UPDATE: And for comparison purposes, the Michael Brown that we all know is Michael Brown:
Michael Brown’s virtue took a big hit today as Ferguson, MO police released additional information.
First off, the officer involved was a six-year veteran. His name is out there, but we don’t feel a need to reprint it. His family is undoubtedly been moved for their own safety. Hopefully a SWAT team is inside ready to arrest anyone who tries to shoot up the officer’s residence.
The next piece of the puzzle is a police report implicating Michael Brown as the suspect in a strong-arm robbery of a convenience store minutes before he was stopped by a police officer.
And there’s more:
Turns out suspect Michael Brown might well have been nothing more than a street thug living the thug lifestyle, not the guy who was going to grow up and cure cancer after college.
Oh yeah, and there’s photos going around showing him flashing gang signs too.
