Louis Head is making headlines yet again. For those who missed it, footage of Michael Brown’s stepfather surfaced following the Ferguson grand jury decision. In the video, he could be heard yelling, “Burn the b***h motherf***er down! Burn the b***h down! Burn the b***h!” The controversial video quickly caught the attention of the media and many people began accusing Head of inciting riots. Although he could clearly be heard instigating in the video, no charges were brought against him. Now, that could possibly change.
According to CBS St. Louis, another video has surfaced and Head’s controversial comments are a lot more suggestive. In addition to the previous comments, he can also be heard saying, “I’m going to start a riot.” The video was reportedly recorded by Al Jazeera America the night the grand jury decision was announced. Now, the Ferguson Police Department is currently investigating the latest video.
“We are pursuing those comments and there’s a lot of discussion going on about that right now,” Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson told Fox News. Here’s the new video.
The new video follows Head’s public apology for his actions. Here’s what he had to say in a statement released last week.
“I was so angry and full of raw emotions, as so many others were, and granted, I screamed out words that I shouldn’t have screamed in the heat of the moment,” the statement reads. “It was wrong, and I humbly apologize to all of those who read my pain and anger as a true desire for what I want for our community. In the end, I’ve lived in this community for a long time,” he continued, “The last thing I truly wanted was to see it go up in flames. In spite of my frustration, it really hurt to see that.”
