Update: Sun. Aug 10, 9:00 PM EST: Police claim that Brown struggled for the officer’s gun


It is estimated that over 200 people have gathered again Sunday evening for a vigil at the site of the alleged police shooting to death of unarmed Mike Brown, as he was on his knees with his hands up.



Police claimed in a press meeting Sunday morning  that the fatal shooting of unarmed black youth, Michael Brown Saturday by a police officer in a St. Louis suburb came after a struggle for the officer’s gun, according to the New York Times.



The police officials’ statements Sunday has been met with outrage and skepticism in the largely African-American community.



One Twitter user says police shot the corpse twice.




The killing of the youth, Michael Brown, 18, ignited protests Saturday and Sunday in Ferguson, Mo., a working-class suburb of about 20,000 residents. Hundreds of people gathered at the scene of the police shooting to question the police and light candles for Mr. Brown, who was planning to begin college classes on Monday.



Mr. Brown’s stepfather, Louis Head, held a cardboard sign that said, “Ferguson police just executed my unarmed son.”



“The genesis of this was a physical confrontation,” Chief Belmar told reporters.


Elected officials and advocacy groups, however, have called for a full investigation and questioned the tactics of the police, who acknowledged that Mr. Brown had been unarmed.



Antonio French, a city councilman in St. Louis, was at the scene of the protests Sunday and said over 100 people had gathered, mostly silently standing in groups, some leaving behind teddy bears and balloons to memorialize Mike Brown.



Mr. French said he was unsatisfied with the police department’s explanation of the shooting.



“I find it hard to believe,” he said, adding that he was disappointed with the police response, that further distressed Ferguson residents, members of Mr. Brown’s family and Anonymous.



Mike Brown Ferguson Police Youth Slaying: Anonymous ‘Draws Line In Sand’, ‘Expect Us’



Anonymous has sent a media release regarding the recent police shooting to death of a youth in Ferguson, Mo., warning police and urging the town citizens to help prepare for larger protests.



An eyewitness, Phenix Daniels, who lives across the street from where the alleged murder occurred, said police shot Mike Brown, 17, “at least ten times.” Daniels posted on Facebook a video of the scene shortly after the alleged murder.



“The entire global collective of Anonymous is outraged at this cold blooded murder of a young teen. Not a week goes by that some young person, usually of minority ethnicity – is slaughtered by murderous police in the USA,” the Anonymous statement reads.


Dupré reported earlier on Sunday:


“This is the second time in a week that an officer shot dead a black youth.. sending hundreds into the streets to protest and many more expressing their outrage on Twitter in a #Ferguson hashtag campaign. Earlier this week, a white police officer killed an unarmed black youth in an Ohio Walmart.



Multiple witnesses say Michael (Mike) Brown, 18, had no weapon on him, had his hands up in the air, but was shot by authorities multiple times.



Brown was to start college classes Monday.

Anonymous Full Statement



A little over 24 hours ago in Ferguson, Missouri – USA the Ferguson Police Department shot an un-armed teen 6 times and killed him. His body was left to lie in a pool of blood in the sweltering heat for hours while the police militarized the area against protesters and attempted to concoct a reasonable story as to why they snatched this innocent students life for no reason. The St. Louis County Sheriff Department even sealed the roads leading to Ferguson in a vain attempt to prevent protesters from reaching the city.  His name was Mike Brown, he was 17 – and he would have started college next week. Instead, his family is struggling to come up with funeral costs.



The entire global collective of Anonymous is outraged at this cold blooded murder of a young teen. Not a week goes by that some young person, usually of minority ethnicity – is slaughtered by murderous police in the USA. For this reason Anonymous will not be satisfied this time, as we have in the past – with simply obtaining justice for this young man and his family.



Anonymous demands that the Congressional Representatives and Senators from Missouri introduce legislation entitled “Mike Brown’s Law” that will set strict national standards for police conduct in the USA. We further demand that this new law include specific language to grant the victims of police violence the same rights and prerogatives that are already enjoyed nationwide by the victims of other violent criminals. The Equal Protection clause of the US Constitution demands nothing less.



To the good people of Ferguson, take heart – and take your streets. You are not alone, we will support you in every way possible. Occupy every square inch of your city. Open your homes and help in any way you can the protesters who will come to your city from every part of Missouri and the USA. Businesses and householders that are near protest rallies, open your WiFi routers so that live streamers and other independent journalists can use the Internet connections. Feed each other, keep each other safe – and stay in the streets until we are totally victorious in all our demands.



To the Ferguson Police Department and any other jurisdictions who are deployed to the protests: we are watching you very closely. If you abuse, harass – or harm in any way the protesters in Ferguson we will take every web based asset of your departments and governments off line. That is not a threat, it is a promise. If you attack the protesters, we will attack every server and computer you have. We will dox and release the personal information on every single member of the Ferguson Police Department, as well as any other jurisdiction that participates in the abuse. We will seize all your databases and E-Mail spools and dump them on the Internet. This is your only warning.



