black cop on their force ever! Those guys are over the top out there trust and believe, don’t believe everything the media tells u my dude….The cop killed an unarmed kid and fled the scene….no where else in the world have they waited this long to identify the officer…that should make a light go off in your brain in itself…. get real..The people there are not only outraged by the shooting, that sht stems from years and years of being fkd with by that racist police force…I personally been pulled over ten times by them but guess what? I’ve only had one speeding ticket my entire life…I also was locked up for the 1st time ever in Ferguson. It is very real out there and them stats they giving you about the disproportionate arrests of black residents is very truthful..what a lot of outsiders don’t know is Ferguson is nowhere near a high crime area so why does the stats reflect us getting pulled over and arrested more? I wish u could answer that question but nobody can because it’s an impossibility holmes.

      • Eli Pinilla

        Who said I said the cop was black?!?! I said I hope he’s not. But keep on making it a race thing instead of an authority thing and see where that takes you. See how much it changes things a year from now. Gonna lose it like trayvon if we keep focusing on the wrong things

    • PUTEMnKASKETS .

      CNN reported that Mike Browns potna will not have charges put against him.

      • Eli Pinilla

        As they shouldnt. They would look extra petty if they did. Now that the focus in on the authority more than just some white cop shit, But the establishment itself, see how they clear things up and try to look good. …keep in mind, he also a witness of the murder too. So they treading lightly.

    • Eric Stewart

      It is race related and whites are the establishment. The blacks on the force are mostly just puppets. If they arent puppets then why do we never see any outrage from black cops when a black person is beaten or shot for no reason. Think of all the unjust situations that we have seen between black citizens and white cops. Black police have never stood up for their people. Which leads me to the conclusion that once they put that badge on being black and standing up for their people is last. Remember on plantations there was just usually one overseer, slaves were mostly kept in check by other slaves.

      • Eli Pinilla

        It all goes back to a mentality. And it started with white’s, but based on what you are saying, blacks can also file behind that same line of thinking. Same with Spanish cops or any other. Race is an issue, but not the main imo. Even like you said with the slaves. It’s a mentality that they enforced that was adopted. No different then Jim crow laws. And it’s become the mentality of the minority/criminal vs authority/establishment. It’s a cycle. But one that we feed into as much as they do. Like I said earlier. Trayvon committed no crime and was suspect on none, we used the race card, the killer got off, and nothing has changed. This dude is actually involved in something. We gotta look at the bigger issue look how they treated the crowds with the smoke gas. They ain’t just hit black protesters with that, white people got hit too. And white journalist were getting arrested and their shit took.

      • Q.

        Yes, it is a RACE issue. And yes, it is a CLASS issue. The kicker is that race and class are inextricable. If you say class then you’re saying race as well, because so-called minorities are pre-categorized as the main contingent of the UNDERCLASS. As you pointed out, criminal or no criminal, the Black/Brown male (eg. Trayvon Martin) is always a main target of a white supremacist system and those sympathetic to it (eg. George Zimmerman). You could be a Harvard professor (eg. Skip Gates) or a petty thug (eg. Michael Brown?)–either way the PD’s made up of majority WHITE officers who swear to serve and protect that SYSTEM are going to hem your ass up just for breathing.

        Also, if it isn’t a racial issue, then why is the media slanting the protestors as unruly Black rioters, when there were obviously sympathetic whites out there protesting as well? They didn’t focus on any white folks doing anything unruly. See, the media slant is a facet of racism too, and thus, reinforces that is indeed a racial issue.

        Whether Brown stole the blunts or not is independent of his killing, as Off. Darren Wilson had no foreknowledge of the robbery. The Ferguson PD going into high spin mode against Brown instead of truthfully dealing with the fact that their officer fucked up by using unlawful deadly force makes this a RACIAL ISSUE.

      • Eli Pinilla

        It’s a race issue cuz we make it one…it’s an authority issue. It’s not a race issue when blacks are killing blacks in chicago. Which happens every day. No protests, no nothing. Is race an issue? for sure. But it’s not the major issue. Abuse of authority by establishment is.

      • Q.

