**Correction: 1:06 Michael Brown was 18, not 19.

One of the most significant events of this century happened in the early afternoon of August 9, 2014. It took place in Ferguson, Missouri, a city on the outskirts of St. Louis.
So embedded in the popular mind is this event that if you just say the name “Ferguson,” everyone knows what you’re talking about: police brutality and racial injustice.
President Barack Obama referred to it in a speech before the United Nations in September 2014: “I know the world also took notice of the small American city of Ferguson, Missouri, where a young man was killed, and a community was divided. So, yes-we have our own racial and ethnic tensions.”
The president understated the case. The shooting in Ferguson led to nights of riots and gave fuel to a new social movement, Black Lives Matter.
Given its historical importance, it would be useful, then, to make sure we have our facts straight. So here’s a quiz to test your knowledge.
First question: True or false?
A young, unarmed black man, Michael Brown, 19, was killed by a white police officer, Darren Wilson.
The answer is true.
True or false?
Wilson stopped Brown for no good reason.
Wilson, driving a police SUV, had just received a call on his radio that a local convenience store had been robbed. He saw two men walking in the middle of a nearby street who met the description of the store thieves. Wilson drove up to them.
When he asked the two men to move to the sidewalk, one of the men, Michael Brown, refused. Officer Wilson then attempted to get out of his car. But Brown blocked the door, punching the officer through the open window. As Brown tried to grab Wilson’s gun, a struggle ensued. Wilson managed to fire his gun, wounding Brown in the hand.
True or false?
Michael Brown’s back was turned to Officer Wilson when he was shot and killed.
After being shot in the hand, Brown ran away from the police car. Wilson got out of the vehicle and pursued him. Brown then suddenly turned and charged Officer Wilson.
Here’s how one witness, whose testimony closely fits the forensic evidence, described the scene: “[Brown] ran towards the officer, full charge. The officer fired several shots at him and… Mike Brown continuously came forward in the charging motion... And when he stopped, that's when the officer ceased fire... When he charged once more, the officer returned fire with, I would say… three to four shots. And that's when Mike Brown finally collapsed."
The Brown family’s own medical expert, respected pathologist Dr. Michael Baden, also conceded this point. The wounds Brown suffered were consistent with Brown charging toward Wilson, not running away.
True or false?
Before Michael Brown was shot and killed, he raised his hands above his head and shouted, “Hands up. Don’t shoot.”
Federal investigators from the Department of Justice found no credible evidence that Brown ever raised his hands in a “don’t shoot” gesture-or in any way heeded the officer’s commands for him to surrender.
The federal report concluded that “…witnesses who originally stated Brown had his hands up in surrender recanted their original accounts, admitting that they did not witness the shooting or parts of it…”
Investigators also concluded Brown never uttered the now iconic phrase.
Again, from the report: “The media has widely reported that there is witness testimony that Brown said ‘don’t shoot’ as he held his hands above his head. In fact, our investigation did not reveal any eyewitness who stated that Brown said ‘don’t shoot.’”

Not only did officer Wilson survive, he was able to peruse and stop Brown with one good eye, bruised arms and ringing ears. I'd say he's lucky to be in one piece.

