Rest in Peace #MikeBrown, You will not be Forgotten

Monday, August 25, 2014

Good morning:

Today is Mike Brown’s funeral.

May peace be with you.

I believe you were executed by a man who has lost his way and more than once I have felt an urge to call upon the darkness to obliterate him from the surface of the Earth for what he did.

I have had the same urge to put a pox on the house of every person who has contributed money to the man who killed you.

I am not going to do that.

I have turned my back to the darkness.

I am going to follow the path of light.

And from this place expose the truth.

Darren Wilson cannot hide from God.

He will be held to answer

And so will all of his supporters.

Rest in Peace.

You will not be forgotten.

  1. Thank you for those kind words, Professor.

    Ten days after Mike Mike was killed, two St. Louis City police officers shot and killed a 25-year-old black man who reportedly had a steak knife. Each officer shot him 6 times; they began shooting 23 seconds are exiting their car. We know all of this because it was caught in video. Contrary to the police statement, the man was not close to them (he appeared to be approximately 20 feet, not the 2-3 feet they claimed) and he was not holding the knife in an “overhand grip” as police said – his hands were at his sides. Police had no choice but to be transparent, but they are asking us to believe we did see what we saw – a wholly unnecessary shooting. I am writing to every media outlet and elected official that I can to protest this killing. It’s as bad or worse than Mike Brown’s killing.

    And yet another AA male was killed in police custody!

    Victor White III of Louisiana was arrested and charged after he was found with narcotics. He was searched and taken to jail (in handcuffs). The story is that when they arrived to book White on charges, he was non compliant and refused to leave the vehicle. When the police attempted to force the issue, he (somehow) got to the gun that was hidden in his trousers and shot himself in the back. How is a handcuffed man able to shoot himself in the back???
    This is outrageous!!! The cops are murdering people!!!!

    The Audio Destruction of A “Witness”

    • Disappointed says:

      I suppose he could have shot the first round from inside the car but the shots were one right after the other and IMO there would have been some kind of pause while he climbed out. With that said I have no clue. I have not shot a round from inside a car climbed out while still shooting. I expected some kind of pause from that beat down the cop just received to get his bearings. That is meant as sarcasm.

      • Disappointed says:

        LLMPapa I did not realize what the officer’s friend said until just now. She said Michael and his friend turned around…. I thought the friend was hiding behind the car. Is she saying both turned around and the officer only decided to kill one of the “threatening” jaywalkers? I’m confused.

        • LLMPapa says:

          Yep she’s saying THEY as in Michael and his friend. At 00:40 above…”Michael and his friend turn around….”

          Interesting to note, she says they turned around at 35′ away then “all of a sudden he just started to bum rush him. He just started coming at him full speed.” THEN and only then is when she says the cop started shooting. “He just started shooting. He just kept coming”

          Question #1: The shots being fired last about 10 seconds. Just exactly how long is she thinking it took an 18 yo kid running “full speed” to travel 32-33 feet (35 less the “falling 2-3 feet away”)?

          Question #2: How did his dead body get BACK to the starting point of this charge at 35′ away from the cop’s car?

        • Disappointed says:

          Sorry I think I can explain what I mean. Had coffee thoughts are together. The first round inside the car we have been told a struggle for the gun occurred so if that were true how did officer gain composure and continue firing without the pause. IMO there should be a pause, no?

  4. MKX says:

    IMO, the forensics and corroboration with witness testimony is about 1000 times more probable than that taken by the jurors to prove, or make reasonable, the tale told by George Zimmerman.

    But, sadly, this whole affair will come down to the white being more honest than any black factor that seems to be (1,000,000 ) times (whatever BS they make up that has the most tiny probability).

    And the above is what those of us who call ourselves scientists should be aware of.

    I deal with patent law and, because it is a field full of technical people, reasonable is not the same a possible.

    For example, if I told you that that guy was killed because an aircraft engine fell on him, I would state, although possible, it is not reasonable unless there is an engine and injuries corresponding to being hit by an engine.

