Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren yesterday tweeted: “5 years ago Michael Brown was murdered by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. Michael was unarmed yet he was shot 6 times. I stand with activists and organizers who continue the fight for justice for Michael. We must confront systemic racism and police violence head on.” This is an outright lie, one day after Warren complained of the dangers of rhetoric. Michael Brown was not murdered. Michael Brown was shot by officer Darren Wilson in an act of self-defense. This is why the grand jury declined to indict Wilson for murder or manslaughter, and it was also the conclusion of the Obama administration’s Department of Justice. “Every police officer in America should be offended by Sen. Warren’s ill-informed, inflammatory tweet today,” Jeff Roorda of the St. Louis Police Officers Association told me via email. “Holding a would-be cop killer out as some sort of victim or worse yet, a hero, does no justice to the truth or to reconciliation. Her careless words disqualify her from fitness to serve impartially as commander-in-chief.” “I was a Democratic Missouri State Representative for 8 years,” Roorda also wrote. “But, I’m sick of uninformed members of my party attacking cops. It’s just wrong.” Attempts to contact Senator Warren’s campaign by phone and email were not returned.
You have a Dem with bona fide Dem creds call out Elizabeth Warren on her brazen, self-serving, anti-cop, hypocritical lie…and her office is running the other direction when asked for comment. Gee.. What a shocker, lol. Not! Don’t expect this story anywhere in the dominantly liberal mainstream media.. Everything about the incident 5 years ago in Ferguson, MO (near my hometown of St. Louis), was a lie. Remember, “Hands up, don’t shoot?” That was a lie. It never happened. According to forensics and witness testimony, it never ever happened. And, the dominantly liberal mainstream media, the Obama Administration, Eric Holder and so on made it about racism, white cop killing unarmed black victim and on and on. ALL of it was a lie. For those with memory problems.. A large, young, black male (Michael Brown) went into a convenience store, bullied the clerk and stole some cigars. At the time, the liberal media called him a “gentle giant.” The incident at the convenience store was caught on security cameras and we ALL saw played over and over again. In spite of that, that “gentle giant” then walked out…and walked right down a main thoroughfare in Ferguson, a municipality in north St. Louis County. The convenience store called 911 to report the burglary, and Officer Darren Wilson, a decorated officer, was just out on patrol saw Michael Brown waking down the middle of the street..and asked him to get out of the middle of the road. Then, the report came through on his radio and he identified the man as the robbery suspect (“big black male carrying a box of cigars”). So, he pulled up to Michael. That’s when it all went south. According to witnesses, Officer Wilson’s personal account, and MULTIPLE autopsies by multiple coroners (yeah, there were actually multiple coroners), Michael Brown, who later we find out also had marijuana in his system (remember the law-abiding “gentle giant” narrative?), attacked Officer Wilson and was MUCH bigger than the officer, and went for his sidearm. During the struggle, Officer Wilson who had already been beat by Brown (and the pics taken of the officer after the incident showed he was beat up badly), fearing for his life, shot and killed Brown. The end. And according to multiple witnesses, multiple autopsies, the officer’s testimony, and forensics, the officer did everything proper and by the book. It was pure self-defense. In fact, had the suspect been white, that’s exactly where the story would have ended and it wouldn’t have made national news. To be clear, race had NOTHING to do with the event, until the rabid race hustlers/oportunists like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, then Pres. Obama, then AG Eric Brown, the NAACP, the agenda-driven liberal media, and on and on made it into a race issue…which ultimately resulted in some rioting. Elizabeth Warren, and the rest of the Dems seeking the 2020 Dem Presidential nomination for their party, are using every minute they have in front of a camera to shamelessly play some type of race card to further the narrative that President Trump is a racist and white supremacist. Of course there is no evidence to substantiate that whatsoever. But, it’s the lie they’re repeating over and over… And, as evidenced here, Elizabeth Warren is even stooping so low as to referring to an incident that happened YEARS before Trump even declared his presidential aspirations. But, of course, Trump is somehow responsible for Ferguson as well.. Typical..