        Sorry, but you’re wrong. The authority you’re talking about represents a racist system, so IT IS racial. You can’t escape race being a pervading factor in a society based on racial subjugation and de-nationalization. You just can’t. And an officer wouldn’t feel free to abuse said authority unless he had the backing of a [classist/white supremacist] system to cover his ass, which is EXACTLY what is happening right now.
        And you’re wrong about Chicago too. There are protests here ALL THE TIME about the violence going on–they may not show the coverage in your city, but people are constantly speaking out and the majority of the Black community here is fully against the violence happening.

      • Eli Pinilla

        Race can be a factor but it’s not THEE factor. It’s just not……. And chicago is a perfect example of what I speak of. Of course there are protests, It’s not that nobody cares, It’s that the outrage, which should be more, is not equal to or even close to what this is…why? Cuz people choose what to be more mad about, in this case it’s race. The majority will put more emphasis and feel more emotionally attached to this one kid cuz he dies of “race issues” than 500-600 kids die cuz of same race violence. Yall putting more emphasis on why he died then him actually dien. And then you make it about race when it’s bigger than that….let’s say it’s the government, and they are doing this on purpose, don’t you think they would rather the whole nation trip about one death in some no name town then have you worried about hundreds of black kids killing eachother every day in one of the biggest cities in the country?!?!?! It’s deep still cuz the Mexican cartels run the drug trade specifically in chicago. It’s directly connected. They sittin there like ” yea, be mad at ferguson. Tweet that shit, cuz all the real shit is happening over here anyways. And it’s happening right in front of yall face”….look, I’ve read yall comments. I agree with yall on some things. And we disagree on others. I’m not saying racism isn’t real and that it doesn’t play a factor. And I’m not saying the kid deserved to die. I’m sayin that it’s bigger than that.

      • Q.

        Of course a white officer shooting a unarmed black person in cold blood is provocative, giving we live in a racialized society. That’s not hard to understand. The Black community of Ferguson, MO didn’t make it a racial issue, the white officer who felt comfortable shooting an unarmed suspect to death in broad daylight made it a race issue. Why? Because he wouldn’t have dreamed of doing that to a white person. And as I said, the outrage in Chicago exists. Maybe you don’t feel it because what?–they don’t show Black Chicagoans marching and calling out Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the Chief of the CPD on the local news in your city. And again, race and class are INEXTRICABLE; I said that off the rip, so no need to beat a dead horse. I understand how this game works. Cartels channel drugs across the border into urban communities (which mainly serve white suburbanites, BTW). But who allowed the fukcing drugs to come in here in the first place?? Exactly.

        Michael Brown’s death wasn’t a conspiracy to incite a race war, if that’s what you’re insinuating. This was just an everyday symptom of a callous system socially engineered to disregard the lives of the poor and minorities, wholesale. Only this time, there were plenty of witnesses to a broad daylight police murder, and the locals are justified in their response. That sounds like some illogical right-wing rhetoric: “You shouldn’t be mad about racist whites killing Black people, because Black people kill Black people in Chicago.” That’s not an excuse or justification for what happened in Ferguson.

      • Eli Pinilla

        That’s the point. It’s not being shown cuz people don’t care as much as they do about this. It’s a story Cuz of the reason the kid died, not that he actually died. Where’s the rest of the people for chicago outside of just the people in chicago?!?!? Where’s all this outrage from everybody else that exist only for this case and not for any one in chicago? Where are the think pieces?! Where’s “black twitter’s” outrage for chicago everyday like it is for this?!?! It’s not just media either. People are choosing to make this a bigger issue forcing the media and other local networks to speak on it. If people tripped like this about Chicago, trust that the news in every city would play it. I’m in Miami btw, and I’m on the internet all the time, and the outrage for chicago nationwide has never been close to what this is. Not even in the same bracket. Trayvon Martin and mike brown will be remembered and memorialized more in history because of the outrage then any hundreds of kids from any of the years chicago has been like this……race and class are not INEXTRICABLE, it doesn’t matter when you said it, that’s inaccurate. There is classicism in every nation/state. There is classicism in Africa, there is classicism in china. In India (slumdog is literally a term used to describe the poor in India, by other Indains) Classicism is a state of mind based off wealth and stature, not race. Blacks can be classicist toward other blacks. White people are classicist towards other whites. This is fact. Can race play a role?!?! Yes, is it thee role? No.

