Any day now a grand jury will announce whether or not they will charge Darren Wilson with the August shooting death of strong-armed robber and thug Michael Brown. All indications are that the police officer was justified and will not face criminal prosecution for the self-defense killing. It is also extremely unlikely that the US Justice department will file civil rights violation charges in the case.
Unwilling to accept that their son was responsible for his own death, Brown’s parents went before the United Nations to demand that the largely symbolic organization arrest Officer Wilson for torture and human rights violations.
Armed with the kooky notion that the UN somehow has authority over the United States, Lesley McSpadden (angry mom) and Michael Brown Sr. (proud papa) spoke to the United Nations Committee Against Torture in Geneva, Switzerland today.
McSpadden didn’t say anything about the investigation into her own violent robbery, but was quite vocal to CNN about her violent robbery suspect son:
“We need the world to know what’s going on in Ferguson and we need justice. We need answers and we need action. And we have to bring it to the U.N. so they can expose it to the rest of the world, what’s going on in small town Ferguson,” said McSpadden.
