Ferguson shooting: What's known now about Michael Brown
The Christian Science Monitor ^ | August 17, 2014 | David Clark Scott,

Posted on 08/17/2014 12:14:50 PM PDT by EveningStar

Michael Brown, aka "Big Mike," has been described as too "gentle" to play football. But a police report released Friday, and photos of Mike Brown flashing 'gang signs,' paint a different portrait of black teenager fatally shot Saturday, Aug. 9.

Was Michael Brown a "gentle giant," a cigar thief, or a gang member?

It very much appears he had a Hyde side.

It’s also known that he is now “wood”. Never heard that one before.

Didn’t the strong arm heist involve tiparillos? not actually cigars, or maybe they were cigarillos or such, regardless he was under age.

Also, the autopsy report should include any tatts and such found on his body.

People have gotten so simplistic in their thinking. One has to manifest as all nasty or all nice. It looked like the nasty side of Brown was strutting around that day and picked a fight it could not win.

And any word about tox tests? Being zonked clear out of his gourd could make it easier for him than otherwise to be that irrational for that prolonged a period of time.

I wonder about the private hells through which so many young people walk — hells which may in fact have been invited, but can manifest weirdly once they are.

Nothing has been released. No leaked info,, other than the video of his strong arm job.

I feel for the normal folks and business owners who will now endure years of unrest.

And utter disdain for all those interlopers who steal the scene to pimp their causes.

All the usual riff Raff showed up, at least some in the community told them to pack sand.

All sin, ultimately, is the acceptance of the devil’s fundamentally twisted notions. A mystical view of existence is the only one which, in the end, makes sense. There are agendas that began long before we were physically born, and will continue after we die.

Based on a week of monitoring, the consensus is that they were SWISHER SWEET WRAPS (called wraps because they are individually wrapped, preserving the 'freshness' so they can be used to roll up a blunt). The Tiparillos and Cigarillos are referred to in black culture slang as 'rellos', or 'blunts'.

There is little or no effort being made to arrive at an overarching truth, which is the biggest shame of all that I can see here. We are living in an age full of sin. It is not always easy to avoid it, and conscious dedication to the Lord is needed in order to see consistent victory.

The black teenager had no adult criminal record, according to the St. Louis County prosecutor.

He was 18, how long had he been an adult? Did he have a juvenile criminal record?

Yes. It’s under seal but I’ve seen his juvenile record posted here. Not 100% it was legit.

Too gentle to play football?

Or not gay enough? (Of course last night's big story in the NFL: Michael Sam got a sack.)

It's known that apparently the Brown Family doesn't trust the local autopsy:

Family Asks Justice Dept. to Oversee 2nd Autopsy

Holder Orders DOJ to Do Further Autopsy on Michael Brown

DOJ Orders Second Autopsy Of Teen Shot By Ferguson Police

This leaves open what Holder would have done if Mr. Brown was not black.

The top report could show he was amped up on meth, and this bunch would say that wasn’t relevant to the shooting.

An earlier post there was the possibility that an earlier video might link him to the beating of a hot dog vendor.

I think if is sickening that Gov. Nixon deplored the “besmirching of the victim”. First of all, he wasn’t a victim, he was a criminal who had just committed a crime, and to people of normal thinking, releasing the information/video about said crime verified that fact and should have defused the issue. Instead, we get this “gentle giant teen” crap, said gentle giant was 300 lbs, 6’ 4”, and 19, and with a “gangsta” background, and some are indicating he has a juvenile record. I hope the Ferguson police have a toxicology test going separately on his remains, as I wouldn’t trust Holder’s autopsy report.

All I can tell you is what will never be known. That’s his prior record. Juvi or not, I don’t care, but unless someone hacks it and posts it in the next two days, it will never be seen. In public or in the coming show trial.

The local autopsy will show he was shot with one bullet to the head.

The family autopsy will show one bullet to the head and five to the torso.

The Federal autopsy will show one bullet to the head, five to the torso, four to the back of the head, six to the back of the torso, and one in each buttock.

But even he is limited. Haven't heard much about his investigation into the Trayvon Martin death. Apparently there wasn't any evidence.

So maybe this situation will end up the same way.

Here is hoping that there is still Justice in the Justice Department. And if they try to do anything funny, the press will be on it.