    In the Zimmerman trial, lack of evidence for very unlikely claims were dismissed out of hand with some sort of non sequitor of “well, it is possible”.

    The objective person, if that is the case, then must determine relative probability of the situation.

    What is more possible?

    A guy with a gun getting mad and shooting another who did not do as he said or

    A guy without a gun rushing a guy with a gun because he wants to beat that guy to death, knowing that the beating will put him in prison for a long time.

    And that is/was the probability set in both this case and Zimmerman.

    In fact, the Zimmerman and this case both have forensics leaning in the favor of the victim.

    • YQ says:

      Right.

      Its very possible even though we dont see this type of thing regularly. SMH. We are superhuman in our ability to hide guns from police and to be able to use them while we are handcuffed to commit suicide. We can make guns appear out of thin air and disappear as well. So of course an AA male would have no trouble running into a hail of bullets. This is ridiculous! We are being murdered!

      Its gotten to the point that (as a precaution) I’m telling my wife what to do in the case that this happens to me.

      • MKX says:

        I read an article that used Bayesian probability to determine the possibility that Zimmerman was innocent and the result was:

        < 0.09%

        What the scientists who supported Zimmerman did was "rationalize" a possibility with such whoppers as

        "well, Trayvon could have been and expert at punching, so there were no wounds on his hands"

        Yes, I know how to hammer fist at short range, but that leaves the very low probability that Trayvon knew about that or that a "few" hammer fists to the face by a rank amateur like me would have left Zimmerman looking like swollen bloody pulp.

        And that is the other factor ignored.

        The defenders looked at each possibility as a unique event unrelated to another, thus violating a law of probability that requires a multiplication of a series of events.

        There stupidity is easy to debunk.

        No person would argue that a pro golfer has less that a 50/50 chance of making a birdie on a hole, correct?

        So how come no pro has shot 18 under par – 54?

        easy

        The probability = 1/2 to the 18th power.

        What Bayesian logic does is to make a relative comparison of the act that Trayvon Martin was claimed to have done and compare that to what the evidence indicates Zimmerman was guilty of. That becomes the probability of Zimmerman telling the truth.

    • PhillyBoyRoy says:

      The worst part of Zimmerman, to me, was the “brutally beaten” narrative.

      Meanwhile, he was the one with the gun and applied nearly all the force in the so-called fight, and deadly force at that.

      Also, he had no injuries. Tough to do for a guy beaten within moments of death.

      • Annie Cabani says:

        Say what, PhillyBoy? Didn’t you see all those little pimple-looking things and the weird shapes of his knuckle head?

    I didn’t see this posted before. It’s a few days old. It’s the Brown family lawyer destroying officer Wilson’s “friend” third hand account. Besides pointing out the ridiculousness of the story itself, he brings up one of the main points we stressed in fogen’s case. That being, you cannot create your own “fear” then eliminate the fear that YOU created. I thought it was very well done.

    http://www.cnn.com/video/data/2.0/video/crime/2014/08/22/dnt-affluenza-father-arrested.ktvt.html.

    • Nef05 says:

      Sorry, the CNN video page had moved into the next video before I copied the link. The correct link is here:
      http://www.cnn.com/video/data/2.0/video/bestoftv/2014/08/18/exp-erin-intv-gray-brown-family-atty-missouri-teen-shooting.cnn.html

      • MKX says:

        I listened and measured about six seconds between the first and last shots.

        Remember that we have determined Brown fled 130 feet away from the car.

        The false { and that’s what I call her” } anonymous witness on behalf of the officer wants to believe that Brown was able to get father away from the car that 130 feet, make some sort of smart ass remark, and do a bull rush to be 130 feet away from the car in the span of six second.

        Those shots in that pattern would lead me to believe that Brown was shot at as he was fleeing and killed as he was turning around. That would fit the time line.

        And it fits eye witness testimony by those brave enough to show their face.

        Anyhow, I look forward to input by the most excellent science minds that do post here.

        • Disappointed says:

          It sounded like 6 shots then 5 shots. What I did not hear was a single shot. As in single shot fired inside the car. So was there really 3 sets of shots. The single then six and then the final 5?

