Family of Mike Brown Demands $20 Million of BLM’s $90 Million to Continue Community Work in Ferguson

Published

The Black Lives Matter movement has monetized on the murder of George Floyd, and many see the injustice in large amounts of money going to a single group. One of the individuals is the father of Mike Brown, a black man killed in a police-involved shooting in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014. Brown’s father, Mike Brown Sr. is also the head of a Ferguson community support group, the International Black Freedom Alliance.

The national Black Lives Matter organization reportedly received over $90 million in donations after the death of George Floyd. “Mike Brown Sr. and local community organizer Tony Russell have demanded the Black Lives Matter organization provide $20M to continue their work in Ferguson, Missouri” reported Yahoo News.

Daily Wire reports “Mike Brown was killed in an altercation with Ferguson, Missouri, police in August of 2014” and sites History.com to explain the sordid details of the altercation:

“Many details differ, but most accounts agree that [Officer Darren] Wilson saw Brown and [Dorian] Johnson walking in the street, demanded hey get on the sidewalk, then stopped his police SUV in front of them in order to confront them. He and Brown had an altercation through the open window of the car, during which Wilson fired twice. Brown and Johnson tried to leave, Wilson exited his car to pursue them, and at some point Brown turned back around to face Wilson, who then fired 12 shots, six of which hit Brown.”

Officer Wilson says he shot Brown in self-defense. Brown’s death garnered national media attention and sparked a series of protests and riots, but nothing to the degree that Black Lives Matter reached after George Floyd’s death in 2020.

Yahoo News reported, “According to the Twitter thread, Brown Sr. has only received $500 from any BLM affiliated groups since his son’s 2014 killing, despite being a community figure who organizes and supports other families in healing and empowerment.”

    How about that money goes to the people whose businesses, homes and lives were destroyed by the Ferguson riots?
    And by the way, EVERY SINGLE investigation by police, the FBI,witnesses, crime scene investigators, coroners, and physical evidence all show that the officer received a report of a theft at a store where the owner was roughed up and property was damaged. He saw Brown, who matched the description of the thief given to him. He stopped, confronted Brown, was attacked by Brown (twice his size) and had his gun nearly wrested from his hands. His actions were ruled clearly self-defense. Even Brown’s friend who was with him debunked the ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ scenario. The true BLM racists believe black people are too stupid to hear the truth so they routinely lie to them to incite violence…..

    At any rate BullshitLM needs to handover much of that money to many people and causes that are TRUE. True to the actual causes and not going to fund the ways of Marxism and communism.

Chicago 911 Dispatcher says ‘All Hell Has Broken Loose’ Crime is ‘Nonstop’

The liberal run city of Chicago is in a downward spiral suffocated by crime. Few understand what is happening better than 911 dispatchers who have the impossible task of listening to people suffer through crimes, yet unable to help them due to liberal policies creating a violent crime epidemic and police shortage.

Keith Thornton posted a video to Facebook last week saying Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is “a disgrace.” Thornton took it upon himself to warn citizens about which Chicago police district is unavailable due to the staffing shortages.

In an interview with Fox & Friends Thornton said that “all hell has broken loose” in Chicago while local officials have failed to act. “It’s been shenanigans, and it’s just nonstop, day after day. It doesn’t matter if it’s morning time, evening time, whatever –at all hours of the day, there is a massive amount of crime taking place within the city of Chicago.”

“When I’m getting text messages from officers telling me that they’re scared and afraid for their safety because they’re working by themselves, and then the beat next to them would normally back them up, they’re not even there because the cars are down. That’s a problem. It’s a safety concern” Thornton said in an interview with Chicago’s WLS-TV.

Chicago Police Department data shows homicides, shootings, thefts and criminal sexual assaults are all up drastically compared to last year. Lightfoot has not only been a proponent of defunding the police, she also behaved viciously towards law enforcement.

After Chicago Police Officer Ella French was killed during a routine traffic stop, Lightfoot blamed “guns and the violence they bring” for her death. When Lightfoot visited French’s partner who was wounded and fighting for his life at the time at the hospital, dozens of officers at the hospital turned their back on the mayor.

It’s Raining Lawsuits on Jussie Smollett; City of Chicago and Nigerian Brothers Suing Actor

The City of Chicago has confirmed it will be suing disgraced actor Jussie Smollett. The lawsuit will seek the $130,106.15 “to cover an overtime tab racked up by dozens of officers tasked with investigating Smollett’s claims that he was the victim of an attack”, reports Daily Mail UK.

According to the legal filing, the Chicago Department came to the conclusion to pursue the lawsuit after over two dozen cops spent weeks investigating the fake attack and logged 1,836 hours of overtime as a result.

Daily Mail also noted the Osundairo brothers who were hired by Smollett to stage his attack, plan to continue with their own lawsuit against Smollett’s legal team. According to the Daily Mail, “they’re seeking undisclosed damages after claiming their careers and reputations were damaged in the high-profile hoax.”

After the initial set of charges were dropped against the brothers, Abel and Ola Osundairo, they sued Smollett’s attorneys in April 2019, claiming their careers and reputations were damaged. “They claimed in the defamation lawsuit against lawyers Mark Geragos and Tina Glandian that they were maliciously portrayed as liars in the public” reports Daily Mail.

The lawsuit specifically references how Smollett’s attorneys suggested the brothers ‘might have been wearing white face’ when they attacked him and inferred that Abel had a sexual relationship with Smollett. Abel’s home country of Nigeria prohibits homosexuality. ‘Same-sex sexual activity is illegal in Nigeria, which can result in 14 years of imprisonment…if the accused is married the punishment is death by stoning.’

Therefore, Ms. Glandian’s statements about the brother being a homosexual ‘endangers him and the lives of his Nigerian family’ the lawsuit stated. The brothers’ lawsuit was stayed by a federal judge until the criminal proceedings for Smollett are completed. The brothers’ legal team is expected to file an update to the court by February 2.

Smollett, 39, was just convicted on five counts of disorderly conduct for faking his own attack and now faces jail time. “His sentencing date has not yet been set but he faces a maximum of 20 years in prison.”
