Beautiful song dedicated to Mike Brown. TY David Rovics
RIP Michael Brown. Unarmed teen executed in broad daylight by racist cop.
The town is mostly black, almost all the cops are white
You can see it right away, something isn’t right
There’s no funding for the schools and they’re being shut down
The powers that be don’t give a shit about the town
They were walking in the street, it’s the safest place to be
In case someone comes shooting, you got a better view to see
They were walking in the street, they weren’t hurting anyone
Then came a white man with a badge and a gun
His hands were in the air (4x)
“Get the fuck off the sidewalk,” that’s what the cop said
He cut them off in his car, fat face, blood red
The cop says he was attacked, and from a cursory check
It seems his fingers were assaulted by Michael Brown’s neck
There were witnesses who saw it, it was recorded on a phone
But the police couldn’t handle the light that would’ve shone
She was forced to hand it over so they could try to hide away
A racist execution in the middle of the day
He had just finished high school and was off to college next
Instead he was shot and killed with no pretext
The media joined in, called the community a mob
A cop called them animals while Michael’s mother sobbed
As of press time, at least five eyewitnesses in the Michael Brown shooting case have come forward. All five witnesses had distinct vantage points: One person was with Brown during the incident, one woman was inside her vehicle, another woman observed the incident from her apartment balcony, one man was inside his apartment and another man was standing outside.
None of the eyewitnesses in this roundup—save for two—knew each other prior to the shooting.
1. Dorian Johnson, Michael Brown’s friend. He witnessed Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson shooting of #MichaelBrown
During interviews with reporters, Johnson recounted the chilling confrontation. He said that a police car pulled up alongside Brown and him, and the officer—who has been identified as Darren Wilson—allegedly told Johnson and Brown to “get the f–k on the sidewalk.”
The two men told the officer that they were only minutes away from their destination.
2. Tiffany Mitchell, who was visiting her employee in a nearby apartment complex.
3. Piaget Crenshaw, the woman who saw the incident while standing on her apartment balcony.
4. Emmanuel Freeman, who reportedly tweeted about the shooting right after it happened.
5.The man who spoke to Brown right before he left for the convenience store.
