Protesters Continue to Target Ferguson Convenience Store in the Name of Michael Brown

Jesse Bogan, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, August 27, 2018
Protesters have been gathering outside of Ferguson Market and Liquor since Aug. 9 — the fourth anniversary of the police shooting death of Michael Brown Jr. — calling on the convenience store to take more ownership of its role in the saga and submit to a list of requests.

Brown had just left the store before the fatal skirmish with then-Officer Darren Wilson in the street near Canfield Green apartments in 2014. After the shooting, Ferguson police released a surveillance clip from the store indicating that Brown had stolen cigarillos and shoved a store clerk.

My Take - You just can't make this stuff up.  This is never going to end and if the owner want peace...close the store and let them do without.  There's a reason why black neighborhoods with once thriving business districts are now filled with empty rotting stores, at times whole blocks of deteriorating buildings.  Brown was a thug and a thief.  The people pushing this clabber are thugs and thieves, of a different stripe, but thugs and thieves nonetheless.  It wasn't enough they burned down their homes and businesses in support of a thug, now they want to destroy what's left, in the name of a thug.  The black community in America is unfixable. Too many illigimate children and too many excuses for their own failures.  Furgeson is doomed!