          • MKX says:

            It could have been the first of the series of this six as Brown bolted from the car and the officer came out chasing and shooting. And shots fired as a the shooter is moving tend to be less accurate than the last four which were, in probability, fired as the officer took a static position. Speculation on my part, but, IMO, better than that “bull rush” bullshit.

  10. Nef05 says:

    The video, with the audio of the shots and an interview with the “audio witness'” attorney is up. The pause is clear and distinct, between shots 6&7.

    The Prof gave us a solid case for murder one a good ten days ago, with the limited information that was available at that time. IMO – this is the “smoking gun”.

    Just how brazen will this “no true bill” wanting prosecutor and his 75% white grand jury be?

  11. YQ says:

    Supposedly there is some new audio released about the shooting… It hasn’t been verified but the FBI is checking it.

    Pauses between gunshots… Could be huge.

    “The whole knows you now. “

  14. Malisha says:

    What I don’t get is this delight the T-party gets in broadcasting that Wilson was “badly beaten” before killing Brown. It makes it obvious that it was revenge that motivated him in a premeditated murder. Obviously it wasn’t self-defense because the beating was over by the time the killer RAN after Mike Brown with his weapon drawn. Pretty spry for a badly beaten guy, too, wasn’t he?

    • Bill Taylor says:

      other places i see many claiming any “assault” on an officer makes deadly force ok even a verbal assault, and even if the person runs away the officer can then execute them as a fleeing felon……..the rules of policing as are being explained are worse than i ever imagined.

      • Michelleo says:

        This theory only works for Blacks and other minorities.

      • MKX says:

        So I assume that all these people who claim that any “assault”, even verbal, makes deadly force ok are mad as hell that the government did not slaughter all those defenders of Bundy who had guns trained on law enforcement officer? :).

        or is it really???

  15. Sophia33 says:

    New audio showing that at least 11 shots fired. Someone was doing Skype and was recording it at the time of the shooting. CNN just broke the news.

    • Sophia33 says:

      The man who recorded the audio was talking to a friend at the time. He was telling the friend that she was “pretty and so fine”. He didn’t know he had it on audio. There are 6 shots fired and then a pause and then 5 more shots fired. So 11 shots total. What you do in the dark always comes to the light. That pause is very concerning.

  16. Bill Taylor says:

    hannity simply is not very bright………there are MORE witnesses than those already made public……..why cant people THINK??? the REASON this blew up so big and fast is because TOO MANY PEOPLE SAW IT HAPPEN………..for those supporting the officer to be correct requires the entire community be LYING about what they saw for NO reason it makes NO sense that anybody LIE about what they saw under oath……….i need to start my own “race” i can no longer identify with the majority of the “white” people………the HUMAN race is what i am part of a little bit of EVERYBODY mixed in my blood.

    • Bill Taylor says:

      the comment about hannity applies to others as well they are accepting the UNSPOKEN words of the officer as being the gospel truth while claiming the several eye witnesses are LYING…….that is NOT a very bright position to take while also whining nobody knows the facts…….the eyewitnesses DO KNOW the facts.

  17. PhillyBoyRoy says:

    I wonder if the Pro-Murder racists will be out “protesting” in support of Darren “The Murderer” Wilson on the day of Mike’s funeral.

    It’s strange how the law-n-order, authoritarian lovin’ Right suddenly accepts that a known killer is out free and they don’t seem to care. Meanwhile they get their panties in a wad when a black man on Death Row says he is wrongfully accused.

    To the right-wing racists:

    Shoplifting warrants exection, while shooting someone to death warrants no trial or investigation whatsoever.

    I just don’t understand how they can flip the switch from “he was a thug, he deserved it (for “stealing”)” to “poor Darren Wilson has to hide now, all because he committed a small boo boo”

    • MichelleO says:

      It’s a generational thing, PhillyBoy. In many homes, hate is a family value. Many of the senior members of such families can remember when they and other relatives used to drag black bodies from the back of their trucks or attended community picnics with a swinging black body hanging from the tree, as the center point of the festivities.

