I wrote a quick thought on twitter before coming here to write, but I think it sums up the point of this post… My tweet was nothing mind blowing, just straight to the sad, horrible truth. And I said:

It is heartbreaking that yet another unarmed, young Black male, Michael Brown, an innocent teen with a promising future, was murdered by a police officer who not only has his life but his freedom as well.
Darren Wilson, a sick psychopath in my books, claimed Michael Brown as having a “crazy intent” to kill him. The problem arises here; Michael had no such goal. The media has hyped up any American it can on these lies, though. Watching Fox News they fuel the fire, making this innocent, unarmed teen into an evil wanna be murderer. The part that hurts the most is that so many Americans are dumb enough to believe this and other lies the For-Profit, government run media shares. Never do they do independent research. It’s all about what the good ol’ TV says.
The cop, as always, walked away; no punishment despite the witnesses and evidence. “I don’t have a gun, stop shooting.” … Michael Brown’s last words. How haunting… May his soul find peace on his next journey.
As tragic as this is, while this case has been going on, other teens and adults have been harassed and/or murdered by police. This is nothing new, and it will be nothing old if we don’t demand change.
Let’s take a quick look back…
