Michael Brown Jr. Didn’t Have to Die – Criminal Empowerment

Shortly after the shooting death of Michael Brown Jr. he was lionized in print and video media. More importantly, in social media. Unarmed black kid, murdered by a white racist cop.

Not so. Michael Brown Jr had, as is the current vernacular, issues. Bold and overbearing disrespect for authority. His grandmother tried to rein him in. No luck. He ran with the pack. Left to his own, and others devices he spiraled out of control. Weed, colt .45 and a circle of friends that had no mission in life but to get high and cause trouble.

If he wanted to cause a stink and bring law enforcement attention to himself all he had to do was rip off a store and attempt to disarm an officer. What on earth did he think would happen?

I recently had the opportunity to listen to some of his gangster rap. Total BS. Lyrics that don’t rhyme about killing, taking drugs, drinking and ho’s. Wow.
