One thing for sure can be gleaned from the whole Ferguson/Michael Brown story: “Never let the facts or the truth get in the way of a good violent protest or looting.” While many different important issues are at play, such as the growing over-militarization and over-reach of local police forces, for this case in particular those stirring the pot made sure racism was indeed the overwhelming ingredient.
From day one the Mainstream Media ran with and massaged inflammatory hot-button points to immediately fan the flames of a racial divide. By running with unsubstantiated memes such as : “Hands Up-Don’t Shoot”, and “unarmed black youth” a false narrative was instantly created gathering unquestioned loyalty and support from those easily herded into such a finger-pointing blame-game.
Shortly after the incident Stefan Molyneux of freedomainradio.com published this video unveiling the facts of the case that the Mainstream Media had been ignoring. The Mainstream Media had let “Hands Up-Don’t Shoot” become the life-blood of public protests, when in fact it had nothing whatsoever to do with what actually went down on that tragic day.
The Truth About Michael Brown and the Ferguson Riots
“The facts presented in this presentation will change your perspective of what has happened”
On October 24 Molyneux released another video after some new information had emerged that:
“really changes the entire narrative and will result in any reasonably-minded people apologizing for all of the earlier race-bating that has occurred in this tragic situation”.
What Pisses Me Off About The Michael Brown Shooting
As evidence was being presented to the Grand Jury, Michael Brown’s grandmother and his cousin were selling some Michael Brown merchandise in a parking lot outback of some store. According to police reports, Michael Brown’s mother pulled up in a car with “some people” and screamed at her relatives: ” You can’t sell this shit!” and one of the relatives yelled back and demanded to know if she had a patent Michael Brown. Things escalated and an unidentified “companion” began assaulting Brown’s cousin with a metal pipe…..and grabbed the cash box.
Molyneux also starts looking into some of the Grand Jury testimony of the case.
The Ferguson Verdict: Propaganda Decoded – Darren Wilson, Michael Brown and Racism
Stefan Molyneux examines the Ferguson Grand Jury verdict in the Michael Brown shooting case and the reaction to the news that Officer Darren Wilson will not face criminal charges.
Ferguson grand jury witnesses often cited fear in testifying
The jurors’ decision not to indict Wilson prompted prosecutors to make public more than 4,700 pages of transcripts and reports in hope of quashing suspicions that Wilson got away with murder. The tactic did not work, and rioting erupted in Ferguson this week.
But the documents do provide a look at what some witnesses went through as they wrestled with the fallout of witnessing a controversial killing.
Some feared saying something that would upset neighbors if it did not match other witness accounts.

MICHAEL BROWN’S MOTHER, STEP FATHER UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR VIOLENT CONFRONTATION OVER ‘JUSTICE FOR MIKE BROWN’ MERCHANDISE
The mother and stepfather of slain teenager Michael Brown are under investigation in Ferguson, Missouri, for an alleged late October violent incident with other Brown family members, a fight that erupted over “Justice For Mike Brown” merchandise.
“The probe of the October 18 attack remains an ‘active investigation,’ according to Stephanie Karr, city attorney in Ferguson, Missouri,” the Smoking Gun reported on Monday.
The police report about the Oct. 18 incident, taken by reporting officer Stephanie Wilson, details how at about 1:23 p.m. that day, Officer Wilson was called to the parking lot of Red’s BBQ on West Florissant “for a report of 20 subjects fighting.”
“Upon arriving, I contacted Gordon, Pearlie [Brown’s paternal grandmother, the mother of Michael Brown, Sr.],” Officer Wilson wrote. “Gordon stated she was selling ‘Justice For Mike Brown’ merchandise with Cosey, Matthew and Petty, Tony on the above parking lot when a large group of about 20-30 subjects ‘jumped out of vehicles and rushed them.’”
One of the people who allegedly “rushed” at them was Brown’s mother, Lesley McSpadden. Gordon, Brown’s paternal grandmother, made sure Brown’s mother, McSpadden, was aware she was Brown’s grandmother, and said, “unless McSpadden could produce documentation saying she had a patent on her son’s name, she (Gordon) was going to continue to sell her merchandise.”
McSpadden’s mother, Desureia Harris—Brown’s maternal grandmother—then allegedly said to Gordon, Brown’s paternal grandmother: “You don’t know my grandson like that. I’m gonna tear this shit down.”
“Harris then proceeded to rip down t-shirts and other items hanging on the line,” Officer Wilson wrote.He continued:
Gordon was then repeatedly struck in the back and left side of the head by an unknown subject(s). Gordon stated there were 20-30 unknown subjects tearing her booth apart, and she was knocked to the ground. Gordon heard McSpadden yell to an unknown subject ‘that’s Caluina’s mom, get her ass.’ McSpadden then ran up and punched Gordon. A subject believed to be Keyanna Ewings also assaulted Gordon by punching her. Cosey and Petty were assaulted by unknown subjects during the incident. Over $1500.00 in merchandise (shirts and afghans) and a suitcase containing at least $400 in cash was stolen by unknown subjects. The suspects then fled the scene prior to police arrival.
The incident put Petty, one of the people with Brown’s paternal grandmother, in the hospital. “Petty was transported to Christian Northeast by EMS for injuries sustained during the assault,” Officer Wilson wrote.
The next page of the three-page police report notes that Gordon “identified the following subjects as ‘attackers’ during the incident: Bernard Ewings, Keyanna Ewings, Louis Head (McSpadden’s boyfriend) Tonya Ewings, Lesley McSpadden, and Desureia Harris.”
Since this incident, which the police are still investigating, the grand jury in Ferguson decided against indicting Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Brown. That decision led to riots nationwide, centered in Ferguson—riots that started after Brown’s stepfather, Louis Head, urged crowds on Monday night to “burn this bitch down.”
On Laura Ingraham’s radio program on Wednesday, Missouri’s Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder called for Head to “be arrested and charged with inciting to riot” for that.
