The Michael Brown shooting has caused a lot of anguish due to the Ferguson riots, but now it is being the claimed the family of Mike Brown attacked and assaulted each other over money being made from products featuring Michael Brown photos.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, a Michael Brown shooting grand jury witness from Ohio claims to have seen the scenario with Officer Darren Wilson unfold from start to finish. If the grand jury announces a verdict of “not guilty,” it’s already being expected that another Ferguson riot will erupt. This possibility has Missouri police already stocking up on riot gear in preparation for any potential threats. The Michael Brown shooting has already resulted in a riot at the Ferguson police station, where protesters invaded and demanded “justice” for Mike Brown’s death.
Earlier this week, a 911 call went out when Brown’s mother, Lesley McSpadden, was allegedly involved in a violent brawl with her son’s grandmother and cousin. The alleged fight even took place only a few blocks from where the Michael Brown shooting occurred.
According to the police reports, Brown’s Grandmother, Pearlie Gordon, along with Brown’s cousin, Tony Petty, were selling t-shirts and other Michael Brown shooting merchandise.
When McSpadden arrived in a car, witnesses say she yelled, “You can’t sell this s**t!”
In response, one of the relatives demanded that McSpadden prove she had a patent on Michael Brown shooting merchandise.
Police say that’s when an unidentified person with McSpadden assaulted Petty with either a metal pipe or a pole, striking the man in the face violently. According to Fox News, police have not arrested any member of the family at this time, although it’s said that surveillance cameras may have captured the fight on video.
American Thinker believes this incident may sway some opinions when it comes to the Michael Brown shooting case.
“Hitting relatives with pipes and stealing their take, if true, won’t exactly win the family public support. And $1400? Seems like a lot of money to make. How many people could shell out $25 to $30 per shirt or more in that area? Being aggrieved sure is profitable but the Brown family will have to learn to get along if they want a bigger payoff. If Mama McSpadden shows up on a surveillance video swinging a metal pole she might have to forget about setting up a ‘Mike Brown Foundation.'”
