Skip to comments.Sudden death on Canfield Drive in Ferguson [the real story of Michael Brown]

If he slept at all the night before and that much is doubtful Michael Brown woke up at his grandmothers apartment on the morning of August 9, angry. He did not know this would be the last day of his life. He probably didnt care.
How do I know this? I know it in part by researching Browns history, in part by observing his actions later that day, and in part by having been where Michael Brown was. When I was younger, anger drove me almost as hard as it drove him. Many of the same things that angered Michael, angered me. For years, I drank deeply from a toxic spring of hatred. I consumed the poison. I wallowed in it. Thank God, I lived long enough to find the antidote. Michael did not. The poison not Officer Darren Wilson killed him before he had a chance.
In 1999, when Michael was no more than three, his parents separated. Not much had held them together anyway. They had never married. By all accounts, it was a nasty split. Michael moved with his mother, Lesley McSpadden, to a new neighborhood and a new school.
Growing up, sometimes Michael would call his father and ask to be rescued. That was not easy. And the two different families, we really didnt get along, so it was kinda hard for me to go pick him up, said Michael Brown Sr. in one of his more honest moments. I had to have a family member go get him and bring him over to the house. The tension unsettled Michael. How could it not have?

Jesse Lee Peterson is a good man.
Yes he is!
I thank God for him.
Consider what Brown’s life would have been like had he not had that confrontation with Officer Wilson that August day. Brown with a high school diploma, but no skills and a huge attitude would likely never held a steady job and probably would have lived on welfare. He may have sired one or more illegitimate children with baby mommas, but would never have been a father to them. His life would revolve around drugs, sex and petit crime. Eventually he may have been prosecuted and spent time in jail. If Black lives matter his wouldn’t have amounted to much. The race hustlers would done nothing to turn his life around anymore than they have helped thousands of other young Blacks just like Brown.
Wow, excellent article. I encourage everyone to read it.
The Obama White House sent THREE representatives to 292 pound thug Michael Brown’s funeral.
The Obama White House sent one representative to Margaret Thatcher’s funeral.
He's an old friend of FR.
Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin: apprentice thugs.
My view? The Gentle Giant was a filthy,worthless parasite and punk who,had he not died when he did,would have wound up on death row by his 25th birthday,very probably because he murdered a cop (which he almost succeeded in doing moments before his death).
Still more discussion of Saint Michael of Ferguson.
Despite efforts to debunk the worshippers, substantial numbers of Americans are absolutely determined to promote his canonization.
More and more of America’s children are receiving a “Lord of the Flies” upbringing.
These black children are just the canary in the coal mine.
Yes. Jesse Lee is a thoughtful guy.
I have a lot of respect for Jesse Lee Peterson.
He tries to become a positive force for young Black men in his community. He makes a difference in their lives.
It is sad, that this is all that many of them really need, a man there even if an adoptive uncle of sorts to give them good council, keep them busy and out of trouble.
What is unfortunate, is that people in the Black communities are convinced that they have problems nobody else goes through.
“Oh me oh my, my dad isn’t here and the White man did this to us...” On and on it goes, supported by older people who never took any responsibility and can’t let the kid in on that. So they blame the easy patsy for all their problems on Whites or come other boogie man.
White kids are the victims of divorce too. Sometimes they lose both parents early in their lives. Losing a family at three can destroy the primary linkage to relationships for a lifetime. These are very important years for a kid. They will mourn the loss of their parents for years, even decades after the fact.
How are you supposed to develop a relationship to people who may leave? How does this kid process the desire to see his/her parents get back together five years later, not realizing at least one of them is already remarried with replacement kids?
If these kids are lucky, they may see their mom every few months, and their dad once every two or three years. The unlucky ones never see them again. Somehow they survive.
The media loves to play the blame game right along with minorities. It thereby fails them and society by enabling them to do all manner of evil, as if it is justified.
The victims of these enabled kids, are then justified to do things too because something negative happened to them.
Ultimately that’s what “Black Lives Matter” is all about. Blame Whitey because no Black person is capable of taking owner ship of what they and the other members of their race are doing to each other.
Jessie tries to unravel this one young man at a time. He deserves kudos and support.
