Michael Brown’s dad before the burial. 
The emotion and all of the sweat…. shit is hard to look at, even if its only a picture

I didn’t want to reblog this because it’s hard to look at, but people SHOULD see it.
We SHOULD see a father mourning his teenage son.
We SHOULD see how a killing like Mike’s can take a toll on not only a community, but a family.
It’s as easy for young black men to become martyrs as it is for them to become victims. They can never just be humans. 
We can never just be.

Officer: ‘Put your hands on your head. Right here. Come on back.’

Barbour: ‘What is wrong? My kids!’

Officer: ‘How old are they?’

Barbour: ‘They’re six and eight and ten, nine. What are we doing?’

Officer: ‘Hold on a second, okay?’

Barbour: ‘What is going on? Oh my God, you will terrify my children.’

Officer: ‘We got a complaint of a vehicle matching your description and your license plate, waving a gun out the window.’ (Description: Tan Vehicle - Barbour’s vehichle color: Burgundy)

Officer 1: ‘Do they look young to you?’

Officer 2: ‘They do to me.’

Officer 1: ‘Huh?’

Officer 2: ‘They do to me.’

Officer 1: ‘Yep, they’re young.’

Officer 1: [To other officers] ‘Gun down, gun down, gun down.’

Officer 1: [As the child exits the vehicle] ‘Come on back here, son. Come on back here, you’re alright.’

Officer: ‘Y’all okay?’

Child: ‘I’m scared.’

Officer: ‘It’s okay.’

Child: ‘Are we going to jail?’

Officer: ‘No. No one is going to jail.’

Child: [Scream, crying]

Officer: ‘Hey, stop crying. It’s okay. It’s okay. Everything’s fine now.


No officer, everything is NOT fine now. You and your partners should be fired.
