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.

Employees Completely Helpless as Shoplifters Walk Out With Thousands Worth of Goods at Oregon Lowes

Published

shoplifter

Social media Twitter account @libsoftiktok which states in the bio it posts “all things insane & hypocritical” posted a one-minute video showing “2 people walk out of an Oregon Lowe’s with carts of stolen merchandise. Employees look on and are unable to do anything.”

As the video plays, words highlighted red appear that read, “INCREDIBLE STATE OF OREGON, USA” and “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY.” The video takes place at a Lowes store and epitomizes the sad times we are in.

Within the first eight seconds of the video, the two robbers, with filled carts, simply stroll out of the store as if they were paying customers. The Lowes employee asks the men “can you show me the receipts?” The young man appears to flash something while saying “right here.”

The female employee then says “no, I don’t think so” knowing the men did not pay for the items. The two thieves continue to walk the carts out of the store and a second, elderly Lowes employee attempts to stop the men, shouting “hey” as he follows them.

The female employee stops the elderly male employee from pursuing the robbers saying, “it’s not worth it.” As the robbers have successfully exited the store, into the parking lot, the male recording the video then asks the employees, “doesn’t it suck you guys can’t do anything? I mean I think it’s just amazing.”

The video then shows the men in the parking lot throwing the stolen items into a red Subaru where it appears others were waiting to help. A voice can be heard explaining that the guys are packing the car with stolen goods, and another man explains it happens “every day.”

“Dude that’s thousands of dollars – I’m an electrician, bro” the videographer explains of the sheer amount of goods being stolen. The thieves close the back door and the videographer zooms in to the back of the car to show the “license tag” before the car speeds away. The red highlighted words “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY” remained on the video the whole time.
