It’s been over three years since Officer Darren Wilson was cleared of any wrongdoing by Barack Obama’s Justice Department over the death of Michael Brown, a gigantic black man who Wilson shot dead in self-defense after he attacked the officer when he was confronted about a robbery he had just committed.
The grand jury confirmed that everything that Wilson said in his 2014 interview with George Stephanopoulos was true.
Brown started punching Wilson in the face and attempted to grab his gun from him, and Wilson shot him while that was happening.
Everyone is also aware of the footage of Brown robbing and then manhandling a small Pakistani man, which is what Wilson was responding to.
Apparently, several 2020 Democrats assume the population has forgotten about all this, so they decided to use the fifth anniversary of Brown’s death, which was on Friday, to attack white people and officer Darren Wilson specifically.
Both Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris accused Wilson of murder.
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.

This is actual libel, and Darren Wilson should sue both of them. These women are both lawyers. They know that it is libelous to accuse someone who has been cleared of potential murder charges of being a murderer. And yet they’ve done it anyway.
What are they thinking?
I know Darren Wilson has been through a lot and is presumably very beaten down as a person, but surely there is at least some chance that he will respond with legal action to such high profile people knowingly falsely accusing him of murder.
The other candidates were more careful, and didn’t use the word “murder.”
Michael Brown should be alive today. Five years after his death, we must finally end police violence against people of color. pic.twitter.com/EWvLcdyla5

5 years ago, a Ferguson police officer killed Michael Brown, an unarmed teenager.
He shot him 6 times.
Nothing will bring Michael back, but we can't stop fighting the injustice done to his family and so many others—and until we do better, we're failing them.

Cory Booker however accused Wilson of being a “violent racist,” which is also libelous, as there is no evidence that Officer Wilson is either of those things.
5 years ago, Michael Brown was killed by a police officer. His body lay on the street for hours before he was treated with humanity. I have been thinking all day about Mike and his family, and my prayers are with them.

Until Black people are no longer disproportionately killed by police, we should lift the voices of those like the protestors who stand up for justice—and speak out ourselves for a more fair criminal justice system that holds police accountable. To be silent is to be complicit.

It’s just… genuinely incredible, all of this.
When we used to talk about “lying politicians,” it was generally them lying about their own behavior, or telling lies about the things they’re going to do. Politicians choosing to lie about events that don’t even have anything to do with them is a new phenomenon.
And to be able to tell lies this bold is very scary.
Black Lives Matter pretty much died when they started mandating that cops wear body cameras. This showed that when cops shoot black people, they don’t do it because they’re driven by wild-eyed hatred for the color of the skin, but rather because the blacks are attacking them.
But I guess 2020 Democrats want to bring this movement back, to get the blacks all riled up.
Blacks are only useful when they’re riled. Otherwise they’re just hanging out doing drugs and having sex.
