Flaming Lib Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon claims Ferguson police attempted to besmirch Michael Brown by releasing video of him stealing


This is how Liberal minds think–in a warped way. Michael Brown didn’t besmirch his own character by strong arm stealing a box of cigars from a Ferguson convenience store.

His family hasn’t denied it was him in the video. Al Sharpton hasn’t denied it either. But, somehow releasing the video and destroying the media’s angelic portrait of an innocent teenager is the problem.

 

I get it now!

 

NY Daily News reports Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon on Sunday accused law enforcement in the tense St. Louis suburb of Ferguson of trying to “besmirch” Michael Brown when they linked the unarmed 18-year-old shot dead by police last weekend to a robbery in the area.

 

“It had an incendiary effect,” the Democratic governor said on CBS show “Face the Nation” of Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson’s decision on Friday to release a video that allegedly showed Brown, just before he was fatally shot by police, stealing a box of cigars from a nearby convenience store.

 

“When you release picture and you clearly are attempting to besmirch a victim of a shooting, shot down in his own street, a young man and at the same time you’re releasing information to try to make it, to tarnish him, then properly, there was a lot of folks that were concerned about that,” Nixon explained, adding that his office was not made aware of the decision to release the video. “I do think it flamed it back up and has caused us to have to deal with some of that.”

Gimmie a break! If the video never existed the troublesome element in Ferguson still would’ve rioted just like they did when they ignored the governors own curfew. Who’s fooling who?
