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.

Report: Texas Cop Missed Chance To Shoot Gunman At Uvalde Elementary School

Published

Police

A Uvalde police officer armed with a rifle requested to shoot the gunman who committed the mass shooting outside Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, before the gunman entered the elementary school, a report revealed on Wednesday.

Some of the 21 victims killed in the shooting at Robb Elementary School, including 19 children, likely “could have been saved,” according to the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT).

The 26-page report reveals that “Prior to the suspect’s entry into the building at 11:33:00, according to statements, a Uvalde Police Officer on scene at the crash site observed the suspect carrying a rifle outside the west hall entry. The officer, armed with a rifle, asked his supervisor for permission to shoot the suspect. However, the supervisor either did not hear or responded too late. The officer turned to get confirmation from his supervisor and when he turned back to address the suspect, he had entered the west hallway unabated.”

The report additionally notes that the officer would have been justified in using deadly force to stop the gunman without the supervisor’s confirmation.

“The officer was justified in using deadly force to stop the attacker. Texas Penal Code § 9.32, DEADLY FORCE IN DEFENSE OF PERSON states, an individual is justified in using deadly force when the individual reasonably believes the deadly force is immediately necessary to prevent the commission of murder (amongst other crimes),” the report states. “In this instance, the UPD officer would have heard gunshots and/or reports of gunshots and observed an individual approaching the school building armed with a rifle. A reasonable officer would conclude in this case, based upon the totality of the circumstances, that use of deadly force was warranted.”

“Furthermore, the UPD officer was approximately 148 yards from the west hall exterior door,” it continues. “One-hundred and forty-eight yards is well within the effective range of an AR-15 platform. The officer did comment that he was concerned that if he missed his shot, the rounds could have penetrated the school and injured students. We also note that current State of Texas standards for patrol rifle qualifications do not require officers to fire their rifles from more than 100 yards away from the target. It is, therefore, possible that the officer had never fired his rifle at a target that was that far away.”

“Ultimately, the decision to use deadly force always lies with the officer who will use the force. If the officer was not confident that he could both hit his target and of his backdrop if he missed, he should not have fired,” the report notes.

Gunman In Highland Park Shooting Was ‘Dressed In Women’s Clothing’

Police

The suspected gunman who opened fire at a Fourth of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois, on Monday was wearing women’s clothing as a disguise, police announced Tuesday.

The attack killed six people and injured dozens more, according to Lake County Coroner Jennifer Banek. The suspect, 22-year-old Robert E. Crimo III, was apprehended by police later that day near Lake Forest, Illinois.

“During the attack, Crimo was dressed in women’s clothing,” said Sgt. Christopher Covelli, of the Lake County Major Crime Task Force, FOX 10 reported. “Investigators do believe he did this to conceal his facial tattoos and his identity and help him during the escape with the other people who were fleeing the chaos.”

“He brought a high-powered rifle to this parade,” Covelli said. “He accessed the roof of a business via a fire escape ladder and began opening fire on the innocent Independence Day celebration-goers.”

“After the shooting, Crimo blended in with the crowd and walked to his mother’s home in the area where he borrowed her vehicle, Covelli said. A member of the community spotted Crimo driving and called 911,” FOX 10 reported. “Crimo was pulled over and arrested during a traffic stop about five miles north of the shooting.”

Investigators have interrogated Crimo and reviewed his social media but have not been able to determine a motive for the attack, Covelli said.