When it comes to matters of police violence and corruption we all need to be careful and avoid lies being told playing us for fools and use our time wisely by focusing on cases with well documented undisputed facts like the ones captured on video or in the substantiated public record with no room for defense or excuse. Cases the media hides because the facts are set in stone where the victims of politicians and police breaking the law did NOTHING wrong to create a reason for the police to make a "mistake" or break the law out of anger to express hate or take away your property including false police reporting where large sums of auto insurance money are involved and immediate medical care is needed. The cases of breach of contract and public trust in the police where murder is involved have no statute of limitation and usually leave an undisputable paper trail of evidence connected to hospital records and insurance policies, payments and bank records, real estate records, etc. There is a mountain of evidence avoided by the press to control public opinion and protect criminals by creating confusion and emotional based division which has the ability to make "one side" accept a crime the "other side" refuses to accept and visa versa showing how symmetry is connected to energy and the phase timing of human emotion resulting in cause and effect the laws of physics describe in great detail. Reversing symmetry cannot change the truth, it can only hide it short term. Modern technology connecting space to time gives new meaning to the old saying "time tells all all". So based on personal experience I must agree with what is being expressed here regarding the media being used as a tool of corruption and political leveraging. We must all defend the US Constitution no matter where turning over the stones of truth hiding lies takes us. Before anyone criticizes me I'm not saying cases like the the murder of Kelly Thomas who did nothing wrong should be over looked, or even cases where someone did something wrong to create an excuse to kill someone should be ignored. I'm just saying time is limited and we should focus on the cases that cannot be changed by debatable argument, cases surrounding money the media has never even looked at OR did look at and refused to report on because of the people involved connected to money. Thanks to email and modern time based record keeping there are more than enough well documented crimes to show what's going on committed by people using corrupt police and the legal system where money is involved that resulted in horrific crimes. Due to legal expense and time constraints cases where someone did something wrong first before the police stepped in doing their job and over reacted should not be the priority cases. A corrupt authority will destroy society before it ever allows itself to face justice. It is up to the People to stand up and defend Freedom and the US Constitution. There is a reason criminals hide their crimes... they are afraid of us acting in good faith and obeying the law to make it work. And the only way the law works is to obey it and not allow it to get twisted around like a helix by a bunch of left wing (or right wing) politicians telling lies.

History repeats itself because people never learn the true historical facts. The false history that is being taught is that police are murderous bad people. It is dangerous when people believe this lie and start overthrowing authorities thus creating an endless cycle of fear, deaths, tension and hatred amongst the police and the communities that they want to protect. Before we make people saints and other people villains for the sake of our own political agendas, we must carefully think about the consequences of history repeating itself because of our lies.

@J PM Dang! The family got 1.5 million because Michael Brown civil rights to due process was violated. Darren Wilson did not and did not try to take him in. He wanted to kill him. No police officer should have the desire to kill a citizen of the United States. Lets see if your done. First of all, claiming that anyone who says they saw Brown raise his arms is a "LIAR" is more than a little strong. It's completely uncalled for based on the DOJ's own analysis. Just because somebody wants it not to be true, it doesn't mean it wasn't true. Michael Brown did have his hands up. The police know exactly what happened. They saw it on video. Every apartment complex has security surveillance cameras turned toward the street and parking. They came and removed the camera after the video was posted on the internet. And they removed the posting as well. What do they know? They knew he did not have his hands completely up. Why? The first bullet went into his right shoulder at the SUV. That alone would make it hard to raise. But the second bullet went into the back of his right forearm. Two bullets went into that side. So when he turned around, he raised his left arm completely and he was trying with his right. But he was "favoring" his right arm. The prosecutors knew this. So when they pressed Piaget Crenshaw about his hand being completely up, she backed down and stated "Well not completely up" And that was the inch that they were looking for to say her statement had inconsistencies. But, she was telling the truth. Inconsistencies doesn't translate to lies, unless you really want it to. And because you are arguing that they lied, you must really want it to be a lie.

@Soho tim Smokin " What have we learned....?" From your frenetic take-that people believe what they want to believe regardless of facts and truth. I've read the Constitution more times than you. That's obvious for the 14 th Amendment doesn't get applied to fit your narrative. I find it amusing your lack of logic and reason. I also find your naivety hilarious. I'm glade you're not a lawyer because you'd be terrible at it! The 1.5 million is to get the family to shut up because we all know white politicians are afraid of being called racists in the MSM complicit press. IT's always that way!!! The city leaders are political cowards. They don't have the guts to come out and say "Your son attacked a police officer and tried to kill him-you get nothing for that except maybe a fine and some mandatory parenting classes for not raising your son correctly. Jeez man you really have no clue. I'm done with you and this fruitless endeavor. Except for one question- Why the hell do you even care??? It doesn't affect you. Are you one of those non black asians that wishes he was black??