        I agree with what you said in the first 2 sentences of the last paragraph. Except for you can’t follow that logic and make it about a racist cop in the same paragraph. You don’t know that it was race related. You are assuming as much. So your choosing to be outraged by this without really knowing, just assuming. That’s the problem from our end. We typecast just like they do. We look at him like ” he’s a racist white cop”. And they lookin at us like “that’s some thug black kid”. It’s a mental cycle…….This isn’t no right wing shit. What you described isn’t even a right wing thought. What it is is the truth. You/we everybody is putting more thought and emotion behind this one death for why it happened then 500-600 deaths happening period. Nobodies saying don’t be upset, don’t be mad, but that’s like getting Pissed off when someone steps on your shoes, but letting it slide when your own people steal them. You choose to look at things differently cuz since it’s us killing us, we create excuses and understandings for why we do it to each other. But when it comes from some other source, we can’t accept that cuz it’s not from us and we don’t have to understand or create excuse. Tribalism at its most basic levels. Any white man that kills a black man will be considered racist until proven otherwise. Everybody has a right to be mad, be upset. But it does matter why they are mad and upset. It’s the system. And it’s not race drivin like it used to be. They won that. They stopped oppressing African Americans cuz they started doing it to themselves mentally. Prison systems are plantations for all races, not just blacks. Not anymore.

      • Q.

        Wow. Okay.

        If you don’t understand how race and class are intertwined in this country, then I don’t know what to tell you. If you can’t see how the two are interdependent here in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, then you might want to read a little history. Look up “White Supremacy” and really find out what that means. I don’t think you understand what a white supremacist system is…Hint: you don’t have to be an overt racist to support a white supremacist system. You don’t even have to be white! …And BTW, “Classicism” was a period of art–you probably mean “classism.”

        And yes, “classism” is a global phenomenon, but funnily enough, just about every country on Earth has its own form of White Supremacy infused in its respective society, and has its own version of a racial (i.e. COLOR-BASED) caste system, whether spoken or unspoken. Don’t believe me? Travel around the world. Today, in 2014, Africa, Asia, Europe, Australia, North and South America ALL have forms of COLOR-BASED DISCRIMINATION. You mentioned India. India has one of the worst color caste systems in the world! Look up “the Untouchables” and find out about how white Indians have historically treated dark-skinned Indians. Ask yourself, “Where did that come from?”
        Oh, maybe it’s all coincidental? LOL

        You’re in Miami. I don’t know how you can speak for Chicago, and say what the people here do and don’t care about. Like I told you, the people HERE have been very outraged by the violence going on. Have you heard of Blair Holt, Derrion Albert, and Hadiya Pendleton??? Google those names. And violence is an issue in every major city in the U.S. Chicago’s just in the spotlight right now because we have the current murder title. But that title has rotated from city to city for years. So-called Black-on-Black violence is a problem because poverty is a problem, mainly. Wait…Poverty + Race = Class + Race. My bad. …But what about white-on white violence, mass shootings, and such. Where’s the national outrage about young white male serial killers shooting up malls, schools, and killing cops? IJS

        But that’s beside the point. You keep harping on Chicago. What does Chicago have to do with Off. Darren Jones murdering Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO? Nothing, other than the common denominator of police abuse in Black neighborhoods throughout the U.S.. BOTTOM LINE: Darren Jones needs to be brought to trial and put in prison. You can spin that however you want.

        Eli, what’s your race and ethnicity BTW?

      • Eli Pinilla

        We can go back and forth all day on this, so I’ll just agree to disagree……I’m 100% Colombian. Cienega, Colombia to be exact (Google it so you can get an idea of how it still looks like to this day) Born in Queens raised down here. My direct family ancestors were massacred is the 30 ‘s by the government for striking the United Fruit Company. Which led to “la violancia”(The era of violence) which was a civil war in Colombia that lasted 60 years and some would say is still going on….I come from the same oppression African Americans come from here. Just poorer and less results…I dont disagree with what you sayin, i just think its bigger than that…..I have no angle. My best friends are hatian. My girl is black. Shit, her people say the same things I’m sayin and they come from the shit. She can trace her lineage down to the number. Before they had names. Str8 out of Virginia. And even they saying the same thing I’m sayin. That it’s bigger than race. They feel that it’s not about blacks anymore. It’s about poor vs rich. The haves vs have nots.

      • Q.

