The local branch of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) has vowed to help the officer accused in the shooting of unarmed teen Michael Brown. The officer’s name has finally been released by Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson as Darren Wilson, a six-year veteran of the department. The fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown, as he was walking home from a convenience store, has ignited several days of protests.
The KKK has announced their commitment to financially support Wilson. While for some this is shocking, others view this as just another attempt for the white hooded trolls to get the attention they crave. The South Carolina-based New Empire Knights of the KKK said its Missouri chapter is raising money for the white police officer who shot and killed the African-American teen who they have called a “thug.”
We are setting up a reward/fund for the police officer who shot this thug. He is a hero! We need more white cops who are anti-Zog and willing to put Jewish controlled black thugs in their place. Most cops are cowards and do nothing while 90% of interracial crime is black (and non-white) on white.
St. Louis has long been one of the nation’s most segregated metropolitan areas where there remains a high wall between black and white residents. There is a history of racial segregation, economic inequality and domineering law enforcement which has compounded to result in much of the tension which has exploded on the streets. The FBI has launched an investigation, but federal authorities will also monitor an investigation being carried out by local police.
Ferguson is a small, predominantly African-American city just outside St. Louis. The town was first formed in the 19th century as a railroad stop before becoming incorporated as a city in 1894. About 70 percent of St. Louis County’s one million residents are white and out of the nearly 21,000 residents of Ferguson, more than two-thirds are black.
After Brown, who recently graduated high school and was headed to Vatterott College, was shot a series of protests and vigils have ensued. On Saturday after the killing there was an immediate outcry from the community; witness said some people were even chanting, “Kill the police.” People protested Saturday and Sunday, with large crowds of protesters and police facing off multiple times since the shooting.
The parents of the deceased teen spoke briefly on Monday night at a news conference where his mother, Lesley McSpadden, appeared very emotional and heartbroken by her son’s unfortunate demise. She tearfully said she wishes she could have been there to help him. Brown’s father, Michael Brown Sr. said his son was silly and fun, always ready to make people laugh.
He was a good boy who did not deserve none of this. We need justice for our son.
The circumstances surrounding the shooting appear to be somewhat unclear. According to law enforcement, the shooting followed an encounter involving a police officer, Brown and another person Saturday afternoon, but additional confirmed details are scarce.
Spokesman for the St. Louis County Police Department, Brian Schellman, said about 300 officers were on the scene. Two officers sustained minor injuries while 32 people were arrested and could face charges of burglary, larceny and assault. Groups and elected officials have joined the conversation calling for a full and open investigation. Missouri State Senator Jamilah Nasheed has called for Officer Darren Wilson who shot and killed Brown to be fired and indicted.
The one thing the racially charged and besieged city of Ferguson does not need added to the combustible mix of snarling police dogs, rubber bullets and clouds of tear gas that have filled its streets for days is the Ku Klux Klan. The Klan, however, refusing to pass on an opportunity to spread fear and hate has joined the fury and has vowed to help the officer accused in the shooting of unarmed teen Michael Brown.
