Michael Brown Is Getting A Permanent Memorial In Ferguson

Dozens of teddy bears that memorialized Michael Brown were removed from a site on Canfield Drive in Ferguson, Missouri, on Wednesday afternoon. The memorial will be replaced by a permanent plaque honoring Brown, who was fatally shot by a police officer in August 2014.

Michael Brown Sr., the slain teen’s father, appeared with Mayor James Knowles in the Ferguson Community Center to unveil the plaque. Brown Sr. acknowledged that the current memorial site has become a safety concern and that he is content with a new, permanent replacement.

The announcement came on what would have been Brown’s 19th birthday, and followed a press conference announcing that Canfield Drive, the street where Brown was shot, would be repaved within the week.

Over the past several months, the memorial has been a place for the community to congregate and reflect on Brown’s death. In a press release, Knowles said that he understands the “situation is not easy for all parties involved,” adding that the “event will forever be a part of Ferguson’s history — but it is important that the community moves forward.”


If they want to put up a honest memorial for Michael Brown it should show his body lying in the street and say “Live like a thug, die like a thug.”

Meanwhile, some of those Ferguson protesters are pissed because they didn’t get paid:

Were the Ferguson protests a spontaneous expression of community outrage or an orchestrated campaign with paid “protesters”? It’s looking more and more like the latter.

Early on, there were signs that protests over the shooting of an unarmed black man by a white cop were less than meets the eye.
In December, IBD noted that most of the protesters getting arrested weren’t local residents but people bussed in from groups like the New Black Panthers, the U.S. Human Rights Network and the ANSWER Coalition.

Later, after the riots in Baltimore erupted, Fox News reported that as many as 50 social media accounts were tied to both those and the Ferguson protests, suggesting the presence of “professional protesters.”

Now some of the “protesters” themselves are complaining that they never got paid.

In mid-May, Millennial Activists United organized a sit-in at the Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment offices. The reason: MORE owed the protesters money.

The group complained that MORE “created a joint account in which national donors from all over the world have donated over $150,000 to sustain the movement,” but “the poor black people of this movement … have seen little to none of that money.”

A letter posted by the group went on to claim, “Organizers and protesters depleted $50,000 of the available funds and dispersed it among the people in the movement in no particular order.” They even started a Twitter hashtag to encourage MORE to cough up the money: #cutthecheck.

There’s nothing wrong with protesters getting paid. It’s a free country, and they have to make a living, too. But maybe these protesters should think about joining a union before they hit the streets next time.

You can’t make this shit up.

        I crunched some numbers, a decent 1 bedroom apt costs about 45k a year if you want a safe neighborhood with a doorman. I can’t believe this city is so “blue”.

        • Myiq2xu says:

          Our blue urban areas are becoming more and more like the Third World – the very rich and very poor, little or no middle class.

          • Lulu says:

            It is medieval. Peasants in servitude or hard labor and prissy dumb do nothings in semi-guarded buildings. It is not going to end well. Doormen are not moats. They already pissed off the police and don’t have personal armed retinues. As Soros is finding out the henchmen want to be paid.

    Wonder if we should put a plaque up for Officer Wilson for doing his freaking job that day ? It could read “Thank you for keeping the streets safe, sorry your life was ruined too ~ The Duke Lacrosse Team” 😀

      This topic was on Megan Kelly last night. The cops are not going to risk being arrested or getting hurt doing their job. Also a huge number are leaving or retiring. They can’t make cops do shit after they leave the station. Cause and effect is hard for some to comprehend. The public expressed a desire not to be policed as did the mayor and DA so that is what they are getting.

    Sounds good, but keep your eyes on them. The FEC Dems aren’t going to give up.