        I can dig it. Colombian is your nationality, though. I’m assuming you’re of a fairer complexion. It’s all good though. I totally get that it’s a class war going on, I’m just saying racism automatically falls under that umbrella. Mos def it’s about the the haves vs the have-nots. Unfortunately, most of the haves are not brown-skinned. And in this society, a poor white man may still get better treatment than a middle-class Black man. So, it’s not that cut and dry about money/class. Skip Gates is a Black Harvard professor, and the police treated him like a thug in his own house. I’m sure he makes 6 figures.

        As far as Ferguson, I can’t see how anyone can say race wasn’t a factor in the murder… I’m not even saying that Jones shot Brown because he necessarily hates Black people. I’m just saying that he felt comfortable that the racist SYSTEM had his back to go ahead and shoot the kid even though his hands were up. I think Jones would’ve thought 2 or 3 times about gunning dude down had he been a white male… It’s more like you do what you think you can get away with type of thing. It’s the same reckless mentality that the officer who killed Oscar Grant had.

      • Eli Pinilla

        I feel u man. I agree with what u sayin. And whites definitely have a privilege we dont. I think whites naturally associate themselves with authority while minorities more so with the oppressed. I Def see how race could play a role. And I’m sure subconsciously it did. But I hope people can see that it’s bigger and if we focus on only the race aspect, we will miss the bigger picture. Its all mentality…. Respect your opinion homie. The main thing we agree on is that the cop is wrong and he should be in jail and convicted for the crime. All that tear gas shit, and the militarization of the police force is our biggest threat imo.

    • Celz

      First off it’s innocent until proven guilty. It’s not even conclusive that it’s the same person in the video. Was the victim found with 50 swishers on him? Why does he have shoes on, not sandals? Where is his hat at? If his boy is an accessory to strong arm robbery why is he not being charged? Since when does your homie getting shot absolve you of guilt?

      Alot of what you are saying is real spill but don’t eat up what these pigs feed you. They operate like a criminal organization they will break any and every law to make sure they get paid and stay out of jail.

      • Eli Pinilla

        That’s him in the video stills. He has flip flops on when he’s pushing the old man, and he’s wearing those same socks at the scene of the murder. I beleive he ran away in his flip flops and got shot in the back. The hat would obviously fly off in that situation. Also, in homeboys video, he said it himself that mike brown took the blunts. But said it was a different store. And also said how could mike run away from the cops when he had the flip flops on. That video came out a few days ago. And I doubt ol boy would say that mike was pushing the old man around. We just got those video pictures today which goes with homeboys earlier story….I’m not going by what the media says. I don’t watch TV for that matter. I’m just putting 2 and 2 together. And again, the cop is guilty. I think they didn’t charge the homeboy cuz he’s also a witness in the murder. They trying to clean house now. I’m with everybody here. The dude is guilty. But if we focus on the wrong shit, and justify dumb ass mentality In the first place, then it’s gonna keep on happening. We keep on feeding these kids to the system. And then when we should attack the system, we let them make us think it’s some race shit. Ain’t no white people killing the black kids in chicago. But you’ll never see this kinda reaction to that cuz we are fuelled by petier issues.

    So what was the article yesterday all about with Anonymous hacking the system and saying it was a different cop with confederate flags on his FB page?

    • 5% Hov

      The Real Anon didn’t care much for this case.
      No surprise there

    • Immortal

      The real Anonymous wouldn’t have said anything. They don’t reveal their hand, others do it for them. And dude with the flag was supposed to be the police chief.

  • Saiyan Prince

    In the theatre shooting, where the guy killed and wounded all those people….didn’t the police take that man alive? Dude had all types of fire power. So how can you not be able to subdue an unarmed man who allegedly (cuz those photos look a lil suspect) pulled a strong armed robbery? And I don’t care if the cop that shot him was white or black, little bruh wasn’t packing.

    • keenan88

      What a horrible comparison with the theater shooting. You act like you were there at both events and its laughable.

      • Saiyan Prince

        I was waiting for you. I was at neither event. But I also know the difference between someone that had already killed multiple people, and someone that is unarmed and surrendered. So, my laughing friend, here are the facts so far. Dude robs store. Unarmed. Dude gets stopped in street. Not for the robbery, but for obstruction of traffic flow, or so I’ve read on CNN. Again, unarmed. Now here’s where things get sketchy. He supposedly fought off or did not fight with the officer. Still unarmed tho. He runs from warning shot, gets popped. According to witnesses, turns around with hands up to surrender. Again unarmed. Then he is gunned down in cold blood. UNARMED. I wasn’t comparing a damn thing homie. It’s just strange to me that one hand, a guy that was CLEARLY a threat gets arrested alive, but the one that is supposedly a threat gets killed.