  18. Sophia33 says:

    Does anyone remember his case? These white teenagers broke into this man’s home repeatedly. He was CONVICTED of premeditated murder and I don’t remember the media talking about them not being angels. These teenagers were not called “thugs” and despite their drug addiction, they still got a conviction. Do I need to mention that they are white?

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/apr/29/prosecutor-man-who-shot-teens-intended-to-kill/

    • Disappointed says:

      Sophia come on you know out of control white teens are just being kids. It’s only an issue when it’s a black kid. Sarcasm alert. I find it weird Michael Brown has repeatedly been called a felon and thug. Is there a felony conviction that I’m unaware of? Or is it just the capital jaywalking case that he has been tried convicted and executed for?

      • PhillyBoyRoy says:

        To be fair, a lot of the right-wing sickos thought that this killer wS a hero, too.

        I don’t understand how they can be grossly authoritarian most of the time (War On Drugs, death penalty, making abortion a crime) except for when one of their own kills someone with a gun in near-psychotic fashion. When guys like Wafer or Wilson or Dunne kill, suddenly the right-wing whiteys are all “fuck the police! laws are for losers!” They’re a twisted bunch.

        “Those kids were committing the crime of trespassing, and being an authoritarian, I believe they are law-breaking scum and deserve to die; therefore, the killer who executed them in cold blood is a-ok in my book and if cops try to arrest him it’s total gubmint over-reach! Anarchy! No laws! (except for when you trespass, then you broke the law and you should die)”

        • Sophia33 says:

          Yes, but they weren’t calling them “thugs”.

        • MKX says:

          There is a subset of libertarians who, IMO, see the government as infringing on the rights of private property. So they will cheer the death by summary execution of any individual who is seen as a threat to property.

          Abortion?

          In their mind, that is giving a women the right to determine the life or death of a males property.

          Also keep in mind that the value of property requires a large supply of un-propertied wage slaves to have any value. So abortion, being a proletarian women’s right to deal with the economic circumstances, can also be seen as a two-fold threat to the value of an authoritarians property value:

          A: the labor supply is reduced, thus driving up wages

          B: the women, because she does not have a child to take care of, is less easily economically and sexually exploited

          So why are these libertarians so pro-liberty with respect to social issues?

          A guy with lots of property wants to enjoy himself.

          Just some thoughts that might explain why they fawn over Bundy. Bundy, although a criminal, is a property owner who was trying to exercise eminent domain over government land.

          The masses must come to the realization the a government elected via a one man equals one vote system is the check on being ruthlessly exploited by those with property.

          In a libertarian free paradise, all the beaches will be privately owned. So such a simple, but great, freedom that even a person of the most humble means can freely enjoy will be lost.

          I have wrote this before.

          In the eyes of many whites, a black person is a threat to property.

    • MichelleO says:

      Just as they view the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and corporations as a living thing—racism too, is seen as a living, protected, and sacred which Americans were ordained by God to practice.

    • ladystclaire says:

      @ Sophia33, you are spot on with your comment and, as a matter of fact, a lot of people thought he was wrong, for what he did, especially to the girl. The media was included in that thinking, as well. They never once, referred to them, as thugs!

      • MKX says:

        That is very damning.

        I believe that one of these teens had assaulted the man during a previous encounter. That is far, far more “thuggish” than any of the silly evidence used to “thuggify” Martin or Brown.

      And Still I Rise

      You may write me down in history
      With your bitter, twisted lies,
      You may tread me in the very dirt
      But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

      Does my sassiness upset you?
      Why are you beset with gloom?
      ‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
      Pumping in my living room.

      Just like moons and like suns,
      With the certainty of tides,
      Just like hopes springing high,
      Still I’ll rise.

      Did you want to see me broken?
      Bowed head and lowered eyes?
      Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
      Weakened by my soulful cries.

      Does my haughtiness offend you?
      Don’t you take it awful hard
      ‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
      Diggin’ in my own back yard.

