Judge Denies Petitions To Release Michael Brown’s Juvenile Records
Filing for the release of of a deceased teenager’s juveinile records by self-deemed ‘”journalists’ is simply whoremongering.The unarmed Ferguson, Missouri, teenager who was gunned down by a police officer may or may not have been a righteous citizen, but we’ll never know since his life was taken by Darren Wilson, after he fired at least 11 bullets at Michael Brown.
[su_center_ad]On Tuesday, St. Louis County judge denied a motion to release the juvenile record of Michael Brown, according to Talking Points Memo.
Two different media organizations filed lawsuits last week requesting that a judge to release any juvenile arrest records for Brown.
Family Court Judge Ellen Levy Siwak denied the request without giving a reason, according to the Post-Dispatch.
While the court will not release Brown’s juvenile arrest record, a Missouri court official reportedly said that Brown was never convicted of a serious felony as a juvenile.
Even with the revelation that the deceased teenager has never been convicted of a top felony, there are two different entities trying to blame the victim of a fatal shooting.
The Rude Pundit wrote on the 14th of last month:
Let’s be fucking clear about Michael Brown: It doesn’t matter if he was the biggest drug dealer in the St. Louis metropolitan area.
It doesn’t matter if he was the baddest gangsta in the Ferguson ‘hood.
It doesn’t matter if he was the biggest pimp in the state. It doesn’t matter if he had committed robberies or purse snatchings.
It doesn’t matter how many gang signs he flashed with his hands. It doesn’t matter if he said, “Fuck tha police” every chance he got.
It doesn’t matter if he flipped off cops or grabbed his junk while looking at them. None of that justifies being gunned down by a police officer. None of it.
Of course, Michael Brown wasn’t any of the above.
Not that that matters to those seeking to demonize the victim. The police are not judge, jury and executioner. If they were, each one of us would be dead. We all have a past. I know that I do. Please, don’t shoot me. I’m just like you: I made mistakes. Mine were probably far worse than anything this teenager may or may not have done. Maybe Michael did, and maybe he didn’t. That shouldn’t be the focus of this discussion. Just take a deep breath and remember your own past. [su_csky_ad]
