When real life footage surfaced of the last hours of Mike Brown’s death it wasn’t intended to relieve some of the guilt from the Ferguson police, that has captured many views on YouTube and the news in general, thanks to the race barrier in Ferguson.
Did we “jump the gun” and paint someone as a martyr when that was the farthest thing from the truth?
That is what Ferguson Police wanted you to believe, about Mike Brown.
Yes, if it is him in the video that was horrible and bully like behavior,of the store owner and the altercation was disrespectful, but that is no reason victim Mike Brown lost his life that day.
The police officer had no idea of the earlier altercation.
However, even with the store footage included,that doesn’t account for an unarmed man with his hands in the air surrendering, that somehow ended up laying cold and still in the morgue.
You don’t come back from physical death, but this death just refutes everything we are taught.
Mike will remain here in spirit, Was Mike Brown a bully who used his weight and frightening demeanor to take advantage of that store robbery?
Does it matter now?
Why paint a negative picture, of the victim?
The police did the exact thing to Emmett Till, they said he was boisterous “colored” boy. He deserved his lynching because he was a prankster that didn’t demonstrate reverence for the rules of that segregated south. His life expired because he ALLEGEDLY was seen whistling at a white woman.
Now we live in a world were racism comes with a fake smile, and the greater need to watch you suffer and watch you fail.
The worst part about Mike Browns’ death is that now Ferguson Police are now threatening the press and using scare tactics and physical violence because of their miscarriage of justice. They want to go back to the days of Jim Crow, isolated activities, and back to their old small town ways.
Don’t believe that anything among the police, and protestors in Ferguson is anywhere near peaceful.
It is a falsehood and obvious scam to remove some of the heat off of the tragic event, that Ferguson police are responsible for that changed their town forever.
It is even more animosity and division currently in Ferguson than it was on the day of the murder.
I am not afraid to admit I was disappointed to watch that footage of Mike in that store, but I still stand behind his family and the world that obviously are emotionally distraught by the injustice of the inequality.
Inequality could change the mind of some protestors and make them ashamed of speaking up for Micheal, but don’t be fooled it is nothing but propaganda to instill more sympathy for the killer of Mike Brown.
That video in the store was released the exact time, the killer’s name was revealed.
They ain’t sorry for shit!
The cops wanted to portray the image of a ruthless negro that deserved his own inhumane death, like he was an animal.
No one deserved that death.
Why is it such a reality to some that bigots still exist and your pain and struggle still must go on, no matter how much ignorance and deceit was aimed at you to destroy your mind state and your core ideas? People are prejudiced because someone for their own short comings or failure in the human race. Excuses also turn people into racist.
Fight for justice.
Oh, yeah Arrest Darryl Wilson.
WE ALL DESERVE TO BE TREATED RIGHT!
DON’T LET SOME BULLY DEMEAN YOU WHEN YOU DON’T DESERVE IT!
In this life,it is tragic when you can still be murdered by surrendering.
Can you blame the next teenage boy that decides to resist arrest, or run from the police in Ferguson?
Apparently in this small segregated town it is safer to take your chances and break the law.
The Ferguson police have proven to the world, and to Mike Brown that they will not protect you.

The Death Of Robert “Yummy” Sandifer***messymandella***
READ THIS FIRST
The Story of Robert “Yummy” Sandifer still haunts Chicago.Maybe its because of an 11-year-old life being a killer,and being killed the same week?
However, the killers were the Hardaway Brothers,Derrick 14 Cragg 16.These brothers are still in prison for the murder of Robert “Yummy” Sandifer.However, they were also kids that were told by the leader of Black Gangsta Disciples to get rid of “Yummy.” They told the 11-year-old they were going to take him to a spot, because the local news and the police were looking for “Yummy” was wanted for the murder of Shavon Dean. Cragg and Derrick had to kill him.The murdering boys never had a chance to live,flourish, or contribute anything to society. NOW WE WILL HEAR THEIR STORIES!
“Yummy” was wanted,and he wanted his mommy.He used a phone to call his grandmother Janie Fields, and 2 hours later he was gone, forever. See they were 3 little boys that were influenced by an adult piece of shit, that used them for his own financial needs. There are many Derrick and Cragg’s in prison right now.Everything you do, trust, there are little “Yummy’s”, Cragg’s, and Derrick’s studying your every move. I am convinced love and admiration were the reason “Yummy” trusted them.These brother’s feared death penalty.However, a plea to live was given to these brothers. Who would take it all back if they could?
Poor Janie Fields thought she could get to “Yummy” in time. Her older neighbor told her he was going to wait for her to come get him.Janie packed his clothes up and traveled the neighborhood looking for her grandson. When she reached the house he called from, she thought it was a prank. The lady assured her that “Yummy” was there on her porch. He was waiting for his Grandmother, that he called “mom”. Yes, he was there,but left for his last ride.Not having any positive men in his life, he assumed the Hardaway boys were going to help him.
Instead , they took “Yummy” to a Pedestrian tunnel and shot him in his head twice.There is a noticeable cut on his face at his funeral where the bullet ended his life. The murder was a travesty because of the two lost lives that were also manipulated for gang violence. These boys were also still children.
Now, the question is why did these boys get manipulated into ruining their lives forever? They wanted to belong,and followed by example. All three children lost their lives on that day. Scared little boys admitted they did kill their friend.However, the man who ordered the hit could not be found. Some argue that they knew what they were doing. Well, the decisions you thought were right back in the day,seem stupid now.Life as you know, can change with a blink of an eye. “Yummy” was on a porch, and later riding in the back of the car hiding with his older “BGD” Members,to his own execution. These are the killers of Robert “Yummy” Sandifer” and this can serve as an example.”Yummy” died too soon,but at least his story lives for decades to come. I hope it saves someone’s life.
Derrick didn’t have an education. 2 months out of elementary school, never even entered High School. When asked about the murder Derrick stated, “The 14-year-old was blind…hardheaded know it all that had dreams of becoming a drug dealer.”The gang violence that seems glamourized by some of our favorite rappers,hides the fact of the “Yummy’s”, and lest us not forget Shavon Dean’s,that are collateral damage.
There are parties and events that I won’t go to(They think I anti-social),because of shooting and fighting.It never fails, someone starts shooting.Bullets have no name. If I pack to go somewhere, I don’t pack a gun.Knowing that many shoot outs happen at parties and events I stay away.My life is too precious. Children killing and becoming killers seem to be a cycle in many impoverished and urban neighborhoods.
Why should we care about something that happened so long ago? We’ll it is still happening. Everyone failed these boys in life,and they had the wrong people raising them,and awful examples of men.These children were lost and alone,and it made it easy to manipulate them. I can’t even imagine being in prison since 1996, or 1997.That is not my reality. However, it sadly is, for Cragg and Derrick Hardaway. How can you help save the lives of little children? Let them know the story of “Yummy”.Some mothers took off early for work to see the open casket of Robert”Yummy” Sandifer. They dragged their scared kids by their side to witness what could happen to them. They knew this life was a prime example of what can happen when you join gangs,and lead a life of crime. How long are we going to pretend that every cause does not have an effect?We have to lead by example. We have to stand together,and even if Yummy gives you nightmares.Remember his 11-year-old life on earth was a nightmare. I have pledged to help young men and women know their self-worth. We can start programs, or take 10 minutes, to let a child know we want them to have the best.Ten months before his death during his psychological exam at a state-run shelter for children, Robert “Yummy” Sandifer was asked to complete this sentence: “I am very . . .”
His answer: “sick.”
Here is a small interview from Derrick Hardaway from AP and
