What's This?

The family of 18-year-old Michael Brown is seeking for justice. They will file a lawsuit against the city of Ferguson for unlawfully shooting the unarmed Brown in Missouri last year. The family’s lawyer announced on Wednesday that they will move the case to court.


Brown’s family will speak about the lawsuit at a press conference outside St. Louis County Courthouse in Clayton on Thursday morning. Michael Brown’s killing by white police officer Darren Wilson stirred nationwide outrage. In November, the grand jury decided not to charge Wilson, adding fuel to the protests. In early March, Attorneys Anthony Gray and Daryl Parks promised the lawsuit against the Ferguson police officer.

“They have accepted (Wilson’s) self-defense,” Parks told reporters at the time. “We do not accept his self-defense.”

Following the report, several Ferguson officials, including the city police chief and the city manager, resigned from their respective posts.

The teen’s parents, Michael Brown Sr. and Lesley McSpadden, expressed disappointment when the jury in March released a statement saying the officer won’t face any charges.

“We feel and we’ve always felt from the very beginning that Officer Darren Wilson did not have to shoot and kill Mike Brown Jr. in broad daylight in the manner that he did, that he had other options available to him, and that he chose deadly force as his option. And we plan to demonstrate in a court of law to reasonable-minded people that the choice to use deadly force was unreasonable and unnecessary under those circumstances,” said Anthony Gray.

In a separate investigation, it was found that Ferguson Police Department was subjected to racial bias.

    Evil GREED! They know better down deep. The parents know all about their “gentle giant” baby.
    In the end God Almighty will get them for their sins.

    Isaiah 13:6 Howl you; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty. Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man’s heart shall melt: And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travails: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames. Behold, the day of the LORD comes, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogance of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.

        Fitz will be screaming “awwwew owww wee! My face is on fire! Help me! The dumb fundies tried to warn me! But I Fitz was too pig headed!
        I never stopped to think! God’s Kingdom is an advanced civilization that evolved before mankind did. And these “folks” from above hate wickedness! Aaaah help me for I’m tormented in this flame.

    We do know from bystander videos that cops can and will LIE when they shoot black people.
    Most recently, Walter Scott, a black man was shot in the back while running. The police officer then REPORTED the killing as another “violent attack of a black man against a white officer”.
    Had there been no bystander video showing that the officer was Lying and that the officer actually shot an unarmed man in the back…Walter Scott would have just been added to the statistics of “violent black men”

    I am sure that EVERY TIME a black man is shot dead by a white cop, the white cop writes his report to show that the black man was at fault and the white cop was “just doing his job”. EVERYTIME.

    YET…..we all know that is NOT TRUE. We know from videos that cops can and do commit criminal acts against innocent black people…and then pin the blame on the dead person. How often this happens is difficult to determine. BUT THERE IS NO DENYING THAT IT HAPPENS.

    EVERY TIME a cop shoots another black man dead…the cop is going to accuse the black man of acting in a violent and threatening way…leaving the officer no choice but to use lethal force to protect himself. And that report becomes the OFFICIAL ACCOUNT OF WHAT HAPPENED.

    NO COP is every going to write a report saying “I shot the black man 8 times in the back because he was running away from me and then planted my taser near the dead man’s body to make it appear like he grabbed my taser”

      And I feel the cop’s do us a great justice when they take out a p o s like this scumbag Michael Brown. Unlike most of you animals I work my money not like these scumbags

      • naksuthin

        That’s a little harsh.
        For example, for over 150 years white people in America….even our founding fathers…bought and sold black slaves who were kidnapped against their will…brought over in chains…and sold like cattle on the auction block. These blacks were forced to labor for FREE for the white man…washing his dishes, tilling his fields, cleaning his house, raising his kids….as slaves. Often times when they did not work as expected they were beaten…even murdered. They were the white man’s property…just like a horse or a dog. And they were treated like animals…often living in subhuman conditions that we would consider CRIMINAL today.
        Yet, to this day there has been no attempt to make reparations for 150 years of forced slave labor that millions of blacks were forced to endure without compensation. No white man ever was arrested or even spent a night in jail for the crime of slavery or kidnapping or for beating a slave or even killing on.
        So when a black kid steals a box of cigars..we need to view it in the light of 150 years of kidnapping and forced slavery.

          naksunthin, Oh how quickly we forget how 300,000 Yankees left their beautiful wives to be slaughtered on the battlefield to free the slaves.
          I just love how the ingrates try to twist history and say the Civil War was not to free the slaves. The Civil War was to free slaves!

          What debt repayment do you plan for us damn Yankees ?
          It’s better to forget and just move forward.
          Only an idiot justifies theft.

            Don’t give me that crap about fighting to free the slaves. Slavery was just used as a political excuse to weaken the Southern States.

            President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863, The proclamation declared “that all persons held as slaves” within the REBELLIOUS STATES “are, and henceforward shall be free.”
            THAT’S RIGHT the Emancipation Proclamation

            1. applied only to states that had seceded from the Union, LEAVING SLAVERY UNTOUCHED in the loyal border states.


            2. It also expressly exempted parts of the Confederacy that had ALREADY COME UNDER NORTHERN CONTROL.


            You bought the same fairy that we were taught when we were kids….that the war between the states was about FREEING THE SLAVES.

            naksuthin Your some sort of insane drunk!
            You just babble to justify your liberal self-righteous hatred of upright men.

            Ted Kaczynski also known as the “Unabomber” would be extremely jealous of your long rambling manifesto.

          • naksuthin

            Well, you have a keyboard. REFUTE what I just said….or accept it as fact and tell us how sorry you are for 200 YEARS OF KIDNAPPING, ENSLAVING, RAPING AND BEATING BLACK PEOPLE

  • caseysmydog

    Can those who were victimized by this thug sue his family?

    • Savageyote

      Sure they could, if black on black crime mattered.The city of Ferguson Missouri should sue his parents for irresponsible parenting, the City of Ferguson “ditant do nuffin rong” to Michael Brown and that was proven in a court of law.

      • Lab Three
