Michael Brown’s Criminal Records With a Side of Crow

STOP THE RUMORS! DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE POSTING! Here are some interesting facts. The thing about them is that they ARE facts. But NOT about this Michael Brown.

Michael Brown’s ADULT criminal record:
Description: Burglary – 1st Degree { Felony B RSMo: 569.160 }
Date: 11/02/2013 Code: 1401000
OCN: AJ006207 Arresting Agency: ST ANN PD
Description: Armed Criminal Action { Felony Unclassified RSMo: 571.015 }
Date: 11/02/2013 Code: 3101000
OCN: AJ006207 Arresting Agency: ST ANN PD
Description: Assault 1st Degree – Serious Physical Injury { Felony A RSMo:565.050 }
Date: 11/02/2013 Code: 1301100
OCN: AJ006207 Arresting Agency: ST ANN PD
Description: Armed Criminal Action { Felony Unclassified RSMo: 571.015 }
Date: 11/02/2013 Code: 3101000
OCN: AJ006207 Arresting Agency: ST ANN PD

Also a member of the Vice Lords gang, 6’3″ and nearly 300 lbs.
What else would be found if his juvie record was unsealed ? How about this?
Brown has a second degree murder charge on his juvenile arrest record. This is the objective truth. This man committed a murder before he was 18 years old. Why should anyone applaud his behavior, or try to blame an officer of the LAW for doing his job?

NOTE: This was a comment at http://www.timesfreepress.com/news/2014/nov/29/several-protesters-taken-custody-ferguson/. The comments have now been removed.

Upon doing my research, I found this on Scopes dot com which actually researches rumors:

“Cynthia Harcourt, a lawyer for the juvenile officer of St. Louis County Family Court, said after the hearing that she could neither confirm nor deny the existence of a juvenile record for Mr. Brown. Missouri state law prohibits the records of most juvenile court proceedings from being released to the public. But she said Mr. Brown had no juvenile cases involving serious felony charges or convictions, including murder, robbery and assault with a deadly weapon. Those felony records would not be required to be confidential and would have been released, but none exist for Mr. Brown, Ms. Harcourt said.

Additionally, local news sources confirmed that Mike Brown was not facing any criminal complaints at the time of his death.

The list of charges that are cited in the “Example” block above and proffered as documenting Michael Brown’s criminal record above appear to have been drawn from a Missouri court search in which someone found a case involving some other Michael Brown and mistakenly assumed that person was the teenager killed in Ferguson. However, that case record (3SL-CR12675-01, ST V MICHAEL R BROWN) referenced someone with a similar but different name (Michael R. Brown vs. Michael Brown, Jr.), who lived in a different Missouri town (Troy vs. Crestwood) and was born in a different year (1997 vs. 1996) than the Michael Brown who was shot in Ferguson.

Michael Brown had no arrests for any serious crimes.  If he had, even as a juvenile, they would have been made public in Missouri.  I do not know who the Michael Brown is that has all these arrests, but he was not the one shot in Ferguson.

I have said it would not surprise me if he did have a juvie record.  I was wrong.  IF he does, it is for minor offenses. My apologies to him, his family, and my readers for not checking.
