On One Year Anniversary of Michael Brown’s Death … Tensions Flare in Ferguson, MO as Crowd of 50 People Looted Stores in the St. Louis Suburb
I guess this is how an anniversary is remembered of a movement that was based upon a lie …
Looting and gunfire commemorate the one year anniversary of the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Enough of the talking points of the so-called unarmed teen who was shot by former police officer Darren Wilson. When some one is attacking a police officer and going after their gun, the unarmed adjective used to describe Michael Brown is a misnomer. The subsequent reports to this incident showed that Officer Wilson did nothing wrong and it was Michael Brown that was the aggressor. As Bill Maher stated, he was hardly a gentle giant as the liberal media and race-baiting activists would have us believe. That being said, it is always sad when some one young dies, but one must also act accordingly and mitigate their damages. How sad is it that on the one year anniversary of the shooting death of Michael Brown and the birth of the faux movement, “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot,” that it be remembered with a flurry of gun shots and looting.
Tensions flared in the US city of Ferguson late Sunday as looters targeted at least one store following a day of somber remembrance to mark the anniversary of the police shooting of an unarmed black teen.
A crowd of about 50 people looted a beauty store in the St. Louis suburb and protesters grew confrontational late in the evening. There was no immediate word of any arrests.
Demonstrators had taken to the streets of Ferguson to mark the anniversary of 18-year-old Michael Brown’s death in a fateful encounter on August 9, 2014 with officer Darren Wilson.
The shooting — and a subsequent decision not to indict Wilson — led to violent unrest and set off nationwide protests and intense scrutiny of heavy-handed police tactics in a series of cases that ended in the deaths of unarmed blacks.
Sunday’s day of remembrance had been peaceful until a handful of protesters grew rowdy later in the evening. A crowd of about 300 people had gathered earlier to mark the anniversary, during which they observed four and a half minutes of silence and released two white doves.
