As the “Michael Brown was murdered by a racist cop” narrative collapses with each new revelation from the media, the strain is clearly getting to Brown’s family, who are now battling each other for the rights to cash in on his death and the “protest” movement that sprung out from it.
In one incident, Brown’s Mother, grandmother and auntie actually brawled on a street corner in Ferguson over “I Am Mike Brown” and “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” T-shirt sales, with Brown’s cousin having his skull fractured by a metal pipe.
The brawl was captured by surveillance cameras.
As FOX 2 reported:
(A)bout 8:15 pm in the parking lot of Red’s BBQ. It`s the corner of Canfield and West Florissant, just blocks from where Michael Brown was shot and killed….Police sources tell us Brown`s Grandmother, Pearlie Gordon, along with Brown`s Cousin Tony Petty, were selling t-shirts and other Michael Brown merchandise.
A police report describes a car pulling up and several people getting out. One of those people, was reported to be Michael Brown`s Mom, Lesley McSpadden. A witness described McSpadden yelling ‘You can`t sell this s%$&” One of the relatives, who was selling, reportedly demanded McSpadden show a document proving she had a patent.
The police report says that`s when an unidentified person with McSpadden assaulted Petty so violently that it resulted in a 911 call. A witness tells Fox 2 that the weapon was a metal pipe or pole. The suspect reportedly struck Petty in the face. Medics then took him to Christian Northeast Hospital with a reported partial skull fracture. The witness said the assault suspect grabbed merchandise and a box of cash believed to contain about $1,400.
It appears surveillance cameras could have captured the fight and be part of police evidence. Police report no arrests at this time.
It is truly sad that this entire affair is now resulting in Brown’s own family resorting to violence against each other. But this is what happens when an exploitative media and race-baiting hucksters like Al Sharpton and Eric Holder take a simple cop-assailant shooting and turn it into a fake national outrage over race.
After Trayvon Martin’s death two years ago, his mother Sabrina Fulton came under great criticism for trademarking slogans related to his death to sell merchandise.
Now that the media has finally been shown the truth about Michael Brown’s death and packed up their circus tents and left Ferguson, we hope the Brown family can finally mourn him and move on.
