"

Details of the official county autopsy of Michael Brown, the black teenager who was gunned down in Ferguson, Mo., were leaked today to the Washington Post. Among the findings was the revelation that the victim had marijuana in his system at the time of his death at the hands of police officer Darren Wilson on August 9.

How this fact will affect the investigation of his death or any potential prosecution of the officer who killed him is unclear, but one thing is certain: It absolutely should not matter.

Who cares if Michael Brown smoked weed? (via micdotcom)

Uh… did they do a toxicology on the officer, as well?? Every time a bus driver gets into an accident, he or she gets drug tested; and if a driver works for UPS or FedEX, they lose their job. I’m thinking a police officer should have to make a decision when firing their weapon, or when using force: if they kill, no matter the circumstances or whom is the target, the outcome is certain: the officer gets drug tested and loses the job to someone else. This way cops would know they have something more to lose, and have some of their skin in the game than just pulling a trigger and having a hearing. Of course, he or she would be subject to criminal prosecution (like everyone else) if the circumstances warranted an indictment. I don’t know any cops who have actually killed, and I could imagine the ones who have killed should probably take a break and step down, anyway. To avoid making a career out of killing would probably serve cops, and everyone else, better than putting them back out on the street.

This week I devoted much of my blog to covering the events in Ferguson, Missouri, and the posts of links and photos that I compiled received thousands of likes and re-blogs. I went from having a few hundred followers to well over 1,000, and find myself with a much larger audience.

In the last…

"Chief says officer Darren Wilson is devastated. Mike Brown unavailable for comment about his feelings because he’s dead."

Any attempt to discuss a dead black child’s character or education is the same as discussing a rape victims clothing and sex history. It’s an assassination attempt on the victim done to rationalize the real crime and protect the predator.