@Ozark State Your'e right about that. He uses his own opinions and makes up his own story to fit his anti police bias. He thinks 1.5 million dollar settlement = admission of guilt by city/police. So every time when a criminal /citizenTRIES TO KILL A policeman and HIMSELF ends up getting killed in self defense it's a violation of his "due process 14th Amendment rights?" BUWHAHAHAHAA!! This kid is delusional!! So when I'm the possible victim of a home invasion robbery and I shoot the criminal dead in my house I have violated his 14th amendment rights and must pay his family damages??? Man this kid has no sense of logic or comprehension nor understanding of the U.S. Constitution!! I would love to see this hidden video tape. The kid even says the police didn't go looking for Brown's buddy who was with him that day for 3 days!! LMAO!! BROWN"s buddy couldn't be found because he PURPOSELY HID FROM THE POLICE UNDER THE GUISE THAT HE FELT HIS LIFE WAS IN DANGER FROM THE POLICE BECAUSE HE WAS A WITNESS (that's the excuse all the black professional grievances peddlers told Brown's LYING buddy to use). NO REALLY he hid because he KNEW that his lie would not be believable because there were 4 other witnesses whom saw more than he did and they all said NOT ONCE was there a "hands up"by brown. Well we tried to get this obviously mentally impaired kid to see the light but you can't help the willfully ignorant i guess.

@Soho tim Smokin Since when did being part of a gang require resisting arrest? I wanna see you apply that somewhere and say how it makes sense? Doesn't matter if part of a gang. After threating and getting physical with people at the store and punching an officer I doubt he said within those few seconds "I'm a changed man" He was willing to harm other people for cigarillos and on top of the witness accounts he did it and charged. I say again, The San Bernardino case was used to compare witnesses. These witnesses claimed "innocent man shot". At this point it isn't just there. It's around the whole *COUNTRY* they do this. Culture prevents delusion now?

@Ozark State He did not charge. There was never any charging. The charging aspect was inserted to assist Darren Wilson. Its ridiculous and you have accepted ridiculous because it assist Darren Wilson. He was shot right after he turned around. There was a second and a half in between the shots. If Darren Wilson didn't hit Michael Brown on the sixth shot, he would have kept unloading his gun until he hit Michael Brown with a bullet to stop him from running away. How are in front of a San Bernardino California case, trying to reason what happened there to a Ferguson Missouri Case. San Bernardino is 1,789 miles away from Ferguson Missouri. Different people different police and different culture. If Michael Brown belonged to a gang culture, there might be some wiggle room. Then we could see how many people used this charging maneuver. But I'm willing to money down that Michael Brown was not apart of a gang and he did not charge Darren Wilson.

Absolutely disgraceful to use someone's death and distort or disregard facts to falsify a narrative to serve your own personal agenda and need for wanton violence and destruction. That would be like peddling a lie that cops barged into a home and shot to death a woman asleep alone in her bed for no reason in order to perpetuate your waning agenda when what really happed was the cops were there to serve a warrant for someone else in the home who upon seeing the cops enter, shot at and wounded one of them while the woman was standing next to him in the dark and she got caught in the crossfire that he caused...

While BLM may have began with this incident. I believe the rumblings started with Treyvon Martin. A part of me even back then figured that it wouldnt have even been on the national news if he were white. Now we have these BLM "protestors" openly calling for the LYNCHING of whites everywhere and that same media DEFENDING THEM.

J PM Сарын өмнө
@bruce vann I suggest you read Holder's DOJ investigation report ordered by Obama. It's 86 pages and if you' have just average common sense logic and intelligence you can easily conclude that this was self defense by a police officer who was conducting a lawful investigation and giving lawful instructions to the two suspects. Apparently the Bully robber Brown chose to go instigate a fight with a police officer after receiving that lawful order as he walked down THE MIDDLE of a busy street forcing cars to swerve around he and his lying criminal friend. Oh I forgot to mention the strongarm robbery and assault of the old little Indian store owner -the very reason the cop was there in the first place. Check this out and then post what you think is closest to the "REAL story. Stories told/written about incidents are rarely 100% accurate as there are too many variables and unknowns and differing interpretations of what people saw, etc.... However we CAN diligently investigate these incidents and through forensic science, evidence examination, witness interviewing etc...and get damn near close to it.

