    Black generations will suffer more due to the fact that this horrible person ignores the fact Michael Brown was a low life looser. Why don't u ever see Asians making criminals hero's? Cuz they dont play victim mentality.

    michael brown was proven to have assaulted the policeman by all the evidence and witnesses at the scene. He was not innocent, he caused his own death

    Seriously stop propping up criminals who act the fool then die as heroes they are not such, they add to the stereotype Causing more harm then good in the community.

    Stop acting like a thug and performing criminal acts and it's very likely you won't die at the hands of anybody much less the police.

    brown had just used his size to bully a store owner and steal merchandise. his situation was different because he unlike brown did not resist arrest nor did he attack the officer. In a shooting death police have to take time to gather forensic evidence it's a long process that's the reason for the delay. It had nothing to do with disrespect. It had no connection with lynching in the past, simply an absurd statement. The reason wilson was not charged was black witnesses told the truth about brown's attack. loss of black men, does he mean the slaughter of black men by other blacks. The statistics are horrific.

    Michael Brown robbed a store, was spotted by an officer and attacked the officer trying to get his service gun. “Hands up,don’t shoot” was a lie…never happened. Please don’t let the left/media choose false heroes.

    MB tried to tackle the cop who he had just punched. That's why he got shot. You are trying to create a story that will sell and get views for your film. As a Nigerian you have almost nothing in common with american black people, particularly this one.
