Friday marks the fifth anniversary of the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. An unarmed black teenager, he was shot and killed by Police Officer Darren Wilson, who said Brown attacked him. A grand jury later chose not to indict Wilson. Brown's father, Michael Brown Sr., tells CBS News' Jeff Pegues he wants the case re-opened. Brown told Pegues he's not as angry as he once was, but it's going to be hard to revisit that moment five years ago today when he found out his son was gone. When asked what he recalls most vividly from that day

Comments:

Absentee father wasn't around when he was needed. Should have taught the Genteel Giant not to rob a convenience store.

Of course he does, goaded on by liberal activists that want to replay all the lies, all of the chaos, and all the 'cops are racist' chants from 5 years ago.

Don't know how they do things in MO, but when I was on the Grand Jury in NM, evidence presented that resulted in a finding of No Bill could never be heard again. If Missouri has a similar rule, reopening the case would be pointless.

These people need to choose their heroes more carefully. This guy steals from a convenience store, gets questioned about it by a cop, beats up the cop, then tries to take his gun. Think maybe that's a good way to get hurt? Maybe killed?

The blood money must have dried up already. Michael's mama probably saved a ton of money by not having to feed him for the past five years, the kid was an absolute hippo. Just watch how quickly CNN picks this up and runs with it.

Michael Brown's father had his chances - he could have taught Michael not to steal cigars, not to strong-arm rob the store manager, not to jaywalk, not to resist arrest, not to try to kill a cop with his own gun, and not to attack an armed police officer. If he had taught him any one of those things, Michael would still be alive today. Instead he abandoned young Michael to the grandmother. Now, the father is running low on money and attention and wants to get back on that gravy train. Ain't gonna work.

Given my own personal experience, I don't think there is any black person willing to blame another black person for anything. It's like Obola's motto: If you're black, I got yo back. The prisons are full of innocent people according to locals.

This is a bit confusing. Michael Brown, Sr. was a sperm donor, more or less, and Michael's mother had a loudmouthed boyfriend, himself a gang member, who was presented as the mother's husband. I would find it interesting to ask Sr. if he believed that his son reached into the police car and tried to steal the police officer's pistol, shooting himself in the hand, leaving his blood and dna inside of the police car. I would ask him if he believed the black man, a former prisoner with a felony record, was telling the truth when the man testified n support of the police officer's statement. (that witness, who said that as a former felon, he had no love for the police, but that the lies about the incident were too much for him to tolerate.) Finally, the IRS should audit the Sr.s foundation.

Biden Says He Was Vice President

Joe Biden said he was vice president when the deadly high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, took place. Except, it happened in 2018, more than a year after he left office -- the latest gaffe by the Democratic presidential front-runner. Biden told reporters in Iowa on Saturday that “those kids in Parkland came up to see me when I was vice president.” But when they visited Capitol Hill to talk with members of Congress, lawmakers were “basically cowering, not wanting to see them. They did not want to face it on camera.” The former vice president was making a point

DES MOINES —As Democrats descend on Iowa to kick off a six-month sprint to the first primary vote, party activists are increasingly anxious that former vice president Joe Biden, the consistent polling leader, has not disposed of persistent questions about whether he is well-equipped to take on President Trump. Adding to the Democrats’ nervousness is that a clear alternative has yet to emerge. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) is rising in the polls and has a high-quality campaign organization, but doubts linger in some quarters about the appeal of her left-leaning policies in a general election. Sens. Kamala D. Harris (Calif.)

A gurney carrying a man who looked like Epstein was wheeled out of the Manhattan Correctional Center around 7:30 a.m. The ambulance went to New York Downtown Hospital. The incident comes two weeks after Epstein, 66, was placed on suicide watch after he was found nearly unconscious in his cell with injuries to his neck. The multimillionaire financier is being held without bail pending trial on child sex-trafficking charges.

Silicon Valley doesn't consider patriotism when making decisions, billionaire venture capitalist Peter Thiel told "Fox & Friends" Friday morning. Instead, the big tech companies focus primarily on what will benefit themselves, Thiel said. “Silicon Valley likes to think of itself as sort of cosmopolitan or globalist, but I think that’s not actually what’s going on here,” he told “Fox & Friends.” “It is just sort of an insular form of parochialism. Maybe it’s borderline autistic, so it’s a complete incuriosity about the rest of the world.” Thiel, an early Trump supporter, has been critical of Google over its working relationship

DES MOINES — Iowa, a decade ago, humbled Joe Biden. Now it has a chance to redeem him. His last presidential race ended abruptly in 2008 after he placed fifth in the state’s crucial Democratic caucuses, garnering less than 1% of the vote in the first contest of the primary season. (Snip) Biden, with his centrist political brand, faces a special challenge here: Iowa’s caucusgoers tend to be very liberal. They nearly delivered victory to Sanders in 2016. What’s more, the state is overwhelmingly white, so it does not play to Biden’s strength among African American voters, who are a

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders said the U.S. could afford universal healthcare, canceling student debt and making tuition free at public colleges— by slapping higher taxes on wealthy individuals and big companies in order to pay for it all. Addressing a room in Miami on Thursday at the annual National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) Convention, the 2020 Democratic presidential contender elaborated on his campaign proposal to cancel federal student loans for 45 million Americans, and make public higher education free. These proposals aren’t cheap: In total, both plans would cost American taxpayers somewhere in the range of $30- 40 trillion

Former Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday snapped at a reporter from a right-wing outlet who said he misquoted President Trump's statement on white supremacists who clashed with counterprotesters in Charlottesville, Va., in 2017. Trump’s infamous response — that there were “very fine people on both sides” of the Charlottesville episode — drew widespread outrage among Democrats, Republicans and even members of his administration. Speaking to reporters at the Iowa State Fair, Biden was accused by Joel Pollak, host of “Breitbart News Tonight” on Sirius XM radio, of misquoting Trump. Pollak suggested Trump condemned the neo-Nazis who organized the rally.

On Tuesday, Mayor Nan Whaley described Trump's rhetoric as painful to many in her community ahead of the president's scheduled visit. "I'm disappointed with his remarks," Whaley said.

Jeffrey Epstein, the millionaire financier and accused sex trafficker, is dead by apparent suicide, according to the U.S. Justice Department. Epstein was in his federal jail cell in Manhattan but was not on suicide watch at the time of his death, multiple people familiar with the investigation told NBC News. His death comes a little over two weeks after he was found injured and in a fetal position in his cell at the federal Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan. He was semiconscious with marks on his neck at the time. In July, two sources told NBC News that Epstein was on suicide watch.

The United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a report on Thursday that calls for letting agricultural land return to the wilderness and for people to eat more plants and fewer animals. The report reiterates the globalist organization’s claim that man’s use of natural resources to improve people’s lives around the world is making “global warming” worse and will make food more scarce, more expensive, and less nutritional. “The cycle is accelerating,” NASA climate scientist Cynthia Rosenzweig, a co-author of the report, said in an Associated Press report. “The threat of climate change affecting people’s food on their dinner table is increasing.”