      • atlantahiphopshop

        The only thing thats laughable is the fact that we had to use a mass murderer to compare to an unarmed black teen to make a point. I can’t wait to see Americas reaction when a black cop shoots a white skater kid in the face.

      • keenan88

        But by doing that it becomes a pathetic comparison and stops people form taking it seriously.

      • Saiyan Prince

        Me either. I bet that black cop goes straight to jail without passing ‘GO’ and collecting $200.

  • HatingWhitePeopleSince85

    That boy DID NOT try to reach for this mans gun!! No witnesses have corroborated that story AT ALL!! However even IF HE reached for his gun, stole something from the store or whatever it still doesnt justify CHASING HIM DOWN AND SHOOTING HIM!!! AFTER HE HAD HIS HANDS UP!!! Doesn’t matter!!! Period! so the can try to hold on to that lie all they want doesn’t matter!

    • W.E.B. Du Bois

      True

    • Celz

      Chief Keef pointed a gun at a cop and is somehow alive to tell the story.. The cop is going to jail.. Just watch

      • JohnDoe19

        In Chicago, they always use that lie, ”He pointed a gun at the police”, to justify killing someone.

    • Immortal

      The man that was with Mr. Brown was intervired and said he wasn’t in the car, and the officer was reaching through the window of the cruiser to get Mr. Brown. I was a MP and if I’m in the car and you’re NOT, how in the hell are you going to get hold of my weapon? And for me to shoot you once, let you go, then shoot again until you fall, then stand over you and unload? Sounds like premeditated murder to me (I’m no lawyer though). The cop knew he was shooting Mr. Brown, and to stand over him and continue it means he fit Mens Rea to a tee. After the LAPD managed to get their own off, the NYPD the same, I’m not expecting this cop to get anything other than fired if that. Folks are scared to convict a cop, and even worse convict said cop over a black man. I hope justice is served by a court of Mr. Browns peers, and that justice is served cold, with NO protective custody in prison for this cop. All cops aren’t bad any more than a whole of a particular race or religion, but this ONE and those like him make those that try to do the right thing, just as bad as him.

      • Andy

        I don’t trust a word the Ferguson police have to say. It took them 4 days to say that officer Wilson was injured and 6 days to come out with this “Brown was a robbery suspect” garbage. If that was true you know they would have made it clear from day one. Their story doesn’t match up with the witnesses at all, it’s obvious they are just trying to make up a believable story and cover this up.

      • Immortal

        True. On ALL of the sites in the world to look at, Fox news has an article on the US becoming a “police state”. Now the article was written as poorly as one on here, but what it got right were the comments. And one that rang true was the fact there are dash cams whenever the overheads are turned on. There is also audio to record what is said and done just incase the cam can’t get what’s going on. WHERE IS THE VIDEO AND WHERE IS THE RECORDING? This isn’t directed at you, but is a question anyone can answer: What injury did officer Wilson have? If he was in the vehicle and holding onto a “suspect”, how was he injured? The Hippa act will prevent a Freedom of Information Act from getting this info directly, but a criminals condition is damn near always released rather quickly. The news sites usually have someone on the inside that speaks on the “condition of anomously” (I know I spelled it wrong), but there is a snitch for a dollar in every hospital. No one came forward to mention this cops injuries? I was talking with family about this and they believe the PD will let this cop hang. But what does that really do? You put Mr. Browns killer in some kind of prison, BUT the underlying cause is still the same. The people responsible for allowing it to happen are still there, so the mentality will continue to persist. So this “pawn” gets sent away to make folks feel good…until the next time. Get the entire PD leadership out and place new folks in. Change the mindset that “It’s us against them”. And to the folks in the neighborhood stop the “street code”. If you won’t handle it yourselves, you realty can’t get too mad when some dumbass ignorant cop comes in and does your dirt for you. Mr. Brown did not have to die. But I just hope that there is a mindset change for everyone involved and this cop isn’t “sacrificed” by his superiors just so they can escape being held to the fire. Get rid of ALL of em and prosecute as many as possible.

  • jacksjus

    If it takes this long to answer a few simple questions, then likely the police have something to hide. The key witnesses explanation of the situation didn’t say anything about he cop possibly mistaking them as criminals. He explained it as if the cop told them to do something, and became upset when they didn’t move quickly enough for his liking.

