This is the incident report that the Ferguson police just produce. Now if you don’t know, this morning they FINALLY named the killer of Michael Brown as Darren Wilson. Along with naming Darren as the killer, the Ferguson police are now trying to link Michael Brown with a robbery that happened supposedly MOMENTS before. 
Michael was killed at 12:01 and this robbery was at 11:54. 
There are so many questions.
We’ve seen the surveillance photos they’ve produced that shows someone who looks like Michael being aggressive with a store owner over an apparent box of swishers. (If you don’t know, Swishers are cigar papers you can pick up for like…2 for .50.
They are saying that Officer Darren Wilson was responding to that robbery.
They are calling it an STRONG ARMED ROBBERY
 A strong armed robbery is using, involving, or threatening the use of physical force or violence to gain an objective:
Okay, got that bullshit out of the way
The dispatch tapes that were released mention NOTHING ABOUT A ROBBERY.
NOT ONE WORD
THE ONLY THING MENTIONED WAS A SHOOTING AND REQUEST FOR CROWD CONTROL.
THAT’S IT
So how did Officer Wilson FIND OUT about the robbery? 
They’ve now listed Dorian Johnson (THE ONLY OTHER EYEWITNESS WHO WAS THERE) as the second accomplice to the robbery. 
The same Dorian Johnson who has been trying (in vain) to talk with the Ferguson Police Department about Michael’s Death since LAST SATURDAY.
So this man who is this SECOND SUSPECT IN A ROBBERY CASE IS PLEADING WITH YOU AND IS ALL OVER NATIONAL NEWS AND YOU ARE REFUSING TO SEE HIM. BUT HE’S A SUSPECT IN A ROBBERY. OKAY
When Officer Wilson sees both Michael and Dorian his initial reaction was "GET THE FUCK ON THE SIDEWALK."
Not any kind of reaction dealing with them being robbery suspects. 
From some of the pictures (I’m not going to post them due to the family’s wishes) if you compare the footage from the store and the footage from Michael’s death, he’s swapped from Nike sandals to Sneakers. This red hat cannot be found (this is speculation).
If the reason Office Wilson approached them was because they were suspects in an robbery WHY DIDN’T HE CALL IT IN? WHY DIDN’T HE FOLLOW PROCEDURE? WHY WOULD HE ROLL UP ON ROBBERY SUSPECTS IN HIS VEHICLE? WHY DID IT TAKE 6 DAYS FOR THIS TO BE ANNOUNCED?
I implore you. IMPLORE YOU to take a look into the presented facts of the case. This is just an incident report, we do not have access to the investigative report. There has been no reports presented of Michael’s autopsy and this report is contradictory of the second eye witnesses report.
None of this makes sense. 
They are putting Michael on trial to dehumanize him, villify him, to make him less human to justify his murder.
And at the end of the day, LET’S JUST SAY MICHAEL DID DO THIS…is petty theft (it was like 5 swisher sweets they say. That’s a two dollars and fifty sense) IS HIS MURDER, HIS EXECUTION, THIS UNARMED SURRENDING TEENAGE BOY, justified by this?
NO.
It’s not.
This is murder. Don’t let them put Michael on trial for HIS DEATH.

Sometimes it takes someone who is the public eye dying tragically to bring light to an issue that many others deal with. Of course, I am talking about the incredible loss of Robin Williams. 

Depression is a motherfucker. It’s one of those things that can hit you out of nowhere. It is something that you can inherit from your parents. You may be someone who struggles with it on a regular basis for no real reason. Sometimes you can get yourself in a black hole so dark and deep that you think that there is no way out of it. Killing yourself seems easier than trying to find that light again.

I have been there myself. I am someone who predisposed to be depressed. Things are good right now. I am happy. I feel calm. But this darkness can sneak in at any time really, with no warning or reason. There have been times when I felt like I just didn’t want to go on anymore. I have written about it on here before in the past. I know that a gun tastes like it smells. I know how it feels to think that it will never get better. 

But I fought that. I pulled myself together and I work to keep myself together. It isn’t always easy, but it has been worth it.


The point is. No matter who you are. No matter where you are. No matter what you are dealing with. You are not alone. You need to know that there are people out there that care about you. It might not be who you can see or who you expect, but they are there. No matter how terrible things get, tomorrow is a chance for things to improve. 

Never feel like you don’t have options. Never feel like you are alone in this world. Keep your head up. Keep pushing forward. No one is perfect, don’t think that you need to be. Some of us are broken more than others, but everyone has cracks- it’s how the light gets in.

And if you feel like you are at the very end of your rope, before you do anything you can’t take back, make a call. By calling 1-800-273-TALK (8255) you’ll be connected to a skilled, trained counselor at a crisis center in your area,anytime 24/7.

RIP Robin Williams, you will be missed. My heart hurts for your family, and for the families for all the others who thought they didn’t have any other options. 

Hey guys. Haven’t done this in a while. But I appreciate you all. So here’s a chance to win a free metallic 8x12 print. Thanks for caring about what I do.
