You know I’ve had about enough of Michael Brown’s parents. I know they are grieving and what not, but they are going too far in their desire to prosecute Darren Wilson for the death of their son. After all, the grand jury is still hearing evidence and hasn’t released a verdict yet on that evidence.
Michael Brown’s parents are not reasonable people nor have they surrounded themselves with reasonable people. They claim they want justice yet what they really want is to believe that their son couldn’t be the thug that led him to attack an officer and get killed. And if it means prosecuting Darren Wilson and sending him to jail to keep that dream alive, that’s what they’ll do.
If they really wanted justice they would wait like the rest of us to hear what the grand jury has to say instead of calling Officer Wilson an ‘executioner’ on CNN.
KMOV – Lesley McSpadden and Michael Brown Sr. spoke to the United Nations Committee Against Torture—which also works against cruel or degrading treatment or punishment by government authorities.
“We need the world to know what’s going on in Ferguson and we need justice,” McSpadden told CNN in Geneva, Switzerland.
“We need answers and we need action. And we have to bring it to the U.N. so they can expose it to the rest of the world, what’s going on in small town Ferguson.”
Accounts differ as to what led to the August shooting of Brown, an unarmed black 18-year-old, by a white police officer.
While their testimony to the committee took place behind closed doors, the delegation that organized their trip said the couple would read from a statement submitted by the Brown family and organizations called HandsUpUnited, the Organization for Black Struggle, and Missourians.
The document says Brown’s killing and force used by police officers during protests that followed the killing “represent violations of the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.”
It requests that the U.N. panel recommend the immediate arrest of Officer Darren Wilson, who killed Brown, as well as an end to “racial profiling and racially-biased police harassment across the jurisdictions surrounding Ferguson.”
