Hi, I'm not from USA, and I'd like to know what's Ferguson about, what's happening. Thank you.
Okay so Michael Brown, 17/18 African American was shot down my Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri, August 9th, 2014.
He was supposedly shot down 8-10 times (the 2nd autopsy (the Brown family’s own)) showed at least 6 bullet wounds. 2 of the shots were fired in the head. 4 on his left side. A gun shot wound to the top of the head and the exit wound at the neck suggests that Michael Brown was at a low position (He is over 6 feet tall and had to be on his knees or something to get that positioning and angle.) After the first shot was fired, Michael and his friend Dorian ran, then after being shot, Michael ended up on his knees, hands up, shouting, “I don’t have a gun; don’t shoot!”
Darren Wilson is now on paid leave and “in assylum” in another state.
The next day, people began peacefully protesting, but things went awry when the Ferguson Police Department wouldn’t have it.
So far, the Ferguson Police Department has brought out tanks, K9 units, SWAT, the National Guard, tear gas, smoke grenades, rubber and wooden bullets, LRAD (a siren that can cause permanent hearing loss), riot gear, military-grade armor, and more. Some say that the police are more heavily armed than soldiers in Iraq. 123 Mind you, all this money could be spent on something to actually AID Ferguson, instead of “defending” it.
The police have also gone to great lengths to cover up the truth. After Michael Brown was gunned down, they refused to file the incident report of Michael Brown’s death. They have falsified the incident report of Michael Brown’s alleged robbery. They have made Michael Brown out to be a criminal by saying he robbed the liquor store he was coming from, and by saying he was violent when approached by Darren Wilson. Darren Wilson didn’t even know Michael Brown was a suspect for the robbery when he gunned him down. They have changed the story many times including, saying Michael Brown stole candy from the liquor store to stealing cigars.
