Skip to comments.Puzzling number of men tied to Ferguson protests have died
Posted on 03/17/2019 9:26:41 AM PDT by Olog-hai
Two young men were found dead inside torched cars. Three others died of apparent suicides. Another collapsed on a bus, his death ruled an overdose.
Six deaths, all involving men with connections to protests in Ferguson, Missouri, drew attention on social media and speculation in the activist community that something sinister was at play.
Police say there is no evidence the deaths have anything to do with the protests stemming from a white police officers fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown, and that only two were homicides with no known link to the protests.
But some activists say their concerns about a possible connection arise out of a culture of fear that persists in Ferguson 4½ years after Browns death, citing threats mostly anonymous that protest leaders continue to receive.

Couldn’t have anything to do with the thug life. No way.
“Couldnt have anything to do with the thug life. No way.”
Obama cleaning up.
This occurs to me too. The type of people who went to Ferguson to stage the riot/protest, are the types of people who get in trouble and can meet an early demise.
As I recall, of the rioters arrested in Ferguson, very few were actually from Ferguson. These rioters made the decision to travel out of town to go to Ferguson to be part of the action.
Yeah - they were all solid citizens. (/s)
Obama’s community organizers
Ferguson was a joint Obama-Holder DOJ/#BLM political operation from the start. Never let a perfectly good crisis go to waste, especially one you helped organize.
And they got paid to go there. And the same guys showed up in Baltimore.
Just starting to turn their lives around...
Nothing more than thug activist looking for anything they can get their hands on.
Perhaps the FBI can investigate this.
Id say those two made sure few talkers survived to a court date under a Trump Administration.
Darwin Award recipients all — it was their thug life birf-right.
Darwin Award rules require “excellence” (rather than too-commonplace violence as here; a spectacular and unique catastrophe) and self-selection (no endangerment of others).
Also, one does not have to die to be an award recipient; one can be rendered sterile, thus being removed from the gene pool.
IOW, score settling and gang activity that has nothing to do with the "protests". After the Detroit riots in the 1960s, the relatively low death toll was remarked on, a collective sigh of relief went up, and then, as a year or so wore on, a hundred or more bodies popped up out of the river. Thanks Olog-hai.
No, that is not possible. It’s white racism. Being a thug is a legitimate career path for a young oppressed minority male just trying to get ahead in life.
It’s the cracker cop’s fault. And coming from certain people (not me or you), this isn’t even sarcasm.
Hey, cut Zero some slack -- if he didn't have to worry about white privileged investigators, prosecutors, and prison wardens, he wouldn't have to have a bunch of eyewitnesses with independent streaks killed. Geez.
I hope they investigate this in a thorough and transparent fashion. Few things are going to perpetuate bunker mentality more than mysterious deaths.
Simple. Useful idiots who know too much.