    Two polar opposites. If the kids were mistaken as criminals wouldn’t the witness had stated that. Hey the officer tried to accuse us of stealing.

  • Mike Brown rest in peace but my city is showing the entire nation that we can put pressure on these racist pigs taking our civil liberties for a joke. I hope the rest of the nation rides in their respective cities the next time some bullsht like this happens. STL got your back and going hard for you lil bro. Enough is E damn nuff

    It came out on Fox (sigh) that there was NO connection to the robbery and why he was stopped. Mr. Brown was only an unknown suspect. With that, it would make it seem all that more of a hate crime and under the purview of the FBI and the Justice Dept.

    • NEGATIVE!

      There is a connection to the robbery, as the cop was responding to one when he encountered Brown.

      The robbery call put the cop in one mode, and when Brown saw the cops, it put him in another, especially if he was involved in some fugg ‘chet earlier.

      • Immortal

        Naw bruh, that cop was on “routine” patrol, and came up on him. But I’m going to wait till the autopsy comes out. They can’t release the man to his family without it being done, and that will settle this BS about him not being shot in the back. No audio/video from the dash cam? SUSPECT! But I’m going to wait. See what happens in the end.

      • Who says no dash cam? Not releasing it is standard procedure, either way.

        Bottom line is, just like the Bloods, Crips, Latin Kings, ( Honorable mention to Chi Town gangs & any others ) when they roll up with that gat, you have two choices, comply or go all out & face the bullets.

  • W.E.B. Du Bois

    gotta be another riot if cop don’t get sentenced to murder , he still walked to and murdered this asshole, who was not resisting anymore, down on his knees , showing hands in air, in a Total give-up position

  • soyhiphop

    Heres my take on it. The kid was acting like a bully and thug that makes me re think this whole incident. His partner lied I mean just minutes before the shooting you see mike brown on video snatching some swishers from the counter then intimidating the poor frail store clerk.what makes you think he didn’t reach for the cops gun? I mean video clearly shows he was no good he loses all credibility and tainted his character.this is no way shape or form is like the travon case where trayvon was minding his business and was aproached by zimmerman..also I saw pictures of this kid throwing blood signs and holding a glock how come ya ain’t mad over the little girl shot dead weeks ago in the southside of chicago? Wheres the uproar? The marches and rallies? This kid was a goon..this cop had 6 years on the job and didn’t had one complaint against him.lets look at this from a factual stand point

    • Immortal

      I can dig what you’re saying but ok facts:
      It did appear to be him in the store strong arming the ol man over some BS.
      The cop that “responded” had no idea that there was even something wrong
      Once a cop turns on the overheads, there is the dash cam. Where is the video/audio from this? How come it wasn’t released?
      The cop is tusling with Mr. Brown yet shot him in the back…twice.
      Then gets out of the car, stands over dude and unloads in him?
      Mr. Brown was unarmed and there is no disputing that, so to pump at least 10 rounds in him was justified? Where was the cops Taser?
      And to leave the body uncovered for over four hours for everyone to see? I understand processing the crime scene, but a simple tarp couldn’t be used out of respect?
      I posted on here how a three year old was killed in Landover MD when this happened by a 25yr old black man who was upset and just sprayed the house. When I did that I was told this was an “entertainment site” and I would be better suited opening my own wordpress site. To make it worse when I went to respond to this cat, it went straight to moderation. No cursing, no nothing.
      If this is anything other than what has been reported by numerous sites to be what is was, I’ll be the FIRST one to admit I was wrong; even on here. I can only hope I’m not the only one.

      • rudolph

        I believed the cop snapped…the kid obviously wasn’t in his right mind, bad overall situation. Ferguson PD trying to protect their own and some idiots taking advantage of a terrible situation to commit crimes. I refuse to watch this on tv. The media always need to exploit these tragedies to get some press. The cop will only lose his badge. I feel for the families involved.

    • W.E.B. Du Bois

      your take is wrong – you want fact? – the thug was on his knees with his hands raised , the cop walked up to him and shot him several times

  • i’mreloaded!

    I’m just gonna wait until all da facts come out but there is still no reason to empty your whole gun on a teenage kid when you got handcuffs, taser, and even a baton. Everything will come out shortly, then we’ll see who’s covering up what.
