Breaking: Michael Brown Allegedly Involved in Second Degree Murder Case
IJReview ^ | 08/29/2014 | Kyle Becker

Posted on 08/29/2014 6:16:53 AM PDT by safetysign

Charles C. Johnson, the Editor-in-Chief of Got News and the investigator who debunked the Everytown shootings map, is suing the St. Louis County Court to release Ferguson shooting victim Michael Brown’s juvenile arrest records. As relayed by the website YoungCons.com, Johnson claims that he has “confirmed” Michael Brown was arrested in a case involving second-degree murder: record Johnson earlier reported on Twitter that he had two contacts in the St. Louis Police Department tell him that Michael Brown had a juvenile criminal record, thus prompting the lawsuit: record2 The reporter has been challenged on his rationale for seeking the juvenile records of Brown, and this is his response today: lawyers As reported by Ryan Gorman of AOL News, the citizen journalist wants the alleged arrest records released to the public: “To find out if those police officers are correct requires seeing Brown’s juvenile arrest record, which ought to be freely available given that he is dead and therefore has no right to privacy remaining,” insists Johnson.

“Knowing the truth about Brown’s past will help us gauge the credibility of his parents and family who have called him a ‘gentle giant.’”

Attorney Johnathon Burns, who is arguing the case, told KMOX that since the teen is deceased, his records are no longer sealed. The lawsuit follows below, via SCRIBD: Lawsuit to Release Michael Brown Juvenile Record

The lack of transparency involving the Michael Brown shooting was a major factor in the conflagration in Ferguson. After the initial reports of the Ferguson shooting arose, numerous major news media outlets jumped on the story to frame it as a racially prejudiced police officer shooting an unarmed “gentle giant” when he either had his hands up or was running away. When video surveillance photos of Michael Brown surfaced, the media questioned the police’s release of the information, which the Holder Justice Department wanted withheld from the public. The story of the strong-arm robbery accomplice Dorian Johnson that Brown was running away appears to be falsified with an initial autopsy failing to show gunshots in the back of Michael Brown. The police deparment’s version of the story, as well as that of Wilson’s friend, and an unidentified witness commenting on the case, appear to corroborate the story that Brown continued to come at the officer after being initially fired at. The background evidence of the strong-arm robbery and any prior criminal incidents speak to the potential state of mind of Michael Brown during the fatal confrontation. In any event, since the Ferguson rioting, the matter of Michael Brown’s death and how it occurred is a matter of public interest. The facts of the case must be divulged to the public, and that is the only way the second-guessing and the speculation will end. CBS News reported a hearing for the lawsuit is scheduled for September 3rd.

Michael Brown was not an innocent little 6-4, 300 pound juvenile. He had a serious criminal record.

.... for political reasons for Holder and Obama.

When a good portion of the public is screaming for lynching of the officer, it’s difficult to strike the balance between “transparency” and “tainting the jury pool.”

He was such a good boy. A gentle giant. Everybody loved him.

Except his victims.

They are smearing the loving, gentle giant again!

If anyone was hurt by Michael Brown, it was only because he hugged them too hard!

I believe Dorian Johnson will snitch out his crime partner, say Michael was going for Officer Wilson’s gun, to avoid charges related to the robbery and later fight & shooting incident in the street.

Now we all know that what you do as a ‘kid’ is just foolishness and goofing off. It doesn’t count. Hell, most black people don’t consider serving time in prison as ‘bad’. They hardly know anyone who hasn’t.

He could have been spotted eating a kitten, raping a nun on video, shooting holes in a row of convenience store clerks, all while snorting a mountain of cocaine and it wouldn’t matter as the media and the Dems would paint him as a saint much like Saint Skittles of Trayvon.
All we need now is an image of Saint Swisher Sweets of Brown with his trademark items of blessing, much like the image of Saint Skittle of Trayvon with his skittles and Snapple.

Don’t forget, if he was involved, or simply walking with, Mikey when he was killed, Johnson can be charged with felony murder.

I’d be willing to bet quite a lot that there were some sexual assaults on his juvi record.

Cigars weren’t the only thing that he felt entitled to, for sure.

I’m surprised that an enterprising journalist hasn’t talked to the Gentle Giants school mates or teachers. They may have information that would make news and prompt an IRS investigation against the journalist, their family, and their employer.

Obama and Holder will not let those records go out to the public..Look what Obama and his communist friends did to the IRS emails..Someone had better get their hands on these records before the criminal government does.

Probably.
But we won’t likely find out as that record will stay hidden in order to protect the manufactured image of Saint Swisher Sweets of Brown.

Impossible; the Democratic Party, its propaganda wing which calls itself the mainstream “media”, and its paid acolytes like the “reverends” Sharpton and Jackson keep telling us that this was a Second Crucifixion of one of the world’s most lovable and admirable people, who had a penchant for cigars but couldn’t afford them so he just lifted a few.

If he does, he can look forward to at least the prospect of a long dirt nap.

Another seminar caller (a whole bunch of new “first time listener, first time callers” many of them angry and black with a call list in their hands) was on a local program this week ranting that Michael Brown DID pay for the smokes at the shop and that the shop owner “never filed a report” (although he did).

As misguided as those who insist that nothing in the skirmish in Israel is being caused by Hamas lobbing missiles there.

Sadly true.
I expect the media to double down on the drumbeat of “Saint Mikey Brown” and hike it to a fever pitch, OR totally go silent on the entire thing and bury it if too much damning evidence comes out that they are lying.

why isn’t he impeached anyway by now.
Right after the black panthers at the voting station he should have been removed. Then he came out with his people comment. Then calling the terrorist incident as a work place violence, then not enforcing drug laws, then not defending marriage laws, then there is the illegals.

Holder has to be the most divisive AG in history, and yet the GOP are cowards.

No, he can’t be charged with felony murder if he was “simply walking with” Brown. The felony murder rule doesn’t work that way. Heck, even if he was involved in the original robbery, he probably can’t be charged with felony murder, since the resulting fight/shooting did not occur during the robbery or during the immediate flight therefrom.
