KKK Wants to Reward Cop Who Shot Black Teen

In case you thought the situation in Ferguson, Missouri couldn’t get any more hideous and appalling than it already was, now the KKK is raising money to reward the police officer who started the whole thing by shooting an unarmed black teenager.

The South Carolina-based New Empire Knights of the Ku Klux Klan says its Missouri chapter is raising money for the still unidentified white police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown, 18, who was scheduled to begin college classes this week.

“We are setting up a reward/fund for the police officer who shot this thug,” the Klan group said in an email. “He is a hero! We need more white cops who are anti-Zog and willing to put Jewish controlled black thugs in their place. Most cops are cowards and do nothing while 90% of interracial crime is black (and non-white) on white.”…

The social turmoil that has erupted around Brown’s death has proven too appealing for the Klan, which in recent weeks has been quick to capitalize on a series of racially charged news events. Last week, for example, a Klan chapter in Arizona called for “corpses” in response to a feared influx of children seeking asylum as violence in Latin America forced their families to send them northward. But about St. Louis, their rhetoric has turned vile and predictable.

“We know that Michael Brown was nothing more than a punk. The media and others are painting him out to be a ‘good son’ and ‘great kid.’ The blacks of Missouri are showing their love of him by rioting, attacking and shooting people. Nothing new,” the chapter wrote on its blog.

Yep, nothing new. Racist assholes still being racist assholes.

    ZOG? Jewish controlled? My god, he just got off message! Remember that the KKK is just supposed to be about having pride in one’s race!

    With a few simple substitutions.this could have been written by at least one of the frequent commentators here at Dispatches: “We need more people who are opposed to Islam and willing to put Mullah-controlled Palestinians in their place” (and variations on that theme).

  3. blf says

    “We know that Michael Brown was nothing more than a punk.”

    Supposing, for sake of argument, that we actually do “know” that, why would being a fan of a certain genre of music validate an apparent extrajudicial execution?

     

    (With the obvious exception of Country “Music”, of course… </snark> )

    @blf : Huh? Way to derail dude!

    Mullah (Hamas y’mean?) controlled Palestinians are fine by me – as long as they don’t, y’know, shoot rockets and commit or try to commit terrorist atrocities against innocent people.

    If somebody be shot at den dey haz de right ta shoot back yeah? So, um, don’t start the shooting would be the “moral” of that one ja?

    As for the KKK? Fuck those douchebags!

  5. StevoR : Free West Papua, free Tibet, let the Chagossians return! says

    PS. Anyone being controlled by a Mullah (or Ayatollah, Imam, Hamas Jihadist leader or whatever else) -probably not the best thing for them don’chya reckon?

    Ya gotta say at least the Rabbis teach you to think and respect argument yeah? Jewish culture is famously intellectual and pro-debate and discussion and academia. ( Famous for humour and scientific achievement and not very deliberately creating atheists and humanists too.)

    Islamic culture esp. at present, yeah, not -so-much. More the opposite.

    One reason among many I find the trend towards following and supporting Islamism (typified by Israel and West -bashing) here on FTB more than passing strange and depressingly self-destructive and ignorant.

    Look, I know this will be unpopular, but the cop is entitled to justice too.

    We’ve heard from the community, and they are absolute;y right that the police response since the shooting has been over the top.

    That doesn’t necessarily mean that what the individual cop did was wrong.

    Judging before we’ve heard both sides is just as wrong as acquitting George Zimmerman before the trial. The ultimate outcome might be just as bad, but the cop deserves his day in court.

    now the KKK is raising money to reward the police officer who started the whole thing by shooting an unarmed black teenager.

    On the one hand it makes some sort of sense, since if there is anybody who probably really enjoyed the whole display and aftermath, it’s those KKK guys.

    On the other hand, I doubt even those guys could think that their public endorsement is in any way, shape or form helpful to the officer in question, or his legal defense.

    And on the third hand, given what’s left of the Klan these days, I would be surprised if they even managed to collect together much of a meaningful award. It’ll probably end up being two sixpacks of beer, a duck call and a set of used mudding tires. They were probably smart to announce the award before they started the collection, and not afterward.

    Please note that the protesters are predominately holding their hands in the air as a demonstration of their objection to police behavior. I.e., they’re not animated by the initial struggle and original shots by the car but instead; by the officer shooting a person in retreat with their hands in the air.

    I’m struggling to imagine that shooting a person in retreat with their hands in the air is anything but homicide; that’s given the context that this person was not suspected of any wrongdoing.

