Louis Head, the stepfather of slain teenager Michael Brown, is reportedly in hot water for his offensive comments following the grand jury’s decision not to indict Ferguson police officer, Darren Wilson. For those who missed it, a clip of Brown’s stepfather surfaced shortly after the grand jury’s decision was announced. He can clearly be heard screaming, “Burn the b***h motherf***er down! Burn the b***h down! Burn the b***h!” in the clip. Now, there’s a possibility he could be held accountable for his words.
According to Info Wars, Lieutenant Governor of Missouri Peter Kinder feels Head should be indicted for inciting the Ferguson riots. On Wednesday, November 26, Kinder did an interview with radio talk show host Laura Ingraham. Of course, the highly-publicized case and its aftermath was a major topic of discussion. However, things took a controversial turn when Ingraham mentioned Brown’s stepfather and the soundbite. His response has sparked quite a debate.
Here’s an excerpt from the radio interview.
“When you hear that sound-bite from the stepfather of Michael Brown, what’s your reaction?” Ingraham asked Kinder.
“That he should be arrested and charged with inciting to riot,” Lt. Gov. Kinder immediately answered.
“This is the lovely stepfather of Michael Brown,” Ingraham said sarcastically. “Was this where Michael Brown was getting his inspiration? From this guy?”
Then to make matters worse, several media outlets also reported news about Head’s alleged affiliation with the infamous Blood gang. Brown himself has also reportedly been captured holding up gang signs in pictures. So, of course, Head’s actions have sparked more controversy.
As the conversation went on, Ingraham sarcastically cited how rioting protestors have insulted and diluted the actual message a civil rights movement should exude. Since many feel looting liquor, clothing, and appliance stores has nothing to due with justice, the true purpose for the riots has been questioned.
“Nothing quite says civil rights outrage like a fifth of Jack Daniels,” Ingraham quipped. “That really speaks to the great legacy of Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King.”
“Or a new plasma TV,” Kinder agreed.
