Michael Brown “not perfect” straw man shot down

Lawyer for Michael Brown family in Ferguson MO, says family never said he was a “perfect kid.” Oh? Who did? Lawyer sighted straw man, sank same. Dishonestly.

 On the contrary, based on the video of their robbery of the convenience store, he’s a punk, a bully, a thief, and who knows what else?

 And arrogant. He and his companion, caught in a bit of broken-windows policing, told to get out of middle of the street, mouthed off. A don’t-tread-on-me stance is bound to get you in trouble, which in this case it did.

 Not relevant to his getting shot? Why not?

    The robbery of the convenience store was definitely relevant to Michael Brown being shot. Brown had robbed the convenience store just prior to his incident with the policeman. Michael assumed that the policeman knew what he had just done and was coming after him. This caused Michael and his companion to act in the arrogant and mouthy way that they did. Of course the media portrayed Brown as this great kid who was so looking forward to college, which couldn’t be further from the truth. It becomes a sensation media story when there is white against black alterations, buy there is never a peep about all the black against black crime that happen every weekend in Chicago. Why? Because black against black crime doesn’t fit the narrative of the existent and rampant white racial discrimination against blacks.
