Did you know that the Department of Justice, under President Barack Obama, cleared Ferguson, Missouri Officer Daren Wilson of any illegal activity in his shooting of Michael Brown 5 years ago?
Did you know that two of the Democrat party’s leading presidential candidates, Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris, are trashing that decision in their efforts to “prove” that police, in general, are racist against Black people, in general – which, they hope, will help them win the party’s nomination and beat Donald Trump in the general election?
Here, let me show you:
5 years ago Michael Brown was murdered by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. Michael was unarmed yet he was shot 6 times. I stand with activists and organizers who continue the fight for justice for Michael. We must confront systemic racism and police violence head on.
Michael Brown’s murder forever changed Ferguson and America. His tragic death sparked a desperately needed conversation and a nationwide movement. We must fight for stronger accountability and racial equity in our justice system.
