The gentle giant wasn’t

I think they (the media) need to stop identifying Michael Brown with a photo of him in a cap and gown as an unarmed teenager. He was high, violent and huge (6'5", 289 lbs), had assaulted and robbed a small Asian store owner for something he easily could have paid for, and was struggling with a 5'10"policeman who received a call about the robbery, reaching in his car for the officer's gun when he was first shot while punching the police officer. For someone not high, a flesh wound to the hand probably would have stopped him, but he kept going struggling for the gun. That is NOT an unarmed, gentle giant. It's probably time for the media to leak the rest of his record now that the grand jury is over. After listening to the "step-father" (it’s never been clear if he is married to Michael’s mother or just lives with her) rouse the crowd of rioters to loot and burn Monday night, we also know his role model--maybe his record should be checked too. Where else but in the media do violent thugs get this much attention and sympathy?

Better check your facts, the police officer was 6'4" and weighed over 225. Don't you research anything before you just take their word for it??
