So up until now I’ve not said much about what’s going on in Ferguson, but today when I saw another article about it something came over me and I felt compelled to speak out. Here’s my two cents;
At first I was right there with everyone who said that an innocent man was shot and killed by a police officer, but as more informative information has been released my views on all of it has changed quite a bit.
This news articles and many others shed the real truth of what happened (the autopsy proves some of it). http://www.foxnews.com/us/2014/08/20/missouri-cop-was-badly-beaten-before-shooting-michael-brown-says-source/
I’m so sick of people bad mouthing the police officer and making Michael Brown out to be some innocent person who did no wrong. Michael Brown beat the living shit out of the police officer’s head and in return the police officer shot him to death…hmmm…what was the police officer supposed to do? Just let Michael Brown kill him? Head injuries are nothing to take lightly. I happen to know first hand what it’s like to get beaten severely in the head. I was jumped when I was 17 years old and beaten severely (mostly in the head). I wound up with three huge lumps on the back of my head and a severe concussion (according to the doctor I saw in the ER). Years later I almost lost my eyesight due to this head injury. I will never forget that night for as long as I live. It was the first time I really felt like I was gonna die. I’m really lucky that I didn’t lose consciousness or I probably would’ve died. If I would’ve had a weapon on myself the night I was jumped…who knows what would’ve happened. So as someone who has been in a somewhat similar situation, I can imagine that the police officer went with his training and instinct in that situation and as a result Michael Brown was killed.
Things that keeps going through my head is “Who the fuck is stupid enough to attack a police officer anyways?! What the hell did he (Michael Brown) think was gonna happen? Did he think the police officer was just gonna take the beating and nothing would come of it?”. Okay, so maybe the police officer shouldn’t have shot him so many times, but…
A. Michael Brown just kept coming at him (even after the officer shot him)
B. If you thought you were quite possibly about to die, what would you do?
C. The police officer did have a severe head injury…who knows if his thought process was effected by this.
And in closing I’d like to say that I know that there are quite a few corrupt police officers out there, but there are still good ones, too. Please don’t form an opinion based on prejudice of either party (Michael Brown or the police officer), but base your opinion on the truth of what happened, not rumor or false stories.
I’m done, so done. I’m not gonna wait on their fucking asses anymore. Then they treat me like shit. Family or not. I’m sick of it!
