Go figure, a car ran over stuff that was in the middle of the road …
The WAPO reports that the memorial for Michael Brown was destroyed overnight. Individuals are saying that a car intentionally destroyed it. Really, how would they know that? Are these the same folks that said Brown was a “gentle giant,” had his hands up and was shot in the back? The memorial sits in the middle of a street near the Canfield Green apartment complex, where Brown was shot and killed. A note to those who made the memorial, it would have a longer life cycle if maybe you did it on the sidewalk instead of the middle of the road, just a thought. Better hope it doesn’t snow, or will they say the snow plow trucks intentionally destroyed the memorial as well?
People hurriedly cleaned and rebuilt a memorial to Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., on Friday morning after they said a car intentionally destroyed it.
Flowers, signs and other mementos, left in remembrance of the 18-year-old who was killed in a police shooting in August, were scattered throughout the streets, stirring supporters who saw pictures on social media to gather to restore the makeshift shrine.
Officer Timothy Zoll, the Ferguson Police Department’s public relations officer, said that no crime had been reported in connection to the memorial’s destruction. He suggested that the department would look at any video of the incident, but he did not specify whether the department would investigate.
“I don’t know that a crime has occurred,” Zoll said Friday. “But a pile of trash in the middle of the street? The Washington Post is making a call over this?”
The memorial was rebuilt overnight. It is too bad these people were not more concerned with the individual’s businesses that were vandalized, looted and burned to the ground following the grand jury decision not to indict police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown,as they are a memorial built in the middle of the street.