The time has come for more than simple justice for these atrocities. The time has come to draw a line in the sand and say “no more dead kids”, no more police killings and beatings. Anonymous is drawing a line in the sand, and that line runs right down the middle of Main Street Ferguson, Missouri. Police impunity ends with the barbaric death of Mike Brown.

      I’m always happy to see people standing up to The Man..

      However, Eye for an Eye, Blood for Blood is the only real justice in this world.

    • Beaver Hunter

      I have 3 points to make:

      1.) The “MAN” who controls it all seems to be SATAN and his Bankers and not the police. The Cops just need to be educated who is controlling their strings and remind them of their sworn duty to uphold the Constitution of 1776, not 1880. Could it be they are being subliminally brainwashed to act more aggressive then they would normally behave? Did I read a report that the police radios themselves are inducing a signal to their brain that is messing with their common sense and rational reasoning abilities. Most police join because they really care about the community. Only a few are psychotic.

      2.) I thought this was supposed to be a “peaceful” mourning event. If so what is it about the looting? Is this necessary? If we are going change for the better we all should act and be above reproach. We cannot justify striking back if necessary if we are all acting like animals too. We need to coral the idiots and thieves and be wary of “plants (blackwater?)” that the GOV would use to justify them hauling the whole town to a detention center on trumped up charges. We have to conduct ourselves as if we are rational adults.

      3.) Why would “Anonymous” want a new Federal Law called the “Mike Brown’s Law” when it should be a State initiative ONLY! I thought we all knew the CONSTITUTION has been compromised since 1880 and is not how our country is run anymore. We should be distancing our states from the Federal Government, Federal Reserve and IRS individually and stop using the Feds money that pays for all this new “war” equipment the Police around the nation is receiving. POLICE do not need to fear the people if they know too we are trying to enlighten people that the BANKERS run the government and have used us all these years for their own personal gain. Imagine if we all pushed back and said enough of this crap and began arresting the real criminals in our congress, senate, wall street and bankers. Take their wealth they have stolen from us all these years in Federal taxes every two weeks and give it back to the workers who earned it.

      Americans do NOT want war. They do. We need to resist their pressure on us and work together. It can work but only if we all wake up.

      Then again I am dreaming again.Wake me up when its over.

      • Anonymous

        Excellent points but nothing is going to change. The federal government has militarized most of the local police departments and the LEOs are being trained not to serve and protect but to use brutality and lethal force. The police will keep on beating and killing Americans without just cause because they can get away with it.

        • trashman

          that is why Anonymous is wanting too do somethign about it!! Look we can all whine and cry, about how the cival liberties have been taken away from us, but the cold hard facts is this: The Police HAVE been taken over, and it will take something new!!! The Constitution has been shredded so dont count on using it in your defense! It will take something new like the Mike Brown law too make a difference. I truly believe that Annonymous will carry through with their threats, so if i was a police officer their i wold walk a fine line.
          If people TRULT want too defeat the N.W.O. then this is what u need to do. STOP buying Mc-Donalds- Burger King- KFC- etc etc. Those companies are conglomerates owned bythe biggest ones part of the NWO!! Instead BUY Local goods . local restaurants, Mom and Pop Hardware stores, EVEN though that means paying more. I know our budgets are extremely tight but if we DONT start now THEIR wont be a tomorrow!! Also Buy American stop supporting HUGE firms who are making trillions off the backs of Babies in China!!!!!!!! Enough is Enough!!!!! Either START showing we are serious about giving up Big-Macs or Stop whinning!! BTW im not a Hypocrite Ive only had 1 and i mean 1 item from Mc-Donalds in over 5 years, yes it was a Big-Mac and i wanted too try it after not eating a big mac for over 3 years prior too that!!! After i ate it i felt kinda sick in my stomache.. Then it reminded me why i dont eat fast food anymore. I only eat out of local storesnow and restarants. Please dont incite violence their in St Louis area because that is what they want!! When violance starts then they can do it over and over again, while sitting in their SWAT trucks!! Im ready too move from the USA! if only for the extreme violance coming soon too a neighborhood too you.

          Most of these PIGS have something in common… they were combat troops off in some foreign land and committed these acts DAILY on the population they were “ordered” to torture!
          :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

          Of course if the little Gaytheists of Anonymous actually did ANYTHING about who else the American government they voted in were butchering around the world and not the occasional criminal who likely voted for them themselves their teachers would presumably give them poorer grades in college than they are already getting. :neutral:

    • Don't be hating!

      KKK cops who never get fired and speak lies on their favor.

    • barebones

      If Anonymous pulls this off, it will demonstrate just how impotent these “invincibles” are. Their blue wall of protection will effectively be erased!

      What’s next?

    • stonehillady

      Funny, thou not at all, all the new training of Police Officers, swat teams, and others all compliments of the Israeli Government……! Just like a Palestinian, Mike Brown was to Police.

      • Deborah Dupre

        Startling reality, stonehillady. Wonder how people like you see the bigger picture as well as you do.

    • Bob DD

      Time to become civilized. Don’t live up to your image. Caucasians are killed by your race everyday, especially with “The Knockout Game,” and there isn’t rioting. The FBI will come to a conclusion. Let then do their work before you act out.
