So let me get this straight: the Ferguson PD took the time to write an overly detailed, 18 page police report for the ALLEGED petty theft of $49 dollars worth of cigars, but they didn’t even fill out an incident report for Darren Wilson shooting Mike Brown dead? A two page (mostly blank) report for a shooting death, and an 18 page report for cigars??? The Ferguson PD didn’t cover Mike Brown’s body, they left Mike Brown’s body out on the street for nearly four hours, they didn’t write a police report at the scene, they immediately launched a campaign to smear Mike Brown posthumously…does any of that sound even remotely legit?
2. when they finally got around to filling out the police report, the ONLY info they completed was the name of the victim, the shooter, and the date they filled out the “report”. that’s it. that’s all
3. Missouri has a open “sunshine law” that requires them to make nearly any police reports publicly available immediately, so for over ten days they violated that law too
Ferguson is a perfect example of a sundown town, and from beating up innocent Black drivers, to repeatedly tear gassing and threatening unarmed protesters to routinely racially profiling and profiting off of Black drivers, Ferguson is showing over and over just how little they truly value Black lives
If…IF there’s even just one honest cop in the Ferguson PD, now is the time to step up
