Facts and details are starting to leak out concerning the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri—albeit slowly. But facts don’t seem to matter anymore in our idiocracy, i.e. mobocracy. If they did, I doubt Ferguson would be in flames right now. But I digress.
Earlier this week, I was listening to a caller on the Dana Loesch radio show who allegedly had spoken with the spouse of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson—the officer who shot Michael Brown. The caller claimed Michael Brown became involved in an altercation with Officer Darren Wilson, and even tried to take his gun—which allegedly went off during the struggle. The caller also stated Brown bum-rushed the police officer.
Additionally, an audio of some alleged eyewitnesses to the lethal shooting of Michael Brown has recently come out and seems to corroborate the details provided by the caller on Dana Loesch’s radio show.
Here’s the audio from both sources (hat tip: Representative Press):
Now, an autopsy report published in the New York Times seems to corroborate the two aforementioned sources, showing Michael Brown was shot from the front, not the back, as is alleged by some who claim Officer Darren Wilson mercilessly “executed” Michael Brown simply because he was black.
The notion Michael Brown was simply an innocent 18-year-old “child” who was ruthlessly “executed” by a “trigger-happy, racist white pig” was brought into question when surveillance video appeared to show Michael Brown committing a strong-arm robbery of a convenience store, roughing up the store’s owner and brazenly walking off with approximately $50 worth of Swisher Sweets cigars in the process.
The suspect in the video shoving the store’s proprietor is wearing the exact same clothes and shoes as Michael Brown, and matches Brown’s physical description, when he was shot.
I’m sorry, for the doubters out there, if that isn’t Michael Brown, my name is Barack Obama. Michael Brown was no “child”; he was a young man who stood 6’4″ tall and weighed 292 pounds, and he apparently had an attitude to boot.
Despite these important details that are now starting to come out, the city of Ferguson, Missouri, has been plunged into utter chaos and mayhem for the past week. Last night, the situation in Ferguson escalated to a point where Missouri Governor Jay Nixon felt it necessary to call in the National Guard.
The Wall Street Journal reported:
Traffic opened again in downtown Ferguson along West Florissant Avenue, the center of an hourslong running battle between heavily armed police and hundreds of protesters Sunday evening that started at about 8:30 p.m. Police said Molotov cocktails thrown at them, as well as shootings throughout the neighborhood, forced them to respond with smoke devices and tear-gas canisters.
Before anything was really known about the circumstances surrounding the shooting of Michael Brown, a throng of “outside agitators” flocked to Ferguson to inflame an already volatile situation—namely, the main-stream media, who apparently seems hellbent on creating even more racial strife by stirring the pot and fanning the flames. This is what “social justice” looks like, and it has nothing to do with the rule of law, but it has everything to do with furthering a cynical political agenda.
Numerous groups and individuals have joined the fray in Ferguson—Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, New Black Panther Party, Amnesty International USA, Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, Monks from Tibet—even the Church of Scientology.
The Brenner Brief reported:
Many other groups have jumped right in, such as Tauheed Youth Development Life, the New Black Panther Party (NBPP), the Organization for Black Struggle (OBS), the Moorish Science Temple, the Coalition Against Police Crimes and Repression, the Nation of Islam – Mosque 28, and the Universal African Peoples Organization (UAPO).
Of course, no radical social melee would be complete without the Socialist Workers Party and the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA (a.k.a. Revcom).
It seems like every time the state-run press (i.e. ABC, NBC, MSNBC, CBS, CNN, etc.) runs a report on the mob action transpiring in Ferguson, Missouri, phrases like “unarmed teenager” and “gentle giant” are used, not to mention the fact that race always seems to be interjected into the mix—meaning, the officer is white and Michael Brown was black.
Furthermore, numerous opinionators and social activists spouting their views in the national media on the Ferguson fiasco say things like the rioters in Ferguson need to “take their city back.”
What does that mean?
Take over the city?
Should the police just shut down their department, pack their bags, and leave?
There’s never any mention of the bad behavior by the people who are throwing Molotov cocktails, and looting and burning down businesses in Ferguson, by the state-run press. We only hear about race and “social injustice.” The agitators blame the entire city of Ferguson for the chaos that they themselves have started, despite the fact Ferguson, Missouri, is over sixty-percent black. And, of course, it’s all the fault of the local Ferguson Police Department, according to the agitators and “social justice warriors.”
I will be the first one to condemn the officer if it was proven he, indeed, did “execute” Michael Brown in the street—like the attorney for the Brown family keeps repeating—simply because he was black. But the facts that are starting to come out concerning the shooting of Michael Brown do not appear to support this incendiary accusation.
Like Mark Twain once said, “A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.” Put your shoes on America! It’s time to get to the truth and stop passing off beliefs and speculation as being synonymous with facts and stone-cold truth. Once must always ask, “To whose benefit?”
Just the facts, M’am … just the facts.
