Skip to comments.MISSOURI GOVERNOR [Democrat]: POLICE 'ATTEMPTING TO BESMIRCH' MIKE BROWN
Posted on 08/17/2014 11:48:40 AM PDT by Jim Robinson
Sunday on CBS's "Face The Nation," Gov. Jay Nixon (D-MO) said the local police "attempting to besmirch a victim of a shooting" by releasing a video of Michael Brown allegedly engaging in a "strong-arm" convenience store robbery.
"I think it had an incendiary effect," Nixon said. "I mean, when you release picture and you clearly are attempting to besmirch a victim of a shooting, shot down in his own street, a young man and at the same time youre releasing information to try to make it, to tarnish him, then properly, there was a lot of folks that were concerned about that, and I do think it flamed it back up and has caused us to have to deal with some of that."

Bet the idiot wouldn’t have said that had it been HIS store that got robbed
Police are being Trained to Ignore Black Crime
Next time the Governor needs police help, maybe they will be on a long break.
I am still looking, but I can’t find the sarcasm tag...The guv cannot be serious...
Unbelievable.The governor is in on the scam.
I see he’s not looking for the PBA’s votes in the next election.
Governor Nixon is one corrupt man (little m)
Yes I see a big case of “Blue Flu” hitting St. Louis police.
According to the “strong arm” robbery video and the “witness” video posted here today, I’d say that Brownie the “gentle giant” liked to use his immense size to intimidate other people. That’s why that little weasel Johnson used the boy to do his cigar” “shopping” for him at the convenience store. “Besmirch” my butt. This ‘RAT guvnah” is a clueless idiot.
Yeah, but only for the past 50 years.
This is from the Onion or Scrappleface right? Right?...
It’s increasingly difficult to believe how stupid and evil democrats are.
Where I come from, you besmirch yourself when you smoke pot, walk around in shower shoes with your pants falling down, and throttle store clerks during the commission of convenience store robberies.
What an inept man.
Governor says “to besmirch a victim””
And what do you call what he is doing. Influencing a jury pool, maybe. I thought we all should know the facts no matter where it leads. He seems beholding to the left wing of his party Obama/Holder.
They weren’t actually cigars.
They were wraps.
I’m sure Gov Hypocrite has no problem with them besmirching the officer involved before the investigation is over.
The truth is the truth—some people just can’t handle it.
I suppose he thinks Trayvon was profiled, stalked and gunned down just because he was black.
Something a cigar is not just a cigar.
how pathetic that this libtard G is throwing the police under the bus!!!
Sometimes cigar is not just a cigar.
Sounds like the governor is looking to replace Holder should he decide to step aside.
Democrats run on grievances. They stoke the fires and then warm themselves at the expense of those burning. You’d think that high ranking officials would learn not to comment as that taints the jury pool and makes a legitimate prosecution impossible. But, they always comment to their political advantage. (As I recall, the military had to drop rape charges against a soldier because the president damaged their case with a damning public comment that could be construed as an instruction to the military judges.)
This governor can’t keep their big yap shut.
Wonder what his recent FR handle is.
Hey Gub, never mind your party’s policies the last 150 years since the plantations were freed.
What an arsewipe.
I thought Nixon portrayed himself as a supposed “Blue Dog” Democrat which is how he gets elected in Missouri, I guess it was all BS.
Besmirch? He had just committed a robbery minutes prior to his confrontation with the policeman. It puts into context his disproportionate, aggressive reaction to being stopped by him while walking in the middle of the street.
The information is relevant. And it should have had a calming effect on normal people. The Dems are angry because it hurt their narrative about a "Gentle Giant" who was gunned down by a racist cop.
I'm actually glad this fool (Gov Nixon) tried it his way. It didn't work. And because the local police did what's right, it isn't Saint Michael Brown the thugs and race baiters are fighting over.....it's a bully who assaulted someone half his size.
Why am I glad? Because it's now very obvious that those rioting only want violence and chaos. And that needs to be stopped by whatever it takes. Enablers such as Nixon make me ill....from their situations of privilege and lack of real-world experience, they think they know what's best for everyone else.
I wonder how he'd feel if the rioters showed up at the Governor's mansion.
Okay, so now I get it. African American thug - good, law abiding, taxpaying convenience store operator - bad.
Following the party line established by the libtard president and libtard attorney general.
So it’s fine to be a thief and thug in MO. What a disgrace. No business should locate in any ghetto area in that state.
More convinced each and every minute that the feds intended to put this recording with the Learner emails and the local cops new it. In order to protect their own they released it. Had it been a normal white citizen it would never have seen the light of day.
It’s not like this was dredged up from his past, of even a week before-it was a crime he committed some minutes before the confrontation with the police officer. That has bearing on his actions.
“I think it had an incendiary effect,”
when you release picture
and you clearly are attempting to besmirch a victim of a shooting,
shot down in his own street,
a young man
and at the same time youre releasing information to try to make it,
to tarnish him,
there was a lot of folks that were concerned about that,
and I do think it flamed it back up
and has caused us to have to deal with some of that.”
Worst Gobbledy Gook, Run On, grammar deficient Sentence made by an official in at least the past month. Sounds like Benjamin Crump wrote it.
The only other examples that come close are responses by the President’s Press Secretary to the media when asked an embarrassing question, and when the President makes a speech.
Exactly. No matter what the cop knew or didn’t know, the thug knew he’d committed strong-arm robbery right before their paths crossed.
Conclusion: Governor Jay Nixon is an Obamabot in an empty suit!!! This governor is better suited to be a garbage collector, with no offense to decent sanitation workers!!! Michael Brown...the Obama, Sharpton, Jackson, CBC, NAACP Democrat Party, “GENTLE GIANT” is not a gentle giant at all!!! He is the absolute, standard, low life, Obamabot, thug and criminal!!!
The truth always hurts....but....the truth is still the truth!!! Democrats....wise up...broom Obama and Holder quickly...for many quite obvious reasons!!!
The DNC has orchestrated this from the get-go.
What a very foolish thing for this man to say.
Quoting Bill Clinton again?
Of course..always look for the squirrel, its what the Dems do best, deflect attention..this is all orchestrated and staged
It’s OK. Sometimes it’s due to the subconscious and the fingers disagreeing, sometimes it’s that stupid ‘autocorrect’ feature on smartphones.
I think we all have been suffering from info overload and it has affected our brains. Well, If I had any, but that’s another story.
Either way big mike assaulted the store owner. At 292 lbs, that us very intimidating.
I really wish we had an ‘edit’ feature, I would just make it so that you can only edit your posts within one minute of the original post.
And once again we see, truth is the biggest enemy of liberalism.