bruce vann 1. Police stopped Brown because he matched the description of a robbery. This is very common police procedure. The video a court case confirmed this. 2. The video is going off the evidence that was presented to the Grand Jury. You and everyone can view the court case. It wasn’t just the autopsy but the crime scene forensics and ballistics also confirms Wilson testimony while being inconsistent with your “what if”. Witness testimony also supports Wilson case and even witnesses who originally supported Brown account retracted their original testimony because it was inconsistent or out right false.
bruce vann
bruce vann Сарын өмнө
@Joshua Karas sure. First, Wilson didn't stop the men because of the stolen cigarillos. He stopped them simply because they were in the street walking. Second, on a number of occasions this video takes for gospel what the officer says and assumes a lot. For example, we don't know whether Brown reached for his gun and we don't know who initiated the confrontation. Also we don't know whether Brown was charging at Wilson. The autopsy being consistent with the story doesn't mean that it's inconsistent with another set of facts. What if Brown walked up to Wilson to hear what he said, Wilson tried to open the door and it hit Brown, Wilson escalated things and reached for his gun, Brown tried to put his hand to shield his face and was shot in the hand and then ran off? That story is consistent with what we know to be facts AND it makes sense unlike the story above describing a human being like some irrational animal. Those are the issues at the top of my head.

What are you talking about? Racial profiling? Mike Brown was ON CAMERA robbing a small store IN HIS OWN NEIGHBORHOOD and physically assaulting the store owner. The police were called. A description of him & his partner went out over police radios. He wasn't hard to find (he was a large kid) and all the officer did was ask him to NOT walk in the street. Mike Brown escalated that situation by being defiant and disrespectful. ALL of these facts have been corroborated by eyewitnesses from the neighborhood in the trial and in a subsequent investigation done by Obama's "wingman" Eric Holder. If you have "other" facts about that case, let's hear them.

The problem is the relation between police enforcement and the public isnt as straightforward as it is assumed. There is a pre existiting mutual bias, mutual prejudice that will result in irrational interactions. In my experience, the way officers are portrayed in movies such as Braveheart or Rambo aren't much different from reality.

RIOT SOLUTION Want to stop riots and stop injuring and killing people? The Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu and his police force, who have dealt with as much viiolence as much as any human leader on earth, came up with an extremely effective and physically harmless method to disperse crowds, IMMEDIATELY. It is easy to deploy safely, never fails, and is very inexpensive. What is this ingenious and effective method? It is called “Skunk Water”. “Skunk Water” smells like, well ya know, and is fired through fire truck water cannons. It not only sends the crowds of rioters running like Col. Jackson’s enemies running down the streets, briars, brambles, and bushes where the rabbits couldn’t go, but will send them home for a long shower and a change of clothes. No one, but no one will continue rioting smelling like a skunk, nor will anyone want to be around anyone who smells like a skunk, (right politicians?) and it encourages social distancing. Plus it takes the rioters time to dry the clothes they were wearing before they can burn them and perhaps by that time their urge to riot may be somewhat diminished! And "IF" they rode together in vans or buses to get there, how will they get home? SKUNK WATER MAY BE THE ANSWER!

This is so wrong. It starts off wrong. Wilson saw two people in the street. The record says that he recognize that they matched the description. But he did not recognize them. This is where the lie begins. Darren Wilson did not know who they were, he yelled out an order out of his window and kept driving. This is not mentioned in the video, because they want to keep Darren Wilson on top of his game, when he just wasn't that sharp.

@J PM For you listed in the contents of my post, I need to inform you that my discussion was in the Grand Jury Proceeding, where Michael Brown suppose to have the only advocate. Dang! Respond like you know law. Michael Brown had one hand up and the other he was favoring. That small technicality is what they used to make somebody changed their story from both hands up to one hand up and the other he was favoring. And that alteration is all they needed to make somebody alter their story. You act like there were no other witnesses there. More witnesses stated that Michael Brown was being fired at while he was running away (12) than said that he was not (5) . Hiding behind a car is no a reason not to see Michael Brown get shot as he was running away. Heck, he was looking through Darren Wilson at Michael Brown, and could tell he got hit. There was no punching of Darren Wilson. If a witnesses stated that, you have just found one liar. Darren Wilson's darkest facial mark was on the back of his right cheek. It is impossible to get a solid hit through the left window of a chevy tahoe to the back of the right cheek of a person who is sitting under the steering wheel. This trying to drag him out of the car mess, is the cartoon being played in your head. Why do it seem like I hate the police. That is a crazy notion. Why, because I don't give them full immunity? I read the DOJ report and I know the DOJ report is the effort and mirror image of the local report. Why should I do something about it? These are evidence collecting professionals. They know exactly what to destroy. I know what happened.

