Why this petition matters

Started by Mykara Polite

Michael Brown was an 18 high school senior from Ferguson, Missouri. August 9, 2014 he went to a cornerstore with a couple of Friends and they were stealing snacks. When they left, the store, the owner called the cops to report a “stealing in progress”. The officer who answered the call, Darren Wilson, stopped Brown and his friend while they were walking in the street. There was an altercation leading Wilson to shoot Brown. After he shot Brown once(in his right hand), eyewitnesses say that Brown raised his arms in the air for Wilson to seize fire but Wilson says that he charged at him. Then Wilson fatally shot Brown 5(Twice in the head, once in the chest, two other places ) more times leading to him falling to the ground and dying. When Wilson was put on trial and they called witnesses, the called all the witnesses “notoriously unreliable”. Even with the fact that there was a physical altercation that took place before the fatal shooting, Michael Brown was unarmed. The cop was not in danger because after he shot through Brown’s hand, it would be difficult for Brown to hurt him. This crime may not have been racially motivated but he still murdered a man.