  9. Artor says

    But hey! Haven’t you heard? The KKK isn’t a racist organization, they’re just pro-family! They said it themselves, and if you can’t trust a man in a pointy white hood, who can you trust?

  10. blf says

    I’m struggling to imagine that shooting a person in retreat with their hands in the air is anything but homicide…

    I’ve been using the term extrajudicial execution. That, of course, may not prove to be correct, but I think it does help focus on some of the reasons for the anger of the protesters, the response by the local policeparamilitary, the astonishment and horror from outside observers, and (possibly) the rapid whirling of the spin / denial machine.

  11. smrnda says

    The cop deserves due process to determine if he will be put in prison as a murderer, but the public has a right to criticize the police and any and all actions of all police officers, all the time. Being public servants, the cops answer to the public, or they should. If police officers engage in actions which reduce public trust, even if they were determined to be legally in the right, I think a case can be made that such cops should be dismissed.

    Michael Heath @ 9:

    That’s one version of events. The police department (which I grant is not a credible source at the moment) has indicated that Brown was struggling for the cop’s gun at the time he was shot. Given that Brown’s family has conceded that the video of a strong-arm robbery of a nearby convenience store does show Brown as the perpetrator, it is hardly inconceivable that Brown could have become physical with the cop. All I’m saying is that we don’t have both sides of the story (which is understandable, given that the cop faces possible … even likely … homicide charges). Let the full story come out before we judge.

    Given the behavior of the Ferguson PD, I doubt we’ll have “”both” sides; the Ferguson PD is doing its best to poison the well and insure an acquittal. It is NOT in their best interest to have the full story come out.

    We’re discussing the same version of events. Again, no one is arguing about the initial struggle and original shots. Instead protestors are, and I repeat myself here:

    [the protestors are] not animated by the initial struggle and original shots by the car but instead; by the officer shooting a person in retreat with their hands in the air.

    So again, when you write:

    That doesn’t necessarily mean that what the individual cop did was wrong.

    I must object to the police officer’s behavior when the victim had retreated and had his hands in the air, and the cop kept shooting him. I can’t imagine that as anything other than a homicide.

  15. says

    I totally agree: he should have been detained, charged, and identified to the public ASAP after the incident, just like nearly all other suspected criminals, both in and out of uniform, routinely are. The question is, why didn’t the police do that?

  16. dingojack says

    From news reports it seems the autopsy showed six bullets hit the victim. Four in the right arm (one in the forearm, three to the upper arm) and two into the right side of the face. All shots had entered the front of the body.
    That’s what the news broadcast said.

    @blf : Huh? Way to derail dude!

    blf’s comment was spot-on, and your bigoted, dehumanizing — and, yes, derailing — response only proves it.

  18. says

    The police department (which I grant is not a credible source at the moment) has indicated that Brown was struggling for the cop’s gun at the time he was shot.

    That’s nowhere near what actual witnesses said; so I’m not inclined to take the cops seriously here. Also, their subsequent behavior, which is totally inconsistent with how police shootings are normally treated, diminished their credibility even further.

    Plus* — the locations of the bullet wounds don’t suggest a struggle for a weapon.

    How long before the local cops ‘revise’ or ‘clarify’ the story, do you think?

    * if, that is, one grants Australian News sources as being accurate

    I’m willing to grant that (with the exception of anything owned by Rupert Murdoch), given that our own “news” media have already made a mess of just about everything they touch.

  22. John Pieret says

    dingo:

    the autopsy showed six bullets hit the victim. Four in the right arm (one in the forearm, three to the upper arm) and two into the right side of the face. All shots had entered the front of the body.

    the locations of the bullet wounds don’t suggest a struggle for a weapon.

    I beg to differ. If two people are struggling face to face for a gun (a semiautomatic pistol, as most cops carry now) that kind of arc would be at least understandable. Consciously of not, the gun begins to fire, first hits the forearm and as they struggle goes up the upper arm in succession until the face wounds. If anything, that would be inconsistent with a retreating person who a cop decides to execute. Cops are taught to shoot mid-torso, not arms or even heads … you are much more likely to hit that target and disable/kill the person you are shooting at.

    It has to be noted that the Justice Department has ordered a new, independent autopsy, so we’ll see if that holds up.

    Again, I’m not trying to acquit the cop, just saying that few, if any, rushes to judgment turn out well.

    Imagine someone was pointing a handgun at your face. Grab the ‘handgun’. Now using both hands pull it down and to your left (assuming that both were right-handed as a majority of human are). OK now try and manoeuvre the ‘muzzle’ of this ‘handgun’ into a position where the bullet could enter the front of the upper part of the forearm (say 1.5 inches below the elbow)…
