I am just so sick and tired of smoking weed, theft, and so on being used to deem dead black kids “thugs” as if white kids don’t steal as if white kids don’t smoke weed.
I did and was friends with tons of kids that smoked weed, stole cigarettes, painted graffiti, started fires on private property, and none of us were killed by cops. Saying Michael Brown was a suspect in the theft of a box of cigars as justification for deadly force is complete bullshit. This kid is innocent, and can’t be proven guilty because he is dead.
Cops aren’t judges. Cops aren’t a jury, but they are handing out death sentences.