@Soho tim Smokin Triggered much?: "Michael Brown had no advocate???" For Christ's sake he had the US AG and the PRESIDENT investigating/handling the case. Michael Brown never had his "hands up" multiple witnesses saw him attack Wilson by punching him in the face trying to drag him out of the car and go for his gun etc... There were witnesses for Brown-they did not show up for grand jury because they were lying about what happened and knew they'd be easily discredited. This applies especially his friend who wasn't even in position to see Brown charge back at the officer because he was hiding behind a car ducked below. Finally, you just seem to hate the police. You cite all this supposed evidence yet offer none to check. If you have all this evidence why aren't you doing something about it:? Wheres the video? You can formulate all the theories you want but it doesn't make them true. Did you even read the DOJ's report??

@J PM Non-credible? What is non-credible is the justice system that conducted this case. You may not have a pair of BS glasses. But this entire process was BS. Michael Brown was not going to get any justice, and was denied due process, the justice system of Missouri offered him no advocate. So they just allowed a maniac cop to shoot down a black teenager and did not charge the officer. That is exactly what you can say happened.

@J PM I did not say that it wasn't common. This case was not ran correctly, and because there was an appeal of the gag order, and the State of Missouri upheld the gag order, that implicates the State legislature knowing precisely what was going on. You can pull the wool over eyes that don't want to see, but not everybody can be made blind. They ran an appearance of a routine Grand Jury proceeding. But they showed their hand when they presented the defense's case; allowed the defense's witnesses to testify; and kept the lawyers who had clients with information against Darren Wilson out of the proceedings, and made them sit in the lobby of the proceedings. It was a done deal. When you have the defense's lawyer as prosecutor, it will always go his way. With no judge, and no opposing lawyer, he walks without jeopardy. If we had the defense's lawyer at every case we would have no prisoners. Yes those witnesses came after he had 400,000 dollars in a go fund me out of trouble. Two and two makes four. Anybody could have proved it, but Michael Brown had no advocate. Nobody for him was allowed in the arena. Nobody had a chance to prove it because it did not make it to trial, which the only place the truth comes out. But trial was avoided in the great state of Missouri.

@Soho tim Smokin A gag order for a grand jury is A VERY COMMON legal procedure done to protect the innocent. You write as if it's "suspect'." hahaha! Look it up. Grand juries having gag orders put on them are not uncommon or unusual at all in ANY state of the USA. They also are not permanent either. I must admit you are skilled at creating fiction and you should consider being a fiction writer or screen writer. Also, prove that Wilson used his go fund me money to "buy witnesses" please. You can't so it's just conjecture on your part. Michael Brown's family got funded over 150,000 for "go fund me" drive and a 1.5 million dollar settlement from the city of Ferguson. His relatives even sold "Michael Brown" t-shirts! Yeah they SURE were upset over his death! I think because Obama,Holder and the DOJ 's investigation did NOT prove that "a racist maniac cop gunned down an innocent gentle congenial Harvard bound black law student" but instead proved a young strong black bully with self control and temper and attitude issues tried to bully intimidate and beat a cop to death or near death, that plan B was "we found "racism" everywhere at the Ferguson PD and offices.

leftists and rioters who dogmatically swear by 'the narrative' don't care about what actually happened. Their indignation is that, despite it being known the media complete ignore facts, coming up with their own fictional story which appeals to pathos and drives engagement and ad revenue, that the criminal investigations do not also deliberate on these fabrications. To them, it's "inconceivable that I can turn on my TV every day and see what's happening and nobody is doing anything about it!"

DISGUSTING. OBAMA is essentially to blame for the creation of the BLM movement and the riots in Ferguson and fast forward to today's riots wow... It all makes perfect sense now. No wonder TRUMP got elected. The Democratic part at the very least are incompetent, at the very worst they are evil diabolical pedophiles who literally want to be big brother.

Ferguson, the birthplace of a lie that founded a violent movement. The media is not only complicit they're practically the architect. The media reminds of the clever schoolkid that instigates a fight but is always decoupled enough to escape culpability.

BLM and leftists liberals will always make a situation similar to this about race. "Its all racially motivated!" they say. Its not. If there's any situation where a cop killed a person for doing something illegal or threatening a life and the cop was white and the perpetrator was black, they'll yell "white supremacy", "systemic racism", and "police brutality". Im telling you guys, if a similar situation occurred and the ethnic races were reversed, no liberal or leftist would be yelling the phrases I just mentioned.