      You may shoot me with your words,
      You may cut me with your eyes,
      You may kill me with your hatefulness,
      But still, like air, I’ll rise.

      Does my sexiness upset you?
      Does it come as a surprise
      That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
      At the meeting of my thighs?

      Out of the huts of history’s shame
      I rise
      Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
      I rise
      I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
      Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
      Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
      I rise
      Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
      I rise
      Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
      I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
      I rise
      I rise
      I rise.

    I never thought that my brother would be one of those police officers. He was supposed to be different because of me

    http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/aug/25/white-brother-police-shot-black-man

    • Malisha says:

      I looked up that case, of the white cop who shot the Black man “accidentally.” Mitch McDannald, then of Lebanon, TN. Interestingly, he gets off without charges in 2006 or 2007 for the killing of an unarmed African American man (described as an accident by the only two people there with guns — himself and his police partner/buddy) but then gets arrested in April 2012 for domestic violence. One presumes that his wife just didn’t understand that he hit her accidentally.

      As to the Black brother thinking his white brother’s habit of enjoying white acquaintances’ confusion when he introduced his brother to them was a sign that he “loved him” more than anyone, I see it as something a bit perverse.

      • so jaded says:

        I can relate to that. I have known this white cop as a acqaintance. He worked security at a retail store that I frequent weekly. We got to talking and enjoyed our conversations. He was always talking about his daughter and one day shows me a picture. She was a beautiful black girl. He calls her beautiful. He also has a black son in marines in Afghanistan. After almost 3 years of knowing him he tells me one day that black people make him sick’ and the reason more blacks are in jail is because at night blacks are commuting crimes. While whites r home with their families. He can’t figure out why I no longer speak to him. Oh, did I mentioned that he propositions me a week before he went racist o. Me. His 2nd wife who is white cut him off. So he though that he would do me the favor of letting me service him…

  25. Sophia33 says:

    I like what Benjamin Crump said about we will not accept 3/5 justice because Mike Brown was not 3/5 of a human being. He was a whole human being.

  26. Malisha says:

    Mike Brown was shot down like a runaway slave.
    The mindset of white cops in an African American community is just that: THEY are the enforcers on a big plantation. It’s terrible to see it that way, but it is terrible that THAT is the way it actually needs to BE seen.

    • Michelleo says:

      You are exactly correct. There is no need to be sorry and to apologize. This is the very system under which America was created and upon which it operates.

    • Kelly Payne says:

      Cops are killing unarmed people across thew country and not all of them are black. there seems to be problems in training in some cases and racism may be a factor in others.

      • roderick2012 says:

        “….there seems to be problems in training in some cases and racism may be a factor in others.”

        Some of these cops believe they are god.

        But more specifically many of these cops are military vets with PTSD and others are on PEDs especially steroids and testosterone.

  27. Michelleo says:

    I’m not going to lie: I thought about how Michael Brown finally realized that his premonition about a coming bloody death and his name being known worldwide, eventually came to him when he stopped and surrendered to Officer Darren Wilson. It hurt my heart to understand in that moment of his dying, that he finally understood what that premonition meant.

  28. Sophia33 says:

    Rest in peace…there are many who refuse to allow your death to be in vain.

  29. Bill Taylor says:

    may he rest in peace indeed, but i fear our liberty is also in the coffin with him, if this murder doesnt start a movement we all are in very deep trouble being in a society where innocent people can be gunned down by police for NO reason and then no charges even filed against the shooters.

    • Michelleo says:

      I know many don’t believe in a higher power; but I find strength in the fact that God was with Michael Brown in his final days as he surrendered himself to God in baptism, and God told him how he would be taken, but that his death would not be in vain. And so I take comfort that Michael Brown became an instrument of God and is now with Him.

      • Bill Taylor says:

        i will share with this group my belief in this area…. i do not support organized religion in any way it causes great harm to the human existence……BUT i also have been shown that we are eternal beings and indeed are part of something bigger than we can imagine in this existence……so a higher power YES i am certain such a thing exists, the nature and details of it i do not know…….
